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!

                                                                      Linda K.

Would highly recommend for a couples get away....can't wait to come back again!

                                                                      We really enjoyed our stay. Beautiful view of the sea with awesome sunrises!

                                                                      Nicole V.

                                                                      Our overall experience was great! Nice accommodations, comfy bed, clean and roomy enough for two. The view was beautiful; the morning sunrises were fabulous and we enjoyed watching the boats go out and come back with their catches. Unfortunately there was an issue with the shower as it smelled like rotten eggs and was not fixed during our stay for 16 days. But all in all the accommodations were great. Everything you need is in walking distance; groceries, restaurants, shopping, pharmacy etc but renting a quad just gives you a better experience and to see more of Los Barilles. We totally recommend Tio Pablo’s and Smokey’s for happy hour, all in walking distance from the condo. We enjoyed eating at the various restaurants, good food and very reasonable! The people of Los barilles were super friendly and helpful. I would totally recommend this place to anyone.

                                                                      BrianSan Diego, CA.

                                                                      "Casa Bella Chica" is a real *gem. My husband & I were both appreciative of a most comfortable King bed. Also, as they say *location, location, location.

                                                                      The property sits in close proximity to everything in town, of course located directly on the beach. The view of The Sea of Cortez is stunning! The property manager Pedro is there to assist in every way, & is happy to do so. Our hostess, Robin assured our stay was a most pleasant experience. We loved Los Barriles, will be back, next year. Of course Casa Bella Chica will be our go to accommodations for our second visit.

                                                                      The location and condo were just what we pictured!

                                                                      Karry B.

The condo is clean and comfortable and within walking distance of shopping and eating and the view of the ocean, pool and sunrise is breathtaking.We did not find any bad food in Los Barriles and all the places Robin recommends are great! Pedro is very helpful and takes care of most anything you need. We are glad to have found this laid back and friendly town and we hope to be back soon! If you are and avid wind or kite surfer, this is the place to come in January. It was windy but the wind kept it from feeling too hot. Perfect bike riding or hiking weather.

                                                                      Michelle e.

                                                                      A nice property, beachfront with awesome sunrises to greet you each morning. Adequately appointed as a studio suite with lots of room for two. Unfortunately we encountered some on and off power interruptions along with a vent issue in the shower which created some unpleasant smells. That said our concerns were addressed and the property manager was onsite to fix what was needed promptly, although the vent issue was not repairable during our stay. Overall appearance of the suite was good, some wear and tear was evident with a broken light fixture and vase along with some high dusting that had been neglected. The grounds and pool area were well looked after, easy beach access and security was never an issue. We would recommend looking at units in this complex, it was a great landing spot for us to experience Los Barriles, we will return.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      I’m really sorry you were so bothered by things that happen in Mexico that are beyond our control. As you well know, we did everything we could in an attempt to alleviate the situation. The electric company has installed a new meter and so the electricity problem that only happened while you were there, is fixed. The homeowners association is actively working on the venting issues of the building as we speak. Thank you for letting us know that a previous guest broke our vase so that it can be replaced.
