“Best hidden gem in San Jose”
Villa Just got back from sunny Los Cabos. Writing this review one week after returning from a two-week vacation. These reviews are really for the property and not things that happen or things that are going on around it. As you all know Cabo suffered a hurricane back in November 2014. I have seen firsthand the major work that is been done and the area is still as beautiful as ever yes there are issues on getting to the beach and a few lost trees. but the beach it still accessible! Now I would like to talk about Shona and the Villa. This villa has everything and then some. from the beautiful heated pool and hot tub, to a new gas fire pit, The garden and trees are all beautiful. The villa is very secure. It is close to all major activities such as dining, shopping, golf, beach. Shona makes sure that the Villa has all the amenities towels,bedding etc. she really goes over and above to make you feel like family! This year will be our fourth visit with her and many more years to come! Shona kept us informed with the hurricane cleanup efforts with photos and emails, so there was no apprehensive about going back! I would totally recommend Shona and her properties to any of my friends. She really is a gem can't wait to go back next year Sincerely Katie, Brian, Michelle
Response from the owner Hola and thank you for your review and kind comments and taking such good care of Casa Shona. I am so glad you still enjoyed your stay even with the remnants of the hurricane and I truly look forward to welcoming you again. Take care and have a great summer. Regards, Shona
“Home away from home”
This is year three with Shona we now only go to this villa every year!! The villa has been upgraded with a heated pool and it's like bath water amazing. Also the jacuzzi has been redone and is also wonderful! There it not a think that I can say wrong we had a wonderful time see you next year Cabo and Shona we will miss you oxox
Response from the owner Thank you dear Katie for your kind words and I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I look forward to seeing you next time! Take care, Shona in sunny San Jose :-)
My parents and I had the pleasure of staying at Casa Shona over the Christmas holiday last year. Shona was awesome...she personally greeted us and had some fruit, snacks, and beer stocked for us. During our first 3-4 days we experienced a few maintenance issues (including having no hot water), but Shona was on top of everything and all issues were fixed immediately. My parents absolutely loved sitting out on the terrace watching the birds and listening to the fountain. The private pool was great!! The house was very nice, comfortable and inviting, well-stocked, and located in a quite neighborhood. The location was perfect...easy to get to downtown Sjdc, the Mega, Wal-Mart, the beach, everything really. We had a fantastic time! Thanks so much Shona for everything.
Response from the owner Thank you for your review and for taking good care of the villa. Have a great autumn! Best wishes, Shona in sunny San Jose del Cabo
“Beautiful Property Exceeds all Expectations”
We stayed 15 days at this fantastic villa in San Jose del Cabo and everything about the experience was above and beyond. We have tried vacation rentals in Canada and the us before and have always been disappointed by misleading pictures, dirty & rundown properties, nickel & diming fees, and customer service that disappears once they have your money. Happily, we have now found a perfect spot that exceeded all of our expectations! Working with Shona was simple and straightforward. She was always quick to respond and very pleasant. We found this rental to be great value. The house is large and roomy. It is very clean and well-maintained. We were impressed by the frequent pool and yard maintenance, as well as the twice weekly house cleaning service at no extra charge. The property itself is huge, with beautiful garden areas (teeming with bougainvillea and roses) and multiple outdoor lounge, eating, and patio spaces. The pool was larger than expected and for a minimal charge, Shona heated it up to 88 degrees for us, which enabled us to use it day and night in January. Having this great private backyard and pool really made our holiday special. The house is conveniently located within walking distance to the beach, the Mega, the estuary, and downtown's shops and restaurants. We had rented a car but it would not be necessary if you weren't comfortable driving in Mexico or wanted to spare the extra expense. The house comes well-stocked, including drinking water, all soaps and paper products, high quality linens and towels, and even a supply of cold beer, juice, fruit and snacks to welcome you. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone and plan to return as soon as we can. Thanks again Shona, for letting us stay at your wonderful villa.
Response from the owner Thank you greatly for your review and for caring for the villa .... you are welcome back anytime and I look forward to seeing you again. Best regards, Shona
I stayed in the top Casita which is situated in the Shona Villa grounds but very private from the main house and has its own entrance, garden, and a lovely plunge pool which I used every day. I had a one bedroom casita with a large balcony overlooking the golf course. Everything I needed for my comfort was there for me. Close to the Mega store for groceries and a $5.00 taxi ride home. Check out the clothing stores in the Mega Mall ladies! I ran every day along the estuary by the Holiday Inn and this is also a nice way to walk to town. If you are looking for activities, boat rides etc check out MJ Majical Tours they are the first small building on your left as you walk into town. Most helpful. Santa Maria beach is a short bus ride or car ride away and well worth the visit for swimming safely, and snorkeling. For added convenience there is a small store for groceries at the end of the Shona Villa road, and a nice little stop for breakfast and fresh OJ. Thank you Shona - a holiday to remember. Maybe next time I will bring my husband!
Response from the owner Thank you Janet for caring for my property so well. Great to hear how you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to seeing you again and to meeting your husband! Happy Holiday Season!
“One of the most amazing spots in cabo”
My Sister,Husband, My son and I booked this villa online. It was the first time ever doing this so I was a bit scared, but shona was easy to deal with and made me feel safe in booking she arranged everything our transfers, stocking the villa the only thing I had to worry about was airline tickets. We arrived everything was beyond all our expectations the place is beautiful, private, safe, we only ate out once. everything was in great working order with no problems, we even had our own BBQ, hot tub, and pool. we used shonas electricial bill and golfed cheap as locals, we were a 3 min walk to the most beautiful beach, a 10 min walk to the mega store which you can get everything you need and prices are cheap. we also had a small courner store 2 mins away so if any of you reading this review has second thoughts book it you will not be disappointed! We went for two weeks and are booking next year and we have had lots of friends book! Thanks shona your our gem in cabo
Response from the owner Thank you Katie for taking care of the villa so well and I look forward to welcoming you again! Have a great summer.....
“Great vacation rental with a great location.”
Our stay at Shona's Villa was wonderful. The house is clean and spacious as well as beautiful, the kitchen well stocked, lots of towels and linens, and a very private back yard with a pool. We felt very safe and secure in the house and also where ever we went. The location is perfect. Five minute walk to the beach, ten or fifteen to the Mega Store and twenty to some good restaurants. Shona was very helpful and was even good enough to pick us up at the airport. We would book with Shona again without hesitation. (Hopefully next year!)
Response from the owner Thank you and I hope we do see you next year in sunny San Jose del Cabo! :-) Also I thank you for looking after the home so well...Have a great summer.
This home is wonderful, just as shown in the pictures, the location is fantastic, beach, stores, restaurants, golf and town centre all within walking distance. Some of the most beautiful swimming and snorkelling beaches are within a 10 minute drive. Our days varied from exploring beaches, remote areas of the Baja to never leaving our pool. Shona was very accommodating, easily accessible and a wealth of knowledge. One of our best vacations ever. We will definitely return.
Response from the owner Thank you and I look forward to seeing you again in sunny San Jose!
“An amazing surprise!”
When we arrived Shona was there waiting for us. She had beer in the cooler, chips, etc on the table and counter with dips, fruit on the counter. Shona has an information package that includes restaurant recommendations, where to go and what to do. Very useful. House is stocked just like your home, actually has more appliances than I do. Lots of towels and change of sheets if necessary. A large home with absolutely everything in it. Wirelesss internet, televisions, i-pod dock, you name it, it is there. 3 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, just lots of space for all of us. Very comfortable clean back yard pool with pool toys, the pool guy came in twice in our 3 days there. Housekeeping is included. Drinking water is supplied. Very private yard. Short walk to the beach, although not a beach you can swim at. Most of the beaches in Cabo you can't swim in. We came from our time share in the Grand Mayan which is minutes away. To get a cab, my husband just walked down the street to the nearest resort and hailed one to meet us at the house. The Mega (large grocery store) is within walking distance and the town is a 5 min cab ride. Cheap $5.00. Can't forget one of the most important items, she has the softest toilet paper I have ever used! I totally recommend Shona's property, you will not be sorry.
“Casa Shona is a fabulous spot and great value!”
We had fantastic stay at Casa Shona. The house was perfect for us (3 adults/ 3 young kids). There is a lot of space both indoors and out. We had almost all our meals at the outside table which is well shaded and very pretty under the trees and flowers. The pool was perfect and we used it constantly with the kids. The master bed/bath is really nice too - very big. The other bedrooms are smaller but absolutely fine. We stayed home many days but also made the easy drive to San Jose del Cabo for lunches/ dinners (there are excellent restaurants in San Jose) and hanging out in the square. Plus it was easy to drive to Cabo and to all the gorgeous beaches in between. Shona herself was fantastic - she picked us up at the airport (for a small fee, which is totally worth not dealing with the hassle of organizing a taxi, and she organized a great babysitter for the kids when we wanted to go out). We loved it. And will very likely go back - which is not something we typically do.
