About Meredith Savadove

We love to travel and see the world. When we went to Los Cabos many years ago, we fell in love with it. Consistently beautiful sunny days and pleasant evenings along with great water sports, relaxation and incredible food are all things we love. Mexico is a beautiful place for a wonderful vacation and we are happy to share our home with you!

Meredith Savadove purchased this condo in 2001

Why Meredith Savadove chose San Jose del Cabo

Las Mananitas is the most beautiful, premier, luxury properties in San Jose del Cabo and we wanted a comfortable little place there to enjoy the beautiful Mexican sunshine, beaches and people. Our unit is perfect! The living is so easy, all on one level...private pool right out our back door and the miles of beautiful, powdery, white sand beach and Sea of Cortez is steps away. The property is incredibly well-maintained and we love every minute we spend there! We can easily get into Cabo San Lucas if we want night life, and the restaurants walking distance from our place are fantastic. The location is absolutely ideal. It is a perfect haven for a relaxing, stress-free vacation filled with sunny days, gorgeous sunsets and beautiful evenings....just spectacular!

What makes this condo unique

Very close to the quaint little town of San Jose del Cabo, yet very easy access to Cabo San Lucas as well. Semi-private 10 steps from back door and right on the beautiful white sand beach. Walking distance from great grocery store and excellent restaurants. Perfect location with full compliment of ammenities to make your vacation the perfect one!

Great spot to relax and enjoy the sun. Close to everything you need while vacationing in Del CABO

  • 5 of 5

The property is well kept and has everything one needs. If we had anything to improve upon, it would be the quality of the bedding and the pillows. All ready for an update. Also, the blender is not very good and well, when making Margaritas, one needs a high quality blender. Otherwise, a clean well kept unit in a nice complex and well located. The owners are very good at communication and ensuring you have what you need to have an enjoyable trip.

Owner's Response: Hi Marv--thank you so much for your note and we are glad you had a great time. Just so you know, we have purchased some new bedding so that has been resolved. And, the blender had something stuck in it, preventing it from working at high speed. Also resolved. Thank you again for the review--we appreciate it very much and are so happy that you had such a great time. I was very happy to read you email that you want to return--we would love to have you back any time! All the best, Meredith and Gary

Beautiful Accommodations! Peaceful & Quiet.

  • 5 of 5

I easily rate this condo a 5 stars except for 2 points, I will get to those as they are not critical to the assessment but should be mentioned. The most important points that I considered when I booked this condo include how nice and clean the place is (CHECK!) How beautiful the surroundings (CHECK!) How convenient it is to get where I need to go (CHECK!) The kitchen is a nice size with all the basic pots/pans & utensils, microwave, blender, toaster and coffee maker. The fridge does have an ice maker, which comes in handy. Amazing view of the sunrise each morning, your own 'private' pool & gardens and a great snippet of the ocean, which is awesome. You are really only a 10 minute walk to a large grocery store and easy access to the highway. You DO NOT hear any traffic from the highway from this condo at all. Parking is free and very close to the condo. Nice sized living area, dining indoors and outdoors.

I always ready ALL the reviews before renting or booking a condo. What I read was that the pull out couch was okay and comfortable. The condo owner when I rented the condo did not realize I would be sleeping on it as my sleep patterns are terrible and I may get 3-4 hours a night sleep. I don't like to keep my companions awake through the nights as I sleep, read, sleep, and work. You are unable to use the pull out even for a child as I don't think it is safe. I am not a large person, I weigh 140 #'s so it is not my size, in case you are wondering.

For the last few years I have been visiting other parts of Mexico staying in condos that provide everything you pretty much need for the beach. The only other point I have is that this place does not provide anything for the beach. Not an umbrella, cooler, icepacks or chairs. If you spend any time at the beach like I do you pretty much then have to either rent the umbrella and chair or invest in your own. These were questions I DID ask before coming and was told no the place does not have the supplies. I knew that in advance . . . but booked anyway because it was beautiful (and still is!) So this is not a complaint just a consideration for the condo owner and next visitor.

I would highly recommend this condo and still rate it a 5. My parents are picky people and I would even suggest this place to them and that says something!

Thank you Meridith for allowing me to stay in your home. And responding so quickly to my emails. Both are very much appreciated.

Highest Regards,

Owner's Response: T-We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our condo and we very much appreciate your feedback. It is both very useful for us, as well as for future potential renters. That said, we are very sorry to hear that the pull out sofa was not as you expected. We always advise potential renters that it is suitable only for very young children, but not sufficiently comfortable for adults or older children since it is full size, not queen. Since you stated that you had only two people coming, I didn't realize you would need the pull out sofa. Had I known you were bringing more people with you, I would have informed you that the pull out sofa is not comfortable for adults due to the size, but for small children only. In addition, it is COMPLETELY SAFE for both adults or children -- we absolutely would not allow it to be used if it were not 100% safe. We have had many renters use it for little children and they have been very satisfied. With regard to your feedback concerning beach chairs, cooler, umbrella -- thank you for pointing that out. As you mention, we did discuss and clarify that those items are not included with the condo prior to you making your rental decision. We have periodically contacted several rental agents in the area to ascertain what supplies are typical and should be included. These items are not considered typical in the Cabo area, so we have elected not to provide them. But, we attempt to be very clear in our write up and description about what is and is not included, so that there are no surprises and potential clients can make informed decisions based upon their needs. Again, we are delighted to hear that you had such a wonderful time in our condo and Cabo and very much appreciate your feedback. We wish you and your family all the very best... Thank you! -Meredith

We had an excellent stay at the condo! The location is beautiful oceanfront, yet convenient walking distance to everything you could need! Great restaurants, downtown, and the bus route that takes you to Cabo San Lucas, which we did 2 of our 4 days... the complex is safe, grounds are beautiful and staff are friendly and helpful! Enjoyed the hot tub every evening and made many friends also staying at Las Mananitis! We will certainly return and will be hoping to rent Meredith's condo for our future visit!

Paradise in Mexico

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed for the month of Feb.2017, We found the condo to be very comfortable. The location is perfect, close to the grocery store, buses and steps from the beach. The condo is well equipped with ample bed linens as well as bath towels and beach towels. There is a great pool area with lots of pool furniture. We will definitely return.
