About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Extra large Casa Bohemia! Two bedroom, two and one half bath home located in the vibrant seaside village of Loreto Bay, just 10 minutes south of the town of Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico.

This luxury home is built in authentic Mission style architecture and just steps away from the beach, with views of the Sierra de la Giganta mountain range. Beautifully appointed and furnished, the home features interior courtyard and rooftop terrace to view the stunning mountains and the Sea of Cortez. There are three outside living areas to enjoy and warm your soul.

A beautifully landscaped private interior courtyard is the perfect place for morning coffee. Turn on the gurgling fountain and exotic birds come for a morning dip. Enjoy a sunset or cocktails on the upper deck, complete with lounge chairs, patio set, outdoor refrigerator, sink and barbecue. Late at night, fall asleep under the stars as the ceiling fan whirls away your cares from the spectacular viewing tower. Activities are numerous, including scuba diving, kayaking, deep sea fishing, snorkeling, mountain biking, hiking, and whale watching. Surrounding amenities include pools, a tennis center, a natural preserve, and a championship-caliber golf course.

About Jon and Felicia

We love to travel and have lived in the US, UK and Europe, but this is the first place that feels comfortable, welcoming, relaxing and home!

Jon and Felicia purchased this villa in 2008

Why Jon and Felicia chose Baja California Sur

We love Loreto because it's so laid back yet has all the amenities. It's the anti-Cabo.

What makes this villa unique

The clear warm dry weather. Your blood pressure drops a few steps within an hour of arriving.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just enjoyed an amazing week in Loreto, where the desert meets the sea! A 2 hour flight from la and a world away! Loreto is everything that Cabo is not: quiet, small, authentic (no Walmart, no fast food, one stop light). But even in off season we found lovely restaurants serving yummy, inexpensive meals, and lots of friendly, helpful people.

The neighborhood where the house is located (Loreto Bay) is about 5 miles south of the town in one of the prettiest developments I have ever seen. Gorgeous adobe style villas centered around immaculately landscaped courtyards- every turn offered another charming vista.

The Villa Encantada is in the middle of it all- 2 minutes walking to either of the pools and 3 minutes to the beach, the hotel next door, the golf course and some small shops and cafes.

The house itself is beautifully decorated with all the conveniences of a 5 star hotel including WiFI and cable TV, but so much more charming. If you are considering the Loreto Bay Hotel next door, don't! This place is so much better and you have access to the hotel services anyway.

The house's two bedrooms are both very private so ideal for 2 couples and with the 2 stories there is simply a lot of space to enjoy. The master suite includes an over sized tub and an outdoor shower- my favorites!

Be sure to take a boat trip to the outlying islands (organized by Vive Loreto office in the Loreto Bay village); have a massage by Lili (also in LB Village) and have at least one meal prepared by local Chef Marisol, as recommended by owner.

Both the owner and on-site manager (us ex-pat) were wonderful to work with and made me feel "at home" from the moment I booked.

One of my best vacations ever! I am already planning my next visit!

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

Nicely appointed, very clean and comfortable. This is our third trip to Loreto Bay and would highly recommend this villa for its location to pools and restaurants – perfect for two couples. The property manager was very responsive and the owner was very easy to work with. We are already looking forward to planning our next visit to the area.

Beautiful, relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful vacation in Loreto Bay, thanks in large part to this beautiful villa as our home base. The home is lovely and clean and well-appointed, with two large master suites and amazing decks for enjoying the views. Take advantage of the concierge service to have snacks and water (and beer and tequila!) stocked in the home upon your arrival. We spent many hours on the beach, walking, paddle boarding, kayaking, and reading under the numerous palapas. The community and lap pools were also a welcome respite. We felt extremely safe in the community, with the friendly security staff always helpful when needed. We also enjoyed dinners at the restaurants in the community, and the coffee at El Corazon. Saw dolphins in the bay, and enjoyed watching the brown pelicans diving for fish every morning. And an amazing boat trip to snorkel with the sea lions. If you want to relax and enjoy the outdoors in a quiet calm place -- this is it!

Beautiful, Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, fabulous place! I would give it 6 stars if I could! The pictures and words can not describe how lovely this place is. It's quiet comfortable and relaxing. The decor is beautiful. It's convient to many restaurants. The pool is lovely and warm. There is so much to do in Loreto! We saw blue whales! It's a gorgeous area. The owners are so helpful and easy to work with. This is the best in every way! Would love to come back sometime!

Excellent home, great locatiom

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay. The house was well appointed and spacious with great indoor/outdoor living areas. Nice kitchen with everything you need. Two master suites great for a family or two couples. The community is lovely with restaurants, pools, and the beach all right there. Mostly filled with expats and other tourists. We were glad we rented a car to see the surrounding areas. We also visited the town of Loreto (10-15min drive) regularly for groceries and restaurants. The property manager was very responsive. All in all a great place to stay. We will definitely be back!

The property was terrific!

  • 5 of 5

The property was centrally located, yet quiet and secure. The staff was attentive, yet gave us privacy. The home was well appointed and provided large, comfortable spaces to either share with our friends or slip away into privacy. A lovely space that we thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend in a NY minute!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is beautiful and very well kept. We travelled with another couple and it's perfect for that situation since it has a master with ensuite on the first floor and a second one on the second floor. Gorgeous views from the two decks and even if it's a bit cool out, it's warm enough for tanning on the second floor patio. Felicia was very helpful with info on the area as well.
