About Kathryn Schnitzler

We are Canadians who love to travel to Mexico, we love the culture, the people and the laid back lifestyle. We have 5 kids, two grandkids and a very spoiled black Labrador Retriever named Mimic, and now yet another black lab pup named Cola

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.

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!

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

I just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at Kathryn & Leo's beautiful condo and the wonderful people (Pedro & Gaby) and facilities at the Villas. Although the kitchen is fully stocked, Los Barilles offers so many wonderful dining choices we didn't cook once in 12 days; love Caleb's Cafe for breakfast and El Gecko for lunch. All the comments everyone else has made are true. This is our number one happy place above all others. We hope to return next year. Thanks for everything.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the Baja and won't be our last. Las Bariles is beautiful, fun, friendly and safe. Out accommodations were excellent. The king size bed was very comfortable. No problems with the Wi-Fi. Kitchen is fully stocked with tableware, pots, pans, etc. The unit even has a wine cooler. You can use the stainless barbeque on the pool deck. The bathroom is a good size. The view from the balcony is spectacular. The sunrise over the water is not to be missed. Great grocery store within walking distance right up the road. We discovered wonderful restaurants and bars. A must is Lazy Days bar on the beach...about a 30 minute walk down the beach. Very friend regulars. We went deep sea fishing. Thanks to Pedro (building manager) for arranging this and for the use of his quad. What a great guy. If you need anything, just ask Pedro. Any questions prior to our trip was answered by the owners and during...Pedro. We definitely recommend staying here and thanks to Kathy and Leo for the use of their beautiful condo.

Family trip of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this holiday experience was outstanding! The condo is wonderful, the resort is spectacular, the view from the condo is out of this world and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We fell in love with the sunny town of Los Barilles. There is so much to do! In the morning, before our teens would wake, we would take the paddle boards right out front of the resort and paddle down to an awesome area to snorkel. Our teen boys loved the freedom of bombing up and down the beach, on the quads, exploring all the sights. Their highlight was going deep sea fishing and catching a 120lb Marlin. (Big thanks to Pedro, the condo manager, for arranging the trip and Barbequing the Marlin for us that night!!) Our family played beach volleyball right down from the resort almost everyday with the locals. Tennis was an after dinner hit once it cooled down. We also hiked, biked and explored some amazing snorkel sights. Cant wait to go back and see what other adventures await.

Long ways above average!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautiful, view is supreme! The condos were accurately described and very clean. The staff was very helpful - everything was expedited, from transportation by the Villas de Cortez to day to day queries. The town of Los Barriles is very quaint - not crowded. The restaurants off-site were wonderful and it was safe to walk anywhere - which we did at night as well. We did sightseeing on quads for 20 miles out in the desert in evey direction for 6 days and thoroughly enjoyed it! Highly recommend Smokey's Restaurant - have the catch of the day...whatever it is!!! It never rains; the temperature is a very tolerable 80ish with almost constant wind which we really enjoyed - kept us cool.
