Award Winning Pools within Villas Del Mar and Espiritu in Cabo

Recently two Del Mar Development properties were recognized by The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals. Designed by Vogel & Associates, the pool at Villas at La Montaña 12 in Villas Del Mar and The Ledges condominium pool in Espiritu were awarded with Silver and Bronze-level recognition, respectively, in the International Awards of Excellence Competition.

Villa 12, currently listed by Del Mar Real Estate for $9,000,000 USD, is a custom 5,616 sq. ft. estate with an expansive outdoor entertaining area that centers around the award-winning pool and the view to the Sea of Cortez.

As the award-winning description states, “The vanishing edge of the pool blends the ocean and the pool and the stepping stones seem to lead to infinity. The glass tile was chosen to fade with the beautiful sunsets of the area. The sunken spa is a very pleasant surprise at the end of the pad made by the stepping stones. A combination between straight and curve forms give character to this transitional style home. Stone water bowls add pleasant distraction and work as attractive architectural accents.”

The Ledges community pool, located in Espiritu, was awarded bronze in the category of commercial pool installations outside the U.S. and Canada.

Described as, “an elegant geometric swimming pool blending with the desert and ocean landscape, with a light color inviting to relax and enjoy the magnificent look of the bay, the mountains and the city. The stepping stones allowing access from the east to the west give a floating sensation. A sunken spa and the vanishing edge invite to an amplitude sense. water bubblers and water bowls add nice noise to the environment, insulating the surrounding noise for a more relaxing experience.”
