We all love everything about El Encanto de la Laguna #9!!! The house is really pretty, even better than the online pictures, very clean, confortable, nice decoration, well equipped and really nice located; very impressed!! The house is not only excellent but the concierge service is even better; Allilat was there for us from the moment we made the reservation to the day we left without been too much. She arranged our cars, kayaks, paddle boards and crib rental; the chef service we had for breakfast everyday and few dinners were amazing, all organic ingredients and all prepared from scratch in the house, excellent service!! We had excellent and very professional massages in the house; all arranged by Allilat. The house is located in a very nice quiet area that we loved; the house is ocean from and the water is beautiful blue, the beach was really nice to walk. We recommend this place and their services 100%..

What a great place to stay! The home is as advertised and more. When we arrived the place was in perfect order and clean from top to bottom and pool and hot tub worked perfectly as well. The home was tastefully decorated and had every comfort you could want. Prior to our coming Alilat, (the concierge) arranged our fishing trip, golf, and massages at the home for the girls. She was easy to reach and communicate with while there. She is very kind and responsive but not overbearing at all (very unintrusive). We took our family of ten of which included an infant and a two year old. The accommodations were perfect for that number of people. The home is far enough away to be secluded and yet close enough to Cabo that it was not a inconvenience to travel. The beach is pristine and rarely did we see many people on the beach so it felt very private. We spent a lot of our time at the home because it was so relaxing and enjoyable. After catching fish we asked Alilat if she could arrange a chef to prepare it along with other traditional Mexican items for our last evening. He and his assistant were amazing. The food was a hit. In addition, it was my sons and his wife's anniversary so the chef prepared a table on the beach for them. The setting was very romantic and perfect for the two of them as the sun was setting. We also ate at Flora Farms, close by, and loved the atmosphere. The home, location on the beach, and setting helped to make our trip there a wonderful family experience and memory!

The best time ever!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know where to begin with what a lovely time we had. It was my Friend's 50th Birthday.

There were 10 of us and we had special permission for this amount of people. We were more than comfortable and the home was exceedingly spacious. The decor was light and airy (but not sterile in anyway), contemporary and very tasteful.

The patio (with infinity pool and hot tub!!!) offered privacy and stunning travel book views. The beach was quiet and the ocean crystal blue. We walked to a local restaurant the first night, the second night had a dinner catered and the third night to a local organic farm in San Jose Del Cabo.

... and we had a massage spa come to the house....

The hosts were easy to work with and we had a remarkable time. It was restful and beautiful.

If you want crazy night life - this is perhaps not for you. We wanted good friends, a stunning setting, pools and ocean this is for you.

Beachfront luxury

  • 5 of 5

Directly on a terrific uncrowded beach. Great to have the sound of the crashing waves as a constant background - no need for a white noise machine here!

Great location - 10 min drive from San Jose but removed from the hustle & bustle of the corridor. Also (somewhat) convenient to Cabo Pulmo and great snorkeling and diving.

Excellent kitchen, beds, wifi, entertainment system, TV with US broadcast.

Concierge very responsive when needed, but, unlike several other villas we've stayed in, was unintrusive and allowed us to have the quiet, private vacation we were seeking.

Incredible Beach Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls' getaway and the time of our lives! From the gated community to the stunning property and decor of Casa Maya, we enjoyed every second. The balconies, infinity pool, jacuzzi, swim up bar, and lounge chairs on the deck all offer incredible views of the Sea of Cortez! We walked to the beach every day, swam, searched for shells and went for long walks and runs. We had 10 people and there was plenty of space - luxurious accommodations with every comfort of home- gourmet kitchen, large dining tables inside and out, and endless supply of beach towels for the luxury resort atmosphere! Can't wait to return for whale watching.

What an outstanding trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough! From the service before even getting there to the day to day service once on the trip, it was an amazing trip and we are going back to the same place just because of it.

Alilat was incredible! Our original trip was cancelled due to a possible hurricane as not only did they work through that but made the actual trip even better. She was everything you want in a person setting things up via email and phone. Always kind and willing to get it done!

The private Chef Harialberto was incredible. Each meal was better then the last. He was there for every meal and the final meal was incredible. It was for my wife's birthday and he went over the top. It was healthy, well prepared and each meal thought out.

Lastly the home itself. It is the best home within the community.

Cant say enough and could go one for hours. Incredible home, outstanding people, unbelievable chef!

San José del Cabo it’s a beautiful and charming town located just 7 miles from El Encanto de la Laguna, with many good restaurants, shops and world class galleries.

The Marina in San Jose del Cabo is just 3 miles away. It has a beautiful design and construction. Its full operation unfolds as more boats utilize the facility for activities like sportfishing, whale watching or simply cruising the sparkling sea.

Beginning just north of San José where El Encanto de la Laguna is located, the East Cape stretches nearly a hundred miles along the Sea of Cortés eastward and northward past Los Barriles. This beautiful stretch of desert coastline is still mostly undeveloped, however the towns of Los Barriles and Buena Vista are thriving fishing and tourist communities offering lodging and local cuisine. The East Cape is also the windsurfing center of Los Cabos, as well as being home to the more remote Cabo Pulmo which draws divers to the most northerly coral reef in the Pacific.
