Los Barriles House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)+optional 2Br/1bath (sleep 12)

Luxury estate on the sandy beach of Punta Pescadero (point of the fisherman) where the sun shines 350 days per year. Enjoy world-class fishing on the Sea of Cortez where the only waves are generated by the wind. No wind and this is like a lake! No swells, no sea sickness, and no long trips in the boat. One to three hours of fishing with pick up on the beach in front of the house at 8 AM is usually enough to catch your dinner! Want fresh fish or lobster caught that morning without you going fishing, just ask and it will be delivered, and even cooked for you if you wish. Add a two-person guitar background to your dinner by the pool and you will truly feel you are in heaven, the hustle of life has been left behind.

Walk the beach for 'miles' without seeing anyone! No one selling anything, just walk and enjoy undisturbed nature at its best.

The house is finished with travertine floors, marble and granite countertops, marble bathrooms, and slate around the pool with palapa bar. The palapa sitting area on the beach is the place to be with a nice book to read. This is the life!

Griselda will be your maid for your entire stay, washing your dishes and clothes while keeping the property immaculate. Jose Maria is the manager of the property who will also be there every day to look after your needs. Jose Maria speaks fluent English, so no need to worry about language. Just relax and let him worry about your activities.

There are two master bedrooms with queen-sized beds. One has its own private bath and the second shares the full bath with the bunk room where four can sleep. Additional sleeping is possible on the couches or pool lounge chairs.

OPTIONAL rental of the lower floor of the main house with the extra 2 bedrooms and kitchen results in beds for 12 people. Inquire about extra costs and your needs.

**NO ONE will be in the 'main house' when you are in the guesthouse and vice versa. I adjust my trips around when there is a guest.

Bring with you: passport, notorized authorization for any minor children not accompanied by both parents, sunscreen, hats, swimsuits, sunglasses, sandals, light windbreaker (December to March only), get international access for your cell phone before leaving, buy your own liquor and food on your drive from the airport. Order fresh tortillas from the village of Cardonal to be delivered daily (Jose Maria, the house manager and your conscierge, arranges). Do not try to import beef or chicken into mexico. If you wish, you can ask to go to Costco on your way to the property and stock up for a long stay.

Enjoy the property and the beauty of Mexico. You will return 'walking slow, thinking slow, and talking slow' guaranteed!

About The Owner

I am a dentist, orthodontic educator, and I live to fish, my number 1 hobby. I found this location by being a private pilot, Punta Pescadero has the #1 paved airstrip in Baja outside of controlled airports.

The Owner purchased this house in 1994

Why The Owner chose Los Barriles

The best fishing in the world, no one selling you anything, the fantastic attitudes of the locals, and of course the airstrip. I do not have a plane anymore, having crashed it in 2001 (no one hurt).

What makes this house unique

Remote elegance and luxury. Whatever you want, just ask and my house manager will make it happen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sept 7-14, 2007: Don, We had a great time. It went so fast though! Jose Maria and Griselda were wonderful, as you said. Jose is a gem.The food in at the little town,Cardonal? On the road, was the best we have ever had.

Snorkeling to the left of the house was the best, so many fish! The fishing was good too, they brought home sea bass, we grilled and it was great. Had lobster too, wow.

We found 2 giant conchs!! They were as big as my head!! I think that was my highlight, so so cool!

Once again,Thank you for letting us stay.

This place is a great place to stay. Very, very clean, maintained daily.

Their is a multitude of things to do in a place away from the crowds.

Don, the owner set us up and told us everything we needed, and what to expect. Jose Maria the manager was awesome, and speaks great English. He also picked us up and returned us to the airport! I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for more of a secluded

non touristy, peaceful vacation.

Owner's Response: This is my first year sharing this property with others and it has been a pleasure. We do "take care of you", not just expecting a guest to jump off the plane and find the true beauty of Baja, Mexico. I love this part of Mexico and others are now finding the same. Thank you for the nice words.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay with amazing views of the ocean and steps to the beach. There are only a few houses nearby so the beach was deserted the whole week we were there. The fishing was amazing as was the kitesurfing. Unless you plan to stay at the house all day we found renting a car useful but beware the road is more of a dirt track. Jose Maria and Griselda were wonderful and it was a treat to have our laundry done each day.

Excellent view, weather, accomodations and comfort

  • 5 of 5

Don - we wanted you to know what a wonderful time we had at your hacienda! Your home is beautiful and the accommodations were excellent. Everything we needed was provided and your property managers Jose Maria and Griselda were very nice and accommodating. We only wish we would have had time to get Jose Maria to play his guitar for us. We sea-kayaked; we had a great dinner in El Cardonal (at Jose Maria's recommendation and he also made our reservation) and saw a HUGE tarantula just walking down our side of the road (after dark) – so my husband stopped and got out to take photos of it; we beach combed – which is some of the best we’ve ever had sans Costa Rica!; watched the sunrises and sunsets from your wonderful place and snorkeled at the pull-off just south of the Punta Pescardero Hotel. It was a quick, but very peaceful 3 days after spending 2 weeks in Cabo. A very nice way to end our vacation. We would recommend to anyone wanting to get away to a relaxing, intimate and safe place. We drove both the 17 k and 11 k roads to your place. The 11 k is about the same time, but is the most direct route - so slow down and be courteous and you won't have any trouble getting there via the beach view drive. Thank you for everything - you left nothing out!

Fishing trip Nov 1st-Nov5th

  • 5 of 5

This was a 5 guys fishing trip for 4 days. Primary goal was fishing.

You can fish in front of the house or use provided Kayaks. Water was warm so we also did some snorkeling. Boats picked us up by the hotel or in front of the house. We rented both Super Pangas and Super Cruisers through Jose at the same price we would have paid in Los Barriles

Jose cleaned our fish and had his wife prepare for us - yum.

I use VRBO alot both in and out of the US. And with a doubt this has to be one of the best rentals we have ever had.

Everything is as described in the property description. Jose provided us with above and beyond care and service. From picking us at the airport to arranging for the boats and quads for a day - to delivering dinner each evening prepared by his wife.

Don's communication was quick and very helpful.

House was spotless when we got there and continued to be serviced durning our entire stay.

One note - we did stop to go grocery shopping- this was not necessary as Jose can provide all of food and beverages at store prices- if you want to shop. I would suggest a visit to Costco on your way in if you have time. Otherwise send a list to Jose in advance and everything will be there.

We will definitely be back. Next time will be a family vacation with my kids and grand kids.

Baja Vacation Posada McGann

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this house was great, it is a beautiful location, and the house was very clean with all the amenities listed working as described. Jose Maria, the property manager, is an honest, very nice, and very helpful young man. We must say, however, that the house is on the far side from Los Barriles, if you have a “regular” car and not SUV or truck, the “scenic” route is a 45-50 min dirt road trek along cliffs that to my wife and sister was quite scary. Yet, going the “longer” route up and down the mountain broke it up into a 25 min “highway”/25 min dirt road, much easier on the stomach and nerves. Nevertheless, this seclusion makes Punta Pescadero a paradise for those looking to get away from it all. We are all avid fishermen and the location did not disappoint. In front of the house, surf-fishing was excellent. In calm weather, the Triggerfish (1-3 lbs) action was nonstop with a small Johnson silver spoon, landing fish almost every other cast. On our second to last day, the wind picked up and built up a 2-3 foot surf on the beach in front of the house. This made for phenomenal Huachinango (Red Snapper) fishing at sundown; they lurk in the slot between rocks and sand, right up on the beach. We caught 2 snappers in the 10-12 lb range, with many others 1-4 lb. Awesome. We were using light tackle, 2500 class Shimano reels spooled with 15 lb braid, a short (1ft) bimini and a blood knot to a 2-ft 20 lb fluorocarbon leader, 7ft med-act rods. Rapala X-Rap Saltwater Sardine and Olive Green 08 size were deadly. We let everything go, and used closed barbs on all our hooks. A short paddle away on the sea kayaks to the rocks in front of the hotel made for some awesome action as well. Grouper (~20-23 inches), Triggerfish (more than you’d like to catch, seriously), Lookdowns (right up on the rocks 1-2 lbs), and large Needlefish abound. We were using 4000 class Shimano reels with 30 lb braid, bimini to 30 lb fluorocarbon on 8-9 ft med action surf rods. We were most successful with Braid Slammer Blue/Yellow jigs, twitching them right on the bottom, closed barbs and catch and release all. We had at least two very large bites with short runs and lost fish, I imagine LARGE snapper or grouper. We went deep sea fishing with Vicente, although the bite was a little slow for most of the day. We did, however, manage to land and release a White Marlin (maybe 100 lbs), kept a small Dolphin (4-6 lbs), and hooked up with another Marlin for about 5 min before he spit the hook out.

GREAT family vacation on the Sea of Cortez!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great stay. Jose Maria and his wife were FABULOUS hosts delivering to our door anything we requested (fresh tortillas, shrimp, lobster, birthday flan, paddle boards, horses and ATVs). The guest house was very clean and comfortably accommodated our family of 6 and we loved the poolside patio/bar-b-que area with a view of the Sea of Cortez!!

Don, the owner, was timely in all communication and supplied us with any and all information we could possibly need about the house and surrounding area. Upon his approval, we brought our family pet who enjoyed the kayaking, paddle boarding as much as we did!!! I would recommend this rental to a family looking for a relaxing vacation without the touristy distractions often experienced in Cabo.
