About the property

Enjoy the charm of old Mexico at the Villa de Cortez condos, located adjacent to the Palmas de Cortez Hotel grounds in the sleepy village of Los Barriles. As a guest at the condo, you have full access to all the activities and services offered by Hotel Palmas de Cortez, which include world class big-game fishing, winter time wind surfing and kiteboarding, diving, snorkeling, zipline, excursions, ATV, kayaking, sunset cruises, executive 9 hole golf and spa services. Though the East Cape region is world famous as literally the best place to catch a striped marlin, and one of the most economical big game fishing destinations anywhere, it also has much to offer the entire family.

A quaint friendly safe community exists in Los Barriles, and with many restaurant and shopping choices in walking distance, you do not need to rent a car. However, there are wonderful areas to explore if you do have a vehicle, such as the Cabo Pulmo Marine Preserve and reef, or the nightlife of Cabo San Lucas.

This studio condo is located on the second floor, south corner unit, providing sweeping unobstructed views of the pool and Sea of Cortez. Enjoy sitting on the balcony watching the boats return from the day’s fishing, or relax by one of the pools in a scene right out of a Corona commercial. You can be as active or as relaxed as you want in Los Barriles, where you will feel that you have entered a time warp into old Mexico, almost as Cabo was 35 years ago. There is free Wifi in the room and hotel lobby, so you don’t have to lose touch, unless of course you want to.

The town of Los Barriles is located just 40 minutes north of the San Jose del Cabo airport, with plenty of taxis for transportation or rental car options. This condo is unit 1201, and features a king sized bed, fold out sofa, travertine floors, granite counters, kitchen, refrigerator/freezer, wine cooler, cozy dining area, and relaxing rocking chairs on the balcony.

Why Don Girskis chose Baja California Sur

My family and I have been traveling to Los Barriles for the last 31 years, and have fallen in love with this part of Mexico. We decided to purchase this condo when construction had just commenced, and have enjoyed it ever since. It's an incredibly safe, relaxing area, with so much to offer. Just a 2 hour flight from the US, but such a fantastic mental break from the rat race.

What makes this condo unique

As the corner unit in the condo on the second floor, unit 1201, the views are completely unobstructed. It has one of the larger studio unit balconys, and the second floor provides the perfect combination of elevation for a view, yet only one floor to go up.

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

I am typically not one for writing reviews but felt the need to do so after our recent stay. Don's condo was perfect for my wife and I with ever appointment that you would need. Waking up every day to see the sunrise over the Sea of Cortez and the bustle of boats heading out for the day was unbeatable. The unit was spotless inside and out. The property manager, Pedro, was on site to meet any and every need you may have. The town is small and quaint and you feel safe with the smiles of all the residents. I don't think a single car or ATV passed by without offering a wave of their hand! If you are looking for a bustling nightlife this is NOT the place. If you (like us) are looking for a perfect "get away" place to truly relax and unwind - I HIGHLY recommend staying in Glen's condo - just don't go over the same dates of our return visit - which we are already planning!

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment: clean and nicely decorated and with a balcony to see beautiful sunrise and with direct access to beautiful beach. Perfect location; only 5 minutes walk to several restaurants and supermarket; 10 minutes walk to snorkel location and kite surfing school. Don was very helpful with providing information about restaurants and location.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the entire stay! From check in to check out, everything went smoothly. Gorgeous property. Pedro was very helpful. He is the caretaker for the condos. Don provided a list of restaurants that we enjoyed. Rented a quad and drove up the beach to Pescadaro. Check out the Lazy Days beach bar.

Best Birthday Weekend Ever

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for my husband and I. It is so quiet and peaceful. Don has thoughtfully provided rocking chairs on the balcony to relax and watch the ocean. We hardly ever heard another person or vehicle. Our 4 day weekend included Baja-ing up an arroyo to a waterfall and out to Puenta Pescado, fishing along the coast, and snorkeling with sea lions, sardines, and turtles in the Parque Nationale. Amazingly, everywhere we went we encountered very few people, so it was very private and personal. Don's tips on the local establishments were right on target. Everything you could want is within walking distance. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful. This was the best birthday weekend I've had for many, many years.

Kick back and relax

  • 5 of 5

We spent 12 great days here in December. Great unit for a couple to kick back and totally relax. Everything went smooth from check in to departure and Don's suggestions for the area were very good. We rented a quad for the duration and really enjoyed it. Can't wait to return again. Thanks.
