About the property

Walk To Everything from This Newly Remodeled Home In The Heart Of Los Barriles

From the moment you enter this property, you will be drawn to the tranquility of Casa de la Playa. This property is right in the middle of everything - yet so peaceful! The Sea of Cortez will captivate you from the moment you enter the house. The large deck on front has multiple seating areas for observing the peace or activity of the beach and Sea.

This newly remodeled home has a great connection to the beach - even when you are inside. Yet it is also very private. Casa de la Playa is the first house to the north of Las Palmas de Cortez Hotel in the town of Los Barriles. You can easily walk to town or take the beach cruisers!

This is a one story home and all bedrooms and bathrooms are on one level. There is a solid walking surface from the parking area to the house. We also have a portable ramp for the one step to the house on request.

The four bedrooms are large and the spaces in between are generous and offer a sense of privacy in each of the rooms. The beds have high quality sheets and mattresses and there are closets and drawers in each bedroom so that you may unpack and settle in.

The master bedroom is located on the Sea of Cortez, with a wall to wall sliding glass door to wake to the sunrise (privacy shades included). The master bath has double Talavera sinks and custom Parota cabinetry.

The large second bedroom is peaceful and quiet, with 2 full size beds. There is a TV and DVD player and a collection of DVDs located in the handcarved armoire.

Bedroom 3 has a queen size bed and French doors that open to a large shade area (media sombre) with a wicker sofa set.

The 4th bedroom has it's own entrance. It has a queen size bed, French doors opening to the garden, and a private half bath.

The main bathroom is between bedrooms 2 and 3. It has Mexican tile and a custom Parota cabinet with ample drawers for individual toiletries.

There is air conditioning and fans in each bedroom and throughout the house. In addition, the beach side windows have shades to keep the house cool in the morning, without losing the view to the Sea.

The kitchen is well stocked and looks to the Sea. It opens to the living room with views to the Sea and multiple dining areas inside and out. The kitchen has handmade Mexican tile and custom Parota cabinets.

The deck on the beach side has a BBQ and plenty of sitting and lounging areas where you can look for whales, dolphin and rays jumping. In the morning, you may watch the fishing boats go out. In the afternoons you may watch the kiteboarders or the fishermen returning with their catch.

Off the kitchen, there is a courtyard with another wicker lounge area and table, and the media sombre with lounge seating on the garden side of the house.

Amenities include 2 beach cruisers for riding to town, 2 SUPs and a tandem kayak for your use. If you would like to hit the pool or hot tub, you can walk next door for lunch or a margarita and jump in the infinity pool at the hotel. And of course, the Sea of Cortez is right outside the door, perfect for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and SUPing. There is a private palapa on the beach and two outdoor showers for rinsing off sand and salt.

The house is also equipped with pickleball racquets, ladderball, bocce ball, books about the area, sand toys, throw blankets, and beach towels for your enjoyment.

If you ever want to leave the house, there is plenty to do in the area. The town has many great restaurants within walking distance, including a coffee shop and bars. Many of our guests rent ATVs to get around town and take day trips up the arroyo or to Punta Pescadero. There are mountain biking trails from the house (and a shop in town where you can rent bikes if you like). You can take a trip to Cabo Pulmo for diving and snorkeling. Or go to La Paz to see the whale sharks. There are hikes to waterfalls and swimming holes. Depending on the time of year, you can take kiteboarding or windsurfing lessons, or take a boat out fishing. We can give you more ideas when you decide to go for a visit.

We may have some flexibility for blocked dates beginning in the Fall of 2019. Please request dates in the body of your reservation request if they appear blocked on this calendar.

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been going to Baja and the East Cape for around fifteen years. This time I went with my two sisters to celebrate my 50th birthday. We wanted a high end house on the beach. We found our dream home with this rental. It could not have been more perfect for a restful week of vacation. The house is beautifully designed with various eating and reading areas according to the time of day. The house is extremely comfortable and perfectly set up with all amenities. The layout of the house is amazing - the kitchen is spacious and well equipped , we spent a lot of time there cooking and looking out on to the sea. The bedrooms and bathrooms are large and wonderfully decorated and quiet. I am a very nitpicking and fussy person for bed comfort and bathroom design and I can tell you I have never slept better in a rental. The mattresses were so comfortable and the sheets were soft COTTON! No itchy poly blend as most rentals provide - what a treat! We spent most of our time eating and reading on the huge patio that overlooks the stunning view of beach and water. The swimming out front is the best in Las Barriles. The owner of the house and the caretaker were beyond kind to us and got us fresh fish to enjoy. In short, we loved this house very much and highly recommend it. It is extremely tasteful, uncluttered and the most relaxing home I have ever rented anywhere. Thank you for an incredible visit!

We stayed with our 5 adult children and had an amazing stay. Victor was awesome and handled any requests we had. He hooked us up with quads and horseback riding. We are definitely coming back to this gem!

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and our time in Los Barriles. Our favorite spot was under the palapa on the beach. It provided shade from the sun and there was usually a breeze coming off the ocean. We will definitely be back!

This is a beautiful property in a great location. Wonderful outdoor spaces, both to enjoy the sea and sun as well as relax or dine in the shade if desired. All the bedrooms are lovely. Enjoyed a great stay.

The perfect beach home!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, everyone commented on how comfortable this home is. It is very well detailed and the craftsmanship is beautiful. The beachfront is perfect with a great fire pit for evening cocktails. The sunrise from the master bedroom is amazing and the other 3 bedrooms have their own unique character. The location could not be any better. We rented Quads and kite boarded just up the beach. Los Barriles is one of my favorite spots in Mexico.

Oh My! Oh My! Oh My!

  • 5 of 5

Great week in a beautiful home located in a fun quaint Mexican town! Far enough away from touristy feel of Cabo, close enough that travel distance is not too far, small enough to give an authentic Mex flavor & lg enough you don't get bored, & no language barriers. Perfect in every way for our needs. Who traveled? 5 people aged 40’s-60. My husband & I & 3 single ladies. When looking for a rental we had the following criteria:

Directly on the beach

4+ bedrooms

Air conditioning in the ENTIRE home

Walking distance to entertainment and food so no car needed.

Casa de Playa was the only property we found to meet ALL criteria. Other properties had everything, but perhaps no air in the bedrooms. Air only in main areas. We never used the air due to unseasonably cooler temps (or so we were told), but that's a gamble! Other properties located further down the beach so walking to restaurants etc. was not always an answer. Again, Casa de Playa was the only property that met all 4 of our criteria perfectly & didn't disappoint!

The house was more beautiful than the pics! Small grocery store within few blocks & large store 6-8 blocks further? Several dining options near small grocery store & more options on main road a bit further. No car ever needed! Hired Norma the private chef. Homemade tortilla store by the small grocery store was a fav to make bkst tacos with at the casa.

Rented a Quad for a day of exploring, a 2 person ATV another day, hiking, & casual biking around town with the 1 speed bikes from the casa. ATV companies offered guided tours, but were ok on our own. Many hiking trails in ,the area. Noone knew where trail heads were. Finally found 2 not far from casa. I left instructions in the house manual for where to catch both. Worth it! Gym next door @ hotel=50 pesos/day. Highly suggest subscribing to the Baja Pony Express email newsletter & the Everything Los Barriles Facebook page to plan your travels. Will alert you to local activities such as outdoor movie nt, open mic nt, karaoke, Taco Tuesday & other events. We used Victor for our driver to/from airport. For our arrival we used separate shuttles due to arrival times. Also used East Cape Taxi since we split up. All 5 used Victor to return to SJD.

Only suggestion/thing to point out is there is no standard tv such as CNN, cable, etc. We could have cared less, but for some this may be important. There was a tv and dvd in a back bedroom, but only Netflix.

We used Victo
