A little slice of heaven in a Villa de Cortez condo on the edge of the gated Hotel Palmas de Cortez property in the little fishing village of Los Barriles on the Sea of Cortez.
This beautiful top floor condo provides privacy and services, a place to completely relax or fill your days with activities. With balconies off the bedroom and living room, you can look down over the pool to the beach and the Sea.
The 1 bedroom condo is roughly 1200 square feet with marble floors and granite counter tops. The master bedroom has a balcony, king size bed, TV, and beautiful en suite bathroom. The living room has a balcony, TV, Stereo, DVD player and pull-out couch and an additional bathroom with shower. There is an additional single roll-away bed available. The kitchen has a Viking stovetop range, GE dishwasher, Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine cooler.
There is an optional access door connecting to the unit next door if you would like to rent 2 connecting units.
Visitors staying in Villa de Cortez condos have the use of all of the amenities at the adjacent Hotel Palmas de Cortez, their pools, bars and restaurants, spa, golf, tennis and sports activities. The pool and swim-up bar at the condo are for the exclusive use of condo residents.
The Villa de Cortez is one of the finest boutique resorts on the East Cape. It is the perfect place to just relax or take part in the many activities available: world class deep sea fishing and windsurfing, 9-hole golf course on the property, biking, hiking, 4-wheeling or just strolling miles of sandy beaches or take a day trip to the best diving area on the Pacific Coast just 12 miles south of the resort.
The little town of Los Barriles is within easy walking distance with shops, restaurants and bars, grocery stores and an Ameri-Med clinic just steps from the resort's entry gate.
Current residents of Sunrise, FL. Fell in love with Los Barriles in 2001. Will live there one day.
Jeanie Ross & Russell Newton purchased this condo in 2005
Fell in love with Los Barriles in 2001. Because of work we haven't been able to come down as often as we wish we could. We'll live there one day. We have a local manager.
It's a little slice of heaven. The weather is perfect. You sit on the balconies and watch the pelicans floating on the Sea of Cortez. You walk downstairs to the pool, the bar and the beach. You can walk anywhere in town. The food is wonderful. The people are lovely and the property is beautiful and provides all you would need in a vacation.
We have stayed at several of the units in this building. I was a bit apprehensive to rent this one because of some of the negative reviews. However, we were so pleasantly surprised with our experience! The owner was very responsive when I asked questions about the property and even tried to get the adjoining unit for my parents (unfortunately, it was already booked). The unit was in great shape and, although, the dryer and dishwasher weren't outstanding, they worked and were typical for Mexico. The balconies on the 1 bedrooms aren't very large, but that is the case for all of them. Overall, it was a great stay and the unit was very clean and very nice and the A/C worked great! Hint to future renters: be sure to get the unit number from the owner before you arrive.
The condo is beautiful and the view from the decks out onto the Sea of Cortez is gorgeous. Watching the sun rise and drinking a cup of coffee on the deck was one of our favorite things to do. Walking on the beach is so nice and there are several very good restaurants close by to enjoy.
The annoying thing was that several of the appliances in the condo were not functioning. The friendly condo maintenance person mentioned when we arrived that the dishwasher wasn't working. The next morning we tried to heat something in the microwave and discovered that it was non-functional. A few days later we tried to do a small load of clothes in the washer and water began running out the bottom onto the floor; and when we tried the clothes dryer, there was no heat coming out. Also there is a nice bath tub in the master bath, but the drain stopper doesn't work, so the only way to take a bath is to put a wash cloth over the drain and hope the water doesn't drain out before you're done bathing. It is a minor thing but there were several light bulbs burned out around the condo and in need of being replaced.
We mentioned the microwave and clothes washer/dryer issues to the maintenance person and he sent a couple of emails to the owners to see if they wanted to repair or replace the appliances, but he got no reply during the duration of our stay. Hopefully all these things will be taken care of soon.
Beautiful views...quality appointments throughout....Friendly staff...Could hear the waves from living areas and bedroom...loved loved loved it. Have been coming to Los Cabos for 5 or so years but this is my favorite location. Very Special.
A great place to relax or fill your days with activities. The best scuba/snorkeling on the Pacific coast is 12 miles south. Great little places to eat in town plus several on the resort property.
