Danzante Bay opens first phase of homes

New Golf Gem at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto Debuts “El Cardon” Homesites

LORETO, Baja California Norte, Mexico (Jan. 11, 2018) — The initial collection of luxury coastal residences at Danzante Bay Golf Club—part of Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa at the Islands of Loreto—are now available. Included is a selection of four original home designs starting at 4,500 square feet.

Adjacent to the first, second, and 10th holes of Danzante Bay Golf Club– the eye-popping new Rees Jones-designed course – the 25 condominium sites offer views of the Sea of Cortez and Baja’s majestic Sierra de la Giganta mountain range.

Part of the “Cardon” (cactus) series of building sites, the first-available private residences feature a choice of four distinctive models, each on lots averaging 0.6 acres:

  • Monserrat: One-story, 4,591 square feet total living space; 2 bedrooms, 2½ baths, plus detached casita
  • Danzante: One-story, 6,896 square feet total living space; 3 bedrooms, 3½ baths, plus detached casita
  • Carmen: Two-story, 6,572 square feet total living space; 4 bedrooms, 3½ baths
  • Luxury:  Two-story, 10,700 square feet total living space; 5 bedrooms, 6 baths, exercise room, game room, pool, spa, outdoor steam shower

Lots start at $284,000, with the developer offering to complete the first 10 homes in this initial phase for only 10 percent over cost (including appliances and choice of four hard finishes).
Golfers are flocking to the course to see and play the recently completed Danzante Bay layout along the Baja Peninsula’s eastern coastline. The 7,107-yard, par-72 course offers magnificent views of the bay and the Sea of Cortez as it gently takes players from desert terrain around a crystal lake, through sand dunes, and up into the mountains.

Danzante Bay residents can experience and have access to the amenities and services of Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa’s 4500 acres of unspoiled beauty. The resort boasts stretches of exquisite shoreline, stunning ocean and mountain views, three outstanding restaurants, five swimming pools, the luxurious Sabila Spa, tennis courts, miles of hiking trails, glass-bottomed kayaks, and sport fishing.

Villa del Palmar takes full advantage of the region’s unique beauty, authentic culture, quiet beaches, scenic vistas, rich history, and natural habitats. The resort ’s shuttle service enables guests to explore historic Loreto and visit the 1697 mission that made the town famous. The area is also known for its wildlife, including the 900 species of fish in an area that has been declared a World Heritage Site.

Only a two-hour flight on Alaska Airlines from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Loreto International Airport (LTO) also is accessible with direct WestJet flights from Calgary, and from Tijuana via Calafia Airlines (three times a week year-round).
