A unique unit with 2 balconies overlooking the gorgeous marina where you can enjoy your morning breakfast watching the sea lions and birds playing in front of you as the boats come and go. The view is beautiful day and night.

Relax, after a day of fishing in the best Marlin fishing waters of the world, or a day at the beach.

Watch the marina wake up while you have your morning coffee.

Privately owned, so there are no hidden/extra costs or time-share hassles. Easy access wallbed leaves plenty of room for the wrap-around leather sofa with Lazyboy. Extra linen available, allowing the sofa to be used as a single bed for one older or two younger children (not a pull out bed).

Don't see what you are looking for? Just ask. Walking-distance charters and activities are too numerous to mention: highlights include ATV and motor scooter rentals, swim with dolphins, and world famous nightclubs.

About Jim Wilson

We went to Cabo San Lucas for a week in December 2008 and couldn't leave without purchasing this condo. We now visit several times a year. We want you to love your stay in Cabo San Lucas as much as we do. The picture is of my husband with his catch on his first fishing trip in Cabo - a 200 lb Marlin that was given to the locals for food.

Jim Wilson purchased this studio in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nos encantó la ubicación, linda vista de la marina y muy cerca de playa Medano. En el departamento había 2 sillitas de playa y en la recepción nos prestaron una sombrilla, nos pareció un buen detalle, no tuvimos que rentar una sombrilla costosa o comer en un restaurante para taparnos del sol. El lugar es pequeño pero acogedor y tiene todos los servicios necesarios para pasarla bien (estufa, refrigerador, cafetera, tostador, licuadora, toallas, secadora, plancha, shampoo, jabón..) Sin duda un lugar para ir si buscas ubicación y agradable alojamiento.


We loved the location, nice view of the marina and very close to Medano beach. In the apartment there were 2 beach chairs and at the reception they lent us an umbrella, we found it a nice touch, we did not have to rent an expensive umbrella or eat in a restaurant to cover the sun. The place is small but cozy and has all the necessary services to spend it (stove, refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, blender, towels, dryer, iron, shampoo, soap ..) Definitely a place to go if you are looking for location and nice accommodation .

Great location for sure

  • 4 of 5

Let's start by saying that the location is very difficult to beat. It is right n the center of everything overlooking the marina where all the restaurants and bars are just steps away. Medano beach is only 5 min walk along the marina which is very pretty. The place does have a great balcony (actually 2 balconies but we only used one as the other had the a/c system and can be a bit loud) which is great to just relax, drink a coffee or a beer and enjoy the views.

The condo itself is nice and feels very secure and safe. At no point did we feel unsafe in that area, even coming back late at night. The main issue with the condo is that it could use some updating but to be fair, that is reflected in the price. Everything worked just fine it is merely cosmetic updates that could be done. The bed, yes it is a Murphy bed, is actually pretty comfortable, but it does make some noise when moving while laying in it. And while the location is great, it can be loud later in the evening with all the activities around. All in all, a great little place which is perfect for an inexpensive get away to Cabo while being perfectly located. If you are looking for a place with all the amenities of a large resort then this is not the place. But if you are looking for a great little place, that is safe/secure, and in the middle of everything then you should definitely consider this place.

The four stars are given strictly based on some of the cosmetic issues as the rest was great.

Marina Cabo Plaza

  • 3 of 5

What happened? We stayed back in 2016 and it was great! This time things slid. The wonderful comfortable mattress had been changed to something smaller and harder. The coffee table was gone so sitting on the couch with a beverage and a snack was impossible. The television got terrible reception and changed Channels for no reason. There were channels with no audio at all which is frustrating when you are are trying to watch the olympics. We enjoyed the balcony patio with the grill, but we were not privy to WiFi except in the lobby or in the hallway. Both doors squeak very loudly! There are bugs in the kitchen. We would return if there was a major upgrade.

Owner's Response: Hi, A new mattress was put in a year ago and this is the only complaint we have had, sorry. We have owned this condo for 9 years and there has never been a coffee table there so I am unclear on that statement. I am interested as to what kind of bug was in the kitchen? Our building of over 100 units has an ongoing pest control policy. I have stayed in many places in Mexico and can safely say that nowhere is 100% free of bugs 100% of the time. I hope you advised the front desk that you saw bugs. We are looking into why the TV reception was so poor as again this is a new issue.

Bug Infested

  • 1 of 5

I was supposed to stay here Aug 10-17. I had to leave by the 13th.This place was filthy, and bug infested. I informed the owner, and asked how we could resolve the issue. It's been over a month, and I still have not received a response. He responded to a previous bad review that you get good value for what you're paying. This is not true, unless you consider a filthy, bug infested place that's falling apart (I have photo proof) a "good value" for any amount, let alone what he's asking. Don't rent this apartment, unless you want to be bitten.

Owner's Response: This comment is simply not true. Our building contains over 100 condos and is meticulously managed. I immediately had staff go and check to see if we had a bug infestation outbreak. They could not find any bugs, the tenants immediately before this tenant found no bugs, the tenants immediately after this tenant found no bugs. The same day she said she had a bug infestation our building repairman was in our condo fixing a leaky tap and he saw no bugs nor was there any mention of bugs by the tenant who was there. She also complained to VRBO we had no pots and pans yet there are plenty. In fact, I was there in July and added to the collection with a brand new no-stick 12 inch sauce pan with lid. Her comment upon her arrival was that everything was fine... then it magically became a dirty filthy place with bugs. She wanted me to pay for her trip and I will not.

Property is in need of some repairs.

  • 3 of 5

The blender and balcony with the view of the marina were the best part! Smoothies and Margaritas outside watching the sunset and life on the marina was beautiful. Kitchen does not have much as far as pans and cooking bowls so don't bother trying to actually cook. There were also some bugs and some repairs are really needed (shower pressure, kitchen drawers, base boards, Murphy bed) that made this stay OK but not great. Book this if you want location and not luxury and plan to spend most of your time outside.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your comments. What the condo is, is excellent value for your dollar. Everything is functional and our reviews have been very good. When we do make all the upgrades that we intend to make, the condo will no longer be offered at the rate it is currently offered at. It has been very difficult, as any condo owner will tell you, to keep dishes and pots and pans of any quality. Water pressure is a Cabo issue but livable. In the future when we do undertake our upgrades, a damage deposit will be required so that we can maintain our higher level of presentation, but as it is for now, we continue to offer an excellent location, close to everything, excellent restaurants, and a wonderful marina experience for an affordable price.

Outstanding location, just a little tired

  • 4 of 5

We were torn between rating this a 3 and giving positive reinforcement or rating it a 4 and downplaying it. In the end we decided to look beyond our high standards and give it a well deserved 4 to encourage others to discover this little gem.

It is probably the best location in the city...a 5 minute walk to famous Medano Beach yet right in the heart of the marina for access to excursions, bars, restaurants and shops. A great balcony to peoplewatch or boatwatch.

The good; probably the biggest balcony (approx 100 sq ft) in the building with awesome views of the marina and city. Easy access with elevator. Very clean. Very safe. Onsite staff (Rafael) is very friendly, helpful and bilingual. This studio is well equipped with full fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster, huge shower, safe, queen murphy bed, beach towels, beach chairs, small gas grill, etc, etc.

The almost good; Although the wifi was complimentary it was weak most of the time. Although this studio is very well equipped the kitchen and bathroom are a little old and weary. A little time and money would easily make this a 5 star

PS to future renters; bring the toaster out onto the balcony for those long, lazy mornings

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! Our place is a gem. We will be upgrading some of the minor issues over the next year. Wifi is generally excellent in the lobby, or just by sitting on the ledge outside of our door, or sit at one of the several restaurants in our complex and enjoy a coffee or drink while you use their free wifi.

good accommodations but need of some minor repairs

  • 3 of 5

This condo is in a good location. Loud at night so be prepared for that. The hotel staff are great. The shower is in need of repairs. There is only a trickle of water coming out. The kitchen drawers are in need of repairs as well. The wifi is intermittent. The other amenities like fridge , washing machine etc. are in good condition. Loved the patio, which gave a great view of the marina and marina wild life. I would stay here again.
