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.
What makes this Villa unique
Punta Ballana is the community where the Esperanza Resort (an Alberge Resort) is located where you and your guests can enjoy and have access to their SPA shopping & dining facilities. Our community also has two tennis courts and a 2 mile nature walking path that is groomed daily.

Third Visit to Casa Stephens - It only gets better every time!
This house is perfection! Nestled on the Southern-Tip of Cabo san Lucas, the location is close enough to shops, restaurants, golf courses, and other attractions yet it offers complete privacy directly on the the Sea of Cortez. The design of the house provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy "Cabo Life", "No Bad Days" at its best. From the beautifully landscaped backyard and infinity salt water pool, you can see whales during season and fish jumping every day as well as cruise ships sailing into the distance. The pool area and swim-up bar in the backyard is the ideal gathering place with such an incredible view and plenty of chairs and tables for eating, drinking, and soaking up the beauty of the surroundings. Every detail from the professional kitchen with that glass-front SubZero fridge down to the Kettler ping pong table is top shelf. The house has classic yet comfortable decor and is designed around an open great room complete with wet bar. The bedrooms are restful retreats with privacy and individually controlled AC systems that will freeze you out of the villa. Our family stayed here two previous times and found everything to exceed expectations once again - we didn't want to leave!
Casa Stephens Birthday Celebration
The accommodation that Casa Stephens offered where clean, beautiful views and terrific open lay out. The first day there we saw many whales and had a fabulous sunrise every morning! The property is very clean and great location to the Beach Club and Esperanza Hotel. Baruch managed all our travel with speed and was always available to answer any questions! The owner Dianne was more then accommodating to all our need. The pictures are true to the home. We would definitely rent this property again.

Wonderful experience renting Casa Stephens in spring 2016!
Many thanks to the Stephens and their local team for helping us with a great spring break experience renting their home in the Esperanza resort in Cabo San Lucas. The house is situated in an ideal location for unobstructed views of the surf, direct access to the beach and all the other resort amenities and this gave us an opportunity to choose different ways of spending time in Cabo all within the Esperanza resort. The accommodations were ideal for a large group and the local staff was responsive when we had specific requests and needs. The rental process was handled professionally, the owners were attentive and phoned upon our arrival to make sure all was well, for a unique experience we highly recommend this option.
Great place to celebrate a birthday!
Just wanted to drop you an email and let you know we had a wonderful stay at Casa Stephens. What a great way to celebrate a birthday! The house is awesome and looks even better in person then it does on the website. I was impressed with the furnishings and the Sonos sound system was a nice bonus. The unobstructed views of the ocean are extraordinary. Baruch was great to work with and took care of everything we needed.
We had several meals at the Casa supplied by Baja Cooking and Catering. If you ever need a chef, Rafael was great and every meal was perfect. He even supplied my birthday cake with one of our dinners. His pricing was extremely reasonable.
When I was planning this trip, I compiled a list five houses that I was interested in renting. Your quick communication and personal attention was a deciding factor in choosing Casa Stephens. I had a chance to drive by two other properties that where high on my list, but neither one of them impressed me more than Casa Stephens. I will definitely be choosing Casa Stephens for future group trips to Cabo.
My wife and I have been coming to Cabo for 18 years and this trip is going to be hard to top.
Incredible vacation homes in Cabo
There might not be two more beautiful homes in Cabo then Casa Stephens and Casa Contessa. We rented both homes for our wedding at the Esperanza this past December. While the Esperanza is gorgeous and hard to beat, you will not be disappointed with Casa Stephens and Casa Contessa. Great views with spacious rooms both houses provide the unique experience of a luxury vacation along with private quality time with family or friends.
The owner Dianne was extremely helpful and accommodating. The ease in which we were able to work with her was a huge relief while juggling all the wedding details.
If you are planning on visiting Cabo with a larger group, you have to consider staying at Casa Stephens or Casa Contessa. We will definitely be back for another amazing stay at these incredible homes with outstanding owners!
Thank you Chelsea! I'm so glad you're wedding and whole vacation went wonderfully and that we could be a small part of it. We look forward to working with you again in the future :)
Fantastic location with outdoor activities such as tennis, sea shell and sea glass hunting, walking and running trails, full food and drink services at our ocean-front, members only Beach Club all only a 5 minute walk from the villa.
