About David & Dianne Stephens - Owners
Please keep in mind this Google Map is approx. 6 years old..you can see on this map that our villa was actually under construction. Nearly all 52 lots now have villas built on them and our community is sold-out. David & Dianne Stephens..They met while attending college and competing in Track & Field for Cal State Northridge. David competed in the Javelin Throw and High Jump and Dianne ran the 10,000 Meters. They both graduated in 1986 and in 1987 moved to Knoxville Tennessee where Dianne earned her Masters Degree in Exercise Physiology and David coached and trained UT High Jumpers and Javelin Throwers. Dianne is an ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine) certified personal trainer...let us know if you want to take a small group to Cabo for a 'Top Shelf' fitness vacation. David continued his Track & Field career and competed for Adidas and the New York Athletic Club internationally from 1987 through 1996 making several USA teams including 1988 and 1996 Olympic Teams.

David & Dianne Stephens - Owners purchased this Villa in 2006
Why David & Dianne Stephens - Owners chose Cabo San Lucas
In January of 1994, we vacationed in Cabo for the first time and stayed at the Melia. When we left Virginia that January, the temperature was 5 degrees. Needless to say, we needed some warm weather. When we arrived in Cabo, the temperature was 82 degrees and was perfect during the week of our stay. We were so impressed with the friendly people, food, weather, and golf courses that we purchased a time share where we locked-in week one (first week January) every year. Every January from 1994 through 2006, we vacationed in Cabo without missing a single year. After loads of research and visits to various communities, we purchased the perfect lot within the Punta Ballena development to build our dream villa and future retirement home. Our back-yard (pool deck, three bedrooms and living room) faces directly South into the Sea of Cortez and has a complete unobstructed ocean view. Additionally, Punta Ballena offered state of the art infrastructure, security, fantastic amenities and close proximity to the town of Cabo...yet, far enough away. With Cabo Del Sol Golf Course one exit down. This championship layout is praised by Nicklaus himself for having the “three finest finishing holes in all of golf.” The 5th and signature 17th holes are currently ranked among “The 500 Best Holes in the World” according to Golf Magazine. Additionally, Cabo offered close proximity to the United States and we believe that when our children are grown with our grandchildren, they will want to visit us in Cabo because of our weather, location, safety and 5 additional bedrooms. We are looking forward to those days. Now that we have the villa, we enjoy Cabo several times each year. In 2008, we had 8 trips...we just love the place.

WOW!! What a great place!!!
Casa Stephens is out of this world. The pool is Very Large and the villa is designed for entertaining as the entire back of the house (two master bedrooms and living room between) all have pocket doors. This created a huge area!! The swim-up bar was utilized hourly and provided shade, WiFi service and whale watching. Working with the owner Dianne was great...so kind and helpful. Casa Stephens exceeded all expectations and so did the ocean front Beach Club and Gym. Thank you for sharing your wonderful villa!! We will be back!
Great, great property!
Wonderful property, wonderful experience! The Stephens are great people to work with - no issues at all and they make it easy! The property itself is exactly what you expect from the pictures and descriptions - we had 5 couples down there to celebrate a joint birthday party, and it was the perfect setting for us. The only small item to note was that there is a bit of construction on a new house going on below Casa Stephens, that you can see and hear a little bit..I must emphasize though that while this is noticeable, it did not impact our enjoyment or the quality of the trip. All in all, a wonderful trip, and we would definitely rent from the Stephens again, and specifically, we would definitely return to this place again!
my family of 7 stayed in this home in mid january 2016. The home was wonderful!! The views were exceptional. The location was perfect being a short drive to town and a short walk to the owners beach club. The furnishings were what you would expect from a 4 star hotel. The staff was great and handled our every request promptly and efficiently without being overbearing. The owners were also so welcoming. They even called after we arrived to make sure everything was perfect....and it was!!! We can't wait to come back!
Thank you Bob! You were so wonderful to work with! I'm glad we helped make your family vacation memorable and that you loved our home. We hope to see you in the future :)
Fantastic House! Highly Recommend Casa Stephens.
We had six couples stay here over Presidents Day weekend. The house really is perfect. From the second we walked in to the moment we departed, everyone was raving about the house.
The location is great with sweeping ocean views. We saw whales from the porch every day. The house feels very private with no houses between you and the ocean. The outdoor area (pool, hot tub, ping pong table, lounging chairs, couches, outdoor grill, palapa) was a perfect place spend the day and relax. The residence also has access to a private beach club, which includes a gym and a restaurant.
The interior of the house is luxurious and every detail has been considered. The kitchen has fantastic appliances and is a great place to cook a big group breakfast or dinner. It had everything we needed, including a Vitamix blender for morning smoothies. The bedrooms are large, comfortable, are individually climate controlled and all have their own bathrooms.
The owner and her staff were incredibly helpful. They pre-stocked the house with groceries and snacks (that we ordered) so we did not need to use vacation time shopping. They also arranged meals, taxis, a fishing trip and had a chef prepare meals for us in the house. They were incredibly friendly and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great vacation.
I would recommend this property without hesitation. We had an amazing weekend and will definitely be staying here again next year.
I rented this villa for my bridesmaids when I got married at the Esperanza next door. We also rented the Stephens other home next door, Casa Contessa, for the groomsmen. From the second we got there, everyone was completely wowed by the villa, the view, the amenities and the service.
