Beachfront Villa in Punta Pescadero, Perfect for Reunions with Family or Friends

Bedrooms 6
Space 4,000 sq ft
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 2-16)


If you’re looking for a beautiful villa in a five-star location, if you want a secluded getaway where you can wake to a glorious sunrise, relax on a beach that’s virtually your own and count shooting stars at the end of another perfect day, we have just the spot.

Casa Alvarado is nestled in a cove on the Sea of Cortez in the small resort community of Punta Pescadero, a 30-minute drive from Los Barriles.

The main house sleeps up to 12 people in four spacious bedrooms: two on the entry level and two down below with private entrances. On each level, one bedroom has a king bed and bath; the other has two double beds and bath.

Casa Alvarado also has two stand-alone casitas. Each one has a bath and four double beds, two on the entry level and two in the loft. This added accommodation makes our property ideal for reunions, corporate retreats or special family occasions.

From the main house, walk out to the patio for our million-dollar view. Descend 20 steps to reach the pool, chaise lounges, ping-pong table and outdoor eating area. Descend 30 more and your toes are in the sand.

You’ll find everything you need in our well-appointed kitchen which has a large island with bar stool seating. And the indoor communal area feels even bigger thanks to our year-round outdoor living space. Being on the cove means that Casa Alvarado is protected from the north winds. So even in winter, it’s warm enough to sunbathe by the pool, read a book on the patio, swim in the ocean or enjoy margaritas at sunset.

Other activities include: ping-pong, snorkeling, shelling, scuba, paddle boarding, kayaking and fishing. A three-minute walk to Punta Pescadero Paradise Hotel adds horseshoes, tennis, basketball, a bar with wide-screen TV and restaurant meals.

Finally, to make your vacation even more enjoyable, we provide free daily housekeeping and property management. We will also help you arrange transportation, fishing excursions, day trips, cooking classes, catering, shopping, an authentic Mexican fiesta or ATV/scuba gear rental.

Find out more about Casa Alvarado! We’re excited to share our home with you and we’re committed to making your vacation a happy one.

Keywords: Private beachfront home with 2 casitas. Option to rent 2, 4 or 6 bedrooms, priced accordingly.

Why The Owner chose Los Barriles

To us, vacationing in Punta Pescadero means leaving our hectic lives behind and taking time to appreciate the simple pleasures -- seeing rays leap from the ocean in the morning light; enjoying an ice-cold Pacifico beer and homemade tortilla chips at the bar of Punta Pescadero Paradise Hotel; kayaking or snorkeling in the clear, calm water of the cove; taking the family to taco nights in nearby El Cardonal; and watching the full moon rise out of the ocean. It also means spending time with the people who matter most in our lives. Casa Alvarado has so much sleeping space, we hope we can accommodate the people who matter most in yours, whether they be family, fishing buddies or old friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

To the beautiful drive along the coast Arriving at the house to be with Those I love the most

To my niece learning to swim in the pool And the gentle breeze keeping the evenings cool

To the marlin and rooster we caught on our line

An experience truly once in a lifetime

To the clear ocean water right out our door

Swimming with turtles,rays, eels puffer fish and more

To laughter, dancing, and tears of joy Margaritas, cervezas and piña coladas, (oh boy!)

To volleyball games played at night

And the beautiful greeting each dawn made by the sun's light

To Carlos, Griselda, and José's mariachi band

And so many amazing memories

I can't count on one hand

But mostly to you for opening up your home for us to enjoy.

I am so very grateful.

Thank you. My heart is full.

Wonderful Beach Front house !

  • 5 of 5

My family group of 11 loved this house. There are 6 bedrooms which are spread out so everyone had privacy. The location is perfect if you want to get away from it all and enjoy the pool and beach. Quiet secluded beach- great walking and shell gathering. The owner and house staff are friendly, helpful and wonderful to work with. It is not a place to go for restaurants or night life as town is a good 1/2 hour away on a bumpy road but with small children that is not what we were looking for. The children loved the pool and the beach which is sheltered and safe for swimming all the time. Snorkling and kayaking were great. I would highly recommend this house!

This is our second time visiting Casa Alvarado and it never disappoints. This year we had 6 couples staying in the Main House and both Casita's. The layout is perfect for this many people. We had practically the entire beach to ourselves. Carlos came to the house every day and took care of all our needs. He arranged transportation when needed, brought ice, firewood, water and anything else we requested. Grizelda and Lucy brought in a Mexican spread of food on two occasions which is always a treat. The boys loved taking the ATV's to explore the desert and town of Los Barriles while the girls played in the ocean on the paddle boards and sipped margarita's by the pool overlooking the beautiful ocean. We had dinner on the patio at the Hotel down the beach our first night and danced all night to music requests with a fun DJ. Susan is absolutely amazing to work with and helped plan the perfect trip for our group. We highly recommend this place for your next sunny beach vacation getaway!

Can't go past Casa Alvarado!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I arrived in late June and stepping through the front door just took our breath away. What an amazing view and location! Carlos greeted us on arrival and was incredibly helpful throughout our stay, regularly checking in with us and helping with whatever we needed. We spent our days snorkeling, playing ping pong, paddle boarding, kayaking and lazing around the beautiful house. Octavio drove us out to Cabo for a night which was a lot of fun! At night we were treated to delicious meals from Griselda as well as some of the surrounding restaurants, with the Taco Stand and Cielito Lindo being some of our favorites. Casa Alvarado is a great place to unwind and relax with a great group of friends or family and can't wait to come back one day!

50th Birthday Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at Casa Alvarado and wish we never left. The house exceeded all of our expectations.

Leading up to our trip, Susan went above and beyond helping us plan everything. She provided the most gracious assistance I have ever received for a VRBO rental (and I've rented many). We arrived to a warm welcome from Carlos, the house caretaker -- a very sweet and helpful man who came by each morning to check what we needed -- ice, drinks, food, firewood for the firepit etc.

The house provided plenty of room for all 10 of us adults to stretch out, find peace and relax. We each had our own bedroom/bath (very comfortable beds!) and spent a lot of time cooking and talking around the large concrete countertop in the kitchen and dancing. The beach was virtually empty so it felt like we had it to ourselves. We paddled the bay with the SUPs and kayaks and snorkeled the beautiful coral reef full of fish and even a moray eel. The day we arrived we experienced 100s of manta rays jumping and saw many whales over the course of the week.

We ordered fresh cooked Mexican food from Griselda (who also cleans the house -- she brought us 2 excellent dinners), Lucy (yummy tomales & chile rellenos for lunch), Jill at Doughnation (tasty baked goods for breakfast and dessert) and Carlos fetched us some fresh locally caught red snapper that we bbq'd on the grill -- so much excellent food to be had without leaving the property! For a short getaway, some of us rented ATVs from the nearby hotel to drive the coastal dirt road to Los Barriles, a really fun town about 30min to the south (you can pay with credit card). The hotel (5 min walk from house along beach) also makes a killer margarita if you feel like "going out" for a drink at their bar.

Casa Alvarado is nicely situated on the cliff to take advantage of the views and the path of the sun throughout the day providing plenty of places for shade and hanging out in the sun. The private, shaded palapa halfway down the steps to the beach was our favorite morning place to hangout and watch the sunrise. The house is remote (another reason why we love it) but no need to rent a car -- Susan hooks you up with the very reliable, Octavio. He and his drivers shuttled us from and to the airport in 1.5 hours, no sweat.

All of our friends absolutely loved the house and said they would like to return some day. Hopefully soon!

Our family getaway for 15 people

  • 5 of 5

Casa Alvarado is the most enchanting place I have ever visited. Tucked away amidst high cliffs on one side and a sweeping coastline on the other, it is a place where time stops and the days move slowly to the gentle rhythm of waves. We were greeted by the rising sun every morning, painting the sky with a collidasxope of reds, oranges and purples. Wales, stingrays and packs of dolphins seemed to serenade us daily. The house is spectacular and spacious with plenty of room for us to all gather together for quality time as well as retreat to peace and quiet. The main floor has wall to wall glass doors that open all the way out to a huge deck with stunning views of the ocean as far as the eyes can see. The ocean was warm and perfect for paddle boards, kayaking, snorkelling and boogie boarding. The only problem was trying to get the kids to come out of the water at night. Susan, the owner, is an outstanding lady who helped every step of the way. We had some of our meals catered and they were delicious authentic Mexican meals. Carlos the caretaker made every single one of our wishes come true. There is nothing Carlos can not do. We rented ATVs which we drove into town on a few occasions, we went chartered fishing and caught a large Mahi Mahi which we barbecued for dinner and we ended our days surrounding a fire and the most amazing light show of starts. There is a sense of richness that surrounds this magical place. I truly feel like we were privy to a secret place that makes everyone who visits come alive with wonder and a deep appreciation for life.

Birthday Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for my husbands 40th birthday celebration. We had a large group of 6 families and the house was laid out perfectly for everyone to have their own space, including private bathrooms attached to each room/casita. The house "staff" Carlos and Griselda were so gracious and helpful and made each day easy for us. From taking care of basic house chores/room cleaning, laundry, cooking (on request-additional cost), to arranging fishing or private massages, our group was very well taken care of.

The location is slightly remote but well worth the 90 minute journey from SJD airport. The beautiful, secluded beachfront with amazing coral reefs was perfect for snorkeling, swimming, paddle boarding and kayaking (all equipment included!).

The pool was an excellent addition and was just what the younger, inexperienced swimmers needed. The patio overlooks the ocean which was the perfect place to watch the sun and moon rises, which were spectacular.

The owner, Susan, is a dream to work with as she is so kind and wants to ensure that every detail is arranged to your liking. The Guest Information packet they have put together rivals any fancy resort guide I've ever seen!

We ❤️ Casa Alvarado!
