Romantic Beachfront Retreat with Lap Pool, Near Todos Santos

Bedrooms 1
Space 700 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

1 BR, 1 BA, sleeps 2-3

Come escape from the stresses of your everyday life to a tranquil, private resort-like setting.

Pamper yourself in this serene oceanfront oasis, away from the noise and dust of Todos Santos, where the magnificent sunrises over the Sierra de la Laguna mountains to our east often outperform our spectacular sunsets. Watch the whales and dolphins from the privacy of the second-floor shaded terrace of your casita. Relax by the pool with a book from our large selection. Stargaze from a two-person hammock. Cool off or swim laps in the 45-foot lap pool, with the Talavera-tiled outdoor shower and bathroom nearby. Wiggle your toes in the warm sand of our private beach. Enjoy a margarita poolside, relaxing at the bar of our palapa-covered outdoor kitchen with BBQ, where you cook the fish you caught today.

Privacy and Comfort: Your casita provides you with complete privacy and features a custom kitchen with marble counter tops, fully equipped including full-size refrigerator and stove, coffee maker, coffee grinder, microwave, toaster, blender. Although the casita is technically a studio, the sleeping area is completely separated from the living area by a low wall, providing some added privacy to both areas. The Talavera-tiled bathroom has a large shower and a hand-painted Mexican sink. We also supply a hairdryer and cozy terrycloth robes for your comfort. The spacious lockable walk-in closet gives you plenty of storage and a safe area for your valuables. Our gated property provides ample secure parking.

Your Home Away From Home: Our guests often tell us they enjoy being close enough to Todos Santos or Cabo San Lucas to enjoy what they offer, but love coming 'home' the the serenity and privacy we provide here.

There is tennis nearby. Private yoga or classes are also available. Enjoy a massage in the privacy of your casita. Other spa treatments on site can be arranged.

Our beach is a natural nesting ground for the protected sea turtles. You are invited to participate in the release of turtle hatchlings - always a thrill!

Villa Puesta del Sol is a non-smoking property. Children over 12 welcome.

This property and owner are properly registered with the Mexican government.

Total relaxation and the perfect host

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing two week vacation at Melanie's casita. Everything was just as described and then some. The property is right on a long expanse of beach where two people constitutes a crowd. It is an active turtle nesting beach and protected. The casita is very comfortable and being on the second floor, the breeze blowing through is wonderful. There are lots of towels, pillows and blankets available if the ones on the comfortable bed were not to your liking. Robes are hanging in the closet for your use. There is a full kitchen, plus the palapa bar by the pool with a grill for your use. The pool is for the guests use and is kept immaculate and fresh beach towels are always on the lounge chairs. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves and the palms rustling is so soothing. Melanie was the perfect host, there if you needed anything, and very respectful of privacy as well. She checked regularly to see if there was anything needed and if anything could be improved for future visitors. This was our second trip to the Todos Santos area and we love the place and the people. You do need a vehicle to really get around and enjoy it all, and the property is gated and secured to park your vehicle in when you are back from your travels. There are lots of great restaurants and some of the ones we made it to on this trip were Marina's in El Pescadero (we had a fantastic Christmas Eve dinner there) and Barracuda's in Cerritos (run out of a food truck with great ceviche and tacos - but get there early because they frequently run out of food!). Thank you Melanie for a wonderfully relaxing vacation. We miss you already and hope to return again! Marla and Jim

"My wife and I sought a break from hotels and three meals a day dining out and had a "test-stay" of 4 days at this lovely venue, which is exactly as advertised and reviewed, was perfect with its pool, indoor and outdoor kitchen, and sunset and moonrise views, and our hostess could not have been more pleasant, helpful and gracious. Before leaving we booked a longer return visit for next year."

I wrote the above in 2015 and we have returned every year since. Melanie is a most gracious hostess who freely shares her knowledge of the area, including the wonderful restaurants nearby.

Baja Magic

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Melanie's Casita. From the balcony we could see whales spouting and pygmy rays frolicking in the surf.. The inside was beautiful and we loved all of the windows and the views. The stay was everything that we could ask for and Melanie was a wonderful hostess. She did everything to make our anniversary stay just as we wished. The birding around there is great and the walks along the beach fabulous. We appreciated being able to use the outdoor kitchen and the swimming pool. All in all I could not have asked for a better VRBO rental and I would definitely go back. This neighborhood has a gate and so we've also felt very safe. Ask Melanie for restaurant and Excursion trips. We highly recommend the whale shark snorkel in La Paz. we opted for the the private boat and it was amazing. Thank you Melanie for a wonderful anniversary trip in your beautiful Casita.

Perfect Beachfront Stay near Todos Santos

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Villa Puesta del Sol, and it was even better than the first time. If you are looking for a relaxing & quiet vacation without the glizt of a typical resort, the loud music at the pool, or the race for a chaise lounge, privacy to sip a drink and watch outstanding sunsets, the opportunity to prepare your own meals if you choose not to go out, the chance to see grand whales make their way south for the winter, and the privilege to have as your host a wonderful woman named Melanie, then this is your place. Oh, I missed: seeing the stars that blanket the sky; the benefit of the empty, glorious beach (the swimming beach is about 4 miles up the coast); the palapa-topped outdoor kitchen; a super clean pool (with outdoor shower and bathroom); the immaculate private casita with the sitting area and fully-stocked kitchen; coffee on your private patio; and the benefit of being able to lie in bed and still see the ocean and feel the breeze from the palm trees. Todos Santos is fun; there is a turtle release program near town; it’s about a one- or two-hour drive to the other side of Baja; you’re only an hour from Cabo if you want to spend the day there. I mentioned Melanie: Not only is she a super person--she will help make sure your stay is the way you want it: She’ll arrange outings—fishing, snorkeling, diving; massages with the amazing Zander; will tell you about her favorite restaurants in both Pescadero and Todos Santos; will pick up fresh fish for you on Saturday morning; and will have your kitchen stocked with whatever you want before you get there. I can’t wait to be greeted with appetizers and drinks and her big smile on our next stay. I almost hesitated to write this review because I don’t want the world to know about this great find!

Serenity Personified

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th stay with Melanie. If you want one of your few decisions to be which way to walk on the beach where you'll rarely encounter more than 2 or 3 people, fall asleep to the sound of waves lapping the shore, have your breakfast overlooking the private pool and spotting the occasional whale spout in front of the casa look no further. Melanie is the perfect hostess. She will schedule events and dinner reservations for you with ease. If you like to cook, a truck comes once a week with the freshest seafood you can buy - the prawns are incredible. The fully equipped kitchen in the poolside palapa makes dining under the stars a breeze. Wind up your evening

overlooking the ocean and gazing at the millions of stars. If you want hot clubs or discos this is not the place. If you seek total relaxation and rejuvenation book now.
