There is a hidden castle in Los Cabos: A Sea of Cortez luxury get-away!
by Chris Sands
There is a hidden castle in Los Cabos. It’s located just a few minutes outside San Jose del Cabo, and showcases many of the features you would expect in such an exalted structure: heavy wooden gates, stone turrets, archways, and hand-crafted furnishings. It also has a few features you might not expect, like the Infinity pool, elevated Jacuzzi, and spectacular Sea of Cortez views. An artful architectural blend of Moorish castle, Mediterranean villa, and Spanish hacienda, Castillo Escondido is one of the most singularly impressive vacation rentals in all of Baja, an exclusive beachfront property where guests can live like visiting royalty.
At over 4,500 square feet and spread across four levels, Castillo Escondido offers expansive and luxurious accommodations for up to eight adults and two children. The castle’s design is one of its most remarkable features, with ocean views available from all four suites, as well as the gourmet kitchen. Outdoor areas receive plenty of shade courtesy of the Mission tile roofing and the palapa-topped lounge area, while sun seekers can frolic in the pool, relax on one of the chaise lounges, or take a barefoot stroll along the golden sand beach.
All the suites feature king-sized beds, as well as exquisite decor. The master suite is a study in sensuous pleasures, with a fireplace, private terrace, sybaritic shower area, and a layout so perfectly conceived that guests can occasionally see whales breaching just offshore while still in bed. All the suites have a theme, and the Zen, Safari, and Tropical Suites each have their own flawlessly appointed theme-appropriate decor, as well as their own spectacular ocean views. Each of the suites is situated so as to ensure maximum privacy, and is outfitted with luxurious linens and robes. Private terraces, pampering bath fixtures, and iPod docks are also available in all suites.
From marble columns to travertine floors, everything at Castillo Escondido is first-class. The lavish amenities at this unique East Cape property include a gourmet kitchen with marble countertops, two refrigerators, wine storage, and a Viking stove. The greatroom features an entertainment center anchored by an enormous plasma screen television, and other common areas include the pergola-shaded dining area, the palapa-topped lounge, and a fire-pit set just off the beach, with comfortable booth seating from which to enjoy the tropical nighttime sky, the glimmer of far off stars, and meditative whisper of gently lapping waves.
Internet access and air-conditioning are provided, as is daily maid service, with concierge services available from onsite property managers Mike Walker and Judy Gibson, who are happy to arrange everything from activities to grocery delivery. The castle is located right on the beach at La Laguna, where golf and other activities, from fishing and horseback riding to sailing and surfing, are mere minutes away.
