This is a killer house. Great location, great pool, fantastic kitchen, great sound system for the occasional dance off, and plenty of bedrooms. Every night the jacuzzi was like a massage therapist. Definitely using this house again! This time for a golf trip with the dudes!

"Best vacation I've ever taken - stunning!"
Star Rating


We stayed at Costa Brava in January to escape the winter and spend a long weekend with friends. None of us had been to Cabo before and (admittedly) didn't have a ton of time nor the energy to do extensive planning for the trip. The staff at ESSV was outstanding - they arranged a boat trip with La Islita (a highlight of the trip) and dinner reservations, as well as provided great advice on renting a car. The concierge in Cabo (Rodolfo) was extremely helpful. The house itself was more than we could ever had asked for. The transfer from the airport was ready when we arrived, friendly, and professional. The margaritas, salsa, and ceviche were the perfect welcome to Cabo, along with the stunning views from the house. Having the pool at hot tub right at the house were perfect, and the beach was less than a minute's walk down the hill. Since we were in the corridor and away from the resorts, it was like having a private beach the entire weekend. The house was in excellent condition and had everything you could ever want in it. The value for the price paid was outstanding. Our entire group consensus was that this is the best vacation we've ever taken. We've already started making plans to return next year and insist on staying at the same property. I cannot recommend the location and property highly enough. Our stay was fantastic.

We were 4 adults seeking a quiet, relaxing beach vacation and we got just that! We chose Costa Brava for the location and the views. We spent 9 days at this beautiful home and absolutely loved it! The home is very clean, very well equipped and the view is spectacular!! Loved breakfasts on the patio and night swims under the stars. Location is perfect! It is right in the middle on the corridor between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo. About 15 minutess in either direction. Any groceries you need can easily be picked up at the Mega in San Jose or the Walmart in Cabo. A rental car is a must and driving around the area and both towns is a breeze. Day or night. The beach is a quick walk and is gorgeous!!! Keep in mind that this is not a swimmable beach all year long. It was not safe in August but this made absolutely no difference to us at all and went down several times to soak up the beauty! There are two beautiful swim safe beaches 5 mins away (Chileno and Maria). We just can't say enough about this home! WE LOVE IT and cannot wait to get back! The staff was exceptional from start to finish! Amber at CaboVillas did an amazing job of organizing our trip. She took care of the reservation, the arrival, the rental car, answering all our questions, making recommendations etc. She did it all and was very friendly. Shuttle driver from airport was great. Arrived at the villa to find our rental car waiting in the driveway. The door swings open and Manager, Rodolfo, greets us with a warm welcome! He gave us the tour and was on his way. We had absolutely no issues but called him with a couple questions and he was always immediately available. Very friendly! He will help set up fun things to do too! The rental car rep finished up our rental right on site and was wonderful. We drove ourselves to the airport and returned it with ease on our day of departure. Zumiko comes in three times during the week to change linens and clean if needed. She was so very sweet! Thank you one and all! To sum it up, Costa Brava is a must visit! Much thanks to the owners for

We spent two wonderful weeks at the Villa Costa Brava. The property is exquisite and very well maintained. House looked after by Zumiko - pool and garden by attentive and very pleasant fellows. We had several meals at restaurants which were excellent and the location was good for either San Jose del Cabo or Cabo San Lucas. Rodolfo, the Manager was quick to respond to any request. The noise from the construction site opposite the house was a bit much, but, apart from that everything was perfect.

"Outstanding service and accommodations with a great location"

My sister, her husband and I stayed at this villa and really enjoyed it. There was whale watching every morning from the pool deck. The villa was spotless and management was very accommodating. As well, Frank at cabovillas.com was very helpful with the car rental and ensured that we had all the required documents. The included private taxi from the airport happened flawlessly. Make sure to rent a car as this property is half way between the two major centres. Sunset Mona Lisa is a must and is a short drive from Villa Costa Brava.

"Beautiful Villa & Isolated Beach make for a relaxing vacation"
Star Rating


We enjoyed our stay at Villa Costa Brava over Christmas in 2014. It is a beautiful villa, close to the beach with an amazing view of the water. You can watch for whales and rays from your pool side beach chair while sipping a margarita. That's what I call relaxing! Road noise is not a big deal, especially if you sleep with the air conditioner on. The last few days we had some people that came to stay in the apartment style building behind us and of course they had a screaming kid, which was annoying when trying to relax at the pool. We came here to get away from people, so it was disappointing, but not the fault of the "villa", of course. We had a couple of geckos that made its way in the villa somehow...no big whoop. It was pretty cute and my boys (17 & 14) thought it was great. I figure they probably took care of any little bugs in the villa. There are a couple of "resident" lizards that hang out by the pool shrubs, so watch for them to visit. They're skiddish and won't bother you. The booking process with Nik was great, at first. Then there were several mix ups (the invoices they send with payment confirmations are rather confusing). The good, the bad and the ugly: TransCabo picks you up at the airport (but charges $30 to stop on the way to the villa for 30 minutes at the Mega store, this should be free for as much as the villa costs) Air conditioning units in every room Abundance of books, games and videos for your use in the villa Local and US phone calls are free Proximity to the beach is a plus and the beach has very few people at any given time, it's virtually YOUR beach. Take your flip-flops as the granite is sharp to climb on while exploring the tide pool nooks and crannies. The sunrises are spectacular and I absolutely COULDN'T miss a single one...so heavenly. Open floor plan makes for cooking and dining while visiting a pleasure Speakers are great to hook up to an iPod in the villa. Open up the doors towards the pool and listen to your tunes. It would be much more convenient, however, to have outdoor speakers and an

"Loved Costa Brava"
Star Rating


We rented Costa Brava for a week, and really enjoyed it. The house is lovely, the pool is wonderful and it is in a quiet little neighborhood about 1/2 way between Cabo and San Jose. Some helpful hints for people that stay here. 1. you should probably rent a car. We didn't and rode the buses, which is a fun adventure, but it gets old after a while. And what you'll spend on taxis you could easily rent a car. 2. The housekeeper came to clean Mon, Wed, Fri. She is really nice, but she comes in the morning, so it's a little hard to sleep in those days. After her startling me on Monday morning, we made plans Weds and Fri to leave the house early. The gardeners also came one afternoon we were spending by the pool, but they came in the afternoon and didn't bother us 3. The glass factory across the street is fun to visit and if you visit early in the week, they will make glassware to your specifications. 4. the Marbella next store has a very nice restaurant, with good prices, a nice view and I thought the food was really good. And they have a bar also if you want some company drinking :-). 5. Chileno beach is a short drive and is very nice to drive to and bring your snorkel gear and a picnic to spend some time. 6. The beach (like so many in Cabo) is beautiful, but not really safe for swimming. We liked to go for walks on the beach and swim in the pool. We had a little medical emergency while we were there, one of our girls tripped on the road down to the beach and cut her hand on broken glass. The villa representative sent us a taxi and the cab driver was so helpful in taking us to the urgent care and waiting while we received treatment and then took us to the pharmacy and drove us back to the villa. We have usually stayed in hotels, but this was a special occasion and we really liked the tranquility of staying in a private villa. We hope to visit again.

"Perfect Villa for family of 6"
Star Rating


From the margarita reception with Rudolfo to the short walk to the Cortez side beach, Costa Brava was the perfect villa for us, our grown kids and the grand kids. The 6 of us had a great time hanging out in the pool and playing in the surf at the beach. The walk to the beach is about 200 yards and should not be an issue for anyone. The area surrounding Costa Brava is controlled by security gates and is very safe. The Villa is located far enough from the Cabo craziness but close enough to make it easy to go play in town when we wanted to. The Villa is very well maintained and all on one level which, we have learned after problems with slippery stairs in other Villas, is a definite plus. Great vacation, great villa, great beach and a great location.

"Amazing family vacation!"
Star Rating


Our family felt right at home at this fabulous villa in Los Cabos. We were able to rent Baby Gear which made accommodations for our family of 8 so easy! The morning trips to the beach (just a short walk) were so memorable with the amazing sunrises, the whales, and peacefulness of the area. Our concierge Rudolpho was excellent in answering any questions we had and setting up any excursions we inquired about. I would definitely recommend this villa! We had such a wonderful and memorable family vacation.

"Fabulous getaway!!"
Star Rating


This house was more than we even hoped for! We were in Cabo for a family wedding of more than 150 people. Most stayed in a nearby hotel. We had a house to ourselves where we could hang out at the pool, cook our own meals, dine outside enjoying the sight of whales playing in the ocean. The beach was just steps away. The house is in a gated area and felt very safe and secure. It is located between San Jose and Cabo San Lucas. A car rental is definitely recommended. From my first phone call to reserve the house until our reluctant departure, I was treated with professionalism, courtesy and prompt assistance. Everyone on the phone as well as the team in Cabo was such a pleasure to deal with. My family is grateful for the experience.

What an amazing week we just spent in Cabo! Villa Costa Brava exceeded all of our expectations and we couldn’t have had a better week. The villa is located between San Jose and San Lucas and we really enjoyed not being around the hustle and bustle of San Lucas. We did rent a car for the week and it really made the trip for us. We were able to come and go as we please and do many different things on our own time. Back to the house, extremely clean and no issues with any pests or bugs of any kind. Very modern and updated inside, the best part was the king bed in the master suite, in fact my wife wants to buy the same bed when we get home! Pool and beach are both incredible, finally able to swim in the ocean the last day of our stay, was a little rough prior to that. I saw many complaints about the walk to the beach, but it is nothing to worry about, great cardio! If you want to swim in the ocean Chileno Bay is very close by and we swam and snorkeled twice during our stay. The grill is a very nice option for cooking as well, we did dinner at the house 4 nights and it allowed us to make hamburgers and chicken which is a nice change when you are tired of eating chips and salsa! I could go on and on, but if you are looking for a great stay, this is def the place for you!

Our family had a wonderful stay at Villa Costa Brava. We have 6 month old twins and the villa was perfect for us as we could have the babies nap in the house while we were outside in the pool (with the monitor). The house and grounds were georgeous and the kitchen well equiped. The management company arranged for us to rent some baby equipment which was in the villa when we arrived. Our rental car was also at the villa when we arrived. Everything was smooth and easy and the beach and view unbeatable. It was a recipe for success for us with small children but would have been equally wonderful as a couple or with friends. The beds were comfortable. The only small critisism I have is that the water took a long time to get hot in the bathrooms and the water pressure was sometimes weak. But other than that I have not complaints. Having a washer and dryer was also key with small babies and they work very well.The maid comes every other day which is probably unnecessary, and she washed all the towels and sheets many times - again probably unnecessary (not very environmentally friendly). But it was nice all the same to have this service. I would definitely come again to this villa.

Service met expectations. The home and the neighborhood was not as luxurious as described or we expected. The excessive ant problem was dissapointing. The house was not as close to the beach as we expected and the hill climbing back wasn't very relaxing. The location was hard to find for taxi's. We liked the large pool the best, Rudolfo was outstanding as usual.

"Exceeded Expectations - Phenominal Views"
Star Rating


Upon Arrival we were met at the villa by the concierge and the housekeeper. They presented us with homemade salsa and margaritas! the villa was a great size for the seven of us and each bedroom had its own access to the pool/patio area. The villa is situated such that there is absolute privacy. The villa was extremely clean and the appliances were modern. We had everything we needed. It is a very short walk to the private beach area. This walk consists of a very steep decline/incline so care must be taken to get there and back. The beach was very private and we only saw a few other people on the beach whenever we were there. The sunrises are spectacular and you have a great view - we sat out on the patio many mornings drinking coffee and watching the sun come up. The images on the website do not really do this place justice, it is beautiful. The location is between San Jose and Cabo San Lucas at the 17.5 Km marker. Great value and we would definately come back.

First, the management company was one of the best I have ever dealt with either on VRBO, or otherwise. ESSV is extremely professional with a great attention to detail, before the trip and upon arrival. They had a pitcher of margaritas waiting for us upon arrival. Nice touch. They had a rental car waiting, also great service (Avis, Dreams). We stayed as a couple, which was very affordable in the off season. It was plenty large enough for two couples, or a couple with 2-3 kids. The bedrooms are on the opposite sides of the house, and every one has access to the pool. Master bedroom and bath is big with large walk-in shower and very large double vanity sink. PLENTY of towels and sheets. The bed is a little funny, and feels high in the middle, but it's comfortable enough. The other two bedrooms were a double and a double/twin. Because every room looks out on the pool, the rooms aren't super-private. You can always shut your shade if you are changing or something. But, you'll want to keep those windows open at night to watch the sunrise, and to hear the ocean! Kitchen has everything you could need. Very well stocked. The housekeeper keeps it extremely clean (service every other day). We were spoiled. We ate in for half our meals, which was nice. Although, the Marbella suites next door has a great restaurant as well. The washer and dryer were very clean and new. I think they work better than the ones I have at home! I spent every day next to the pool. Boy, do I miss it. I can't tell you how much more relaxing it is to have your own private pool versus fighting for chairs at a resort. Wow wow wow. It is truly private as there are bushes surrounding the yard. Someone comes to clean it every other day, but it may still get a bunch of leaves in it. Big deal. There's a net... The beach is very close, like a block away. There is quite a big hill down to it, and it isn't a flat "running" beach like many other places. Sand is larger-grained and a challenge to walk in. The sunrises and watching the waves is amazing and make up for everything. I don't swim, so I can't tell you how s

Our stay was great at the Costa Brava. It was private and away from all the time share crazy sales people.

This was one of the best vacations we have had, the villa was exactly as it looks in the pictures and it was very clean and very well taken care of. Alisha came in every 2 days to clean and she did an amazing job, the pool was taken care as well as the garden area. If you plan on spending a fair amount of time away from the villa then I would recommend a car rental, but it was easy to get a taxi. The villa is so beautiful that we only left to get groceries....the beach is right there for your morning walks. We watched the whales from the patio and the cruise ships going into and out from Cabo San Lucas...Wonderful vacation:)

"Fantastic time at Costa Brava!"

We truly enjoyed our stay at Costa Brava! The view was amazing and we saw whales many times from the patio - often breaching (I'd recommend bringing binoculars during whale season). The pool was great - the privacy and the size was perfect - and often the small "kiddie pool" was warm enough to be used like a hot tub. The beach was a short walk down the private drive. We did play in the waves and felt safe enough to do so. The beach is beautiful and there is hardly anyone on it! Location was great as we had a rental vehicle - it was nice to be close to both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo (as well as Costco)! We utilized the outdoor dining table every day for all meals - the view couldn't be beat. The house was a good size for the 4 of us (not too big to get lost in and not so small that you don't have privacy if you want it) and both couples had a sliding door to the pool area. We will definitely recommend this option to friends and we'd book it again if we get the chance!

Took family of seven and stayed at Costa Brava for spring break 2011. Great layout with pool, great outdoor deck and dining area, clean and roomy. Owner and villa coordinators very helpful and accurate in property description and amenities. Pictures don't do it justice compared to seeing it for real. Fantastic views of Sea of Cortez, including whales sighted off shore from the house. Lots of amenities and easy to get to/from Cabo San Lucas or San Jose del Cabo via rental car - we rented car but bus stop by next door suites hotel. Beach almost private, not too many people on this beach locale, although surf is very rough thus no swimming. But took kids to main beach in Cabo for swimming. Family had great experience. We can't wait to go back!

This property could not have been better for myself and the others traveling in our group. Our group consisted of 3 couples and 2 children (11 months and 2 and a half). We had never booked a villa before, always opted for all inclusive holidays at resorts. So we were a little concerned with what the Villa would be like when we got there, pictures can be deceiving. But I have to say what you see is what you get in this case, the pictures look just like the Villa when you get there. The Villa is very nice, cozy, clean and a nice size for a group. The view is beautiful, access to the beach is just a very short walk down (the walk is a little steep coming back up, but not bad at all), it is in a safe gated area. The bus stop is right across the road so it's easy to go into downtown Cabo or San jose (both are about 15 min away) we rented a car and in the end we really didn't need it. There is a small convenience store across the street as well as a restaurant, and a boutique hotel/resort just down the beach that has spa services and a restaurant. The location was just perfect for us, the beach was amazing! Nice soft sand and very private. The pool was a great perk, most of our days were spent there, and we saw whales almost every day from the patio. The only down side was that the bathrooms all had stand up showers, so it wasn't great for bathing the children, but it's manageable as the showers are large. I wanted to mention that the master bedroom is wonderful, it's quite large with his and hers sinks, a seperate shower and toilete with small closet, as well as a desk. The maid service was also great, the lady was very nice and did a great job. All of our dealings with Cabo Villas was great as well, they were quick to respond to questions and made booking the Villa and shuttle very easy. We really enjoyed our time at The Costa Brava, we hope to make it back some day. You can noy go wrong booking this Villa!

We had the absolute best time in Cabo. We stayed at the Villa Costa Brava, which was between San Jose and Cabo San Lucas -- it couldn't have been a better spot if you wanted to go in both directions. Deep sea fishing, horseback riding, sunset dinner cruise, dancing, or just relaxing at our own villa in our own pool with no one else in the pool except me and my hubby!

Villa Costa Brava was the ideal villa for my family and I. While their are other villa that are much fancier and palacial that ws not what I was looking for in a villa to bring the family. My 3 older boys and my 9 year old daughter just thought it was perfect. My wife just loved the idea that it had a hamock just outside our bedroom door. It's a place that really felt homey and comfortable and not like a museum. I recommend it for anyone with a family of my size.
