Our whole family (7 adults + baby) had a great time during our week at this house. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and deck so much that we were content staying at the house. Be careful if you go in the water at the beach. We're all good swimmers, but the currents were unpredictable and we didn't feel safe in the water. The dishwasher was broken when we arrived and was never fixed the whole week we were there--the repairman had a sick child, so we washed a lot of dishes! We enjoyed the town of Cabo San Jose and found it very easy to buy groceries. The property manager Marty led us to the restaurant Zippers right on the beach and we ate there a 2nd time. Other than short local trips, we mainly enjoyed hanging out together at the house.

Just Okay

  • 2 of 5

We stayed at Casa de Helios for a week in Sept 2016. The house was not in rental condition when we arrived. There were missing lights and a broken ceiling fan outside. Garbage disposal, dishwasher, oven hood and refrigerator were not working, pool an hot tub lights were not working, multiple leaking toilets and shower drains clogged. Overall the house needs some updating.

If you rent a car, make sure and have decent ground clearance. We had a Jetta and we bottomed out pulling in/out of the driveway.

The location was perfect for us, close to the Mega store and a 20-25 minute car ride to downtown Cabo. The house manager Marty and the neighborhood security guards were great.

We loved Cabo, but will look to stay somewhere else on our next trip.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that your experience at our home was less than perfect. Yes, due to hurricane Newton from couple of weeks back prior to your arrival there were some damages on the outside of the house. This included some broken light shades and one ceiling fan in the Palapa. These items were on order and could not be replaced before your arrival. We have not heard about anything else not functioning perfectly, such as garbage disposal, oven hood and refrigerator from any previous guest or from the property manager. We wish you had mentioned the problems to the property manager who was in touch with you regularly to ensure your stay was comfortable. He would have helped you figure out if the correct switches were being used. There is a user manual for everything in the house. Shower drains do get clogged sometimes if guests enter bathroom showers without washing off the sand from the beach. We heard from the property manager that this happened on the last day. Also on your departure, our property manager rechecked everything and found all to be working in perfect condition. As you can see from all the past reviews. all our guests have loved the house, its amenities, the ocean view and accessibility and the convenience of the location. We are sure, had you contacted the property manager with your problems they would have been resolved immediately.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Casa de Helios from March 12th - 19th 2016. In the months leading up to our visit property owner Partha and property manager Marty were fantastic. They made sure all our questions were answered, provided directions from the airport and helpful information regarding the area to make our trip enjoyable. Marty was at the house waiting when we arrived and provided more local knowledge and contact information if we needed anything.

The home is a paradise. We had 5 adults and 2 kids and there was more than enough room for others if needed. All the amenities were in good working order. Wifi was reliable. The home was well cared for and the property including the entire neighborhood was kept in great shape and secure. We enjoyed the sunrise and whale spotting from the deck/pool. We walked (10min with kids) down to the beach and were able to stroll in the sand until everyone was tired. Swimming was great but watch the waves with smaller kids. The nights were pleasant with lots of stars and big skies to enjoy.

We were very close to all groceries and shopping required. We spent a couple days in San Jose del Cabo. The drive to Cabo San Lucas was easy and we took a day trip to Todos Santos on the Pacific side. Make sure to try and surf in the waves. Well worth it and only about an hours drive.

Overall our time at Casa del Helios was fantastic. When we did leave the house we found many amazing adventures to partake in.

We would come back for sure.

Jeremy Mount and family.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent an amazing week at Casa de Helio. We saw whales from the patio and flying rays at the beach. Watching the full moon rise over the water was georgeous! This was our fourth family trip in 8 years with adult children and grandchildren (8 adults and two children) and we loved the villa, pool and hot tub. The little beach was nice but still a little too much for a couple of three year olds, they did like the sand though. The view was wonderful just wished the beach was a little closer, easy going down but a climb coming back up. The gated community was very secure and we enjoyed walking around and visiting with people as we explored around and Mega was only about 10 mins away. Great memories!

Amazing family destination

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful time at Casa Helios. The property lived up to the pictures. Every room had an awe inspiring view of the ocean. There was ample room for our big family of seven. The walk to the beach was well worth it. The Mega store had everything we needed. Marty, the property manager, was friendly, responsive, and so helpful. He introduced us to local eateries that were nothing short of amazing. We treated ourselves to a whale watching tour and we weren't disappointed. Two whales put on a show for us for over 1/2 hour. Christmas 2015 at Casa Helios will be a treasured memory.

House provide everything it promised!

  • 5 of 5

The view and the whales are all true! We were a family of 3 generations staying over the Christmas period. With three couples each having their own private quarters and bathrooms, it enabled a comfortable 9 day stay. The two 12 year old granddaughters stayed in the casita and felt very grown up. The older granddaughter hoped to sleep on a blow up bed in the palapa outdoors. While it may have worked, she found it too light with the full moon and neighbours lighting. She put the mattress on top of the pull out couch and slept in the living room. It was easy to then dismantle the bed for the day and provided a very comfortable bed. I think the house works best with 8 people max.

We basically lived outside. Since the hurricane, the owner rebuilt the palapa and railing ( as well as windows of course) and provided new deck furniture. There was an issue when we arrived with the heat for the pool. They were waiting for the delivery of a new large propane tank and were fearful of us using too much fuel for the pool that we ran out of propane to use the stove or dryer. We were somewhat doubtful that it would all get done over Christmas as it was a big job. However, with Marty's coordination it all happened as promised and we had a hot tub. The ocean this year is so warm, we spent more time there than in the pool, but it was nice to have an evening hot tub with the full moon.

The Mega grocery is less than 10 minutes away and has everything. We did all our meals in after the first night, which we had fun with. We even perfected the perfect marguerita! Some of the appliances are a bit dated for the quality of the house, but after the expense of repairing the hurricane damage, it is understandable. When we were short of some items, Marty provided them. We did employ the housekeeper one day during the time which worked well. We felt very pampered with the kind gate guards, the gardeners, the pool maintenance person and the housekeeper.

We did go up to La Paz one day to swim with the whale sharks which is highly recommended. You do require a car to stay in that area. We rented from Alamo, and the others used National and Cactus with no problem. Once you get over the fact that you need all the insurance and it will cost more than the car, then all is good. We found the Mexican people we met with very helpful and kind. The beach below the house is beautiful, and even over Christmas we often had it to ourselves.

We highly recommend this house to families
