Having travelled a lot we felt that it was time to find a vacation home that we would like to return to again and again

PENNY LAGRAVE purchased this condo in 2007

Why PENNY LAGRAVE chose Zona Hotelera

We fell in love with San Jose del Cabo (where the desert meets the sea)after driving up and down the West coast of mainland Mexico. We liked the charm of artsy 200 year old San Jose and the modern conveniences of a world class resort, Las Mananitas.

What makes this condo unique

The condo we chose is just 5 steps up from the huge winding pool and hottub. We liked that fact that you could just step out onto the grounds to get to the BBQ and not have to go up the elevator with food getting cold. Being on the ground floor made the condo feel more like our home. The condo has a huge patio that is covered which makes it possible to have shade all day. For sunbathing, the chaises are just a few steps to the pool. Altho' you are on the ground floor, the condo is private as it is raised up 5 steps so that other vacationers cannot see into the condo.

My Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I just returned from a glorious stay at Las Mananitas. This was my 6th stay at the complex and my first in Penny's unit. After staying in all the buildings, this phase, and this unit are by far my favorite.

I had some friends staying at the Coral Baja just up the beach. When I walked to their complex I had a new appreciation for Mananitas. Coral Baja was crowded, noisy, and the rooms were like an extended stay hotel. Mananitas is peaceful, quiet and you feel like you're staying in some ones home. The unit itself is comfortable, beautifully decorated, well stocked, and very, very convenient. Right off the massive patio is a fabulous salt water pool, the well equipped gym is just across the driveway from the front door of the unit. There's a taxi stand across the street at the Hyatt Place, and the staff at the Mananitas front gate can always get you a cab day or night. The city buses stop about 100 feet from the front of the complex and will take you into downtown San Jose for 12 pesos. The Walmart like store known as a landmark there is walking distance and we walked it daily. The store has been called Mega for years, but has recently been changed to La Comer. The complex is always immaculate and the staff has always greeted me with a smiling buenos dias and ready to help in any way they can.

I had stayed in five different complexes within a few blocks of Las Mananitas, but over the last 6 years I have stayed exclusively Mananitas.

Penny was great to work with. If I had a question, she was very quick to get back to me with an answer.

She handles the rental process in a very professional way and I look forward to returning next year.

Thanks Again Penny!

Very Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location.... Well appointed, comfortable condo a short walking distance to a beautiful stretch of beach. Clean and well stocked, and the grounds/ pool are well maintained. Las Mananitas is NOT a resort, more of a resort like apt. complex. There is NO restaurant, or bar on site. Both services are readily available walking distance away. This adds to the peacefulness of the location, as there is no one to hassle you about time shares, and pesky room service attempting to tidy your room.

Penny is a joy to work with, and more than willing to answer any question or concerns you might have.

If you prefer to have a full kitchen and easy access to all that San Jose del Cabo offers, look no further.

Also, be sure to check out Flora Farms. A farm to table style restaurant, 15 minutes drive away. Fabulous setting and great food.

My family and I just spent another week in paradise. What made it perfect was Penny's lovely condo. It is on the ground floor with a huge patio and most of the time it was so quiet and beautiful we felt like we had the whole resort to ourselves. We took long walks on the beach every day. We did a Tequila Tasting/Sailing excursion at the other Cabo one evening and watched the sun go down behind the Arch. We did the art walk in San Jose del Cabo on Thursday night. And of course, we ate at Zippers - a lot - because we loved it. Can't wait to go back.

Vacation with toddler and baby

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely family vacation at Penny's rental. We traveled with our 3 year old and 9 month and everything was perfect. The rental unit was on the 1st floor so our toddler could walk right out to the pools and the beach was just a short 2-3 min walk away. My kids also loved the bus into town (that was almost like a taxi) always waiting just 1 block up from the property and would leave as soon as we boarded. Great restaurants in town and Cynthia's, just next door, is excellent. The Mega is also very convenient and just a short 5 min walk. A playground is also close by (next to the Mega). Penny's unit had a high chair and our little one was able to crawl all over the place (including the giant patio) THANK YOU for such a wonderful stay!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Almost 2 months later and my kids are still begging to go back! The location and layout is perfect for families. The kids spent hours in the pool, then we'd walk to the beach for a little bit, and then back to the pool. The condo was safe, well-stocked, and extremely comfortable. We highly recommend this condo to families who want the convenience of clean pools, beach access, and a full kitchen. But, we also enjoyed delicious meals at Flora's Field Kitchen, 7 Seas Seafood Grill, and for a very, very special night out for parents, make reservations at Agua at the One&Only Palmilla - unforgettable. Thank you for a relaxing, easy, and special vacation. We have a family travel rule of not going to the same place twice, but we might make an exception for this condo! Gracias a Penny y su equipo!

Las Mananitas is ideally situated - no car needed. $30 cab fare from airport and $7 ride into town or $1 on the public bus. You can walk your groceries back to the condo from the Walmart Style grocery store. There is a new 'swim with the Dolphins' venue across the road - just opened - I checked it out and its great. Also you can spend a day at the new Marina, having lunch at The Container and then go for a swim in the bay at Playalita and check out the new hotel there. San Jose itself has dozens of quaint little shops and a beautiful church in the town square.
