Aerial view, Villa Santa Cruz, Todos Santos BCS

If quaint boutique laid-back luxe on a surf beach is your desire, Villa Santa Cruz will exceed your expectations. Only 5 minutes from downtown Todos Santos but a world away from the lights and paved roads. 

This is the Baja that dreams are made of. Rarely do you encounter a vacation property that has an attention to detail so finely engrained that even their house tequila is custom labeled in a barrel. The property was purchased in 2001 and slowly developed into this unmistakably delightful retreat. With only four suites in this hacienda style home on acreage you wonder how they can offer so many amenities for such a modest price. The grounds are meticulously maintained. Rooms are each unique and what great, comfortable bedding. The towels and robes are lush. The pool area is just steps from the house and will make you forget about the gorgeous beach until you desire a surf session or a long walk down the beach. The double decked palapa has shaded hammocks on the beach and the second story is like its own living room in a tree house with views that seem endless. The home is a two story hacienda with comfortable shared living space on the ground level and the four separate suites on the second level. The stairs are an engineering marvel made of steel and glass tiles. The roof deck enjoys a bar, living area and a fire pit for those cooler desert evenings. Star gazing on the roof is perfect since there are no city lights, especially on evenings with no moon. The villa is so comfortable and well equipped that you won’t want to leave. We were planning a nice dinner in Todos Santos with plenty of exceptional options but decided to cook in and enjoy the place to ourselves. The open kitchen is a gourmet’s delight plus BBQ grill equipped with everything for a large or small group. Villa Santa Cruz is built on over 20 acres with plans to expand starting this June. 8 stilted cabanas are scheduled to be built surrounding the pool in a tasteful way that will continue to offer intimate privacy. This relaxed and casual atmosphere is popular for individuals, as a group retreat and for weddings.Breakfast is complimentary and was an event unto itself with coffee, fresh juice, bagels, cereals, and an amazing eggs Benedict. They rotate the menu so every morning brings a new option. We set up a late check out the next day and spent most of the morning bouncing between the second story palapa and the heated pool. Proprietors Matt and Jessica Canepa live on site in a separate home and are there for anything you need, obviously devoted to making your stay a wonderful experience. We were sad to pack up and actually drive away. Oakley our devoted mascot looked even sadder and had to be literally dragged back to the truck. Well every great stay comes to an end but the great news is we get to return and see the expansions underway. Stay tuned, we’ll keep you updated!
