About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Welcome to our home in Baja! We are located on the Sea of Cortez in the peaceful village of El Cardonal, about 30 minutes north of Los Barriles and 1 ½ hours from Los Cabos airport.

The property is about 2 acres, fully enclosed, and very private. Much of the lush native vegetation has been untouched. There are 2 dwellings: the Casa with 2 bedroom suites, study, living and dining areas; and the Bodega which has a 2 bedroom apartment on the second floor. The Casa and Bodega are furnished with hand made rugs, lamps, folk art, and furniture from Mexico and beyond. Each dwelling has a terrace that was designed to flow directly out from the living area and is the perfect place to enjoy your coffee with the sunrise. There is a lap pool, outdoor kitchen, outdoor shower, and barbeque area as well. The gourmet kitchen in the Casa makes entertaining a pleasure.

We provide kayaks, and paddle boards for those that are interested in exploring the coral reef at our back door. We also have a beautiful sandy beach that extends from our property south for miles. You can windsurf or kite in front of the house with your own equipment or rent it down in Los Barriles. Other activities include fishing, site seeing, horseback riding, and airport transportation. Housekeeping and cooking services are available as well.

Bahia de Los Suenos is about a half hour boat ride north and makes for a great day trip if the weather is calm. Other worthwhile trips include: Cabo Pulmo (diving), Todos Santos (mission town on the Pacific side), La Paz (Malecon), and San Jose's Centro Historico.

The pool, art, and abundance of spiny cacti make our property challenging for parents with young children. Well behaved pets will be considered. No smoking. Refundable deposit required.

Here's what our guests have been saying:

'We had a really nice time at your place. It was so beautiful and relaxing! We loved the kyacks too!

The kids had a great time in the pool... Luis and Adreanna are so nice and helpful.'

(Bodega guest from Montana)

'We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed Luis and Adriana and the house.'

(Casa guest from Utah)

'We are just home from a rather extraordinary experience in Baja. Thank you so very much for affording us the opportunity to enjoy a remarkable vacation that surpassed all our expectations. We all had the time of our lives. Luis was a great help and muy amable, Adriana likewise, and the village itself really started to feel like home. The people were extremely friendly, the area was charming, and the activities were terrific.'

(Casa guest from California)

'The trip was a dream come true. Just what I needed - feel like a new person!'

Why Leslie chose Los Barriles

This house was owner designed and built.

What makes this estate unique

El Cardonal is Baja the way it used to be. Muy tranquilo! If you are seeking peace and quiet with modern amenities and spectacular natural beauty, then we invite you to share our secret. The coral reef out our back door is more pristine than Cabo Pulmo's and has none of the crowds. Whales, manta rays, and dolphins are frequently seen locally. Fishing boats still go out daily from our beach. Walk to town for tortillas, groceries, or tacos in the evenings.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The community in the town is welcoming and friendly. Leslie gives the best suggestions on where to find great local food and activities. The house is clean, well kept, very comfortable, and spacious. The kayaks and paddle boards were in great condition. The pool was refreshing after a day of exploring.

Beautiful home, Beautiful setting...beautiful place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

The home was as described and far better, it is the perfect place for those wanting to relax and return to a simpler way of life. It is the exact opposite of a trip to the rat race and tourist traps of Cabo! The location even makes Los Barilles seem like a metropolis. We swam, kayaked, snorkeled, fished, rode bikes and explored the country side by quads, visited with the locals and enjoyed their hospitality...Vicente, Cente, Alphonso, Alexis, Adriana, Urmas and Jose all helped to make our trip memorable. Jimmy at Candoo rentals set us up with the Quad and delivered to the house...Follow Leslie’s tips, we did...including a trip to El Triunfo for amazing Bread and Breskfast and the best roast chicken ever at Ochoa’s. Thanks Leslie, for sharing your home it is a very special place!

Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed here in Dec. What a lovely retreat. Away from it all, nothing but relaxation. We loved Kayaking, beach combing, swimming, and exploring the area on the ATV. A day trip into San Jose Del Cabo was very doable , visiting gorgeous beaches along the "corridor". The drive to Los Barilles is curving and slow, but worth it for a great grocery store, restaurants, bakery and a bit of good shopping. Our favorite restaurant there was Hermans, cute, great food and THE BEST hand made Margarita! Herman himself is a character!

Closer to the house, we found the food at Las Terraces Very good and inexpensive. Our son-in-law hired a local fisherman for $160.00 to take him out on a boat on a calm morning, within 2 hours they had to return they had caught so many fish! Most notably a 125 lb. Marlin! The captain completely cleaned the meat for him too.

The beaches both directions from the house were great to explore, at times you will even find cows, complete with bells on them! Birds of prey are abundant in the area, we enjoyed watching them. The T.V. room is such a nice bonus, including a good collection of videos and books.

One can arrange to have massages right at the house by arranging them at the hotel Las Terraces, just blocks from the house.

Staying at Tres Hijas is not your ordinary Mexico experience, it is a True and real experience. If you don't mind being away from the madding crowds, you will love it here as we did!

We look forward to our next visit very much!

Returning guest--from Oregon

  • 5 of 5

Safe and wonderful return trip (3rd) to this lovely ocean front home and the Baja. The town, home and the property are perfect for a family or group seeking a traditional old remote baja type experience. If you want a quiet and natural vacation this place is for you. We enjoy fishing, cooking, scuba diving (1.5 hours away) and walking the white clean beaches. The small friendly coastal town has almost one of everything you need. We drive 30 minutes to the larger town for one big weekly shopping trip. The home owner is great and very helpful. Cabo is 2.5 hours away if you want the action of the big city. We have explored all of the baja south of La Paz and while we love it all we appreciate returning home to this special property.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Brooks! It is really gratifying to host people who appreciate this place as much as we do. We love it for family reunions, water sports, and the small pueblo of El Cardonal. It is true we have almost one of everything you need: One cantina, one restaurant, one small market, one tortilleria, one good local chef, and at least one really good boat captain! Distance to Cabo San Lucas is correct at 2.5 hours but airport is only 1.5 hours. Diving at Cabo Pulmo may be 1.5 hours away but we stick to the reef in our back yard!
