About Kevin and Beata
Our friend Pamela built and sold Hacienda Palo Blanco, so when we found out it was on the market again, we couldn't pass it up. We know the care and attention to detail that she put into this unique place, and feel so lucky to call it our Baja home away from the polar vortices we suffer from in Chicago.

Why Kevin and Beata chose Los Barriles
When we travel to Baja, we like to surround ourselves with a place that is architecturally interesting. Sure, we can find places that remind us of home or that resemble generic hotel décor, and they can be nice. Casita El Bosque and our home, la Hacienda Palo Blanco, were built by our designer friend in a contemporary Spanish architectural style that is unparalleled in its attention to detail. It is quaint, quiet and romantic with room to roam. Step in to another world...

Wonderful experience, a real gem, very unique property
The property and casita were very much to our liking, We found it very relaxing and laid back. In the late evening looking up at the stars from the hot tub was quite special. The orchard of oranges, lemons, grapefruit and miscellaneous blooming flowers and cacti were very pretty and the grounds well maintained. The casita having wrap around windows and a sky light was pleasant and bright. A cool evening breeze with the windows slightly ajar made for comfortable restful nights. Wolf management does an incredible job looking after your every need in a friendly, prompt, efficient manner. Thank-you. Some sort of transportation is essential if you intend on spending anytime downtown.
Thanks for the nice review. We are glad you had a nice time.
A perfect peaceful sanctuary…
A perfect peaceful sanctuary… which gave us the opportunity to turn down the noise in our lives… And step away from the chaos for a while… Exactly what we needed! Exquisite layout, comfortably appointed, spacious and open design which allows for flexibility and privacy… Perfect match for any style… Close enough to beaches and town… But just far enough from the cacophony! Thank you!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We truly enjoyed having you as our guests and we look forward to your next stay in March when we can meet you personally! The picture updates that you sent us during our stay were lovely. And thank you for the items that you bought and left at our home.
Great place for family vacation
We had a hotel booked in Cabo for a week and wanted something quieter for the first week of our vacation. This place was perfect. While a very short drive to town, beach, and very good restaurants, it was very quiet and felt very far away. The bedrooms had AC and the kitchen had all the basics, plus a great BBQ area near the pool. The living room was large and very nice, but we stopped even opening the door after a couple of days because all we did was swim and eat outside. You will probably fight over who gets the hammock under the palapa where I spent most of my time. Even when it was hot you could get wet in the pool and the breeze in the hammock would cool you down. Kevin responded quickly and was very helpful. His kids are around the same age as ours so he left out some baby/kid stuff for our convenience. We would highly recommend this place and are talking to a few friends and family about renting the whole place in the future. The only word of caution I have is that the description of the two-bedroom house is a bit misleading. The rooms are not connected on the inside, they all open to the outside. This is a great layout and what we loved about the house but if we left our 3 and 6 year old in one they would need to go out to the back yard where the pool is, upstairs, and around a corner to get to our bedroom. We ended up sleeping in one room together and not using the other one. This place is great and I highly recommend it, just a heads up if you have small children. If you don't the setup is better than a traditional house because it adds that much more privacy.
As advertised! Plus an extra sumthin' sumthin'...
Lovely hideaway. All previous reviews are spot on describing this location and its amenities. And our family thoroughly enjoyed the place. The property management crew (Wolf, in Los Barriles) are top notch, helpful, and very professional. However we cannot recommend that anyone stay here as your money goes to the owner who was the only blight to an otherwise excellent week. As described, the dining area does accommodate 16 people and we hosted a reunion with family and friends, dinner at 7pm, a lively series of card games at the wonderful outdoor table, with everyone having left around 1030 that evening. The next morning, the owner called my wife and began to berate her, yelling over the phone, about how we threw a wild party and trashed the place. Not once did he (sorry... the doctor; he'll remind you a couple times, bless his heart) ask us any questions about what happened or get our version of events. The property management arrived within 15 minutes and he thoroughly checked every room, kitchen, pool/hot tub and yard to show that we indeed did not damage or spoil any part of the property. We loved Los Barriles and found many more exciting and wondrous places to stay for our next trip.
Since I wasn't there, let me share with you some of the numerous complaints from my neighbors that I received via email and text about you, as well as my management company’s comments about your review. Stuff in quotes is from neighbors:
"Sorry to bother you, but it looks like a big party is starting up at your place, 25 or so people so far. Getting loud over there."
At no time were you authorized to invite anybody to our home, whatever the number. You are supposed to ask permission to more than quadruple the number of guests for which you contracted, which was four.
"Super drunk, loud and smoking pot. Personally I don't care, but not sure how the laws in Mexico are about such things. They had many people there arriving on ATVs. Then, they decided to go racing up and down the road, into the arroyo below the houses causing all kinds of noise and dust. Your area where you park has donut marks all over it from them running their ATVs in fast circles there. Lots of young, loud, drunk men, which is usually a cause for concern."
Who are these people you illegally brought into my home?
"They were going at it until 11:30 or so,” according to my neighbor. My management company also confirmed that you personally told them that the party went to at least 11:30, not 10:30 as you claim in order to make you look better in your review.
“This was way worse than those inconsiderate people back in December. The neighbor on the opposite side of us, Carol, was very pissed as well. Also, the couple that own the two houses on the left just before you drop into the arroyo (well over a two blocks away) were pissed. The couple tried to slow them down as the (expletives deleted) were racing up and down the residential roads, but the people on the ATVs just gave them an f-off look and kept on racing. They also nearly ran over one of our friends that was walking on the road. Very dangerous. Deb and Sandy also were bothered by the noise. So, basically, they pissed off the entire neighborhood."
"And there were way more than 16 people there."
So, besides misrepresenting the truth in your review, you were inconsiderate and dangerous to my neighbors.
Without permission, you invited to my home more than the four people I agreed to rent to and hosted a disruptive party with unruly and rude people and greatly upset my neighbors.
I did not expect to be taken advantage of by such inconsiderate and immature individuals.
Just outside of town--nice and quiet.
My husband and I just spent a great 10 days at the casita. It was very comfortable with everything we needed. It's a very quiet neighborhood and the grounds are just beautiful. We had the whole place to ourselves!
The management company was very helpful whenever we had a question.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We have worked really hard to make sure that our property has everything you need to make your stay pleasant and peaceful. Thanks for the great review!
