“Exquisite”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Our family of 11, including 9 adults and two children (ages 5 and 10), stayed at the Villa Santa Cruz over Christmas week. We were absolutely delighted and in awe of the beauty of this place. I awoke the first morning to see whales spouting and leaping from my bed!

The details that the owners put into the design of this place makes it perfect for large groups like ours. The kitchen is well-stocked with cookware and serving dishes. Everyone had their own space to retreat to, whether it be their bedroom, the rooftop, the pool, the hot tub or the "crows nest" by the beach. And did I mention the design? Absolutely gorgeous.

We had some local chefs come in to prepare meals for us a few nights we stayed. This was very easy since Todos Santos is a small community and they all knew the place and the owners well. They knew the code to the front gate, their way around the kitchen and required no extra coordination on our part other than making the reservation. We also had a "body work" and "body movement" specialist come in for yoga on the rooftop and massage. Amazing.

There is a Turtle named Owen who lives in the fountain in the foyer. Kids loved feeding him and he is pretty cute.

This place is off the beaten path, which is exactly what we were looking for. It's about a 15 minute drive down a dirt road, so rental car is needed for groceries and getting into to town.

I highly recommend Villa Santa Cruz. We will be back...

I admit it....I'm one of those people who take advantage of reviews on tripadvisor whenever I am preparing for a trip, but have never posted a review. After my second trip to Villa Santa Cruz in as many years I figured it was time to share our little secret with the world. We were lucky enough to rent the villa for four nights, and enjoy some of the most beautiful and relaxing sunsets we've seen in awhile.
The property owners, are not only easy to work with during trip planning, they also have every need accounted for once you arrive, despite the solitude of the property. On both trips we have had our expectations exceeded by Iker, a local chef we found through the Villa Santa Cruz website. The local surf school was very accomodating with the delivery of surfboards to the property.
If you are planning on staying in Todos Santos, you will want to stay at Villa Santa Cruz.

Great views of the ocean, great to fall asleep listening to the waves, excellent breakfasts and lunches at the house. Rooftop fire pit was good. Much nicer than your standard cabo resort. Nearby town of todos santos has great restaurants.

Villa Santa Cruz is truly extraordinary!! We chose Villa Santa Cruz For our wedding. We rented all 4 rooms and the other house on the property for 6 days. We barely left property as we had picked up everything we would need and then some. Leading up to the "Big Day" was spent at the pool getting sun kissed. Once the wedding was over we went down to the beach with are best friends. We had a bon fire and let go Chinese Lanterns. The day after the wedding we played football on the beach while some cheered. We layed in the Palapa told stories and looked out for Whales.
Villa Santa Cruz is an "off the grid" magical place!!
Thank you Jessica and Matt we can't wait to come back!!

Room Tip: Beach view rooms are the largest of the four.

My husband and I will be leaving Mexico with smiles on our faces. We both want to thank Villa Santa Cruz for helping us have the fairytale wedding we both dreamed of. The Villa is one of a kind and the location is spectacular. Jessica, thank you so much for helping organize all the big things and the little details we would have over looked.

The villa is a beautiful piece of art and the setting it outstanding. The Villa is perfect for someone who appreciates ornate interior design and authentic antiques (such as an old juke box, piano, old horse cart etc.). The sunset and colorful tiles make this venue a dream come true for a photographer. I highly recommend renting a car here, so you can come and go easily into town. We stayed 5 nights in total for our wedding and we are looking forward to going back for our anniversary. When the rooms are rented individually you will be treated to a wonderful breakfast and lunch.





We will come visit you for our anniversary one year!

Room Tip: Agave room is our favourite!

I stayed at Villa Santa Cruz in late October for several days in between Loreto and Cabo. After having some time to reflect, I have come to the conclusion that this is simply the nicest place I have ever stayed. The Villa itself was quite obviously constructed without sparing any expense. Everything about it, from the skylight to the custom stairs to the rooftop bar, is perfect in almost every detail. Every room was designed to maximize views... and the views are nothing short of stellar. From my room on the ocean side, there were unobstructed vistas of the crashing surf from every imaginable location... including the shower and bath. The Villa is kept spotless and your suite is cleaned top to bottom each day.
The proprietors, Matt and Jessica, could not be more gracious and welcoming and bend over backward to cater to your every need. They are genuinely kind and friendly people and are passionate about providing a top notch experience to their guests.
If you are looking for a lovely and unique lodging experience in Baja, I highly recommend Villa Santa Cruz.

Room Tip: Spring for one of the Oceanside rooms... you will not regret it.

My husband and I traveled to Baja for a family celebration in Cabo. Although we enjoyed ourselves in Cabo, we could not wait to get to Villa Santa Cruz in Todo Santos. This boutique hotel is off the beaten path however the charm, design, and overall ambience of the villa is like no other. We were only able to stay two nights however we plan on bringing friends in December for a longer stay. The villa is well designed with beautiful Mexican, Spanish, and Moroccan influences. We were addicted to the fresh, clean smell of all of the linens. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool, rooftop deck, and beach palapa look-out for beautiful views of sunsets and sunrise, the ocean for miles, and surrounding mountains. The villa is in a perfect location to get away from it all however it is also close to town. We went in to town and had some surprisingly great food for dinner. The sashimi at several restaurants was some of the freshest we have had. The owners of Villa Santa Cruz, Matt and Jessica, are so friendly and really make you feel at home with not at all being intrusive. They have created an amazing paradise and we can't wait to enjoy it again soon.

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe suite for more space
