Overview

About the property

3 Potential Renters indicated it was the "nicest unit in Terrasol" (they booked)

Location is everything and this unit is in the PRIME location in the most Prime full-ownership enclave comparable in any resort destination. Whatever brings you relaxation, fun or entertainment can be found while enjoying your stay at our private, friendly and gated-community vacation home at Land's End where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean. This is one of the few places in the world where desert meets ocean and where you can witness both spectacular sunrises and sunsets in and out of the ocean from either end of our beach!!

Please note: Terrasol's mandatory taxes/resort fees for all units are not included in our nightly rate-an additional $17.50 USD/ni for 1-2 pers, $22.50 USD/ni for 3-4 persons. We also require that you pay for a weekly or end-of-stay cleaning (only $29.00). These fees will be collected by the front desk upon checkout. There are no other fees other than 5.00/day for parking should you rent a vehicle (not necessary due to Terrasol's enviable location). Moreover, WE DO NOT REQUIRE A DAMAGE DEPOSIT.

STANDARD HI-SEASON RATE IS $275.00/USD/ni, $200.00 USD/ni off season, $250.00 USD shoulder season and $350.00 USD/ni over Christmas/NY's period. These are incredible rates for this unit. Compare with other front row units that have only been partially, or not renovated - their rates are only slightly less than ours for far inferior quality (i.e.: 40.00 USD less and you don't have to believe me; our multiple reviewers who have stayed in other Terrasol units say so...) Moreover, our outdoor terrace is easily twice the size of most with high end furnishings and at least 4 cozy areas to lounge in. WHEN YOU COMPARE OUR LOCATION, OUR OVER-SIZED TERRACE, OUR HI-END FINISHES, COUPLED WITH OUR REASONABLE RATES AND COMPREHENSIVE AMENITIES, you will realize that this unit is the best bang for the buck... We are continually told by renters of other units that they wish they had booked soon enough to obtain ours.

Numerous units purport to have been "completely renovated", yet they still have original hard-to-clean flooring, outdoor style walls, as well as much original woodwork (doors, closets etc) complete with the original, terribly uncomfortable furniture, not to mention out-dated and inadequate electrical wiring and plumbing. We have re-done every last thing, down to the sand, every screw, wire, piece of plumbing; we have replaced everything with high-end wooden cabinetry, travertine flooring and granite throughout. Also, bear in mind that numerous units do not offer the peace of mind of booking on credit cards through VRBO HomeAway payments. Moreover, numerous units only provide one roll of toilet paper and no other amenities or condiments; we have a fully stocked condo with everything from hair conditioner, body wash, bug spray, suntan lotion, fabric softener, printer paper, spices and everything in between (extensive list/details elsewhere). Book it now, before someone else does. You will not be disappointed.

Terrasol is nestled at the very tip of the Baja Peninsula at Land's End, near the famous arches; a spectacular low-rise, low-density, private, quiet and secluded resort.

• An exclusive enclave, Terrasol offers privacy and tranquility, yet is less than 500 meters from the bustling and quaint town of Cabo San Lucas with its exciting night-life, cantinas, restaurants, and shops. Guests will enjoy amenities including 2 heated swimming pools-one with a swim-up palapa bar, tennis courts and a modest work-out room. The famous CSL Marina is less than 200 meters from our condo; you can walk around this marina, past shops, bars, bistros, cafes, restaurants, flea markets and the mall; browse and shop to your hearts' content and then stop for a frosty beverage!!

◦ Terrasol is built 'on' the beach - 500 meters from the tip of the Baja Peninsula and Land's End (and you can't get any closer to the ocean (30 yards) than this unit);

◦ Terrasol has a serene 'honeymoon atmosphere', secluded and private.

- This is a small corner of Paradise where you awake to the beauty of an ocean sunrise and, as you enjoy your first refreshment of the day, you can watch the boats head out for the day's fishing adventure or gaze at the graceful lines of a large cruise ship as it glides by on its way into port. The day promises so many possibilities, whether you desire active pursuits such as swimming in one of Terrasol's two large heated pools (one with swim up bar and palapa restaurant), hiking over the small mountain to Lover's Beach, jogging along our mile long beach unmolested by trinket vendors and time-share sales people, golfing at the numerous near-by world class courses, horseback riding, ATV tours through the mountains and along the Pacific shore, jet skiing, parasailing, snorkeling or scuba-diving at pristine beaches a short distance from town, whale watching by charter boat - or merely lazing in the sun on your own private front-row terrace as you unwind and spend quiet time amidst the serenity of Terrasol's desert landscaping, gorgeous plantings including azaleas and bouganvilla and friendly atmosphere.

When daylight fades, you can step out onto your terrace and watch a spectacular sunset and then head out into the heart of town a short 10 minutes away on foot, where you have a choice of restaurants suited to all tastes and budgets; stores, cinemas, discos, sports bars, party boats and the fun and famous Cabo Wabo and Giggling Marlin or Squid Roe. The choice to eat-in is also easy with a fully equipped kitchen or availability of local food delivery as well as the delicious and reasonable pool/palapa bar offerings which include breakfast, lunch, appetizers, snacks and beverages up until 6PM.

About Joe Power

We, the owners are both retired Canadian Air Force Officers who each served 30 plus years. For the first few years, we wanted this magnificent property all to ourselves; however when we embarked on an 8 month house-exchange trip to Australia/NZ, we decided to begin renting our wonderful oceanfront piece of paradise and have had nothing but excellent reviews and delighted comments, especially from guests who had previously rented other units in Terrasol. We take a lot of pride in providing a worry-free stay for our guests with more amenities than most other rentals.

We promise that you won't be disappointed should you rent our Terrasol condo.

Joe Power purchased this condo in 2009

Why Joe Power chose Cabo San Lucas

We have been coming to Mexico on vacations for 30 yrs but when we finally discovered Cabo in 2009, it epitomized the best of everything we had loved from all the other areas of Mexico. When we first viewed Terrasol and descended down towards the ocean, we looked at each other's reaction, and on those steps, we knew we had to purchase a property there despite the fact that we had been thoroughly enjoying 5th wheeling around Arizona and had no intention of buying in Mexico at that point in time... Both my husband and I felt it - this was heaven. The weather, especially the lack of humidity compared to mainland Mexico, the vibe - it felt wonderful. When we saw units available in Terrasol, we jumped at the opportunity, since they are a rare gem on the Pacific beach.


- Why else? - the vendor-fre
e Ocean-front beach. Surf fishing right off the terrace on the beach. Convenience to everything. Whale watching from the deck with the best margaritas from the Palapa Bar in hand, fabulous sunsets & sunrises right from the same beach. Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of crashing waves and the sun coming up, right from the comfort of your own bed (between your toes). Not only can you lie in bed and watch the whales during migration, but also when the sound of the surf is quiet, you can hear their spouting and splashing. What could be better than that?

This is not a timeshare. This is an opportunity to enjoy one of Cabo's few tranquil beachfront residences with easy access to the bustling town of Cabo San Lucas. It is the best of both worlds. Enjoy active days and quiet nights watching the stars - or enjoy quiet days (without whistles and camp counselors) and party all night. Cabo is so versatile that everyone can do their own thing. Cabo is also very safe, allowing you to walk the town into the wee hours without worry.

What makes this condo unique

You have a rare opportunity to rent this particular unit in Terrasol; it is coveted by many. This unit is all about luxury and comfort. It was completely renovated, right down to the sand-that includes every piece of plumbing, wiring, hinge & screw, every door & frame (unlike many renos done here) and the remodel included the removal of walls and re-design of interior spaces. Moreover, we have retained none of the original, uncomfortable wooden furniture/chairs; they have been replaced with high-end, custom-built furnishings and finishes. You will find a multitude of choices of areas to sprawl out, relax and/or take a nap, both inside and out. Following the hurricane in 2015, unlike many, our condo was completely gutted again, and every piece of furniture and wood was replaced with new, custom-built cabinetry to ensure that there was no mould left hiding in the unit.

Amazing Unit/Best Location/Terrace

  • 5 of 5

We are picky travelers. This place rocks. Not only is it supremely located in the pleasant, quiet, and peaceful Terrasol resort - but everyone we encountered that works there was super nice.

Staying in this condo was like a trip to HEAVEN! It is even more beautiful than the photos and every bit as wonderful as it promises to be. The condo was immaculately clean and everything about it was beautiful. It has all the amenities of home but it felt like we were in a luxury hotel. Anything we could need was provided. The beds and bedding were highend and amazingly comfy making those afternoon Siestas even sweeter! The shower/bathroom is beautiful and we had plenty of hot water for a relaxing shower (they have an oversized water heater compared to other units). The storage is plentiful and we fit all our clothing and personal items easily in the closets and drawers. The view of the Ocean is amazing as were the sunrises and sunsets. Some we witnessed from bed and others from the terrace or in the sand right in front of the condo. Falling asleep or waking up to the sounds of crashing waves is a real treat too. We loved having our own private, huge terrace to bbq, sunbathe, relax and yet the pool and the bar/restaurant were literally steps away. I could order Pina Colada's from Mario while sitting on the deck and he delivered them to me. It does not get any better than that! Terrasol is fantastic and this unit is second-to none!

Spectacular - best unit in Terrasol

  • 5 of 5

First, the Terrasol resort itself is in a great location. It's on a mile or so long semi-private beach that's shared with 4 other resorts (all timeshares) just a short walk from Land's End and the arch. At the same time, it's only a short 5-10 minute walk to the Marina and the downtown shops, restaurants and clubs. This condo has one of the best (if not the best) locations in the complex. The terrace is easily twice the size of many others and the pool and pool bar are right outside the front door and the living room, master bed room and back patio are all ocean front! Just step off the patio and you are in the sand, less than 30 yards from the ocean. Although, like many beaches in Cabo, the ocean currents are too strong for swimming, the sound of the waves crashing through the night was a real treat and I already miss my morning coffee on the patio watching the sun rise out of the ocean and the surf break (or laying in bed and watching it between my toes…) At night, watching the sun set into the ocean in the other direction is even more spectacular. The condo itself was clean, beautifully decorated and furnished, outfitted will all sorts of amenities and luxuriously comfortable. We have stayed in other Terrasol units and they don't even come close (and some were more expensive). Trust me, this unit is spectacular!!

This is the unit you want to be in!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 months in 5 different units in Terrasol and I can honestly say this unit was by far the best bang for our buck!!! Even if it had been the most expensive unit that we rented (which it definitely was NOT), it would have been our favourite - for many reasons - firstly, it was, by far, the most beautifully appointed - the owners did an amazing job of renovating the unit - with top of the line everything - stainless steel, granite - you name it - it was gorgeous - beyond most people's homes. It was only a one bedroom, yet it was incredibly spacious - with a larger kitchen than the 2 bedroom units we rented. The layout was brilliant and the decor was spectacular. We felt the most at home in this unit and it wasn't only because of its beauty - the owners attended to every single detail that you could imagine and they provided extremely explicit instructions including restaurant suggestions. I have never rented a unit where the owner was as determined to provide her tenants with the best possible experience. Every detail was thought of - from providing candles, batteries, writing supplies, a printer with paper and anything else you could want... What I especially enjoyed was the terrace - its magnificent, unimpeded view of the Pacific and the most cozy and comfortable banquette seating areas and romantic lighting of any unit I saw in the entirety of Terrasol!! The water in this unit is purified and is safe to drink which makes carting jugs of drinking water from town a thing of the past. Mario at the Palapa Bar next door was just as friendly and helpful as ever---and the Bar's been remodelled since our last visit.

There is no way that anyone renting this unit could possibly be disappointed in any respect!!

Incredible!!!

  • 5 of 5

Like a previous reviewer, I wish I had something negative to say about the unit, so I didn't have to worry about the property being rented the next time I wanted it, but I can't because there were no negatives for us. As for the location of Terrasol in general, it's a short walk to the marina, shopping, and many excellent restaurants and is on Solmar Beach which my husband and I prefer because there are no vendors. However, be advised that it is also a "no swimming" or "swim at your own risk" beach and there are no water activities, beach bars with live music etc. as on Medano Beach. As to the unit specifically, the description and photos were bang-on, and the location has to be one of the best in the complex as it is truly oceanfront (front row). We did not cook while we were there, so I cannot speak to whether or not there would be everything one would need to prepare a meal; however, the cupboards did have numerous pots, pans, plates, glasses, silverware, etc. In addition, the owner was easy to communicate with and responded to our inquiry and questions quickly. We spent a quiet and relaxing six days lounging on the patio watching the surf, and I would not hesitate to rent this property again.

Looking forward to the next time....

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent a week at this property. The condo is beautifully furnished and well cared for. It is obvious that the owners take great pride in their property, and that their guests' comfort is a priority. The condo is truly oceanfront with a spacious patio that has 2 seating/dining areas, plus a double lounger that's perfect for sunbathing, relaxing, or watching unobstructed views of the sun rising and setting over the ocean. While we did not cook, there appeared to be everything one would need to prepare a meal, including seasonings and spices. Words cannot adequately describe what an amazing property this is. We have already made plans to return!

Our stay at Terrosal was amazing! We arrived a day late, but still an amazing stay.

  • 5 of 5

Our unit can only be described as beautiful! Our stay was shortened by a day because of flights and so we missed a day of the beautiful weather. The unit we stayed in was right on the beach with an amazing view of the sunrise and the sunset with a view of the ocean that was breathtaking! There was everything that you would need to make your stay comfortable. Not having to worry if you forgot anything was a blessing. The unit has recently been remodeled and the did a beautiful job. This was the comfort of home. The pool was right next door with the restaurant and the swim up bar with Mario and the crew to take care if you! He did a great job taking care of everyone's needs. The food was very good and the price was good. We didn't really need anything, but were told if we did, there wouldn't be a problem.

Thank you for an amazing place to make our first trip to Cabo one to remember!

This property is one of 5 resorts located on Solmar Beach; it is the only full-ownership condo complex - the rest are timeshares or fractional ownership/hotel establishments. When you arrive, you will appreciate our Moorish architecture that blends in with the sand and the environment as well as the extremely low-density; we have only one building that is 3 stories at the rear of the complex, the rest are only 2 stories. You will notice acres of sand in between many of the buildings. Despite the growing populations of the adjacent resorts, at any given time, you will only see a handful of people on the beach, thus you will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere (no vendors are allowed on our beach). Yet when you walk over the slight hill away from the resort, you will find yourself in the midst of the bustling marina within a 5 minute walk. Within another 5 minutes, you are in the heart of town among its many bars, bistros, nightclubs, flea markets, kiosks, restaurants, taco stands & shopping areas including a high-end mall. Don't forget to take a water taxi to view the famous Land's end arches just around the rocks at the end of our beach. All water sports are also available on Medano beach, a mere 5 minute water taxi away.
