Known as the “Private side of Cabo” the master plan community of Querencia, on the San José del Cabo corridor, encompasses 1,800 acres. Querencia was launched in 2000 and since then has been a highly desired address for luxury buyers. Anchored by a 58,000 square foot clubhouse that offers an array of amenities including a fitness center, yoga pavillion, kids and teen clubs, multiple swimming pools, on-site dining options, and a wine cellar that can be reserved for private dinners, there are not enough hours in the day to enjoy all that the “Q” offers. Tom Fazio designed the Querencia golf course as his first project in Mexico that was at one time named the #1 golf course in all of the country by Golfweek magazine. Plans for a second course to be designed by Gil Hanse are currently underway as well as the devlopment of the Ocean Club on the cove of Playa Acapulquito, Cabo’s best longboard surf wave.
I spoke with a couple that had owned within Querencia for many years to find out what makes this community so special.
“When we originally were searching for our perfect Cabo home we had tunnel vision... we only wanted to see properties on the ocean-side because that is what we had pictured in our mind about Cabo for all of these years. Being on the other side of the highway, we thought, would not be of interest to us. We exhausted our Realtor who must have shown us over twenty homes and only begrudgingly accepted his advice to take a look at -Just one more.- Looking back I am so glad we did. When we walked into the property within Querencia we looked at each other and said: This is it!”
Pressed further about their search they said “We saw many beautiful homes on the ocean side but none had the privacy and amenity set we sought. We had been coming to Cabo for years and were always charmed by San José del Cabo. Certainly we don’t think of ourselves as difficult but now that I think about it I guess we were. We wanted a place that felt like home and had many things to do for when the family and grand kids would visit and Querencia had it all in spades! The golf, the sense of community, the fabulous clubhouse, and the feeling that every employee loved their job and were eager to help us. That is really what sets Querenica apart from the rest of the pack.”
We discussed what about Querencia that disappointed them I was told, “At the time we purchased we thought that we sacrificed the beach living we had in mind but when they announced the purchase and expansion of the property to include the Ocean Q Club all of those concerns vanished. Now it truly is the best of both worlds!”
A recent press release announced new ownership of Querencia and plans to “evolve Querencia into an even more vibrant family-oriented private community while preserving its outstanding golf facility, as well as its exclusivity and attention to refinement.” If past success is any indication the future of Querencia will surely be bright for years to come. *
