Los Barriles House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
Situated on a half-acre lot among a grove of white-barked trees for which the neighborhood is named, Casa de Escape is a cozy, newly built (completed March, 2011), two bedroom casa minutes walk from the most popular windsurfing beach on East Cape. Located on a dead end road in the exclusive and quiet upscale neigborhood of Palo Blanco above North Beach a mile north of Los Barriles, just far enough off the beach for privacy yet with a view of the ocean from the rooftop veranda. The casa is surrounded by mountains which tame the winter winds on the beach to a gentle, cooling breeze. All utilities are underground, ensuring a pristine viewing environment.
Wake each morning to the sound of birds singing outside your windows, watch the sunrise from your rooftop veranda over the Sea of Cortez with a cup of coffee prepared in your fully equipped kitchen. During the day there are countless activities nearby, from world class fishing to scuba and exploring the arroyos (ask me about the waterfalls!) on quads, available for rent in town. Or just hang at the fully air conditioned casa for a quiet and relaxing day of sunbathing and reading your favorite book. For dinner, grill the day's catch on the gas grill or cook on the gas stove or oven and dine on the ramada covered deck off the kitchen, watching the sun set over the mountains to the west. Or run into town ('Just like Cabo was 30 years ago!') for dinner at one of the many great eateries. I have yet to have a bad meal in Los Barriles!
Floors are all tile, ceilings are ten feet high, with both air conditioning and celing fans throughout. The master bedroom is spacious, is equipped with a queen bed, armoire and nightstands, has many windows and its own sliding glass door to the front yard. The guest bedroom is a bit smaller, but has plenty of room for the double bed, nightstand, corner hutch and armoire, with two large windows looking out over the back yard. Both bedrooms and the living area have private doors to the bath, where you'll find a beautiful shower and a marble sink and counter, in addition to the stacked washer/dryer unit in it's own alcove. The kitchen is fully equipped, right down to the toaster, and boasts beautiful granite countertops and Mexican Pine cabinets. All utensils are provided, including a chef-quality cutlery set.
In the living area you'll find a futon that will fit two, provided you all are very comfortable with each other. Also, satellite TV is provided, along with an entertainment center including a dvd and CD player, an X-Box and a PlayStation and a library of CDs and dvds. Wifi is provided so you can keep in touch with work or family.
So, if you're looking for peace and quiet for a romantic getaway, or a place with privacy not far from the windsurfing or fishing in one of the most beautiful spots in Baja, try Casa de Escape:Clean, comfortable, cozy and private.
'The stars, like dust!' Try counting shooting stars from the rooftop veranda at night. Beautiful!

Self employed in Portland, Oregon for most of my life, I have been vacationing in all parts of the world for decades, but always liked Mexico because of the climate and the friendliness of the people. I intend to relocate to the casa when my daughter graduates from USF in a couple of years. I hope you'll find the house welcoming and comfortable and you enjoy your stay.
Bob purchased this house in 2010
Why Bob chose Los Barriles
Los Barriles is a relatively short flight from my home in Portland, the town is quiet and friendly, but offers many distractions in the off chance you get bored. I looked for a couple of years in Puerto Vallarta and surrounding areas as I have friends there, but finally decided that PV has become too crowded. I considered the Yucatan, but that's too far from Portland and has grown too much over the last 20 years as well. I had never been to Baja until a friend of mine who has a home there invited me down early in 2010, and that's all it took. I immediately fell in love with the small community and its friendly, welcoming people. We broke ground in November of 2010, finishing by March 1st of 2011.
What makes this house unique
I use the property for relaxation and SUN, something we get far too little of in the Pacific NW! I intend to retire here for at least 8 months out of the year within five years. It's so quiet and peaceful, but there's always something to do. The beach is so close, with the town and its amenities, including a first class medical clinic just a five minute drive away. Privacy and quiet is important to me, something the casa offers in spades, being just far enough off the beach to offer solitude, but close enough to both the beach and town that for those times I want to socialize I have but a short walk or even shorter drive. And the night life of Cabo is just 45 minutes down the road for those times I want to socialize a bit more than what is offered in Los Barriles.
