Why Anandita Dutta chose Rancho Cerro Colorado

LOCATION AND SPECTACULAR VIEWS !!! Watching the sun rise in the mornings over the ocean lying in your bed & the full moon rising over the Sea of Cortez is a very unique and special experience. Located in one of the best neighborhood communities and close to San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas towns and within a few minutes walk to the splendid Punta Bella beach provides the best of all worlds..

What makes this villa unique

The sight of migrating whales from the deck, watching the mother whales and their babies glinting in the water, playing and breaching in the huge beautiful bay.

Casa de Helios - Panoramic Ocean Views overlooking Palmilla Beach
average rating of 4.8 based on 25 reviews

GREAT PLACE to stay! FANTASTIC VIEWS from every room in the house as well as the pool area and papala! Comfortable and spacious enough for nine adults. A bit of a hike to and from the beach, but the surrounding area was absolutely beautiful! We did experience small ants in the kitchen midway through our week there, and one of the party staying in the casita was bitten several times by something (possibly ants). That being said, we ALL agree we would go again in a heartbeat!!!

Audacious Views and Peaceful Ambiance

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Helios offers easy access to nearby restaurants and beaches. Walk to the private beach below the house or drive a couple of miles to Palmilla Beach for swimming. The casa is large and accommodating. But the best assets are the views and pool and patio area which are as good as you can imagine.

Always Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth year at Casa Helios and each year it gets better. The house is always well maintained and the owner does improvements each year. The gardens look great. The house is located a short walk from a spectacular white sandy beach that is virtually private as there are very few people on it ... and with a medium length walk you can get to the One and Only Resort. Casa Helios has views of the beach from almost every room ... it is so refreshing to wake up in the morning go to the master bedroom bathroom and watch the sunrise. It is easy to see the whales from the outside deck beside the swimming pool and spa. New in the neighbourhood is the shopping area right across the highway ... there is an amazing food court with excellent food and a large variety to choose from. If you are so inclined, check out the impressive workout facility with its drop in arrangement. Casa Helios' manager, Marty, is always readily available to answer any questions and be of assistance. So all in all, Casa Helios is a wonderful place to have a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. It is truly world class. We will be going back next year for sure.

wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

Our whole family (7 adults + baby) had a great time during our week at this house. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and deck so much that we were content staying at the house. Be careful if you go in the water at the beach. We're all good swimmers, but the currents were unpredictable and we didn't feel safe in the water. The dishwasher was broken when we arrived and was never fixed the whole week we were there--the repairman had a sick child, so we washed a lot of dishes! We enjoyed the town of Cabo San Jose and found it very easy to buy groceries. The property manager Marty led us to the restaurant Zippers right on the beach and we ate there a 2nd time. Other than short local trips, we mainly enjoyed hanging out together at the house.

Just Okay

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at Casa de Helios for a week in Sept 2016. The house was not in rental condition when we arrived. There were missing lights and a broken ceiling fan outside. Garbage disposal, dishwasher, oven hood and refrigerator were not working, pool an hot tub lights were not working, multiple leaking toilets and shower drains clogged. Overall the house needs some updating.

If you rent a car, make sure and have decent ground clearance. We had a Jetta and we bottomed out pulling in/out of the driveway.

The location was perfect for us, close to the Mega store and a 20-25 minute car ride to downtown Cabo. The house manager Marty and the neighborhood security guards were great.

We loved Cabo, but will look to stay somewhere else on our next trip.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that your experience at our home was less than perfect. Yes, due to hurricane Newton from couple of weeks back prior to your arrival there were some damages on the outside of the house. This included some broken light shades and one ceiling fan in the Palapa. These items were on order and could not be replaced before your arrival. We have not heard about anything else not functioning perfectly, such as garbage disposal, oven hood and refrigerator from any previous guest or from the property manager. We wish you had mentioned the problems to the property manager who was in touch with you regularly to ensure your stay was comfortable. He would have helped you figure out if the correct switches were being used. There is a user manual for everything in the house. Shower drains do get clogged sometimes if guests enter bathroom showers without washing off the sand from the beach. We heard from the property manager that this happened on the last day. Also on your departure, our property manager rechecked everything and found all to be working in perfect condition. As you can see from all the past reviews. all our guests have loved the house, its amenities, the ocean view and accessibility and the convenience of the location. We are sure, had you contacted the property manager with your problems they would have been resolved immediately.
