My name is Fiona and I am the designer and the legal owner of this stunning home. In 2004 my family fell in love with Cabo San Lucas whilst visiting on a cruise ship. A further visit in 2007 confirmed our 'love for Cabo' and resulted in my husband and I committing to build 'our dream getaway' in this wonderful place. Even though we live in Australia we visit Cabo as often as possible and the long journey is well worth it. We have made some wonderful friends in Cabo that have helped make us fee like this is a second home. We hope to offer others the chance to experience our beautiful home and all that Cabo has to offer too.
Sandra Luxury Escape Rentals purchased this house in 2010
I chose to buy land and build a home in Cabo San Lucas because of its beautiful, relaxing atmosphere. My family found the people in Cabo delightful and always smiling. The close proximity is ideal for vacationers coming from the United States. Unlike many homes in Pedregal our home has the benefit of being an easy walk into town without climbing massive hills,
One of the many benefits of our home is that it is an easy walk to town , no need for a car. The home is modern , yet keeping a relaxed Mexican style. The home has been designed to accommodate a large family or a group, giving different areas to relax in , thus giving each other a feeling of some privacy. The pool is huge and ideal for swimming laps in, it is also heated in winter, which can be a bonus during those cooler months. It has a wonderful resort feel swim up bar making it a great place to sit, relax and enjoy a cool Margharita.
The home is in a great spot, so close to everything that you need. Julio and Samia were amazing in providing us with welcome drinks, massages and could not have done more for us during our stay. Not being first timers to Cabo we had time to enjoy everything the house has to offer. The upstairs patio of a night time was a highlight. The pool and swim up bar certainly got plenty of use too. Thanks to Fiona for her hospitality too.
Cannot speak highly enough of the kindness shown by everyone involved. From our initial enquiry through to our departure, everything was taken care of. Transport from the airport was with the lovely Melani, who provided us with beer and water. The drive from the airport is no longer than 40 minutes and takes in some amazing scenery along the ocean. Samia and Victor were waiting for us where we were pampered with neck and shoulder massages and margaritas. Perfect start to any vacation! We were shown through the villa, which is very well appointed. Its design has been carefully thought out. I must say the focal point is the open spaces in the living room and the hideaway sliders that help open it out to the pool. The pool was nicely heated for us. Pool towels are provided. I guess the big winner in addition is the location, just a short walk and you are at Cabo's finest. Bars are a plenty with some super restaurants. One trip alone could not ever have a chance of experiencing them all. We truly loved our time at Villa Kanga. Big shout out to Fiona for allowing us to stay. We look forward to our next trip in Cabo and at Villa Kanga .
Our family have just returned from what I can say was one of the most enjoyable vacations I can remember. The Villa Kanga home was spectacular and the staff simply amazing. Nothing was too much trouble from organizing a pre shop to organizing dinner reservations. Samia was a sweetheart as was Melani.
Fiona certainly is on a winner with her team who look after her home so well, and considering Fiona lives all the way down under in Australia. Most of our days were out and about enjoying the beaches and terrific restaurants that are very close by. No need for a hire car. One night Victor spoilt us with his culinary chef skills and we even hired a mariachi band by the pool. It was very memorable.
I would highly recommend this home for those who want luxury , without the price tag and the convenience of being able to walk everywhere
We will definitely return
Where do I begin... Villa Kanga is an amazing place to spend a week. The house was even more beautiful than the pictures. Everything we did associated with Villa Kanga we did without a hitch. Booking was very easy with Fiona. She clearly takes pride in everything she does. Communicates clearly and always in a timely manner. Offers all services including names and phones numbers/e-mails to everything we where looking for. Transportations was waiting for us at the airport (refreshments included, nice touch). Melani was waiting at the house for our arrival. We had set up a welcome package with drinks/appetizers. Brief massages where also available when we arrived. It was almost overwhelming as we couldn't sit down and enjoy our drinks because of our excitement at how beautiful the house was.
We worked with Victor to have a Chef in the 1st evening (Dec 31st) as it was my son"s 28th Bday. Dinner was Delis. Victor topped it off with a Birthday cake for my Son. Food was amazing. Would highly recommend working with Victor and treating your selves to a dinner prepared at the house. I encourage a nice tip for this service, it was well worth it.
We also worked with Victor to set up an excursion/transportation on one of the days. Everyone loved it. I also had Victor stock the house with some adult bev's that where available upon arrival. Victor again did a great job taking care of everything.
The gal that cleaned the house did a great time. Remember to leave her a nice tip, she is worth it.
The pool was everything we had hoped for. We did however have it heated everyday. We are glad we did otherwise it would have been to cold. One day we thought maybe the heater had been turned off? We called Melani and within hours the heat was back to a great temp.
Distance to the Marina was exactly that, 5 minutes. Super easy, safe walk. We loved how close it was as the young adults traveling with us went into town every evening for the night life. They said its the best night life they have every seen on vacation. So of course they were very happy with their experience. A couple small convenience store close so getting more water, etc was very easy.
The people Fiona works with are amazing. We were treated so well. I would recommend Villa Kanga. Trust me you will not be dissappointed.
What an incredible week we had at Villa Kanga. Our flight was delayed by an hour . Melani was waiting at the airport with cold drinks and a big smile. We arrived to the house to be greeted by Samia who had kindly organised a complimentary neck and shoulder massage for us all. Our bags were brought in and we sat back and relaxed. A swim in the pool was in order as was the delicious cocktails prepared by Victor.
The whole team that Fiona has put together were very attentive and became like an extended family to us.
Nothing was too much trouble.
The home is large with lots of space on all 3 levels. Great location. We are already planning our rerurn !
This was our first time to Cabo and I must admit we were a little reluctant in renting a private home, something we have not done before. However we were not disappointed and even felt we received more personalized service than had we stayed at a resort. When we saw Villa Kanga on the website we were excited and made contact with its owner Fiona. Once we had booked Fiona made sure any and all queries were answered immediately. Pretty impressive given she lives in Australia!. We were greeted by Melani at the airport and made to feel very special for the next few days. Samia made sure all our needs were met from pre shopping for us, restaurant booking, filling the freezer daily with ice, to organizing Victor the chef for our final night. Our housekeeper did not speak English so it was fun trying to understand each other, however Samia was only a phone call away to translate. The Villa is luxurious and spacious with large bedrooms and bathrooms. The pool area is the main focal point and the swim up bar was fantastic. The pictures don't speak for the villa it is truly wonderful. We certainly will book Villa Kanga again and hopefully stay longer next time. A big thank you to team Villa Kanga !
-The home itself is beautiful and perfectly located for an easy walk to downtown Cabo. The house is located in the hills of Pedregal and if it was any higher on the hill it would've been a much more difficult walk; especially, for the older guests in our group. So that was a huge plus! The rooms are beautiful and overall we loved being here during our stay.
-Fiona and Samia were extremely responsive the entire time during our trip. If we asked for something (and they could accommodate us) they had no issues making it happen; however, they're not mind readers and if you didn't ask for something in advance then you would have to wait. For example, our freezer ran out of ice one day but I forgot to mention it until the following day, so we had to go buy our own. Not a big deal by any means but something to think about if you're expecting daily service without asking.
-Upon arrival, we were informed about a few "issues" with the house (I'll detail those below) and to make up for the inconvenience we were set up with a private dinner at the house to be cooked by Victor and Hugo. The meal was AMAZING and definitely a highlight of the trip! Can't recommend this service enough!
-When we arrived we were told the heater in the pool was broken. It was early May so the water was probably about 70 degrees at the time, not unbearable, but the pool was definitely not as usable as we would've liked and it was certainly unusable at night.
-We were also informed that the fire pit upstairs wasn't working due to a gas leak and while we certainly wouldn't want to risk it, it was still unfortunate that we couldn't use such a cool feature to the house.
-There's no A/C in the main living area. There's absolutely A/C in the bedrooms but due to the large windows they removed the central air. It gets EXTREMELY windy at night so you have to close the doors, which can make the house stuffy at night.
-There was a very bad sewer smell in the upstairs bedroom. I wasn't informed about this issue until late in the trip, so Fiona was never given a chance to fix it, but the problem was so bad at some points that my father couldn't sleep!
-There were several other small issues that we weren't notified about until we arrived, so if I were to do it all over again I'd just be sure to ask about any broken items prior to booking.
Overall, we had a great time at the property and would recommend it to friends.
Villa Kanga has the advantage of being an easy walk to popular restaurants and the Marina. No need for a car or to seat it out walking the hills of Pedregal to town. Walk to the marina take a glass bottom boat to the Arch and Lovers Beach, walk to swim with the Dolphins center.
