About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

From Casa Allen located in the founder's neighborhood of Loreto Bay you have views of the Sierra de Gigante Mountains, the golf course or the tranquil Sea of Cortez. This custom home sits on the 9th hole of Loreto Bay’s newly renovated golf course. The house is a short walk to the beach, about 25 yards.

This is a perfect house for 2 families, sleeping up to 12. The great room accommodates 12 seats at the dining table. Casa Allen has 4 ½ bedrooms and 4 ½ bathrooms. Two master bedrooms with king size beds and 2 large bedrooms each with 2 double beds. There is also an additional small bedroom with a single bed.

Casa Allen is unique in Loreto Bay because it is the only house with the living space on the second floor. We wanted to take advantage of the views and this house has mountains, golf greens, and sunshine views from the kitchen, dining and living room. The casa is designed with traditional Mexican charm from the colonial era-adobe walls, Saltillo floors, Talavera tiles, copper lights, and wood windows framed with Cantera stone.

The entire house is surrounded by a tall wall and when entering this private space you have beautiful landscaping. The first courtyard has a Talavera fountain, the next has the swimming pool area with a terrace and outdoor kitchen. The back garden has an outdoor shower. This home has the largest amount of green space in this development.

All bedrooms are on the first floor and are entered through French doors off of the gardens.

The second floor has 2000 square feet of outdoor patios, perfect for entertaining or just lounging and enjoying the views.

This house is one of the first 5 completed custom homes in the renowned LB development. The development is known for its environmentally friendly construction. The ocean here is a protected marine preserve and the sea life thrives. Fishing is outstanding for you and off limits to commercial companies.

About The Owner

We live in Portland Oregon.

However when the kids were in elementary school, 8 years ago we lived in Loreto for a year. We couldn’t have chosen a better place to be. The Mexicans took us in and we had a year of fun in the sun. In a small town friends are made quickly and kids of all ages play together. We were with the other Mexican families everyday playing in the ocean, hiking, BBQ on the beach, or just hanging out in the plaza. Loreto is so safe I never worried about my small kids walking around town, they had more independence there than they did in the states. Loreto is non-touristy with a very casual atmosphere. Loreto Bay homes have beautiful architecture but if you are looking for fancy restaurants, pools, hotels and shopping you won’t find that in Loreto.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Loreto Municipality

Our house has more open space around it. Other homes feel like they are on top of each other with their neighbors looking in their windows. We also designed this house to accommodate 2 families. There are 2 master bdrms with King beds, two oversized bdrms with 2 double beds in each room. 4 bdrms with 4 private bathrooms. One small bedroom with a single bed.

What makes this house unique

Our house is the only LB house with the living space upstairs. We are from the NW and light/views are paramount to me. I designed the house to have our dark spaces where we sleep and the social spaces with views.

Gorgeous house! Great beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We love this rental house! House is very beautiful with lots of open space and common areas. We felt like we were living in a real Mexican hacienda! Both the community lap pool and the sea of Cortez are very close by and within easy walking distance. The Loreto Bay Area is beautiful. Good inexpensive restaurants. We will be back for sure and plan on buying a casa there when we retire!

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end this was a great stay!

The House is fully furnished with everything you would ever need - from extensive cooking equipment to tons of beach gear and water sports.

The pool is fabulous, we used it more than we even expected that we would. Especially great this time of year and through the summer. I could understand how it might be cool in the winter as it doesn’t get a lot of sun. Views from the property are amazing, 2nd Floor has fantastic views of the golf course and the mountain range, and the third-floor has panoramic views of that and the ocean as well. We were highly impressed by Chris and Dawn, along with the owner of the property. They were all very responsive and helpful, and we will definitely be returning!

The house is beautiful, spacious, private, safe.

  • 5 of 5

Walking through the large wooden doors of Sara’s home you enter the beautiful courtyard and a safe, quiet, private world. Shady trees, magenta bougainvillea, and the cooling sound of water from the fountain greet you.

This gracious house has a colonial feel in its lay out and ambiance, it is immaculately clean, and comfortable. Each room is uniquely decorated with vintage Mexican furniture and tasteful art, many surprising details delight the eye and soul. Beautiful traditional Mexican craftsmanship in wood and tile work are found through out the house which gives it an authentic older atmosphere. The home is surprisingly intimate for its large size due to the wonderful design, all the rooms open to breezeways or courtyards offering fresh air and the sound of birds and the fountain.

The sweeping unobstructed views of the mountains to the west change through out the day and the sunsets viewed from the large patio and living – dinning area are breathtaking . This house has been designed to spend quality time and relax in. Certainly there is so much to do and see in the Loreto area, but coming home to this beautiful house offers a uniquely special and enjoyable experience that you will appreciate even after you have left.

Sarah is a gracious and wonderful hostess and dedicated to creating the best possible experience for her guest!

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was perfect for our family vacation. It was very clean and had plenty of space for everyone ( there was 7 of us) I’d highly recommend ordering the tomale dinner as it was fantastic. We really liked the villas location near the beach. My daughter enjoyed using the paddle board!

Perfect location for a perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Well-appointed and well-maintained villa just steps from the beach. Beautiful sunset views over the mountains. The villa was private, spacious, offering lots of corners for private relaxation as well as family gatherings. Great private pool for cooling off in the afternoon with a tropical drink. The Inn, a short stroll away, had a great menu and swim-up bar. The golf community had several great restaurants. The ocean was calm and perfect for paddle-boarding and kayaking. Loreto was a charming town with outfitters for deep-sea fishing, snorkeling trips to deserted islands, and hiking - whatever outdoor activities you might want. Great restaurants, good grocery stores, wonderful people. The owner of the property and the manager could not have been nicer or more responsive.
