Green resort in Loreto
This is a very unique property created and maintained by Johannes and Linda for the minimum in carbon footprint and the most possible in comfort and a novel vacation experience. So if you're looking for an escape to a remote, quiet, non-touristy, green eco-resort, this is it. The owners live on site with their trusty dog Teddy. They're very responsive and accommodating. The 4 casita mini-resort is gated and very private, offers a solar heated pool which is amazing since it's in the middle of nowhere, basically! The units are very well designed with high ceilings, kitchen, two bedrooms and two baths and a great roof-top deck. The solar panels provide some cover if you need some shade. We would have liked an arrangement of chairs and maybe a type of a propane fire pit up there to enjoy the deck even more. I did do yoga up there one morning and it's perfect for that. It can get a little windy but the deck wasn't too bad since it has a railing all around. The owners allow pets so that's great. This is a remote site and takes a while to get there once you leave town. As the owners suggest, it is wise to get your groceries in town and you'll be glad you did! Bring everything for guac and margaritas. Get ice, more than you think you need. One disappointment was that on the website, this property was advertised with a hot tub which is always one of my must haves. Well, the hot tub is a cold plunge because the owners discovered that the solar heater required to keep a hot tub hot rusts and has to be replaced within 6 months. Not sure if they've taken hot tub off the list of amenities but that would probably be a good thing. Not everyone needs one, but I like to have that option. They have 6 or maybe more kayaks and we did set out to the island with a couple friends, packed a lunch and had a nice 5 mile round trip kayak adventure. Morning is best and we left a little late so it was a workout getting there, but worth it, took us an hour and 20 minutes. On the way back it took only about 55 minutes. There are some trails to do hikes on in this National Park, but watch out for rattlesnakes, we almost stepped on one. And don't plan on using the eco-toilet out there. It was nasty. You'll just have to squat somewhere if you need to. We drove into town usually every day and that was an event unto itself. Very bumpy primitive road in places. Plan on encountering livestock, horses, cows, goats and lots of turkey vultures. Overall, unique adventure! Thanks Kuehls!
This was an excellent choice. The hosts were welcoming and had good information. The casita was a perfect getaway with beautiful surroundings. I enjoyed taking the kayaks out from the beach.
Our five nights at the Casitas were amazing. Flocks of pelicans, dolphins, seals, song birds, stark views, clear deep Jade waters, sunrises and stunning sunsets, just to name a few of the unbelievable experiences we had right from our front patio. Mornings were spent doing yoga on the rooftop with a 360 degree view of the mountains and the sea. Exceptional!
Although the Casitas are truly isolated and a 15-20 minute drive into town, it’s what makes staying here unique.
The bed was very comfortable, the layout very nice, and the kitchen adequately appointed. My only suggestions would be some light weight curtains in the bedroom to shut out the sun which comes in at 5:30 in the morning. We just got up and went to bed early, but there is no way to block the sun except to pull down metal shades which would make me feel uncomfortably closed in. Because of being off the grid, the shower is a bit underwhelming, but again, sufficient and it wouldn’t keep me from coming back.
We kyaked out to Coronado Island spending the day of one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever been on. The color of the water was stunning.
Our hosts were very friendly and gave suggestions of hikes and restaurants. They dropped off two books about the local are which was very nice.
We stayed in the green casita which has an unobstructed view of the ocesn with complete privacy. I highly recommend it, if you can get it.
If isolation, quiet, nature, and a slow pace are what you are looking for then the Casitas would be a perfect choice.
An amazing place

Beautiful Isolated Resort
Enjoyed our visit. Accommodations were very clean and well appointed. Owners live on site and were very helpful and responsive during the booking process. La Picazon Restuarant just up the road is one of the best restaurants in all of Baja - family operation and the food is excellent and delivered with personal service - unfortunately only open until 6PM. They cooked the Yellowtail we caught on a local panga fishing trip. Only negative is that the beautiful compound is located about 20 minutes north of town on a dirt road - no 4WD needed but it helps - beach is also rocky which is somewhat typical in Baja.
