Staying/Getting Married in a Cabo Villa?
Posted 08 February 2007 - 10:44 PM
We are leaning towards renting a big villa (Clara Vista) and having our family stay there. The house is gorgeous and we're thinking about getting married in the dome by the pool and then having a dinner inside the house. (i ready about Lazy Gourmet on here - putting up another post!)
Has anyone done this? I'd love to hear your thoughts. We want things to be very casual. We'll have our friends rent houses or stay at a close hotel. I was going to rent through cabovillas.com
Let me know what you think!

On the Yahoo Cabo Brides group there is a bride from 2005 who got married at a villa in Pedregal. I don't remember details but I know she wrote a review about it somewhere in the files. Not that I am advocating you to spend time on that board instead, but see what you can find: CaboWeddings : Cabo Weddings
Also, welcome to the board!

In Pedregal, the owners charge a Permit Fee of $550 and an Event Fee equal to one night's stay. Supposedly, the permit fee is because the community is gated and they have to bring in extra guards, and they may have to escort photographers, etc to the villa.
Villas in the corridor don't charge a Permit Fee. They just charge an Event Fee.
Keep in mind that there is a 3 night minimum at the villas, and not all owners allow events at there villa. Also, some of the owners may be willing to waive the event fee. Clara Vista was one of my favorite but is out of my price range. My hunt continues

I did a LOT of research into having our wedding at a villa. I LOVED LOVED LOVED the idea, but we decided against it for financial reasons and logistics. Each villa in Pedegral costs about $6500 more to have your wedding there (on top of the nightly rental fee)... That's a high location fee, but you can save costs on catering and decor because it's already so beautiful. My guests are all staying in the La Jolla area- which is close to San Jose del Cabo, and Pedegral is on the furthest side of Cabo San Lucas- about 35 minutes from where our guests will be. Another thing to consider is transportation to the villas- the roads within Pedegral are very windy, up and down a hill, depending on which side the villa is on (Pacific or Sea of Cortez). The guests would not be able to all drive to the wedding- they do not allow all those cars in there- and you would NOT want anyone to drive in this area who'd had even a sip of alcohol!
I visited 2 villas there, and looked at Clara Vista online... feel free to write me with any questions. If you can afford it, and can transport your guests to and from there- go for it- it is breathtaking!!! VERY European!

Do you have a wedding coordinator? I am working with Adriana at Terramar, and she had a man let us into 3 houses there...
