If you are looking for Cabo Wabo tequila shots and dancing on table tops to piercing heavy metal music you've come too far north. Instead, Villa Santa Cruz is a hidden gem celebrating peace and quiet, sun, surf and sand. It is a natural wonder.
Owners/hosts, Jessica and Matt, have created an oasis in the desert here with years of care and attention to every detail. With towering mountains and cacti forested hillsides on the horizon this gorgeous property is a delight just to be around.
The two villas on the property built by Matt are traditional in style without being cloyingly manufactured. You will marvel in myriad details from the glassware in the full kitchens to the various vintage collections in each room. The metal and glass staircase leading to the pyramid sunroof is a marvel. And the rooftop was our yoga studio each morning and our fire pit observatory hangout every night. It was hard to go to bed.
Each room inside the villas is open to stunning views and light. The beds were so comfortable we didn't want to leave. And the ensuites each have their own personality. Showering and watching out the window for whales out at sea is one of the many great stories we brought back from our stay.
This truly is the best of both worlds. We had the option to cook for ourselves, but also took the car 15 minutes to Todos Santos for a lovely meal out. Perfect.
And above all of this I have to mention the pool. Ahhh, the pool.
Hurry and book this getaway before everyone else finds out about it.

Matt and Jessica have created a true paradise at Villa Santa Cruz. It is beautiful, comfortable, quiet, and perfect in every way. Matt is an amazing breakfast chef. His egg dishes are so yummy. The surroundings are peaceful and expansive. The two-story palapa is the best place to witness the sunset. Be sure to sit on the rooftop near the fire pit at nighttime. The stars are amazing. Cannot say enough good about this place! Please treat yourself. :) Oh, the coffee in the morning on the private patio is simply decadent.

Room Tip: The best suite is the Avage Delux. But they're all stellar!

Two wonderful hosts, incredible staff, delicious food, idyllic setting, beautiful beach, authentic food, and a secluded villa all within 15 minutes of downtown Todos Santos. We didn’t know what to expect or what we were going to find, but we were blown away by it all. We have had the good fortune of traveling the world and staying in incredible places but this adventure was really unique. Matt and Jessica gave us a chance to spend a weekend living their vision of an Mexican Villla on the beach. The attention to detail that went into building this dream of theirs is evident in every finish. We awoke each morning to a tray of hot coffee outside of our door, and the smell of breakfast being prepared downstairs. Two chairs and a small table on the balcony, a cup of coffee and stunning views of the beach and mountains. We didn’t want to leave. Outside of the Villa is a heated pool, hot tub (solar) , hammock, misting fans to keep you cool, and a tree house on the beach to watch the passing whales or stunning sunsets. We didn’t have much time to take advantage of all that Todos Santos and Villa Santa Cruz had to offer but next time we will be hiking, surfing, swimming with sea lions and whale sharks and drinking their special tequila aged in a barrel on the first floor. Thank you Matt and Jessica we loved every moment.

Amazing! A Long way from Boston, Ma. Would go back tomorrow, so worth the trip. We got to VSC because we were attending a destination wedding. The owners Matt and Jessica are absolute sweethearts. It is off the beaten path and we got lost trying to find it GPS not working properly. No problem though, called Matt and he came and met us so we could follow him back to the Villa. Above and beyond! One of the most relaxing places we have ever been. Beautiful views! Delicious breakfasts! At night candles lit throughout! Amazing rooftop terrace! Already planning a return visit. This is one place you do not want to miss,

Room Tip: The suites facing the ocean you can hear the waves

Private beach front villa, gorgeous accommodations, great service - the perfect vacation spot. If your looking for a family vacation, wedding or a group of your best friends, this is it! The pool is lovely with a swim up bar and a nice jacuzzi. The palapa on the beach is an adults play area, very inviting with a 360 degree view of the area. We are definitely booking a trip again in the near future. I would recommend also asking about a chef to arrange authentic mexican meals.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely
