Casa Ocho is an ultra deluxe beachfront estate, enviably positioned in prestigious Palmilla Sur, at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula. Standing proudly within a private gated community, the golden sands of Palmilla are on your doorstep – one of the most secluded and pristine beaches in the baja.
Initially built to accommodate a large family, the 11-bedroom property went on to become a rental to the elite, operating like a high-end and intimate boutique hotel. Since then, the venue has hosted exclusive events, retreats and gatherings, housing A-list celebrities, Corporate Retreats of Fortune 500 companies and prominent groups from all ends of the earth. And now, it’s on the market for $15,750,000, with Cabo Platinum handling the sale.
The striking structure was designed by Mexico-based architect Alan Machado and features eye-catching floor-to-ceiling glass windows and pocket doors throughout, not to mention panoramic Sea of Cortez views from virtually every room.
“It combines elements that are subtle yet absolutely astonishing, creating the perfect amalgamation of art, design, and comfortable living,” says Danette Reid of Cabo Platinum.
At the same time, it’s only a short journey from top-end shopping at downtown San Jose, Luxury Avenue, and Puerto Paraiso Mall. A host of 5-star resorts and spas are also in the vicinity, including Grand Velas, The Cape, One&Only, and Waldorf Astoria. Moreover, Mexico’s top four golf courses are within easy reach: Diamante, Cabo del Sol, Querencia, and Chileno Bay.
Casa Ocho: stylish and opulent
Spread over five floors with modern-design throughout, the high-ceilinged 30,000 square foot beauty boasts an outstanding list of amenities and facilities ranging from a gourmet kitchen, a wet bar, a 16-person dining table, and dual-master bedrooms. Each bedroom in the villa provides natural air-flow for comfortable living, cooling a/c, state-of-the-art electric blinds, and category five high-speed wifi.
And that’s just inside. Head out to the lush landscaped gardens and you’ll be wowed by an ocean-facing infinity pool, direct beach access, and an al-fresco dining area for more than 30 people. There’s also a waterfall feature in the entrance, a bbq zone, and an outside kitchen. And let’s not forget the fire pit and Jacuzzi. Indeed, no detail has been forgotten in this Cabo beachfront villa.
Back indoors, you’ll notice teak and cedar finishes throughout and a host of living spaces, from family and games rooms to a comfortable den. The capacious home also comes complete with 14 bathrooms, terraces leading out from the bedrooms that continue to feature those glorious ocean vistas, plus spacious walk-in closets and rain showers to luxuriate under.
The community: centrally located, peaceful, and private
Ideally positioned in the San Jose del Cabo corridor, Casa Ocho is across the highway from an award-winning hospital and a mere 20-minutes from San Jose del Cabo international airport. What’s more, the laid-back colonial gem of San Jose del Cabo is a stone’s throw away – charming and characterful, be sure to check out the main square, the premier marina, and the art district.
The luxurious residence is also just a short drive from Cabo San Lucas and The Arch – aka “Land’s End”, where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific. Meanwhile, an array of fine sandy beaches are nearby, including Chileno, Cannery, Playa Santa María, and El Medano – should you wish to try somewhere other than Palmilla. And in terms of restaurants, there’s no shortage of quality options: Acre, Comal, Cocina De Autor, and farm-to-table eating at Flora Farms, to name just a few.
Known as the “aquarium of the world”, the region is a top spot for diving and snorkeling. But if you prefer to stay on land, there are adventures to be had hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking through the Sierra de la Laguna mountains.
