Los Barriles Vacation Home
Bienvenidos to Casa Sabina, a beautiful home with one of the best Sea of Cortez views in Los Barriles. We invite you to spend a well-deserved vacation relaxing in our very nicely appointed home and enjoy all that the East Cape and Los Barriles have to offer.
Casa Sabina is located on the hillside above North Beach, which enhances the incredible views and yet is walking distance to the beach. You are just minutes away on foot or quad to your kiting, windsurfing or fishing destination and less than 1 mile from the heart of Los Barriles.
The property is a nearly 1/2 acre, cul-de-sac lot and is entirely fenced for privacy. Native landscaping surrounds the house, including 100+ year old Palo Blanco trees and cactus. A water fountain greets your entry into the front patio which is lush with Bougainvillea. As you enter the main Casa, the view will take your breath away. All living, bedroom and kitchen areas are ocean front-facing with direct access to the back patio from all bedrooms. Our home features Mexican tile floors throughout, as well as air-conditioning (in the bedrooms only), a bathroom for each bedroom, and a very well-stocked kitchen that every gourmet cook would enjoy! Best of all, the entire house and Casita have a Pura UV Water Purification system throughout, so no need to re-supply the 5 gallon jugs from the grocery store. A large and relaxing living room, laundry room and patio with Palo de Arco for shade complete the main Casa.
Construction is now complete on our adjoining 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom Casita and outdoor shower. Each roomy bedroom has its own bathroom & closet area and both rooms share an additional ocean-facing patio. The Casita bedrooms also have air-conditioning, purified water and brand-new beds and linens.
We invite you to relax on our patio, soak up the sun and views, enjoy the daily migration of free-range cattle up in the adjoining arroyo and watch the whales as they make their way along the Sea of Cortez.
Our local caretaker, Ernesto, is available within a moment's notice should you need anything during your stay. Additional housekeeping as well as traditional Mexican meals cooked in the home can also be arranged (for an additional fee).
Please feel free to view our Sun Valley, Idaho ski/mountain VRBO home listing with 44 guest reviews to see that our guests’ comfort, enjoyment and vacation experience is a priority in our homes. VRBO #245096
We hope to see you in Los Barriles soon!

About Michelle Sabina
We live in Hailey, Idaho with our 2 sons, ages 11 and 14. We love all water sports as well as skiing, tennis, road and mountain biking. We have a vacation rental home in Sun Valley, Idaho (VRBO #245096) as well. Just like our Sun Valley home, we have appointed Casa Sabina to make it as close to your 'home away from home' as possible. We invite you relax and enjoy the wonders of Baja in the comfort of our home.
Michelle Sabina purchased this House in 2014
Why Michelle Sabina chose Buenos Aires
We first visited Los Barriles in February, 2014, upon recommendations by several dear friends. By the end of the week, we were looking at real estate and in June we completed the purchase of our home! We fell in love with the wonderful people and culture of Los Barriles and could not wait to become part of the community. We have enjoyed sharing our Idaho home with VRBO travelers since 2008 and cannot think of a better place to add another home to the mix.
What makes this House unique
The views from all 4 bedrooms and every room in our home are breathtaking. We love the location and the fact that downtown Los Barriles is just minutes away (1/2 mile) and North Beach is directly in front of our property. We are close to everything and yet enjoy complete privacy, security and comfort in our home.

Great place to stay!
The house is setup great for multiple families or just a big group. The views are awesome. It felt safe and was very close to the beach and town.
Many thanks for your kind words regarding your stay at Casa Sabina. We are thrilled your enjoyed your stay, the incredible views from our property and felt the location and layout worked so well for your group. It is our intention to create a vacation 'home away from home' and we are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope to see you back again very soon!

Spent 5 days at Casa Sabina taking kiteboarding lessons at Exotikite. House was ideal for 4 people - plenty of space and we all had our own bedrooms and baths. Kitchen is large and very well equipped although we dined out frequently. Casita is an outstanding sushi restaurant featuring locally sourced fresh tuna and they take reservations. Gecko's is close by and on the beach and excellent as well. We dined in one night with excellent chicken from Ochoa's (across from Casita). Michelle and her local management company were very responsive and made everything easy. Los Barilles is the real Mexico and we can't wait to return.
Many thanks for the great recap on your recent stay at Casa Sabina. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed our home and the convenient location to great restaurants, beaches and of course kiting. We certainly look forward to welcoming you back again very soon!

What a fantastic host, home and vacation we had at Casa Sabina at Christmas !
From the moment we booked our vacation, to the moment we left, our host (owner Michelle ) was unbelievably helpful, responsive , professional and so welcoming.. She helped us figure out which airlines were best for flying into Cabo, helped us find out where to rent an extra ATV, and rented us their own ATV. The home - was FANTASTIC and SO much more spacious than we had expected. We were welcomed to the house by fresh guacamole, salsa ,chips and Margaritas waiting for us in the fridge. This is one of those few occasions when the vrbo photos dont capture the spaciousness, cleanliness and view of the interioir and exterior of the home . The extra 2 bedroom 2 bathroom casita was a welcome surprise. Plenty of outdoor and rooftop soace to enjoy the view and have safe storage for kitesurfing and diving gear. The ourdoor shower was used by all, after a dusty day in town and in the beach.. also we so appreciated the chefs kitchen with fully stocked spices and plenty of kitchen supplies to make ourselves at home. As for the town of Los Barilles, we loved the dusty roads, cute town with a great cafe (Encinalito) , a barrage of Mexican cafes and an incredible fresh sushi restaurant (Casita!)
We wish we could rent this place every year!
Many thanks Michelle, you topped our charts of VRBO rentals (25!h )! I hope we will meet you someday!
Giselle and Thomas,
Thank you for such a wonderful review of Casa Sabina. Your experience is exactly what we intended when we provisioned our home for guests to enjoy. Thank you for noting that photos often do not convey the beauty of the area and the feeling and amenities that our home provides. We cannot wait to welcome all of you back and really hope we can meet in person before then. All the best to you both and your boys in 2018!

We had a wonderful time on our first trip to East Cape Baja.
Casa Sabina was as lovely as promised. Fridge was stocked with welcome margaritas, chips and salsa. Kitchen was very well equipped. Decor beautiful. Michele was very responsive before and during the trip. We had a minor glitch with lighting and A/C and she had groundskeeper Ernesto over within an hour to address. We will be back!
Bob & Sally,
Thank you very much for staying with us and for the delightful review. We are thrilled to hear that you had such a great time at Casa Sabina. We look forward to welcoming you back again very soon!

Family of 7 for Christmas. The house is well equipped. Thank you for the soap, shampoo and conditioner. The kitchen has everything you need and we love to cook. The beds are firm and comfortable. Cocktails on the rooftop is a must. We hired Norma to cater two meals. The chicken mole was fantastic. We rented ATV's which was a blast. Unfortunately the weather was not great. Cloudy to partly cloudy all days but one. We needed to wrap up with the soft blankets to eat dinner outside.
As a family of 7 we had to bring in lounge chairs each night to watch a movie. The living room seats 5. One couch and 1 love seat.
The beach is a 10 minute walk. Sadly, due to weather, we never needed to haul chairs, towels etc. An ATV would be perfect to haul your gear. It is not cheap to rent the ATV.
We loved our stay. Casa Sabina is highly recommended. Thank you.
Fantastic views and great location
Casa Sabina was perfect for our group. The kitchen is wonderful and wanting for nothing. The large open area of the main house invites great participation and conversation during meal prep. We made fresh salsa every day and and had so much fun around the kitchen island.
Eating outside daily and taking in the great views was equally enjoyable. The covered patio and open air patio allowed for everyone to enjoy their outside time. The household book, and suggestions within, was so helpful.
Used the SUP boards, and enjoyed watching the colorful kiteboard sails. Even had some successful kiteboarding lessons.
We had a car, but during the day enjoyed walking the beach into town and returning on the main road across the arroyo.
We will return to Casa Sabina.
Thank you for such a nice review and for sharing a few of your experiences while staying at Casa Sabina. We're so happy to hear your group had a great time and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future!
