About David A, Huffman

This is our dream vacation home that we purchased and completely redecorated last year. Our very active family enjoys spending time at the beach club, fishing, playing golf, tennis, and backgammon on the villa's patio and terrace. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or need additional information at 405-642-2477. Thank you for your interest!

David A, Huffman purchased this villa in 2016

Why David A, Huffman chose Palmilla

GLORIOUS 180 DEGREE VIEW! PRIME LOCATION! Excellent Condition! Fully equipped! Private, charming, and beautifully decorated. Villas Del Mar, Palmilla is the premiere place to be along the Cabo corridor. High security, gated community.

What makes this villa unique

If you can drag yourself away from the privacy and spectacular views at the villa, the Club 96 Beach Club is the place for relaxation by the pool, great dining or fun and games on the beach with a multitude of boats and water toys. Club 96 also has a new Sports Bar. Additional admission cost applies for Club 96 and Esperitu Fitness Center.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It was such a delightful stay! Waking up to the glorious view was very therapeutic! The Guest Services Manager and his staff took care of everything.

Wow! Casita 17 at Villas Del Mar absolutely exceeded all of our expectations and then some. First, the sweeping vistas...David is not kidding when he says they have the best view! Simply breathtaking, and not just once, but every single day. Waking up and looking out at the brilliant blue Sea of Cortez with the One & Only just below and the Cabo coast stretching for miles left and right was very hard to leave. We loved swimming in our private pool/spa at all times of the day and night -- especially fun for our teens. The outdoor furniture was also very comfortable and well planned out. It was a bit extra, but Club 96 was so worth it! The amenities at the Club, I thought, were much better than staying at a hotel -- plus the swimmable beach is rare in Cabo --and they even had a real bocce ball court! We had all of the room our family needed and then some, with fine food, a spa, brand new, huge fitness center and resort amenities that we always love at a fine resort. Plus, we could eat at The One & Only every day for breakfast or dinner. Just a fun, 5-minute golf cart ride away! A day did not go by as we entered the courtyard main door leading down the stairs to the view of the pool, spa, fire and sweeping ocean views, that we literally smiled each and every time. The house itself it stunning. The beds were very comfortable, furniture and art perfectly suited for a luxury vacation place without being stuffy or pretentious. Loved cooking here too -- the kitchen has high-end appliances, a grill and is stocked with every single item you could want for to make an amazing, local meal. David the owner and the staff at VDM was the cherry on top! Elda, Fernando, Ramon, Victor, Juan(pool), Rosey(masseuse), Manuel(trainer), Mimos(beach), security, valet -- EVERYONE really made us feel welcome and met our every request and need. From dinner prepared in the casita upon our arrival with a private chef to car services to a shopping excursion to dinner reservations outside of the property, nothing was missed and everything was perfecto! David, the owner, was the best owner we've ever had the pleasure of working with. He not only answered all of our many questions before the trip, he also gave us excellent recommendations and was diligent throughout our stay to make sure that the staff followed through. After trips to The Ritz in Grand Cayman and The Four Seasons in Costa Rica, we thought we had found paradise, but Casita 17 just topped our list! Muchas Gracias!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Michelle for the very nice review! We are so glad to have had you and your family for 8 days and so glad you enjoyed our villa with all its amenities. Villas del Mar and Palmilla is really the premium along the corridor. We are constantly trying to improve the experience; this summer we will extend the patio area out slightly so that the view will be even greater than 180 degrees; install a wood ceiling on the veranda and; have all new patio and veranda furniture replaced. Hope to have you back again soon. David

1st Class Luxury at its Finest!

  • 5 of 5

Do this for yourself! This beautiful home could not have been any more perfect for our vacation. It is difficult to rate our favorite experience as they were all top notch! The view of The Sea of Cortez was breathtaking. The location of the villa is dead center and we saw it ALL. We witnessed constant whale sightings as added entertainment. The floorplan worked perfectly for all three couples as each bedroom was totally private, charmingly appointed, and had its own unique views. The outdoor entertainment areas were truly the best. We kept moving from one area to another during our stay just so we could take it all in! While it was fun to go out for lunch or dinner we really preferred staying at home for sunset cocktails, dinner cooked on the grill followed by desert and fire pit time. Late night swimming was fun too!

The beach is a one minute golf cart ride from the villa. Club 96 has a magnificent multi-pool area with several restaurant choices. We ate under our umbrellas on the beach. The area had just about every beach toy imaginable. We also played golf at neayby Palmilla Golf Club...every hole had spectacular views. If you're looking to be pampered and live like royalty we very highly recommend you check this out!

Simply gorgeous! Outstanding property!

  • 5 of 5

The home has the most spectacular view in the area. The furnishings are beautiful, outdoor living at its' best! Each bedroom has all the amenities, and the "bird's nest" has its' own large terrace for relaxing and massages! You never have to leave the house to enjoy sunning, swimming and whale watching! Easy access to the beach and Club 96 by golf cart! I would recommend this to anyone wanting the ultimate Cabo experience!

A definite 10!!!

Great Time in San Jose

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Our family just spent long weekend at Casita 17. Best weekend my wife and I have had in years (wink, wink) This place has it all. The layout is perfect, open family area and patio with unbelievable view of the water. Hot tub, infinity pool and fire pit and three separate private bedrooms. We put our teen boys upstairs and never heard a peep. Admittedly they fought over which could use the outside daybed, but after we worked out a swap each night the vacation went perfectly.

Like everyone else – can’t say enough about the excellent service and amenities… Can’t wait to go back.

Three couples for a week - the best vacation we have had in years! Casita 17 is the most fabulous villa! The view is fabulous and the decor is elegant yet casual. The villa is completely private. Villas del Mar is the finest resort along the whole corridor with great service from the manager and the Club 96 is where we spent most off our days. Dinner on the veranda overlooking the Palmilla One & Only Resort was so romantic or in San Jose was lots of fun. We saw no reason to even get close to Cabo San Lucas.

Owner's Response: Thanks Lucy, we appreciate your comments and are so glad you enjoyed our newly redecorated home! The view really is spectacular. I also agree with you that there is little reason to venture outside the gates of Villas Del Mar, but San Jose is really charming - glad you were able to enjoy one of the wonderful restaurants. Our Manager and concierge are so attentive. Come again! David
