About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

A Storybook Style Estate

Let yourself relax in a palace on the beach. It is the hundreds of small details that makes this artist’s home so unique and interesting. Wherever you look there is a sensuous curve in a relaxing fleshy hue. Located just two hundred yards from the Pacific, ocean views stretch out in three directions and sunset beach walks are just a minute away. Casa Nova will accommodate up to ten people with its two bedrooms and large separate palapa style guesthouse.

The great room hosts ocean views out every window and a fully furnished gourmet kitchen. This extra large space is designed for group activity. Granite countertops and a six burner commercial range make preparing a big dinner of fresh local fish and salad from the local market an easy enjoyable event. The island counter carved from local eucalyptus wood is perfect for sushi parties and socializing while many hands do the work. The kitchen stretches on to an extravagantly large mahogany dining room table (seats 12). At night a magnificent blown glass chandelier casts an even glow about the room. Two soft sofas lead to a massive stone fireplace in the corner. Firewood is provided for a small fire to warm the body, spirit, and conversation.

Master Suite

You will instantly feel like royalty as you enter the master suite. The master bedroom is spacious with plenty of room for spreading out. The ocean is visible in three directions from the king sized bed. This room features a walk-in closet, ensuite bathroom, and a masterfully built vaulted brick dome ceiling. Sliding glass pocket doors lead to a private sunset balcony over looking the vast Pacific Ocean. These features make this room a wonder to stay in.

Guest Room

From the Queen sized bed one can view the ocean through two arched windows. Opening onto the upper terrace the room is truly an outdoor, indoor space. Morning sunrises in this room are colorfully luscious and sunsets are beautiful too. With its sage green crown molding and Navajo style inlay design, it gives off a southwestern feel.


This building stands alone resembling a hobbit’s house with its double arched doors and canted walls. Twelve equal sides create a virtually round space 25 ft across. Ample windows splash light across the building’s one large room. Benches surround the room on eight sides. They are excellent for stashing your personal belongings out of the way during your stay. On three sides are counters one containing a sink. This room contains three double beds. It is an excellent space for kids. Surfboards can be slid into the rafters to keep them out of the light and harms way. Anyone given this space will be comfortable and content.

Bath House

Immerse yourself in our luxurious bathhouse. This building was designed with opulence in mind, helping you linger, taking care of all your personal needs. Modern lines are complemented with age-old flagstones. Fragrant jasmine springs from between the stones to cover the trellis with its love-inducing aroma. Shower while looking up at the sky. Like a Roman bath, this building with its enclosed trellised courtyard accommodates many people at one time. With ample benches, counters and hooks, all will have room to spread out their personal belongings and stay awhile. In one corner of this grand high walled courtyard the sauna is found at the top of a short stair. Passing through a charming arched door you will find yourself in a clean, compact, yet spacious sauna room. The wood stove that heats the sauna is stoked from outside the sauna room but within the privacy of the courtyard. You will find plenty of wood stacked in the bin for your use.

Memorable retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying here. The house is a true gem. We were delighted to have such a fully-equipped kitchen as we love to cook. The bath house and sauna were also a nice treat that we got to use. I loved being able to walk to the ocean each morning and look out upon the water at sunset from the upstairs patio. We also loved being able to fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean. We had a very relaxing and wonderful time here and would come back to stay here in a heartbeat! Thank you!!

Good location

  • 4 of 5

Architecturally inspired, good open concept main living, kitchen area. Located just off one of the main roads to Todos Santos and a short walk down from the house to the beach via Del Mango.

Another great feature is the upper level large patio with 2 (plastic) chaise lounges (1 cracked), a heavy natural 'picnic' table with umbrella, and a couple of (plastic) chairs and small 'coffee' table. The view of the ocean from there is fantastic and night star gazing wonderful.

The kitchen has a large water dispenser, plenty of dishes and pans, blender, microwave and a double sink (with unsightly rust stain). There is no dishwasher. A new hand held can opener would be nice as the current one doesn't work well.

The living room has a t.v. with Netflix, games and books. It would be nice to have a reading lamp near the sofa as it is quite dark to try to read with just the decorative lighting.

The outdoor patio has 2 round tables, one is a plastic table with 4 chairs and the other is a wrought iron table with chairs (in need of paint). The 2 hanging rope chairs on the patio are very comfy and there is a large hammock as well.

The design of the compound creates some challenges in that the master bedroom and bath and a guest bedroom are upstairs, accessible only by an outdoor stair way (with cool moon shaped night lights). The master bedroom (which leaked during a rainstorm) has a nice bathroom with double sinks (a leak under the left sink) and shower. The guest bedroom has no bathroom - nor does the cool downstairs stand alone bunk room with 3 double beds.

There is another separate building off from the driveway that has a shower, bathroom, sink, sauna and washer dryer. The 'roof' is open and covered with a flowering vine. All beds have quality mattresses.

Just down the main road off from Del Mango, you will find Cleo's Cafe with tasty food (including breakfast) , a grocery store with most everything you need and 2 farm markets with great fresh fruit and greens.

The caretaker, Eddie, is very helpful and responsive to any of your needs or questions.

Amazing, beautiful, spacious, comfortable, great location, fascinating architecture, attentive hosts

  • 5 of 5

I had so much fun here. Big great room for hanging out with a big family. If I ever have a family reunion it'll be here because there's a sleeping hut with 3 double beds. I can just imagine a bunch of kids having fun out there. We didn't use it this time. The bedrooms inside the house were nice. There's an amazing ocean view from each bedroom. The brick dome in the master bedroom is super cool. 5 minute walk to the beach. Just perfect. Oh, and the property managers were very attentive. They really did a great job.

Beautiful home for a family vacation in Todos Santos

  • 5 of 5

Storybook is what comes to mind when you look at the detail of the home and grounds. Very thoughtful in the layout and the character. The master bedroom is out of movie set! You can move about the kitchen and living area with ease when/if you have more than one person preparing the meals. Case Nova has everything you need in terms of kitchen inventory. You'll do yourself a favor by eating "in" as much as you can. There are, however, some exceptional places to have dinner out and getting back to the home is easy at night.

We couldn't believe how quite the neighborhood was over a holiday. Songbirds and wind through the palms were delightful. The ocean was a 200 yard walk to an empty beach. We sat alone watching the gorgeous sunset to a crashing surf. Probably unusual, but where can you do that?

You will love having rented Casa Nova.
