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 poolside half bath and outdoor showers, along with pool toys, beach chairs and umbrella. In the garage, standup paddle boards, two kayaks, 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 – or 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 waterfront 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 Municipality

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.

                                                            This was our first time to Loreto and we absolutely loved our time and hope to return. This casa is in a prime location! We walked many miles up & down the beach to the left & into town, A LOT! I regret not seizing the calm water days to try the paddle board or kayaks, but we know better for next time. It’s been a bit too windy for it this week, but the wind is welcomed when walking. Will definitely miss the morning sunrise & the sound of the waves. You can’t ask for a better spot! Having the pool area to enjoy in the afternoons was great for reading, resting and enjoying both sun and shade. Catherine was a delight, very knowledgeable and we were fortunate to attend one night of the Film Festival with her recommendation. We met Johnny Friday, one of the cinematographers the day after, along with Judith from Cabo Pluma the day of the Film Festival. It’s encouraging to hear and see the efforts in protecting the environment, reefs and sea we all enjoy. You will not be disappointed in this location. We picked it for the reviews and leave another praise for the area and this location! It’s hard to leave today. It’s been an awesome time and thankful for all the exploring we did, but so much more available in this beautiful area. Love Loreto!!!

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            I am SOOO happy that everything was to your liking - and especially glad you made it to our first annual "One Ocean" Film Festival and got to meet Johnny and Judith. The conservation efforts for the Sea of Cortez and the surrounding lands of Baja are close to my heart. Hope you can come back next year for our SECOND annual film festival. Thanks so much for being such great guests :-)

                                                            Lovely Casita

                                                            Bruce W.Bend Oregon

                                                            The casita, furniture, linens, appliances, pool, BBQ are all top notch. It was great having the bikes to ride into town for groceries and/or lunch. It is such a short taxi ride from/to the airport that we did not rent a car. It was pretty windy while we were there, so the sheltered pool area was appreciated. Make sure to bring water shoes for rocky beach area. The only down side for us was all the barking dogs. This is not something the owner can control, but at one time, there were 5 dogs next door, barking continuously at anyone that walked by on the beach.

                                                            Home Away From Home

                                                            Lance P.

                                                            We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Catharine's wonderful little casita. The people of Loreto are so welcoming we felt right at home. Rigo, the caretaker, and his family are the nicest people and the property is well taken care of. In fact we enjoyed it so much we are coming back next year!

                                                            Wonderful Casita, Wonderful Loreto!

                                                            Carol S.

                                                            The Casita is very comfortable, the location perfect. Loreto is a wonderful little town to visit. Loreto is a short walk on the beach, an easy bike ride or a quick drive. The walk north on the beach goes forever -- a must do for some great shelling! The kayaks, the paddle boards, the pool.... everything was in place for us to just have a great time, relax and enjoy ourselves. Thank you for sharing your special place!


                                                            Rebecca H.

                                                            Private and gorgeous beach casita

                                                            Sharon K.

                                                            My husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary and couldn't have picked a better spot. Everything we needed was right there (paddleboards, pool toys, kayaks,etc.)! Hostess left super helpful notes about things to do and great places to eat (although we enjoyed many of our meals in our private backyard pool area with BBQ). And Rigo kept the grounds looking beautiful during our stay. Loved it and we will definitely return.
