The Los Cabos villa is the 2,800-square-foot Casita 6 is as clean and efficient as it is grand. As a three-bedroom villa in Mexico, it affords all the luxury of a palatial spread but is right-sized for small families or romantic couples that might want to bring along a friend or two. It sleeps six in comfort and provides plenty of roaming spaces and lounging pods so that privacy is never a problem.
Start with the outdoors of it – the 1,600-square-foot pool deck that spreads around the half-moon infinity pool. Soak in Casita 6’s Jacuzzi above the Sea of Cortez and then step over for a cooling float. Relax and enjoy the company of friends on loungers overlooking the waters before taking lunch in the shade at a granite table that seats eight in al fresco elegance. Your butler serves fresh ceviche from today’s catch, all made to order by your private chef, pouring cooling glasses of newly prepared papaya, mango and watermelon juice. You’ll have your daiquiris later, you decide as warm nachos, only lightly salted, appear amid the myriad tasty treasures.
You consider having your dinner in the villa outdoors as well. These long, wine-influenced gatherings, that last into the night, are made even more alluring by the play of light and shadows from the outdoor kiva keeping you warm and comfortable within the swirling sea breezes. The sea is the focus and a meal taken against the endless blue views is the point of this sojourn. There is a dining area set up near the kitchen as an extension of the kitchen island, but it is perfect for breakfast, you think, with access to coffee and pastries all around and the chef on hand in the open stone-lined kitchen area to make impromptu bacon and eggs. There is a space for everything here, you ponder, and you are on vacation! The formal dining soirees can wait!
Your primary bedroom, one of three bedrooms in Casita 6, connects to a spacious bathroom with a deep, step-up bathtub set against a picture window that allows you to watch the sea while you soak. Other bedrooms have connecting bathrooms as well, but they offer two queen beds, while yours is a large king. A second bedroom also comes with a terrace lounging arrangement, and a third is perfect for kids who may be in remote learning classes and need the large computer screen and desk set-up in that bedroom.
When you are ready to come together again with family and friends, a large, casually formal living room area doubles as a media room, flanked by open walls of receded windows to keep the indoor/outdoor flow in motion. A second living room can be found outside the indoor living room on a terrace arrangement facing the sea, for gatherings that move and ramble from one captivating spot to another.
