The splendid Villas Del Mar resort is a sanctuary that is sure to delight the senses.
Antoine de Saint-Exupry once wisely noted that “What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.” The author’s classic quote can literally be applied to the luxurious communities of Del Mar Development, an exclusive oasis clustered at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula.
In Del Mar’s privileged retreat of luxurious grounds, nature and luxury are constants that define and blend harmoniously. Lush palm trees, blue skies, and the magnificent Sea of Cortez envelop each opulent colonial-era villa, and all are complemented by the finest contemporary furnishings, equipment, and amenities.
Each home reflects the spirit of rustic tradition and elegant modernity. Grand arches, terraces, columns, and balconies of old Spanish Mexico meet world-class contemporary infinity pools, hot tubs, outdoor grills, and bars. Nature and luxury; Romanticism and comfort.
The home sites are arranged around one of the Los Cabos mountains in a way reminiscent of ancient Mediterranean cities, with some villas lining the pristine white-sand beach and others carved into the mountainside. Perched high above, like a noble eagle, is House Fryzer, the jewel in Del Mar’s crown, a stately manor structure coveted by industry leaders, media moguls and celebrities.
Built around the surrounding natural rock formations, the opulent Casa Fryzer blends seamlessly with its surroundings, overlooking the entire Del Mar complex and the Bahia de Baja, with stunning unobstructed views of the Sea of Cortez. Up here, the dominant color is blue, in all its variants. It is where the sea meets the sky.
Casa Fryzer’s exterior is intricate stone, with an expansive fortress-like quality, bold arches and colonnaded terraces, leading to a magnificent infinity pool adorned with lounge bar islands on either side and fire pits perfect for evenings. unforgettable. The inspiring design, as with other villas in Del Mar, embraces the natural bounties of its surroundings: the deep blue of the spacious infinity pool blends seamlessly with the Sea of Cortez and the sky above, creating a surreal feeling of living. in a blue paradise.
This exquisite estate has five bedrooms, a private theater, a fully equipped gym, and a splendid wine cellar.
The interior focal point of the villa is its rotunda-style living room, with a high wood-beamed ceiling and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that lead directly to the main terrace and allow for spectacular views of the pool, ocean and heaven.
The decoration is a fusion of styles that evokes a feeling of comfort and warmth. The interior is spacious and welcoming. Each bedroom has access to the outside through sliding glass doors that lead to terraces equipped with sun loungers. The design of the house seems inspired by open spaces and as such each room blends seamlessly with the outside, adding to the feeling of spaciousness, openness and aquatic exuberance.
It is an understatement to describe this astonishing villa as majestic. The unique combination of interior comfort, luxury, exterior elegance and fluidity of the Casa Fryzer space makes it the true jewel of Mexico.
Heading towards the beach, we see more of Del Mar’s upscale communities, including the famous Villas Del Mar, which are located along a two-mile stretch of pristine beach. Sculpted into the hillside, with spectacular views of the sea, is Espiritu Del Mar, a new relaxing retreat with community spaces, including open green parks, a citrus grove, manicured gardens, and miles of walking trails.
