Overview

Todos Santos House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Casa Geneva is a gem! Eye appealing from every angle!! Experience beauty and grace in this architecturally designed, spacious, yet intimate, home named for our 90 year old mother. This one bedroom, one bath home is simply elegant in design and furnishing while giving comfort and tranquility.

Inside, relax in elegant comfort. Or, outside, have your pick of appealing patios -- use one for breakfast, one for an afternoon snooze or one for reading. End your day stretched out on the built-in, cushioned sectional couch perfectly integrated into the large roof deck. Then watch, with drink in hand, as the sun drops over the rim of the Pacific Ocean in a green flash. The end to a perfect day.

The home's open kitchen/dining/ high ceiling living room w/wood burning fireplace is light and airy. Mature gardens garnish the many outside living/garden spaces. All patios are furnished with wrought iron, Sunbrella padded and comfy furniture. There are framed views of the sea from the living room windows and expansive ocean views from the roof deck

Casa Geneva is on a quiet and lovely calle (street) in a residential area of Todos Santos called Las Tunas, two miles from town, and is nestled among other one-of-kind designed homes -- yet is only a field away from the majestic Pacific where you can walk for miles, undisturbed, almost in solitude, serenaded by spouting gray and humpback whales.

We look forward to sharing this special home with you.

The perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Planning a retreat at Casa Geneva was the perfect plan after a long winter and work burnout. Tony and Janelle are very welcoming and great temporary neighbours to have. The house is very well built and kept up, very comfortable and beautiful. We loved being able to walk to the beach and sit and watch the sunset on the rooftop patio. The kitchen was very good for cooking after we went into town and visited the local food merchants. Bed was comfy, everything was clean, absolutely no disappointment. Todos Santos is a very welcoming town and good if you like to stroll around and don't want anything chaotic or pretentious. All of the people were very kind. Take time to see the local art and get some of the history of the town. We'd also recommend taking in the local beaches. Janelle has taken time to write up a good list of recommendations for food and activities. Tony and Janelle are obviously kind to the locals because if you tell them that you know Papa Tony they always smile and are happy to hear it. Anyone who loves flowers and gardens should take in Janelle's beautiful work. We would definitely return in the future.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a three day stay at this property. We are a couple in our late 40's. The house is simply stunning, the pictures do not do it justice. The rooftop deck is spectacular for sunsets. Fully stocked kitchen. Wifi. Easy walk to beach where they release the baby turtles. This was one of the highlights of our trip. Janelle and Tony are wonderful hosts and we felt like locals with their recommendations for restaurants and places to buy tortillas, vegetables and fish. Do not miss Mariscos El Compa Chava for the best ceviche.

A Gem in Todos Santos

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple in our early 60s at the tail end of a three month journey by car through Baja California. On our way down the peninsula, when not staying in hotels, we had the pleasure to stay in a number of other rental homes. None of the other homes we experienced came close to the quality and value of Janelle and Tony Palma’s Casa Geneva.

Casa Geneva is about a five minute drive from the centre of Todos Santos and situated a short walk from Las Playitas beach, one of the best beaches in the area and the home of Tortugueros Las Playitas, a renowned turtle sanctuary. The one floor house is well-appointed, surrounded on three sides by a beautiful desert garden and two patios, with the added bonus of a rooftop terrace. Inside, the decorating is quite tasteful and the furniture is comfortable. For us, because we enjoy cooking, the well-equipped kitchen was marvellous. Amenities include a television to play DVDs, an adequate CD player, and a reasonably fast, reliable internet connection. Moreover, although crime does not seem to be an issue in this area, the house is protected by an alarm system.

Todos Santos served us well as a hub in the south of the peninsula. It is a laid-back town, conveniently located outside of the frenzy of tourism. To the south, Cabo San Lucas is a 50 minute drive away, and 30 minutes beyond there is San Jose del Cabo. To the north, La Paz is about an hour away. All around Todos Santos, there are fabulous beaches and interesting day trips. The restaurants are good and the ice cream is to-die-for. We greatly appreciated being able to acquire organic foods from various vendors in the town.

Be warned that the house is so delightful, it takes will power and the need to purchase groceries, to get out and explore the Todos Santos area. Moreover, Janelle and Tony are wonderful hosts. They worked hard to make sure that our stay was memorable by catering to our needs and providing information about the area. Gracias, Janelle and Tony!

Beautiful home in a lovely area!

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to Tony and Janelle for a wonderful stay at their lovely guest home. Casa Geneva is beautiful, comfortable, and offered us an extremely quiet, clean, incredible oasis for a week of relaxation. The accommodations are over the top - 5 star! After enjoying a fabulous week, we extended for another week because we were enjoying the home and area so much. We enjoyed surfing at Cerritos almost everyday - just a quick drive, many beautiful walks on the beach in front of the house, sunsets from the roof, great restaurants (La Casita), a lovely kitchen to cook fresh organic vegetables. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and hope to visit again soon.

Peace and Relaxation in beautiful Todos Santos

  • 5 of 5

Lovely environment to get away from everything and spend time with your loved one. You feel safe and secluded in this one bedroom house in paradise! You can walk to the beach where there is a sea turtle sanctuary (SO CUTE!). We watched the little hatchlings return to the mighty azul.

You won't regret staying here!

Janelle and Tony are wonderful hosts of the house. I became ill due to my weak stomach and Janelle immediately offered to get me medicine and called her friends for advice.

Thank you for the memories and the wonderful house!

Nirvana: We found it at Casa Geneva

  • 5 of 5

A lovely home surrounded by nature. We spent a month at Casa Geneva in Todos Santos (early January to early February) enjoying consistently sunny, warm days and cool nights.

The casa is stylishly and artistically decorated, immaculately clean, and very comfortable both indoors and out. We loved drifting off to sleep to the sound of ocean surf with the cool night’s breeze flowing through the window.

There’s an abundance of local organic produce and fresh seafood available in Todos Santos; we cooked many of our meals and found the kitchen very well appointed. All water in the casa is filtered which is very convenient—no need to buy 5 gallon jugs or plastic bottles of drinking water.

The gardens surrounding the casa are lush and beautiful–hummingbirds zip past, orioles and warblers flit through, and butterflies flutter by all day. The rooftop deck is perfect for relaxing with a book during the day, watching incredible sunsets in the evening, and at night the stargazing is spectacular.

From the casa, it’s an easy walk to the beach where in winter one can watch grey whales pass by, marvel at mobula rays’ acrobatics, and see baby sea turtles released into the Pacific (google: Tortugueros Las Playitas).

We're pretty active and we loved having a network of trails just up from the house to walk, bike, and run in addition to the roads that meander through Las Tunas. The casa is around 2 miles from town so was an easy bike ride or a nice long walk to grocery shop, wander the art galleries, or dine in one of the many restaurants.

The mini-super next to the gym/juice bar on the way into town makes great tortillas de harina and frijoles. If they have fresh tomato tortillas pick some up—infused with flavor that one won't ever find in store-bought tortillas.

Tony and Janelle are warm and generous hosts and were great to have as neighbors. They provided suggestions for dining, finding the freshest produce and seafood, tips for checking out local beaches, and info about activities in Todos Santos. On their recommendation, we caught a couple nights of the Todos Santos Music festival; we loved the small venue at Hotel California. We also hiked a trail they recommended from Punto Lobos to the old sugar cane port—a little cove with the most amazing azure water.

Many thanks to Tony and Janelle for sharing their slice of paradise in Baja California Sur with us.

Owner's Response: Hi Julie and Jim Thanks for the great review, wow it makes me want to stay there myself. Where are you and how is it going on the sea of cortez? It has been beautiful here and the film fest starts tomorrow so that will keep us busy for the next several days. Janelle's Mom is here and enjoying her house but is in severe pain because of her back. Not much they can do about it but pain management (drugs). Well hope you are having fun and enjoying the other side. Tony
