Your access to the sandy beach and Sea of Cortez is a mere l00 steps away, Step through the crafted, wood front doors into an open air garden courtyard with soothing water fountain. From there, double French doors lead you to the main living room, dining room and kitchen. A wrought iron, circular staircase leads to the large outdoor roof top terrace where you will find the master bedroom. The roof top second floor deck also has patio furniture tables, chairs and loungers for relaxing or eating. The master suite's French doors open onto this expansive deck where you'll find privacy,and beautiful views of the Sierra de La Gigante Mountain range, swaying Palms in our public courtyard, ocean views and stunning sunsets. At night, you'll never see stars like this!!! The house has traditional tile flooring throughout and locally made Spanish furniture. Both master baths have local Mexican tile, dual painted sink vanities, walk-in showers, separate water closets and large soaking tubs. A tiled coffee or cocktail bar with Mexican leather bar seats connects the kitchen through large counter windows in the courtyard. Our home is decorated throughout with Mexican Wall Sculptures and surprises to please the eye. We can email you video tours of our home, community pool, golf course and Loreto Bay Inn

                      In Nopolo, we have a new community drop-in center 5 minute walk away, with Spanish lessons, yoga, free internet computer use, library and general chit chat Our neighborhood has a grocery store, wine bar, 3 outdoor pools, coffee/bakery cafe, l8th hole golf course restaurant and sandwich shop all within a 5 minute walk of our home. There are boats for hire from Loreto, to take you to the local islands for spectacular snorkeling and fishing. We also have terrific, safe snorkelling down our beach around Nopolo Rock. The town of Loreto (l5 minute drive) is full of wonderfully colorful, flavorful restaurants, bars and coffee houses and taco stands Local artisans share their wares in a tree-covered lane beside one of the oldest churches in Baja. Loreto town is authentically Mexican; quaint, yet manages to service visitors with grace and charm.

                       

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About: This casa is owned by several partners who live in Victoria, B.C. Two of the owners hang out in Loreto as much as possible.... Sally and Stu love to play, whether it's spoons and fiddle or incorporating humour and wellness into their work; Stu is a professional clown and Sal is a transformational coach and workshop leader. They love kayaking, snorkelling, swimming and beaching in Loreto Bay and dinner/music playing partying with all the friends they have met in this wonderful community. Their home has become a wonderful re-union spot for their kids, Ben (MTV series star of The Buried Life) and Emma-Professional Communications graduate. Twice they've driven 3000 miles to Loreto from Victoria with their kids and kayaks!

                      Why Loreto:
                      We loved the sustainable vision of our neighbourhood-pedestrian friendly, peaceful and devoid of highrise tourism. The option of connecting with our wonderful neighbours or maintaining ones privacy is a big bonus as well as the ocean and hiking recreational opportunities. Being so close to the sea for morning swims or kayaking and snorkelling, or walks around the golf course, the varied bird life and mountain hikes within such a peaceful setting is a delight.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Happy hour watching the sunsets from our expansive rooftop deck. The short stumble to the beach for early morning wake ups. The huge variety of tropical fish to see around Nopolo Rock at the end of our beach. Kayaking along the shores or pelican filled estuaries through the golf course, star gazing, happy hour sunsets from the rooftop. Stu's capuccino kitchen bar-open in the morning to neighbours perched on the mexican bar chairs.
