Villa La Estancia has the only privately-owned beachfront condominiums on the fabulous Medano Beach of Cabo San Lucas, and operates as a five-star resort. Each of the condos is owned by an individual or group of homeowners who take pride in their property. Our condo, number 1202, is the closest two bedroom condo to the beach! Even other owners admire our location and view, as our terrace looks out at Land's End and directly down at the action at the pool. Have a look at the Guest Comments below and convince yourself, as have our past guests, that this villa is the prime 2-bedroom villa in the resort!

Medano Beach is wonderful for swimming and sunning and many other activities such as parasailing and snorkeling, but you will be tempted to stop at one of the two gorgeous pools or five hot tubs on the site. Or, you might choose to go into the executive fitness center for a workout or the spa for a jacuzzi, steambath, or sauna. Or you can just hang out at the pool's swim up bar and restaurant and let yourself be pampered by the friendly, expert personnel.

World famous golf and sportfishing are at your fingertips, or you can rent ATVs and tour the desert area at the tip of the peninsula. Take a day trip to some of the fascinating towns of southern Baja California, or you can simply walk or take a short bus or taxi ride into Cabo San Lucas itself. Shop for Mexican jewelry, metalwork, and pottery, then enjoy your dinner at one of the town's countless excellent restaurants. Have a cocktail at the bustling marina, and watch the boats of the fishing fleet return from their day at sea. Be sure to stay in town long enough to sample the exciting night life - you will have all day tomorrow to snooze at the oceanfront pool!

The condo is spacious and elegant, with 2000 plus square feet of living space. It is a complete luxury residence, with marble floors throughout. You will spend a good deal of time on the large terrace which looks down on the main pool and gazes out at Land's End, the very tip of the Baja peninsula. The terrace has ceiling fans, a wet bar, a refrigerator, and a gas grill in case you are in the mood to cook.

The condo has a full kitchen (updated with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances) and dining room, breakfast bar, and living room. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and a sitting area, and the master bath has jacuzzi tub, shower, and double sinks. The second bedroom has a bathroom and two queen-size beds. The couch in the comfortable living room pulls out into a queen-size bed, so the condo holds eight with ease. Adjoining the living room is a third full bathroom with shower. There are cable TVs and ceiling fans in every room, as well as a VCR and stereo in the living room.

The expert and courteous concierge staff are dedicated to making your stay a total vacation. They will take care of all the details that you want to get away from on vacation, from check-in to check-out. They will arrange transportation, restaurant reservations, and give expert advice on the activities in the area. If you are in a mood to cook, you can purchase groceries at the onsite grocery. Also available there are pharmacy items, jewelry and clothing, movie rentals, and even a delicatessen. If you just want to loaf, there is a fine restaurant on site, which also offers room service.

Come to Cabo and see why it has captured the imagination of those who love the sun and water. Cabo is easily accessible by air through most of the major air carriers (airport code SJD). Fly in the morning, then spend the afternoon in the sun at Cabo's premier resort. Let this be Your Home by the Sea, and you will have a vacation you won't soon forget!

About Tom & Kevin & Karen

Our villa has three independent owners, each of whom owns different blocks of time in the resort. If you inquire about a rental, you will be answered by the person who owns the time you are interested in.

Tom & Kevin & Karen purchased this condo in 2003

Why Tom & Kevin & Karen chose Baja California Sur

Villa La Estancia has the only privately-owned condominiums on Medano Beach (Cabo's swimming beach). The resort is beautifully built, and in a great location within walking distance of Cabo San Lucas. And the staff treats guests wonderfully!

What makes this condo unique

We three owners particularly enjoy having villa 1202, which we (and many fellow owners!) consider the best 2BR villa in the resort. Its location is superb, with its view of Lands End and being directly above the main pool. You are sure to have a good time in 1202.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great villa. Working with Kevin was like having

your personal travel agent. The information he

provided made our trip so easy. The villa is great

shape and the views were wonderful. Since we didn't

get to all the things on the list, we will have to go

While this was our second visit to Cabo, it was our first time at Villa La Estancia and it exceeded expectations in every way. What a perfect trip and gorgeous Villa! This villa was luxurious, had AMAZING views of the ocean, Lands End and the pool. It included all of the comforts of home (washer/dryer, wifi, kitchen appliances, utensils, etc.), AND was within close proximity to dining and shops (10-15 minute walk or a quick 5-minute taxi/water taxi ride)! The terrace was the perfect place to sip coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening and soak in the sights, while enjoying the cool ocean breezes. Working with Kevin was perfection. He provided us with all necessary information about the property/villa plus recommendations for transportation and places to eat. We took many of his dining recommendations and they certainly did not disappoint. I could go on and on about the food! Thank you, Kevin, for opening up your Villa to us. We highly recommend this villa to anyone traveling to Cabo and hope to be back soon ourselves!

Exceptional! 5/5 -

Awesome stay in Cabo

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at La Estancia in Cabo. Our room was beautiful and had everything we needed for our 5 nite stay. Our villa had an awesome view of the pool and ocean. We enjoyed having coffee on the veranda each morning. We appreciated the fact that we could enjoy the pool at the Del Palmar along with ours. The location was convenient to walking to town which we did each nite for dinner. We also rented a car and the valet parking attendants were super friendly and efficient. We hope to make this an annual fall break destination.

The condo was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The location of Villa La Estancia was perfect! Walking distance to everything. The people there were awesome and very accomodating. Loved the condo, it was HUGE and very nice. It gave my husband and I privacy while my daughter and her friends had theirs. The views were amazing! The patio was HUGE and stocked with everything for a BBQ as was the kitchen. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you for such a great time.

Wonderful vacation at Beautiful Vlla Estancia in Cabo San Lucas!

  • 5 of 5

This unit at Villa Estancia is beautiful with the perfect layout for a family. The grounds were beautiful. Location is great with amazing views. The pools were perfect for all ages. We loved the location of Villa Estancia in relation to town. It was easy and convenient to catch a van out front for a quick ride to shops and restaurants. The owner had great recommendations for all the fun things to do and see in Cabo. Thank you!!

Roomy, well-equipt 2 bedroom unit with gorgeous views.

  • 4 of 5

I'll start with the good stuff - the space is a true condo, with plenty of kitchen necessities & nicely furnished. Views from the patio overlook the main pool and glorious Sea. The pools at Estancia are gorgeous and our kids (7 and 8) loved them. The beach is steps away and incredibly swimmable. There were always ample lounge chairs on the beach. Next trip, we would purchase boogie board or tubes for the kids upon arrival (WalMart is a close cab ride). Our kids also enjoyed the kids club at Palmar and we used a private sitter twice, who we adored. Spa at Del Arco is a must. Finally, the unit owners provided a fantastic detailed "cheat sheet" for Cabo and unit.

Now for some downsides - The concierge was useless (Open Table was better). She didn't seem to know the area and was perplexed when asked the simplest questions (e.g. any suggestions for dinner off-resort?). When we asked if she could help with reservations at El Farallon (which I HIGHLY recommend), she said it is often booked and likely unavailable. When we pushed her to please try, there were reservations for 5:30 or 9:30 most nights. We took the 5:30 spot and it was a highlight of the trip.

The tour desk (where you are sent for golf/excursions) was only slightly better. They were nicer but directed us to limited options (with kickbacks, perhaps?) For example, we asked to play golf at Cabo del Sol, but they told us they "don't have a relationship with them" and we had to pick from 3 other places. One was Cabo Real which was fine, but we were able to get into Cab del Sol on our own online.

It was quite crowded (spring break/week before Easter) and often hard to find space/chairs around the Estancia pool. Sunny chairs often filled before 10AM as people reserve them with towels at 8. It seemed there were more college partiers than families staying at Estancia, although we never had a noise problem (we are boring 40-somethings with kids). The Palmar pool next door has a fast, fun water slide the kids loved, but had even more college kids and was always over-crowded. We were told Estancia has pool reciprocity with Del Arco, the property to the right, but apparently it was pulled recently (it has lovely pools, but we got in trouble for using them before we found out the reciprocity had been revoked). Lastly, having a W/D in unit was clutch (however, the dryer took FOREVER, even with the lint trap cleaned).

Nice place (although we found $500/night high compared to other units).
