About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

A little slice of heaven in a Villa de Cortez condo on the edge of the gated Hotel Palmas de Cortez property in the little fishing village of Los Barriles on the Sea of Cortez.

This beautiful top floor condo provides privacy and services, a place to completely relax or fill your days with activities. With balconies off the bedroom and living room, you can look down over the pool to the beach and the Sea.

The 1 bedroom condo is roughly 1200 square feet with marble floors and granite counter tops. The master bedroom has a balcony, king size bed, TV, and beautiful en suite bathroom. The living room has a balcony, TV, Stereo, DVD player and pull-out couch and an additional bathroom with shower. There is an additional single roll-away bed available.

The Villa de Cortez is one of the finest boutique resorts on the East Cape. It is the perfect place to just relax or take part in the many activities available: world class deep sea fishing and windsurfing, 9-hole golf course on the property, biking, hiking, 4-wheeling or just strolling miles of sandy beaches or take a day trip to the best diving area on the Pacific Coast just 12 miles south of the resort.

The little town of Los Barriles is within easy walking distance with shops, restaurants and bars, grocery stores and an Ameri-Med clinic just steps from the resort's entry gate.

Great location! Nice unit.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived and checking in was easy. Unit was clean and ready. The views from living room and bedroom balconies are unobstructed and simply beautiful! Listening to the surf is relaxing. Best time to be on balcony is for morning tea, even if it is windy or chilly, the sun directly on you warms you up.

Plenty of restaurants and grocery within walking distance. If you plan on fishing, the fishing boats leave right in front of villa... very convenient.

We did not need to turn on AC as the unit stays cool, and it was a cool week in Los Barilles, in fact a bit too cool and there is no heat. Extra blankets would be nice.

There are two books in the unit discussing checkin and check out and they don't match.. make sure you get the info straight from the owners. Pleasant stay and would stay again if we are in town. Thanks

Wonderful unit...couldn't be happier with our experience!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several of the units in this building. I was a bit apprehensive to rent this one because of some of the negative reviews. However, we were so pleasantly surprised with our experience! The owner was very responsive when I asked questions about the property and even tried to get the adjoining unit for my parents (unfortunately, it was already booked). The unit was in great shape and, although, the dryer and dishwasher weren't outstanding, they worked and were typical for Mexico. The balconies on the 1 bedrooms aren't very large, but that is the case for all of them. Overall, it was a great stay and the unit was very clean and very nice and the A/C worked great! Hint to future renters: be sure to get the unit number from the owner before you arrive.

Lovely spot, but...

  • 3 of 5

The condo is beautiful and the view from the decks out onto the Sea of Cortez is gorgeous. Watching the sun rise and drinking a cup of coffee on the deck was one of our favorite things to do. Walking on the beach is so nice and there are several very good restaurants close by to enjoy.

The annoying thing was that several of the appliances in the condo were not functioning. The friendly condo maintenance person mentioned when we arrived that the dishwasher wasn't working. The next morning we tried to heat something in the microwave and discovered that it was non-functional. A few days later we tried to do a small load of clothes in the washer and water began running out the bottom onto the floor; and when we tried the clothes dryer, there was no heat coming out. Also there is a nice bath tub in the master bath, but the drain stopper doesn't work, so the only way to take a bath is to put a wash cloth over the drain and hope the water doesn't drain out before you're done bathing. It is a minor thing but there were several light bulbs burned out around the condo and in need of being replaced.

We mentioned the microwave and clothes washer/dryer issues to the maintenance person and he sent a couple of emails to the owners to see if they wanted to repair or replace the appliances, but he got no reply during the duration of our stay. Hopefully all these things will be taken care of soon.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry our appliances did not work for our guests in March 2012. We weren't aware of any issues. We will be going down to the condo on April 25th 2012 and will make sure everything is in working order and we will hire a local management agency for renters to contact if they need anything and who will make sure everything is in order before each guest arrives. We very much appreciate any comments or reviews from our renters. The good ones remind us of how wonderful it is down there and the others help us keep our little slice of heaven in good shape for our guests and us. Thank you, Russell & Jeanie
