About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

This luxurious beachfront villa offers privacy and inspiring, spectacular views from your coveted third floor, corner location. Wake up to some of the best sunrises ever as the sun crawls across an incredibly calm Sea of Cortez. Enjoy the views and ocean breezes all day from all of your rooms and both of your balconies - this is the best of all locations! Walk right out of the building for quick access to the beach and pool. This property along with its sister property, Palmas De Cortez Resort, are recognized as 'The Place To Stay' in Los Barriles. We are located in the heart of the quaint fishing village of Los Barriles, Baja California Sur and within walking distance to shops, grocery stores and wonderful restaurants. No rental car is necessary and transportation is available to and from the San Jose Del Cabo airport.

Our Villa is approximately 1200 square feet with 2 balconies, 2 full bathrooms, and two main living areas (kitchen that is fully open to living room with queen size sofa pull out couch and master bedroom with king size bed). There is also a queen size automatic blow up air mattress and a small cot for additional sleep options. There is separate air conditioning in each room as well as ceiling fans in the bedrooms. An outdoor shower is provided for your return from the beach. It is perfect for families, friends or couples wishing to have separate sleeping quarters and their own private bathrooms. It is beautifully appointed with granite counter tops, marble floors and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is spacious with all the equipment for the most creative cooks; including a Sub Zero refrigerator, Viking stove top, and Bosch washer and dryer.

The Villa De Cortez complex has a Private Beach front Infinity Edge pool with swim up bar plus separate hot tub and small children's pool. The new restaurant is located between the Villa De Cortez and the Palmas De Cortez resorts. The food is excellent and you'll never beat the view!

The East Cape is world famous for its sport fishing and is considered to be the 'fishing capital of the world'. Fishing charters are available just steps away at the adjoining Hotel Palmas De Cortez owned and operated by Van Wormer Resorts. Don't fish? You can charter a boat for a day of sight seeing, diving or snorkeling right next door.

For those of you that kite surf or wind surf, you can go right out to the beach from the villa and take off. No need to walk or drive to North Beach.

Guests are invited to use the amenities at the Palmas De Cortez which include a day spa (the best massage I've ever had), tennis courts, gym and a variety of water and outdoor activities such as jet skiing, kayaking or shore fishing and ATV rentals.

Cabo Pulmo, with world renowned diving and snorkeling, is just an hour south. You can rent an ATV within walking distance so you can explore the miles of roads and trails that lead to deserted beaches or down an arroyo up into the mountains. A day trip to Santiago, 30 minutes away, provides waterfalls, hot springs, and authentic Mexican Pueblo charm.

You will fall in love with this town and the people just as we did. Not only are the locals friendly and accommodating but you will feel safe and secure in a luxurious environment with all the flavor of Old Mexico.

If you want a little more excitement, you can drive south about 90 minutes to Cabo San Lucas and go see Sammy Hagar's famous Cabo Wabo. After a day in 'the city', you'll be anxious to get back to the serenity and relaxation of Los Barriles.

About Keith

My wife and I purchased the villa while it was under construction in 2006-2007. We have three young children who love Mexico as much as we do. We've been visiting Los Barriles for many years and have watched the area grow as the magic of the East Cape and 'old Mexico' have been discovered by more folks. I fish in at least one local tournament each year and enjoy the wide range of fishing action - the marlin, tuna, Wahoo, and roosterfish are true sport fish - and our kids love to fish from the dock or a boat for reef fish of all types. We occasionally fly ourselves into neighboring Punta Pescadero and enjoy an exciting drive on the mountain road into Los Barriles. We've recently moved to Nashville but we still return to Los Barriles whenever we can. Our kids love every adventure.

Keith purchased this condo in 2006

Why Keith chose Los Barriles

Los Barriles is a magical place - it's very private and far away from the crowds of Cabo. The local people are very friendly and we've got to know many of them over the years. The town is known primarily as a fishing village and is close to all sorts of adventures. We found the area on a trip through Baja in the early 90's and we try to get there as often as possible. We've watched as the area has grown in popularity and we were excited to have an opportunity to own a villa on the beach.

What makes this condo unique

Our villa is a great property for our family. Like most, we enjoy the outdoors, great fishing, adventures in the sand, fun in the pool, and an evenings with calm weather suitable for outdoor cooking and late night swimming - who wouldn't, right? The villa is exceptionally nice and well appointed, the staff maintains the property very well, and we love watching the kids enjoy every part of it.

Great location in an awesome town

  • 4 of 5

My family of 5 stayed at Keith's place and had a great time. The location can't be beat and the proximity and connection to the hotel is very handy. The condo was comfortable with 2 kids sleeping in the living room and my older son sleeping on the porch, with my wife and I in the master bedroom. Sunrises were spectacular looking out our window.We would get up early and with a cup of coffee in hand, watch the Manta Rays breaching off the beach. It was spectacular. I would give it 5 stars except for some problems with the shower - handle broke off and never got repaired- and the air mattress had a slow leak. Having said that we would go back again!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was great, right on the beach, perfect for our family. Our kids loved all the activities in Los Barriles and we loved the low key vacation. If youa re looking for night life and fancy restaurants-this is not the town for you. If you want to mountain bike, kiteboard, fish, snorkel, and have a low key vacation- this is for you.

Sea of Cortez gem

The complex is located directly on the main beach, great pools, great beach, great fishing. The unit itself is a very nice corner unit with two balconies, ocean breezes flow through. Very clean and well equipped. comfortable beds. Keith the owner is great, fast communication easy to work with. Pedro and the rest of the onsite staff are all very welcoming and helpful. Dont miss Saturday morning Empenadas and Tamales near the front desk Rent a quad and drive the beach for miles.

Beautiful, special location!

  • 5 of 5

The location on the beach, the amenities of the resort next door and the dedicated pool area makes for a fantastic stay. The morning sunrise and the full moon view from the patios is amazing. If you are a watersports fan, the ease to go fishing, kiteboarding, paddle boarding, kayaking or snorkeling is terrific. The unit is comfortably furnished and included amenities like wifi and a Roku for streaming videos.

The owner was very responsive when the inevitable issues arose. There were some building repairs going on periodically. Just have to accept it like a local with patience and a smile. Would stay again!

Great couple of days!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 days in Los Barriles at this great rental and didn't want to leave. Everything was great. The experience renting from Keith was excellent. We loved the resort pool, swim up bar and ate there for every meal. We rented quads and rode up and down the beach and it was a blast. We will be back. I highly recommend this rental and Los Barriles.

Great spring break with the kids.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in The Villas de Cortez, they are very clean and cute. Everyone is so nice and Pedro (the Villas manager) is a gem. We were very impressed with the Bay View restaurant at the hotel. They cooked up our Mahi with three different seasonings and it was truly delicious. Our two boys, ages 8 and 9, were never bored and had a great time at the resort's many pools and the beach in front of the hotel. We saw and heard the mobula rays quite a few times in front of the hotel which was a special treat. The location of the unit is nice with a fully functioning elevator available as needed. I would highly recommend this rental.

Nearest Point of Interest
Villa 1301 - Third Floor Paradise!

Costco is near the Cabo airport for extended stays and there's a full grocery store within walking distance of the villa. I free dive in the reefs near the villa and also drive to the Cabo Surf Hotel occasionally to chase a few waves. The ATV trails to the waterfalls in the surrounding mountains are spectacular and make great adventure for all ages.
