Oceanfront Luxury Cabo Penthouse at Villa del Arco
Oceanfront Luxury Cabo Penthouse at Villa del Arco
Rent Christmas or New Year's week, or both, as we own this fifth floor penthouse for both holiday weeks. As elite members at the Villa del Arco resort, we can use points for the best rooms during other weeks during the year -- just ask. Family friendly two bedroom luxury oceanfront penthouse at the TripAdvisor four and a half star Villa del Arco resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Our fixed weeks in Suite 1501 offer 1,577 sf of living space and a wraparound 865 sf terrace with stunning views of Medano Beach, the Sea of Cortez and the resort pool. The terrace has a large jacuzzi. The master suite, dining room, kitchen and second bedroom have doors opening to the veranda. The master has a king sized bed and jacuzzi. The second bedroom and bath suite contains two queen-sized beds. The living room has a pull down queen sized Murphy bed. We also own two floating weeks each year in a 2 bedroom ocean view suite, and are renting Week 10 in 2015. Medano Beach is the only safe and accessible beach in the area, as families struggle often with the rough surf on the Pacific side. The Villa Group Resort is meticulously well groomed and maintained. Guests can enjoy the restaurants on all three properties, including La Estancia and Villa del Palmar. A trolley bus runs every 5 - 10 minutes between hotels. The Palmita Market offers beer, wine and basic grocery items. A Costco is also five minutes away and makes it easy to prepare meals in the fully equipped kitchen at our unit. A gas grill is located on veranda for steak and burgers.
Glass bottomed boats and wave runners pull right onto the beach, you can get almost anywhere for fun when you walk out onto the beach. Parasail from the beach. Take a quick ride to Lover's Beach at Land's End. Take a 20 minute walk, water taxi or $7 cab into town for dinner. Check out our video page where we have some of the "best of Cabo" on video. Cabo Adventures provides a marvelous array of excursions. The Dolphin Swim is a newer attraction and proved worth the dollars. We love taking the sedate sunset sailing cruise with the Tropicat. The Buccaneer can be fun for younger kids and pre-teens though it can be rowdy and less relaxed. Our favorite adventure in late December is whale watching with Cabo Adventures. Every year we experience unexpected nature encounters. Two years ago, a pod of dolphins -- probably 20 in all -- exploded from the water in front of us and performed an acrobatic exhibition for about 20 minutes. Last year, we followed two humpback whales wresting over the affections of an annoyed female. One year, we saw manta rays flying out of the water in a big crowd on the Pacific Side. Don't miss why Jacques Cousteau called the Sea of Cortez the World's Aquarium.
Dining is terrific. We eat breakfast every morning on property at El Patron where seaside tables and light breezes make breakfast an unparallelled experience -- it just never gets old. Dinner there has also become one of our favorites since the new chef was hired last year. During our 2014 trip, the restaurant's fish entries made this our favorite place to eat in Cabo. We ventured only to the Hacienda resort restaurant, between Villa del Arco and the marina, which still ranks as one of our favorite dining experiences in Cabo although first timers should not miss Mi Casa.
Count us as satisfied time share owners. Our daughter informed us her senior year in high school that she was going on a senior trip to Cabo. We said: "Not without us." We've returned every year since that time and to the same resort. We have traveled to luxury destinations in North America, Hawaii, Central America and Europe and rank this resort as the best in terms of location, access to activities, and ability to sneak our towels down to the line of chaise lounges along the deck overlooking Medano Beach and relax reading books for the whole week. We are elite residence members and have sufficient points and weeks that we can find a room for you at one of the club's five resorts, including one receiving rave reviews in Loreto. Just send us a note and we can respond quickly.TripAdvisor property ID 3114201...Read more

Additional Location Information
The Villa del Arco resort is located just northeast of downtown Cabo San Lucas which is about a 20 minute walk on Medana Beach. Our fifth floor suite is separated by only a seawall from the Sea of Cortez, the "safe" swimming beach in the area. The hotel and its two sister properties sit adjacent to a large arroyo and is very quiet, except for the weekly performance of the Mariachi band at the Villa del Palmar. We always use transportation services provided by the resort to ferry us to and from the Los Cabos airport. The airport has been modernized in the past three or four years and is easy to navigate. The resort is a five to ten minute cab ride from all attractions and restaurants in Cabo San Lucas and costs $7 USD.
