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.

Guest Reviews for Villa Descanso
"Phenominal Vacation"
Review from Tee1975   | Los Angeles, California  August 23, 2016
I traveled to Cabo with a group of 18 people. The Villa was the highlight of the vacation. The house was spacious and very modern. It could be very difficult to get a taxi from the house so a rental is good to have, and I highly recommend a chef.
"Cabo Villas was excellent to work with"
Review from Jackie S   | Houston, Texas  January 25, 2016
A group of 16 of us rented a Villa from Cabo Villas. The whole process was seamless and very pleasant. Amber, Julie and Frank were all a pleasure to work with. They helped us find the perfect house for a group that was there for a wedding. They gave us restaurant recommendations and also gave us info for local chefs. Overall it was a wonderful experience and we will definitely use them again next time we're in Cabo.
"Amazing house"
Review from lauren g   | New York City, New York  May 12, 2015
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.
"What a great place"
Review from A Flipkey verified reviewer   |   July 1, 2014
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 !!!

Granted Pedregal and the Villa are both gorgeous, but I am the mother of a 3 year old and was constantly ill at ease due to the safety concerns. The villa has a steep winding marble staircase from the top floor down to the bottom that gets very slippery and was even difficult and unsafe for my parents in their 80's. On our first day my son had a scary fall down the steepest part of the staircase, tumbling down nearly six steps. Thankfully he was okay and is fairly athletic, though we shudder to think what could have happened. He also slipped two times near the pool which is also very slippery when wet and my mother as well. We had to place towels all around to lower the risk of injury. There are no baths in the villa, only showers, so I had no place to bathe my toddler and 10 month old baby during our stay. Perhaps this is minor, but I think it should be noted for families looking for a villa. There were other issues that made our stay not as relaxing as we would have liked - the constant jackhammering from the construction right next door. Granted the owners make a disclaimer about possible construction, but it was so grating to hear a jackhammer from 9 - 5 everyday and nobody in our party could enjoy a siesta or a nap by the pool during those hours. Fortunado, his wife and Sylvia were amazing and the food was fantastic. The management - primarily Janna from Earth, Sand and Sky were less than on point with regards to our requests and never returned communication in a timely matter. Only after several requests were things accomplished and even after we arrived, we were left high and dry. We had requested a meal on our first night and even created a grocery list at Janna's request, only to learn we had done all that in vain. Hungry from our long travels, the staff were not made aware that they were to cook for us that evening. There seems to be a tremendous lack of communication between the management of the villa and the staff, but thankfully my sister and her husband are very fluent in Spanish and helped us navigate through the rest of the week. The villa is gorgeous and though getting to the beach is a bit of a hike, the setting is lovely. I just think it's not suitable (or safe!) for families with small children and that that information should be provided to prospective renters. Sidenote: TV's and printer weren't working. less
