About Janice Hodson
We fell in love with the beautiful quiet town of Los Barriles years ago. We decided we wanted a little piece of the paradise. We purchased the studio suite 9 years ago, and decided we wanted to share our good fortune.
Janice Hodson purchased this Studio in 2009

Clean and comfortable. Perfect location
Great location. Nice base camp for exploring the city and area surrounding. Suggest renting atv upon arrival.
We arrived and took the elevator right up to our door, everything was just as noted, beautiful view, wifi worked easily, all the appliances worked and bed was comfy. Plenty of towels, blankets, clean and just so comfortable. Can't comment on the TV, we never turned it on! I cannot think of a thing I'd change with this unit. Swam in the pool everyday. Ventured over to the pools and hot tub at hotel each day and enjoyed that as well. The private pools at condos were much nicer and didn't have all the chlorine of the hotel pools Will we be back, yes, yes of course. Recommend to others, YES! Don't hesitate to stay here, it's beautiful.
Thanks, so glad you enjoyed your time.
Fantastic views, clean and friendly
Rent a Quad! there is so much to explore. Go fishing! Try out the little eat places in town, you will be pleasantly surprised. Swimming in the ocean is safe, no ripe tides in area of the condo.
Enjoyed are stay and our planning to go back.
Great location with Views
Would consider staying at this unit for a few days, as well equipped and maintained. The unit is as described as it is a studio with nice living area and balcony. Kitchen is relatively small, but efficient as it is galley style, with all you may need in terms of dishes, pans, and full size refrig. Open the front door which has a screen door, and you get a nice breeze. You should know that the A/C is off for the "winter" months so use of the fan in the unit is essential to keep it cool during the day as temps were close to 80 degrees when we were there - the material provided prior to the stay did say the unit has no air conditioning and this apparently was decided by the HOA, not necessarily the owner of the unit (it is off for the entire building). Very nice unit that is immaculate! Thanks to the owner and maintenance guy onsite who was very friendly and attentive to the needs of all.
Watched several whales from the balcony. Spent time walking the lovely beach and watching world-class kite boarders as the winds were strong, with the exception of a couple of days. The pool is cold, so don't count on spending much time in it. We were told that no pools are heated in the immediate area of Los Barrilles or the East Cape.
Fantastic condo, extremely well equiped!
My wife and I loved our stay at the Villas De Cortez! (Casa de Hodson) Beautiful and well equipped condo with fantastic view of the ocean and beach (over a beautiful pool), and a great balcony to observe the sun rise (!), pelicans (many) , and kiters (only a few at this end). The bed and furniture were very comfortable and functional, and the condo and entire building were very quiet, very clean, and peaceful. We slept with the sliding door to the balcony open all night.
The condos are located on the southern edge of Los Barilles, but its an easy walk to the northern end along the beach (about 15 minutes). Check out La Playa at the northern end for a cabana style restaurant while watching the kiters and windsurfers. Easy walk to town, which has some great restaurants (our favorites were El Viejo for lunch, Campestra Triny for dinner).
Only stayed seven days (Dec 30 - Jan 6), and would have stayed for months if we could have! Planning to make it back next year. Thank you Janice and Peter!
Beautiful condo overlooking Sea of Cortez
Stayed at condo for two weeks with wife and two children (ages 9 and 11). Walked to restaurants and supermarket every day. Layout of condo is very well done and didn't feel like a studio. King size bed very comfortable with nice reading lamps on each side. Fold out couch worked great for kids and extra bedding and pillows there. Had several conversations with others during our stay and heard complaints that their condos had appliances that didn't work. Not at ours. Everything well taken care of and clean. Everything worked. Coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster oven, cook top, blender all worked great. TV appeared to work also but we didn't watch it. View from deck way to good to sit in front of TV. We saw whales several times from deck and pool area. One day they were breaching about a mile off shore. Very cool. Pedro was always around and very helpful. I'm a kiteboarder and was able to kite 8 out of 14 days. Not bad, and from what I heard that is somewhat low compared to the norm. You can kite right from condo on most days but if wind is out of NW it can be a little tricky but all you have to do is walk 10 minutes up beach and out of shelter of condo building and launch with no problem. Didn't need to have much contact with owners but when I did they where quick to respond and very helpful. Janice recommended using Max Lucero for shuttle ride to/from SJDC. He was awesome and very reliable. Also speaks English which, in my experience after going to Mexico 4 times, is helpful when you are arriving after traveling long hours. Overall just a great place to relax and enjoy Baja living. Thank you Hodson's.
