Los Barriles house description
Our Los Barriles home is worlds away from busy resorts. Each day is dictated by time, tide and season but the natural beauty of desert and sea is constant. The warmth of the water... the visible universe... the tranquility...instant attitude adjustment!
Almost all days are sunny and the ocean welcoming. Schools of fish patrol the reef located directly in front of the house. Sometimes we sit under the palapa and watch as the sea-life moves about. Sometimes we put on our snorkels and join in. In less than 15 feet of water we see Cortez angles, red snapper, octopus, starfish, cabrilla, puffer fish, the list goes on. We can explore the shallows for hours...just waiting to be surprised by what we see next. Turtles, pods of whales, dolphin, rays, roosterfish...it's all right here along with the pelicans, frigates and osprey.
The winter season brings the winds. Windsurfers and kiters come from all over the world...whether you are a participant or observer it is thrilling and beautiful. Hiking, diving, biking, world-class fishing, or just reading (or writing)...this is the place to do it.
We designed our home for a couple or a family to be equally comfortable. The interior and exterior flow seamlessly creating a total indoor/outdoor experience. Spacious and modern, the ambience is casual, easy, simple and spectacular. Perfect for Baja. The entire front of the house is glass doors, exposing huge blue skies, the expansive terrace and the never ending changing colors of the sea. Every room opens to the ocean. The main house contains the living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom and bath, guest bath and laundry. The two adjoined bedrooms (one with 2 queens and the other with one queen) share a bathroom and are accessed from the exterior walkway (hacienda style).
Watch the occasional kayaker, kiter or standup-paddle-boarder pass by while you fix a cup of coffee or see the boats returning after a day of fishing...you can see it all from the kitchen sink! The kitchen is fully equipped (Dacor cooktop with 14,000 btu and Thermador oven) and the propane plumbed barbecue is always ready to create the perfect snack or feast. Depending on the mood and time of day enjoy meals at the dining table, the kitchen bar, around the beachfront palapa, under the covered terrace or on the sand. The local stores offer a variety of supplies, fresh fruits and vegetables. It's even possible to have a pizza or grilled chicken delivered. Or maybe you just want to make a margarita and call a caterer.
Amenities include a fireplace, 42' flat screen TV, Dish Network satellite system providing East coast/West coast reception, DVD/DVR, Ipod dock, wireless broadband. Water for the entire house comes from the city and then passes through a filtration/ultraviolet system. Overhead fans in all rooms. All mattresses encased in allergy/mite protective coverings. Two kayaks at your disposal. The entire property is walled allowing secure parking and privacy.
Cruise the coastline, hike the hills, explore the tidepools, ATV through the arroyos, eat fish tacos at El Viejos or stay secluded and sit under the palapa with a cerveza, iced tea or limonada. You may find yourself overwhelmed.
We are 15 minutes north of Los Barriles. Our manager is local and will meet you in town or follow the coastal road until you find yourself at our house. You have almost run out of road, things get few and far between and this is the place you want to be.

Wonderful stay over Christmas with kids and parents
Wonderful stay over Christmas with kids and parents
We spent a fabulous Christmas and New Year's at Casa Johnson in Los Barriles with our two small kids and my parents. The house is simply spectacular, with incredible ocean views from all bedrooms. It's simply and elegantly furnished and very comfortable -- big fluffy down comforters, nice towels, etc. There is a ton of comfortable outdoor seating for reading, lounging, and dining at night. Specific things that were great about this place for us: - layout - two of the bedrooms are very close but somewhat separate from the main house, so with a baby monitor we could enjoy a noisy dinner without worrying about noise waking the kids - kayaks provided were top of the line and great for the ocean there - kitchen is incredibly well- equipped with lots of nice stuff and sharp knives! Important for us since while there are some good restaurants in the area we ate most of our meals at home The house is right on the beach and we did enjoy swimming from the beach. Depending on the time of year there can be some rocks on your way in - easy enough to wear water shoes or sneakers. Overall this was one of the best rental properties we've ever stayed at, and my family does lots of traveling. If you are looking for a quiet spot to relax with family in Los Barriles, you can't go wrong here!

Year Purchased: 2000
About: We took our first diving trip out of La Paz on the Marisla in 1977. It was the beginning of a long-time fascination with the Sea of Cortez. We purchased a home 3 miles north of Cabo San Lucas and with our 3 children spent as much time as possible diving, snorkeling and exploring the sea for the next 12 years. It was an amazing time but as the town began to grow around us we discovered we were in the path of Cabos' first golf course. We decided it was time to move on...to leave Baja. As the years passed by we realized how much we missed the quietness, the remoteness, the adventure and the simplicity of life in Baja. After an absence of ten years we knew it was time to return.
Why Los Barriles:
Having spent so much time in Baja Sur we knew the Pacific side and the crowds of Cabo were not for us. Our place would be on the calmer, warmer, more inviting Sea of Cortez side..the East Cape. We found many locations that were spectacular but were too remote, too far off the grid, too inaccessible. When we saw all that Los Barriles had to offer we knew it was for us. It's a pueblo with good water, reliable power, well stocked stores and populated by friendly, hardworking locals...rustic with conveniences. So we found a beachfront lot on a single-lane coastal dirt road where the mountain drops into the sea and again began building our 'home away from home.' We wanted privacy but not isolation and have found the community full of interesting, independent and supportive friends... another gift of being in Baja.
