"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."

"The six people in our party agree that Loreto Bay is a development designed and run by geniuses. The garden paths delighted us everywhere we went, and everyone was friendly. We spent hours at each of the pools and the beach. We appreciated the kayaks provided by the homeowners and we rented SUPs from Jorge near the resort, where he gave thorough instruction for our first SUP experience. My husband and I had a blast with Joel on the ATV tour, which was a highlight of this trip. This is neither our first, nor our last trip to sweet Loreto.
We had friendly, responsive service from Dawn and Chris, the property managers. Dawn greeted me at the casa when I arrived and pointed out her favorite restaurants on a list. As we settled in, we noticed a musty smell that was particularly strong in one of the bedrooms. We called and Chris came over promptly and used an ionizing air cleaning machine, which helped, but did not eliminate the odor completely. Perhaps this was a result of a hurricane prior to our arrival, but I have been in Loreto post-hurricane and other houses I know didn't have musty odors.
All rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The bedding was a bit worn, and the comforter was picked up for cleaning promptly per my request. The bathrooms had a modern feel; ours had one glass door for the shower and a second glass door for the toilet. It seems rather fussy of me, but I longed for Mexican tile surrounding the mirror and hand-painted sinks. However, towels were plush and plentiful and the shower had lovely blue tile.
The kitchen had plenty of room for group-cooking efforts, nice wood cabinetry and granite. Cookware and dish-wares were not fancy; we bought more drinking glasses and two or three more serving bowls would have been nice. Chris found a replacement blender for us, which we really appreciated.
Two of the men in our group went fishing with a local friend and they brought in a load of pargo and trigger fish, which we turned into a feast with groceries from El Pescadoro market in Loreto. The grill was a pleasure to use and the nearby benches on the upstairs patio were comfortable (although hot in the afternoon sun). The benches were particularly nice in the mornings; I sat on one most mornings with coffee and a book as the sun rose.
There was no bad seat at the viewing tower table; everyone had an eyeful of jagged Sierra mountains or ocean blue. Thank you for sharing this Loreto Bay Home."

"Stayed in the Penthouse Villa and it was perfect for us. Very quiet and comfortable. The manager was there to meet and take care of anything we ask for. Thoroughly enjoyed the owners and spent a great night out including open mic night at the local bar. Would love to stay again during the whale season and for a longer period. Loreto and Paradise Villas made this vacation unforgettable."

"It was our 3rd trip to Loreto Bay, so we were familiar and love it. This house is very big and lovely and met all our needs. There were 6 of us, so three bedrooms/bathrooms was perfect. Loved the location, central to all the activities and yet very quiet and peaceful. The furnishings are beautiful, complete, comfortable and everything you can want, including tv's in every room. Thank you so much for making your property available - we are very grateful."
