Why Meredith Savadove chose San José del Cabo

Las Mananitas is the most beautiful, premier, luxury properties in San Jose del Cabo and we wanted a comfortable little place there to enjoy the beautiful Mexican sunshine, beaches and people. Our unit is perfect! The living is so easy, all on one level...private pool right out our back door and the miles of beautiful, powdery, white sand beach and Sea of Cortez is steps away. The property is incredibly well-maintained and we love every minute we spend there! We can easily get into Cabo San Lucas if we want night life, and the restaurants walking distance from our place are fantastic. The location is absolutely ideal. It is a perfect haven for a relaxing, stress-free vacation filled with sunny days, gorgeous sunsets and beautiful evenings....just spectacular!

What makes this condo unique

Very close to the quaint little town of San Jose del Cabo, yet very easy access to Cabo San Lucas as well. Semi-private 10 steps from back door and right on the beautiful white sand beach. Walking distance from great grocery store and excellent restaurants. Perfect location with full compliment of ammenities to make your vacation the perfect one!

Beautiful accommodations, friendly staff, so relaxing, wonderful vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better vacation!!

The condo was beautifully decorated, fully stocked with everything we needed, and in a great location - grocery store, some restaurants & car rental within walking distance. The work out facilities were also very nice. The biggest surprise was the wonderful semi private pool - although listed in VRBO description we didn't understand just how private it was until we got there. We split our time between the main pool and the semi private pool.

We came to Cabo for relaxation, but night life and restaurants aren't too far away if you are looking for that. We took a couple day trips to some beaches: Cabo San Lucas and Santa Maria and had a wonderful time there too.

We were there in May 2017 and the weather was perfect and not crowded at all. I would definitely come back to this condo again! HIGHLY RECCOMMEND!!!

Thank you!!

Owner's Response: J--we are SO HAPPY that you had such a great time! Exactly what we love to hear from our renters. Yes, the pool is almost totally private, isn't it? Very happy that you had a very relaxing vacation in beautiful Baja. We are very excited to hear that you want to return. It was a pleasure working with you and we would love to have you back. In the meantime, take good care and Happy Summer! -Meredith and Gary

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

Simply superb! This condo at Las Mananitas has it all. The location is terrific. It faces the ocean. The semi-private pool feels private. The grounds are meticulously landscaped. Inside, the condo has everything you need -- many plush bath towels, plenty of beach/pool towels, a hair dryer, lots of kitchen gadgets, 2 televisions, washer/dryer. There are several spots to dine -- inside at the breakfast bar, at the dining room table, on the patio, or by the pool. We only had breakfast and cocktails there, but easily could have cooked meals. The place was immaculate when we arrived.

There's plenty of free parking just outside the condo's front door. The pool areas are lovely, and we never had trouble finding chaise lounges with umbrellas.

A huge grocery store ("La Comer") is across the street, and sells everything from fresh pastries (huge, flaky croissants for 50 cents each) to wine (big selection) to bicycles and clothing. It's an easy walk to many restaurants and shops.

Dealing with Meredith was a breeze. She responded promptly to every email. Her listing accurately reflects what you'll see when you arrive to her condo at Las Mananitas.

Among the restaurants nearby, we especially liked Cynthia's for its organic and fresh cuisine. The wrapped fish was delicious. They have a pizza special on Saturday nights. We didn't try it, but saw others enjoying it (comes with a bottle of wine). Also found the NY Deli (run by a Canadian) to have good sandwiches.

The beach is not supposed to be swimmable, but we saw a few people plying the waters. We dipped our feet in, but mostly walked the sand. We did visit Chileno Beach (a drive of about 10 km) which was more crowded. Also took a drive to Cabo Pulmo (2 hours) to snorkel the newly restored reef there (terrific excursion if you can stomach the last 10 miles of rocky, dirt road).

Yes, of course, we highly recommend this condo. In all, it was perfect save one thing. We wish we'd stayed longer.

Owner's Response: Kathleen--THANK YOU for the kind words...we are THRILLED that you had such a great time. I am sorry the beach was 'black flagged' for a few days when you were there--sometimes that happens, but there Sea of Cortez is always 'swim-able' at this time of year unless there is some bad weather brewing. Anyway, please come back! It was a pleasure working with you and we are so happy that you ha such a great time! In the meantime, we wish you and your family all the very best, Meredith and Gary

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this centrally located unit. It is located on the ground floor, literally steps to a small pool. A short walk leads you to the beach and the other pools which seemed to be warmer. The unit comes equipped with all your basic needs. We walked daily to the La Comer (the big grocery that has everything you could need) for food and drinks to bring back where we grilled out on the immaculately kept grills. I always felt completely safe and plan on returning to Las Mananitas again!

Great vacation, we will return!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a great value look no further. Las Mananitas was excellent. Accommodations were comfortable,relaxing and peaceful. Beach, pools, amenities, people, convenient to shopping and transportation, safe, I could go on. Starting with the owners professionalism in communicating from day one, her recommendations, and the simplicity of arrangements, it turned into a great vacation. I want to personally thank the owners for allowing us to use and enjoy there condo. San Jose Del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas were just a simple bus ride away. Transportation was very convenient. Great food and shopping a 5 minute walk away. Las Mananitas was incredible. Grounds were beautiful and if you want to relax it is perfect. Even on a rainy day the hot tub was the best place to be. I would recommend Las Mananitas and plan on returning. Thanks VRBO and special thanks to owners of Condo.
