Property description

Depending on the season you can watch whales breach in the warm Baja waters on their way to their calving ground from the balcony; baby turtles heading to the sea after hatching from their sand nests and pelicans surfing the waves along the beach. Our children, now young adults, learned to surf at Zippers , snorkel at Santa Maria and ATV the miles of beach on the way to Todo Santos.

Excellent restaurants serve fresh produce and seafood. The Tropicana downtown, Habeneros and the 7 Seas restaurants at The Cabo Surf Hotel are fabulous. The seafood vendor comes to the complex on Fridays...ask for the lobster!

We have enjoyed driving up the East Coast and La Paz to find isolated beaches and small towns with excellent snorkeling, windsurfing and kayaking. An oasis along the way even features water falls and cool mountain streams in the middle of the desert! Ask about eating at 'Buzzards' or finding Punta Gordo.

Poolside we have read many books, sat under the shaded palapas and enjoyed the company of both old and new friends. Happy hour at the beach is a ritual at sunset.

Our complex provides filtered tap water. A night watchman, gardener and administrative assistant in the office care for the condominiums. We are a safe, economical, friendly and clean complex near all the amenities you will need.

San Jose is a quaint town that has maintained it's unique Mexican heritage. The town square and Cathedral is a meeting place for festivals, the children's Christmas concert, Halloween and the Day of the Dead celebrations. All in all, San Jose is a little bit of sunny heaven.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Gord and Karen share the condo with Pene and Chris we are all from Vancouver Island. During Canada's cold and long winters we have enjoyed the sun and sand at our vacation home. Great food, the pool and friends draw us back several times a year. The picture is Gord and Karen outside Hotel California in near by Todos Santos a near by town full of Mexican culture and art galleries.

Why the Owner Chose Viva:
We chose San Jose del Cabo for it's easy access, affordability, quiet and quaint location. We love the excellent restaurants, beaches, snorkeling, sport fishing and consistent weather.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Reading a good book by the pool or enjoying the scenery on the beach out front. The local grocery store is a couple of blocks away and it has all the important things that make the vacation experience enjoyable, cheap fresh good quality food, cheap beer and tequila and those great little limes that fit so nice into a cold beer by the pool. Grab the Binoculars and enjoy watching the whales, cruise ships, sport fishing fleet, or any of the other natural wonders from the deck of the condo. The sport fishing is amazing and one of my favorite pastimes when I'm in Cabo.
