If you can hear the waves at Beachfront Villa 481 in Los Cabos, then you can feel the soft breeze and smell the enlivening salt air from your cozy bedroom lair. While there are plenty of villas in Los Cabos running the lengths of the Baja Peninsula from Cabos San Lucas to San Jose del Cabos, few of them will offer the beachfront intimacy within the prodigious and ambient layout that you will find at beachfront Villa 481 in Los Cabos. The four-bedroom, four bathroom, 4,500-square-foot spread does not disappoint in delivering the beach vacation you envision, whether accompanied by your family or a bevy of buddies and besties, with plenty of space and artsy atmosphere all boosted by a stunning infinity pool and the clean, quiet beach just beyond.
Just beyond the beach straddling the Sea of Cortez in Los Cabos, Villa 481 sleeps eight people in perfect comfort with two king bedrooms, one double/double and one with twin beds to match a variety of lodging needs for guests. Three of the bedrooms come with terrace patios with lounge furnishings and views of the beach and sea. The twin room is a win with small children and older kids who need a desk and computer set-up to play games or study. Each bedroom attaches to a bathroom with spacious master baths bringing special Spanish colonial ambience in tiling arrangements and grand window designs.
A contemporary neo-Colonial Mexico motif runs through Los Cabos Villa 481 in décor and style making this villa as much as a destination as it is a home away from home. Find tasteful plush furnishings mixing with regional rustic wood antiques, terracotta tiles, talevera ceramics, wrought iron light fixtures and decorative pre-Columbian totems complemented by rough Roman columns. Colorful soft cushions and vintage Mexico wall art complete the interior experience that flows outward to the 1,800-square-foot terrace where so much of the vacation takes place.
Start your morning with coffee on your private bedroom patio, delivered with breakfast or breads by your villa butler. Or have that coffee at the granite marble breakfast bar that separates the festive cucina from the eight-seat formal dining table. The gourmet kitchen is manned mornings and afternoons by a dedicated villa chef who can take meal requests and ensure the shelves are stocked with favorite foods. This is your time, your vacation. No need to lift a finger – unless you choose.
Follow breakfast with a morning walk on the beach. Step off your patio to an ocean strand that seems to be all yours and even wade into the surf. Finish your walk with a dip in the pool and then a lazy session drying off on one of the chaises. When it’s time for lunch, your butler will appear with appetizing repasts that seem just right for the time – perhaps a creative gourmet twist on tacos or quesadillas, a sparkling salad and watermelon juice. No cans here, no pre-fab packages – all is whipped up fresh and to order.
Later, in the haze and laze of the setting sun, you will enjoy fresh margaritas and homemade nachos and lingering conversation before making plans for dinner. Have that dinner in your formal dining room or practically on the water, making use of your patio dining area. The gas barbeque there is perfect for what the moment calls for – perhaps some grilled fresh-caught seafood and endless cervezas.
Later in the evening you can take another beachwalk under the stars and then retire for an evening around the fireplace and television in your comfy living room. At the end of the evening, your bed is waiting, floor-to-ceiling windows open to the sounds of the sea and the promise of deep dreams.
