Relaxing, well-stocked, and GREAT beach access
We spent a week at the condo in the middle of a snowy winter and loved every minute of sun and surf.
The condo has everything needed to prepare meals and so forth. If you want a meal out or to bring something in, the unit is within walking distance of restaurants and the Mega grocery store (rellenos from the Mega deli are outstanding!). The condo was perfectly clean, the owner was very helpful, and the condo's property manager was available during the day to assist if anything went wrong. We recommend this particular unit to anyone who wants to be close to the beach and is more interested in surfing/snorkeling than in Cabo San Lucas's nightlife. The Vonage phone was a real asset (our cell didn't work there), and HBO etc was a nice addition.
You can pick up a bus just above the condos to get to the grocery store, the airport, and downtown San Jose. In fact we recommend taking the bus to get to know residents of the area and because it is very inexpensive (about 8 pesos, which was less than $1 US at the time of our visit). You can rent a car in San Jose for a day trip to places like Todos Santos. For short jaunts to Chileano Beach for snorkeling, the bus worked great. Surfing spots and spots for renting boards were a few minutes away on foot (best rates were at Costa Azul surf shop, which is across the highway). We felt very safe everywhere we went.
Great for couples! Teenagers who want to party might prefer to be at a large resort hotel or in Cabo San Lucas, but if they want to be in the water this is perfect. Families with young children might find the 3rd floor location and single bedroom challenging. Everyone would enjoy beach access and the community pool, which no one but us seemed to use. Be sure to ask for an extra set of keys so part of the family can be in one place and the ones on the beach can get back into the property from the locked beach-access gate.
Overall, GREAT experience that we hope to repeat in future winters!
