Todos Santos house description

This unique house is a 3 bedrooms beach house with pool designed by architect Jorge Gracia recently featured in in the architectural books '21st Century - 150 of the World's Best' and 'Architecture Now - Houses', published by TASCHEN.

The architecture mixes pure modernism and Mexican rustic style in a unique combination, allowing guests to experience simple but sophisticated comfort in a tasteful minimalist environment. Most furnishing are custom designed and hand crafted by local artisans.
The concept behind the design is to recreate the spirit of the vacation house of the fifties and sixties where family and friends would gather in a place without pretense or luxury to enjoy each other's company.
To that effect, the house is composed of three simple bedrooms disposed around a central living space which includes a kitchen with bar and a living room area opened to a terrace which extends and ends at the edge of the pool.


Things To Do:: Sunbath on the terrace and swim in your private pool while looking at the ocean.
Take mile long walks on the vast empty beach located right in front of the house, as you watch whales jump in and out of the sea (January to March).
Surf one of the many great surf beaches in the area or swim at the local beaches (Note: swimming in front of the house is not recommended due to strong currents).
Catch your own fish from the beach or explore the wilderness of the Baja desert.
Visits art galleries, dine in town at one the first class restaurants or at one of the many delicious local taco stands.
Go horsebackriding on the beach.
Gaze at the stars in the perfectly clear nights gently cooled by the ocean breeze.
The possibility are endless...


A special place to relax and enjoy company:: Our wish is to foster interaction between guests in a relaxing environment away from modern life disturbances so we have no TV or video games.
We have a music player with a CD library of world music, jazz and other relaxing music (you can connect your ipod) and a small library with interesting books in english and french as well as cards and board games.
If you wish to watch movies, just bring your laptop and a bunch of DVDs.
We have no internet access in the house but it is easily available in town for free at several cafes so you can check your email in front of an espresso.

                                                This home was very well equiped, very comfortable, with a beautiful and peaceful setting. We enjoyed Todos Santos very much. Elena & Aaron were very helpful and available. Thanks Greg for sharing your piece of paradise with us. We hope to return again next year. The only equipment that seemed to be missing was a microwave to warm up food. Other than that, everything was just like home. Our trip was long but well worth it. Casa Moderno was perfect for us. Sincerely, Dick & Ann

                                                Review #6324487 "R&R at Casa Moderna" My husband, daughter and I had the opportunity to spend 4 days at Casa Moderna this summer and enjoyed every minute of it. There is a beautiful beach for walking right out front; surfing and beach club at Cerritos Beach is just about a 15 minute drive to the south. The pool is wonderful for dips throughout the day. Our stay at the house was like living in a piece of modern art; the innovative use of materials and clean lines are breathtaking. The town is a short, albeit a bit bumpy, drive away as most of the residential roads around Todos are still unpaved. La Esquina on the way into town was our favorite place to start the day with healthy breakfast/juice bar (and wifi if you need it). The house has a well-equiped mini kitchen if you're inpsired to cook. This would be a perfect house for individuals or a family who just want to relax, unwind and spend quality time together!

                                                Love love love this place! Its a stunning property. Serene setting. Gorgeous outlook. Very comfortable. Spotless clean. Everything in perfect working order. The photos do not do this place justice-- its even prettier! We will DEFINITELY return again and again. Dealing with the owner and her local agent was very easy. Safe, secure transaction.

                                                I'm tempted not to write this review because I'd like to be sure the house is always available for our return. But that would be selfish. Casa Moderna is EXACTLY what it looks like in the photographs. The shots aren't gussied up for the magazines, enticing you with false promises. What you see is what you get: a minimal, clean aesthetic with the focus clearly on the stunning ocean view and peaceful quiet of the area. Waking up here every morning, clear blue skies and ocean rolling in the near distance, will make you wonder what your doing with your life; why don't you wake up here every morning? As for the town of Todos Santos, it's quaint, quirky and sleepy, sleepy, sleepy. It has one stop light. Only three of its roads are paved. It may not be for you, honestly. It's a small town of locals, lots of retired/ex-pat gringos, dogs in various health conditions, sand covered roads in various conditions of grading and probably more places to eat per capita than wherever it is you live. But get a decent car and head down any one of those dirt roads that bounce the hell out of you and you'll end up at a perfect beach, a perfect little hotel for sunset cocktails on the veranda, a farm, another perfect beach -- they all go somewhere pretty great. As for the food, Cafe Santa Fe is outstanding -- forget what people say about their prices, everything is pristine and every dish feeds two or more. Tacos George, a roadside stand so small you may miss it the first time, has outstanding fish tacos. Miguel's does a decent chile relleño. Barajas Tacos is your spot for carnitas pork goodness. But not to worry: you have your own kitchen in Casa Moderna. Most meals you'll want to take there because it's so damn peaceful. My wife, myself and two friends honestly had an incredibly hard time leaving after ten days of doing pretty much nothing. No cell phone, no internet, no TV. We played checkers. We made cocktails at 3pm. We cooked dinner. We never got around to the great surfing and horseback riding and hiking and ATV rentals and scuba diving and all the other things we said we were going to do down there. It was that hard to leave the house. Ya know, now that I think about it some more? Don't go there. You'll hate it. At least don't go in January or February 2013. That's our time!

                                                Recently I spent a month here from Feb-March with a friend to go on a writing retreat and we absolutely fell in LOVE with the area and house. Everything about it was so easy and peaceful. No bugs. Crashing surf. Friendly community. Unbelievable Shrimp Tacos. Organic vegetable stands. I was so enamored with the place I invited a few friends to visit for a weekend during the month. They in turn fell in love and one of them just recently had her birthday there for a week and invited ME as the guest so I got to go back 2 times in one year. I've traveled to all the continents and nowhere is as peaceful and relaxing as Todos Santos to me. Having a dry, mountainous desert climate on the pacific ocean with empty beaches is absolutely a winning combination. The ONLY down side is that it's hard to find beaches that are safe to swim at (dangerous currents and waves) and the pools aren't heated and often kinda chilly, other than that I could imagine myself living here half the year in these houses. The host, Jennifer is so incredibly wonderful and easy to communicate with, and her on site manager Nina is very friendly and helpful. I cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful rental. Not to mention, VERY reasonable prices! A must!

                                                Owner response: Edward, Thanks for the scoop! So happy you enjoyed the houses and Todos as much as we always do.....and, of course, La Paguita :) You know the upper house is for sale, yeah? And it comes with a classy soccer ball bean bag to boot! Thanks again! Jennifer

                                                If you're looking to relax while on holiday, then this house is your spot. It is close enough to the amenities of Todos Santos that it's still convenient, while keeping its private character intact. We spent nearly the whole week just relaxing around the pool, reading and talking! The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms are quite comfortable. The property is very well-maintained and Nina (the property manager) was available and helpful. The house also comes with a binder full of information about the surrounding area and its restaurants and attractions. It was as good as any hotel concierge! Our overall experience was fantastic, and we would certainly recommend staying here to anyone visiting Todos Santos. And anyone who is thinking about visiting Baja California Sur should be thinking TS, it's an incredibly special place, made even more special buy this beautiful property!

                                                This is a very special place. If you are wanting something quiet and relaxing this is the place to be...there are enough luxuries to enjoy your stay without the distractions of a TV and computer. You can stock up on food etc in the town so you don't even need to leave the house, but if you do want to enjoy some nice nights out or to be surrounded by some great locals and a few tourists (not many as there are alot of day trippers from Cabo who are gone by the evenings)The surrounding beaches are great for afternoon excusions, or you can just spend the day by the pool, and watch the amazing sun set in the evening. My husband and I were lucky enough to get an unseasonably cool stay for August, so were able to enjoy the sun and pool and it was very comfortable at night with just the fan as there is no A/C....so if you struggle with the heat, make sure you do your homework as to when you stay as that could be a real vaca spoiler. On another note, even though there were some supplies to keep the mosquitos as bay, be aware that they are there, and with not alot of people around, they will hunt you down....we just got in the habit of just spraying ourselves especially when we headed into town at night...they love your ankles. The beds all have nets, so there is no prob at night. There are are good mix of restaurants in town and all price ranges. There is a guide in the house that the owners have put together with their favourites which are all good. We would recommend a medium sized rental car for your stay, as the road to the house is hard sand, so a small car you would really notice the bumps, and if you are venturing out to other beaches, the sand is on the softer side...but no need to go crazy and get a 4 wheel drive. We would definitely stay again if we were heading back for a quiet break by ourselves or with friends.
