About the property

***Please check with me about pricing. The number you see at the top of the VRBO page is frequently incorrect. Owners weeks can ONLY be reserved from Friday to Friday. I will ALWAYS tell you what the price for a week will be before you decide to reserve.

The penthouses at the Casa Dorada have amazing views of the ocean, beach and arch. All have HUGE terraces with private hot tubs. The patio doors telescope into each other opening up the entire living room to the beautiful outdoor space. The first thing I do when I check in is to open those doors all the way and start enjoying vacation.

Casa Dorada is a beautiful property in Cabo San Lucas. This new property is on Medano Beach and about a 5 minute walk into town. You are close to fun beach restaurants like the Mango Deck and The Office.

I actually have numerous weeks available and reserved for rental throughout 2017 and 2018.

*** Please note, owners weeks at the Casa Dorada run from Friday-Friday. I am unable to reserve partial weeks, although I am able to request additional nights at a discount if needed.

Property Amenities include:

-Two swimming pools, providing the perfect opportunity for relaxation and refreshment

-Four restaurants and bars, offering a range of options for dining and nightlife

-Private Medano Beach Club, featuring 660 feet of Gulf of California shoreline, plush day beds, water sports, a cabana for couples’ spa treatments, beachfront dining, and fire pits in the evening

About Shelley Carrea

My husband and I were very excited to buy this property. We have been going to Cabo for the past 20 years. We have several weeks at the Casa Dorada and are usually able to vacation there 2 weeks each year. Our most recent trip was in November of 2016. We live in Nevada and the flights are pretty easy from here. We can be on the beach by noon sipping a margarita!

Shelley Carrea purchased this condo in 2011

Why Shelley Carrea chose El Medano Ejidal

We absolutely love Cabo. It is important to us to be close to town. We enjoy walking on the beach and the Casa Dorada is about a 5-10 minute easy walk to the shops, restaurants and marina. The hotel is beautiful and close to several wonderful beach restaurants. We definitely have excellent places to recommend if you rent our property.

What makes this condo unique

The views are incredible from our hotel. You'll fall in love the second you walk through the front entrance to the property. We love watching the action on Medano beach. You can participate in all kinds of activities or just sit on a lounge and enjoy a book or maybe take a siesta.

Sioux City, Iowa/ USA

Loved it here and we will stay here again next year

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in a 2 bedroom/3 bath penthouse the first week of January. Everything was perfect. The penthouse was spacious and clean. The beds and pillows were comfortable. The view was amazing!! The pool was beautiful and warm (a heated pool in the winter months is very appreciated).

We spent so many evenings watching the sun set from the hot tub and mornings eating breakfast watching the activity in the pool and ocean. I loved watching the boats go out in the morning and the cruise ship.

The housekeeper did a great job of keeping the rooms clean and the staff attended to the hot tub each an every day.

We made breakfast in the room every morning. You will need to get all supplies (salt, pepper, non-stick spray, coffee, filters). They have a microwave, stove top, pots/pans. There isn't a dishwasher. Also, it was an added bonus having a washer and dryer.

The staff was great and friendly. We never walked by someone working there that didn't say hello. The concierge was great and helpful. We checked in with the concierge instead of the front desk. Which is good there was a lot of activity in the front desk.

It was an easy walk to the beach. The beach was well cared for and swimmable. The pool always had lounges. They will not allow people to save chairs with a towel for over an hour. That should be implemented everywhere.

There are time share people constantly asking if we got our "welcome package" yet. I knew what they were up to and was not going to spend my vacation being pressured to buy a timeshare.

Shelley was great to work with. She gave me tips and was very patient with me. You can't go wrong with Casa Dorada or this owner.

Tip: don't plan a lot. I think we should have spent more time at the pool and beach. We are normally very active and want to see everything but we loved it there and should have spent more time doing the things offered at Casa Dorada and the beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for you wonderful review. I am so glad you had a wonderful trip. My husband and I are a great deal like you...always on the go. I think we exhaust people traveling with us. I do try and take some quiet time with a book when we are in Cabo at the Casa Dorada. It is so nice to just sit on the terrace and watch the water. I look forward to helping you plan your next trip.

Stunning Penthouse at Casa Dorada

  • 5 of 5

Your penthouse apartment was just superb - thank you so very much.

One of the very last apartments to enjoy the late winter sun, an outstanding view of the resort and of the bay - we spent many hours watching the fishing boats, cruise ships, and various watersports from the luxury of our large deck. We would recommend this apartment to any family of 5 as a perfect retreat and holiday pad.

Thank you once again - Jill and family (nz)

Cabo, Casa Dorada and Medano Beach…Can’t wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

This was my very first trip to Cabo. I had such a wonderful time! The Casa Dorada is AMAZING! Our room was huge with the best views of the beach and ocean. As soon as you enter the lobby of the hotel you have an incredible view of the ocean. The pool and spa were perfect and we had no trouble getting chairs poolside every day. More often we would sit at the beach where the staff were very helpful. There was plenty of shade if we wanted it. It was about a 5 minute walk to town from the lobby of the hotel. Great restaurants everywhere! We actually walked to the Arch…Not many people can say that! Water taxiis are readily available if you prefer an “easier” way over. Shelley was so easy to work with. She called ahead and requested a room on a higher floor and it was perfect. She had so many tips on activities, restaurants and even how to navigate the airport. If you are considering a trip to Cabo and the Casa Dorada I would definitely recommend this owner.

Beautiful room in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the hotel was over an above. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, the room was gorgeous and had everything you could ask for. The location of the hotel was also a great feature, 5 minute walk to town and right behind all the action on the beach.

Great renter, someone I would certainly book a room through again.

Fantastic room + gorgeous ocean views + delicious food + lots of activities = BEST VACATION EVER!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with another couple, recently rented a two bedroom penthouse at the Casa Dorada. It was an amazing set of rooms. Two very large bedrooms, garden tubs, private baths, along with a third bathroom for visitors. Full kitchen including washer and dryer. Very large dining area and table There was also a large open area overlooking Medano Beach. Hot tub on the sizable balcony (with individual balconies connecting to make one enormous deck area). This place was fantastic!

Casa Dorada is beautiful with restaurants on site, pools (and pool bar), full gym and more. The staff is extremely courteous. I called one day about something minor and they were knocking on my door to fix it within 2 minutes!

The beach is full of places to dine. Check out The Office and the Mango Deck for great food and lots of fun! Additionally, we spent time every morning at the Marina-- just a short 5 minute walk from the hotel. This is a great place to walk or run for exercise or just for the sites. Many fine places to eat and also, where you can book boat, fishing, jet skis and more. (You can also find vendors right along the beach at Casa Dorada for activities as well).

This was truly the best vacation I have ever taken. I look forward to going again.

great resort with perfect weather

  • 5 of 5

We spent XMas week at this resort in a penthouse 1 Bedroom. The unit was huge and beautiful. It felt very luxurious and the staff were friendly and helpful. We have never been somewhere with perfect weather for all 7 days. Shelly was a pleasure to work with. We will be returning.
