About the Property

2 bed, 2 bath, sleeps 4

Agua Viva – 132

Welcome guests to our charming 2 bedroom ensuite casa overlooking the Sea of Cortez. Our home has everything you need for a tranquil getaway to old Mexico on the baja peninsula. Located in the front row of Agua Viva in Loreto Bay, you will enjoy spectacular ocean sunrises from the second deck or tower, making it difficult to sleep in!

The home is appointed with custom Mexican furniture, travertine tile floors and granite countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms. Unique to our Nuevo Chica style home, marvel at the flight of hummingbirds in the oversized garden with a cozy breakfast nook perched at the end of the flagstone walkway. The two master suites with king beds are located on the main living level and one on the second floor. Sun bathe in quiet solitude on the second deck or read a good book in the shade of the Pergola, cooled by ocean breezes. Enjoy splendid beach sunrises from the large third story tower with a hot cup of coffee or experience a mountain sunset with your favorite glass of wine or margarita.

The Loreto Bay residential community has all the amenities you need if you prefer the solitude of home, but we trust you will want to explore and partake in the many riches this corner of the world has to offer. Play golf on the spectacular course that you will see from our casa or a game of tennis on one of the 4 courts. Expect to meet friendly neighbors from the deck and tower or just walking to the car.

Loreto is a quaint, fishing village reminiscent of “old Mexico”. It is one of the oldest Catholic missions in the Peninsula of Baja California. You will be welcomed with warm, genuine Mexican hospitality in a family friendly town where the children still wear uniforms to school. Loreto is at the base of the towering Sierra de la Giganta mountain range, and is filled with historic treasures. There is an abundance of water sport and land recreational opportunities, including fishing, sightseeing, whale watching, diving, kayaking, hiking, swimming and biking to name many. First time visitors to Loreto marvel at this Destination of Discovery. The Sea of Cortez is virtually a salt-water aquarium and was frequently referred by the late Jacques Cousteau as one of his preferred locations for marine research and discovery.

Our casa was completed in 2010 and is in brand new condition. If you have any question or need assistance, please do not hesitate to email or call us.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: I just retired after 21 years in Alaska; 16 years working for the pipeline. Prior to that I retired as a Commander in the US Coast Guard after 20 years. My wife and I have three grown children. We found our main homestead on Hayden Lake in northern Idaho. After being away from the water for too long, we are now going to enjoy the lake in the summer and the Sea of Cortez in the winter. We chose Loreto after a 2005 trip there to see the development presentation. The vision from dirt and a number on a chart came to fruition and was completed in 2010. With having two pets and three adult kids in three different states, we still haven't spent enough time there. Hence, we decided to share the opportunity for others to enjoy our casa and the Sea of Cortez when we cannot be there. We just listed our casa in February 2014.

Why Loreto Municipality, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
First and foremost, we prefer lots of sunshine and pristine waters that are teeming with sealife. We are both divers and never grow tired of surveying coral reefs. We love watching the whales and fishing for mahi-mahi! Loreto Bay also has a beautiful golf course with a couple holes along the water that rival Pebble Beach! We are also tennis players and the developer recently renovated four courts.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
If you enjoy being outdoors, whether golfing, hiking, biking, swimming, snorkeling/diving, fishing, or just reading a good book in a quiet setting, this is a great vacation destination! Loreto Bay is not overcrowded and is a walking community. The 'World's Aquarium' was the term Jacques Cousteau called the Sea of Cortez.
