This striking, seaside villa sits in the very heart of Pedregal's Valley of the Blue Moon, Cabo San Lucas' premier residential community. This elite slice of Pedregal takes its name from the surreal, silver-blue reflection that illuminates the tiny valley when the moon is bright. Unlike the oldest section of Pedregal just above the marina, the Valley of the Blue Moon is sheltered from downtown’s late-night/early morning party racket by a stony mountain ridge.
You simply will not find a better location for a vacation rental anywhere in Los Cabos. Secluded above dramatic cliffs on the Pacific Side – just west of Land’s End – it’s as though you are in your own private paradise. In reality, though, downtown Cabo is literally moments away, less than a mile down the mountain, by taxi or car. Imagine: Great restaurants, amazing shopping, and legendary night life are all within easy reach (walking distance for the heartiest of souls), but you can slip off to luxurious peace and quiet anytime by just passing through the Pedregal gate (professionally guarded 24/7), coming up the mountain’s cobblestone road, and passing into Casa Fuente’s serene courtyard.
Casa Fuente is a spacious, custom-built, three-bedroom/four bath villa. Designed in 2001 by a prominent local architect, it is furnished in an attractive, authentic Baja style. It boasts a rare mix of Old-World Mexican charm with all the cutting-edge conveniences of contemporary living. The heated pool and stonemason’s barbecue island bookend a high-walled yard that is ideal for day-after-day private, outdoor relaxing. The entire villa is enclosed by a 12-foot perimeter wall, making perfect the sense of seclusion. Yet the pool deck and every room in the villa enjoys fiber optic-enabled, high-speed WiFi that is superior to what is found in most U.S. cities.
In Spanish, 'fuente' means fountain. Casa Fuente takes its name from the fountain built by Pedregal's founders next to the villa’s south wall. Its soft gurgle greets your arrival, as you gaze out on the Pacific Ocean. Entering the villa for the first time, you pass with eagerness through a massive, wrought-iron gate. This brings you into a lovely tiled courtyard peppered with palms and made fragrant by a lime tree flourishing under the desert sun. Continuing through this courtyard takes you to its immense, wrought iron and glass front door.
Once inside, you behold a unique wall of Mexican onyx spanning from floor to ceiling on your right. Cut thin and backlit, it makes one of the most spectacular entry-way lights you’ll ever witness. Directly before you lies Casa Fuente’s living room. Its curved leather couch beckons to you. Its cutting-edge entertainment system features a 55-inch, curved Samsung high-definition television. Watch your favorite sporting events and shows. A Dish satellite receiver offers more than 250 channels, including a sports package. Even better, there is a Bose® sound system. Or perhaps you have a movie on your phone – or photos that you took of Cabo’s sensational sights earlier that day – you’d like to see on the big screen? You can do that effortlessly and wirelessly with the Apple TV device. Another option is the Blu-Ray player; watch one of the movies in the villa’s library or one that you brought with you. Looking for a more interactive experience or some friendly competition? Challenge one of your guests to an X-Box One competition on the villa’s state-of-the-art gaming console. A variety of games are provided for your enjoyment.
Let’s not forget, this is Cabo. Right off the living room is the walk-in wet bar and bar table. It comes completely stocked with glassware – whether your libation of choice is a margarita, wine, scotch, or something in between – you’ll find all the drinkware and accessories you need to make bartending a breeze. There is seating for three in the bar. There is also one bathroom on the villa’s ground level, located a dozen steps from the bar.
Passing through the bar, you find yourself in the kitchen. Updated in December 2014, the thoroughly modern, gourmet kitchen has all the conveniences: oven, large refrigerator and freezer, microwave, both a standard and a Keurig coffee maker, toaster, blender, gas stove-top and dishwasher. The kitchen is spacious, so you and your guests will have plenty of room to cook and mingle. The villa’s open floor plan allows those in the kitchen to keep a close eye on whatever is playing on the big screen. Of course, the kitchen and bar come fully stocked with an abundance of cookware, glasses, dishware, silverware, and knives. Even if you are serving Thanksgiving dinner for a large group, you will find everything you need close at hand.
Immediately off the kitchen is the dining room with an attractive table that spaciously seats six (or add a leaf to just as easily seat 8). Additional seating at the bar table ten feet away means that Casa Fuente comfortably accommodates 11 dinner guests inside. Of course, there is additional dinner seating outside on the pool deck.
One of the finest things about Cabo San Lucas is its weather, which is ideal for outdoor living most of the year. Casa Fuente’s architect -- a local educated in Paris -- understood first-hand how people like to live in Los Cabos. As a result, he artistically integrated outdoor living into Casa Fuente’s design. Two large sliding glass doors on Casa Fuente’s west wall offer you a seamless transition between inside and outside. And just off the living room, the layout affords a shaded, poolside dining table.
No Cabo villa is complete without a heated pool and plenty of room to lounge on its edge. Casa Fuente does not disappoint. Four plush chaise lounges allow you to stretch out comfortably in the sun. There are two, large patio umbrellas to cast shade. There is also a Bluetooth speaker on the pool deck that plays whatever music you have on your phone, iPad or other Bluetooth-enabled device. Or, if you’d prefer to go old-school, there is a CD player for your use as well, so be sure to pack your favorites before leaving home.
Hopefully you are planning to barbecue while in Cabo, because Casa Fuente is the perfect place for it. Whether you’ll be grilling the fish you caught that morning, ribs from the neighborhood butcher or marinated steaks from Costco, you will not find a better barbecue anywhere in Cabo San Lucas. Period.
One of Casa Fuente’s recent upgrades is a Bull®-manufactured, Angus-model barbecue. Local stonemasons using exquisite Cantera-bricks imported from the Mexican mainland hand-built the barbecue island. With four-burners providing 75,000 BTUs (no, that’s not a typo), you will have all the power and control you need to make your meal a masterpiece of outdoor culinary perfection.
Casa Fuente’s barbecue level offers plush seating for four beneath a large umbrella and around a large coffee table. This same area also affords a wonderful place to sit with your guests on Cabo’s famed warm evenings -- under the valley’s renowned blue moon -- savoring a bottle of wine.
If you are sharing the villa with other couples, you will quickly come to appreciate that Casa Fuente’s architect created the ground level for living, while the upstairs is reserved for bedrooms and remaining bathrooms. Three of each to be exact. Go to bed early or sleep late, the fun continues downstairs without disturbing or inhibiting anyone.
Climbing the stairs to the second level you will discover that it was painted with painstaking artistry. At the top of the stairwell, you will surely pause to admire the wall murals. On your left is an intricate design of four flower pots. Grape vines are painted growing around the bedroom door on the opposite wall. Open the door to the room we have named De la Luna Azul (“of the Blue Moon”) and you find Roman–style columns on both sides of a window that looks out to the west and affords a stunning view of the uppermost stretch of the Valley of the Blue Moon. This room is furnished with two twin beds. Its bathroom, located a few steps away, has an immense Mexican-tile shower and dual vanity.
Next is the room that without question is the artistic highlight of the villa’s many charms. It is one of the villa’s two master bedrooms. We call this one the Del Fuente room because its south-facing balcony is right above the fountain (in Spanish, “fuente”) for which Casa Fuente is named. Above its queen bed is a large, original oil painting of four young Mexican girls in traditional dresses walking way carrying baskets on their heads. Please see the photos. What's more, the ceiling of this room is an amazing brick dome, a specialty of the elite craftsmen who built the homes of Pedregal. The Del Fuente Room also boasts its own bathroom, complete with a dual vanity, a Jacuzzi tub, and a shower.
The villa’s other master bedroom we have named the Del Mar (“Of the Sea”) bedroom. Facing the front of the house, its immense windows look east out through the lower stretch of Valley of the Blue Moon to the sea far below. Leave the curtains open if you’d like to watch from your king-size bed as the sun rises and the fishing boats head out in the morning. There is a large balcony off this room, furnished with two huge captains' chairs with ottomans, making this the ideal place to slip away in the late-evening for some quiet time under the moon or to watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee. The Del Mar bedroom has its own bathroom with a dual vanity, a shower and an immense bathtub.
There is a fitness center for your use, as well as tennis courts – both complimentary with your rental. If you have a car, you are welcome to park it out of the sun in Casa Fuente’s secure, attached garage. You will find this lovely villa is an excellent choice for a memorable vacation.

About Perry Woodward
The Woodward family of Gilroy, California, welcomes you to their Cabo San Lucas dream home. We spent more than a decade looking for just the right home in Cabo. We bought this custom villa not only to rent, but also to enjoy ourselves. We hope you have as much fun here as we do, so we’ll make certain you have the information you’ll need and are not just left guessing about all that Cabo has to offer. Before you arrive, and even after, you will receive a lot of information on what to do in Cabo, how things really work, where everything is, and where to find the best of the bests. We are available to answer your questions about the local restaurants and activities with an insider’s knowledge. You will be free to be as busy as you want, or to just relax beside the pool and barbecue in the idyllic setting afforded by Casa Fuente's high-walled yard.
Perry Woodward purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Perry Woodward chose Pedregal
We have been visiting Cabo San Lucas regularly for more than a decade. Over that time, we explored dozens of different communities in the area. We concluded – as many, many others before us – that Pedregal is the number one place to have a vacation home in the Baja. With two daughters in elementary school, we wanted a private, secure, ample-sized, three-bedroom house with a heated pool. We wanted it to have an authentic, attractive Baja ambience. We also wanted to be close enough to town to walk, but not so close that the loud, late-night party noise that emanates from the marina district would disturb us. In Pedregal’s Valley of the Blue Moon, we found it all. And what we love most about Casa Fuente is that it was designed by a local architect who intuitively understood how people want to live in Cabo. For example, the high-wall that encircles the villa allows all its windows and doors to be open to the breeze. This is perfect for those months when the fresh air blowing up the cliffs from the Pacific offers just the right amount of cooling. Plus, unlike a lot of rentals in the Cabo area, Casa Fuente retains a tasteful local ambiance with attractive Baja-style furnishing and plentiful local art.
What makes this Villa unique
Casa Fuente's three large, comfortable bedroom suites, well-equipped kitchen, tasteful Baja décor and open, flowing living area will make you feel right at home. Each guest has ample room to relax and play in this spacious, 2,700 square-foot villa. Exquisite designer touches include a massive original painting by a well-known local artist, a brick dome ceiling, an entryway onyx wall that has to be seen to be understood (see photos), granite and marble countertops, and colorful textiles. Every room has attractive Mexican-style furnishings and artwork that evoke the vibrant traditions and colors of the Baja. The second level offers lovely sights of the Pacific Ocean. Outside, a lovely private poolside setting offers space to dine and relax. Read a book in one of the lounge chairs, relax in the shade, take a swim in the inviting, heated pool, or enjoy some lunch prepared on the world-class barbecue. Casa Fuente offers a wonderful outdoor setting to gather with friends and enjoy the year-round, warm Baja weather. Pedregal homes have been featured in Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, Architectural Digest, Forbes and the Robb Report. It is a gated community with around the clock security patrols 365 days a year. At Casa Fuente, you will have access to the pristine, secluded Pedregal Beach. There is a fitness center for your use, as well as tennis courts – both complimentary with your rental. If you have a car, you are welcome to park it out of the sun in Casa Fuente’s secure, attached garage. Nearly all three-bedroom vacation rentals in Pedregal are either condos (which tend to be smallish, cookie-cutter uninteresting, and densely occupied) or are in Pedregal’s first phase; meaning, on the hillside overlooking the marina (so the legendary partying that goes on there can keep the racket cranked up well into the wee hours). Casa Fuente is the much quieter, private and artistic alternative.

Casa Fuente was a dream! Everyone (owner/hosts) were so helpful and prompt in responding to any questions we had. The house is exactly like the pictures and better. We spent our afternoons poolside in the sun having BBQ’s on the house grill and it was paradise. If you are looking for a beautiful and private place to relax with your group Casa Fuente is THE place to go!
Great, adorable house!
Great House, Great, Sade Location.
Great location, quiet, beautiful sunrises, amazing concierge services. Space to spread out.
We loved staying in Pedregal, private beach (maybe 6 people in a very long and wide beach)and no vendors selling goods. Note, you can’t swim there or really even get close to the water. Ana, the property manager was AMAZING: quick to respond to every need and request. We would not hesitate to book here again. TIPS FOR FUTURE RENTERS: Have Ana, purchase groceries ahead of time or stop at the Walmart in town...it is 10 minutes away. The local organic grocery nearby is overly priced but well stocked. There is not really a keurig coffee maker, so just buy ground coffee. There is no soap or shampoo so be sure to bring your own. There is plenty of laundry,kitchen detergent, toilet paper, paper towels and beach towels, as well as a fully stocked kitchen. Water pressure is not great, best to not have more than one shower running at a time. All in all we loved it. The beds were very comfortable with nice sheets and each bedroom has an air-conditioner. A cleaning crew comes every other day which is very nice! We had Ana arrange for massages at the house...one of the best I’ve ever had!
Thanks for staying at our home in Cabo. It is great to know you loved it as we do. You are right about the water pressure; in fact, we have a major overhaul of the entire water system planned for next week. We’ve had that issue for a couple months now. And we are not sure where the Kuerig went - perhaps it was mistakenly put in a locked cabinet on our last departure. We will find or replace it soon. Really appreciate the constructive feedback. Hope you come back soon! - Perry
sunrise at pedregal
The spacious villa was perfect for our family of 5 adults. We especially enjoyed the outdoor area by the pool where we could bbq, play cards, read and relax together. Morning sunrise outside the master BR was beautiful. Ana was very helpful and accommodating with good recommendations for restaurants and activities. The only glitch was a water issue one night, but Ana was quick to get someone out to repair the issue so it was only a minor inconvenience. Communication was efficient; the villa was clean and in a good location. We would all highly recommend Casa Fuente to friends and family.
We loved our stay!
We had a fantastic stay at Casa Fuente and will definitely be back! This home offers anything you could want and more.
Most perfect home to get some R&R. My family enjoyed it to the fullest. Can't wrong with a rental.
Most excellent service and support from both owners and Cabo rental managers. Beautiful home inside and out, access to all that we needed and it was the perfect size for a family of 6. We bought our own food at a Walmart for snacking and cooking for all 5-days that we were there. Location made it convenient to walk to Cabo's main pier, beaches, and pharmacies and convenient stores if needed. The home owners are registered members to the Pedregal spa, so we were able to use the spa services at our convenience. Super secure neighborhood, so peace of mind to walk around or go for a morning jog around the Pedregal neighborhood. My wife and I are runners, so we loved it. Housekeeping was done 2X in the 5-days we there. More than enough, but then again we are clean freaks. The swimming pool size and cleanliness was perfect. My kids loved it. We do plan to go back, and hopefully we can stay at same home and/or another home at the Pedregal.
