Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home With Guest Suite, Private Pool, Yard, and Ocean Views

Vista Ballena is located in a quiet, highly desirable neighborhood of Todos Santos. Fall asleep each night to the sound of surf and awake each morning to singing birds and the fresh smell of the Pacific ocean. Grab your coffee and walk 300 yards down a sandy trail out to the beach to look for migrating grey whales.

With a large great room, fully equipped kitchen, and spacious bedrooms, our home provides a comfortable place to relax. But, more than likely, you'll find yourself spending the majority of your time in the spacious palapa patio and heated pool - an ideal place to unwind and cool off from your day's adventures.

In addition to the main house, there is a separate large guest suite located just steps from the palapa patio, above the garage. Adjoining the guest suite is an upper deck that features spectacular ocean views with whale watching opportunities by day and star gazing by night.

Our fully fenced and private yard is filled with lush tropical foliage and numerous fruit trees including Mexican lime, mango, avocado, and apple.

Todos Santos Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, well thought out home-everything you need. Beach is a stone's throw away. Quiet neighborhood-except for dogs next door-who serve as a warning system and greeters. You will need a car. Management is helpful and supportive. Perfect for a couple or extended family vacation. No complaints, we will be back!

All we could have asked for...

  • 5 of 5

We were beyond thrilled to have stumbled onto Vista Balleña, the pictures didn't quite do it justice. The house and adjoining master suite could easily have accommodated two families so there was ample space for our family of four. Regretfully we only stayed 3 nights and did not get to fully appreciate all the amenities (outdoor grill and pizza oven) but did enjoy the pool and were happy to find coolers, umbrellas, towels, beach chairs to bring to Los Cerritos beach a 20 minute drive away (rent surf, boogie boards, wetsuits from Mari, she's always there with her dogs). We were grateful for the advice and guidance of Amy, the manager, who answered all our questions and researched where to watch the turtle hatchling release from the beach nearby (www.todostortugueros.org for more details). We are already planning our next trip, can't wait to stay at Vista Balleña again.

Incredible. Again.

  • 5 of 5

Our whole group (2 families, young children) absolutely adored Vista Ballena. Could not have been better. Kitchen is well appointed. The grounds are gorgeous and well-kept. The pool is fun for everyone. Short walk to the beach, what else could you ask for? This was our second trip to this house, and certainly will not be the last.

Great location and rental for a family or several couples

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for March of 2017. The home's location in the San Sebastian neighborhood of Todos Santos was great for us. The roads getting to the home once you are off the paved main road are quite rough so a vehicle that has higher clearance would be a good choice.

The outdoor living area and pool area were the places we spent most of our time. The beach chairs were great for our sunsets at the beach and the umbrellas are very sturdy ones. The grounds and pool were always immaculate. Any issues we had were quickly handled by the property manager, Amy and her team of very trustworthy workers. We always felt safe there with the privacy heavy gate.

The owners were very easy to work with. Thanks, Sarah, for the new blender and knives additions to the kitchen! There is no cable or satellite TV but there is a DVD player and a limited selection of older DVDs, mostly for children. Good wifi. We stayed in the guest room above the garage. The king bed there has a mattress topper which was softer than we are used to but adequate. We did not have any guests sleep in the queen bedroom off the living room because there are no windows for fresh air flow. Of the other main house bedrooms, one has a king bed and the other has a set of twins.

Favorite restaurants were La Esquina and De Tea and waffle house ( 20-minute walk) for breakfast or lunches and Cuatro Ventios for yoga and zumba classes. In town for lunch, we loved Bahia, Alma & Manny's, Derek's sushi, or Miguel's. For dinners, we enjoyed La Copa, Hierbabuena, Chez Laura's, Michael's, Landi's, El Zaguan and La Casita. Many other great places too- just can't list them all! For unique & custom-made jewelry in the best silver, shop at any of the 3 Brilanti family shops - you won't be disappointed! The fruit/vegetable stands located on the way into town are wonderful - great selections and very inexpensive.

All-in-all, this year's stay was the best of our 5 times in Todos Santos. The beach walks, waves, sunsets, turtle releases, weather and this great home made it extra special! Thanks to Sarah and Scott for making their place available to us!

We loved this place ! Plenty of room and all amenities. Spent most of our time under the palapa outside. loved the landscaping and abundant fruit trees on the property (just add rum). Close to beach and close to town. we'll be back.

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our two families had a lovely stay at Vista Ballena. Our little ones had so much fun playing in the pool and sandbox. We would definitely come back!
