Why The Owner chose Baja California Sur

This property is a rare half acre compound on the beach. Very private, safe and just far enough out of town (half mile) that the stars look close enough to touch...So safe.

Barbara and Alan's casita and property are beautiful and clean both inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

Barbara and Alan have created a piece of paradise. From the entryway to the courtyard, a beautiful arched door frames a dazzling fountain with droplets of water that sparkle in the sun. The view from the patio of the casita is equally enchanting; the palm trees sway and dance in front of the sea and put on a show for free. My favorite memory of the property is that of drinking coffee by the pool while watching the sunrise over the Sea of Cortez. Really though, we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The people of Loreto are, in large part, what makes it such a special place. And, Barbara and Alan are no exception. They go the extra mile to be accommodating. Their knowledge of the community and fun things to do in Loreto was so helpful. There are so many wonderful activities to enjoy. We went whale watching out beyond Danzante Island and saw Blue Whales and flying Manta Rays. We made good use of the hiking book, beach towels, and cooler that were in the casita and took a 20 minute walk out to a beautiful secluded beach by Doctor's Point. We spent the day watching birds and dolphins. Alan encouraged us to drive up to the San Javier Mission. It's a scenic drive to an oasis in the mountains above Loreto. All of the restaurants they recommended were also wonderful- great food and great service. We'll definitely be coming back to Loreto and can't imagine a better place to stay.

Perfect Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

As others have stated, this was a fantastic place to stay while visiting the wonderful town of Loreto. My husband and I spent a week unwinding from the hectic pace of everyday life! This rental was located in the perfect location - quiet and calming yet convenient for visits to town. On our day of arrival Alan showed us the best of the local restaurants and shops. We visited several of his recommendations and really enjoyed the restaurants La Picazon (well worth the drive) and Vista al Mar (aka the Clam Shack). Alan arranged for Francisco to pick us up in his panga right in front of the house for a beautiful day on the Sea Of Cortez and the island of Coronado. We also spent a day driving to the quaint town of San Javier and another drive to the Pacific Ocean side of the peninsula to witness the beautiful grey whales and their babies. After our days out and about it was always nice to return to our home away from home. The accommodations could not have been more pleasant - the bed was so comfy, very spacious interior, kitchen stocked with everything and we enjoyed coffee every morning on our own patio with the beautiful view of the sea. Many thanks to Barbara and Alan for opening up this Casita for others to enjoy.

Beautful property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful casita in Loreto. This property is located minutes from downtown Loreto and, as advertised, right on the beach. Very clean and well appointed. Al and Barbara were gracious hosts. At one point, my wife twisted her knee and Al had a 'walker' to help her get around, immediately. Thanks again, Al. Loreto is beautiful with a malecon that lines the beach. Great shops, restaurants and history. We would recommend this propery in a heartbeat.

It was so wonderful were moving to Loreto!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our first vacation adventure to Loreto has prompted us to move there!

In need of a quite vacation and celebrating our 10 year wedding aniversary Barbara and

Al casitas was just what we were after! Tranquil, romantic, yet only minutes from a Baja adventure, or a short walk to town, Barbara and Al's home is perfectly located! The sunrise over the ocean and the sunsets over the mountain range were spectacular! We loved every minute of our trip. Barb and Al will show you all the "go to spots" some great gems we would have never known about had it not been for them! Perfect hosts, perfect accommodations perfect town to visit, we will be back to stay! Thank you both for everything!

Our Secret Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

What we loved about Villa De Las Palmas was the tranquility of the location, the owners Barbara and Al who were a wealth of information about Loreto, its history and the wonderful surroundings. We loved morning walks along the beach or retracing those walks along the shoreline in kayaks that are provided with the villa. We loved reading by the pool as the breezes through the coconut palms that surround the pool area. Do not miss the spectacular sunrises and sunsets

The villa is well appointed, very clean, quiet and comfortable with plenty of room. The two king sized beds are so comfortable and the bedrooms offer plenty of room for baggage& fishing gear. We plan to return very soon.

Beautiful Accommodation

  • 3 of 5

The guest casita is beautifully furnished and is above the garage behind the main house. So it actually is not beachfront, what we would call beachfront,

but you have to go through the courtyard past the owner's house to reach the beach. From the casita's deck you had a glimpse of the ocean.

The beach is a typical Baja California beach with lots of small rocks, shells, etc. Barefoot is not possible. We were booking the place also because it had a pool. As it turned out the pool was too chilly to swim in. I only made it in once. We also want to point out that there is in fact no washer/dryer in the house. The amenities indicate that, but when asked the owner told us that it had been taken out. We would suggest to correct this information on the website.

If you think of going fishing, just go to the marina in the afternoon and talk to the local guys there. They are happy to take you out for a bargain price.

The property grounds and the landscaping were beautiful an the hosts were very nice.

Owner's Response: Please refer to my other 24, 5 star reviews. This estate is absolutely beach front. It was architecturally designed by the number one architect in Loreto to give views from both the East and West. You can watch the sunrise over the Sea of Cortes from your bed. The Sea of Cortes and La Gigante mountains are captured from both sides We are a half acre on the beach. This renter had never traveled to Mexico and I think did not get how truly special this little pueblo really is. Loreto has historically been on it's own in mid Baja for hundreds of years. There are maybe 5-6 of us who are beach front properties here that one could rent and the rest rent for double and triple the price.
