About Sherry Westercamp

My husband and I are from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We have 5 children and bought this fractional ownership villa to enjoy with our family over the Christmas/New Year holiday. We were attracted to this place because of how relaxing it is. My husband and I both work very hard and do not get away much from our home and businesses. Our Monte Cristo villa, within the private gated community (as well as Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach & the Pacifica resorts) enable us to relax and restore to a point we return home feeling renewed.

Sherry Westercamp purchased this villa in 2010

Why Sherry Westercamp chose Paraiso Escondido

The first qualities that most attracted me to this place was the very soft aromatherapy your senses were awakened to when you are either at Sunset Beach or Pacifica. (This light subtle aroma is available in the spas and you can purchase for your villa or to take back home). The chapel that the owner built for his wife at Sunset also attracted me, as I found how relaxing it was to sit and listen to the gregorian/monk chanting in a still place. How wonderful to have a chapel particularly on the holiday of Christmas! I was also attracted to the many soothing water fountains, also pleasing to my senses. The beautiful art that you are first introduced to when you walk into the foyer at Sunset Beach is a huge breathtaking painted statue of Archangel Michael. There are many lovely paintings of various angels and the holy family. If you enjoy rocking chairs, there are many beautiful rockers to sit in along the veranda outside the foyer of Sunset where you can relax and watch the people. Everything the owner has done with the Pueblo Bonito facilities is done with and eye for detail. You feel a sense of peace and wholeness in the way your body, mind and spirit is ministered to. I also enjoy the lighthouse that I watch nearby once the beautiful sunsets have faded. The sea is of course serene by nature, but there are many more natural amenities included here that incorporate healing benefits along with the obvious sanctuary of the sea landscaped with fishing boats, sunrises, sunsets, moon & stars.

What makes this villa unique

Wonderful spas. I am a massage therapist/reflexologist and I personally feel that the spa at Monte Cristo is one of the prettiest and relaxing I have been to!!!

As mentioned earlier, for those who appreciate a chapel on the premise there is a beautiful one which is particularly nice over the Christmas holiday.

Yoga and various other classes are available at both resorts. Sweat lodge and Watsu pool are at the Pacifica.

For those who have food allergies, there is a wonderful local organic market (including local artists) in town that a taxi will deliver you to; market is available two days out of the week (I believe Wed & Saturday). There are grain free options at the market. Also close by there is a California Ranch Market with many gf and organic options.

I think the most unique benefit is the fact that the owner, who does have a home here, has put very much detail into the villas and resorts. I appreciate detail and have heard from travelers that they have not been to a place quite like this before. I have to agree, it is why I wanted to return and always look forward to it! I hope you will agree.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Cabo. Sherry Westercamp’s Monte Cristo home was the perfect vacation place for my family. Sherry was great to work with as were the people at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach. We will definitely go back.

Wonderful, relaxing, vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great trip! The resort is beautiful - many different options for pools and restaurants. We chose to eat off resort most nights but did eat many snacks and lunches poolside. The villa is lovely. Sherry was great to work with - she responded to my many emails and answered all of my questions. The villa is located on the end which is a plus because we only had neighbors on one side. I believe the inside of all of the villas are identical so the location is what is important. Additionally, we could walk to the Montecristo gym and the coffee shop from the villa which was also nice. We travelled with my 18 and 22 year old daughters and my in-laws. There was plenty of room in the villa for all of us. The villa's pool and hot tub were lovely at the end of the day. It would be nice if the resort supplied some more of the basics for a kitchen but that has nothing to do with Sherry!

We would definitely return to Montecristo and stay in Sherry's villa again.

New Year's Stay at the Montecristo

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this villa for New Year's and it was perfect for us. We took advantage of the private pool and hotub and the large kitchen. We also went down to the Pueblo Bonito (adults only) to lounge by their pool/bar and to get a few massages:) Overall, I recommend this place.
