About Jennifer O'Brien
We are family of 4. Our kids are fluent in Spanish and we all have a love of Mexico. We stayed at Casa Allen in Loreto Bay and fell in love with the town, people, culture and what Jacques Cousteau called "The World's Aquarium". We love visiting our "Casa de Gratitud" in this wonderful World Heritage Site.
Jennifer O'Brien purchased this House in 2016
What makes this House unique
Happy hour watching the sunsets from our expansive rooftop deck. The short stumble to the beach for early morning wake ups. The huge variety of tropical fish to see around Nopolo Rock at the end of our beach. Kayaking along the shores or pelican filled estuaries through the golf course, star gazing, happy hour sunsets from the rooftop. Our beautiful courtyard and bar-open in the morning to night to enjoy perched on the mexican bar chairs.

Relaxing home away from home!
This was our first time in Loreto and really enjoyed staying in Loreto Bay. The location of the condo is great, very close to the water and loved walking over to see the sunrise in the morning. The kitchen is well stocked and were able to cook our own meals frequently. (Were there during the slow season so most restaurants were closed.)
We swam at the beach and also the community pools, both were enjoyable. Water is the perfect temperature and barely any waves.
Fernando, our home manger, was a great! He was available daily for any concerns or trips we wanted to plan.
Definitely recommend renting a car. There is no public transportation and the cabs end up costing a fortune.
We would definitely come back.
Muchas Gracias Maria! It was great having you and I'm so happy you had a comfortable and fun stay.
Great location enjoyed stay
Played a lot of golf so location close to coarse was great. Really liked the interior garden. Barbecue needs upgrading and some cooking equipment also. Very nice washrooms and bedrooms. A suggestion would be to add baskets on bikes and providing kayaks or paddle boards for guest use. Highly recommend this case.
It was nice hosting you Robert and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We'll be doing some more updating on the house this summer and are adding a new staircase and sitting area in the courtyard garden as well as a new BBQ.
We hope to host you again!
loved it great place and community!
Nopolo got our hearts very friendly, we will be back!
It was a pleasure having you at the house! Hope to host you again!
Relaxing fun in the sun
This property was amazing! Very clean, beautifully decorated, fully stocked kitchen, TV, games, books. Bedrooms and bathrooms were generously sized, beds were quite comfortable. The terrace off the master bedroom was so awesome. There is a gorgeous, tropical outdoor atrium on the ground floor, a bar off the kitchen, bicycles for your use around town. The grounds are very well kept by HOA, clean, nice landscaping, many different and fun pools. Very near the Loreto Bay Resort where you can also use their pool and palapas on the beach, as well as a restaurant and bar.
An overall fun and relaxing getaway for parents and kids alike!
A lovely home and perfect location for a great get away!
What an amazing trip. The house was beautiful, comfortable and had everything we needed. Bedrooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. The kitchen was well supplied. The courtyard, bar and upstairs terrace make such a lovely environment for relaxing and spending time with loved ones. The location is great and so much to do! Biking, walking on the beach, paddle boarding, golfing, relaxing on the beach and so much more. We would definitely recommend this property and will definitely be back ourselves.
Thank you. It was wonderful having you!
Pleasant location and neighborhood
My husband and I spent 3 weeks in this unit in Founders Neighborhood of Loreto Bay. The location is great - only about 5 miles into the town of Loreto. The whole Loreto Bay 'village' has some of it's own places to eat, small grocery markets, wine shop, etc. Security was ever-present and the grounds were maintained beautifully.
The tennis courts and tennis community are very nice. Pickle ball courts are available as well as golf. Several exercise classes like Zumba, yoga, etc are held at various times throughout the week - all very reasonable prices per class.
As for this Casa 39, it is located in the older part of the complex. We found the layout of the unit to be difficult to get comfortable in. The main floor has a 1/2 bath, bedroom with twin beds (we had pushed together for a king) with an ensuite bathroom, a separate living room/kitchen area, and an outdoor courtyard with a water fountain and various tropical plants. You had to climb a very narrow, steep, circular staircase to get up to the top floor where there is another bedroom with king bed and ensuite bathroom. The patio at this level has one small table to two people with no view and then two lounge chairs just outside the bedroom doors plus another small round table that seats 4. The upper patio has a small view of the sea but also looks directly onto the patio levels of the other 5 villas in the neighborhood. There is virtually NO privacy so renters need to be aware of this. Having the outdoor seating for 4 up on this top level also means carrying plates, drinks, food, etc up the winding staircase which is also overgrown with plantings and hard to hold onto the railing. The LR and kitchen were OK but everything needs to be updated. (We were told that there are NEW owners who were coming in right after us to update everything! That will be great for future renters!) NOTE: there are NO screens on any doors or windows. We were there in April and the mosquitoes and 'no-see-ums' were feasting on us every day. This was a major negative for us.
If we had entertained another couple with us, it would have been impossible for us to lug our suitcases up the winding circular staircase. We did not like this design at all.
BIG plus: the new owners have provided two cruiser bikes & beach towels for renter's use. THANK YOU!
All-in-all we enjoyed our stay here but it was only the two of us because of the floorpan. The dining area indoors seats 6 but we prefer to eat outdoors in this climate!
In Loreto Bay, we have a new community drop-in center 5 minute walk away, with Spanish lessons, yoga, free internet computer use, library and general chit chat Our neighborhood has a grocery store, wine bar, 3 outdoor pools, coffee/bakery cafe, l8th hole golf course restaurant and sandwich shop all within a 5 minute walk of our home. There are boats for hire from Loreto, to take you to the local islands for spectacular snorkeling and fishing. We also have terrific, safe snorkelling down our beach around Nopolo Rock. The town of Loreto (l5 minute drive) is full of wonderfully colorful, flavorful restaurants, bars and coffee houses and taco stands Local artisans share their wares in a tree-covered lane beside one of the oldest churches in Baja. Loreto town is authentically Mexican; quaint, yet manages to service visitors with grace and charm.
