There are few places left to enjoy beachfront living without the crowds, at a reasonable cost, with all of the comforts, as Los Barriles. It is an area likened to 'Cabo' in the romantic days.
Waking in the morning to the sounds and sights of the sea is very special. Casa La Polola is fully equipped and has internet access. It is uniquely situated to enjoy the beachfront views from every major living area. Whether watching a pod of dolphins swim by or roosterfish closing in on bait just off shore or whales breeching with their calves, the view is perfect. You can sit and enjoy the spacious veranda, the upstairs observation deck or have the same view comfortably seated in the great room or enjoying breakfast or snack at the kitchen bar.
Newly built, the house is equipped with a state of the art water system to provide sanitized water to the whole house. An extra bonus comes with reverse osmosis in the kitchen and master bath. Appliances are all new with a special 'Advantium' microwave-convection type oven, conventional stove and dishwasher. For those of you who just need a blender for those special beverages, all small appliances are also there, even the coffee bean grinder.
The house is a Mexican experience with artefacts from all over Latin America decorating the interior. Talavera sinks in the bathrooms are a tribute to the wonderful artistic tradition of Mexico.
Close to town, there are many activities available. Besides beachcombing, there are horsebackriding, ATV rental, seasonal fishing and windsurfing, diving,(The reserve at Cabo Pulmo is world renown.) snorkeling, and even tennis to name a few. The house is equipped for your use with sea kayaks, boce ball, tennis rackets, cards, books, and horseshoes you can set up on the beach right in front of the house. A surround sound system is installed for your cd/dvd and TV enjoyment.
The house is also walking distance to the new world class Pickleball resort, Tres Palapas. They have a great coffe bar and smoothies after an early morning beach walk.

About Gayle and Peter Kehrli
We first fell in love with the East Cape area when my husband arranged a surprise wedding anniversary at a local resort, which happened to include his fishing gear. We so enjoyed the area, we returned a couple of years later and decided to look at property for fun. When shown the beachfront lot and the neighborhood, we made almost an instant decision and bought it. We have never regretted that choice. Now we have a lovely house, beachfront, in a naturally beautiful area. We are definitely 'water' people and we enjoy snorkeling, fishing, diving, and just plain watching the dolphin swim by.
Gayle and Peter Kehrli purchased this House in 2006
What makes this House unique
Our house has all of the amenities that you would expect in the 'states' including internet access. When we built it, we wanted to maximize the beach and ocean views. We wanted a light and airy house with lots of windows and skylights. The veranda area is large and spacious, and we spend lots of time in the comfortable chairs there and eating outside. The nice thing is also that you don't have to be outside to enjoy the views. We bought comfortable furniture to sit inside and enjoy it also. You can walk outside down the steps and go snorkeling and swimming right in front. The kayaking is great on a glassy water day as you can see hundreds of fish as you paddle north or south. It is just a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the U.S. All in all, when we return to our home in San Diego, I am ready to go back to 'LB'.

What a Great Place
We were two couples staying in Los Barriles for a couple of weeks. This high quality house is fully equipped and spacious with lots of architectural character. The back patio is perfect for the location with lots of room, plenty of furniture, and an amazing view. The beach is around 200' deep from house wall to water with a mix of sand and rocks near the house and small smooth rocks near the water. There is a rocky bottom for the first 50' or so in the water with a few boulders to be avoided but no problem for swimming etc. if you wear booties. We are kite surfers and this beach was very usable but rocky'er than the beaches just 5-10 min drive south. The property provides two kayaks with paddles and life vests which is a lot of fun on calm days. Beach walks are great, especially north. The landscaping is very nice with lots of beautiful plants and was maintained a few times during our stay. There is a very good water filtration system in the house so tap water is perfectly good to drink. The wifi worked great. The beds are very comfortable and the master bedroom is nice and large with a big walk in closet two sinks and a wonderful tile shower. There is also a stairway to the roof which was fun to use for sunsets and sunrises. The neighborhood is very up scale and it was perfectly safe to leave items in the yard and beach. The property is gated and there is plenty of room for two cars in the driveway. It is an 8 minute drive to the center of town where there is lots to do. However the Tres Palapas Resort is an easy walk from the house and has a great restaurant, coffee bar, pickle ball courts, and bike rentals. There is very little activity on the stretch of beach by the house so the level of privacy is wonderful. We loved our stay and hope to return in the future.
Thanks for such a great review. We should have you write our intro. Gayle
Great location wonderful house! Had everything we needed for a wonderful weekend with friends.
We are glad you enjoyed the house.
Beautiful House with a Beautiful View
The house was perfect for our family of 6. There is everything you could possibly need here and more. The back poarch over looking the ocean is breathtaking. We ate breakfast out there every morning. The house is out of town a bit but we loved the privacy. The beach is rocky so bring water shoes. Its a great beach for beach combing. If you have never been to Los Barriles you will love it. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The owners of the house are wonderful to work with. Best vacation ever!
Thank you for sharing your home!
Home is even nicer in person than the pictures. We used the kayaks everyday and there were hundreds of fish that you could see through the clear water. Pack water shoes because there are lots of rocks to enter into the water. Otherwise the beach is beautiful and the water was warm and calm. Thank you for sharing your home!
Great Location and Wonderful Floor Plan
We enjoyed this beachfront house for a week. It was a family vacation with our two boys (both over 30) and the location was great. Town was not far away but far enough to be "away from it all." We've rented other houses in Baja and as dusty as it gets there, kitchens can get a bit grungy when combined with cooking (grease). The kitchen was very clean and organized. The floor plan was perfect. The living room, kitchen and dining room is one open space and looks out to the beach. We'd stay there again.
We are glad you enjoyed the house. When we built, we wanted to be able to enjoy the ocean view so we faced the kitchen out. We also like things clean. Thanks for noticing.
Beautiful property, right on the beach. We snorkeled right in front of the house, kayaked through the manta rays, and had fishing boat pick guys up three houses down the beach at boat ramp. The drive to town was short w great restaurants every night. Kelly (quad girl) in town hooked us up with a side by side for a day which was great to get off beaten path (even though Los Barriles is off beaten path). Two of the bedrooms have private bathrooms which was great for us as we had two couples. I think the I only thing missing was lounge chairs for tanning but not a complaint. We would rent house again for sure, great location, great house!!! Thank you.
There is a new Pickleball resort within walking distance. We now have 2 sets of horseshoes. Bocci Ball, smash ball, tennis rackets, snorkeling equipment, floaties, ...
