Los Colibris Casitas
Reviewed 18 December 2011

I can't express to you how beautiful and calming Los Colibris is. We have travelled to the southern Baja for ten years now, from La Paz, the east cape, Cabo, and Todos, but have never enjoyed a stay more than this place. We had just lost our older dog, Dallas, one week earlier - the furry hosts made this trip especially healing and wonderful! Fluke (Kitty) was a bit camera shy, but not otherwise - he also greeted us every day, as did all of the others. One of the fun highlights was watching all trotting after Sergio at sunset each day, going home. Coming back from the beach, or waking each morning as they all galloped down to greet us was soooo heartwarming! Don't know which was better, the views, your furries, or your people; I think maybe it is the combination of all which brings such charm and serenity. Sergio's brownies were a hit!
The beach walk is breathtaking, through the lagoon full of all things flying, (except bugs - we encountered no bugs); occassionaly we encounter a beach runner, but mostly it was just us, the frigates overhead, the ghost crabs (one challenged us with his itty bitty claw), and the pounding surf...
Sunsets rival any on Maui or Key West; the stars at night are reachable, the air is so fresh and clean. Absolute peace, tranquility, and relaxation. We will be back, again and again - next time I will bring biscuits for the furry hosts...

Room Tip: Any room is perfect; all have amazing views, are peaceful, quite and amazingly comfortable. I prefe...

Los Colibris is one of the warmest, most charming places we've ever had the pleasure of visiting in our many trips to Mexico and throughout the world. The casitas are nicely done, the grounds are beautifully planted and the location is perfect if you are looking for a peaceful place with phenomenal views. It's perched over a lagoon filled with wildlife that comes and goes with the cycles of the day. From the decks and patios we watched whales breach, dolphins roll by and dorado fish jump. The hosts are great and incredibly grounded in local lore and ecology. They have an eco-tour business and can arrange a variety of very well managed local adventures.

My sister and her husband had been to Los Colibris a couple of times times and always came back raving about it. We finally decided to go this year and I have to say that it surpassed our already high expectations. The views are breathtaking and the whole place is so relaxing and lovely we could scarcely tear ourselves away to go into town. We just loved having the dogs as our guides on our walks to the beach, and to share an afternoon nap around the pool with us. We really miss Juliette and Rosie! The grounds are so wonderfully laid out we really enjoyed all the little touches like the tiny zen garden and rake. If you like beautiful views and a natural environment you will love Los Colibris.

Room Tip: We stayed in Mr. Bing's Place and thought it was perfect.

We loved this place, but I thought it would be good to share some information that some patrons may be interested in knowing:
There are ants in the bathroom. My guess is that getting rid of all the ants involves lots of pesticides.
We didn't have hot water. This wasn't a problem for us and we didn't complain about it- it was so hot in TS that a tepid shower felt pretty good. There may have been a way to get hot water if we'd asked about it.
Plan on sharing your room with geckos that make little clicking noises all night long- we loved this, but some people may not.
Plan on some visits from the resident canine ambassadors. They're enthusiastic to meet you, not a problem if you like dogs, but if you don't it could be off-putting.

We stayed in the "La Churcha" casita. It was incredible. Here's why we've already recommended Los Colibris to our friends:
The view is amazing! No question it's the best view in Todos Santos!
Serenity. It's quiet and peaceful.
Value- I dare you to find a better bargain!
Privacy- we only saw one other guest, there's only 3 casitas so it's not a crowded place.
The geckos. We loved the song of the geckos in the night.
The hummingbirds- they're beautiful.
The decor, both interior and exterior. It's that perfect combination of homey and luxurious.
The rooftop terrace- we sat up there and watched the sun fall into the Pacific ocean.
The windows overlooking the ocean- my husband nudged me awake to watch the moon set-- it was lovely.
It's a short hike down to the virtually deserted beach.

We loved this place and maybe we'll get back there someday!

We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed your stay and that you are recommending Los Colibris Casitas to your friends - thank you! If you're contemplating a return please rest assured that there is plenty of hot water at Los Colibris - the pilot light for the hot water heater had simply gone out and it took just a few seconds to rekindle. Please do let us know about such issues in the future as we do not know there is problem unless you advise us during your stay. Likewise the ants have been relocated to a more suitable, outdoor location and their point of ingress blocked .

We're so happy that you enjoyed the geckos, hummingbirds, dogs, views - all the nature of Los Colibris - as much as we do! The geckos are, of course, renowned as great guardians of the home and harbingers of luck. Here in Baja they are called kissing geckos because of the smooching sound they make. And during your stay it's quite possible that you saw 2 of Baja's endemic species of hummingbirds - the Costa's and the Xantus's - both quite beautiful and enamored of the flowers that grow around the property.

We very much hope that you'll be able to join us again sometime soon, and we look forward to welcoming any of your friends and family who may decide to take your advice and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of Los Colibris for themselves.

With warm regards,
Sergio and Bryan

Los Colibris is beautiful! Todos Santos is safe and the residents are super friendly and helpful. Sergio and his family are the most welcoming hosts anyone could ask for. We would return again in a heartbeat.

We just returned from a trip to Todos Santos and had a thoroughly wonderful stay at Los Colibris Casitas. My husband, three children (7,5, and 2) stayed in this charming two bedroom house and found it very comfortable and full of thoughtful touches. The master suite upstairs in beautiful with a terrific view. The view from the house was amazing and we enjoyed eating out on the porch for several meals. The entire house was very well equipped which helped to make our stay very enjoyable - so many nice amenities. The house was not very child proof, but we have come to expect that in Mexico. The building codes are completely different. It is perfect for children 5 and up - and probably babies who are not walking as well, but not ideal for children 2-4. I had a little trouble sleeping because of the unfamiliar sounds outside (rooster, dogs, gardener), but I am a very light sleeper and rarely sleep well on vacation. The best part of our trip was having the owner, Sergio, take us on several guided tours. We went kayaking, snorkeling and took a trip to see mountain potters. I am so glad we did not rent a house on our own because we could never have put together such an amazing week. Not only was Sergio a fantastic guide - unbelievably knowledgeable and endlessly patient with our very talkative children, but he also was able to provide us with surf lessons, babysitting and even having a wonderful meal cooked in our home. We loved his dogs who follow him everywhere. We were a little disappointed at first to learn that the closest beach is a bit of a hike and not swimmable, but most of the beaches in that area are not meant for swimming. The pool was perfectly fine and our children would have been happy just staying there all day. The road to town is quite bumpy, but I did finally get used to it. Overall, we had a memorable vacation with a tremendous variety of experiences. I would highly recommend Los Colibris Casitas.
