Tropical Hacienda Style Mexican Villa in Secure Gated Community

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

Welcome to Cinco Palms, a tropical oasis in a the secure gated community of Laguna Hills. Just 5 miles up the coast from San Jose, Laguna Hills is an escape from the hustle and bustle of the Los Cabos area. Watch the migrating pods of whales breach just off the beach and truly connect with nature in the most serene environment you could imagine. This is a brand new home never before lived in or rented hence our lack of reviews. Our home features 3 bedrooms, each with one queen bed and it's own private bathroom. Chefs will appreciate a gourmet fully equipped kitchen complete with a sub zero refrigerator and an italian Bertazoni 36 inch range or walk down to Buzzards Bar and Grill for a casual dining experience (breakfast lunch and dinner in the sand)

Relax by the pool & hot tub and or cozy up in our living room on a cool baja night. As we are located off the grid in an eco friendly solar community ( update: electric has now been run and we now have Air Conditioning) we hope to find those adventurous travlers that are ok with leaving those hair dryers at home. This is a nature lovers paradise and we are looking for those like minded travelers to share it with.

Our home has wifi and a Smart 47 inch tv which streams netflix ect (no cable).

*May not be safe or suitable for children in the ages of 2-13 years of age, this is a high end home with many delicate details.

*We ask that guests to be consciences about the use of water as it has to be trucked in.

*** VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: The hot tub is not able to be run 24/7. We have it set to turn on automatically every day from 4 to 6pm and will heat up to 100 degrees. The pool is not heated and can be chilly but does feel nice especially as the mexican sun starts heating up...

**** We do not offer refunds due to the threat of inclement weather. If house becomes uninhabitable due to storm we will issue a refund for those nights. We strongly advise guests to purchase travel insurance that includes protection for tropical storms.

We stay was fabulous! The house was clean and extremely beautiful. The owner was also very quick to respond and answer all our questions, and help us to get the whole stay situated. We had an ocean view and our husbands were close to the Marina to go spearfishing everyday, we had an awesome experience and a great week!

Absolutely amazing. The place certainly lived up to the fact...exceeded the pictures. The owner was super attentive. Always there to answer a question and helpful in all aspects....from arrival to departure. He even provided us with updates on the surf. Who could want for more than that ? The home is basically a compound...perfect for couples and/ or friends that want to relax away from the grind in a home that is designed to take advantage of those hot lazy Mexican afternoons. Definitely will be staying there again. What you get for the cost is off the charts. We lived like kings for 7 days. The place even has air conditioning which in August or September will be a life saver. T.V. is "tuned" in and easy to operate. The kitchen was well stocked and had every convenience you could want. We were sad to leave...cannot wait to go back. The home is MUY BUENO

Would do it all over again

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at 5 Palmas. The property is beautiful and very private. You cannot walk to the beach, but a quick drive down the hill and your are on a beautiful clean beach and mostly have it to yourself. I really appreciated this, because in Cabo or San Jose the beaches have lots of people and you just can't get away from the Mexican vendors trying to sell you something. The beach has huge crashing waves which you can here from the house, but is not conducive to water activities.

The house is all rooms situated off the central courtyard that you see in the main picture. Bedrooms are spacious. Everything is clean and well kept. The owner was quick to respond to any questions we had and took care of things promptly.

I definitely recommend this place if you like to be away from the hubbub and have some peace and quiet. You will get plenty of relaxation and sun hanging out here.

Beautiful hacienda-style villa in private neighborhood Laguna Hills

  • 5 of 5

We've rented several vrbo properties from Bahamas to Costa Rica, Jamaica to Curacao, and this is hands-down the best. Great hacienda style, lots of room and outdoor living, comfortable beds, gorgeous views, quiet and peaceful. Everything is well-appointed, great design, great materials. We loved daily walks through the "desert" neighborhood down to the beautiful beach also. We'd love to return!

Peace and quiet is king. Can't say enough about how lovely it is. Side note, bring mosquito repellant, the last few days they have been annoying. Thank you Josh for sharing your home.

Beautiful property with high end ammenities - amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do the property justice it is, almost unbelievably, more beautiful than the add photos. It took us about 20 minutes of walking around, taking pictures, and oohs and ahs, before we could start to unpack and settle in. Each suite has it's own character and charm - there is no bad room here. The beds, pillows, linens, towels, and all amenities throughout are of the highest quality and add to the overall luxury feeling of the hacienda. The property is removed from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas so you can just chill there, go to the remote beaches nearby, or it is a short drive in to San Joe del Cabo. A car is definitely required as Lugana Hills is, as it's name suggests, very hilly and you are in the desert. Buzzards Bar is a must and Viva Off road rentals (can be contacted from Buzzards) is right near the gate in Laguna Hills and they have amazing off road tours that can be customized for any taste - highly recommended.

As stated in the add, this is a brand new hacienda and as such there were some growing pains that we were aware of going in to the rental, and that Josh has / will be addressing. (minor things, like no blender yet, and the pool heater was acting up, but was looked after immediately and long term fix is in place).

So, all in all, Josh was extremely responsive and helpful from the time we first contacted him until we left. He went out of his way to ensure we were comfortable and that all was in order, making the booking and stay both easy and extremely enjoyable.

I would highly recommend this property and if we have the opportunity to do so, will stay there again.

Thank you Josh!

John & Sandy.
