About Sara Wiener

We are two couples living in Bend, Oregon. We love the outdoors and wanted a warm get-away with great outdoor activities at our doorstep. We know a great woman in Loreto who can set you up on kayak trips and mule trips to see ancient cave paintings. There is great wild fishing outside out doorstep in the Sea of Cortez, islands near by with pristine white sand beaches, and great cultural activities like visiting ancient missions in the mountains or right in the center of downtown Loreto. The people in Loreto are incredibly friendly and it is a very safe place to visit and wonder around. The food is great in town, or, buy or catch some fish from a local and grill it yourself on our outdoor gas grill on the second floor of our home. It's amazingly beautiful there and you will love all of the amenities of our home. It's the perfect get away- super quiet and lots to do if you aren't into total relaxation!

Sara Wiener purchased this house in 2008

Why Sara Wiener chose Baja California Sur

We bought this great home because it is part of a sustainable community which values the environment and respects the natural resources. Our home is new, adobe in style, and has all of the amenities you could ask for. We love the beaches, kayaking, fishing, whaling, hiking, mountain biking, golfing, and the culture of this wonderful authentic Mexican town of Loreto. The area has magnificent natural beauty and minimal development. It is extremely safe and very friendly.

What makes this house unique

We have a brand new (July 2013) beautiful lap pool right behind our home. See photos. We love walking or running along the golf course paths early in the morning to bird watch, and to see the sun rise over the Sea of Cortez. We also love kayaking in the unique mangrove estuary that's adjacent to Loreto Bay.

A very nice house for your vacation !!!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to be able to spend a few days in this lovely home in Loreto; it sure had all the amenities needed to provide us with an excellent and relaxing vacation in this lovely part of Baja California, Mexico. The location of the house is just excellent, just a few feet from a very nice pool and very near the beach as well. The neighborhood is well taken care of, and you can enjoy your afternoons in a peace and quiet environment.

The grill is on an excellent location together with the outside table and chairs, which will provide your dinners with a gorgeous landscape of the mountains and the sea as well. Our vacation time went by so quickly; we sure are planning to go back and staying a little bit longer next time.

If you are looking for a place to stay in Loreto, this is definitely a must take in consideration home.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The casa is in a great location with the lap pool being steps away from the back gate and a lunch/dinner location being steps out the front door. (cash only for that particular restaurant, a handy bit of information since we didn't know and were scrounging for cash at the end.) The owners of the house are very responsive and helpful. It was a great stay and a comfortable place!

a great place

  • 5 of 5

We were staying the casa in late Jan thru the middle of Feb. We had a wonderful trip and the Casa met all of our expectation. The beds were really comfortable and the king size was very nice.

The location was perfect. Quiet and great views of the mountains and beach.

We were only two people but this would be a great place for two couples. The second bedroom is upstairs with its own large bathroom and plenty of privacy.. We used the BBQ often and it worked great. Our meals out on the second floor patio were really nice during sunsets.

The Casa has great bathrooms, large with double sinks and walk in showers in both. A nice touch are the robes that are provided in the bath area.

The only negative for some might be the televisions. There were plenty of large flat screen TV’s with one in each room but only 3 or 4 channels in English. Not a problem for us but if you were addicted to ‘back home’ stations you might be disappointed. Several CD players in different rooms were a bonus.

You will love your stay here.

1st time but definitely not the last!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, myself and another couple just returned from 5 nights in Loreto and it was far too short. Definitely returning next year for longer. The Villa is excellent and very private for both couples. The owners were vey nice nad helpful. The view of the Sea of Cortez and the mountains are spectacular both at sunrise and sunset. The villa's location is also great...close to the shops, the golf course and the pools. The golf course has a few rough spots but they are making an effort to improve and it is an excellent value and very scenic course. Check out the monthly membership rate for an unbelievable deal even if you only play 7-8 rounds. Plus it is very walkable. Great neighborhood for running or walking. Friendly and inviting. Town of Loreto is also a treat. Great restaurants and pricing. Also suggest a boat trip to Coronado Island. We can't wait to return!!!!!

I strongly recommend this place.

The Best of Loreto Bay

  • 5 of 5

This is a dream retreat for a family of 4 or a couple. The self-contained unit is stunning, immaculate, and the owners were responsive and easy to work with. The three levels gave us privacy and allowed our teenage daughters to have space--yet we all loved the communal spaces. The views are amazing, and given an intentionally dense community, this unit offers plenty of privacy. The linens are gorgeous and we appreciated the coziness of home without feeling that we were invading someone else's private residence. The pools and the beach are an easy walk away.

Don't be deterred by the minor walks. This community is planned for walking, and walks are short and lovely: a series of narrow paved walkways and courtyards.

Loreto is a great community. We had no worries about security, and enjoyed walking the town and eating out: especially Super Burro, a local family eatery open late.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental to a friend, and we look forward to returning ourselves.
