About Jeff and Linda Williams

We live in Alaska and came to vacation in Loreto in 2014. We quickly fell in love with the small town and friendly atmosphere and decided to buy this property as retirement home to escape the cold and long Alaska winters.

Jeff and Linda Williams purchased this villa in 2015

Why Jeff and Linda Williams chose Baja California Sur

This property was successfully operated as a Bed and Breakfast and outdoor Wedding location for over15 years. The previous owners sold it to us with its original furnishings and authentic décor. The home is so spacious and relaxing - perfect for two couples to each have their own private areas or for a mulit-generational family. In addition to the two suites that were formerly the rooms used for the B&B, we have added a 3rd bedroom with 1 single bed and 1 queen bed. There is also 2 roll-away bed that can be set up in one of the master suites for a younger children. For young adults or older children there is a sleeping loft with 2 4" futons. We have a !4 foot swim spa that can be heated or cooled also doubles as a 10 person hot tub.

What makes this villa unique

We bought this home because of the easy walk down the beach to reach town and the authentic feel of living in town rather than a resort community. Our private upper decks make you feel like your are completely secluded, yet when you step outside of our gate you are in a friendly neighborhood (many neighbors speak English) and part of the local community. The best part is the Beach is right there.

You will definitely want to stay here!!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented other houses in Mexico and this one by far has been the best. The house has all modern amenities but still has the authentic Mexican look and feel. Leticia, the housekeeper, was very friendly and accommodating. My father and husband used Jorge to go fishing and had a great time. Jorge's English was limited, but he gave them a fair price and had newer fishing gear. They caught many fish and we had a local restaurant, Mi Loreto, cook them for us. The food was amazing!! On the ocean side of the house is a grove of trees that were full of birds. We are not official "Bird Watchers" but thoroughly enjoyed watching a family of quail. The hot/cool tub was amazing. We visited in June and spent most of the hot afternoons cooling off in the giant tub. The beds and air conditioners in the bedrooms were top notch. We all got wonderful sleep and woke up to the most beautiful sun rises. With other VRBOs we have always had a hard time getting our deposit refund, even though we have never damaged anything, but the owners of the house were honest and quick to refund our deposit. The house overall was wonderful and we will stay here again and again. Thank you so much Jeff and Linda Williams.

Wonderful place to stay in Loreto!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at this property, and plan on going back again next year. The owners live nearby and were available for help in recommending grocery stores, hikes, fishing guides and much more. We watched whales rolling and slapping their tails every day. You can easily walk in to town, and there are bikes in very good condition available as well. Loreto is a fairly quiet, laid back town but can be quite active and vibrant at times depending on different festivals and events going on.

Our new favorite place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, myself, my two sisters and one life-friend stayed here for two weeks. We have been all over Mexico and wanted to try a non-touristy place, on the water, as a change. First off, we fell in love with Loreto right off the bat, as you feel so at home here! When we got to the house Jeff greeted us, and made us feel like family! The size of the house was more than roomy for all five of us and accommodated us perfectly, three bedrooms and three bathrooms. We were all very impressed with how comfortable the beds were! (something you don't get everywhere) As the days went on I had conversations with my family about how staying here felt so at home, almost like one of our own homes. We used the kitchen a lot and found it to be well stocked. We did two fishing trips with Jorge (recommended by Jeff) and caught a lot of fish on both trips! We had fresh fish almost every night! We also gave a lot of fish to Jorge to give to families. We did a lot of snorkeling using Jorge and his family. We primarily came to the Sea of Cortes for the snorkeling, as other places we have traveled, we have had visibility or rough water issues. Not here! This house has a huge garage attached with all the accessories you will need. Kayaks, bicycles, snorkeling gear, life vests and a great fish cleaning station ( Jorge is a master at filleting, no bones in any of our fillets). Letichia the house cleaner was as sweet as she was thorough in her cleaning! Jorge's daughter, Heidi, is a Massage Therapist who came to the house and did massages for us, very relaxing!! The views from this house are great especially the sunrises over the Sea of Cortes, and at times can include horses grazing in a field. This house is an authentic but very comfortable property! Although we rented a car (because we like to be mobile) you don't need one. The Deli, the "Gringo Market" and all the restaurants that Jeff and Linda recommended, were all great!! We did a lot on this trip and found that fishing and snorkeling was half the cost of Cabo and others. We were told that Loreto would be like Cabo was years ago before overpopulated and that is so true! Jeff and Linda were at our beckon call the whole time. A simple text to them for anything got a quick response! Same with Leticia! This is truly a great place in a great town with great people and plenty of affordable things to do!! We will be back and I speak for my whole family who shared this great experience!! Thank You sooo much Jeff and Linda!!!

Amazing place for an amazing vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My family (me, my husband, my mother-in-law, and our two young children) visited Loreto for the first time and happened upon this property. I'm so glad we did! The house was ideal. Kitchen well appointed, two master suites for the grown-ups, another room for the kids, and another bathroom off the hall. The AC was a lifesaver, as the weather was very hot. The three decks were lovely, with gorgeous views of the beach. The house was clean, and kept that way by the housekeeper's daily visits. Wifi worked well, and there were lots of games and movies. And the pool. The pool was a huge boon. My kids played in it practically every day! And since it's right off the kitchen we could keep an eye on them even if we didn't feel like swimming ourselves.

The location is perfect: far enough away from town that it's quiet, but close enough that we could easily walk there and didn't need to rent a car. The house couldn't be closer to the beach- it's maybe 50 meters away. And it's also a couple of blocks from a lovely little mini market that sells a little of everything, including fresh made salsa, fruit salad, and fresh squeezed juices.

Jeff & Linda were very easy to reach and answered all our questions before we left. They had many helpful recommendations for local services, and we never went wrong when we followed them. And the housekeeper, Leti, was helpful and sweet the entire time we were there.

I'm so glad we stayed at this house. It couldn't have been better, and if we make it back to Loreto, which I hope we will, we'll definitely stay here again!!

Amazing property for a perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family visited Loreto for the first time this summer, and I'm so glad we ended up at Jeff & Linda's property. It was the perfect house! It's a truly beautiful property with three separate decks (one ground floor, one off the upstairs master suite, and one roof top). Having two master suites was great (one for my husband and me, and the other for my mother-in-law), and there was still another bedroom for the kiddos as well as a third bathroom off the hall. The kitchen was well appointed, and we made use of some snorkel gear and bikes in the garage. Everything about the house was just perfect. And the pool! The pool was a lifesaver for our sanity! Our two kids played in the pool about every day to cool off, and since it was right outside the kitchen it was convenient for all.

It's in a great location too- steps from the beach, a block away from a lovely little market, and an easy 20 minute walk to downtown. It was far enough away from the main part of Loreto that it was quiet, but close enough that we walked there most every day.

Jeff & Linda were easy to reach in the weeks leading up to our trip and had plenty of information about the area. They even helped us set up a fishing trip. And while we were there Leticia (the house keeper) was very helpful for anything we needed. It's also right down the street from a great little market run by a very sweet lady who makes delicious fresh salsa, fruit salads and juices! We went fishing with Jorge on Jeff's recommendation, and he is a great skipper.

It was an amazing vacation that I hope to repeat soon. Thank you Jeff & Linda for sharing your house with us!

A Birdwatchers paradise, you can identify several species of birds without leaving the patio. Great snorkeling and scuba areas close by, and we have personal recommendations for fish charters and tour captains. We highly recommend the 19 mile drive inland to see the small town of San Javier and its mission built in 1699. Tour books made us wary of this site because of its curvy road, but we were pleasantly surprised that it is just a slow road, not curves with a cliff below. The 19 mile trek can be easily driven in 40 minutes.
