Villa Descansos 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, youll 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 Descansos 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.
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 sooo 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...Sooo good!!! Wonderful trip with wonderful people and even better memories! We certainly hope to return to Villa Descanco soon!
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.
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!!
