According to a recent report in the Wall Street Journal,luxury Houston,Texas,based U.S. homebuilder Kickerillo Companies will make its international debut in Cabo San Lucas,Mexico. The corporation has announced that it will begin building luxury homes in Cabo,which is located in the state of Baja California Sur.
“This opportunity in Cabo is exciting for us as we are very familiar with the area. Cabo is a popular destination for Texans – Houstonians in particular – and Californians,” shared Vincent Kickerillo,who is chairman and CEO of Kickerillo Companies. “The ‘Kickerillo in Cabo’ homes,from 3,500 to 15,000 square feet,are expected to fetch from $1.5 million to more than $25 million each.”
This announcement farther underscores the growing popularity of Cabo San Lucas real estate,which offers unbelievable natural beauty,including spectacular views of the desert mountains of Baja,a fabulous seaside community,paddle boarding,light tackle and sport fishing,boating,snorkeling,diving and kite boarding,to name only a few of the many offerings that are available here. In addition,Cabo overlooks the sparkling waters of the Sea of Cortez,which is bordered along the shoreline by pristine white sand beaches that are perfect for sunbathing and swimming in the ocean.
The popularity of Cabo among expats and travelers from around the world is also due in part to the city’s convenient location,which provides easy access via a modern international airport to major cities throughout North America and beyond.
“It’s actually easier to fly from Houston or California to Cabo than to drive to most large cities,” writes the Wall Street Journal. “United Airlines offers numerous flights from Houston,while American Airlines serves Dallas,and nonstop service from Orange County,California,can be booked via AirTran,which was recently acquired by Southwest Airlines.”
Other popular attractions in Cabo include the famed El Arco arch,which is part of a rock formation that is known as the Three Friars and makes up the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula. Here,visitors can take a glass-bottomed boat out to the place where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez,bearing witness to a landscape that has literally been centuries in the making. In addition,whale watching is popular here from October through March,when the annual migration of gray whales brings thousands of these magnificent creatures to the lagoons around the peninsula,much to the delight of both visitors and locals.
