About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, two sleeper sofas (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy high-end style at low season rates!

Why would you choose this house over the other 40+ two bedroom Casa Chicas in Loreto Bay? The answer is LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION…and us. Casa 473 is on the corner near the 17th hole with no homes in front or back giving you a unconfined feeling plus our home boasts of having one of the largest green spaces in the development. The community pool is literally out your back gate and golf course out the front door for a great walk. The “us” part is the personal care you will enjoy from your first experience in booking followed by being welcomed and greeted by our property manager and finally living in a home we stocked for the discerning guest (not to mention ourselves). The reviews are real and echo what we assert and will hopefully include your review soon!

The 3Rs are yours: Relax, Refresh, and Renew your soul in gorgeous, peaceful Baja Sur’s Loreto Bay Village. Things to do? The breathtaking playground of the Sea of Cortez is on your doorstep surrounded by the majestic mountains of the Sierra de la Giganta. Charming Loreto town is minutes away brimming with delightful restaurants & shopping. Loreto (LTO) has direct flights from the US west coast with Alaska Airlines (Los Angeles) or on WestJet direct from Calgary.


Upon arrival you, our guests, will step into a special place. From the large, palm-treed courtyard, open the French doors to your casa & our lovely, well-equipped, two bedroom, two bathroom vacation home. The main floor includes kitchen/dining area, living room, master/king bedroom with desk, and bathroom/shower/tub with deluxe amenities. From the kitchen, gaze onto one of the largest, private green spaces in the neighborhood complete with gas grill. Upstairs you’ll find the well-furnished terrace leading into the private, master/queen suite with balcony overlooking the pool area. Stunning views are the next level up at the viewing tower or ‘mirador’. From the mirador check out all that is Loreto Bay: golf course, mountains, sea, and unending charm. And, oh, that night sky… Magical!

Our beautiful, well-appointed casa provides a great vista of the golf course or seascape from the mirador. Choices abound:

- Lounge beside the pool just outside the back gate of our large palm-treed courtyard.

- Hop-skip to the beach or the Inn with restaurants and/or water sport rentals.

- Relax on our terrace lounge chairs, with your favorite drink in hand, dining al fresco or taking in the vista from bar stools in the mirador.


Take a five-minute stroll to the beach and the Inn at Loreto Bay for restaurants, snorkeling, kayaking, and more. Wander along the boulevard or ‘paseo’ and visit the wine bar, cafés, shops, Loreto Store stocked with simple groceries in FN305 next to the Community Center, hair/massage/nails salon, or Community Center in FN348.

Our property manager Arturo is fluent in English, is at your service to make your stay at our Casa your #1 choice in Loreto. Contact us for your best long-term deal here in Loreto Bay! Stay the summer or longer.

Bedrooms + living room have AC/ceiling fans & TVs; living room has satellite TV service & DVD, TWO separate WiFi providers, a built-in safe and ground floor laundry for your use.

In 2016 VRBO began rolling out new service fees to be charged to travelers who book through HomeAway, VRBO, and The new service fee is a percentage-based fee of about 6–7% and fee is collected during the checkout process. In addition, VRBO charges credit card transaction and foreign currency fees, so if you are a non-US citizen and using a credit card, then they will also assess those fees (~5%) behind the scenes and these fees will reduce the available deposit to be refunded to you after your stay.

We wanted to be sure you’re aware of this new fee, and to share with you why we offer alternative payment options such as bank check and PayPal.

About Greg Brown

We enjoy travel around the world including simple trips from our home base in Alaska to Loreto Baja California Sur (BCS).

Greg Brown purchased this villa in 2013

Why Greg Brown chose Baja California Sur

We live in Alaska and have always wanted a winter get-away. We traveled to many cities in the Baja and mainland Mexico seeking a second home in a safe environment but with a feeling of local community. It had to be on the water with a versatile terrain. Finding the charming town of Loreto, the Sea of Cortez and the gorgeous mountain back drop plus the comforts and security of the Loreto Bay development made this Casa our choice!

What makes this villa unique

We like our quiet spot in the Loreto Bay neighborhood combined with one of the larger green spaces to feel uncloistered and private. Having the community pool in our 'back yard' is a pretty sight off the terrace and very convenient to use going out the back gate. The easy access to the golf course is great for the many walks we take. Everyone who visits says our home feels so comfortable. Most all of our decor is made in Mexico making the home a real villa feel.

Wonderful week at Loreto Bay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at Loreto Bay. Greg was so helpful and provided us with great recommendations. The condo was lovely and well equipt. The weather was fabulous and we enjoyed the pool and resort facilities. We especially enjoyed the wine bar - great food and friendly atmosphere. Thank you Greg. We hope to return next year.

Tranquil, Peaceful, Quiet, Relaxing, Close to Pool

  • 4 of 5

This unit is fully stocked to accomidate your every need. The kitchen has everything to fix a gourmet meal, or fix the cocktail of your choice. Is perfect for two couples or a family with two children. The pool is literally out the back gate, and the 11th tee of the golf course is out the front door. The villa is located in a convienent area with easy access to the local eateries, local grocery store and wine cellar. The hotel is close where the spa and massages are heavenly. There is so much outdoor activity to do that your worn out at the end of the day. The sunrises are spectacular from the viewing tower.

Fantastic Casa and owners!

  • 5 of 5

I don't know which to praise first: the casa or Nina and Nick. Nina should be acknowledge

first for her helpfulness, desire to meet all the renters' needs and wants, her concerns, generosity and thoughtfulness. She went way beyond my expiations! Nick was very helpful with car insurance and the golf course.

As far as the property: it was clean, very attractive, comfortable, (beds are as comfortable as my beds at home) very well stocked in kitchen amenities, towels, beach towels, lounge chairs, local art and on and on. The location of the casa was perfect since it was a half a block away from the 17th green, with beautiful views of the mountains and the pool from the terrace and viewing tower and only steps from the swimming pool. In my opinion, this casa has the best location that's around the pool. It is back from the pool so that it is secluded and quiet.

Thanks Nina and Nick for sharing your home.

A little bit of heaven!!!

  • 5 of 5

Nina was a delight to work with and was extremely accommodating in getting our vacation rental set up. She was able to provide good recommendations about the area. The "casa" was excellent, spotless and ready to go when we arrived. Arturo had the A/C going and greeted us at the door. Extremely comfortable beds and everything we needed for a relaxing 2 weeks. The pool is just steps out the back door and the Wine Bar is in the same "block". We would definitely rent again as the experience could not have been better.

We spent two fantastic weeks in this unit and it was truly a vacation! The pool location is key because some units are right on the pool which invites pool noise (there wasn't much.) This unit is just tucked a hair away from pool so you get the easy access (direct gate from your unit) but no noise.

The Loreto Bay Hotel and the beach is an easy five minute walk from the unit. We rented kayaks from Arturo's (talk to Jorge) and dove for clams (Jorge taught us) right from this beach. After a day of adventuring we would get a drink from the swim-up bar at the hotel pool and a bite at the restaurant. If you are feeling proper, you can wrap up in a beach towel...its very relaxed and easy. After that we would take our catch of the day home and jump into our own pool for a bit. Good Times!!

We have stayed in quite a few rental homes and this one was one of the best. From 1-10, I'd rate cleanliness a 10. There was no feeling of other people's "ick". Door knobs/light switches/fixtures were sparkling; we really felt like we were guests in a (clean) friends house. It was great! Everything is organized and easy to find. The kitchen is great and has everything you need. Outdoor bbq was large enough to grill up the Dorado we caught off our kayak...had to brag! We are divers so we brought a lot of gear. We left everything outside in the very private and very secure courtyard where there was plenty of room to rinse everything out. Parking was right outside our unit.

We will definitely return to Loreto and rent this unit again. A few other owners made it clear in our inquiries that we would be "seeing them" often during our stay. While Loreto Bay is not crowded and we ran into the same people often, we didn't like the inclination that there would be pop overs at our unit. Nina was a great host and although we were strangers in her home there were no phone calls or disturbances. She made sure she was available to us via email and cell and we were on our own. Thank You, Nina!!

Beautiful casa

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Nina & Rick for a fantastic stay in sunny Loreto! The casa is well represented in both pictures and description. The owners are very easy to work with and willingly answer any of your questions with detailed answers. The casa is tastefully decorated with authentic artwork and beautiful ceramics. The furniture inside and outside is very comfortable and high end. The kitchen is well stocked and has modern appliances. The house was very clean and well maintained. There are 3 private outside areas to use. We especially enjoyed the viewing tower where we watched the sun rise over the Sea of Cortez and in the evening the sunset was over the Sierra de la Giganta. Two nights we were able to see a magnificent lighting show dancing in the sky north of Loreto. Our timing was perfect for a butterfly hatch with waves of yellow and white butterflies filling the air. A big bonus was parking outside the front door which most of the other houses do not have. The community was colorful and well maintained. The casa was centrally located with the mini store and other businesses a block away. The pool is steps away. The Inn at Loreto Bay is just a short stroll and has several restaurants. The beach is a short walk with beautiful sand and clear water. You will not be disappointed with the casa and Loreto is a charming village with lots of activities.
