About Mark Rayor

We checked out of the fast lane and moved to Buena Vista from Los Angeles 23 years ago and have never looked back. This place is as close to heaven as it gets.

Mark Rayor purchased this house in 2000

Why Mark Rayor chose Los Barriles

Wake up every morning to the gentle sound of waves lapping on the beach and a spectacular sunrise over the Sea of Cortez. This is one of the most prolific bodies of water on our planet. It offers the worlds best deep sea fishing and also hosts Cabo Pulmo Marine Park with the only living coral reef on the West Coast of North America.

What makes this house unique

This is one of the few places left in the world that is still unspoiled. Winter and spring from the front deck watch calving humpback whales breach and teach their young. In the summer sea turtle nest on the beach right in front of our home. Beach combing is always outstanding and there is a snorkeling reef right out front loaded with hoards of colorful tropical fish.

Holiday Stay at Casa Front Row

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two daughters decided to stay at Casa Front Row for the holidays, never having been to Los Barriles or Casa Front Row, we were all a bit anxious about our vacation. Our anxiety immediately disapated on walking through the front doors of Casa Front Row and seeing the beautiful accomodatioons with a direct view of the Sea of Cortez. Mark, our host immediately got us situated and was a great guide/resource for the balance of our stay both for the accomodations and things to do within the area.

In addition to a wonderfull house right on the beach with beautiful views, Mark also provides, kayaks, snorkeling gear, towels and beach chairs for your use. My family and I can't say enough about Mark and Casa Front Row. We also felt very safe and secure in the nearby town of Los Barriles, which was a short five minute drive from our house. Good food, cheap prices and very friendly, all within minutes of our house

Thanks again Mark for having us, we would highly reccommend a stay at Casa Front Row. We hope to see you again soon

Casa Front Row

  • 5 of 5

Casa Front Row is a spectacular home. The posted pictures do not quite capture or convey its spaciousness, its high ceilings, the beachfront views or the beach itself. The beach is much grander and very wide. The views from the deck span one end of the beach, Hotel Las Palmas, to the other, Spa Buena Vista. Ceiling fans keep the air flowing even on the calmest days. The master bathroom is enormous. Most rooms have unobstructed ocean views.

We have rented many homes over the years and this one was at the top of the list. It is well appointed. The kitchen has every conceivable appliance that you would want, and all are in working order. Mark and Jennifer are responsive when you desire assistance and respectful of your privacy when you don't. Before we arrived we bombarded Mark with questions about the house and the surrounding town. He promptly, patiently and thoroughly answered every one. He and Jennifer continued to help us as needed after we arrived. We were also befriended by their two lovely dogs, Gracie and Pinchy.

If the Cabo spring break scene is not your thing, you should try a stay at Casa Front Row. Los Barriles is a quieter beach town with a large and very close expat community. We met and befriended several of them during the course of our stay. Be sure take a short walk up the beach to visit Tony for an evening cocktail at Rancho Buena Vista resort. His margaritas are the best.

If you like to fish, Los Barriles is the place. Mark is a renowned charter boat captain and his crews know what they are doing. He has a fishing blog which will keep you posted on the local bite. He has a reputation for honesty which, considering his day job, is not too shabby.

Casa Front Row was exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a marvelous week in Casa Front Row, and it was everything we could have hoped for and more, a perfect vacation spot for our first trip to Baja. The house is sparkling clean, spacious and classy, beautifully furnished, private, quiet, perfectly maintained, and surrounded by palm trees to frame the unforgettable view. It was thoughtfully stocked with everything we needed including lots of beach towels, a hairdryer, and a washer and dryer. The lovely patio overlooks the Sea of Cortez and we spent hours there reading, chatting, and watching the kitesurfers and the manta rays both jumping for joy. We were lulled to sleep every night by the sound of the waves. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, and the owners helpful and gracious. Their two mellow and friendly dogs were welcome visitors. Safety was never a concern anywhere we went on the East Cape. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, a pristine uncrowded beach steps away, kayaks to paddle, a small snorkeling reef right outside our door well stocked w colorful fish, miles of trails for hiking and biking the hills just behind the house, and close proximity to Los Barilles for basic supplies. We took a daytrip to Santiago and swam in the pool under the waterfall one day, took a boat trip to Bahia de Los Suenos another day, and found the snorkeling beach at Punta Pescadero on our last day. The air temps were perfect, the sea was a bit chilly and I was glad I packed a wetsuit, but the younger folks were unfazed. Our two dedicated fishermen didnt catch a thing on the shore, the double kayak or on the fishing boat but some great views of the mantas bellyflopping, but had no complaints. Mostly we cooked in, but had a delicious dinner at Germans Restaurant in Los Barilles on our last night. We all loved every minute of the trip and cant wait to return.

Worth repeating!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled down as a family with teens and had a blast! Casa Front Row is a perfect getaway. Large, comfortable, loaded with amenities and on a beautiful, quiet stretch of Buenavista beach. Our host as well as the owners were impeccable and extremely deft at solving a potentially uncomfortable issue that arose upon our arrival that was completely out of their control and had nothing to do with their beautiful house.

I've traveled to these parts for the last 25 years and this last trip stands out as one of the best due to our accommodations, host, their exceptional boat ( JenWren Iii ) and the hard fishing, always trying to please crew of Chuy and Diego. The fishing was completely off the hook with multiple billfish released, massive amounts of Tuna and Dorado boated. It'll be a while before our smiles disappear and it'll surely be one of those trips that become legendary as time passes.

I can't really say enough about the whole package. It's really worth every penny and more. We look forward to returning to visit our new friends and enjoy more of what the East Cape and its special blend of fun and adventure have to offer! Viva Mark, Jen, Chuy y Diego! Gracias por todo and making this last trip such a memorable one.

Great Sea of Cortez Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay with our Son and family. This house is set up beautifully for families or 3 couples. It has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths with full kitchen. The house sits right on the beach and the Sea of Cortez is right at your fingertips for snorkeling, paddle boarding, kyaking or fishing. Home is up-to-date, clean and has all modern ammenities. It is a short drive (about a mile) to Los Barilles where there is shopping and good restaurants. We would highly recommend this rental.

Casa Front Row is Great for Families!

  • 5 of 5

We could not of been happier with our stay at Casa Front Row. From the minute we walked in we were more than impressed with the location, the furnishings and the friendliness of the hosts and their great dogs! We were two families travelling with four adults and three boys, all of us had space to lay, play, cook, eat, relax and enjoy this amazing spot. Our stay happened to be over Easter weekend and even though this is one of the busiest times of year for the locals our piece of the beach remained nearly exclusively ours the whole time. We brought paddle boards and were able to just walk out the back down the steps and to the water anytime. Constant action from Manta Rays and Whales out our windows just topped it. And the generosity of one of Mark's fishing clients provided us with some great Dorado for dinner at German's! Can't wait to come back again
