Casita Topaz (Pelicano Building) in the 5 Star Casa del Mar Golf Resort & Spa is a large one bedroom, ocean view condo, including a full kitchen, in-suite laundry facilities, 2 flat screen TVs, fast wifi and a Webber BBQ on the patio. We specialize in rentals of one week or longer and would love to talk with you about what this might mean for you. 'Topaz' is an 'open concept' (no bedroom door) and sleeps 4 with a comfy king in the bedroom and a queen sofa bed in the living room. We have tried to make your stay as tranquil and enjoyable as possible, including a 'safe' to lock up your valuables.
Casa del Mar is a beautiful, quaint and quiet resort, boutique hotel & spa in the prestigious Los Cabos Corridor area of Mexico. Casa del Mar is part of a secure gated ocean front development that contains beautiful grounds, 6 swimming pools, restaurants, sports bar, spa, hot tub, tennis courts and a gorgeous quiet beach. There is a PGA rated golf course (Cabo Real), 5 minutes away. Please note: there is a new resort fee of $30/day/condo if you chose to make use of the hotel restaurants, bar, spa, fitness room, hotel wifi, pool towels or concierge services. Please feel free to talk to us further about this fee!
Casa del Mar is conveniently located and accessible via the local bus system, taxis or rental cars. It is between the funky, quaint and quiet town of San Jose del Cabo to the north and the energetic town of Cabo San Lucas to the south. In San Jose del Cabo, there are many shops and a big North American style grocery store (La Comer) and Cabo San Lucas has even more shopping options. Very close to the Resort is the new El Merkado, a covered open air market including a wine shop, amazing gelato and many dining options to eat in or take away.
Casita Topaz in Casa del Mar is a tranquil desert jewel and is a fantastic vacation destination!

About Zoey Ryan
We are fairly new owners and are a midlife professional couple who love the Baja and who have rented successfully through VRBO for years (including 3 units in Casa del Mar)! Wayne is a real estate broker/manager and Zoey is newly retired after working in the social services and health fields. We are Canadians (Wayne was born in Seattle so I guess he is a hybrid) who live in the Vancouver area and plan to spend much more time on the Baja when we retire. We have 3 adult daughters and love sailing, tennis, yoga and spending time with friends. Wayne is an avid tennis player when we are at Casita Topaz plays most mornings on the great courts at Casa del Mar. Zoey is a hatha yoga instructor and has provided yoga DVD's for your use in the condo!
Zoey Ryan purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Zoey Ryan chose Los Cabos
We first visited the Los Cabos area in 1990 after finding that we could no longer afford Hawaii. At that time, we had two little girls and picked the Cabo area as it was the sunniest, closest, shortest flight from the Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada! Over the past 22 years, we visited most of the areas in the southern third of the Baja and added a third daughter to our family. We were really challenged when we finally decided to buy our own condo as there are many gorgeous locations and Resorts on the Baja. As a realtor, Wayne knew that being clear on our desired elements of a condo was very important! Our criteria to purchase included: beachfront, tennis, swimming, golf, quietness, physical beauty and a feeling of a peaceful oasis in the desert yet close enough to a larger center for groceries, shopping, restaurants and an airport! After many years of searching and experimenting, we found our ‘desert jewel’ and are so excited to let you know that ‘Casita Topaz’ aka Pelicanos 202, Casa del Mar in the luxurious Los Cabos Corridor is available as a Los Cabos vacation rental! We first fell in love with the Casa del Mar development on our very first trip to Los Cabos in 1990. At that time Casa del Mar was ‘lines in the dirt’, however, we were captured by the physical beauty of the area and could envision the beautiful end result! We are so excited to share this beautiful condo with you and your friends and family! Zoey & Wayne Ryan
What makes this Apartment unique
We traveled to Casa del Mar in March 2013 and had no intention to buy but were curious about the current real estate market as Wayne works in this industry in Vancouver. We set up some showings with local realtor Wendy Knapp and looked at a couple of places before we walked in Casita Topaz. We stepped in the door and fell in love! The unit caught our attention because of the fabulous panoramic view and drop dead gorgeous kitchen! We could see the potential for a fabulous luxury vacation condo. The final perfect touch was seeing a whale swimming just off the beach!

Great view, beautiful beach and property
Cozy condo with a great view, comfortable bed and nicely decorated. The beach is not swimmable but nice for walking and watching the powerful surf. Swimmable beaches just a short drive/walk away. Nicely landscaped grounds with nice pool area. 30$ fee to be able to eat at the restaurant, we had a car to drive to San Jose del cabo for groceries and good restaurants. Thursday night art walk in San Jose was a impressive and unique experience. Would not hesitate to return should another trip to San Jose be in our future.
Very cozy and comfortable the bed was excellent
It was the most beautiful weather for two weeks loved waking up to the ocean could see it from the bedroom listening to the waves at night had an excellent vacation all the people at the resort were wonderful we did pay the $30 a day fee to eat and drink at the resort and had a wonderful relaxing time .🌴�🌴�🌴�
We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation and had the chance to make the acquaintance of the wonder staff at the resort!
The bed is extra special and hard to get out of for sure :)
5 star for sure
Love everything about this place can't wait to go back

Relaxing golf vacation
Making the initial reservation was simple and seamless. Zoey, the owner, emailed us with a Welcome Packet in advance, which was very helpful since this was our first trip to the area. She thought of everything we might need such as suggestions and information about renting a car in Mexico, detailed descriptions of restaurants, easy instructions for wi-fi and directions to and from the airport. The condo was nicely decorated, clean, and everything we needed was provided. There was a minor hiccup the first night we arrived when we went to the "resort" restaurant which was on the same property. They require a daily fee to use their restaurant, bar, pool and hot tub. They did not have record of our fee being paid in advance, so they charged us $30 US in addition to a spendy tab. The good news is that when I told Zoey about what happened the next day, she called the resort herself and sorted out the situation and we were given a refund. I had a few other questions during our stay, and Zoey replied to my emails right away every time. I highly recommend the tuna tostada and jalapeño marguerita at the resort bar. The large beach out from was nice for walks, but the surf wasn't safe to swim in the area because there was a strong undertow. The sunset view from the condo and from the pool area was beautiful. We made several meals and at out on the lanai which was perfect. The wi-fi worked well enough to watch a movie from Netflix on our iPad one evening. There was also a TV in both the living room and the bedroom with many channels to choose from. The king size bed and pillows were very comfortable. We stayed for 5 nights and played golf 4 times. The prices were high, ranging $140-$200 per round, but all of the courses very nice. The condo is walking distance to Cabo Real Golf Course, but with clubs etc, a car was necessary. We also played at La Palmilla and Cabo Del Sol. It is difficult to pick a favorite, but if I had to, I'd say La Palmilla ocean course was the best. We had a wonderful breakfast at El Merkado... the caprese omlette wrap was delicious. We expected more tourists around in January, but during our stay, it was very quiet around the condo and at the resort. Not the place to go if you are wanting to night life and partying, but it was a perfect, relaxing and romantic get away for 2.
Thank you so much for the detailed and thorough review of your recent stay at our condo. We appreciate hearing how some of the new Hotel & Resort processes are unfolding ‘on the ground’ and love that all the changes are serving to enhance guest experiences in the long run :) Thanks for your patience in being the ‘test case’.
As we are not frequent golfers, it was particularly helpful to hear about your experience on the courses and this will no doubt provide valuable information to others.
Hopefully we will see you back in the sun soon!
We enjoyed our stay at your lovely condo at the beautiful Casa Del Mar. The photos and description are very accurate. It had everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen was well stocked. The beach chairs and small cooler came in handy. We loved sitting on the balcony and enjoyed a perfect view every morning. Your outside chairs were very comfy. Everything was wonderful. We will be back.
Your thoughtful review outlining what you appreciated about your stay at our condo is very helpful , especially for others considering a trip to the area. It was great to have you as guests and thanks for taking the time to write a review!
Peace and Quiet
Great quiet location. Love the time spent on the patio every morning watching the water. The King bed is one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in and you can lay there watching and listening to the water.
More than worth the price being charged.
It was great having you two as guests and thanks so much for taking the time to write a review.
Listening to the waves while enjoying the view from bed in the morning is one of my favourite things to do too.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay.
