Baja California Sur House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 2-6)

Welcome to


YOU are invited to the most beautiful and serene destination in Baja California, Mexico. This luxurious home is located in Founders Village next to the hotel just a few miles south of the historic town of Loreto and just a few steps away from the sandy beach of Loreto Bay. We now have two KAYAKS at the house for our guests to go explore the wonders of Loreto Bay. Make sure you bring your camera.

This European traditional style home is designed to ensure you reside in the comfort and luxury you deserve on your dream vacation. The furnishings and fixtures have been selected to surround you in the wonders and charm of fine Baja architecture. Mexican tile, deep hinged windows, wrought iron stairways and beautiful brickwork are just a few of the many eye catching features. All rooms have heating, air-conditioning, ceiling fan, and wireless broadband.

Upon arriving enter our home to a private interior courtyard with water fountain feature; enjoy your morning coffee or tea under the covered patio. Open one of the three sets of French doors to the fully equipped kitchen, dining room which seats six, family room with Flat screen TV, Queen Sleeper leather couch and love seat, computer desk, wifi and a large selection of videos and games. Mexican tile flooring and rugs. Our house has been decorated mainly with art and pottery pieces from the local stores here in Loreto Bay. The first Master Bedroom en suite comes with an extremely comfortable King size bed. We have an abundance of pillows, sheets, blankets and towels. Soak in the oversize tub or wash away your worries in the large walk-in shower. Luxurious Bath robes provided. The two sinks are very well stocked, hair dryers, curling iron etc.

On this first level you will find the laundry room with washer and dryer. The third toilet and a large closet containing swim equipment, beach folding chairs, umbrella and ice chest for you to use at the beach. Plus many extra household items.

Sunbathe upstairs on the loungers on the Terrace level. Cook your favorite meal on the outdoor bar b que. We had a local chef come prepare, serve a meal for us and some guests on our spacious covered lighted patio. Plenty of seating. Tons of FUN! Early morning or dusk is the best time to really appreciate being up in the view tower. Whether you take a cup of coffee, glass of wine, margarita or cerveza take in the breathtaking views of the Sea of Cortez and the Sierra de la Giganta mountain range. If you are a stargazer you will just want to lay out all night and look up at the sky. The clear dark skies illuminate so many stars it is an incredible site. In the day stroll through these Village homes and admire the beautiful exotic landscaping and water fountains. Cars are only permitted on the main road.

Lastly, if you can make the effort to get up early you will not be disappointed to observe the morning sunrises. Walk the beach and enjoy the tranquil waters. We have seen some amazing ocean life here .Make sure you bring your camera to capture a magical moment.

Our house guest will have access to all hotel amenities including swim-up bar/pool, kiddie pool, jacuzzi, small gym.

There is a second swimming pool with jacuzzi in the Founders Village area exclusively for Loreto Bay homeowners and guests. There is a now a phenomenal LAP POOL. One of the best services here is to have a relaxing massage in the privacy of the house.

Recently opened is a small grocery store, A Wine Bar owned and operated by a homeowner, A coffee shop , a tour guide store where you can book to go on a hiking trip,scuba diving, Fishing, a trip to one of the picturesque islands, see cave paintings or rent a bike or ATV.

The town of Loreto is unique in the fact that it is a small fishing town with lots of history.

It has been a well kept secret for many years and when you visit you feel like you have stepped back in time. The pace of life is nice and slow and relaxing just what you want when on vacation. Taking the time in the day to appreciate life. There is plenty of shopping and excellent dining to be done in the cobblestone streets of Loreto and a visit to its famous Mission established in 1697 is a must. Jacques Cousteau called the Sea of Cortez 'The worlds Aquarium'.The New York Times listed Loreto #8 on their list of places to visit worldwide.

Yes, this location is relaxing but you can also have a lot of fun! You will not want to leave.There are numerous activities including world class sport fishing, whale watching, Glass bottom boat rides, kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling, biking, hiking and a stunning 18 hole golf course that wraps itself around Loreto Bay. Loreto has its own international airport with regular flights to and from the USA. The airport is located only a few miles from Loreto Bay. There are plenty of taxis or rental car agencies to assist you with your travel needs.We have a fantastic property manager on site who will make sure your stay is enjoyable and can help with booking tours, rental car or restaurants reservations.Security is there 24/7

We now have a beautiful Pac n Play crib for anyone who has a small child.

For flight information to Loreto airport go to Alaska airlines website or contact them at 1-800-252-7522 .

Please don't hesitate to contact me by email or phone I will do everything I can to make sure you have a GREAT VACATION!

This was my families first trip to Baja and we couldn't have had a better time. Not to repeat word for word what other reviews said: it's suffice to say that Casa Jillian is a dream. The house is stunning and huge. You walk in through massive carved wooded doors to your own private outdoor garden and fountain, filled with a blue flowering tree that is visited by brilliantly colored birds. Looking out onto this garden and court yard area is the kitchen/dining room/tv area that is beautiful and equipped with tons of DVDs, and leather couches--one of which turns into a bed. Next door to this room (with a separate entrance) is the main floor bedroom that has a massive bathroom, shower and soaking tub large enough to play Marco Polo in. Beyond the bedroom on the main level is a another half bath. Up stairs on the second floor is the other bedroom that has an identically huge bathroom with Olympic sized tub and shower. The second level has a very large patio area and grill. Up the spiral staircase to the look out tower and you'll find a view that will take your breath away.

We spent our time evenly divided between the pool at Nopolo (that is the name of this development area), the hotel pool next door and the beach. We were there for the crazy manta ray season where the jump out of the water by the hundreds making a popcorn sound that is truly surreal to witness. The kayaks were great for this, and for watching sunrises.

We went into town every night and found Orlando's to be the best. Don't miss out on the ice cream next door. Dinner is served late and if you don't ask for the check--"la cuenta, pro favor?"--You'll be there for hours.

Don't miss out on Loreto and Casa Jillian--this place really is an oasis in the desert.

WONDERFULL! Exactly what I was hoping for.

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt the highlight of our trip to the Baja. The time spent with my daughter in your wonderful

Casa in Loretto Bay wowed us from the moment we turned into the property

and only got better as we opened the door to the courtyard of Casa Jillian

We immediately felt comfortable and right at home.

The location was ideal and the only negative was that I could not have spent more time there

I know how to fix that on our next trip

Your instructions and guidance were right on the money, and made the

transition seamless

Clean as a whistle and beautifully maintained

I'll be back!!

We have been fortunate to travel a bit, and this may be our new #1 spot! Casa Jillian was the perfect place for our family of 3 (including an 8 year old) and my 70-ish parents. All amenities made the stay very "easy" and there are no words to describe how beautiful both the location and the house are! We will be back (yearly hopefully):))

Spectacular - Can't Wait To Return!!

  • 5 of 5

In a word, wow! It's hard to sum up into words how incredible this entire experience was, thanks largely to Kathy and the wonderful stay we had at Casa Jillian.

From the moment one drives into the Loreto Bay resort, one is struck by the beauty, craftsmanship, and attention to detail that is evidenced everywhere. The homes are beautiful, the grounds are exquisite, and the entire feeling is one of Olde World Mexican charm combined with New World elegance and beauty.

Casa Jillian is a beautiful, and extremely well-appointed home. Kathy has thought of everything, down to beautiful glass and stemware, whole bean coffee grinder, Panini maker, kayaks, wonderful linens and plush bathrobes in both master baths, and too many other amenities to list here. Every time I thought 'oh, I wish they had such and such', I would open a drawer or look on the shelf, and there it was!

Prior to arriving, Kathy was a wonderful source of information, and the rental could not have gone smoother. In addition, Arturo, the on-site property manager, is a fantastic person to work with. He is extremely helpful, and always available whenever needed.

The property is situated mere steps away from the water, and the views from the viewing tower are phenomenal. Another amenity we took great advantage of were the house kayaks available right on the beach. It could not have been any more convenient than to simply unlock the kayaks and drag them right into the water, which we did many times during our weeklong stay.

The beds were extremely comfortable. The individual air-conditioners and fans in each room worked perfectly, and were much appreciated.

The home is beautifully decorated with many artistic touches throughout, and comfortable, yet high-end furnishings. Relaxing to the tinkling fountain in the courtyard was a daily treat as we sipped margaritas and watched the sunsets over the Gigante mountain range.

All in all, a wonderful experience & we hope to come back soon!

Wonderful Stay in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

If you would like to relax, take in the beauty of the ocean and wildlife and enjoy kayaking, this is the place for you. Casa Jillian is steps from the beach with an amazing private view from the tower and mid-level deck. The house is very well taken care of and the flora and fauna around the complex are breathtaking. Everything is very clean, neat, and you always feel safe with the 24 hr security. Having a few grocery items ready when we arrived helped with our first few days and getting to know our way around the small village. We would highly recommend this home for a private, romantic, relaxing getaway. Excellent homeowners who took the time to make sure all of our needs were met. We are sold!
