About Valerie Evans

We are a California couple who purchased this condo when our three kids were very small...spent our summers living here for years. We just loved the beautiful uncrowded beach, and the laid back lifestyle here.

Kids are grown, and now we travel every chance we get. We live near San Luis Obisbo, CA. Valerie is a Flight Attendant out of San Francisco.

Valerie Evans purchased this condo in 2008

Why Valerie Evans chose San José del Cabo

We love the small size of El Zalate, less like a hotel and more like a home! The grounds are beautiful, and we have everything we need right here, with none of the crowds and loud parties... We have traveled extensively throughout Mexico and have found no better place.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is a penthouse, so it has vaulted ceilings and skylights. We also have about 300+ extra square feet inside, so we can have a full dining both inside and out. We are technically an end unit, and have nothing above us so it's private, and quiet.

It was a model (show) home so all the furnishing were custom made for this condo by Atlantis House. It's just beautiful.

Beautiful haven on the water

  • 5 of 5

Such a relaxing experience. Valerie's home is clean, quiet and offers a peaceful haven overlooking the ocean. We spent a week there and it went by way too quickly. Great BBQ outside, with terrace and seating to enjoy meals at home and watch the manta rays jumping in the water at sunset. Cool AC for those hot days, and big clean bathrooms. Close to San Jose downtown and 20 min drive to Cabo San Lucas. Valerie is very quick to respond and is super helpful. Definitely want to rent this home again! Thanks Valerie.

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this condo. Plenty of room for a family (the couch pulls out, and is comfortable), the condo is outfitted with everything you might need for your stay. The grounds are clean and well maintained. It is in walking distance to restaurants, music and a short drive to the store. On our last night we grilled freshly caught tuna from our offshore fishing trip on our personal patio. The host is responsive, informational, and accommodating. You can't go wrong!!

Everything you'll need and more!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 (2 adult couples) just returned from our stay in this wonderful condo. We couldn't have asked for a better place to hunker down and "enjoy" a tropical storm. Valerie has thought of EVERYTHING when putting her condo together. The condo has a very "high end" feel to it. The beds are comfy and the towels are plush! The balcony is in the perfect spot to enjoy the great view of the ocean and beach without the direct sunlight getting in your eyes. We were able to enjoy dinner out there multiple times during our stay. Tropical Storm "Bud" hit a few days into our vacation which caused the coast guard to shut down all water activities in the Los Cabos area for about 4 days. Staying in this condo made it so we could still enjoy our vacation. Valerie had plenty of books to read and games to play. The security guards are helpful and friendly. The grounds were clean and the pools were warm (in fact we swam the day of the tropical storm and the water felt great!). The beach in front of the condo was clean and free from the sometimes pesky peddlers. We were able to walk the beach from the condo to the arts district in about 20 minutes. The condo complex is close to multiple restaurants with our favorite being Tacostomo which was just in front of La Jolla resort. Very inexpensive (less than $25 for 4 of us) and great food! The arts district is also close to the condo (5 minute car ride 20 minute walk down the beach) and there are some amazing restaurants there as well (check out La Lupita for awesome tacos(2 for 1 on Tuesdays), El Torro Guero for great sea food and La Forchetta for amazing Italian food). If you choose not to rent a car then make sure to down load the app "Andale Cabo" (it's like Uber and is super easy to use and cheaper than taxis plus you just pay using your credit card that you add to your profile). Over all you can't go wrong staying at Valerie's condo. She is super friendly and and quick to respond to all your needs and questions. She never made me feel like a bother even when I reached out to her multiple times a day! We will for sure book this condo again on our next trip back to Los Cabos!

Fantastic Condo with Great Views!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely great! El Zalate is a quiet group of condos within walking distance (1 mile) to town and even closer to some restaurants. The condo itself had everything we could have wanted. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, dishes and small appliances. Both bedrooms were spacious with plenty of closet and drawer space. The deck extended the size of the condo and was so spacious with great furniture. The only drawback was not being able to have good water pressure and hot water in the guest shower while the master shower was being used. I would absolutely recommend staying here and even looked to book there next year.

Better than we thought...much nicer than the last condo- larger, and the furnishings and patio were to die for. No highway noise!! Just waves crashing...every detail was thought out. Valerie was wonderful to work with. We’ll be back!

San Jose Del Cabo
Car: not necessary

Other Activities: SCUBA at Cabo Pulmo! The Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park is located about 40 miles north of San Jose del Cabo on the eastern cape of Baja, 'the interactive peninsula'. The abundant coral growth on the rocky reefs provides shelter and food for countless colorful reef fishes, many of which are found nowhere else in the world. The marine boundaries are Bahia Las Barracas to the north and Bahia Los Frailes to the south, encompassing approximately 7,111 hectares. This nutrient rich water results in a profusion of plankton that forms the base of a vast food web of invertebrates, fishes, birds and mammals making the Sea of Cortez one of the most productive waters in the world. The reef is the only hard coral reef found in the Sea of Cortez formed by multi-fingers and lies in 18 meters of water. It is one of only three living reefs in North America. A Mexican fishing vessel (the Colima), sunk during a storm in 1939.

We provide snorkels and pool floats! Beach chairs and toys!
