We were there in September and it was one of our best memories for 2013. We will never forget Harry and Sharon. They made sure you were comfortable and the stars from the pool at night were incredible. The ocean is so close and we will return for sure for one of those great breakfasts. Mike n Paula

Friends of friends recommended we stay at Serendipity, and we're glad we did! It was a wonderful experience all around. This hotel has gorgeous views to the Pacific ocean, with just a short walk to the beach. The lush tropical gardens and palm trees feel like paradise. The pool and hot tub were a nice bonus. And the delicious breakfast made-to-order, included in the cost of the stay, was a real treat. Sharon and Harry and their dogs were gracious hosts. We definitely plan to return.

Note that it is about a 10-minute drive into Todo Santos, so you can't just walk to town.

My wife and I spent a weekend here in mid September 2013. It honestly felt like we were at home. Both Harry and Sharon are very hospitable, and friendly. The villa itself is very clean and neat. The breakfasts can't be beat! We had a wonderful view of the ocean from our balcony. It is the perfect place to relax, and enjoy the beautiful birds which we saw there. The property sits well back from the beach and is perfectly designed. Our hosts were helpful in picking restaurants
that were exactly what we were looking for. We are looking forward to a return visit next year.

Room Tip: upper level rooms offer the best views.

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of staying at the Serendipity for a week in March 2013. What a FABULOUS experience! Sharon and Harry were the best hosts one could possibly imagine. Sharon recommended "must do" experiences which we did and had the time of our lives. The stay includes breakfast which is prepared by Patricia. Upon ordering her Huevos Racheros con Salsa Roja, she said to me, "Buena Suerte!" I showed her! The greatest concentration of "caliente" I have experienced and I could not get enough (surprising still, I lost weight on this trip). It was so peaceful at the Hotel Serendipity that I realized all of my aches and pains I was feeling in the States disappeared when I was here. It is nice falling asleep to only the sound of waves crashing on the shore, which was a brief five minute walk.

There are a lot of nice places to stay in the Todos Santos area, but Serendipity suited us perfectly. They are close to the beach but not on the beach, so the waves don't pound your ears. They are close to town, but not in town, which is pretty noisy and dusty. They are just north of town and a drawback has been finding them among all the dirt roads. However, the main road north is being paved to within two blocks of them this spring. Sharon and Harry are giving, loving, trusting people and their small B&B gave us just the right feeling. Breakfasts by the pool were wonderful. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Tell Sharon what you like and she'll make a great choice for you.

We go to Todos Santos every year, and had been staying in another B and B that was beautiful, but quite pricey. We found Serendipity on the Internet and thought we'd give it a try. Well, to our pleasant surprise, it was just beautiful, and had every amenity we'd want for a fraction of the price the other place we stayed at cost. Sharon and Harry Morris, expats, are the owners. Their hospitality, stories about how they got started, and the 4course made to order breakfast, has gotten us back for the third year! They have 10 rooms in different configurations, including 2 casitas, each with 2 baths for families or " girls' " weekends. As a bonus, the road to get there is now almost totally paved!

Room Tip: Sharon is very accommodating. Explain what you are looking for and she will try to make it happen fo...

Serendipity is a jewel. Stayed here with my wife and two small children for 4 nights, and wish it could have been longer. I like the location better than in-town Todos Santos because you have your own piece of heaven to come home to at night. The only downside it that you have to drive home at night after dinner so it limits the tequila tasting you can do in town (though I imagine cabs are pretty cheap as the drive is only 5 minutes). Yes part of the drive is on a dirt road and the rest is a little bumpy, but not a big deal, except for the first time as directions confusing (especially at night). The beach is a short walk away (yes, it is not a swimable beach, but none of the Todos Santos hotel beaches are swimable...you have to drive to Cerritos (10 minutes south of TS) for a dip in the Pacific.)

Sharon and Harry are welcoming, as is their staff. The breakfast is the highlight and just about everything is very tasty (though they need to work on their Chilaquiles recipe). Rooms are nicely decored and comfortable - my only suggestion would be to do a more thorough cleaning each day (but this is a B&B, not a hotel, so don't expect the total hotel-type service - they do make beds and empty trash)
