About the property

Casa Palma Grande: 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms.

Casa Palma Grande is an open concept living oasis. There are two separate bedrooms with bathrooms that can comfortably sleep a family or two couples. The rooms are always rented together so you experience privacy in the middle of the city.

Between the bedrooms, there is an open kitchen situated beneath a beautiful rustic palapa roof with plenty of space to entertain in the oversized dining area. The property is surrounded by a privacy wall that encases a beautiful yard filled with local vegetation and fruit trees.

We built our home slowly over many years adding special touches to make an authentic Mexican oasis.

About Veronica & Shannon Howard

Veronica was born and raised in Todos Santos before moving to Washington state in 2004.

Veronica & Shannon Howard purchased this house in 2008

Why Veronica & Shannon Howard chose Todos Santos

This property was passed down to Veronica through many generations. Her grandfather gifted the property to Veronica and her husband as a wedding gift so they could build a home to visit often.

What makes this house unique

We built this home together to create a home away from home when visiting our family in Mexico. We have added homey touches to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome.

Oasis in the middle of town

  • 4 of 5

This place is exactly as described and pictured. It is not right for everyone but for those who have the spirit of adventure it’s a nice location. If you are considering this place keep in mind that you will hear some barking dogs at night or maybe a rooster or two on the early hours. But the location is great and is walking distance to most things in Todos Santos. The space itself is quite large and you can easily spread out and enjoy yourself. There are several steps up-and-down in different locations and so this place is not appropriate for somebody with mobility issues. Shannon and Veronica were easy to deal with. I recommend this place for anyone looking for something out of the ordinary.

Lovely home but ...

  • 3 of 5

Don't stay here in the summer months - way too hot without airconditioning! Be warned its a little bit like indoor camping. Although the bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely clean and comfortable - the outdoor open plan living whilst cooler during the heat of the day you couldn't relax in the evening unless you're happy to be feasted on by mosquitoes!

Hot water took forever to come through and only lasted 2 minutes - which was ok on the hot days but sometimes a warm shower is welcome.

There wasn't a water dispenser of any sort - you had to tip over the huge bottle which was a pretty dodgy way of getting a drink of water! A jug would have been nice so you could fill it and put it in the fridge for a freshing cold drink of water. Or to fill ice trays!

Overall I was disappointed with our stay and would find it hard to recommend.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay! We have worked hard on our home to try to accommodate the variety of guests that stay here! One thing we are very adamant about is good communication with the guests before and during their stay! We always try to remind everyone to bring sunscreen and bug spray! Not having a hot shower is a huge bummer if you would have contacted us and let us know we would have gotten someone over there to fix this ASAP! And it sounds like there was a couple of little things that you could have let us know we're missing and we could've gotten them over there immediately and your stay could have been way better! It is pretty clear on the listing that we have an open air living and kitchen area which makes it pretty special for our family and the other guests that have stayed there! Also the listing is clear that we do not have AC it sounds like it was pretty hot when you were there! Again we are very sorry our place did not meet your needs we wish you the very best on your next trip!

Want an amazing place?

  • 5 of 5

We walked in and said to one another, "Wow, we didn't realize it was going to be this great." We left a week later muttering, "Oh, how I wish we were staying."

We took pictures of the property to send to our friends. We spent every day until noon lounging and reading - because it was as good as going to the beach. We walked to great restaurants, hot dogs, views, neighborhoods, and the grocery store. The Mom who lives there was kind and helpful. The neighbors sweet. The beds soft and cool. And the overall experience a kind of informal luxury that's hard to beat. Yes, we'd go back.

Great stay all around

  • 5 of 5

We were there late Feb/early Mar 2017. The place was fantastic in every way. Great location, amazing outdoor kitchen and living area. Clean, spacious, and comfortable rooms. The kitchen has everything you would ever need. The one thing that would put it over the top is if there were some plastic plates, bowls, and cups for kids! We would absolutely stay there next time in Todos Santos.
