About This Listing
Fall in love with the simple life in our charming, recently renovated casita. Open, airy layout with authentic palm-frond roof, ocean-views and local 'rustico' style architecture. The entire property is yours to enjoy!
Our funky and charming casita, Casabella, is the only home on it's fenced-in property. The house boasts two decks with ocean views, fully equipped and recently renovated kitchen, dining table that seats six, and a vaulted palapa roof. There is a loft bedroom with queen bed, ceiling fan and full bathroom, and an air-conditioned downstairs bedroom with queen bed, ceiling fan and a full bathroom. The living room includes a built-in twin bed that doubles as a couch. The lush property is full of palms, flowers, bougainvillea, mango trees, as well as plenty of parking. Free wifi. Pets welcome - dogs enjoy playing in the fenced-in yard and walking to the beach!
This is one of the first casitas on the lane, originally built as a long term vacation villa by an Italian family. While well maintained, it's still a Mexican beach house. The water pressure is low and the water heater is small but they get the job done for quick showers after a day at the beach or hiking in the hills. The palm frond palapa roof is beautiful but contributes to dust. The geckos are our little pest control buddies, but sometimes they think they own the place. Be ready for a laid back authentic experience :)
Interaction with Guests
We are not currently living in Todos, so guests will interact with our property manager, an American named Tim, or our gardener, a Todos local named Antonio.
It's a 10 minute walk to our beautiful, secluded neighborhood beach. One block to the best little grocery store in the area. It is a 10 minute drive to the legendary surf break La Pastora, and a 20 minute drive to the swimming/surfing beach Cerritos.
We are located 5 minutes north of town, on a little dirt road just off the recently paved road to Las Tunis. Far enough out of town to be quiet and peaceful, but close enough to be convenient.
We recommend renting a car, as public transportation to our house is non-existent and taxis can be expensive. There is parking available for multiple vehicles on the property.
Other Things to Note
Our neighborhood beach has a strong undertow, and swimming there is not advised. It's a beautiful, quiet place to enjoy the sand and sun while watching for whales, collecting shells and watching the sand crabs.
This house is our home, so please treat it with respect. Gracias!
Casabella Casita was a fantastic home base for our family's 8 day adventure in Mexico. We were late to arrive but check in was a breeze. The neighborhood is super quiet and feels remote, but still close to a store and short drive to our favorite breakfast spot, La Esquina! The trail down to the beach takes a little while, but the journey is rewarded! Todos was a fun little town and Cerritos was an awesome place to spend days surfing and relaxing at the beach.
This place is fabulous! Rent a car and stay here for a wonderful beach vacation. Todos santos is a great place to visit. Hosts were great! Rent a car so you can drive to the beaches with swimming, surfing, etc. The beach close to the house is great to walk down to but need to go elsewhere to swim. No big deal as there are plenty of other beaches to choose from.
Our family of five stayed at Casabella Casita for two and a half weeks over Christmas. The location was very convenient. Right down the street from the local grocery store, and a nice ten minute walk to the beach. The street had a nice neighbourhood feel. Todos Santos is one of the most beautiful parts of Baja, we have visited TS every year for the past 6 and this accommodation rated well. Lots of room and a great location. Laura and Fred were accommodating and even surprised our young family with a Christmas tree!
This was a beautiful home simple, comfortable and accomadating.
Las Tunas is on the outskirts of Todos Santos. A short walk to the beach. My family and I took long walks on the pristine beach witnessed baby sea turles taking there first steps. Laura and Fred offered us some great locations to eat and right down he street was a great cafe.
We loved our stay! What an absolutely fabulous place for a holiday!
The house was just what we were after, fully furnished and accommodated with a very relaxed, homey feel. We were happy to find a place of our own a 10 minute walk to the beach and not part of a series of units. Laura and Fred were the perfect hosts - the place was cute, clean with everything we needed. The garden is beautiful and sitting in the hammock in the morning watching the birds was a favorite past time! (As was admiring the beautiful Palapa ceiling!) Communication was great - clear and detailed directions, we felt at home right away. Should mention that when the propane got low Fred was there immediately to install another tank.
And where the cottage is situated was perfect for us - on the edge of town, a 5 minute drive from the super quaint village of Todos Santos (and a 2 minutes from the best gluten free flax and blueberry pancakes, at the La Esquina cafe!) We really enjoyed visiting neighboring beaches, including the more resorty La Cerritos, but were happy to be staying away in a quiet neighborhood. Great value for money. We can't say enough good things about our stay.
