La Jolla de Los Cabos house description
Situated on a hillside overlooking the Sea of Cortez and the famous Costa Azul beach, Casa Elizabeth is a two storey four bedroom luxury home with spectacular 360 degree views of the ocean and the mountains. Located within the gated community of La Jolla in San Jose del Cabo the home is safe and secure while at the same time being central to all amenities.
Warm, gentle breezes sweep up from the ocean onto the expansive exterior patios of this uniquely luxurious property. With 5500 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space there is ample room to find privacy while at the same time enjoying the company of friends and family. The hedged in lawn, garden areas, stone courtyard, exterior terraces with built in fire pits offer total seclusion, privacy and prime viewing for spectacular sunsets, full moons and whale watching. Of particular interest to surf aficionados, all three of the local surf breaks can be monitored from the rooftop terrace.
Casa Elizabeth is a tranquil and peaceful home. It is only ten minutes to downtown San Jose del Cabo and a five minute walk to the beach. Surfing is within viewing and walking distance as is paddle boarding, shopping, swimming, fishing, diving, whale watching, golfing…pick your favorite and off you go.
With classic contemporary Mexican architectural features, this home designed and built by local architect Roberto Contreras has the hallmarks of Mexican craftsmanship while providing for modern conveniences. The granite counters, canterra and travertine floors, brick cupola and fire pits lend Casa Elizabeth an old world charm while the 18 meter lap pool, gourmet kitchen and 8 person Jacuzzi provide a new world experience.
This house is built for entertaining and for large gatherings with friends or family. The house seems to absorb everyone as regardless of whether there are two or eight people it is a tranquil and peaceful setting. This may be due to the many little areas to slip away to. There are five outdoor gathering places in which to be alone or with others; the front enclosed courtyard with a fire pit, umbrella, shady mango tree and comfy chairs; the large conversational round fire pit at the back of the house by the pool; the upstairs terrace by the jacuzzi with a stunning ocean view; the 'surf patrol' terrace on the very top of the house has an outstanding unimpeded 360 degree view and is an ideal place to watch the waves from sunrise to sunset; and the covered canterra patio that runs the length of the pool beside the waterfall. There are four bedrooms and each has a private ensuite. Three bedrooms have king sized beds with private patios and one bedroom has two single beds.
The full sized gourmet kitchen is fully outfitted with all appliances including a dishwasher which can sterilize, a gas range, a large freezer and an outdoor Viking BBQ.
The dining room easily seats eight people.
It is easy to stay connected to the outside world in Casa Elizabeth if you chose to do so. There is a wifi connection and a vonage line that connects immediately to anywhere in North America. Satellite television keeps you current with local news and sports. Music from your Ipod can be connected throughout the home and patios to ensure your experience is fun and relaxing.
It is easy to 'be' in Casa Elizabeth and San Jose del Cabo. There are local grocery stores to shop in, as well as some of the bigger stores if you choose. The local restaurants and taco stands are outstanding and you can find a variety of dining experiences, from simple fares to gastronomic delights.
There is plenty to do if you are so inclined, take in horseback riding, surfing, snorkeling, hiking, swimming with dolphins, zip lining, yoga and fishing or conversely simply enjoy the sun and serene pace of Mexico. Either way this is the perfect home to do it all.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: My husband and I built our Mexican dream home in 2007. We bought this property in 2000 with a view to retirement and with the vision of an amazing local architect and builder, Casa Elizabeth came to fruition in February 2007. It has been fantastic to be in this home with friends and family. Although we picked this location due to the view and proximity to the beach and surfing, it was here that my husband began to paint, something that has inspired such passion in his life. It is here that he connects with himself. I too have found a way to connect with my passion in Mexico. I am a dressage rider and I have been lucky to ride with the Cuadra San Francisco, a local riding stable. I have learned so much about the Spanish riding method and to have the opportunity to ride amazing horses with amazing teachers. This is a home in which connection, clarity and peace seems to coalesce. Mexico is really about beingness for us.
Why the Owner Chose La Jolla de Los Cabos:
This property is really about the view of the ocean, the proximity to the beaches, especially the surf breaks and the added benefit of the security of a gated community. Casa Elizabeth is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and the neighbours are very friendly and supportive.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the greatest joys in my life is coming to Mexico and checking on my yard. I know that sounds funny, but I love to see the mango tree that we planted in 2007 as a skinny little stick and measure how much it has grown and watch the mangos ripen. I walk around the house and yard for the first few days and say, wow, look at how high the palm trees are! check out the amount of mangoes we are going to have! My husband just shakes his head.
