About the property

This Casita unit has 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Todos Santos, Baja...What a great place for a vacation :-)

Marita's Casitas is your destination, a peaceful, charming, rustic Beach House with 2 separate Casita units! Another unit may be open if this one is not.

This listing is for the 2nd floor Palm View Unit... The Garden View unit may also be available.

Designed as a simple and comfortable place to spend a relaxing vacation, and only 300 yards to the beach!

This is a VERY Private unit, with bedroom, private bath, sitting room and full kitchen and WIFI...

There is also an additional full outdoor bathroom that surrounds you with palapa walls and open air above! The shower is positioned for watching the sunset over the ocean or the starry night sky above...

The 2nd floor Palm View unit has a master suite w/ en suite bathroom. Either a king sized bed or 2 twin beds are available, very comfy too!... A unique indoor/outdoor feeling palapa covered kitchen and great room with ocean vistas rounds out the wonderful beach house feel of this unit.

The 3rd floor yoga/sunset cocktail/viewing deck offers spectacular 360 degree views of the ocean to the west and the 7000 foot Sierra de la Laguna mountain range to the east

Great surfing, beach combing, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, birding, and just plain relaxing.

Or take a quick drive to the Historic, bohemian/surfer/artist/Yoga/Organic Farming colony that is Todos Santos, Baja! Aikido, Yoga, Tai Chi, Spanish language and other classes are offered. Cultural and Historical centers, Dining options from Fish Taco stands to 5 star...So much to do and see, so little time...

A short 300 yard stroll down the sandy lane to the beach where the sea turtle incubator is located! Five minute drive to La Pastora surf break (which you can see from the house), 10 minute drive to Todos Santos El Centro. None of the busy-ness and noise of town, but conveniently close to everything. The best of both worlds...

Wireless internet, but no TV. Ocean breezes and ceiling fans, but no AC...Its a beach house! A rustic blend of funky/cool and comfort, we think you'll like it!

Please see our website for more pictures, availablity, guest reviews and info.

Relax and enjoy this peaceful beach community.

C'mon Down!

About Alan/Aldo

Bequia, Marita and I are fortunate enough to be able to split our time between our home in Montana and our Sweet little place in Todos Santos.

Our lives have been based around running rivers as whitewater kayakers, rafters and canoeists, as well as telemark skiing and snowboarding and mountain biking. For many years we owned and operated a sailing charter biz in the Caribbean. We both enjoy training in Aikido, the martial art of Harmony... And of course we love to SURF!

We found everything we need here in Todos Santos... Come see it all for yourself at Maritas Casitas and experience a great and affordable Authentic Baja vacation :)

Alan/Aldo purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why Alan/Aldo chose Baja California Sur

We first came here on vacation to surf and warm our Montana bones in the tropical sun, but we realized what a truly special place Todos Santos is. Perfect climate, incredible natural beauty, mountains and ocean everywhere you look, surfing, sea kayaking, snorkeling, Birding, hiking, sailing, whales, everything we could we took a chance, followed our hearts and built a little place to live out our dreams...

What makes this bungalow unique

Maritas Casitas is in a quiet peaceful area, just far enough from downtown to feel away from it all, but still only a 10 minute drive to Todos Santos 'downtown'...Only 300 yards to a wonderful deserted beach...A 5 minute drive to a world class surf break...Great Mtn Biking...Stellar ocean views from every window...amazing sunrises over the 7000 foot Sierra de la Laguna Mountain range...palm trees and cactus...great neighbors and friendly locals... We think you will love it- we sure do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Marita's Casitas es Muy Bueno!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved my stay at Marita's Casitas in June 2015! Aldo went out of his way to accommodate my last minute reservation and I'm so Thankful! Absolutely loved the roof top deck sunrise and sunset views. The downstairs patio was perfect for birdwatching and the Casita even has a "Birds of Baja" book! Another book at the Casita which is a new favorite was Ann Hazards "Agave Sunsets: Treasured Tales of Baja". The outdoor shower was awesome after a day at the beach which is just down the street. Todos Santos is a quick easy drive from the Casita and I went daily to Hotel California for my Margarita and Caeser salad fix. Writing this review makes me excited to go back! Thanks Aldo!

My wife and I stayed at Marita's Casita's in April 2015. What a wonderful place. Close walk to the beach, where the newly hatched turtles were being released on a semi nightly basis. The view from the roof top was fantastic at anytime of the day, but especially during the early morning, before and just after sunrise, and in the evening. We did see whales breaching and playing several times from roofs vantage point. The unit is very comfortable, loved the breezy living area and kitchen. The bed was extremely comfortable. We stayed in the upper flat and loved it. Aldo was always available for questions and always provided an answer. He even helped me find the home of a lost dog.

Todos Santos itself is fantastic also. The restaurants are awesome. We did not have one bad meal or experience. The people were all open and friendly. The near-by beaches were a blast. We kayaked, snorkeled, hiked, and just sat on the beach a lot. We were there eight days and did not want to leave.

I would recommend Maritas Casitas to all, especially couples. Aldo the owner is always there for questions. We never got to meet Bequia, but I am sure she is just as nice and helpful. It is just a fantastic, fantastic place. We will return and really wish we could buy the place. Thanks Aldo for allowing us to stay at Maritas Casitas!!!

Marc and Carolyn.

Where do you live?

Vacation of a lifetime! Don't pass this place up!

  • 5 of 5

Wow. Where to start?

Well, a bit of background; My wife, son (5y/o), and I spend a week at Maritas Casitas in Mid-March. we were coming from the Pacific NW, so sun and fun sounded pretty good. However, we had be to southern mainland Mexico 7+ years ago, but never to Baja. We found out about Aldo's place from a mutual acquaintance, who told us when he heard that we were thinking of a trip to Mexico this Winter/Spring "GO HERE. TRUST ME."

Well, I'm glad I trust him, because this was an amazing trip, with the perfect accommodations. It might not be the right fit if you are looking for fine china, more space than you know what to do with, and luxury for luxury's sake, but if that's what you're into, I'm guessing you're not looking at rentals outside of Cabo San Lucas anyway.

To summarize: We stayed upstairs, and the accommodations are perfect for a family of 3, and 4 would be fine as well. Cleanliness was exemplary, and safety for the little one was no problem at all (he's 5, so we are out of the woods somewhat). The extra amenities of the outdoor shower/bathroom, 3rd floor sundeck, and garden palapa really make 625 sq/ft feel like 1000+. Even the smaller fridge has the benefit of encouraging you to explore the local markets for fresh frutas, leguntas, y mariscos! Ay, los mariscos! Dios mio!

We went to a different beach every day (usually the only ones there on a mile-long-stretch of unbelievable beauty), went horseback riding, tried all the excellent taqueria recommendations of Aldo (trust him, he's right), and went surfing at Los Cerritos, my 5y/o

son included! Lying on the board as the rollers wash you into shore counts as surfing, right? :D

On our final night, my son looked at me as we sat, enjoying an amazing dinner at El Zaguan, and said to me "Daddy, can we please come back here? Pleeeeeeease!?"

I said yes, and I meant it. Thanks for an amazing vacation Aldo, Bequia, and most of all, Marita!

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Hello Aldo and Bequia! I have sat down so many times to write this but could not seem to find the words to express enough gratitude for your incredible getaway and your gracious hospitality.

You both are some of the finest folks I have come across. The place was perfect! Thank you for accommodating our needs with such warmth and integrity. The trip to Todos Santos was far more than I could have imagined. Completely fell in love. It changed me in a huge way. Opened my heart in ways I am still trying to understand. I had not had a real break from building my business for seven years and did not even realize how much I needed it. Todos gave me more than I could have asked for in any vacation. The most incredible people, amazing food, art and culture. It feels like a home away from home. Your Casitas are the perfect getaway. And how I miss that beach! Miles and miles of heavenly sand all to myself. Yoga, jogging, reading, writing. Playing music in the garden with Bequia. Sunsets in the rooftop hammocks. You guys have really done it up proper! I really hope you both are doing well and look forward to seeing you both again. HUGE HUGE LOVE.

Great family rental, awesome location, lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from 9 glorious days at Maritas Casitas. Aldo is a wonderful host - great directions to the unit, local markets, restaurants, beaches (w/ surfing ratings for beginners), ice cream, shopping, etc... My husband, 6-year old daughter and I staying on the garden level. An inflatable mattress was provided and fit easily in the sleeping area of the studio. We loved the indoor and outdoor showers, outdoor dining, palapa w/ hammock, and exploring the desert garden w/ numerous cacti and succulent plants. The 3rd Floor deck was a great spot for sunrise smoothies, sunset snacks, shooting star gazing and whale watching. Martias is located in a very quite spot, just a 100 yard walk to beach combing and the Turtle Sanctuary... We'll be back.

Perfect for what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the ground floor of Marita's Casitas and found everything to be just as we needed. About 10 minutes max from town gave you just enough privacy without being too far out of Todos Santos. Probably 20 minutes from Cerritos beach (good beginning surf break). Walk to an amazing pacific beach (to rough for swimming, perfect for cocktail hour though) which also hosts a sea turtle nesting shelter. The apartment itself was well stocked with kitchen supplies and water. Made breakfast each morning at home! Comfortably furnished, very clean upon arrival, and WONDERFUL 3rd floor sun deck to watch the sunset from. Overall, would happily visit this spot again!

Owner's Response: So happy you enjoyed your stay! That rooftop yoga/sunrise/sunset/cocktail deck is pretty amazing isn't it! And now the road out to us is being paved to make it even quicker to zip into town, then back to peace and quiet at the casita! Thanks again so much! Cya next time :-) Cheers, Aldo, Bequia and Marita

Car: recommended

Maritas Casitas is located in the Las Tunas neighborhood of Todos Santos.

A quiet, peaceful little beachside neighborhood!

Only 300 yards from a deserted beach and 5 minute drive to downtown Todos Santos, we offer the quiet you need with easy access to the great little town!
