Putin’ On The Ritz

We just had to say that.
BY: BILL FOLDES

Last week sales opened for the initial phase of 27 single family free standing homes at West Enclave, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve Residence in Puerto Los Cabos.

PLC is a beautiful, calm, gated community of large homes built on a hillside overlooking the Sea of Cortez. It’s the other side of San Jose, past the little community of La Playita and the fancy pants new marina recently built there. In our opinion Puerto Los Cabos is the new Pedregal, attracting the kind of upscale people the Pedregal used to before the homeowners association lost their grip on the rules and regs and it became, well, not what it originally was. There are apartment people living there now, and it shows.

We predict sales will go fast, as the entire community is so hot now, and $70 million in pre-sales of this small enclave have already been reported.

The Residences, as they’re called, will be located adjacent to the Ritz-Carlton Reserve hotel that will open next year. And of course the hotel amenities are available to the homeowners.

Prices  for the initial phase range on up from $4.2 million.

Each indoor/outdoor style villa will feature a combined 10,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space, sleek and modern architecture with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Sea of Cortez, a double kitchen, and five en-suite bedrooms with indoor/outdoor showers.

 Outdoor amenities include more than 4,000 square feet of outdoor living space complete with a private swimming pool and spa, covered living and dining area with bar, a fireplace and open air courtyard with a fire feature. That’s a gas fire spigot spewing more heat in the air, along with pretty flames.

Owners of the Residence will have access to the legendary Ritz-Carlton service, including a full-time director of residences, an owners-only concierge, and additional residential staff dedicated to the needs and whims  of Residence owners and their guests. A la carte services from the adjacent Ritz-Carlton Reserve hotel include in-residence dining and catering, butler service, housekeeping and specialized children’s programs.
