About The Owner

We enjoy travel, and especially like staying in homes & B&B's, rather than hotels. We are happy with the location of Los Barriles, and like to visit nearby towns. Everyone here is relaxed and helpful.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Baja California Sur

After spending one day in Los Barriles, we fell in love with it and the friendliness of the people - Mexican and Gringos - and knew we wanted to have a home there.

What makes this house unique

Quiet, great wind surfing/kiteboarding, fisherman's paradise, snorkeling (a few minutes walk), good neighbors; no noisey roosters or barking dogs. Great views !

Guestbook comments from the manager

well, where to begin !? My first visit to Mexico, and why did I wait so long ? Accomadations here are lovely, and the owners were helpful in every way. A very cute home in a quiet neighborhood with views to die for ! Great snorkeling a few minutes walk. I looked at other places, and this will be my choice when I return next year. Thankyou Robert & Jessie for giving me a vacation to remember, and look forward to in the future.

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

Four of us just returned from a week of sun, snorkeling, and relaxing. Robert and Jessica's home is comfortable, well located, and has great views of the mountains and sea. We spent hours watching the ocean and the birds from the balcony. Good restaurants and services just a few minutes away in low-key Los Barriles, and spectacular beaches and scenery to the north towards Punto Pescadoro. We will hopefully be back very soon!

awesome 2 story home, well stocked, wish we booked it for a much longer time

  • 5 of 5

We loved having 2 floors plus an easily accessible rooftop! Bottom floor bedroom had a fridge and a large bathroom. Views were stunning. Neighbors were very pleasant and friendly. The mtn bikes provided were great to roam around town with. Very safe environment. We are hoping to stay at this property again!

My wife and I stayed at Casa Verde for a month Feb/March 2014. We had a GREAT time. The house is in an excellent location, views outstanding, quiet ,& very comfortable. The views are mesmerizing. Whales were often visible. The roof top deck was a great place to relax, read a book, take in the views, or take a nap.

The photos on VRBO don't do justice to the property. The living area and patio are very nice. The bed very comfortable. The kitchen was good sized & well stocked with most things needed. In fact we cooked most of our meals during our stay. The Internet service at the home was fast and stable. There is no TV at the house which was just fine with us. We were comfortable at the house. It felt like we were staying at the home of a good friend.

The property is in a location that is nicely quiet. The bird feeder was always busy with an amazing variety of birds. We even saw a grey fox climb a tree just on other side of the fence. There was a herd of goats that came by the fence line almost daily which were entertaining to watch.

Casa Verde is about 2.5 miles from town. It is a bit far to walk into town but makes for an easy drive or bike ride. There are many restaurants, a good tortilleria, and decent grocery. If you don't go out to catch your own fish, a man selling good fresh seafood from a truck came by every Tuesday. We speak some Spanish but Los Barriles would an easy place to go for non-Spanish speakers.

Good biking is available right from the house. We were surprised at how many bicyclists were out every morning riding up the paved road that goes up the hills nearby. Jogging up the dirt road north from the house was excellent. We often saw whales breaching as we enjoyed our morning jog along the shoreline at sunrise. Fantastic.

We brought our own inflatable kayaks with us. We could carry our kayaks a few hundred yards down the wash to launch or there is another place maybe a quarter mile walk/drive down the road to launch hard shell kayaks. The kayaking can be fantastic. Whales, dolphins, jumping rays were often just offshore so on a good day you might have some exciting company.

Snorkeling is good at the beach near the house. The best snorkeling is a 15 minute drive north at the Punta Pescadero beach. The snorkeling off the rocks in front of the Punta Pescadero hotel was just as good as at the Cabo Plumo marine park an hour south.

When we return to Los Barriles we would love to stay at Casa Verde again.

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

This house was "simply luxurious". Robert and Jessica, I can't thank you enough for allowing us to come stay in your house. As a busy mom of three this was the perfect place to come for a break. It was so quiet and peaceful. I loved my time up on the rooftop (we spent hours and hours up there). I loved the culture, people, house, everything. I can't wait to go back. This town is a diamond in the rough. It was a piece of heaven. Your home was a real blessing to us all.

OMG!

  • 5 of 5

I got the pleasure to spend 4 day's with my dearrr friends, and what a beautiful time we had together. It was June, Great weather, and on top of the roof we would lay in the evening and watch the moon come up, what a beatiful sight! And the stars. The snorkeling was great, close to the beach, I cannot wait to go back. Very Beautiful place to stay and Relaxing. Thank you Jessie and Robert, Always Carrie

This is a safe and relaxing area. Views from our home are among the best around. The medical clinic is minutes away, if you have any problems. Popular kite-boarding area is a few minutes away. The only boat ramp is a few blocks away. Our home is on a dead-end street, next to an arroyo.
