This time of year, mornings start with beautiful sunrises and views of local fishing boats heading out for the catch of the day. Also, whales can frequently be seen from your terrace breaching as they feed and raise their young. Your daylight ends with spectacular Pacific Ocean sunsets, just in time to hit the fun and festive nightlife 10 minutes away in downtown Cabo.

"My family really, really, really enjoyed your Cabo Montecristo Villa. Thanks very much. It was far better than we ever expected. My parents golfed twice on the beach course. My sister and wife loved the resort facilities. And I sat by the pool relaxing and enjoying the view almost every day. Look forward to doing it again sometime. Regards, Patrick."

Jerry and Judy Parmenter purchased this villa in 2004

Why Jerry and Judy Parmenter chose Paraiso Escondido

Visting Cabo since mid-70's to enjoy beautiful weather, whale watching, sailing, snorkeling, sunset cruises, fishing, hiking, golfing and entertainment. Wanted both the convenience and amenities of a 5-star Resort with quiet retreat while enjoying a panoramic view of the ocean, relax in our own private infinity pool and villa with friends and family once retired. Our Montecristo villa at Pueblo Bonito Resort gives us all these and more. Guests have free use of three other Pueblo Bonito sister resort facilities (Pacifica, Rose, Los Cabos) in Cabo and 25% discount at Quivira Resort Golf Course all with charging privileges directly to our Villa.

What makes this villa unique

In 2004 only two Montecristo Estates top row villas were being built nestled into the mountainous ridge high above the main Pueblo Bonito Sunset Resort. We were lucky to have the 'pick-of-the-litter' and chose Villa #11--the most private villa on the end of top row, at ABSOLUTELY the highest point in the Estates/Resort including a KILLER panoramic view of the Sea of Cortez, Pacific Ocean & entire Resort. Downtown Cabo is 10-mins by car. Free Resort shuttles available within Resort and to downtown Cabo. Villa includes daily maid & personal concierge services, 24/7 Medical services & Daily kid activities.

Our goal: Answer questions & provide whatever assistance to our guests to make their stay a pleasant & memorable experience. Provide a 3-page Guest Information Sheet: Resort information; Transportation between San Jose del Cabo (SJD) airport and Resort (unless you rent a car); Concierge Services telephone number and email address; Where to buy groceries/beverages w/directions; Golf courses & making advanced reservations on-line; Favorite restaurants, day trips and other activities. We hope we have met these needs with our past guests. We invite you to review our Guest Comments. Thank you for considering our Villa for your future stay in Cabo.

Even better than advertised.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property in a great location with an owner who is easy to work with. Our first stay on the Pacific side of Cabo and will definitely go back. Even though we arrived on Christmas day our refrigerator was stocked with the food and drinks we had ordered in advance and our concierge was waiting to make sure everything went smooth at check in. We were able to see more than two dozen whales from the deck during our stay - most of them right by the shore in front of the property. We visited most of the other PB properties during our stay, but hated to leave the view from the pool so ended up cooking in several nights. Would recommend this property and specifically this owner without hesitation.

Stunning views and comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our Christmas holiday at Montecristo Villas. Our concierge Adrian Chavez was amazing. He was always there to help us with anything we needed. The main pool was very crowded so we had to sit at another pool within Sunset but it was very quiet. We enjoyed the Market with the many choices for food as well as the many other restaurants on the property. Now that we know how things work here; shuttle to the beach has to be reserved a day ahead, arrive 5 minutes before the shuttle pick up time (or the give your seat to someone else), and dinner reservations made in advance, we will definitely be back. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so pleasant.

Owner's Response: Glad you folks enjoyed your stay at our Villa#11 and the Resort. And thanks for your review comments, especially the info regarding making reservations one day in advance for the Resort's free shuttle to downtown Cabo. We contacted Montecristo Concierge and evidently this is a new requirement due to the high demand during peak holiday seasons. We will add a note to our Guest Information Sheet for future guests.

This villa & property over all is amazing, 5 star luxury all the way. We had a great time & didn't want to leave. There were 9 of us, the villa was very comfortable for all of us. The pull out couch that my teenage son slept on for the week needs a new mattress & the fan in the downstairs king bedroom didn't work. But everything else was awesome!! Really loved the pool. The views were amazing as the photos show. Being that high up made it difficult to get down to the rest of the property below but, the staff make every effort to not keep people waiting. The shuttle service is convenient & it seems they are always upgrading & improving the property. Thank you, to the Parmenters. Highly recommend!!

Owner's Response: We're glad you had a great stay at our villa. Thank you for not only making a guest comment but also for letting us know about the two issues you mentioned. Apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We have contacted Montecristo Villa maintenance folks to make sure they fix these issues promptly. We will be staying there ourselves Jan 5-14 so will make sure these two items have been addressed and will do a thorough inspection of our villa for any other maintenance issues needing attention.

Family Holiday at Monte Cristo Estates

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults and 3 little ones, ages 4,5, and 6, had a wonderful stay at the villa in Monte Cristo Estates this holiday season. The villa was high up which afforded outstanding views of the ocean and the surroundings. There was plenty of space for all of us - three large bedrooms, a living room with dining area and full kitchen, and a family room downstairs. The furnishings were fresh and comfortable. The hot tub and pool, all private, gaves us all hours of fun right there. We also had full use of Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach resort below us, so the little kids had plenty of varied entertainment. We are grateful to the owners for making this outstanding experience available to us.

Unforgettable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

January 2013

We recently visited Cabo for the first time and decided to stay at Montecristo. While the pictures were amazing they don't do the place justice. The moment we walked through the front door was when we knew we walked into paradise. You are greeted with a soothing fountain and then swept away with a view that instantly takes your breath away.

It is the only place we have ever stayed where you can see the sunrise and sunset from your bedroom while looking at the blue Pacific Ocean! Our entire stay was complete relaxation from the personal infinity pool to the hot tub. The amenities are top notch and service from the resort made this the total package especially for our whole family.

There is no question we will be back.
