Loreto Bay is the vision of dedicated environmentalists who wished to create a sustainable community. It is modeled after European hill towns with stunning traditional adobe architecture, charming walkways to the sea, and lovely gardens. But there's more to see, so we include our Ford Explorer: for exploring.
Our location in the community is a treasure. I think it could not be better: so quiet, yet just a few feet from our charming coffee shop, a stone's throw to the community center and the 'greengrocer', a short walk to our new wine bar. Our casita is unique. We wanted guests to immediately recognize that they were in a special place, not a standard condo or hotel room. We chose exotic, charming, one-of-a-kind pieces as well as the finest beds and appliances. Our high quality furnishings have caused some to wonder if we were wise to rent to the public, but we have been rewarded with respect from all of our guests. The kitchen is equipped as yours might be at home. From stemware to Cuisinart cookware, you will be more than satisfied. The upstairs/downstairs bedrooms with individual baths provide privacy for two couples. Both bedrooms have televisions. The upstairs deck has a lovely mountain view. Although the water view is quite limited, the beach is only a two minute walk away. The very good golf course is 3 minutes walk away.

About the owner: I am a retired English teacher; my late husband a retired US Navy officer. We live in San Diego, but only came to love Baja when we discovered Loreto. This charming Mexican pueblo (12 minutes drive from our casita) provides very good international restaurants, a marina for sports fishing,cute shops, and an impressive malecon. The people are the warmest we have met anywhere. Our grown children were thrilled by our choice and enjoy kayaking, snorkeling, and just hanging at the pools. The fishing is fabulous, but we are not really fisherman. Instead, we rent various small boats to explore the nearby islands. They are amazing with their untouched beauty.
Why the Owner Chose Loreto: We liked that the airport was a 10 minute drive from the house. We continue to be amazed by the sunsets on the mountains. As tennis players, we were impressed by the ambitious John McEnroe tennis center just a few minutes away. Although the courts are not yet world class, we expect they soon will be. The attractive Inn, associated with the development, adds availability of a gym, restaurants, pools, tour guides and beach services.These amenities are yours to enjoy while renting our home.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Great golf course one can walk to with special rates for renters. No cars ever drive by the homes. They are parked on the street. People are always walking by, as this is a walking community.Everything is close. So you get to know your neighbors. We like that. So far from any urban intrusion, the night sky is amazing. This is the most relaxing area we have ever visited. It is a place for renewal.
