A wonderful family getaway
Our party of five, with two young children (3 & 5) stayed in the large main house for three nights. It was a wonderful place to stay for a family vacation. It is right on a beautiful, isolated beach, but is minutes from town. There were two bedrooms downstairs, and two upstairs, each with its own bathroom. The main house has a pool just steps from the front porch. You can hear the waves crashing as you fall asleep at night. The kitchen is well-equipped, and there is a washer and dryer behind the main house. There is a tennis court on the property as well. Marilyn greeted us warmly and was easily available if we had any questions. There were other parties staying on the property, who we saw only infrequently, but every casita is far enough removed that we never heard anyone. We already planning a return trip with our extended family and couldn't think of a better place for everyone to stay.
A great get- away!
We had a great time at Flora Del Mar!! 7 of us stayed at this out of the way spot (a crazy isolated beach so close to town!) The place lent itself well for a group experience - a great place to gather with friends and family, and privacy when we needed it. We hung out at the pool - a lot! and met new friends! The owner, Marilyn was so nice and helpful. She set us up with surfing lessons at Cerritos beach and a whale shark expedition in La Paz. We rented the entire house this time around and my husband and I have already reserved a week in one of the casitas when we come back without the rest of our family next winter! We can't wait!
Be Warned ...
1. You could be sharing the small pool with lots of other people.
2. You will not get on the tennis court because all the owners friends from the neighborhood will be playing on it all the time.
3. Strangers may walk into your house at any time, so hide your valuables.
4. The owner is constanly poking around and it feels creepy.
5. There is a spa advertised. I do not know what that is. There is no spa. There is a hot tub that is cold.
6. The house and especially the kitchen is not particularly clean.
7. The beach is fantastic.
There seems to have been a misunderstanding as to the accommodations, here at Flora del Mar (FDM). By way of clarification, FDM consists of a main house with 4 bedroom suites, that sleeps 9. In addition, there are two separate "casitas" that sleep a total of 7. Guests have the option of renting the compound in its entirety -as often happens- for family reunions, small, exclusive yoga retreats, receptions, etc. When only the main house is rented, there is a chance, especially during Christmas or New Year's holidays- which is when these reviewers came- that other guests will be staying on the property, as well. It is usually a festive time here at FDM.
Even so, FDM, is on 3 acres, with a 30 acre orchard on it's south side, and the ocean in front, and thus, affords privacy.
Flora del Mar has a beautiful new tennis court, one of the prettiest in the Baja, and the only one in Todos Santos. My guests, always have priority and can reserve times for any and all days, at no charge. There is a sign-in book at the court, and I will reserve times for guests before they arrive if they wish. On Sunday mornings there is a round robin where guests can meet locals who play tennis. It is casual, and usually quite popular. I often have guests at FDM who don't play tennis. When that is the case, locals can sign up and play for a small fee.
I do not advertise a spa. I'm sorry if this reviewer felt I was too "present". I like to make myself available to answer questions to insure that my guests have the best possible experience. I'm sorry if these people were negatively affected by that.
Flora del Mar offers a safe, friendly, casual and tranquil environment for all my guests
Loved Flora Del Mar
This review is a little late, but better late than never! First of all, Marilyn was great hostess! We arrived late at night due flight delays. We were greeted warmly, immediately felt welcomed and she made us margaritas. FDR is not a resort, but a great B&B. We found it beautiful, clean, comfortable, and great place to relax. There's a nice pool and hot tub. The beach was amazing. You can walk for miles a barely see anyone. Other guests were there, but it was not over crowded by any means. Marilyn was low key, had great suggestions on where to eat, etc... Also, nice to chat with. Great location to explore! Will definitely make back again, and hopefully for more than a week!
We spent 4 nights in the casita with balcony while exploring & enjoying Todos Santos . Beach is a short walk, sunsets from the casita were gorgous. Accommodations were great and Marilyn was most helpful with many suggestions of where to eat (sushi ran was terrific) enjoy a sunset or whatever we thinking about. Hope to return.
While Flora del Mar is by a quiet beach, away from the hustle bustle of town, it is only 2 miles to the center for shopping and great restaurants.
