Casa del Mar Resort Villa description

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 completed its full renovation in mid-November 2015 and is more beautiful than ever and in full operation. The resort features complete food and beverage service at the main pool, a hacienda style restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, a beach restaurant featuring sushi and other asian specialties as well as a sports bar.

Other amenities including swimming pools, spa services, work out room and tennis courts are all available for our guests. 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 Baja California Sur

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

LUXURY ON THE BEACH

Guest Jeff (Los Angeles, CA)

Date of stay 03/10/11

Review Submitted 04/14/11

.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.

Great visit with our young children.

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Cabo with our children (7 and 5) and stayed at Casa Del Mar - La Luna. It was a wonderful stay. As the other reviews share, it's pretty quiet, so it was nice to go to town a couple of evenings.

There were other younger children visiting so there were other playmates for our kids, otherwise, it might have gotten dull for them.

The condo is perfect. Plenty of space of everyone. The balcony looks directly on to the ocean so you can sleep with the windows open at night and hear the crashing of the waves.

Ivan and Tina, the owners, were a pleasure to work with.

Gorgeous condo with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

I drank coffee every morning while staring at the most gorgeous ocean. My family and I loved this place!

The location is far enough away that you are not overrun with folks trying to sell you something along the beach (we saw only one or two), but close enough that you can get into either San Jose del Cabo or Cabo San Lucas in 20 minutes. The Costco and markets are nearby and very accessible.

The condo itself is perfect for a family of 4-6 people. All the spaces - living room, dining area and bedrooms have amazing views.

The beach in front of the condo was occasionally rough (we had one storm day) but older kids who are strong swimmers should be fine. It's not for smaller kids but for them, they can head to the pool. We wandered into Cabo San Lucas for a day of swimming in a more protected area and that was great for the younger one but my older kids were bored w/o the waves. One of my kids skim boarded (we found a surf shop with a rental) and couldn't be torn away.

There is a small grill on the patio and we grilled most of our dinners. The size of the condo was perfect for us in just about every way. When the weather got a bit too hot out, we made margaritas and watched the Olympic coverage.

One of the other reviewers mentioned bugs. I saw some tiny ants on the countertop on the first day but not sure what the bid deal is. They popped up on day one, didn't get into anything, and then just seemed to be gone as quickly as they appeared. They were teeny tiny little ants (I think? I almost couldn't see them) and never got into any food. I wiped them away and we never saw them again in any room in the house.

I'd definitely recommend this place and think it was a great value given the ocean-front location.

Omg! This condo met our expectations and then some! It was so comfortable. The location of it tops everything! BEACHFRONT like no other. Beautiful views and wonderful sounds of the ocean waves!! The beach is not accessible but the near by Hilton has a man made jetty you can walk to. The staff at the pool bars were fantastic as well. Ivan, Thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay in your place. you were a pleasure to work with.
