About Renee Shattuck
We are Art & Renee Shattuck and we are the owners of CaboMom Plaza Calafia Condominium. We first visited Cabo San Lucas in February of 2004, looking for a warm place to spend our winters after retirement. We looked at several places but fell in love with the first place we visited in Plaza Calafia. From 10 years we would spend 2 weeks in October, 2 weeks in January and about 10 days in June at the Condo. Our 2 boys absolutely loved Cabo! We have since bought a single family home in Cabo Bello where we spend about 5 months a year. We hope you enjoy our condo as much as we did. Hasta Luego!
Renee Shattuck purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Renee Shattuck chose Cabo San Lucas
Plaza Calafia is located in the Cabo Bello development, a gated community with 24 hour security. The community is made up of mostly retired couples and local working couples. The community is very quiet and friendly; however, is only about 3 miles from downtown Cabo.
What makes this Condo unique
Along with the 24 hour security, you also have an assigned parking space just 50 feet from the condo. There is also a private beach; just a 5 minute walk away. Taxis will also pick you up and drop you off within in 50 feet of your front door. You can also take about a 10 minute walk up to the front gate where you can catch a bus into town for only $1.00 USD.

We stayed at Cabo Bello Plaza Calafia December 17-24, 2017. I traveled with my two young adult daughters and had a fabulous time. The condo was as pictured and met all our needs. It was a great value! The private beach was a short 5-10 minute walk and the snorkeling was so much fun. We spent 3 days of our trip on the private beach and enjoyed relaxing in the sun and snorkeling. We spent 2 days at Medano Beach. Medano Beach was a 10 minute bus ride for 12 pesos each way. We used only pesos and didn’t see anyone paying in US dollars. We got on the bus right out front of the condo complex by Home Depot and the bus drops you off at the front gate (look for small white bus, do not have to say anything about where you are going, the bus will take to towards Cabo and you can simply stand up when you are ready to hop off). Medano Beach was a nice alternate to the private beach as offered all that you would expect (boat taxis, jet skiing, local beach peddlers, restaurants, massages (yes, $20 US for 75 minutes!). We felt completely safe in downtown Cabo/marina area. The condo provided snorkeling equipment, beach chairs and towels. We used Super Shuttle to and from airport. They were on time, clean and professional. The Plaza Calafia manger speaks English and Spanish which was really helpful as they made my confirmation call to the Shuttle service. They took all the stress out of the call as we don’t speak Spanish. Lastly, Renee and Art were extremely helpful before, during, and after our stay. (While, I wouldn’t recommend it, we are proof that you can get back to the States after you’ve forgotten your passport at the Condo!) And, that there are nice people who will return it when found! But, that’s a whole other story. I have no hesitation recommending this condo.
Sounds like you had a lot of fun. Thank you for the great review & so happy you got the passport back. Hope to see you again.

Very nice location. Quiet. Close to everything we wanted to do
Nice location. Easy to access. Great communication from owner. Large BBQ and good WiFi in pool area. Well stocked kitchen. Clean. Short 5-minute walk to ocean and semi private beach. Very polite staff. Thanks for letting us stay a few extra hours! Would return again if we come back to Cabo
6 Days in Cabo
We had a great time at the villa! Very quiet and comfortable. The pools were clean and lovely, and we enjoyed relaxing there. The villa had everything you would need. I was very happy that there was a water cooler. The condo even has 3 tvs with American channels. The white bus to town cost 12.50 pesos, and it came about every 5 minutes. We took it often. You just need to walk to the front of the complex, which was about a hilly 10-minute walk, which I preferred to do that than rent a car. The only con that I can think of is that the pillows need to be replaced. Other than that, I would definitely come again!
Great place to stay! Bright, Fresh and Clean!
SUN, FUN AND GREAT MEMORIES AT PLAZA CALAFIA
We really enjoyed our stay in Cabo. The Cabo Bello complex was easily accessible from the airport or downtown. The busing system stops right outside the complex and is a very good (inexpensive) mode of transportation. Our stay was at the Plaza Calafia condos within Cabo Bello. The unit #184 on the second floor was private, fresh, neat and clean. The colors were bright and cheerful while the rooms were large, airy and comfortable. This unit had two baths. One in each bedroom. There are plenty of towels, sheets and blankets. The kitchen had all the usual and necessary utensils, dishes, and other items to make and serve any meal. The grilling area is by the adult pool and easily accessible. Both pools were well maintained and quite refreshing. The adult pool has excellent WiFi reception. The office for Plaza Calafia is by the adult pool and they are very informative and helpful. There is a semi private beach where you can sun, swim and snorkel. Our unit had a balcony with a beautiful ocean view and flowering trees. Stocked with beach chairs and umbrella, snorkel gear and other beach toys. All you need to bring is your tooh brush! Well, maybe some shorts, tops and sandals. LOL! This place is extremely peaceful and quiet at night. Quite refreshing!
While we mostly ate breakfast in the condo we did visit quite a few restaurants. Villa Serena was a very nice restaurant overlooking the ocean on the property next to Cabo Bello. On the other side of Cabo Bello is Puerta Vieja with a sunset view that is a sight to see. In downtown Cabo we frequented the Italian job and the Italian restaurant. They were equally good but different. We would definitely go back to them all .
Our adventures in Cabo included four excursions. All exceeded our expectations. Whale watching while zipping around on a zodiac boat was so exciting, while swimming with the dolphins was so much fun too. But for sure the highlight of our excursions was going to La Paz and swim beside the whale shark, quite an experience. A bucket list check mark!
All in all our two week stay was just about perfect. We will be coming back for sure and would highly recommend Plaza Calafia to anyone looking for a great private and quiet place to stay in Cabo.
What a great review!! Looking forward to seeing you next year. Thanks so much - Renee & Ary
Everything we need
Our stay was comfortable and convenient, our hosts were available to give us some help and were happy to do so. The views and community are lovely and I would definitely book this spot again. We loved our vacation!
We are so happy you enjoyed your vacation and look forward to hearing from you again.
Cute Condo in Cabo Bello!
This was such a complete condo...stocked kitchen, plenty of space for a family of 5, gorgeous view of the ocean, just a short walk to an awesome uncrowded beach! What more could you ask for?! We loved staying here. It was just perfect for our family! We got most of our groceries at Costco and Walmart and cooked nearly every meal! Day trips up both coasts. Would highly recommend Art and Renee's condo...they were great to work with and quick to respond. Thanks for the wonderful accommodations, we hope to come again!!
So glad you enjoyed Cabo! Hope to meet you if your travels bring you back!
