Once inside this wonderful Hacienda, you can't help but be amazed by the all large windows and glass doors bringing the impressive views of the Sea of Cortez inside.

For those of you who prefer to sleep in, you'll have to settle for hearing about them. They seem to say”Welcome to Casa Afortunada, this is going to be a great day.”

I live in Oregon, but have been traveling to Los Barriles since 1996. I knew I felt a draw to the village and wanted to own a property and be part of the Baja life. I love it there so much I decided to get married at Punta Pescadero, about a 40 minute drive north of Los Barriles, in 2015. When it's time for me to retire - guess my husband and I will fly south with the birds and make Casa Afortunada our full time home. There is a magic in Los Barriles, a wonderful mix of foreigners blending with the local Mexicans. The local Mexican people have been so gracious and patient with us all coming down - trying out our Spanish in their restaurants and stores. I love it here, and the local people.
Owner/Manager purchased this Estate in 2006
Why Owner/Manager chose Los Barriles
Casa Afortunada is built on a double lot making the property feel large and roomy, while giving you the privacy you want and expect. You don't find this in Los Barriles on the beach front, most homes have far less meters of frontage. This estate is by far the best Villa in town. Offering a pool and spa that is out of the wind, while adorned with great views of the courtyard garden with its lush palm trees. The fact that every bedroom in the Villa has a view of the Sea of Cortez, makes not only the guest staying in the Master Suite happy but their guests as well. Waking up is easy when you can see from your bed the sunrise every morning. Every bedroom having its own full private bathroom is what you expect when staying in a Villa like this. The bonus is everything in town is within walking distance. It is a must stay. Come experience Los Barriles with our view, I think you'll like it.

Best vacation EVER!
Went on family vacation. Can’t recommend this house enough..Great location and management staff. Rented an side by side ATV. (Recommend) Entire family agree best vacation ever. Special Thanks to Lupe for a authentic Mexican meal and great chef!!! Thanks for sharing your home with us!!
Best House Ever
Over the years we have made many trips to different locations in Mexico, but we decided that this is our favorite house of all. The grounds are spectacular and well cared for. The house is within walking distance of pretty much everything you need in town. The patio overlooking the beach is a great pace to watch kite surfing and the occasional whale that passes by. Linda was great help. She answered questions, came early to help with a delivery from Baja Baby, and provided us with helpful insight on what to do. The house comes equipped with pretty much everything you need to enjoy your trip (the only thing missing was the promised six pack of beer in the refrigerator). Our party of seven enjoyed the spaciousness of the place for those times when we needed to be away from each other. The pool and casita area gave us a welcome spot away from the winds that blew hard on a couple of days.
Thanks Randy for the review - looks like I dropped the ball on the 6 pack - Next time you stay I'll make it up to you !
It was our pleasure having you and your guests stay at the Villa.
The house is very beautiful and well located right on the beach and within walking distance of everything. The spacious deck provides a panoramic view of the water. The manager, Linda, was very prompt at addressing any issues. We were very happy with our vacation there.
Enjoyed our stay
House, property and proximity to the beach are exactly what you expect based on the pictures!! Linda and Jay (property managers) were amazing! Super helpful and always accessible for questions. Town is so friendly! Can’t wait to go back. We were 4 couples and it was perfect. Everyone had their own space but the great room, pool and patio easily accompanied the whole group.
This casa was Awesome! Loved the large living room & kitchen, and we spent a lot of time on the back patio overlooking the ocean and having cocktails. The beds were very comfortable and both the main house and the guest had new air conditioners that kept the houses incredibly comfortable in August!
We swam out front in the ocean and saw lots of fish and even small manta rays jumping for bait in front of the house. We also took the quads towards Punta Pescadero and did some incredible snorkeling!
We had 5 fathers & 7 sons stay at Casa Afortunada for 6 days the beginning of August & couldn't have found a better house and location. Linda and her son(The managers of the house) were incredible! They had 6 ATV's delivered to the house, had chips, guacamole, quesdilla's ready for us AND had the refrigerator stocked with drinks and items we asked for-all before we arrived! Linda also arranged for 2 different chefs to come to the house and create incredible mexican dinners for us on two different nights.
I would recommend this property to anyone who wants some additional space to relax and unwind- right on the ocean.
