Beautiful beach estate with pool & spa-4, 5 or 6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, Sleeps 12-16
Bienvenidos! Relax and enjoy “Baja time” at Casa de Las Palmas, a private, gated beachfront estate located on the beautiful blue Sea of Cortez in Baja, Mexico. The villa is situated on over an acre of land in a quiet, convenient neighborhood that is a 5-minute trip by car or quad to the center of Los Barriles.
With 6-bedrooms and 5,500 square feet of living space, Casa de Las Palmas is one of the largest beachfront homes in Los Barriles and is perfect for large or small groups. We invite you to enjoy, relax, and unwind at our roomy family-friendly compound that sits on the edge of a white, sandy beach where you can swim, snorkel, kayak, fish, or paddleboard.
The beautifully designed heated pool and spa with a lush landscaped deck area is fully fenced, gated, and protected with child-safety locks, an added benefit for families with small children. The pool area was designed to be enjoyed year-round and is protected and out of the wind, which is especially nice during the cooler winter months!
As you enter the arched doors of the large, airy great room, your first sight is a gorgeous view of the Sea of Cortez framed by arched porticos and swaying palm trees. An extensive remodel in 2009 continued the elegant style of a sprawling single level traditional Spanish hacienda with private patios, outdoor seating areas, and large verandas with spacious dining areas. A wall of sliding glass doors on the beach side afford views of the sea from anywhere in the room.
One side of the great room has a large, well-equipped modern kitchen with a dining area that seats 12 or more. Comfortable couches, chairs, and a game table provide a separate conversation area at the other end of the room where you can enjoy major channels on the satellite TV. Equipped with a DVD player, an Xbox, and connection for computer to television, everyone is sure to be satisfied. Connect to high-speed internet anywhere throughout the property, including the pool area and outdoor verandas.
The main house has four bedrooms (perfect for a smaller group) with the two Casita bedrooms just across the courtyard. The house comfortably sleeps 12 - 16 people yet still provides privacy if desired. The bedrooms are furnished with king or queen beds and all have private baths, other than two bedrooms which share a large Jack n’ Jill bath.
At Casa de Las Palmas, our fantastic staff will satisfy your every need. We have chefs who are available to cook for you on a daily or nightly basis. Traditional Mexican flavors combined with flame-grilled steaks, BBQ ribs, or grilled shrimp are always a favorite!
Max handles our transportation and is one of several English-speaking drivers who can provide you and your group round-trip airport transportation in large, air-conditioned passenger vans. You will arrive relaxed and ready to start your vacation at the Casa.
Tere and Lugarda are your housekeepers during your stay and come to the house on a daily basis to keep everything neat and tidy. Rene, our gardener and caretaker, maintains the property and grounds in an impeccable picture-perfect state while Beto keeps the pool in pristine condition.
As you sip your morning coffee on the veranda, you may catch sight of whales and their calves passing by, rays leaping out of the sea as they try to fly, or a school of porpoise traveling through. You will experience spectacular sunrises over the Sea of Cortez, as well as enjoying fabulous food and great conversation with family and friends under the starry night skies. The activity in and on the sea is non-stop and will provide daily thrills and excitement for everyone.
Before you know it, you will be in “Baja time” – a slower paced lifestyle where the days slip one into the next and daily cares become less important, where people are friendly, and life goes at its own pace. Remember, there is always mañana . . . so come enjoy, relax, and create memories of a lifetime at your home away from home . . . Casa de Las Palmas.
4-bedroom rates cannot be calculated with VRBO. Please email me for a detailed quote.
The villa with all amenities is available on a weekly basis (4-night minimum stay) or for up to a month. You will find several excellent restaurants in Los Barriles, a Saturday market with organic fruits, veggies, and fresh baked goods, a deli, grocery stores, and tourist shopping just five-minutes away in town. With all of the modern conveniences available, Los Barriles still maintains the quaint charm of a small fishing village, which you are sure to love. Your hosts live year round in town and are more than happy to help you plan everything to make your time here as perfect and stress-free as possible.
ATV’s and 2- or 4-seater side-by-sides are a great way to get around town and “live like a local.” (Ask about the discounts available to our guests.) These vehicles provide adventurous rides up the arroyos to picturesque waterfalls.
In an excellent area known for big game fishing for marlin, sailfish, yellow fin tuna, and Dorado, there are many boats and crew available for day trips. We will be glad to recommend our personal favorites.
Drivers and vans are also available for day trips, shopping, or other excursions. A day trip to Cabo Pulmo, a national marine park with one of the most beautiful reefs, is a great place for a picnic lunch where you can swim and snorkel with the sea lions and the many diverse species that inhabit the reef.
During the months of December through late February/early March, kiteboarding and wind surfing are the sports “du jour” due to the on-shore north winds. A short walk south from the house will take you to ExotiKite Kiteboarding School whose friendly, experienced instructors are all IKO trained and certified. All gear and equipment can be rented through them and your personal instructor will have you up and riding the wind and waves in no time.

Why Mary Kufeldt-Antle chose Buenos Aires

What makes this Villa unique

What a wonderful time we had!
I am one of five siblings who bravely decided to have our first sibling reunion, with spouses, two weeks ago. We chose Casa de Las Palmas based on previous reviews and low cost and short time getting to the SJ Cabo airport from the SF Bay Area airports. We couldn't have been happier with our decision.
This is an amazing space, with privacy for all, and a beautiful pool, hot tub and wonderful beach access. The kitchen and living room space were very comfortable and allowed us to gather each evening with ease. We decided to have Benny and his helpers, Alma and Marian, prepare meals for us three of our nights, and we couldn't have been happier with their cooking, presentation and clean up. What a treat! Mary had given us one free meal of Benny's cooking the first night which was quite a treat after traveling all day.
We enjoyed the swimming, hiking to the falls, a day trip to La Paz (the whale museum is amazing.) Some in our party loved the 9 hole golf course in town, which was quite fun, even for avid golfers. The beach was clean, the stores in town had everything we needed. Our vacation was simply wonderful!
We want to thank Mary for her commitment to helping her guests. She responded to my inquiries in a timely manner and helped us in arrangements for transfers, recommendations for restaurants and in arranging with Benny for meals at the house.
We recommend Casa de Las Palmas to all.
Mary's property and hospitality are unsurpassed.
There were 13 of us - 10 adults and 3 children ( 11, 10 and & 7 ) - 3 generations and everyone was so happy the whole time.
The children would not get out of the pool, except to go out the front door and down to the beach in front of the house to ride the boogie boards or kayaks. The temperature of the pool and hot tub was perfect. Adults loved it too.
Mary is the best of hosts. She is available to problem shoot any problems immediately and goes above and beyond. She even picked up my daughter and son in law from the bus station when they called to inquire about directions to the house!!!!
The house itself is laid out beautifully - expansive and interesting.
Also I have 2 other recommendations. Rent a quad from QUAD GIRL - so much fun. And they are the best company in town.
Make the time to go north 30 minutes to Pescadero and snorkel. No one else was there and just lovely.
You cannot go wrong choosing to stay at Mary's.
All of us thank you, Mary.
Spectacular Casa and Holiday
Our extended family of 13, (10 adults and 3 children, ages 1, 7 & 10) just returned from a fantastic week long holiday in Los Barriles and all agree that Casa de Las Palmas is the best house we've ever stayed in (and we've stayed in many throughout the years)! The house is so well laid out and thought out, extremely comfortable and well equipped, that we immediately felt at home. Beyond the comfort of the spacious house and the beauty of the beachfront location, the ease of the booking and assistance owner Mary and her crew gave us made the holiday superb, from offering to do our shopping for us so the house would be stocked with our requested groceries when we arrived to arranging to have delicious dinners cooked nightly in house for us by wonderful chef Jorge and Miriam (among the best meals I’ve ever had!). Our holiday got off to a very good start with Max’s airport pick up and Mary greeting us and showing us around the house when we arrived, followed by a lovely welcome dinner of traditional Mexican food. From the awe-inspiring views from the expansive veranda, the beautiful beach outside our door, excursions on ATVs to the arroyo waterfall, delightful snorkeling up the coast, enjoying the lovely swimming pool and hot tub and lounging on the deck and patio, we all had a wonderful vacation in Los Barrilles, with Casa de Las Palmas the jewel in the crown! We hope to return soon!
Best of the Best - We will be back!
Everything about our stay at Casa De Las Palmas was incredible. We searched for an unforgettable property to celebrate our mom's 70th birthday and had 6 adults, 5 kids (ages 2-9). This property was perfect for all of us. Mary is by far one of the best owners you will encounter through rentals. From the moment you reach out to her to the moment you wrap up your stay, she will ensure everything is taken care of and perfect for your specific needs. She is also incredibly well connected with EVERYONE in the town, and was always available if we needed help. We simply reiterate what the other reviews said about the property, beach, pool, spa, flower gardens and "extras" being second to none. We would highly recommend staying here to anyone. A few particular highlights:
-Ample room and privacy, even for a large group. We also liked the late November time frame, seemed like many expatriates we met, were just arriving for their long stays.
-Beach front, plus shielded and "very kid-friendly" private pool and hot tub. Once you get your beach time in each day, it is wonderful to enjoy the quiet pool and hot tub.
-Chef dinners - Rogelio and Miriam ended up coming every night for dinner. This was our first chef experience and if you have never elected to have a chef, do yourself a favor and make sure you have them come at least for a couple of dinners. They are incredible and absolutely worth every penny
-Pre-stock the fridge - What an awesome service to have all of your food and drinks there waiting for you when you arrive. Again worth every penny and Mary and her staff worked so hard to find all of the items we requested
-Amenities and extras - You will have more than you need of everything
-Kids loved the pool and sand toys, ocean kayaks, geckos, lizards, dogs and sea turtles being released every morning on our beach, plus watching kite-boarders all day was awesome
-ATV and UTV/side-by-side rental - Through the company Quad Girl, per Mary's recommendation, plus discount. What an incredible experience. If you have kids or are adventurous, be sure to rent a couple vehicles and visit the waterfall. Quad girl personally delivers the vehicles to Mary's house for your use and picks them up 24-48+ hours later. We will always cherish the unique experiences we had in LB riding these to places you could probably never experience the same way in the US
-Transportation - Seamless through Mary
Thank you Mary and your staff, we sure look forward to returning!
Fantastic property for a multi-generational family vacation
Wow! What a wonderful property! We had a family vacation at Casa de Las Palmas in July and couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. The property is expansive and yet contained so that there is enough room and privacy, even for a large group. We had a party of 10 and there were ample opportunities for both togetherness and time away. The beachfront location is convenient and supplies incredible views throughout the day. The house has so many "extras" that would be additional costs if we had rented another property- SUPs, kayaks, and snorkeling gear just to name a few. The pool is amazing- the pictures do not do it justice! On top of that, Mary is fantastic and has thought of everything! She was friendly, helpful, and available. She also responded to questions very quickly. Rogelio and Miriam came twice to cook for us and the food was delicious- we almost had fights over their apple empanadas. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Casa de Las Palmas- it's wonderful! Thanks you, Mary, for such a great vacation.
Fabulous Family and Friends Spring Break Getaway
Everything about our stay at Casa De Las Palmas was wonderful! We had 8 adults 3 kids and the rooms were perfect for all of us. It was the perfect combinations of relaxation and activities. We all enjoyed having the beach just out the back porch as well as a private pool and spa. The house was stocked with everything you would need from games, to ping pong, kayaks and a hammock to enjoy a quick nap. Mary the host was exceptional. She attended to our every need. We elected to have the chef prepare dinner and breakfast and it was one of the best decisions we made. Rojelio prepared the most delicious meals and was able to accommodate a wide variety of tastes including vegetarians. We would highly recommend staying here to anyone!
Kayaking, fishing, ATV riding through the arroyos and to the waterfalls, kite boarding, surfing, stand-up paddle boards, mountain hiking, zip lines, and more...
