PRIVATE PARADISE WITH HEATED INFINITY POOL, HOT TUB

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.

Beautiful Home - Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The house was beautiful and very clean. The grounds were very well manicured and immaculate. The pool was great - perfect temperature. The location of the house was ideal, quiet street with privacy yet close enough to town to make a quick run in or spend the day eating and shopping. The beaches in the area are nice, and not crowded like many other places. The people who live in Los Barriles are very friendly. My wife and I and 3 kids enjoyed the vacation very much and intend on returning. The owners were gracious and helpful in planning our trip. Thank you for a great stay - we highly recommend Casa Esplendida for a relaxing vacation in the sun.

BACK TO OUR TEN STAR RESORT

  • 5 of 5
We were so fortunate to have the opportunity to start the New Year in our favorite "get-away", which of course is Casa Esplendida. We so enjoyed the solitude, privacy and ammenities. We spent two weeks this trip which gave us plenty of time to discover the beauty and culture of Los Barriles. The Saturday Market gave us a taste of the local foods, art and music...an absolute "must do". Can't forget the fresh fish & home made tamales that were delivered to our door....what a treat! We loved the expansive outdoor living area, which from any angle, provides you with the most spectular views of the Sea of Cortez...we shall return.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
What a blissful oasis Casa Esplendida is. I felt like I was part of the sea with the infinity pool and an immense tile deck that served up glorious sunrises. Being up a little bit on the hillside gave our group spectacular views, and an easy sea breeze. I layed in the hammock for hours reading a book, dozing off, just in heaven relaxing, and I don't relax easily! And, the casa was spotless, I love that. I would return again and again. Gracias los Barriles, Baja California and Casa Esplendida!

Beautiful Casa

  • 5 of 5
My stay at Casa Explendida was both relaxing and exciting. I spent time in the hot tub and the pool and had fun times on the terraces with family and friends. I loved watching the whales and the many dolphins who jump and splash as they swim by. It also was interesting to explore the quaint little town of Los Barriles.

All the best that Mexico has to offer comes together in Los Barriles. A combination of superlative weather, natural beauty, culture and slower pace of life make this the perfect place to vacation. If you like Mexico and are looking for something more personal than the mega-resort feel of Cabo San Lucas, you'll love the small town atmosphere and sense of safety and community you find here in Los Barriles.

The Mexican state of Baja California Sur occupies the lower half of the Baja California Peninsula from the 28th parallel to the southern tip or “Land’s End”. It is bordered by the state of Baja California to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Sea of Cortez, to the east. Los Barriles is located on the eastern coast in an area referred to as Cabo Este (East Cape) about halfway between Cabo San Lucas and the charming capital of La Paz. Both those cities host international airports, the nearest (SJD) being less than an hour’s drive from Los Barriles.

The amazing diversity of the landscape has given rise to equally amazing and diverse flora and fauna. Between the rocky coast on the Pacific side and the flat sandy beaches of the Sea of Cortez, you'll find Cardón filled deserts, ancient mango groves, and conifer covered mountain ranges. It is estimated that there are over 125 species of plants found only in this region.

This area is extremely popular with bird watchers who seek out Baja California as it is home to six endemic birds. Although many North American Birds can be found in Baja California there are six birds that can be found only in Baja. These Birds are the Cape Pygmy Owl, Xantus's Hummingbird, Gray Thrasher, Belding's Yellowthroat, Baird's Junco, and Cape Robin.

Of course, the two great bodies of water provide constant access to a wide array of sea life. Jacques Cousteau called the Sea of Cortez the “aquarium of the world.” Whale watching is popular here and while you’re on the water you are also likely to see manta rays, sea turtles, dolphins, and whale sharks.

With less than 10” of rain a year, Los Barriles easily qualifies as desert. However, during the fall it is not uncommon to get a good downpour that truly brings the desert to life. Temperatures average between 63º and 84º Fahrenheit making it comfortable year-round.

Shortly after the discovery of southern Baja by Hernan Cortez in 1535, the missionaries arrived. A series of Jesuits, Dominican and Franciscan padres left a trail of rustic and beautiful missions leading up the peninsula. Many of these churches have been lovingly restored and are still active today. Rich mineral deposits also contributed to the development of Baja Sur and brought some interesting people to our remote locale. Now the local economy is fueled by tourism, especially our unparalleled sports fishing, though organic farming is gaining popularity and you can find wonderful mangos, dates, and avocados grown in the nearby town of Santiago.

Los Barriles has a population of roughly 5,000 about half of which are locals and half expatriates here full or part time.

English is commonly spoken but there are lots of opportunities to learn the local language with classes and private tutors.

Electricity is provided by the municipality and staying in touch is not a problem. Local phone service is readily available as is high-speed Internet access that supports voice over IP phone service. Highway 1 runs the full length of the peninsula and since it’s completion in 1972 has been constantly upgraded. You'll also find a full-size grocery store, fresh tortillas at the local tortilleria and if you didn't have any luck on the water, you can buy fresh fish delivered right to your door. Dining options include everything from fish tacos under a shady palapa to gourmet Italian cuisine with linen table cloths. Two banks with English speaking help, 2 gas stations, a medical clinic, a dentist, hardware stores and veterinarian are just some of the services.

The pace of life is relaxed here. You can often stroll the beaches of Los Barriles without encountering a soul or head into one of the local hot spots for some action. If you like the outdoors you'll enjoy the easily accessible and safe beaches for swimming, snorkeling, SUPing, Wind surfing, kiting or kayaking. As mentioned earlier, birding is popular as is hiking, exploring on ATV’s, mountain biking or horseback riding. Los Barriles is known for it's exceptional wind surfing and kiteboarding conditions during the winter months. And, of course, you can take advantage of the world-class sports fishing and surf casting for which we are most famous.

Los Barriles offers the perfect combination of infrastructure and remoteness. Here you can find a comfortable home base for your Baja adventures or an elegant retreat for family and friends. It’s all here. You decide how far you want to leave the world behind.
