About Diane Varney
We designed El Encanto to reflect our love of nature and art, with integrated living spaces that open onto covered patios and gardens, making the most of the mild climate. The home features original artwork by Diane and other favorite artists, plus heaps of traditional handicrafts collected over years of Mexico travel. We conceived of the home and gardens as a giant art project. It was truly a labor of love manifested over two years, working closely with local craftsmen.
Diane Varney purchased this Villa in 1993
Why Diane Varney chose Cabo Pulmo
We discovered Cabo Pulmo in January of 1993, a sleepy Mexican fishing village and well-kept secret among a handful of adventurous gringo fishermen and watersport enthusiasts. When we purchased our property later that year, we aspired to a simpler life, closer to nature and away from the frenetic pace of city living. Two years later, we were able to sell our business in California and move to Mexico to realize our dream!
What makes this Villa unique
If you love nature, if you love art, if you love the tropics, if you love the water, if you love Mexico, you will be in heaven at El Encanto; with details that will surprise and delight you for the entire duration of your stay! A vacation experience you're sure to cherish. Enjoy!

Amazing artful casa and beautiful location!
The pictures don't do this art justice. One of the most amazing places we have ever stayed in. The house and gardens are art at its best. Cabo pulmo is a magical location. A self sustaining community of wonderful people. If you are looking for miles of beaches to yourself, waking up to the sound of songbirds, and miles of wilderness to wander, this is the place for you. This is the best way to experience the Baja. Cabo is great for catching the majority of the tourist to keep this place magical for years to come. Thanks!
Thank you so much for being our guests and for such a lovely review. We're SO glad that you enjoyed our home so much. We tried to design it to be the kind of place we'd love to stay in. We have the same taste! We hope you'll recommend El Encanto to your friends, and we hope, like many guests, you'll return again.

SO MANY STARS!
Beautiful, clean, so many lovely touches that made this place feel like home. The "town" is heaven on earth. Henri was so helpful. Cant wait to come back!
So glad you enjoyed yourselves and enjoyed watching the stars. For your next trip, try to time it for a full moon. There is nothing like watching the moon rise from the sea--big and orange from the Vista Suite or the beach. Except watching the sun rise from the sea every morning. We are at El Encanto and I just experienced that this morning. Thank you so much for being our guests!
Peaceful with Stunning Decoration
This is a wonderful place to relax and reconnect to nature. We truly enjoyed the starry nights and the solitude of the town. Thank you!
Exceptional Vacation Site
I chose to vacation in Cabo Pulmo so that I could relax in a quiet setting, take morning walks through the desert, snorkel and dive on the reefs. (The water was 85F.) Certainly I got all of what I expected...and it's what I didn't expect and yet received...that made this vacation wonderful. The Vista Suite is a work of art. I realized I had stumbled into an artist's and intellectual's realm. Literally, it was like being inside the head of an artist and seeing the world through their eyes. Every wall has fascinating original art and is painted in dramatic color. The furniture is hand painted. All details (door hinges, bottle openers, window frames and even the toilet paper holders) are hand crafted, intentional and stunning in their detail. Really interesting--thought provoking books filled bookcases and are piled here and there to enjoy. The grounds are enclosed by tall colorful walls that create a (yes) sacred and private space that is filled with gardens of tended native plants, birds, lizards and butterflies. With evening came dark--real dark. I hadn't seen real dark forever and I embraced it each night from the open roof terrace where I was lucky enough to greet the full moon and marvel at the Milky Way and shooting stars. And although it took a little while to comprehend, I also realized that along with the art, books, comfy bed, and outrageous desert, that quiet was also included. Real Quiet. I slept deeply every night; I was inspired by the natural beauty of the desert and sea; I was stimulated by the art and books; I relaxed and at the same time became rejuvenated. The Vista was large enough for four of us to ramble about and have plenty of space. If any of us experienced any inconveniences I don't recall them. I'm a business man who generally finds it difficult to unplug...accept for here. I recommend this experience to revitalize and connect with art, architecture, nature, dark and quiet. I''ll return to the Vista Suite. Thank you.
Thank you SO much for being our guests and for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We hope you'll return again and tell your friends about El Encanto.
