Our place near Los Barriles in East Cape is only 45 minutes from San Jose (SJD) airport.
Our rental rate is inclusive of Mexico's 25% VAT/income tax, which we pay to the Mexican government. You pay a cleaning fee ($50) and security deposit ($100) when you arrive, and also an electricity fee during the summer months (more below).

Our place is right on the beach and every room (living room/dining room, two bedrooms) opens onto the sea with sliding glass doors. All rooms have AC and high-speed wireless internet. Kitchen is fully equipped (including dishwasher and filtered water) -- even has some herbs! -- and has a washer/dryer. There's a coffee grinder and the stores here sell absolutely marvelous coffee beans. We have a sit-on-top kayak that is easy to take out to sea and play with the dolphins or watch the fish.

Oh no! You have to go down lots of outdoor stairs, from the parking lot to the pool, and on down to our place by the beach. If stairs are a problem for you, our place won't be fun.

Close to our place are excellent places to eat, and fresh local produce and seafood if you want to cook at home. You can stay connected with wireless internet. Or read a book off our shelf. Or lounge in the pool or go out on our kayak. We love to frolic in the sea and hills and then watch the waves of the Sea of Cortez, and enjoy life!

Our "Survival Guide" tells you where to food shop or go out to eat, where to hike, and suggests lots of fun things to do.

Our rental manager (Wolf PM) will greet you, let you in, and collect a $150 security deposit of which $50 is the cleaning fee. She will also ask you to sign a short rental agreement, which we will send you a copy of upon request.

NOTE! East Cape is very laid back. If you want night life and room service, go to Cabo. Also we are very green, and do not allow spraying for insects inside our place. Semi-rural Baja has some interesting wildlife that occasionally gets inside, such as centipedes, cucarachas, and scorpions (especially in summer when they go looking for water). They are a nuisance but not deadly. If you have any problems, you can use the Home Defense spray in the laundry closet. Or grab an old shoe! At the hotels they spray all the time, so you won't see any bugs (hey you'll get lots of pesticides). Also the sea and salt are very hard on all metals and plastic and cloth, and so the sinks might leak (we continually repair them), or the AC batteries might go bad (we tried keeping spares handy, but of course they rust too) or the pots and pans collect some rust very quickly. Hence you see "Baja repairs" galore. If this isn't your style, enjoy the Cabo hotels.

During the warm months of May through October, there is a daily energy surcharge ($10 to $20) because of the high costs of running the ACs. Wolfe PM will also collect this fee when you check in. Please run them only when in the room, and keep the temperature set in the mid-to-upper 70s (24 C), which feels pleasantly cool. And the earth will thank you!

We have a greyhound when we are staying there. So if you are super sensitive to dogs, this may not be the place for you (even though dog is not there). Lots of friendly dogs (and people) in Baja!

Come enjoy Nature and warm sunny days by the sea!!!

This place couldn't be better. It is at the edge of the ocean, it comes with enough space for 4 people, great views, and most importantly a kayak and miles of shore to explore, swim and snorkel. It is perfect for a family with kids that likes the quiet life.

Beautiful beachfront location! Interior a bit tired, but good value. Internet was problematic most of the week, but we know they are working on an alternative. Property managers were incredibly responsive.

Amazing place - better than expected. The place is right on the beach, unbelievable beach access and views. Beautiful sun rises. Location is amazing - the beaches are empty and to yourself. Snorkeling, canoeing are great. Easy to get to restaurants and grocery stores. Really nice place, people. Joy at Wolf property mgmt is great & helpful. Great for family of four - my daughters enjoyed it a lot. Evenings you can sit outside, watch the ocean, sip your favorite drinks - as the shade is perfect. Enjoyed the small village feel of Los Barriles. We would love to come back.

Spent 5 nights in Richard and Claire's condo at Mar y Sol. They provided lots of great info about the condo and the surrounding area which helped greatly with our stay. The amenities were basic but homey. Wonderful patio only a few steps from the ocean which was very calm. They provided lots of play gear (kayak, snorkel equipment etc.) which we used a lot. We would definitely come back and recommend it highly.

Hi, Clair is an economics professor at UC Berkeley (and clay artist), and Richard is a biochemist who invented a natural cure for UTI.
We love to travel and explore new places,
and we love to visit our kids and grandson in Brooklyn.
We are easy going, and go to bed on early side.
Also we jog and rollerblade all over town,
or go to museums, theater, and out for a microbrew.
Hope to meet you some day!
