Coming in at number four on our recent list of the 10 best desert getaways, the Villa Santa Cruz, Stephanie Pearson wrote, is a "beautiful adobe hacienda with a soft orange patina" that "sits on 20 acres of secluded beachfront property." While the building looks as though it's been there for hundreds of years, construction was only completed in 2006. "Out the front door and just a five-minute walk down the beach, surfers can head to La Pastora, with its giant breaks and minimal crowds," Pearson continued.
