Property description

This bright and spacious apartment offers a spectacular panoramic view of the ocean, town and mountains. Fully-furnished with an open-concept floor plan, it provides a relaxing environment for those looking for a quiet get-away. It offers a well-equipped full kitchen, cozy sitting area, and a king-size bed that can be easily converted to two twins. Patios to the front and side of the casita provide a great place for morning coffee, outdoor dining, and evening sunset viewing.

Casa Calera is perfect for those who are seeking a Mexican town experience that also offers privacy and solitude. Located on a hillside just above the barrio, it is off the grid for all except those few who live in the immediate vicinity. Hours passed in solitude and silence are often finally interrupted by the sounds of chickens crowing, music playing or dogs barking below, the vital sounds of Mexican life.

For those who enjoy the outdoors, the hills behind Casa Calera offer a variety of hiking paths in the unique desert landscape. If a beach sounds more appealing, great walking and world-class surfing beaches are only minutes away by car.

This small town of less than 8,000 people hosts an international population of residents and visitors who paint, sculpt, build, write, surf, perform, run businesses and enjoy nature. From Casa Calera it is just a 20-minute walk into town for fine dining, gallery browsing, shopping, and a stop at the local bookstore.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We arrived in Todos Santos quite literally by accident in 1995. Vacationing from Portland, Oregon we had planned to cycle the Cape Region over a three-week period. On the second day Janet fell off her bike and broke her arm. The nearest town was Todos Santos, so that is where we spent the next three weeks. We fell in love with the town and moved here full time a year later. After renting for 10 years we built a home and included a rental unit with it. Janet owned the local bookstore, El Tecolote, until 2011, and Gary is a retired builder/carpenter. Both are sixty-five years old. In 2011 health issues dictated that Gary enter a care facility. Janet and Gary moved to San Miguel de Allende where such a facility is available, though Janet returns to Todos Santos for regular visits. Kate Lewis, the new owner of the bookstore, now lives in the owners' unit of Casa Calera and manages the rental unit.

Why the Owner Chose Todos Santos:
It is easy to list the likeable things about Todos Santos. Physical beauty, small-town friendliness, unhurried pace, comfortable bi-cultural relations, wonderful restaurants, an evergrowing arts community. But in reality we did what so many foreigners do when they come to Todos Santos. We fell in love with it, and we don't exactly know why. It is an affair of the heart that transcends any specific reasons we can give.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We live just outside the barrio. Our views are spectacular-the best in town, and the largely uninhabited hills rise up behind us and offer wonderful hiking. But we are still close enough to the barrio to feel its vitality without being in the middle of it where the noise sometimes exceeds the North American comfort level. A fifteen-minute walk gets us to grocery shopping, restaurants and galleries.
