About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Located on the 5th floor (elevator access), this two bedroom and two bathroom plus den condominium has gorgeous views of the Sea of Cortez and Palmilla Point, along with its 7 miles of white sandy beach of Costa Azul. Enjoy the beautiful morning sunrise on the over-sized deck and watching the whales during their visit to the Baja. You are just steps away from enjoying the day on the private beachfront area or have a relaxing day lounging by the three pools and large Jacuzzi. End your day by falling asleep to the rhythm of the waves...

The upscale El Zalate complex is located behind a walk-in medical clinic, the Mi Ensalada restaurant, close by is a convenience store, Subway and Domino’s Pizza. You can always enjoy a meal next door at the Coral Baja. El Zalate offers a fitness room along with 24-hour security.

San Jose del Cabo is Baja’s perfect location. El Zalate is within walking distance to several restaurants. Watch the surfers by walking a short distance to Zipper's Surf Break. Experience authentic Mexico with extraordinary dining from inexpensive to 5 star! The Hangman is always a stop that we have to make. You are a short walk away from the Mega grocery store and then catch a taxi back with your groceries.

San Jose del Cabo is a great Mexican colonial town. Enjoy the art galleries, the many jewelry stores, festivals and restaurants. If San Jose is a little too quiet for you, take a short (20 minute) drive to Cabo San Lucas. Spend time on the Medano Beach, take a short water taxi ride over to the famous Lover’s Beach and the Arch; enjoy happy hour at the Mango Deck. Stroll around the marina and then partake in the “night life” by stopping in at the Giggling Marlin, Squid Row or Cabo Wabo!

Nearby sports and recreation includes:

• world class sport fishing

• 5 championship signature golf courses

• surfing

• snorkeling

• scuba diving

• whale watching

• horseback riding

• zip lines

Enjoy spacious open living & dining areas. The interior features Travertine marble floors, tumble marble bathroom designs, granite countertops, alder wood cabinetry and fully equipped kitchen. This condominium has an ocean view den that can be used to reconnect to your office at home or a lounge/relax area and comes with the WI-fi internet/phone (which makes calling home easy) as well as local phone service.

About Jodi Ribail

We needed a place to escape the Pacific Northwest winters. We have been traveling to Mexico for 20 years, when we saw El Zalate we knew this was the place! This unit was used as a rental prior to our purchase it had great reviews and we hope to continue to carry on that tradition.

Jodi Ribail purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jodi Ribail chose Baja California Sur

Close to great beaches, food, watersports (including surfing) whale watching and golf! Close enough to enjoy the night life of Cabo, but far enough away to still have a relaxing vacation!

What makes this condo unique

Well kept grounds, 24-hour security, lounge chairs around the pool always available and no timeshare salesman!

This was our third visit to the Cabo area. Each time we have stayed in a different location, renting through VRBO (Casa del Mar, Terrasol, and most recently El Zalate). All have been great experiences, but our family agreed that we like this condo at El Zalate the best. This condo was just the right size for our family of four and we love the location. The pools were lovely and beach access (we all swam in the ocean) couldn't have been better. We always rent a car but depending on what you like to do, you may not need to. Our favorite restaurants tend to be in San Jose so I think we just made two trips into Cabo the entire week. This condo was spotless and well equipped with all instructions and tips easy to follow. We didn't feel the need to use the air conditioning and instead used the ceiling fans and sliding glass doors to keep things cool. The grounds are beautiful and very secure. There appeared to be a mix of owners and renters there that week (Christmas). It is a quiet complex - there isn't any onsite food/drink service but we aren't big partiers and didn't really miss that. It is friendly and there was a great mix of ages/families by the pool each day - but never crowded. We walked to Zippers for lunch one day and had a fun meal. We took long walks on the beach most mornings. This a wonderful unit and spot!!!

Beautiful condo with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 nights here with our college age daughters. Plenty of room for 4 people. Very clean, updated unit. Beds were very comfortable and furniture was nice. My only interior comments would be to upgrade the towels (some fraying and thin) and bedspreads (not soft to touch). The views were amazing! We sat on the balcony every morning and afternoon. Personally, we think you need a car at this location. The larger grocery store is walkable, but on a VERY busy road without sidewalks. many restaurants close by to walk or a short drive. Old town very close. The beach is beautiful and seems to go for ever. Quiet complex with nice pool and lounge chairs. We loved our stay and would happily go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Carey. We must think alike, as I brought down new towels and a comforter when we came back down in January. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your time in our condo.

A Great Place to Stay in San Jose!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent a week in this GREAT CONDO at El Zalate in San Jose and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to visit Los Cabos.

The location is superb, the property is spotless and the amenities both inside and out are everything one would need. Great restaurants and shopping are close by and are easily walked to and there is always something interesting to see on the beach. This week also happened to be some excellent whale watching.

Also the staff and other residents were extremely friendly and all were happy to be there.

We definitely will return. Thanks Jodi!

Beautiful condo at an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

6 of us stayed at this very comfortable condo, enjoying the amazing morning sunset by the sea. The pool and beach were a favorite for the kids. We ended up renting a car as it made our stay a lot more enjoyable, and I'd recommend it to others as well.
