About this listing

Our home is colorful but very functional. Air conditioners in every room and each room appointed with an authentic Mexican decor. The pool and spa are central to the yard but over 100 palm trees and several gardens balance the property.

The space

Located just 2.5 miles north of Los Barriles, our casa and tropical gardens must be seen to be believed! Nearly 100 palm trees dot the landscape encircling the many gardens on the property. Sitting in the living room, you can see the beautiful Sea of Cortez and your very own beach. Of course, there’s always the large pool and Jacuzzi spa available if you choose to stay “at home.”

Feel free to meander through our property on the many different walkways. Beautiful granite boulders are strategically placed so you can just talk or look at the sea. The gardens are as varied as you can imagine. If you're fortunate to be here in the spring, you'll smell the fragrance of the many plumeria trees we have. We have a fire pit just inside the front wall--and it's used often. The bougainvillea labyrinth is beautiful and a most peaceful place to walk. Or, you can just sit under the small palapa near the master bedroom and look at the Sea of Cortez.

And there are toys—kayaks, standup paddleboards, snorkel gear and beach umbrellas should you decide to spend some time by the Sea. Additionally, we have a couple mountain bikes that are no strangers to the beautiful trails in the area.

So much of our Casa living revolves around the outside, we often forget to talk about the rest of the house. There are three bedrooms, each with its own shower and full vanity. Two of the rooms each have a king-size bed, the other has two queens. So sleeping 8 is pretty simple. Our Master Bedroom has satellite tv; the others are equipped with DVD players and flat screen tvs.

Also, in addition to satellite, Netflix and Blu-Ray, our Media Room has three full size twin-beds handling sleeping accommodations for another 3. By the way, this room gives a whole new meaning to the term 'TV Room.' The screen is a 10-foot gem with an HD-resolution projection of DISH satellite programming, Blu-Ray discs or movies via a Mac-Mini. Full description is provided for its operation. (We're senior citizens so the language is simple and the operation's a cinch!) This room has couches in addition to the twin beds, and a table that can be used to serve meals to all.

Then, there’s the Chapel for those who want to get away for a few minutes, to meditate or to have a massage. In fact, we have our own massage table so that Nancy (our local message therapist) can come out for relaxing massages. Our casa has been designed to satisfy the body and soothe the soul, so you don't have to do anything in the Chapel but sit. Many of our guests use the Chapel for meditation or for private Yoga practice.

The Mosaic Patio between the bedroom quarters and the kitchen/TV/living areas is pretty incredible! Covered with rustic Palo de Arco, this room has a beautiful brick fireplace that will allow you to entertain many of your friends and family with potlucks and BBQ’s. Our BBQ grill is on the pool deck by the large bougainvillea along with necessary charcoal and tools.

Across the Mosaic Patio is the Kitchen and next to it is the stairway to the roof. This will provide you with a complete panorama view of the mountains and Sea. You can begin the day with a view of the sunrise and end it with a sunset over the mountains.

The kitchen is well-appointed to serve snacks or gourmet meals. The juicer, food processor and blender are plugged in and ready to go. We have two refrigerators for you to store supplies for your crew.

The kitchen also has a 32' flat screen mounted on the wall, enabling it to be rotated or tilted so that all sitting in the living room, or the kitchen can see it. There's also an APPLE-TV in the kitchen as there is in the Master Bedroom.

The office is adjacent to the kitchen and houses modem, wifi extender and a variety of electronic gear. In addition, our printer-copier is located there and is for your use. Extra cartridges are on the supply shelf against the west wall. If you prefer, you can plug your computer into one of the Ethernet cables in every room. Additionally, we have a VONAGE telephone system allowing you to call anyplace in the US or Canada free of charge. Likewise, you can receive calls from anyone in the States or Canada.

The office also has a bathroom and shower that we often use as a changing room for the pool. There's a bodega behind the office with beach towels, wine, and food supplies. Feel free to use all the towels, drink the wine and eat any of the food you find there.

We've been in the area for over 20 years and can give you first-hand advice on where to get a boat for fishing, ATVs for exploring and even a chef who can provide you with a complete Mexican meal should you so desire. We've got favorite beaches, bike trails, taquerias, even fancier restaurants in the area. For snorkeling, all you need to do is open the front gate and walk to the water. We've got some of the best snorkeling in the Sea.

We had a fabulous stay with 6 family members. Plenty of room..Loved all the folkart, pool time with dragonflies and birds, great snorkeling and of course beautiful sunrises. Very comfortable home off the beaten track which we loved. Ed and Jen were great hosts and are easy to reach if needed. Highly recommend!

Our decision to book with Ed and Jennifer was based on their home being in close proximity to the village, large enough to accomodate 11 persons and we needed a flexible cancellation policy. We met our hosts prior to our stay as they were generous in taking time to give us a tour of their home and grounds and it was time well spent. Their home on the beach is beautiful and comfortable at the same time and there was nothing we lacked. The outdoor living area is ideal for families, the pool and spa perfect for all ages, and the beach a stones throw from the yard. Ed and Jennifer gave us access to their kayaks, paddle boards and snorkeling gear which provided many hours of relaxing fun. We highly recommend Casa de Sol Espirial for the perfect family vacation!

This is a great place right on the water. Communication with Ed couldn't have been better. His suggestions were right on! There were seven of us, all adults and had plenty of room. The selections of movies were a lot of fun. An amazing collection of older movies! You do need a car but it was close to town so we did eat out often. Good town for food. For a great time, rent this place.

I have stayed at numerous home rentals before and this was, hands down, the best one ever! Living in Ed & Jen's home was truly living in someone else's home, with all the love in decor, thought for the space, and accoutrements one could ever need. The list of things we loved is long, so I will only mention a few- the outside kitchen/hang out space was phenomenal, spacious and a dreamy respite out of the sun while with a gorgeous beach view and easy kitchen access. The pool was beautiful in design and with the view looking out to the beach. The movie room was out of this world - gigantic, well stocked with amazing movies and games, and with a multitude of spaces from which to enjoy the flicks. The beach it self is incredible with the azure blue waters and all the equipment one could need to explore the ocean right outside. Ed was an amazing host, ensuring everything we could possibly need or ask questions about was addressed. Altogether, it was an incredible and way too short week for us, our friends and our 4 kiddos. I will for sure be back!

Ed and Jen were great hosts and communicated everything we needed to know to find the house, check-in, and enjoy their beautiful home. It was a perfect place to relax and refresh both body and soul. It was also kid friendly and our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves...snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, spear fishing, swimming in the pool, enjoying the gardens, and the incredible movie room...all worth it! We would hands-down recommend this place to anybody who is looking for a private and beautiful location to rest and relax with your family, friends, or loved ones.

We've lived in the Los Barriles-Buena Vista area for over 25 years. We've seen a couple generations grow up and we've become assimilated into the local culture. Los Barriles is a small village of about 5,000 people and our home is just north of town. We've constantly remodeled and upgraded so that the property is now truly a resort with all the privacy you need and value. We love the area and are sure you will as well.
