Why Bert & Terri Ferguson chose Loreto
In Loreto Baja California Sur, we found a region with a rich and vibrant history. Loreto was the original capital of all the Californias over 300 years ago. It was established in 1697 by the explorer Juan Maria Salvatierra, a Jesuit priest. You can see evidence of this history in the Missions, municipal buildings and the hearts and souls of the Loretanos. Loreto is a natural playground for anyone who loves the outdoor life. Its azure, clear waters and tranquil coves provide scuba divers and snorkelers unparalleled underwater beauty and an abundance of sea life. Near the islands, the waters provide sportsmen with perhaps the greatest fishing in the world, with record catches of sailfish, tuna and dorado. The islands are easily visited by boat and such a trip will no doubt include sightings of sea lions basking in the sun on rocky coasts and dolphins leaping across the bow wave of the boat. Sea kayakers glide through the warm waters of Loreto’s bays to camp at remote beaches and sleep under the stars. For those who are more land-bound adventurous, the Sierra de la Giganta’s provides many opportunities for mountain biking, horseback riding trails and hiking over ancient trails used for hundreds of years.
What makes this House unique
Our Casa is ~50 feet from the beach and ocean, with easy access directly off the front steps of the property. The Village oceanfront malecon is walking distance from the Casa and is an ideal place for an afternoon stroll; or in the early morning, when the offshore islands appear like floating rocks in the Sea of Cortéz. The locals say that this is “where the mountains come to swim.”

The house was a terrific base for me, my two teenage (nearly adult) sons and their two friends. We spent three days on the water fishing and diving different islands, escaping the brutal August heat of Loreto. The spacious house had air-conditioning and fans (which sometimes was all we wanted) was a perfect place for the evenings. We took morning and evening swims at the nearby gulf, and did a little kayaking, too. (One suggestion: Provide key for the big garage door as it's a bear to get the kayaks out from the side.) We had one massive nighttime storm that flooded the streets that lead to the house, but we wound our way around the neighborhoods to find dry passages in our rental car (bike riding was out of the question both because of the flooding and the heat...and one bike has a flat). Most restaurants in town were open and time and again we were the only non-locals. Tere was there as promised to open the house, and all in all a terrific time.
Great to hear you had a great time in Loreto and enjoyed our Casa. Sorry to hear the large garage door was not unlocked so you could get the kayaks out easily. I will remind my property manager that should be done upon guest arrival. We appreciate your feedback.
Definitely a 5 star stay!
A great time in a great place. Clean, excellent location and great amenities. This time was a fishing trip for the guys but I'm taking my wife back in a couple months. Perfect location and the house was Comfortable and well stocked.
Glad to hear you had a great time!
Great quiet vacation home
Very nice home with everything. Super comfortable beds. Good a/c, well furnished.
50 yards from the warm Sea of Cortez water. Close enough to town. Great food..must go to 'Mi Loreto' Town is not over run with tourists, yet plenty of tourist things to do.
Isla Coronado is amazing..snorkel with sea lions. Saw100s of Dolphin and a dozen manta rays.
Great to hear you enjoyed Loreto and our Casa.

We 're very pleased to hear you found our casa comfortable and that you enjoyed the Kayaks!
MAR DE COTES Loreto BCS
Usually head to the East Cape this time of year for our anniversary and always using VRBO however it had been 15 years since I visited Loreto. So glad we made that decision as the town really has kept is small town charm. The locals were so friendly and town was very clean. Every morning I would walk to the Malecon and throughout the town and you would see everyone cleaning the street and sidewalks. Lots of pride by local.
La Casa de Ensueno was the perfect place to stay. Close to town however enough of distance to feel like you had your own private beach. Owner Bert and Terri were amazing in the communication and booking process. Casa had everything you could ask for "even a lime juicer for great margaritas" . Views of the mountains and morning sunrise was an event in itself. The refrigerator/freezer was large which I usually do not find in VRBO's in Baja. This was perfect since I fish and was able to freeze my catch. One item that the owners do that set this VRBO apart from my past experience is the overview of places to eat and things to do they send you after you book your stay.
Thank you Bert and Terri
Looking at calendar for next year
On a side note when we travel to Baja we usually take items for local Orphanages. We found a local lady "Linda Turner" ( everyone seems to know her) who works with the children. Always nice to give back a little something.
Awesome to hear you stopped in the Loreto Orphanage to give back to the community. We really appreciate your great review of Loreto and our Casa - Thank you!
Great place, great service
We really enjoyed our time in Loreto. La Casa del Ensueño was exactly as advertised. And we were very impressed by how calm and safe Loreto was not to mention the beautiful land and seascape!
Great to hear you enjoyed Loreto & our Casa!
