My wife and I purchased the Villa Costa Brava (built in 1993) just before our son was born 13 years ago. Today our family loves to invite friends to come and enjoy our Baja beach house at Costa Brava. We often get up before the sun rises and take long walks on the beach. Our favorite beach walks include watching turtles hatch, ospreys hunt, pelicans soar, and whales migrate along the Sea of Cortez. In terms of activities our favorites include fishing, swimming and snorkeling at Chileno and Santa Maria Bays, hiking and canyon zip lines, swimming with dolphins, kayaking around the arch and spending time in and on around our pool. We take great pride in keeping our house in excellent condition and provide a quality service which we know that your group will appreciate. Bienvenido!
Don Hirschaut purchased this villa in 1999
We love Cabo and purchased our house as it is off the beaten track yet just a 10 minute drive to either town. We enjoy our privacy and walks on the beach.
Amazing Sea of Cortez views from every room! Lounging on the hammock and around the pool. Watching whales swim by from the pool deck.
We stayed at Costa Brava in January to escape the winter and spend a long weekend with friends. None of us had been to Cabo before and (admittedly) didn't have a ton of time nor the energy to do extensive planning for the trip. The staff at ESSV was outstanding - they arranged a boat trip with La Islita (a highlight of the trip) and dinner reservations, as well as provided great advice on renting a car. The concierge in Cabo (Rodolfo) was extremely helpful. The house itself was more than we could ever had asked for. The transfer from the airport was ready when we arrived, friendly, and professional. The margaritas, salsa, and ceviche were the perfect welcome to Cabo, along with the stunning views from the house. Having the pool at hot tub right at the house were perfect, and the beach was less than a minute's walk down the hill. Since we were in the corridor and away from the resorts, it was like having a private beach the entire weekend. The house was in excellent condition and had everything you could ever want in it. The value for the price paid was outstanding. Our entire group consensus was that this is the best vacation we've ever taken. We've already started making plans to return next year and insist on staying at the same property. I cannot recommend the location and property highly enough. Our stay was fantastic.
What an amazing week we just spent in Cabo! Villa Costa Brava exceeded all of our expectations and we couldn't have had a better week. The villa is located between San Jose and San Lucas and we really enjoyed not being around the hustle and bustle of San Lucas. We did rent a car for the week and it really made the trip for us. We were able to come and go as we please and do many different things on our own time. Back to the house, extremely clean and no issues with any pests or bugs of any kind. Very modern and updated inside, the best part was the king bed in the master suite, in fact my wife wants to buy the same bed when we get home! Pool and beach are both incredible, finally able to swim in the ocean the last day of our stay, was a little rough prior to that. I saw many complaints about the walk to the beach, but it is nothing to worry about, great cardio! If you want to swim in the ocean Chileno Bay is very close by and we swam and snorkeled twice during our stay. The grill is a very nice option for cooking as well, we did dinner at the house 4 nights and it allowed us to make hamburgers and chicken which is a nice change when you are tired of eating chips and salsa! I could go on and on, but if you are looking for a great stay, this is def the place for you!
To my surprise the place was clean, well maintained, secure. Excellent place to stay, learn the bus route or rent a car otherwise you will pay to much for cabs since it's about 10 miles to san lucas.
We were 4 adults seeking a quiet, relaxing beach vacation and we got just that! We chose Costa Brava for the location and the views. We spent 9 days at this beautiful home and absolutely loved it! The home is very clean, very well equipped and the view is spectacular!! Loved breakfasts on the patio and night swims under the stars. Location is perfect! It is right in the middle on the corridor between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo. About 15 minutess in either direction. Any groceries you need can easily be picked up at the Mega in San Jose or the Walmart in Cabo. A rental car is a must and driving around the area and both towns is a breeze. Day or night. The beach is a quick walk and is gorgeous!!! Keep in mind that this is not a swimmable beach all year long. It was not safe in August but this made absolutely no difference to us at all and went down several times to soak up the beauty! There are two beautiful swim safe beaches 5 mins away (Chileno and Maria). We just can't say enough about this home! WE LOVE IT and cannot wait to get back! The staff was exceptional from start to finish! Amber at CaboVillas did an amazing job of organizing our trip. She took care of the reservation, the arrival, the rental car, answering all our questions, making recommendations etc. She did it all and was very friendly. Shuttle driver from airport was great. Arrived at the villa to find our rental car waiting in the driveway. The door swings open and Manager, Rodolfo, greets us with a warm welcome! He gave us the tour and was on his way. We had absolutely no issues but called him with a couple questions and he was always immediately available. Very friendly! He will help set up fun things to do too! The rental car rep finished up our rental right on site and was wonderful. We drove ourselves to the airport and returned it with ease on our day of departure. Zumiko comes in three times during the week to change linens and clean if needed. She was so very sweet! Thank you one and all! To sum it up, Costa Brava is a must visit! Much thanks to the owners for sharing your beautiful home! :)
We spent two wonderful weeks at the Villa Costa Brava. The property is exquisite and very well maintained. House looked after by Zumiko - pool and garden by attentive and very pleasant fellows. We had several meals at restaurants which were excellent and the location was good for either San Jose del Cabo or Cabo San Lucas. Rodolfo, the Manager was quick to respond to any request. The noise from the construction site opposite the house was a bit much, but, apart from that everything was perfect.
Watch for whales and rays pool side while sipping a margarita. Relaxing! Road noise is not a big deal. The booking process with Nik was great, at first. Then there were several mix ups (the invoices they send with payment conf. are rather confusing).
TransCabo picks you up at the airport (but charges $30 to stop on the way to the villa for 30 minutes at the Mega store, this should be free for as much as the villa costs)
Air conditioning units in every room are nice
Abundance of books & games for your use
Local and US phone calls are free
Proximity to the beach is a plus & the beach has very few/no people at any given time, it's virtually YOUR beach. Take your flip-flops. The granite is sharp while exploring the tide pool nooks and crannies.
The sunrises are heavenly and not to miss
Open floor plan makes for cooking and dining while visiting a pleasure, but the advertised 3000 sq ft must include exterior areas, b/c it isn't 3000 living space
Speakers are great to hook up to an iPod in the villa. It would be much more convenient, however, to have outdoor speakers and an iPod dock. Inexpensive to do and would be a HUGE plus!
Pool MAKES the vacation, but the "heated" Jacuzzi isn't exactly warm enough to enjoy in the evening.
In-villa chefs are amazing- A MUST DO! We had the Surf & Turf dinner and had them do the Drop Off service, which includes them still preparing everything, they just don't stay through the meal. It is OUT OF THIS WORLD!
The 'Welcome' margaritas and chips/guac/pico were AMAZING! Having a propane grill to BBQ is handy. We had plenty of propane to cook, just make sure you burn the ants off the grill first, they're pretty quick to jump on the leftovers (as they would be anywhere). Ants aren't excessive, by any means.
We had enough 5 gallon water jugs for our stay, which was nice. Made our own ice cubes using that water because the cubes from the fridge smelled funny. Had maintenance issues upon checking out, which were ignored by Rodolfo and never addressed (toilet in master "runs" & the safe in guest room beeps & was locked)
No another options for dining nearby as Marbella, next door, is closed. This also means there is no sundries shop next door and you must cross the highway to get any sort of BASIC amenities at the Super Mercado.
The walk to the beach is steep.
The maid service is excessive, for sure. They don't really do much but stand around texting while waiting for bed sheets to wash and dry. It should be optional.
My family and I very much enjoyed our stay at Costa Brava. It was exactly what I had pictured in my minds eye. The representative who assisted us through out our stay was prompt , thorough and very friendly. I like the location being approx. 1/2 on the corridor. Everything was clean, maid service and pool service was great. The beach is lovely to walk on. The hotel next door, Marbella Suites is a fantastic Mexican run, intimate hotel with great food and WONDERFUL service if you do not feel like cooking.I felt Costa Brava was very decent value and would stay again !
You'll find plenty of activities to fill your time in Los Cabos. Cruises, tours, and shopping are just a few of the available options. Or maybe you'd rather just spend the day on the beach with a cool drink and a good book. Whatever you have in mind for your vacation, you'll find it in Los Cabos, including whale watching, diving, golf, sport fishing and great nightlife. Los Cabos is home to the two cities of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo. Cabo San Lucas is an energetic city, with a bustling marina and the iconic stone arch at Land's End. San José del Cabo offers traditional charm, historic architecture and wonderful restaurants. Between the two is the Corridor area, lined with beautiful beaches.
