Snorkeling and swimming is great straight out from this property. We have created a sandy strip so you don't have to walk across any rocks.

Our family rented this beautiful house in June and highly recommend it. It is even prettier than in the pictures - the landscaping blooming in the back yard takes your breath away when you first see it. The house is just a short way out of Los Barriles, so easy to pop into town for supplies, but just far enough out that you do not get the crowds and noise like at the hotel Palmas de Cortez or Buenavista resort area. Sitting out on the patio, under the palapas, or in the pool and hearing nothing but the ocean is pure heaven. The house is well equipped and very comfortable with A/C units throughout the house. We will be back!
The location is perfect. The Casa is comfortable and roomy. The gardens and pool are spectacular. Can’t wait to come back!
We spent two weeks here and didn’t want to leave. My 4 year old grandson pleaded for “just ten more days “. He swam in the pool for hours. The house and grounds are beautiful and the location on the beach is amazing. It is quiet and private but close enough to hop in the “buggy “ and be in town in just minutes. We had Norma the Cook come three nights and prepare dinners that were beyond delicious. We have been to Los Barriles many times but this is our new favorite place. John Paulson and Josefina were a pleasure to work with.
This is our second stay at the Paulson Casa and plan to come here again next year. Fantastic house, beautiful gardens and pool right on the beach. House has all the towels and toys and dinnerware that you will need. John is very responsive and helps you coordinate shuttle, fishing and chef Norma who comes to the house and makes fabulous food. The buggy is all you need for getting around. Great snorkeling right out front. We live this place and will be back again next year!
It was great! FYI our electricity went out about 3 hours or so but I was able to find candles, no big deal. some downfalls, beach in front of the house is very rocky, 2 hard mattress's. Another ice chest would be great! I would definitely rent again.
Great location. This house has everything we wanted.
Easy to book. Great communication. Plenty of room for 8 adults. Location is very private.
Staying at Casa de Paulson was a real treat for our group, 2 families of 4. It was amazing to be able to swim in the pool and swim/snorkel at the beach without splitting up. There are two sandy entrances to the water, one just to the left of the house and one just to the right - you just have to look. The snorkeling from the house is pretty decent, plus this place is only 30 min to punto pescadero paradiso which is an excellent shell and snorkel beach (just make sure you go on a low wind day). We spent 4 of our days just hanging at the house and the other 3 days adventuring (beach mentioned above, Cabo Pulmo, and then a day driving to Todos Santos and Cabo). At the house, the gardens are gorgeous; home to lots of lizards and geckos if you look. The kids loved that. Lots of pool toys. Grill worked well. Kitchen well equipped and boy did we give that blender a workout! One tip is that the 4th bed (upstairs, outside a bedroom) we picked up and put in the jungle room on the floor. We put all 4 kids in there on 2 queens. This allowed for adults to stay up late and not wake the kids and allowed for all kids to sleep in a room with AC. That area at the top of the stairs was the only area that the AC didn’t really reach(not a problem once the mattress was moved). Thanks for a great stay!
Casa Paulson is a great house, right on the beach and just a few miles from Los Barriles. But here are lots of places like that, What makes Casa Paulson exceptional is the gardens. We've been coming to LB for over 20 years, renting homes all over the East Cape, and we've never seen gardens like this. One could easily be forgiven for thinking they were on a tropical island, not Baja, when you walk through the grounds of Casa Paulson. Bedrooms and baths were great, kitchen is good, but it takes some adjusting to work with no shelves or upper cabinets. Spa and pool worked like a charm. I would make one suggestion: The upstairs balconies have fantastic views of the sunrise of the Sea of Cortez on one side, and sunset over the mountains on the other, but there is no furniture on them at all. It would be great if there were a few chairs on those balconies to take advantage of the view. All the people associated with John's house are friendly and speak English, and Alphonso made numerous trips back and forth to the airport for us - on time every time. All in all, a great stay and we'd highly recommend Casa Paulson.
These house has great character, art work, and a dazzling garden with beautiful floral . Comfortable beds, Big rooms, with multiple views in all directions. The kitchen is very well equipped. The furniture in living room quite comfortable. Close enough to town for restaurants, night life, groceries, rentals
