“Amazing place with a truly genuine vibe where you must stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

Lori and Craig, the couple who welcome you into their glorious home are truly wonderful hosts. They suss you out and quickly get what you require, attention or to be left alone with a pointers to what's available. We were a mother and son travelling together, so not an easy combo to accomodate but we will both always hold Casa Contenta in our hearts as one of the best holiday venues EVER. Cabos is a must to travel to if you live in the US, its 2 hrs ex LA, the weather is perfect, it is sunny 360 days a year. The ocean is clean, clear and of so warm and its so easy to find a beach all to yourself or a spot where its busy with heaps of people watching. Cabos is a safe destination, don't lump this place with border townships. Once I get back to New Zealand I will be telling everyone I know to get a slice of heaven and go and have a wonderful Dora made breakfast and luxuriate in Cabos at the Casa Contenta.

We drove up a long sandy road wondering what was ahead for our first visit to Cabo and breathed a sigh of relief as we entered our room as the Casa Contenta. The house is beautiful; the views breathtaking; and the hosts (including the puppy pups) made us feel like we were at home, but with no responsibilities. Dora, who took care of us, was an exceptionally sweet person, who made great breakfasts. We enjoyed our chats with Lori and Craig, as well as sitting alone in the many areas and reading. The pool was refreshing after a hot desert day. And of course, having their canine family members around was a great addition to our vacation. Craig, Lori, Dora, Pasha, Osito, and Solo will make sure that you enjoy your stay whether it is an activity filled week or a relaxing, lazy 3-day weekend. We will be back!

My husband and I booked Casa Contenta after reading all the positive reviews on Trip Advisor, and I am happy to say that we could not have been more satisfied with our stay.
There was no one else staying at the B&B during our stay so we felt that we had our own private home! But it was nice to chat with Lori and Craig who had the best recommendations for where to eat, beaches to visit and other must see sightseeing excursions.
The breakfasts were so delicious and the portions were just right. We especially looked forward to the smoothies.
Renting a car is a must, however there were a couple of nights where we wanted to let our hair down in Cabo so we took taxi's to and from the Casa which was very reasonable at anywhere between $12-$15 each way.
All in all, we couldn't recommend staying at the B&B more highly. It was such a relaxing experience that we hope to repeat again!

if you are looking for a distinguished, super-comfortable, unique place to stay and enjoy all Cabo San Lucas ammenities just minutes away...Casa Contenta is for you!
The ambience owners, Lori and Craig, have created is so relaxing, warm and welcoming.
The views from this superb architecturally beautiful home can not be surpassed. Literally a view unparalled, from high over the town to the Bay and the Arch and Land's End. Rooms are extravagently appointed en suite, with HUGE bath tubs and incredibly comfortable beds. We were encouraged to enjoy the pool, spa, roof top fire pit and BBQ. We did it all!
Waken up to a tranquil surrounding and get ready for fun,adventure and great explorations of the Cabo area. Craig and Lori know all the nooks and crannies of the best places to visit, how to book AND they know all the best restaurants for many miles around!
Before you embark on your days in Cabo you will enjoy an amazing breakfast, delightfully served on the lanai with breathtaking views. The menu varies daily and is substantial and delicious. The Mexican staff at Casa Contenta are wonderful, full of smiles and do everything to make your stay 100% perfect.
I have never written a Review before. I saved it until I found a destination I thought superlative and worthy of my time to write. Casa Contenta takes the cake! If I could I would give it 10 stars!
I will add photos soon.

The owners, Craig and Lori, did an amazing job of guiding us to the best beaches, restaurants, and local attractions. They helped us set up EVERYTHING during our stay....from golf, to massages, to dinner cruises, to home delivered meals. There is no better housekeeper/maid than Dora. She did so many thoughtful things for our group...refreshments when we arrived, cutting up fruit with creative displays, smoothies that were to die for, going above and beyond in cleaning up after us. Betty was a delight as well, and we enjoyed wine, sunsets and her sense of humor. For those of us that are animal lovers, having 3 dogs to pet and play with was an extra bonus. Thank you to our hosts...we would love to come back, as we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you all and appreciate you welcoming us into your phenomenal home (which has picture perfect views and so much room to relax and spread out)!

Our home doesn't look out over the city and water of Cabo San Lucas, but Craig and Lori's does. We stayed with them for four relaxing days at the end of February before heading north to meet with whales and sea lion pups. We had a wonderful time in Todos Santos and La Paz, but we'd booked another night at Casa Contenta before leaving Baja and, when we walked in the door my wife said, "it feels like we've come home." The Harrison's are perfect hosts, available to provide guidance, advice and as little or as much conversation as you might like. The other guests in the five-room home were interesting and compatible, but the home has four levels with multiple places for relaxation on each, so one can easily be alone, too. Go there. Stay there. Just don't take MY room.

My husband and I just spent 5 amazing days at Casa Contenta. The location was great...so close to town but far enough that you could enjoy the view of Lands End and all the cruise ships from their quiet neighborhood in the hills.
Lori and Craig, the owners, are contagiously positive and warm and immediately made us feel welcome. Their travel and restaurant tips helped us get around like locals and the serenity of their gardens, rooftop pool and firepit helped us enjoy the simply relaxing moments as well. Their neighborhood felt very safe, I went for morning runs and was pleasantly greeted by the neighbors and their canine friends.
We really enjoyed the convenience of Casa Contenta's hand picked wine selection and the massage therapist they brought to their home to give us the VIP treatment. But I would be remissed if I didn't say that the breakfast was out-of-this-world delicous and beautiful. We were served fresh fruit as an appetizer for the most amazing french toast and mexican favorites each morning. We enjoyed all the little details too....herbal tea selections and freshly brewed coffee, fresh flowers and fancy place settings with a different view from the deck or dining room each day. They even made a special on-the-go breakfast for our early morning flight on our last day.
I highly recommend Casa Contenta for a relaxing stay with wonderful people, 3 great dogs and complete serenity.
