About Rebecca and Dave
After 20 years of traveling worldwide, we found Los Barriles. Because the Sea of Cortez is calm much of the time, this area provides us with the most options of things to do. Avid fishermen, 'we only go for fish bigger than us.' The beautiful and still untouched white sand beaches are where I run my Australian Shepherd, during the summer entirely alone on miles of beach. We have lived here year-round for 10 years, and are still lovin' it!
Rebecca and Dave purchased this House in 2012
Why Rebecca and Dave chose Los Barriles
AMENITIES!!! We built this 4-plex with an eye to maximizing the benefits of a vacation rental. Everything about this property was thought out thoroughly and intentionally. Protected from winter North winds, each home is staggered and leveled for maximum privacy. The beds and linens are all of highest quality. The kitchens are stocked with most every appliance you could need. Each home even has its own washer/drier, so that absolutely nothing is shared except the pool! We built a huge 30 foot shaded pool and surrounded it with lush patios: In the summertime, is possibly the only usable pool in Los Barriles, in that it is not too hot in the summer because we can regulate the temperature with our cover. The outdoor lighting and professional landscaping truly gives the pool, entertaining areas and total property the resort feel, with the privacy of a home rental.
What makes this House unique
Catering to our guests needs and desires, we offer on-site quads, side-by-sides, and stand-up-paddleboards, at daily, weekly, or monthly rates. We also offer beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and beach coolers on a check-out basis. We also offer package deals. We will assist in coordination of your panga or cruiser rental.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Enjoyed our stay. Very relaxing.
Exceeded all expectations
This was one of the very best places we have ever stayed. As two families traveling together, we had more than enough room, space to cook, a rooftop deck and a heated pool! Rebecca was super accessible and handled any issues that arose. We were able to rent quads directly through them, forgoing the hassle of picking them up or dropping them off in town.
Our casa was quiet, clean, airy, and well stocked. ( hello! a juicer!) Beds were comfy, sheets were soft and bathrooms clean and cared for.
We will definitely book again! We had a fantastic time!!!
This is where you want to be
You won't want to leave. Bouganvilleas drape the entrance and patios. The home is private and close to everything you will need - great restaurants, beach, fishing and well stocked grocery stores. Our casita was beautifully decorated plus a clean beautiful pool and plenty of parking. Baja has always been captivating and so is this place. Rebecca and David have created an awesome home away from home with their rentals that my friends and family will return to.
Los Barriles home for rent
Great place located a short drive from town. Everything worked and was nice and clean. Would definitely recommend for other to enjoy.
Great Place for Some R&R
Pick up and drop off at the airport went flawlessly. Rebecca and Dave met us at our casa for the grand tour. The casa met our expectations, not 100% perfect but hey you're in the Mexican desert on a picturesque beach, what more could you ask for!! Lazy days by the pool, beautiful evenings bbq ing on the rooftop patio, (which is huge by the way) enjoying the amazing views and watching the sunset. If we had any questions or issues Rebecca and Dave responded promptly, we just fired off an email as stated on the welcome sheet as it's the quickest way to get ahold of them. They were so kind they even left us alone in their home to use their land line to change our flights due to winter storms back home. Hopefully we will make it back next year.
You get what you pay for but not in this case
The property does have a nice roof top patio and pool area. After that it goes down hill. We found a dirty sock in our bed during our stay. There is a good sized hole in the kitchen ceiling and if you opened the dishwasher you would be sick from the smell. Cabinet drawers were dirty inside. The patio furniture along the pool needs to be sprayed down once in a while ....so we did it ? ....The air conditioner in one bedroom must have leaked numerous times prior to our stay as the wall and curtains were stained . Sofa and livingroom furniture was micro-leather so it was stained and banged up from years of use. Made you not wanted to sit on it ... should have covers at least.
We are sure it must have been nice at one time but it now seems to be just a place for the owners to make money. The power was out the first day and even though the owners live close they never bothered to come down and explain it happens from time to time and not to worry. Our toilet seat broke and it took 2 days to fix ...?
The place really needs a good cleaning ...and some attention. We have travelled all over the world and this place would be a 2 star in vietnam. We were so disappointed ..as we expected more from the pictures...and we do have pictures
These type of reviews are personally painful for us. We realize that in today's day and age that reviews are important; we also realize the abuse inherent in the system. The exaggerations and falsehoods sometimes are impressive to see.
In this particular review, we inspected every aspect of their claims. We found that approximately half were overly exaggerated and the other half did not exist. We do not know why people exaggerate but we are proud of our property. We have lived in the exact house they lived in with the exact furnishings, cabinetry and construction, and we are happy to host dinner parties with friends, colleagues, and guests here. If you will please take the time to look at all the sites we advertise on, you will see we have received 2 bad reviews to over 70 good reviews. Are 70 reviews constituting 400 people correct or are 2 bad reviews correct?
When these guests checked in, there was an issue with a broken toilet seat. It was not available to purchase in our town. We informed them we would make the 5 hour trip to Cabo to purchase the seat the following day, they said it was not a problem, and it was installed at 5p. We inspected the cabinet drawers and they were not dirty. There is no hole in the ceiling, just a 6-inch place where the paint came off. We have the touch-up paint, but thought it would be too intrusive to fix while guests were there. The sofa and living room furniture are well above standard, professionally cleaned every year and vacuumed weekly. The pool patio furniture is literally brand new at the time of this review. Please keep in mind, while we live on one of the top ten beaches in the world, there may be small issues. But, we live close by with a team of gardeners, house-keeper, electricians, and plumbers so we can handle them as quick as humanly possible.
We check on our guests multiple times a week, if not more, to make sure everything is running smoothly. Regularly, we talk with guests to recommend everything we can do to help them have fun, just like we do. These guests only discussed a toilet seat, then chose to make a very nasty and false review, even though we were on-site and talked to them frequently. We built the property and take pride in the beautiful homes and patios we provide for people to have their vacations. We love this place and will continue to help all of our guests with their travel here. On to working hard for the 99% of happy guests!
