Overview

San José del Cabo Villa Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

ADDED AMENITIES! SEE BELOW.

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, Bose surround 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 palapa 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 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 an elliptical machine, rowing machine, recumbent bike, and free weights, TV with DVD, A/C, ceiling fans and mini fridge. We will soon be adding a treadmill, spin bike and punching bag.

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 Baja California Sur

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.

Exceeded our expectations! Returning soon.

  • 5 of 5

Our family can't begin to express our delight with Castillo Escondito! If you want quality family time, this is your best choice.

The villa and grounds are much more stunning than the pictures. We visited

with our two sons and daughter in law for 8 days.

The property was immaculate and the very best of care is given with each little detail of your

needs by Mike and Judy. They even are so adept at hospitality, they anticipated our needs!

From dinners prepared by Hector and staff, to fishing and in town venues, each recommendation and

reservation is made with pleasing you as a guest! The recommendations led to catching a striped marlin and rooster fish.

I would whole-heartedly recommend the Villa and the staff. This is the PERFECT retreat for anyone wanting a personal relaxing and beautiful Cabo experience!

A must experience for your family.

Magical. Look No Further!

  • 5 of 5

Wow. Let me just say, it is my first day back home from Castillo Escondido and the post-vacation blues is lingering. 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. :)

Everything was Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was everything we had hoped for and more, thanks to our hosts, Judy and Mike. 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.

Would not stay anywhere else in San Jose

  • 5 of 5

My wife and several of our closest friends just returned and I cannot imagine a more perfect stay in Los Cabos. The house is stunning, the photos don't even do it justice. The four master bedrooms that all have their own bathroom is very unique and hard to find in San Jose and was absolutely perfect. We went with three couples and a friend and the layout was great. There is so much space that it is easy for a large number of people to hang out and never feel cramped, but everyone has their own private place to retire to and relax. The home is wired throughout with speakers and has an ipod/android connection that can be adjusted throughout zones all over the estate. The bedrooms have their own Bose stereos with iPod docks. There is a volleyball court on the beach right outside. I could go on and on. The property managers (a married American couple who couldn't be nicer) are on site in a detached residence and this turned out to be the best thing about this property. You would never notice they were there unless you need something and they usually think of it before you even ask! It was such a great service to have two people to answer any and all questions we had about the surrounding area and services. They pre-stocked the house with groceries before we arrived, arranged transportation, you name it. They could not have been more of a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire process. This was easily the best vacation rental trip we've ever taken and will be going back the second we can.
