About Arthur and Nancy

We live in Whitehorse, Yukon in Canada. We have lived in the north for 41 years and raised our family here. We love the north but also love getting away to our lovely condo in San Jose del Cabo, BCS, Mexico, where it is always warm and sunny!

Arthur and Nancy purchased this condo in 1999

Why Arthur and Nancy chose San Jose del Cabo

We fell in love with the San Jose area while on vacation during Christmas of 1998, and decided we wanted to own a vacation property there. After looking at all our options, we chose El Zalate, which was just being built at the time. We chose it for the spectacular beachfront location, the views, the small size of the development and the quality of the construction.

What makes this condo unique

Unlike time-shares and hotels, each of the 70 units are independently owned and therefore every unit is different and reflects the tastes and style of the owner. El Zalate has a good number of year round owner occupants, which helps to create a real sense of community, unlike traditional resorts.

Quiet location, perfect for a couple, or adult friends

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience with this property. We were there the first week of May, and the complex and beach were nearly deserted. The pools were fantastic. This is not a swimming beach, but Zippers is a short walk, and you can swim in the ocean there.

We have been staying nearby for years, at a resort. This was a great alternative to the hustle and blaring music of resorts in Cabo and San Jose.

The only issue I had was with the master bed. It needs a new mattress. There is no TV in the master, either. Not a bad thing, but if you are used to having one in the bedroom, it's different. The home is comfortable, and inviting, not fancy, but homey and everything is provided. There is 24 hour Security, and Cesare is wonderful. I highly recommend this unit at El Zalate. The owners were wonderful to work with. We will be back to this lovely spot.

Owner's Response: Hi Dawn, Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your holiday at our El Zalate condo. Although we enjoy s firm mattress, we will examine it on our next visit and consider replacing it, based on your input. Regarding swimming: the Plsya Costa Azul is a good swimming beach from late November until early April, when the prevailing winds allow, but not later in the year.

The Mitchell's condo El Zalate

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at El Zalate. The location is great to walk to the Mega and many amazingly inexpensive restaurants. The cable in the condo is awesome. We are huge college basketball fans and we are always on vacation during the Final 4. We are able to watch both days of games.

There is a book in the unit to help with everything from food, golf, unit rules, who to call for help, emergency, etc.

The condo is great for 2 couples. We each have our own bedrooms and bathrooms. We ate outside on the patio. the kitchen has everything you need. We made many meals in the unit. A nice full size kitchen to serve our needs. Beds were comfortable. good pillows to choose from. Each room has a ceiling fan.

The patio is our favorite place to hang out and visit. being on the 4th floor the breeze allows you to keep doors open and be comfortable.

Arthur was very helpful in answering all my questions. We added 2 extra days last minute and he was super easy to work with.

We are planning to return again.

A perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our two week holiday in El Zalate was as close to perfect as possible. Arthur and Nancy were wonderful hosts. Always quick to reply to questions and happy to offer suggestions about the condo and surrounding area. The staff were extremely friendly, smiling and always ensured that we had directions or suggestions of places to visit.

The condo itself was clean and very well stocked. Not a detail missed which made us feel very much at home. The condo is very spacious, close to the pool, beach and shopping amenities, as well as the bus stops and a few great restaurants. We walked to Mega with our two small children regularly and enjoyed many gorgeous sunrises from the beach out front. The pool is perfect for young children, clean and felt very safe. The grounds were always well manicured. We were very sad to leave this incredible vacation spot. We will cherish many special memories and hope to have the opportunity to return again...soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jessa for the lovely review! We are so glad you had such a wonderful family vacation at our El ZALATE home. We very much appreciated how forthright you were in informing us of the accidental damage to a piece of furniture, and your being understanding of the small repair cost involved. It was a pleasure hosting you, and we look forward to doing so again.

6 Weeks Post Odile

  • 5 of 5

After Hurricane Odile we were scrambling to find a location for our trip scheduled not quite 6 weeks later since our timeshare was damaged. The owner very graciously answered all of our questions and assured us the condo sustained no damage. We found the property to be as described - everything was in good shape. The condo was clean and comfortable. The El Zalate property was continuing some repair (cosmetic) but it appeared to be nearly done by the end of our week there. The internet/telephone went off every evening but that appeared to be an issue with TelMex, which was out of the owner's control. We were told TelMex was installing new fiber optic cable. The satellite TV was also in the process of being repaired that week, so hopefully that is now back in service. Cabo (both San Jose and san Lucas) was cleaned up (if you've seen the pictures it was a huge job) and most restaurants were open. There are still some buildings throughout the area that are damaged, but all in all it was a very successful trip. In summary the condo was great, the location was beautiful and conveniently located. We would return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 5 star review. We really appreciate your understanding the issues in getting everything back to normal after Hurricane Odile. The Internet issues were definitely out of our control, as Telmex is replacing damaged phone lines with new fiber optic cable, and when they are working, the Internet sometimes goes down. We are proud of how our wonderful management and staff cleaned up the grounds from all the wind, sand and water damage so quickly, and restored electrical and water service sooner than most properties. We hope to have our TV service back shortly - the satellite dishes have been replaced on the roof, and we are working with our satellite service provider to determine if we need to replace our receivers or just restore the connection. We appreciate your understanding, and look forward to hosting you again soon!

Trip to Cabo

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect week staying at El Zalate. The condo was clean and comfortable and exactly as advertised. The owners left such nice notes (restaurants, etc) and was VERY helpful as we planned our trip to Cabo. We would definitely stay in this unit again and would certainly recommend it to friends. Thank you for helping us enjoy our vacation- it couldn't have been more perfect!
