Casa del Mar Resort Villa description

Newly remodeled and decorated kitchen, living room, and bathrooms completed by December 2017!

Indulge yourself in luxury at this gorgeous and private 2nd floor, 2 bedroom Villa located in the Casa Del Mar resort in Los Cabos. Very few residences come close to capturing the incredible panoramic view of the Sea of Cortez that this Villa boasts located directly on the beach. Not only can you privately enjoy the incredible view from the HUGE patio, but the open floor plan allows you to take in the view from the kitchen and living area, and BOTH of the 2 bedrooms have open glass doors to these exceptional views. Imagine waking up to the sound of waves crashing, than walking right out to the sand on what seems to be your own private beach.

The Villa features custom Tuscan style design in every room, including adobe style arched brick ceilings, stainless steel kitchen appliances and marble countertops. Since this is privately owned, we have decorated and cared for our place accordingly- beautiful artwork, quality furniture and fine linens.

At over 1700 sq. ft. the unit features a large master suite with a king sized bed and full bathroom with walk-in shower. A second bedroom suite has two queen size beds and a full bathroom w/marble tube and shower. Both oceanfront bedrooms are separated by the living areas, affording each bedroom maximum privacy- the perfect choice for either a family or adults travelling together.

Both bedrooms are oceanfront- unlike the majority of the other 2 bedroom condos at Casa Del Mar where the second bedroom has no ocean view or balcony. The newly remodeled larger balcony space provides room enough outside on this oceanfront balcony for a dining table, lounge chairs and deck chairs--all completely private!

The exclusive, Casa del Mar Golf and Spa Resort hotel and grounds completed a full renovation in mid-November 2015 and is more beautiful than ever and in full operation. The resort hotel features complete food and beverage service at the main pool, a hacienda style restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, a beach restaurant as well as a sports bar.

Access to the hotel services including spa, concierge, pool towels, pool food and beverage service as well as access to hotel restaurants and workout room are all available to our guests for a $30 per day resort fee (per condo not per guest) paid directly to the hotel on a day by day basis.

If you do not wish to pay the hotel resort fee you will still have free access to all the resort pools, beach chairs and umbrellas and tennis courts. We also supply our own beach towels in our villa as well as a fully equipped kitchen. Also, there are many exceptional restaurants a short walk or drive from our resort.

The Casa Del Mar Resort is located on the “Corridor”—mid-way between the bustling tourist community of Cabo San Lucas and the quaint, art-filled town of San Jose del Cabo and provides easy access via car, taxi, or shuttle bus from the airport. It’s a first class condominium community with the extra bonus of having a 5-star boutique hotel on the same property just steps from our villa. Comfortable beach and pool chaise lounges with many inviting swimming pools are set in lush tropical landscaping that is impeccably kept. The hacienda-styled complex is gated and guarded with 24 hour security. This is not a high-rise and densely built resort; no crowded beaches here...Casa del Mar offers beauty and elegance without the commercial trappings and crowds of many resorts located in the Cabo area.

We fell in love with this piece of paradise and are happy to be able to share it.

About Ivan and Tina

Ivan and Tina Rafowitz live in Minneapolis, Minnesota and have two grown children. Ivan is a musician, and Tina is an event planner. They have been vacationing in Los Cabos for several years and finally decided to purchase their own piece of paradise at Casa Del Mar.

Ivan and Tina purchased this condo in 2014

Why Ivan and Tina chose San José del Cabo

We chose La Luna 202 for many reasons. First of all, this unit is very private, quiet and Ocean Front. There is not a thing between this unit and the gorgeous Sea of Cortez--except about 100 feet of sand! We also were so impressed with the custom design of the unit, and how it really captures a mediterranean feel. This is wonderful for our family but also for renters traveling with two couples or children. Most of the 2 bedroom villas at this resort have one small master bedroom with the second bedroom directly behind it meaning the second bedroom does not have views or patio access. Also, other 2 bedroom condos have smaller living rooms or windy staircases (difficult to maneuver). We are just steps to the main pool and parking. However, because we are oceanfront we do not overlook the main pool which some of the other condos do--making our unit less likely to hear the resort or highway noise. We are also just a few steps to the famous Las Ventanas Resort from this condo as well--and we often head there for sushi or drinks in case we feel like something a little different but don’t want to get in the car. Truly, this villa is the Perfect vacation spot and we invite you to stay at our home away from home.

What makes this condo unique

Cabo Real- a world famous golf course, is right by the condo.

.I am a frequent guest of the neighboring Las Ventanas resort, which for a 2 bedroom room typically runs for about $2000-$3000 per night. In these tough economic times- and based on a friends recommendations- I decided to rent this particular beachfront condo at the neighboring Zoetry Casa del Mar resort instead. As much as I love staying at Las Ventanas- I have to admit I actually felt like I was closer to the Las Ventanas pool and restaurants from this condo – literally on the beach, 100 feet from Las Ventanas. So I took advantage of the location to walk up to the amazing Las Ventanas restaurant for dinner and lunch on 2 occasions.

The hotel at Casa del Mar offers great service as well, and I was extremely impressed by their dinner restaurant right on the beach—The Mesquite grill. Another note- I was very pleased with how well the condo was kept up by the owners- top of the line sheets and towels, beautiful new furnishings. It look like it had been totally remodeled as compared to a neighboring condo that I got the opportunity to peek into while I was there. So make sure you see lots of accurate pictures of the condo you rent at Zoetry Casa Del Mar, because the interiors and accommodations seem like they may be drastically different, depending on which unit you rent. If you are used to five star hotel accomodations and want to save a ton of money- this

The condo was 5 star all the way.

  • 5 of 5

The condo itself is beautifully decorated, spacious, and has everything a family or anyone could want to quickly settle in to enjoy vacationing. Yes, the listing description was accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, and the property was clean and well-maintained.

The location is unbeatable. We went directly from the airport in our small rental car with 4 people and their luggage (no room for groceries). Had an early dinner at the hotel and checked out what was already in the condo. The next morning we went to MEGA and discovered that it was "all that and more".

I love the hotel being on the property not only for the convenience of that first meal in Cabo but for their spa services. Two of us took advantage of the masseuse which made the stay even nicer.

Not being able to swim in the ocean directly in front of the condo was not a problem for 2 of the 4 of us since at age 72 I no longer enjoy being knocked over by the waves or sitting in the sand. I'm more of a pool with pool bar type. In fact all of the family enjoyed the pool bar including my young grandson who doesn't know what alcoholic beverages are but enjoys a strawberry smoothie!

My son had to work while on vacation so the wifi was a necessity and one morning while he was working outside at the big table he saw a whale. If you must work while on vacation coupling it with whale watching is an experience that can't be beat.

All of our family group would recommend Ivan and Tina's condo at La Luna and we will likely be back if not in 2017 then 2018.

Amazing luxury beach front condo

  • 5 of 5

I just spent the last 5 days at this stunning condo that is steps from the beach with breathtaking ocean views- we even saw whales from the open air patio. The condo itself is 5 star with a brand new remodeled kitchen with built in wine cooler/storage. In addition, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything a gourmet chef could need. If you are not in the mood for cooking one of the finest resorts in the world is just steps away at Las Ventanas- we enjoyed a couple wonderful meals while staying at Ivan and Tina's condo. The condo itself is in the Casa del mar resort, which is luxurious but also very low key and uncrowded. The actual hotel is only 30 rooms while the bulk of the resort is made of up condos that are privately owned. The property has 5-6 swimming pools which was so much fun for my 5 yo niece as we walked around trying to find her favorite pool of the day. Finally, the hotel has an incredible first class spa that is just steps from the condo. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this condo and the owners- they made the entire process so easy and their condo is just stunning- so comfortable. I will be back! Highly, highly recommend.

I just spent a wonderful week at this property. The condo was just as described but more! Ivan and Tina have gone to great lengths to make it comfortable, welcoming, and well stocked. In addition, the kitchen has recently been remodeled and is just stunning. Not to mention the bedrooms- Ive stayed in many condos and these beds are the most comfortable I have ever experienced. Finally, the views- what can I say other than stunning. Unobstructed views of the ocean that the pictures just don't do justice. And to fall asleep every night to the sound of the waves....heaven. I would highly recommend this condo for anyone looking for a 5 star getaway in a peaceful, quiet setting. I will definitely be back. Lisa

Beautiful! Could not have a better view than Casa Luna 202!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I fell in love with Casa Luna 202! Amazing sunrise and sunsets from the large outside living area. The property is very spacious, tastefully decorated with quality, comfortable furnishings throughout and very clean. The kitchen is nicely equipped with everything you might need. The beds are very comfortable (thank you!!) with quality bedding and linens (thank you!!). We appreciated the extra towels, linens and supplies. We have visited Cabo numerous times and are so happy to have discovered this gem. It is a small, boutique style complex that feels very comfortable and relaxing, away from the business of downtown Cabo and the spring beakers. Ivan and Tina were always very prompt in their communication and provided very descriptive and clear check in/out instructions. We hope to repeat our stay soon!
