About the property

1 BR, 1 BA, sleeps 2-3

Come escape from the stresses of your everyday life to a tranquil, private resort-like setting.

Pamper yourself in this serene oceanfront oasis, away from the noise and dust of Todos Santos, where the magnificent sunrises over the Sierra de la Laguna mountains to our east often outperform our spectacular sunsets. Watch the whales and dolphins from the privacy of the second-floor shaded terrace of your casita. Relax by the pool with a book from our large selection. Stargaze from a two-person hammock. Cool off or swim laps in the 45-foot lap pool, with the Talavera-tiled outdoor shower and bathroom nearby. Wiggle your toes in the warm sand of our private beach. Enjoy a margarita poolside, relaxing at the bar of our palapa-covered outdoor kitchen with BBQ, where you cook the fish you caught today.

Privacy and Comfort: Your casita provides you with complete privacy and features a custom kitchen with marble counter tops, fully equipped including full-size refrigerator and stove, coffee maker, coffee grinder, microwave, toaster, blender. Although the casita is technically a studio, the sleeping area is completely separated from the living area by a low wall, providing some added privacy to both areas. The Talavera-tiled bathroom has a large shower and a hand-painted Mexican sink. We also supply a hairdryer and cozy terrycloth robes for your comfort. The spacious lockable walk-in closet gives you plenty of storage and a safe area for your valuables. Our gated property provides ample secure parking.

Your Home Away From Home: Our guests often tell us they enjoy being close enough to Todos Santos or Cabo San Lucas to enjoy what they offer, but love coming 'home' the the serenity and privacy we provide here.

There is tennis nearby. Private yoga or classes are also available. Enjoy a massage in the privacy of your casita. Other spa treatments on site can be arranged.

Our beach is a natural nesting ground for the protected sea turtles. You are invited to participate in the release of turtle hatchlings - always a thrill!

Villa Puesta del Sol is a non-smoking property. Children over 12 welcome.

This property and owner are properly registered with the Mexican government.

Melanie and Guenter,

Thank you so much for such an amazing week. Melanie, thanks for being so organized and answering all my e-mails.

Serenity Personified

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th stay with Melanie. If you want one of your few decisions to be which way to walk on the beach where you'll rarely encounter more than 2 or 3 people, fall asleep to the sound of waves lapping the shore, have your breakfast overlooking the private pool and spotting the occasional whale spout in front of the casa look no further. Melanie is the perfect hostess. She will schedule events and dinner reservations for you with ease. If you like to cook, a truck comes once a week with the freshest seafood you can buy - the prawns are incredible. The fully equipped kitchen in the poolside palapa makes dining under the stars a breeze. Wind up your evening

overlooking the ocean and gazing at the millions of stars. If you want hot clubs or discos this is not the place. If you seek total relaxation and rejuvenation book now.

FIVE STARS! 12 days of paradise

  • 5 of 5

FIVE out of five stars- for sure!! My husband and I go to Mexico every year and this is the best place we have stayed. The setting is spectacular with gorgeous views of the ocean and crashing waves, which is only a few steps away! We watched the sunsets (incredible and saw the ‘green flash”) from the veranda, the sofa or sitting on the bed. And, as we were drinking our morning coffee we saw whales going by! A new experience for us! The casita is equipped with everything you want and is decorated with such great taste.

Next- the pool! Clean and so, so refreshing! I swam every single day and it was relaxing and soothing. And lovely setting to just sit and read a book. Very quiet and peaceful!

The ‘swimming’ beach is about 4 miles down the road and we went often as we love to boogie board and body surf and had a blast every time. The ocean is so warm and playful. Melanie had EVERYTHING we could need for the beach, so we didn’t need to rent a thing!

Lastly and most important is Melanie. She made our stay the best, always checking to make sure we were OK and giving us lots of ideas and information on where to go and where to eat! Her knowledge of the area was amazing. Overall, we came in tired and needing a reprieve for our daily lives and left refreshed and rejuvenated! We will return!

Owner's Response: Dear Joey and Bob, Thank you for your sweet words! It was truly my pleasure to have you here! I'm glad you enjoyed the pool, the peace and quiet and our beautiful ocean. I look forward to seeing you both again! Melanie

Amazing stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in dozens of VRBO rentals, and Villa Puesta del Sol and without a doubt one of the best. Aside from the obvious factors- private pool! ocean front!- the casita itself as well as our host Melanie are what makes this place stand out. The casita was extremely clean and had all of the amenities we needed for our stay. The grounds of the villa are immaculate; beautiful flowering plants and cacti and everything is so well maintained. It was so helpful to have Melanie give us tips on the best places to eat as well as set up a fishing trip for us. We didn't do many day trips but a week was not nearly enough to enjoy everything. We had so much fun cooking meals in the fantastic outdoor kitchen that we didn't get to try all of the amazing restaurants that are in the area. Honestly, the outdoor kitchen alone is worth a trip here. We had a truly fantastic week here and I'm so grateful that Melanie shared her villa with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! It was truly my pleasure having you as guests. It was fun getting to know you both and helping you enjoy your stay. And thank you for sharing the fresh fish you caught! I'm glad you were able to relax here and enjoy the palapa kitchen and the pool. I agree -- things taste better when cooked poolside! I look forward to seeing you again!

We have just returned from our second visit to the stunning Villa Puesta del Sol which is situated within its own grounds, beach and beautiful gardens which are serene, tranquil and safe.

However, first and foremost, I want to mention our delightful hostess Melanie, who upon our arrival welcomed us with appetizers and drinks. We then relaxed in our spacious casita which has every amenity you could wish for. We particularly loved the balcony where we sat and enjoyed spectacular sunsets and listened to the waves crashing onto the shore of the long and empty beach. And throughout our stay, I found falling asleep to the rhythm of the ocean a blissful end to a glorious day.

Melanie is wonderful company and a mine of information which she will share to make your stay memorable. Whether you want to wander further afield or just stay and sway on the hammock watching a galaxy of stars or swim in your own private pool whilst enjoying the sunshine, solitude and bird song with a long cool drink, Melanie will make it happen.

The Villa Puesta del Sol is just a short drive to Todos Santos which is a lovely traditional Mexican town with its friendly people, fantastic restaurants, taco stands, shops & galleries. There are also beautiful beaches to explore, not least the Villa's very own!

My husband and I have traveled to this area of the Baja a number of times and I cant praise the superb Villa Puesta del Sol highly enough. We want to return to this slice of paradise again & again.

Owner's Response: Pauline, I am very touched by your words. Having you and Richard here again was MY pleasure! I'm so glad you enjoyed swimming in the pool each day and found so many great places to dine in the area. And I loved sharing stories with you both! I am already looking forward to your next visit!

A truly rewarding discovery

  • 5 of 5

If you've gotten this far - STOP RIGHT NOW AND BOOK THIS SPOT!

You will not find a better location or a more wonderful accomodation than Melanie and Peter's Cassita.

Nor will you find a more accomodating host and hostess. The casita is more inviting and comfortable than the photos show. Add in the pool, the palapa, the barbeque and especially the gorgeous beach make it a package that can not be beat!

From a most welcoming greeting on our arrival, sitting down and enjoying Peter's fresh baked crostini, getting to know and enjoy each other, all while watching an unsurpassed sunset from the oceanfront patio.... You will truly understand Villa Puesta del Sol!

Melanie and Peter were totally unobtrusive during our stay, with only an occasional "call-out" from below, checking to make sure we had everything we needed as they headed into town to go shopping.

Trust me. Book this place! I promise you! You will be as happy as we were!

(OK, go ahead and read the rest of all those positive reviews if you must. But your dates just might be taken by the time you have finished. It really is that special!)

Desert meets Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth straight year because we love the relaxed ambience and stunning views of whales and sunsets over the Pacific Ocean followed by moonrise over the desert mountains to the East, all at a lovely large studio casita with kind and friendly hosts and great dining at nearby Pescadero and Todos Santos. Perfect for a couple. Already booked next year.
