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.

Absolutely wonderful home! We couldn’t have asked for better location.
This home is truly amazing. So comfortable! It really felt like we were staying at our friends home! So close to the beach, easy town access! Comfortable beds! Everything was so great! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.
The place was perfect for us + our 2 toddlers (2&5 yr olds). We have stayed in many Inspirato properties and this casa is pretty comparable to those. Amenities were very well thought out from bicycles, beach bag, sunscreen, bug repellent to snorkeling equipment. Super clean and the manager was more than accommodating. The owner truly cares about ALL the details and makes sure you are well informed. This was our first visit to Loreto and we will be booking this casa again. Thank you!!
Our family of five had an amazing experience in this well-equipped "chica" home. The furnishings were of high quality, the decor felt fresh and inviting, and there were plenty of linens and towels (including beach towels). We loved having a well-stocked kitchen, the brand new bar-b-que, and the patio furniture both upstairs and downstairs were so nice we spent most of our time outdoors. The host was quick with her responses, and was very helpful in providing tips for our stay. The beach is a short walk away which is delightful to enjoy the amazing sunsets and sunrises. Loreto Bay is a charming community filled with friendly retirees. There is a small market, restaurants, and a cafe within walking distance, and the bikes the owner provides make an excellent way to travel through the community. Especially for the pools within the property. The owner was kind enough to let us use their snorkeling equipment, which came in handy, as you can snorkel right in front of the nearby Loreto Bay Hotel. We had a fantastic adventure and highly recommend the home to other families. Since there are two master bedrooms, one downstairs and one upstairs, it would also make an excellent place to stay for multiple couples.
The reason for the four-star review was a result of the ongoing construction of the large buildings adjacent, and maintenance activities of other owners during our stay. We left for most parts of the day to avoid those inconveniences, and loved having a reason to explore the surrounding areas.
If you enjoy staying on the beach, or taking beach day trips, we highly recommend bringing your own beach chairs and umbrella. There are no places to rent these within the community or the town of Loreto, and missed have those items during our days exploring Baja.
Baja Sur stay
We enjoyed our stay. House nicer than we imagined. All amenities needed and more! Already planning a return trip.
Casa and Loreto Bay were very nice
For the benefit of the reader my wife and I travel extensively and have stayed at more than a dozen VRBO and other owner rented vacation properties. Accordingly, we have developed certain expectations regarding our future experiences.
First, I cannot say enough regarding the responsiveness of our hosts when something unexpected arose. Jennifer was very helpful and responsive when assistance was needed. The bedding, towels and incidentals were great. The kitchen was adequately equiped, albeit with somewhat piecemeal and aging utensils and cookware.
Both upper and lower patios were fantastic, with high quality furniture.
Perhaps our only constructive criticism is that the finishes (floor tile and woodwork) and the interior furnishings (particularly the bedroom furnishings) are in need of repair or upgrading.
All in all, we very much enjoyed our stay in Loreto Bay for the month that we were there, due in large part to the graciousness of our hosts.
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.
