About Fred Faltersack, Owner - Amanda Payne - Property Manager

I've spent half my life traveling throughout mainland Mexico and the Baja. Once I landed in Cabo, I never left. Completed in 2010, Villa Marcella represents my dream home and should you choose to stay, it will be an experience like no other, one that you will hopefully want to repeat time and time again.

Fred Faltersack, Owner - Amanda Payne - Property Manager purchased this villa in 2010

Why Fred Faltersack, Owner - Amanda Payne - Property Manager chose Pedregal

The Pedregal is an upscale gated community which is in short walking distance from downtown Cabo San Lucas. Villa Marcella is located on the quiet Pacific side of the Pedregal where the only sound is that of the ocean waves crashing on the shore.

What makes this villa unique

The Pedregal is the #1 upscale residential community in Cabo San Lucas. Walk out the door of Villa Marcella and your toes are in the pristine Pedregal Beach where you can take romantic walks down the shoreline, jog the 1 mile stretch of beach, fish from the shore for Rooster fish, or just grab your book and read while relaxing in your beach chair under the umbrella or Coconut Palm with a delicious cold beverage of your choice in your hand.

Stunning Mansion on the Sand- Truly Created our Fairytale Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Like many others, my wife & I were married at Villa Marcella in June. It was literally the most amazing day anyone could have possibly asked for. We had exactly 100 guests and it was plenty of room for everyone. We even had multiple guests tell us it was the best wedding they've been to, BY FAR. The staff was amazing the whole trip, and we opted for the chef services. Benjamin made us breakfast every morning at the time we requested. Don't sleep on the French Toast! The best thing about this villa though is Amanda, she was out of this world helpful. We relied on her throughout the whole process, and she was very responsive & always went out of her way to make sure our stay was perfect. We still keep in touch with her today & have even discussed hanging out next time we're in the Bay Area. We rented the other two villas as well for our guests, and they all had rave reviews themselves. They even make comments about how we have to do a reunion trip in the future. I cannot say enough good things about our experience, and I can personally guarantee that you will not find a better venue in Cabo San Lucas if you're trying for an intimate, beach wedding.

The Perfect Wedding Venue.. and a Fantastic place to Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were married at Villa Marcella and it was the most magical experience of my life. The views are breathtaking- perfect golden sand, beautifully shaped boulders, and miles of open ocean. If you are looking for a wedding venue, look no further, you will not find a better place. We had a barefoot beach ceremony, and have stunning photos of the waves rippling behind us. There is plenty of room around the pool for the reception, and a great spot for a dance floor as well. We had 75 people and there was plenty of room. Aside from being the most beautiful wedding venue, Villa Marcella, Descanso and Gran Vista are all amazing places to just vacation with friends and family. We rented Descanso and Gran Vista for a week as well for our guests, and every single person said it was perfect in both accommodation and service. Adrian is the main caretaker of Villa Marcella and he is a kind, generous and personable man. And he is an incredible chef! We hosted group dinners before the wedding for our guests, and Adrian and the other caretakers cooked for everyone, and their dishes were really outstanding. His jumbo shrimp was to die for! If you stay here, you should absolutely have them cook for you. Having the staff was wonderful- they did the perfect job at gaging when we needed their help and when we needed privacy. The villa itself is spectacular. We called it the marble palace. And lastly, Amanda, the manager of the villa is the most helpful, responsive person I have ever dealt with. She told me last fall she would help me along the way since this was also my wedding venue, and she went way above and beyond responding to obscure questions from guests that I passed along to putting up signs on each door stating the name of the room, and much much more. She is an incredibly easy person to work with, which I think is a huge reason to also consider this for if not your wedding venue, than a great vacation spot. Best place I’ve ever stayed, hands down.

Exceptional service and even better accommodations - First Class!

  • 5 of 5

Fred and his staff were awesome to work with - I could tell I was dealing with a first class operation on my initial inquiry. The team was very informative of the area, always available to answer questions and I was treated as a VIP at all times . The Villa was over the top - amazing views, a location that couldn't be better and onsite staff that helped with groceries, meals and other day to day housekeeping.

The day before our arrival, Hurricane Blanca threatened our entire vacation - we almost didn't go - naturally we were concerned about canceling last minute but Fred was a stand up guy - he offered us a full refund - the excitement got the best of us, we bit the bullet and decided to let the storm play out while we were there. Good thing we did because we had the time of our life. In the end we did leave a day early as the storm continued toward land fall - Fred once again was a class act and refunded us the last day we were not there. We had a large crew and this was only one of the Villas we rented, the other home was also a great experience but the service was not equal and there was no refund on the last day either.

Amazing Villa and even better service - I was treated like a celebrity and lived like one too!

Magical, Majestic Villa Marcella

  • 5 of 5

A long postponed stay at Villa Marcella due to cancelled flights after the hurricane and it was worth the wait! The owners were so accommodating in our reschedule even though the Villa itself sustained no damage. From the moment you enter the light filled villa with a 180 view of the ocean, you are relaxed and well taken care of by Adrian and the staff. The rooms each has its own air conditioning control, so all can sleep in comfort. The small fridge in the bedroom was stocked with water, tea and beer at our request.

Adrian cooked us gourmet meals each night and shared recipes and cooking techniques. He went almost daily to the fish market and store for fresh finds. His BBQ Jumbo Prawns and Enchiladas were a huge hit but no meal was less than exceptional so leave it to him and you will be happy. His raspberry vinegarette, churros, bananas foster and other specialties were just wonderful. The girls never left the house except a quick trip into town for the Kentucky Derby and some shopping, and the boys had a ball catching a 140lb marlin on the GoDeep boat with Captain Frankie set up by owner, which Adrian then cooked up to perfection.The house is perfectly furnished with lots of comfortable chairs that face the ocean which because of the storm in New Zealand had huge sets of waves we could watch all day. This is not a swimming beach and caution should be noted, don't turn your back on the waves. But it is a nice long, safe, wide walking beach. We decided it was the most reasonably priced luxury vacation we had taken. Other than rent, we paid about $20pp/day in food, Adrian for Cooking and Tip. Recommend contacting Costco and having them pull your items so when you or Adrian arrive, they will just load it for you. No running around the warehouse or waiting in line. Since house at bottom of a hill, good hiking/running was available right outside the door. Bring a espresso pot as they only have a coffee maker but it made great coffee.

Incredible beach front Cabo experience

  • 5 of 5

Villa Marcella was an incredible place to spend a weekend in Cabo! The beach is pristine and the ocean views cannot be beat. Sunsets and sunrises both were amazing. The beach is very walkable and we explored many times.

The house itself is also an absolute delight! All of the bed rooms are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen area is very conducive to big groups while the downstairs area was a great place to hang out with friends. We played pool, ping pong, swam, and relaxed. Overall, I could not give this villa higher marks!
