I've been putting off writing this review because I don't know how exactly to express what is so wonderful about Villa Santa Cruz. It is much more than the sum of its parts -- and the parts (pool, spa, palapa, roof deck, balconies, beach, breakfasts) are pretty great in themselves... in fact, the whole experience is well-thought-out down to the smallest details. But there's something more, and that's the spirit, the generosity that Matt and Jessica bring to the place. I felt that they were truly present for us, and for the other guests. Their presiding ethos combined with magic of the landscape made our stay at Villa Santa Cruz memorable and meaningful.

Room Tip: No bad rooms in the Villa. We stayed in Laguna and were delighted by the ability to watch the sunris...

First 5 star rating I can remember giving in a while, but this place exceeds even that. Really a wonderful hidden getaway right on the beach. The hosts Matt and Jessica are beyond nice and so welcoming. They obviously take pride in the both the hotel that they have built as well as the service they provide. Only 4 units in the place, all upstairs corner rooms. We stayed in Agave, which provided wonderful views of the coast and water. They even put a twin bed in our room for our son, which was great. Grounds are beautifully landscaped. There is a pool with jacuzzi and hammock. There are also hammocks at the crows nest palapa on the beach. Sunset viewing from the crows nest, or the roof is spectacular. The roof even has a bar area and sand pit fireplace! With all that, I think the actual highlight are the breakfast meals cooked by Matt. No exaggeration, the dude is a total chef. He could easily cook for a restaurant - check out the photo of breakfast! Overall, a very relaxing, stress free place that cannot be recommended highly enough. Book and go!

Room Tip: Ballena and Agave rooms have the best ocean views. Beach chairs, umbrella and towells available to...

As a frequent visitor to Cabo, I was extremely impressed with the contrast of Todo Santos and in particular, Villa Santa Cruz.
Our stay in the villa was perfect from beginning to end. The property is warmly furnished with everything we needed for a stress free stay. The grounds are immaculate with multiple locations for relaxation and privacy. Whether you're near the sand, in the pool, on the rooftop deck (complete with fire pit and bar), or simply enjoying the many views by sitting on one of the balconies attacked to each suite, Villa Santa Cruz will meet your every expectation.
Upon arrival we were met by Jessica (property owner) who welcomed us into the property and gave all the info we would need for a trouble free stay. We also were met by the amazing aromas from the cooking of Laura, a chef that we hired and strongly recommend that all visitors consider hiring. Not only was every meal authentic and delicious, with great service, but Laura also stocked the house with food from a grocery list that I provided prior to our arrival.
In short, we did not want leave and are sure to return. Our visit was, Simply Wonderful. Thank you Jessica and Matt for providing such a wonderful experience!

We recently stayed at Villa Santa Cruz and it is on our list for top 3 places stayed at. This is saying a lot since we have traveled the world and have stayed at many amazing places. The view was pure magic and the villa a work of art.

Matt and Jessica are adorable and we especially loved Matts cooked breakfast every morning. We will definitely be back.

Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

All the best,
C&D

I'm still dreaming about Villa Santa Cruz! It was truly the highlight of our honeymoon in Baja. The entire villa is a work of art and the scenery is just breathtaking. You haven't lived until you've watched the sun set from a beachfront palapa and I know Villa Santa Cruz' is the best. I can't wait to come back for a relaxing girls trip or to celebrate an anniversary with my husband. Matt and Jessica are the ultimate hosts and have created a unique paradise that I'm so happy to have found. Mil gracias!

Room Tip: The ocean view rooms are a must!
