About the property

Casa Palma Grande: 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms.

Casa Palma Grande is an open concept living oasis. There are two separate bedrooms with bathrooms that can comfortably sleep a family or two couples. The rooms are always rented together so you experience privacy in the middle of the city.

Between the bedrooms, there is an open kitchen situated beneath a beautiful rustic palapa roof with plenty of space to entertain in the oversized dining area. The property is surrounded by a privacy wall that encases a beautiful yard filled with local vegetation and fruit trees.

We built our home slowly over many years adding special touches to make an authentic Mexican oasis.

About Veronica & Shannon Howard

Veronica was born and raised in Todos Santos before moving to Washington state in 2004.

Veronica & Shannon Howard purchased this house in 2008

Why Veronica & Shannon Howard chose Baja California Sur

This property was passed down to Veronica through many generations. Her grandfather gifted the property to Veronica and her husband as a wedding gift so they could build a home to visit often.

What makes this house unique

We built this home together to create a home away from home when visiting our family in Mexico. We have added homey touches to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome.

Want an amazing place?

  • 5 of 5

We walked in and said to one another, "Wow, we didn't realize it was going to be this great." We left a week later muttering, "Oh, how I wish we were staying."

We took pictures of the property to send to our friends. We spent every day until noon lounging and reading - because it was as good as going to the beach. We walked to great restaurants, hot dogs, views, neighborhoods, and the grocery store. The Mom who lives there was kind and helpful. The neighbors sweet. The beds soft and cool. And the overall experience a kind of informal luxury that's hard to beat. Yes, we'd go back.

Great stay all around

  • 5 of 5

We were there late Feb/early Mar 2017. The place was fantastic in every way. Great location, amazing outdoor kitchen and living area. Clean, spacious, and comfortable rooms. The kitchen has everything you would ever need. The one thing that would put it over the top is if there were some plastic plates, bowls, and cups for kids! We would absolutely stay there next time in Todos Santos.

An beautiful place to stay in the heart of Todos Santos

  • 5 of 5

Veronica and Shannon's home is an awesome place to stay! They have clearly put a lot of thought and energy into making their home a beautiful and special place. One of the things that we loved about staying there was that a lot of the living space is outside. The kitchen and main living space are under a large palapa surrounded by lush and gorgeous plants. There was also a great sandy place for our three-year-old to play. They had lots of kids toys available which was awesome. The kitchen is well-equipped and we had everything we needed to make some great meals. The casitas where the bedrooms are are very cozy and stayed cool during the day. The beds were comfortable and we had all of the towels, blankets, etc. that we needed. The location of the house couldn't be better. It is a few blocks walk to some amazing food and shops. It is really a great place to stay if you want to experience life in the town of Todos Santos. The beach is a quick 5-10 minute drive away. Finally, Veronica was very friendly and responsive when making the reservations. Her mother lives next door and was also very helpful in getting us settled into the house. We would love to stay here again if we have the chance to return to Todos Santos! Thanks Veronica and Shannon!

Amazing property! "Everything you need!"

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in mid July and absolutely loved it! The property was very homie and had everything you needed to make it a home away from home for the week. The rooms were nicely furnished, comfortable and supplied plenty of bath towels.

There was 5 of us staying here and it was very comfortable. It had all the necessities to be able to make your breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Big fridge, coffee maker, oven, water dispenser, all utensils - dishes, cutlery, cups, glasses, frying pans and more.

The garden was beautiful.

It had a bunch of mango trees which were ripe for picking and very tasty. It had a tropical feel with lots of beautiful plants and was well maintained. It had a sand pit and playhouse for the kids which was great and an outdoor toilet which was quite nice for those hot summer nights.

The La Casita was very homie, an open style kitchen and dining area where you could sit with family and friends and socialise very comfortably.

They had a lot of neat and imaginative decorative pieces which really set this place apart from your ordinary hotel room or guesthouse.

It felt like they really put in a great effort to make their guests feel at home but yet succeeded in creating a very artsy and unique lodging experience.

The owners also provided fans to cool off and each room was equipped with ceiling fans which were much appreciated after a long day exploring Todos Santos's local shopping, cuisine, culture and Off-road Can-aming with Black Sheep Motorsports which was awesome.

I would 100% come back and stay here again next time we're in Todos Santos!

Great location in the middle of town and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thank you and hope to see ye soon again!
