About the property

5 Bedroom Villa with Ocean Views-5 Baths with Showers, Sleeps 10

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. 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. 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. 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. We also recommend you visit our personalized villa websites for more photos and information.

David & Dianne Stephens - Owners purchased this villa 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 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 and dining facilities. Our community also has two tennis courts and a 2 mile nature walking path that is groomed daily.

Top Shelf all the way!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family could not believe our eyes when we arrived to Casa Contessa. This villa is very custom from head to toe.

We loved the fire pit and enjoyed a few too many bottles of wine while doing so.

Great trip, the best!

Beautiful, well appointed villa. Great for a big group!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 couples really enjoyed our stay at Casa Contessa! The home is lovely with comfortable bedrooms and plenty of space. The kitchen was very well stocked with just about anything you could need. I would highly recommend using the Esperanza spa! It’s one of the best I’ve been to. Also, the pool at the beach club was great for sitting by the pool and ordering lunch. Their sushi was amazing!

I would definitely recommend Casa Contessa to anyone traveling to Cabo! The owners were a pleasure to work with and checked in on us to make sure everything was going ok.

We had a fabulous time at gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous home with a fantastic location. The photos on the listing simply do not do justice to the real beauty and impeccable quality of everything Casa Contessa delivered. Our family agreed that this was our most favorite vacation and we plan to return again this summer. Dianne (the owner) was so nice and helpful and her staff on-site are very professional and attentive. We can’t wait until June to arrive as we are planning to stay in her larger villa Casa Stephens located directly across the street.

WOW!! Exceeded All Expectations...

  • 5 of 5

Casa Contessa is A-W-E-S-O-M-E ! ! Totally exceeded our expectations and the photos do not do this place justice. We were in Cabo for a family retreat and everybody had plenty of space with their own individual bathrooms/showers. Dianne (owner) was very responsive to our requests as well as the staff who work for them. We all enjoyed the BBQ and outdoor kitchen as well as the fire pit in the evenings with a few bottles of wine. Delightful! We will most certainly be back with a larger group next time since the owners have another 6 bedroom villa directly across the street that is also amazing. We have rented other properties in Cabo and around the world and Casa Contessa is #1 by far.

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!!!
