The Villa is located in the prestigious and secure Golf and Marina community of Puerto Los Cabos, which include Ritz properties, JW Marriott and Secrets Hotel. Attention to detail and comfort are evident in every room.

Expansive views of sea of Cortez, mountains and golf courses can be seen from the five decks surrounding the house.

Casa Bella Vida features two kitchens. The gourmet kitchen with its giant granite cooking island, located upstairs, has majestic views of both the Sea of Cortes and the mountains.

The downstairs full kitchen makes small meal and snack preparation easy when lounging by the pool deck or breakfasts for early birds.

Both kitchens have water purification systems.

The need for air conditioning is minimal because of the breezes that are always present but it is available throughout the house. Solar energy panels were installed in 2016 meeting most of the electrical day time needs and heating the pool. A gas generator will take over in case of a power failure.

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5

We just spent two fabulous weeks at Casa Bella Vida with family and friends. Everything about our stay was exceptional. Upon arrival we were greeted by Anna (the property manager) and Alex (chef) who had homemade Mexican appetizers and margaritas waiting for us. Anna gave us a very detailed and thorough tour of the home. During our stay we had a couple of questions and Anna got back to us both times very quickly. We also hired Alex to cook a meal one evening for our family and it was delicious and a lot of fun.

Casa Bella Vida is spacious, comfortable, nicely decorated, clean and very well equipped. The outdoor living spaces are incredible and abundant. We enjoyed eating our breakfast on the back deck overlooking the pool, happy hour on the rooftop watching the sunset and looking at the ocean while sitting around the fire pit and our evening meals on the front deck looking out towards the ocean. The backyard pool area is spectacular. There were plenty of chairs, beach towels and a big blow up swan for floating around the pool. Our two year old grandson was unable to join us but the pool had a shallow area that would have been perfect for him.

Tannia, the owner, was very helpful and responded to all of my emails and questions immediately. While we were staying at the property she sent updates about what was happening at the club, Fundadores, and some ideas for activities. She was very accommodating, helpful and responsive.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Cabo at Casa Bella Vida and would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you Emil and Tannia for sharing your beautiful home with us and for making us feel so welcome. My kids are hoping we rent it again for more relaxing family time!

Incredible home in an amazing setting!

  • 5 of 5

What a vacation and it started with renting the perfect home for my family to stay in! First the owners couldn’t be more pleasant to work with. Starting with our first inquiry to our last encounter they couldn’t have been more helpful or accommodating. The home exceeded all expectations and no expense was spared when building it.

There were views from everywhere of the ocean and mountains and when you went to the roof deck you could combine them all in warmth next to the amazing fire pit they have on the roof! Their pool and hot tub was resort caliber and had everything you could want.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better you find out you have free access to Beach Club Fundadores that has a breathtaking infinity pool, private beach, state of the art fitness center and fabulous restaurant all overlooking the beach. While sitting in the hot tub my family and I enjoyed a free 20 minute Humpback whale show who decided to breach nonstop right in front of the club.

If you are looking for a perfect vacation with you and your family this is the home to rent. Tannia and Emil thank you for welcoming us into your home and making our stay something we will never forget. Your the best!

Beautiful spacious home perfect for extended family

  • 5 of 5

Lovely well equipped home in a quiet, secure neighbourhood with good amenities (beach club) nearby. Wonderful outdoor living space!! Not walkable but only a 15 min drive to the historic town center. Very helpful property manager and owner.

A few plumbing quirks including a septic system but everything worked!

Perfect for our family of 3 adult children and a grandchild.

Luxury in Puerto los Cabos

  • 5 of 5

Case Bella Vida is a wonderful property in the gated golf community of Puerto los Cabos. Very quiet and safe. The home was absolutely beautiful and perfect for our group of 7: 6 adults including grandparents and a 10 month old baby. The home was very clean and luxurious, and had many things not common to a VRBO property, such as spices in the kitchen, zip lock bags, tupperware, etc. All of the rooms and outdoor areas were perfect. A true luxurious, relaxing vacation!!! Upon arrival, we were greeted by Anna, the caretaker, and Alex, who had delicious snacks and Margaritas ready for us! We enjoyed a lot of golf in the area, as well as just relaxing time at the home. The pool area was fantastic, with shallow, shaded areas for the baby and deeper areas for the adults to enjoy. We had a chef come in and cook one night, which was lots of fun. We also ordered our Thanksgiving dinner from the Beach Club, and it was plentiful and delicious! And we had a delicious brunch our first morning at Flora Farms, which was just a short drive away. Many amenities right nearby to enjoy! We will definitely look forward to returning!!

Spectacular! We highly recommend this VRBO !

  • 5 of 5

This trip will always be remembered as our all time favorite family vacation !!! It was amazing in every way, the ocean views, the caretaker and her welcome margaritas, flowers and guacamole, the amenities, ( especially the shade and sun pool with a shallow end for kids ) along the peace and quiet of the area. This home is good for families, couples or a romantic getaway.

We can't wait to go back!

Great vacation property - beautiful and equipped with anything you need

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at Casa Bella Vida and San Jose Del Cabo. We were 2 families (9 total) with kids ranging from 10 to 21. The house is beautiful, comfortable and is the best equipped house we have ever rented. The pool and spa are resort like - since very few beaches were swimmable at this time of year we enjoyed many hours by the pool - relaxing, eating and drinking! The roof top patio / fire pit area was another favorite and we ended most of our evenings there. The extra room up there was the perfect sleeping area for our 21 year old to get away from "the kids". Having the 2nd kitchen on the bottom floor that accessed the pool was so convenient for lunches and keeping beverages cold and handy. Beautiful ocean views are available from every floor - opening the entire bank of doors on the living room level was spectacular - sitting there listening to the waves crash and sipping a cup of coffee was the best way to start each day!

Tannia was extremely helpful and quick with all responses throughout our decision making process and that continued once we had made our decision. There is a great binder in the house with all the specifics of the property in addition to recommendations of places to eat, activities, in-home chefs etc. Anna, the property manager, was at the house when we arrived to orient us and even had fresh salsa and guacamole waiting. She was easily available whenever we had questions or needed anything.

We were so glad we chose to say in San Jose Del Cabo over Cabo San Lucas - we loved the more laid back atmosphere. The Puerto Los Cabos resort area is beautiful and a pretty quick drive to downtown, but you definitely need a car unless you want to rely on taxis. If we decide to return to the area we would absolutely rent Casa Bella Vida again!
