Very Good

“Exceeded EVERY Expectation!”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2015

Our family can't begin to express our delight with Castillo Escondito! The villa and grounds are much more stunning than the pictures. We visited with our two sons and daughter in law for 8 days. The property was immaculate and the very best of care is given with each little detail of your needs by Mike and Judy. They even are so adept at hospitality, they anticipated our needs! From dinners prepared by Hector and staff, to fishing and in town venues, each recommendation and reservation is made with pleasing you as a guest! I would whole-heartedly recommend the Villa and the staff. This is the PERFECT retreat for anyone wanting a personal relaxing and beautiful Cabo experience! A must experience for your family.

“Staying at this villa is truly a slice of heaven!”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2014

One word describes Castillo Escondido and that is "magical". From the moment I walked onto the property I felt a sense of calmness and serenity that takes you far away where you lose all sense of time. The view of the infinity pool and the Sea of Cortez is absolutely breathtaking. At night the sound of the waves in my suite lulled me to sleep. This was a great location for a reunion with old and new friends. At night we dined 'Al Fresco' and later sat around a roaring fire pit listening to the waves and enjoying the privacy and beauty of San Jose Del Cabo. Michael and Judy were great in assisting in whatever we needed during our stay at this beautiful villa. I would definitely return to this slice of heaven to share this experience with my family.

“Coming Back for more!”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2010

When we saw this place online we knew this was the place we wanted to go... a family of 4 couples looking for just the perfect place: time as couples and time together as a family. Well, this place did not disappoint! Each room has it's own entrance so each room is very private. You have to walk outside to get to each room (all with breath-taking ocean views and their own deck). The huge great-room and kitchen overlook the pool and ocean with a speaker system piping out to the entire property. Mike and Judy made the whole process easy and, upon arrival, they made sure it was "home" for us. Every detail has been so beautifully thought through... robes in each of the rooms, fresh towels in your room and at the pool each day, beach umbrellas, internet, free phone calls, and anything you would need. They were the perfect balance of making sure we were well taken care of and at the same time making sure we felt like we were the only ones on the property. The views cannot be put into words. We saw dolphins, whales, stingrays and beautiful sunsets. It was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had and we have already booked our time for next year! We are counting down the days already.

“Paradise on the Beach”

Reviewed 25 Mar 2010

Paradise best describes our stay and experience at Castillo Escondido. The grounds are stunning and provide the privacy and all the amenities our family needed. We spent most of our time on the beach or lounging around the pool and spa. The kids enjoyed their very own wave runners, kayaks and ATV's. The staff was very helpful with tips to make our excursions more memorable. Although it's located on a very private beach, it was an easy trip into town to get supplies. We barely left the place except to dine out and explore the trendy art scene in San Jose on Thursday night. Really, who needs Cabo? I give it a two thumbs up!! We'll be back.

Response from the owner Patti- Thank you so much for your review. You know you are ALWAYS welcome here.

“Whale watching from the perfect seaside villa”

Reviewed 25 Mar 2010

It seemed like only about 10 minutes drive from the center of San Jose del Cabo. But as our hosts drove us down the hill into the tiny seaside enclave of La Laguna it was like entering another world. It's a hideaway, "Rich and Famous" style. But it didn't matter that we are actually neither because we decided to share the Castillo with old friends and it turned out to be the consummate bargain on a reunion get-a-way. When you arrive behind the gates, you pass a splashing fountain and this sunny, tranquil vibe starts to set in. Then you walk through the parapet entry, onto the upper deck, and the view that meets your eyes is positively jaw-dropping. In the foreground, the infinity pool and spa, beyond it to the right a cozy sunken fire pit, off to the left, a shady retreat under a thatch-roofed pallapa. But then, commanding your whole center field of vision, stretching as far as you can see, is the open Pacific Ocean. It was whale migration time when we were there. That lasts most of the winter and you're right at the very tip of the Baja peninsula. There are dozens of different kinds of whales and they come down to the Sea of Cortez to have their young and then take them back to Alaska, so they have to come right by here. We saw whales off and on all day. The guest rooms are arranged like separate bungalows, each with its own entry and deck area, so you can easily slip away with a book and have your solitude. The bathrooms are spectacular--all tile and marble with large, spaces. You'll just have to see them and judge for yourself! Then there's the equally huge great-room and kitchen at one end with views of the whole property. The Castillo is only a couple years old, so everything is new and spotless and the owner / hosts--a fun couple from California--are absolutely great. There is nothing bad to say about this place. I wish I could live there. We WILL be back!

Response from the owner Jim You Rock! Please come back soon.

I will never travel any other way after this experiance...this place is a vacationer dream come true!

“Quiet , Relaxing and fun for all”

Reviewed 14 Mar 2010

We stayed for a week last march with 3 adults and 5 teenagers! We had a blast! we played volleyball out front on the beach, walked to a nice casual dinning spot for some meals, rented a ping pong table to entertain the kids and had a great time. Our hosts Mike and Judy were there to make everything go smoothly from filling our fridge with groceries to helping drive us around. We would do this trip in an instant. Ideal for 2 families or 4 couples! Lots of room

“Perfect Bachelorette Party!”

Reviewed 13 Mar 2010

We rented this house for a bachelorette party and we had an amazing time. The house is awesome! All the rooms are very similar; large, well appointed with a master bath & view. The finishings are highend. The sound system was great and we had our ipod playing out by the pool area. We spent most of the time outside lounging. The owners are so wonderful (they live on the property behind the house in a casita). They are friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Having them on the property made us feel safe. We ran out of food and they went to go to the store for us (we did not have a rental car). They also arranged different activities for us (massages at the house, a cook to make meals). To reach the kitchen/family room you have to leave your bedroom and walk on a the house is better for friends or couples than families with young children. Also the pool/outside area has many stairs and would not be good for young chidren. The house is a outside of town, so you are not able to walk to town. We loved being somewhat isolated like this. It was a heavenly retreat! We were on a bachelorette party and spent the entire 4 days at the house (with the exception of one night in cabo for dinner/dancing). Oh, you can't swim in the ocean due to riptides. But, the pool is great, it might be saltwater, but your skin felt so soft after swimming.
