Casa Mario is Perfectly Located for those that don’t want to drive. It’s just 300 yards to Medano Beach, 'THE' Beach in Cabo San Lucas. It's Cabo’s most popular swimming and sunning beach where you can enjoy water activities like jet skiing, para-sailing, glass bottom boats, and snorkeling. Plenty of excellent dining choices are available within a block (my 'must eats' are listed in the house binder). Casa Mario is just two blocks to Puerto Paraiso with its first class shopping and the Marina where the fishing boats are, and just three blocks from the World-Famous downtown nightlife of Cabo San Lucas.

Restaurant reviews written by me can be found at our other website, just Google Casa Mario Cabo.

About Tim Davidson

My name is Tim Davidson and I help run the house that our family purchased in 2004. Since then, we have been to Cabo at least 50 times and enjoyed every minute. We bought this house for the location and have been making improvements every year as needed and desired.

You won't need to spend a dime on taxi fair, as everything is within walking distance!

Tim Davidson purchased this house in 2004

Why Tim Davidson chose El Medano Ejidal

We started going to Cabo San Lucas years ago and were instantly hooked. After several years of going down there we started looking for something to buy, so we could justify going more often. We found this house, which was more than we wanted to spend, but couldn't resist because of the location.

What makes this house unique

There is no PRIVATE HOUSE/VILLA that you can rent that is closer to Medano Beach, the most popular beach in all of Cabo. It is very private and secure, with a ten foot stone wall around the perimeter and a solid steel door, giving the tenant absolute privacy.

A definite "do-over"

  • 5 of 5

We always prefer staying in homes vs. hotels, and Tim's location did not disappoint. The four of us had plenty of space. We like to cook meals when we travel and Tim's kitchen was well equipped with anything we needed. The beds are very comfortable, the linens clean, and the towels perfect for the beach. The location is also perfectly located - two blocks either way - to the beach or to downtown.

Tim was also easily accessible when we had questions and his dining recommendations were spot on. We did rent a car (very easy). We spent one day at Santa Maria Beach followed by the evening in San Jose del Cabo which is a great experience on Thursday nights during the Art Walk. We also drove over to Pedregal and watched the sun set at both Lovers and Divorce beaches....the Beverly Hills of Cabo.

Thank you Tim for letting us share your home. We had an amazing visit and would definitely do it again. While we didn't dine at The Italian Job, we did enjoy Ediths, Esquina (the bartenders were great), The Office (its an experience!), and a few other local joints. We also found a great churro vendor downtown on the other side of the marina!

We will be back.

Owner's Response: Amie, Glad you found the place comfortable and convenient...we love it for the same reasons. I hope you do indeed come back and stay with us again, especially since you still need to check that Italian Job box on your "to do" list. Thanks for taking the time to review us too. Sincerely, Tim

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! Tim was very responsive before our trip and even set us up with a driver at lower price than those we found online. The house had plenty of room to fit all 6 of us comfortably and could probably fit up to 10 people. The location was great, you can't beat it! It's situated right between Medano Beach and Downtown. We did not need to rent a car or take any taxis, we just walked everywhere. There are good restaurants nearby and an Oxxo (their 7/11) 2 blocks away. The pool was great and refreshing after a long day of walking around town. Only one bad thing was a sewage smell in one of the rooms that came and went. It leaked in from the street every now and then. Other than that the house was amazing and we would definitely stay here again if we're ever back in Cabo!

Owner's Response: Duy, thank you for taking the time to write the review. I know what you are talking about, the front room does pick up some mild wiffyness every now and then. I hate to say that it's part of Mexico, but sometimes it is. Glad everything else was good for your trip.

Location, Location, Location..........Ideal! The close proximity to the beach, downtown and the marina make this compound the bullseye in Cabo. Its great to have a house within walking distance from all areas of interest to conveniently retreat to for some peace and quiet while on vacation. We truly enjoyed our stay and all Tim's recommendations were spot on.

Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect. We had 9 people stay over 4 days and had a great time here. The house is extremely close to downtown and the beach, is nice and spacious and extremely well-stocked. Tim, the owner, is extremely fast in responding and great to work with. The maid is very professional and it's great to have her come by to tidy up. On Tim's suggestion, we asked his contact Jorge to pick us up from the airport and he was extremely helpful in essentially helping us coordinate our entire vacation. He helped us book boat rides, snorkeling trips, jet-ski rentals, a trip to La Paz and Todos Santos and even told us about amazing hole-in-the-wall places for food. Jorge and his colleague, Rael really helped make our vacation absolutely amazing.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Had six family members stay for a week at the Casa de Mario. It can be a struggle when looking for places to stay at a destination that one has never been. After looking at probably a hundred listings on Homeaway, I emailed Tim (the owner). He was very fast in his response and very informative. I wanted a house that was CLOSE to the beach, the marina, restaurants and shopping. I did not want to call a cab every time I wanted to venture out. Now, you can stay at the ME or one of the other hotels or timeshares and be close to the action, but you WILL NOT find another house like Casa de Mario. It will sleep a large group, it is extremely safe and private, and it has an awesome pool. Its a five minute walk to Medano Beach, 185 feet from Roasted and about 200 feet to Peacocks. Bar Esquina is about a 2-3 minute walk. Its an 11 minute walk to the Marina, the Mall and lots of bars and restaurants in that area. We actually arrived just a couple of days after Hurricane Newton. I was impressed that the neighborhood and Cabo in general looked great. The house had some minor issues like gas hot water heater had blown out, the satellite dish had got moved some and reception was spotty. Nothing big. The only reason I even mention it is because if you have a problem, Tim will take care of Also wanted to mention that in September, the fishing is muy caliente, and so is the weather. But Casa de Mario has A/C units in all of the bedrooms and large A/C units in the living areas downstairs. The kitchen is also very nice. Fully equipped and modern. The water is filtered and there is a separate water cooler. Tim recommended the Mucho Loco boats for fishing and they did not disappoint. We fished twice with them and brought back some nice tuna, wahoo and dorado to prepare in our kitchen. There are hundreds of placed to eat and drink, but my crowd really enjoyed Bar Esquina and La Dolce. The Italian Job was closed but the food at La Dolce was fantastic. Monkey Business bar had the best margaritas. Also the Cabo Bakery had a really good breakfast. Not just baked goods, they had a full breakfast menu. Food was fast and fresh and steps from the house. There is also a warehouse club (think of costco) about a 5 min walk from the house, for about $1.50 you can get a day pass. They have loads of stuff. Hope to stay at the Casa de Mario again soon, just a fabulous location.

Owner's Response: Paul--well said. I really couldn't write a better review myself. For all of the reasons you mentioned I prefer to stay here rather than at our house in the Pedregal. Well said Paul. Thank you, and hope to have you back again. The Italian Job opened back up last night, and we were there!
