About the property

Oceanfront Studio Condo at the Villa De Cortez next to the Palmas De Cortez

Luxurious 2nd floor beachfront villa #1203 invites you to walk out your door to the white sand beach and refreshing pool. This property along with its sister property, palmas de cortez resort, are recognized as 'the place to stay' in Los Barriles.

We are located in the heart of the quaint fishing village of Los Barriles, Baja California Sur and within walking distance to shops, grocery stores and wonderful restaurants. Due to our central location, no rental car is necessary and transportation is available to and from the San Jose del Cabo and La Paz airport.

We have been told by our return guests that we have the nicest, most private unit in our complex, both for location and amenities.

Our villa is approximately 600 sq. feet in size. There is a king size bed, sectional couch, dining table for 4, full kitchen, bath and tub. We have central air conditioning as well as a ceiling fan.

An out door shower is provided for your return from the beach. This villa is perfect for singles or couples.

It is beautifully appointed with marble countertops, marble floors and stainless steel appliances.

Enjoy a flat screen DISH HDTV for those of you that want to stay connected to the outside world or don't want to miss american idol.

Our villa comes with *free* wireless internet service in our unit, so bring your laptop and stay connected while you're away.

The Villa de Cortez complex has a private beachfront infinity edge pool with swim up bar plus separate hot tub and small children's pool. There is also a nine hole executive golf course adjacent to the property. The Van Wormer's new restaurant, the Bay View (formerly Solomon's Landing) is located between the Villa de Cortez and the Palmas de Cortez resorts. The food is excellent and you can't beat the view! Be sure to ask about their

Daily happy hour.

The East Cape is world famous for its sport fishing and is considered to be the 'fishing capital of the world'. Fishing charters are available just steps away at the adjoining hotel Palmas de Cortez owned and operated by Van Wormer resorts. Don't fish? You can charter a boat for a day of sight seeing, whale watching, diving or snorkeling right next door.

For those of you that kite surf or wind surf, you can go right out to the beach from the villa and take off. No need to walk or drive to north beach.

Guests are invited to use the amenities at the Palmas de Cortez which include a day spa,(the best massage i've ever had), tennis courts, gym and a variety of water and outdoor activities such as jet skiing, kayaking or shore fishing and ATV rentals.

Cabo Pulmo, with world renowned diving and snorkeling, is just an hour south. You can rent an ATV within walking distance so you can explore the miles of roads and trails that lead to deserted beaches or down an arroyo up into the mountains. A day trip to Santiago, 30 minutes away, provides waterfalls, hot springs, and authentic mexican pueblo charm.

You will fall in love with this town and the people just as we did. Not only are the locals friendly and accommodating but you will feel safe and secure in a luxurious environment with all the flavor of old Mexico.

If you want a little more excitement, you can drive south about 90 minutes to Cabo San Lucas and go see Sammy Hagar's famous Cabo Wabo. After a day in 'the city', you'll be anxious to get back to the serenity and relaxation of Los Barriles.

About Robin Jackman

I am I a retired optometrist and my husband deals in collectables and is a world class Disc golf player. We enjoy racing cars, camping and traveling and love to get warm and enjoy all the wild life in the Sea of Cortez in the winter.

Robin Jackman purchased this condo in 2013

Why Robin Jackman chose Los Barriles

My husband and I fell in love with this beautiful town and magical beach the very first time we visited. The atmosphere is so peaceful and laid back that you can't help but relax. We wanted a winter get away from the snow and a place we could drive to. Los Barriles is everything we wanted and so much more than we expected. We can hop on a plane from Durango Colorado in the morning and be in our villa by lunch time!

What makes this condo unique

One of the things we love the most about our villa is the view of the Sea of Cortez and the coastline. This is our 2nd property at the Villa De Cortez. We looked at a lot of property in Los Barriles and couldn't find anything that had all the amenities, location and atmosphere as the Villas. We love 'outdoor living' and being oceanfront is the way to go. Don't forget a margarita on the balcony at happy hour watching the boats return from a day of fishing. You can never get enough!

Guestbook comments from the owner


I can’t let another day go by where I don’t email you and say thank-you! We love your place. I am interested in the one bedroom as well…I think you rent that also? My husband and I plan on spending a lot more time in the East Cape in the future and we love that location. In short, everything was perfect, we even brought home fish!!

Perfect 1st Trip

  • 5 of 5

We weren't sure what to expect in coming to Los Barrilles. The condo was absolutely perfect for our stay and the information provided was spot on. We hit 5 out of the 7 restaurants listed in the binder left by the owner and we loved every meal. Sitting on the deck in the morning drinking coffee was relaxing. The pool at the Condo as well as next door were great. We hope to be back next year!

The view from this unit was spectacular. Everything worked and was very comfortable. Lots of information regarding the surrounding area and points of interest. We will definitely stay again if this adorable apartment is available.

We really enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable bed! Enjoyed the fabulous view.

  • 5 of 5

The view from this unit is great we watched sunrise from the balcony everyday. The pools were very nice too. Some extras that we enjoyed were the cooler on wheels which made trips the store way easier, loved the makeup mirror and the blow dryer which was very high powered unlike what is usually provided. Great water pressure. Location close to many good restaurants. Pedro was very helpful which we appreciated. Totally recommend this condo.

My wife and I absolutely loved this property. While the location was perfect, the condo is what made the trip. Felt way more homey inside, with all the amenities one could want! We already disscused returning next year. Hopefully we will be staying right here again.
