Guestbook comments from the owner

Gary was reading one of his favorite magazines, the Western Outdoors News, when he came across an article about the East Cape and the great fishing that was going on down there.

Bill Karr, who had written the article, also mentioned that he had a home there and could line up all the right people to ensure us a great time at the East Cape.

Well, it was our first time to Los Barrilles and we were looking forward to getting away and trying our hands at hooking a golden dorado. I have to admit I was a little concerned about not staying at a hotel. I didn’t know for sure how our accommodations would be, and I knew if the accommodations weren’t good it could make for a long stay.

Needless to say, we couldn’t have been happier with Casabelle-- she is a great place to spend some time and it was fully loaded with all the comforts of home, especially the great air conditioning, which was a big concern for me. The house was in a great location near a hotel that was ready at all times to serve you at the end of your day, not to mention you could walk to the beach.

In fact, that’s where fishing guide Manuel Lucero of Tio Pablo Sportfishing picked us up. We were able to walk to the beach and Manuel had a panga waiting for us and he would be our captain for a half day trip.

We hadn’t fished out in the open sea before, so we only wanted a half day. And to be honest, I was looking forward to a relaxing day. But, it couldn’t have been more than 20 minutes and something was hooked. Gary and I weren’t sure what it was--we just assumed it was a dorado and we were excited. It happened so quickly, I figured we might be home sooner now. But that thought was quickly gone when we saw something JUMP!

I didn’t know what it was, but Manuel yelled out “marlin!” Then the work began. By the time Gary reeled that marlin in, it had been over 2 hours. I can’t tell you how exciting it was to see Gary battle that marlin and to finally get him into the boat. It’s something I will always remember.

It was such a great time there in Los Barrilles, and in our home-away-from-home, Casabelle.

Wonderful place to stay in Los Barriles!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from February 26 to March 15, 2017. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Spa Buena Vista and this property. Easy access (walking distance) to the beautiful beach. The property is wonderful and Bill is readily available to answer all questions and concerns. The neighbors are great too! We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful Small Town Mexico charm

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Casa Bell in June 2016 and we couldn't have asked for a better vacation away from it all. It was my husband and his Brother and his wife. This home has all the amenities one could need. There is a wonderful mango tree in the yard that dropped fruit for us and we gathered the mango's every morning we were there for mango margarita's, which we drank every day we were there. First thing in the morning I would get up and take a short walk to the beach and swim in the ocean. The ocean water is so clean and blue and watching the sunrise while sitting on the beach was so peaceful. We rented a 4 seat atv while we were there and took the road up to Punta Pescadero and ate an appetizer at the bar and did some snorkeling. This was my first time snorkeling and we saw many beautiful colorful fish. Another day we went fishing with Captain Javier and caught Tuna, Wahoo and a couple of sharks. This was an unbelievably wonderful trip. Sadly 2 weeks after this trip my Sister In-law passed away but we are so grateful to everyone who made our trip there such a wonderful experience and how lucky were we to spend such quality time together in this lovely place. We will always be able to carry around those special memories with us. Who could ask for more. Josephina of the property management and Giovanni were some of the kindest people you could meet and gave us great information and connections for things and places to go and see. There are many great places in Los Barriles to eat. One of our favorites was Caleb's Café and the Pizza Palace also was great. I would completely recommend renting Casa Belle for a week and getting away from it all.

Small Town Fishing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My father and I saw an ad for this property in Western Outdoor News. Shortly after viewing the information we contacted the owner, Bill. He responded within a few hours and once we learned what a perfect fishing location the area was we booked our stay that night. Upon arriving in East Cape we were greeted by the property manager, and right away we were in love with the house.

Set just a two minute or less walk off the beach the house was inviting and relaxing. We stayed for 7 days and with the help of Bill booked fishing with a local gentleman, Manuel, from Tio Juan Sportsfishing. Out of the 7 days we fished 4 of them and each time Manuel met us outside the house with the boat and we rode down to the water. Each trip we caught fish that fought us tooth and nail to get them on the boat. First day we caught 3 Rooster Fish, each over 35 pounds. The next few trips were filled with catching rock fish, Pompano, Dorado, Bonita (great to use for bait) and Red Snapper. Sadly no Marlin but we say them jumping after our bait.

The house itself was perfect for the two of us and had a large stand alone freezer which we filled with our fish filets. Bill kindly provided a vacuum sealer for us to seal the fish up and freeze, bags are not included. The bedrooms and bathrooms were fully stocked with linens and toiletries. Upstairs there is a deck that is perfect for sitting out on in the evening having a cold brew. Just up the road less than 5 minutes is Los Barriles. We went there for groceries and dinner a few times. The locals are very wonderful, sweet and enjoyable to talk with. Our favorite location was the local pizza place, yes you read correct pizza, Lighthouse Pizza. If you want to go for a walk the beach feels like it stretches on forever and is just breathtaking in the early morning and evening. Up the 1 Highway about 45-60 minutes is La Paz. There you will find even more entertainment, fishing, shopping and dining.

Any questions about the house, location or fishing don't hesitate to email the owner. Bill answered all of our emails quickly, was help and was a real pleasure to talk with. My father and I can't wait for summer months to come again so we can set up another unforgettable fishing trip.

wonderful place to getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Belle is perfected located just off the beach in the most amazing area of mexico. A short 1 minute walk puts you on miles of deserted beaches. With crystal clear waters. If your a fisherman, there is outstanding fishing from shore or hire a local guide to reach the big tropy fish in these water. During our stay we hired Manuel Lucero, who lives just down the road. In three days of fishing we landed a 300# blue marlin, tuna , triggerfish and a 7 foot shark.10 minutes puts you in town with wonderful restaruants, crocery stores health care and shopping.

We rented a car from the airport and drove 45 minutes to the home. When we return we will contact one of the shuttle services and theb have a 4 seat atv deliverrd to the front door. There is a place intown that does this. For a little more then the rental car, you can then drive miles and miles on the beach or cruise into the mountains. You wont find a more relaxing area to spend your vacation or a more wonderful house to base from!

Lovely place in a wonderful spot

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Casabelle for a lovely month in Dec/Jan 2014/2015. The house is quite comfortable, with two full sized bedrooms and another that we used as an office (though it has three trundle beds). The neighborhood is very friendly, with lots of nice folks (head down to the Hotel bar for cards most days at 4!) -- it is a few blocks walk to the beach with beaches that stretch for miles in either direction, almost completely deserted. Spa Buena Vista is nice if you like being outside of the hustle and bustle of Los Barriles, but can still get there quickly for restaurants, grocery stores, and so on. We liked it so much, we are going back later this year ...
