Reserva at La Montaña

Location: Situated on a bluff within the Villas del Mar, Palmilla, development in Los Cabos. About 15 miles from the SJD airport.
About: One of the original developments in Los Cabos, the property that is now Villas del Mar was first established in in 1956, when Don Abelardo Rodriguez, son of the Mexican president, built an under-the-radar, 15-room resort with a private airstrip just off the beach. The property quietly hosted Hollywood elite, like Lucille Ball and John Wayne. In the 1970s, Orange County–based developer Don Koll fell in love with Cabo and created a series of subcommunities around the hotel. In 1995, Houston-based developer Ron Hatfield arrived and took things to a new level, creating the ultra-luxury communities of Villas del Mar and Espiritu. Now, Villas del Mar is offering one of its final communities, Reserva at La Montaña, with just 16 villas overlooking the Sea of Cortez. Not only is this one of the last opportunities to own at Villas del Mar, it’s the first time the community has ever constructed homes in a contemporary Baja style.
Timeline: Sales launched earlier this year. Homes are built and completed upon purchase.
Pricing: From $3.265M
