Overview

About the property

2-bed, 2-bath tastefully furnished condo close to everything in San Jose!

Centrally located in the heart of San Jose's tourist district, you will be walking distance to everything a vacationer could desire! Situated in the mid-upper section of the Laguna Vista Condominiums, you will enjoy the convenience to pool, parking, and nearby restaurants. From the main floor covered patio deck you will be able to watch the sunrise over the mountains beyond the lush tropical vista of San Jose's famous estuary.

Fully remodeled in 2013, our condo features custom cabinetry and woodwork throughout, granite, marble, and travertine counters, designer paint and fixtures, and tastefully furnished with a Mexican flair. There is plenty of space with the main level including a dining, living, kitchen, full bath and bedroom, while the lower level is a complete spacious master suite with bedroom, sitting area and full bath with dual-sink vanity. Master suite also features full-length sliding-door windows to cactus garden views.

For your entertainment, we have provided large flat-screen TVs in the living room and master suite, including Blue-Ray, DVD, and HDMI capabilities. Cable TV, high-speed internet, and local cel phone all included! For your listening pleasure there is a stereo system with headphone input for your i-pod/MP3 player.

For those nights you prefer to dine-in, there is a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen with eco-friendly cookware, cooktop, oven, microwave and even a dishwasher. We also have a new propane gas grill on the deck, perfect for sizzling up some fresh local fish, shrimp, and veggies from the Saturday market. Kitchen is also equipped with a high-capacity water purification system, so no need for the big blue water jugs anymore. The condo is also equipped with a full-size washer/dryer.

There is a very lovely community pool area with a shady palapa and lawns just a short walk down the paths from our condo. A great place to take a cool dip and relax in the sun!

Take a few more steps around the corner to a plaza with four restaurants, a health clinic and more. Continue a few minutes down the road to the estuary trail and then onto the sandy beach stretching from the new marina all the way to Zippers at costa azul. Walking the other direction leads to old town San Jose with many shops, restaurants, art galleries and historic church and plaza. The streets and sidewalks have been recently renovated to promote pedestrian tourism. Walking up over the hill leads to additional amenities such as full-service hospital, Blockbuster video, more restaurants and grocery stores. There is no real need for a car unless it is preferred for longer outings. Excellent swimming beaches can be reached by bus or a 5-10 minute car ride north or south of San Jose tourist area.

About Christopher Schwindt

We are Chris and Zenana from Portland, Oregon USA. We have been vacationing in Baja California for the last ten years, especially after Zenana's parents built a house in nearby Todos Santos.

Christopher Schwindt purchased this condo in 2012

Why Christopher Schwindt chose San Jose del Cabo

We fell in love with San Jose after deciding to look for a place of our own. Cabo san Lucas is fun, but a little too busy and bustling. Todos Santos was a little too remote for us. San Jose del Cabo hits all the right notes with every amenity and pleasure for us to enjoy without the crazy college break crowds. It is generally a more relaxed and sophisticated environment, which is what we wanted in a vacation destination.

What makes this condo unique

We love the well-maintained cactus gardens, grounds and pool area of Laguna Vista condominiums. The location to us is absolutely ideal being situated right between old town and the hotel beach, with everything in easy walking distance, including great restaurants at the doorstep. We love the estuary views and bright spaces of our condo, and of course having remodeled and redecorated to our tastes makes it the perfect vacation home we hope you will also fall in love with.

Excellent location in San Jose del Cabo

  • 5 of 5

The place was great for us and our young kids. We were able to walk from here to a variety of lovely restaurants and shops in town. The suggestions they made for entertainment and food were all spot on. We did rent a car as the swimming beaches and groceries are some distance, but all in all a fanctastic place to stay.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

The condo was as described. Well equipped and conveniently located midway between the beach and the town. We were within easy walking distance of our children and grandchildren also! The restaurants just down the steps were marvelous! We did not need to use the lower level but the main level amenities were very good.

Great place close to town

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place to stay just up the hill from a main road that goes into town. We walked through the estuary to downtown as well and this was a lovely way to get there which is about a 15 minute walk. There is a good choice of eateries and shops nearby and easy access to transportation if you did not rent a car. We had some issues with the rental like burnt out porch light, under cabinet light string hanging down onto the counter and a couple other small things but when we called Esther, the property manager representative, she was very attentive and helped us quickly. The only negative thing I can say about the rental is - do not use the dishwasher. The water pressure is not strong enough to wash the dishes properly. It is best to wash dishes by hand. Other than that I would highly recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review! I'm glad Esther was able to resolve all the small issues for you. The water pressure has been an issue this year due to lack of municipal water supply (drought). We and the HOA are working on solutions to keep the pressure up consistently.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 5 nights in San Jose Del Cabo. The condo was very clean, quiet, and well stocked. Our teenage daughters appreciated the wifi and television, although we weren't in the condo too much time due to sight seeing. We had a marvelous family vacation, played a lot of cards, and had a lot of beach time. The master bed was very comfortable as well as the queen bed upstairs. It was nice to have drinkable water from the kitchen cold water tap. We enjoyed the pool in the morning when the sun was shining. The afternoon was quite shaded at the pool and chilly. There is a great restaurant walking distance called Claros where we enjoyed marvelous fish tacos. We swam with the dolphins at the Dolphin Discovery which was wonderful. The only drawback to it was the expense and the overpriced photos at the end. Remember that just about everything is negotiable in Mexico. The condo had everything we needed, even a cooler, beach towels, and snorkel gear to take to the beach. Chris gave us very detailed and easy to follow instructions. The only complaint that I can think of is that the shower downstairs never really got warm and had very limited water pressure. We just showered upstairs... Other than that, it was a fantastic vacation all around. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this condo to our friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Kelly - so glad you and your family enjoyed the vacation! As for the downstairs shower, well they say patience is a virtue... it does warm up after about 5 minutes, but the upstairs one is definitely faster! We look forward to having you back again soon!
