About The Owner

My father was a career army officer and purchased the first condo completed in La Jolla, to come down and fish for marlin. He loved the fishing and I loved the majestic beach so he and I used it the most. He passed away and I have been maintaining and using the condo to keep this jewel in the family.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1987

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing! We stayed 4 nights for my husbands birthday. Lisa, the is owner of this condominium, is a great communicator and she provides you with valuable information on nearby restaurants and how to get around this beautiful area of Cabo. The view is breathtaking and we enjoyed listening to the waves crashing at night. The beach is perfect and we loved the private area for LaJolla residents and renters. The condo was very clean upon arrival and we had everything that we needed and everything worked properly. Although we did eat out everyday during our short stay, the condo is equipped for cooking if you need to but does not have an oven. We loved the pools for relaxing! It was so quiet and we basically had it to ourselves. WIFI is available by the pool area if you need it. We enjoyed many nearby restaurants that had very good authentic foods thanks to the recommendation from the owner, and if you get tired of Tacos or other Mexican cuisines, there is a neighboring Dominos Pizza that a short walk up the hill, that came in handy on a day that we just wanted to relax at the condo. There is a subway and McDonald’s in the area. There were other restaurants in the area that catered to Americanized foods as well. All the restaurants we dined had menus in English and Spanish so it made translating what you wanted easier. Transportation was easy! We walked and we took the local buses because they were a cheaper option. Taxis are readily available but can be a little pricey. We explored San Jose Centró and took the bus to San Lucas Cabo. The bus cost us $3 one way to Cabo and was cheaper for shorter trips within the San Jose area. We felt very safe on the bus and around the property of La Jolla. The locals are super nice and they will help you if you’re lost and wait staff in the restaurants were very helpful. The condo is located next to a hotel. Lisa advised us of the hotel activities upfront. They have Karaoke on some nights but they have an agreement with the property that it must end by 10pm. During our stay the hotel did abide and the music stopped by 10pm. It didn’t bother us and we made the best of it and was pretty entertained by the awful singing :) To conclude, our stay was perfect for us and we can’t wait to visit again. Thank you Lisa for being such a graceful host and for sharing your piece of paradise with us!

Everything we Expected

  • 4 of 5

Location Location Location we loved the view from the balcony. Our February 1-18, 2018 stay at the condo was a perfect transition from staying at an all-inclusive to a condo vacation. The condo was bright , clean and comfortable and had all the necessary amenities. We enjoyed the peacefulness around the pool and the fantastic beach. We were lucky to see whales & dolphins playing in the Sea of Cortez. The staff on the property were very welcoming to us and helpful. We found many restaurants within walking distance. There is easy access to San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. We felt very safe both at the Condo and the surrounding areas. We look forward to returning in the future and would hope to rent this condo again. The only recommendations we would have is to provide a BBQ and private Wi-Fi in the unit as the Community Wi-Fi is not consistent. Doug & Christine (Calgary, Alberta Canada)

Nice condo in an ambivalent location

  • 3 of 5

We stayed 4 days after a demanding trip.

Positives: 1/tastefully furnished , very pleasent condo , with everything we needed

2/ocean view

3/nice and quiet outdoor area around private condominium pools

Negatives: 1/ close proximity of a cluster of bars, restaurants and the pool of the

neighbouring hotel, with noise all aftenoons, evenings , twice over midnight

2./ one of the facilities is only few meters distant, and in the same level as the

balcony- you may watch the guests eye to eye and vice versa , when sitting there

Wonderful vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We didn't have any complaints about this property. You can leave the door open at night and hear the waves, and watch the sunrise from bed. The condo has a wonderful view and is close to the beach which you practically have to yourself. It's a beautiful beach with only a few vendors and they are not pushy. The condo has been remodelled and is very comfortable. La Jolla is a beautifully landscaped property with good security and is very peaceful except for some minimal noise from the hotel next door.

Amazing View!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time in San Jose. The condo was just as described. Views were amazing! There is some noise coming from the hotel next door but it didn't bother us too much. We had a couple of issues with the A/C which Lisa Marie addressed promptly. The condo was very clean and the pool area's were beautiful . Highly Recommend Sardina Cantina which is well within walking distance of the condo. We had the best meal of our entire trip there! The crab cakes are amazing!
