Oasis by the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Casa TAZ with two other couples and couldn’t have enjoyed ourselves more. The house was well-maintained and very charming – despite the large size, there seemed to be a warm attention to detail around every corner. The property manager, Andres, was super helpful in welcoming us and walking us through the ins and outs of the house. He even helped us organize in-house massages and a private dinner at the Casa. And oh the view! Nothing more relaxing than watching the sun rise over the ocean – other than lounging in the infinity edge pool with a margarita a few hours later! Also important to note that while there are waves, the beach is swimmable and only steps away.

While in its own gated community, Casa TAZ is easily accessible to both San Jose and Cabo San Lucas. We spent most of time in San Jose, enjoying the art district, and also had memorable meals at nearby Nik San (about 5 minutes away) and Flora Farms (a must for any first time visitor). We rented a car and getting around was quite easy.

Casa TAZ provided our group the perfect getaway and we hope to be back to spoil ourselves again in the near future – thank you to the Collings’ for sharing a little piece of paradise with us!

Fantastic villa for 3 couples

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Casa Taz. A group of us (3 couples) wanted to stay at a house that had views and was close enough to the beach. Casa Taz had amazing space with lovely traditional Mexican decor with absolutely stunning views of the ocean from every room. Walk down the stairs and you're right at the beach which allowed us to take morning strolls down to the One & Only Palmilla resort.

The rooms and kitchen were spacious but I think my favorite feature was the infinity pool that allowed us to swim around and relax.

If we wanted to go to town (either San Jose or Los Cabo), it was really easy to reach Andres, the property manager, who arranged the taxi rides for us. He also cooked a fantastic Mexican meal for us one night which was honestly better than some of the food out in town.

Highly recommend staying at Casa Taz for a relaxing couples' getaway!

SO GLAD WE TRIED CASA TAZ!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with the photos on their website, but when we saw this place in person... we were love struck! Like a personal palace but amazingly comfortable!

Right away I plugged my Iphone into the amazing global stereo system, openned a beer, got in the sublime infinity pool, and went into max relaxation mode. Andres, the caretaker, was like our personal (on call) concierge the whole time. He deliverred groceries, scheduled taxi pickups, made excellent reccommendations for restaurants, and best of all, cooked a gourmet meal for us that was just amazing!

And the beach! There were 3 couples in our group and as many walks down to the beach we made, we never saw anyone else down there! Huge, beautiful private beach. So fun!

Have to mention, 180 degree panoramic view from the house of Sea of Cortez. Whales right out front on our first day, then they left, but Im told they are commonly there.

We loved Casa Taz!!! THANK YOU!!!

Our Stay At Casa Taz

  • 5 of 5

One hour after my arrival at Casa Taz, I was relaxing in the infinity pool, looking down at the aqua marine Sea of Cortez, sipping a margarita, wondering how it could get any better.

The spacious master suites, the beautifully appointed kitchen plus the outdoor kitchen, the manicured grounds and veranda, all make for a luxurious and relaxing vacation .

The only thing that could beat coming back would be to never leave.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were lucky to book Casa Taz for our honeymoon earlier this year. It may seem a little extravagant to rent a five-bedroom house for just the two of us, but we were looking for comfortable accommodations, great service and privacy from the touristy hubbub of the city centers. However, we still wanted the ability to “go into town” on a whim. Located an easy 15 minutes from the heart of Cabos and just 10 minutes away from San Jose, Casa Taz was the perfect home away from home for us to celebrate the start of our new lives together. The house was beautifully decorated, clean and well-maintained.

Andres, the property manager, easily and effortlessly coordinated a romantic evening for us on one of the five nights we stayed at Casa Taz. We enjoyed massages by our own personal masseuses, which was followed by an exquisitely prepared meal by a private chef. The ceviche appetizer and sautéed garlic shrimp alone are reasons enough for another visit.

We enjoyed our leisure time by lounging by the pool, dipping into the hot tub and simply observing the gorgeous view of the Sea of Cortez from the deck. My wife and I also enjoyed cooking on our own by shopping for groceries at Mega and whipping up authentic Mexican cuisines in Casa Taz’s spacious and well-equipped kitchen. All the amenities we needed to prepare a wonderful meal and have fun were on hand.

On more active days, my wife and I ventured into town for boat rides, sightseeing tours and shopping in the heart of Cabos San Lucas. We had rented a car for the week and enjoyed the short scenic rides into town. On the occasions we opted not to drive, Andres kindly arranged for a taxi service to pick us up at our doorstep.

We recommend Casa Taz to anyone who is looking for the perfect combination of comfort, privacy and convenience in their Mexican vacation. Now that we’ve experienced the beauty and relaxation of Casa Taz, we look forward to bringing our family and friends with us for another stay the next time we visit Cabos San Lucas.

Wonderful home, wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Casa TAZ provided the ultimate get-away-from-it-all experience for our group. Being a stone’s throw away from such a beautiful private beach yet able to gaze miles down the breathtaking Sea of Cortez coastline…great combo! The house was immaculately maintained - the warm Mexican themes and colorful, if not whimsical, artwork made us feel like we were truly sharing in the home of another. We especially enjoyed lying out by the beautifully-tiled infinity edge pool and playing ping-pong in the outdoor BBQ/game area. Andres, the property manager was fantastic. Attended to our every need…the Yucatan-inspired dinner he cooked for us the last night was delicious! We loved the accessibility to Palmilla and Campestre golf courses and the whale watching jet-ski tour was a once-in-a-life-time experience. Our week at Casa TAZ was exactly what we needed and we hope to be back again soon!

Los Cabos International Airport
Nearest Beach
100 Metres

At the southern tip of Mexico’s magnificent peninsula lies Los Cabos, a resort mecca blessed with a perfect climate and an average year-round temperature of 78 degrees F. It is here the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortés come together, creating a rich marine eco-system unrivaled in diversity and beauty. Fishing, diving, surfing, kayaking, etc.

Los Cabos collectively refers to two picturesque towns, Cabo San Lucas at the southern tip and San José del Cabo twenty miles to the northeast, separated by a resort corridor that boasts luxurious world-class hotels and golf resorts. Just ten minutes from Los Cabos International airport lies the tranquil colonial town of San José del Cabo. Cabo San Lucas, known for its white sand beaches and 'El Arco', the perfect arch at the southernmost tip of the magnificent Baja Peninsula, offers a great nightlife full of excellent restaurants and nightclubs. In contrast, San José del Cabo is quaint and colorful with a colonial plaza and great shopping.

Other Activities: Wave runners, zip lines
