7 Outdoor Features to Look for in a Luxury Beach Home in East Cape

Searching for a luxury beach home in the East Cape of the Mexican state of Baja California Sur? This is only challenging in the sense that you’ll need to choose from among the cream of the crop.

With easy access from Los Cabos International Airport, the East Cape has become a destination for celebrities and wealthy global travelers, and those seeking to purchase a permanent residence. The East Cape has become an oasis for a lifestyle marked by adventure, pampering, and ease.

Whether you’re considering a move to Los Cabos or are looking for a second (or third) luxury beach home in East Cape, you’ll need to really hone in on what separates the great properties from those that are exceptional. To get you started, here are seven outdoor features offered at some of the best private residences in the region.

  • Beach access

    Because many of the beaches around Los Cabos aren’t swimmable due to strong currents, water lovers may want to search for real estate with private beach access.
    For some, that may mean purchasing an individual waterfront property, while others may prefer the privacy, protection, and amenities of a private residence in a beachfront development.

  • Vessel slips, field, and maintenance

    Own your own yacht or sailboat? A handful of properties in the East Cape offer private slips to dock your vessel.
    At Costa Palmas Resort, marina-side residences allow both short and long-term vacationers to exit their craft just steps from their home. With stunning views of the Sea of Cortez, the full-service marina offers slip ownership for sailboats and yachts up to 250 feet long.

    Costa Palmas’ Marina Village provides conveniences you’d come to expect from a luxury port of call. With access to field, maintenance services, a drystack system, tailored provisioning, power, water, ice, and wifi.

  • Private infinity pools and hot tubs

    With a near-perfect climate year-round in the East Cape, swimming pools can provide not only refreshment and exercise but also a centerpiece for socialization and relaxation. But sharing a pool with strangers won’t provide the privacy or spontaneity that your own property’s amenities will.

    True luxury properties in the East Cape will come not only with their own infinity pool overlooking the beach but also a hot tub. Don’t settle on sharing a community pool.

  • Outdoor living space

    So much of your time in the East Cape will be spent outside, and entertaining is no exception. Look for a luxury beach home that offers expanded indoor-outdoor living spaces, including an outdoor kitchen, BBQ, seating areas, an outdoor shower, and a fireplace.

    If you plan to invite friends and family, a large outdoor dining area can ensure al fresco dining like no other, with ocean breezes, starry nights, and comfortable seating to keep the conversation flowing late into the night.

  • Maintained landscape

    Unless you’re a true DIYer, you’ll want to hire someone to maintain your landscape at your luxury beach home. But consider that many high-end properties in the East Cape will have a dedicated team to take care of all your needs so you can focus on exploring, entertaining, adventure-seeking, or just relaxing.

    This is of particular advantage to frequent travelers or those who only plan to visit the East Cape seasonally. With luxury resort living, scheduled landscaping maintenance means you’ll be free to come and go as you please without worrying that your property is in disarray or that you’ll have to find a replacement team from halfway across the globe at the last minute.

  • Yacht captain’s quarters

    Bringing your own yacht or sailboat often means traveling with your own crew. But where do they live, eat, and sleep during extensive stays?

    In the East Cape, few private homes or resort residences can provide crew accommodations just steps from your private dock. But at Costa Palmas, investing in a villa or home with a private dock can also come with captain’s quarters right in the backyard.

  • Accessibility to resort or other local amenities

    Of all the outdoor features you’ll want to look for in a luxury beach home in East Cape, access to amenities is at the top of the list for many.

    You’ll need to set your own priorities to determine which amenities are essential to maintain your lifestyle expectations.

    Do you want access to world-class golf, high-end clothing boutiques, and luxury spas Are you planning to learn to scuba dive, deep-sea fish, or rely on experienced guides to take you on excursions around the region? And what about access to exceptional dining, private chefs, and wine and tequila sommeliers?

    Will you need access to transportation—either in terms of an airport or private driver—for frequent international trips?

    If your family includes children or teens, will you need lessons from seasoned experts in land and water sports, local culture, and youth activities, or entertainment and experiences catering to multi-generational excursions?

    With outdoor living, adventure, leisure activities, and socializing playing such major roles in your East Cape lifestyle, finding your own slice of heaven means considering more than what’s inside your investment’s exterior walls.

    Armed with a list of must-haves for your perfect luxury beach home on the southeastern side of the Baja Peninsula, you should have no trouble ticking all your boxes with the exceptional high-end selections in the East Cape’s current real estate market.

    Thanks to inventory that includes sprawling waterfront mansions, marina-side residences, and resort-style villas with private beaches, selecting your perfect luxury beach house in the East Cape region is only limited by your imagination.
