About Jane Mitakides

Our family lives in Dayton, Ohio, and we have owned this beautiful home in Mexico since 2001. With two adult children, we love having friends and family here and enjoying this very special place in Mexico. John is a graduate of The Ohio State University. Recently redecorated. It's perfect!

Jane Mitakides purchased this Condo in 2001

Why Jane Mitakides chose Chula Vista

The peaceful, spectacular view of the Sea of Cortez -- plus the sound of the waves rolling in -- made this a perfect spot. We love being at the San Jose end of the 'Cabo Corridor' (Cabo San Lucas is about 12 miles away), where the restaurants are fabulous and there is a thriving art community. It is safe, quiet, pristine -- recently called 'the safest spot in Latin America' -- and handy to everything! And, depending on the time of year, you can watch the whales migrate into the Sea of Cortez right from the terrace.

What makes this Condo unique

We are the first owners of this property, and designed it to be our home. We have brand new flat screens TVs with satellite service; top-quality American appliances and beds; quality in every detail. But it is the view and location that make this place so special.

                                                              We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jane's condo. There were 4 of us and we felt right at home here. Everyone at the resort is friendly and we spent time visiting in the hot tub and pool which were extremely clean. Loved the well manicured grounds at El Zalate.We tried a few of the restaurants that were within walking distance, Mamma Mia's, Sardina Cantina and La Salsas. We did cook in the condo for most of our meals. Bussed over to Cabo one day, which is so easy to do. I can highly recommend Jane's condo and El Zalate.

                                                              We have stayed in this condo several times, now. And it is still as wonderful as ever. With only a couple minor issues, we had another great vacation. Since the property is on the market we had to let the realtor in to show the unit a couple times. Joe was a great guy, and we didn't have any issues with this, as he gave us enough heads up to be out of the unit when he wanted to show it. The bigger issue was the fact that they were repainting the exterior of the buildings. We were at the pool one day and noticed that the painters were on our balcony painting. It would have been nice to get a heads up, so we could have shut and locked the doors to the unit. Otherwise, we still had a wonderful time. Thank you for sharing your home with us, Jane. We look forward to our next stay there. Hopefully, if you sell it, the new owners will be as gracious.

                                                              Fantastic times with great friends in our favorite place!

The grounds staff are friendly and any small issues we had with the unit were immediately taken care of by on-site management (kudos to them). The complex is quiet and well maintained and the people staying here are very courteous. Wish we could stay longer and will definitely be back.

                                                              Chula Vista, San José del Cabo, B.C.S., Mexico

                                                              This spectacular condo home is directly on the beach in the beautiful San Jose del Cabo area, a picture-perfect Mexican town with a thriving art community. Great restaurants everywhere featuring traditional Mexican and wonderful coastal cuisine. Two pools and a hot tub are right on the beach. We are also in the heart of the most fantastic golf area of Latin America -- near the legendary Palmilla and Cabo del Sol courses, and many many more. A golfer's paradise. Also home to the Bisbee 'Black and Blue,' the richest bill fishing tournament in the world -- because of the fantastic deep sea fishing here.
