About Villas Del Mar

Our History

Back in 1994, Houston friends and business associates Ken Schnitzer and Ron Hatfield visited Cabo San Lucas and found potential in a mountainside by the ocean. Now, with over 200 homes constructed and plans for future development, what has been created is a landmark.

With magnificent ocean views that cannot be found elsewhere, here, above the warm ocean waters and beneath the azure desert skies, lies an unexpected place. A place where two men came together to envision something greater than they expected – something better than either could have done alone.

Villas Del Mar is the result of two determined entrepreneurs who decided to test the odds and take on a mountain to create the finest residential communities in all of Mexico.
