About the property

3 Bedroom - 2 1/2 Bath With Ocean And Mountain Views

3 Bedroom - 2 1/2 Bath (Sleeps 6) Newly built Adobe-style home overlooking the Sea of Cortez. Waking up to the sunrise, you will see why this home bears the Spanish name for "Open Skies". With over 350 days of sunshine each year, your visit will begin with beautiful sunrises over the water and breathtaking sunsets over the mountains. With isolated beaches, you can literally walk for miles along the beach and not run into another soul. Deep sea fishing, excellent for swimming, snorkelling, kiteboarding, windsurfing, ATVing and mountain biking. Located just 400 metres to the water and 1km north of the town of Los Barriles. A convenience store and Taqueria restaurant are a stone's throw down the hill. The home features 3 air-conditioned bedrooms, 2 queen rooms and one with 2 twins (which can be joined into a king with a mattress topper and all king linens), a great room and large kitchen with all stainless steel appliances and a complete water filtration system throughout the home. High Speed Wi-Fi, Satellite TV, a BBQ, free parking, and full laundry are just some of the amenities offered. Los Barriles offers a pleasant retreat from the crowds of Cabo San Lucas while still retaining the access to services that the city offers. Your visit to Casa Cielo Claro promises to be a relaxing escape from the ordinary!

About Michael French

We designed Casa Cielo Claro on a napkin in a restaurant in Canada. From this napkin, we built a home that will eventually become our retirement home. We have been visiting Los Barriles for over 20 years and have fallen in love with the place. We're sure you will too.

Michael French purchased this house in 2007

Why Michael French chose Los Barriles

This property offers an excellent chance to escape from the tourist traps of Mexico while still offering the chance to play tourist if you wish. The beaches are amazing and yet virtually uninhabited. The ocean play and mountain hiking are second to none.

What makes this house unique

Our kitchen is very well equipped with more than enough of everything you'll need. We also leave some snorkeling and sports equipment for our guests to use.

Beautiful Home and Setting in Out of the Way Mexican Waterfront Town

  • 5 of 5

The Casa Cielo Claro offered maximum comfort and convenience in a small Mexican town on the Golfo de California. This beautiful house is located on a hill which faces the mostly deserted white beaches and blue waters which front the quaint town of Los Barriles, Mexico. A magnificent mountain range forms the backdrop. The town center is a short drive away. This house and all its furnishings and appliances were in excellent condition. The owners were superbly responsive to all inquiries. Our week in this house was thoroughly relaxing and carefree. Highly recommended.

We are huge VRBO vacation renters (4-5x/yr) and have never experienced a problem with any of our stays, including several month long vacation rentals in Barilles. We decided to try a new spot, since our family had expanded and we now had a toddler and preferred a larger location. When we arrived, unfortunately the cleaners had not arrived that day to clean and the property was extremely dusty. You could not touch anything without being filthy and my mother in law had a difficult time with her sinuses at night. I will say, Michael was gracious and refunded the first nights stay. Cleaners came the second day and managed to spray down the house and left water seeping into the house, in which we had to move stuff around. As for the house, Positive-We loved the open kitchen/living. Kitchen was also well stocked. Bedrooms were also a great size & really enjoyed the water UV filter. Nice cement deck with great views of the ocean. Location is good for a nice walk into town, but pictures make it look like it is closer to the beach then it is. Large dirt/sand area to run around, but made the place get extremely dirty quickly. Negatives-the location is loud with traffic noise from the road and a goat farm down below. One goat in particular sounded like a kid was crying throughout the day. I will admit, we eventually got used to sound, but there are definitely quieter places to stay in Barilles. I would not say this place is kid friendly. We traveled with a 15m old and was often fearful of the many ~10ft drop offs on the property. There is also one railing that has sticks for bars that I was not very confident in their strength. On departure there was no checklist on what needed to do so we contacted Michael. He asked us to strip sheets& if we had time, run a load & trash/dishes . We did that, ran a load, tidied up and left. Certainly the house needed a good clean, but we had paid a cleaning deposit. 2 weeks later we received our review and received 1 star for cleanliness stating we should have left it cleaner then when we got there. We swept once a day, cleaned bathrooms once, was always tidy not trashed.He told us everything we should have done(not enough room)which was never told to us beforehand also said we put rocks in the washer and stained a comforter(admitted to the latter, joys of traveling with a toddler & why we paid for damage protection).Don't want other people getting blamed for things they didn't do, especially after paying the amount of money to stay

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Casa Cielo Claro. The house is a good size, well organized and very open. It is equipped with everything you'll need to enjoy your stay. The beds were great, and the downstairs room made a perfect space for our adult son who visited for a few days. The owners were awesome and responded to every question, etc, right away. When we were "home", we spent most of our time out on the porch with the gorgeous view, watching whales spout and play on a few mornings. The stars at night were amazing!

Wonderful stay at Casa Cielo Claro

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasurable stay! Walked into a spotless, comfortable home with everything we could possibly need. Great kitchen so well equipped. We have stayed in rentals with barely enough plates, and cooking utensils but not here. Plenty of everything. Nice bedrooms, the 2 and 1/2 baths, and the 3rd bedroom on the lower level with it's own bath was great. Great view of the beach and coastline from the living area and wonderful patio. Sure took advantage of the patio for Margarita time and diners. The location just can't be beat. Close to the center of Los Barriles , our daughter and son in law enjoyed the 10 minute walk to town, and only a few minutes walk to the beach to watch the kite surfers and the Lord of the Winds kit boarding championship. The owners made sure all our needs were met and such a pleasure to deal with. Michael (owner)promptly addressed all our questions by email and phone, and his sweet wife Jorga checked on us(she was in Los Barriles at the time) to make sure we were happy, and we were. Hated to leave the house as it felt like home. Awesome place for a family or 2 or 3 couples. Hope to return someday!
