COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT

by Dane Posey

The feeling of being part of a club is nice and we had an idea of how impactful it would be, but it is very much taking on a life of it’s own.

The Club at Maravilla

F

ew Los Cabos communities currently under development have been as eagerly anticipated as Twin Dolphin along the coast of Playa Las Viudas and Santa Maria Bay. Named as a tribute the iconic hotel that proudly stood from 1977 to 2006 Twin Dolphin, developed by Ohana Real Estate Investors, encompasses 1400 acres that will feature the Montage Los Cabos Resort along with 52 Montage Residences, the exclusive residential community of Maravilla, an 18-hole Fred Couples Signature golf course, retail shopping and restaurants. The residents and guests at Montage Los Cabos Resort are treated to a slew of amenities including a 20,000 square foot pool, destination spa, tennis courts, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and walk-in access to Santa Maria Bay known for its clear blue waters and vibrant sea life perfect for snorkeling, swimming, and exploring.

Residents of Cabo were first treated to a preview of the developer’s commitment to maintain the integrity and natural beauty of our area when they saved and replanted over 40,000 plants along their stretch of HWY 1. By resurfacing the public parking access and creating a handicap accessible path to the beach they quite literally paved the way for Playa Santa Maria to become one of only a few Blue Flag Certified Beaches in Los Cabos. I spoke to a homeowner within Maravilla, the private residential enclave on the shores of Las Viudas Beach, to learn the good, the bad, and the ugly. “This may be a short interview because I can tell you, there is only good. No bad and definitely no ugly. Everything is amazing.


We love Cabo and have been coming for years but we were never planning on purchasing a vacation home. We first visited Maravilla in January 2016 for an extended weekend with friends but when we got back home we started thinking, really thinking. We scheduled another trip down and bought!” When asked if there was any type of “A-ha Moment” since making the purchase he said, “We have been very happy with our choice and I think what really solidified our decision was a trip we made over Memorial Day last year. We visit Cabo once a month and for every major holiday. During this particular trip Maravilla had arranged an “Iron Chef” type ceviche competition that was designed for adults. Of course before long our children were participating with kids from other families and they were all having fun, laughing, learning, and to this day my kids still talk about it. We knew from day one that this was a great place to be but that moment really made it solid.” I asked him about his families “vacation style:” “We are very low maintenance. When it is time to vacation than often it is time for rest and relaxation. Lots of time at the family pool and Santa Maria Bay. This community is fantastic whether you have the kids in town or are down alone with your spouse or buddies. There is so much to do. One of the things we didn’t really think about, given the relatively small size of the community, was that you see the same families and kids trip after trip and that gives you the opportunity to bond over time with people that have similar interests. Something Maravilla is phenomenal at is how well they organize interesting activities for children that allow them to work together in low-pressure environments. The feeling of being part of a club is nice and we had an idea of how impactful it would be, but it is very much taking on a life of it’s own.”

Surely there must be one disappointment? “None. It has exceeded our hopes and although construction isn’t slated to end until early next year Ohana has been excellent at managing expectations and over-delivering. Truthfully, what they are doing is staggering and we could not be happier!” Maravilla is a vibrant and active community, while Montage Los Cabos, the Montage Residences, and Twin Dolphin Golf Club are slated to open late 2018. I had the opportunity to tour the model unit that is now open with Montage Director of Sales Julie Benjamin and I can attest that the eager anticipation is completely justified. *

CABO

Casa 58 located in the guard-gated community of Cresta del Mar is a stunning brand-new contemporary masterpiece. It wont be easy to find a more detail-oriented home, impeccably built and with panoramic ocean views. Many green technologies have been used to promote environmentally friendly living and low overhead, such as: • ICF technology (Insulated Concrete Forms). The building blocks are made out of recycled polystyrene for thermal insulation of walls. This translates in energy savings in the long run. • Double pane Low-E coated windows help maintain excessive heat out of the house. • High efficiency thermal controlled PVC window frames with metal structure. • Crossed ventilation house design allows for natural air flow helping keep the house fresher. • LED lighting all around to save on energy costs. • Bacteria type water treatment plant. Water is safely used to irrigate plants. • Inverter type A/C minisplits. • Solar panels on roof top supply energy to all exterior lighting. • Tankless gas heaters for low gas consumption. The highest quality finishes throughout matched with clean lines and designer touches make this home the perfect fit a Cabo luxury escape. 6BR/5BA and over 4,500 sq ft of living space allow plenty of separation between living areas and bedrooms, which makes the property ideal for entertaining.

LOS CABOS REAL ESTATE TOUR

LOS CABOS, WHAT ARE WE SELLING? LIFESTYLE VS. REAL ESTATE by Blake Harrington

Are you interested in learning more about the Los Cabos Real Estate market?

Join REmexico Real Estate, with no obligation, as they tour interested parties in a few select homes at different price points. This is a great opportunity to learn more about how to invest in Mexico and the different communities and their amenities.

Are you curious about what homes are selling for in the area?

REmexico's experienced real estate tour guides are licensed Realtors and will explain different pricing, market trends, and provide you with the recent data that will help educate you on the goings on in our market.

No matter your budget or style, the question begs asking: What are you really buying when you purchase your vacation or full-time home in Cabo? The answer is simple. Cabo is a Lifestyle. Sometimes our clients and even our agents get so bogged down on the details of the property that they lose sight on what the real goal is. The goal is to own a piece of this beautiful paradise “La Baja” and enjoy family trips and extended stays, and to really soak in the experience of Cabo.

How is title held for foreigners in Mexico?

We have the distinct pleasure of being able to hand over the keys to our clients at the end of closing a sale. But, rarely is it about the property itself. The smile we see on our clients’ faces at closing is the realization that their dream has become a reality, and that they are now residents of this charming place. It’s an honor to be a part of each client’s lifestyle purchase. It truly changes people, and we can see in them what we saw in ourselves when we took that leap of faith and moved to Baja.

Free of charge. Tuesdays 10am - 1pm RSVP's are required with a minimum of 48 hours notice: info@CaboRealEstate.com 619.60 0.5559 from USA 624.122.1469 from Mexico

With a year-round calendar full of fun and exciting events like the Los Cabos Open of Surf, the new ATP Professional Tennis Tournament, The Bisbee’s, Sammy Hagar’s Birthday Bash week, and much, much more, there is constantly something fun to do as a resident and owner in Cabo. Not to mention the pristine beaches and desert, awardwinning restaurants, art, music, wildlife, and everything else you imagine when you think “Cabo Lifestyle”.

Your tour guide will have insightful brochures and pamphlets that help explain the Fideicomiso and how it works.

Being part of the Real Estate community in Los Cabos gives you the opportunity to constantly meet and work with new real estate buyers. Our journey with new clients and prospects begins with pricing, market trends, community information, floor plans and decor, and much more.
