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 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.

It was comfortable, clean, and kid friendly
There was 5 adults, one 8 year old, and 2 toddlers. We all had our own space, it was clean and very comfortable. The outside space was really nice it had nice shade and there was plenty of space to lay out in the sun. I would defiantly stay here again on our next trip!
What a great property. It's spacious; the layout is great; it's comfortable. The kitchen is very well-stocked (plates & glasses, pots & pans, blender, toaster, cooking utensils, etc.). The grounds are lovely; we LOVED the palapa -- a highlight. It's a quiet neighborhood (except for the dogs next door, that seem to like to go out at around 3-4 am and argue loudly). The beds are comfortable; rooms are spacious and clean. The beach down the path is wide and empty.
The house is a solid 2+ miles away from the town on a rutted bumpy dirt road.
Beautiful, comfortable vacation home
Beautiful place to stay, close to the beach. The pool was perfect for kids and fruit trees and grounds, lovely. Well equipped and extremely well managed. We loved our stay and highly recommend this place for families or other groups looking for a great home base.
Beautiful home right by the beach
My family and I loved our stay here. The home is beautiful and well decorated and we loved the ability to use the kitchen to feed the family. The pool is great and the garden is beautiful. The home is just a
One minute walk to a beautiful beach and the town of Todos Santos is a short drive away. I loved this beach and town and Home and would very much recommend it! A home away from home
Very comfortable and relaxing location!
I highly recommend this house. It is a short drive from town - maybe 5 minutes given the bumpy road - but the immediate area has plenty to offer. It's in a quiet neighborhood. A short walk landed us at the beach where we watched whales every day. The pool and outdoor living area were so incredibly relaxing - and easy living for a family trip with kids. We really enjoyed our stay!
Awesome house for two families!
We spent a week at this amazing rental and would love to return someday! The house was perfect for our two families (kids ages 6-10). There was plenty of room and the covered patio was perfect for meals, hanging out, etc while the kids played in the pool. It's only a short walk to the beach, where we saw very few people, but happened upon baby turtles making their way to the sea several nights in a row...pure magic! There were whales several times just beyond the surf and we loved having access to such a quiet, wild beach right by the house. Like the other reviews say, the beach is definitely not safe for swimming for kids, but that was fine because we drove to other nearby beaches for safer surf to play in. The house is only a few minutes drive from Todos Santos and is in a great location. It felt very secure and the neighborhood felt safe. It was quiet most nights (there was some loud music from neighboring properties but it wasn't too bad.) The fully equipped kitchen was awesome for cooking big family meals, along with the full-sized propane BBQ grill and wood-fired oven. We made wood-fired pizzas one night and they were amazing! We would definitely recommend this place and would stay again. The only negative (not even about the property!) was that the very friendly neighbor dog, Lobo, followed us down the beach which was fun at first, until he started eating baby turtles :( This made our whole group very sad. Otherwise, we had a dreamy vacation and hope to return!
