                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: I have always loved Mexico, being partly Spanish myself, and a long time ago, went there many times with my girlfriend because I loved the geography, the culture, the people and the food. I also wanted to work with helping the children there and their families, and still hope to be able to have a foundation to be able to do that one day. I was introduced to Loreto by an individual who used to live in Mexico and loved what Loreto Bay was doing with their environmentally friendly project, and I knew it was the place for me just by looking at their introduction DVD. When my husband and I both went down there in 2004, we both fell in love with the place, because of its scenic beauty and the quiet peacefulness of the location and all of the activities available for us to enjoy in the natural habitat that was not spoiled by excessive development. After much deliberation, we found the perfect lot for our villa by the golf course, and set off on the journey of helping the finalization of the construction and furnishing of our new home away from home. We loved Loreto Bay and the fishing town of Loreto, and set out to explore the area by the Sea of Cortez and get to know our neighbours who also bought in the development. We went out on boat tours, drove on expeditions to other towns nearby, took boat rides to enjoy beaches on other islands, spent time kayaking, biking, horseback riding up in the mountains, golfing, and thoroughly loved our experiences there. In order to properly furnish our new home, we went to Guadalajara and bought Mexican custom made furniture. We met a local Mexican artist and arranged for him to produce and frame all the paintings in our home. We went to a factory and chose the vases we liked and the colors we wanted them in. Along with that, we ordered some local Mexican furniture and the electronics, housewares and linens required to make this a warm home with the amenities and the comforts of any home you might want to live in.

                      Why the Owner Chose Loreto:
                      We loved the location of Loreto Bay where the area is very pristine, the water is blue, the resort is at the base of the Sierra de la Giganta Mountain range and yet right on the Sea of Cortez. The long beach has soft white sand without rocks and is just off the Inn’s bar and pool. We can go kayaking right from the beach and explore the little estuary in the area or walk 5 minutes from our house to the clubhouse for golf. We can rent a car from the hotel or at the airport and explore the coast, or rent a boat and go fishing or sightseeing the various islands in the area. We can go swimming or snorkelling at the hotel beach which is in a very protected area or explore the other islands for swimming at other beautiful beaches. We can go hiking within walking distance. We love the design of the village of Loreto Bay, with the bright colors and designs of the various casas or custom homes and, of course, the community of people who live there part time or full time, who are so helpful and friendly. Except for the Paseo (main street), all of the landscaped streets between the various homes are not designed for cars, so it is a great community for walking locally. It is a beautiful, natural resort where you can relax, cook up a great meal, or go to a fine or casual restaurant nearby in Loreto, or enjoy the many sports available in the area. The airport and the town are both within 10 minutes by car, so it is an easy distance when coming or going to the resort, or if you are going into town for shopping, exploring, dining out, going to bars, walking along the seawall or renting a fishing boat there. There is a market every weekend where you can get fresh seafood, meat or produce, and other local products.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our casa is in the resort of Loreto Bay, in a beautiful quiet area across from an 18 hole golf course looking straight at the Sierra de la Giganta mountains but within minutes of the community pool in close proximity to all amenities. We are a few steps from the Paseo, which is the main street with any of the services you may need and across from the Paseo is the Inn ( 5 minutes from our house) where there is a pool, a bar side restaurant and a dining restaurant, the beach and the kayaks. We have a full time property manager whose office is on the Paseo, so you can get your keys from them and they are there to be of assistance if needed. We have 24 hour security. Our electronics is provided by Road9, and their offices are also on the Paseo, again if you need anything. We have wireless internet and there is internet at the hotel. We are within 10 minutes of the airport and of the quaint town of Loreto with its numerous great restaurants. We are from Canada and there are Canadians, Americans, Mexicans, and many others who all own in this resort which was built to be like a home away from home. I love the luxury and privacy and high quality of living in our Casa and yet be minutes away from the beautiful scenery, culture and uniqueness of the local area.
