About Steve Taylor
STEVE & DANA TAYLOR VANCOUVER WASHINGTON
Steve Taylor purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Steve Taylor chose Los Barriles
WE LOVE THE CHARM OF THE EAST CAPE AND ALL THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF THE SEA OF CORTEZ AND THE SURROUNDING DESERT. THE WORLD CLASS FISHING WAS WHAT ORIGINALY BROUGHT US HERE, BUT WE HAVE SINCE FOUND SOME OF THE OTHER ATTRACTIONS AND SITES ARE EQUALLY AS RELAXING AND ENTERTAINING. WE LOVE RIDING THE QUADS ON THE BEACH OR TO THE DESERT WATERFALL TO SWIM. THE VARIETY OF THE LOCAL RESTAURANTS WITH THEIR FRESH SEAFOOD OR ORIGINAL MEXICAN DISHES IS ALWAYS A WONDERFUL DINING EXPERIENCE. THIS PLACE HAS A NICE PACE TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL AND JUST KICK BACK OR HAVE AN ADVENTURE DEPENDING ON YOUR MOOD.
What makes this Condo unique
OUR VILLA HAS GREAT ACCESS TO THE POOL AND SURF FROM RIGHT OUT THE BACK DOOR. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO TAKE THE STAIRS OR ELEVATOR EVERYTIME YOU WANT TO GO SWIMMING OR TO COOK ON THE BAR-B-QUE. THE ACCESS IS GREAT FOR KIDS. WE HAVE STAYED IN THE UPPER UNITS AND LIKED THE VIEW , BUT THE BALCANYS SEEMED VERY SMALL AND THE VIEW WORE OFF AFTER WE HAD TO HAUL OUR STUFF UP AND DOWN EVERTIME WE CAME AND WENT. WHEN A GROUND FLOOR UNIT BECAME AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE THE CHOICE WAS CLEAR. WE HAD OUR MASTER SUITE PROFESSIONALY DECORATED DOWN TO THE SMALLEST DETAIL. THEY SUPPLIED IT WITH EXPANSIVE AMMENITIES FOR US TO FEEL AT HOME DURING OUR STAYS AND NOT TO JUST THE BASIC ITEMS THAT ARE REQUIRED TO QUALIFY AS A RENTAL UNIT. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE SMALL DETAILS THAT MAKES THE DIFFERNCE. IT HAS ADVANTGES THAT WE HAVE BEEN TOLD ARE NOT FOUND IN OTHER UNITS AT THIS RESORT. PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO COMPARE THE DIFFERNCE TO ENSURE YOUR STAY IS AS PLEASURABLE AS POSSIBLE. THE GOURNET KITCHEN OFFERS AN OVEN WHICH MOST OTHER UNITS DO NOT FOR SOME REASON. THE FREE LONG DISTANCE TO THE STATES IS GREAT AS WELL AS THE WI-FI INTERNET AND PREMIUM DISH NETWORK PACKAGE.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Fantastic time at great location
Came down for some fishing and was not disappointed. This apartment is in a fantastic location with everything you could need. Nothing is more than 5 mins away and the views over the bay are amazing. Thank you both making our stay wonderful. Hope to stay here again!
Perfect place for relaxing family vacation!
This is the second time we've stayed at this property. This unit is perfect! It's a few steps outside the door to the pool and swim up bar. Right on the beach with a great view of the fishing boats coming in. The staff and Pedro the caretaker are very friendly and help with whatever you need. The owner is also very accessible by email if you have questions.
The condo is clean and has everything you need. The Villas are close to town, the main grocery store, and ATV rentals, which make it very convenient. We will definitely be back!

Great vacation location
It was a wonderful experience from beginning to end thank you so much
Issues with remodeling noise & washer dryer.
When we arrived our check-in went smoothly. However, the next morning, our first morning, at 9 AM the condo directly above us started construction work. It was unbelievably loud. I walked upstairs to see what was happening. They were demolitioning a tile bathtub area. I spoke with the property manager and he asked me when they could resume work. I said we would leave for a few hours (even though we didn’t want to get going so early- we did). He assured me that they would only work two hours. When we got back they were still working and did not finish working until after 130. Two hours later than they said they would be. I have a video of the extreme noise and loud banging it made. Then we were trying to wash clothes the night before we left. I’m not sure what happened but a breaker went out so we called the property manager. There was a miscommunication because he said he was coming by in a half hour. Evidently he thought we were going to call him back if we could not get the breaker to work. Regardless our clothes sat in wet water overnight. The breaker would not release and let the washer door open. The next morning I called, and the property manager explained the miscommunication. He cane by & got the clothes out of the washer and had the housekeeping dry them for us.They also folded them nicely. That was very nice. Other than that it was a nice place and not much activity at the resort which we enjoyed.
