Villas in Mexico offer vacationers the ultimate luxury experience, particularly when booking the stellar accommodations in Los Cabos. Though the region's immaculate beaches, fine dining and myriad shopping opportunities may be considered its biggest draws, links men and women hoping to get in a few holes while relaxing in the sun-kissed region may want to check out the impressive greens and challenging fairways of the Cabo Real Golf Course, one of the region's most popular clubs.
Located along the coastal corridor between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, Cabo Real is a sprawling 19-hole course with a 72 par that features a number of natural and man-made obstacles, as well as unbeatable views of nearby mountains and coastline. The club, which spreads across more than 7,000 yards, has hosted numerous international tournaments over the years, including two PGA Senior Slams.
As for the quality of play, Cabo Real is an everyman's course, with enough challenge to keep low-handicap golfers interested, and enough variety to attract beginners to the game. The front nine draws golfers toward the mountains, with the first and fifth holes, both par fives, proving particularly challenging. The back nine slows the pace a bit, though as players tee off toward the ocean, the views of the sea will be unforgettable – particularly on the course's famous twelfth hole, which offers an impressive vista of the Sea of Cortes, the remaining fairways and more.
Guests are also welcome to enjoy a nice meal at the course's clubhouse, which features a restaurant and bar.
Of course travelers hoping to unwind after a great day on the links will likely want to return to their luxury rentals to enjoy their time south of the border. Though the region is home to several beautiful properties that can make for a memorable stay, guests that love the sea may want to make reservations for the Villa Amanda. This five-bedroom beachfront villa boasts a unique art-deco style and private beach access that are sure to entice visitors to spend a little more time around the homestead. From its gorgeous infinity pool and Jacuzzi tub, to its half marble granite baths, this is true luxury living, and with high-end toiletries and available grocery service, Villa Amanda can provide all the comforts of home.
