Property 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 4 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 the first floor features a huge garage.

Right out the front 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. Since we are located in the banana belt, the winter temperatures are much warmer than other areas of Los Barriles.

Share our recreational 'toys': 2 mountain bikes, and 2 kayaks.. 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. North Beach, another popular kite boarding beach is located 5 minutes south.

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.

If your family includes an infant, we can provide a crib, just let us know in advance.

Please let us know if you would like delicious Mexican meals prepared and delivered to your table. Just give us a couple of days notice.

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!

Owner info

About the owner: We are a family of three (not including our pets!) We moved to Los Barriles from San Francisco when our daughter was 5 months old. We thought we would stay just 6 months, but doors kept opening, and we ended up building our house, working, and sending our daughter to school there. We now have more friends and connections in Los Barriles than in the States. We are currently living in Northern California because our daughter wanted to attend High School in the States. Now, we spend vacations only in Los Barriles. (At least for the next four years).

Why the Owner Chose Los Barriles, B.C.S., Mexico:
After renting for five years in Los Barriles, we decided to build a home. We loved the locations: the beautiful, winding arroyo leading to the sea, the proximity to the sea, yet protection from the wind, amazing view, and kind, peaceful neighbors. We had been visiting LB for vacations and for wind-surfing. It became a favorite of ours because how far away it seems, yet how easy it is to travel there. Plus, it has all the beauty and peace of other exotic places, but also all the conveniences.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
John built the house so that each room would have a view. He wanted high ceilings so people could enjoy the space. The first trees we planted were fruit trees: mango, orange, lime, banana, and mandarin. The thing that made us fall in love with the place was the arroyo which we use as a path to the sea. We swim at least twice a day, so the path is well worn. We love to share our home with people.
