Caroline could not have been more attentive. The apartment is incredibly clean. The beach is divine! Highly recommended.

We loved this private apartment. So spacious. The kitchen had everything we needed. The grocery store is nearby. Loved sitting out on the patio, being able to hear the ocean. Very nice bathroom. The owners are so kind – a lovely family with cute little boys! Carlos is a native of Todos Santos, Caroline is an American who has lived there for many years. So you get the best of both worlds. A nice walk to the very private and beautiful beach where you can see whales and just watch the beautiful sea. Gorgeous sunsets just about every night. Will definitely return!

We had our own bit of paradise for a week. We came down for a wedding and family fun. This apartment was perfect for us. A lovely home away from home. Caroline and Carlos are the perfect hosts. We had everything we needed. We liked having a kitchen to do some cooking. Carlos’s brother runs a fishing boat which the guys had great fun on. There were beaches, hikes, beautiful sunsets. Watching Caroline and Carlos’s four boys play was a delight. Whatever you need they will help you with. Caroline even helped us find some of our family when we arrived. We slept great. We loved this place. We liked being in a neighborhood rather than a resort. Do yourself a favor and stay here, you won’t be sorry.

The photos don’t do this cute place justice. First, it is big. The two of us had plenty of space and includes a great balcony that is quite large as well. It is quite comfortable with lots of beautiful light.

We truly enjoyed the sounds of her family drifting up to the apartment; this location is best for folks who appreciate dropping into life here, including kid sounds, dog barking, and horse hooves tromping by 🙂 The apartment sits in a quiet neighborhood within a 15-minute walk to a quiet, lovely beach. On our last night, we noticed how many people in the neighborhood walked to the beach for sunset before returning home.

Hospitality

We live on site, so if you need assistance we are always in and out and able to lend a hand.  We will do our best to make your stay more awesome!

Our four little boys are often home. They are not always quiet, but they are usually adorable. You can expect quiet at bedtime from 8 pm to 7 am.


Your Vacation could be like this:

My husband and I spent a month renting from Caroline and her family, and we couldn’t have been happier with our experience.

Let’s break it down: Apartment- So beautiful. Caroline’s husband, Carlos, built it himself. We loved the open floor plan- everything was cool and breezy with the windows open. We cooked a lot while there and found the kitchen to have everything we needed. The bathroom was also incredibly well designed. In past apartments we’ve rented in Baja, bathrooms were tightly enclosed spaces, so they were quick to become muggy and smelly. Not Caroline’s. Great ventilation and gorgeous walk-in shower. Lots of sink counter space as well. As for the bedroom, we couldn’t have been more comfortable. Great queen bed and a very well positioned fan overhead. We slept very well there.

Location- Such a great spot! Most mornings my husband and I began with a quick run to the beach. Del Mango is a direct dirt road that will take you there, winding its way through beautiful properties and producing mango trees. Keep in mind that this is not a cabanas-on-the-beach kind of place. If that’s what you’re going for, Cabo is a better bet. But if you get excited about long stretches of beach with no crowds and a rugged surf break, you’ll be impressed.

As for amenities, Caroline’s is within walking distance to a grocery store (though there are hills, so driving is more comfortable), a laundromat, and some solid food options. And my husband loved using the family’s bikes!

Living With The Family- The apartment was beautiful, the location was convenient, but most of all we felt really lucky to stay with Caroline’s family. When deciding where to rent, we were debating between an entire home we’d have to ourselves, or Caroline’s place. Staying with a family had so many perks- Caroline helped us get some traction in the community. She was there to answer any and all questions, and helped us navigate tricky situations. When Hurricane Newton was headed towards Baja Sur, it was Caroline who sent us the text message letting us know it was coming. (We were exploring Cabo at the time, but quickly headed back to TS.) She and Carlos helped us ride out the storm (which in the end, didn’t cause any significant damage.) I couldn’t imagine having felt so safe and cared for had we been renting out our own house.

Long story short- great people, great apartment, great location, great deal. Whether you stay for a weekend or a month, we bet you’ll be very happy here.
