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.

Sunrises and Amazing Hosts!!!

  • 5 of 5

We feel so Lucky to have chosen Casa Dulce Vida for our vacation! Doug and Terry are wonderful hosts and our Casa was perfect! We rented a quad from Doug for the week and explored the East Cape everyday! We look forward to our next visit and our "Dream" to someday live close by. Thank You both for your time and friendship while we were there! We will not forget your hospitality!

Had everything we could need!

Doug and Terry are great hosts. They made sure we were comfortable. We would have loved to stay longer. Doug even helped us last minute to find a ride to airport after our plan fell through. Would definitely go back.

Thank you !

Awesome Sunrises!!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice accomodations.

The reason for my trip was to scout out a place to retire and do some fishing.

Unfortunately the North wind kicked in the day after I arrived and I was unable to do any fishing for 7 days.

Doug and Terri had a Quad that I rented for a week. Very reasonable price. Can't beat the price anywhere in town. Trust me I checked.

So with the wind blowing I did a lot of exploring on the Quad.

There are a lot of good restuarants in town and Cindy at East Cape Tackle helped set up my fishing trips when the wind finally receded.

Ended up catching Dorado, Jack Crevalle, Triggerfish, Ladyfish, Snapper and Grouper.

Doug introduced me to the locals who might have some long term rentals to view for my retirement plans.

In the end I located a RV lot at Costa Brava that met my retirement needs thanks in part to Doug and Terri.

I have now wired the money to secure the lot and purchase the 5th wheel. I will be retiring sooner rather than later to this beautiful little village on the Sea of Cortez.

Thanks to my new friends Doug, Terri, Friday and Freddy. Oops also Booger!!

If I hadn't purchased my own place while on vacation, I would definitely rent Doug and Terri's studio apartment. It has everything you need for a very relaxing time.

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.
