About Jane Mitakides

Our family lives in Dayton, Ohio, and we have owned this beautiful home in Mexico since 2001. With two adult children, we love having friends and family here and enjoying this very special place in Mexico. John is a graduate of The Ohio State University. We redecorated in 2012. It's perfect!

Jane Mitakides purchased this condo in 2001

Why Jane Mitakides chose Chula Vista

The peaceful, spectacular view of the Sea of Cortez -- plus the sound of the waves rolling in -- made this a perfect spot. We love being at the San Jose end of the 'Cabo Corridor' (Cabo San Lucas is about 12 miles away), where the restaurants are fabulous and there is a thriving art community. It is safe, quiet, pristine -- recently called 'the safest spot in Latin America' -- and handy to everything! And, depending on the time of year, you can watch the whales migrate into the Sea of Cortez right from the terrace.

What makes this condo unique

We are the first owners of this property, and designed it to be our home. We have brand new flat screens TVs with satellite service; top-quality American appliances and beds; quality in every detail. But it is the view and location that make this place so special.

A most excellent stay and fantastic vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful time and a great condo. We had a great stay and wonderful experience from the moment we arrived. The grounds staff are friendly and any small issues we had with the unit were immediately taken care of by on-site management (kudos to them). The complex is quiet and well maintained and the people staying here are very courteous. Wish we could stay longer and will definitely be back.

beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this condo. It is breathtaking the views are incredible every room that you go into you have a view of the Pacific. Access to go into Los Cabos is easily attainable by using the public transit located across the street. This is a very quiet area of San Jose with the sound of the ocean putting you to sleep I would rent this place again.

Amazing condo

  • 4 of 5

The view is even better once you arrive - the condo is clean very modern and has everything you need. The staff is friendly - pools are warm and clean - we stayed for 3 weeks and hated to leave - had condo cleaned twice paid for it but definitely worth it. Had breakfast next door a few times at the hotel - mostly cooked at condo - Grounds are very well maintained - on Fridays around 2 you can purchase fresh seafood at the condos - we bought scallops - shrimp and grouper - fresh and delicious! There was some construction on other units but in general it was peaceful - without the construction we would have given this place 5 stars. Truly enjoyed our stay and hope to return. Thank you for opening your home - The Lebrijas

Gorgeous right on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was as described. The photos were exactly right. Well-decorated and well-appointed. The condo has a gorgeous view of the pool area and ocean right off the deck. The view was so wonderful, most of the time we just relaxed right on the covered deck and didn't go down to the pool area. The deck was very spacious and had plenty of seating for lounging and dining.

The ocean in front of the condo was way too rough to swim in at the time we visited. The pools at El Zalate were beautiful salt pools. Not crowded at all which I appreciated. There were plenty of loungers/umbrellas and quiet time to swim in the pool area.

The property was very well located but I would still say you need a car. A large grocery store, Zippers and a swimming beach were a two minute drive away. Walmart and the center of San Jose del Cabo were about a 5 minute drive. Can't speak highly enough about the location.

Pleasantly surprised that property managers were very responsive. Answered my emails within a couple hours and answered their phone when I called. They were helpful and easily allowed me to stay a little past the check out time when my flight was delayed. If you're looking for a vacation condo in San Jose del Cabo, I can recommend this place.

Upon arrival the property was exactly as described on the VRBO website.

  • 5 of 5

Our women's group rented this property for the second week of January. It was exactly as described on the website. Clean, nicely decorated and extremely well appointed. Everything you could possibly want for cooking, beverage creating or enjoying the pool was there. We enjoyed the clean pools and had a great time next door at Coral Baja for karaoke night. The property management (Nash Group) were helpful and fun to deal with when necessary. We highly recommend this property.

Car: not necessary

This spectacular condo home is directly on the beach in the beautiful San Jose del Cabo area, a picture-perfect Mexican town with a thriving art community. Great restaurants everywhere featuring traditional Mexican and wonderful coastal cuisine. Two pools and a hot tub are right on the beach. We are also in the heart of the most fantastic golf area of Latin America -- near the legendary Palmilla and Cabo del Sol courses, and many many more. A golfer's paradise. Also home to the Bisbee 'Black and Blue,' the richest bill fishing tournament in the world -- because of the fantastic deep sea fishing here.
