Welcome to Casa De Dos Perros, our paradise in Baja! The owners built this 3400SF home in 2006 to spend time in the winter, so no expense or personal comfort was spared. Our home has never been rented before, but it is a shame not to share this fabulous spot when we can't be there! We call our home a Mexican Contemporary due to its soaring 22' ceilings and the wall of glass doors that open to the fantastically beautiful Sea of Cortez. From the minute you come in the private front gate, prepare yourself for the stunning view once you open the front door. It's an infinite expanse of BLUE: the blue, all tile, infinity edge pool, and beyond, the open Sea of Cortez extending to the horizon... I don't think it gets any better than this!
If you like to cook like we do, this is the place to do it. Our well stocked kitchen has all of the appropriate utensils, knives, pots & pans, and small appliances to prepare anything possible. (If you don't like to cook, just call one of the many caterers for a delicious, reasonably priced Mexican buffet! The abundance of fresh fish from the Sea is amazing..) Just steps from the 8' island (with bar stools)is a propane, stainless steel barbeque. It is plumbed directly into the propane tank (no small bottles to run out during cooking!). Adjacent to this is another, outdoor bar that seats 6, and a large sunken, cushioned beach-wood burning fire pit. Light the propane torch bowl (again plumbed into the propane supply tank) to give your poolside parties a special ambiance! Our unique stainless steel, glass topped dining table seats 6-8 people and has wheels to move it outside for poolside dining, or inside for a fireside meal.
Our home is on city supplied well water, purified with an ultraviolet filter system throughout the house. In addition, the kitchen sink is equipped with a reverse osmosis drinking spout.
In the living room, 12' of comfortable couches surround a 42' flatscreen TV with Dish Network satellite service. Two additional TV's are in the kitchen and master bedroom.
All of our 3 bedrooms have king size beds, so our home is perfect for 2 or 3 couples. All bedrooms are upstairs with beautiful views and air conditioning when needed.
Los Barriles is a beautiful little town with the feel of real Mexico. Cows and goats roam freely amongst the residents and visitors! It is NOT Cabo San Lucas, but a serenely gorgeous area of stunning natural beauty, lovely sunrises and sunsets, superb hiking and biking opportunities and friendly relaxed folks. However, there are many day activities to choose from: snorkeling, kayaking from your beachfront, kite boarding and wind surfing, exploring via ATVs and of course, world class sport fishing.
We are located 4 miles north of the Los Barriles village, with 3 grocery stores, many restaurants and shops. We have several farms offering organic fresh vegetables, eggs and fruits!
We are friendly owners who are proud of our little town and will happily advise you of its many charms...just ask. We also are happy to send more photos.

We live in Minnesota. By chance we rented the proerty and eventualy puchased the property from the original owners. Once we retire, our plan is to spend the entire winter in our new home in Baja. Because of our special home in southern Baja, we now define winter as any temperature below 70 degrees! We are very active and enjoy the exercise opportunities right out our door: biking, hiking, kayaking, kiting, snorkling, and fishing.
We searched most of the warm weather destinations for several yrs before settling into our little town of Los Barriles. While we met many interesting Americans in these communities, Los Barriles had everything we were looking for: calm, warm waters,a peaceful community of both Americans and Mexicans, close to a large airport and hospital, and most importantly warm weather in the winter! We have made SO many good friends in a few short years. The Mexican people are warm and accepting of our adopting their town as our second home. Here is a special spot where you can be as active and social as you would like, or sit quietly and read a book. Watching the ocean from our patio is especially wonderful~~there is always something jumping, a fish, a dolphin, a whale! The Sea of Cortez is abundant with life.
Since our home is on the last stretch of beachfront north of town, it is a very private and special spot. Heading up the beachroad north (right out our front door) via bike, foot or car, one rarely sees a person, perhaps a fisherman catching dinner..the sea and shoreline here is breathtaking, peaceful and exciting all at once. If you are lucky to come during a full moon, it rises over the water straight out from our house..so beautiful!
