About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Only available to non-smoking adults who appreciate top-of-the-line accommodations with a wraparound view in this delightful walk-to-town-and-beach San José del Cabo location. Let's talk if this sounds like your kind of place!

This rare 2,040 sq. ft. corner condo is so well situated and beautifully furnished that when you step in the front door, you have to pinch yourself to see if you're dreaming! Right away, you notice the picture window in the dining area, the huge expanse of five sliding doors that open up the corner of the living room . . . so you gaze out over the San José estuary towards where the sun rises over Punta Gorda . . . all the way along miles of sandy beaches and the Sea of Cortez. This is a perfect spot for couples who love romance, privacy, and the finer things in life.

Step onto the wraparound covered terrace, sink into the day bed, sofa, or comfy arm chairs, and look all the way to Palmilla Point, where the sun sets. Look down from this third-floor corner veranda, with its stereo speakers, lights, and designer teak dining table, and you'll see one of the resort's infinity pools (long enough for laps), an oversized Jacuzzi, a putting practice area, a BBQ area, and lush landscaping. Raise your sights again, and notice the green of the San José golf course, a reasonably priced alternative to the many world-class courses in Los Cabos, where our Concierge can arrange for you to play. Out front, the tennis court is shaded in the morning and has lights for night play. (Anna Kournikova suggested its location to the resort's famous singer-developer, Enrique Iglesias!) It was beautifully resurfaced in 2017.

The furnishings and electronics were ALL NEW IN 2015, after Odile, which severely affected this home on September 14, 2014. With a beautiful new look and fresh everything, our quality today even surpasses what we had before! Hurricane season is mid-July to mid-October, so despite that horrendous event, don't concern yourself about it the rest of the year!

At Jazz Corner, we invite you to enjoy:

* airy spaciousness and the fun of vibrant art and décor

* really comfortable sofas and beds

* a color printer/copier/scanner

* architectural details like 10' high ceilings, travertine, and granite

* alder wood cabinetry refurbished and refinished in 2015 to achieve a new, lighter look

* exciting original art, accessories from fine Mexican artisans, & quilts made by the owner.

Upgraded and furnished to be the owners' private vacation home one day soon, this unit is as well-appointed as you'd want -- there's nothing generic about it! Premium value also comes from:

* its unique southeastern corner location (much prettier than the other corner)

* every available upgrade such as GE Monogram and ICON appliances

* Multiple built-in speakers in separately adjustable zones

* 2 HDTVs and 2 multi-region DVD players, Apple TV, Sony Bluetooth-AirPlay

* Private wireless network besides the resort's network

* extensive extra built-in lighting and fans

* a modified kitchen layout with extra workspace and a very spacious peninsula

* extra marble

* a Jacuzzi tub

* improved showers

* a safe . . . and

* reserved parking in the garage at the base of the elevator to keep your car cool and out of the sunshine that the area enjoys 350 to 360 days a year, as well as a reserved spot right out front.

We love this place and are happy to rent it (and its 2 King beds) to couples seeking a romantic getaway, a shared vacation with another couple, or a seasonal escape for families or friends seeking active outdoor sports or relaxation, but without young children or pets. (Families with children are invited to stay next door in Salsa, VRBO Listing #232035, which is also less expensive because it's not on this premium corner.)

About Chris Smith

San Francisco empty-nesters who've always enjoyed living and/or vacationing at different beaches, we were thrilled to discover San José, 'the quiet Cabo' with so much to do, and quality property as nice and relaxing as this uniquely situated walk-everywhere hilltop condo at Alegranza Resort.

Chris Smith purchased this condo in 2010

Why Chris Smith chose Club de Golf Fonatur

• friendly, family-oriented, beach town built around a historic mission church

• visitors are appreciated but the town isn't overrun with cruise ship and Spring break crowds

• an array of great sporting activities, including pools long enough for laps, a fitness center, and a tennis court

• great restaurants and exciting art district

• lots of spa services, coffee shops, and places to chill

• desert-meets-the-ocean setting has relatively low humidity and few bugs

• easy direct flights and a 20-minute drive from the airport

• so many unspoiled beaches that you can visit a different one every day

What makes this condo unique

• gorgeous 270-degree views from sunrise to sunset

• privacy (visual and acoustic)

• fortunately not adjoining a loud cobblestone street like the NW corner

• watch the sun rise from either of the two King beds

• expanded kitchen layout - great to work in and enjoy views in two directions

• a huge picture window in the dining area overlooking the sea, estuary, and town

• all the glass facing the ocean view–we love 'em wide open; only the corners have this

• international design and high quality construction, plus our new-in-2015 upgrades

• cooling breezes on the terrace, where it's sunny in the morning and has p.m. shade

• Flexibility for large groups because this condo is next door to another 2 BR, 2 BA condo we bought so that extended family and friends can be right next to each other in 4050 sq. ft. If this condo is booked, or for a less expensive alternative, see the other 2 BR condo 'Salsa'—not a corner, but it sleeps 4-6 more economically (VRBO #232035) and does accept young children.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I were blessed to spend a week in your home away from home. It is a gloriously colorful environment. So glad to see you recommissioned to have your lost art replaced. As an artist I do appreciate the unique colors you have captured in the comfort of your home. To have you share it with others was a delightful moment in time.

Highlights are waking each morning to the awesome beauty that surrounds one inside and out and dining in the incredible large outdoor space and enjoying the rich brilliant sunsets while drinking a cocktail, truly a happy hour. Thursday night art walk was inspiring and wonderful restaurants to choose and dine from as well.

Truly a place to be for inspiration as an artist or poet, even one that is still within.

Hopefully one day soon we will return but this time it would be even better to have loved ones join us as well.

Can't Stop Appreciating This Amazing Vacation Place!

  • 5 of 5

At Jazz Corner we really got the relaxation we needed! We enjoyed reading and visiting with one another indoors and outside on the terrace. We used the Apple TV to watch some fun movies and shows. We cooked "at home" with fresh local ingredients from the organic market and the Flora Farms shop in town -- although we ate out at least once a day, thoroughly loving the vast range of restaurants! We caught up on our sleep -- on a comfy King-sized bed! The furnishings were happy and fabulous (and we miss that atmosphere now that we've left). Jazz Corner was very well equipped and perfectly situated. We felt especially fortunate to be on this high corner, where the view is spectacular (if a little breezier than at ground level occasionally).

But we didn't JUST chill! We swam and read around the pools, worked out in the fitness center, hit the tennis court one day, and walked into town. We explored the local area; we got cool jewelry, produce and chicken, cold coconuts, and a great lunch at the organic market. We made a day trip to snorkel at Cabo Pulmo, although we ended up seeing even more colorful fish when we snorkeled closer to "home" at Chileno Bay. Our daily adventures were always fun, and driving was easier than we expected. As artists, we were happy to check out the Thursday Night Art Walk in San Jose's Historic District. As a special treat, we got some a couples massage! The local people are friendly, as are the staff and other guests or owners at Alegranza. We get why the popular Los Cabos bumper sticker says "NO BAD DAYS!" We will eagerly return to Jazz Corner and San Jose del Cabo!

Jazz Corner at the Alegranza, San Jose del Cabo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Jazz Corner worked out beautifully. The condo was perfect for our needs. Love the decor, and it was so comfortable. Everything at the condo was in good shape. The wedding we attended was gorgeous: held on a bluff overlooking the Sea of Cortez. However, we're so glad we stayed at Jazz versus the wedding hotel, which was beautiful & right on the beach about 1/2 way between Cabo San Lucas & San Jose del Cabo, but isolated. We loved the location of Jazz; walking to the little town, checking out the tiendas and restaurants. Per your recommendation, Cynthia's was delicious. We went there a couple of times. Thanks again for the rental and all your help with details. Hope to get back there next year!

PS The late May weather was great, in the 80's.

Jazz corner is gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

At first I thought that Jazz corner doesn’t really need another 5 star review. It gets 5 stars from everyone who stays there. But then I realized that we were one of the first guests to stay in the condo after hurricane Odile, so people might wonder if it’s still a great vacation condo.

The Condo

The condo is huge, and beautifully appointed. From artwork to furnishings everything is first class. The layout is beautiful, and with the second bedroom with its own ensuite bathroom, you can have guests over and still have lots of privacy. The pictures and description on the website are not exaggerated. If I had to find a negative it would be that they need more end tables on the deck for those afternoon cocktail hours, but that’s about it.

The View

The condo has fabulous views of the sea of Cortez, the estuary, and even back to the town of San Jose. If you enjoy watching birds, this place is a treat. We had vultures and frigate birds soar so close to us you could almost reach out and touch them. One night we were treated to an air show by three peregrine falcons. And of course there is whale watching at that time of year as well.

The Location

The good part is that you are on the third floor of a condo the sits high on a hill. The bad part is that the walk home always ends with a climb. We enjoy walking, so we only rented a car for a day or two, but if you have difficulty walking then you may need a car full time.


The resort is fabulous. The pools are beautiful and the staff is very accommodating. They also have a small pitch and putt area right below jazz corner. It has a couple of bunkers, so you can get your golf fix in….sort of.

San Jose

At first we were a little disappointed in San Jose. Of course the hurricane did a lot of damage, and it takes time to get things cleaned up. The more we walked around the town, the more we started to enjoy the people. We were there during the Festival of San Jose, and boy do these people love to party. You have to get out and be a part of it, especially the fair grounds and the Charreria (some of it may not be for everyone). The only downside is that the music goes on all night, and you will hear it very clearly from jazz corner.

So the bottom line for us is that while we loved our stay in San Jose, it was Jazz corner that made the vacation outstanding. It is an absolutely fabulous condo in a beautiful resort with spectacular views. What else do you really need

Owner's Response: We agree with all that Greg said! We ran out of time on our last trip to find terrace end tables that fit the décor, but they will be there for the next guests! Also, yes, the town is super friendly, the locals love their festivals, and the music can be heard all over town during the couple of festivals or special holidays during which celebrations go into the night. A check of the Los Cabos Guide online ( under Mexican Holidays can clue you in as to whether there's a festival or holiday during your proposed visit. Of course, these are culturally rich events, but earplugs and closed sliders might help while they're going on. In November there's also a school that has daytime band practice you can hear as they get ready for the Revolution Day celebration. We'd rather have our guests know about these events and plan accordingly, so we're glad Greg mentioned this. And we ARE very appreciative for "another 5-star review" . . . for the content it provides, updating prospective travelers, and because our rankings in VRBO are positively affected by the recency of our reviews. So, a triple big thank you to Greg . . . Please come back soon! Chris & Toby

Fabulous Stay at Jazz Corner in Alegranza

  • 5 of 5

Jazz Corner was wonderful! From the interior design, to the attractive furnishings, to the thoughtful attention to detail - all was carefully orchestrated to create a comfortable and beautiful accommodation. We loved the use of color - it was playful and set the mood for for our stay in Mexico. We were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have chosen a more beautiful location! The restaurants were fantastic - Casianos was our favorite (and that's saying something... because we didn't have a bad meal while in Cabo!) The beaches were super, but our favorite spot was by the pool at Alegranza at the end of the day. Chris and Toby, thank you for sharing your home with us - we had a very special vacation because of you!

Owner's Response: We're so happy your two-week long anniversary celebration was so wonderful, especially considering that you left another fabulous coastal community--your Mendocino County home--to vacation here! I enjoyed all the photos and experiences you shared with your friends on Facebook -- including making friends with a local woman with whom you're now corresponding with the help of an English-Spanish online translator! How cool!

ALEGRANZA was Grand!

  • 5 of 5

Alegranza was even more beautiful than we expected. The condo, the size of a house, was very clean. Also, it was both beautifully and tastefully decorated in bright & fun colors. This place was very spacious giving privacy to both couples. And the condo had everything we needed and more.

We enjoyed morning coffee & tea on the patio while taking in the view of the ocean.

The man in charge (his name escapes me) was most pleasant & helpful.

Another plus was the location. Nothing was far from this condo, beach, groceries. restaurants, shopping, etc. were all most convenient and it did not take long to find our way around.

On behalf of myself, my husband, our son and daughter-in-law, we were so very pleased and would not hesitate to highly recommend this vacation rental to other family and friends.

Our only regret-- that we could not stay longer.

Most Sincerely,

Patty Freeberg

Owner's Response: I know some people look at the photos and wonder about the magenta ultrasuede sofas . . . and it's nice to hear so many guests say they find Jazz Corner "beautifully and tastefully decorated in bright & fun colors." That was our goal, and Mexico seemed the perfect spot to enjoy that freedom. The "man in charge" Patty refers to is Miguel, our rental coordinator and concierge -- our local go-to-guy for help arranging fishing, dinner reservations, massages, whatever . . . coordinating check-in and check-outs, and taking care of anything guests might need such as refilling the propane tank for the grill, changing a lightbulb in the high ceilings, etc. All our guests have told us that he is a gem, and we're blessed to have him.

This is a great location - in just ten minutes, you are in the heart of San Jose with shopping, art, pubs and restaurants! A fantastic view of the mountains and Sea with beautiful art and furniture surrounding you! This is a fantastic place to call home for a week in cabo! A few small issues during our stay, but nothing to keep us from coming back again!
