About the property

Casa Contessa is full of custom features including designer hacienda style furniture, oils, water colors, antique hacienda tapestries & other fine art work throughout the villa. From the moment you arrive you quickly understand the choice you made was spot-on. Your entry is greated by a gentle waterfall that lands softly into the entry pool that lies under the stone walkway leading to the villa front door. It doesn't end there...once inside, hand placed stone designs are inlayed into the floor as you look over the living room and custom kitchen. Professional kitchen appliances from the cooktop to the Vitamix professional blender to blend the perfect cocktail. Think you've seen it all ...not even close! Custom, oversized exterior copper lanterns from "Carolina Lanterns" company light the entryway, pool deck and patio areas. Over 90% of the back of the villa facing the pool, patios and ocean are pocket doors that create the best indoor-outdoor living space available offering an additional 4,500 SQFT of entertaining & purpose-built outdoor living spaces. As you continue to High-Five your lucky guests and walk out to the pool area, your imagination runs wild as you watch the water gently running down the stone waterfall from the jacuzzi to the pool, only to fall over the zero edge infinity pool. For those water-wing kids (or those adults that want to sit in the pool with a cocktail), the 10 inch deep water platform is perfect for general lounging. Getting cold? Spark-up the stone wrapped, private fire pit surrounded by built-in cushioned seating for 10. Getting hungry? The outdoor kitchen is next to the fire pit creates the perfect gathering area around the outdoor teak dining table for the masses. Casa Contessa is outfitted with 4 HD Sharp Flatscreens (the living room screen is 70'!!) connected to HD Dish Network as well as BlueRay DVD players, Sonos home stereo of course and AppleTV. Casa Contessa's seven living areas are complete with individual air conditioners allowing guests to custom set their living environment. Maid and Concierge Service is included as well as pre-shopping and private round-trip transportation from the San Jose Airport to the villa. Top-shelf linens and toiletries will impress your guests on day one. One of the Master Bedrooms offer a very private outdoor shower experience. This outdoor shower is surrounded by flowers and rich plants to enhance your relationship with nature. For those who like relaxing in a tub, Casa Contessa's hand-hammered Copper Bathtub's in both Master Bedrooms meet the challenge. If you want to relax at our full service Members only Beachfront Beach Club, within your 5 minute walk you will arrive at the most beautiful setting in Cabo. Full service staff will have your favorite drink in hand within minutes. Kids hungry?...Hamburgers, Hotdogs, Chicken Fingers are on the menu. For those more healthy eaters, Fresh Fish of the day & Salads are made to your liking. Our guests can make reservations at the World Famous Alberge Spa offering an assortment of custom body treatments as well as reservations to the Esperanza resturants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Esperanza pools and gym access are not permitted. However, full access to our Members only Beach Club and Gym is provided to our guests. Our Members Only Ocean Front Pool, Beach Club and Gym is preferred over those of Esperanza. If you are looking for a custom villa with the charm of Hacienda style decorations, Casa Contessa answers the call.

Casa Contessa is a Single Level Custom Villa located 100 yards from the ocean providing 5 private bedrooms, each complete with private bathroom and shower. All 5 bedrooms are 'REAL' bedrooms, not an office converted into a 'Bedroom' where those guest must use a shower in another bedroom. Don't be misled, ask for specific dimensions and details of each bedroom.

If additional space is required, Casa Stephens, located across the street offers an additional 6 bedrooms (search on VRBO for Casa Stephens #206885) for a total of 11 private bedrooms! Imagine the flexibility and convenience of having two villas across the street from one another to place those guests that need separation.

Incredible home! We can’t wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from a week long stay at Casa Contessa. There was 9 of us(5 adults and 4 children). This was my fourth time staying in Cabo with my family and it was by far the best! The home is gorgeous and the pool and jacuzzi were absolutely phenomenal! Dianne was a gem to work with and she called us the night we arrived to see how things were going. The concierge Baruch was extradionary!!! He brought us groceries, set up transportation, and even coordinated for us to have a Thanksgiving dinner prepared for us by a chef. Noeme the housekeeper was very friendly and did a wonderful job keeping the home clean during our stay. The Punta Ballena Beach Club as always is incredible! We will be back soon! Thank you Dianne and David!

Exceeded all of our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Cabo staying at Casa Contessa was the most relaxing memorable vacation to date. Our dear friends rented Casa Stephens and we were lucky to rent Casa Contessa a stones throw away. We brought our two teenage daughters and they each brought a friend. The concierge service was fabulous and he helped us arrange the most fabulous excursions. My younger daughter used the wifi and completed an online course so everyone was HAPPY. The bedrooms were spacious and everyone was happy. We ended up doing quite a bit of walking around the property and enjoyed all the amenities. The gym, restaurants and features of the Esperanza were fabulous. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family!!!

Our family of six adults stayed at Casa Contessa in mid February, and thoroughly enjoyed it! The home is beautiful, immaculate, spread out enough to afford privacy for all, and has everything you could need. The outdoor space is ideal, and the neighborhood and surrounding resort is quiet and very safe. Based on reviews I read, we arranged for a golf cart, which was waiting for us upon arrival. We used it daily, and it proved very convenient for trips to the resort restaurants, pool, and the residents' beach club. The pools at both the beach club and the resort were beautiful and surprisingly uncrowded. The concierge arranged for rental cars as well, and the agency delivered the vehicles to the villa, and picked them up on our last day there. The concierge provided information on activities in advance, and we booked some of the suggested activities. We had an excellent meal prepared for us at the villa by a staff of four. We scheduled a sunset photography session on the beach at Esperanza with Sara Richardson, a local Cabo phtotographer. I highly recommend her, she is lovely ( Four of us went on a walking foodie tour with approximately 7 stops and enjoyed it (Juan More Taco). I can't imagine a more perfect rental experience. Dianne has set the bar high!

Fabulous family get-away!!!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Casa Contessa in March with family friends. Diane was beyond helpful in the months and weeks leading up to the vacation, offering suggestions for dining and activities for our kids age. The property was beautiful and exquisitely maintained. The bedrooms are decorated extremely well and everything is well stocked. The Xbox and of course the pool were favorites with the kids and they enjoyed s'mores at the fire pit and eating outside every day. One thing I recommend is getting a golf cart. We drove all around and the kids thought this was great fun. It is definitely walkable but with kids (who regularly forget things at the house) it was useful and fun. The whole resort felt so safe and friendly. We walked a lot, played tennis, spent time at the gorgeous beach club and did a lot off property too. Diane and concierge Baruch were always reachable for any questions or problems and we felt very welcomed by them. It was a great time and we would definitely return. Thanks Diane and crew!

Fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time in Cabo and the first time we went the VRBO route. There were 10 of us (5 couples) that stayed at Casa Stephens and all I can say is "Wow!" The property was fantastic--clean, well stocked and with pretty much the best view of the ocean you can ask for. We were whale watching from our patio/pool/hot tub sipping cocktails! The owners and concierge, Baruch, were very easy to work with and very attentive to our needs. We took advantage of the "in-home" spa service (3 massages, 2 facials and a pedicure) and also had an excellent experience with that company. We had another company come in and cook for us one night and that was great as well--prep, cooking and clean up all done for you! The concierge can facilitate all of that with ease. Overall, I high recommend this house (as well as access to a stunning beach club and access to the upper pools as Esperanza) and we all hope to make it back there soon!

David, Dianne and their 5 children now reside in Northern Virginia where David is the Chief Sales Officer of NeXovation, Inc. and Dianne runs their vacation rental business.

David & Dianne Stephens - Owners purchased this house in 2011

Why David & Dianne Stephens - Owners chose Cabo San Lucas

We purchased Casa Contessa due to its close proximity to our other Villa, Casa Stephens, its high-end finishes and to handle larger groups that want to stay close to each other. Case Contessa is directly across the street from Casa Stephens.

What makes this house 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 and dining facilities. Our community also has two tennis courts and a 2 mile nature walking path that is groomed daily.
