About the property

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.

Ideal Family Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5

Ideal home for families with young children. We first stayed at Vista Ballena in May 2017 and returned in June 2018. There are a lot of other places in Mexico we would like to visit but we plan on returning to Vista Ballena ASAP. The house is well equipped, comfortable, and Amy (the property manager) is extremely helpful and accommodating. The house is perfect for our 5 and 3 year old boys. The pool is gated and the house is a very short walk from the beach. Our boys love it. Todos Santos is a wonderful town and community. I highly recommend Vista Ballena to any and all. If you book the house, be sure to ask Amy about prepared meals. On both visits we arranged to have dinners cooked by a wonderful local woman. Her cooking is excellent. The food is fantastic.

It was comfortable, clean, and kid friendly

  • 5 of 5

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.

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

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.

Very comfortable and relaxing location!

  • 5 of 5

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!
