Guestbook comments from the owner

Doug and his wife Terri great! Casa Dulce Vida is in a quiet but close to town neighborhood. Spent a relaxing 7 days at the house, and was greeted with sincere efforts to make my stay as pleasant as possible. I was able to work remotely, watch the sunrises and sunsets with great views, and had a wealth of local information at my disposal, all thanks to my great hosts.

The property was everything it is listed to be

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 nights, it is a nice large studio. Very clean and had everything we needed. Doug and Terri are wonderful hosts, making sure we had everything we needed. We also rented their 4wheeler for the week so we were able to explore the area, though as stated in their post you can walk all over town and to the beach from the property. We will definitely stay there next time we travel to Los Barilles.

Wonderful property in the heart of Lo Barilles

  • 5 of 5

This was our third vacation to LB but our first stay at Casa Dulce Vida. I'm happy to say it won't be our last, what a great vacation rental. Truly a gem. The hosts, Doug and Terri (and Fred and Friday) - are amazing. The apartment is FULLY appointed, comfy bed, comfy surroundings, great kitchen, close to everything, we wanted for nothing (except to prolong our vacation). We scoped this rental out last year after a bad experience at another location, so grateful we found it. We spent a month here and just kicked back, this will be our go to home away from home, super people, super place, can't recommend this property enough.

close to all you need

  • 5 of 5

we stayed for 3 weeks, walked all over town numerous times, easy access to every restaurant, beautiful beach, great for swimming. We walked as far as Buena Vista on the beach, picked shells, watched the kite-surfers, local fishermen catching from the shore. We did rent a quad from Doug for couple of days, nothing but fun to drive and so easy to get around. The condo is great, lots of room & well stocked. Doug & Terri, terrific people, as were everyone we met in LB. Would recommend staying here without hesitation....Graham & Maria.

Casa Dulce Vida is my paradise. This is our third visit and will continue to go every year if not sooner. Our vacation started off great by being picked up at the airport by Doug. He was very personable and easy to talk to. Casa Dulce vida is clean comfortable and beautiful. Kitchen was very clean and equipped with everything we need. Doug and Terri were available when we needed anything. They offered quad rentals which was perfect for cruising around town and exploring the beautiful LB. The sea of Cortez is only a few blocks away. I love the calmness that it brings. I was able to swim only a few feet from dolphins. LB is a friendly happy town. I love love love Casa Dulce Vida and I am so happy that I found this gem. Thanks Doug and Terri for an awesome LB home away from home!

comfortable, clean and cozy and walking distance to town and the beach

  • 5 of 5

Doug and Terri and their 2 dogs Fred and Friday were great hosts. They are friendly and cordial and shared places to visit, eat and shop. We rented their ATV for the week which was a great idea as we were able to easily go to town to shop and visit places along the beaches that would not be accessible by car. We would definitely recommend their fully equipped studio to friends and family and would not hesitate to stay their again.Thank you for making our first visit to Los Barriles a memorable and relaxing vacation

The owners Doug and Terry are really nice folks who made us feel welcome for our three-week vacation. We felt right at home walking into this clean and cute studio. It had everything we needed towels, linens, gas stove, good pots & pans (easy to clean too) full size refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, blender, plates, utensils, and more. Terry will wash towels and sheets as needed. There are local laundry mats or services that will wash your clothes for a few pesos. We were also welcomed to help ourselves to their vegetable garden. It is a short walk to the beach, stores and restaurants. Wifi was strong and having large TV with lots of channels/movies options was great. There is so much to do in this little fishing town, as well as exploring the surrounding areas. We also enjoyed Friday and Fred (the guard dogs). Great place to vacation and would definitely stay here again!
