"This was our first trip to Cabo and our first time using VRBO, and the bar has been set high! This property is definitely luxurious - so clean, so comfortable, and everything you could need from dish soap to Qtips was provided. Like most reviewers, we did have a few nights of trouble with the street noise, but ear plugs made it a non-issue, and our kids in the 2nd bedroom slept right through it. The hot tub on the roof was a huge hit -we used it every morning and evening. We also loved having a washer/dryer in the condo. We were MOST impressed with Hugo & his team, who went above and beyond to help us feel completely taken care of. They set up all of our activities, made our reservations, arranged transportation - we had zero stress about anything. They responded to emails and phone calls within minutes, and always came through on every promise. We trusted them completely. Medano Beach was wonderful - very clean and safe for kids with no big waves. It was great having the beach within walking distance (5 minutes), but we felt the walks to Walmart and the Marina were too long in the heat, so we took taxis everywhere. After exploring the other areas of Cabo, we were very glad we chose this location, as we felt we had more of an authentic experience than if we had stayed in a resort surrounded by other Americans. Being able to speak some basic Spanish proved helpful, but most of the people we met spoke at least a little English. Our favorite water activity was a snorkeling tour with Cabo Blue - the crew was so much fun and they took beautiful photos for us. We left the boat with a CD of photos of the whole family in front of the Arch and snorkeling all together. It was an extra $40, but by far our best purchase of the week! We also loved participating in a turtle release - a once-in-a-lifetime experience.(Tip- arrange transportation for this through Hugo's team - you don't want to be dealing with taxis once you're 40 minutes up the coast in the middle of nowhere). Also, don't plan on using credit cards for much besides Walmart and restaurants. You need cash for all transportation, taxis, water activities, umbrellas at the beach, etc. but there are lots of ATMs around. All in all, this was a fantastic family vacation!"
