My name is Fiona. I am one of the the proud owners of this stunning home. My husband and children visited Mexico on a Cruise in 2004 and we all fell in love with Cabo San Lucas. A subsequent visit in 2007 confirmed our 'love for Cabo' and resulted in us committing to build 'our dream getaway' in this wonderful place. Even though the owners live in Australia we visit Cabo as often as possible and the long journey is well worth it. We hope to offer others the chance to experience our beautiful home and all that Cabo has to offer too.
Fiona Thiel purchased this house in 2010
We chose to buy land and build a home in Cabo San Lucas because of its beautiful, relaxing atmosphere. We 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.
Everything was perfect! The girls didn't want to leave! The pictures on the website do not do the home justice.
Also Victor the caterer was amazing, thank you for organising his services. He went above and beyond and even transported some of our excess luggage back to the airport!
We just loved Villa Kanga!
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.
My newly retired husband Tom and I have just arrived to this magnificent home and Cabo that we have the privilege of living for the next month. A dream come true for us. We have visited Cabo many times over the years and have often thought of buying a property but the years passed by. Our children and grandchildren convinced us to stay for an extended time so we searched for a home that would fill our need and wants. I have to say Villa Kanga certainly ticks all the boxes. The name in itself was catchy and then all made sense as Fiona the owner (who is a sweetheart) lives in Australia and explained the name it is a slant on their Australian Kangaroo. We were so impressed on how easy the booking process was and Fiona was constantly in contact with us, even in the early hours of the morning from Australia, making sure we were set. We were greeted at the airport by a beautiful young Mexican girl and her husband who instantly made us feel welcome.
Waiting at the house was our Concierge who was there to show us through and greet us with Margaritas.
Wow ,when we arrived Tom and I instantly thought the pictures have lied, its even more beautiful when you are actually here. The opening glass doors around the living and dining areas reach right onto the pool and create an indoor outdoor experience with plenty of space throughout the home for a large family. It was a huge decision on which master bedroom we would choose, they are equally as spacious as each other but decided to take the main living area bedroom and leave the front upstairs for when Marsha and Matt and the grandchildren arrive next week. It has another living area so the children can enjoy their own television and play games there.
The kitchen is just wonderful and the gas oven is easy to operate and so big. We feel very spoilt with the chef coming to cook for us tomorrow night for our celebration dinner with friends we have in Cabo and has promised us a Mexican spread we will remember.
The following morning we will all walk back into the Marina and have a breakfast at our favourite Solomons Landing. The other big bonus of Villa Kanga is the easy walk, we just weren't interested in climbing hills so this was perfect for us at our age.
I would highly recommend Villa Kanga for your next vacation and especially if you are wanting somewhere spacious, luxurious and close to town.
Thank you Fiona for allowing us the pleasure of enjoying your home. We will look after it like our own.
My newly retired husband and I booked an extended time in Cabo San Lucas and have just arrived to Villa Kanga where we intend to make this our home away from home for the next month. We were blown away with just how wonderful the home is, the pictures do not do it justice. The owner of the property Fiona is a sweetheart and helped make our decision an easy one when we were considering which part of Cabo was more suited to us. Being in our golden years, we wanted to be close to town so were pleased when Fiona gave us all the information we required and has put us in contact with people that are truly so helpful. We were picked up promptly from the airport with cold water supplied and escorted to the house. The security guards were friendly and we have already got to know them well. We feel very secure. Well can I say, this is all perfect as Tom and I can make our way into town within minutes, I am so pleased we did not decide to go further up the hill. We decided to take up Fiona's offer and have the home stocked with all our favourites prior to our arrival. Our son and daughter in law and 2 grandchildren will join us this week to help soak up some sun and enjoy this beautiful home with us. This is a great start to our time in Cabo. I cannot recommend Villa Kanga enough and I hope my review helps others in their search. Now excuse me while I go back to the pool :)
I and 4 of my best friends visited Villa Kanga for a 4day, 3 night guys trip to Cabo. This villa is located in Pedregal (think of Pedregal like the Beverly Hills of Cabo). We knew the pictures looked great online, but the home was even more impressive in person (if that's even possible)! Everyone loved having their own room w/ their own private bathroom. Villa Kanga is equipped with the best of everything (from the appliances, to the AMAZING pool w/ swim-up bar (wine/beer fridge, etc), built-ins in each bedroom and more).
We had such a positive experience from the time of booking through our departure. Listed below are a few special thanks:
* Heather (the property manager) did a nice job of providing the guidance and the initial house walk-through. She was always available throughout our trip to guide us and answer any questions
* Victor helped provide a great experience through the welcome reception (including margaritas, chips, salsa, quesadillas) and aligning the chair massages. He and his family (mother and brother Julio) were very responsive and willing to help w/ anything that we needed.
*** Special story: unfortunately, our car was towed on Friday night (we did not realize that we parked in a no-parking area up the street from El Squid Roe). As you can imagine, we were very concerned and did not know how/where to locate our car and rectify the situation. Victor scheduled for his brother, Julio, to meet us @ Villa Kanga on Saturday morning. Julio personally drove us to the impound lot, helped work w/ the transit authorities and the tow truck company to get our car released. This type of service & responsiveness went way above & beyond the call of duty (and we truly appreciated his help).
* Mercedes was also very friendly and did a very nice job cleaning the home and making it appear in tip-top condition.
Fiona, thanks for opening up your beautiful Villa for us to enjoy. We will definitely visit again! If you are reading this view and planning to visit Cabo, then stop reading this now and immediately make your reservation (before someone else books your slot). It is that good!!!
My in laws stayed in Villa Kanga 2 years ago and we vowed to return. The home presents as beautifully as it did back then and is a true credit to the Housekeepers and Managers. Once again we were treated like kings with a welcome package consisting of Salsa, Guacamole and cold Margaritas, lovingly prepared by Victor. Victor takes pride in making sure all guests meal requirements are catered for. Heather was on hand as always to make sure we were settled in. The weather in Cabo was true to form and shone every day for us. If anyone is looking for a beautiful place to stay in Cabo San Lucas look no further. The price is affordable and the location unbeatable. Villa Kanga and Fiona you have again exceeded expectations.
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.
