Where Travel Dreams Come True

By Cheryl Alexander

These days, time is a coveted luxury. Just as important is where, with whom and how you spend your time. At Quintess, they believe that when it’s time to get away, you should enjoy every minute to the fullest — which is why they
offer luxury travel experiences with no compromises. Each trip is custom-tailored, individually wrapped and crafted with care because Quintess does more than simply plan vacations. They create personal experiences for their members that last a lifetime.


The Quintess member relations team knows how you want to travel. The number of club members each team member serves is low, so they can truly get to know you. And unlike other vacation clubs, travel plans are made live and with thorough consultation. Quintess’ destination hosts have the longest tenure in the industry, so members are able to enjoy local experiences unmatched in the industry. And with more hosts per home than any other destination club, you are ensured exceptional service knowing your host won’t be tied up serving others. And no matter where you go, you’ll find your cupboard stocked with your favorites, your activities pre-arranged and a team at your disposal to grant wishes at your command. The Quintess team handles all the details, so you can relax and enjoy the experiences available to you.


The majority of Cabo homes are located in the exclusive Palmilla development. Quintess’ exquisite enclave of villas is sublimely convenient – R&R and fun activities are just a golf cart ride away! Access to the fantastic Club Ninety Six beach club offers one of the only swimmable beaches in the area while the state-of-the-art Club Espiritu Fitness Center provides mesmerizing views for the most gratifying work-out ever. A round of golf at the 27-hole Jack Nicklaus Palmilla golf course challenges pro and novice golfers alike (with preferred pricing for Quintess Members). Charter the lavish Club Ninety Six Catamarans between November and March and you will be amazed to catch picture-perfect shots of whales with baby calves breeching!

Perfect your visit to Los Cabos with a special dinner experience. Enjoy a relaxing dinner with friends at the villa prepared by one of their fabulous chefs, a romantic dinner on the beach at Club Ninety Six, or a tasting table on the bluff for two at Agua by Larbi. Sit back and relax, you’ve come to the right place. Quintess Collection Los Cabos is your ultimate ocean oasis!

Bill Anderson is publisher and travel editor of Lifestyles & Homes Magazines. He says, “I have had many opportunities to travel to some really great destinations and resorts. One of my favorite locations is Cabo. It is truly beautiful and one of the safest places I visit. I have frequented the Villas at the Palmilla development for over 20 years and I’m amazed at how terrific the upkeep is on these properties. They still look new! “Everything was ready upon our arrival. Our Host, Alejandra, had stocked our villa with the groceries that we’d ordered and welcomed us with margaritas, chips and guacamole. Our host had also arranged a Chef dinner for our first night and breakfast each morning, by Chef Mia of Mia’s Delights. Each meal was perfect. They were always on time, cooked and cleaned up. What a great vacation treat. “Each villa is supplied with two golf carts that were used to sightsee, go to the pool and beach at the very beautiful Club 96. Quintess has fabulous properties all over the world and they make traveling so easy by taking care of everything from airport transportation, in villa groceries, reservations at local restaurants, golf tee times and car rentals. Thanks Quintess… Loved it.”


The places in the Quintess Collection include the finest homes in the world’s most desired locations as well as the best services at the best value — 20 to 40 percent below market. You can choose to take your time off in Aspen, Jackson Hole, Turks & Caicos, St. John, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Wine Country, Europe and more.

Take Aspen, for example — a place once thought of as “only” a world-class ski resort, but now famous for year-round appeal for everyone from the culturally minded to the outdoor enthusiast. From gallery hopping to snowmobiling tours through the pristine back country to fishing on gold-medal rivers, there is no shortage of great options, not to mention the fabulous restaurants and luxury boutiques.

One of the homes at Aspen, Cloud Nine at Aspen Highlands, is equipped with an elevator accessing four bedrooms, a spacious kitchen, an entertaining area with a stone fireplace and more. The alpine-style aesthetic flows throughout the home —stone, wood and mountain lodge architecture. The three-story duplex home is a short walk to The Ritz-Carlton Residence Club where you can enjoy privileged access to select amenities. It has a two-car garage, and you are within walking distance to the village where the local buses will deliver you to the Maroon Bells in the summer, ski shuttles will bring you to different slopes in the winter, and constant shuttles into town via the RFTA (Roaring Fork Transit Authority) which goes from the Aspen Highlands to Ruby Park in Aspen with a few stops along the way.

Or perhaps an Italian getaway is what you’re longing for. Consider Lake Como, a favorite destination of the rich and famous. Villa Concetta is a six-bedroom elegant home completely restored in 2013 with original marble and terracotta floors. It is centrally located on Lake Como, making it the most convenient location to access the entire lake. There are stunning and expansive views of the lake, from the headland of Bellagio to the foothills of the Alps. You’ll love the romantic and sunny breakfast nook with garden views; the drawing room, fully furnished for grand entertaining; and the professional kitchen, complete with wood-burning pizza oven. You can swim in the heated saltwater swimming pool and rinse off in the outdoor shower, then enjoy a leisurely a stroll on the enormous manicured gardens. Or venture out of the villa and take in everything Lake Como has to offer.

At Quintess, they understand that not every trip is the same. Sometimes members prefer smaller homes and different destinations, so they have carefully curated their properties and services to expand your choices. The current Quintess partners include 600+ time and place luxury villa rentals and four-and five-star hotels and resorts.

Quintess also knows that some of its members seek more adventure-filled travel experiences. Quintess Adventures combines the world’s most far-flung and exotic locales with the security of luxurious accommodations and exemplary services, created in partnership with the world’s finest travel providers. In Bhutan, you’ll marvel at remote Himalayan temples and then relax in five-star splendor at incomparable resorts. On African safaris, you’ll enjoy the same luxurious camps chosen by royalty and celebrities.

For two people or 20, the adventures are never ending — and constantly changing, as we work to make your dreams come true. In Croatia, with stories of pristine waters, majestic ancient walled towns and infinite islands to explore, a journey through Dalmatia will open your eyes to otherworldly landscapes and this culture’s resilient sprit. In Vietnam and Cambodia, you’ll explore the fascinating heritage and stunning landscape of South East Asia on this amazing adventure as you travel from romantic Hanoi through the surreal landscape of Halong Bay. Dine on seafood on the coast of the South China Sea, float through the water markets of the Mekong Delta and tour Cambodia’s fabled temples of Angkor.
