Jerry and Judy Parmenter purchased this villa in 2004

Why Jerry and Judy Parmenter chose Cabo San Lucas

Coming to Cabo since mid-70's to enjoy beautiful weather, whale watching, sailing, snorkeling, sunset cruises, fishing, hiking, golfing and entertainment. Wanted both the convenience and amenities of a 5-star Resort with quiet retreat while enjoying a panoramic view of the ocean, relax in our own private infinity pool and villa with friends and family once retired. Our Montecristo villa at Pueblo Bonito Resort gives us all these and more. Guests have free use of three other Pueblo Bonito sister resort facilities (Pacifica, Rose, Los Cabos) in Cabo and 25% discount at Quivira Resort Golf Course all with charging privileges directly to our Villa.

What makes this villa unique

In 2004 only two Montecristo Estates top row villas were being built nestled into the mountainous ridge high above the main Pueblo Bonito Sunset Resort. We were lucky to have the 'pick-of-the-litter' and chose Villa #11--the most private villa on the end of top row, at ABSOLUTELY the highest point in the Estates/Resort including a KILLER panoramic view of the Sea of Cortez, Pacific Ocean & entire Resort. Downtown Cabo is 10-mins by car. Free Resort shuttles available within Resort and to downtown Cabo. Villa includes daily maid & personal concierge services, 24/7 Medical services & Daily kid activities.

Our goal: Answer questions & provide whatever assistance to our guests to make their stay a pleasant & memorable experience. Provide a 3-page Guest Information Sheet: Resort information; Transportation between San Jose del Cabo (SJD) airport and Resort (unless you rent a car); Concierge Services telephone number and email address; Where to buy groceries/beverages w/directions; Golf courses & making advanced reservations on-line; Favorite restaurants, day trips and other activities. We hope we have met these needs with our past guests. We invite you to review our Guest Comments. Thank you for considering our Villa for your future stay in Cabo.

Family Holiday at Monte Cristo Estates

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults and 3 little ones, ages 4,5, and 6, had a wonderful stay at the villa in Monte Cristo Estates this holiday season. The villa was high up which afforded outstanding views of the ocean and the surroundings. There was plenty of space for all of us - three large bedrooms, a living room with dining area and full kitchen, and a family room downstairs. The furnishings were fresh and comfortable. The hot tub and pool, all private, gaves us all hours of fun right there. We also had full use of Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach resort below us, so the little kids had plenty of varied entertainment. We are grateful to the owners for making this outstanding experience available to us.

Unforgettable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

January 2013

We recently visited Cabo for the first time and decided to stay at Montecristo. While the pictures were amazing they don't do the place justice. The moment we walked through the front door was when we knew we walked into paradise. You are greeted with a soothing fountain and then swept away with a view that instantly takes your breath away.

It is the only place we have ever stayed where you can see the sunrise and sunset from your bedroom while looking at the blue Pacific Ocean! Our entire stay was complete relaxation from the personal infinity pool to the hot tub. The amenities are top notch and service from the resort made this the total package especially for our whole family.

There is no question we will be back.

Our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from our annual family vacation. We have stayed at many properties throughout Hawaii and the Caribean

This year, we chose to stay at this property. It was our first time at such a property that has the privacy of a home and all the convenience of an all-inclusive resort. We found this very nice as we always prefer to avaoid the crowds of the large resorts but found the relatively close location of the resort very nice.

The maid, shuttle, and conciere service was exceptional and beyond expectations.

The view from the deck was exceptional, again, beyond expectations. We had our morning meal every day on the deck and spent many afternoons as well. Nearly every day we could see whales in the ocean. Field glasses would be of great benefit in this regard. We also had many evening meals and after dark dips in the hot tub. The view of the lights below, again really is exceptional.

Our three mid-teen kids made great use of the pool and community fitness centre.

Gerry, the owner, was very helpfull in ensuring our vacation was without problems.

I highly recomended property in our opinion.

Extraordinary Mexico Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Cabo and we wanted a memorable and relaxing vacation. We were not disappointed. The location had a fantastic panoramic view from the highest hill in the entire resort including seeing whales from its terraces. Booking was incredibly easy and the owner provided us with multiple emails and print outs of information, they even had laundry detergent! The staff at Montecristco was extremely accommodating from delivering desserts at 10:00pm to arranging a special price for a sunset jazz and wine cruise. From our window we could see BOTH the sunrise and sunset. We can’t wait to return. Pictures cannot prepare you for how beautiful, serene, and expansive this villa is. This was exactly the relaxing vacation we were searching for, thank you Jerry and Judy! Cheers, Lillian and Rob.

Perfect location, stunning views, great accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this villa twice and plan to go again. Its location provides the best views. We love starting and ending each day in the infinity pool, watching the ships go out in the morning and the sunsets in the evening. Great accommodations and wonderful terrace space to enjoy the outdoors and the ocean views. The bedroom suites are so luxurious. The restaurants, swimming pools and other facilities at the resort are first class, as is the service from the Montecristo staff!

It is even more beautiful than the photos suggest! The owners are very easy to work with. Definitely recommend this for a family gathering, girls getaway, or romantic escape!
