More Than Just a Pretty Place

In Live, Los Cabos, Stay by Suzanne Koch

In a unique getaway where the desert meets the ocean, Blue Desert Cabo is quickly becoming an elite bucket list destination in Mexico, boasting a collection of opulent villas and rental properties, along with residential and commercial real estate.

The recently launched boutique rental and real estate firm has developed a refreshingly different approach to luxury travel, distinguishing itself by curating bespoke itineraries for their guests with a bevy of once-in-a-lifetime services and amenities. For guests wanting to turn their vacation into an everyday reality, Blue Desert’s team is highly qualified to find the perfect location for buyers looking for everything from condos, houses and land to commercial real estate, fractional ownership or multifamily housing, as well as exclusive listings.

Inspired by his upbringing in Las Vegas, co-founder Sean E. McClenahan channeled the art of hospitality when founding Blue Desert Cabo to create something far beyond a typical rental company. He and co-founder Juan Ramon Guevara assembled an expert concierge team who work directly with guests to organize one-of-a-kind experiences that highlight and embrace the local culture.

From a private chef whipping up fresh ceviche in your villa, to a bartender serving handcrafted libations while working on your tan, a personal trainer leading a yoga session on the beach, or a masseuse working out your kinks poolside, their team will take care of everything (even the grocery shopping!), so all you have to worry about is the caption on your Instagram selfie. Blue Desert Cabo also offers VIP airport pickup, so you’ll feel the magic of their hospitality the instant you step off the plane. Their VIP service agent will escort you to your private luxury sedan, which will then whisk you away to your villa for your tailored experience to begin.

Ranging from five to 10 bedrooms and accommodating up to 16 guests, Blue Desert Cabo’s villas provide an ideal setting for any group of friends or families traveling together for a vacation, wedding, family reunion, bachelor or bachelorette party or corporate retreat. While all of the gated properties include house cleaning service, many also feature infinity-edge pools, outdoor bars and patios, fire pits, ocean-front views and private beaches.

A standout property located on the tip of the Baja Peninsula, Casa Edwards features red-tiled roofs, whitewashed walls, colorful homemade tiles and decorative fountains to envelope you in the gracious charm of old Mexico. The eight-bedroom house faces the Sea of Cortez with a hillside cascading down to a private beach and outdoor palapa bar, along with the largest private gym in Cabo, making it a celebrity-worthy retreat.

While it will be difficult to peel yourself away from your villa, Blue Desert Cabo’s team has established partnerships with some of the top-notch restaurants and companies in the Los Cabos area so you won’t have to frantically search through Yelp and TripAdvisor. From swimming with dolphins and golfing on pristine courses to cooking classes at Flora Farms, dinner at the stylish restaurant Acre or a sightseeing tour, the knowledgeable staff knows all the best spots to hit up in town and beyond.

Blue Desert Cabo brings the resort to you. There’s no standing in line to check-in at the lobby or rushing down to the pool at an early hour to claim a lounge chair. Their professional team and experiential offerings seamlessly blend world-class accommodations with top-notch service to create the best possible experience. What will be on your itinerary?
