About the property

Casa Palma Grande 2 bedrooms 2.5 bathrooms.

Casa Palma Grande is Studio style, each having their own bathroom . There is one big kitchen under a beautiful rustic palapa roof and an outdoor patio/dining area.

Our beautiful property is situated right in town, in a nice neighborhood. There is a large wall that surrounds the entire property, making it very private but within walking distance to Hotel California, restaurants, galleries, and other local attractions.

The outdoor living space here is amazing. Our yard is filled with various plants and trees. We have nicknamed our house 'Casa Palma Grande' because we have the biggest royal palm tree in Todos Santos. There are beautiful fruit trees and flowers throughout the property. It makes you feel like you're in the jungle.

We built our house slowly over many years trying to make it as special as possible every step of the way. You feel right at home in this safe and secure environment.

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!

Beautiful outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

I LOVED this property. It's located right in town although once you're inside the gates you feel like you're in your own personal green space. Green vines and beautiful white flowers surround the entrance as you walk through. The kitchen and living space is all outside and was stocked with everything we needed. Beside the living area is a beautiful, well kept garden full of exotic trees, tropical plants, and a stone path leading through to the two large Casitas in the back. The rooms are big in size and both have long concrete benches with pillows and a big dresser.

Each Casita also has its own bathroom. The water pressure in the shower is really good and we could get cold and hot water throughout the day which is a luxury not always found in Todos Santos.

The location was amazing with everything you'd need only a few blocks away. Every morning we'd walk the 2 blocks to the smoothie bar where you can get the freshest fruit drinks I've ever tasted. The taco shop on the corner was a big hit as well.

My only complaint is they advertise it sleeps up to 6 which was not the case. There's 1 king and 1 queen bed and a very small couch in the living area which was definitely not suitable for sleeping. She did bring us an extra mattress to accommodate our 5th guest which worked out fine.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a beautiful space and a great location in Todos Santos.

Thanks so much for accommodating us! We had a great holiday!!

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights over spring break with our two kids and it was great. I loved that it was walking distance to shops and restaurants and that you could pull your car into the property behind a gate. The tropical foliage was beautiful to come back to after a day of sightseeing and the beds were very comfortable. If you like unique places, I would recommend staying here! That being said, if you are unaccustomed to the tropics and cannot stand an occasional cockroach, it may not be the perfect place for you. Shannon and Veronica made the rental process easy and we had everything we needed. The boogie boards they have there for guests to use were a hit with our two kids at the beach. They also had a cooler available. There were plenty of towels (beach towels too), and the outdoor living room was a relaxing place to sit and read with an iced cold beer in your hand! It may be cost-prohibitive right now, but Shannon and Veronica, I would recommend considering adding a small "dip" pool over against the back wall. I think that would be a draw for renters and it would look absolutely beautiful! Maybe in the future? Anyway, we were VERY glad we picked this unique and fun place to stay and our kids loved it too!

Charming and private place.

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 5 days in Shannon and Veronica's place with our 2 young daughters and we do not regret our decision! This place has a large courtyard with plants and hideaways for the girls. The owners left some toys, and all you need to go to the beach (umbrella, cooler, buggy board) The bakery and mini supermarket are one block away. We managed to find delicious local restaurants on "Collegio Militar"! We went in the mornings to the beach "Los Cerritos" (my husband took a surf lesson!) and went one day to The Tecolote" beach north of La Paz to take a tour to the Espiritu Santo island. What a relaxing stay!
