Los Barriles House Rental Photos and Description
Sweeping Panoramic views of the Sea of Cortez, 2200 SF inside, 1600 SF outside
Mi casa es su casa when you visit Casa Esplendida in quaint and quiet Los Barriles, Baja California Sur, Mexico. You will be 4 miles north of Los Barriles and a 2-3 minute stroll from the tranquil Sea of Cortez.
Elevated and close enough to not only see passing whales but close enough to hear them spouting is a special treat. Momma and baby may even perform right before your eyes. What a show!! Dolphins cruise by in close and the mobula rays are often present. The rays sound like rapidly popping popcorn when they are numerous in the bay. The sound echoes on the still water.
Listen to the soft waves washing onto the sandy beach below or when the waves are a little more forceful, you will hear the rounded rocks tumbling in the surf. Drift away on your mexican equivalent of a king size tempurpedic memory foam mattress or take a nap in the hammock.
After several years of exploring Southern Baja (and several other countries) to find our “perfect” location to build our secure private paradise, we purchased two lots side by side and finished building Casa Esplendida in 2004.
Sweeping panoramic views of the entire Bahia de los Palmas from the infamous Punta Pescadero (where Hollywood elites such as John Wayne and Bing Crosby came to fish) to the north and Punta Colorado 180 degrees to the south. The water is swimmable and allows terrific fishing, snorkeling, kiting, suping and kayaking opportunities, all from the uncrowded sandy beach before you.
When you stay at Casa Esplendida, you will enter into casual luxury, including your own kidney shaped large private heated infinity edge pool, and a 4-6 person double jetted relaxing hot tub. Both have views that drop into the beautiful blue and turquoise Sea of Cortez.
2200 SF of open spacious indoor living with 1600 SF of private beautifully landscaped terraces and lots of room to roam on a 1/2 acre. You'll find mango, papaya, orange and banana trees. If some of the trees are in season, Francisco may bring you fresh fruit for your morning fruit bowl or smoothie.
Comfortable chairs, tables, lounges and a custom double hammock are strategically placed for premium enjoyment of vacation time. Feel like a dinner party? Plenty of room for that too, inside or out.
The casa is clean, comfortable and secure with plenty of secure parking and two fully gated entrances complete with intercoms and remote entry. There are wall controlled fans in every room.
The great room boasts a 16' ceiling and in the center there is an exquisite round recessed lighted mural painted by Iliana, one of our famous local artists. You will find Iliana's work throughout the property.
The hidden cedar custom entertainment center has a 42'' plasma HDTV, DVR, satellite TV with some channels in HD (very rare here), Bose DVD player, and a Marantz surround sound system that extends into the master bath and office. High speed wireless internet is available.
A wall of screened sliding doors open onto expansive outdoor living. The pool, hot tub and oh yes....those expansive water and mountain views. You can see wildlife, windsurfers, kiters, SUPers, kayakers, fishing boats, colorful birds and just relaxation. The view over the bay is more active than some as we are positioned to see the fishing boats coming and going from the hotels in Los Barriles and the fishing village of La Rivera. Upon their return to port, they will display flags identifying the fish they caught and how many.
Many mornings you may be treated to one of our outstanding East Cape sunrises. Get your coffee, find your seat, sit back and enjoy the show. Before your eyes, a gorgeous scene of bold and beautiful colors slowly fade to pastels and eventually to blue sky and warmth. It is truly an awe inspiring sight to behold.
All the time you are enjoying the show, the birds will be frolicking in the palms and calling to one another.
The kitchen is complete with stainless appliances, mexican cedar cabinetry, gas cooktop, 14' concrete island and two sinks. There is plenty of room for more than one cook as you prepare your catch of the day or local fresh seafood which can be delivered right to your door. You will also have fresh tamales, burritos and empanadas delivered right to you door. For dining out options, Los Barriles boasts many fine restaurants.
Even though Los Barriles has a potable public drinking water system, there is a triple reverse osmosis filter system with spouts on the main kitchen sink and in the double doored refrigerator. You will find plenty of spices in the pull out cabinet next to the walled oven.
There is a spacious master bedroom/bath hidden behind triple shoji doors. A screened slider opens onto the pool and hot tub. Rest peacefully on the king size memory foam bed or watch TV on the flat screen. A second bedroom with a comfortable queen bed and another full bath are at the other end of the casa. The large office has a futon with queen blow up air mattress.
Francisco and Teresa are our wonderful caretakers. Teresa will efficiently clean for you as often as you like. We can also arrange for transportation to and from the airport or tours with our driver Homar. We provide a concierge to show you around the place and explain the features of the Casa and the area. Her job is to help you plan your vacation and arrange anything you need.
We are pleased to help make your vacation all you expect it to be when you stay at Casa Esplendida.
