Villa Updates

Casa Esperanza – Pedregal

Master designers have worked magic on the already-spectacular Casa Esperanza. Thanks to a major refurb, this luxury villa in Cabo San Lucas is now much more group-friendly with the completion of a new pool, fountain and outside decking area. The villa now also includes new fixtures from Guadalajara plus luxurious furniture and art from Bali. Of course, Casa Esperanza is still one the few villas in the exclusive Pedregal community to benefit from sunset views and an easy, five-minute walk to the beach.

Once two separate rentals, Villa 321 has been meticulously woven into a gigantic luxury compound. Now a huge seven-bedroom stay, the whole family can enjoy the extra space and privacy it offers. Furthermore, guests who book through Journey Mexico can get access to both Club 96, one of Cabo’s finest beach clubs, and Club Espiritu, one of Mexico’s best health and fitness centers, included in their stay.
