About Arthur and Nancy
We live in Whitehorse, Yukon in Canada. We have lived in the north for 41 years and raised our family here. We love the north but also love getting away to our lovely condo in San Jose del Cabo, BCS, Mexico, where it is always warm and sunny!
Arthur and Nancy purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Arthur and Nancy chose Mauricio Castro
We fell in love with the San Jose area while on vacation during Christmas of 1998, and decided we wanted to own a vacation property there. After looking at all our options, we chose El Zalate, which was just being built at the time. We chose it for the spectacular beachfront location, the views, the small size of the development and the quality of the construction.
What makes this Condo unique
Unlike time-shares and hotels, each of the 70 units at El Zalate are independently owned and therefore every unit is different and reflects the tastes and style of the owner. El Zalate has a good number of year round owner occupants, which helps to create a real sense of community, unlike traditional resorts. This is not a "party or resort atmosphere" so it is ideal for families.

Awesome condo with spectacular view of the Sea of Cortez.
This was our first time in San Jose Del Cabo, and this condo did not disappoint. Everything was as described. The pictures from the balcony do not do the view justice. Very quiet and relaxing. Wonderful place for a family or couples. We decided we wanted to extend our stay for 5 extra days, and the owner, Arthur, was very easy to deal with making that happen. Some days you could see rays jumping out of the water. The pools and beach are just steps away. I would highly recommend to anyone.
Thank you for the great review. We're glad you guys had such a good visit, with lots of sunny and warm weather. We appreciate your understanding when the building's electricity was turned off for several hours for equipment maintenance, and are glad you were able to extend your visit. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Thanks Jeff for the positive review! We're so glad that you and your family were able to stay with us. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.
Quality Property and unit
Great property and unit. El Zalate is a quiet complex with a very nice pool and great beach access. Good for couples and quiet families. Plenty of beach to walk for hours. Arthur is great to deal with and the unit is clean and spacious. We spent most of our time on the spacious balcony which has an awesome view. The staff and grounds are all excellent. Enjoy your stay.
I'm glad your family enjoyed your stay in our vacation home in Los Cabos. We do try hard to ensure everything is perfect for our guests and appreciate the feedback. We know it was busier than usual for the first few days as it was spring break, and El Zalate attracts a lot of families. It was a pleasure hosting you and we look forward to doing so again in the future. And good luck in the playoffs to your Flames!
Everything is here, as this condo has everything to make your stay perfect. You will live on the patio enjoying endless sunshine and its spectacular views, Their guest book is full of local recommendations to help you enjoy your stay. El Zalate has a very friendly atmosphere. The pool has lots of seating to enjoy the pool. Can't wait till next year!
Ty and Cheryl, thank you for the lovely review. We appreciate your feedback, and always look forward to having you as our guests.

Quiet location, perfect for a couple, or adult friends
We had a great experience with this property. We were there the first week of May, and the complex and beach were nearly deserted. The pools were fantastic. This is not a swimming beach, but Zippers is a short walk, and you can swim in the ocean there.
We have been staying nearby for years, at a resort. This was a great alternative to the hustle and blaring music of resorts in Cabo and San Jose.
The only issue I had was with the master bed. It needs a new mattress. There is no TV in the master, either. Not a bad thing, but if you are used to having one in the bedroom, it's different. The home is comfortable, and inviting, not fancy, but homey and everything is provided. There is 24 hour Security, and Cesare is wonderful. I highly recommend this unit at El Zalate. The owners were wonderful to work with. We will be back to this lovely spot.
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your holiday at our El Zalate condo. Although we enjoy a firm mattress, we will examine it on our next visit and consider replacing it, based on your input. (It is now November 2016, and based on Dawn's feedback, we have purchased a brand new king size Sealy posturepedic mattress with a gel topper.) Regarding swimming: the Playa Costa Azul is a good swimming beach from mid November until early April, when the prevailing winds allow, but not later in the year. We are seniors and average ability swimmers and swim quite frequently off our beach. It's best to swim at "slack tide," the transition between the tide coming in and going out, when there is the least amount of undertow. Because there are no lifeguards at our location, we recommend swimming in pairs with a buddy, and always base your decision on the conditions at the time.
The Mitchell's condo El Zalate
We love staying at El Zalate. The location is great to walk to the Mega and many amazingly inexpensive restaurants. The cable in the condo is awesome. We are huge college basketball fans and we are always on vacation during the Final 4. We are able to watch both days of games.
There is a book in the unit to help with everything from food, golf, unit rules, who to call for help, emergency, etc.
The condo is great for 2 couples. We each have our own bedrooms and bathrooms. We ate outside on the patio. the kitchen has everything you need. We made many meals in the unit. A nice full size kitchen to serve our needs. Beds were comfortable. good pillows to choose from. Each room has a ceiling fan.
The patio is our favorite place to hang out and visit. being on the 4th floor the breeze allows you to keep doors open and be comfortable.
Arthur was very helpful in answering all my questions. We added 2 extra days last minute and he was super easy to work with.
We are planning to return again.
Thank you Maria for the wonderful review. We are so pleased you and your friends had such a great holiday. We appreciate your business, and look forward to hosting you again in the future.
