PRIVATE GATED BEACHFRONT ESTATE - A BAJA BEACH VACATION!

Los Barriles Villa Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful home on the beach with pool & spa -6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

Bienvenidos! Relax and enjoy “Baja time” at Casa de Las Palmas, a beautiful beachfront home located on the white sandy beach on the Sea of Cortez in Baja California. Constructed in the traditional Mexican hacienda style, the home has large verandas and outdoor living areas where you can experience spectacular sunrises over the Sea of Cortez, as well as enjoy the calm tranquility and starry skies of the evening.

The main living area is large and airy with a spacious, well-equipped kitchen on one end and the main sitting / living room at the other. You will enjoy beautiful views with all the activity on the Sea of Cortez through the six sliding glass doors that flank the beach side of the house. The living area also has a full bath, along with laundry facilities, and access to the first bedroom. Situated on over a gated acre of land, parking for several cars, an RV, or boat is available in the courtyard or on street next to the house.

Bedroom 1 with a queen bed utilizes the bath in the main house. This bedroom also has a private entrance through sliding doors off the front veranda. The 3-bedroom wing of the house has its own entrance from the front veranda. In addition, each of the bedrooms has a separate entrance to private patios and verandas. Bedrooms 2 has a queen bed, private bath, and can also accommodate a twin bed in the room on request. Bedroom 3 (also with a queen bed) can accommodate an extra twin bed and shares a full large bath with the fourth bedroom. Bedroom 4 is furnished with a king bed and an extra twin bed. The king bed can be converted to twin beds.

Directly across from the front veranda adjoining the courtyard are the two casita bedrooms, Bedroom 5 and 6. These newly remodeled rooms have a lockable connecting door between them, perfect for couples with children or older teens traveling with the larger group. Bedrooms 5 and 6 both have a king bed, which can be converted to twin beds if needed. The adjoining bath for the Bedroom 6 has also been designed to be wheelchair accessible. Each bedroom has separate patio areas and separate entrances.

What’s your idea of the perfect vacation? As you sit sipping your morning coffee on the veranda, you may catch sight of whales and their calves passing through, bat rays leaping out of the sea as they try to fly, or a school of porpoise traveling through. This area has also become “the place to be” for kite boarding/surfing and a short walk north from the house will take you to ExotiKite, where all gear and equipment is provided by certified instructors who will teach you the fine art of kite-boarding.

Or, you can rent ATV’s and take an adventurous ride through the arroyos and hike to picturesque waterfalls. Maybe you’d rather take a picnic lunch and snorkel and/or scuba dive at Cabo Pulma, a national marine park with one of the most beautiful reefs in the world, where you can swim with the sea lions and the many diverse species that inhabit the reef. Fishing for marlin, sailfish, yellow fin tuna, and Dorado is always in season, with many boats and crew available for day trips. We will be glad to recommend several from which to choose. On the other hand, if you'd rather be a real captain of the seas, there are 2 hard-sided sit-on-top tandem ocean kayaks available for you and your first mate's use.

Arrangements for horseback riding, a day trip to the quaint Mexican village of Santiago with shopping and dining, a day trip to Cabo San Lucas, or a day trip to the artsy community of Todos Santos can all be arranged. If relaxation is what you have in mind, leisurely walks on the beach, unwinding in one of the many outdoor hammocks at the house, or just taking it easy are all yours for the asking. There are many different restaurants in town, or if you prefer to dine in, a wonderful meal can be catered and arranged. Light housekeeping is provided to help with the daily necessities and keep you in a stress-free environment. We will help you plan and arrange everything to make your time here as perfect and pleasurable as possible.

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 enjoy the moment!

PLEASE NOTE: This is a PRIVATE HOME, not a hotel. As such, rates are customized and based on each unique inquiry, not a 'one size fits all' algorithm using 'quotable rates.' The home is large, accommodates different numbers and groups of people, and rates are adjusted accordingly. Unfortunately, it is no longer even possible to update our rates below due to forced changes by the administration. It is our sincere desire to avoid errors within the algorithm and provide a personalized quote for your stay. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. We look forward to welcoming you to Casa de Las Palmas!

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. http://www.flickr.com/photos/10323204@N02/sets/72157631940204152/show/



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

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.

A Perfect vacation in Mexico

  • 5 of 5
We were a family of 10 ,mostly young adults and parents . Max the driver picked us up at the airport and from that moment we felt very welcomed .
Mary the owner greeted us when we arrived at her beautiful home we enjoyed all the flowers thru out , and all around the pool area. We enjoyed a fantastic dinner by Lupe and could not have asked for a better first day arriving after a long flight from Illinois. Every one we met was extremly nice to us , we do not speak alot of Spanish and they were just so cordial .
We enjoyed the Quads -that was our main transportation other than Max taking us to Cabo for the day. The kayaks were used often in the morning to go out in the ocean. I can not say enough from beginning to the end of our trip this is a place we will remember always . Our kids had a great time on the beach, pool, shopping and enjoying the beautiful weather . Every day sunny and just perfect.
Thanks again for everyone we met and for putting up with my family .. We hope to come again .

A birthday to forever remember...

  • 5 of 5
A group of 6 couples spent a beautiful week in Los Barrilas and stayed at Casa de Las Palmas April 2014 to celebrate a very special birthday. I must say this property exceeded ALL of our expectations! The beautiful property is expansive and very well appointed. Plenty of room to congregate together but also a large enough property to get away and relax. From early morning to late at night, the view from the veranda was constantly evolving with whales & dolphins, kite boards, boats and happy people strolling on the beach. The pool and hot tub was very private and comfortable.

The owner arranged airport transportation and provided tips to navigating at the airport. A fishing trip and live music several nights was also arranged. For an even more relaxing and carefree stay, do take advantage of the private Chef. She and her assistant made us incredible meals both local cuisine and that of California cuisine. As there were several “foodies” in the group, we arranged to have the Chef conduct a cooking class. Many memorable local dishes were demonstrated.

You should put this on your list of places to visit. We can’t wait to go back.

Unbelievable view, gorgeous house, fantastic vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5
Several girlfriends and I get together once a year for a Mexico getaway. We usually try to find a new spot each year and Casa de Las Palmas did not disappoint! From the moment we arrived we felt right at home. Mary, the owner greeted us at the door and walked us through a tour of the casa and casita while Lupe prepared our welcome dinner and let us get settled in. Mac, our driver took care of all our baggage and even offered to shuttle us around town for the remainder of our stay, which we gladly took him up on. He was available to us whenever we needed him and as a Los Barriles native, made sure we were well taken care of wherever we went. The house itself is comfortable, spacious, VERY clean and the pool and grounds are gorgeous. But more than all that, the kindness of Mary, Lupe and Mac really pushed this trip over the top for us. We would gladly recommend this amazing spot to anyone looking for their next home away from home in Mexico!

Beautiful place to stay. An oasis away from the big tourist cities but with all the amenities you could want. Excellent chef. All of the locals were friendly and helpful. Something for everyone at any age. We plan to return. This is the best of Mexico,with old world flair updated with all modern touches.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Casa De Las Palmas by far exceeded my expectations. I planned a getaway for 14 women and we could not have been more pleased with how perfect everything turned out! First off, working with the owner Mary was a pleasure. She was extremely helpful and went above and beyond to help in the planning. In fact, I may not have been able to pull it off without her! She provided detailed and thorough information on activities, arranged transportation from the airport, and provided us with a wonderful cook amongst other things. All of the personnel she hired for us were polite, friendly and went beyond as well. Mary was even there to greet us upon arrival and gave us a tour of the house. The house was clean, very well maintained and well appointed. For example, there were 6 sets of different colored towels in the shared bathroom which was nice as a large group. Also plenty of beach towels, beach mats, sun hats, snorkeling gear and the list goes on.
If you are traveling with a family or big group, I also highly recommend Lupe, the cook. She is amazing and worth every penny. Delicious food and she and her assistant prepped, cooked, cleaned and handled all our requests with a smile. We had some who were vegetarians and some with gluten allergies and she accommodated each of us. She also was able to do our food shopping before our arrival, which again Mary arranged. How nice to just show up to a kitchen stocked with food, beverages and libations and slip right into vacation! And to not have to do dishes or clean up after a meal was a treat in itself. With 14 women most of whom were mothers, this was just a perfect example of how a vacation should be.
We also really enjoyed the quaint town of Los Barriles. If you want to get away from the mega resorts of Cabo and experience a more slow paced atmosphere, this is the place to go. As for activities, we rented ATV's to explore the surrounding areas and went snorkeling at Punta Pescadero which was beautiful. Might I mention that the boat even picked us up on the shore by the house to take us snorkeling. We enjoyed snorkeling off the beach at the house as well and saw many colorful fish. And of course being on the Sea of Cortez, watching the dolphins swim by in the morning while sipping your coffee on the patio was pretty spectacular too.
Otherwise just spending time at the house, lazing in one of the hammocks or swimming in the sparkling pool was pure relaxation. We are already looking forward to our next stay!
