About Ann Brown

Our family packed up and moved from California to Loreto in 2007. We enrolled the kids in the local public school where they became fluent in Spanish. They spent two years in school there and made lots of good friends. We loved engaging with the locals and learning the customs of the Loretanos. We lived in Loreto for four years and now visit whenever possible. In the meantime we rent our villa so others can enjoy the tranquil environment and beautiful surroundings.

Ann Brown purchased this villa in 2007

Why Ann Brown chose Baja California Sur

This home, compared to the other homes we could have purchased, gave us far more living space due to the large living room and second floor deck. We added a pergola to cover the majority of the deck so we could use it even on the hottest days of the year. The third floor deck gives us views of the Sea of Cortez and a breeze to escape the heat of the summer.

What makes this villa unique

The location of this home is perfect for us because it's close (only 4 houses away) to the community pool but far enough away so we don't hear the noise when it gets rowdy there. We are also steps away from the Inn of Loreto, which makes it convenient to their restaurants and beach where both kayaks and bikes can be rented.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Ann,

Our trip was great, we had a very relaxing time and really enjoyed ourselves. The villa was perfect for us and everything was so convenient. We ate at the hotel, the wine shop and the coffee shop, exchanged books at the community center and shopped at the boutique for gifts for the grandchildren.

We spent a lot of time in the pool which was close by and found your property manager to be so friendly and helpful. We loved the birds, the views and I was really impressed with the landscaping and the care the gardeners took. Our only problem was that I am not a good "shuffler" and got stung twice by the stingrays. But I was given expert help by Security officers, one was a paramedic, and we were very impressed with their kindness and speed. This made my husband really confident of the safety of the area, as there was a helpful person on hand at all times.

We would like to reschedule for 2 weeks next May if that is possible, though I am trying to get my husband to agree to 3 weeks.

Once again, thanks.

Owner's Response: Thanks Lesley. So glad to hear that you enjoyed our house and this part of Baja. Contrary to many news reports about Mexico, Loreto and especially Loreto Bay are safe locations for travelers. It's also good to know your daughter enjoyed the children's books we have at the house for families. Come back soon!

ENCHANTING MAGICAL VILLA!!! And the warm exchanges with Ann made it all so much easier.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were so completely in love with this wonderful home. There were so many little details that showed the love and care of Ann Brown and her family. They knew how to show off the beauty and charm of Loreto. We arrived with bright sun greeting us. And when we would enter the cool darkened tile entry hall that led to the sparkling lights and bubbling fountain and soft comfortable seating we were ensconced by the magic and found it hard to leave. Art pieces surrounded us and inspired us. I have so many beautiful images and memories and I am happy to hear my husband say" let's plan our trip for next year".

Our mornings were delightful as we climbed to the tower to meditate among the sounds of many songbirds. We later learned to appreciate the many birds even more when we took a marathon 4 hour birdwalk with an experienced naturalist.

Every room, patio, hallway was worthy of photographs and yet so comfortable. We didn't cook much in the kitchen; just reheating dishes from the many restaurants and making our morning coffee, but it was delightful to look at the beautiful pottery and again I am a sucker for sparkly lights. We enjoyed sitting around the table in the cozy nook as we wrote in our journals.

At night we would lay under the starry night and be surrounded by the stars and planets before a restful nights sleep. The weather was perfect! How did that happen? We thought we had perfect weather in California. But this was so gorgeous with the views of the Sierras de Gigantes coming down to the bluest Sea of Cortez.

Whenever we walked along the calles we learned to breathe in deeply the perfume of the flowering orange trees. The surrounding plantings, the golf course, the lagoons leading to the bay, all the places to explore are calling us back to explore further. I thoroughly enjoyed walking and finding a quiet place to do some yoga while my husband found running paths and played golf. We were outdoors so much that we are going to try to be outdoors more here at our home. It felt like such a humane pace that was a healing balm. No stress. Just plenty of relaxation, rest, and play. Perfect vacation!

Very many thank you's to Ann for being such a gracious hostess even though we have never met; I feel we have through the energy you have created in you home. It is filled with Light,

Harmony, and Beauty!

Till we return,

Tara and Ralph Navarro

Owner's Response: Thank you Dino and Ralph! It was a pleasure to have you stay at our home. I'm so glad you thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of it! Please do return whenever you can. We'd love to have you stay with us again. It sounds like you brought a touch of the Loreto-vibe back to California with you. Like you, I feel as though we met in person and have become true friends. So glad you are part of the family we've welcomed to you say, it's a magical place!

Faded and a bit worn.

  • 3 of 5

The setting was quiet and convenient to the community pool and beach. However the Inadequate glassware, chipped dishes, and unreliable internet. affected our enjoyment. The uncomfortable deck chairs made using the upper deck awkward for more than two people and the banquet seating in kitchen did not work for adults.

A little attention to these details would really make it ok.

Owner's Response: Hi Peggy, Thanks for your feedback. As you know, at your prompting we replaced the dinnerware, bought new glassware and added lounge chairs to the deck. Glad you brought those to our attention. You'd appreciate the upgrades we've made since you left two weeks ago. Unfortunately the internet is spotty at times during high season for all Loreto Bay homes since so many visitors use it to stream movies. I'm grateful the Community Center, cafes and hotel across the street offer good options. It's too bad you were only able to spend 4 short days at our house. Please let us know when you want to return.

December getaway.

  • 5 of 5

As before this was a relaxing and enjoyable two weeks.We were able to recharge and prepare for the coming winter in a delightful way.Anns house has a view of the mountains and golf course that is hard to beat, close to the pool, hotel, and beach.The security is very reassuring and shopkeepers helpfull and informative.The house is comfortable and well appointed, it was hard to leave the lounging area because of the view.We saw the full moon from the tower, the stars were amazing and there were so many birds coming to the flowers and on the lagoon there was always something to admire.

Owner's Response: Thanks Patricia! I'm so glad you once again enjoyed your visit to Loreto Bay and our house. You're right, the house location and views of the mountains and golf course from the second floor deck and the Sea of Cortez from the third floor tower are spectacular. And what a gift to have a full moon to illuminate those views while you were there! Let us know when you want to return.

Another Perfect Vacation in Loreto Bay!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second trip and month's stay in Ann & Doug's Casa in the Villages of Loreto Bay! It was as enjoyable as our first trip last May. Their home has all the amenities to make ones stay as comfortable as possible. The location is convenient to the community pool, the resort & beach plus walking distance to restaurants within the Villages .When we did not grill at night on one of the 3 patio areas we went into town and enjoyed several of the local restaurants,( Mita Gourmet on the plaza, the Mediterraneo on the Malecon, the Giggling Dolphin and a special treat at la picazon

3 miles from town with stunning views & great food. We are already looking forward to our next trip! Thanks Ann & Doug for your hospitality!
