One Bedroom Luxury Casita w/lap pool on the Beach

Property description

Intimate Hideaway on the Beach

Luxurious one-bedroom casita just steps from sand of the Sea of Cortez. Perfect for a couple looking for a romantic get-a-way or a solo traveler desiring special accommodations on the water.

Imagine being lulled to sleep by the sound of the sea in a king size feather-topped bed and waking to the brilliant colors of the sunrise behind Isla Carmen. Custom designed and hand-built cedar furniture incorporates sea glass and shells along with overstuffed leather sofas adorn the 755 square foot casita. Fully equipped kitchen has 5 burner stove, microwave, Calphalon cookware and granite countertops. Both the interior and exterior bathrooms incorporate hand painted tiles and oversized mirrors.

The front patio is the perfect spot to watch the sunrise with morning coffee or evening cocktails as the sky changes color behind the islands. Out back, a 50’ lap pool and entertainment center with state-of-the-art gas grill, sit-down bar and outdoor dining area. Separate restroom and outdoor showers, along with pool toys, beach chairs and umbrella. In the garage, standup paddle boards and two bicycles for your enjoyment

Flat screen TV, DVD, satellite cable, wireless Internet, books, DVDS, 500 count cotton sheets and fluffy towels complete the interior amenities. Separate A/C units for each room – including the bathroom – insure temperature control to personal tastes.

A full-time caretaker is on the grounds to answer questions or help you arrange for a fishing trip – with beach front pickup – or a day exploring the islands.

Casita de Catalina is less than a mile from town – a short walk on the beach – and 5 minutes by car from the heart of Loreto. Restaurants, grocery stores, fishing excursion, scuba lessons and/or dive trips, winter whale watching, glass-bottom boat tours, kayaking adventures, hikes up oasis-like canyons and mule rides to local ranchos can all be arranged. A walk on the pristine Malecon, through the historic district and the Zocolo will further flavor your Loreto experience - truly a "Pueblo Magico."

About Catharine Cooper

I am an avid water person - swim, surf, SUP, sail snorkel - and am proud to call Loreto my second home. A beach girl from the go - I consider it a luxury to launch my SUP boards, kayaks and sailboat from the sand in front of my home. My dog Buster was born on the beach in Loreto - the offspring of two rescue pups. He has become bi-coastal (southern California) and bi-lingual. Woof in both Spanish and English.

Catharine Cooper purchased this house in 2006

Why Catharine Cooper chose Loreto

Casita is newly built - 2016 - on the lot that was contiguous to the main house - Casa de Catalina - purchased in 2006. It was love at first sight - the only property I looked at and made an immediate offer. Perfect location - great neighbors - and the constancy of the sea just steps from the house.

What makes this house unique

Proximity to the water. The magic of the Sea of Cortez and Loreto which is one of a select Mexican cities to earn the title "Pueblo Magico." The CASITA, pool and entertainment areas were a 9 year dream in the making. Am thrilled to be able to share the location and unique building with family and friends - both new and old.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Quality, private, quiet and very clean. This little place could not be designed any more perfectly. We celebrated our anniversary here and wish we had booked more than 7 nights. This perfect little casita is right on the beach. We loved the beautiful sunrise every morning and a romantic moonrise every night. Rode the bikes to town to shop for groceries or eat at one of the several fantastic restaurants. Sometimes we called a taxi for the 5 min drive if we did not feel like biking. Paddle boards are easier to use than we thought. We did not swim in the sea as the water was too cold, so the pool was perfect! I would not change a thing. We look forward to returning and celebrating next year! Thank you Catharine for creating this little home.

Perfect Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Perfect house and location for a relaxing getaway! The views of the water and mountains from our private patio were so beautiful. We had some wind the last 2 days, so we put the pool and secluded patio to use. The sound of the waves at night was very relaxing. The kitchen had all the amenities we needed and we used the poolside BBQ as well. Thanks for sharing your home. Sure hope to come back when the whales are around.

lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a lovely stay. Everything we needed was waiting for us. The place was immaculately clean. The location was beautiful. We took bikes into town which is around a 7 minute ride. There was even a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. If you want a clean upscale private house on the beach with your own pool away from the bustle of town then look no further.

Wonderfully romantic and picturesque casita!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent five days at the Casita Catalina to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue to celebrate... The views were spectacular....the beach was wonderful and the accommodations were modern and contemporary yet very authentic to the region. We loved watching the sunrise every morning on the beach just steps away from our bedroom and swimming in the pool not to mention use of the bicycles to ride into town for margaritas and dinner every night. Catherine and Rigo were extremely gracious and friendly. We just loved our time there!

Peace and comfort on the Sea of Cortez

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Casita de Catalina in early July for 4 days, and we had a fantastic time. The Casita is beautifully decorated, and all the amenities you need are provided. Situated directly on the beach with the Sea of Cortez only steps away, we were able to enjoy quiet mornings with our coffee watching the sunrise as well as lovely evenings enjoying a glass of wine under the stars. What more could you ask for? A lap pool, lounge chairs, and covered grilling area? Okay, you get that too! Not to mention the bikes and stand-up paddle boards that are available if you are so inclined. We tried the SUP for the first time ever, and we loved it. While the Casita is stuated just outside of town, Loreto is accesible via a leisurely 15 min walk along the beach, or an easy 10 min bike ride (if you don't have a car).

Both Catharine, and her handyman, Rigo, were very polite and quick to help with any questions we had, and a book of helpful guest information is provided in the Casita.

If we ever have the opportunity, we will definitely return to Casita de Catalina, and we can confidently recommend the Casita to anyone wanting to enjoy the beauty of Loreto and the Sea of Cortez.
