About Elite Destination Homes

At Elite Destination Homes we bring family & friends together in some of the world’s most inspiring vacation homes. Our luxury rental villas are stunning, comfortable properties located in highly sought after destinations across the globe. We handpick our homes based on their distinctive features and the care given to them by their owners.

Why Elite Destination Homes chose San Jose del Cabo

Palmilla Retreat is the prefect getaway for our family. The private beach and two pools are excellent for relaxing with margaritas and delicious quesadillas. We enjoyed golfing and snorkeling during the day and it was such a treat to be served breakfast outside with the magnificent view of the ocean. The home is so comfortable and we loved enjoying evening cocktails on the upper terrace and unwinding after a long day in the sun.

What makes this villa unique

* Outstanding indoor/outdoor living spaces with private pool, hot tub and firepit

* Magnificent views

Guestbook comments from the manager

We (2 adult sons and I) enjoyed the Palmilla Retreat from 27 of Feb to 3rd of March 2015.

The property itself is in excellent condition and well furnished. The views from the dining patio and the pool deck were fantastic.

When we arrived, we were greeted by Eve who welcomed us with hot quesadillas and cold beer before showing us around the property. Eve was delightful, we had her come back to prepared a full meal on one of the nights. The meal she prepared was by far the best we had during our stay.

Although we did not need, we noticed high chairs, baby gates, etc in the garage.

We utilized Paul's concierge services several times to arrange golf, dining and other activities.

Finally, the reservation, confirmation and payment process was a breeze and Jeanne was a real pleasure to boot!

I highly recommend this property and Elite Destination Homes.

Birthday Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Spent 3 fabulous nights at this Palmilla Retreat to celebrate my birthday with my two sons. It was a perfect launch point for fishing, golf, and wonderful dinners in town and in Palmilla. Our reception and the quality of the villa were awesome and we'll soon be coming back. Thanks for a great visit!

Great trip.

  • 5 of 5

The place was great. Easy walk to Palmilla beach--a good swimming beach, even for young kids. Pool and spa kept the kids busy. Just a few minutes from town. And the golf cart was a nice perk (you can take it over the highway to nearby restaurants). The pictures don't do the view from the balcony justice.

It was also great to see the area bounce back from Odile so quickly. We'll be back.

Magical vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our week at this destination was magical and has left me with a deep longing to return to this property.

I had strong concerns about vacationing in Mexico after disappointing trips to Acapulco and Cancun but Cabo San Jose is fantastic!

The Villa de Montana rental is in a LOVELY and safe location in Cabo San Jose. It has an ideal layout with two king/master suites on the lower level and a room with 2 twins on the upper level. The furnishings are quite beautiful and comfortable. My husband is a chef so we prepared many of our meals in the well-appointed kitchen- shopping at the local Mega store for groceries. The beach is a 2 minute ride by golfcart. The internet/telephone access were free, which we greatly appreciated in case of an emergency.

We explored distant wild and remote beaches up the West and East coasts but appreciated coming home to the luxury of this property. Cerritos beach had excellent surfing lessons with Mario's surf-school. The drive is remote and I would only suggest it if you love an adventure and our comfortable exploring the wild side of this area. We also explored Cabo Pulmo National Park. It's a must-see for nature-lovers but it's extremely remote and and I wouldn't do it again without renting a jeep. Also, bring food and drinks whenever you leave the towns to drive up the coast because there aren't places that you would necessarily stop for food along the way.

We dined one evening at the Palmilla resort. I'd recommend the Palmilla for one special night. Just check the prices and know what you are ordering before-hand as the cost might shock you. It's a must see at night!

Cabo San Lucas is a quick 20 minute drive along the coast. We ventured into the town to depart on an excellent whale-watching adventure that Paul had arranged for us. I can't stress how grateful I was that we were not staying there. It was a Spring-break atmosphere for adults with every tourist trap imaginable. The difference between San Jose and San Lucas is significant.

I recommend this location for it's beauty and safety. It was relaxing, quiet, safe, clean and a good value for it's location. The airport is 30 minutes away and easy to get in and out of. We received excellent service from Jeanne as our U.S. contact and Paul, the property concierge.

The Palmilla resort and area are very expensive and exclusive. Staying at this location made that available to us without the ridiculous cost. I hope to go again. It was magical!

Palmilla - the best beach in Cabo!
Car: recommended

Located at the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, where the azure Sea of Cortés flows into the mighty Pacific Ocean, Cabo San Lucas – Cabo to those who know it – is a place that offers visitors the best of land and sea. You can tee up for a round of golf at one of the area’s many world-class courses, or ride horseback through hills of spectacular beauty. Relax poolside or picnic on a sandy beach. All of this is yours when you stay at one of Elite Destination Homes’ Cabo San Lucas vacation rentals. Overlooking the ocean and appointed with casual elegance, our homes in Cabo remind those fortunate enough to stay there that life just doesn’t have to be so complicated, or move quite so fast – at least when you’re on vacation.

Looking for some R&R? Cabo San Lucas vacation rentals are the solution, with Elite Destination Homes. To make your vacation even better, our planning and concierge service will cater to virtually every need, providing recommendations on “can’t miss” dining and other activities for an authentic Cabo experience.
