Perfect taste of Mexico

We live on Vancouver Island on the South West coast of Canada. going to the SouthWest tip of the Baja is no easy task.. but well worth it if you're staying here with Caroline , Carlos and the boys.
The upper portion of the house was clean and had everything you needed. The tall ceilings added to the bright and airy feeling, and the bathroom was awesome! If you need something else.. Caroline was right there with ready assistance or local information. If you're sitting on the deck in the shade of the tree you can hear the waves that are only a 10 min walk away down a scenic little road lined with trees ( some were mango). With the multitude of little grocery stores to choose from you're never at a loss for your next meal. Todos Santos is a charming town filled with shops and galleries, even a used book store to pick up something to read for a good price.. A lot of the shop proprietors speak English as well as being quite friendly.

loved the birds, loved the apartment

Our two night stay was just great. It's a sunny, spacious breezy apartment, and the birds are amazing in the morning. Caroline was friendly and the service excellent, we were directed to her favourite tacos. Follow the road further out of town and turn left to experience a beautiful deserted beach, awesome Pacific waves, and a stunning sunset. Thanks Caroline, sorry for any sand we left behind!

Comfortable, close to the beach, clean

This place was great, super comfortable, nice and there are mangos and bugambilias everywhere. Walking distance from the beach. Not a great beach if you are not a surfer, tho, seems pretty wild and dangerous for a regular swimmer but good enough for watching a beautiful sunset. Caroline was great, the apartment was clean, a perfect spot to chill after exploring the town. I would strongly recommend to rent a car cause is a bit far away from Todo Santos downtown :)

Recommend!

We had a wonderful stay at Caroline and Carlos' house. The place is neat and well furnished - in a quaint setting. Just 10 mins walk to a lovely beach and 20 mins to the turtle release site. We had some car trouble and Carlos and Caroline helped us get it fixed. We would recommend this place without any reservations.

wonderful!

Our stay included my husband and myself as well as our teenager. The 1 BR apartment worked well for us. We would lounge on the deck in the am with coffee and breads from the panaderia in town before heading out to a new beach or a day trip to La Paz. Cooking was limited to simple dishes on the 2-burner gas cooktop. An initial supply of drinking water was appreciated and replacement jugs are easily secured at a nearby grocer. The spacious bathroom does not have a door, but rather an L-shape that allows for visual privacy. Our teenager wasn't so keen on that design but we all survived. Caroline was super easy to communicate with through the entire booking process and throughout our stay. We appreciated staying with a bilingual host as our Spanish is not very strong. 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. Loud music on New Year's Eve at a neighbor's place was the talk of the neighborhood after the holiday--apparently it's super rare and our hosts did all they could to try to address the problem. In the end, we chalked it up to the kind of cultural hiccup that makes traveling interesting! Finally, we appreciated that Caroline made a few bikes available. Almost every day, my husband rode alongside our teenager as she fit in a 45-60 minute run from the apartment on mostly quiet roads. She appreciated being able to maintain her training schedule & we appreciated this way of helping her feel safe in new surroundings.

Will be back!

Caroline's place is even better than the pictures. It is beautiful and spacious with a warm, open feel. We loved the airiness, the great kitchen and the beautiful bathroom. It was a real pleasure to stay at Casa Coaba. Caroline and her family live downstairs, and we loved hearing her little boys laughing and playing in the yard. They were all great. Todos Santos is a beautiful little town with miles of magnificent beach every where and Caroline's apartment added to our experience. We will be back.

Nice place

A nice place for families to stay in Todos Santos. Our family of 5 fot perfectly and the living area was nice for my husband and I to hang out at night in.

Enjoyed it

We enjoyed the location and accommodations here. Caroline was very friendly and easy to communicate with. Aside from the kids during the day, the place was very quiet. If you intend to cook, be sure to bring spices and oil, but otherwise cookware is provided. The only thing that was slightly less than comfortable was the bed. It was very hard (and short for anyone taller than 6'). For the most part, we tuckered ourselves out enough during the day for it to not be much of an issue.
