“VSC - Year two was even better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

This was our second year staying at VSC, and our group of eight had more fun than last year. Rated VSC a five last year and wished I could rate it a six this year!
The facility continues to be perfect for four couples and hasn't in any way aged another year. The improved Wi-Fi is great, the wind shield around the pool allowed us even MORE time in the sun, and the remodeled kitchen is more functional with high-end appliances.
We cooked in four nights, had Ikeer Algorri from Cafe Brown come to the villa and create amazing meals two nights (Jessica can arrange for you), and ventured into town a few nights.
Plenty of room on the rooftop to watch whales, have a cocktail party or even execise.
The Villa continues to be a relaxing, tranquil gem in Todo Santos. Can't wait until Year Three!

Room Tip: All rooms are great and very different. If you want to fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean stay...

We just spent 4 days at the Villa Santa Cruz with our friends for a birthday celebration. This was our 2nd time there. My husband and I find the Villa almost magical. We have done alot of travelling and stayed at a lot of different places but it is so inviting, relaxing and special at the Villa that words can hardly describe it, you have to feel it for yourself!! Matt and Jessica are perfect hosts and they have so many little details that make your vacation one to remember. The Villa is so uniquely decorated and the beach and views are stunning. We have stayed both visits in one of the deluxe suites that come with large bathtubs to soak in with an ocean view. The beds and bedding are comfy and deluxe. The town of Todos Santos is also just minutes away with shopping and neat restaurants to try. We go the the Hotel California there for drinks and dinner often. We also had a private chef from town come to the Villa and cook us dinner, as you really dont want to leave when you are there! We highly recomend a vacation at the Villa Santa Cruz as soon as you can go!! Rob and Deb Lucas

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful but the deluxe suites with the ocean view are awesome!

From the moment you arrive, you know this is going to be something special.

Everything is beautiful and well thought out from the Villa itself, the wonderful, fresh food, rooftop sunset, the large pool and spa, the Palapa on the beach, to the wonderful hosts Jessica & Matt! It is all grand! We highly recommend this beautiful, relaxing, stunning Villa! I can't wait to return.

Room Tip: We had breakfast every morning on the balcony of our beautiful suite looking at the Pacific Ocean...

Jessica and Matteo Canepa's Villa is absolutely beautiful. I am leery of internet pictures....the pictures you see do not do the Villa justice. The Villa is exquisite. Each of the 4 bedrooms are wonderful. I stayed in Ballena, coffee was by my door at 7:30 or before. If I felt like it, I drank it on the patio attached to my room or laid in bed, watching the spouting whales go by. Some mornings, walking along the beach with the Villa's mix of dogs.
Matteo's breakfasts were divine; Jessica's lunches..superb. Their food was so fresh and from local organic farmers . Two nights, we hired a local chef to prepare our dinner at the Villa...beautiful, delicious and fun.
Our stay was mixed with relaxation, exploring Todos Santos wonderful art and shopping, whale watching excursion, swimming with whale sharks in La Paz and walks on the beach.
Hope to return soon!!

Room Tip: Ballena or Aguave are on the ocean side.

We visited Todos Santos all the way from Brooklyn, NY for the Todos Santos Music Festival at the end of January. After 3 fun nights in town we moved over to the Villa for a relaxing four night stay. From the moment we pulled up to the house we knew we were in for a treat. The building itself is just stunning, everything from the entry way fountain, to all 4 bedrooms, bathrooms, balconies, to the glass staircase all the way up to the roof deck. Then there's the property- the scenery, greenery, ocean views, the Palapa and the massive POOL! Endless places to just relax and soak up the sun while watching the whales play out at sea. Everywhere you turn is peaceful and beyond private. Jessica & Matt were gracious hosts and fabulous cooks, accommodating our every need. Take advantage of the private chef services for dinner, they were great. Would love to visit again!

Beyond our fondest dreams and yet there could have been more -- if we only had the time.
Jessica & Mateo are such wonderful hosts. We felt right 'at home again'. This was our 2nd trip . . . last year it was way too short.
Our hosts graciously shared their 4 bedroom space (since we were - for our first 2 nights 'alone') until other guests arrived. Definitely magical / the stars, the pool, the palapa, the firepit, the ocean & the whales. Everyday brought wonderful breakfasts & lunches, all fresh fruits and fresh squeezed orange juice plus of course, coffee - besides the pot brought to your door every morning.
Mateo was very informative about dining out, local interesting spots to visit as well as what is near the Villa - just down the beach is the public beach where surfers make their runs. On our last day on the beach we had a big fish sighting. Just like the internet pic - a fish in the wave.
We don't know for sure what that big fish was, but boy what a wonderful photo op!
(Not to exclude Jessica's knowledge, but we were more interested in the 'out-of-the-way local native' fares, so Matt was our personal source. Being married for 40 yrs this year, we only wish we could have had our wedding here with Jessica & Matt's help.) The grounds are improving every year and the beauty therefore, only increases.
Enough said -- you have to come to Villa Santa Cruz to enjoy not only the place and the atmosphere but also the friendly and most accommodating hosts.

Room Tip: If you want to experience both sunset and sunrise, take the rooms facing the ocean.

The location is extremely beautiful, romantic, and idyllic. Jessica + Matt could not have been more pleasant and accommodating. Our only regret was not reserving one of the deluxe rooms with the balcony facing the ocean (all have ocean views) so we could have more time to watch the whales frolicking nearby.
