About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Enjoy this beachfront condo in El Zalate, a peaceful, glorious retreat in San Jose Del Cabo. The view from this oceanfront condo is magnificent and you're just steps away from the gentle waves of the Sea of Cortez. Condo has cheerful beach decor and is stocked with everything you need. I will work with you to plan your holiday vacation so your visit is low stress!

Enjoy breakfast on our patio; you overlook two beautiful swimming pools and a hot tub. Just on the other side is the beach! You'll love being on the first floor; life is just easier without having to trudge upstairs to your room! We are tucked away in the corner of the complex for privacy! Security has never been an issue. I've stayed here by myself and our children have grown up here! We sleep with our doors open to listen to the surf at night. We never get any highway noise only the sound of the gentle fountain outside our front door and the break of the waves from the ocean side.

You hear the sounds of the waves and enjoy a perfect ocean breeze!

We have a full kitchen and plenty of fabulous restaurants are within walking distance. We love to cook so our kitchen is well equipped. We have a BBQ grill on the patio for your use. We have dining tables inside and outside to accommodate your preferences.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and the second bedroom has two twins which can be converted to a king bed as well. There's also a double size foldout couch.

All you need to bring are your personal items; everything else is provided! We have beach towels, pool floats, boogie board, noodles, books, sand toys, hair dryers.

Parking is never a problem for our unit. We own the closest garage to the building and you can always park in front of it for your convenience!

About Diane O'Byrne

Cabo is our second home. We try to get there as much as we can! The weather is always perfect and life here is just a slower pace. We just re-decorated the entire condo in beautiful and bright colors! I will work hard to help you plan your vacation. This is meant to be a low stress, peaceful holiday!

Diane O'Byrne purchased this condo in 1997

Why Diane O'Byrne chose San José del Cabo

We first visited Cabo 20 years ago and fell in love. We sent my in-laws here for the Winter and they met the developer of El Zalate and knew this is the place we wanted to settle. We are one of the first owners and LOVE it here. It's a true community. We're are in San Jose which is a quiet, small village with an active artist colony and fabulous eating! We wanted to avoid the craziness of Cabo. We head to Mexico to relax. El Zalate is a residential community. Many of our neighbors live here year-round. Everyone looks out for each other and helps each other!

What makes this condo unique

We start every morning with our coffee in hand and take a chair on the patio to watch the sunrise over the water. It is truly the most peaceful sight you can imagine. We love our location on the first floor....You walk out our door to the swimming pool and then the beach. It is so can come in and out for drinks, food, bathroom, time out from the sun! We love to cook so our kitchen is well equipped with everything you need if you love to cook, too! And if you don't, there are so many fantastic restaurants within walking distance!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a truly marvelous week staying at your condo in San Jose del Cabo. It was very pretty and comfortable. We lacked for no amenity. We very much appreciated the fact you had Internet access so we could keep in touch with office and family. You have such a great location on the lower level near the pool and Sea of Cortes. We spent most of our days on the patio or in the pool. It may have been the fact of the hot season, but there were only a few people using the pool and we had it to ourselves most of the day.

Thank you also for your “Notes” as we used your recommendations of places to visit and eat. We rented a car for a couple of days and traveled into San Jose and Cabo san Lucas visiting places you recommended and eating at restaurants you recommended.

El Zalate is a perfect place to stay when visiting Los Cabos. It is quiet, peaceful, and beautiful right on the beach! You can hear the surf with your sliding doors open at night. A sure way to lull you to sleep. The sunrises in the morning are spectacular. You can view them from the patio, poolside, or on the beach. Whatever suits your fancy on any given day. The condo itself is stocked with everything you need and is very clean and well kept. El Zalate is centrally located. An easy drive into San Lucas, and very easy drive into San Jose (even walkable into San Jose if you want a little more exercise). Restaurants galore nearby, as well as golf. We had a service for transport to and from the airport, then walked to a nearby car rental to rent a car for the week. So easy. We would definitely rent here when ever we return to Los Cabos!

Wonderful beach front condo

  • 5 of 5

This rental condo has really everything, plus more than you will need. Close proximity to pool and beach, made it wonderful given we had infant traveling with us. We were able to have her nap and still hang pool side with a baby monitor. Lots of beach chairs, umbrella, sand toys, pool floats and noodles. Our older boy had a blast with all of these toys. AC worked great and felt wonderful given it is HOT in August. The security guards were helpful and always pleasant. They take pride in the upkeep in the property, hand trimming the lawn every morning. You don't need a car for this condo, however we chose to rent one so we could easily explore the baja region. Overall, this was a fantastic place to stay. We hope to be back some day.

Excellent location and great ground floor condo!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this condo. We are a group of 3 moms who took time away to relax and surf. The condo is walking distance to zippers but also an easy drive to downtown San Jose. We loved the ground floor location for easy pool acccess. The front patio was also great for relaxing in the shade. The owners were very helpful and we are very happy with our stay! Thank you!!

Relaxing times in San Jose del Cabo @ El Zalate

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son and twin sisters and I sent a wonderful week at El Zalate in condo 103. With the pools just steps away from our patio and the beach just steps from there it couldn't be easier or more convenient. The beach was actually very private as we setup everyday with chairs, umbrella, music and cold fluids and pretty much had it to ourselves other than beach walkers. The waves at this beach are for the experienced body surfers and lots of thrills. I recommend fishing and sailing for extracurricular activities. Momma Mia's right next store on the beach will prepare your snapper fillets for minimum cost and they do it very well...
