About Meredith Savadove

Why Meredith Savadove chose Zona Hotelera

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

Beautiful, relaxing property; terrific owners

  • 5 of 5

I cannot begin to say how pleased and happy we were with our stay. All of the property information and amenities are as described on the web page. We found the unit to be very clean, well maintained, spacious and very well furnished and equipped - especially the kitchen. The bed was also very comfortable. We encountered absolutely no problems with appliances, air-conditioning or plumbing. Everything worked perfectly. This is a great reflection not only of the personal pride the owners have of their property, but the entire Las Mananitas complex in general. By the way, we found the entire staff at Las Mananitas to be very friendly, helpful, and professional. Security is provided 24/7.

We especially enjoyed the quiet and relaxing environment. If you are looking for a "party" atmosphere and continuous entertainment, look elsewhere. Our pool was virtually steps away from the patio and we especially enjoyed our breakfasts and lunches on the patio. We were sooooo relaxed that it was very difficult to leave.

As other reviewers noted, in general, the beach is not suited for swimming. During our stay the red flags were posted as the waves were very aggressive. Nonetheless, we prefer lounging by the pool and it suited our needs perfectly. We did however enjoy walking the beach early in the morning. Unless you are inclined to take excursions far beyond the property, you do not need a rental car. Many grocery stores, shops, cafes, banks (ATMs) and restaurants are within a short 15 minute walk from Las Mananitas. If you are headed to San Jose Del Cabo, the Urbano bus stops right in front of the complex. The cost is only 12 Pesos (approximately .65 cents) and we never waited more than 10 minutes for a bus; they are constantly coming by and take you right to Centro San Jose Del Cabo. FYI: Taxis are very expensive in this area as compared to other cities in Mexico and we never utilized them.

We want to personally thank Meredith and Gary for allowing us to be guests in their beautiful home. We are very seasoned travelers and highly recommend this property without hesitation. We very much look forward to returning to this beautiful, quiet and relaxing property.

Owner's Response: George--thank you for your great review! I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. I am sorry that you couldn't swim while you were there. There are times when the water may be a bit rough so they 'flag' it, which apparently happened while you are there. If you come at another time (which we would LOVE for you to do!), you will get to enjoy the beautiful, calm waters of the Sea of Cortez. It's very swimmable, of course, depending on the weather and tides. We are thrilled that you loved being in our condo and at Las Mananitas so much and we truly hope you return. It was a pleasure working with you and we so appreciate you choosing our condo for your vacation! We wish you and your family all the very best, Meredith and Gary

Las Mananitas - Sweet Condo

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to pick Las Mananitas for our stay. The owner was wonderful to work with. The condo is exactly as described. The first floor access to the small pool is right out your door. View of the ocean from the patio and a path to the larger pools. The location is within walking distance to many great restaurants and you can take the Urbano Bus into San Jose Centro if you don't want to walk. Cynthia's and LaLupita's were two of our favorite restaurants. Also, Tap Deck had great pizza and TV's for sporting events, which is just around the corner. Long stretch of beach was great for morning walks. We took a sailing trip from the marina in Puerto Los Cabos through Cabo Adventures for snorkeling and swimming. We hope to come back soon.

Paradise in warm sunny Cabo San Jose.

  • 4 of 5

My husband & I stayed for the month of Feb.2018. The pictures on the website are exactly as in the condo. The condo was clean, ample towels & bedding , well equipped kitchen. Comfortable outdoor furniture on the patio overlooking a small quiet pool. Las Maninitas is a beautiful property ,with well groomed outdoor spaces. Close to grocery shopping,restaurants,public transportation, & bike path. Steps to the beach,pools & hot tub. Meredith provides prompt customer service , it is a pleasure doing business with her. We attended the Wirikuta dinner & show which I highly recommend. We also enjoyed a day trip to Todos Santos. Our favorite restaurants were Cynthia's, Sardina's Cantina & Valentina's . I would highly recommend this condo if you want to relax and enjoy the sunshine & beautiful surroundings. We are looking forward to returning next year.
