An Exclusive Look Inside Luxurious East Cape Homes and Resorts

Thursday, January 30, 2020

Just 20 years ago, falling in love with Baja was easy however, finding luxurious East Cape homes was not. Today, developers have taken great pains to maintain the unspoiled beauty of the region while paving roads, incorporating eco-conscious features, opening master-planned luxury resorts like Costa Palmas and adding recreational opportunities and modern conveniences.

Anyone seeking luxurious East Cape homes today will find plenty of options to feel pampered and catered to while still enjoying the natural landscape of ocean, private beaches, orchards, lagoons and rocky trails. Whether you’re looking for a private residence, a gated community or luxury resort living, East Cape Baja can live up to your lifestyle expectations. Just check out the features you can find among the varied real estate on the local market.

 

1. Marina slips

Interested in exploring nearby ports by boat or just heading out for a day of fishing? There are plenty of luxurious East Cape homes with their own docks or choose from 250 slips at Costa Palmas’ marina. Billing itself as “Baja’s most cosmopolitan marina,” the marina’s adjacent private residents at Costa Palmas range from two to four bedrooms and spread up to nearly 5,000 square feet.

 

2. Golf

Cabo has become a destination location for golf enthusiasts around the globe. With an ideal climate, top-notch fairways and unrivaled views of sand, sea and pristine land, you’re sure to find a favorite course nearby—perhaps adjacent to your property.

Golf communities in the East Cape are the things dreams are made of, with the option to practically step onto the green from your back door. At Costa Palmas, residents can test their skills at a world-class 18-hold championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., which is pictured below. There’s also a shorter six-hole loop, an al fresco snack and cocktail venue, lessons with pros and a 30,000-square-foot putting course.

 

3. Eco-friendly design

Sunshine is one of the East Cape’s most plentiful commodities so it makes sense that designers have incorporated solar power technology into many homes. Plus, with energy-efficient features like LED lighting, Energy Star® appliances and water-saving faucets and toilets, you’ll reduce your carbon footprint to protect the environment.

You’ll find a multitude of eco-conscious design elements indoors and outdoors; xeriscaping to conserve water, low-E, dual-pane windows to decrease heating and cooling functions and even self-sufficient wastewater treatment systems.

 

4. Outdoor living spaces

In the East Cape, designers are always looking for ways to blur the line between indoors and outdoors, with views of the ocean, mountains or both. You’ll find sliding glass doors for seamless transitions between exterior and interior spaces, wading and lap pools, outdoor showers, water slides, patios for sunbathing and outdoor dining, hot tubs, outdoor bars and barbecues, fire pits and even outdoor kitchens. Here’s an example:

Private gated entries and privacy walls help ensure you’ll be secluded and unbothered as you sleep in your terrace hammock or sip champagne at sunset.

 

5. Interior amenities

Many of the luxurious East Cape homes offer en suites with every bedroom, modern designs and finishes, interior fireplaces, chef’s kitchens and private entrances to suites for guests.

Luxurious East Cape homes are often Wi-Fi certified and futuristic in terms of smart devices, from deadbolts and thermostats to home support and on-demand ordering.

For those looking to customized their interior amenities, The Private Villas at Four Seasons can be completely custom built by your own design team or by Costa Palmas Home.

 

6. On-site fine dining

Homeowners have plenty of options when it comes to dining without leaving the property. Use your own live-in chef, hire a local cooking legend or, if you’re lucky enough to reside at Costa Palmas, indulge in any of the Four Seasons Resort’s five concept restaurants. The resort’s chefs are dedicated to using fresh, organic ingredients, many of which are sourced from its 18-acre organic farm.

 

7. Recreation

What’s on your lifestyle checklist? Snorkeling, shopping, hiking or karaoke with your kids? Just one of the many perks of living in the East Cape is access to unlimited fun.

Don’t own the right equipment to jet ski or go deep-sea fishing until the sun goes down? There are plenty of private clubs you can join to have access to the gear, the experts and the perfect locale.

Head out on a desert bike trail with your family or kayak to a private locale for a picnic. You’ll never run out of adventures, privacy or the gear you need to make everyone’s day one for the memory books.

 

8. Private beaches

Why share a beach when you can enjoy the privacy of your own stretch? There’s no chance of fighting for a chair among visiting tourists when you have your own sandy slice of heaven.

Beachfront properties rank high among luxurious East Cape homes but there’s no shortage among the real estate.

 

9. Spas

Many of the luxurious East Cape homes offer spa-like bathrooms with bidets and heated toilet seats, jacuzzi tubs and even private saunas.

Prefer to sip your margarita while indulging in a pedicure or facial? Or maybe you’re needing a deep-tissue massage from that early tennis match. Whatever treatment you’re in search of, you can do it all without leaving Costa Palmas thanks to the Four Seasons Resort Spa.

 

10. On-call staff

Part of the allure of living in luxurious East Cape Homes in not needing to cut your own grass, landscape your yard, maintain your pool or clean your space. Choose a private home with living quarters for staff or enjoy having all your whims attended to and every chore taken care of at a Four Seasons Private Residence at Costa Palmas.

From drivers and tour guides to maintenance crews and in-room massages, the luxury of living on the East Cape can make your dreams of a catered lifestyle a reality.

Before you start your search for luxurious East Cape homes, make a list of priorities. If you’re going to create the lifestyle of your dreams, why settle for less? Bring your boat, your favorite golf clubs, and your desire for adventure, and start a new adventure along Baja’s most elite coastline.
