We spent 2 1/2 weeks at Casa Shona and could not have had a better experience! Shona has this down to a science. From the welcome basket and refreshments upon arrival to the informational book that helps you navigate Los Cabos, everything is perfect. First the house sits at, in my opinion, the best location in all of San Jose del Cabo. You are literally a few minute walk to the public beach. In fact you can hear the waves crashing at night as you sit in the hot tub enjoying evening cocktails. The location is close enough to walk to the two supermarkets in town or to walk into the Centro. If you are not in the mood for walking, taxi stands are right at the end of the street. Secondly the house is tastefully decorated and the grounds are immaculate. Shona has a pool guy and gardeners stop by twice a week to keep everything sparkling. Next is just how well appointed the house is. You will want for nothing as she has thought of everything you might need, right down to beach towels and chairs.
The house is very spacious with plenty of room to spread out. We never used the air conditioning as the cool breezes off of the Sea of Cortez start every evening. The beds are very comfortable with two kings and one queen. The internet and cable worked flawlessly although you probably won't need it. Shona is very responsive and ensures that any issues were addressed quickly. We only encountered one issue with lighting the fire pit the first night and she quickly showed us the ropes. The things we enjoyed the most were the mornings in the hot tub, walking to the beach and taking a dip, afternoons in the pool and evenings around the fire pit. One tip, if you are here in the winter months pay the extra to have the pool heated. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit, thanks Shona!
House was wonderful in a nice quiet neighborhood, it was great having our own pool and house to ourselves. Only a 5min walk to the beach and about 20min drive to Cabo. Would love to visit again sometime in the future.
Our group of 6 (2 adults, 2 teens and 2 grandparents) had a wonderful week. The house has everything you could want/need for a relaxed vacation. We ate all breakfasts and lunches at the house, and used the gas grill to prepare a few dinners. La Comer, the nearest grocery, was convenient and inexpensive (and had amazing fresh chips and guacamole). Our family had plenty of space to spread out throughout the house and outdoor living area. Our favorite thing about the house was the outdoor dining area, pool and outdoor fireplace. Shona was a gracious and helpful hostess, she responded quickly to any questions we had. We walked many times to the beach and the nearby Plaza Pescador shopping area, and also walked home from the center of San Jose del Cabo a few times. We would definitely stay again at Casa Shona!
Easy walking to shopping, beach and restaurants. Great place for multiple family members and children. Wonderful pool and gardens/patios.
Quiet neighborhood, 2 blocks from beach & restaurants. Our group was three ladies, so 3 bedrooms were perfect. Kitchen had everything to cook full meals. Great to come back from a day of sightseeing and relax by the pool or in the hot tub. All of us had a great time. Would love to return!
The house is very clean, spacious and well maintained. A well equipt kitchen and an outside BBQ functioned smoothly. The beautiful garden setting and pool area are in full morning sun and partial shade from mid-afternoon.The owner is prompt and very accommodating, making our stay a pleasure, very quiet and relaxing.
The house is centrally located close by shops and resturants and has a golf course fairway at the south end of the property. The neighborhood is quiet with no noise issues both during the day and evenings. We enjoyed a peaceful, very relaxing stay with exceptionally beautiful sunny weather!
