Every house tells a story, and in Los Cabos, on the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja peninsula Rande Gerber and his wife, Cindy Crawford build a house, actually two houses next to each other with their good friend George Clooney. The name of this compound, Casamigos—or House of Friends—says it all. The idea of planting a flag in Los Cabos came several years ago while the two men were there on vacation with a few friends.
