“Relax and enjoy!”
Reviewed 26 February 2011

My wife and I spent three days at Flora del Mar in early February. The casita we stayed in was very nice and roomy with a cool tropical ambience and a great front porch with spectacular views of the ocean and oasis-like surroundings. Sunsets were spectacular! The grounds are nice and inviting, like a like a super relaxing private retreat. The dogs and cats are all friendly and entertaining and we enjoyed their company. Marilyn couldn't be more warm, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed watching the sunset with a margarita with her on her roof deck . We can't wait to return.
Todos Santos is a cool little town with lots of nice restaurants and galleries. Flora del Mar is a couple of miles down a pretty rough road, but it is well worth the trip! Just make sure to get good directions.

Marilyn Martin is an amazing host starting off with good directions and advice about driving. Her breakfasts are feasts for anyone with varying dietary needs and beautifully healthy. Marilyn is a great resource on local adventures, beaches, and town experiences. She is warm, friendly and always helpful. The beach is so close; accessible and safe at all times of day or night. One morning we set our alarms so we would wake up in the dark to see the moon set over the ocean followed by the sun rising. She seems to attract amiable travels who like to join in day trips and dinners in town. I would recommend Flora del Mar, also, because the accommodations would suit a family, couple or single person. I plan to return.

We initially booked a room for 3 days - but we liked it so much that we kept extending and stayed a total of 7 nights. Friends joined us for 4 nights. The location is wonderful with sunsets to die for, the waves crashing, and fabulous breakfasts. Marilyn is a very warm hostess and made interesting vegetarian breakfasts - we especially loved her banana roll-ups. The animals were a joy - and we would have taken little Diva home with us if we could have. We definitely recommend this place - and plan to visit again. One of the most relaxing places we have been - and gorgeous beach. Denise and Greg

I would happily recommend Flora del Mar. We were hosted by a woman named Nina that was a friend of the owner. She was wonderful and really went out of her way to make our trip special while we were there. There are miles of perfect beach just 200 yards from the property. The drive to the town of Todos Santos is about 7 minutes. Todos Santos is a small,friendly town that is a great jumping off point for exploring the southern tip of the Baja. The road down to Flora del Mar is a little rough in some areas but we were able to navigate it fine (and slow) in the Nissan Tilda that we rented (mid size economy car). They have three dogs that are great and always happy to see you and walk on the beach.

Flora del Mar B&B is a gem in the midst of a quiet, absolutely gorgeous beachside location. We stayed for four days with our two boys, and found ourselves wishing we had cruised thru Cabo and spent ten days at Flora del Mar instead!
Upon arriving, we were greeted by five friendly rescue dogs and the proprietor, Marilyn. We're big dog lovers, and all of the dogs were very friendly with our small children, while also respecting our space and retreating when we wanted them to. Our casita was perfect for the four of us. A ultra-comfy king bed and twin bed/couches, furnished kitchen, patio opening to the ocean and rooftop patio with views of the ocean and gorgeous sunsets. Upon arrival, Marilyn pulled out a high chair, pak-n-play, tricycle and toys for the boys to enjoy. Perfect.
We had the beach completely to ourselves - all day long. It was incredible. The surf is not swimmable - waves are much too strong, but the beach extends for miles, gentle breezes blow and pelicans fly overhead in flocks. A beach umbrella, blanket, a few sand toys and Corona or two were all we needed. We frequented the beach for early morning strolls with the dogs, afternoons in the sun and picnic sunsets.
Marilyn makes terrific breakfast meals and welcomes visitors into her home in a warm, caring way. The pool and dining areas are carefree and relaxing - including hammock, and the tennis courts are in perfect condition.
The trip to the B&B down the bumpy road was maybe the only minor drawback we could possibly think of, but after navigating it once or twice - and becoming aware of which potholes were where, we had no problem - and felt the drive to town and back was well worth it for a stay at Flora del Mar. And do drive to town for the Chile Rellenos at Miguel's. Delicious!
All thumbs up! We'll be back!
