4BR Waterfront Vacation Rental, Los Barriles, Baja, Mexico
About Fred Green
We started going to Baja over 40 years ago. We loved the area, the fishing, the many activities and the people, so much, In 2000 we build our home, Casa Verde. We designed the house, oversaw it's building, designed and furnished the interior, designed and did most planting of the lush garden that now exists. It was a labor of love. We hope you like it a much as we do. We love to share the 'Baja Feeling'. We are a couple who believe, 'The quality of life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away' (Author unknown)
Fred Green purchased this House in 2000
Why Fred Green chose Buena Vista
It is very easy to explain why we bought and them built our vacation home on the East Cape of Baja. The property is on the beautiful shores of the magnificent Sea of Cortez. It is sunny more than 300 days of the year. The fishing is some of the best in the world. It is away for the crowds, some what like Cabo was 30 years ago. And the local people are warn, friendly and the true spirit of Baja. It's also a great place to wiggle your toes in the sand. The choice was easy, it makes us feel good. We hope it does the same for you.
What makes this House unique
Besides sun (average over 330 sunny days/yr.), fun, sand, and fishing, the list is too long for this space, but it is the best place to kick back, relax and wiggle your toes in the sand

Spring Break Stay
Great Place, lots of room for a large family. Prior to arrival the owners were very helpful with recommendations for fishing guides as well as ATV rentals. We used them both and were very happy. We would highly recommend the home to anyone.
Great place to stay, wonderful hosts
Thank you Fred and Marsha for a wonderful stay over New Years!
Feb 2018 Stay
This property is a lovely beach front home that is very well kept. It sits a bit above the beach so you have to walk down some steps to get to the sand but the views are spectacular.
Kayaks are there for your use as well as snorkel gear.
We had some wind when we were there so can`t comment on the snorkeling.
The place would be great for a larger group and Fred was an outstanding host helping us with getting a cook to come in as well as great directions.
If you want a getaway that is quiet and away from it all this is the place.
I highly recommend we would stay again.
Wow! Is all we can say about Casa Verde and Rancho Leonaro. The Green Family have been very attentive to the details and furnishing of their home. All the rooms were so comfortable and clean. The beds were super comfy, lots of linens and towels. Everything you need to feel at home in Mexico!
I would highly recommend this to anyone planning to rent a home. You won't want to leave!
Thanks again to the Green Family.
Beautiful vacation home with plenty or room to bring the family
We just returned from 2 wonderful weeks at Casa Verde. We rented the entire property and brought all our kids and a grandson with us. There were 8 of us altogether and we were all very comfortable. There is plenty of room so that you are not on top of one another and even have room to roam the property. Fred & Marsha have done a great job at decorating this place in the Mexican tradition and it shows just like the pictures, in fact the pictures just don't do this house justice. The guest house was perfect for one family with a teenager. The internet worked so we could stay connected to our businesses and employees and the phone was perfect too.
We kayaked, snorkeled, fished, played in the water, walked on the beach and sat on the porch for hours on end. The evenings were full of star gazing and satellite viewings as well as lightening shows in the distance. Since we were there during the "wet" season we did get a little bit of rain and it was wonderful. The guys fished with Jen Wren and everyone caught and released billfish since it was the season.
The kitchen was stocked; the water is good so no need for bottled water. We had a caterer come in 4 nights and cook dinner; she even does the clean-up! It was such a treat to have authentic Mexican food from a local. The store by the airport is perfect before heading to the house, but there are also some smaller stores in town that carried all we needed. The caretakers are wonderful and very accommodating. Fred and Marsha were available at all times by phone.
I would recommend this property for anyone, except with very young children; there are many steps down to the beach. People with disabilities could get to the beach from the road, but not down the stairs.
We will be back again to this wonderful location and hopefully soon. Thank you Marsha & Fred, your house deserves the 5 out of 5 stars.
This vacation was one that we and our children and grandchild will never forget!
This is a wonderful property.
My family and I stayed here during Spring Break 2015, and loved every minute of it. The drive in from the highway takes about 12-15 minutes, and is along a fairly well-maintained dirt road. We did not find that a four wheel or high clearance vehicle was necessary. The home is beautiful, spacious, has every amenity you would expect, and opens to a striking view of the water. The guest house is spacious and comfortable, and two additional bedrooms in the main house have separate entry, which is great for teenage kids or separate families. We used the outdoor grill to cook fresh dorado all week. The kitchen is well done and is stocked with cleaning supplies, towels, blender, cutlery, etc. We found everything we needed to prepare most of the meals we had during the week. The back patio is just high enough over the water to see everything (we saw whales, sea lions, fish) but close enough to feel like it is part of the property. We fished with and rented ATV's from the people recommended by the owners and could not have asked for better service. The master bed is very comfortable, and waking each morning to the sound of the surf could not have been better. We spent hours exploring the beach in both directions, and felt as though we had it to ourselves most of the time. The people in Los Barriles are kind, friendly, service-oriented, and appeared to welcome guests from the U.S. The owners were very easy to deal with, provided a lot of information, and responded to all of our pre-trip inquiries. We were very happy with our experience in this beautiful, and well-maintained home.
Casa Verde is 42 miles north of the Los Cabos International Airport, equidistant between Cabo San Lucas and La Paz. Casa Verde is on the shore of the Sea of Cortez, where the desert meets the sea. There is fun & adventure for the whole family. We have world famous deep sea and inshore fishing. Catch the marlin you have always dreamt about. A few hundred yards up the beach, you can charter a boat to go for sailfish, marlin, dorado, tuna, whoo, pargo and a variety of other great sport fish. There are miles of uncrowded sandy beaches to explore. Also, there is all the swimming , snorkeling, diving and kayaking you can handle. The kids love playing in the sand and building forts drift wood forts. Hike the near by hills and desert trails, rent ATVs & go four wheeling. On the shaded porch, relax with a book & your favorite beverage. Or, while being cooled by a gentle sea breeze, take a siesta. Do as much or as little as you wish. You will take home memories that will last a life time.
