About Cindi Walters

About 20 years ago, my parents built a lovely condo near Cabo San Lucas within the community of Cabo Glorieta where I would bring my three children. Eventually, I also built within the development. However, with only 3 bedrooms and many friends who I wished to entertain in Cabo San Lucas, I bought into Santa Carmela, remodeled and transformed my villa there into La Villa Elegante to entertain my friends and family a few times a year. I have enjoyed some of my best vacations in Cabo, as there is something for everyone. Lying on the beach in lounge chairs having lunch at Mango deck, sipping 2-for-1 cocktails, and snorkeling in the warm calm waters of the Sea of Cortez are some of my favorite days. I am former CEO of a water sports business and lover of beautiful beach travel destinations. I was born and raised in Southern California and currently reside with my family in South Orange County.

Cindi Walters purchased this villa in 2008

Why Cindi Walters chose Baja California Sur

A quick two-hour flight from Southern California, Cabo San Lucas is our travel destination because it has consistently good weather, wonderfully warm people, a relaxing atmosphere, miles of beautiful beaches, excellent golf courses, some of the best fishing, incredible spas, an assortment of outdoor activities and a lively nightlife all year around. New International flights are flying out of John Wayne Orange County, CA airport make for seamless travel to Cabo.

What makes this villa unique

The fall of 2012 is the first time I have put my villa on VRBO, prior to that I kept it as my private second home. Thus, the villa is very much set up with that personal touch. I treasure this villa as my family has enjoyed so many great times in the five years I've owned it. You will quickly agree this isn't just a 'rental' property. I will cherish sharing my Villa de Elegante with you!

Santa Carmella WOW!

  • 5 of 5

Go for the gold; this villa is the best! Met all expectations for three families in comfort, cleanliness, privacy, and style. Pool and spa functioning and clean (shallow bathing areas great for non swimmers), outdoor BBQ and bar set up is nicely designed and executed. We were all music lovers, and could customize the zones that had music or volume. Good times! Cannot say enough great things about the development. We walked to the well maintained and underused tennis courts and played singles and doubles every day (nothing like seeing a couple have a blast and rekindle on the court). Finish the court sport with a short walk to the development pool . . . and be prepared to be stunned! The pool and its siting will blow your mind and exceed all expectations with the sunset view of the cape, and the anchorage of the city, the perch over the tide pool . . . magic. Watch the ocean for two minutes, and you will be guaranteed of seeing a whale blow or surface from the built-in bench of the pool (we were there in February). Need more? Service was the best! Cindi knows the Cabo, and will make it easy for you to make the stay a great memory. Her property management was attentive, sophisticated, and unobtrusive. Boom, taken care of. Location in relationship to Cabo was great. We don't like renting cars for three families, and cabs are pricey. Bus route to town, stops right in front of Santa Carmella. Shopping experience at the market across the street was great. Great selection of produce, meat counter, organic and GF foods. So if you don't want to go anywhere during your stay in Cabo, you don't have to (and you may not want to, because the villa is so awesome). We'll be back for sure . . . .

Villa de Elegante was the most amazing place I have ever stayed! It exceeded my expectations in every way. The location in the gated community was perfect! The home accommodated my entire family with every need met and the backyard and pool was over the top! I have already made my reservation for next year! Love it!!!

From the initial communication with the owner, Cindi, to the wonderful house staff, everything was exceptional! The home is GORGEOUS! The house is beautifully decorated, fully equipped and clean. We hired Agee, who threw the most awesome BBQ for us. This was one of the highlights of our stay and Cindi arranged it all! We then hired Chef Roberto -- I can go on forever about him. His cooking was amazing. Bottom Line: Our stay was out of this world! A vacation my family won't forget. Thanks Cindi!!!

Villa Elegante was perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 12 were very overwhelmed with the house when we arrived. The pictures on vrbo do not do it justice. It was a great home to allow our family to spend time together and if needed, have a little time to ourselves. My family LOVED the hot tub and pool and used it every day. We loved being able to cook meals, chill on the couch, and we also got in some heated games of Monopoly!

Hiring Aggy to cook is a must! He is super nice and an excellent cook. We had so many leftovers, so I recommend booking him early in your trip. Then you can eat all the excellent food the following days.

Zain was also great. The water heater flame went out one night (super windy night) and he was there within 15 minutes to light it!

Thanks again Cindy for sharing your home.
