Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Esmeralda was great! Maria and Alilat made our stay great by meeting us when we arrived and booking taxis/excursions/dinner reservations on a moments notice whenever we asked. We also had them pre-stock the house with groceries and a couple pack-n-plays which was extremely helpful. We had 3 families with 7 adults and 4 children so we needed a big place with 5 bedrooms and this place was plenty big enough. The decor and finishings were very nice and the view is incredible! We cooked at the house most nights but there also is a fun little restaurant within walking distance (Buzzards) that we went to a few times for breakfast and dinner. The road is a bit rough getting to and from the house, but it is worth the drive! We would definitely come here again whether it's to this 5 bedroom house or one of the other smaller houses/condos on the property.

Wonderful San Jose!

  • 4 of 5

The property is beautful. Great view, quiet and nicely decorated. Three recommendations: have better written instructions on how to get music outside and how to use the tv. We were very frustrated with this.

More towels are needed in the bathroom. Two towels and two washcloths per bathroom is not enough.

Two more chaise loungers outside would be nice.

Need to make sure the bed in the casita is a queen. It says that on-line, but not sure it is.

Yes, I would recommend the property. Maria is very helpful!

Since the house is farther out from the main highway, we visited Flora Farms for breakfast (loved it) and ate at Buzzard's which is down the street from the gated community where the house is located.

Walking the beach was lovely!

The Art Walk on Thursday night was not as good as it is when we travel to San Jose in January.

Definitely coming back!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property! We had a great time from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The house, the beach and the area was just what we were looking for. The house was very tastefully decorated, and even though was on the “second row” from the beach, it was just 1 minute away from it, and had amazing ocean views. Me and my family were coming from France escaping form the cold weather to find this amazing villa, looking at whales pass by all day long. Alilat was very helpful and since it was our first time in Mexico, she set up everything for us, from private transportation services from the airport to the villa, to spa services at the pool patio in the house. I highly recommend you having the chef services, and for all the amazing dishes we got, the prices were really reasonable, even cheaper than going to a restaurant. We did horseback riding and the boys rented some ATV’s. For what you get, this house is definitely the best value in all Cabo!, we are definitely coming back!

San José del Cabo it’s a beautiful and charming town located just 6 miles from El Encanto de la Laguna, with many good restaurants, shops and world class galleries.

The Marina in San Jose del Cabo is open with a beautiful design and construction. Its full operation unfolds as more boats utilize the facility for activities like sportfishing, whale watching or simply cruising the sparkling sea.

Beginning just north of San José where El Encanto de la Laguna is located, the East Cape stretches nearly a hundred miles along the Sea of Cortés eastward and northward past Los Barriles. This beautiful stretch of desert coastline is still mostly undeveloped, however the towns of Los Barriles and Buena Vista are thriving fishing and tourist communities offering lodging and local cuisine.The East Cape is also the windsurfing center of Los Cabos, as well as being home to the more remote Cabo Pulmo which draws divers to the most northerly coral reef in the Pacific.
