                    My husband and I just returned from our first trip to Loreto. We are so glad we selected Barbara and Al's place---they made us feel like we were old friends coming to visit rather than paying guests. So kind and friendly and helpful, just like the reviews say; Al took us on a quick tour of the small town pointing out the places we needed to know about and called "Francisco," a panga captain, to arrange our whale watching on the Sea of Cortez for us. And yes, "Suerte," their beautiful kitty, was icing on the cake, adopting us as his beloveds for our stay. And Barbara introduced us to her new cocker spaniel pup. The apartment was absolutely lovely and comfortable; so nice to be on the waterfront and walk the beach in the evenings after our days on the water, communing with the whales and the incredible wild life here. We stroked the grays in Magdalena Bay, saw more Blue whales than you can shake a stick at, not to mention the dolphin, pelicans, frigates, blue footed boobies, osprey, herons, sharks, rays, seals, roadrunners, and . . . and . . . A wildlife lover's delight and this apartment is the perfect place from which to venture out and explore. Will definitely be back and have already recommended this casita to friends. Thanks so much for a truly magical stay, Barbara and Al. Hugs and pets to Suerte and the pups. Gary and Rebecca

                    My husband and I spent a week at Al and Barbara's on our first trip to Loreto. We can't say enough about the helpful information they gave us about the area...restaurants, shopping, day trips, etc. Al helped set up a trip for us to Coronado Island with Franscico and we had a great time. It is a must do trip in Loreto. We also loved Orlando's restaurant - we ate there 3 times in a week. Overall, we were very impressed with the casita and the location on the beach is excellent. Having the pool there for our own private use was a special treat. We also enjoyed having "Suerte" (Lucky) the cat visit us in the casita! You will definitely want to rent a car and drive around the area. It is really beautiful and the drive to San Javier is well worth it. We plan to return and will definitely consider staying with Al and Barbara again. Thanks for a great week!

                    AMAZING! This was the most relaxing, romantic, refreshing vacation we have had in 34 years of marriage. Al and Barbara have created a perfect “paradise” in the precious little town called Loreto. We fell in love with the town, the people and the beautiful Sea. The casita was better than any 4star hotel. The amenities were perfect. Not only does the casita have everything you need, it is decorated beautifully as well. The swimming pool was gorgeous! Complete privacy and perfect weather! We even managed to share in the fellowship of three road runners while we sunbathed by the pool. The first day we arrived al was our “tour guide” around this sweet little town. He made sure we knew the best places to shop and eat. For couples that enjoy each other’s company and just want to get away from the crazy rat race……This is the place to come. Before arriving Barbara asked us what we would most like to achieve while visiting Loreto? We told her “REST-RENEWAL-ROMANCE-PRIVACY….and she made sure we got exactly what we wanting! Thank you both so much for creating the perfect place for us to enjoy each other. We will return!

                    Two couples and two dogs had a wonderful week here in the beginning of june, 2013. Our hosts were better than great they were awesome and provided for our every need. nice quiet location. we were visited by a local Roadrunner every day, cooed to by resident doves, buzzed by humming birds and watched frigate birds sore over the bay. it's a wonderful place to watch birds and i added two to my life list without even trying, a lesser nighthawk came out every evening and the white- winged dove interacting with the inca doves by their pool. our host set us up with a local panga captain to take us out fishing and we came back with a beautiful Dorado which we b-b-qed on the grill on our deck. Our lovely hosts introduced us to the best local restaurants and markets where the food was both authentic and very delicious. the sunrises over the sea of Cortez were spectacular and the swimming was safe, warm and very refreshing. we spent hours by the emerald green tiled pool reading, lounging and swimming while our dogs were able to enjoying sleeping and stretching out in the shade of the numerous palm trees. lots of activities and things to see in the lovely old village, great locals and we all felt very comfortable there. our hosts were the best ever and treated us and our dogs just like family and made us feel very welcome. our stay here was a delight and we are eager to return to Baja

                    We had a fabulous time at the Loreto house. The house is absolutely gorgeous and has every amenity you could ask for. The pool is stunning and we enjoyed it every day as well as the convenience of the beach right in front where we took many beach walks, swims and kayaking. Al and Barbara were wonderful and helpful hosts and set us up with anything we requested giving their knowledge of the area and connections. I can't say enough good things about this place and I'm sure we'll be visiting again!

                    We want to add our rave review to so many others. We were two couples that shared this property and felt like we hit the jackpot in accommodations.What you see in the photos is what you get plus more. Very clean and spacious and quiet living space. Barbara and Al were so welcoming and helpful in settling us into this small and friendly town and pointing us in the right directions for sightseeing. We had a wonderful time. The highlights were whale watching in Magdalena Bay, snorkeling with the sea lions around Coronado Island and seeing 2000 porpoises feeding out in the bay. We liked walking the beach to town and their were so many great restaurants. We felt very safe here and 'non-touristy.' We would recommend this property to others to like out of the way places.

                    My spouse and I thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at Al and Barbara's home in Loreto. Barbara greeted us upon arrival and gave us a tour of the home. The rental home is very nicely furnished and equipped. Al gave us a tour of Loreto (restaurants, grocery, shopping, etc). The town is still nice and small and the locals are friendly. We found the restaurants to be quite good. Hard to beat the Pacificos and the margaritas. Al pointed us toward his favorite fishing captain and fishing was good. We'll be back. This was an excellent experience.

                    My wife and I spent 4 days here over the Christmas Holidays and really enjoyed Al and Barbara's wonderful hospitality. Upon arrival, Al went out of his way to orient us by showing us around town and pointing out the preferred places to eat, shop, visit the sights, etc. The casita was fabulous! Even better than the pictures on VRBO. It was very warm, inviting and comfortable with all the conveniences of home and a great view. It was easily the best place we stayed during our 10-day trip that included some 4-star hotels! Their friendly cat also adopted us and was an added bonus that we enjoyed! We enjoyed a wonderful time and arrived home safely, if not happily (we would love to have stayed longer but alas, one has to come back to reality and be responsible). Would highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone wanting a first-class accommodation, on the beach, with a view and warm friendly hosts. We will return!

                    My husband and son (11 yrs) stayed for a week and had an amazing time. The accomodations provided by Barbara and Al were nothing less than first class. They had many great reccomendations for us in town for food, shopping and an excellent boat captain. The boys went out twice with Francisco and caught lots of fish including my son's first marlin. We drove down and it is handy to have a car so you can sight see. We will definately be going back and I look forward to spending more time relaxing by their beautiful pool!! **We highly reccomend this property**

                    We stayed at this wonderful location for 3 weeks and felt like home. The info on the web site is Very accurate. We had two different couples visit us for a week at a time and we were all very Comfortable. We cooked most of our meals at home, but when we wanted to go out Barbara And Al were a wealth of information as to the best places to go. They are also very helpful on Places to go in the area. We felt very private and didn't feel like we were infringing on Barbara And Al's privacy. It is helpful to have a car. A Great Place! Donna and Jay
