“Best Vacation Ever!”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of staying at the Serendipity for a week in March 2013. What a FABULOUS experience! Sharon and Harry were the best hosts one could possibly imagine. Sharon recommended "must do" experiences which we did and had the time of our lives. The stay includes breakfast which is prepared by Patricia. Upon ordering her Huevos Racheros con Salsa Roja, she said to me, "Buena Suerte!" I showed her! The greatest concentration of "caliente" I have experienced and I could not get enough (surprising still, I lost weight on this trip). It was so peaceful at the Hotel Serendipity that I realized all of my aches and pains I was feeling in the States disappeared when I was here. It is nice falling asleep to only the sound of waves crashing on the shore, which was a brief five minute walk.

There are a lot of nice places to stay in the Todos Santos area, but Serendipity suited us perfectly. They are close to the beach but not on the beach, so the waves don't pound your ears. They are close to town, but not in town, which is pretty noisy and dusty. They are just north of town and a drawback has been finding them among all the dirt roads. However, the main road north is being paved to within two blocks of them this spring. Sharon and Harry are giving, loving, trusting people and their small B&B gave us just the right feeling. Breakfasts by the pool were wonderful. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Tell Sharon what you like and she'll make a great choice for you.

We go to Todos Santos every year, and had been staying in another B and B that was beautiful, but quite pricey. We found Serendipity on the Internet and thought we'd give it a try. Well, to our pleasant surprise, it was just beautiful, and had every amenity we'd want for a fraction of the price the other place we stayed at cost. Sharon and Harry Morris, expats, are the owners. Their hospitality, stories about how they got started, and the 4course made to order breakfast, has gotten us back for the third year! They have 10 rooms in different configurations, including 2 casitas, each with 2 baths for families or " girls' " weekends. As a bonus, the road to get there is now almost totally paved!

Room Tip: Sharon is very accommodating. Explain what you are looking for and she will try to make it happen fo...

Serendipity is a jewel. Stayed here with my wife and two small children for 4 nights, and wish it could have been longer. I like the location better than in-town Todos Santos because you have your own piece of heaven to come home to at night. The only downside it that you have to drive home at night after dinner so it limits the tequila tasting you can do in town (though I imagine cabs are pretty cheap as the drive is only 5 minutes). Yes part of the drive is on a dirt road and the rest is a little bumpy, but not a big deal, except for the first time as directions confusing (especially at night). The beach is a short walk away (yes, it is not a swimable beach, but none of the Todos Santos hotel beaches are swimable...you have to drive to Cerritos (10 minutes south of TS) for a dip in the Pacific.)

Sharon and Harry are welcoming, as is their staff. The breakfast is the highlight and just about everything is very tasty (though they need to work on their Chilaquiles recipe). Rooms are nicely decored and comfortable - my only suggestion would be to do a more thorough cleaning each day (but this is a B&B, not a hotel, so don't expect the total hotel-type service - they do make beds and empty trash)

We tired of the Cabo noise and traveled north to Todos Santos. Unfortunately we only had one night left in our stay because we would love to have stayed a week or more at Serendipity. Sharon and Harry make you feel totally at home from the first minute you arrive, and their 3 dogs are always around to greet you and get petted.

They have a beautiful pool and hot tub to relax in and around plus a short walk to the beach down a trail from the bottom of the resort. The beach is not swimmable (undertows), but is so clean, quiet, and unpopulated. We watched several pods of whales travel by in the distance. Adjacent to the hotel on the beach is a turtle sanctuary where they raise the turtle eggs and get them back into the surf when they hatch. This is seasonal of course, but just another cool thing about the area.

The rooms are all unique and well appointed. A delicious cooked to order breakfast is served every morning. Many of the fruits served are actually grown on the property as they try to be as self sufficient as possible and support conservation wherever they can. You need to travel back into town for dinner, but Sharon can give you some great local dining direction.

The drive out to Serendipity is a slow one on dirt roads, but is entirely passable with a normal rental car. You definitely need a rental car here - a walk into town would be too long. Try to arrive in the light if you can, and make sure that you have a good map (available in town) before venturing out. They are currently working on the roads in the area, so expect a few detours.

We look forward to a return visit in the future. Try it, you'll love it.

This place is amazing, a corner of haven, a charming and small boutique hotel with great attention to details...a dream that becames real in our vacation in Baja.

Sharon and her husband make you feel at home and they are very kind helping you in organizing your stay at Todos Santos, I really appreciate their gentle way to manage their hotel.

The breakfast is fantastic with fresh juice from the garden, fruits, eegs as you prefer, tacos, beans, home made jams...so nice having breakfast looking at the ocean with many whales jumping in front of you! Yes the whales, this was incredible, a lot of whales passing just in front of the hotel...so nice!

The rooms are all gems, everyone different from the other, we stayed in two different rooms, both so beautiful, relaxing, quite, with so comfortable beds, very well decorated with mexican ceramic.

The cherry was the jacuzzy and the pool!After a beach day there is nothing better that come back at Serendipity and watch the sunset from the heated jacuzzy enjoing a fresh margarita.

So this place is highly reccomended, is very easy to reach , 5 minutes by car from the center of Todos Santos in a very quiet area, on the ocean side.

I thank so much Sharon and her husband for make our stay so special

Room Tip: All the rooms are fantastic!

We can't wait to go back to this magical place! As we pulled into Serendipity, an overwhelming sense of calm came over me. We were immediatly greeted by 3 friendly loving dogs, and then by Sharon who is the owner. She could not have been more welcoming and kind. The rooms were perfect and beautifully decorated, and the property was just gorgeous. We felt so at home here and had the most amazing breakfast! You will not be disappointing staying here. I can't think of anything negative to say - it was literally perfect.

Room Tip: any room is perfect.
