About this listing
Our home away from home in Cabo has 4 bedrooms - 2 of the rooms share a bath off of the hallway, a 3rd room on the front part of the house has a private bath, and the master has both a private bath and sliding glass doors that lead to the pool area. Upstairs has the living room, kitchen, and outdoor dining with grill.
Highlights of the house - great pool with ample space for sunbathing. A stairway from the pool area takes you back up to the main living space. There is also a sliding glass door that goes directly to the master bedroom from the pool area.
From the living area & terrace, enjoy views of Lands End and the cruise ships..... or, just get lost in a book - easy to do!
We are located in a neighborhood called El Tezal..... up a dirt road with locals all around....mostly Gringos. Easy access to some conveniences - Costco, a few gyms in the area with day rates, and a Corona distributor at the entrance of the main road. (Modelorama)
It's about a 5 minute drive to town. There are a lot of really great restaurants - some quite near the house (though none within walking distance) and others in the downtown area. We'd be happy to provide some recommendations - our top 3 favorites in town are Pancho's (well, it's owned by members of our family, authentic Mexican, and really great ribs!!), Hacienda Beach Club (amazing serene environment right on the water), and Gardenia's (hands down the best place for quick tacos and fabulous Margaritas or a beer). Don't expect it to be on the water with views - it's in town, turn left at McDonald's, down a couple of blocks on the right.
The marina is always a wonderful place for food plus people watching!!!
Medano Beach is the "swimming" beach. Turn left at the first signal in town & you will find public parking, to the left of Cascadas..
If you decide to head out of town on a road trip, Todos Santos is always fun (go see what everyone thinks is Hotel California along with local art) with a must see stop at Art & Beer along the way (Oysters, More Margaritas, and really cool rustic seating). A drive back to San Jose (near the airport) is also great due to a good variety of restaurants & more shops!
We've spent a lot of time in Cabo over the past 15 years and we love it...so much so that we bought our own place You tell us what you like and we'll tell you where to go!

We have a property manager who is local (in Cabo) and a gal who is available to assist with any extra activities, chef in the home, etc.
We are located in a neighborhood called El Tezal..... up a dirt road with locals all around....mostly Gringos.
We like it because there are not many neighbors & so have a feeling of privacy
No "convenient" public transportation. We suggest you rent a car. If you want to take the public bus, you would need to walk to the bottom of the main road. If you do not rent a car, you will need to call a taxi to get to & from town.
Other Things to Note
30 day cancellation policy. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to call me.
We don't have many rules! First and foremost - have a great, relaxing vacation. That is the point!
We can accommodate up to 8 persons, but remember 2 rooms will share a bath.
Your stay includes housekeeping services after the fact, so, no need to strip beds when you leave. But, you're on your own while on site - you can use the washer/dryer to freshen the sheets or towels as you see fit. For longer stays, housekeeping will be provided once a week.
There is a TV, but no satellite connection. There are DVDs for you to enjoy, but bring your own if you have favorites.
There is WiFi internet connection. The code is on the back of the modem/router by the phone in the kitchen.
Just be courteous of our things - we also travel to this home regularly and hope that you will enjoy, and respect the home just as we do. Thank you and enjoy!
The house offered a great home environment and living space. Plenty of room for 6 guys. The pool was nice and warm. Probably only 5 minute drive from downtown area. Beds were clean and comfortable. There were bugs here and there, but this is Mexico. Each room had their own A/C unit which was nice! There's only one other house next door, so privacy was great. The only downside was finding the location of the house or getting a taxi to pick you up. It is a little hard to explain to taxi's on where you're located. Other than that, the house provided everything we needed.
Margaret was very responsive to our questions and requests, and was very understanding with our need to possibly reschedule/cancel due to an approaching hurricane (which luckily did not arrive).
The house has lots of space (perfect for two families of four), is well maintained (our kids loved the pool) and feels very safe. The air conditioning, plumbing, grill, washer/dryer, etc. all work fine (note: no dishwasher, if that's an issue for you).
The house is only a short drive to Cabo SL and great beaches like Santa Maria and Chileno (recommend renting a car). Costco and WalMart are less than 5 minutes away (although we liked the Mega, in town, which is more like a Target). San Jose del Cabo is about 20 minutes up the coast.
Overall, this is a great rental if you have a large group (the number of rooms, beds and bathrooms will meet your needs); you don't have to be right on the beach (but still have a great view); and you want to relax away from the crowds and party life of central Cabo/the hotel zone.
The house was amazing! All of my friends enjoyed staying there. It's very spacious and full of life. The upstairs setup is perfect for activities and grilling. The pool was awesome but we had trouble finding the exterior lights. We couldnt have found a better spot at such a great price. The house even came with a "continuity book". The location was kind of tricky but we figure it out pretty easily. We rented a car and drove to the strip or common areas and it worked out well. The only downside if I had to give one is the dirt road to the house. Overall, I would stay there again in a heartbeat... Thanks Margaret!
It is an amazing place to stay. We all love it, my daughter love to play with the toys in the pool. The lay out is great.
La casa está increíble, el barrio tiene todos los servicios para pasarlo bien, las vistas de la casa son hermosas y la anfitriona y la ama de llaves fueron muy amables a pesar de todos los inconvenientes que tuve para organizar este viaje, por supuesto, la amabilidad de estas personas hizo más ameno el viaje, muchas gracias, recomiendo por completo hospedarse en esta casa, es genial.
This spacious villa exceeded our expectations! The wifi and stateside phone service were priceless as there is limited service locally. Everything was clean and insect free. With Costco and Super Walmart almost next door we created our own restaurant style meals at home. 7 adults had the time of their lives and spent most of the time on the huge bbq deck from sun up to well after sundown. We will undoubtedly stay longer next time as we were the envy of all the folkRens back home who wanted to come down the next week. Directions and entry instructions were spot on.
Travel note: There is no wifi or phone service at the Cabo Airport so make sure all in your party are flying in together if you can. Also rental car agencies require Mexican liability insurance. Check to see if your stateside insurance covers driving in Mexico. If not there is a surcharge of about $20/day. None of this is the fault of the renter and in no way diminished our enjoyment once we got to the villa. See you next year!
Casa Cabo Vista was amazing! It was very clean and very well decorated. We particularly loved the terrace: it was perfect for grilling and relaxing after a day of surfing.
Margaret was also very fast to answer all the questions we had before and during the trip.
I would definitely recommend this house and wish we could have stayed longer!
