Loreto Wedding and Vacation Trip
Loreto Wedding and Vacation Trip
Im speechless...when the owner told me I was going to have an amazing time, she was not kidding. From the time I reserved to check out, I have received the best from the owner as well as every person I came in contact while in Loreto. I definitely recommend it and will plan on going back. I wish I could have stayed longer. My family enjoyed it. I think this was the best vacation ever. The Villa we stayed in felt like home. We did kayaking, walking on the beach, hiking on the mountain, and taking a boat ride to Coronado Island. Its true that the Nachos at Loreto Bay Inn are delicious! We were traveling to Loreto for my nieces wedding which turned out beautiful! I told my husband we should celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary there! Waking up to the sunrise and watching the sunset is gorgeous. I will keep this Villa as my number one choice. I took many pictures to share with friends and family. Thanks to the owner for all her advice, help, and suggestions before our stay.

Nice place to stay
Nice place to stay
This villa is located in a community that is friendly and fun. The villa itself is pretty and located on the Sea of Cortez. The views of the mountains are stunning as well. I'd say it's a great place to set up base camp and venture forth from. At the end of what can be a dusty, fishy or hot (but fun) day, it's nice to have a home away from home to return to. No problems. Everything as promised. Easy to work with.

Our two week stay at this villa was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations we have had. The owner was very caring and responsive to our needs and made sure everything was just right. The villa is decorated tastefully and beautifully and it felt very much like home, whether reading, cooking fun dishes, relaxing on the upper terrace, sleeping in luxurious bedrooms or just enjoying the sound of the fountain in the inner courtyard. It is a little piece of heaven! Lots to do too, from swimming, beach combing or going to town to eat at wonderful restaurants or to meet the locales residents. Don't miss the Sunday Farmer's Market, they have wonderful fresh vegetables and fruits! Thank you Fauna for such a nice stay!

Owner response: Bobby and Jim,thank you for the great review. Makes me so happy that you got bit by the Loreto Bug. I knew you would love it down there. I read your review to my husband and he said -" Wow, thats exactly how I feel" . Two weeks isn't long enough. You were a pleasure too. And thanks for all your referrals of friends!

We had a wonderful time in Loreto! The villa was beautiful, modern, and well maintained. The beach was clean and uncrowded. There was alot for us to do: we enjoyed snorkeling, kayaking, ATV riding, and a boat trip to Isla Coronado, where the beach was like paradise. We rented our equipment right on the beach from Jorge at the rental shack. He was delightful and treated us to chocolate clams, a local delicacy which he caught fresh every day. A truly amazing treat! The arrangements were very easy to make; Fauna was super helpful and easy going. We will definitely vacation here again. Thanks!

Our family had one of our best vacations ever in this beautifully decorated home. The owner’s descriptions are spot-on, and we were delighted by the luxury of the accommodations. We especially enjoyed the terraces for barbecuing the fish we caught and for enjoying the commanding views of the village, mountains and sea. In the best area of the development, close to the beach and the amenities, this home was the perfect base for our explorations. Walking through the beautifully landscaped neighborhood was a delight, with another architectural wonder around every corner…truly a photographer’s paradise. Further afield, the town of Loreto was also visually exciting and our boys loved the boat trips we took from there out into the Sea of Cortez for fishing and eco-tourism (amazing dolphins!). The owner provided all the extra attention that made our visit perfect, including a list of more things to do in the area than were possible in just one trip. We’ll be back soon to this elegantly appointed, comfortable home!

My ATnT phone worked down there! Weather was perfect, husband caught a huge durado- we had an in house chef "Felipe" cook it for us at home. That was my high light. YUMMY and very reasonable.

If you love quiet and secluded natural beaches, then you'll love the Loreto Bay area. The villa was VERY comfortable with great furnishings. We kayaked and snorkeled right out our front door everyday except the day we went on a fabulous hike. We did not find it necessary to rent a car and found lots to do with in walking distance. The restaurants were good too- loved the tortilla soup.

We enjoyed our time by relaxing by the pool and beach. We had a few adventures, ATVing up to San Javier, snorkeling at Coronado Island, and kayaking around Loreto Bay. Th sea, the mountains, the desert--its a gorgeous location and we could have done so much more had we had time. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home-away- from-home with us! Happy 2010!!!

About the owner: We are the Tomlinsons from Lake Tahoe California. We are all skiers and enjoy getting warmed by the sun in Loreto. The kids like sharpening their Spainish skills and try only talking Spainish to the locals. We are all dive certified and go on many diving excursions. Natural beauty is what we fell in love with and the authentic local charm. 'It still feels like a secret!' Come on down and explore all the natural treasures Loreto and its heritage have to offer. Where the mountains come to swim.
Why the Owner Chose Loreto:
Living in Lake Tahoe we knew we wanted a warm beach home. The minute we got off the plane it just felt like home. The locals are heartwarming, the cuisine and margaritas authentic . The villages of Loreto Bay felt very safe and charming. The Sea of Corttez which is just a few steps away is 2 miles long and very secluded. We enjoy the Inn at Loreto bay amenities . We loved the many authentic mexican design details that went into our Villa. Large 1500 square feet with wooden french doors, brick kitchen cupolas, high ceilings, bulit in barbeque with a wooden pergola for shade, gardens and water fountains. Feels very comfortable and safe.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Enjoy the sandy beaches of the Sea of Cortez right out your door. Walk to The 4 star Inn at Loreto bay and use all amenities.. restuarants, right on the beach kayak shop, palapas for shade, 2 pools and hot tubs to choose from one with a swim up bar. Free Wifi and cable TV .
