CASA ALVARADO - BEACHFRONT VILLA FOR FAMILIES AND BIG GROUPS!

Los Barriles House Rental Photos and Description

8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, sleeps 2-16

If you’re looking for a beautiful villa in a five-star location, if you want a secluded getaway where you can wake to a glorious sunrise, relax on a beach that’s virtually your own and count shooting stars at the end of another perfect day, we have just the spot.

Casa Alvarado is nestled in a cove on the Sea of Cortez in the small resort community of Punta Pescadero, a 30-minute drive from Los Barriles.

The main house sleeps up to 12 people in four spacious bedrooms: two on the entry level and two down below with private entrances. On each level, one bedroom has a king bed and bath; the other has two double beds and bath.

Casa Alvarado also has two stand-alone casitas. Each one has a bath and four double beds, two on the entry level and two in the loft. This added accommodation makes our property ideal for reunions, corporate retreats or special family occasions.

From the main house, walk out to the patio for our million dollar view. Descend 20 steps to reach the pool, chaise lounges and outdoor eating area. Descend 30 more and your toes are in the sand.

You’ll find everything you need in our well-appointed kitchen which has a large island with bar stool seating. And the indoor communal area feels even bigger thanks to our year-round outdoor living space. Being on the cove means that Casa Alvarado is protected from the north winds. So even in winter, it’s warm enough to sunbathe by the pool, read a book on the patio, swim in the ocean or enjoy margaritas at sunset.

Other activities include: ping-pong, snorkeling, shelling, scuba, kayaking and fishing. A three-minute walk to Punta Pescadero Paradise Hotel adds horseshoes, tennis, basketball, a bar with wide-screen TV and restaurant meals.

Finally, to make your vacation even more enjoyable, we provide free daily housekeeping and property management. We will also help you arrange transportation, fishing excursions, day trips, cooking classes, catering, shopping, an authentic Mexican fiesta or ATV and scuba gear rental.

Find out more about Casa Alvarado! We’re excited to share our home with you and we’re committed to making your vacation a happy one.

To us, vacationing in Punta Pescadero means leaving our hectic lives behind and taking time to appreciate the simple pleasures -- seeing rays leap from the ocean in the morning light; enjoying an ice-cold Pacifico beer and homemade tortilla chips at the bar of Punta Pescadero Paradise Hotel; kayaking or snorkeling in the clear, calm water of the cove; taking the family to taco nights in nearby El Cardonal; and watching the full moon rise out of the ocean. It also means spending time with the people who matter most in our lives. Casa Alvarado has so much sleeping space, we hope we can accommodate the people who matter most in yours, whether they be family, fishing buddies or old friends.

BAJA BLISS WITH ADVENTURES AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our week long stay at Casa Alvarado and all I can say is it was the best vacation we have ever had. We were a group of 9 late 20/ early 30s. The casa is on the perfect cove for snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding. Not a morning went by where we didn't wake up with the sun and head out on the water. It's the perfect house for whale watching(binoculars included). At one point my husband and I spotted a whale while on the kayak. It was a mother and baby humpback and they swam under us checking us out. One of the most exhilarating experiences I've had!
Each room in the main house is large and has a great bathroom stocked with all of the bathroom amenities you could want. The kitchen is beautiful and the appliances seem brand new. We spent a lot of time cooking and making yummy cocktails and couldn't have asked for a better kitchen.
Carlos is so wonderful and helped us with everything we wanted. He organized fishing for us with Roberto. Roberto picked us up right in front of the house. We asked Roberto about spear fishing and he set us up with his son Juan Angel who took the guys out spear fishing at night for lobster. This kid is very skilled. He caught 2 lobster and 2 fish in no time at all. We purchased them from him and they were delicious. Couldn't have a fresher meal anywhere! We also rented ATVs(Carlos' connection) and the guys had a blast all day exploring the beaches and desert.
You don't have to be as adventurous to enjoy this beautiful home. The pool is incredible and we spent a lot of time lounging. Some of our best times were playing volleyball in the pool.
We also had a birthday in our group and Susan sent us in the right direction to set up a birthday party. Griselda's mexican food was amazing. We also had the mariachis and had so much fun dancing and singing along. Oh, and that cake is absolutely amazing!
For groceries we found Chapitos in Los Barriles to have everything we needed. The road from Los Barriles to Punta Pescadero is pretty nerve racking the first time but our small cars never had any problems. I could see how having a larger vehicle would make you feel more secure, but its not necessary.
Carlos and Griselda came everyday (except for Sunday, of course)and did everything they could to accommodate us. We were more than happy to leave them both a tip for their generous help and services. I could go on and on. We highly recommend the Casa to true Baja lovers looking for both adventure and R&R!

PERFECT WEDDING..PERFECT HONEYMOON. A SLICE OF HEAVEN! YOU WILL NEVER WANT TO LEAVE..

  • 5 of 5
Gosh, where to start. We had the good fortune of running across this listing many months ago when searching for the spot to say our 'I-do's'. The moment we started corresponding with one of the owners, Susan, it was an instant match made in heaven. Susan, and the rest of the Casa Alvarado family, are so warm and helpful. I think we have made friends for life in this experience, and can not express enough our gratitude for their generosity and sincere investment in our big day. People flew from Australia and all parts of the United States. Susan and her family made contact with our travelers prior to their arrival, advising them on how best to travel and sent us so much information that made the planning and coordination virtually seamless. The lovely family that manages the property had everything set up for us upon our arrival, we felt so welcome and could not have anticipated the beauty and jaw dropping location of this one of a kind property. The wedding went off without one issue, from the food, which was supplied by Carlos and his family, to the music, to the cake, gorgeous flowers, tables and chairs, beautiful settings and flatware, all provided by the Punta Pescadero Paradise hotel just down the beach. It was perfection. Such amazing energy at this house, I don't think there was one minute that wasn't being thoroughly enjoyed by all 23 people in attendance that day. It was truly the most beautiful wedding I have ever been to..and it was our wedding.

Every day we enjoyed the morning sunrise and set right on the patio overlooking the Sea of Cortez, the view is indescribable. You truly have to see it and feel it in person to understand how magical it is. Dolphins, whales, pelicans and lots of other wildlife were a daily sighting. We snorkeled in the crystal clear water, paddle boarded, swam and kayaked as much as we could fit in. There was literally never a moment someone wasn't taking advantage of the kayaks and paddle board. We all walked the beautiful beach everyday, finding treasures and enjoying the coastline and views.

The hotel, specifically Sandra and Isabelle, were also so instrumental in making the event and the week work as seamlessly as it did. Some of our family stayed at the hotel, and they raved about it's rooms and how quiet and comfortable it was. A wonderful group or people. We also rented quads directly from the hotel for two days, this was a big hit with everyone.

Truly a slice of heaven on earth!

AMAZING OCEANFRONT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our large party of 16 (ages 11 to 73) vacationed at Casa Alvarado for a week and had an amazing time!
The house itself is beautiful and well laid out. The view when we walked in the front door blew us away! Everyone had their own private space, but there were so many places for us to gather and enjoy our time together also - poolside, the upper deck, the kitchen and dining area, the fire pit, the beach. The house was very clean when we got there and the cleaning crew came in regularly to clean during our stay.
We enjoyed so many activities during our stay that it is hard to know where to start. Throughout the week we regularly saw whales spouting and manta rays jumping out of the water. The snorkeling right in front of the house was amazing! We went out everyday, exploring new areas and coming back excited about our discoveries. The kayaks were enjoyed by everyone as was the paddleboard. Even the oldest members of the group paddleboarded and they loved it! Carlos (the caretaker) arranged for 2 fishing boats to take us out one morning. They picked us up right on the beach in front of the house and we came in back with six dorados! Enough fish to feed all of us for two dinners! On two occasions Carlos arranged for horses to be brought to the beach and we enjoyed a few hours of riding. Everyone had fun with the ping pong table and we took advantage of the many board games available during the quieter times. Evenings at the fire pit, roasting marshmallows will be a great memory for the kids. I can't recall ever being on a vacation where we experienced so much without having to leave the property.
That, in my opinion, the greatest asset of Casa Alvarado.
We did venture down to the hotel bar on a few occasions and Isabelle makes a great margarita! We also made a couple of trips into Los Barriles for groceries, souvenir shopping and Caleb's cinnamon rolls.
We cannot say enough about the excellent service provided to us by both Susan and Carlos. Susan checked in regularly prior to our trip and gave us great advice and directions. Carlos was there for us whenever we needed anything. He arranged outings for us, provided fire wood, and made sure that we had everything we needed for a carefree vacation. We all looked forward to his daily check ins.
If you are looking for a great vacation spot for where you can get away from it all and still experience a lot, this is your place!

A WONDERFUL VACATION RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 4 families (10 adults and 8 children) had an amazing week at Casa Alvarado, and we will be returning again! This home is perfect for a getaway with family and friends on the beautiful Sea of Cortez. We felt like we had our own private beach during our stay. We could not have been happier with services provided by the property manager, and having fresh meals catered to us was a treat! Highlights of our trip included evening campfires, swimming and kayaking in the ocean, watching dolphins from the shore, fishing for marlin, and of course just relaxing in the pool.

...OUR OWN PRIVATE "PARADISE"

...Our own private "paradise"
  • 5 of 5
I don't know where to begin, other than describe our family vacation as perfect. The views on the way to the house are breathtaking, whether on the paved road or driving the beach road. Once we arrived at the house we didn't want to leave. Upon entering the house, you immediately see the views of the Sea of Cortez through the sliding glass doors. We were immediately drawn onto the back patio, a spot we spent many hours....two beautiful leather rockers sat there inviting us to sit down. From these chairs we were able to see the beautiful sunrises, watch the fishing boats, watch the kids walk on the beach or in the pool...or simply enjoy the view while sipping a mango margarita with the rim dipped in tajin. The house was clean & well maintained, fully equipped with everything we needed, a kitchen ready for us to cook in, washer/dryer, board games, snorkel gear, pool toys, kayaks, beach towels, even a 5 gallon jug of water in a ceramic dispenser. Carlos checked in on us everyday....he was there to answer our questions...provided us with helpful tips/suggestions, arranged to have Griselda cook us dinner one evening, made arrangements for fishing trips. He is an asset to Casa Alvarado and takes great pride in the house and making sure the guests are happy. His daughter, Griselda, was also a pleasure...she came by to clean, change the linens/make the beds as we needed. The dinner she prepared for us was delicious, in-expensive, there was more than enough & we had left overs...be sure to order the chocolate flan. She also has a small restaurant, El Cardoncito, located about 25 minutes away in Cardonal, we had dinner there one evening, the food there was also delicious. We drove to Los Barilles a few times to get groceries at Chapitos, you will find what you need there. Theres a man across the street selling bags of oranges, with the juicer at the house...the fresh oj every morning was refreshing. Theres also a lady selling fish, shrimp, scallops & clams...not to be missed. Everything about this trip was perfect....the owners were a pleasure to deal with from our first inquiry answering all our questions. The pictures were a true reflection of what Casa Alvarado looked like. We learned to relax at Casa Alvarado, enjoying the simple things life has to offer, we have enough memories to last until we return.

THE PERFECT VACATION DESTINATION

  • 5 of 5
I don't know where to begin! My family spent 8 nights and 9 fabulous days at Cas Alvarado and we are already planning our next trip to this beachfront paradise. The beautiful home, the roomy casitas, the huge pool with beautiful lighting for night-time and the poolhouse stuffed full of kayacks, float toys, snorkel gear, 2 man boat, and all sorts of pool toys and games, the separate laundry house, the pingtong table, the cozy firepit, the beautiful courtyard...This awesome beachfront home overlooks the most beautiful beach we have ever seen. It is very private even with other 'homes' up and down the beach. The hotel, a ten minute walk up the beach, offers fine dining and there is a casual patio bar next door to the hotel. We spent many happy-hours there. There was always music playing and the college-aged kids in our group loved it. The home was decked out with a beautiful gourmet kitchen with awesome 6 burner gas range, a huge fridge and another refridgerator in the laundry house, bottled water dispenser and a supercharged ice maker.(a very nice amenity I might add). The bedrooms are large and every bedroom has a private bath and private entrance. The home opens up to the most beautiful patio with lots of seating and rocking chairs where we watched every sunrise and sunset. Words cannot describe the ocean view from that patio! It was breathtaking! And the grounds were kept immaculate by the sweetest gentleman-Carlos. He checked in on us every day, supplied us with firewood for the firepit, all the bottled water we needed, gave us a daily fishing report, checked to see if we needed anything. One day we asked if we could buy ice at the hotel... He showed up with 2 bags of ice and an extra cooler. He was never intrusive, always kind and helpful. We fell in love with Carlos! The property owners were very helpful in the planning stages as we arranged for airport transfers, and they had suggestions for grocery stores and fishing guides. It all came together perfectly! We had a wonderful time at Casa Alvarado. The home is supplied with everything from beachtowels to a first aid kit.. They thought of everything! The weather was perfect, the fishing was awesome and our stay could not have been nicer! Our nicest family vacation ever.
