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!!

Lovely condo with almost private pool

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay. The unit had every possible thing we needed and the location was great. The security staff were friendly and helpful. We used the tennis courts and every single pool throughout the complex. Loved the sunrises and sunsets. We used the urbano buses to get into town when we didn't want to walk. La Comer food store very close as is Starbucks. Recommend Cabo Adventures for tours, very professional. Make sure to visit Cabo Pulmo for snorkeling and Flora Farms.

Great place to stay if you want to relax and enjoy the slow pace of San Jose del Cabo

  • 5 of 5

Place was clean, well stocked, had plenty of towels, and had very good location to enjoy the small pool and still have a glimpse of the ocean. The larger pools were just around the corner and were also very nice with a hot tub, too. There was red and black warning flags up and down the beaches so no getting into the ocean water there. Surf is very rough. The office staff was helpful. Security was fantastic. The guards made rounds routinely and were very friendly. There was a lock box in the closet, too. It was very hot and humid when we were there, so the air conditioner was needed, it worked well, and was on most of the time. The conditioner is noisy, so I recommend sleeping with ear plugs if you are sensitive to such noise. The bathroom had one sink and a shower stall that was in good condition. The shower head needs either repair or replacement as the water doesn't flow straight and is unadjustable, but worked well enough. We did drink the water from the tap and cooked with it without any ailments. I never had to buy bottle water since I brought my own container and used the ice from the freezer.

We used the buses often and bus stop out front was very convenient and cost 12 pesos per person. The grocery store is slightly up the street, but easy walking distance. There was a lot of construction going on throughout San Jose del Cabo including in the Historical district that made walking not so pleasant, but they are working hard to get most done by high season. We did take the bus to Cabo san Lucas twice. This bus can be caught across the street, in front of the Mega store on the main highway. Cost was 37 pesos per person. Overall, we had a very nice stay and if we were to go back, we would stay in this condo again. Thanks so much for letting us use your home.

Owner's Response: HI Nancy--thank you for the nice review and I am so happy that you had a great time. We have maintenance people in our condo as I write this to work on the air conditioner and shower head and those two items should be fixed within a few hours. Thank you for letting me know this. Overall, I am so happy that from this review, and your note to me personally, that you had such a wonderful time. We think Las Mananitas is very special and we are so happy that you found it to be the same. We are happy that you will return--we are anxious to have you back! Again, many thanks! All the best to you and your family....Meredith

We loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 5 days at Las Mananitas, and had an incredible time. This was our second time in San Jose, which is a destination we absolutely love. We came to the property for 5 days, as our yearly trip without kids just to relax and regroup. We were absolutely able to do that. The condo was perfect - well equipped with high quality wares. Right outside the door was a small pool, which I must have gone into 6+ times per day. The main pool was incredible as well. Given that the property is ocean front, it was an incredible site to be in the pool while looking at the ocean. We also were able to spend each evening watching the sunset by just leaving our condo and walking to the beach right in front of the unit. As usual, the food in San Jose was incredible.

Nice place, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Las Mananitas #113 8/6/17-8/10/17. Decided on a last minute vacation and was able to book this unit without a hitch. Our email communication with the owner was always prompt and she was very informative, helpful and really nice.

This was the low season in San Jose del Cabo so it was 1: very hot and 2: no one was around the complex. I think we saw a total of 5 different families/couples the entire time, and never at the same time. Speaking of the complex, it is well maintained with BBQ areas, a workout room/gym, tennis courts, basketball, putting green, three large pools and a small hidden pool right outside this unit. That small pool was the highlight of our trip. Not once did anyone other than us use this pool and it was awesome. We felt like we had our own villa with a private pool.

The unit was nice. Big enough for the three of us. We had planned on cooking most of the time but Cynthia's Organic restaurant changed all that. We had researched before we left and we wanted to try this place that is literally up the street. A very short walk. Well, we ended up eating there two of our four nights and got tacos to go before we left for the airport! Best food we had there. We also tried Javier's at Cabo Azul (a pretty far walk considering the heat, otherwise not bad) and La Lupita in downtown (took a taxi, $7 US there and $8 US back). Both were good but Cynthia's was better. La Comer (grocery store), Starbucks, Mc Donald's and some other shops are a very close walk, less than 5 minutes.

Wanting to just relax on this trip we didn't do much other than workout, be in the pool and eat. Honestly, is was pretty hot to do much else. We did utilize the facilities the complex provides. We went and swam all the pools at our sons request and there wasn't a soul around the upper two pools. It was nice to not be in a crowded hotel with a bunch of screaming kids and drunk adults. Maybe this changes in the high season but I doubt it.

Overall, our stay was very nice. The unit was nice and easy to access. It was clean, not big, but big enough for the three of us. The owner was very responsive and helpful. The location was perfect for walking to shops/restaurants as we chose not to rent a car. The ocean is pretty far from the unit as the beach is wide here, but you still have an ocean view. Yes, ocean is rough and mostly not swimmable. We would stay here again!

A great retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We spent almost 3 weeks in this unit at Las Mananitas in the off season June/July 2017. There are three complexes on the beach front property. This is complex 1, which is closest to the beach. The other 2 are set back aways but still a short walk. Our unit was not right at the beach, but tucked in behind the main building, about 100 steps to the beach. You can see the ocean from the room, and pool is literally 10 steps from the patio door. The wind would blow fairly hard some days, and the main pool and courtyard area would be quite windy. This unit, with its location, actually never had any of the wind and was sheltered to create our own little oasis. We actually grew to love the location and think its one of the best spots in the complex. Also the pool is shared by only a small number of other condos, and when we were there, we were the only ones, so we had a private pool! It was awesome.

The condo interior is well kept, and more than enough room for a couple. It really felt like a home away from home. The kitchen has everything you need and stores are close by if you have to walk. We rented a car, and drove to the municipal market for fresh local seafood and produce. It was cheaper than the Megastore near the condo. The Megastore, La Comer, has everything you could need like a giant Walmart. The shared BBQ is a bit of a walk, but no big deal. It works excellent, is large, clean and well maintained.

Security on the site was excellent, not like you felt you needed it, but we always felt safe to leave our belongings locked in the room when out. The grounds are kept pretty much immaculate and the staff are all friendly and helpful.

The actual location within the city of San Jose is also excellent. It is really close enough to walk to get any essentials, unlike a lot of properties further away along the coast line.

Two of the best restaurants we enjoyed were Guacamaya's for cheap eats Mexican. Great food. We went 3 times. Floras farm is a must. It is a dining experience like no other. Its on the expensive side, but well worth it.

Overall, we had no complaints and would return in a heart beat, especially in off season when the complex is so quiet. Meredith was great to deal with, and had all the details organized for us. Checking in and out was a breeze. Thanks for the great stay Meredith!

PS: We fed the resident Iguana some fruit by the pool every morning. We named him Eduardo.
