Cabo Pulmo villa description

El Encanto is an artful, luxury view home with generous patios and private landscaped grounds. We offer three charming suites—ideal for families or multiple couples. Individual suites also available.

Art is a central theme, with folkart collected over years of Mexico travel, plus contemporary nature-inspired works, and whimsical touches that will surprise and delight. An eclectic mix of handcrafted furniture, traditional wood windows, and oriental carpets throughout convey an intimate timeless feel. Many people have said that it is like living in one of Diane's paintings.

Comfort-designed for southern Baja's famously mild climate, rooms spill out onto generous covered patios, sheltered from stiff winter nortes and open to the gentle breezes of summer. Private walled gardens put some of Baja's showiest natives on display, complemented by desert-adapted plants from throughout the world. Flowers attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies, plus birdbaths and feeders, keep the gardens lively!

Our home is close to beach, restaurants, dive center and other local services—all in easy walking distance, and our English speaking property managers will assure your best vacation ever.

This house is truly a labor of love. See more details and our availability calendar on our website (link below). We think you'll be delighted!

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Diane and Rob

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Rob and I designed El Encanto to be the kind of place we'd love to stay in with integrated indoor/outdoor living bringing us in contact with nature and full of art. We thought of the house and gardens as a giant art project. It was truly a labor of love and took us two years to build, working closely with local craftsmen.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  It is rare to live with so much beauty and art and nature, and El Encanto provides a truly unique vacation experience which is sure to be memorable.
