Book This Home!

Post Date : December 3, 2020

My family and I just returned from a week long glorious stay at Casita 17. We have been traveling to Cabo for over 20 years and this is by far one of the best places we have ever stayed in. On this trip, there were 5 adults and 2 children, there are three comfortable bedrooms and lots of room throughout to enjoy, particularly the outside. Casita 17 has all of the 5 star amenities you could need, with the privacy and intimacy of having your own home. So for example, you can cook (the kitchen has everything possible thing you will need) OR have a private chef do all the cooking. OR a combination of both, which we did. We highly recommend Chef Carlos and Butler Anaise. The Chef will prepare a 5 diamond meal the you will never forget. They will take care of everything so you can truly enjoy your vacation. The home has an amazing smart music system, books, towels, games, small beach toys - everything. We recommend enjoying massages by Rosey on the Birds Nest. The views are SPECTACULAR from every room in the house. We especially loved the pool on the main level, and sitting around the fire having drinks and playing games at night. We got to go down to the beach and watch the turtles get released into the ocean and we even caught a few whale sightings. If you are in the mood for the beach, you can take the included golf cart down to Club 96. The beach is swimmable, and they have lots of beach toys and activities, lounge set up, food and drinks. There are many, many restaurants both casual and fine dinning. If you want casual Tres Gallos now has a location in San Jose. Food amazing and they have live music. Lots of fun! There is fine dinning at the One and Only. You have lots of options. The neighborhood is quiet and neighbors are thoughtful and friendly. Overall, there is no need to go far to get everything you need including grocery stores. This location is also very close to the airport as opposed to San Lucas. David goes above and beyond the make sure you have a great stay from beginning to end. He is very easy to deal with and takes a lot of pride in his home which is probably why its top notch. We can’t wait to come back!

Casita 17 is INCREDIBLE!!! We have stayed at numerous homes in the Cabo area, including the posh Villas Del Mar Resort and this is far and away our favorite rental. The pictures really dont do the views justice. Every where you turn - water, water everywhere and the bougainvillea is amazing! There were a total of two couples and 2 kids in our group for a week. We had a blast! The villa was fully equipped and everything worked. If we had an issue, Luis, the Guest Service Manager was there in less than 10 minutes. We stayed by the villa s pool most days and ate in most nights, saw very little reason to venture out. We had a chef two nights. The owner, David Huffman was great to work with, he made certain everything was exactly to our liking. Cant wait to go back.


Didnt want to leave!

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.

Paraíso perfecto!

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!!

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!!!

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.

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!

Great location, close to San Jose shops and food. Close by grocery and a Costco for cooking in the spacious kitchen. Community clubs offer many activities. Super lay out with plush finishes everywhere. Very comfortable and relaxing. All this plus whales and turtles! Cannot wait to return...Thanks!

Really could not have been nicer and the views are spectacular. And I’m not one for exaggeration. We loved being there!
