Private Villas for Rent in Los Cabos Most Exclusive Residential Neighborhoods!

What we know as Los Cabos, or simply Cabo, is actually a large area on the Southern End of the Baja Peninsula, comprising the twin beach towns of Cabo San Lucas and Cabo San Lucas, and the Cabo Tourist Corridor that connects them. The Corridor extends for about 20 miles and it’s filled with high-end resorts, golf courses, and stunning beaches. For some reason (proximity to the U.S. among them), Cabo has developed into a luxury living hub in the last 20 to 30 years. While other Mexican destinations may have the upper hand in top-notch resorts (we are looking at you Riviera Maya!), Cabo has become the undisputed #1 when talking about the best town in Mexico for buying or renting a luxurious property.

It all started back in the nineties with Palmilla and the first of much top-notch golf course. It has now exploded into an impressively hot market where there seems to always be some new development on the horizon, offering new and ever-more-original properties and amenities. The reality of Cabo now is one of opportunity. Many celebrities have chosen it as its favorite beach destination and have bought their beach homes here. We are talking about properties in the millions of dollars, so you can get an idea of the kind of market we are talking about. Many of these same villas are available for rent for the better part of each year, as these are properties that would otherwise be empty most of the time.

So here comes another explosion, that of the luxury travel rentals. The degree of luxury and privacy available in these private properties is hard to match even for the most exclusive resorts. No hotel can compete with a private Chef, a swimming pool and Jacuzzi exclusive for you and your friends or family, and the amount of space that only a villa can offer. For these reasons, the luxury travel industry has evolved from a resort-centered one to an industry where private properties and travel rentals have taken center stage. In order to try to introduce some clarity into this real estate and luxury travel boom, let’s go through some of the most exclusive residential neighborhoods and private villa resorts in Cabo, a market no short of options in this segment.

Cabo del Sol

Cabo Del Sol

One of the most famous resort communities in all the peninsula, Cabo del Sol is widely recognized for its unparalleled golf amenities and the outstanding luxury living it offers to residents and visitors alike. The Premier Collection is a set of ultra-luxurious condominiums beautifully decorated in a traditional Mexican style. These properties offer great rental deals and an enviable location overlooking the Sea of Cortez and a couple of holes from the Jack Nicklaus-signature golf course “Ocean”.

On the other hand, the “Desert” course was designed by Tom Weiskopf and provides an interesting contrast with the “Ocean course, as its filled with the astonishingly gorgeous desert landscapes of Cabo. With only 83 condominiums The Premier Collection offers a welcomed blend of privacy and luxury. Each condo is fully-equipped in terms of electronic devices, and enjoy high-end features such as jetted bathtubs, concierge services and access to a private beach, outdoor swimming pool and spa tub.

But make no mistake, Cabo de Sol reputation is centered around its couple of world-class golf courses. Opened back in 1994, The Ocean Course revolutionized the golf scene in the region since its inauguration. With the beauty of the Pacific Ocean in the background, this course stretches along a mile of shores and offers up to seven oceanfront holes. The Ocean is without any doubt, one of the best golf courses in the country. The Desert Course brings the perfect complement to the Ocean one. Every time these two (Weiskopf & Nicklaus) work together, the results are fantastic and golf lovers rejoice all around the world.

Pedregal

Pedregal Cabo San Lucas

With over 40 years of history, Pedregal is one of the most well-established private gated communities in the whole Baja Peninsula. It’s been here since before Cabo became a benchmark name in the travel industry, and has thrived in the re-invention of the destination as a luxury living hotspot. What Pedregal offers is a distinctive Mexican feeling, which is lacking in so many of the newest developments in the area. Built on a series of hills overlooking the ocean, the properties at Pedregal are connected by quaint cobblestone streets that sets the tempo and atmosphere of the whole community. This is a place where life moves at a slower pace and that’s one of its most precious assets.

Pedregal residents and visitors enjoy access to a private beach on the Pacific Ocean side of the peninsula. There is also a Fitness & Wellness Center, a children’s park with playground, a professional tennis club, and even a bilingual private K-12 school. In a sign of the importance Pedregal puts on delivering a world-class experience to its residents, it offers private water distribution services to all its properties, making a point of not depending on the city authorities to guarantee the comfort of its home-owners and visitors.

Its privileged location is one more of the several advantages that Pedregal enjoys. Set within walking distance of all the main landmarks of Cabo San Lucas such as the Downtown, the Golden Zone and even the Marina, this community offers both privacy and the comfort of being located near all the fun stuff. This unique location, between the Pacific Ocean and the mountains where its nestled, provides also some of the most breathtaking views available in Cabo.

Palmilla

Palmilla Los Cabos

Palmilla is widely recognized as Cabo’s “Grand Dame”. Built-in 1959 by the son of a Mexico’s ex-president, the Palmilla Hotel originally could only be reached by private plane or yacht, as there was no road to Cabo up until 1974. However, the Palmilla Hotel quickly developed a taste for celebrities and became a hotspot for Hollywood stars and politicians alike. Located on a secluded hill on the eastern part of the peninsula, it provides privacy and luxury in strides. Not for nothing Cindy Crawford and George Clooney among many other celebrities built their villas here.

Back in the nineties, Palmilla was sold to an American businessman and entrepreneur Don Koll, who put in march a huge expansion and re-design of the resort, setting the standard for luxury living in the region ever since. Its 27-hole Jack Nicklaus signature golf course played an important role in that, as the community became synonym with world-class golf. It was the first time ever that Jack Nicklaus designed a golf course in Latin America and the experience was such a huge success that there are now over twenty Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses just in Mexico.

Palmilla features ocean and mountainside properties in a large collection that includes 2-bedroom condos, estate lots and private villas. The Sea of Cortez in the background and the desert landscapes of Cabo make for an extraordinary setting that is so hard to replicate, which is definitely one of the main reasons that are behind Los Cabos extraordinary rise to prominence as a luxury travel and living hotspot.
