Luxury Hacienda, Stunning Views, Infinity Pool, & Meditation Gardens

Bedrooms 4
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Presenting an elegant Mexican Hacienda with unsurpassed ocean views located in a private gated oceanfront community next to the world renowned Palmilla One and Only Hotel and with easy access to several of the most beautiful and private beaches in all of Los Cabos. This entire property is designed to foster memorable moments with close family and friends.

Located on the highly desirable "Cabo Corridor", in between the quaint traditional town of San Jose Del Cabo (5-10 mins drive), with its organic restaurants and art galleries, and the party town of Cabo St. Lucas (15-20 mins drive), you are perfectly situated to enjoy all that Los Cabos has to offer, including world class golf, fishing, surfing, and a vast range of eco tourism experiences in the nearby bays or on the East Cape. Or just relax, stock up with your favorite goodies from the nearby stores and organic markets and spend your days relaxing in the infinity pool, hot tub, and meditation gardens, gazing out into the gorgeous Sea of Cortez and bbq-ing with family and friends under the moon and stars.

Loaded with amenities including crisp cotton sheets, towels, toiletries, and a kitchen with every imaginable amenity, the Hacienda aspires to provide guests with an authentic Mexican experience from its Talavera tile bathrooms to the Saltillo floors and beautiful handset brick ceilings.

While also adding a touch of technology (WIFI / TVs / Netflix, Docking Stations) to reflect today's needs, as well as beach gear (Chairs, Umbrellas, Snorkels, Cooler, Kayaks) to ensure you can comfortably enjoy the secluded beaches below or on your day trips exploring this region.

Designed to flexibly accommodate larger families, 2-5 couples, or groups of friends traveling together, the floor plan offers 4 bedrooms, including two king size master suites, a bunk room with its own bathroom and 4 full size beds, and a detached casita with 2 full size beds that is completely secluded from the main house for those wanting a little privacy. The community offers excellent 24 hour security and is considered extremely safe.

Our amazing property manager lives just a few doors away and we can leave you in complete peace and quiet or provide any required amenity including daily maid service, airport transportation, private chef, mariachi band, recommendations for restaurants and activities, and more. Likewise, in the case of any emergencies, help is literally right around the corner.

We do recommend a rental car for guests staying at our property allowing you access to all that Los Cabos has to offer, the ability to pop to the store for groceries, and ease of access to the beautiful beaches below our home. While the drop dead gorgeous views are the highlight of this property, completely panoramic and inspiring, they do result from our "top of the hill" location.

A little about us: We are kind, genuine, humble people, that love sharing our property with the world and doing everything we can to ensure that your stay with us is a five star experience. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions should you wish to learn more about Hacienda Del Mar or a vacation in Los Cabos.

Saludos :)!

About Matt

Citizens of the world. Home base in california but currently working overseas. Hoping to retire here one day. Blessed with three kids and a beautiful home to share with the world.

Matt purchased this villa in 2016

Why Matt chose Rancho Cerro Colorado

The Sea of Cortez views are magical. The pool and gardens are relaxing. We love the home's authentic Mexican vibe. The community is secure and perfectly located making it easy to access all of Los Cabos.

What makes this villa unique

360 panoramic views. Completely remodeled with brand new furniture and amenities. Amazing property manager just down the street. Secluded beaches below. Lots of privacy for extended families or a few couples. All ensuite bedrooms.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The pictures of this house do not do it justice. We stayed at the house from October 12 to 22, 2017. We are a family of 4 with 3 additional singles. There was more than enough space for all of us. Matt is a great host. From the time we made the reservation until we left Matt and Maria, the house manager, made sure that we were looked after. When we arrived, we had a bucket of beers waiting for us. We had a quick tour of the house and were given instructions on how to use everything. We hired a chef to cook us dinner the first night. I would highly recommend this. We were able to just enjoy the beautiful property while someone else made us dinner and clean up. The food was fabulous and we had left overs that we enjoyed one additional night and then a few of us ate for the next 4 lunches. The house is very well stocked, from the kitchen with cutlery, gadgets, glasses, plates and platters. They even had a Ninja blender which was great for the many smoothies I made for our girls. Also a nice touch was the paper coffee cups with lids that we could take down to the pool. The beds are very comfortable and the towels are so fluffy you will keep wrapped up a little longer than normal. The house is very nicely decorated, very clean and the grounds are well looked after. We used the firepit one night and it is beautiful, to watch the flames dance and hear the crashing of the waves. They have 2 sea kayaks but we did not use them as we were not comfortable entering the ocean as it is quite rough. The pool is fabulous! You can float and look out at the ocean, listen to the ocean for hours on end. You can walk down to the beach, but it is pretty rough to swim in. You can take a nice long walk along the beach. The house is at the top of the hill, so it is quite a work out to get back to the house but worth the effort. The house has many levels, so not meant for the anyone with mobility issues. Maria, the house manager, is a great resource. She helped set up the chef the first night, gave us a great overview of the house and answered all of our questions quickly. My daughter had an ear infection and Maria was able to recommend a doctor and sent me the contact information quickly. We were in to see the doctor within 2 hours of contacting Maria. As the house is in a gated community and the security is constantly driving around so we felt safe all the time. The location is great, just south of Palmilla and just minutes to San Jose Del Cabo.

This home has beautiful ocean views from every room and all the conveniences needed for a great trip

  • 5 of 5

This home is located about 10 min from San Jose and 15-20 min from Cabo, so it is in a good location. Across the street from the property is El Merkado which offers a variety of quick food options, from tacos to Italian, coffee and tea, and even vegan options. The walk to the beach on the property is hilly. For those that like a little excercise it is a fun walk, others may prefer to drive. Also within a quick drive is the beach at Palmilla. The home is stocked with towels, kitchen appliances, pots and pans, etc. it also has beach items like toys, chairs and umbrellas which we very much appreciated. The beds were all comfortable making it easy to relax and get a good nights sleep while listening to the ocean. Matt was good about addressing any issues we had, such as providing more water jugs to extra cleaning after the rain caused water to leak into the Casita one day. I would recommend this property to others.

My family and I went to Cabo to celebrate my 30th birthday! This included my father, mother, sister, brother, boyfriend, and 3 friends (3 couples and 3 singles). Both Matt, the home owner, and Maria, the property manager, were so kind and gracious to my family and I. They were kind enough to communicate with us not only before our trip to set up a chef for my birthday dinner, but they were in constant contact with us throughout our stay to ensure everything ran smoothly.

The listing description is accurate regarding the location, layout, and amenities. My boyfriend and I sleep in the main house in the master suite on the main level with the fireplace. My sister, brother, and friend from college slept in the main house on the second floor in the bunk room. Even though the beds were bunk style, they were full sized, so big enough for adults! My friend from high school and his girlfriend slept in the main house as well on the second floor in the second master suite. My parents resided in the beautiful secluded Casita, which had a full kitchen and bathroom. The pictures of the home are EXACTLY what is depicted and more!!! The 6-level property was clean and well-maintained!

My family and I enjoyed all areas of the house. The fire pit was nice touch to dinner at the beautiful stone table. The pool also set the ambiance during the day and night (really glows at night). We left an adult sized watermelon floaty behind for other guests to enjoy! I would recommend this home to any and everyone! It's suitable for all ages. W thoroughly enjoyed the beach equipment (chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards), it was truly a blessing!

The main road to the neighborhood has everything you need; grocery stores (Walmart, La Comer, and Chedraui), eateries, small shopping center. Our favorite casual eating spot is El B Tete, best tacos!!!! The activities we enjoyed were a dinner cruise, Cabo escape ATVs, Senior Frogs, Clubs: Mandala, Pink Kitty, and Crush.

We thoroughly enjoyed this spectacular place! We are forever grateful for the memories that were created at Hacienda Del Mar and will be back in the future!!!!!!!

The pictures don’t do this house justice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed (group of 3 couples) from 4/18 through 4/22. I am currently writing this in the airport. The home was extremely beautiful and at a prime location. The beach is about a 7 min walk from your home and has breath-taking views. I am assuming it was a private beach because no one else was there. Upon arrival Leon greeted us and provided a tour of the home. The home has all the amenties you could want and is a true home away from home. We purchased food and seasonings and just left for next guest which we assumed everyone was doing. The home is furnished pots/pans, silverwear, papertowels, and odds and ends such as sugar and seasonings. The home provides sheets and towels for your use and their is a washing machine to wash items as well. Walmart and Cosco are about a 10 min drive from the home. There is also another grocery store (Mega) thats sells alcohol and other food items. Leon set up a private chef (Nadia) who cooked us dinner and cleaned up after our meal. Matt also provided us woth recommendations of places to go. There are flyers in the home to excursions around cabo of preferred vendors. Matt was very attentive and answered all questions prior to arrival. There was some construction going on, but honestly I probaly wouldn’t have noticed had Matt not told me prior to my arrival. There were also women that came around and cleaned the grills and was the floors almost daily. This house is nothing short of amazing and I will definitely book again.

Spring Break 2018

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but great things to say about this property and its owner. Our family of 7 stayed for 5 nights. Matt contacted us in advance (which we appreciated) about the construction on the home next door. Yes - we heard a little activity (mostly some hammering/drilling) during the day but it was not an issue at all - and we were outside most of the time. A prior review on this issue was completely overstated. The pool/hot tub was fantastic - never an issue staying warm. The kitchen had everything needed and more. Honestly - the view is almost understated in the pictures - sunrise is stunning. A virtually private beach is within walking distance (if you don't mind walking up the hill!). One only had one question - answered immediately when we called. Our family voted this our best winter vacation ever - much to do with this property!!

Great House, Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four adults and five kids had a great time staying here. There was plenty of room for everyone with lots of privacy when you wanted it. The arrangement of two masters, a bunk room, and detached casita was the perfect configuration for us. The house has amazing views, looking east over the ocean. We saw several whales in the afternoon, and watching the sun come up in the morning was spectacular. The property manager was great and able to quickly resolve a couple of minor issues that came up. We wished we had a couple of extra days, and talked about wanting to come back next year. I highly recommend staying here.

Additional pricing information

Cleaning Fee £113.96
Property Damage Insurance £44.82

Please note: Los Cabos is booming with lots of building activity everywhere. There is currently a single family home being built below and to the side of our home. The project is planned to complete by end of 2017 and results in some potential for noise during the week, strictly between 9-5. If you plan to be out and about during the day (sight seeing, golfing, fishing, etc) this will be a complete non issue. It is also barely noticeable if you are inside the home or in the pool (given the water feature). Many people have told us that there is no need to mention this, however, we believe it is important to be fully transparent to ensure we can earn your five star review. Given this is a new listing and given this inconvenience our rates reflect a 50% discount for guests booking during this time.

We have some additional important house rules:

Signed rental agreement via email prior to arrival.
Quiet hours 10pm-8am
Strictly no smoking inside the house or casita.
No extra guests without prior consent. No unauthorized overnight guests.
Photo ID must match the guest.
No parties in excess of agreed guest count.
