About the property

Very Exclusive 4 Bedrooms, 4 1/2 Bath, Private Beach, 24 Hour Gated Security

Casa Cortez — Playa Del rey — Cabo San Lucas — Baja Del Sur — Mexico

This centrally located seaside VIP property, appropriately named Casa Cortez, resides within the exclusive premier community of Playa Del Rey. Perfectly situated between downtown Cabo San Lucas and the One & Only Palmilla, this gated community is hidden deep within the private and well secured neighborhood of Cabo Bello. Playa Del Rey offers double gated, 24 hour security and complete privacy. For just this reason, Casa Cortez is the former home of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Situated atop a cliff overlooking the gorgeous beach of Playa Del Rey, Casa Cortez provides spectacular views of the Sea of Cortez and the surrounding area. It is the perfect location for whale watching and taking in the beautiful sunrise & sunset. Just steps from the house is a short and well groomed sandy trail that leads you from cliff top to the secluded beach of Playa Del Rey. The beach remains mostly empty as the accessibility is very limited with no direct public access. Playa Del Rey gives you the privacy that you seek and desire. Make sure to bring your snorkel gear along and take advantage of the amazingly abundant marine life that this beach has to offer.

Casa Cortez is just minutes from Downtown Cabo San Lucas where you will find an abundance of vibrant nightlife and restaurants ranging from fine dining to local favorites. Head in the opposite direction, and explore the cultural 18th century town of San Jose Del Cabo. San Jose Del Cabo is filled with local artisan galleries, picturesque restaurants, and beautiful architecture. Venture there for a short day trip or simply a quiet night out for dinner.

Casa Cortez offers the ideal open indoor/outdoor spaces for guests in search of the therapeutic Mexican sun. Inside you will find beautiful limestone and exotic hardwoods throughout the entire 5100 sq. ft. house. Step outside onto the beautiful main terrace and enjoy gorgeous views of the Sea of Cortez while relaxing in and around the infinity pool & hot tub. If outdoor barbecuing is your passion, work your magic under the Palapa by the pool, where you will find everything you need for the perfect outdoor cooking experience. Step back inside and you will find a full chef’s kitchen with granite countertops, top rated appliances, and fully stocked cooking & service ware to entertain your family & friends. Casa Cortez also offers a personalized food & beverage prestocking option before you arrive so you can hit your holiday running. Additionally, there is a rooftop patio for sun & star gazing.

In addition to our dedicated house keeping staff, you will also enjoy three TVs with DVD players, an indoor/outdoor sound system, Wi-Fi, phone for local calls, and Dish network with music & movies. Everything you would expect from a home of your own.

Casa Cortez also boasts 4 separate & private bedroom suites, each with elegant ensuite baths. There is plenty of space for your family & friends to relax within the privacy of their own suite. Two suites offer Kingsize beds, One with a Queen size, and one with 2 twin beds. Each suite has zoned air-conditioning , private balconies, and ceiling fans. This villa can accommodate as many as 8 guests, and with fine linens and luxury bath amenities, everyone is assured a splendid nights rest.

This private & beautiful Villa offers relaxed Cabo luxury, where you can enjoy an experience comparable to a 5 star Boutique Hotel all within the comfort & privacy of your own residence. While some guests may choose to never leave the comfort of the Villa, don’t forget that you’re also in the one the premier locations on Earth for activities such as parasailing, kite surfing, sea kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking, world class fishing, and 5 star Golf.

Your Dream Vacation Awaits!!!

About Luke Stickney

Me, Luke Stickney on the right with other real estate investment partners of mine. My daughter Massiel is in the middle. We are eating lunch at Palmilla which is one of the finest resorts in Los Cabos, if not the best in all of Mexico. Life is good in Los Cabos, Life is great at Casa Cortez!

Why Luke Stickney chose Cabo San Lucas

We bought this property because of it exclusivity, privacy and security. There are a lot of homes in Cabo that are amazing, but this is the only double gated, VIP community in Los Cabos where you are truly left alone. This is what we were after, a place where our families could go and truly be away from it all. We wanted this exclusive feeling, semi private beach and security while being only 5 minutes from the downtown night life of Cabo San Lucas. We have access to everything, while being protected from it all. There are locals that don't even know this neighborhood exists and this is exactly what we wanted.

Gorgeous Oceanview Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this large oceanview home. The neighborhood is gated and very quiet. We spent a lot of time in the beautiful infinity pool looking at the ocean and watching the whales. The private beach was about a 2 minute walk and was gentle enough for swimming and snorkeling. Casa Bello is a great location and about a 10 minute drive to downtown Cabo. Mericarmen met us at the front door and was extremely helpful throughout our trip. This house is highly recommended!

So Sweet

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from Cabo. We stayed at Casa Cortez, it was beautiful! Absolutely perfect for my family, we have 7 plus a 4 month old. The home is laid out very nicely, each room had it's own bath. The back deck with pool and hot tub was great! We all felt very comfortable and at home. MariCarmen and Susanne were wonderful! MariCarmen was so helpful with recommendations and checked on our family daily! Susanne made sure the house was spotless! We are coming back for sure. I highly recommend Casa Cortez if you have large family and want to be pampered by 2 wonderful women!!

Not what I expected

  • 1 of 5

I felt this property was misrepresented and that it was ridiculously overpriced for what it was. The beach is a long walk from the house and cannot be seen from the house, so I could not let my younger children go unattended, even to play in the sand. The beach is just mediocre, very rocky for swimming and small, with access allowed from the nearby (not nice) hotel, so we did not even use it. The pool area is cute but the six of us could barely fit on the deck. And the jacuzzi did not work while we were there. Except for the master, there is no view from the bedrooms (they are almost in a basement). The owner is very inflexible (we were not allowed to have another family over for the day), but the chef that he arranged brought a staff of 3 and enough food to feed an army and charged a ridiculous amount of money.

On a positive note, the proximity to the Cape Hotel and to town is nice and the house was clean.
