We live in Southern California with our two teenage children, married for 20+ years! We truly love going to Cabo and enjoy all the beauty it has to offer. Our kids enjoy going to ride quads on the beach, wave runners, the ziplines, stand up paddle (SUP), boogie boards and just relaxing in the sun. We love to travel and share our experiences with others who like the same!
Lori Tooker purchased this villa in 2004
My husband went to Cabo in 1994 & came back and told me I had to go - I resisted & said 'NO'. He assured me that it was safe and I would have a great time and if I did not like it I would never have to go back. So I gave in and we went in the month of October and after two hours, dinner on the marina, drinking margaritas with Jimmy Buffet playing in the background - this is way better than Hawaii!
Cabo is wonderful & has truly blessed our life and family. We just love everything - easy flights, easy to get around, less expensive than Hawaii, great weather, etc. When he told me he wanted to buy a home in Cabo I again said 'NO', but in 2004 we drove from Southern California with our kids (7 and 9) to Cabo. Again I was very reluctant, but went anyways. We vacationed the whole way down and then stayed in a timeshare once in Cabo. My husband then proceeded to drag us around to look at real estate to purchase - yuk! Well our very last day we found Tooker Villa La Jolla and again it was love at first sight. We bought it and put in the pool/spa/waterfall and other upgrades. We have since built another 5 bedroom villa right next door (Casa del Sol). I'm happy to say I have now been over 40+ times and can't wait to return every time to this very special place!
One of the unique benefits of our Villa is 5 of the bedrooms are very private suites with their own full bathroom. Everytime you come out of one of the bedrooms you are outside on the terrace. This makes the main living area and kitchen self contained and you can't hear any noise if people are up late or early in the kitchen. The one dream my husband has had is that guests rent both villas for family reunions, generation trips or wedding groups. Since they are side by side it makes if very convenient and we can sleep up to 22 people. We hope everyone enjoys our villas as much as we do!!!
We had such a great time at the Villa! It’s really a fabulous space. There’s a cool outdoor spiral staircase up to the second level with a common area upstairs balcony, and great private balconies off two of the bedrooms. We were celebrating my 30th birthday here, and it was a perfect spot for that. There were 8 people in this house and we had plenty of space. It easily could have fit 11-12 people. The 5 master suites are really awesome for everyone to have their own private area. We spent a lot of time at the pool, and had a private chef come to make meals for everyone at a very reasonable price. We also had her make extra leftover reheatable entrees for us so we didn’t have to worry about making much food at the house. Though we did fire up the grill the first and last nights to cook burgers. We headed down to Zippers a couple times which was great, but spent most of the trip in the pool and hottub!
We booked rooms at one of the posh resorts for my daughter's wedding, but because of the hurricane, the resort wasn't sure if they would be opened in time. We searched VRBO and found this great Villa. What caught our attention was all the separate rooms with their own bathroom! When we inquired about the availability, the owners were very prompt n responding. We were also pleased to find out that they owned the next door house as well. With a group that was rapidly growing in numbers, we were able to book the 2 places together. In total we had 17 people. I had emailed Lori several times and each time she responded immediately with helpful information. She has directions, recommendations and information about Cabo that she emails. It put our mind at ease to be able to communicate so easily. The majority of the rooms are upstairs and 2 rooms are downstairs. Grandma stayed in the room downstairs which she loved! Having a centralized kitchen was also a bonus. It was stocked with a lot of glasses, dishes, serving dishes, bowls and cooking utensils. You don't need to bring anything. If you need groceries, The Mega store, which carries everything, is about 2 driving minutes away. The property manager is also available, if needed. The bedrooms were well appointed. Each had a clean, extremely comfortable bed, a lot of closet space and large showers. Each room had its own air conditioner with a remote. Everyone loved the idea that they were in a room with a separate entry. The pool and spa were awesome. It was clean and refreshing. I loved the waterfall that could be heard throughout the Villa. Especially when you open all the sliders (all had screens). The owners supplied plenty of beach towels, laundry soap, hand soap and cleaning supplies. There is also a large refrigerator that has filtered water (safe to drink!) for all the beverages. You can also drink water from the spicket at the sink. Because we used the pool so much, the washer and dryer came in handy. You can park cars in the driveway which has a large gate that can be locked. If security is a concern, no need to worry. The Villa is surrounded by a large fence and small gate that can be locked up and the security guards are always driving around on mopeds. I have raved about the Villa to everyone who asked how our trip was. I couldn't have found a better place to stay. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when I go back to Cabo (unless it's next door)! Thank you Lori and Chris – you are the best!
We loved our stay here! We originally booked a hotel for friends and family for their stay in Cabo for our destination wedding but due to the hurricane, we were left hanging about whether our hotel would open in time. After a quick search on VRBO, I came across this villa and the other property owned by Lori and Chris. I reached out to Lori, and after an immediate reply, we decided this place would be perfect for our wedding weekend! This house is perfectly laid out for couples and groups. Downstairs includes a large suite with a full bath, a small room, laundry room, full bathroom, large kitchen with a bar, a living room and a dining room, with an open concept. Each of these areas have doors for the outside pool, providing shade and cool-ness for some and pool time for others. Upstairs houses the other 4 individual rooms, which are basically like little suites with a full attached bath. Each room has it's own unique charm. The pool was awesome and the spa really sealed the deal. Everyone enjoyed hanging out by the pool and bbq'ing. My friends and family were so impressed that several of them mentioned coming back again! Also, the house is located in what I would consider the "Beverly Hills" of Cabo/San Jose and felt extremely safe. The location is also super close to Mega and the airport, making pickup and drop off's a breeze. Lastly, I can't thank Lori and Chris enough for their generosity and friendliness. I've never rented a vacation home from a nicer family. They really went out of their way to make sure we were happy and answered all of our questions QUICKLY. Their property manager Manuel, is also wonderful and helped make sure our stay was perfect. If you're looking for a house in San Jose/Cabo, don't pass this one up!
We just loved Tooker Villa!! What a great place for ten friends/family to spend eleven days together. The setting was so wonderful there were several days we never left the Villa. We all absolutely would come back and recommend to all this VRBO! Due to the delay in Resort Recovery from Hurricane damage, our group of Friends/Family found the Tooker Villa as a possible alternative to our annual Cabo vacation. The property was a great fit for all; each bedroom was furnished with all the necessities for a comfortable stay. The Kitchen, dining and living room were well equipped and spacious for a group of ten adults to cook, mingle and relax. The outdoor space with Spa and Pool is just fabulous. Plenty of room again for 10 adults to catch some sun on the lounge chairs, or swim in the pool... or just relax. The neighborhood is quiet, the people are friendly and for those concerned with safety, not only locking the gates at night, but, seeing and hearing the security guards drive through at night kept all at ease. Two great restaurants are both a short walk away. Recommend a walk during the daytime to see Surf Beach, and some local cuisine. Visit San Jose and experience some shopping, art and if you like authentic “Tamales” visit the Plaza Square in San Jose. We recommend you take advantage of the "Catered" meal option at least once. The authentic meal is heavenly and prepared by the sweetest lady. Thursday evening take a cab to San Jose and enjoy the Art Deco District, visit the galleries, sip some wine and watch all the activities in the Plaza Square. Shopping can easily be done at one of three grocery stores a short cab ride away. The Pool Maintenance came in twice during our 11 days to check and clean the Spa/Pool. The Yard Maintenance came in once and groomed an already great yard and planters. The Maid came in once and cleaned the home and laundered towels. The Tooker Villa owners went above and beyond to prepare the Villa for our vacation. Multiple emails back and forth with our questions and quick detailed answers from the owners were extremely helpful.
My husband and I just spent a week at this villa with our four grown children, spouses, and grandchildren and it was by far the best family vacation we have ever taken. The house is quite spacious which allowed each adult couple to have their own separate room and bath. Our grandchildren are fairly young so they all stayed in the sixth bedroom which is off the kitchen/living room area. The setup of this house was perfect for a large group or extended family like ours. The listing description and photos very accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities.
We cooked a number of our meals at the house which was made very easy as the kitchen is well stocked with appliances, cooking utensils, plates, cups, etc. Shopping for groceries was not a problem either as there is a MEGA store about five minutes away by car and it has everything you could need.
When we were not at the beach or other excursion, we thoroughly enjoyed the pool / hot tub area which is kept very clean by the maintenance man that came twice while we were there. The owner also provided some necessities such as laundry soap, dishwasher soap, hand soap, cleaning supplies, toilet paper, paper towels, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas.
I would definitely recommend this villa if staying in San Jose del Cabo. From the very beginning, the villa owner was very accommodating in answering any and all questions that I had about the house and amenities. Her replies to my emails or texts were very timely and helpful. She provided us information about local restaurants, rental cars, surfing locations, good beaches for the children, etc. which helped us in planning our trip. Thank you Lori for all your help and for the wonderful week that my husband and I had with our children and grandchildren!
The Tooker Villa in La Jolla was a perfect place for our family to vacation. The home is spacious, clean and well appointed. Located in a private, gated community, we felt safe and sound during our stay.
The caretakers and chefs, Manuel and Sandy took great care of us. Truly lovely people.
Their food is top notch!
At their recommendation, we drove out to Todos Santos - a very cute town. Had a midday meal at Todos Santos Caffe at Sandy's suggestion and we highly recommend it as well. A fun half day excursion. Stopped at Shut up Franks for a round of beers on the way into this small town. Lots of memorabilia on the walls: old James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Rat Pack era, boxing, etc. Lots of cute shops to visit in this quaint town.
Went to San Jose for the art walk on Thursday and met some of the local artists: Metin Berketli, wow what a personality-his art was featured on Friends and catapulted his career, lots of celebs with whom he has taken photographs, fun to look those at, as well as the art. Invited us in from the street for a glass of wine. Ivan Guadarrama-my fav and hope to buy one of his pieces soon. Fell in love with the Talavera pottery! San Jose is a darling little town-much better than San Lucas. So much to look at there that we came back twice to see more.
We tried twice to visit Flora Farms and missed out each time. Mondays they are closed and Friday when we tried again, we're closed for Adam Levine's wedding. Wow!
All the locals said that summer came early and it was unseasonably warm, El
Niño and all . . . 65%+ humidity, so thankful you have AC units in each
The home was perfect for all 9 of us. We will definitely let all our friends
and colleagues know that if they are looking for a great vacation in Los
Cabos to contact the you.
All in all a very restful and fun vacation!
