Los Barriles cabin description

'Rapunzel's Tower' is a 1200 sq. ft., private Casita (guest house) with enchanting views of the turquoise sea and the rolling mountains of Los Barriles. 3 miles from town, it is the perfect get-away from the hustle and bustle of the States.

A 2-minute walk down a magical, meandering arroyo path brings you to a tranquil beach with great snorkeling reefs, kayaking, wind-surfing, kite boarding and fishing.

The casita features dramatic high ceilings and arched windows.  Smooth Saltillo tiles add Mexican charm and beauty. 

The cozy bedroom and full bath are located on the third floor, and offer amazing views.  Downstairs is the kitchen/living room, and right out the door is a family-sized stone hot tub!  There is nothing better than relaxing in the stone bath at night with a cool drink while looking at the sea and the stars.

The two outdoor patios offer beautiful views of the sea of Cortez, and provide a great place for meals, basking in the sun, or just reading a book.

Share our recreational 'toys': 2 mountain bikes, 2 kayaks, and a 12 foot surf fishing rod. One kayak is set up for fishing, and the other is good for touring or wave riding. These goodies are all free!

Windsurfers, kite boarders, surfers and scuba divers: lessons and rental equipment are available. Standup paddle boards are also available at a local rental shop.

Since we have been coming here for the last 20 years, we can direct you to our favorite beaches, mountain bike trails, fishing holes, snorkeling reefs, kayaking trips, private surf breaks, restaurants, and other secret spots.  We love helping our guests have a great vacation!

Kite boarders: our Casita overlooks Turtle Cove, one of the least crowded kite boarding launches. This beach provides one of the few wave breaks in the area.

Turtle Cove also features the best snorkeling reef in Los Barriles. You will see hundreds of tropical fish just a few yards from shore.

Kayakers, our secluded beach gives you a perfect starting point for your ocean adventures. Imagine beginning your day paddling among hundreds of beautiful Manta rays. Whale and dolphin sightings are also common and can provide kayakers with the thrill of a lifetime.

Fishermen! We know who the good skippers are, and can get you a discount on a boat. Excellent guide service is available for fly and surf casting fishermen.

The Casita is close to some of the best beach fishing in the area.  Watch for the pelicans, grab your rod, and go catch some Roosterfish, Sierra, Pargo, and Jack Crevalles. 

If you would like to rent an ATV, we can recommend the best rental agency. For getting around town, and exploring, an ATV is all you really need.  It's also just a lot of fun!  One of our favorite adventures is an ATV trip to the waterfalls. Pack a picnic lunch and swim in the secluded pool, surrounded by beautiful rock formations. Most of the time you'll have the whole place to yourself.

If you're a fishermen, an ATV gives you a huge advantage in chasing down those rooster fish.  Racing down the beach in pursuit of feeding game fish is an adrenaline producing experience!

You are welcome to help yourself to our bountiful fruit trees.  Imagine fresh grapefruits, oranges, limes, papayas, and mangoes right outside your front door.

If you need more space for family and friends, Casa Turtle Cove is right next door, and will sleep up to 7.

Rapunzel's Tower features high-speed Wi-Fi, and a telephone that you can use to call and receive calls from the United States, for free.

Come relax and let your hair down in Rapunzel's Tower!
