About Rick Tyrer
My wife Kim and I have lived in Los Barriles for 13 years and absolutely love it here. We are both Kite Boarders and I also enjoy the great fishing we have here. Kim is very active in the local community and is the acupuncturist at the Spa de Cortez
Rick Tyrer purchased this House in 2013
Why Rick Tyrer chose Los Barriles
We purchased the lot the house sits on in 2007 because it is in such a beautiful and unique setting. We decided to start building in 2011. We broke ground late that year and have just finished construction in March of 2013
What makes this House unique
The peaceful isolation says it all. No other houses around, just the beautiful Sea of Cortez as far as you can see.

This home is absolutely amazing! We opened all the sliding doors, set the hot tub, turned on the music and never left! So relaxing and peaceful. The guys fished from shore, I went paddling and hiking. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking for a large group. Highly recommend! We’re coming back!
Beautiful place on the water
Beautiful view, and huge kitchen which makes cooking a joy.
Excellent swimming in front of the property.
Fantastic paddleboarding and snorkelling.
Keep in mind that the beach is rocky so you have to wear sandals/crocs.
The owner was quick to respond to my emails and was helpful.
Keep in mind a couple of things:
1. follow his directions carefully on how to get there as Google maps is misleading (I had put in Punta Pescadero in google maps as the property is about 5 mins south of it) and Google sent me on a bone rattling route to the property. I lost 3 fillings in the drive ;-)
2. the internet was temperamental during our stay but we had good cell phone reception almost the whole time.
We love staying at this property. It is peaceful and gorgeous with plenty of room for our family. Our children enjoy exploring the beach, where there are many beautiful seashells, coral and rocks to explore. The sunrises off the back patio are breathtaking and I enjoy relaxing and looking out at the water for the occasional pod of manta rays who like to jump and belly flop about a half mile offshore. The home is clean and well supplied with linens, towels, washing machine, etc. This is our second stay and, other than flies, have not had any issues with critters. Highly recommend!
Fantastic Remote Location near Los Barrilles
This place was is right on the water & has a lovely view. The glass doors in the front open to create a feeling of great outdoor living. We loved the main room, courtyard and master bedroom. The house is remote, but we loved the feeling of being out on the ocean by yourself. The house is close to Punta Pescadero, a beautiful place for snorkeling!
We had a rather unabated mice problem. They were relentless. When we reported it to the host he sent someone out with a few traps, but that didn't help much. We ended up having to put our food in the car each night. Also, although the kitchen was beautiful, the kitchen amenities were pretty sparse - if that sort of thing is important to you.
Overall - a fun & beautiful place to spend a week in Baja.
We appreciate the overall nice review of the property. As for the mouse problem. Just prior to the arrival of these guests, we had a work crew on site for several weeks and they left behind many food scraps that we believe created this temporary situation. After our guests departed, we embarked on an aggressive eradication program that has proved to be successful. All subsequent guests have reported no problems. We have even specifically asked recent guests, and there have been no signs of mice whatsoever. In regards to kitchen amenities, I guess this is a relative, individual judgement. One of the things that has always gotten glowing reviews from previous clients is how well the kitchen is supplied with quality cookware and appliances.
Really great home and location!
We really had a great time at this home.
Very nice accommodations.
Rick was a pleasure to work with!!
Wonderful house. Very responsive owner
We have already rebooked the house for the x-mas holidays!
Located 7 miles north of Los Barriles is Casa Concha. It is 1 mile south of Punta Pescadero and has its own very private and quiet setting. The spectacular ocean front location is ideal for snorkeling, kayaking, SUP, and fishing from the beach
