About the property

Luxury 3 bedroom, 2 bath, walk to Palmilla Beach, safest beach in Los Cabo

Our 2750 sq. ft. ocean view town house with 220 sq. ft. wrap-around deck at the Villas de Oro at Palmilla offers you an elegant yet very affordable vacation retreat. Safe and secure, gated with 24 hour security staff, you are walking distance to world-class restaurants, golf, swimming, shopping, fishing and more. Search Villa Malia on Facebook for more info!

The design of our stylish 3 bedroom, 2-bath second floor unit takes full advantage of the unobstructed ocean views atop the lush landscaping of Palmilla resort. With soaring ceilings and massive windows facing east and north, this unit is light and airy yet never subject to the blinding afternoon western sun. A large (210 sq. ft.) wraparound deck with lounge chairs, covered dining, and new grill is the perfect outdoors setting for enjoying early morning coffee or evening cocktails. The entire unit has been designed and remodeled with a gourmet kitchen featuring custom slab granite counter, new stainless steel appliances (microwave, induction cook top, double oven, and a double door refrigerator/freezer, and dishwasher). 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. The master bath features double sinks, a large soaking tub, and a light and bright open walk-in shower. The second bedroom has super comfy beds that can be configured as either a King or two twins, a bathroom with double sinks, and walk-in shower. Both bedrooms feature the highest quality bedding with 400 thread count sheets. The 3rd bedroom has been set up as den/media room with a large flat screen TV that fronts a comfortable pull-out queen sofa. This high-end unit has fans in every room, yet is also climate controlled with heat and a/c available.

Nestled between desert and ocean, the Villas de Oro is part of the exclusive 24-hour guard-gated community of Palmilla that includes a large swimming pool and Jack Nicklaus golf course. Residents and guests of Villas de Oro are within walking distance of The Shoppes at Palmilla, an upscale village center catering to sophisticated travelers interested in art galleries, shopping, and great food. You will find and organic market (that delivers!), art galleries, clothing stores, & 6 different restaurants with 4 more soon to be built. You also don't want to miss the organic Farmer's Market held there every Friday morning.

Parking is adjacent to the unit making access very easy simple. Located within the Palmilla resort grounds is the safest and best swimming beach in Los Cabos, and the only one considered to be free of undertows. It is a quick drive or leisurely 1/2 mile walk from the Villa. World-class restaurants, golf, sensational surfing, unparalleled sport fishing, diving, kayaking/stand up paddling…Los Cabos has it all. It is one of those unforgettable places that are filled with exotic energy and intense natural beauty. There are miles of sand and surf to explore and an endless number of activities to experience in our azure blue waters. Come experience all that makes Palmilla home to the rich and famous.

We are conveniently located 20 minutes from Los Cabos International airport and just 8 minutes to the major grocery store (Mega) in town. San Jose Del Cabo is a delightful historic Mission town reminiscent of Old Town in San Diego. Thursday night Art walk is a wonderful opportunity to wander the streets and take in the ambience of Mexican culture and arts. Sample tapas, stop at a wine bar, or try the fine dining at Flora Farms, George Clooney's favorite restaurant.

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!

Palmilla Golf Club was Jack Nicklaus' first Latin America design and is recognized as the Grand Dame of golf in Los Cabos. Challenging, masterfully-conceived and stunningly beautiful, Palmilla has ocean views from every hole. The Ocean Course actually flows to the ocean as you play along the beaches of the Sea of Cortez. This 27-hole course is perched on deep canyon arroyos and sits among century old cardon cacti. Palmilla is a great resort course with daily trade winds that enhance pinpoint accuracy and challenges even the most experienced of players. A Mexican-decor clubhouse, on-site pro-shop and expert staff help provide for your every need. With its skillful design, expert management and idyllic locale, Palmilla Golf Club is recognized as one of top four courses in Mexico, and one of the finest in the world. The course is divided into the 3,337-yard Arroyo Nine, the 3,602-yard Mountain Nine, &the 3,548-yard Ocean Nine. The five sets of staggered tee boxes ensure an exciting game.

Everything We Hoped For & More!!!

  • 5 of 5

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's added a wonderful new dimension that we hope we can continue to share on a regular basis.

Fantastic spacious condo

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

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.

Absolutely beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful stay. Mr. Reiner's property is beautiful. The condo was roomy and well appointed. No surprises. Very quiet. Had the pool to ourselves the one time we used it. The only problem was getting into the unit at arrival. To be fair, we never stated exactly what time we'd arrive at the property but our flight info was passed on as were our plans to stop for groceries. Once we arrived and had no way to get in, I left messages with the manager. The property manager wasn't responding via phone, email or text. Communication could have been better. Luckily Mr. Reiner responded very quickly to an email with a code for the key box. Once we got it, all was good. Later that evening the property Manager did email letting me know her partner waited for us then left. A message at that time with the key box code would have alleviated a lot of stress. I would love to stay here again and would recommend it without reservations but get the key code ahead of time!
