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.

Wonderful wedding venue and getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing, romantic, and fun wedding at this home. It is a perfect set up for the ceremony on the beach and the party on the newly done patio. The pool was great and good for small kids with supervision. They accommodated our needs like getting two pack n plays for the babies and lining up day excursions and in house massages. Beautiful home that feels like a home and a great family place. We can't wait to come back.

Wheelchair users paradise

  • 5 of 5

For people who need wheelchairs for ambulation It is often difficult to find a vacation setting to suit their and their families and friends needs. Hacienda Del Mar in Los Barriles is just the place. The setting on the beach with an infinity spool is breathtaking and the living space of 5 bedrooms and several spaces to gather both inside and out were perfect for our group of 10 adults. Other reviews have described all the wonders of this villa so I want to focus on how accessible it is. The rooms are huge and on one level, there is a hydraulic lift available to assist transfers and another one at the site of the pool. For adventurous types, I was blown away when a battery operated beach chair was delivered to our door. I did not go fishing, but I understand that there is an accessible fishing boat available too.

The staff, Josh and Natalia, were always available to answer questions and to assist in our plans. We had a wonderful cook, Tina, on 2 occasions when we wanted to stay in and enjoy the sunset--Tina was a marvel--she set and cleared the table, washed the dishes and prepared 3 course meals for us at a price less than 10 of us going to a restaurant.

The small town is making an effort to accommodate persons in wheelchairs--there are lots of curb cuts and make shift ramps going into buildings (none would pass ADA approval, but they worked!). If you like a lot of action, this'might not be the place for you but we were thrilled with the relaxing atmosphere--a welcome change from our hectic lives. i actually read 4 books in the week we were there.

Hacienda Del Mar is FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect. Right on the beach but within walking distance of shopping and dining in the town of Los Barriles. The property is perfectly laid out for guests to relax and entertain. The kitchen is huge and well equipped. The dining and patio areas are equally big and well appointed. The five bedrooms easily accommodated our party of 12, in fact there was lots of room for more. The pool is beautiful and the entire property is very well maintained. Most importantly, Larry and Natalia are fantastic. Their devotion to service and attention to detail is unparalleled. We felt like they were our private concierges, who happily and expertly arranged all of the details of our Baja adventure. We could not have been happier with our 12 wonderful days at Hacienda Del Mar and will definitely make it an annual destination!

Unique home on the water

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home. The grandchildren and I really enjoyed the infinity pool - great place to watch the kite surfers and other water activities. Paddle boards included! Bedrooms are roomy and comfortable; liked having private bath for each room. Perfect kitchen/living area. Very convenient location, close to restaurants and shopping. Los Barriles is a quaint, lovely spot in Mexico.

The best place to stay in Los Barriles!

  • 5 of 5

Hacienda Del Mar is amazing! Larry and his staff are very attentive and were accessible to help with anything we needed. We had our wedding at the house and it was the most perfect location! We had the ceremony down on the beach and the house provided an ideal location for the reception/ party. All of our family was able to stay on site and everyone commented on how great the house was. The house provides plenty of space for everyone to have some privacy. Hacienda Del Mar is in a great location - close to downtown so you can walk everywhere you need to. The beach out front is beautiful. The new pool and hot tub were also a hit! So beautiful! The house was stocked with the essentials and very clean. You will not be disappointed with choosing to stay here!

The Perfect Mexican Wedding location

  • 5 of 5

The moment that we walked through the Hacienda del Mar, we couldn't believe our eyes, and it just kept getting better. The hacienda, centrally located in Los Barriles, served as wedding and party central. No one had to drive to the wedding, and, especially, no one had to drive home.

The rooms were clean and spacious, the kitchen was completely stocked, and my daughter and new son-in-law loved the casita. We also took advantage of Larry's fishing boat, and the groom landed an 80 pound sailfish the day after the wedding.

The wedding was just behind the house on the beach, and all the catering, food, beverages, mariachi band, and dance music was easily accommodated throughout the evening.

I highly recommend the Hacienda del Mar.
