Situated on the golden corridor between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, the oceanfront Villa Serena represents the contemporary revolution well underway in one of Mexico’s most popular vacation destinations. Recently remodeled by Erinn Valencich, founder of the award-winning, Los Angeles-based firm, Erinn V. Design Group, the 6,103-square-foot home features a casually elegant, modern sensibility designed to suit the beachside lifestyle of Los Cabos.
Natural stone, earthy tones, and warm wood elements enliven the seamless indoor/outdoor living experience. The airy great room features receding walls of glass and a chef-worthy, open kitchen with large, center prep island. A stone backsplash and pendant lighting of different shapes and lengths add a hint of organic, modern character. Sleek white walls throughout contrast with dark-hued accent walls and wood features, while five bedrooms, five full baths, and a powder room provide ample space for entertaining guests.
The sprawling terrace features an infinity-edge, saltwater pool, jetted tub, limestone fire pit, and marble and wood cooking area with countertop seating. A walkway leads across the pool to a “floating” dining terrace shaded by a large, round palapa roof. Steps lead to the white-sand beach below, where beach gear, from kayaks to stand-up paddle boards, can be stored for adventures on the Sea of Cortez. Villa Serena, a self-contained private retreat, sits on an 11,043-square-foot homesite within the gated Blue Sea enclave.
