About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Casa Oceano is nestled on the grounds of one of the most luxurious resorts in the world, the One and Only Palmilla, where one steps back into Old Mexico with whitewashed buildings, red tile roofs, lush green landscaping covered with red and yellow hibiscus and bougainvillea. Only a 20-minute drive from Los Cabos International Airport.

Casa Oceano has a breathtaking, 180-degree, panoramic vista of the Sea of Cortez and the twinkling night lights of Ciudad San Jose del Cabo. Beautifully appointed, with floor-to-ceiling views from all rooms, red tile floors, and tastefully selected furnishings.

The Palmilla grounds are located on what the locals refer to as "the corridor" between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. This ideal setting allows for both relaxation and exploration. A ten-minute drive to charming and picturesque San Jose del Cabo with numerous excellent and diverse restaurants or a 30-minute drive to action-packed Cabo San Lucas with its bustling nightlife. For the more adventurous, a 90-minute drive to Todos Santos, one of Baja's few colonial towns, where the siesta is still taken seriously.

As I walked into the villa, I was speechless! The well appointed room was appreciated, however, the view of the Sea of Cortez was breathtaking. Mornings with coffee overlooking the water, long walks on the beach, and memorable family time in a high quality yet comfortable home. Rosy, the property manager was very helpful, even bringing a new tank of gas for the grill at dinner time. The maid staff was excellent! I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting the beauty of the baja without being in the over populated Cabo San Lucas area. We had a great fishing trip and loved coming back to cook in a well stocked kitchen. The location is convenient to both CSL and San Jose del Cabo. Thank you for opening your home to us!

Beautiful Palmilla Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented Casa Oceano and we had an outstanding experience. The villa is spacious and beautifully decorated. The cookware was updated which we very much appreciated. The housekeepers did an excellent job cleaning the villa daily. The location of the Casa Oceano is perfect because we love the restaurants in San Jose del Cabo and we enjoy going to the beach at Palmilla. We highly recommend this villa and hope to rent it again in the near future.

Quiet Oasis in Los Cabos

  • 5 of 5

My family was desperate for a relaxing week away from the madness of life. Casa Oceano is the perfect spot for people looking to escape the chaos. It's a perfect place for private time without others around. We didn't see many people during our stay and loved staying in the private home and on the private balcony. There is a pool very nearby and we never saw another soul when we ventured to the heated waters.

We went to dinner one night at the neighboring One and Only Palmilla resort and enjoyed the food and cocktails, although the meal was very expensive.

We took advantage of the wonderful property manager, Rosy's, offer to pick up groceries before we arrived and spent most of our meals cooking at the home. The house has all the amenities you need to prepare meals.

We didn't rent a car initially and quickly learned that the home will seem isolated if you don't have transportation. We got a rental car on the second day and drove around to nearby San Jose Del Cabo and further to Cabo San Lucas.

We have a two year old boy and the home was more than enough for the three of us. We could've had another couple in the home easily.

The pictures don't do justice to the home and believe me, I've lived on the road for work and can be quite snobby about where I stay. Everything was immaculate and the bed was so comfortable.

Mari, thank you for opening your home.

We would love to return one day.

Glorious views; lovely furnishings; helpful manager; a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed twice at Casa Oceano, a week each stay. Each time our visit ended, we consulted our calendars to see when we might return. If it isn't paradise, it'll do until the real one comes along.

Here, in no particular order, are the best features of the property:

1) Rosie, the in-town property manager: incredibly helpful both prior to and during the trip. Don't be shy about asking her advice. And take advantage of her willingness to stock up the refrigerator prior to your arrival (a small fee is involved--as well as the cost of the food, of course--but it's worth many times the price.

2) The view! The view! The view! Breakfast on the deck, overlooking the bay, might just last you the entire day, because why in the world would you want to leave?

3) The bedrooms and baths--very large, well-appointed, comfortable beds (and firm, for those of us with troublesome backs).

4) The kitchen: well organized, good supplies, nicely opens to the central living room/dining room.

5) Living room/dining room: incredibly bright and airy during the day (although during the day, why wouldn't you want to be on the deck?); the dining table is inviting and comfortable.

6) The pool: about a minute's walk from the house, also with a lovely view and comfortable outdoor furniture; we were alone there every time we went (this nice feature may, of course, be different if you visit at an extremely popular time, although we were there each time in January, which was fairly busy).

7) The maid staff--prompt, thorough, and although we had pitifully little Spanish and they had equally little English, things were communicated. Be sure to tip them--they earn it!

8) The Chopers (owners): Extremely helpful; they obviously love this home, and it reflects that love.

9) The town of San Jose: why would anyone would go West, towards Cabo San Lucas? San Jose is a lovely town to walk around in, with very good dining and (dare I say it?) shopping.

Thanks to the Chopers for making our fantastic holiday possible.

After spending about 30 h...

  • 5 of 5

After spending about 30 hours plus, searching the internet for the perfect place to stay in the Los Cabos area for myself and two girlfriends, I was fortunate enough to find your gorgeous villa, Casa Oceano. I came to Los Cabos to attend the three day wedding celebration of a dear friend at The One and Only Palmilla Resort. So, at approximately 2,000 sq. ft. of space, plus a large balcony, Casa Oceano was a fabulous value! Many times I have had experiences where the photos look great, and then when you see the actual lodging, you end up feeling disappointed. This was the exact opposite experience, myself and my two friends were absolutely delighted with the beauty of the villa, and the pristine privacy it provided us there. Everything about Casa Oceano was first class! The décor was absolutely classy and lovely. The floor plan was well thought out with the two master suites at opposite ends of the villa, thereby providing additional privacy for your renters. The mattress in my queen bedroom was also most comfortable. It's very hard for me to find a mattress I'm happy with when traveling. The mattress was excellent, plush, yet firm. I was truly impressed with the lovely upscale linens, and extra soft plush towels. I absolutely loved the magnificent bedspread on the queen bed; since it is a fine cotton with a tone on tone pattern, it was hard to see just how beautiful it is in the photos. The large balcony, complete with a gas grill, and sliders from the living room, and the two master suites, offered a wonderful unobstructed view of the Sea of Cortez and the city of San Jose Del Cabo. The location was great. And the private pool (open only to villa guests) was just a short walk from the villa. The three days of wedding events took place at various locations on the grounds of the resort; and all locations were an easy walk from the villa. In fact, I think the villa was actually located closer to most of the events, than some of the rooms at The One and Only. I must commend you too, on your great website; the pictures are terrific. For a detail oriented person such as myself, you can never have too many pictures on a website or too much information. The links associated with your website were also most helpful. Mari, thank you so much for all of your kind assistance in answering my questions about your villa and the surrounding area. I can’t begin to say enough wonderful things about your gorgeous villa; it was a privilege to stay there, and a v
