Not one but two work-of-art entrances welcome you to Casa Cuvee. First, through an ornate wood door framed by two chandeliers and a fountain, find a courtyard with a circular seating area in front of a stone fireplace, accented by exquisitely curved Mexican pottery.
Then, when you enter the villa itself, your first vision is of a dramatic spiral staircase lit by hand-blown blue light fixtures, and at its base, an original portrait painting by David Villasenor. Also showcased here are sculptures by Ernesto Cruz, a world-class architect, sculptor, poet and artisan whose work is proudly displayed throughout Casa Cuvee, Even the sculptures display niches were hand-painted by a French artist to compliment the hand-blown fixtures that illuminate the stairs. Painstaking details like this signal that you are in a signature Cuvee property.
Even better, this villa is located on exclusive Medano Beach, just a 5-minute walk from restaurants, nightlife, and the marina. Guests of Casa Cuvee also have access to the Hacienda Beach Club and its multiple pools, luxurious spa and fitness center and the Hacienda Cocina y Cantina, a restaurant consistently rated one of the best in Cabo.
This commercial kitchen maintains the pairing of contemporary luxury and Mexican tradition found throughout the villa. Professional-grade appliances and almost endless counter top space including an oversized island bar with bar stool seating are accented by handmade dishware from mainland Mexico and hand-blown glass light pendants the color of the sea.
At Casa Cuvee Villa 7, we present one of the most authentic and enchanting dining experiences at any property in our portfolio. A Spanish Colonial dining table provides an exquisite dining space for eight to ten people. A custom-made iron light fixture from Guadalajara casts its glow upon the artisan dishware, handcrafted and painted especially for Casa Cuvee. Similarly, the glassware in this house was hand-selected as it emerged from the furnaces after being treated by individual craftsmen. The skill of these craftsmen, whose time-tested methods are a true art form, is showcased in the unique and individual beauty of each hand-blown piece.
Adding to the warm, artisan experience is a large-scale oil painting of a festive Mexican market scene, purchased from a gallery in Tlaquepaque, a quaint and charming antique center which attracts artists, artisans and art collectors from Mexico and around the world.
Made for entertaining, the spacious great room opens to the outdoor area with a receding, floor-to-ceiling wall of glass and features two conversational seating areas. The first is made up of two deluxe sofas facing an arresting piece of Italian cabinetry, which houses a 55-inch TV. Also on each side of the TV cabinet are two sculptural signature heart pieces by Ernesto Cruz. A cocktail table in this area was hand-carved from Cypress wood by artisans in Guadalajara. The second seating area, with its leather and fabric chairs, is anchored by a fireplace perfect for a rare cool evening in Los Cabos. A true show-stopper hangs just above this fireplace: a large-scale, hand-carved, vintage sculpture of the Archangel Michael, complete with sword and scale of justice, uncovered in Tlaquepaque.
Courtyard: Here, a transition space becomes a warm and comfortable area that guests gravitate toward, thanks to its stone fireplace, large pots from Mexico, Spanish tile floor, plush circular seating area, and the soothing sounds of the fountain in the entry foyer. This area is accessed through a receding wall of windows in the kitchen and dining area.
Access Medano Beach directly from the terrace, which also offers unbound views of the white sand beach, the Sea of Cortez and Land's End. Enjoy the views and the company - from multiple sitting areas decorated in palate of crisp white and saturated aqua. Oversized chaise lounges accommodate two people. Submerge into the hot spa with waterfall feature a must-try in the evening, when the space is lit by gas lanterns and fire features. In the daytime, take a dip in the infinity pool or watch the beach's activity, including sunbathers reclining on the white sand beach under the palms and sail boats and other sea vessels passing through.
We LOVED Michelle! She is "crazy good" and we were so impressed that she came the night the chef made dinner to ensure everything was great, and that she was there before and after their catamaran trip. One of my daughter's and I were fighting over who would bring her home. We were also impressed with the departure gift provided.
