Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

'Villas Baja' is a Spanish style three-story complex with 29 privately owned townhouse style condos. Many colored bougainvilleas drape from the upper floors to cover most of the building. The grounds are exceptionally well kept with many native flowers and trees. The complex is situated on the first green of the Mayan Golf Course and is only minutes to the beautifully uncrowded beach and the Sea of Cortez.

My unit is on the ground floor (no high steps to climb) and is approximately 915 square feet. This unit is at the end of the building and is very private. The patio faces an expanse of trees and lawn. The living room bay-window is framed with bougainvilleas looking over the golf course. A sparkling fountain can be heard near by.

The patio is accessible from both the living room and the large master bedroom where there is a charcoal BBQ and patio furniture. The red Mexican tile adds flavor and authenticity to the surroundings.

The large master bedroom has just been redecorated with hand-made native Mexican furniture and original art work.

The bathroom has a new Mexican tile make-up arm with a hand painted blue and white sink that lends itself to ease and comfort. A glass block tub-shower is large enough for more then one. Showering is almost like a spa experience. A wicker basket holds warm plush royal blue and bright yellow towels. Just added is an enclosed medicine storage cabinet for personal items.

You will enjoy the newly decorated living/dining room with bright Mexican colors that welcomes you. The walls are decorated with original Mexican artwork from the local artisans of San Jose. A wine rack with hand-blown glassware is waiting for your special wine or margaritas.

The pool area has a beautiful rock inlaid heated swimming pool. A foot bridge bisects the shallow end from the deep end. This is one of the only heated pools in the area. It is kept at a wonderful even temperature. Between the pool areas is a covered palapa that can be used for entertaining. A public BBQ is on an elevated area that overlooks the lush Mayan Golf Course.

Everything is so accessible from this complex, a car is not needed unless you plan an excursion to Cabo San Lucas which is only 18 miles to the South. A Mega Store Complex is a short walk away with groceries, excellent restaurants, phones, Internet Cafe, dress shops and fast food. A bus travels frequently to the historic town of San Jose where there are numerous shops, restaurants and entertainment.

The beach in San Jose is so beautiful. The Sea of Cortez offers some awesome activities. A short walk takes you to 'Message on the Beach' and further along, to rental of water toys. Horses for rent parade down the sand, turtles hatch their young and vendors sport their wares. Walking down the beach will offer many wonderful sights and places to eat. My condo has a guest book that gives more information.

Close to 'Villas Baja' and down the street is 'El Patio' restaurant that will cater your party or serve a delicious meal to your doorstep. A short walk to 'El Patio' and an evening in the open-air restaurant will be a rewarding experience with their superb Mexican cuisine.

Fishing is outstanding. In my condo I have outlined places to go and see. In Cabo San Lucas the marlin fishing is world renown. San Jose hascompleted a new marina. Many fisherman will entice you to their pangas for a day of tuna fishing. The catches are overwhelming and many have to be returned to the sea, but there is always enough to take home or to saute in the condo's fully equipped kitchen.

Between San Jose Del Cabo and (The Corridor) Cabo San Lucas is a variety of outstanding golf courses. There is also several beaches that boast some of the best snorkeling in the area. The 'corridor' has many things to see, such as the Glass Factory, a must. There is bus service, taxi or rental cars nearby.

Of all your travels, this area is a must to see. My condo is beautiful, inexpensive and I would love to have you as my guest. If there is any special occasions, I will be happy to accommodate your needs.

Thank you for viewing this rental.

Sincerely, The Owner

About Cheryl Marcheso, owner

I am retired and wanted a condo by the Sea. I do not like large complexes with hundreds of people. I knew a friend that bought a unit in San Jose and thought it was a beautiful place. I rented her unit and fell in love with the small Spanish style, three story condo complex. The convenience to the nearby beach, golf course and shopping; made this unit just perfect for me. The people who own are very friendly and I enjoy escaping to the sunshine during the long winters at home.

Cheryl Marcheso, owner purchased this condo in 2006

Why Cheryl Marcheso, owner chose San Jose del Cabo

The weather in the Baja is perfect. During the season it is between 73 and 83 degrees and the humidity is low. The breezes blow during the early season and the sun shines almost all the time. I think I have only seen half a dozen cloudy days. The people are friendly and welcoming. The restaurants are wonderful and the entertainment is abundant.

What makes this condo unique

The Sea of Cortez (three blocks away) is spectacular. The sand feels wonderful on your feet and the beach is practically deserted. My property is a bottom floor unit and sits at the end of the building which affords much privacy, yet just around the corner is the warm heated swimming pool and bbq area. Free WiFi at pool palapa

Fun filled vacation!!

  • 4 of 5

Wow, what an exciting and fun filled vacation. Thank you Cheryl for sharing your rental.

The location of your "Villa" is so perfect that a car is not necessary. Easy access to LaComer for grocery shopping and a great walk DT San Jose for restaurants. The artwalk on Thursdays is lots of fun.

A trip or two to San Lucas by bus is very easy and inexpensive. Would recommend: Cabo, Wabo, Giggling Marlin, and El Squid Roe for lots of fun.

Favorite restaurants include: Habenero's, Tropicana, Cynthia's, Retro, Shooters, C.J.'s, Chilitepenio's, and, the Container at San Jose Marina.

You made our trip a vacation full of memories with lots of sunshine!!

Thank you Cheryl, Mary and Randy (Washington State)

Location,location,location!

  • 4 of 5

We just came back from almost 4 months at Villas Baja. This unit has all the comforts of home, from coffee maker to microwave. The location is excellent. You can walk to the centre of town, restaurants, and major grocery store. Short walk to the beach. Short drive to other beautiful beaches, such as Palmilla. Very nice private patio. Excellent value. Would recommend this property to friends and family. I tried to rent it for my friends for next year but a portion of the dates weren't available. Book early for longer stays. A nice complex with a mix of Canadians and Americans.

Great stay in San Jose

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a month ( Feb 2013) at Cheryl's condo in San Jose. All pics and discriptions of this unit are accurate. Property was clean and well maintained. Other owners and guests at this complex were always friendly and had lots of helpfull local knowledge of the area. Being close by to the beach, el centro and Mega made it easy to walk or take a short bus or taxi ride to anywhere you would want to go. We had no concerns walking where ever we went either during the day or evening. Internet access would have been nice since we were there for the full month, but a short walk for a coffee and free access at Starbucks worked out. Although the unit is not large it is fine for a couple and with a full kitchen we were able to cook many of our meals. We didn't have a bad meal at any of the restaurants we went to but really enjoyed Mi Casa for Mexican and La Docce or La Forchetta for Italian. The bright yellow taqueria on the way into the center of town or Shooters by the town square have great fish tacos. It's a bit of a walk down the beach but the ribs at Zippers were fall off the bone delicious. Plan on returning here in the future.

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this condo and a memorable, romantic vacation. The accomodations were perfect; so relaxing and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the beautifully kept area. Activities were close by and we were even able to walk to the beach and store. A week was just not long enough! Next time we are definitely going to extend our time in this beautiful condo. We are counting the days till we enjoy the warm sunshine and superb accomodations.
