San Jose del Cabo Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

This rare 2,040 sq. ft. corner condo is so well situated and beautifully furnished that when you step in the front door, you have to pinch yourself to see if you're dreaming! Right away, you notice the picture window in the dining area, the huge expanse of five sliding doors that open up the corner of the living room . . . so you gaze out over the San José estuary towards where the sun rises over Punta Gorda . . . all the way along miles of sandy beaches and the Sea of Cortez.

Step onto the wraparound covered terrace, sink into the day bed, sofa, or comfy arm chairs, and look all the way to Palmilla Point, where the sun sets. Look down from this third floor corner veranda, with its stereo speakers, lights, and designer teak dining table, and you'll see one of the resort's infinity pools (long enough for laps), an oversized Jacuzzi, a putting practice area, a BBQ area, and lush landscaping. Raise your sights again, and notice the green of the San José golf course, a reasonably priced alternative to the many world-class courses in Los Cabos, where our Concierge can arrange for you to play. Out front, the tennis court is shaded in the morning and has lights for night play. (Anna Kournikova suggested its location to the resort's famous singer-developer, Enrique Iglesias!)

The furnishings are ALL NEW IN 2015 due to Hurricane Odile, which severely affected this home on September 14, 2014. We're back with a beautiful new look and fresh everything, with quality even surpassing what we had before! Hurricane season is mid-July to mid-October, so despite that horrendous event, there's no need to concern yourself about it the rest of the year!

At Jazz Corner, we invite you to enjoy:

* airy spaciousness and the fun of vibrant art and décor

* comfortable sofas and beds

* a color printer/copier/scanner

* architectural details like 10' high ceilings, travertine, and granite

* alder wood cabinetry refurbished and refinished in 2015 to achieve a new, lighter look

* exciting original art, accessories from fine Mexican artisans, & quilts made by the owner.

Upgraded and furnished to be the owners' private vacation home one day soon, this unit is as well-appointed as you'd want -- there's nothing generic about it! Premium value also comes from:

* its unique southeastern corner location (much pretty than the other corner)

* every available upgrade such as GE Monogram and ICON appliances

* Multiple built-in speakers in separately adjustable zones

* satellite tv, Apple TV, Sony Bluetooth-AirPlay, 2 HDTVs and 2 multi-region DVD players

* Private wireless network besides the resort's network

* extensive extra built-in lighting and fans

* a modified kitchen layout with extra workspace and a spacious peninsula

* extra marble

* a Jacuzzi tub

* improved showers

* a safe . . . and

* reserved parking in the garage at the base of the elevator to keep your car cool and out of the sunshine that the area enjoys 350 to 360 days a year.

We love this place and are happy to rent it to couples seeking a romantic getaway, a shared vacation with another couple, or a seasonal escape for families or friends seeking active outdoor sports or relaxation. We provide lots of information to help you prepare for and get maximum enjoyment out of your stay!

About Chris Smith

San Francisco empty-nesters who've always enjoyed living and/or vacationing at different beaches, we were thrilled to discover San José, 'the quiet Cabo' with so much to do, and quality property as nice and relaxing as this uniquely situated walk-everywhere hilltop condo at Alegranza Resort.

Chris Smith purchased this condo in 2010

Why Chris Smith chose San Jose del Cabo

• friendly, family-oriented, beach town built around a historic mission

• visitors are appreciated but the town isn't overrun with cruise ship and Spring break crowds

• an array of great sporting activities

• great restaurants and exciting art district

• lots of spa services, coffee shops, and places to chill

• desert-meets-the-ocean setting has relatively low humidity and few bugs

• easy direct flights and 15-minute drive from the airport

• so many unspoiled beaches that you can visit a different one every day

What makes this condo unique

• gorgeous 270-degree views from sunrise to sunset

• privacy (visual and acoustic)

• fortunately not adjoining a loud cobblestone street like the NW corner

• watch the sun rise from either of the two King beds

• expanded kitchen layout - great to work in and enjoy views in two directions

• a huge picture window in the dining area overlooking the sea, estuary, and town

• all the glass facing the ocean view–we love 'em wide open! Only the corners have this

• international design and high quality construction, plus our new-in-2015 upgrades

• cooling breezes on the terrace, where it's sunny in the morning and has p.m. shade

• Flexibility for large groups because this condo is next door to another 2 BR, 2 BA condo we bought so that extended family and friends can be right next to each other in 4050 sq. ft. If this condo is booked, or for a less expensive alternative, see the other 2 BR condo 'Salsa'—not a corner, but it sleeps 4-6 more economically (VRBO #232035).

Guestbook comments from the manager

[Email on arrival] We have arrived at Jazz Corner and LOVE it! Cesar picked us up at the airport and Debra and Socorro were waiting at the unit with yummy margaritas and a beautiful selection of chips, salsa, guacamole and quesadillas. The girls are in heaven and we are settled onto the pink sofas watching the Mex-Arg game.

[Email upon departure) We've had a wonderful week and loved staying in your condo - hope to be back and will certainly share our experience with family & friends.

[Comment in Guestbook] We have really enjoyed our stay @ Jazz Corner! Afternoons spent reading and relaxing on the breezy porch were a lovely way to escape the heat of the day. Highlights of our trip to Los Cabos included a day in Todos Santos, three great meals at the 7 Seas Restaurant (highly recommend it!), surfing, snorkeling at Palmillas Beach and Chileno Bay, and walking downtown almost every night for yummy ice cream @ the French Riviera Restaurant. We hope to be back :-). Thank you.

Fabulous Stay at Jazz Corner in Alegranza

  • 5 of 5

Jazz Corner was wonderful! From the interior design, to the attractive furnishings, to the thoughtful attention to detail - all was carefully orchestrated to create a comfortable and beautiful accommodation. We loved the use of color - it was playful and set the mood for for our stay in Mexico. We were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have chosen a more beautiful location! The restaurants were fantastic - Casianos was our favorite (and that's saying something... because we didn't have a bad meal while in Cabo!) The beaches were super, but our favorite spot was by the pool at Alegranza at the end of the day. Chris and Toby, thank you for sharing your home with us - we had a very special vacation because of you!

Owner's Response: We're so happy your two-week long anniversary celebration was so wonderful, especially considering that you left another fabulous coastal community--your Mendocino County home--to vacation here! I enjoyed all the photos and experiences you shared with your friends on Facebook -- including making friends with a local woman with whom you're now corresponding with the help of an English-Spanish online translator! How cool!

ALEGRANZA was Grand!

  • 5 of 5

Alegranza was even more beautiful than we expected. The condo, the size of a house, was very clean. Also, it was both beautifully and tastefully decorated in bright & fun colors. This place was very spacious giving privacy to both couples. And the condo had everything we needed and more.

We enjoyed morning coffee & tea on the patio while taking in the view of the ocean.

The man in charge (his name escapes me) was most pleasant & helpful.

Another plus was the location. Nothing was far from this condo, beach, groceries. restaurants, shopping, etc. were all most convenient and it did not take long to find our way around.

On behalf of myself, my husband, our son and daughter-in-law, we were so very pleased and would not hesitate to highly recommend this vacation rental to other family and friends.

Our only regret-- that we could not stay longer.

Most Sincerely,

Patty Freeberg

Owner's Response: I know some people look at the photos and wonder about the magenta ultrasuede sofas . . . and it's nice to hear so many guests say they find Jazz Corner "beautifully and tastefully decorated in bright & fun colors." That was our goal, and Mexico seemed the perfect spot to enjoy that freedom. The "man in charge" Patty refers to is Miguel, our rental coordinator and concierge -- our local go-to-guy for help arranging fishing, dinner reservations, massages, whatever . . . coordinating check-in and check-outs, and taking care of anything guests might need such as refilling the propane tank for the grill, changing a lightbulb in the high ceilings, etc. All our guests have told us that he is a gem, and we're blessed to have him.

Beautiful condo - easy access to San Jose!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location - in just ten minutes, you are in the heart of San Jose with shopping, art, pubs and restaurants! A fantastic view of the mountains and Sea with beautiful art and furniture surrounding you! This is a fantastic place to call home for a week in cabo! A few small issues during our stay, but nothing to keep us from coming back again!

Jazz Corner is a fantastic condo within close proximity and/or walking distance of beaches, town center, grocery store, and many restaurants. The unit is well equipped. The unit was as advertised in every respect.

The Owners, owners private management team and Alegranza onsite staff do a great job of communicating and will do everything to help you have a wonderful vacation, (Chris, the owner, provides a vacation check list that can help even a very seasoned traveler). I am excited to return as soon as I can!!

Pleased visitors!

We echo all the nice things [our friends said]. Chris & Toby, you have the eyes of professional decorators. Your selection of colors took guts but the results are outstanding. Kudos!

Your written instructions and advice are so thorough, any time we had a question we just said "look it up in the book" and there was the answer. Gracias, Paul

Rather than echo all the previous raves -- with which I heartily agree -- I'm going to list a few of the "little things" I much appreciated such as -- great music selection & wonderful sound system, wonderful books, i.e. Tortilla Curtain, Black Livingstone, The Duke of Deceit. EVERYTHING is quality from the towels to the dinnerwear and cutlery to the outdoor furniture. We had a great time. Had 2 dinner parties. Great Vacation!! Good Fun!! XO Penny

Owner's Response: Thank you, Paul and Penny! It was so nice to have you and your Edmonton friends not only for the time you initially booked, but extended twice for a total stay of 17 days . . . so you really did have time to enjoy it all and even entertain others! We do hope you'll return one day! Just to clarify one note on the "suitability" characteristics you checked -- although some residents at Alegranza Resort have pets, Jazz Corner isn't a pet-friendly rental. Everything else you checked, we agree with wholeheartedly.

No better view.

  • 5 of 5

Just back from 2 weeks in San Jose, renting this incredible condo. The condo has spectacular views of the ocean from the front of the deck and the town on the left side of this wrap around deck. All of the amenities in here are first class. There isn't anything we needed that was not there. The master suite is huge and has all the bells and whistles. It is only a few blocks down to the Mega or Walmart for any groceries a person needed. The town is only a 10 minute walk to all the restaurants and shops.

Chris was very easy to deal with and answered all questions and emails promptly. Upon check in Miguel was a pleasure to deal with. I would not hesitate to rent this property again. We had a spectacular time here.

Owner's Response: I'm writing this response from Jazz Corner, where we arrived soon after this group left. We were delighted not only to read their review, but also to see our vacation home and furnishings again after many couples, families, and groups of friends have rented the property since our last stay. It's great to see that everything is still looking fresh and new, having been well cared for by our visitors as if they, too, felt that it was their own home away or romantic escape. With gratitude for the wonderful people who have chosen to stay here and have been such great guests, Chris & Toby
