The community of Pedregal is located at Land’s End in Cabo San Lucas, where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. If you have ever been in downtown Cabo and looked up to notice the massive homes that seem to be suspended from the cliffs of a mountain-like rock formation, then you know exactly where I am talking about. Pedregal was Los Cabos’ first luxury residential neighborhood, and 40 years later it remains a well-respected and highly sought-after place to live for full time residents, snowbirds, and investors looking for a high vacation rental return. Home prices in Pedregal range from roughly $500,000 USD to more than $10 million dollars.
Pedregal visitors and owners alike can’t help but love the old-world charm of the hand laid cobblestoned streets, along with the meticulously maintained common areas, dramatic viewpoints for capturing photos of Cabo’s Instagram-worthy sunrises and sunsets, a wide range of neighborhood amenities, and private access to a quiet and pet-friendly beach. Most villas in Pedregal have multiple levels and enjoy breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and/or the Cabo San Lucas marina. Homes often feature beautiful gardens, courtyards, and intricate stonework, and the location cannot be beat. Pedregal is only minutes away from everything that downtown Cabo has to offer including restaurants, nightlife, shopping, tourist activities and more!
Unlike other established Los Cabos communities with strict architectural guidelines that only allow for classic Mexican architecture, Pedregal regulations allow for a diverse collection of home designs from modern and contemporary, to the Mexican Hacienda style, that all blend together to form an eclectic high-end neighborhood. The Pedregal Architectural Committee and CC&R’s (Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions) ensure that although stylistically unique, each home maintains the integrity of the community to protect homeowners’ property values.
Homeowners Association (HOA) fees are based on the size of each lot or villa and are very reasonable compared to other developments in the area. The HOA fee covers 24-hour security, waterline, sewerline, water storage and distribution tank maintenance, street upkeep, gardening of all common areas, trash collection, and more.
The majority of people searching for their first home in Cabo do not realize that we have a water shortage and a lot of our neighborhoods only receive municipal water a couple times a week. To remedy this, most homes come with an underground or rooftop cistern as a backup water supply, so residents won’t notice any interruption in service. But if you have a large family or renters who use too much too fast, you may have to call a water truck to fill up your tank. Luckily, residents of Pedregal don’t have to rely on the municipal water system...they are one of the few communities in Cabo that benefit from their own water desalination plant. This is a major bonus to living in Pedregal!
Other Pedregal community amenities include:
Colegio El Camino - one of the best schools in the area offering bilingual classes from preschool to 12th grade, and the only school in the Baja with an International Baccalaureate (IB) accreditation.
The Pedregal Tennis Club - featuring two tennis courts, practice walls and tennis professionals who provide individual instruction.
The Spa at Pedregal - a wonderfully relaxing boutique spa offering a wide range of spa services including massages, facials, body scrubs, manicures, pedicures, and bridal hair and make-up. They also have a full- size lap pool, and gym with daily, weekly or monthly memberships. Don’t feel like leaving your villa? If you are staying in Pedregal, The Spa at Pedregal will even come to you!
The Los Cabos Organic Market - Every Wednesday and Saturday from 7:30am to 12pm, everyone loves The Los Cabos Organic Markets’ wide variety of locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables, herbs, organic chicken and eggs, breads, cheeses, honey, seafood, handmade artisan products and a whole lot more!
