It is a perfect haven for a relaxing, stress-free vacation filled with sunny days, gorgeous sunsets and beautiful evenings....just spectacular!

Beautiful accommodations, friendly staff, so relaxing, wonderful vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better vacation!!

The condo was beautifully decorated, fully stocked with everything we needed, and in a great location - grocery store, some restaurants & car rental within walking distance. The work out facilities were also very nice. The biggest surprise was the wonderful semi private pool - although listed in VRBO description we didn't understand just how private it was until we got there. We split our time between the main pool and the semi private pool.

We came to Cabo for relaxation, but night life and restaurants aren't too far away if you are looking for that. We took a couple day trips to some beaches: Cabo San Lucas and Santa Maria and had a wonderful time there too.

We were there in May 2017 and the weather was perfect and not crowded at all. I would definitely come back to this condo again! HIGHLY RECCOMMEND!!!

Thank you!!

Owner's Response: J--we are SO HAPPY that you had such a great time! Exactly what we love to hear from our renters. Yes, the pool is almost totally private, isn't it? Very happy that you had a very relaxing vacation in beautiful Baja. We are very excited to hear that you want to return. It was a pleasure working with you and we would love to have you back. In the meantime, take good care and Happy Summer! -Meredith and Gary

Paradise in warm sunny Cabo San Jose.

  • 4 of 5

My husband & I stayed for the month of Feb.2018. The pictures on the website are exactly as in the condo. The condo was clean, ample towels & bedding , well equipped kitchen. Comfortable outdoor furniture on the patio overlooking a small quiet pool. Las Maninitas is a beautiful property ,with well groomed outdoor spaces. Close to grocery shopping,restaurants,public transportation, & bike path. Steps to the beach,pools & hot tub. Meredith provides prompt customer service , it is a pleasure doing business with her. We attended the Wirikuta dinner & show which I highly recommend. We also enjoyed a day trip to Todos Santos. Our favorite restaurants were Cynthia's, Sardina's Cantina & Valentina's . I would highly recommend this condo if you want to relax and enjoy the sunshine & beautiful surroundings. We are looking forward to returning next year.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was wonderful--it is clean, comfortable and close to everything. It has a view of the water and a small pool right in front of it.

The staff at the Las Mananitas were friendly and the grounds were well tended. There are several pool areas to choose from, including one with a wide open view of the ocean.

We liked the info notebook with suggestions for restaurants and activities. A large grocery store is right across the street and walking to downtown is easy. I liked this location as it is oceanfront but a little away from the main hotel zone.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

Simply superb! This condo at Las Mananitas has it all. The location is terrific. It faces the ocean. The semi-private pool feels private. The grounds are meticulously landscaped. Inside, the condo has everything you need -- many plush bath towels, plenty of beach/pool towels, a hair dryer, lots of kitchen gadgets, 2 televisions, washer/dryer. There are several spots to dine -- inside at the breakfast bar, at the dining room table, on the patio, or by the pool. We only had breakfast and cocktails there, but easily could have cooked meals. The place was immaculate when we arrived.

There's plenty of free parking just outside the condo's front door. The pool areas are lovely, and we never had trouble finding chaise lounges with umbrellas.

A huge grocery store ("La Comer") is across the street, and sells everything from fresh pastries (huge, flaky croissants for 50 cents each) to wine (big selection) to bicycles and clothing. It's an easy walk to many restaurants and shops.

Dealing with Meredith was a breeze. She responded promptly to every email. Her listing accurately reflects what you'll see when you arrive to her condo at Las Mananitas.

Among the restaurants nearby, we especially liked Cynthia's for its organic and fresh cuisine. The wrapped fish was delicious. They have a pizza special on Saturday nights. We didn't try it, but saw others enjoying it (comes with a bottle of wine). Also found the NY Deli (run by a Canadian) to have good sandwiches.

The beach is not supposed to be swimmable, but we saw a few people plying the waters. We dipped our feet in, but mostly walked the sand. We did visit Chileno Beach (a drive of about 10 km) which was more crowded. Also took a drive to Cabo Pulmo (2 hours) to snorkel the newly restored reef there (terrific excursion if you can stomach the last 10 miles of rocky, dirt road).

Yes, of course, we highly recommend this condo. In all, it was perfect save one thing. We wish we'd stayed longer.

Owner's Response: Kathleen--THANK YOU for the kind words...we are THRILLED that you had such a great time. I am sorry the beach was 'black flagged' for a few days when you were there--sometimes that happens, but there Sea of Cortez is always 'swim-able' at this time of year unless there is some bad weather brewing. Anyway, please come back! It was a pleasure working with you and we are so happy that you ha such a great time! In the meantime, we wish you and your family all the very best, Meredith and Gary

Fantastic Facilities at Las Mananitas!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Las Mananitas condo complex about 12 years ago and were so happy to see that the property is still meticulously maintained. We will definitely return to enjoy the beach front location and the excellent facilities. The pools and grounds are immaculate! I used the on-site gym daily, which is large and modern. The property feels like a 4+ Star resort but without a large attentive staff to serve us poolside food and drinks or clean our unit. The property staff was always present but unobtrusive.

Meredith's condo was clean and comfortable. Everything was accurately described and Meredith was available and responsive via email. Check in is 4pm and check out at 11am. We enjoyed having great natural light in the rear of the unit and despite being on the ground floor, we felt the unit was private. The bed was comfortable, the condo had plenty of towels (indoor and outdoor use), the kitchen was well-equipped for cooking, and the wifi was great. Dish soap for sink and dishwasher and plenty of kitchen towels were provided but no other cleaning supplies. Toiletries are not provided, we purchased soap for kitchen and bath at the Mega and I brought laundry detergent from home. I also recommend bringing a clothespin to keep the bedroom curtains closed if you are light-sensitive. We would definitely return to the property and Meredith's condo!

Owner's Response: HI Bianca--THANK YOU for the nice review and kind words...we are SO HAPPY that you both had such a great time. Just to clarify for other guests: there is a 'starter kit' (of toilet paper, soap, shampoo, etc) that is in the bathroom upon arrival. I just want renters to know that they don't have to immediately run to the grocery store, even though it is right across the street! ; - ) We really enjoyed working with you and having you stay and we hope you return to beautiful Las Mananitas! Thank you again, Meredith and Gary
