Casa Rancho
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Spent 5 nights at Casa Rancho with some friends on a surf trip. Super place with all you need to have that local feel with the comforts of a fine home. The pool which is a new addition to property was a huge bonus. Can't say enough about the owner, friendly, knowledgeable about the area, made sure you had everything you needed, and hooked us up with some great spots to surf!
Great kitchen with lots of space to relax. Short drive or bike ride to town or the beach. The owner has bikes to use at no charge. Highly recommend this place if you're heading to Todos Santos!

Room Tip: They are all good.

Casa Rancho is a very charming property with all of the amenities you need for a relaxing vacation. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and family. From relaxing by the pool to watching the sunset from the roof top terrace this place is perfect. Alec has really built a comfortable and charming place to stay. His local knowledge of the area is also a great bonus to anyone staying here. Great place at a great value.

Great style and incredibly comfortable accommodations, a place to loose yourself in the middle of the dessert. Spend your day by the pool, watch the sunset in your hamaca at the roof and enjoy the grilling at the open air or cooking and sharing your meals with family and friends in the wonderful kitchen dining living room area. Much more that you will expect for the price you pay.

Thanks Alex for all your tips and attentions. I will definitely will find my way back to your place.

We stayed at Casa Rancho for 2 weeks with our 2 young sons. The price when I made the reservations was so low that I wasn't really sure what to expect when we arrived. We were very pleasantly surprised, to say the least. The rooms are well equipped, charming, and very appealing. The grounds were beautiful, the location perfect, and the atmosphere was conducive to a fabulous vacation. We met some other families and our kids all had a great time together. The set-up of Casa Rancho makes it easy to share meals with others and have as much or as little privacy as you would like.

We rented the casita that had its own kitchen and not an actual bedroom. I would recommend this for a couple - not a family. The two side-by-side rooms, each with its own bathroom, to the west of us is probably the best bet for a family. These rooms share a large, beautiful kitchen/lounge.

There is another large kitchen/lounge that is shared by another group of rooms. If you don't mind sharing a kitchen - this is really the way to go (in my opinion).

The way that Alec has arranged the rooms would make Casa Rancho ideal for a family reunion type vacation. We are already thinking of proposing it to our cousins.

This is a safe, chill area with many dining, beach, activity options. Alec is great at giving recommendations for whatever you are looking to do. He also has bikes, boogie boards, fins, BBQ available for use.

Stop at Costco on the way from the SJD airport for some basics, but there are many "mini supers" nearby with tons of fresh fruits and vegetables, homemade tortillas and bread, etc.
Take a fishing trip with Lee (Alec can connect you) and you'll have more fish than you can eat and share.

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Rancho. Alec had give us directions and we followed the squiggly written signs to the place. It is a lovely place surrounded by a wall and fence and had a "carport" for the car if we wanted it. As 2 adults and 2 children this place was perfect for us. Once we drove their it was not hard to find even at night. It has a nice pool to cool off in and a great patio above the garage, this is a perfect place for morning coffee or a drink and watch the sun go down. The style of the place captures the essence of Todos Santos but is not lacking in comfort. I rooms are tastefully done and the color of the plaster on the walls was by true Artisans.
The kitchen/living room with a layered palm roof was a real treat. The gas stove was great to cook meals on and the grocery store was not far off. Being away from down town was perfect as it got us another step removed from the traffic and such. Our kids had great fun playing in the pool with the other kids staying their and we relaxed in the shade in comfy chairs. We used the Boogie boards supplied for some beach fun, which was a added bonus since we did not bring any of our own.
We cooked a big fish dinner and had it outside with the other people staying their, the big wood table fit 8 easily and made for a memorable experience. All in all it was a very comfortable place to spend a week at, it has the true essence of Baja and Todos Santos but dressed up enough to feel first class very well done.

Room Tip: the seperate kitchen/livingroom by the pool was the pick of the place.

What a great vacation! My family stayed in Alec's 3 bedroom unit at the end of March. We connected with two other families and shared some wonderful times at Casa Rancho. Alec provided very good information on activities and places in the area. This saved us some money and enhanced our experience considerably. Reserving the unit was easy and communication with Alec was excellent. We felt very safe and our kids enjoyed the freedoms that Casa Rancho had to offer. The price was very affordable and Casa Rancho would be an excellent choice for a couple, small family, or large group. The large resorts could never reproduce the Mexican authenticity that Casa Rancho did for us. We will definitely be repeating this trip and would certainly stay at Casa Rancho again. Best family vacation ever!

Room Tip: All rooms generally seem equal.

We were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful Casa Rancho was after making the bumpy drive through the desert outside of Todos Santos. Our room was clean, as was the shared bathroom that we used. We particularly liked the access to shared living room and kitchen, which were both well equipped. The pool was lovely too! Casa Rancho is a bit of a drive out of Todos Santos, so you would want a car if you were to stay here, and be willing to do the drive in the dark, if you want to be in Todos Santos for supper. We did this one night, and it was fine. The streets were well-lit. It's a very quiet, peaceful spot.
