Year Purchased: 2008
About: About 20 years ago, my parents built a lovely condo near Cabo San Lucas within the community of Cabo Glorieta where I would bring my three children. Eventually, I also built within the development. However, with only 3 bedrooms and many friends who I wished to entertain in Cabo San Lucas, I bought into Santa Carmela, remodeled and transformed my villa there into La Villa Elegante to entertain my friends and family a few times a year. I have enjoyed some of my best vacations in Cabo, as there is something for everyone. Lying on the beach in lounge chairs having lunch at Mango deck, sipping 2-for-1 cocktails, and snorkeling in the warm calm waters of the Sea of Cortez are some of my favorite days. I am former CEO of a water sports business and lover of beautiful beach travel destinations. I was born and raised in Southern California and currently reside with my family in South Orange County.
Why Santa Carmela: A quick two-hour flight from Southern California, Cabo San Lucas is our travel destination because it has consistently good weather, wonderfully warm people, a relaxing atmosphere, miles of beautiful beaches, excellent golf courses, some of the best fishing, incredible spas, an assortment of outdoor activities and a lively nightlife all year around. New International flights are flying out of John Wayne Orange County, CA airport make for seamless travel to Cabo.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: The fall of 2012 is the first time I have put my villa on VRBO, prior to that I kept it as my private second home. Thus, the villa is very much set up with that personal touch. I treasure this villa as my family has enjoyed so many great times in the five years I've owned it. You will quickly agree this isn't just a 'rental' property. I will cherish sharing my Villa de Elegante with you!
