We checked out of the fast lane and moved to Buena Vista from Los Angeles 23 years ago and have never looked back. This place is as close to heaven as it gets.
Mark Rayor purchased this house in 2000
Wake up every morning to the gentle sound of waves lapping on the beach and a spectacular sunrise over the Sea of Cortez. This is one of the most prolific bodies of water on our planet. It offers the worlds best deep sea fishing and also hosts Cabo Pulmo Marine Park with the only living coral reef on the West Coast of North America.
This is one of the few places left in the world that is still unspoiled. Winter and spring from the front deck watch calving humpback whales breach and teach their young. In the summer sea turtle nest on the beach right in front of our home. Beach combing is always outstanding and there is a snorkeling reef right out front loaded with hoards of colorful tropical fish.
My husband and I spent five wonderful weeks in Casa Front Row. During that time we had friends and family join us. The house is all that is described, comfortably furnished, clean with a well equiped kitchen.
The three bedrooms are generously sized. The second bedroom is fully on the other side of the expansive living room so privacy was never an issue. We slept on very comforable beds with the doors open and the sound of the waves every night.
The kitchen comes complete with every gadget or utensil imaginable. It was nice to see it also included all the spices, oils, vinegars, and rudimentary baking ingredients. As we were there for an extended period we did some cooking at home. Having said that, there are a surprising number of excellent restaurants in town. My husbands favorite was either the tacos at La Frigata or the sushi at La Casita. I loved the daily fish at the hotel Pescadoro and the margaritas at El Gecko on the beach were excellent. The only place we could find with craft beer was Smokies, they have an outstanding mexican chicken soup and is a great pub with big screens and wonderful staff. They were kind enough to keep my purse safe with them one night when it was left behind ☺
We also can't forget the fabulous traditional in house dinners brought to us by Chef Leo. Best enchilldas in Barriles!! Thx Leo.
There are plenty of water toys, snorkling equipment and beach towels for use.
Mark and Jen were wonderful hosts. Although they live next door we never felt intruded upon and our privacy was well respected. If we needed to borrow something (muffin pan) needed directions (Cabo Pulmo) or recommendations (best restaurant in Los Barriles, good realtor) they were always there to help.
The location of the house is actually in Buena Vista which is a 30 minute walk along the beach or 5 minute drive from Barriles. Close enough to go for dinner and supplies but far enough away for privacy. For us, the location was perfect. Safety was never an issue and everyone in town was friendly and welcoming.
We rented a car for our stay, which we would do again as it opened up several other towns for exploration.
The drive from the airport is about 45 minutes on a good road. The drive takes you through "free range" so isn't advisable at night. However we did it at night several times without incident.
We loved our stay and would highly recomend Casa Front Row. If Los Barriles is your destination, this is an ideal place to enjoy it from
This home & location are the best. Walking in the front door you just go Wow, this will work. The sunrise views over the Sea of Cortez are unbelievable. Mark & Jen are the best & have supplied everything you could possibly need. All of our expectations were exceeded. Make sure you go fishing with Mark. His boats & equipment are 2nd to none. I don't often write reviews but this is an exceptional place & Mark & Jen have everything & I mean everything dialed-in to the Max. Do yourself a favor & book with the best! Team JenWren. You won't be disappointed!
Mark and Jennifer,
We cannot thank you enough for sharing your piece of paradise with our family. Your oceanfront house could not be more perfect! We felt like we were living a dream. My favorite spot was sitting on the balcony and enjoying the palm trees and ocean view. Your home had EVERYTHING we could possible need. We especially appreciated the TV purchase so we could hook up our equipment and have movie and popcorn nights. I also loved sleeping in the palm tree bedroom with the door open at night listening to the sound of the waves. This was our third stay in Los Barilles, and by far our best experience. Thank you for being such kind and friendly hostesses. I am in the process of reviewing my pictures and plan to make a picture book for my family. The pictures look AMAZING! We look forward to coming back. If anyone reading this is contemplating staying here, DON'T hesitate! It's worth every penny!
Words alone do not do justice to this property. Our best friends Kim and Val joined my wife Kathy and myself for a week in Baja. This three bedroom home is an amazing value. Master bedroom is huge and has separate walk-in closet and bathroom. Other two bedrooms are large as well. Kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and other for all your needs. Views from the dining room and bedrooms are breath taking.......your looking out on the gulf of California. Walk down the patio steps and across 50 feet of sand and your in the warm waters of baja. Home has two kayaks for your use. Mask and fins are also included. You want first class fishing... book owner Mark's boats for a once in a lifetime fishing experience. No gear needed.....just bring sunscreen, a hat and some food and your good! By the way, the boats(3) are right in front of Casa Front Row. You shuttle out to the boats on their inflatable and off you go. In 10 minutes your picking up bait and then another 10-20 minutes later - hookup! Tuna, wahoo, yellowtail and other baja species are waiting.
Spent 10 days here at the end of November. As the listing indicates, is right on the water, with a quiet beachfront. Flying in/out of Cabo was very simple - though plenty of "time share" hustlers to get past when clear customs. Used Cactus car rental without problems - tho any such rentals are pricey! Have made several trips to Loreto - also on the Baja - but thought this was much better for us - just see the list of amenities!
Can't say enuf about how the owner Mark cares about his visitors. We had a surprise storm that threatened power loss but Mark took steps to provide power with a generator backup that wasn't needed - just in case.
Home itself is top shelf, clean and well maintained. Large security gate ensures privacy. Great wind activities just north of town. Home is actually in Buena Vista just before entering Los Barriles - which we found very friendly and always felt safe.
Almost reluctant to review as we certainly hope to take our future vacations in Mexico here.
Thanks Mark & Jen for the use of Casa Front Row and the great time we had fishing. The house was beautiful,the beach was great, and we were made to feel right at home . Chuy and Polo were awesome on the charter, it was late in the season but we caught fish everyday including a marlin . We hope to come back soon and enjoy this beautiful home and great fishing! Thanks again Mark and Jen!
