“A Sanctuary in San Jose del Cabo”
Reviewed 24 October 2011

I just got back from a stay at Posada Chabela. This is a very charmng and tranquil place, away from all of the Cabo tourists and hassle, I thought I was visiting an old friend's home. Owner, Rose Ann is extremely charming, friendly, helpful and kind.
The casitas are artistically and comfortably furnished with a private patio... like a little sanctuary in a tropical garden. It was absolutely spotlessly clean and the common kitchen had every amenity you could want, including fresh juices and baked goods in the morning.
The pool was perfect and the short walk down the hill to the beach, was easy and fun to do every morming. Private, peacefull, a wonderful escape....this was one of the highlights of my visit to Baja!

Room Tip: All the casitas are different, private and comfortable.

Last summer, I had the good fortune to accidentally discover Posada Chabela --- http://www.posadachabela.com/ --- high on a hill with dramatic ocean views and across the street from Costa Azul and Zippers world famous surfing beach just west of San Jose del Cabo looking south over the blue Pacific. I met up with owner Rose Ann Solazzo and stayed one night in one of her beautiful casitas; earlier that day I had signed a 2-month lease in Cabo San Lucas.

This gay friendly, beautiful property consists of 4 stand-alone casitas each providing a bit of screening in a tiered, garden setting. Posada Chabela is not a “gay” resort; it simply caters to all people and all lifestyles. So if you crave privacy, intimacy and a small boutique resort owned and operated by a wonderful lady, then this is the ONLY place in the Cape you should stay. Just read a few of the other reviews and visit her website. All lifestyles are welcome --- depending on the presence of other clientele, she says portions of the property allow for being comfortable in a clothing-optional lifestyle. The salt water pool affords complete privacy. Unfortunately I did not get the chance to try out being naked. During the summer of 2010 I did wind up discovering a number of nude beaches in Baja, but that’s another story for another day and another thread. Contact me if you have questions.

Rose Ann is the proverbial “innkeeper” tending to all her guests’ needs. She welcomes both gay and straight visitors. Her style is to mingle with guests, both cooking and eating. She is a wonderful person and gracious host. The two of us I wound up sitting in the outdoor dining area and chatting about many things. And we’ve since become friends. Rose Ann is a blast and we spent one very long day together driving a circuit tour of the cape by car from San Jose to Los Barriles to El Triunfo to La Paz to Todos Santos and back. What fun we had! She is a treasure trove of information and contacts of all types.

I strongly encourage Cabo visitors to consider staying here. Prices are very reasonable and are less than the “major” name-brand resorts. This little hideaway offers a pleasant change from the usual “cookie cutter” mega resorts in Cabo San Lucas. I shall be returning.

Room Tip: Top 2 provide more privacy if you wish to be nude.

What a wonderful place to stay! RoseAnn was a wonderful host and added to the experience. We stayed in the Damiana for 7 nights, and loved every minute of it. The location is just outside San Jose and about 25 mins away from San Lucas (we were not impressed with this city in general). We rented a car for half the trip, but were able to get around and into San Jose very easily without.

This property is actually across the street from the beach, but a short (5-minute) hike down a sandy path will take you right to a nice beach. There are actually a couple restaurants within walking distance too. Great hiking just off the property too.

I would suggest staying in the Damiana or Dahlia units, as they are larger and have private bathrooms.

We definitely plan on returning! Thanks RoseAnn!

Sweet RoseAnn gave us very personalized attention, coordinated side trips and suggested restaurants and activities that were terrific. The grounds were beautiful, well kept, clean, scenic. Enjoyed being out of the thick of things, laid back setting. Very enjoyable, relaxing vacation. We hope to return soon. A great value.

We both booked 2 days in advance before christmas and stayed another day as it was so relaxing. RoseAnn made us a great breakfast each morning while the hummingbirds were around us.
Best place to stay certainly after arrival from oversea flights. green and relaxing with great views on the ocean.
Thx RoseAnn!
