About the property

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. NOW IS THE TIME to see beautiful San Jose del Cabo!

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 sometimes 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 post-Hurricane Odile 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 with ice maker). 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. You also have easy access to the calm waters off the beautiful soft sand beach fronting the five-star One & Only Palmilla hotel.

Amenities includes:

- Large laundry room with a full size washer and dryer

-Apple TV with Netflix

-Vonage phone service with free long distance calling to 60 countries

-IPod connection to the sound system

-Safe to secure passports and valuables

-Beach chairs, umbrella, and towels

Within the gated golf course community of Villas de Oro, guests will find an enormous pool dedicated for the private use of only the surrounding townhomes. 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 neither 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.

Shea Reiner purchased this villa in 2014

Why Shea Reiner chose San Jose del Cabo

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!

We had a very comfortable stay in Cabo last week. The condo was large, clean and very comfortable. Its proximity to San Jose and easy walk to the beach and amenities were perfect. I would recommend the property to anyone who wants a great value in a great neighborhood.

Fantastic in every respect

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I are fortunate enough to have been able to rent many nice places in some of the most beautiful places on the planet and we are usually quite pleased with the places we pick but Villa Malia and the entire experience around it was truly extraordinary. It really all starts with the owner, Shea. Having dealt with many owners who have treated us more like potential criminals than potential customers, Shea was a delightful change of pace. She was always super responsive, both before AND after we paid for our booking.

It was clear that she truly cared about our experience and our satisfaction .

The unit itself was just as advertised. A beautiful home with a great ocean view, just steps away from the main swimming pool. (very close, but not so close as to ever hear any noise) The furnishings are new and lovely and the kitchen was stocked well enough for even the most serious of cooks.

And that brings us to the subject of food. If you want to eat out, there are many great options, all reachable within a 5 minute drive, but if you really want a fabulous treat you can ask Lisa, the local property manager, to bring in a world class chef and a bartender and have them treat you to a really remarkable evening.

At our request, Lisa, arranged just such an evening for us. My buddy and I caught 2 massive Dorados, (Mahi Mahi) and we picked up some giant shrimp at the Mega store down the street. The cook Elizabeth and her helper, Rafael, did the rest. They checked in with us the day before to find out how we wanted our fish prepared, asked for any special requests, did all the shopping for fresh (mainly organic) ingredients, came to our place, cooked the most wonderful food you can imagine, crafted world class Margaritas, served us like we were royalty and then cleaned everything up perfectly before quietly departing. What a night. The food was better than you would get at the finest and most expensive of restaurants. Our girlfriends are still raving about it two days later.

If you are on a tight budget, this experience may not be for you but if you have a little discretionary cash to spend and are looking for a once in a lifetime experience, this just might be your ticket to vacation heaven.

Bottom line:

We loved Villa Malia, the neighborhood, the complex, the view and the fantastic treatment we got from all the wonderful people involved. We will surely be back to do it all over again next year.

A wonderful place for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Malia for a little over a week and loved every minute of it! The place was super clean and was set-up with everything you could possibly need- fast wifi, super comfortable beds, fans in every room, great AC, full kitchen. Every morning we walked down to the beach, took a swim (or snorkel- the rocks right there at Palmilla Beach are full of fish!) walked back, jumped in the pool and then finished off taking in the ocean view from the wrap-around deck with our morning coffee and delicious local papaya. We took many day adventures- Todos Santos and Cerritos on the pacific side, Chileno Beach and Santa Maria Beach on the Cape. We also made several visits to the charming village of San Jose Del Cabo for shopping and amazing meals (Especially loved La Panga!) but always looked forward to returning to our incredibly comfortable home-away-from-home in Palmilla. We highly recommend Villa Malia and can't wait to visit again!

Can't wait to go again ...

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a nine day stay and we could not be happier. The view from the balcony of the sun rising over the Sea of Cortez was the perfect start to each day. Every thing you need to enjoy your stay is included in this property. It is furnished attractively and comfortably. The kitchen has every item you need. Wi-fi worked perfectly. The pool , which my as well have been our private pool most of the time, is mere steps away. Easy and quick travel to the lovely town of San Jose del Cabo where you will find any sort of dining or shopping experience you need. Really cannot emphasize enough how thoroughly pleased we were with these accommodations. Thank you Shea.

Perfect Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this wonderful condo and was everything the photos showed. The bedrooms are very spacious with large bathrooms. We wished we would have had another couple or our children along to enjoy it. We sat on the deck every morning and had coffee with an ocean view and at night a glass of wine. We had dinner 3 of the 4 nights at the condo and used the new grille, so relaxing. For us it was a great location as we loved the close proximity to golf and ocean activities. We went to the 7 Seas Seafood Grille at the Cabo Surf Hotel for breakfast 3 mornings and rented paddle boards and kayaks (about 5 minutes away.) Also this unit is located close to the security gate so its easy to drive in and out. The pool was wonderful and we walked over for swims at night and enjoyed a cocktail and the water. We would much rather be close to San Jose than the touristy busy Cabo. San Jose has the old town charm and the shops and restaurants are fantastic. We had a great lunch at Herrarado's which was a tip from a local jewelry shop owner. We especially enjoyed the sushi at Nick-San's a short walk to the Shops at Palmilla. If you are looking for a place to stay with family, friends or a romantic getaway... I would highly recommend this unit. The ease and security of booking and the managers being helpful and responsive makes the trip easy!
