About Marilyn Kweskin
The property was purchased in 1989, and building started the next year. The family ran a large construction company in Los Angeles and thought the Baja property would become a wonderful vacation spot, a place to get away. Since the family consists of many artistic and talented people, everyone wanted to contribute -- parents, children, friends -- and it quickly became a labor of love. Molds were made for tile and balustrades. There was an in-house woodcarver and furniture maker who made the doors and chests and tables. A shop for cabinetry. A local iron worker fashioned the iron gates and some of the windows. The crew was gathered from one small town in mainland Mexico, and as more were needed, more came. Everyone lived in tents and food was prepared by a local Mexican cook out of an outdoor kitchen attached to a camper. Many of the children “cut their teeth” here, going on to become landscape architects, architects, builders, painters and sculptors, with a real set of experiences to get them started.

We are located about an hour from San Jose del Cabo, on a rough dirt road, really off the beaten path, far from the bright lights and regular tourist spots, on a beautiful secluded beach. This is not the place for barhopping, shipping or golf, but if you want serenity and solitude, a time to commune with the sea and nature, you will find it here. We are right next to one of the safest swimming beaches in the Baja and there are miles of beautiful beaches to walk. About half an hour away is Cabo Pulmo, where you can go diving, snorkeling, whale watching, all in a protected marine park. It is also possible to arrange fishing trips, either in small pangas or on larger boats as well, and a neighbor south of us offers horseback riding, either on the beach or in the arroyos. As it says on our website 'Villa del Faro is a writer's retreat, secluded romantic getaway, aquatic paradise, private garden enclave, artist's hideaway, and a culinary Mecca. It IS NOT about shopping, barhopping or golf!' That pretty much says it all!
