About Mike and Lori
We are native Southern Californians and although we love where we live, we've always dreamed of having a home right on the ocean, and have worked hard to make our dream a reality. Mike works in the health care field and Lori works in the airlines industry. Both careers afford ample flexibility and we enjoy our condo as much as we can. Our hobbies include travel, tennis, surfing, diving, to name a few. We have found a place where we can enjoy all the things we love in surroundings that take our breath away!
Mike and Lori purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Mike and Lori chose San José del Cabo
We have traveled all over Mexico and before we bought our condo, we stayed at La Jolla de los Cabos several times. We absolutely fell in love with it's beauty, tranquility and location on the beach. The first time we walked into our condo and saw the gorgeous ocean spread out before us, we were hooked. It has everything we were looking for and the location of the condo cannot be beat. San Jose offers us a short 2 hr flight and is close to everything we could want, including a quaint downtown area, gourmet restaurants, shopping, and activities. We have found our paradise, and love sharing it with our family and friends.
What makes this Condo unique
There are very few condos on the long stretch of Costa Azul beach that are actually beachfront the same way ours is. Although many complexes are oceanfront, the units are set back, around a pool. Our condo is facing the ocean, about 5 feet from the sand. It just doesn't get much better than that!

La Jolla Joy on the Beach
Extremely clean and convenient accommodations with a beautiful view of the ocean and direct access to the beach. Mornings were spent watching the sunrise outside on the porch. Kitchen is well appointed for those that like to have some meals at home. Super markets are nearby as well as many restaurants. We do rent a car, but you could manage without one if you had to, buses run all day long. Thank you Mike and Lori, for sharing your vacation home with our family. We had a lovely stay in Cabo!
Thank you again for staying with us Susan and for taking the time to leave a great review, including lots of helpful info! We know you love La Jolla and hope that we will be lucky enough to have you stay with us again in the future. Muchas gracias, Mike and Lori
Perfect Easter Break
The condo was better than advertised and perfect for our small family. We were impressed by the pictures and blown away by the reality. It was well stocked with all the essentials as noted and the beach chairs and beach toys for our 4 year old made the trip more enjoyable. It's close to everything you need and easy to find as well.
We were able to check the waves from the yard and watch the sunrise each morning. The pools were perfect at the end of the day after the beach. We'd stay again if the we get the chance.
Lori was easy to communicate with and responded within hours so we had no trouble at all on our trip. Thanks!
We were so pleased that you chose our condo to stay for your family vacation over Easter break. Thank you for leaving us a wonderful review, and we are very happy to know that you and your family enjoyed your stay, and no doubt a visit from the Easter Bunny! Hopefully, we will have the pleasure of you staying with us again in the future. Thank you so much again, Mike and Lori
Great location. Nice and quiet.
Loved being right on the beach but away from the noisy hotels.
Thanks so much Brett! We appreciate you staying with us, and are so happy to hear it was a great experience. Hope to have you back another time. Sincerely, Mike and Lori
This place is incredible. Spectacular Oceanview and all the comforts of home.
You were a pleasure to work with and Thank You for your kind words, they sum it all up!! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to having you stay with us again! Muchas Gracias, Mike and Lori
Clean & Quiet, Handy Location, Friendly Staff, Beautiful Sunrises
This condo unit is about location-directly on the beach but secluded, no highway noise, easy walk to several restaurants. All the furnishings, appliances, kitchen utensils were as listed in the amenities and as shown in photos. WiFi & TV reception was excellent. The entire condo and the La Jolla complex pool areas, beach, grounds & parking were all well maintained. One of the cleanest condos we've stayed at. The complex provides bins to recycle glass & cans. The security crew was friendly, always doing their rounds regularly walking around the grounds, parking lots and along the sea wall day & night. I found Lori very friendly and reliable to work with; quick to respond to any questions we had before as well as during our stay.
A few minor FYI items: Each bathroom has it's own small water heater. If the 1st person to shower is rather un-frugal with the hot water, the 2nd bather may take a lukewarm shower. No in-room safe is provided. We did manage to let a few mosquitoes in. (Think mostly via the front door where it was shady with plants/bushes near-by where they love to hang out) So don't lolly-gag with the door wide open when you go in and out. Costa Azul is a very wide, clean sandy beach; no seaweed but the under tow can be dangerous.
Misc Non-La Jolla Info-We didn't rent a car. Used an airport transport service that would stop at a major grocery to stock up on way to condo. There is a OXXO (mini grocery w/very limited canned-goods, bread, milk, fruit, veggies, soda/pop, etc and Trader Dicks (mostly cerveza, wine & liquor) within a 2 block walk. Also 2 pharmacies where you can purchase OTC and prescription medications. Walkable restaurants - Momma Mia's just left down the beach; Cantina Sardina, Dominos(the pizza-chain) & La Salsa to the right along highway.
Bus transportation-cost 12.50 pesos (you can pay with $1 US but no change given). The big orancge & purple buses only travel along the highway. Collectivos (re-purposed school buses) also travel on the side streets. To get to SJdC downtown sites - restaurants, shoppes, and the Thurs Art Walk we walked to the Hyatt Place hotel & boarded one of the collectivos that park next door.
Taxis-use flat/zone rates; $10 to/from La Jolla to downtown. The Krystal resort has a large palapa entrance next door to the La Jolla HOA office. The Krystal security will call a taxi for you. There's also several tour rep desks who will book any Cabo area site-seeing, fishing or sport outings for you
Wow! Thank you so much for such a wonderfully detailed review. We sure do appreciate the time you took to include so much valuable information. There is no doubt yours will be extremely helpful to future potential guests. We loved having you, and are very pleased to hear that you had a great stay at the condo. We hope to have you back in the future. Oh, and we agree......Sardina Cantina has THE very best tortilla soup... our favorite! Thanks so much, Mike and Lori
The condo was exactly as described - perfectly lovely, just like the pictures.
Great location - the property contained everything one could need for a comfortable, restful vacation. Perfect for sunrises, listening to the waves, and seeing the rising moon. The owners respond very quickly to any questions and provided very thorough, informative details about the condo and the area. The whole La Jolla property was delightful, extremely well maintained. If you don't have a car, taxis and Uber were readily available. Like someone said "No Bad Days!"
Thank you very much Veronica for your kind words and wonderful review. You were such a pleasure corresponding with and you are welcome back any time. You took such great care of our home and we appreciate it very much. It means a lot to us knowing that we met your expectations, making your stay a positive and memorable experience. Muchas gracias, Mike and Lori
San Jose is a quaint town, with a downtown area that boasts many restaurants, where you can choose from a fine dining experience to more casual fare. You can stroll the streets and shop the many varied shops and explore the art district. If you love the water, Costa Azul beach is a spectacular stretch of white sand beach where you can enjoy the sun, horseback ride, and swim in the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez. A 10 minute walk from our condo will put you at Zippers, an world famous surf spot. Also for avid surfers, there are many other surf spots in the area, drivable in either direction of San Jose. Snorkelers and divers can enjoy crystal clear waters in two different spots located close to San Jose. In about 25 minutes you can be downtown Cabo San Lucas life is much more fast-paced and you can visit the famous Los Arcos and Lovers Beach.
