Time moves slowly at Casita 48, a ranch-casual corner estate overlooking the inside coastline of the Baja Peninsula. This Los Cabos villa in Mexico is perched on two levels above the Sea of Cortez, allowing each bedroom to look out onto timeless horizons and lets nature’s beauty provide inspiration within a seamless indoor/outdoor flow.
Casita 48 is the perfect Los Cabos villa for those who want the ultimate privacy a corner expanse can offer but also want the social advantages possible when eight good friends share special holidays together. Of course, this four bedroom, four bathroom villa is also perfect for a family as three of the bedrooms are master spreads with king beds and a fourth bedroom offers two doubles.
All sleeping quarters at Casita 48 come with floor-to-ceiling open verandah sliding doors that let in the sea breezes and emphasize the Mediterranean lifestyle the Baja climate brings. En-suite master bathrooms come with double sinks, marble counters and luxurious bath and shower arrangements. The twin double room features canopy beds as a whimsical design touch. One of the master bedrooms opens onto a corner terrace with an inviting magenta swing bed as a fun touch for lazy afternoon naps.
Decor throughout this Los Cabos villa centers on brightly-hued, plush fabrics with casual themes playing out in the living and dining areas, while the bedrooms manage Mexican fairytale homages that sustain a mood of warmth and comfort. The living room is actually a family room with Nordic-style chairs and a television, all adjacent to an informal dining room for six next to the gourmet kitchen. The kitchen area is separated by a granite dining island with bar chairs. And that kitchen will be manned mornings and afternoons with a dedicated casita chef who will make dishes to order. A nice detail that adds to the comforts is the wine fridge in the kitchen that keeps personal wine labels, pre-stocked or brought, at just the right temperature for perfect pairing experiences.
That wine can be poured by your personal butler at Casita 48. The dedicated butler is available daily to serve meals and cocktails, make arrangements for excursions and spa treatments, load the golf cart, stock groceries, whatever the need. This is your villa vacation. Lifting fingers is not required.
Enjoy that wine or those freshly mixed margaritas on the grand pool patio that maximizes this corner of the world with a sparkling half-moon pool complemented by a floating Jacuzzi and a roaring fire pit nearby. Meals can be taken by the pool to enjoy the seaside splendor. A bar and grill stands at the ready for flash-made fun food, and meals fun or more formal can be enjoyed alfresco on the cozy and shaded table for six.
Perhaps it’s the privacy or sense of it created by a rare corner vantage that makes Casita 48 so attractive. Right-sized for any need or eventuality, the flexibility offered by this spacious villa extends to activities, services and conveniences to be had at the Del Mar location.
Find this gated Los Cabos villa village adjacent to the legendary five-star One&Only Palmilla resort and only a two-minute tootle away by the dedicated casita golf cart. There, find a cluster of well-reviewed restaurants and cafes, a world-class spa, the 27-hole Jack Nicklaus signature Palmilla Golf Course and the Palmilla Tennis Club that features five Har Tru and Plexicushion courts for those who love the game. Del Mar guests are given exclusive access to these onsite amenities making the prestigious resort into an extension of their private villa spread.
Take the club catamaran out for a spin in the Sea of Cortez, considered by oceanographers to be an incredible aquarium of easy-to-observe sea life. Or take some “me” time and book an in-villa massage. Whatever the need, a simple request to the butler …and magic happens.
