It is only a few minutes walk to the Inn at Loreto Bay, 4 restaurants, 2 coffee shops, car rental, sport equipment rental and excursion trip office. Loreto Bay is unique and extremely quiet with few roads for cars...most people travel by foot or golf carts on the European style walking paths between the homes- it is extremely peaceful and private.
The magnificent Sea of Cortes and National Marine Park Islands are a dramatic vision from sunrise to sunset. It can all be seen while resting at the edge of the 23 x 13-ft infinity-edge heated pool with waterfall or relaxing on the outdoor sectional sofa.

Imagine...20 steps to the beach and 40 steps to the golf course!

"We absolutely loved our stay at FN5. It has everything we need or want in a beautiful custom ocean front luxury home. We never made it to the 2nd floor entertaining areas or had a chance to watch the sunset over the spectacular mountain views around the fire pit from the 3rd floor deck because the view from the pool, kitchen, spa, and living room overlooking the islands and steps from the ocean were so compelling. The kitchen is ultra wonderful with Viking appliances. I love to cook and really appreciate the quality of a well stocked kitchen, especially with an expresso machine and didn't want for anything. We had a chef come to the home and prepare a five course gourmet meal for 5 of our friends that have a home here and were visiting at the same time.
We couldn't leave the very comfortable seating area off the pool and read many books there after hiking around the beach and golf course or returning from a day trip petting a baby whale with her mother a short half hour away or a really great massage from Sharon Dean.
With iPod stations in almost every room, be sure to bring your favorite music.
Having been to Loreto many times, we happily discovered the new addition of the Wine Bar cozy restaurant with heavenly tapas and a full bar and the new coffee shop, El Corazon where every one meets up after golfing, swimming or jogging to get the last fresh baked scones hot out of the oven. Get there before 10 as they always sell out. Not to worry though because the muffins and power cookies are just as delicious.
Our only regret was that we didn't invite a few more friends to share this experience with. We will make sure to next time, as there is plenty of privacy with 3 master ocean front view suites and even a 4th suite with 2 bunk beds and a queen bed if you need it.
The assistance and attentiveness of the owners assistant, Megan and their property managers staff made the experience easy and comfortable.
We can't wait until our next visit!!"
