“Wonderful Villa”
Reviewed 30 June 2017 for a stay in November 2015

This Villa is such a great place to stay in Cabo. The house is wonderful and the views are great. The house has two people who live on the property who can help with all your needs and they are fabulous! I would really recommend Villa Marcella. Also, it has a great pool and great beach access.

“The Perfect Wedding Venue… and a Fantastic place to Vacation”
Reviewed 31 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My husband and I were married at Villa Marcella and it was the most magical experience of my life. The views are breathtaking- perfect golden sand, beautifully shaped boulders, and miles of open ocean. If you are looking for a wedding venue, look no further, you will not find a better place. We had a barefoot beach ceremony, and have stunning photos of the waves rippling behind us. There is plenty of room around the pool for the reception, and a great spot for a dance floor as well. We had 75 people and there was plenty of room. Aside from being the most beautiful wedding venue, Villa Marcella, Descanso and Gran Vista are all amazing places to just vacation with friends and family. We rented Descanso and Gran Vista for a week as well for our guests, and every single person said it was perfect in both accommodation and service. Adrian is the main caretaker of Villa Marcella and he is a kind, generous and personable man. And he is an incredible chef! We hosted group dinners before the wedding for our guests, and Adrian and the other caretakers cooked for everyone, and their dishes were really outstanding. His jumbo shrimp was to die for! If you stay here, you should absolutely have them cook for you. Having the staff was wonderful- they did the perfect job at gaging when we needed their help and when we needed privacy. The villa itself is spectacular. We called it the marble palace. And lastly, Amanda, the manager of the villa is the most helpful, responsive person I have ever dealt with. She told me last fall she would help me along the way since this was also my wedding venue, and she went way above and beyond responding to obscure questions from guests that I passed along to putting up signs on each door stating the name of the room, and much much more. She is an incredibly easy person to work with, which I think is a huge reason to also consider this for if not your wedding venue, than a great vacation spot. Best place I’ve ever stayed, hands down.

“Exceptional service and even better accommodations - First Class!”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Fred and his staff were awesome to work with - I could tell I was dealing with a first class operation on my initial inquiry. The team was very informative of the area, always available to answer questions and I was treated as a VIP at all times . The Villa was over the top - amazing views, a location that couldn't be better and onsite staff that helped with groceries, meals and other day to day housekeeping.

The day before our arrival, Hurricane Blanca threatened our entire vacation - we almost didn't go - naturally we were concerned about canceling last minute but Fred was a stand up guy - he offered us a full refund - the excitement got the best of us, we bit the bullet and decided to let the storm play out while we were there. Good thing we did because we had the time of our life. In the end we did leave a day early as the storm continued toward land fall - Fred once again was a class act and refunded us the last day we were not there. We had a large crew and this was only one of the Villas we rented, the other home was also a great experience but the service was not equal and there was no refund on the last day either.

Amazing Villa and even better service - I was treated like a celebrity and lived like one too!

“Magical, Majestic Stay”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A long postponed stay at Villa Marcella due to cancelled flights after the hurricane and it was worth the wait! The owners were so accommodating in our reschedule even though the Villa itself sustained no damage. From the moment you enter the light filled villa with a 180 view of the ocean, you are relaxed and well taken care of by Adrian and the staff. The rooms each has its own air conditioning control, so all can sleep in comfort. The small fridge in the bedroom was stocked with water, tea and beer at our request.
Adrian cooked us gourmet meals each night and shared recipes and cooking techniques. He went almost daily to the fish market and store for fresh finds. His BBQ Jumbo Prawns and Enchiladas were a huge hit but no meal was less than exceptional so leave it to him and you will be happy. His raspberry vinegarette, churros, bananas foster and other specialties were just wonderful. The girls never left the house except a quick trip into town for the Kentucky Derby and some shopping, and the boys had a ball catching a 140lb marlin on the GoDeep boat with Captain Frankie set up by owner, which Adrian then cooked up to perfection.The house is perfectly furnished with lots of comfortable chairs that face the ocean which because of the storm in New Zealand had huge sets of waves we could watch all day. This is not a swimming beach and caution should be noted, don't turn your back on the waves. But it is a nice long, safe, wide walking beach. We decided it was the most reasonably priced luxury vacation we had taken. Other than rent, we paid about $20pp/day in food, Adrian for Cooking and Tip. Recommend contacting Costco and having them pull your items so when you or Adrian arrive, they will just load it for you. No running around the warehouse or waiting in line. Since house at bottom of a hill, good hiking/running was available right outside the door.

“Magnificient Villa Marcella, Cabo San Lucas”
Reviewed 31 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Initially we were booked to be in Cabo 9/17. Of course, we all know what happened on 9/15! Not knowing how the recovery would go, we were told that we had a year to reschedule our stay. We absolutely could not wait a year. We worked very closely with Earth, Sea and Sky in monitoring the progress of the return of services and finally made the decision we go forward with our October visit. All was in place until we learned that the villa we had requested had suffered damages that could not be repaired by the time we arrived. Earth, Sea and Sky searched out other available villas and Marcella was the one we chose.

That was the best decision we ever made. Marcella is beautiful and catered to all of our needs – mainly comfort, but also space, covered patio, pool, hot tub, fire pit, beach, and Adrian. Of all of the times we have been to Cabo (we always stay in villas), this was the best trip we have experienced to date. There was something very healing during our stay and I attribute that specifically to your home and your staff. We cannot thank you enough.

“Perfect Family Vacation”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My family and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Villa Marcella. I was the 2013 "3 nights free" winner and ended up extending extending our stay so that we could fully take advantage of this beautiful home. This home was perfect for our group ranging from an 11 month old baby to the 65+ grandparents. Each bedroom offered a tremendous amount of privacy and beautiful views that let you feel you were all alone, while the numerous common areas were perfect for family meals and activities throughout the day. Lastly, being on the beach -- and the last house on the stretch -- afforded us tremendous views, countless walks, and breathtaking sunsets.

We simply cannot wait to return!
