Property type cottage


About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Relax in this secluded casita, decorated in Mexican style for the enjoyment of the discerning traveler. The deck is a perfect spot for coffee or cocktail with it's view of the palms, the golden light of sunset, and the call of birds (watch for i owls!) The casita is fully furnished, has wi-fi, complete water filters making all the water potable, and has parking for your rental car. Our location is at the edge of town, allowing easy access to the many local festival events as well as exquisite restaurants, shopping and art galleries, and is also 10-15 minute walking distance from the beach. The swimming beach of Los Cerritos is a 15 minute drive south offering great surfing. The casita is located above the owner's art studio where drawing and painting classes are offered on Thursday mornings and painting is always in progress. The main house and the casita are situated on one acre of land, and are completely fenced and gated providing security and comfort.

Activities are always happening in Todos Santos and 2016 proves to be an exciting season. The music festival headlining Peter Buck of REM is scheduled for january (scheduled the 14 - 23 -- sign on the Todos Santos Music Festival Website to view performers and purchase tickets) The artists studio tour will be February 6th and 7th where you can visit local artists studios and purchase treasures, the latin film festival at the end of february featuring major films from Latin American countries, and the gastro vino festival in April. It seems like something fun is always happening in this town and you are invited to contact me for dates and information.

About Tori Sepulveda

Oscar and Tori selected Todos Santos as their home in Mexico after years of researching tropical paradises. After retiring from teaching high school art and Oscar from the business world, the two are following their dreams of painting and golfing and surfing in Baja

Tori Sepulveda purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Tori Sepulveda chose Mexico

this location is outstanding for its privacy while still being close to town and to the beach. We are located at the edge of town so it is easy walking or quick driving distance to access all that Todos Santos has to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

Whether for the artist, the sports enthusiast or the person who wants the connection with town, this property is located to take full advantage of the things Todos Santos has to offer. Hiking, surfing, fishing, bicycling, photography, bird watching, painting, or just relaxing on the property, can all be enjoyed close by. I love to sit on the patio of the guest casita, looking out over the palm orchard, watching the sunset and the bird life. It is so comfortable and tranquil here.

  • 5 of 5

Tori and Oscar are genuinely amazing people! They treated us like family from the moment we arrived to warm hugs that they offered to us when we departed. They are both great hosts with so much knowledge to offer from just about everything from food, shopping, beaches, excursions, art, the surrounding area, and even about life in general.

Their property in Todos Santos is absolutely beautiful! Tori and Oscar's attention to detail is by far the best that we have experienced from any VRBO host to date. You notice these details from the moment you pull in through their gates. The architecture, construction, craftsmanship, landscaping, amenities, and cleanliness are pretty extraordinary. We felt right at home immediately! The bed and bedroom are very cozy, we were able to unwind and sleep in every day during our stay. We also enjoyed the balcony each morning that overlooks the beautiful palm orchard.

Another wonderful perk of staying with Tori and Oscar are their two loving dogs—Chico and Dante! These boys greeted and showered us with love that we were missing from our dog back at home. They were both very respectful and well trained, these know how to wait until you give them permission to return the love.

Tori and Oscar are truly inspirational and amazing, we hope to follow in their footsteps someday! We will definitely be back!

Beautiful piece of property perfectly located in Todos Santos.

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location in Todos Santos, immaculately maintained property that is gated, perfect upstairs casita with everything you need to enjoy your stay as if you are living at home. The casita was very clean and has plenty of cross ventilation making it ideal and very comfortable even with hot sun and temperatures in the 80's. We spent every evening sitting on the balcony enjoying the Pacific breeze and the view. Chico and Dante are very well mannered dogs and we enjoyed their company each time they visited. Tori and Oscar are wonderful hosts and the nicest couple you will meet. In all of the places we have stayed in our travels this rental is by far the best in what we were looking for. See you next year.

Great location, amazing pool, lovely yard and views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying with Tori, Oscar, Dante and Chico! The heated pool is wonderful! Tori and Oscar were very nice and accommodating! We feel lucky to have met them! They were happy to provide helpful information and show you the maps. Tori even brought us a delicious smoothie our first morning and gave us a papaya! Dante and Chico, the furry canine hosts are also delightful! The upstairs Casita is very nice and comfortable. Sunsets from the veranda overlooking the pool and gardens are beautiful! It was so nice to have filtered water throughout and good hot showers inside and at the pool! The casita is in a good location, easy to find and easy to walk to town. Thanks! We'll be back!

We couldn't have asked for a better experience in Todos Santos - comfortable place to stay, beautiful setting, ideal location, & the warmest + kindest hosts you could imagine. Do not pass up the chance to stay here!

Casita is perfect for two people - very comfortable and clean, with authentic touches. Kitchen is equipped with an excellent gas stove & fresh water to cook meals, shower is piping hot with great water pressure, bed is oh so comfortable, temperature is perfect with the windows open & a light breeze flowing in.

Words nor photos will do justice to the beauty of the grounds. Tori & Oscar have created a peaceful oasis that is pure bliss. We were perfectly content to spend some days just lounging about the gardens, balcony, and poolside.

The location can't be beat. 10 minute walk into town or beach, 5 minute or less drive, 15 minute drive to our most favorite beach, Playa Las Palmas.

And the hosts...what can I say? This was the type of trip I have always dreamed of: you go to another country and make friends who impact your life & you will cherish forever; that was our experience with Tori & Oscar. Two of the most caring, genuine, and relaxed people we have met. They are an inspiration, and have much to share on Todos Santos, Baja, and life in general : )

I would be remiss if I didn't mention the pups...the cherry on top of the trip was the loving affection & attention we received from oh so well behaved Dante & Chico. If you have pets at home, these guys will keep your heart filled in their absence...and if you don't have pets, they will make you want to adopt <3

We will be back for certain!

A warm welcome in Todos Santos!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we were greeted by Tori, Chico and Dante we knew we were in for an exceptional stay. After showing us where everything was, we went to see whales and the sunset just outside of town. Coming back to the Casita was so comfortable, the lighting was great, the Mexican tile work so beautiful, the bed was comfy, and the recommendations of where to go and what to see were spot on. Thanks so much Tori and Oscar (sorry we missed you) for making your home open to us and your other guests. It was lovely of you to share your love of your community with us, if only for a few days.
