This place just ruined all other vacations for my family, no way anyplace else will live up to this villa. We have a family of 5 with kids ages of 16,14,6, they all loved it. The villa is amazing and we chose NOT to do the all inclusive. We went downtown Cabo every night for dinner, completely safe, and amazing restaurants. On the way to the villa is Costco, Walmart, and grocery store. We stocked up for the week and enjoyed meals in villla as well. Staying at the Montecristo allows access to 3 other Pueblo Bonito resorts and we hit them all. Highly recommend this place. Tim is excellent and easy to work with answered any questions we had. I highly recommend renting a car and all the driving is easy.
Beautiful view and gorgeous home
We throughly enjoyed our week at the Montecristo Estates! The morning view and sunrise were spectacular! We saw whales everyday. We enjoyed the many options for sitting around as a group; 2 patios, a large dining room table and upstairs and downstairs living-rooms with comfortable seating. The hot tub and the pool were also very welcome additions for our stay. The staff at Montecristo was attentive to all details as well. They were the icing on the cake of a fabulous vacation. The home was beautifully appointed and all in all we felt like we were living in the lap of luxury! We hope to do it again!
Booked this place for two weeks over spring break. It was the perfect size for our family of four
( mom, dad and two tweens) Beds were all super comfy.
We really just wanted to relax and unwind and we found this was the absolute ideal place to do so. We rented a car and filled up on groceries at Costco and Walmart ... didn't feel like cooking, we ordered room service to the villa or went to the lovely "market" at Pueblo which had hot, fresh food at the ready.
We enjoyed amazing meals at The Thompson Hotel, Bar Esquila and Las Ventanas as well.
We felt very safe in this double gated slice of heaven and the views from the heated pool are to die for ! A million thank you's!
We had a wonderful time at Sunset Beach. The pool off the lower deck area was a great place to hang out and watch whales everyday. Sunsets were spectacular lighting up the clouds in orange and red Hughes. We only ate breakfast in the villa and usually went into town for dinner. We loved Edith's restaurant. Great steaks and they made the Cesar salad right at the table. The ambiance and the engaging waiters made the evening!
The only issue we had at Sunset Beach is that every time we wanted to go somewhere on the property we had to call for a van to take us to the Montecristo part of the property or to the Market which is in the middle of the property. Vans do not go to the lower part of the property so if we wanted to go to the main pool area or restaurant we would have to take the van to the Market and we then had to wait for a golf cart to take us there. This sometimes took 45 minutes to an hour to get to where we wanted to go. The other negative is the pillows are hard and the mattresses are lumpy and really need replacement.
All in all our family had a wonderful time at this property and the owner was very helpful.
Thank you for taking the time to review our property after your recent stay. We are glad that the trip was an overall positive experience. That is unfortunate about the travel logistics around the resort, but it does happen as we are separate from the lower resort. That is the reason that usually rent a car during our trips.
Thanks again and keep us in mind if your travel plans take you back to Mexico / Cabo S.L.
Beautiful view, spacious house, helpful owner
Our first visit to Cabo - love the location. Broad property was good - big enough to offer plenty of things to do, close enough to the town to get there easily but far enough away to be quieter, nice work out facilities, plenty of pools, etc. Specific house was great was great - fantastic view, bedrooms all big with private very nice baths, great daily service, loved the infinity pool, etc. The owner was happy to provide whatever info we wanted prior to committing and post acceptance. We would rent there again without hesitation. Only suggestion would be upgrading the kitchen items- knives, wine glasses, some basics like olive oil, a few spices, etc.
Great Owner, Great Property, Great Vacation
I had a great experience renting this villa for 7 occupants! The owner was very responsive (via e-mail, text and phone) and professional which gave me great confidence. The property itself was great and met or exceeded my expectations based on the description (except, however, this particular villa didn't have a grill and the entrance fountain wasn't functional - both minor). Renting this villa was the cornerstone to a great vacation which was enhanced by the friendly/helpful staff of the Pueblo Bonito Montecristo, and the beauty of Cabo San Lucas.
Highlights: infinity pool was heated; daily housekeeping; concierge successfully retrieving an iPhone left in a taxi; very prompt shuttle service; the views!
Low lights: cost of room service (10 bottles of water cost over 900 pesos); weak/no wireless internet on the second floor.
