A private villa is ideal for those who want space to spread out and do their own thing rather than be wrist-banded to an all-inclusive resort or hotel among hundreds of other travelers. Families will appreciate the extra room that comes with having an entire home to themselves; groups will dig the exclusivity and, oftentimes, the individual cost-savings; and couples will love the fantasy of being rulers of a palatial palace on the ocean.

Both Cabo San Lucas (CSL) and San Jose del Cabo (SJDC) sit at the south tip of the Baja Peninsula, so it’s first worth deciding which Cabo you want to call home. CSL has a lively party atmosphere akin to what you’d find in Cancun, while SJDC is more upscale with offerings such as golf and fine dining. Either way, you’ll have the serenity and privacy of your own villa to retreat back to—or never leave at all.

Here are seven luxurious, air-conditioned villas in Cabo to consider.

This Mediterranean-style villa could have been plucked from Santorini, Greece. With an exotic white domed facade, this six-bedroom oceanfront palace sleeps up to 14 people. Marble floors, a gourmet kitchen and a home theater are among the posh features of this five-level villa. But we’d rather stay outdoors, savoring panoramic views of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific from its open-air dining area, custom swimming pool or whirlpool tub.

As the name implies, this four-bedroom villa is heaven. Spend all day lounging in its private saltwater infinity pool with sweeping Sea of Cortez views. Several terraces, ideal for entertaining, complement the villa interior offerings: a full kitchen, dining room and living area. The open-plan great room, decorated in hues of sand and terracotta, put the focus on the sea views, bringing the outdoors in. But when nature beckons, the gorgeous white-sand beach below is just a short walk away. This villa sleeps up to 10 people.

Round up your favorite posse: This 10,000-square-foot, five-bedroom villa sleeps up to 14 guests and comes with a full-time, live-in house staff. Surrounded by granite rock formations and coconut trees, the mansion is a mere 100 yards away from the beach, which means drifting to sleep and waking up to a lullaby of crashing waves. The villa offers unobstructed views of Pedregal Beach and the Pacific Ocean throughout, which means enjoying spectacular sunsets from the pool, terrace or any room in the home.

Oh. My. Gosh. The private infinity pool at this villa is a stunner, not to mention an ideal perch for whale watching. (There’s also an indoor/outdoor sound system that will play tunes to match your mood.) Just 100 yards from the beach, this villa sleeps up to 10 people. It boasts four spacious suites with private baths and Sea of Cortez views, plus a separate one-bedroom apartment with private bath, and a state-of-the-art media room with a 200-movie library. In other words, plenty of room to spread out and chill.

Holy spacious. This seven-bedroom family villa sleeps up to 16 people. Shaded by dozens of palm trees and perched above the sandy Chileno Beach, the property offers direct access to white sand and turquoise waters. Swim, snorkel, dive, kayak or windsurf in the Sea of Cortez before returning back to your posh palace, where the private pool and every bedroom have a view of the ocean.

In the exclusive Pedregal area of Cabo San Lucas, the location of this five-bedroom oceanfront villa is a quiet sanctuary, yet close to the Cabo action. It sleeps up to 10 people and boasts breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez. Tastefully decorated with French Provencale furnishings, the estate definitely does a good job of luring guests outdoors for alfresco entertainment, thanks to its gorgeous pool, barbecue, sundeck and impeccably manicured grounds — which includes a fruit orchard.
