My husband and I organized this trip a few weeks in advance of Christmas 2012. We were looking for a centrally located place, but did not want an all-inclusive or timeshare and did not require beachfront property (or prices).
Happily, we found Claire at Cabo Caliente Vacation Rentals. Claire lives in the Marina Sol complex and manages several units for individual owners. The complex is a mix of residents and rental units. She and her staff were wonderful and easy to work with.
We booked #D101. It had recently been renovated and was quite comfy (Some units in this complex are original, with no updating. Claire's units offer a nice selection).
They arranged airport transfers (including a grocery shopping stop) for us at a reasonable price. After our arrival, they also booked a fishing trip (local captain with a panga boat) and rental car for a day in Todo Santos. Both outings worked very well and we were pleased. My husband caught 2 marlin at the same time! Quite unusual and amazing!
The drinks and food at the pool bar were reasonable and the staff was quite nice. There are lots of other dining/drinking choices within easy walking distance. We particularly liked Tacos Gardenias (Claire's recommendation) and Sharkey's (just out the back gate of the condo - great lobster).
Medano Beach was about 1 1/2 blocks, which was perfect for us. We walked the beach several times and caught the water taxi to Los Arcos, but we were glad to be staying away from all the beach bar frenzy and relentless vendors. The marina was just over the hill and was a nice early morning walk for the fishing day.
I'd say this was a great value for what can be a very expensive destination. We will definitely recommend Cabo Caliente Vacation Rentals to any friends bound for Cabo.
