3 Bedrooms, 3 1/2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6. . .sleeps 8 with queen blow-up
After traveling to parts of Mexico during the 1990's, and always appreciating the climate and friendly people of Todos Santos, we decided to purchase oceanfront property in 1999. At that time, there were only one or two other homes in the Las Tunas area. Of course, now there is an entire community of fellow Americanos and local residents in the area. We started building in late 2007, and were able to complete and move in August 2008. We enjoy our neighbors, the lovely town of Todos Santos, and the cool tradewinds constantly blowing in off the Pacific. We enjoy fishing up around the LaPaz area, as well as locally. Jim and Shirl

Maybe if you were coming here with a family of 8 and had men with you it would be fine.... but we were taking a "girls" trip (both of us in our 60's). We arrived at night, with terrible directions, on narrow dirt pot-holed roads and got to this big house in the middle of nowhere. There were 26 steps just to get up to the front door (and then another 17 to get up to the bedrooms from the main floor!) It was just too isolated for two women - we had to drive back 2 hours to get anything that resembled more than a can of Spam, which was the only meat we could find in the local supermarket. And we couldn't find anyone that spoke English! Our "private heated pool" was cold until the last day we were there because the heater had been running all week and finally got up to about 80 degrees. The microwave was broken. It rained and so there was a leak in the ceiling. The TV didn't work and because we were out in the middle of nowhere we were scared and slept with all the lights on and a butcher knife near my bed! If we hadn't met Tim, the caretaker, the next morning when we got up we would have been heading back to Cabo looking for a hotel! Tim made us feel a little safer and we were glad that he lived on the property (except he plays in a band in the evenings and is not always there.) Tim fixed the TV, the leak, etc. but we still didn't have anything to do all week. The views are amazing. But you can't walk on the sand because it is so coarse it cuts your feet and you can't swim in the ocean because of the undertow. We felt trapped there all week with nothing to do. There is a nice billiards room and they have plenty of games so again if you bring a big family with you and you want to cook all week you could find plenty to do. Any water activiites though are back in Cabo - a 90 minute + drive. We had dinner one night at the Hotel California and there was a cat under our table! This is a very poor small town with stray dogs everywhere and not the beautiful resort area we thought we would be near.
Amazing Pre-Christmas Break
Amazing property. Spacious. Clean. Awesome view. Great owners and Property Manager. Todos is a great area! So much to see and do. And, the restaurants are fabulous!
A wonderful, relaxing week
We had a fantastic vacation complete with soothing sunshine, a heated pool, whales breaching off the shore right outside our house and wonderful accommodations. The owners and caretaker were amazingly attentive. We loved it!
Magical spot on near deserted stretch of beach
Wonderful stay here. Everything was in place. The master bedroom was lovely and the sound of the waves crashing outside the door was magical.
Exceeded expectations. The house and property are beautiful and much grander than the photos. Perfect spot right on the ocean, next to the baby turtle hatchery (we saw two new leatherback hatchlings crawl out to see last night). We spent a ton of time in the heated pool and lounging. Kitchen well equipped, beds very comfortable. We'll be back!
