Property description

Winter Rates $80/nt or $525/wk (which includes the 16% local IVA tax). A bargain for such a great location this close to the beach - just a few hundred yards away! Great views (no exaggeration) of the spectacular peaks of the Sierra Laguna Mountains and the wide, open Pacific. Located in an undeveloped area just north of Todos, it provides the seclusion of nature just 10 minutes from all the activities downtown. Summer, fall and spring special rates ranging from $35 to 70/night. Plus, it's green: solar for electricity and sink and shower water goes out to the garden - and we are committed to growing native, protected and water conserving species at our place.

The perfect base for your outdoors excursions and relaxing vacation. A beach cabana studio with clear views and few neighbors, your private bungalow. Located on 2+ acres and adjacent to 80 undeveloped acres of cactus, behind a locked gate for security, privacy and NO road dust to breath. Close to historic Todos Santos with all the amenities you need. Full water pressure with plenty of hot water for your showers, that also water the desert garden. No roosters crowing at dawn to keep you awake! See our web site for more photos: www 'dot' sites 'dot' google 'dot' com/site/todoscasadeluna/

Casita de Luna is all about privacy and relaxation, a nature-oriented get-away. You'll go to sleep to the sound of waves crashing and wake to doves cooing. You love strolling along the white sandy beach, watching the whales breaching right off shore. If you prefer birding, watch osprey perched in the old-growth cactus or our resident baby quail and road-runners skittering across the road. The star gazing will take your breath away (it does mine). Peace and tranquility - come down to sit on the porch and melt your worries away.

It is a large studio with wide windows facing incredible views to the east, south and west to the ocean. Furnished with:
* King bed (or 2 singles pushed together) - comfy
* Sofa/futon bed (double) - less comfy but our kids like it
* Kitchen table & chairs
* New stove
* New fridge
* Full complement of cooking/eating utensils - cook to your hearts content if you want
* Linens and towels, including beach towels
* Plenty of hot water in walk-in shower!
* Chairs and recliner available for lounging on the porch or terraza and a hammock on the beach side in the shade.
* Daily afternoon breeze through ocean-side French doors to cool you or 2 ceiling fans.
* Stairs to terraza provide a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean and Sierra Laguna mountains, or just sit on the corner of the front porch and soak it all in. Great spots for sunset and star gazing after a day on the beach.
* Currently, no wifi, but we just go down the road to La Esquina for breakfast or beer and free wifi (will consider installation on request), or buy an international data package for our smart phone for a month (cell phone coverage is good).

Surfing, swimming, fishing, shopping, snorkeling, beach combing, hiking, biking, horseback riding, great dining are all available in the area. Todos Santos is an ecclectic mix of artists, musicians, surfers, organic farmers, fishermen and rave-reviewed chefs that you'll want to try! Classes in yoga, Tai Chi, cooking, art, surfing and kayaking available. This interesting cultural blend provides a variety of interesting galleries, restaurants and eco-experiences to choose from. One of our favorites is helping release baby sea turtles back to the ocean, just up the beach from our casita. Contact us for an affordable vacation spot and info on the local attractions.

The local 16% IVA Tax is included. Alternative many renters have used is to send me a check for reservation deposit, and save you the extra service fee cost!

Car: Recommended

We are located 10 minutes outside Todos Santos, about 45 minutes north of busy Cabo San Lucas, in the state of Baja California Sur. It is a scenic area with spectacular views every where you turn: historic mining town, waterfall, 7000 foot peaks in the Sierra Laguna mountains, pristine beaches, desert oasis with palm trees, expansive cardon cactus forests, cliffs along desert arroyos, a lagoon with plentiful and diverse bird populations. A festival of natural wonders.

Whale watching, baby sea turtle releasing, beach combing, kayaking, snorkeling, hiking, back packing, bird watching, horseback riding, star gazing, you name it, our area has it. Including shopping at boutiques and art galleries in Todos Santos - with complete range of restaurants from taco stands to international cuisine, and historic sight-seeing opportunities. Tour through town to see the dozen statuettes of the Todos Santos or All Saints. Many beaches you will have all to yourself. I'll help you with local information for your specifics needs - just ask!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We have always wanted to retire in Mexico some day. We found the property and wonderful community of Todos Santos, purchased in 2004, then built our casita in 2011 with a lot of patience and love. Our plan is to eventually spend most of our time down there, in paradise! We adore the Mexican culture, the Spanish language and the outdoors. Being an ecologist and science teacher, we spend most of our time outdoors in Todos Santos, even if it's just swinging in the hammock and reading. Our girls enjoy it also and have helped with many baby sea turtle releases and egg recovery.

Why the Owner Chose Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
Situated in a desert oasis, the area provides great ecological diversity in wildlife and plant life. We wanted to be close to the ocean, yet near social activities and some culture. Todos Santos provides the perfect combination of both, the best of both worlds.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Situated near the desert oasis of Todos Santos, Casita de Luna has privacy, off-road parking, NO dust and is gated for your protection and greater sense of security. None of those puny views where you can only see it from one corner of the house! A nice porch facing the ocean and wrapping around to face the 7000 ft Sierra Laguna mountains, and a rooftop terraza with 360 degree views provide optimum space for dinning outside or having sunset drinks. Hammock, recliner, chairs and table available for your extensive hours outdoors chilling. The house is open and airy, with French doors that open onto the porch and allow refreshing breezes to flow through the house. You can even watch whales breaching in the Pacific while washing dishes! The walk-in shower has plenty of hot water and pressurized for a full flow. Bordering 80+ acres of undeveloped, cactus forest provides one of the best natural settings around Todos. Wildlife abounds, including grey foxes that have denned nearby and osprey that catch their fish and perch in nearby cardon cactus to feast. We have Not to mention the whale migration and turtle nesting! Mountain biking and horseback riding right in the neighborhood. Todos Santos is a small, friendly community that will engage all your senses and interests, in a relaxed setting! There is an interesting blend of international (US, Canadian, Italian, French) and Mexican cultures here that has produced an eclectic art, entertainment and food scene in town. Some other products of this cultural cross-pollination are the Todos Santos music festival, headed by REM musician Peter Buck with both Latin and rock music (in mid to late January), the Festival del Cine/Movie Festival (in March), the gastronomical festival (in spring), and a Mango festival (in summer), as well as many festive Mexican holidays. Casita de Luna is the perfect home base for your day trips into the Sierra Laguna mountains, the old mining town of El Triunfo, La Paz and even busy Cabo San Lucas.
