We have travelled all over the world but still like coming back to the Montecristo to rest and be spoiled!
Bill purchased this villa in 2006
Cabo San Lucas is a great tourist town and the Montecristo offers a unique and affordable luxury experience in a sun drenched location.
The Montecristo has 2 adjacent sister properties plus 2 more connected by a free 10 minute shuttle on the Bay of Cortez side of Cabo. It's easy to enjoy the Pacific Ocean views of cruise ships and fishing boats, sunsets, 3 miles of private beaches, and the privacy of your own villa.
We had a fantastic week at the villas. Both our concierge, Edgardo, and our housekeeper Iris were helpful and friendly and took care of all of our needs. The views from our villa were amazing and the house was wonderful. We spent much of the week swimming/wading poolside while taking in views of the Pacific ocean. We made our own food for much of the week after a stop at Costco and Walmart, and the kitchen and barbeque worked well for our needs (there were seven of us in all).
As for the other Pueblo Bonita amenities, access to the beach at the Rose and Blanco resorts was nice for a change of pace. We went to the Sunset Beach resort pool, with a swim up bar, which was nice, but we ultimately preferred hanging out at our own pool at the villa. The ladies all seemed happy with their massages and facials from the resorts spa and I was happy with the state of the gyms (standard setup and kept very clean).
I would definitely recommend this for families and groups. It would also be nice for couples, but I would guess that two or three people would leave a lot of unused space.
As for the owners of this listing, Carol was very helpful, friendly and responsive and I would be happy to rent from her again.
Our review, to our delight, is a reflection of “Slice of Heaven” review! The Villa and the view are just gorgeous. We planned a destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas and wanted something amazing but of course were budget conscious. In doing the research we came across several Villa’s listed on VROB and when contacting Carol to inquire, she provided generous insight and specifics from the start. Primarily due to Carol’s assistance and follow up, our wedding went off without a hitch. We had the ceremony and reception in the Villa and anything that was needed prior/during and after, the concierge provided. The Cibola Bar & Grill customize our catering menu and dinner request.. did such an amazing job and don’t for a second let the “Bar & Grill” part of the name fool you in thinking typical bar food. Each Villa is provided with a personal butler in which ours went above and beyond our expectations, along with the maid service. The infinity pool and hot tub is as exactly as you see, marvelous with breath taking views. The resort, with their many different facets of service, was very eager to please. Having done the research along with Carol’s insight in place to go and things to do, we recommend renting a car from Hertz (not Budget! they charge a bogus insurance fee) to explore and see all the magnificent things that Cabo has to offer. We also recommend shopping the Mega store as it has more options in food/item choices and has a fantastic bakery/fish/seafood market. We also found that La Eurpoea liquor store has more of an extensive selection of liquor and wines and spuriously comparable to the prices at Costco to boot. Needless to say, we can’t wait to return to Cabo San Lucsa and Montecristo!
This Villa is absolutely divine. From A-Z this property is for the well traveled with the most discriminating eye. For 7 days you will indulge in the best of service, luxury and breath taking views. We traveled with our travel group and comfortably accommodated 8 travelers. We especially enjoyed the private infinity pool and hot tub coupled with top shelf concierge service. You can look at other Montecristo Villas but one thing you won't get is the attention to detail Carol provides from the very beginning. Carol provides insight, details and How to's around your travels to Cabo. Carol is genuinely interested in insuring your Cabo vacation is no less than fantastic. I've used VRBO for my previous travels and Carol is by far the most gracious and engaging VRBO owner. Pueblo Bonito is the destination location to kick up your heels and enjoy Baja California's finest.
We stayed at Montecristo with three other couples and can't wait to go back. The villa was perfect with an amazing view! We could wake up every morning and enjoy our own personal infinity pool that overlooks the ocean. It was outstanding. The staff was great. The maids kept the villa very clean. The concierge took care of any issues we had. We had no worries the entire week we were there and simply enjoyed a nice relaxing vacation!
The owners of this villa were so wonderful to work with. We booked about 6 months in advance and every month or so I would get a nice email with information about Cabo including tips and excursions and restaurants to check out. They never wanted you to feel like they had forgotten about you. We plan on going back in 2014 and wouldn't think about staying anywhere else.
Thank you for making our trip one we will never forget.
