About the property

Villa, 6 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

We have been coming to Cabo for over 25 years and loved staying at the Palmilla and Hotel Cabo San Lucas. This house reminded us of those grande classic style suites. It was built as one of the first houses in the first private development in Palmilla, and with only 30 homes, it was Don Koll's (owner of Palmilla) choice to build three of his own homes close by. One of the three only swimmable beaches in all of Cabo. Even Villa Del Mar has to come to Palmilla Cove to swim. You can walk to the only fishing fleet between Cabo and San Jose. If you love a great large house, golfing, swimming, fishing, you will love our home. We would love to share it with you. No bachelor parties or college spring breakers. This is a family and friends rental home. Please treat it that way. You will also love our staff who have been us for many years, and our manager who bulit our villa. Welcome

Keywords: large pool and spa, overlooking ocean and only ocean golf hole, 5 suites with separate entrances and balconies, casita, classic cabo Palmilla style home. Indoor basketball, walk out to beach, large master suite, wireless internet, Dish TV, outdoor wet bar, all suites have incredible views of the ocean

About The Owner

We live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and we have been coming to Cabo for 25 years. We have traveled extensively and have always come back to the lovely weather and people of Cabo.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2004

Why The Owner chose San Jose del Cabo

We chose this home because of location, location, location. Palmilla Norte is an island inside of an island inside of an island. Cabo itself is an island 110 miles off the coast of Mexico and 900 miles of two lane road to the US. Palmilla is an island within Cabo. Norte is an island within Palmilla.

What makes this villa unique

The oversized pool, spa, and outdoor wet bar overlook one of the most spectacular views in all of Cabo. Unlike oceanfront with its 180 degree view of water, we have a Portofino type view of ocean, golf course, and the mansions of Caleta for 24/7 changing view at half the price.

Exceeded All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

I booked this home to celebrate a dear friend's milestone birthday. We were traveling from San Diego, a quick 2 hour flight to SJD. As soon as we entered the home, we knew we had chosen the right home for a relaxing girls' weekend. We were greeted with a delicious array of Mexican cuisine complete with pitchers of classic margaritas. Jorge, the caretaker, was there to go over the lay of the land and to assist with anything we may need during our stay. Margarita, the housekeeper, was wonderful as the daily maid service was definitely a bonus. The house is perfectly situated and just a stone's throw away to a swimming beach (little to no reef and easy shore break, depending on the time of year). The layout of the house is perfect for those who are early risers or night owls as the main living area is separated from the private bedrooms. Stunning views of the ocean from most bedrooms and the ocean breeze offered respite from the late afternoon temps. It was an epic weekend and a place we will definitely visit in the future. As one of the reviewers said, Viva Casa Ensueno!

Found my new south of the border shangrala. Nothing to do but enjoy the views and hang out. We ocean fished and caught several nice Roosters. Boats pick you up right at Palmilla. The Golf at Palmillas 27 holes the best. Place is comfort to the max. No reason to stay any where else.

The perfect vacation property

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Casa Ensueno and it is absolutely our favorite place in San Jose Del Cabo. In our opinion, Palmilla is the most beautiful community around the area. The pictures reflect the house, and what is truly ideal is that the living area in the house has separate entrances from the bedrooms. So the early to bed, early to rise, late to bed, late to rise, are not disturbed by others in the kitchen and living area. However, the true beauty of this property is the outdoor living space, there is so much of it! It is the reason for visiting Cabo and this space allows you to stretch out and enjoy the pool, spa and Ocean. You will hear the waves crash and a quick trip down the back stairs puts you on the beach! A car is nice but not necessary, the property is centrally located and it is quick and inexpensive cab ride into San Jose for groceries, restaurants and pretty much anything else you need. Our 5 couples couldn't find a lot of reasons to leave this beautiful property. Housekeeping is provided every day which you do not often get with other house rentals. I look forward to more stays at Casa Ensueno.
