Let the sounds of the surf lull you to sleep at night in this simple yet stylish and relaxing one room studio apartment. Located in a quiet and secure community of small homes and condos a half a mile from the apartment to the water, it takes most folks five to ten minutes to walk to the beach or like two minutes to drive. Todos Santos is less than 10 miles away or a 15 minute drive and Pescadero is right next door so it will take you about 5 mins by car to reach Baja Beans or the Pemex/Oxxo. Enjoy the communal pool, jacuzzi and seasonal restaurant on site.

This newly built cool, bright and airy second story studio apartment has an urban vibe with Mexican touches and is one of the best values in Cerritos! It's the top floor of a 2 story duplex. Since this is a very small one room apartment it's perfect for 2 or an economical option for parties of 3 or 4. To see the lower unit check out "Cerritos Desert Garden Surf Escape" here on airbnb.

This new studio apartment is the top floor of a 2 story duplex accessed by a SPIRAL STAIRCASE. It is approximately 500 sq ft total, 250 sq ft inside and 250 sq ft outside. Guests really love the outdoor kitchen/dining/hang out area under the palapa with views of the beach and mountains. Groups of 4, families with kids, and folks with long boards often prefer the lower unit bc it's larger, has an outdoor shower and hose, and there is a fence to put your boards behind so you don't have to lug them up the spiral stairs. This apartment is one small room (plus the outdoor living area) so if you are a group of 3 or 4 you might want to rent a 2 bedroom unit. Ask me about a discounted price if you'd like to rent both apartments.

This apartment has PRIVATE HIGH SPEED WiFi internet! Most of the other rentals (and homes) here in the Villas De Cerrritos Beach all share one pretty unreliable and slow communal hotspot with very limited bandwidth that can only be accessed outside by the pool, not in the apartment like mine. Please be aware that when other rentals here in the Villas say they have WiFi they are most likely talking about this one shared outside hotspot.

Inside you’ll find- a brand new queen sized bed, brand new love seat (that's a double sized sleep sofa), a coffee table, 2 ceiling fans, a new ac unit, 4 bed pillows, extra blankets, curtains, 2 night stands with reading lamps, a large dresser, dimable in ceiling halogen lights, brand new flat screen TV (only for DVDs), DVD player, private DVD library (more movies to borrow in office), cool art, books, playing cards, and a music player for ipods ( apparently it's made for older ipods, has the metal plate that you place into the bottom of the ipod and unfortunately I don't have a line in there at the moment but if you bring one you can use that), etc. The bathroom has a shower, large vanity, large mirror, a nightlight, lots of hooks and a window with desert views.

Outside you'll find a 250 sq ft palapa covered terrace with a small kitchen that includes a small gas range and oven with four burners, mini fridge, a sink, a cabinet and drawers. It's stocked with pots and pans, dishes, utensils, a french press or coffee maker, salt and pepper, ice trays, etc. It also has a table with 2 chairs, a hammock chair and extra seating is provided by a long wrap around built in banquette. Great views of the beach and mountains! Included with your rental are beach/pool towels (in the apartment, not in the office). And I try to provide a cooler, beach umbrella, and beach chairs but I can't guarantee these things.

The spiral staircase leads to the roof where there are amazing 360 views of the beach and mountains. It's the perfect spot for a surf check, sunset and sunrise viewing and star gazing. It's also great for doing yoga. The roof access is shared with the downstairs apartment.

Please keep in mind while looking at all the places for rent in the community that each is individually owned and therefore they are not the same. Here's why I think my places are special!- I've expanded and renovated my units and they contain many amenities that the other places probably don't have like- private WiFi in the apartments, enclosed bathrooms, new ac units, curtains, extra pillows, TVs with DVD players, kitchen cabinets, sleep sofas, beach chairs and a cooler bag and an umbrella for you to use, etc. This bungalow has more spacious grounds than most of the other rentals here. It's in a small house on a small piece of land, whereas the newer units here (called palapas and casitas) are all side by side with no land separating them and are accessed by a narrow pathway enclosed with a tall fence. My place has no neighbors on the backside. One guest complained about the vibration from the ac compressors on the roof.

Přístup pro hosty
Access to the communal pool and jacuzzi.

Pizza Napoli restaurant on site with good and reasonably priced salads, pastas and pizza with a full bar. The restaurant is seasonal and we never know what the dates of closure will be, though it's normally closed for a few weeks sometime during our low season which is August through October FYI.

The apartment comes with the use of a charcoal BBQ grill (kept on the first floor under the palapa) , beach chairs, beach umbrella and cooler.

Parking provided in our private lot.

Both units may access and use the roof.

Další věci, které stojí za zmínku
Because of the open sides on the terrace and the stair access, I don't rent this apartment to families with children under about 7 years old as it's just too dangerous for them. My downstairs apartment (also here on airbnb) should work well for you though : )

Dogs and cats live in and run around the complex fyi.

You can buy giant bottles of purified drinking water in the office inexpensively (exchange the empty one if there is one) and I have a dispenser/pump to use with it. If you have them carry it for you, tip them 5 or 10 pesos please. ( FYI you can buy them offsite at the aqua purificado places for 10 pesos or so with exchange of empty bottle).
Be sure to let me know if you will be using the sleep sofa so that I can have it made up for you.

Be sure to bring warm clothes! Long pants and sweatshirts are often needed in the evenings and mornings. Some times of the year you may also want a spring wetsuit for surfing.

Always, use caution in the ocean! Pay attention to the waves and current and what others around are doing, don't get caught in a rip tide. don't swim next to the rocks! Occasionally there are times when it's not safe to enter the water.

Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexiko

There are miles and miles of beautiful pacific coast beaches to explore around Todos Santos, but equally beautiful Cerritos is unusual for several reasons. It's considered safe for swimming, has surfing for all levels, has surfboard, SUP and boogie board rentals and lessons, restaurants, and bars. That being said, this is a small rural area so if you want more options for walking to bars and restaurants and also shopping (but not swimming beaches), then you'd probably be happier staying in the town of Todos Santos. Also, being just south of the tropic of cancer, sub tropical Cerritos enjoys a unique micro climate that makes it much cooler and less humid than Los Cabos or La Paz (typically 5-10 degrees Fahrenheit cooler). This is where folks from those nearby cities (and Todos Santos) come to cool off, relax, swim, surf and have a beach day with their families, especially popular on Sundays.

The apartment is a only a five to ten minute walk (half a mile or 800 meters) from the beach or a 15 min drive (9 miles) to Todos Santos. You can surf check the waves from the porch or roof and hear the sounds of the surf! Within 15 mins you can also walk to nearby Pescadero beach and two small pretty private beaches that are usually free or almost free of people (only swim at Cerritos though).

Miguel in the office is happy to help you find more info on local things to do, like fishing, snorkeling, surfing, seeing whales and whale sharks, etc.
The Journal Del Pacifico (free, all over town) is a great local magazine with very useful local maps that show all the restaurants, shops, services etc in the area. I leave copies in the units but if you see that there is a newer version, I would really appreciate it if you'd pick up a copy and leave it in the apartment for the next guests. You can find the places listed here in the maps section.
I suggest you look at the "Baja Western Onion" (online) for their weekly calendar of events (gallery openings, plays, bands, excursions, etc) and specials happening in the area during your trip. Trip Advisor is also useful for the area restaurants etc. Places come and go so I can't guarantee that this info is up to date.

In late December through March gray whales, humpback whales (and others) swim along the coastline sometimes very close to the shore.

Todos Santos=

Bank and ATMs- I suggest you get pesos by taking money from the ATM (they only issue pesos). However, there is a charge by the Mexican bank and probably your bank too, so to minimize fees take the largest amount possible. Todos Santos has the closest ATM and bank. You have your pick of Bancommer or Bannorte. Both have ATMs but I am pretty sure that only banknorte will exchange your dollars for pesos. Note- you can basically pay with dollars anywhere but you will not get a good rate of exchange. So if you have to pay with dollars, use smaller bills so you don't lose as much money.

Groceries- El Sol has staples and gringo stuff like monterey jack cheese. Que Rico is a wonderful tiny shop that has better (and often organic) meats and locally made/prepared foods like hummus, carrot cake, yogurt, etc. Mexico Gourmet (in the back of the book store) is owned by the same folks as Mexican Soul (see shopping). They are master Mezcaliers and have a large selection of mezcal and special Mexican items like chocolate. Lazarga has the largest selection of fruit and vegetables.

Shopping- Sunrise del Muerto and Mexican Soul have cool, inexpensie, unusual Mexican arts and crafts. Most of the art in my apartments came from these 2 shops and yes I love their stuff! Mexican Soul has 2 locations in town, one is called Mexico Gourmet, and also has an amazing selection of Mexcal. The owners are even master Mezcalartisas. Therer are 2 surf shops in town. Brillanti and Agua y Sol are my choices for jewelery. Tesoro Escondido Segunda is a second hand/thrift store with very inexpenive items, mostly cothes. El Tecolote bookstore has great books, maps, cards, etc and she also sells stamps, and is a reliable place to send cards and postcards from.

Restaurants- Alma Y Manny is the go to for locals for good, inexpensive Mexican food and breakfast. El Refugio has great (but fairly expensive) Mexican dinners but they only make 2 dishes a night. Cafe Todos Santos has good breakfast, coffee and baked goods. Other Todos restaurants picks are Chez Laura for French food, Derek Sushi for sushi, La Casita for tapas, Barajas for meat tacos, Mariscos El Sinaloense for fish and shrimp tacos, Rumi Garden for Asian. La Esquina is on the other side of Todos and they have great breakfast and coffee, a wonderful community market on Wednesdays, and great music events on some nights.

Cerritos and Pescadero=

Convenience Stores- In Pescadero, there are 2 OXXOs, they are like 711. Everyone goes there, locals and gringos alike. Brody's is the original mini mart and pizza restaurant in Cerritos. Brody and his wife Gregoria are great folks! They also sell Mexican souvenirs. There is also Kimberly's minimart with cafe, it's the closest to my place.

Restaurants/Bars- In Cerritos in addition to Brody's pizza, I highly recommend Pizza Napoli. It is our seasonal on site restaurant with great pizza and simple Italian food at very reasonable prices. The Free Souls club is a restaurant and bar nearby (look to your left as you walk to the beach, white building). It has a chic and modern vibe, a mini heated infinity pool, and cool music. I've heard the food is great, but I haven't eaten there. There prices are pretty high. The Hacienda is the beautiful orange building on the rocks above the beach. It's a boutique hotel that has a bar that's open to the public with incredible views especially at sunset, great for whale watching, also pricey but the best place to watch whales and the sunset. On the beach, the former Surf Colony has a restaurant and bar and live music on weekend days. There is also a bar at the Desert Moon hotel and a bar /restaurant called Barracuda that I like in front of Las Olas hotel.
In Pescadero there are many little places but folks rave about restaurants Carlitos Place and Hierbabuena, both pricey. For inexpensive tacos and Mexican food, right before the sign for Baja Beans on the highway in Pescadero going towards Todos on the left is Tacos Emmanuel. They have great inexpensive fish and shrimp tacos and breakfast, it's clean, they speak English and I love their condiments/salsa bar too! For breakfast my favorite place is Las Palmas restaurant, in the parking lot of Baja Beans. My picks are the shrimp omelet and the Las Palmas seafood quesadilla. They have WiFi.

Coffee- Baja Beans in Pescadero (see their sign on your left as you head towards Todos), has excellent coffee and pastries and a wonderful (seasonal) community market with live music and local artisans on Sundays. They also have WiFi and sell beans that they roast themselves.

Fruits and Veggies- Just past the Pemex in Pesacdero (as you head towards Todos), on the right is Fruiteria Ortiz = outdoor stand under a palapa. They have the best selection and prices on fruits and vegetables in the area. A bit further on the highway towards Todos Santos, on the left, is Agrycole. They also have fruits and vegetables, freshly baked bread and pastries, salsas etc. and organic whole chickens. They are known for their strawberries in season and often carry fruits and veggies that Ortiz does not carry.

Yoga- Baja Zen is an awesome yoga studio overlooking the ocean and is an easy 5-10 min walk away in Pescadero. Check out their website for photos and seasonal schedules.

Healthcare and Emergencies- Go to the office for advice, help and emergencies. Todos Santos has St Judes Medical Center and the very inexpensive government health center.

Massage- My friend Jan from Canada (she speaks Spanish too) is an excellent and certified masseuse (believe me, I've had hundreds of massages). Her local number is 612-120-9723. She may be able to bring her table and come here (for an additional charge) or you may go to her in Todos Santos.

Local Beaches-
- Playa Los Cerritos (my beach): This is the safest swimming beach for miles in either direction. The beach is great for surfing (beginners to intermediates), SUP and boogie boarding with rentals and lessons available. Coastal Azul Surf Shop is the original Cerritos surf rental business and they now have a shop off the beach, in front of Hotel Olas de Cerritos. Mario Surf School is a reputable place to take lessons, rent equipment, get repairs or sign up for a surfari, they have a website!

Other beaches to walk to- When you head to the beach from here, straight down the road and ahead on the beach you see a fenced parking lot and gate. This is the Cerritos Beach Club. It used to be open to the public but now apparently it's not unless you spend $1,000 pesos in their restaurant/bar. But, if you look to your right (you're facing the beach), you will see a small road right there at the end of the beach under the rocks. That's public access and you can park there for free. There are 2 other public access roads with parking just south of this one. Drive along the beach road and you will see them. There are some break ins there so be sure to lock your car and just don't leave stuff in sight inside and you should be fine.
To access the smaller almost private beaches, from here go towards the beach and use the road that heads up the hill to the Hacienda, but go right at the top (instead of left to the hotel/bar) and follow that north along the coast and up and over the hills. Twice you will see a 4wd road that heads down the hill to the beach. If you go past those and down the other side you will be on the beach in Pescadero.

Alternatively to walk to the beach in Peacadero, leave my place like you are heading to the beach but take the 1st road to your right (to the left it goes to Free Souls and straight ahead it goes up the hill to the hacienda). Follow that and go left at the T and then you will see the beach right in front of you (and you will pass Baja Zen on the right). If you walk up that beach you will reach the surf break San Pedrito near the end, before the big hills that hit the beach.

Other Beaches close by-
Playa La Pastora: Playa La Pastora is located about 5 miles north of Todos Santos. It is a favorite with surfers, as the waves are sometimes good here when no others spots are producing. When it does get big, this is the place to go for experienced surfers as it can get pretty big and retain its shape. When that is the case you will likely find that Playa La Pastora will become pretty crowded with surfers. Novices should not enter the water here, especially alone. Access is by way of Topete street which turns into Horizonte which turns into the coastal road, going north.

Playa La Cachora: This beach is popular with whale watchers, beachcombers, skim boarders, exercise aficionados and the local turtle conservation group, as it is one of the many nesting places, along the Pacific, for several species of sea turtles. The surf fishing can be excellent here with the best time being early morning. No Swimming Please! Access from town is by way of Topete street (go west) to La Cachora road that also takes you to El Hotelito.

Playa La Poza: One of the more popular and out of the ordinary beaches in Todos Santos, mainly because of the freshwater lagoon. Playa La Poza is a bird watchers paradise as the lagoon attracts an amazing number of birds. This beach is good for surf fishing, especially in the early hours of the morning. In late December through March gray whales, humpback whales (and others) swim along the coastline sometimes very close to the shore. If the ocean is very calm experienced swimmers can enjoy a refreshing dip in the Pacific. Not an experienced swimmer, then - No Swimming Please! Stay out of the lagoon, as it too can be dangerous and it's deeper than you might imagine. Access from Vidal street in town, then follow the signs to Hotel Posada La Poza.

Punta Lobos: This is the beach where the local fishermen ply their trade. They launch their pangas, through the waves, early in the morning and spend up to eight hours (or more) fishing on the Pacific. This is where you can most likely buy fish (the freshest you can possibly get) in the early afternoon. You may also be able to arrange a fishing trip from Punta Lobos, but you had better brush up on your Spanish, as very few of the fishermen speak any English. If the whales are present and the fishing is slow, it is possible to get the fishermen to take you whale watching. This is a great place to take the kids to let them see some locals who are really hard workers and very dedicated fishermen. There is a colony of Sea Lions that hang out just around the south point. No swimming please! Access from Vidal street in town, (head south) or from highway 19 at Km. market 54.

Playa Las Palmas - aka - Playa San Pedro: This is my favorite local beach! Playa Las Palmas is a smaller, rather secluded beach, maybe one half mile long, that is usually void of any crowds. The beach is gated, a 5 minute walk through a pleasant palm grove. The beach has a small lagoon that can be a good area for bird watching and a family oh horses often come here to drink. Playa Las Palmas is protected by rocky points at both ends of the beach. This is a great area to spend a day hiking, swimming (use the middle stretch of the beach but be careful), body surfing, skim boarding, and sometimes surfing or just plain relaxing. Take all necessities (food, drink etc.) as there are no concessions at all. Driving south, toward Pescadero, there is a small (almost invisible) turnoff at Km. 57 maker - just across the highway from the research station, then follow the dirt road to the gate. They sometimes close the gate at 6 PM, so be prepared to drive out by 5:30 PM. Pack your trash out - leave only footprints, please!

Playa San Pedrito: Located at the north end of Playa Pescadero, this beach is popular with surfers, body boarders and fishermen. The rocky point at the north end of the beach produces some pretty decent waves given the right conditions. The same rocky area, close to the north point, also produces the best fishing. There used to be a pretty popular campground here though it's been closed for quite a while, although there are usually some folks camped on the beach here. There are several beachfront accommodations just a little south of the point. Access is by way of entrance road just south of the Pescadero Pemex station.

Playa Pescadero: Playa Pescadero is a beautiful long stretch of sand with great waves when the conditions are right. The beach is named after the small town of Pescadero, which is very close. The whales come in close to the beach here from December to April and surf fishing can be very good all along this beach. There is plenty of new development along here including the new high end resort of Rancho Pescadero. The beach is backed up by many new homes mixed among the chile fields and mango orchards that come very close to touching the Pacific. Access is by way of several entrance roads near the Pescadero Pemex station or Baja Beans.
There are miles and miles of beautiful pacific coast beaches to explore around Todos Santos, but equally beautiful Cerritos is unusual for several reasons. It's considered safe for swimming, has surfing for all…
