Enjoy the best of Loreto Bay in this beautiful Mexican Villa just steps from the beach. Ideally located in a resort community with golf, tennis, swimming and hotel pool bar overlooking the Sea of Cortez.
You can swim, kayak, fish and snorkel to see a colorful array of marine life. Or just choose a book from the community center's library and relax under a beach front palapas with a margarita.
The villa has an inner courtyard with a soothing fountain, painted tilework as well as other architectural details that capture the essence of Mexico.

I love swimming, kayaking and snorkeling in the Sea of Cortez and Loreto Bay has the perfect climate to do this!
I live in San Francisco, but always look forward to my trips with family and friends to Loreto Bay, where its sunny and warm and my neighbors enjoy Loreto Bay's beauty as much as I do.
Christina Crawford purchased this villa in 2007
I learned about Loreto Bay from some friends who also built a home here.
Absolutely love the villa in Nopolo. What a great villa...had everything we needed. Beautifully decorated, very comfortable...a perfect home away from home. So close to the beach and pool and there were amazing restaurants just around the corner with very healthy and excellent tasting food and many other great restaurants within walking distance. So easy to get to from the airport and a very friendly and safe feeling community. And town was just minutes away for when we wanted to go shopping. Recommend a boat trip to Coronado Island...a fun trip. I couldn't have been happier with the accommodations and ease of the setting up the stay! Highly recommend this Villa!
Loreto Bay/Nopolo is hidden treasure. So beautiful, reasonably priced golf, great food, friendly people. ...we caught many yellowtail with Blue Anchor/ captain Abrams. ..all dealings with Christina couldn't have been better. We'll be back next year , hopefully for a longer stay..
Casa is as pictured and described. Close to beach and pools in quiet resort neighborhood. Felt very safe. Recommend renting a car for sightseeing off property and going into town for a real Mexican experience. Christina was very helpful and answered our questions promptly.
The house was perfect for our family of 4. The kids loved the twin beds and their own tv was a treat! The master suite was great. I didn't expect it to be separated as much as it is from the main floor but it all worked out. We had plenty of space to do what we wanted and thanks for the wifi, that helped me keep in touch! The kitchen had what we needed. The community is great and we used at least one of the lap pool, owners pool or hotel pool everyday. Beach access is easy and convenient. We loved walking to the Corazon cafe in the morning for a coffee or smoothie. We also visited other restaurants in the village, all easily accessible on foot. The grounds crew keeps all of the sidewalks looking amazing and everyone is friendly and ready with a smile. My kids loved practicing their new Spanish words with everyone they passed.
All of us, 2 adults and 3 kids (2 teenagers among them) just loved the place and the whole neighborhood of Nopolo! We have been to Hawaii, Costa Rica, Cancun, Caribbean, Puerto Vallarta, but this time topped it off in overall experience for us. We also had a car (although not really needed, as the area has everything in the walking distance) and explored the surroundings - Villa Palmar (gorgeous beach, you would have to come close to sunset though and use their restaurant to avoid being charged for using it) and Loreto itself, in which we only liked a few blocks between the Malecon and the Mission. But if you are staying longer than a few days, then there are fantastic beaches north and south from it. Christina's place is very spacious, has 2 floors, a little courtyard with a fountain, a huge sundeck with bbq and a sink upstairs, nice furniture, 2 bathrooms, 2 TVs (we hardly watched it), WiFi, and a full kitchen we used all the time. There are 2 food/convinience stores literally across the street, open daily, good veggies, fruits, milk and cheese, tortillas, frozen Baja seafood, etc., and 7 restaurants in the walking distance. The snorkeling near the rock only 1/4 mile away was great, so was swimming in the shallow sea with very small waves. The water was still 75-76F on Thanksgiving weekend, very clear. The beach itself was nice, but not as wide and the sand was more brownish than white. We used the courts (tennis stadium), 2 miles away, as well as the gorgeous heated swimming lap pool, only 150 feet away. The landscaping, homes architectural designs, view of the mountains and the sea, quiet and peaceful atmosphere, safety/security and absence of crowds were remarkable. But if you are a party type, this place is not for you. In this case, Vallarta or Cabo would be better. But for us it was exactly what we needed. Hope to be back someday!
