Property Description
Newly constructed in 2009, Villa Descanso is a home as stylish as its Pedregal address. A private sanctuary of welcoming luxury, Villa Descanso offers views extending to the Pacific Ocean and a wealth of top-of-the-line amenities for you and up to 19 of your friends.

Villa Descanso’s architecture blends the best of traditional Mexican and modern styles and harmonizes gracefully with the hillside setting. Once you step inside, you’ll admire the attention to detail evident throughout this beautiful home including Travertine marble flooring, granite and marble countertops, wood accents and a color palette inspired by desert hues. The nine suites, some featuring ocean views and private balconies, offer individual media centers and plenty of space for each member of your group to relax in comfort. Inside, you’ll also enjoy the lavish gourmet kitchen, an Internet study with multiple stations, and a large steam shower/bath.

Outside, you’ll find everything you need to enjoy the spectacular Baja sunshine. The spacious terrace offers an infinity pool with swim-up bar, a Jacuzzi for 8 and 12 lounge chairs. Fire up the gas barbecue, turn on the outdoor fire-pit and settle in for a marvelous evening enjoying the colors of the sunset dip beyond the Pacific.

If you can tear yourself away from this magnificent retreat, you’re just minutes to all the fun of Cabo San Lucas.

Villa Descanso’s full-time house staff is a distinguishing feature that separates this villa from most others. They provide the ultimate in personal attention and service, handling the indoor cleaning and maid services, outdoor cleaning and maintenance. They are knowledgeable of the villa and can assist with questions and problems should they arise. They are also excellent cooks, and for an additional fee (negotiated directly with them) are available for meal preparation and cooking.

NOTE: Villa Descanso can accommodate wedding parties/special events from 40 guests (sit down or standing). There is a minimum stay requirement, an extra event fee plus any applicable permit fees.

About the Area: Pedregal - Pacific
The Pedregal is the ‘Beverly Hills’ of private residential gated communities in Cabo San Lucas. Despite 30 years of steady growth, the Mediterranean-inspired community still manages to hold onto its Old World atmosphere while simultaneously embracing the new. Built into a magnificent granite hillside surrounded by exotic desert vegetation, the area’s 360 acres feature sweeping panoramic views over either Cabo San Lucas Bay or the Pacific. With cobblestone streets, fine restaurants and numerous recreational options, the emphasis is on privacy and a casual, tropical lifestyle. Exquisite showpiece homes abound. Excellent swimming is available at Mèdano Beach, less than a mile away. The Pedregal is an oasis of exclusivity just steps to all the action of downtown and the marina. The Pacific side of the Pedregal offers stunning ocean views, with whale watching right from the terrace of your luxurious private villa. The beautiful stretch of beach along the Pacific is perfect for sunbathing and beachcombing. Big Pacific waves make this beach unsuitable for swimming.

Amazing house   lauren g | New York City, New York
Went to cabo and stayed at villa descanso for my brothers bachelor party. The house was amazing and the staff were great. We had chefs come to the House to cook us dinner which were excellent. Show Less

Many of our guests appreciate the convenient proximity to downtown Cabo as well! We are so glad that you enjoyed the villa and the staff! We hope to help you plan another amazing vacation to Los Cabos in the future.
What a great place   A FlipKey verified reviewer
We travel often and come to Cabo 4-5 times a year . This is one of the best villas in Pedregal . You can't beat the service. We have a private chef come in every night. It's spectacular !!! Show Less
AWESOME, FABULOUS, AMAZING...need I say more!   tj6604 | Wilsonville, Oregon
Read More I just returned from an amazing vacation in Cabo at Villa Descanco, and if it weren't for the need to get back to the daily grind of work, kids, etc., I would hop back on a plane and fly back to Cabo and Villa Descanso in a heartbeat! This place is AMAZING!!!! We traveled with 8 other couples for an extended 40th birthday celebration for several folks in our group, and Villa Descanso was the perfect place for us all to relax, unwind, feast, drink, dance, and simply enjoy a few days and nights in paradise. From the moment we arrived, the owners were so accommodating in getting us in touch with transportation from the airport directly to the Villa (it's about a 45 minute drive from the airport to Pedregal in Los Cabos). Our driver was kind enough to stop at a market so we could purchase some snacks and drinks for our ride. Once we arrive at the villa, Fortunado, the care-taker, greeted us warmly with some ice cold drinks! The rooms are very spacious and you really can't go wrong in any of the rooms. We arrived a day after the majority of our group so weren't there for the initial room selection, but the room we were given was HUGE! We had Suite #9 - king bed, own bathroom, and two twin beds presumably for any kids or other folks to use. The only challenge with this room in particular is that it doesn't receive much natural light because of it's location in the villa. It does have an additional outside entrance that leads to a walkway to an outdoor patio, but you don't really get any natural light in the room itself. The room does have lots of light fixtures and two ceiling fans which more than accommodate for providing enough light. The kitchen was HUGE, there are tons of flat screen TVs throughout the entire house, a pool table, HUGE dining table (we actually sat 16 people comfortably at this table for breakfast and dinner). The outdoor area has a HUGE grill and firepit, and a great pool and spa for hours of enjoyment and we certainly took advantage of everything! Biggest benefit of this fabulous rental has to be having Futunado there to assist with anything and everything. He and his lovely wife, Lulu, were sooooo accommodating when it came to shopping, cleaning, and cooking gourmet FEASTS for us. My mouth is watering thinking about the yummy ceviche, grilled shrimp and fish with mango sauce, fresh salsas, guacamole, chorizo and eggs, machaca....SOOOOOO GOOD!!!! Wonderful trip with wonderful people and even better memories! We certainly hope to return to Villa Descanco soon! Show Less
Our Experience   A FlipKey verified reviewer | Sandy Utah
While the villa was very nice, what made the experience exceptional was the service that was provided us. Being able to call Fernando anytime day or night (which we sometimes did) was amazing. Having him coordinate things like a chef to come into the villa and cook dinner for us was amazing. It was a great time. Show Less
Amazing Villa that Everyone Should Experience!!   A FlipKey verified reviewer | Chicago
My friends and I rented this amazing villa and the pictures don't do justice for how amazing this house really is!! I would recommend this villa to anyone and the community is great. This villa has all the amenities (DVD, Satellite TV, iPod Hookup, Stereo in every room, Stereo outside, Free calls back to US and more..) and close to downtown. The resort staff was friendly and keep the place clean everyday. All I have to say is stay here if you can, we are coming back!! Show Less
Awesome!!   A FlipKey verified reviewer | Canada

Perfect for a Family Reunion   slg2010 | FL
Read More We had a wonderful stay at the Villa Descanso in Cabo San Lucas. The house was beautiful and fully accommodated our large group. The bedrooms are their own private sanctuaries, all with their own bathrooms, TV/Sterio/IPOD players. The common area is enormous and conducive to group eating and gatherings. We particularly loved the outdoor deck and pool area. Some of our group arrived later in the evening, and had a difficult time finding the Villa in the dark. I would suggest more specific directions from ESSV or the owner for those who are arriving on their own. The roads in Pedregal are bumpy and steep with hairpin turns. The Villa is not well marked from the road and difficult to see at night. Those of us who were lucky to arrive by ESSV van, were greated at the Villa by an ESSV representative as well as the caretaker, Fortunado. We were given a formal tour and tried very hard retain all of the electronic instructions, etc. We were relieved that the owner also provides a detailed instruction booklet! We had a few difficulties with the Satelite TV and the fire-pit, which were remedied promptly. The house was very clean and in perfect condition. The floors are all beautiful natural stone. The furniture is very sturdy and beds and sofas were built in. We were pampered by daily cleaning visits from Fortunado and his wife Lulu. The kitchen was fully equipped. We did have to ask for paper towels and napkins, which were promptly provided. The house is designed with 3 main levels requiring considerable stair climbing to the bedrooms and main level. I would imagine this is an issue with many of the homes in Pedregal, since it is built on the side of a mountain! We took advantage of the 2 community tennis courts and our favorite beach for walking was the one right in Pedregal. We recommend a car and made good use of our vehicles to travel into town for food and shopping and to explore other beaches for wonderful snorkeling (Chileno Bay is the best!). Show Less
Bachelor Party in Cabo   A FlipKey verified reviewer | Los Angeles
The house and view is amazing! Perfect house for entertaining with the pool, hot tub, pool table, integrated sound system, etc, etc. I highly recommend this house for both a group of couples or single guys/girls. Little bit of a journey (10 minutes up/down a steep cobblestone road) into town but it was always easy to get a taxi promptly. Show Less
