Condo, Studio 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Downtown Cabo San Lucas on the Marina. This building is truly one of the best locations in Cabo. Fishing charters at your doorstep, several on site at Marina Cabo Plaza, check out the building website

Hacienda Beach also swimmable, is even closer and everything you need is in the condo, coolers, blanket, chairs, towels, umbrella bring a good book, drinks, a light snack and you are set.

About Carrie

This is a picture of our first Marlin brought in, what fun with only 2 of us on the boat and a 160 lb stripped Marlin fighting to shake the hook. It took a bit of time but we finally landed it, what an amazing day.

Carrie purchased this condo in 1994

Why Carrie chose Cabo San Lucas

We have been coming to Cabo since the early 80's and originally spent our time in a tent on the beach. In 1991 we started renting vacation property in this building and eventually we felt comfortable enough to invest in the town we love. Having spent time in Cabo during those early years means we grew up with the town from a small fishing village with very few stores and little or no English spoken to what we see today with Starbucks, Costco, Walmart and Home Depot. There are certainly times of nostalgia, but drive 30 miles up the coast and you run right back into the old Mexico we fell in love with. We have special friendships that have come from our time spent here and have seen these families grow from babies to beautiful adults, weddings and babies of there own. It's been a wonderful experience that we wouldn't trade for the world. We not only rent units in the building it is also our home.

What makes this condo unique

We have spent many days fishing the waters along the coast. We enjoy motoring out a little ways off shore and having a picnic lunch while fishing for anything that swims by. The water is clear enough to see turtles and other sea life going by underwater, as well as whales, dolphins and devil rays. The snorkeling at Chileno and Santa Maria Bays are some of the best, the water teaming with several different species of fish. Going after bill fish is easy with the charter companies within our building. We have also fished with the local fishing charters, the boats are good with very knowledgable captains and crew to help land that catch you've been dreaming of.

I could not even begin to tell you what an amazing experience we had at Carrie and Paul's studio condo at Marina Cabo Plaza. The communication between the owners, condo staff, and ourselves set the bar extremely high. Response times were fast and efficient. The owners truly want you to feel like this place is your home and supply the condo with everything you would need from cooking utensils, to beach items, and toiletries. She also provided us with links and information regarding activities that we had in mind to do while we were there and did not have to deal with the haggling of the locals. We also got stuck in a hurricane on our last day there and our flight was cancelled. Carrie allowed us to stay and did not ask for any funds as a result. We couldn't believe it! The location of this condo could not be beat as everything you could want to do is right outside of your door. My fiancé and I got engaged at Lover's beach and have already talked about having our wedding in Cabo, it is that beautiful of a place. I highly recommend this location and even more this specific unit.

Owner's Response: Congratulations on your engagement, Cabo is a great wedding destination. Thank you for taking care of yourselves and our unit during Hurricane Newton, we were very happy to hear you were both safe and sound and able to fly out the next morning. We appreciate your kind comments and hope to see you back for your wedding. Paul & Carrie

Perfect little place in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded all expectations! What a great little place to use as a base of operations in Downtown Cabo. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful, the bird cage in the lobby was a beautiful touch (every time you exit the house you're treated to singing birds), the room was clean and well equipped (nearly everything you could possibly need is stashed somewhere for you), the wifi was awesome (a rarity in Cabo we found ) and the bed was comfortable. I really can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect: the marina is literally just outside the door, there is a pharmacy and convenience store within steps, the mall is a 5 minute walk, downtown bars and restaurants are a 10 minute walk and the beach is a 10 minute walk also. We will definitely be back, thank you so much!!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in unit 106 for 10 days at the end of May 2016 and let me tell you this place far exceeded our expectations. This was a second time to Cabo and we did an all inclusive vacation the first time at the RIU (which was a long walk or taxi ride to town). SO the location of Marina Cabo Plaza is money. It's so close to the beach, to all the marina restaurants, and the downtown night life. We were able to walk every where. The room was stocked with anything you could possibly think of needing. Beach coolers, beach blankets/towels, chairs, umbrella, all kitchen appliances, bbq, cards, books... I could go on and on. I was amazed at everything that was available. We left our inflatable donut rings and hope someone gets to enjoy them as much as we did. We had such an amazing vacation. We have been recommending this place to everyone. Thanks again for providing such an awesome affordable place to stay. :)

A very safe and clean studio condo on the Marina and less than a 5 minute walk to Medena Beach.

  • 5 of 5

A very safe, clean and charming studio condo for two right on the marina. The office staff were also very pleasant and helpful. You can very easily access the many popular restaurants and activites on Medena Beach during the day and stroll the Marina after dinner in the evenings. My husband and I walked over to watch sunrise on the beach and then had breakfast at The Office.

Hosts Carrie and Paul were so very helpful and responsive to our questions. Carrie sent an email with a link to Los Cabos Guide and information on how to get discount vouchers. She also sent a link about shuttle services from the airport.

Thanks Carrie and Paul for a wonderful stay and helping me prepare for the trip ahead of time!

Perfect for exploring Cabo San Lucas

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week. We had the best vacation and would love to stay here again. This condo is perfect for couples interested in exploring Cabo San Lucas.

Location: Perfect! The condo is in the Marina Cabo Plaza building, which is in the hustle and bustle of the marina with vendors and shops. There are excellent restaurants adjacent to (if not in) the building. The shopping mall and Medano Beach are 5-minute walks. We walked everywhere, except to/from the airport and Lover's Beach. The sidewalks were decent, and roads without sidewalks had wide shoulders. The furthest we walked was Walmart (1.6 miles - took about 25 min) with empty bookbags to stock up on beer, coffee, creamer, wine, and suntan lotion and the beach in Pedregal (2.5 miles) to watch the sun set. We got a shuttle from the airport for $36USD ($18/person) with 5 other couples who were dropped off at resorts. It was cool to see the resorts, but it was a 60-min ride and we had to listen to the other people complain about literally everything. Going back to the airport, we paid for a private cab ($70USD), which was a 30-min ride. To get to Lover's Beach, we walked to Medano Beach and got a water taxi for 300 pesos ($20USD). We saw the arch before being dropped off and were picked up at the exact time we had requested.

Condo: Adorable! Basically a hotel room with a kitchenette. Great to have a full-size fridge and coffeemaker. There was climate control, and the ceiling fan above the bed was perfect. My favorite part was the balcony with table and chairs. We sat out there every morning drinking coffee, playing games, and planning our day. With the balcony door shut, the room was absolutely quiet, so we had no problem sleeping. Everything (including the whole plaza building) was incredibly clean.

Amenities: Everything we needed! Wi-fi signal was excellent. We were provided with bathing towels, beach towels, beach chairs, coolers, drinking water, soap, sample packs of shampoo/conditioner, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, dish detergent, cleaning supplies, coffee filters, and starter amounts of coffee and condiments.

Customer Service: Great! Carrie communicated with me via e-mail and said to let her know if we had any problems, but we didn't have a single problem throughout the trip. We are so grateful for the time and money well spent on this vacation. Thank you so much for providing such an amazing place to stay in Cabo San Lucas!
