About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Casa Los Amigos is a luxury hacienda located in the ultra-exclusive, gated community of Puerto Los Cabos. Just 20 minutes from Los Cabos International airport and situated very close to historic downtown San Jose del Cabo, you will vacation close to the area's most acclaimed dining and shopping. Our hacienda’s main living area features expansive glass doors that open to breathtaking views of the Sea of Cortez. Inside the walls of this impressive home is a romantic old-world courtyard -- featuring a large soothing water fountain and beautiful palm and fruit trees. The house’s fully-equipped gourmet kitchen offers you options to dine or cater in while enjoying the art of cooking. Click on 'Links to More Information' near the bottom of this VRBO listing for a virtual tour at our custom web site.

All of the bedrooms in the home are separated in the traditional hacienda style, blending quiet privacy with a spectacular central living, dining and entertaining area. Bathrooms feature travertine and tumbled marble appointments. Two master suites, each with a handcrafted king bed, have indoor and outdoor showers looking out to the Sea of Cortez. Each of the home's additional guest rooms feature a pair of beautiful Spanish-inspired queen beds and full dual-vanity bathrooms. The home’s attached casita has a one-of-a-kind, old-world king bed inspired by the massive doors of mainland Mexico, as well as a sitting room with a queen-size leather sleeper sofa. The living room features a 67 inch, 1080p high-definition television with five-speaker surround sound. The integrated indoor/outdoor multi-zone sound system features a bevy of music options, to include CD, Satellite Radio, ipod docking capability, and an extensive digitally stored music library.

During the day, enjoy the home’s dramatic infinity edge pool with its in-water lounging area as well as its swim-up four stool palapa bar. In the evenings, relax in the hot tub, or watch the sunset and star-gaze from the fully furnished roof-top terrace.

The hacienda sits in the same development as two of the area's most highly regarded championship golf courses, one designed by Greg Norman and the other by Jack Nicklaus. This course was recently rated the 17th best track in all of Mexico and the Caribbean--directly behind Cabo del Sol at #16.

While visiting Casa Los Amigos, make sure to check out the new 450-slip luxury marina and fishing village, which are located within the Puerto Los Cabos resort community. The marina offers daily deep-sea fishing, sailing, and whale-watching excursions, as well as fresh seafood caught and sold by area fishermen. Several world-class fishing tournaments are run out of this impressive, full-service marina. Excellent restaurants and a Dolphin Swim Experience provide you other fun options.

If you choose to venture outside Puerto Los Cabos, San Jose Del Cabo and its highly renowned restaurants and shopping are just outside the main entrance of this very special vacation property.

Our seaside beach club and restaurant is just a five-minute walk from the house. The club's infinity-edge pool, spa services and exceptional wait staff provide another compelling reason to never leave the property--just kick back and enjoy. Our club’s fitness center offers strength machines and various aerobic equipment. The Club also offers surfing lessons, yoga classes, and beach activities for young children. It's a perfect and private place for adults or families to enjoy the surf and sun.

This very special home provides 5-star accommodations for your holiday with everything from a quiet, relaxing luxury vacation in relative solitude to an entertainment-focused week with friends and family – this is the perfect Los Cabo vacation home. Regardless of how you use this magnificent home, you can remain connected to work, news, and sports via our high-speed wireless Internet and main room satellite television system. Local and long-distance phone connections are provided as part of your rental.

We also provide superb concierge services for entertaining --everything from a private chef or in-home massage and spa services, to arranging private tours or activities -- whatever you’d like to experience during a vacation you won’t soon forget.

About Craig Carpenter

This property is owned by the Carpenter Family, who have been coming to Cabo for over 20 years and recently fell in love with the Puerto Los Cabos community. While at the house, we enjoy the challenging golf course, the beautiful Beach Club, dining at nearby Flora Farms, exploring the authentic artistic community of San Jose del Cabo, but mostly just relaxing by the pool and taking in the views of The Sea of Cortez.

Craig Carpenter purchased this house in 2015

Guestbook comments from the owner

There is only one word for Casa de los Amigos: SPECTACULAR! Get ready to fall in love with the real Cabo! We did!

We began our vacation by exiting the plane and going directly into The Marlin Pool, and as we looked out saw a stunning overlook high above the dramatic Sea of Cortez. We could swim up to the bar and have a drink while we absorbed the white puffy clouds moving above us over crisp blue skies, and as we did we really felt daily stress leaving and relaxation beginning. The pool has an ultra cool sunning shelf with a few inches of water that allows you to stay cool while you get rays or just relax. The day and night swims with jacuzzi truly were fantastically fun, we really felt completely relaxed ready to stay for weeks and my husband and I really wanted to invite more friends to come and fall in love just like we did!

Architecturally the house is perfect -- beautiful, expansive, spacious and quiet -- and we had a full house of 12! The kitchen floor and textures are artfully chosen, all in the round, detailed with gorgeous tile, granite, marble with pebbles inlaid encircling the kitchen. Very easy to manage and move from one area to the other as you need. You'll fall in love with adorable Maggie, who is ready to cook your breakfast or fix fabulous guacamole and pico de gallo complete with her own homemade chips! Ice, wine bar, refrigerator, all is just ready for the next fortunate guest, truly. We didn't lack for a thing. The owners really provide everything you want and much, much more. The home is perfect for any group of any size, we loved the exquisite details of elegance with simplicity. The bathrooms and bedrooms are first class, we loved the comfort, the charm. Furnishings and art pieces are keenly placed, beautifully chosen and fit with a charming decor of Mexico. The fountains are fabulous too complete with a fire pit that you can easily turn on or off.

We enjoyed the club, complete with a large infinity pool where you can lunch with a rolling surf at high tide. My husband and I both had massages and wow! The chef from the club fixed one meal for us a birthday surprise for my cousin. The shrimp was prepared to perfection.

The entire experience was not just special, it was unforgettable.

A great experience from beginning to end

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Carpenter house to celebrate our fiftieth wedding anniversary with our immediate family. We were 9 adults and two teenagers. The bedroom configurations were perfect- large and well appointed. Comfortable beds and extremely quiet. With so much to do in San Jose del Cabo, the pool, the beach club facilities, we fell into bed exhausted every night (some of us earlier than others 😉? ).

We took advantage of the management companies cooking services for our first and last nights- the ladies cooked up a feast for us the first night and there we enough leftovers for at least two lunches. The last night we limited our order to two entrees and every one was fully sated. Very good cooks!

The pool was the center of activity, and between it and the cornhole game, the foosball, and the ping pong table, we enjoyed the facilities to the hilt. We even watched whales from the pool deck with the supplied binoculars.

Yanet, the property manager was very helpful and very responsive to our questions/ requests.

A couple of nits to pick:

Because we were arriving on three different planes and renting cars at the airport, Yanet arranged to meet us at the house. It was difficult for my daughter to get through the two security gates without knowing the information the guards required. (We knew, but were still in the air). It was partly our fault, because we hadn’t told our daughter the magic words, but on the other hand, we didn’t know the words were magic. Really no harm, no foul. And it added to our sense of security knowing we were protected.

Second nit: if there is an on-site supply of toilet paper, we didn’t find it and had to make a store run. Montezumas revenge was a contributing factor.

Final complaint, and this isn’t a nit at all. There is a step down between the dining/sitting deck and the pool deck. Unfortunately both decks are made of the same stone, and it is too easy to miss the difference it elevation, particularly in dim light. Two of us fell (alchohol may have been involved😉?) ; luckily there were no serious injuries. That step needs to be marked with yellow paint.

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we wanted and desired, there was plenty of space for people to be able to come and go. The beach club is amazing. The private beach with free use of kayaks and paddleboards was perfect. The owners, property managers were very responsive. Definitely recommend getting a car if you plan on going to town more than a couple times, it was very easy to drive around. Place is as good if not better than advertised, tha ks Craig and Noelle!!
