About The Owner

I am married and have two kids who love vacationing in Cabo.

I enjoy fishing, surfing, scuba diving, and coaching youth sports.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2008

Why The Owner chose East Cape

Our extended family have been going to Cabo to celebrate Thanksgiving every year. One year while staying in Cabo Pulmo, we drove up the coast and discovered Los Barriles. We bought our condo while under construction a few months later. We like the location and the tranquility. We bought at the Villas De Cortez because it is part of the Hotel Palmas De Cortez, which is the heart of East Cape. Everything you need, including shuttles, water sport rentals and fishing reservations, are here.

What makes this villa unique

Benefits include exclusive pools while being able to share the pools and amenities of the hotel. There is a private 9 hole golf course on the property. Restaurants and grocery store are an easy walking distance. You can watch the fishing boats come in with flags and go to the pier to watch the fish being unloaded. I enjoy having a few coronas and sushi at the pool after a long day of fishing.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It was very peaceful with very few units in the complex occupied while we were

there. Many days we had two private pools or shared them with only two or three other folks.

Living in your condo was a delight. We found the studio spacious and

well equipped for our needs. Sunrise with coffee on the deck allowed us to see

and hear the rays heading south (for breakfast?), see whales in the bay and a

school of what looked like dolphins and a pair of sea lions. We enjoyed dinner

downstairs and walking to dinner "in town", the local carnival parade and the

generally relaxed feeling in town.

Thank you for letting us rent your condo!

We loved Los Barrilas and this condo! We have been to Cabo San Lucas several times but have never been up into East Cape. It's awesome! Nice and laid back. Met a ton of locals. Everyone is friendly! Amazing staff at Villas de Cortez.

When you go rent a quad and go exploring. Lots to see and more great restaurants than you can try in 1 week.

We will be back!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect condo in Los Barriles. Ideal for two people but could easily accommodate one or two more with the sleeper sofa. Very well appointed and in excellent condition. The Murphy bed is fantastic, it gives you extra room during the day and it was wonderful to sleep on. Great end unit on the 2nd floor. Couldn't ask for better!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding accomodations centrally located in this fisherman's haven. Great views from the balcony of the pool (bar) and ocean. The condo is fully stocked with all the ammenities if you want to be self sufficient. However, the food in the area is so good and fresh, you may not want to eat in. Owner and on scene staff were very friendly and accomodating. I am definitely going to utilize this place when I go back to Los Barriles!!!

Owner's Response: I am pleased to hear of your great experience. I agree it is nice being able to dine "at home" or select one of the many fine restaurants within walking distance. Our building manager "Pedro" is very accommodating. My family just got back yesterday from a 5 day trip. We caught a few dorado and grilled them up that night on the BBQ out front. Pedro ensures everything is in fine working order. We had family friends join us for their first time in Baja, and they are hooked!

Nice Studio Condo in a Nice Resort

  • 4 of 5

I really REALLY enjoyed my month in the condo. I would have given 5 stars if it weren't for two issues. Number 1 - I'm used to a pretty soft bed. The Murphy is not soft. It wasn't to my liking. Might be different for you. Issue Number 2 - You can't have your cake and eat it too - meaning you can't let in the fresh air and sleep late in the morning. These condos are located between the boat yard and the launch. EVERY morning at 6AM the big cat starts up and hauls boats right past the balcony for about an hour. If you close the sliding door and the heavy drapes, you can barely hear it.

Other than those, it's a very nice condo with everything you need and it has very nice finishes. The pool, beach, restaurant and bar couldn't be more convenient. I think the Bayview Bar and Restaurant is the nicest in town and it's right there. They were about the only restaurant in town that had Dorado almost every day. It's illegal to fish Dorado commercially. The Bayview gets it from the resort's fishing guests. All the servers are very friendly. They were all friends by the end of my stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying and posting a review. There is no denying the morning noise and excitement of fishing. The way they do things in Mexico is very different, and East Cape even more so. To me, its primitive ways adds to the charm.

fishing in las barriles

  • 5 of 5

My son and daughter-in-law stayed in this condo for five nights recently while my husband and I had another unit down the hall. We all thought this was an extremely comfortable and spacious unit with a murphy-type bed that stows away and allows lots of extra entertaining room. The kitchen is equipped wonderfully and all appliance and dishes you need are included. The room is clean and very, very nice. We all enjoyed great fishing during our stay--three sail fish and one marlin plus lots of doratos and bottom fish. Local restaurants were great at preparing our catch and the prices were very reasonable. We'll definitely be back and find these condo a great alternative to hotel stays.
