EL ENCANTO - ARTFUL LUXURY IN A RUSTIC SETTING BY THE SEA

Cabo Pulmo Villa Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

El Encanto is an artful, luxury view home with generous patios and private landscaped grounds. We offer three charming suites—ideal for families or multiple couples. Individual suites also available.

Art is a central theme, with folkart collected over years of Mexico travel, plus contemporary nature-inspired works, and whimsical touches that will surprise and delight. An eclectic mix of handcrafted furniture, traditional wood windows, and oriental carpets throughout convey an intimate timeless feel. Many people have said that it is like living in one of Diane's paintings.

Comfort-designed for southern Baja's famously mild climate, rooms spill out onto generous covered patios, sheltered from stiff winter nortes and open to the gentle breezes of summer. Private walled gardens put some of Baja's showiest natives on display, complemented by desert-adapted plants from throughout the world. Flowers attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies, plus birdbaths and feeders, keep the gardens lively!

Our home is close to beach, restaurants, dive center and other local services—all in easy walking distance, and our English speaking property managers will assure your best vacation ever.

This house is truly a labor of love. See more details and our availability calendar on our website (link below). We think you'll be delighted!

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Diane and Rob

About Rob Lerner

Rob and I designed El Encanto to be the kind of place we'd love to stay in with integrated indoor/outdoor living bringing us in contact with nature and full of art. We thought of the house and gardens as a giant art project. It was truly a labor of love and took us two years to build, working closely with local craftsmen.

What makes this villa unique

It is rare to live with so much beauty and art and nature, and El Encanto provides a truly unique vacation experience which is sure to be memorable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Six of us rented El Encanto to celebrate my daughter's 40th birthday in april. The house was amazing, comfortable, absolutely beautiful, full of art work and sculpture, hammocks, beautiful gardens, birds. The managers were totally accommodating and even baked a chocolate cake for the birthday girl! The library was full of good books and great movies. The top floor offers a fantastic view of the Sea, the town and the nearby mountains, and was a perfect place to observe the stars at night. Each of the three bedrooms offer unique amenities. It's a perfect place for relaxation, good food, diving, kayaking, fishing. We certainly plan on returning.

Perfect hideaway

Cabo Pulmo is our favorite vacation destination but before VRBO we had only been able to make day trips down there. El Encanto is my dream house. The entire place is surprising & wonderful but the kitchen & bathrooms were AMAZING! You will just wander around gasping until you've taken it all in. The A/C was nice but it ran off a generator and kicked off @ dawn. Although we didn't stay long enough to turn it on there is a TV & DVD player but no animated movies. The managers are pleasing and helpful~ they even sent a masseuse over to see if we were interested in a massage (60$ per hour), which we happily accepted while laying on her table outside one of the small casitas with the sun setting and the breeze blowing. The entire experience was lovely and we learned a valuable lesson, next time when we land at the airport in San Jose del Cabo we will be driving directly to El Encanto. Travel tip, go with plenty of cash & Tecate light. The stores, restaurants & dive shops in Cabo Pulmo are cash only (& it's a Corona/Modelo community) and the nearest bank is 50 miles away. We also have strong feelings for the Eco Adventures dive shop, the Castro brothers are friendly, informative & accommodating. I would also whole heartedly recommend Los Caballeros (not even a block away from El Encanto) I had the catch of the day and it was to die for~ they even fresh squeezed the juice for my cocktail (cup running over).

El Encanto Inn is truly an enchanted place created by true artists. Over the four days we stayed there, I continued to notice one exquisite little detail after another. The whole place is a real jewel. Your every want has been anticipated. I could have spent the whole visit just sitting in one or another of the several garden areas to watch the huge variety of birds and enjoy the spectacular gardens. Our only disappointment was the wind which blows intermittently along the coast from November until March so stay a week instead of four days. Do not miss the the waterfall; directions are included in the very informative notebook provided. We will return.
