About the property

1BR Condo with King bed and queen sofa bed

Our condo has a private, third floor balcony that faces the Sea of Cortez. It has air conditioning, as well as ceiling fans in every room.

THE AREA: The Costa Azul Beach is quiet, and is the longest sandy beach in all of Los Cabos. San Jose del Cabo (the SIESTA town) is a slower paced historic Colonial Mexican town, well known for great shops and restaurants. If you want more action, Cabo San Lucas (the FIESTA town) is only twenty minutes away. 9 hole golf course and many 18 hole courses nearby.

CLIMATE: Temperatures are generally in the mid 80s, but it gets cooler in mid winter and warmer in mid summer, and hot in August, September and October.

THE BEACH AND POOL: Our beach and/or pool are usually very quiet. We provide beach towels, beach chairs, & umbrellas for the beach. The pool off the balcony is actually the Belair Hotel pool. Our pool is to the left. A little further is the second La Jolla pool, which is a little smaller than the main pool and has a beautiful ocean view.

ACCOMMODATIONS: Our one bedroom condo has a king size bed and also a queen sofa bed. The condo accommodates up to four (4) people maximum, but is better suited to two or three people. In addition, there is a twin roll away bed.

KITCHEN: Our kitchen has everything you will need to create fantastic meals, including a glass cooktop, microwave/convection oven, dishwasher, and a great set of pots, pans, blender and utensils. We even have a juicer if you would like fresh orange juice! There is filtered water at the kitchen sink.

BEACH TOYS: In addition to beach towels, we have beach chairs & umbrellas, snorkeling gear, air mattresses, a boogie board, various sized coolers, & a variety of buckets & shovels for the kids.

About Bette Michelotti Sutherlin

Mark & I are lucky to get to live in the mountains of the Tahoe/Reno area but escape the snowy winters and enjoy our slice of heaven south of the border. We have spent quiet vacations here and also fun filled times with family & friends.

Bette Michelotti Sutherlin purchased this condo in 2003

Why Bette Michelotti Sutherlin chose Centro

We love the laid back atmosphere in San Jose del Cabo, with it's colonial charm, wonderful people, and great restaurants. Unlike many of our neighbors, we have embraced the Mexican theme in our interior design, while adding modern conveniences. Our guests continually comment on how charming it all feels and how well stocked our condo is. We strive to make it feel like home, which it is to us! We are happy that our guests feel that way too.

What makes this condo unique

The view of the beach from the oversized balcony is spectacular. Watching the waves break while dining al fresco is magical. We hope that you will enjoy our home away from home as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed in the studio twice and it's terrific. I'd

say that even if I wasn't related to the owners. The view

from the balcony is beautiful and the unit is

comfortable and equipped. We usually want to find our

own way when we travel, and stay away from the time

shares, partiers and hype. La Jolla fits us perfectly. The

grocery store is a 25 minute walk away if you want to

cook at the condo. If you want to go out for meals, you

can walk 10 to 35 minutes and you'll have plenty of

choices. Or take a cab. Or rent a car. But the beach is

just out the door and beyond the pool so keep it

simple. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxed. We enjoy

Mamma Mia's restaurant a couple of beach resorts

away because it's close and on the water. And we have

rented cars to drive to Todos Santos from Budget Car

Rentals both times and have had good experiences.

San Jose feels safe and low-key. We recommend it.

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is pretty spacious and extremely well stocked with cookware, dishes, pool and beach equipment etc. It was very clean and the manager, Beatrice, checked in with us. We watched the sunrise on the balcony every morning. The heated pool was very welcome on a couple of cooler days. There is also an inheated pool. The grounds are lovely and well maintained. There is a little noise from the Bel Aire pool that our balcony overlooked but never bothersome. We enjoyed the music. We tried a couple of the restaurants that Bette and Mark recommended and they were spot on. It was a wonderful vacation.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

The one bedroom La Jolla condo was exactly as described on the site and by previous reviewers. The condo met or exceeded our expectations and was ideal for our needs for this short four night vacation. The location makes it possible to get by without renting a car, if you like to walk and use public transportation. We took the public bus for a Cabo day trip, walked to Palmilla Beach on the beach, at low tide (and took the public bus back to the condo) and even walked the 2 plus miles into town. Bette was great to deal with, too. I will definitely consider this property again if I am fortunate enough to vacation again in San Jose del Cabo.

La Jolla, commfortable inviting condo

  • 5 of 5

Stayed from Feb. 3 to 17th. The condo is very inviting with all Mexicana decorations and felt comfortable in every way. The kitchen has more than enough dishes, glasses (all colorful Mexicans) pots and pans, cutleries, clean and the best thing was it had filtered water from faucet. The king size bed was comfortable, dressers, closets have enough rooms to put clothes away. Living room is big enough and had all electrical equipments, books, games and even had binocular which came very handy/ The best was big ocean view balcony where I had meals and drinks while watching birds, jumping fishes, some times whales. I have rented many apartments, villas in Carribean Islands, Europe in last few years but this condo is one of the top. Easy access to San Jose, Los Cabos by local bus which was very cheap. Supermarket is only 10 minutes by walk. Noise from Highway, hotel next door cannot be avoided but you get used to it. Thee are many snow birds from Canada and US who befriended me right away and made stay more enjoyable. Bette was helpful from the initial contact to the end with helpful well written tips, information. Many other units did not have access to Wifi, I was very glad Bette provided it. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for nice, comfortable condo on beach front.

Comfortable Condo

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a short 3 days in December 2014. Condo was very well equipped and felt like home. Even had cold beer in the fridge upon our arrival. Nicely decorated and had all sorts of amenities;spices and basic supplies in cupboards, games, DVD's, local music on CD, extra sun tan lotion, beach gear. There was even a fishing rod and some lures for beach fishing. Unfortunately, the reel had a broken handle so I couldn't catch dinner.

Beautiful view of the pool and beach from the deck, which had a propane BBQ, table and chairs.

Beach was steps away. Even had Satellite TV with a few Canadian channels!

This place was as cozy as any we have stayed in and Bette was a pleasure to deal with.

The complex itself is very well maintained and is in an excellent location, just on the edge of San Jose

Would stay here again anytime.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful condo from Dec 29th, 2013 - Jan 24th, 2013. We LOVED everything about this condo! Great location overlooking the beach....we awoke to the sounds of waves and the beauty of a sunrise everyday. This condo has everything you can imagine, the only thing you will need to buy is your food and refreshments. Beach chairs, snorkelling gear, beach cooler bags, air mattresses, fishing rods...the list goes on and on. We had company for dinner one night and they were staying at an all inclusive in Cabo. They were so impressed with the condo and the location that they are seriously considering booking the studio for a week next January. We plan on returning every year and we are so grateful to have found Bette and Mark's condo. It was very hard to leave! Muchos Gracias Bette and Mark!

Great value and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the one-bedroom unit during Feb '13. I would consider going back again. The La Jolla condo area is laid back. The condo felt a little more traditional (colorful and fun) than other more modern condos but had everything you needed to have a nice stay. It felt like a friends house instead of a sterile hotel.

We really liked the balcony and double sliding doors. We kept the doors open whenever we were home to enjoy the nice breeze and SOUNDS OF THE OCEAN. Sleeping with the ocean sounds was the best, and you could WATCH THE SUNRISE LYING IN BED as you wake up in the morning. Really cool.

Bette was really nice to work with while booking the condo and was accommodated a special request nicely.

The LOCATION is good. Very short walk to the beach. Easy taxi/bus access, and spa services next door at BelAir, a few small restaurants very close and the "Mega" is about a 10 minute walk on the beach if you need a few groceries.

Check out the whale watching tours our of the San Jose Marina (they picked us up at the condo) or hope you see some while fishing out of the Palmilla beach.

If you are new to Cabo and are looking for somewhere chill and reasonably priced, this is it. We had a great time.
