Beachfront Boutique 2 Story Villa, 3 Bedrooms/2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4 to 6
Just returned from our recent Sampaguita HOA AGM, restock and maintenance trip to the Baja. The Baja is booming with development and construction in the Los Cabos region full speed ahead. A new vacation condominium development has started up at the Hotel Road and just a 5 minute walk from the Sampaguita Gates behind Plaza Caracol... the last lot they say on the Hotel Row! Lots of road work everywhere, new stores and restaurants. The weather was amazing and hot! For Sampaguita Owners receiving our Mexican property titles this year was monumental, and who knows if you love Sampaguita and are interested in owning there may be one or two of the private Villas for sale.
Downtown San José del Cabo is also being reinvigorated after Tropical Storm Lidia last year. I ate at some of our favourite restaurants and discovered some terrific new locations, art galleries and more in San José del Cabo, after the day's work. Everything is ready for future guests to Sampaguita Villa 6 in the land of never-ending sun and margaritas! We want to thank our many repeat and new friends/visitors for sharing Villa 6 and treating it as their home on the Baja.
The Sampaguita property updates to the tennis court including the addition of Pickle Ball are complete and already popular with owners and guests alike. As well, lights added to the front Beach Wall are beautiful at night and of course provide additional property security. Ongoing improvements to Villa 6 including a brand new A/C and many minor updates, etc. We previously added to the ambiance of the villa with some traditional, updated and new wall pieces including an original oil painting 'Four' by local artist Ivan Guaderrama in the living room (check out his gallery in San José del Cabo ). Telmex updated the Sampaguita property to a fibre optic network, and I added a state of the art extender to boost signal strength upstairs (and inadvertently all the way to the pool). There is NO charge for the Wi-Fi and calls made on the Villa telephone to the USA and Canada are now free from Mexico. We also added an HD PVR in the upstairs master bedroom. We truly hope everyone enjoys the ongoing improvements.
The La Comer shopping centre and grocery store just a 5 minute walk from the Sampaguita gates has been fully updated and has many new stores. More new stores and restaurants continue to be constructed along the hotel boulevard, e.g., Tommy Bahamas+. For a truly once in a lifetime experience, the newest Cabo Dolphins eco-dolphin aquatic centre is only 2 blocks away. Our favourite gym, Cabo Fitness, has moved just down the road in the Zona Hotelera (maybe a 10 minute walk now) in Plaza Pescador and is still making improvements. The view from the third level and open air work out environment is great!
Our two storey 3-bedroom/2-bathroom Mexican Villa is centrally air-conditioned and offers over 1,719 sq. ft., including a private patio living space that is only 75 steps to the beach. Sampaguita is a quiet, exclusive security gated community of 14 beachfront homes. Amenities also include a walk in open shower in the spacious upper floor master bathroom, and a private 2nd floor terrace with authentic Mexican leather equipale chairs and an ocean/beach view. The main floor offers ceiling fans in a large open concept living and dining area, Canadian satellite HDTV (includes a full compliment of US channels) with an HD PVR (so you don't miss any sun and sand time) and telephone/NO charge WiFi internet, all for relaxing after a day on the beach.
The fully stocked kitchen includes all appliances; a new stainless steel fridge c/w 3 step water filtration system, stove/oven and microwave combination, new dishwasher, small appliances, utensils and most importantly a blender for those cool afternoon cocktails. The villa has large dining areas comfortable for 6, both inside and on the private ocean view terraza with a new Weber gas BBQ.
We have convenient back door/main entrance parking and/or guest parking close by. The two bedrooms on the main floor share a bathroom with a large walk-in shower. The 3-bedroom home includes 1 king, 1 queen and 1 queen and 1 twin sofa bed in a roomy converted Mexican decor garage bedroom. All bedrooms have floor and/or ceiling fans for your added comfort. The main floor also has an apartment sized washer and dryer.
The Lifestyle (Quiet Families Only!)
Well manicured grounds, that were completely re landscaped in 2013-15 into a mixed eco-friendly desert scape, offer beautiful tropical palms and include; 2 heated swimming pools, jacuzzi, tennis courts, a fire pit at the beach’s edge for the moonlit evenings, access to miles of white sand unspoiled beaches (Playa Hotelera), beautiful sunrises and spectacular views of the Sea of Cortez. It is not uncommon to watch manta rays skimming the waves, schools of dolphins and porpoises playing out front or whales passing by.
A full service shopping centre with food stores and one of the Baja's newest Starbucks, many restaurants and the Cabo Fitness Centre are within walking distance (5 to 15 minutes maximum). Costco, Walmart and other big box stores are only a short drive on the route to Cabo San Lucas (25-30 minutes).
The mission San José del Cabo was founded in 1730, and the quaint town of San José del Cabo offers varied and exquisite local cuisine, a vibrant and engaging art community and a peaceful and relaxing historic village atmosphere. The centre of San José del Cabo is a 30+ minute walk or US$7 (70 MXN Pesos) cab ride from Sampaguita. In other words, our villa is centrally located in the main hotel area and on the Playa Hotelera (Hotel Beach) like all the major hotels.
In contrast, Cabo San Lucas offers well-known names and tourist attractions such as, the famous Land’s End Arch, crafts shopping on the Marina stroll or at the upscale Puerto Paraiso mall (which includes a luxury shopping wing extraordinaire), sea doo’s, deep sea fishing, punta and water taxi boat tours to Playa del Amor (Lover's Beach), tequila and all the Medano Beach Mexican parties and entertainment you could want. Between Cabo and San Jose, known as Los Cabos or the tourist Corridor, are secluded beaches and snorkeling spots, several world class golf courses and adventure activities such as zip lines and dune buggies in the desert foothills.

About Garfield C. Johnson
My wife and I grew up between the North Shore mountains of beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and the Pacific Ocean's Howe Sound. Our young family was fortunate enough to enjoy many years and happy memories on the beaches of Maui. In 1996, my father and his wife began our Mexican Baja adventure by staying in the quaint town of San José del Cabo. A walk on the long Playa Hotelera on the Sea of Cortez led to a new Mexican Villa. Ever since our family has enjoyed what I refer to as the Kaanapali of Mexico - Los Cabos - stretching from the bustling centre of Cabo San Lucas along the lush tourist corridor to quiet San José del Cabo. We hope you'll choose to enjoy all that the Baja has to offer, as we have. Garfield and Judith, Deep Cove, British Columbia, B.C. Canada

Why Garfield C. Johnson chose Zona Hotelera
Sampaguita Villas is a very quiet complex on miles of unspoiled beaches and with clear blue ocean, friendly hospitable Mexican people, never ending hours of sun, the tranquillity of San José del Cabo with its amazing restaurants and art scene, and the constant energy and fun of Cabo San Lucas a short distance away.
What makes this Villa unique
Quiet, private, boutique lifestyle on the beach in a 14 villa gated community. Please Note: Several of the Owners are retired and stay on the property from about November through April and therefore only quiet families will likely enjoy the property!

Fabulous weel at the beach
Sampaguita Villa #6 was a wonderfully relaxing place to spend a week with the family enjoying the sunshine, the beach and the pool. It was close to everything we needed and well appointed for a relaxing break. We were welcomed when we arrived, and had a fantastic time.
Quiet, Convenient and Comfortable
This is our second stay at this property. If you are looking for a comfortable, quiet place to relax, yet close enough to downtown San Jose del Cabo, this is it. We had another wonderful stay.
A little piece of paradise
We spent two weeks at the villa and enjoyed ourselves immensely. We loved the small size of the property (only 14 units) so it was very quiet and right on the beach. We watched the sunrise and sunset almost every night from the fire pit. We were lucky to watch a few whales go by as well as lots of fish, birds and flora. The gardens and pools were very well maintained. The villa itself was well clean and well appointed. We cooked almost every night as there is an excellent grocery store within walking distance although we also tried out a few restaurants nearby which were also excellent. All of us agreed that we would love to go back.
Peaceful, beautiful grounds, friendly neighbors, close to everything.
Wonderful location and well maintained
Our villa was well equipped and well looked after. Close to stores and beautiful grounds
We had a wonderful time there, the villa is so beautiful and comfortable.
We loved every single place we visited around Los Cabos.
We loved staying at Sampanguita villas just as much as we loved the beach there. It's like being in paradise!
We really hope we could go again any time soon
Local soccer pitch/arena/playground close by. Mega grocery store and mall with Starbucks a two block walk. Many great restaurants (Mexican, Organic, American and Italian) within a 15 minute walk in the Zona Hotelera (Hotel Zone). The Cabo Dolphins Eco Park is now open about a block away. For a truly once in a lifetime experience swim with the dolphins!
