Overview

Todos Santos House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Mi Casa is a contemporary home, simple yet elegant, with open views of the ocean and the Sierra Laguna mountains, overlooking chili fields.

The house has 3 wide bedrooms (2 king size beds and 1 full size bed + optional california king size tatami) with stunning views from the numerous windows, and 2 baths.

The living room has a large comfortable sitting area with moroccan pillows, a fireplace and massive view windows over-looking farmland, mountains, desert and ocean. A floor-to-ceiling bookshelf divides the living area from the wide open chef kitchen, furnished with professional appliances. The decor of all the rooms is a mix of modern design and moroccan pieces, selected with care over time. All the bedrooms have fans, 14' high ceilings, and sliding doors with mosquito nets.

The living area and kitchen open onto a large cantilevered terrace facing west with wonderful views of sunset on the ocean, desert gardens filled with aloe vera and cactus, visited regularly by beautiful birds, and a 70 foot lap pool. The entrance walled patio facing east is perfect for enjoying the view of the moonrise over the sierra mountains, among citrus and palm trees. Here you will have one of the best night skies view, being out of town enough not to be affected by light pollution.

The house is nested on 2 acres of land north of Todos Santos, 5 minutes away from one of the most popular local surf beach, where you can also spot whales, go fishing or simply walk.

A couple of caretakers lives on the property in a separate studio.

About sabrina

We are an italian couple with a 12 year old son. We moved to Todos Santos from Montana, loved it and decided to build our home. We lived there until we moved to Puglia, in south of Italy, where spent three years. We just recently moved back to California, in the SF bay area.

sabrina purchased this house in 2007

Guestbook comments from the manager

The thoughtful design & layout of the home was perfect for our group. Beautiful outdoor spaces including decks, courtyard, rooftop, and pool all provided stunning views of the desert and ocean beyond. The location is very private & peaceful, as you access the home via dirt road, but shops and great restaurants are easily accessible via a short 10 minute drive to town. The home offers a great cooking kitchen, outdoor grill, well appointed bathrooms, wifi, a Bose iPod dock, and fireplace. Sabrina, the homeowner, and Rocco, our contact upon arrival, were very helpful with any and all questions and made us feel right at home. When it was time to leave, it was hard to say goodbye to this peaceful oasis!

More than perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a relaxing getaway or vacation. It offers spectacular views across desert landscape and

farmed fields in the valley below towards the Pacific.

House design offers views from all kinds of different angles and has all the functionality that

you need for perfect living. It's furnished and detailed down to the last detail.

The lap pool is amazing.

Owner is quick with responding and very helpful overall.

We would definitely come back any time !!!

Dreams can come true!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we pulled up to Mi Casa, I knew this would be a one-of-a-kind experience. This is an amazing house with beautiful landscaping and all the amenities needed to get away from it all. The surrounding landscape and views from anywhere in or around the house are stunning, especially from the corner windows that run from the floor to ceiling in each bedroom. Standing in the kitchen, you can see a gorgeous farm set below in one direction and huge mountains in the other. When you step outside on the back terrace, you see the farm AND the ocean. It is absolutely breathtaking. Oh, and the pool! It is absolutely perfect to cool off in, swim laps in, lounge by, and to experience countless sunsets that are often surreal. The many sounds of the desert and its birds provides a great melody for your dreamy holiday. Sabrina and Rocco were both very welcoming and accommodating, and I am most thankful Sabrina opened her home to us and allowed us to experience the unique beauty and serenity of Mi Casa.

Es una casa maravillosa, esta ubicada en un lugar privilegiado con vistas impresionantes, esta en perfecto estado, la decoración es increíble, es sorprendente ver las las lamparas tan hermosas y que generan una atmósfera increíblemente acogedora, pasamos unas vacaciones maravillosas no queríamos regresar a la realidad, ahora solo extraño  baños en la alberca (que por cierto es increíble), por la mañana y cuando el sol se ha metido, muchas gracias a los dueños por tener y compartir este lugar de ensueño . Esperamos con ansia  volver a estar en tan acogedor hogar.

Is a wonderful house, is located in a privileged place with stunning views, is in perfect condition, the decor is incredible, it is surprising to see the beautiful lamps and that generate an incredibly friendly atmosphere, spend a wonderful holiday did not want to return to reality, now only strange swim pool (which by the way is amazing), in the morning and when the Sun has gotten, many thanks to the owners have and share this place of dream. We look forward to getting back home as welcoming.

Beautiful house, serene setting

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing house. The style, location, architecture, amenities –everything- was really stunning. There’s a great open feeling to each room and area in the house, stunning views framed by every window, and very comfortable amenities. For those who like a modern, somewhat minimalist décor, accented only by great furnishings and the views out the windows, this is a great find. The kitchen is fully stocked, including a blender (which was useful for smoothies) and a high-end range. The openness made it easy to simultaneously cook and socialize. The location is somewhat apart from other area homes, giving the house a lot of privacy, great views overlooking the ocean in the distance, the chili fields behind the house, and the mountains and desert out any door. Very quiet during the day and the only company at night is the hum of desert sounds that come to life as the sun sets. Maybe 10 minute drive to town. It’s up a fun dirt road (so a high-clearance vehicle is best). For those in need of connectivity, the wifi worked smoothly and my U.S. cell on the AT&T partner network had no problems; strangely my Verizon cell network did not have any signal at all in the area (only in Cabo and La Paz). The pool is incredible – genuinely perfect for swimming laps and very conducive to enjoying the surrounding desert landscape. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mentioned that it was very easy and a real pleasure dealing with the owner, Sabrina, and the local contact, Rocco, who were both very responsive to any questions and made some great suggestions for local areas to check out.

A unique experience

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful and the view extremly great. On one side you can see the sea on the other the montains. We had a wonderful family vacation and we all enjoyed it a lot. We had enough space for everyone (if you travel with 3 teenage girls that is the most important) and the pool was so great. Most of the time we were there.

The kitchen is great, we cooked everyday for lunch and had everything we needed.

Todos Santos is very closed and we enjoyed a few very nice meals in the town. Right now the village is under constraction so that was not so nice.

To deal with Sabrina was a pleasure and she could give us some good advices. The houskeepers Landi and Luis are also very helpful and very nice people.

We can highly recommend the house but if you can, go during winter. These period of the time is very hot.... (we knew it before but it is the only time we can travel more than 4 weeks with the girls....)

We would thank Sabrina that she shares this wonderful house.

Owner's Response: Thank you Denise, I am really happy that you enjoyed your family time at our home. I am sorry that the road work in town is making it unpleasant if not impossible to walk around, Todos Santos is a cute place to wander around. And the season is really hot and humid, we had spoken about that, but I am glad that you are planning on going back to TS in winter, the best time of the year in my opinion is November! Best, S
