Loreto House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 2-6)

Welcome to


YOU are invited to the most beautiful and serene destination in Baja California, Mexico. This luxurious home is located in Founders Village next to the hotel just a few miles south of the historic town of Loreto and just a few steps away from the sandy beach of Loreto Bay. We now have two KAYAKS at the house for our guests to go explore the wonders of Loreto Bay. Make sure you bring your camera.

This European traditional style home is designed to ensure you reside in the comfort and luxury you deserve on your dream vacation. The furnishings and fixtures have been selected to surround you in the wonders and charm of fine Baja architecture. Mexican tile, deep hinged windows, wrought iron stairways and beautiful brickwork are just a few of the many eye catching features. All rooms have heating, air-conditioning, ceiling fan, and wireless broadband.

Upon arriving enter our home to a private interior courtyard with water fountain feature; enjoy your morning coffee or tea under the covered patio. Open one of the three sets of French doors to the fully equipped kitchen, dining room which seats six, family room with Flat screen TV, Queen Sleeper leather couch and love seat, computer desk, wifi and a large selection of videos and games. Mexican tile flooring and rugs. Our house has been decorated mainly with art and pottery pieces from the local stores here in Loreto Bay. The first Master Bedroom en suite comes with an extremely comfortable King size bed. We have an abundance of pillows, sheets, blankets and towels. Soak in the oversize tub or wash away your worries in the large walk-in shower. Luxurious Bath robes provided. The two sinks are very well stocked, hair dryers, curling iron etc.

Sunbathe upstairs on the loungers on the Terrace level. Cook your favorite meal on the outdoor bar b que. We had a local chef come prepare, serve a meal for us and some guests on our spacious covered lighted patio. Plenty of seating. Tons of FUN! Early morning or dusk is the best time to really appreciate being up in the view tower. Whether you take a cup of coffee, glass of wine, margarita or cerveza take in the breathtaking views of the Sea of Cortez and the Sierra de la Giganta mountain range. If you are a stargazer you will just want to lay out all night and look up at the sky. The clear dark skies illuminate so many stars it is an incredible site. In the day stroll through these Village homes and admire the beautiful exotic landscaping and water fountains. Cars are only permitted on the main road.

The town of Loreto is unique in the fact that it is a small fishing town with lots of history.

It has been a well kept secret for many years and when you visit you feel like you have stepped back in time. The pace of life is nice and slow and relaxing just what you want when on vacation. Taking the time in the day to appreciate life. There is plenty of shopping and excellent dining to be done in the cobblestone streets of Loreto and a visit to its famous Mission established in 1697 is a must. Jacques Cousteau called the Sea of Cortez 'The worlds Aquarium'.The New York Times listed Loreto #8 on their list of places to visit worldwide.

Yes, this location is relaxing but you can also have a lot of fun! You will not want to leave.There are numerous activities including world class sport fishing, whale watching, Glass bottom boat rides, kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling, biking, hiking and a stunning 18 hole golf course that wraps itself around Loreto Bay.

Wonderful Stay in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

If you would like to relax, take in the beauty of the ocean and wildlife and enjoy kayaking, this is the place for you. Casa Jillian is steps from the beach with an amazing private view from the tower and mid-level deck. The house is very well taken care of and the flora and fauna around the complex are breathtaking. Everything is very clean, neat, and you always feel safe with the 24 hr security. Having a few grocery items ready when we arrived helped with our first few days and getting to know our way around the small village. We would highly recommend this home for a private, romantic, relaxing getaway. Excellent homeowners who took the time to make sure all of our needs were met. We are sold!

Completely awesome.

  • 5 of 5

Great home, super amenities and attentive management. Kayaks were bonus amenity we enjoyed nearly every day to see rays, angel fish and other marine life. Collapsing wagon handy for bringing farmers market produce and fish from parking to home was appreciated. Location and view were excellent. Full screens on doorways allowed us to sleep with doors and windows wide open to enjoy the fresh air and hear the surf. Grill worked great.

Great location with toddler

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 5 nights in Feb. 2015 with 5 of us, including my parents and 2 year old. The home is beautifully decorated and the kitchen was well equipped, though we had to really search for some things. The only minor issues such as lightbulbs out were quickly attended to by the excellent property manager. All 5 of us took advantage of the kayaks that came with the rental to enjoy the incredibly calm and beautiful Sea of Cortez and it was helpful to have various beach chairs etc. for our use as the beach was only a few steps away. The bathroom tubs were large and great for giving our toddler baths. We took advantage of the various recommendations for places to eat (Islas on the Malecon in Loreto was our favorite) but also cooked and grilled fish there. It was a great location to have a toddler as you are close to a kids' pool, the beach, and the development is mostly without cars so our little one could jump and run on the paths around the house as soon as the sun came up. The view from the roof of the sunrise was fabulous--I should know as I was up for all five of them! We would love to return.

Owner's Response: I agree with you that the sunrises are fabulous but not everyone has a 2 year old to wake them up every morning to appreciate them LOL. Hope we see you soon.regards kathy

Contagious Casa Jillian!

  • 5 of 5

We had our first visit to Loreto and Casa Jillian on Christmas Eve. We had an absolutely wonderful time and plan on returning! I will begin with our stay at Casa Jillian. There was absolutely everything we desired during our stay...this home has EVERYTHING you need! We totally enjoyed the two kayaks and snorkeling equipment. The home had all the tools to indulge in homemade margaritas and to prepare and cook the fresh fish caught with Pancho Barracuda, who was recommended by Kathy. The grounds and view from the 2nd and 3rd story was stupendous! The majestic mountains to one side and turquoise sea on the other were certainly breathtaking each and every day. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet in this restful home. We enjoyed everything from the beautiful furnishings, courtyard garden, to the luxurious robes and soft, fluffy towels. There were many books, games and puzzles available if you find the time:)

Loreto was also a charming town. We are folks who appreciate the culture and life of the community we visit. We visited the Tortillia Dulce for fresh tortillas and Taco Del Ray for fresh fish tacos. Souvenir Shopping is scarce but we found some sweet bowls to bring home to friends. The church and museum were fascinating in this quaint town. If you want a quiet and restful vacation with a little bit of old Mexico, Loreto is the place.

Owner's Response: Hi Eileen: It was very special for me to meet and greet your daughter first then you and your husband Paul. As myself and my husband were spending Christmas and New years with our friends in Loreto Bay I had the rare opportunity to do this. Usually it is my wonderful property manager Arturo who does this. Thanks for taking the time to write about your visit to Loreto Bay.Much appreciated. regards Kathy

Wonderful vacation rental in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kathy's house. Kathy kept in contact with us during our stay to be sure we had everything we needed. The location near, but not on the waterfront was ideal in terms of views and privacy. The house is made for indoor outdoor living, with the bedrooms accessed from a central courtyard. The rooms are beautifully furnished and decorated, and everything one would need for preparing meals and housekeeping was provided. Sunrises were very colorful and we especially enjoyed the third floor covered patio for sunsets over the mountains. It is important to have a car to get back and forth to Loreto. We drove a rental car from San Jose del Cabo, which I would not recommend to others. I would fly to Loreto if we do return, and I would rent Kathy's beautiful house again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful in everyway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 just returned from spending Thanksgiving week in Loreto Bay/Nopolo at this amazing home! Casa Jillian has all the comforts of home: beautiful decor, comfortable beds and furniture, complete kitchen with everything you need.

Thank you Kathy for being so thoughtful in your preparations and making sure we had everything that we needed while we were there. Her property manager, Arturo, will make sure you you have beers, limes and a few basic things from mercado when you arrive. It was really nice to have a cold beer up in the tower looking at the 360' views of the bay and the mountains when we arrived.

We enjoyed the the pools, the kayaks, the beach, the grounds and fountains..all of it!! Be sure to take a panga to Coronado island: 1/2 day trip, good snorkeling, sea lion colony and white sand beaches!! Beautiful!! We were sorry to have to leave but we will be back and hope to rent Casa Jillian again.
