Why Kathryn Schnitzler chose East Cape

Non stop flights from Western Canada makes for quick hassle free trips to escape the cold.

What makes this studio unique

We enjoy sipping a frosty Margarita on the balcony for happy hour, watching the boats return from a day of fishing, and displaying the color coded flags of their catches of the day.

Perfect condo in a gorgeous town

  • 5 of 5

I have used VRBO since 2002 and would like to state that this was the best equipped place I have ever stayed, and the most comfortable bed. We did not cook int he kitchenette, but it was surprisingly well equipped for it. The place has an airy open feel with high ceilings. The bathtub is big enough for two. Never used the AC as the draft through the place was so nice. Very nice beach chairs and umbrella for use, plus the pool has very comfy seating areas.

This was such a great place to have as a base to explore the city. We found the breakfasts to be best at La Playa a mile up the beach. No need for a car here. Take the shuttle van from the airport directly here and spend your money on an ATV rental instead of a rental car.

The property manager was always around and very friendly.

We were visited by two 40+ foot whales up close, they were swimming just 75 yards off the beach, a fantastic sight from the balcony.

Thanks for our visit, we hope to be back.

WE had a great stay at Leo & Kathryns "casa on la playa" The pools are beautiful although not heated which is normal in Mexico... Beautiful vistas of the Sea of Cortez.

A great place to stay for a romantic and adventurous stay, we snorkeled at Punta Pescadero, fished offshore, drove the "Loop" to La Paz, Todos Santos, Cabo and beyond, great place very safe, great owners to deal with.

Pedro the building caretaker is a Gem a really Bueno Amigo... Thanks Leo & Kathryn!

Immaculate and well-appointed. Everything works. Everything is high quality and well maintained. The owners are a breeze to work with. It could not have been a more relaxing and enjoyable experience. We'll be back for sure.

I just realised that I never completed a review of the experience we had renting this lovely condo earlier this year.

The owners, Kathryn and Leo, were great to deal with. Pedro and Gaby were very welcoming and helpful. We really appreciated the well stocked kitchen equipment and the amount of storage space that was available for our use. The king size bed was extremely comfortable. The views are fantastic and the pool area in the front had some relaxing loungers. Los Barriles is a very friendly community. Our condo was a very close and easy walk to grocery stores and some excellent restaurants. We really enjoyed the music in one particular restaurant. This was a great stay; we intend to be back!
