About Karen Vaillancourt

Our home is Victoria BC. I am an artist and have some paintings in our Casa! My husband Dave is self employed. We call Loreto Bay 'our Paradise' and hope you feel that way too!!

Karen Vaillancourt purchased this house in 2008

Why Karen Vaillancourt chose Baja California Sur

We fell in in love with Loreto the minute we saw this 'Soul stirringly Beautiful' place, a place we hope to retire to, the community feel is amazing, and you feel like you are part of a huge family. The Baja is a safe and beautiful place to be, and the town of Loreto is quite simply Charming. The Golf course is in a beautiful setting, snorkelling is at your doorstep, as is kayaking and paddle boarding/

What makes this house unique

We wanted a Casa Bohemia because it afforded us more space, when you walk through the door and hear the fountain, it feels like Mexico and feels like home. We chose our location for a home because of it's proximity to EVERYTHING, we are a few minutes from the beach, the pools, the golf course, restaurants and a minute to the grocery store, the hotel and entertainment. It is nice to be in the central area, a very short walk to everything Loreto Bay has to offer. We love to be able to sit on our roof top and see the Sierra Giganta Mountains, and the golf course.


Nearest Airport
7 Kilometres
Car: not necessary

There is kayak rentals on the beach which is a 3 minute walk from our home. A must see is a boat trip to Coronado Island, a beautiful unspoiled marine park. Of course whale watching is a must. Also fishing, you can rent boats in town for a very reasonable price.

Relaxing, rejuvenating and wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 6 weeks and had a very hard time leaving! From our initial contact with the owner, Karen, to her ensuring we had received our damage deposit after our visit, she was great to work with and answered our many questions, providing lots of information. The home was well furnished with very comfortable beds and lovely linens, the kitchen had everything you needed to cook delicious meals and the whole place was incredibly clean. The colours, furnishings and accessories were lovely, showcasing Mexico's vibrancy. When we first arrived, the property manager opened the front door and we both said "Wow!". The door opens into a welcoming, calm courtyard, tranquil with plants and the sounds of the fountain. We loved the openness of the home, with windows and doors opening to the courtyard. The home was very private, especially on the main floor. The upstairs desk is huge and both sun and shade are easily found. Although it was just the two of us, it would have worked well for two couples with two master suites/ensuites and private space for all. We enjoyed Loreto Bay's beach, its coffee house, wine bar (quite a few times!), zumba classes, tennis courts, lap pool, fitness classes, yoga, and Jennifer's restaurant right across from the unit with some of the best fish tacos we've ever had...and we've had eaten many! A real community here and there is always something going on. The grounds were beautiful with tropical plants and flowers. Staff were helpful and friendly. We did have some issues with the internet being down for a few days, (not just us but the area) but both Karen and the onsite manager, Dahir, were quickly responsive. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you Karen for sharing your home.

Most enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Our villa was super we had all the items we needed for our stay pool, kitchen well-equipped,

comfortable beds & very quiet. Close to the pool was an added bonus as our grandson & daughter stayed with us.

Plus the mini-mart & restaurants were close by.

Perfect for one or two couples, or for a couple with kids.

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic visit. All of the glowing reports you will read from other reviewers were absolutely true for us, as well. That includes the gracious owner, the charming location, and the amenities in both the house and the surrounding community. As we heard from others, the owner is very responsive. What we were somewhat surprised by was that, unlike some two bedroom homes, the floor plan of this home would have allowed us to comfortably bring another couple. We generally don't do that, because we like our privacy and feel awkward about one couple having a bigger bedroom than the other. Privacy would NOT be an issue in this home, because one of the bedrooms is upstairs and has its own patio, and the downstairs bedroom is about the same size, equally nice, and has a courtyard entrance. If you brought kids, the downstairs bedroom and sofa bed would be ideal for them, while the adults escape upstairs!

The experience delighted us in other ways. Important features for us in selecting a place to stay include the comfort of the beds, aesthetic considerations, air-conditioning (not needed in December, but still...) and a very quiet environment for sleeping. This house had all four of these features and we imagine that you will also enjoy the art in every room as much as we did. Another reason we chose this house was that we already loved the community in which it is located. The community facilities are immaculately maintained, and the staff is friendly and professional.

We like to mix going out for meals with "cooking/eating in." Either option works here. If eating out, you can choose to eat in the community where the house is located, or go into the town of Loreto, where restaurants are slightly cheaper, but this requires transportation, of course. Eating at home was delightful for us because this kitchen had the best amenities of any we have stayed in, and we have rented houses in several countries and many parts of the U.S. We would love to move to Loreto and move into this house!

Great Trip & Great House

  • 5 of 5

We spent the Thanksgiving week in Loreto Bay at this house. We had a terrific vacation. The house is perfectly located - close to everything - and the property owner was terrific to work with. I would definitely recommend both to everyone.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this casa at the end of October 2016 for two weeks. The owner, Karen, was very responsive and helpful from the very first email I sent right up until after we departed. While on-site, the property manager, Dahir, was also very responsive. This casa is centrally located in Loreto Bay Village, close to both pools and the different restaurants. The casa truly felt like home - with every amenity you might want or need, including two bikes which made it easy to get around the village. We made this trip to extend our golf season - the course was easily accessible and the rates very affordable, especially if you purchased either a weekly or monthly pass. Everything was as expected and we hope to make a return trip soon.
