"This being my first time at Cabo, I was unsure what to expect, so I booked a room at a Hampton Inn that was far
from the beach. My daughter was unhappy about no beach access so I decided to go on VRBO and I found #64182.
After contacting the owners, Erum and David, they gave us a very good rate for a four night stay. The condo is
located in a fabulous resort, Casa del Mar, which is half way between the two towns of Cabo san Lucas, and San
Jose del Cabo. A rental car is needed to stay here and I suggest using Cactus Car Rental at the airport. They are easy to work with and don't have "hidden charges". After giving the owners our information we were able to move into the condo the next day. I still haven't told them how easy it was to book their condo and save our vacation.
Even though it is small (one bedroom, one bath), we had plenty of space to maneuver around and the pull-out sofa
added an extra bed when needed. The bed in the master was firm yet very comfortable with pillows galore. There
was a flatscreen in the living room area and another in the master. There are actually eight pools on site at Casa
del Mar and we usually went to the main pool which was very large along with a kiddy pool and a hot tub. There is
also an exercise room, spa, bar and restaurant at the hotel. The staff is welcoming, friendly and very accommodating. There is also a washer and dryer in the apartment which we used. We barely used the kitchen,
as we mainly ate out in the quaint town of San Jose, which was a ten minute ride from the condo. Although we didn't have time to play, there are golf courses everywhere in the area with more to come in the future. The beach is one of the nicest I've seen but the locals deem it unswimable due to the large waves and strong currents. I spent many days walking the beach and went in the water often but it is unsafe for small children. There are three "family beaches" nearby, Playa Pamilla, Playa Santa Maria and my favorite, Chileno Bay. I saw more fish there snorkeling than any other place I can remember. The condo provides coolers so that you can take your drinks and snacks and keep them cold. The security at Casa del Mar is excellent and we felt completely safe our whole trip-it is a gated resort that monitors everyone coming and going. MEGA, a food chain, is a five minute ride so one can stock up
and cook at the condo if you wish. We mainly had coffee and snacks in the morning and took off all day to the
pool or beaches."
