Overview

Baja California Sur House Rental Photos and Description

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.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

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!

Great palce - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent 5 wonderful days here and really enjoyed our stay. The property is located off the main drag on a nice residential street; within walking distance to everything. The place was super clean and the grounds were well kept. It was very relaxing to be able to just lounge around, read a book and drink a beer, all in the comfort of our little oasis. Or should I say big oasis, as we felt a little guilty that we had so much room for just to people. My wife and I are already planning to come back next year if possible. Also, the owners were very easy and friendly to work with.

Beautiful oasis in great location

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 spent a week here and loved it. We are both gardeners so we decided and to spend a bit of extra money to try this place. It is a very well loved and thoughtfully designed little world. Everyday we noticed new details that Veronica and Shannon had included in building this space.

We wanted to be within walking distance to town and this was perfect. It was on a quiet side street but less than a five minute walk to my favorite cafe. There is a also a great bakery, grocery store and amazing icecream shop within a block. It is not near the beach but we had a car and the off street parking was nice. (You can't really be close to town and the beach- pick one or the other.)

The living is a bit rustic as it is mostly outdoors. This was a plus for us as we love being outside and it was a safe place for our kids to play and explore because it is enclosed in secure walls. Again, this may not be the best solution for everyone but it was absolutely perfect for us.

GREAT spot in town.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place because the location was perfect. Did not need a car as you could walk to town for anything. Shopping, restaurants, home made ice cream! It is nice for a family or 2 couples. The 2

casitas make it very private, yet you are all close in one place. It does feel like you are in a garden jungle. I will come back again and again.
