Todos Santos - Ocean View Villa inside 'CalyCanto Casitas'

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-12)

This listing (and it's pricing) is for the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa 'Casita del Pescado' located inside CalyCanto Casitas—a boutique compound of only three Villas. (If you are interested in renting all three villas to accommodate 12 people please contact us for pricing.) This two bedroom two bathroom house sleeps 4 (or 6 if you use the pull-out couch). Our spacious yet intimate setting on five gently sloping acres of desert terrain is just 700 yards above the Pacific Ocean. The property is 2.5 miles from the town of Todos Santos, offering magnificent ocean views and generous terraces. This villa is tasteful in every detail and appointed with modern amenities, it is spacious and fully furnished.

Embodying the architectural heritage of Mexico, rustic design seamlessly blends with modern conveniences to stimulate the senses. Expansive and richly appointed, the casita offers an indoor-outdoor flow, with colorfully painted designs and finishes, decorative wrought-iron, and antique mesquite furniture painstakingly handcrafted by Mexican artisans.

Walk barefoot on Saltillo floors. Enjoy breakfast on colorfully hand painted Talavera tiles. Siesta in a hand-woven hammock for two as gentle shadows from the Palapa roof drift across the room and the ocean breeze blows gently across the terrace. Take an indoor/outdoor shower while watching the silhouette of Royal Palms and native catcti dot the sunset.

These lavish accommodations offer the perfect rooftop vantage point to contemplate the moon’s reflection on the deep blue waters of the Pacific. From the master bedroom or your private terrace, gaze upon a pristine, white sand beach, or simply enjoy a refreshing siesta in one of the shaded hammocks under a Palapa. Or, if you prefer, enjoy a moonlit dinner on your private terrace before you sneak inside to the comfort of 500 thread count sheets.

While some guests choose to never leave the premises, others prefer to participate in limitless adventure and exploration. Look out your window to watch the annual migration of the Humpback and Gray Whales or check the surf. Witness pottery being made first hand, with the same process used for centuries in the nearby Sierra de la Laguna mountain range. Take a Yoga or a Spanish class in the timeless town center. Savor some of the best restaurants in Baja. Relax in your own sensuously elegant and comfortably spacious private palapa.

CalyCanto Casitas are not about high-speed internet or cable television (although modern conveniences are available). What we offer is an escape to simplicity, a path to tranquility, a destination where time stands still. Where you can be lulled to rest by the rhythm of waves in the distance or simply lean back and look toward the heavens to gaze at the shimmering stars. Where you can share and build memories. Where you can find yourself.

About The Owner

Passionate about sustainable tourism, Baja, travel, surfing, sailing, diving, creativity and passion. Lover of Todos Santos.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Todos Santos

Todos Santos is one of the last special places on earth. It is not Cabo San Lucas. No time-shares, no strip clubs, no jet skis, no beach vendors, and no traffic. Just a relaxed style of living that is very hard to find in the hectic 21st century. Underneath the town’s sleepy exterior there exists a vibrant microcosm of many activities you might find in any city. Todos Santos has always been considered a special place, as reflected by its live theater, art galleries, centers for workshops and seminars, and historical homes. Todos Santos boasts Internet cafes, access to wireless networks, DSL and satellite connections. But, primarily, it is a place for people to find peace and to pursue individual self-expression.

What makes this house unique

In addition to the unique architecture and meticulous attention to design, the property was developed by people that care about the community of Todos Santos and preserving the special values that it fosters. There's an advanced water treatment facility that allows us to use grey water for irrigation for the indigenous vegetation.

Great stay at Calycanto Casitas

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Calycanto Casitas, the location was wonderful and the property was fabulous. Laurie the property manager welcomed us and gave us great recommendations for places to eat. The upstairs balcony was an enjoyable way to spend evening with drinks/snacks; the view of the water was spectacular. Would reserve again when we're in Todos Santos.

The best!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three wonderful weeks here this winter. Calycanto is a fabulous property a short walk from the beach and a short ride from town. Laurie, the property manager, welcomed us with open arms and was attentive to our every need although there was little to need as our casita was magical. The outdoor shower in the master is to die for. We spent many nights on the second floor "drinking porch" watching the sun go down. We would highly recommend. Tons of Gringos in Todos Santos area so Spanish fluency is unnecessary. Great Resturants abound. A must go.

Felt like home for a week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casita Tortuga - which has a master bedroom upstairs with a queen bed and AMAZING outdoor shower. Second bedroom downstairs has 2 twin beds. The house is beautiful and comfortable. We really loved the indoor/outdoor feel of it. Located just a short (5 ish minute) drive north of Todos Santos. It is even a shorter drive to the sweet surf spot, La Pastora. 5 minute walk to the beach. The beach is beautiful, but it is not recommended as a swimming beach because of currents. About a 15 minute drive to the swim and beginner surf spot, Los Cerritos. Kathy, the caretaker, is very kind and informative. Kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, blender, etc. There are several grocery stores nearby. The upper deck was great for reading in the hammock or a morning yoga sesh. The ground floor wrap around patio had a nice big dining table and a couple of really comfortable lounge chairs. WiFi was great. TV with a few English speaking stations. It was really nice to show up and they had stocked the house with 2 large bottles of drinking water. The surrounding area was really quiet - we rarely saw or heard anyone. The weather/temperature was perfect. It was hot a few days, but mostly warm (80s) with a little wind here and there to cool things off. Cool at night - enough for a hoodie. Only turned on AC one of the warmer nights but had to turn off in the middle of the night as it cooled off.

Todos Santos Villa Calycanto Casitas

  • 5 of 5

Rave reviews for this incredible rental property! Beautiful and well maintained villa 5 minutes by car from DT Todos Santos and a 5 minute walk to the beach where you can walk for hours. Five women on a girls get-a-way enjoyed a week of watching stunning sunsets over the ocean from the upstairs deck, eating at incredible restaurants, shopping at local markets and preparing our own meals and visiting local attractions in the area. The property is every bit as beautiful as pictured. We especially appreciated the flexibility and helpfulness of both the owner and the property manager. Would love to return with the family!

Everything claimed it would be....and more!

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent visitors to Todos Santos but this was our first stay at Calycanto Casitas. Dealing with Jim (the owner) via telephone and e-mail to make arrangements was very positive. He was helpful and made the process very easy. The property itself was above and beyond the description. A pleasant surprise to find an outdoor private shower off the upstairs master suite where we stayed. Enjoyed daily private outdoor hot showers watching the whales go buy. Nice way to start a morning! House is fully furnished and very comfortable with three outdoor areas to relax. Two furnished patios downstairs and one up (with hammock and table/chairs). The property is nicely landscaped and the house fully stocked with items needed to prepare and enjoy meals you might want to prepare at home. Breakfast bar for meals and cocktails. Full dining table on the front patio. Big comfy lounge couch for evening reading, etc. Beautifully appointed architectural touches throughout the home. Conveniently located to town, restaurants, groceries and all Mexican or Gringo needs. Wifi worked very well. No report on satellite TV and I-pod playback system as we didn't use. No hesitation considering this property when we return next year. Keep this one on your very short list!
