Do you ever return from a holiday planning or dreaming about the next one? I definitely do!
The very gorgeous Villa Cortez at The One&Only Palmilla is wish list material.
The villa's entrance
Pool with Ocean view
Of course the villa is huge ( 975m2 / 10,500sqft!!!!) and
comes with all the luxuries you would expect.
I particularly like these inclusions:
Dedicated fitness trainer
Themed family style dinners
Unpacking of luggage
Milk and cookies for the kiddies
Dedicated household staff of 12
What's not to love about your butler bringing you margaritas at sunset!
This paradise is an easy 20 minute flight from LA.
Oh I almost forgot this villa has been so popular they had to build another one.
