Casa De Amigos...

From the moment you reach the wrought iron gate and enter the circular courtyard with its fountain, palm trees, and manicured landscape, to the instant the view takes your breath away when you open the front door and look through the villa, over the infinity edge pool, and out to the crystal blue sea, you will know that you picked the right place to spend quality time in style with those closest to you.

Casa de Amigos is situated directly on the beach of the Sea of Cortez in the town of Los Barriles. The estate villa was built a few years ago and is one of the nicest villas built in the area. It has the distinction of being the only oceanfront rental in Los Barriles with an infinity edge pool and Jacuzzi. Another nice feature is the villa is located only two miles north of downtown Los Barriles and the road to Casa de Amigos is 99% paved from the moment you leave the airport and drive to the villa.

A place of rest and activity, both. Casa de Amigos is at the same time comfortable and elegant enough to beg the question, 'Why venture out at all?' Yet with so much to do and so many places to explore, you might see less of Casa de Amigos than you planned.

As you can plainly see, Casa de Amigos is a place of beauty, serenity, and comfort. Every detail has been considered in every aspect of its design to please the eye and the body. With so many memories just waiting to be created and enjoyed, we welcome you to make a reservation and share in the dream that we created with and for friends. Casa de Amigos is the 'house of friends.'

About Gregorio

We have a deep love for the ocean and always wanted to build a house in Baja on the water. When we came upon the community of Los Barriles we knew we found a special spot and purchased our lot in 1996. We finished the villa in 2001 (do you ever really finish?) and have been enjoying our Casa ever since. We then set our sights on Aptos California and built a home on the ocean in Aptos in a beautiful gated ocean front community a few miles south of Santa Cruz. We enjoy sharing both homes so check them out on VRBO. ENJOY!

Gregorio purchased this house in 1996

Why Gregorio chose Los Barriles

According to local rental agencies Casa De Amigos is the most sought after rental in all of Los Barriles, Spa Buena Vista, Rancho Leonero, Punta Pescadero or Cardinal...

What makes this house unique

Casa De Amigos is the only beach front, on the sand villa with infinity edge pool and Jacuzzi. The Sea of Cortez in front of the villa is very swimmer friendly and has one of the best snorkeling reefs in the area. Casa De Amigos is located in a development called Santa Maria which is the premier development of Los Barriles located only 2 miles north of downtown Los Barilles.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have rented several villas in Los Barriles over the years. When you take into account the close location to town, the quality of the villa, pool/spa and of course the sand/beach front setting there is no better place to stay.

Thanks for the great stay Gregorio and we look forward to coming back to Casa De Amigos!

A Fantastic Home Right on the Beach - Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Casa De Amigos is Paradise! What a spectacular home! What a wonderful find!

Casa De Amigos is an amazing property – when we drove up to the gate and saw the spacious house and the beautiful grounds I knew we would be safe in this paradise. The home was welcoming with high ceilings and lots of windows – bringing the warmth and sunshine of the perfect weather into the interior.

The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was better equipped than mine at home! It is obvious the host is meticulous about the condition of the property and making certain that his guests are truly taken care of.

My favorite part of Casa De Amigos was the large patio area, the infinity pool and the hot tub – which was the perfect place to relax after a full day out in the sun.

Casa De Amigos is the Ultimate Get-Away – we loved our stay and hope to be back every year!

Thank you Gregorio for creating and sharing such an amazing home!

An amazing 5 days

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Casa De Amigos. It was the perfect distance from town. The house functioned great for us and the Casita was perfect for overflow. It is a very peaceful setting and just a short drive to town. We would definitely go back.

Perfect Girls' Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Casa de Amigos was perfect in every way. From the beautiful decor inside, to the lovely landscaping and infinity pool/hot tub... it was paradise in every way! Our week was a combination of all types of adventures, and this house was a perfect place to return and relax after a long day of taking in all the sightseeing that the area has to offer. Every morning, we would wake up to the stunning view of the sunrise over the ocean; it felt like a personal getaway. The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable, and there is a well accommodated kitchen, with everything we needed to cook several meals. I couldn't recommend this house enough to any kind of vacationers-- you will be blown away when you walk through the door.

Best week of my life!

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Los amigos was a beautiful home and perfect for our stay. With 8 women we had plenty of room and more than enough things to do. The house is very close to town, making it easy to go in for groceries, dinner, or activities. We utilized the hot tub heavily and spent most of our days poolside. The paddle boards and kayaks were also fun to use for a little adventure! Highly recommend

Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a large group: each bedroom has their own bathroom, there is a fully equipped spacious kitchen, dining area and a living room on the first floor. There's plenty of space by the pool as well. The house is beautifully decorated and the hosts are incredibly helpful. Take advantage of the recommendations they provide! We had a cook come in one night and treat us to an amazing traditional Mexican dinner; we also went on an ATV day trip and explored some local restaurants. Would definitely come back!

Beautiful house in a charming town

  • 5 of 5

I came here for a girl's trip with 7 of my friends and we had a blast! The house was perfect and had an amazing view of the ocean. We woke up to watch the sunset every morning. The pool area is perfect for lounging around and the jacuzzi was a great way to relax after a day in the sun. The town of Los Barriles is very charming with several restaurants and things to do. If you're looking for something adventurous to do, rent ATVs and explore the coast for gorgeous views of the ocean. Would come back here in a heartbeat!
