We stayed at Villa Paloma Blanca last year and enjoyed it so much that we had to come again. We've rented homes before, but none can beat VPB. Maxine and Peter are amazing hosts and made sure the home was ready for us. The kitchen is stocked with every appliance, basic staples and an endless roll of Saran Wrap to keep foods fresh!! The inside is as inviting as the outside. The outdoor shower in the master bedroom is perfection, enjoyed the view!
The pool is heated so we had early morning and afternoon swim sessions, the ease of having your private pool is unmatched. We used the BBQ often and again, everything is there when needed to BBQ. The views are perfection, picture postcards ever sunrise and during the day. We had fireworks one night & a full moon - absolutely stunning.
Book a stay at Villa Paloma Blanca...you'll love the place!!!
This amazing house will take your breath away! Waking up every morning to panoramic views of the sea of cortez, and sleeping peacefully in big comfy beds hearing the sound of waves crashing. Everything was so well cared for. Very spacious. Hanging out in the pool was definitely one of our favorite things to do. Sitting on top of a hill we felt so safe, and this oasis provided such a quiet and relaxing place to be. Our host were especially helpful and available in answering questions, providing directions, arranging transportation, and even volunteering to take us to the airport when we left. We will definitely stay here again next time we visit!
5 Years ago we stayed at Villa Paloma Blanca and had such a wonderful trip we decided to do it again. Maxine and Peter are always there to help you with everything from renting their home, to more affordable car rental and of course anything you may need during your stay. Even when they're not on site Maxine will answer any questions you may have. I don't believe we will ever find a more perfect house with a view of the ocean (including morning views of whales and fishing boats), beautifully kept pool and spa and plenty of seating whether you want to be in the sun or in the shade. There's a gas grill and patio seating to eat al fresco while watching the waves crash on the beach. You won't regret staying at this perfectly located house.
The Villa was everything we had hoped for.
You are warmly greeted by the owners who will give you the grand tour of their property.
A stunning property on the hill with an amazing view of the ocean and the coast. First word out of my mouth WOW.
Nice open floor plans with a nicely heated pool, amazing sunrises and even some whale watching. There are even binoculars to take a closer look. There are also plenty of books to choose from and some board games.
The kitchen is well stocked with all kinds of appliances and a great outdoor grill to whip up some delicious meals.
I suggest you do get a rental car for convenience of shopping but the owners have even thought of that and are renting out a car to a really great price.... next time, and there will be a next time, i'll be renting their car without all the hassle of a car rental place.
All i can say is thank you for a beautiful holiday.
My family of 7 visited the Villa right after Thanksgiving and knew from just the initial communication with the owners this was a special place - it DID NOT disappoint. Maxine the owner was timely in all email responses, extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We needed extra amenities to accommodate a 10-month-old and she was ON IT. We inquired about car rental, private chefs, poolside massage - anything I threw at her, she responded quickly, offering to help plan.
I inadvertently gave the owners the wrong flight details and upon arriving earlier than expected, THEY apologized to US for not having the FRESH GUACOMOLE & CHIPS out for us to enjoy (the welcome beer was already cold in the fridge - INCREDIBLE!). One afternoon the owner Peter went out fishing, caught fresh Tuna, and offered/brought us some. BEST DAMN TUNA E-V-E-R - GREAT OWNERS,
The personal touches and beautiful decor truly make this feel like a home away from home. They have thought of EVERYTHING, from the surround sound stereo, cable satellite TV, kitchen equipment galore, beach supplies, games, washer/dryer - you don't need a thing. The rooms are lovely and spacious and the beds are SO comfortable. All 3 rooms have their own bathroom (EXCELLENT for large groups), air conditioning and fans, and we loved that the Villa was 1 level so we could all spend time together instead of being spread out on various floors. The studio room (a walk through the main courtyard or around the pool) is fantastic for those needing a bit more privacy or quiet - perfect for myself and 3-year-old daughter - and fully equipped with a great view, fridge, coffee pot, etc.
The photos are a wonderful representation of the beauty of the Villa, but you cannot fully appreciate the view until you step through the front door and look out to your backyard with an 180-degree view of the Sea of Cortez and mountains through the living room pocket doors - it's magical. The pool area/patio is spacious and the pool a perfect size (and temp!). While we didn't use the "hot" tub, it made for an excellent "kiddie pool!" Did I mention that vieww! The outdoor shower was great, as well.
Location cannot be beaten - close to everything; airport, Art District of San Jose Del Cabo for shopping/enjoying local food (the locals put on wonderful cultural shows in the square with tables set up to shop several nights), grocery shopping, beaches, and Cabo San Lucas is very close by car (20 minutes). Zipper's restaurant down the hill from the Villa on the beach is a MUST - great food, inexpensive, live music - FUN!
If there is any hesitation at ALL in booking Villa Paloma Blanca, DO IT - YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT. From the day you get back to your normal, mundane life, you will take comfort and rejoice in having the indelible memories of this magical place (and probably start planning your subsequent visits like we are!) THANK YOU MAXINE AND PETER FOR A VACATION DREAM COME TRUE!
