"My husband and I just returned from two glorious weeks in Loreto. For one week we had extended family with us, so the total was five adults and we found this Casa to be well stocked with cooking basics (spices, vinegars, cooking utensils), a large kitchen... we all kind of cook, and a large table for us to sit around to eat and play cards. The keyless entry was a bonus with five of us coming and going. The upstairs deck was a wonderful place to enjoy our first morning coffees and our evening cocktails! The beds were comfortable and felt like home and the bathrooms were super spacious! The plants in the downstairs courtyard and the pots upstairs brought a multitude of orioles, hummingbirds and other assorted birds to surprise you as you looked up from your book or computer. But really the best part were the people! Our rooftop visits with neighbours were invaluable as far as knowing where the best restaurants were (you MUST go to La Pecazon) as well as where things were happening around the community like exercise classes and special events. Golf and tennis were highlights for us. Unfortunately, there are only two tennis courts in working order, so booking is important! There were groups to join at 9:00 each day of varying levels, but we preferred to book earlier to avoid the heat. The only downside of the whole week were the "no-see-ums" that seem to prefer female skin, so a supply of repellent is a necessity! Despite that, we fell in love with the area and are hoping to come back to Loreto again!"Guest: Laurie S. Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: April 6, 2014View listing
"Loreto is amazing in itself. This house was great. The owner was very helpful with directions and information. The house had great bedrooms. Very close to the pool and the beach and a great community. Could have had a couple more pots and pans for cooking but I've got lots of kids so you probably won't have that issue. Very close to restaurants. I can't say enough. I'm honestly booking another vacation back to Loreto soon and would stay there in a heartbeat. Had plenty of sheets, towels, even robes."Guest: Marco Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 27, 2014View listing
"We are a small group of 55+ adults, all professional and quite stressed with the frenetic pace of our daily life. We were looking for a luxurious beach side home to relax and recreate. Well, this house exceeded our desires and expectations! it was extremely well appointed, there was no amenity that was overlooked. From our own golf cart, bikes,paddle- boards and as well as a fully stocked gourmet kitchen. The house itself is very comfortable with 3 master suites all overlooking the Sea of Cortez all bedrooms have their own European type A/C units as well as large screen TV's and WI-FI throughout the house. I highly recommend this house, it most definitely allowed us to relax and enjoy it."Guest: David L. Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 16, 2014View listing
