We (Richard & Kathy Bowles, and Jeff & Melinda Dieden) live in Lafayette, California where we enjoy the diversity, geography and weather of the San Francisco East Bay. We originally met at our children's school over 15 years ago, and now we travel, golf, attend Cal football games, and share other activities together.
Kathy purchased this house in 2006
After carefully exploring many areas and cities in Mexico, we decided that Cabo San Lucas was the best location for our vacation home. The private Pedregal gated community where our villa is located is the most scenic, safe and charming place in Cabo. We believe Cabo is the best overall vacation spot in Mexico for several reasons: the flights to Cabo from the US and Canada are relatively short (2 hours from LA, 3 hours from SF, 4 1/2 hours from Chicago, etc.), Cabo is clean and safe with a low crime rate, the weather is fantastic for most of the year, there are many outdoor activities to enjoy (great beaches, boating, sportfishing, golf, scuba and snorkel diving, off-road motorbike and AWD riding, and many more), the food is excellent and diverse, etc.
Our villa has over 1800 sq. feet of outdoor space on 3 different levels, offering both sun and shade and lots of chaise lounges, tables and chairs. It is one of the few Pedregal villas with a rooftop patio, which offers many different views, including the ocean. We also have lower patios surrounding our heated pool on one level and the jacuzzi on the bedroom level.
We completed a kitchen remodel in 2008 with all new stainless steel appliances, wooden cabinetry and granite countertops. Villa Sonrisa is one of the best bargains in Pedregal, as there is ample sleeping and living space for the 3 bedrooms. Many guests comment that they appreciate the excellent location of Villa Sonrisa - just a few minutes from the town of Cabo, but shielded from the late-night noise of the nightclubs and bars. We know you will enjoy our home as much as we do.
