About Irene and Bob DeAndero

We are both natives of Columbus, Ohio. In 2000, Bob's California brother was sponsoring an off road car competing in the Baja 2000-Ensenada to Cabo. He kept telling Irene what an awesome experience it was and how much he liked the area so finally we vacationed to Cabo in 2008. Cabo's fun and we liked Baja's climate and people but the atmosphere's a little too spring break for us.

Looked around and in 2010 came to Los Barriles on vacation. Fell in love with this unique, laid back, easygoing town's deserted beaches, friendly people and the many adventures to be had in the area. For the next 3 years we used all our vacation time coming here as often as possible. When it cam time to retire in 2013, we sold our house, sold or gave away most of our belongings (Goodwill and family & friends loved us!), and hit the road for a one year adventure in LB, after which we planned to return to the US and buy or build in Arizona.

After 6 months renting, got to talking to a local real estate agent at Smokey's Cantina and looked at a few houses for sale. After that, of course, we were hooked. I mean, hey, this is Arizona with an ocean!

The most rewarding aspect of living here is the friends we have made. There is a tight knit community of gringos who help each other out with advice & how-to's and the local Mexicans couldn't be more gracious and accommodating . We have a lot of respect for them and their culture. Happy, tolerant, hardworking and friendly people. Always ready with a smile or a joke and to help out when one's in need.

Irene and Bob DeAndero purchased this house in 2013

Why Irene and Bob DeAndero chose Los Barriles

We must have looked at 20 houses before seeing Casa Querencia. It stood head and shoulders above the others mainly because of the finish accents, attention to detail and lovely landscaping. And the awesome pool, of course. We're excited to share it with our guests.

What makes this house unique

You will look a long time in this area before finding a more beautiful property. The builder added quality and had the foresight to add the features that make it a truly livable and usable place.

We do live on premises but are pretty quiet. We know you value your privacy and wouldn't dream of infringing on it but if you want to chat about the area, you, us, whatever, we're up for it. Half the reason we're doing the rental thing is to meet some nice folks.

A wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay. We have been coming to Los Barriles for nine years and have stayed at several different places, so far, this has been the best. It is located North of the main downtown area, so, you will need transportation. For those unfamiliar with Los Barriles, the internet reception is sketchy but that is the nature of internet service in this area. It has only a kitchenette with separate small refrigerator and freezer, electric skillet, coffee maker and stainless BBQ and is workable to fix meals when you wish but don’t forgo the many local restaurants. We used the hot tube at night under a full moon but did not use the pool due to the chilly water, which we could have had heated. Irene and Bob were great and are there to help. Their two dogs wonder around and are very gentle. They are great companions even though they live upstairs. The landscaping is park like and you are encouraged to pick and use the lemons, grapefruit and oranges. I would recommend to couples and to families alike.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jenny and John, for the kind words. We really enjoyed having you. We've ordered a wifi range extender to hopefully mitigate some of the sketchy reception.

Ziggys casa

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Los Barriles was wonderful. Our hosts Bob & Irene were very warm and welcoming. The home was very comfy and clean. Ziggy the dog was a sweetheart. The kitchen was basic, but had everything you needed to make a meal.

Beautifully kept, comfortable and great location.

  • 5 of 5

This trip was an awesome introduction to Las Barreiles thanks to Bob and Irene! The casita is beautiful, well appointed and perfect for a few days or the maximum stay. We loved being near town, close to the ocean and very near the Pickleball resort! We’ll be back!

Lovely place to stay in LB

Nice property, safe, clean and well-taken care of. The hosts, Bob and Irene, are very nice and helpful. Lucie and Ziggy are sweet older dogs who like to occasionally say hello! We enjoyed our ten days of total relaxation.

Perfect getaway in private oasis

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this gorgeous tropical home, and Bob and Irene were perfect hosts. We could not have asked for more. From the pool and hot tub, access to snorkeling gear and quads, and cute outdoor kitchen (and wifi) we had everything we needed for our vacation.

It's also worth mentioning this home has an impeccable view of an incredible night sky! We've never seen so many stars! This home was such a sweet score, and we can't wait to stay again.

Thank you for making our trip absolutely perfect!
