"Our family spent 10 days at your villa in March 2015 and had a fabulous time! We couldn't believe our eyes when we first entered the property - it is stunning - exactly the kind of place you imagine when you think "perfect vacation". The villa is wonderful for a large group with multiple couples/families - we each had our own large suite with plenty of privacy, yet there were many communal areas for dining, watching TV, swimming, and relaxing. This home has everything you could want - comfortable beds with extra bedding, a large fully equipped kitchen with tons of plates/glasses/cutlery, and lots of beach towels for poolside lounging. We had 8 adults, 2 children (8 and 6) and an infant (14months) in our party and this was the perfect location - easy beach access, close to the general store and restaurants, and quick access in and out of Loreto Bay. Also, kudos to the property manager, we really appreciated her accessibility and helpfulness. We couldn't have asked for a better villa for our family vacation - no one wanted to leave - thank you so much!"

"We had a great time staying at the property. The house is just as nice as it appears in the pictures.
The only two minor issues we had is we never could figure out how to use the TV (not that we tried very hard) and the gas grill, while it worked, never got hot enough."

"Our expectations were exceeded staying at this home in the friendly Loreto Bay resort. It felt like being in the beautiful home of a friend. It was incredibly comfortable for the four of us (2 mature couples), spacious and well equipped with beautiful decorations, artwork, kitchen supplies, books, comfortable furniture and beds. The views from the upper decks were lovely especially in early morning and evening. Everything is available, from a decktop barbeque to a firepit. The location is perfect for getting to the beach or to the fantastic pool facility. The bikes, while funky, were a welcome and fun activity and way to get around the area. On Saturday, the weekly arrival of seafood Louis provided us with some of the best fresh shrimp and bass we've ever had. As noted, you will need to get in line early, as we did for the best selection.
The owners were great to deal with and provided every possible resource and information to make our stay fantastic both before arriving and when we got there.
Trips to the town of Loreto require a taxi (200 pesos each way) unless you have your own vehicle. And if you want to make your own meals, you will need to shop in the town of Loreto for most items. There are a few eateries and a very small grocery in the Loreto Bay condo/village area, but that's limited. The coffee shop in the condo village is particularly good and friendly, with great baked items, espresso drinks and a fantastic brunch on Sunday morning. My wife had them make an amazing chocolate layer birthday cake for me as a surprise and I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit the four of us finished off a cake made for about 8.
This has nothing to do with the rental, but one caution: if you rent kayaks (a highly recommended activity) from the vendor on the nearby beach, make sure you ask for the ones that do not leak. Enough said.
In summary, this rental made for a great beginning to our Loreto adventure trip and we would not hesitate renting it again or recommending it to all of our friends. Look no further, this is the place you're looking for."

"First of all, the location in this spawling community is A-1. And, check-in is a breeze. The home is across the street from the hotel and its amenities, yet a two minute walk from the Founder's Pool, and five minute strut to the Wine Bar (which also serves small plates all priced at 55 pesos or the equivalent of $4.50 at this time). The Founder's Pool is immaculate, well lanscaped and sparkling. It's served by cheerful Pedro, who operates the nearby deli. He will bring you seriously amazing guac/chips and drinks at half the cost of the hotel. We were in heaven.
Admittedly we were there after the major snowbird season, but I imagine in full season, well behaved kids and floaties are fine in supervised doses at the Founder's Pool -- but the nearby hotel offers more accommodation for this, as well as other kids.
Jane's place is terrific for families, or really, for any group. The public spaces are arranged off the immaculate verdant courtyard with bubbling fountain. There are two bedrooms downstairs on the ground floor and one bedroom on the second level, with sunning deck and covered outdoor barbeque kitchen. The third level is an observation deck with views of the golf course and sea. It is truly a special place. Jane has thought of everything a week stay might require. (except if you're laundering your beachclothes, bring laundry detergent to fuel her stacked washer/dryer combo!) It was fabulous to come home with a suitcase full of clean clothes!
If you have never been to Loreto, you will need need to rely on the orientation binder Jane provides with everything from restaurants to medical emergency info, which is good and updated. But Ramon, the property manager can help with more specific queries. Email him the night before and you will have an answer in the morning.
In retrospect, I'd advise to pre-order the groceries for at least the first 24 hours, something we did not do. Yes, there's a surcharge, but I can imagine arriving with a food/drinks as a comfort. Jane can help you with that.
The place is a gem.
