Our casa is your vacation oasis! Vacation in our new home and you will experience tranquility like you never have. Your needs will be taken care of with modern-Mexicali flare.
Our clean, well-equipped home is located in a private neighbourhood on a cliff with a breath-taking, panoramic view of the desert, Sea of Cortez and distant mountain ranges. It is minutes from pristine, quiet beaches and downtown.
The living space is 'open-concept' with plenty of windows which highlight the view from every room and let the sun shine in. Our spacious home is perfect for 2 families with children, or 3 couples. Cook gourmet meals in the indoor/outdoor kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances. Wi-Fi Internet and satellite TV are free :)
Discover the charm of friendly Los Barriles with its undiscovered beaches while it's still mostly a secret and remains uncommercialized. The town caters to the many ex-pats living here with its wonderful restaurants, quaint shops, markets, and opportunities to book adventure trips (fishing, kite boarding, ATVs, etc.) And 'Yes,' it's safe! We guarantee you'll fall in Love fast.
Come...bathe in the soothing light of the sunrise over the sea each morning. Don't forget your camera!
We are thrilled you are coming to Los Barriles, Baja Calfornia Sur (BCS) Mexico where there are no bad days! (No Maly Dias)
We came to Los Barriles on a family vacation in February 2011 on the advice of friends. We rented a beach front home and immediately fell in love with the town. Smack in the middle between Los Cabos/Cabo San Lucas and La Paz and a 4 hour direct flight from our home outside of Vancouver, British Columbia we felt it was the perfect place to start building memories. We love the rustic nature and warm energy that embraces this town.
Tracey & Adam Greenberg purchased this house in 2011
Although the beaches in Los Barriles are gorgeous and relatively quite, we choose not to buy a property on the beach. Our home's name is 'Casa Tranquila' which means Tranquil House. That description says it all for us. The ridge we are on is so quiet, peaceful and serene and the view of the ocean, mountains and arroyo from our large deck is absolutely breathtaking.
The experience at Casa Tranquila is completely private as well and that is something we value.
Another consideration are the windy days that happen frequently during the winter months in the Baja. The beach and the beach front homes are completely exposed to the wind. Our casa's home is situated in such a way, that you can comfortably spend any windy day on the deck without getting wind-blown.
Staying at Casa Tranquila provides you with a peaceful and private vacation experience. If you are looking for an opportunity to truly rejuvenate this vacation, then look no further. On those days you want to spend time on the beach, you are only a 5 min drive away (or 5-10 minute bike ride or 20 minute walk or so, depending on which part of the beach you want to go to.) You can also drive into town in 5 minutes to shop and eat.
We stayed at Casa Tranquilla for a week. It was the most tranquil week ever. Every morning you awake to the most stunning views over Los Barilles and the ocean. The house is well equipped and very comfortable. The air conditioning sure is nice! We tried almost all the local restaurants, and there was almost no negative critique (which is unusual, since we claim to be foodies). The locals are extremely friendly and helpful. There are ample activities for everyone. We went Scuba diving. Next time I would love to try the wind surfing. This place is absolutely the place to go if you want to put your feet up, have tequila, and RELAX. I can recommend this place with absolutely certainly. An added bonus; the owners are extremely nice and accommodating! Tranquil at Tranquilla!
At the end of each day there is something spectacular that takes place outside the casa. It took a while to notice what it was. At first it was the soft sound of a bell. Not the annoying ringing of an alarm or mobile phone, but a subtle "clang, clang" in the valley below. Associated with the bells was the movement of cows. The sound was coming from the bells around their neck. These cows, each day, were on a daily pilgrimage from their places of grazing to their places of rest. Their slow moving across the valley below became an instant reminder to casa inhabitants to slow down, enjoy a time of rest, go with the rhythms of the land.
I cannot recommend the casa enough. I have been to Mexico a few times , always to a resort, but never before have I been able to safely (a key word) explore a local community.
Nestled above a dried river bed and moments away from sandy beeches and amazing local food, Tracey and Adam's casa become my week-long home. I shared the space with two dear friends. The three of us quickly becoming attune to the rhythms of life in Los Barriles (inspired by the calm rhythms of the cow daily journeys).
The casa was spacious, clean, full of everything we needed (ample towels, good beds, great kitchenware). We found it easy to explore the region either on bike or by renting a car. The locals were welcoming, and it was easy to meet others tourists (and locals who have made Los Barriles their home).
If you need to get away and stay in a space of calm (avoiding the cacophony of urban life) this is a great place.
We had a lovely stay at Casa Tranquila. Watching the sunrise over the sea of Cortez from the patio over morning coffee, and the prolific number of varied bird species going to and fro about their business. The Casa is laid out in a lovely way, very spacious, and easily houses two families. The view is outstanding, looking over the arroyo to the little town of Los Barriles, where we dined on fresh seafood, savoury Mexican food, and of course, Tio Pablo's prime rib dinner! Add a few margueritas, and we certainly didn't feel like coming home. Would go again, and would certainly recommend Casa Tranquila to anyone in need of a relaxing beach vacation.
This house was all that was promised and more! It has all the newest amenities, kitchen is well stocked, furnishings are new and comfortable. It is located in Los Barriles, overlooking a wide arroyo. Los Barriles is quaint fishing village with many inexpensive and good restaurants. You will need a car to get to the beach, one of which is straight across the road. We really enjoyed the huge deck, overlooking the arroyo. At night you are lulled to sleep by the peaceful ringing of the cowbells as the cows make their way to their own beds! Perfect and completely private! We will be back!
My husband and I spent 8 incredible, relaxing days at this wonderful house. When we weren't exploring Los Barriles, La Paz, San Jose del Cabo and Bueno Vista, we were relaxing on the huge back deck in total privacy. While you do need a car, the beautiful, non-crowded beaches are right across the highway and down the road. Los Barriles is a quaint fishing village with lots of good, in-expensive restaurants to choose from. The house has all the amenities and everything was in perfect condition-new and well maintained. My favorite part was sitting on the deck at night, reading by the light of my Kindle and listening to the musical serenade of the cow bells in the arroyo as the cows walked to their night time resting place. Perfect!
Wonderful home away from home. Everything a person could ask for, plus amazing views . Very accommodating owners. Los Barriles is an awesome little town with great local people and area. Hope to return. Thanks A/T & E
ATV's are a popular mode of transportation around town. You may want to rent one in town to explore the arroyos and countless back-country trails and roads or just to ride up and down the coast along the beach.
The beachfront resort in town, Palmas de Cortez, welcomes visitors to come and enjoy their facilities such as their swim up bar infinity pool and hot tub as long as you are enjoying one of their refreshing margaritas or nacho plates with fresh avocado or other such delectables. They have one of our favourite restaurants in town too which is also open to visitors.
