Loreto house description

You could enjoy an upscale, sustainable development located on the Sea of Cortez. There are three floors of amentities to enjoy in this casa! Think luxury, relaxation, warmth! Think golf, tennis, walking, kayaking (with two boats provided) and only 20 metres from the beach!

Many ocean views are featured from the casa no matter what time of day. The main floor contains the kitchen, dining room, living room, guest bathroom as well as a bedroom with twin beds, and an ensuite shower, bath and toilet. Also on the main floor is a garden with a large fountain open to the sky and a built in grill/eating area open to the sky as well as fruit trees! Think of fresh oranges! The second garden features stunning flowers and banana, papaya, lemon trees along with a pleasant sitting area.

The second floor is your sanctuary...it contains the master bedroom with a king bed and ensuite facilities. Relax on the second floor and enjoy the large landscaped terrace with palm trees, colourful flowers and hummingbirds.

A private tower or third floor has a covered sitting area with fabulous views of the Sierra de la Giganta mountain range and the Sea of Cortez. Great location to enjoy a bottle of wine and the view! A pleasant breeze makes this area a great place to sit and enjoy day or night views!

This casa is situated within a 2 minute walking distance of the Inn at Loreto Bay and its 2 pools, a restaurant and water related amenities including kayaks, windsurfers, and snorkel gear rentals. The hotel has announced that a resort fee of $10. per day will start on Feb 1, 2012 for use of their pools, gymn, etc.

A community pool is available within Founders Neighbourhood for your use at no cost. A tennis club is also free and located in Nopolo which you can reach by bike.

The beach and the Sea of Cortez with its designation as a national marine park are only 20 metres away. A 18 hole championship golf course is interwoven through my Loreto Bay community. The Town of Loreto is about 10 minutes away by car and is a beautiful Mexican gem. It was founded in 1697 and was the capital of the Californias.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: My home is in Calgary, Alberta. I am a town planner and have been fortunate enough to work in North America, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Much of my work revolves around sustainable developments and sustainable plans for municipalities. Attractive design, architecture and building communities in a sustainable way are important to me both personally and professionally. My passions are paddling an outrigger, gardening and great friends!

                  Why the Owner Chose Loreto:
                  The three storey casa or home is situated so that you can view both the Sea of Cortez and the mountains to the west. My casa has extra garden space which I love. It also has a large viewing tower to enjoy the fabulous views, which are especially beautiful at sunset. My casa has a very large deck space for enjoying the views or sunbathing. Loreto bay is one of the most sustainable resorts in the world. My home satisfies my appreciation for a sustainable development within a friendly, safe, and vibrant community.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The adobe casa is quite private and has amazing views. It is steps to the beach. My home has 3 storeys with stunning flowers and 6 kinds of fruit trees. Hummingbirds use the fountain for bathing and as many as three at a time use one of the six feeders. Many additional amenities are available at the adjacent hotel - an 18 hole golf course, kayaks, windsurfers and snorkeling gear. 4 pools, two within the community and two within the adjacent hotel are waiting! No cars are permitted within the pedestrian streets of Loreto Bay. The stone walkways provide a never ending 'wow' with their beautiful landscaping.
