4 Bedroom villa on the beach , 5.5 Baths, media room and gym(Sleeps 2-8)


The heavy wooden entry gates swing open to a tropical garden, offering fresh papaya and coconuts seasonally. A fountain splashes softly. The stone pathway leads to a castle rotunda, an open foyer breezeway with inlay marble wall-art grace the entry to your private paradise.

The design and décor of this beachfront villa is a stunning combination of Spanish Hacienda, Moorish Castle and Mediterranean style home. It is tasteful elegance throughout – creamy travertine floors, hand crafted wood furniture and four master suites each stunningly decorated in tile and stone, all with posh bathrooms, fine linens and private ocean-view balconies, three with walk-in closets and mini-refrigerators. The crowning royal suite has its own fireplace for that romantic glow. The great room features a natural gathering place for good friends and family, complete with gourmet kitchen, big screen TV, Sonos sound (indoors and out), computer system with wi-fi Internet and an abundance of comfortable built-in seating.

All four levels of this stunning property command breathtaking sea views. It is fewer than a dozen steps to the pristine beach embraced by the warmth of the Sea of Cortez . Gentle ocean breezes, breaching whales and surfing dolphins are your constant companions. You can swim in the sea if you like, or take a dip in the Jacuzzi that pours into the infinity pool. You can watch the sunset together from the spacious gazebo overlooking the beach and when at last darkness descends, the cozy fire-pit beckons with its luxurious built in seating, as the sky turns to a blanket of stars.

NOTE: We have added a new media room! 80" HDTV with 7.2 Stereo surround sound system, DISH TV, Apple TV and BlueRay. For your lounging comfort we also have 3 leather electric reclining rockers with USB ports and a large 133" couch which has a sofa bed (could be used as a bed #5 overflow). The Media Room also has an ensuite bathroom with sink, toilet and shower, in addition to A/C and two ceiling fans.

Upstairs from the new media room is a new gym. We currently have a treadmill, elliptical machine, rowing machine, recumbent bike, and free weights, along with TRX and other various mats and balls. There is also a TV with DVD, A/C, ceiling fans and mini fridge. There are no excuses now to not exercise while on vacation, unless you just don't want to.

About Mike and/or Judy

Living in the Los Angeles area, it's such a quick flight to Cabo. You can't go wrong.

Mike and/or Judy purchased this Villa in 2007

Why Mike and/or Judy chose San José del Cabo

Not too far from town and close to local surf spots and very private. No vendors hassling you on the beach. Hardly anyone on the beach.

What makes this Villa unique

Hanging out, relaxing, whale watching, and listening to the waves. Once again very private.

It's impeccably maintained and cleaned with above 5-star customer service and arrangements provided by Mike and Judy- on sight chef service, yoga sessions, massages, and grocery prestocking. Truly a trip of a lifetime! We can't wait to return and would not stay anywhere else. This property is perfectly laid out for families, couples, or a guy/girl friends get away! We saw the sunrise each morning. The beach was beautiful and not crowded, truly unforgettable!

I went with a couple of my friends and we were just amazed of how beautiful the home is. Waking up every morning to a beautiful view of the ocean. Each room faces the beach, who doesn't like that? And this place has a gym and movie theater! Crazy! My friends and I needed a little vacation to relax and this place satisfied our needs! I will DEFINITELY be staying at Castillo Escondido whenever I come down to Cabo!

When I think about having the privilege to stay at Castillo Escondido, I am nothing but speechless. The setting was as close to heaven on earth anyone can get. Mike and Judy made sure we had everything we needed and were MORE than accommodating. The housekeeper, Blanca could not have been any sweeter and helpful. We had an intimate group of 4 and every intention of doing excursions and exploring Cabo San Lucas. IMMEDIATELY, after we arrived to Castillo Escondido, it was a unanimous decision to stay at the villa for the entire duration of our trip. We wanted to soak in the absolute beauty and magic Castillo Escondido had to offer every precious vacation minute we had. Everything is at your fingertips at this incredible vacation spot. I will look no further when trying to book to Cabo. Mike and Judy, I cannot say thank you enough for everything and allowing us to have such an INCREDIBLE vacation that ultimately left us depressed to leave and think that it's over. Do not miss a chance to stay here. This place will change the way you think and re-frame your mindset on what truly is beautiful in life. We look to return many times throughout out future. :)

The home and setting is stunning. Mike and Judy were very helpful in assisting with anything we needed. We are looking forward to a return visit.

The photographs don't really do the home justice. Can you believe that? It is even more beautiful. The amenities are all first class and if whatever you need is not at your fingertips, our hosts will gladly provide for you.

                                                                      We were 6 adults and 2 children. Judy showed up to our door with pool toys, water wings, noodles, a baby pool, a pack N play and baby monitors! Blanca, the housekeeper provided us with fresh bath and beach towels daily and tidied up our rooms. I didn't think that we needed a maid, but it was certainly a luxury which I greatly appreciated. This is truly a very special home. I know you will enjoy it as much as we all did.
