Los Barriles Villa Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful beach estate with pool & spa-4, 5 or 6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, Sleeps 12-16

Bienvenidos! Relax and enjoy “Baja time” at Casa de Las Palmas, a private, gated beachfront estate located on the beautiful blue Sea of Cortez in Baja, Mexico. The villa is situated on over an acre of land in a quiet, convenient neighborhood that is a 5-minute trip by car or quad to the center of Los Barriles.

With 6-bedrooms and 5,500 square feet of living space, Casa de Las Palmas is one of the largest beachfront homes in Los Barriles and is perfect for large or small groups. We invite you to enjoy, relax, and unwind at our roomy family-friendly compound that sits on the edge of a white, sandy beach where you can swim, snorkel, kayak, fish, or paddleboard.

The beautifully designed heated pool and spa with a lush landscaped deck area is fully fenced, gated, and protected with child-safety locks, an added benefit for families with small children. The pool area was designed to be enjoyed year-round and is protected and out of the wind, which is especially nice during the cooler winter months!

As you enter the arched doors of the large, airy great room, your first sight is a gorgeous view of the Sea of Cortez framed by arched porticos and swaying palm trees. An extensive remodel in 2009 continued the elegant style of a sprawling single level traditional Spanish hacienda with private patios, outdoor seating areas, and large verandas with spacious dining areas. A wall of sliding glass doors on the beach side afford views of the sea from anywhere in the room.

One side of the great room has a large, well-equipped modern kitchen with a dining area that seats 12 or more. Comfortable couches, chairs, and a game table provide a separate conversation area at the other end of the room where you can enjoy major channels on the satellite TV. Equipped with a DVD player, an Xbox, and connection for computer to television, everyone is sure to be satisfied. Connect to high-speed internet anywhere throughout the property, including the pool area and outdoor verandas.

The main house has four bedrooms (perfect for a smaller group) with the two Casita bedrooms just across the courtyard. The house comfortably sleeps 12 - 16 people yet still provides privacy if desired. The bedrooms are furnished with king or queen beds and all have private baths, other than two bedrooms which share a large Jack n’ Jill bath.

At Casa de Las Palmas, our fantastic staff will satisfy your every need. Lupe, our very talented chef and caterer, can prepare your fresh catch every night, serve a traditional Mexican dinner complete with fresh hand-made tortillas, or you may choose from one of the many delicious items on her menu. Flame-grilled steaks, BBQ ribs, and grilled shrimp are always a favorite!

Max handles our transportation and is one of several English-speaking drivers who can provide you and your group round-trip airport transportation in large, air-conditioned passenger vans. You will enjoy cold refreshments while driving in comfort, which will bring you relaxed and ready to start your vacation at the Casa.

Tere and Lugarda are your housekeepers during your stay and come to the house on a daily basis to keep everything neat and tidy. Rene, our gardener and caretaker, maintains the property and grounds in an impeccable picture-perfect state while Beto keeps the pool in pristine condition.

As you sip your morning coffee on the veranda, you may catch sight of whales and their calves passing by, rays leaping out of the sea as they try to fly, or a school of porpoise traveling through. You will experience spectacular sunrises over the Sea of Cortez, as well as enjoying fabulous food and great conversation with family and friends under the starry night skies. The activity in and on the sea is non-stop and will provide daily thrills and excitement for everyone.

Before you know it, you will be in “Baja time” – a slower paced lifestyle where the days slip one into the next and daily cares become less important, where people are friendly, and life goes at its own pace. Remember, there is always mañana . . . so come enjoy, relax, and create memories of a lifetime at your home away from home . . . Casa de Las Palmas.


4-bedroom rates cannot be calculated with VRBO. Please email me for a detailed quote.

The villa with all amenities is available on a weekly basis (4-night minimum stay) or for up to a month. You will find several excellent restaurants in Los Barriles, a Saturday market with organic fruits, veggies, and fresh baked goods, a deli, grocery stores, and tourist shopping just five-minutes away in town. With all of the modern conveniences available, Los Barriles still maintains the quaint charm of a small fishing village, which you are sure to love. Your hosts live year round in town and are more than happy to help you plan everything to make your time here as perfect and stress-free as possible.

ATV’s and 2- or 4-seater side-by-sides are a great way to get around town and “live like a local.” (Ask about the discounts available to our guests.) These vehicles provide adventurous rides up the arroyos to picturesque waterfalls.

In an excellent area known for big game fishing for marlin, sailfish, yellow fin tuna, and Dorado, there are many boats and crew available for day trips. We will be glad to recommend our personal favorites.

Drivers and vans are also available for day trips, shopping, or other excursions. A day trip to Cabo Pulmo, a national marine park with one of the most beautiful reefs, is a great place for a picnic lunch where you can swim and snorkel with the sea lions and the many diverse species that inhabit the reef.

During the months of December through late February/early March, kiteboarding and wind surfing are the sports “du jour” due to the on-shore north winds. A short walk south from the house will take you to ExotiKite Kiteboarding School whose friendly, experienced instructors are all IKO trained and certified. All gear and equipment can be rented through them and your personal instructor will have you up and riding the wind and waves in no time.

Why Mary Kufeldt-Antle chose Los Barriles

We love the area, the weather, and the warmth and friendliness of the people here. We are fortunate to have found such a lovely property and are happy to share it with you and your family!

What makes this villa unique

Our home is 'front row' - on the beach! With all of the activities that come with that - dolphins leaping, whales breaching, fish jumping, gorgeous sunrises, privacy, space, private heated pool with spa, and all the tranquility that comes with staying at your own private retreat . . . on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mary,

We had a wonderful time staying at your house. The house, the veranda, the grounds, the pool, the electronic stuff were all first class. All the people that work with you were great. Kathy, Mac, Ian, Max, Lupe and Lucia, and the house keepers and gardeners were all extremely helpful. The food was fabulous. Lupe and Lucia brought their children by to meet us all on the last evening of the Yoga retreat. Several of us arranged a trip to Santiago with Max. He took us to the Zoo, the church and the waterfall, and we had lunch at the hotel int the garden. Kaaren took a two hour paddle board lesson with Peter Boot, one of your neighbors who lives several doors away down the beach. I fly fished up and down the beach. Caught some needle fish and and one rooster fish. Another day we went on a snorkeling trip up past Punta Pescadero to the "narco hotel" area and we had lunch at the hotel at Bahia de los Suenos. A lot of the hotel's electric and water was destroyed by the hurricane, but they were still able to feed us.

We are sending a link to flicker, where there is a slide show of photos that were taken by one of our class mates at the Yoga retreat.

We appreciate how hard you work to make this all happen. And we hope at some time in the future to come back to Los Barriles again.

A Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours,

Kaaren and Joe

Casa de Las Palmas - A Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I’ve had this review on my To-Do list for some time and decided no more delay! We were so lucky to have found Casa de Las Palmas, a wonderful vacation estate! It was so much more than we could have ever hoped for and our group of 16 adults had a magical time there. No one wanted to leave when the time came. While the home does have a very large well equipped kitchen that would have been fun to play in, we opted for a vacation for everyone. At her suggestion, we had made arrangements with Mary to have Lupe do the cooking and stock the kitchen and bar for us prior to our arrival. We didn't have to plan menus or anything - it was all taken care of for us. Every day was like a photo shoot from Bon Appetite and everyone was blown away by the quality and care put into each meal. We all loved Lupe and gave her more than one standing ovation. When I was taking a walk in town one day, some other tourists asked what restaurants we liked. I had to admit that we hadn't considered going out because we knew we had the best seats in town. The main living area has a huge ocean front veranda that was used for our meals. Dining by candlelight, listening to the ocean waves crashing....loved it.

The main areas of the house are large and open allowing for an unobstructed view of the pristine white sand beach. The home and grounds are incredible! They are beautiful and have been updated in such a thoughtful and beautiful manner that even with a huge group, you can still find solitude on one of the many verandas if you like. There are also large gathering areas for times when you want to be social.

Each of the bedrooms was obviously professionally decorated and gave the feeling of being in a hacienda, but one with very comfortable beds and decadent linens. The bathrooms are all tiled in lovely Talavera tile and stocked with an abundance of fluffy towels.

The pool is an oasis tucked in among the grounds and was a favorite lounging place for the group. It's hard to find a reason for leaving, but we did have fun riding ATV's on the beach and into town. It's one of those perfect places with enough to do for the active members of the group and areas for relaxing and winding down as well. Everything is so well thought out. If you needed or wanted it, it was there for you.

We can't thank Mary enough for making our trip such a huge success.

Perfect for large groups and/or families

  • 5 of 5

Mary is just the most incredible hostess! We use her home at least four or five times a year for our business. We usually bring between 6-10 clients with us and everyone is accommodated in comfort. The layout of the home provides for different groups to be in different areas which is an even bigger benefit! The combination of being on the water and having a pool/spa is such a delight! In the cooler months - the pool and spa work out perfectly!

We will always use Mary's home - it's just magnificent!!

Family and Friends Super Special Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. It is everything and more then advertised. Mary and her help go above and beyond to be helpful! The house and property are very clean and well maintained. I have stayed in other rentals and this one is the BEST! Everything is there for a great time. Her welcome dinner was so outstanding, my family is still talking about that meal. We can't wait to go back!

Absolutely the Best - Each and Every Time

  • 5 of 5

I've vacationed at Casa de Las Palmas for years with family and friends. The owner, Mary, is very accommodating and takes care of the little details that many others forget. We have children and adults of all ages stay with us and the location couldn't be better. For those who want to relax, you have a gorgeous pool and the white sand beaches directly out the front door. For those of us that want to get on our ATVs and play around, it's close to the arroyos. The kids love the pool and each of the bedrooms are comfortable and well appointed. The house is great for large groups, reunions, family gatherings and getaways. You won't be disappointed!

Amazing Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed at Casa de Las Palmas for a week with five other friends. This place is amazing! We were greeted by our host Mary who is so friendly and accommodating. She was very responsive and checked in regularily to make sure everything was okay. She even had some fresh seafood waiting for us as we requested as we know a local fish guy stops by every Tuesday. The house is located directly on the beach with wonderful ocean views. All of the bedrooms are large and easily accommodated our group. The house has all the amenities of home: large living room with satelitte TV, great kitchen to cook in, jacuzzi out back. The house is also conveniently located if you want to take a day trip into La Paz or Cabo. They even have maid service and cooks that can prepare meals. I've stayed all over the world and I can safely say that this is one of the best spots I have encountered. We will definitely be back!!!!!

Wonderful multi-generational vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Like others who have reviewed Casa de Las Palmas, we found this to be a wonderful place for families of all generations. My wife and I organized a vacation that included our three married children and their six children, ages 1 to 16. We recommend including Lupi and her helper, Cuchi as cooks for breakfast and dinner. With warmth and joy, they prepared wonderful Mexican dishes. Mary, the owner, was on-site and very gracious in responding to all our needs. We were able to rent two paddle boards from her that the family enjoyed using all week. Of course, the beach is just a few steps away to enjoy. We would recommend bringing water shoes because there are small rocks to walk over near the shoreline at low tide conditions. The water is very safe for children and that was a deciding factor for us choosing Sea of Cortez over Pacific side. Ask Mary about taking a boat to a wonderful snorkeling location near El Cardonal.
