AMAZING Beachfront Condo with unobstructed views - Villa de Cortez

Bedrooms Studio
Space 650 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 nights


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 Los Barriles

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.

Comfy well located condo

  • 5 of 5

Great view, close to everything but away from the minor busyness of the town. Beautiful beach and pool area. Very walkable to nearby shops. Pedro the building manager was super helpful, great neighbours too. Bayview restaurant right next door has tasty food and drink and there are lots of excellent bars and restaurants in town. Having an ATV helpful but not essential. Comfortable king bed and rocking chairs on the lanai. We had a wonderful stay. Don was very prompt with messages and provided helpful information for our stay. Loved the area!

Outstanding views from condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Villas de Cortez, condo #1201, was just wonderful! The condo was perfect in size, the bed was comfortable, and the view/location was FANTASTIC! The Villas' pools were awesome, with a swim-up bar next to the bar/restaurant, and having beach access so close to swim in the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez was a bonus. Being adjacent to the Hotel de Palmas was a real plus too. The resort grounds were very clean, well-maintained and the staff was very friendly. We played tennis, enjoyed delicious meals in their restaurants, and did I mention fishing??? GREAT fishing spot! We caught four dorado within the first hour being out, and a sailfish the next day. It was a little windy the first two days, but the last two were just perfect! Thanks Don!

Great Stay in Don's Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished two weeks in 1201 and are sad to leave. Location is end unit with a larger balcony and a bed with a view. We've been coming to this stretch of beach for many years, so no surprises. It's all good. Many good restaurants and amenities in Los Barriles. Fishing opportunities and fantastic, uncrowded beaches. We appreciated Don's quick response to any queries - he's a great resource for local information. We loved it so much, we've already booked the same for next year! Susanne & Gord

Hurricane Newton made it even more unforgetable and special!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Don's condo and the arrangement with Hotel Palmas De Cortez worked out well. Waking to gorgeous sunrises, while sipping coffee over the colorful Sea of Cortez every morning on the porch is memorable and a great way to start the day. The staff was always readily available, and Pedro, the property manager was always more than helpful. The condo was meticulous and well laid out. We only had one neighbor and being on the end unit, you get an even more expansive view.

We enjoyed the onsite restaurants, bars and amenities. We took a panga out fishing one morning and were dining on our wonderfully grilled Mahi Mahi that evening, served three different delicious ways. The infinity pool in the private area of the villas was used daily by us, along with a drink or two, including a birthday shot called monkey "something".

The location is ideal, within walking distance of many restaurants, groceries, rentals, etc., including paddle boarding, ATV rentals, and other activities. We took advantage of the paddle boarding and ATV rentals.

It's clear Don looks out for his guests too, we had the experience of being there during Hurricane Newton and he was checking in regularly to give us advice and make sure we were okay.

An unforgettable birthday trip, and it was Celine's first time in Los Barilles. We'll be going back soon.

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.
