Hacienda del Mar is a luxurious, 5 bedroom (all with en-suite bathrooms), wheelchair accessible beachfront villa in the heart of Los Barriles, located on the Sea of Cortez. Hacienda del Mar sleeps up to 16, and is perfect for family and friends to come together to relax, explore the beach, fish, kite board, windsurf, kayak or stand-up paddle board (SUP).

Hacienda del Mar is about an hour north east of San Jose del Cabo airport, making a perfect get away from the Cabo crowds.

Sit outside on the patio with a cold drink watching whales, Dolphins and manta-rays that jump out of the water and flop back down. If the wind is up, watch the kite boarders and windsurfers that launch right in front of the house. The outside area offers multiple places to hang-out including your own private Palapa bar overlooking the beach and Sea of Coortez. The house also offers a huge outdoor palapa room with a 90' built-in couch, patio tables and chairs, a wet-bar (a sink, stove and refrigerator) area with bar stools where you can sit back, read a book, eat, play games and still see everything going on at the beach and on the water. Move chairs to the interior courtyard and be soothed by the water fountain and watch the birds as they come in for a drink.

The Sea of Cortez is east facing, making for amazing sunrises. In the back, through the courtyard, the sunsets over the Sierra la Laguna Mountains are just as spectacular.

Looking for the right spot for your wedding on the beach? Look no further -- you and your guests will have plenty of room to enjoy your special day! Move the tables out of the palapa room (approximately 1,500 square feet) and you have an instant dance floor!

The Master with a King bed overlooking the Sea of Cortez, has a walk-in closet and a sliding glass/screen door to get out to the patio; a second master suite is off the amazing fountain courtyard with 2 Queen beds, walk-in closet and a glass/screen door to get out to the courtyard.

About Larry Cooper, Los Cabos Adventures

My first visit to Los Barriles was in 1979. I rented a motor home hooked up my 24’ Skipjack sportfisher and headed from Coronado, CA to points unknown with my my wife Terri, & 2 kids who were 4 & 2. We had no itinerary and 3 months to kill so off we went for an adventure that would change our lives forever.

First stop, Mulege 7.5 hours north of Los Barriles. Stayed for a week, fished, played, and had fun in Bahia Conception. Next stop Loreto area specificaly Puerto Escondido. Stayed 4 days and off we went (not impressed). Next stop La Paz gross, just a big city no charm.

Next stop Los Barriles. We looked at each other and said this is it. Heaven on earth! Found a camp spot right on the beach at the now famous Martin Verdugos Motel & Camping resort. We never moved another inch. We came back every year until 1992 when we were on our way down driving with our last load of building materials to finish our new home when a bus hit our utility trailer causing us to jackknife and roll over. The accident resulted in a spinal cord injury for me and just 3 stitches for my wife. Since then, as a Qudrapeligic, designer and builder, I have finished 12 luxury high-end homes including our newest casa and guest Villa, “VillaTranquillo”.

We welcome you to our “Little slice of heaven” and hope you find it as magical as we do!

In 2007 I started Los Cabos Adventures which is a sportfishing and whale watching charter corporation. We have designed and custom outfitted mexico's only completely wheelchair accessible sportfisher.

We now live in the main Villa from October through May. Spending the summer in the high sierras north of Truckee, CA.

My kids are now 33 and 35. We now have 4 grandchildren so the love of Los Barilles will continue through out our next generations.

Larry Cooper, Los Cabos Adventures purchased this villa in 2015

Why Larry Cooper, Los Cabos Adventures chose Los Barriles

Sadly I inherited this property from my father who passed away in 2008. I made him visit Los Barriles in 1982 with my mom. I knew they would fall in love with the community, the beaches, and the Sea of Cortez. They loved it so much they began purchasing as much beach front property that was available.

They first went in with 2 friends and built all together on one lot. When they outgrew that situation he purchased Hacienda del Mar which then was owned by one of the Bartels and James wine cooler founders. He proceeded to turn the 1,200 sq ft, 2 bedroom, 2 bath beach house into a 7,000 sq ft Hacienda.

He designed it and contracted it himself using a forward thinking, green, recycled building product called 'In-Steel Panels'. Extremely popular today for its earthquake strength, ER values, and constructed from renewable materials.

He always referred to it as 'his work of art' which is why I have restored it to better than it's original condition updating cabinets doors, furnishings and custom amenities. My sisters wanted to sell it, but I could not 'let his work of art go'

Instead it is up to date and ready for your enjoyment.

What makes this villa unique

As our guest you will receive the awesome VIP membership card as our gift. This entitles you to discounts and free food items at ALL of our finest restaurants in the village. You also have FREE access to our Concierge service desk where we can book any adventure tour you could think of for as much as 20% less than if you booked it on your own.

We offer a full compliment of beach going supplies with ALL the toys to make your stay amazing. Kayaks, Stand up paddle boards (SUP's), boogie boards, masks, snorkels and all the beach stuff. Beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys for the kids and beach towels.

We also rent our Honda 2x4 300sx quads for a nominal daily or very affordable weekly rate.

I fell in love with this home because of what it meant to my father, it's unique centralized beach front location and proximity to all the amenities the village of Los Barriles has to offer.

When you stay at Hacienda del Mar you will see his unique artworks hanging within the entire Villa.

This is our third year staying at this fabulous place. Larry Cooper, the owner and his staff Natalia, Josh, Roger, all the way through the cleaning staff are just amazing. Immaculately taken care of, the house and grounds are very beautiful! Natalia is awesome to work with. She handles everything from shopping to setting up excursions or anything else you might need. Just sit back and relax. We have shared our experience with many of our friends and family and have all said what a beautiful place and are going back 💕?😎?. Love, love, love. We definitely will be going back again, can’t wait!!!

Perfect Destination

  • 5 of 5

Josh and Natalia picked us up at the airport and took us to the house. Natalia lined up all of our activities and Josh made sure we made it to all our destinations. The house was wonderful! Plenty of room for 5 couples. My husband is in a wheelchair and everything was very manageable from the lift in the hot tub to getting in the boat for fishing. We all felt very pampered starting with in house massages, the GREAT meals from Lupe and all the time and personal service Josh took to make sure we were all having a memorable experience in Los Barriles. Larry has a great team of people to make your vacation unforgettable. We can't wait to come back to paradise!

Can’t beat the location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property in a perfect location. It easily accommodated five couples. Lupe and Maria Jose prepared two wonderful meals at the house (fish entre and tres leches cake were especially tasty.) we ran into a rare cool spell so the hot tub was well-utilized.

The Hacienda Del Mar is BEAUTIFUL!! Eleven people stayed very comfortably! I hope to return one day!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first of hopefully many family vacations and it was AMAZING!! We loved every moment that we were there! The sunrises from the deck, master bedroom and pool/hot tub were GORGEOUS! A small grocery store and a larger grocery store are both within walking distance! The restaurants were all delicious! A few of our favorites were La Casitas (the sushi was terrific), Caleb’s (for breakfast) and Compestra Triny (shrimp stuffed baked potato)...all are in walking distance!! Renting quads and riding in the arroyos is a MUST DO!!! We fished, we rode horses, we kayaked, we paddle boarded and we relaxed at the villa in the pool and hot tub every day! We enjoyed watching the kite surfers glide through the water...entertaining us with flights and flips! We walked to the Lazy Days Beach Bar and enjoyed Banana coladas! The beautifully furnished home was comfortable and homey! The tequila and wine Larry left for us was such a nice gift! We all had a shot before we unpacked to celebrate our trip! Natalia was a wonderful help...getting us reservations, getting us to salsa dance, reserving quads and setting up fishing trips...always cheerfully!!! It was the trip of a lifetime!!!

This spacious 5 bedroom suite HOME had everything we could possibly want or need. On arrival we were totally blown away by spaciousness of courtyard, kitchen, pool/hot tub area, and bedrooms. The home was immaculately clean and supplied with all of our basic needs. We had stopped at COSTCO on the way to Los Barriles and stocked up on all other groceries.

If you are looking for a relaxing no worries vacation, this is the place for you! Leave the hustle bustle at home ! This HOME says RELAX-ENJOY!

Every morning we watched the sun rise from pool area with cup of coffee in hand. You can stay on pool deck all day with book, drinks, sunshine, and Kite Boarders and flapping stingrays to watch. Take a dip in infinity pool to cool off and enjoy the hot tub after sunset for an amazing display of stars !

Beach extends right off the back of the home and our group used 2 kayaks and longboards supplied by Larry everyday! We also rented ATV's and enjoyed hiking to the waterfall to the North and the awesome isolated beaches to the South. Guys took fishing trip with Josh right off the beach at house, and were able to catch a dorado (mahi-mahi) which we took to Camprestre Triny a local restaurant (within walking distance) and had grilled that very evening for dinner! INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS !

We had very inexpensive meals at all local restaurants. Triny, La Playa, El Gecko, Barrels Grille, and Las Casita. We walked everywhere and enjoyed delectable Mexican fare ( fresh guacamole made table side at El Gecko).

The only day we really used our rented van was to arrive and depart from Cabos airport, and to take a day trip to La Paz. In La Paz we were able to swim with the Whale Sharks, a once in a lifetime experience !

We cannot say enough about our host and home owner, Larry Cooper, he was so helpful with restaurant and whale shark adventure suggestions! And then his assistant Natalia carried out all reservations and details to make our excursions reality. She was so helpful and enthusiastic. To Josh who made sure the guys caught something on fishing trip, he ignored Dorado on his line to ensure ours was brought on board ! Graciela we didn't meet you , but home was immaculately clean !

Thank you to all of you!

Lovely home on the Gulf of California

  • 4 of 5

The Hacienda del Mar is a wonderful home for a family retreat overlooking the sea. Our morning ritual was to get up early and go out on the deck to star gaze and watch the beautiful sunrise! The home is spacious for large groups with a lovely deck with hot tub and infinity pool.

While the house is wheelchair accessible, the town is not!! There are dirt roads, cattle grates and curb cut outs that are impossible for a manual wheelchair to navigate. The sidewalks are full of holes and poles that interfere with passage. If we had not rented a car, the person in the wheelchair would have been confined to the house for the two weeks we were there. There is no live TV, you must stream from your own device or play a DVD.

If you care to whale watch it is worth the hassle to go to Cabo San Lucas! We wasted our time and money going on a 'whale watching trip' from the beach in front of the house. Since the dock in town was not available, we were instructed to get to the boat from the beach by boarding from a little fishing dingy. A little precarious for four 70 year olds in a choppy sea! The boat was a fishing vessel, not made to accommodate 8 people. After slowly cruising for a while we realized that the captain did not know where to look for whales as he asked us where we wanted to go! Needless to say, we did not see anything and had to go through the same process with the bouncing dingy to get back to the beach!

We did enjoy the cook, Mariachi band, excellent massage therapist and the daily display of colorful kite boarders. The staff provided us with just about everything that we needed. Hacienda del Mar is a wonderful home for a relaxing, low key family get away that will provide you with lots of special memories!

Owner's Response: I just read this review and had to laugh. I have lived here for 40 years; the last 25 have been in a wheelchair. Yes, the curb cuts are a joke and yes they put palm trees and light posts in the middle of sidewalks. This however does not make it inaccessible. I never use my car to go anywhere; I just roll down the street. This is actually way safer than the ridiculous sidewalks. As far as dirt roads and cattle guards are concerned there is 1 cattle guard that we put a piece of plywood over when crossing and the 1 dirt road is highly compacted. Bumpy, but easily passable and it is only 75 yards long. Yes, their whale watching tour was a bust no whales that day. The day before there were huge pods all over. Unfortunately they have tails and move around. Obviously there is no such thing as a whale hang out. All captain can do is go to known paths of travel. As far as the boat, they gave us notice the day before. We scrambled to find the biggest boat available, a 32' Skipjack. I warned them it would be tight but they wanted to go anyway. Yes, getting on and off the boat was a challenge as the dock are pulled out of the water this time of year. Looking back on this, I was trying to save them the 2-hour trip down to Cabo, but obviously I chose wrong. After 5 years of booking my accessible Villas, these are the first guests to EVER say anything negative about our amazing little village.
