Mexico / Los Cabos / San Jose Del Cabo
Clean, contemporary, cozy … Casita 42 contains all the must-haves for an indulgent, streamlined getaway to the glimmering beaches of Los Cabos.
The 2,800-square-foot villa that is Casita 42 is as clean and efficient as it is grand. As a three-bedroom manse 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.
Designers took a spare approach to Casita 42 so that means spaces are not cluttered with art objects and wall décor. Rather, the minimalistic flow means clean lines and symmetries in the carefully chosen furnishings and walls melt right into the stunning sea views rather than send attention to knick-knacks and paintings. Travertine floors add to the sparkle as earth tones meander from kitchen and living room to patio stonework and onto the vast ocean blue. Casita 42 is at one with its surroundings, a part of the Baja magic, an immersion in the true sensibilities of Mexico.
Start with the outdoors of it – the 1,600-square-foot pool deck that spreads around the half-moon infinity pool. Soak in a 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 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 more 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!
You retire to your bedroom at the end of a long day and relax on a cushiony, oversized bedroom chair to catch up on a few chapters of the novel you put down at the pool. Ahh, but there is more to this night than words on a page. You step out onto your private verandah and ignite the fire pit outside your bedroom. The chair facing the fire and the sea beyond is just what you need at this moment. The stars guide your thoughts as you step out of the life you know into something different, something unknown. All is well with the world.
Your master bedroom, one of three bedrooms in Casita 42, 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.
What’s to Love?
The sophisticated intimacy of Casita 42 becomes the object of your affection. There is nothing too garish, here, too out of place or too noisy for the senses. Design motifs are simple, unspoiled, functional and fresh – no clutter to weigh down the mood or darken the moment. As with a blank slate, Casita 42 becomes whatever you want to make it, a canvas for your thoughts, a fulcrum for your fantasies.
When you are hungry, a chef has your order ready and a butler will serve it, whether on your private terrace or your chaise by the pool.
Or you may choose to spend the day on the go and head to one of the many excellent restaurants in nearby San Jose del Cabo. The choices for what to do while you are in Los Cabos – from whale watching, to deep sea fishing, to sailing, to snorkeling to gallery hopping and shopping — are too plentiful for you to contemplate in one sitting. But you can love what’s right around you, too.
Take the villa golf cart to the One&Only Palmilla – about a two-minute drive away — for a golf game on the popular Palmer-designed golf course. Or enjoy a spa treatment with mystical bruja influences followed by an exquisite meal in a bistro café, all with your signing privileges at the resort.
The day is yours and yours alone – and you know it. Follow up those action sessions with an in-villa massage on your private terrace. One call to your dedicated concierge and consider it done.
