We stayed at Pauline's for a week and loved our time there and in Todos Santos! We walked into town everyday, sometimes twice a day. It's about 15-20 minutes but completely manageable...and you pass the best local taco shop (Tadeo) in town on your way to old town! It is on a hill, but if you've walked a steep hill during your lifetime and survived, I think you can make if just fine. You can also take long beach hikes from the house via el Faro to el puntos lobos or even back into Todos Santos (past la poza lagoon) via the beach.
The home is cute, simple, clean and comfortable in the traditional Mexican style. It has not been heavily remodeled yet, so you'll find some crooked, dented and rusty things, but all very functional. The upstairs bedroom has it's own bathroom and is accessed by an outdoor staircase. There are 2 great old rocking chairs up on the balcony (in addition to a hammock) and we spent most of our time at home on the balcony looking over the town of Todos Santos.
Lots of extra bathroom soaps, lotions, aloe, etc are available as well as a stack of towels. Kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans, tea kettle, dishes. There is a drip coffee maker and grinder. Pauline also left us some food items in the fridge which was a great kickstart. Several 5 gallon jugs of purified drinking water in the home for us to use as well.
We used the beach umbrella for our outings and were so thankful to have it! We saw a boogie board and guitar as well but didn't need to use them but so nice the are available!
Wifi was strong and reliable. No TVs. We also had the hottest showers we've ever had in Latin America at this home! The neighborhood dogs are so nice and friendly. We even had a kitty cat friend here too. Bring your earplugs for the gallo nextdoor :)
We loved this home and felt very comfortable there for our week and we'd happily return. If you are looking to join a Mexican neighborhood for your stay, this place is perfect!!!
