Great location

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful view from the roof top and what a great location. Easy to find, access to the beach is right in front of you and the unit downstairs was perfect if all you needed was a place to sleep and shower.

This was a great experience! The house suited our needs very well and the location was spectacular as it was about 200 steps to the water! The view was pure heaven from the roof as well as from the master bedroom, kitchen and dining room. The owner Jeff was always available to answer any questions that we had as was Jose one of his assistants who was always very helpful and kind. I cant say enough about his other assistant Anna who found us (as we got lost) and escorted us to the house. The area is very quiet, but that is exactly what we were looking for so that made us happy. You definitely need a car or an ATV to get around as the town is about 4 miles away but luckily Jeff had both of those available for us to rent as well! We were able to use the facilities at Buena Vista Resort and that was an excellent treat on days where it was too windy on the beach. There was a bit too much wind for our liking some days but I guess that's why they call it the best place for kiteboarders who were excellent to watch on those windy days too. If you don't like stairs then renting the bottom 2 bedroom suite is for you as there are 22 stairs to the master bedroom, living room, and kitchen on the upper part of the house but otherwise the house was wonderful overall!

Thanks for everything Jeff!

Perfect for our family!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect for us during our stay at Jeff's house. We rented the guest unit downstairs so we didn't see the rest of the house - but I'm sure it is great. The beds were comfy - we slept great. Loved the outdoor shower - awesome water pressure! Great AC units in both bedrooms and kitchen - very necessary to sleep. There was snorkeling gear and boogie boards there to use. The house is one house away from the beach, which is perfect for swimming with small kids. The best part for us was the access to the Buena Vista Resort which is a 5 minute walk down the beach. The pool there is amazing - swim up bar where you can order food as well, hot tub, great service. Rocco the dog was a highlight too. He is SO sweet and our daughter loved him! Jeff was super accommodating - there were two huge bottles of water in the fridge for us when we arrived and he met us with a smile and an offer of anything we needed! The only drawback if I had to pick one is that the kitchen wasn't very well equipped - not really enough silverware/dishes for more than two or three people. We didn't need it as we had friends staying nearby and we either ate out or ate at their place every night. But for people who really want to cook in the kitchen, it could pose an issue. But other than that, everything was perfect! We will be back! Thanks Jeff!

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

We rented the entire house for 10 nights and the layout of Jeff's place was ideal for our family! My husband & I stayed in one of the downstairs bedrooms, our 4-year-old son took the 2nd bedroom downstairs and my parents were very comfortable in the master suite on the 2nd floor. The suite on the lower floor includes it own small kitchen & bathroom which was allowed us our own space when we needed it. The living room, dining room & kitchen area on the second floor has lovely views of the sea, and opening all the windows allowed the ocean breeze to flow through the living space which was great. The kitchen had all the basic essentials we needed including 2 blenders that came in handy for afternoon pina coldas & margaritas! We had Norma Romero & her family prepare meals for us several times and the food was awesome :)

The roof top patio has unobstructed 360 degree views and we spent a lot of our evenings up there enjoying the sunsets & the sound of the waves. There is AC available throughout the house but we only found we needed it on a couple of nights.

Jeff had a beach umbrella at the house which came in handy, and a boogie board available which our son (and my husband!) loved using. I know he usually has an ATV for rent as well but it wasn't avaible during our stay. If you do have the chance to use the ATV though I would recommend it as the beach goes for miles and can easily be explored with the right vehicle. The area the house is in is called Buena Vista and all the locals & visitors we met were really friendly and we always felt safe, day or night. As other guests have metioned the hotel a 5 min walk down the beach has a nice restaurant & an awesome pool area with swim up pool bar that you can use. Apparently they charge $10 USD a day to access the pool facilities, but we had some friends who were staying at the hotel and they didn't charge us the day rate. The town of Los Barriles is a quick 10 min drive away and has a number of great little restaurants & shops to check out. If you are looking for gifts, art or souveniers we found that the store El Toro y La Luna which is on the hwy just past the entrance to Los Barriles on the left side of the road was amazing with some really unique finds. Chapitos was great for groceries but Tienda Popular seemed to be where the locals go and the prices were a bit cheaper. You can get your gallon water bottles refilled at the water depot just up the road from Tienda Popluar for around $1.50 USD.

Lower level review only - spartan accommodations in need of updating and repair.

  • 2 of 5

Could be a great economical rental with a little maintenance and TLC, along with clear communication to provide folks a welcoming feel. Trouble spots include inside shower that dribbled water, no washcloths, oven unusable because knob is missing, (host provided a pliers to turn it on when asked), kitchen sink stopped up and garbage disposal not working but was fixed after 2nd day. No pots for boiling water but host provided one from upper unit when we asked. Provided 6 liters of drinking water. No couch. No table in kitchen. Plastic patio table and chairs in outdoor courtyard function as dining area and are old and unsteady, should be replaced. Beach chair are rusty, unstable, uncomfortable, unsafe, unusable. Outside shower and fish cleaning station are provided. Rusty wires for clothes line leave permanent rust on clothing so hangers should be used - good documentation tip. Host considered uncharging us for using two bedrooms in the unit but didn't when we explained that there is no information about which room is included in the one-bedroom versus 2-bedroom charge and no one was there upon our arrival to provide more information. Listing is unclear and confusing regarding what is provided when renting the lower level versus just the upper level versus the entire building.

When we arrived we were greeted by two quiet dogs shut inside the courtyard fence surrounding the building. Once we figured out how to enter the courtyard gate and figured out which door was the unit itself, we found hand-written note inside explaining host's whereabouts, the dogs' names, Wifi password, but no documentation on the unit or the grounds. Host appeared at 10:00 pm to check in with us and we discovered he stayed in the upper unit after he popped his head over the top of the courtyard the next morning during our breakfast. Fountain in courtyard can be powered on as the host told us after the 3rd day - it did attract two hummingbirds which was nice.

Must have an automobile to get food and necessities, sightsee and go to restaurants.

Owner's Response: I'm really shocked about this review as you can see I have had nothing but excellent reviews. The reason for this negative review was not based on their stay but the fact they chose to leave a day early and wanted a refund. Let me respond to their comments. They never had anything negative to say during their stay and expressed their gratification for the stay until they left. The disposal was a simple fix with the reset button. I gave them extra pots not to mention beer, extra coffee, eggs, and things I was happy to provide so they didn't have to go to the store so can't believe they would say they didn't have appropriate cookware.. They rented the single room however they used the second room. I was gracious enough to let them use it at no added charge that saved them $145. They claimed they did not know until I showed them a copy of their email where they confirmed the one bedroom but simply said not a problem feel free to use it at no cost and now they complain about something they did not have to pay for. Cloths line has hangers so the wire is not used. The fountain switch has a label. They were instructed on the self check in which only required opening the gate and walking in. As they arrived late I came back and gave them snorkel gear and spent an hour telling about the best snorkel locations and things to do. Beach chairs are fine, a little rust spots are typical down here. They loved the dogs and took them to the beach quite frequently. I don't think this is a matter of the accommodations but they tried to take advantage of my generosity and pushed it by wanting the refund the last day as they decided to visit Todos Santos. I checked the shower and it has plenty of pressure. Once in a blue moon the city water gets shut off so the auxiliary supply may not have the full pressure but plenty of pressure. The stove had six knobs, one missing. I told them just to take one of the burner knobs and put it on the oven as they are interchangeable. Every request they had I provided for. The town is a 5 minute car ride, not even sure what they were trying to present in their comment about the need for a car. It's always advised as they're are some many neat places to see and visit within a 30 minute drive. I know you will have a great experience as all the previous guests have had.
