Cabo Del Sol is a gated 1,800-acre master-planned resort community located approximately five miles from downtown Cabo San Lucas or a 15-minute drive to San Jose del Cabo. Established in 1992, Cabo Del Sol has become a highly sought-after mix of single-family homes, building lots, hotels and condominiums. Homeowners at Cabo Del Sol enjoy access to the 18-hole Tom Weiskopf designed Desert Course as well as the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature designed Ocean Course, which was voted “The Best Los Cabos Golf Course for Experienced Players” by Golf Digest in January 2016.
There are many well-established neighborhoods within Cabo Del Sol development including Las Brisas, Las Colinas, Las Posadas, La Rivera, El Peñon, Buena Vista, Vista Azul, Palmaritos, and Puerta Del Sol. Most homes tend to be in keeping with Mexican Hacienda style architecture, many of which feature entry courtyards, separate casitas, private pools and sweeping ocean and/or fairway views. Within the community you will also find Sheraton Hacienda del Mar Hotel, Fiesta Americana Grand Los Cabos, a pro shop, and a Club House with a fine dining restaurant. The Cabo Del Sol website explains, “The restaurant at Cabo del Sol is a vibrant gathering place for locals, golfers, and guests who want to enjoy a relaxed meal with friends and loved ones overlooking the spectacular Pacific coastline.” Don’t miss their famous Sunday brunch, which comes highly recommended by many locals!
The Puerta Del Sol neighborhood has its own set of amenities serving the 69 luxury condominiums and 14 villas within, including three infinity pools, a state of the art fitness center, spa, meeting space, and underground parking. Condos currently on the market at Puerta Del Sol start in the high $400’s up to $1.6 million, whereas single-family homes in Cabo Del Sol currently range from the high $800’s up to $3 million.
I caught up with my friend Jolette who purchased one of the first homes in the development with her husband Bob back in 1999 and has been enjoying fall and winter here ever since. When asked what she likes most about living in Cabo Del Sol, she explained, “Right now, the security in Cabo del Sol is very important and we have always felt safe here. The view is beautiful and watching the whales from the house. I especially like going for walks in the morning. I never hesitate to go out alone…I love to listen to the birds and look for all the ones I have seen over the years.”
Owners in Cabo Del Sol can walk or drive to the private beach access located next to the Sheraton Hacienda Del Mar, which is an easy 10-minute walk away from the furthest home in the development. The beach is much quieter than other public beaches along the Sea of Cortez, with only a few vendors allowed. “The best part is the quiet neighborhood. I like the sound of the waves at certain times of the year as it reaches all the way to my house. Our family all loves to come for a visit to swim in the pool and enjoy the beach,” explains Jolette.
So, if you are in the market for a home in a peaceful gated community with stunning natural beauty and lots of Mexican charm, Cabo Del Sol may be just the place for you. Contact a real estate professional and start the search for your Cabo DREAM HOME today!
