About The Owner

We are Bill and Nonie Newman. We live in Kansas City and have two twenty-something aged children, Joe and Mary.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose San Jose del Cabo

We fell in love with San Jose del Cabo the first time we visited! We really fell in love with El Zalate the second time we visited and decided, with the gentle coaxing of our children, to buy a unit in the new Villa four! We are so happy we did!

What makes this condo unique

We love to cook! Our kitchen is outfitted for a gourmet cook, though you don't have to be! You'll appreciate the equipment we provide.

We provide top of the line linens and beds!

There is a propane gas grill on our very large terrace overlooking the pools and the beach.

We provide portable beach chairs and thirsty beach towels!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am having a great time hear in Mexico. The swimming pool is warm, there's a lot of them and it's great to play in. The apartment is great because it gives you all of the stuff, it has a flat screen TV that has a DVD player, it has cozy beds, every room has a porch and they give us all the cooking supplies. It even has a place where I can play my ipod out loud!And all the people hear are nise. The vue of the oshen is grate. It is very beutiful when the sun comes up here, and it isn't so beutiful when it comes up in Los angiles.

Beautiful property above and beyond happy with our stay and would definitely come back again!

  • 5 of 5

El Zalate is my favorite property to stay at when visiting San Jose. This unit was by far my favorite. It was nicely appointed with everything you would need on your trip (including all beach chairs, toys and towels), right down to the citrus press for margaritas!!

The patio was so beautiful and quiet with a perfect view of the ocean. The beds in both bedrooms were extremely comfortable and the shower in the master bathroom! I wish I could take that water pressure home with me!!

It is close to everything and within walking distance to the Mega grocery store that is huge and clean. Everyone is so friendly here and the restaurants are all delicious!

Bill and Nonie make you feel right at home with their welcome book of favorite restaurants and things to do and see. I would definitely stay in this unit again and recommend it to anyone going to San Jose.

There may be newer units to stay in in San Jose but El Zalate takes pride in their property and is constantly maintaining it and keeping it lush and beautiful. IF you want to stay somewhere with a lot of action, this is not the place for you. If you want a place that you can thoroughly relax and know you are surrounded by friendly neighbors and you are safe, I would suggest El Zalate!!

Kids are not welcome!

  • 2 of 5

We've stayed in El Zalate about 5 times, and won't be going back. The other "owners" are very intolerant of renters and particularly kids making noise in the pool. Think of it as vacationing in a retirement home or with a group of "the grumpy old person who lives on your street" - they don't like change, are into everyone else's business, and like to sit around and gossip all day. I don't want to paint all the "owners" with the same brush, as there are a few who are quite pleasant and friendly (probably because they only visit and don't live there long term) but they are in the minority. Irony of course is the owners could change the condo bylaws to prevent rentals or restrict to adults only, but I guess then most of them couldn't afford to remain owners.

The owners of our unit were helpful and the condo was clean and well maintained - very small TVs and BBQ though. El Zalate was built in 2001 so its getting dated and there have been little renos done, the rooms are still adequate but there are a lot of nicer, newer places now at the same price point. If you like to work out on your vacation, this would also not be the place for you. The "gym" looks like it was transplanted from a 1970's hotel - "universal" machine with some old dumbbells and a mat in a small smelly room tucked under an office in the parking lot. Treadmill has never worked any time I've been there.

Try Las Mananitas nearer the Mega - some friends were staying there at the same time and it is awesome. Newly built indoor/outdoor gym, tennis courts, better location and rooms were much larger and newly renovated.

Fan!tastic

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condominium and wonderful place to stay. The owners have included everything you could possibly need for your vacation from beach chairs to the wonderfully sharp knives (to cut those limes!) I would absolutely stay there again. The outdoor furniture on the lanai is especially comfortable and convenient for a group of people to enjoy the out of doors. love it all!

Loved El Zalate

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this condo twice. Both with a group of girl friends. This property would also be perfect for two couples or a family. The unit has a huge balcony that overlooks the pools and ocean. All rooms have sliding doors that open up to this wonderful balcony. The condo has all the luxuries of home. The fully stocked kitchen was used often and the washer/dyer was nice to have. We used the folding beach chairs everyday on the beach. I really liked staying here as it is in a very central location. A huge grocery store is very close as are many restaurants. The locals is this area are very nice. The owners are very accommodating to your needs and easy to work with. I highly recommend this unit.
