Casa Maria is in a fully secure development right near the beach. We have 24 hour security. We are away from the business of Downtown Loreto yet can get there in 5-10 minutes by car. There is a great beach front cafe with pool side service, daily palapa usage, kayak and snorkel usage right out in front- what more could you ask for? There is also Loreto's only championship 18 hole golf course. Take your golf clubs and walk to the Clubhouse for a round of golf at the Troon championship golf course, designed by David Duval. Our guests have special green fees and you have no RESORT FEE.

The casa was newly constructed in 2007. It is 2100 sq feet, including beautifully appointed rooms with a fully landscaped interior courtyard with a fountain. It is available for rentals for 3 night minimums, or by the week or month(s).The casa is 800 feet to the beach and about 500 feet from the community pool. Our entire casa faces the West towards the mountains with a golf course and water view.

Access to all resort amenities including pools, bar and cafe, palapa usage, poolside lounge chairs, kayaks, snorkel gear, championship 18 hole golf course, and tennis club.

The home has three keyless entrances into the home and courtyard. Exquisite details such as handcrafted Saltillo tile flooring, top of the line cabinetry with hand forged iron detailing, towel bars, artisan wooden french doors and windows.

There are many restaurants, grocery stores, banks, rental car agencies and cabs available. The Town of Loreto is about 10 minutes away by car and has a long seawall along which there are numerous restaurants and bars.

Loreto is in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur, catering mostly to travelers, with frequent flights arriving at Loreto International Airport. Many of the Tourists enjoy fishing in “pangas”. Local restaurants will even prepare the daily catch of the tourists. Loreto has an excellent museum alongside the active historic Mission.

Why Colleen Murphy chose Loreto Municipality

I choose Loreto because of its extraordinary beauty (a mix of Arizona and Hawaii), it's terrific community, and uncommon serenity. Alaska whales even like it. They birth their babies in the warm waters!

Everything was clean and in good working order. Casa is very close to the store, coffee shop, restaurants, pools and the beach. We had a couple minor maintenance issues in the beginning of our stay and they were taken care of ASAP by the property manager. The only thing I would like to see added is some lighting by the bbq for cooking dinners. Otherwise it was a fantastic place to stay at and we will rent it again for our next trip. No complaints on this rental at all!! Thank you...Joe & Amy

                                                                  This was our 4th time staying in Loreto Bay, but the first time in this particular home. There were a couple of issues (air conditioner, television, & plumbing), but they were dealt with in a very timely fashion. Thank you Colleen and Dahir! There were only 4 of us, so the home was extremely spacious, comfortable, and well equipped. In the future I will choose a home a little closer to the pool, but that's just a personal choice (I'm a bit of a pool psycho). Overall, this house fit our needs perfectly:)

                                                                  Owner's Response:


                                                                  There were 3 issues during the guest stay,

                                                                  all of which were promptly addressed by my property manager Dahir.

                                                                  This is what he described:

                                                                  1.) The capacitor of one of 4 air conditioners burned out and required replacement,

                                                                  2.) Plumbing backed up due to excess paper products flushed,

                                                                  3.) One of 4 televisions lost the signal. The telecommunication provider was called to re-set the system.

                                                                  Have no fear, Casa Marie awaits your visit and is well maintained. She undergoes systematic inspections. See you soon.

                                                                  Great locale and views

                                                                  Rob T.

                                                                  This is.great location within the development and has a great view of the mountains and the golf course. Look forward to returning!

                                                                  great house and awesome location

                                                                  terry m.

                                                                  This is a three bedroom house near a golf course, pools and a beach. We really enjoyed our week stay. We snorkeled, fished, golfed and much more. Would definitely come back.

                                                                  The villa was very clean

                                                                  Ruth C.

                                                                  We were very happy with our stay in this condo. I was a little disappointed that we did not have a beach view but, was well compensated by the view of the hills and mountains. The villa is located out of town and was great for just relaxation. We found a little cove just passed the inn that was fun for snorkeling. If you are a scuba diver, save your money. There is no reef and not much to see. The villa was furnished with linens except there were no wash cloths and bring your own beach/pool towels. The ground keepers and staff were very friendly. I would stay here again.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Dear Future guests,

                                                                  Wash cloths should be provided.

                                                                  I will check in with my property manager, Dahir.

                                                                  Please note, I specifically chose a home facing West so that I could better enjoy sunset views. The sun rises early in Loreto throughout the year. Not many of us are up to enjoy the spectacle.

                                                                  Please come visit Casa Maria.

                                                                  This is a beautiful house tucked away from the main street, yet easy walking access to all the amenities of the community as well as nearby resort. Interior layout is great for family or group of adults, plenty of space with nice common areas.
