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.

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!

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 San José del Cabo

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!

Calm and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

My wife and 2 daughters and I spent 3 nights in this very nice, well-equipped condo in San Jose del Cabo. The condo has a great view of the ocean, is very comfortable, and is equipped with everything you need for a beachfront vacation. The pool area is very nice and is well-suited for quiet relaxation as well as play for fun-loving kids. The beach is quiet and beautiful, with moderate waves and excellent swimming. We loved it!

Wonderful relaxing week in San Jose del Cabo

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from San Jose del cabo. today, October 21st. The condo was beautiful and comfortable for us. There were 6 adults. I slept in the master bedroom king sized bed and it was very comfortable. We loved the pools and hot tub and spent hours in them. The beach in front of the condo was beautiful but it was not swimmable for us this time year. Although there were surfers out there most days. We rented a car and I would definitely recommend it. We loved Rossy's restaurant and went twice and also loved Blue Fish restaurant for good sea food. 7 Seas was good too but pretty expensive. We loved having the car for going to the near by store La Comer to get groceries, restaurants, and beaches. Our favorite beach was Santa Maria. We saw some pretty fish snorkeling on the far right side by the rocks. We also had fun relaxing under free palapas at Palmilla beach and we were able to rent kayaks there too which we loved. The kayaks were $20 per kayak for an hour an a half. Chileno beach was swimmable too and we had a great time there. It was mostly locals as was palmilla. The condo complex was pretty empty so we felt like we had it to ourselves, which was lovely. We were almost always alone down at the pool. Overall we had a wonderful week in San Jose!

Awesome Views - Quiet Location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, well-kept condo in a very nice community. We were here on Easter Weekend and it was very quiet and not many people. The ocean view is incredible! The condo is clean and nicely appointed. Jodi, the owner, was great to work with. Only about 10 minutes away from the quaint downtown district of San Jose Del Cabo. The beach here is wonderful and very peaceful. We were looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway and we found it! We will definitely consider returning to this El Zalate property and recommend it to friends and relatives.

Perfect Weather & Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy with our visit to this unit and complex. Everything was as promised, and the owner made the transaction very easy. The weather was perfect! Warm, low humidity, and no bugs!! The unit had the most well stocked kitchen we had ever seen. We were impressed to find a crock pot, storage containers, measuring cups, cookie sheets, binoculars (one set was missing from the case), games, and beach towels. The bedrooms and bedding were very comfortable. Our favorite spot was the patio. We saw every sunrise, and there were blankets on the comfy chairs to keep us warm in the early mornings. Nice touch! The pool and ocean views were exactly what we hoped for when we booked this particular unit.

The complex and residents are extremely nice, and the landscapers are meticulous. The complex itself is generally quiet with families. (Any condo along this corridor is going to have highway and construction noise, and this one was no exception. Can't hear it from the beach or inside the condo though.) We spent a lot of time on the beach and used the warning flags at the resort next door as our guide for wading. We saw people swimming and paddle boarding right in front of the complex. Our daughter flagged down the vendor and went horseback riding from there too.

We rented a car. It took a couple of days to get used to the traffic pattern, and the drivers are aggressive with little regard for stop signs or speed limits. But by the middle of the trip, we adjusted. We met people who didn't have a car, and they walked about 20 minutes to the grocery store every morning. The El Comer grocery store (previously Mega) is in a plaza with a Starbucks, McDonalds, and Dairy Queen. Right outside the complex is an OXXO convenient store to the left and Trader Dick's Market to the right. We went to Trader Dick's several times for homemade pico and guacamole...delicious. We also walked up to Sardina Cantina a few chicken tenders ever!! We spent one day in CSL. Ate at Soloman's Landing, shopped, and took the Sunset Cruise through EcoCat...all recommended. We visited the square in San Jose Del Cabo to shop. Would like to eat and spend more time there. We had originally planned to do many more activities (snorkling, whale watching, Flora Farms, golfing, fishing), but we were so comfortable laying by the pool and beach, that we decided to just relax. We plan to return and hope to stay at El Zalate and this unit again!
