“Serendipity equals serenity”
Reviewed 16 July 2009

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful B&B for a few days in April. Serendipity is located in a very quiet area north of Todos Santos. Sharon supplied excellent directions and we quickly found the place. The road to this area is very dusty but was easily traveled. We were shown to our room and given a tour of the property. Our room was very nice and the common areas including the pool and the lookout tower ( a great place to watch the sunset) were spotless. It is a short 10 minute walk to the beach which was deserted for miles. The ocean is unsuitable for swimming but wonderful for long walks. We went to a beach down the coast, Los Cerritos, which was great for swimming and boogie boarding. We were sent off with all the tools for a great day at the beach including chairs, umbrella, cooler and a boogie board.
I can honestly say that we have never had so many choices for breakfast at a B&B. Sharon was open to any and all requests. My husband loved the fresh juices and I was very fond of Sharon's green chili on my omelets.
The recommendations for restaurants were perfect. We love the smaller mom and pop places and Sharon steered us in the right direction.
Thanks to Sharon and Harry for a lovely stay at Serendipity, we hope to return someday.

My family and I had planned our Todos Santos trip for months. When our place to stay fell through at the last minute when we arrived, Sharon accepted us warmly with open arms. We stayed almost a week at this beautiful B&B and feel we have been spoiled and made some wonderful new friends.

The location is one of our favorite, a short walk to one of our favorite beaches. The room was perfect. Our young son slept on the pull-out sofa outside of our room, so we all felt close, but, had privacy. The kitchen was fully-equipped, which is a must with a child. And, we even had 2 bathrooms!

We all loved the pool/jacuzzi and large comfortable patio. The grounds were magical, with local plants, trees and animals all around. The way the sun came up and went down each day was stunning to see.

Our favorite part of our stay was the warmth we received each day from Sharon, her husband, Harry and Lupita...and of course the pups! Each morning we could not wait to go to breakfast and eat the most wonderful dishes, made to order. Fresh coffee, huevos rancheros with fresh salsas, fresh yummy fruit plates, etc. You really could not beat that!

We just could not boast enough about this wonderful place to stay. We highly recommend it.

We spent a magical week at Sharon & Harry's beautiful B & B. We truly felt special;treated to a sumptous breakfast (loved that French toast,!!!!) each morning. Our casita was beautifully decorated; the bed was as comfortable as our own !!
Roads in this area of Todos can be challenging (very bumpy and dusty ) After some serious car trouble on our last night there, Sharon helped us immeasureably--and stayed with us until we were sorted out-giving true meaning to hosting and giving extra care of your guests when needed.---Thank you, thank you--hope to return someday soon----Mike Browning/Arlene Smith, Roseneath, Ontario, Canada

In between our week in Cabo San Lucas and a week in San Jose del Cabo, we spent a weekend at Seredipity. It was worth following the page long directions along bumpy dirt roads to be welcomed by Harry and Sharon at Serendipity.

Our favorite activity each morning was a very long walk along the beach a short walk down the road. The empty beach was magical as huge waves crashed to our feet.

It was a great base for exploring Todos Santos and we took a day trip to La Paz, so we did not spend the time lounging around the pool or sipping from the bar that we might the next time we go, We were, however, grateful to be present for Lupita's first solo breakfast, which was delicious and very special.

We are thinking about how to get a group of friends to come and take over the whole place. It would be great fun!!

Wow!

Our original plan was to stay just two nights. But we found such solitude and happiness here at Serendipity - that we chose to stay one additional night.

My wife and I stayed in the "Ocean View" casita - which was perfect! During the day - fresh summer ocean breezes wafted through the windows (though given the September heat - the AC was welcome for sleeping at night).

On the first morning - we enjoyed a simply yummy 'desayuno' of fresh fruit - with mangoes and bananas right off Serendipity's trees - plus superb 'juevos rancheros' - done in Sharon's New Mexico style. Passion-fruit juice was a treat!

We spent the day by the pool and at the nearby Pacific Ocean - as well some time bird-watching in the beautifully flowering "desert nature preserve" between the pool and ocean. Wood creepers, wood peckers, many hummingbirds, Kestrels, Quail, Roadrunners, Pelicans, Frigate birds, and many other shorebirds can be observed - and well as desert hares and geckos. Sunset from the "tower" was spectacular! At night - we sat outside and gazed at the Milky Way.

On the second morning - we awoke to find the host's dogs (Concha and Raya) waiting outside our room! They encouraged us to accompany them on the five minute walk down to the Pacific ocean beach - which we did. These are two sweet, well-mannered dogs - and they let you know how appreciative they are for your company. This morning walk quickly became a ritual for our stay.

The grounds are meticulously maintained - and with all the rain from TS Julio weeks earlier - most of the desert plants were in full bloom.

We also loved the pueblo of Todos Santos. Though it was the first week of September - and a few shops/restaurants were closed for holiday - we enjoyed delicious meals at "Mi Costa" (e.g. shrimp ceviche and hot steamed shrimp), "Miguel's" (e.g. chille rellenos) and the restaurant in the Hotel California (e.g. Puerco Asado en Mole and grilled Dorado or Mahi-Mahi).

We are looking forward to returning to Todos Santos - but especially - returning to Serendipity!

Sharon and Harry have really created an beautiful oasis in the Baja desert.

We're part-time Los Cabos locals who live in Cabo (my husband is Mexican, I'm Canadian), and we can't believe what a jewel we found at Serendipity. We're familiar with all the Cabo hotels, some of those in Todos Santos, and many in La Paz, and we have never, ever, experienced a place like this. We live in Cabo, on the beach, and still didn't want to go home! We planned to stay for two nights and ended up staying six - and the only reason we left was because we had business commitments we couldn't cancel! The breakfasts were big and wonderful (lots of fresh fruit, mangos right off the tree, and made-to-order eggs or anything else that you feel like in the moment), and Sharon and Harry are wonderful hosts. The place is spotless, and so charming - it's clear that it was created with much love and care - they really wanted to create a tranquil oasis where people can come to rejuvenate and truly relax. Be sure to ask Sharon to tell you the story of how they came to create this wonderful B & B. You feel like you're in the countryside, but right on the beach (which is endless and isolated), and the quaint restaurants and "town life" of Todos Santos are just a few minutes away by car. You will love it.

Words can't truly descripe Serendipity. It's similar to a B&Bl but MUCH better! There are 2 tower rooms & 2 casitas for rent all seperate from the main house. There is a pavilion style room where the main kitchen & living room are located. We stayed in the lower tower room next to the pool/hot tub. From the top stroy of the tower there are beautiful views of the ocean & sunsets.. The breakfasts are supreb cooked to order with fresh furit & juice served on the back or front patio. These breakfasts are huge & can easily hold you until wandeing into town for dinner. This place is beautiful with every attention to detail taken it is a rare find. The hosts, Sharon & Harry, (along with mascots Raya & Concha who love to walk guests down to the beach) are great, it's apparent they love to share their home, they go out of thier way to make you feel comfortable & welcome. We can't thank them enough for sharing their "little piece of heaven". Serendipity is highly recommended for everyone, it's quiet with every amenity. We plan to come back next year to rent a casita!
