Why Barbara Jordan chose Loreto Municipality
This property is a rare 3/4 acre compound on the beach. Very private, safe and just far enough out of town (half mile) that the stars look close enough to touch...So safe.

All the five star reviews are correct. Barbara and Al are wonderful hosts .
The property is beautiful with attention to the grounds obvious. The pool, palm trees, and beach front location make this ideal. The reason this is so unique is that the owners make it one of a kind. Al set us up with his introductory drive and hookups with excellent local guides during our stay. They keep the casita immaculate, as well as safe. Can’t say enough about them and the property.
Thought I’d add a word about dogs. We drove down with a 4y/o black lab with some concern. No worry! Barb and Al have several rescue dogs and totally get it. There are two large walled areas including the pool area for a dog to move around, plus miles of secluded beaches for leash free dog walks. Occasionally ran into locals walking their dogs, never met an unfriendly person or dog.He was a tired pup every day.
All said this was a great place and worth a 2000 mile drive.
We felt so welcomed and taken care of by both Barbara and Al. It was our first trip to Mexico and we were grateful for, their wonderful where to go suggestions, our ride in to town with Al to point out all the different restaurants and their help when my we needed medical attention. They have created a beautiful space surrounded with art and very very comfortable beds. They have thought of everything, clean water, great thermos coffee makers (coffee is important tee hee) and beautiful dishes and pots. I loved to enjoy my coffee on our back porch or by their pool. It was so nice to have a dip in the pool or the ocean to cool off on hot days. We rented kayaks and stored them by the pool so we could easily carry them down to the water front to paddle anytime we wanted.
Thank you so much Barbara and Al. We loved meeting you both and being your special guests.

We stay exclusively in VRBO properties and when we book properties with 5-star reviews we worry, and occasionally experience, expectations that exceed the actual experience. However, that was not the case with our stay at Barbara and Al's beautiful little casita. The location, landscaping, pool, sunrises, décor and the warmth of our hosts all exceeded our expectations.
What we loved about this property: leisurely 20 minute walk into town via the beach or streets; daily sunrise views from each of the bedrooms; the art/décor of the casita; the outdoor spaces; Al's initial tour of the little town and the wonderful carnitas he brought to us Sunday morning for just 150 pesos!; incredibly comfortable beds; cable TV for evening viewing; fans in every room; screens on the windows!; sitting out by the pool each morning with our coffee; supplied water; beach towels; tips for best places to eat and help arranging trip to see the whales.
What to know before you go: there are a lot of mosquitos - swarms in the morning and early evening. Bring repellent or use the extras which have been kindly left by others in a cupboard in the kitchen. Baja can be windy which can hamper planned activities. Other than a few seasonings, there isn't anything else provided. Plan to buy all condiments if you want to cook and, if you are a desperate coffee drinker like me, make sure you bring good ground coffee with you. No one takes credit cards, even the nicer restaurants and shops - make sure the first thing you do is to get pesos! And while meals are much more affordable than US standards, they aren't as cheap as other Baja towns. Dinners were about $30USD for two in the nicer restaurants (without alcohol) lunch half that. Best deal in town Ray's fish tacos!
We'll be back for sure. Thank you Barb and Al for sharing your home and love of Baja with us.
Wow this review makes everything we do for our guests worth it for sure. Thank you and we really hope you do return to our lovely little paradise.
Perfect casita for us!
My husband and I stayed in the wonderful casita the second week of March and we couldn’t have been happier to find such a perfect place. It is very tastefully decorated with beautiful bed linens that I appreciated. Yes, it was large for just the two of us, but we enjoyed having the space. As others have said - Al & Barbara are great hosts; on hand to give suggestions or help but yet very indiscreet and we felt like we had the property all to ourselves. We didn’t use the queen room but the king bed we slept in was so comfy (unusual in Mexico!). We enjoyed many of the same things other people have already mentioned (boat trip, whale watching, lunch at El Picazon) and generally just hanging out on the property. The house is about 1.5 miles down a dirt road so plan on renting a car. We had not planned that but were glad that we ended up doing so as we saw so much more than we would have and driving is super easy there. Our only regret was that the water was not warm enough for us to get in to the gorgeous pool!
Thank you for your wonderful review.....yes this winter was off scale like the rest of the World...at least 10 degrees cooler.
We hope to see you again under their nomal weather conditions and there will be pool time.
We recently visited Loreto, and couldn't be more happy with our accommodations at this property. The hosts we're extremely pleasant and were helpful in suggesting local activities.
Marvellous Loreto Beach Front Jewel
This two-bedroom casita is simply beautiful - and the pictures - lovely as they all are - actually do not do justice to the real thing. We had a wonderful one week stay here for our first visit to Loreto - our experience of this lovely town truly enhanced by being so perfectly located on the beach but so close to the town and its wide variety of restaurant and shopping opportunities. Alan and Barbara were throughout very accommodating and ready to assist in every way. Great place - highly recommended. We will be back!
What a fabulous, thoughtful review. Thank you and I hope you do make it to our slice of heaven again in the future.
On Google map scroll from the Marina 1/2 mile North on the beach and we are the 2nd to last finished home on the beach.
