About Jeff & Rebecca Krida
Jeff & Rebecca researched Mexican "Hacienda" architecture in Guadalajara, retained a Mexican architect in LaPaz, and lovingly buit and furnished our home and casita on 1 1/2 private, gated acres just north of Todos Santos, steps from the pristine beach. We love to share this special place with guests at our private casita.
Jeff & Rebecca Krida purchased this Guest House in 2004
Why Jeff & Rebecca Krida chose Todos Santos
We fell in love with Todos Santos in 2000 while traveling from a ship in La Paz (Jeff was president of an eco/exploration passenger cruise line) to Cabo. Soon after that visit we found and bought our spectacular land on a rise just behind the beach dunes and began the 2 1/2 year adventure building our home and casita. With a walk over the dunes we can sit on our beach and see a mile in both directions, frequently in total privacy, watching humpback whales, pelicans, soaring manta rays and helping launch baby sea turtles from their local nests.
What makes this Guest House unique
For us Seattle city dwellers the night sky from the patio at Casita Cayden reveals the Milky Way from horizon to horizon with no light polution. The thump of breaking waves at night rocks us to sleep. Our morning coffee is accompanied by every color in the sunrises over the Sierra de la Laguna mountains and the sunset views from our west facing verandah make us feel like there is nothing between us and Tahiti!

Lovely and comfortable casita
Beautiful and quiet spot with amazing beach access very close. Lots of birds singing. Very comfortable and equipped with everything we could have wanted.
Thanks Catherine for being our guest and for appreciating our little piece of heaven as we do!
We enjoyed our stay at the casita. Great location - just outside of town and a short walk to the sea turtle conservation area.
Glad your visit was good Kai and thanks for coming! Jeff
Beautiful Setting but some work to be done
The Casita is beautiful architecture - lovely decor.
It is more than 200 yards to the beach but still an easy walk and it is a beautiful beach. The place is quiet at night with just the sound of crickets and geckos in the palapa roof.
If you are bug phobic this isn't the place for you as the thatched roof means you do see/hear geckos and their droppings and mice as well. I didn't mind that though - it was part of the local ambience.
The drive to town of Todos Santos doesn't take long, but it would be a bit of a walk if you chose and there aren't sidewalks most of the way.
However there were a few issues which I have highlighted for the owner as this was the first time they had rented the property. I anticipate he will address them as he was very keen on having it a good experience.
Firstly, if you are expecting a pool - don't. There isn't one.
The septic situation needs addressing and once that it done, I think it would be a much more enjoyable stay.
Thanks Ruth - you were a delight. To clarify - this was first time Casita Caden has been rented and now adjustments have been made: septic system cleaned out and gecko eradication and cleaning done. No pool at the casita but the Pacific Ocean beach is right infront of the property with easy direct access. Re "bugs" - all windows amd door are fully screened and weather stipped to keep them out.
This has always been the private "guest house" on the Casa Melaza oceanside estate. It is very special to us and we are committed for it to be for you also.
