I booked a last minute trip to Baja and found Wendy & Bob's Las Palmas Tropicales online a few days before I left. I chose their place because of the location - it's literally right in front of one of Baja's best surf breaks, and the price - it was super reasonable for a solo traveler.
I stayed in the Casa del Mar for about 2 weeks. It was truly amazing! Fully-stocked kitchen, comfy bed, palapa roof, and super clean and nice. The place also offered an outdoor shower, covered storage area where you can stash your boards, outdoor grilling area and a porch from where you can check the surf or watch the sunset.
Wendy and Bob went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and always had enough water and towels throughout my stay. They even scheduled a massage for me in town that was truly amazing.
The casitas are nestled right on the beach, and are super private. It's a quiet, relaxing space. It's a 5 min drive to Pescadero (I recommend the Sandbar for dinner/drinks or Baja Beans for coffee) and a 10 min drive to Todos Santos (where there's tons of shops and restaurants - I recommend Barajas for some great fish tacos).
As a young woman, and solo traveler, I found it was a very safe place (nearly everyone I met was either American or spoke English). There's a lot of other travelers down there as well, so if you're looking to meet some new people it's a great place for that too.
I am definitely coming back to Wendy & Bob's and highly recommend their place.
