About Larry Cooper
My first visit to Los Barriles was in 1979. I rented a motor home hooked up my 24’ Skipjack sportfisher and headed from Coronado, CA to points unknown with my my wife Terri, & 2 kids who were 4 & 2. We had no itinerary and 3 months to kill so off we went for an adventure that would change our lives forever.
First stop, Mulege 7.5 hours north of Los Barriles. Stayed for a week, fished, played, and had fun in Bahia Conception. Next stop Loreto area specificaly Puerto Escondido. Stayed 4 days and off we went (not impressed). Next stop La Paz gross, just a big city no charm.
Next stop Los Barriles. We looked at each other and said this is it. Heaven on earth! Found a camp spot right on the beach at the now famous Martin Verdugos Motel & Camping resort. We never moved another inch. We came back every year until 1992 when we were on our way down driving with our last load of building materials to finish our new home when a bus hit our utility trailer causing us to jackknife and roll over. The accident resulted in a spinal cord injury for me and just 3 stitches for my wife. Since then, as a Qudrapeligic, designer and builder, I have finished 12 luxury high-end homes including our newest casa and guest Villa, “VillaTranquillo”.
We welcome you to our “Little slice of heaven” and hope you find it as magical as we do!
In 2007 I started Los Cabos Adventures which is a sportfishing and whale watching charter corporation. We have designed and custom outfitted mexico's only completely wheelchair accessible sportfisher.
We now live in the main Villa from October through May. Spending the summer in the high sierras north of Truckee, CA.
My kids are now 33 and 35. We now have 4 grandchildren so the love of Los Barilles will continue through out our next generations.
Larry Cooper purchased this villa in 2006
Why Larry Cooper chose Los Barriles
When I could finally afford to invest in Los Barriles in 1989 I purchased the last 2 beach front lots in the Village of Los Barriles. I knew I wanted to be in town and not north of the 2 big Arroyos due to flooding during hurricane season. The properties up north were way cheaper for a reason, plus the beaches north were all rocks. We completed our first home in 1993 then sold it in 2004 because the house was huge and the kids and grandkids were busy with there lives and no one was coming down. So we designed the 'Guest Villa' just for us. Its all we needed. 3/4's to completion, both of our adult kids started whining about having to camp on the property in a trailer. So prior to completion, we quickly designed the main house and got it going as well. The whole project, including landscaping, was done in 18 months!
To us its not just a house or a home but a work of art.
Hope you feel the same.
What makes this villa unique
We disigned this new Villa with our lifestyle in mind. We loved eating outdoors so we put the master suite on the water and the other bedrooms to the back so we would have room for a giant outdoor 'Palapa Great Room'. We stratigically placed it on the south side of the main Villa so as to be protected from the winter north winds. Now we can enjoy outdoor living all year round.
