About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4 adults comfortably)

Luxurious Ground Floor Beachfront Villa invites you to walk right out your door to the white sand beach and refreshing pool. This property along with its sister property, Palmas De Cortez Resort, are recognized as 'The Place To Stay' in Los Barriles.

We are located in the heart of the quaint fishing village of Los Barriles, Baja California Sur and within walking distance to shops, grocery stores and wonderful restaurants. Due to our central location, no rental car is necessary and transportation is available to and from the San Jose Del Cabo and La Paz airport.

We have been told by our return guests that we have the nicest, most private unit in our complex, both for location and amenities.

Our Villa is approximately 1200 sq.feet in size. It is divided into two main rooms (living room with new sectional couch and queen size pull out bed and master bedroom with king size bed). There is also a queen size automatic blow up air mattress and a small cot for additional sleep options. There is separate airconditioning in each room as well as ceiling fans in both rooms.

An out door shower is provided for your return from the beach. This villa is perfect for families, friends or couples wishing to have separate sleeping quarters and their own private bathrooms.

It is beautifully appointed with marble countertops, marble floors and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is spacious with all the equipment for the most creative cooks; including a Sub Zero refrigerator, Viking cooktop and two separate sinks.

Enjoy a brand new 46' Flat Screen HDTV for those of you that want to stay connected to the outside world or don't want to miss american Idol. We are not the least expensive 1 bedroom but as all our guests will tell you, we are the best.

Our Villa comes with *FREE* wireless internet service in our unit, so bring your laptop and stay connected while you're away.

The Villa De Cortez complex has a Private Beachfront Infinity Edge pool with swim up bar plus separate hot tub and small children's pool. There are also three nine hole executive golf courses adjacent to the property. The Van Wormer's new restaurant (formerly Solomon's Landing) is located between the Villa De Cortez and the Palmas De Cortez resorts. The food is excellent and you can't beat the view! Be sure to ask about their

daily Happy Hour.

The East Cape is world famous for its sport fishing and is considered to be the 'fishing capital of the world'. Fishing charters are available just steps away at the adjoining Hotel Palmas De Cortez owned and operated by Van Wormer Resorts. Don't fish? You can charter a boat for a day of sight seeing, whale watching, diving or snorkeling right next door.

For those of you that kite surf or wind surf, you can go right out to the beach from the villa and take off. No need to walk or drive to North Beach.

Guests are invited to use the amenities at the Palmas De Cortez which include a day spa,(the best massage I've ever had), tennis courts, gym and a variety of water and outdoor activities such as jet skiing, kayaking or shore fishing and ATV rentals.

Cabo Pulmo, with world renowned diving and snorkeling, is just an hour south. You can rent an ATV within walking distance so you can explore the miles of roads and trails that lead to deserted beaches or down an arroyo up into the mountains. A day trip to Santiago, 30 minutes away, provides waterfalls, hot springs, and authentic Mexican Pueblo charm.

You will fall in love with this town and the people just as we did. Not only are the locals friendly and accommodating but you will feel safe and secure in a luxurious environment with all the flavor of Old Mexico.

If you want a little more excitement, you can drive south about 90 minutes to Cabo San Lucas and go see Sammy Hagar's famous Cabo Wabo. After a day in 'the city', you'll be anxious to get back to the serenity and relaxation of Los Barriles.

*** We try to keep our calendar up to date but sometimes we have last minute cancellations or schedule changes. Please feel free to call us to see if we have an opening that does not show on our calendar. **************

About Robin Jackman

I am I a retired optometrist and my husband deals in collectables and is a world class Disc golf player. We enjoy racing cars for a hobby and love to get warm and kite surf in the winter.

Robin Jackman purchased this condo in 2006

Why Robin Jackman chose East Cape

My husband and I fell in love with this beautiful town and magical beach the very first time we visited. The atmosphere is so peaceful and laid back that you can't help but relax. We wanted a winter get away from the snow and a place we could drive to. Los Barriles is everything we wanted and so much more than we expected. We can hop on a plane from Durango Colorado in the morning and be in our villa by lunch time!

What makes this condo unique

One of the things we love the most about our villa is the view of the Sea of Cortez and the coastline. We love 'outdoor living' and being on oceanfront ground floor level allows us to walk right out our door morning or night and walk on an uncrowded beach. Don't forget a margarita on the terrace at happy hour watching the boats return from a day of fishing. You can never get enough!

Favorite Place in Los Barriles!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and loved staying in this main-level one-bedroom condo that opens right out to the pools, swim-up bar and beach. This unit is well-appointed with a fully functioning kitchen with lots of dishes and appliances (which sometimes places are lacking). The view is terrific, the atmosphere has a very relaxing vibe, all the people we met were extremely nice and the view is amazing. We enjoyed watching the boats go out each morning and come back in each afternoon, counting their fish flags and checking in on the fishing tournament. Pedro, the on-site manager (?) was so wonderful to us and checked on us several times to make sure everything was okay. He also helped us arrange for a side-by-side to take up to the arroyo. Beautiful... and fun! The food at the Bay View restaurant is wonderful and there is a great variety which it makes it easy for every one to find something they like. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be back! Thank you for a wonderful time and excellent accommodations.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We love Casa Bella. The owners, Kurt and Robin, are fabulous, Los Barriles is absolutely beautiful, the locals are incredible, and Casa Bella is lovely. Pedro was very helpful with checking us in, maintenance, and hooking us up with deep sea fishing and ATV excursions. Our family has stayed here twice and loved every moment both trips. Wether your idea of a little getaway in Mexico is laying by the pool, swimming in the ocean, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, ATV adventures, wind surfing, whale encounters, putzing around town, mingling with locals, shopping for treasures, eating at numerous local, delicious restaurants, trekking to waterfalls, or road tripping to other towns in B.C.S., this location gives you access to it all. We loved shopping at the grocery store and cooking meals at the villa, too. Sunrises are breathtaking. Additionally, access to the owners' Wi-fi and all the attached resort amenities was wonderful. So much less crowded and touristy than Cabo, which is fun for a day to go snorkel and see El Arco, but Los Barriles is far more authentic and relaxing. We recommend perusing through the resource binder Kurt and Robin have compiled in the villa as it is a wealth of information regarding restaurants and activities. Our family loves traveling, and few places do we return to more than for Los Barriles and specifically Casa Bella, twice wasn't enough. We'll be back again and again!

Nice as always

  • 5 of 5

Very nice condo on the first floor away from any noise. Had a great time here as this condo is kept up nice and has everything that you need. If there are any issues that come up Pedro the property manager is always around to help. He is very handy and can fix almost anything himself. Had a bunch of locals over for a BBQ and it works out so much better being on the first floor. We will be back next summer.

Family fun

  • 5 of 5

We are just finishing another wonderful stay at Casa Bella. I have worked and traveled all over central America but always find myself taking my family to los barriles, it's a true gem away from the craziness the tourist traps have. The people are friendly the weather is wonderful and the tacos the best.

I highly recommend this condo. Robin is a dream to work with, the condo has everything you need and the sunrises are undeniably the best.

I come to fish here but have no problem leaving my wife and kids at the condo and pool. They feel safe and comfortable and are always waiting with smiles to see what I caught.

I will return again but remember sssshhhh we don't want the crazies to come and ruin paradise!!!
