Overview

Baja California Sur House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 or 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Can Sleep 8)

You can rent 2 or 3 bedrooms in this fabulous home. Rate is $110/night for 2 bedrooms, $140/night for 3 bedrooms. (If renting only 2 bedrooms, owner edits/lowers the rental quote when you send your inquiry.) It's furnished beautifully and comfortably (to rigorous rental program specifications (i.e. v-e-r-y comfortable beds!) with quality workmanship throughout. Fabulous water and mountain views from the second floor patio and 3rd floor viewing tower. It's bigger in size than most homes, just steps to the water and hotel. Long-term and snow bird renters welcome.

Located near the historical town of Loreto in Baja California Sur, Mexico, Loreto Bay homes offer beauty, relaxation, social and sports activities. The home itself is very spacious and comfortable and decorated in a casual elegant style while incorporating much Mexican artistic detail. We can provide many additional photos by e-mail.

The development and home are very modern in conveniences yet you feel you have stepped back in time a bit. You will enjoy the many walking streets (no cars allowed beyond the main street), sport and social activities and beautiful scenery you see everywhere around you.

About Martha Larkin

I live in San Diego CA and own a vacation home in Loreto Bay, Baja CA Sur Mexico. My background is teaching. Currently I am a realtor in San Diego County. I am a businesswoman and am very organized. I was born in 1949. I speak Spanish fluently.

Martha Larkin purchased this house in 2007

Why Martha Larkin chose Baja California Sur

Loreto Bay is breathtakingly beautiful. The mountains come down to the Sea of Cortez. The development itself has the goal of being ecologically self-sustaining. The homes are architecturally very appealing--my home has a large upstairs patio plus a third floor viewing tower--you can see and enjoy the Sea of Cortez and the mountains from both. There are many sport and social activities available. The town of Loreto is charming.

What makes this house unique

One can enjoy golf, boating, biking, hiking, snorkeling/diving, riding, tennis, kayaking, shelling, windsurfing, wildlife viewing, hunting, sailing, swimming, fitness center/gym, all arranged at the development. In the town of Loreto there are wonderful restaurants, shopping, night life, and many charming historical sites.

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS - WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely villa – it’s absolutely beautiful. Very clean and well maintained with beautiful furnishings. We spent a considerable amount of time enjoying the view from the tower and being just one row of homes from the beach was nice. We took advantage of the golf course and restaurants in the community – all within walking distance. Be sure to inquire about weekly rates at the golf course – great savings. Some of our favorite restaurants were (Wine Bar, El Corazon, & Pedro’s). We really enjoyed the drive up to San Javier to see the Mission. Loreto exceeded our expectations and we are already looking forward to a return visit.

A Great Week in Loreto Bay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very welcoming from the moment we walked in the door. We were given the name of the property manager but of course we did not have to use it! The furniture was all very comfortable with us not wanting for anything more. A special note about how very comfortable the bed are is required. The access to the beach was fabulous as the condo is only one house away from the beautiful beach and ocean. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything that we would need as well the pantry items that were left for guest use was very much appreciated. The condo was very clean which made us very comfortable. Each room had its own bathroom which afforded enough space for 3 couples easily. With the size of the condo it made it easy for each person to have their own space if needed. The court yards and pathways were breath taking with very well taken care of and manicured flower beds. Everyone that we came across was very friendly and spoke English. Should we chose to visit Loreto again we will be sure to try to procure this condo again and again. Thanks very much!

First visit to Loreto, MX

  • 5 of 5

The house is immaculately clean and beautifully furnished. The kitchen has plenty of dishes, silverware, pots and pans. We were able to comfortably entertain 6 for dinner. The layout of home affords plenty of privacy as well as comfortable common areas. Each bedroom has own large bathroom. I loved the 3rd floor look out tower and deck which afforded a 360 degree view of the Sea of Cortez and the surrounding mountains. Great restaurants within walking distance. The most fabulous lap pool I've ever seen. When whale watching and hiking. Beautiful landscaping. Everyone we met was friendly, helpful and welcoming. Loreto is fishing village and had some wonderful fish dinners and tacos. Also lots of guacamole. Enjoyed shopping and attending concert in town and attending Mass at the Mission. I'd love to return.

Laid back Loreto

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property in the Founders Neighborhood is exceptional. It is spacious, clean, and well appointed.

The views from the tower are terrific. Each day I watched the sun set over the mountains from there. At night I observed the stars and could see more of them than I had seen in years. Most mornings I was up in the tower in time to see the sun rise . Every night I slept with the windows open and listened to the relaxing sound of the waves. The complex is planted with an interesting variety of plants, flowers, and trees, all of which are very well maintained. I loved the fact that the homes are removed from automobile traffic. Walking around the complex was enjoyable and interesting. Another plus is the lap pool. It is beautiful. The whole Loreto experience was exceptionally memorable and enjoyable.

Picturesque Villa Living

  • 5 of 5

The villa was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed! Very spacious and clean. The pictures don't do it justice. The view was fantastic! We ventured into the town of Loreto several times and it was very close and convenient. You have to try Mi Loreto restaurant. Delicious!

Unfortunately when we stayed the beach was under repair and off limits but it looked very temporary. The driving directions were terrible. They didn't take into account people that are driving in and arriving at night and aren't familiar with the area. We only had a map of the complex and no street names to go off of. The written instructions said to go to the Inn at Loreto Bay but we never saw an inn and if you miss one sign you are toast. Look for Lorteto Bay Golf Resort or Hotel at Loreto Bay.

Overall it was a great experience and working with the realtor was easy! We will be coming back!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you loved the Villa. I'm here right now and it IS great. Beach is fine and there are new shady palapas steps from our door.. I've updated directions to the house (the hotel keeps changing names). Also, there's now a new very big speed bump in the street at the walkway where you turn to walk to our beautiful villa. Makes it easy to find day or night.
