Arriving from Seattle on Superbowl afternoon, we were frantic to locate a venue showing our big Seahawks game. Luckily, Casa Grace is so complete in every way that we enjoyed the big game on the home's own satellite system! This lovely, spacious beach home is so well equipped that all we really needed was groceries which were easily available at Loreto's two supermarkets: El Pescador and Ley (with a new 24 hour store under construction between those two on Calle Independencia. Ask the on-site manager Ismael for help in contacting Rodrigo Davis D., our terrific fishing, snorkeling, whale watching guide. A car is really necessary to fully enjoy the region's canyon hikes, restaurants and San Javier Mission. Choose Europcar to avoid last minute surprise insurance assessments.
Our stay at Loretto Shores during the Christmas Holidays was excellent! We spent a week at Bob and Sue's beach front "Casa Grace".
First of all Sue was so accommodating and really helpful. On the heels of another reservation and our last minute booking, we were able to enjoy the stay right up to the last moment: Susan really worked with making our stay wonderful. Its a great location right on the beach and with the small surf lapping on the sand it made for a comfortable sleep. Sunrises were spectacular!
Casa Grace is spacious, beautifully decorated, the kitchen well appointed, very clean and had everthing we needed to make our stay comfortable. They even have local fishing guides listed for those wanting to use a guide. There also is a wonderful pool steps from the house. The community folks were also great and we were even extended a Christmas dinner invite! The manager, Ismael, is super friendly, helpful and shared with us all the different store locations and the best places to eat.
Our trip included hauling a boat and it truly is not always fun hauling anything in BAJA, especailly 500 miles. When we got to Loreto Shores after dark, the drama turned into dreams as we had a great secure place to park the boat with the launch right down the street. We even caught some nice size Yellowtail and Cabrilla!
Thanks Bob and Sue for sharing your wonderful home!
We just returned and will say that Bob and Susan have done an amazing job decorating and furnishing their home beautifully and in the local style. Excellent location on the beach and truly, just steps to the pool. The house was very clean, luxurious and fully furnished making it easy to feel relaxed instantly. The pool is perfect temp and was clean. Kayaks were available right on our property. The neighbors were very kind, fun and helpful. The residents and RV visitors in Loreto Shores were enjoyable to socialize with.
Loreto is a quaint town, especially in the main square. We found the local people to be very gracious and the restaurant food (especially Mita's Gourmet) to be outstanding. We felt safe at all times.
A few things to be aware of:
1) Choose the better weather times.. Our weather went from hot and beautiful to the fall-out of a nearby hurricaine which became a tropical storm. Many days of clouds and 2 days of straight rain caused mud, flooded streets and no taxi service. The better months are October through April. ((Stuck inside during the torrential rain, we couldn't get satellite connection or the DVD player connected.)
2) Be informed re: the rules of swimming in the ocean. One needs to be advised about the sting rays in the shallow water. Our first day was spent in the local hospital ER (thank God they have one, albeit quite unsterile) getting a nerve block for pain relief.
3) Unfortunately the community manager was out of town during our 10 day stay. Thus we had no phone access for booking a kayak excursion, snorkeling, taxi service etc. The neighbors were helpful but we felt guilty having to bother them.
Overall, the web site is all correct and helpful. Noting the above considerations and making decisions with that advice in mind, one would expect to have a very enjoyable time in Loreto at Casa Grace.
The first morning we awoke to the sun peeking over the Coronado Islands then splashing beautifully across the bay to the beach in front of our bedroom window. So serene and a great welcome to Loreto Shores. Casa Grace is one of 14 homes that are right on the beachfront in a secure American owned community. There are more homes within the property, but not on the beach. The home is decorated in many artful Mexican curios, art, and sculptures and comfortable furniture and beds. Susan and Bob found excellent craftsmen for the finishing touches during construction. The interior doors are hand carved ocean scenes and the cabinetry in the kitchen is some of the best I've ever seen. Susan has provided everything a person would need to live and cook comfortably as though it were your own home. There is a swimming pool literally steps from the Casa that is clean and heated. My 8 year old spent many hours almost everyday in the pool. We met many of the other home owners relaxing at the pool. When I asked my son what was the best part of his vacation in Loreto, he said to my surprise, "I liked the house.........no, I loved the house!". The pool rated second place. Casa Grace is a wonderfully comfortable home with everything needed for a perfect vacation!
