About The Owner

We are an active couple who enjoy the outdoors. Our two favourite sports are windsurfing and mountain biking. We also like to snorkel, fish, and take long walks on the beach. After an active day, we relax with a cool cerveza or a glass of wine while watching the sunset right from our deck.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose East Cape

The beautiful views and proximity to the Sea of Cortez along with the wonderful weather keeps us coming back. Direct flights to San Jose del Cabo (SJD) airport makes for a quick flight down. Our unit is situated so that a car is not necessary as we can walk to most everywhere in Los Barriles. Car rentals are available if we need to go to Costco, Walmart or Home Depot in Cabo OR we just want to sight see the beautiful area.

What makes this condo unique

If you have travelled and visited all inclusive resorts and would like to try something different this is a great idea. Cook if you like... go out if you like. Option is yours. Breakfast and coffee on your own balcony! Great way to start the day! This resort is very quiet, uncrowded and great for unwinding. What more could you want!

Perfect location, peaceful and close to all

  • 5 of 5

This place has the best of everything a large resort would have, but on a much smaller and personal scale. We loved that it was oceanfront, but still used the private pools. We could walk to all the restaurants, but used the local one when we were not feeling adventurous. All good, friendly service. Pedro was very attentive and even lent us snorkel gear. I would love to bring friends and family here.

Great Location right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

What at a great condo, it is the perfect size for two. We were there for 6 day and enjoyed every minute.

It's a great location close to restaurants in town and the resort pools and of course the beach is steps away.

Everything was just as advertised, I would definitely recommend staying.

Amazing time at Villas de Cortez

  • 5 of 5

This is our third or fourth trip to this condo and it just keeps getting better. Great location, great people on sight (Pedro) and the owner is easy to deal with. The unit is very clean and comfortable. Everything you could need is provided for you. Stay in and cook or walk a few yards to the Bay View restaurant, it's right there. We used the pool and bar next door at the Palmas de Cortez almost every day to decompress. Hector is a great bar tender and the guac and salsa from the deli are amazing. We rented a quad for the week were there for our transportation. Perfect! Don't miss El Gecko bar and restaurant north of town on the beach. The massages next door at the Palmas are not to be missed. Can't wait to get back.

Owner's Response: Wonderful to hear! Thank you for the great review. There is something sweet about Los Barriles that keeps us coming back ... the people, the food, the view, the relaxation ... we can't seem to get enough. Until next time, Heather and Denis

Lovely condo and property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 13 month old son had a wonderful time at Villa de Cortez. Our studio was perfect for the three of us and had all the amenities we needed.

We brought the pack in play for our son to sleep and there was still plenty of room in the studio to move around. Also, plenty of drawer and closet space to unpack for a weeks stay.

We got married in Los Barilles 5 years ago and stayed in the adjacent hotel. We would definitely recommend staying in the villas. The two pools and swim up bar was perfection and if you have small children, you can take advantage of the baja steps in both pools.

One note is that we had some friends and family join us on the trip. A few of them were woken up around 6am with the boats being transported to the water. Since we had a sound machine for the baby, we never heard the noise. :)

We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Your review is greatly appreciated. Thank you. We are happy that you enjoyed our studio and the resort. Fishermen are early risers in hopes to catch 'the big one' and need a boat. Its entertainment while enjoying morning coffee on the deck and taking in the beautiful view. Until your return, we wish you safe and happy travels. Heather and Denis

Most relaxing vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Los Barilles...and it won't be our last! The Villa de Cortez is THE spot in LB. It is a beautiful property and very well maintained. Everything you need is walking distance from the property; Grocery Store, restaurants, one of the best snorkeling spots, fishing and more! Such a cool, authentic Mexican fishing village. We rented a Jeep from the local Thrifty car rental (next to El Viejo - our favorite taco place!) and drove to Cabo Pulmo and beyond - what a great adventure!

The studio unit was perfect for two and had everything we needed to make our stay feel like home. Views are amazing from the second floor. Pool and beaches were virtually empty. Needless to say, we have found our new favorite vacation destination. We can't wait to return to LB and stay at the Villas!
