Chefs will find all they need to create the freshest and finest of Los Cabos cuisine. The elegantly appointed living room centers around a large ocean inspired painting that defines the color and texture of the décor enjoyed throughout the home. You'll love the relaxed seating with a cozy couch accompanied by big comfortable chairs. Enjoy fine dining at the gorgeous dining room table and 8 upholstered chairs. The master bedroom features a new King sized bed, walk-in closet, and a large screen television with Apple TV.

Most people prefer to rent a car while in Los Cabos. Insurance is mandatory in Mexico so be sure and confirm that you have the right coverage. Upon your arrival at Los Cabos International airport, you'll find taxis are available for the 20-minute drive to Palmilla or private transportation can be arranged in advance through our concierge service. Public transportation is available in San Jose del Cabo but is not always reliable nor easy to use.

About Shea Reiner
My husband John is a writer and I do renovation design and construction management in Oregon. We love to travel and have had wonderful experiences booking through vrbo. So when we purchased this home as a warm weather getaway this year, we thought we would try making it available for rent during the times we are not able to use it ourselves. Please feel free to call me at (808)349-5559 with any questions or special requests you may have. Shea
Shea Reiner purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Shea Reiner chose Palmilla
Because we use it ourselves, we've outfitted it with everything we look for or use in a rental. We love the quiet and privacy of Palmilla and find all the action we need minutes away in San Jose del Cabo. My husband loves having great surf spots in his backyard. As a former chef on a private jet, I outfitted the gourmet kitchen to have everything a pro chef would need. love being able to walk to the Farmers Market to get everything I need to whip up great meals. There is so much to love about Cabo!
What makes this Villa unique
We were especially fortunate that our friend and RE agent, Lisa Hernandez agreed to act as concierge for out guests. I handle the bookings but once you arrive, Lisa is there to answer any questions you may have and give you all the guidance you wish to make your stay truly special. Originally from Canada, Lisa has lived in Baja for over 25 years now and formerly had an Eco tour company in Cabo. She never ceases to amaze me with her knowledge of the area and everyone who lives there! With a phone call, she has this incredible ability to find the perfect person to solve any problem that comes up!

Gorgeous location, fabulous villa!
Our family had a wonderful time in Palmilla! The villas de Oro are in an amazing location. Quiet, peaceful yet super close to everything! This villa is gorgeous- comfortable beds, stocked kitchen, and beautifully decorated. Pool was amazing. Just perfect! I want to go back.....
Beautiful and safe!
My family of 4 really enjoyed staying at this well-located villa. We felt very safe as the neighborhood is gated and guarded. The guards were very polite and friendly. The little shopping center at the highway exit was perfect for walking each morning to get coffee. I also walked to the beach and it was a very nice, 20 minute stroll. The views from the terrace are beautiful! We would definitely stay here again and not hesitate to recommend this place to our friends and family.
These are the reasons why I’m not leaving 5 stars. We were not given the key code to access the keys prior to arrival as someone was supposed to meet us. After some quick emails, we were able to enter but the place was not cleaned/ready for us. We dropped our luggage and went to eat and by the time we returned, the place was ready. The second bedroom has twin beds listed with the option of making a king size bed. We were expecting the twins, but the bed was made up for the king. We did not ask for that option so we were disappointed to find the king. Lastly, as a suggestion, there were only two pillows on each bed. We like extra pillows. I see that past suggestions have all been accommodated which speaks highly of the owners.
Thank you for your suggestions! Usually we try to allow a day between gusts so that the unit is ready regardless of arrival time, but being Spring Break, we weren't able to do that. I will try and assure the the key code is given in advance. In the future, if the 2nd bedroom is not configured as you want it, please let Lisa or Marco know and they can have it switched immediately. We hope to see you again!
Fantastic spacious condo
We had a great time. The location is fantastic. You are able to walk to multiple restaurants, an organic grocery store, a few shops, and the beach. The balcony is very large, and it is a joy to sit there in the morning and watch the sun rise.
Thank you, Susan. We hope you will be back!
Beautiful, comfortable spacious condo
Very comfortable, great location, peaceful and welcoming.
Great family vacation
To begin I was a little worried about going to Mexico for the first time however the location was very safe and everything was easy to get to. The house was perfectly located close enough to the store and town but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful at night enjoying a glass of wine on the balcony. The beach nearby, Chileno Beach, was perfect for snorkeling and playing in the calm serf. We spent hours there and brought a lunch and beach chairs that we found at the condo. It is also just a short walk to the market and a wonderful restaurant if you don't want to cook. My only request is that the condo have a coffee grinder as we brought some kona coffee beans that needed to be grinded. The local coffee shop helped us with that. All in all a lovely vacation and we will be back.
Everything We Hoped For & More!!!
Villa Malia is everything we hoped to find and more!!! The owner, Shea, was a treat to deal with during the reservation/information process and Lisa & Marco, the property managers, were available by phone prior to arrival and Marco met us upon arrival at the property with keys and a wealth of information regarding the Villa. With such a smooth start we delighted in absorbing the lovely view and settling into our beautifully appointed home away from home. It truly is even better than the pictures and as well equipped, or better, than the reviews I'd read indicated. We've been visiting the Cabo area, and loving it, for over 25 years but this was our first foray into VRBO renting there....what a wonderful way to start. The location suited us perfectly, we love the golf course, the beach, and we love Villa Malia. We're very fortunate we were able to book a return visit in February, 2018 which we're eagerly anticipating. Our thanks to Shea for sharing their beautiful Cabo home....it's added a wonderful new dimension that we hope we can continue to share on a regular basis.
Thank you so much. We look forward to having you again!
