About the property

4BR/5.5 Bath Pvt Home in elegant gated community with daily housekeeping

You are immediately struck by the ocean views; full width telescoping doors literally bring the view inside. The next eye full is the infinity pool and hot tub at just the right temperature. A fully equipped kitchen for intimate cooking or a party. Other top to bottom features include a 5 zone SONOS sound system, large Samsung smart flatscreen TVs, fiberoptic wireless internet inside and out, and daily housekeeping included - leave the dishes/don't make a bed. A large living room upstairs and a family room downstairs. The main floor office includes a large monitor and 3-in-1 printer for those who can't leave work behind.

The top floor MBR suite includes a King bed, two WCs, ample closet space, a sitting room with a view to die for perfect for morning coffee and checking your email.

On the bottom floor off the family room are two smaller bedrooms with Queen and Double Twins respectively, each with their own full bathroom, and their own terraced patio.

At the main floor, there is a full "mini-master" with its own King bed and full bath with entrance through the kitchen or off the main deck.

There is ample sunning space with multiple deck lounge chairs.

Want to get to the beach? You may be the only ones on it. Grab a beach chair and go down 2 flights of stairs and you're there or walk around via the golf course path. Some snorkel gear is available but all water sports equipment can be rented nearby (surfboards, paddleboards, kayaks, etc.). This is one of the few safe warm water swim beaches in the area - great for morning and evening strolls or that morning workout.

The home is extremely safe and private with the HOA's 24/7 manned security and double gated entrance.

About Mike Looney

We are empty-nesters who lived and worked in Silicon Valley for the last 25+ years. We're now balancing our quasi retirement time between Casa Luna, the the SF Bay area where are two grown children and families live. We love coastal areas - Mike's an avid sailor; we both love to fish, snorkel and kayak; and we're learning to paddle board. Besides that we love to travel and look for new restaurants and wines. It's a good life.

Mike Looney purchased this house in 2013

Why Mike Looney chose San José del Cabo

We got lucky. One of those right place - wrong time scenarios wherein we knew it was a great buy in a fabulous location, but sooner than we were ready - but we bit the bullet anyway. The home had a lot of deferred maintenance but the fundamental layout and bones were great. And did I mention the views?

What makes this house unique

Every bedroom has a breathtaking view. Check out our Facebook page:

"casalunapalmilla." Water sports from boating, fishing, swimming, snorkeling, surfing, kayaking and paddle boarding are literally minutes away. The property is secure - 24/7. It's our home - you get to enjoy the amenities that we enjoy: flat screen TVs, well equipped office and internet, full-house sound system, wine refrigerator, warm pools and hot tubs. We provide excellent service with a local young property management team and daily housekeeping. Need a chef or bartender; need recommendations? -- let us know.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We arrived at Casa Luna on February 2016 to find a lovely, clean, well-appointed home with great amenities! The villa enjoys a tremendous location coupled with large well-furnished outdoor patio area with exceptional ocean views. The pool and hot tub were pure bliss and the beds (and pillows) were very comfortable. The kitchen was quite well-equipped for our needs with quality appliances and the outdoor area including a great BBQ and outdoor bar area. Even before we arrived at Casa Luna we knew that this was going to be a wonderful holiday given the ease of booking and exceptional service we received from Mike (villa owner) and Marlene (local property manager). The information pack was very thorough and included wonderful little tips that made our holiday experience very relaxing. Cojo, the housekeeper, was delightful and took care of all of the day to day requirements. She was also available (for a small additional fee) to prepare breakfast which we were really happy that we took advantage of. Marlene found us a good chef that came to cook two wonderful dinner, again something I would highly recommend to other renters! In the end we loved the place and look forward to potentially returning again next year. All in all “top marks” to Casa Luna, Mike, Marlene and Cojo!!!

Family 50th wedding anniversary celebration

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with our family in Mike Looney's beautiful home. Everything was FANTASTIC. The pool and hot tube were in continual use with our granddaughters. It was our first time using a saline pool and we loved no chlorine. My wife, son and I went fishing with Gonzalo(recommended by Mike). He and his brother were a lot of fun and we caught a 25# Yellow Fin Tuna. We had it filleted at the marina and ate delicious grilled tuna steaks everyday. We also walked to the beach--very private, protected and safe for our granddaughters(4 & 9). Every evening we sat by the outdoor fireplace and relaxed. Housekeeper Coyo felt like part of our family. She and our daughter practiced their Spanish/English with each other(much laughter could be heard). Marlene was always available to answer our questions and helped us navigate taking the bus to San Jose for dinner. We loved every minute of our celebration.

Beautiful Home with Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house that is perfect for 4 couples, as the four bedrooms all have their own bathrooms and relatively equal design. Mike and his team did an excellent job arranging everything from travel to breakfast and lunch at the home. Absolutely recommend staying again.

Casa Luna a beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My family of five spent a wonderful week at Casa Luna in February. The house is very well situated and has beautiful views from every room. The pool is large and well heated, the beds are amazingly comfortable and the house feels like someone's home (in a good way). Every kitchen/bath necessity is provided and we were very comfortable during our stay. The property management team is welcoming and responsive and Coyo the housekeeper was a real treat. We have been visiting San Jose for many years and would definitely return to Casa Luna.

Christmas through New Years 2016 - 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous family reunion at Casa Luna. We didn't go anywhere for the first few days because it was perfect. Groceries and services were within 5 minutes. A Gated community with great security. A Short hike down 120 craftsmen masonry steps to the swimmable beach. Marlene's coordination was first class and Coyo's daily attention to housekeeping details were excellent. We made a video clip of the view from the master suite, put it on a 20 second loop and play it on or TV, like the Netflix holiday fire thang.

Great location and landlord - beautiful home - fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home, well maintained and beautifully situated. Lots of room for everyone and many features and attention to detail that you wouldn't normally expect in a rental. Clearly the owner spends time here and has used quality elements from the dishes to the paintings to the flatscreens to the beds - even the books were great selections. The topper was the service though: Massages and yoga onsite, excursions, whatever you asked for, they were ready to accommodate and made everything simple and easy to transact. Very secure area, if you have any concerns about Mexico, leave them home on this trip. You'll feel safer in Palmilla than you would in your own kitchen stateside. Five stars, four diamonds and two thumbs up. Can't wait to come back!

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Mike's house with 5 other women for a low-key girls trip and we loved everything about the place. Mike was open, honest and very helpful during the pre-booking and booking phase. The house itself was gorgeous and very comfortable! We loved spending time in the pool and cooking in the kitchen. We were there in the summer so it was too hot for the hot tub or to use the outdoor stove, but those features would be incredible during the cooler months. We loved going down to the beach with the provided beach chairs and umbrellas. The water was a bit rough getting in but we still managed to do plenty of swimming (even the pregnant friend). The staff could not have been sweeter or more helpful. We had breakfast made for us one day which was delicious and in-house massages which were wonderful. We all want to bring our families back soon! Thanks for a perfect trip, Mike!
