BEAUTIFUL CASITA - SPECTACULAR SEA VIEWS AND ON THE BEACH!

Los Barriles Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Casita Del Mar consists of two one bedroom one bath beautifully designed casitas. which have been skillfully created in a Mexican tile motif by local craftsmen.

Wake up in the morning to sounds of the waves and a beautiful view of sunrise! We are on the beach and every room has a water view!

Paddle the 2 person Kayak off the shore and maybe even catch breakfast! There is no fee for the Kayak but bring your own fishing gear!

We provide satelite TV and DSL (broadband) internet in the Vista Casita so that you can keep in contact with friends and family at home! For those who would like to get away from the TV and maybe the 'other world' for a vacation - the Playa Casita offers you a hammock, larger library and TV with a DVD player as well as a hard wired DSL connection.

There is a queen size bed as well as a queen size convertable bed in the living room area all of which together can comfortably accomodate up to 4 persons. An armoire is located in the bedroom to fill up with all of the clothes you will not be wearing!

The kitchen and living room are combined for a more spacious feeling. You will have all the amenaties of a full kitchen including a stovetop, portable oven and full refrigerator and necessities such as a coffee maker and margarita blender! You will also find a microwave oven, toaster and lots of utensils. We also provide a hair dryer and beach towels so that you will not have to pack as much for the flight. The marine themed tiled bath has both a shower and tub a mirrored sink and vanity.

The balcony/patio was designed to take full advantage of a comfortable living style that we enjoy here in southern Baja. Padded lounge chairs will await you. There is roughly 900 sq feet of covered indoor/outdoor living area plus a very large patio! You will find this to be very spacious as compared to most other places you considered renting!

As a guest of ours the following amenaties are available to you: a large private area of the sandy beach plus the use of a two person kayak and paddles. A 'suntaning' area with lounge chairs on the beach.

The view from the front of your casita is just spectacular! In the winter months Humpback and Gray whales pass by enjoying the warmer waters. You can expect some or all of numerous varities of colorful fish, manta rays and porpoise. There is fishing from our beach in front or you can go after the big guys including marlin,sailfish,wahoo, and dorado-(mahi mahi) by chartering a boat. We can help make arraingements for you!

During windsurfing/kiting season (nov-feb) some gear is available to rent in Los Barriles or you can take a kiting lesson at North Beach. We can help you with this too!

There are many other activities in our area that we can help you access or you can just enjoy a relaxful and peaceful vacation! You will be equiped for that just by staying with us at Casita Del Mar!

The casita is on the property of the homeowner yet is very private.It consists of the middle and bottom levels as seen in this picture and extends from one side of the property to the other. The upper level is our home.

This is a truly special place where the rhythm of waves becomes the background music of your vacation! We hope to be able to share it with you!

Builders and Owners

Tim & Anne Mealiffe purchased this apartment in 2005

Anne and I fell in love with Buena Vista & Los Barriles during our first visits 20+ years ago. Now, looking back, we feel even more fortunate to have found such a special place! Our first residence was in Los Barriles. Then in 1998 we had the chance to buy a spectacular lot on the beach in Buena Vista! Seven years later, after selling whatever possible, we jumped into building our dream house Casa del Mar and two casitas, Casitas del Mar. The property was only used by our family until 3 years ago when we opened up to renting the casitas.

I first found this area while exploring for a really good windsurfing place that had warm water and lots of sunshine in the winter! A few years later Anne joined me and we bought our first lot. After moving to the beach we found lots of other interests from kayaking and snorkeling in front to deep sea fishing and protecting turtle nests. Our beach is very wide and, except for times when the winds pick up, is very safe. From April thru October it is more like a big lake!

We hope you will come to discover it yourselves!

We offer some services that others don't such as free calling to the USA & Canada, kayak and beach towels plus hard wired internet access at no additional charge.

The upper casita has a 900 sq ft deck and the lower a large lawn area.

We are in a residential area that appeals to some who want a more restful,or perhaps romantic vacation.

Our beach is all sand!

Wonderful Beach Casita

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a spectacular beach location in Baja California, but you don't want Cabo, this is your place. The Playa Casita is just as advertised, as the listing description and photos are very accurate. The casita was spanking clean and, while simply furnished, had everything we wanted for our stay. While we only stayed a week (we would choose to stay much longer next time) that would be true with a longer stay also. Wolf Management was very responsive and helpful, even making our car rental reservation and fishing guide arrangements for us. We were lucky that the owners were there while we were. They are hands on and helpful with suggestions on fun things to do, restaurants etc. We really enjoyed meeting and talking with them. The kayaks are an added bonus, and we spent quite a bit of time on the water with them. Los Barriles is a short drive or a long walk from the casita. Our favorite restaurant was Campestre Triny. After success fishing, we took our fish to Campestre and they cooked it on the spot. Talk about fresh fish! I would recommend renting a car, although it would certainly be possible to hang out at the casita with plenty to do for a week without a car. We enjoyed going to Cabo Pulmo for the snorkeling and to Santiago for the waterfall and hot springs. These trips required a car. The driving is really quite easy and relatively safe. I highly recommend this place.

The Perfect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this property on the first floor and could not have been more pleased in all that it had to offer. The home was extraordinarily clean, well appointed, quiet, and offered the most beautiful beach front sun rises that you could ask for. The location was perfect in offering a quiet and secluded beach front area; however, it was also only a few minute drive to town for those nights when we were looking for an evening out on the town in Los Barriles. Despite the winter wind letting us down a bit for kite surfing, we still had the most amazing trip we could have asked for. The property had everything that we were looking for and more. Most mornings began with a short walk to the water for the most beautiful sunrise stand up paddle board sessions that anyone could ever ask for. The property also has two kayaks for those who enjoy kayaking and may be hoping to not spend extra on water sport rental costs. The location is also fantastic for day trips both South and/or North for those looking for a bit more of adventure. We were lucky enough to enjoy many dirt road excursions to secluded beaches, mountain biking in the old mining towns just North, surfing at Shipwrecks, and kite surfing just outside of the property when the wind permitted. Everything was perfect from check in to check out and would we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for the perfect beach getaway. We are already counting the days until we can come back and enjoy all that this perfect property has to offer!

Fantastic Spot!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed a week at the end of February, and LOVED it! We hated to leave! Morning sunrise was spectacular!
We were very happy with Wolf Property mgmt. too. They met us at their office on a Sunday evening, gave us all necessary information, then took us to the property to show us around. It was nice to not have any surprises, except pleasant ones!
We used the kayaks quite a bit. One day I went out quite far- you could hear the whales breathing as they surfaced even though they weren't that close. Also had rays jumping nearby. When we got tired of that we went swimming, and just enjoyed the sunshine!
Most people use quads for transportation in Los Barriles so we rented one for a few days. It made the car redundant but was a lot more fun, and a great way to explore the beaches.
We booked a fishing charter through East Cape tackle. Really nice people, and we had a great time on our charter. Rates were quite reasonable for the charter and it was nice to be able to bring some fish home to eat at the casita.
Los Barriles was a great place! I avoid Mexico tourist areas where you are inundated with time share pitches and beach peddlers selling trinkets. Los Barriles was PERFECT for that! As soon as we got out of the San Jose airport, and into our rental car heading up, we were able to relax, and stayed that way until we left. Great feel to the town.
Overall we had a fantastic time. Will definitely go back for some sun.

Wonderful holiday - perfect spot on the ocean!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful, relaxing 2 weeks in Los Barriles at Vista Casita! We will be back again! It is all that is described here and more - very comfortable, beautiful view, gorgeous beach and the lovely little town nearby. We only rented a car for a couple of days to do some exploring but the rest of the time we walked into Los Barriles either along the beach or by the (mostly) quiet back roads which would take us about 25 min at a leisurely pace. If we had a lot of groceries or it was dark after eating dinner out we would catch a taxi in town for the way back home - approx $10. We took the kayak out a few times which was lovely and easier than I thought it would be - the 'ride on top' kayaks are very stable. It was a bit windy at that time of year which made the ocean choppy for kayaking some days but great for watching the kite surfers! The main grocery store was very well stocked with 'Gringo' foods as well as Mexican. We booked our pick-up and return to the airport in Los Cabos through Wolf Management which worked out very well. Wolf Management were very helpful in general during our stay. It was nice that we got to meet Tim and Anne for a few days while we were there - and they had some good suggestions like the going to the 'open mic' night in town to enjoy the locals play music. The rest of the time we had the place to ourselves. Very peaceful! Breakfast at Caleb's is a must! Thanks Tim and Anne!

Fond memories from Baja!

  • 5 of 5
Dear Tim,
The week has flown by all too fast. We both wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in so many ways. We love the casita and all the fine touches. The tile, spacious deck, arches, landscaping, and proximity to the water were more than we had hoped for. As a couple who at points in our lives has done many of our own renovations and built our own home we enjoy being in thoughtful, comfortable spaces.

I couldn't figure out what I was catching off the shore. I'm pretty sure they were lady fish, not very good eating but fun to catch.. They combined the fine bones of a northern with mushy meat. As with most of my efforts the big winners were the tackle stores but I finally found a good spoon to use and kept it out of the rocks.

Thanks for all your suggestions prior to coming. We'll be remembering our long walks, soaring birds, and wonderful places to eat as we head back to Minnesota weather.

The folks at Wolf Property Management were first class. When we couldn't figure out the password to access the internet, they were there in a heartbeat. Plus each of the restaurant, shopping, and fishing recommendations they took time to give were fabulous. The only one I'd add is going to The Pirate for a meal. It is close to the main shopping store. Future guests should not be put off by the siimplicity. You'll never get fish cooked over an open mesquite fire like this any place I know of. The locals in Los Barrilles to a soul were friendly, patient with my faulty Spanish, and beyond gracious to newcomers.

And in an age when being "put on hold" is the norm, we admire your promopt responses and genuine hospitality.

Best wishes,
Robin

Best always,
Robin & Fran

Feliz en Los Barrilles

  • 5 of 5
Vista Casita is a shiny gem in a peaceful paradise.

Although writing my review for Vista Casita has taken longer than expected I will not hesitate to book another escape here. The locals were wonderful, as usual, for yet another Baja visit. The casita is exactly as described and the view is beyond phenomenal. I wish it were my own because it was easy to feel safe and at home here. If you want to live like a local, or just get away from it all, this is the to place engulf in pleasure.

There is nothing like being at a destination where you can completely relax and pueblo Los Barriles is the place to do just that!

We like to cook and bought our fresh seafood from the man with the truck who is across the street from Chapitos. When eating out we loved Tacos Primos and went there more than once (it is just north of Chapitos).If we hadn't bought so much fresh seafood, to cook at the casita, we would have eaten at Tacos Primos more!

If you are up for adventures, the casitas also make a nice home base for day trips to Todos Santos, La Paz and El Triunfo, for example. The drives are easy but watch out for cows, dogs and goats, and try to be back before dark because these locals are known to hang out in the middle of the road at any given time!

If exploring is not your vacation style, just simply indulge in the art of relaxation and enjoy the Sea of Cortez.

The soothing quiet of waves that will lull you to sleep night after night below the starlit sky.
I long to return and it won't be soon enough!
