I knew I had entered another world when my driver pointed out the breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean converging with the Sea of Cortez as we traveled up a picturesque cobbled road to what was to be my fantasy paradise for the next couple of days. Upon my arrival at Villa Del Toro Rojo, a personal chef, from Denni’s Catering whom prepared ice-cold margaritas, along with some traditional Mexican appetizers, greeted me. Denni’s Catering is THE premiere catering company, providing services to the residents and vacationers of the villas in Pedregal. They offer personal chef services for as few or as many people as you wish, and for every occasion, including weddings, corporate retreats, private parties and more. The cuisine is traditional Mexican fare with a European twist, as the owner of the company, Denis, hails from Marseilles, France.
The villa itself, Villa Del Toro Rojo, was bathed in balmy sunlight and had the feel of an outdoor lanai in Hawaii. There were so many windows that the sun would stream into the 6 bedroom, 6 bath home and give you the impression of a seamless meshing of the great outdoors with the villa itself. The 6,000 square foot property also boasted an outdoor bar, Jacuzzi and swimming pool with panoramic views stretching for miles. It was quite relaxing to sit on the chaise lounge by the pool and watch the boats setting sail from the Marina. The sunset needless to say, was of epic beauty.
Day two began with an in-home massage, courtesy of Suzanne Morel Spa, whose goal is to recreate the spa experience in the comfort and privacy of your own villa. Candles, high thread-count linens and relaxing music were all it took for me to drift into fantasyland. A tour of the surrounding villas in Pedregal, was nothing short of otherworldly. The exquisite properties ranged from somewhat modest, all the way up to mansions boasting over 20,000 square feet infused with 5-star hotel caliber and quality. Casa Cielo is the crown jewel of the villas in this prestigious community. It is immediately recognizable as it sits atop the landmark Pedregal sign. With 9 bedrooms all equipped with their own personal veranda and walk-in closet, you can’t help but feel like the king or queen of your own private castle, no matter which room you choose. With a fully equipped gym, professional game room, infinity pool and various Jacuzzis throughout, it is obvious that no detail has been overlooked in an effort to provide a luxury experience of the highest order.
Another gem is La Turquesa, a personal favorite, stylized in modern yet authentic Mexican décor with breathtaking ocean views, a mini-golf green, infinity pool, swim-up bar and over 10 bedrooms. This villa definitely had the makings of an idyllic location for a wedding or other special event.
In short the experience was the quintessential fusion of the entire splendor of a luxury hotel, but with a behind-the-scenes concierge orchestrating the execution of your every desire (in this case, Cabo San Lucas Vacations in collaboration with Cabo San Lucas Villas).
