    Hi girls! I realize there are several posts regarding villas, but my FI and I are strongly considering the Villa Amanda, Villa Anne-Lei, Villa Serena group of villas and were wondering if anyone has any experience with these. I've contacted cabovillas.com but have not heard back yet. An earlier post from NYJEN (whose posts have been sooo helpful in the villa search!) stated that there was no event fee for villa amanda and I was wondering if anyone knew if this was still the case. We'd like to be married on the private beach, have cocktails on the deck, dinner on the beach and back to the deck for dancing (the beach is literally in the back yard)! Any feedback? Also, theses villas will only let you use "A Matter of Taste" for catering. Any experience with them? We'll be doing our site visit in October so any info will help! Thanks!

      Hi Donnie,

      I'm doing a Villa Wedding also, and Villa Amanda, Annie-Lei, and Serena were all recommended by my wedding planner. She told me that there's no event fee for Villa Amanda, Serena & Annie-Lei. There is a 2 night minimum stay, plus the fourth night free. I was told that the owners are willing to negotiate the nightly rate, like most owners.

      Hope this helps.
      Kimberley

          Whoops Kimberly - didn't notice the 2010 until just now. You've got lots of time! Not sure if you are planning a site visit anytime soon but I'll be down in October. I'd be happy to send you some villa info when I return.

            I recently shot a wedding at Villa Amanda 2, I can say it's a great location, it was a wedding for some 30-40 Pax, the house is great. As for the catering, I can recommend Tez at www.tezscateringcabo.com.

              Thanks Dino. Unfortunately according to the website they will only let you use A Matter of Taste. Not sure how strict they are on that.

                hi ladies,
                I'm also planning a wedding at these 3 villas. We are renting all 3 for 4 nights. My concern is that for a party of 60 it would not allow for a dance floor. (Reception at villa amanda) And i have not heard about using an exclusive caterer from our agent. Which villa rental company are you using?

                  Cammie,
                  I went through cabovillas.com, however, when I was looking into these villa a few months back I was told that they were currently up for sale and could not be guaranteed for our wedding date (which is in 2011) because they could have new owners by that time. Were you aware of this? Since our wedding is so far out we decided to not take any chances and have decided on cabo del sol. It offers the private setting we want, without having to worry about finding a new place at the last minute because our villas were sold.
                  As far as the dance floor though, We had planned on about 50 guests and we were told there would be plenty of room. We also had planned to have dinner set up on the beach or at one of the other villas, so that we wouldn't have to worry about moving tables for the dance floor. good luck!

                    Donnie,

                    We asked about that since I read your post on them being for sale. Our wedding is April 2010. We were told that if they do sell the property they would include that in the sale contract that the new owners would have to honor any exsisting contracts to rent the villa so that put our minds at ease.
                    Im having my WC do a site visit and get back with me regarding if there would be enough room. Another idea she gave me was to install pexiglass over the swimming poo and that would serve as our dancefloor! But sounds kinda expensive!
