About Karen Vaillancourt
Our home is Victoria BC. I am an artist and have some paintings in our Casa! My husband Dave is self employed. We call Loreto Bay 'our Paradise' and hope you feel that way too!!
Karen Vaillancourt purchased this House in 2008
Why Karen Vaillancourt chose Loreto
We fell in in love with Loreto the minute we saw this 'Soul stirringly Beautiful' place, a place we hope to retire to, the community feel is amazing, and you feel like you are part of a huge family. The Baja is a safe and beautiful place to be, and the town of Loreto is quite simply Charming. The Golf course is in a beautiful setting, snorkelling is at your doorstep, as is kayaking and paddle boarding/
What makes this House unique
We wanted a Casa Bohemia because it afforded us more space, when you walk through the door and hear the fountain, it feels like Mexico and feels like home. We chose our location for a home because of it's proximity to EVERYTHING, we are a few minutes from the beach, the pools, the golf course, restaurants and a minute to the grocery store, the hotel and entertainment. It is nice to be in the central area, a very short walk to everything Loreto Bay has to offer. We love to be able to sit on our roof top and see the Sierra Giganta Mountains, and the golf course.

Tastefully decorated Casa!
Some are old and tired but FN 357 is tastefully decorated, very clean, has comfortable furniture, art work is hung on the walls, beautiful throw pillows are in abundance and local pottery that is functional. The kitchen was well stocked for our three month stay. The only things we brought was a knife sharpener and a lettuce spinner. Both bedrooms are huge and also tastefully decorated. The beds in both rooms were very comfy..........just like home. Lots of sheets and towels were made available. The location is very central, close to the golf course, pools, coffer shop, wine cellar and grocery store. Easy parking just one block off the Paso. Karen the owner is the BEST!. So easy to work with..........she always got back to us with in a few hours. Provided lots of information about the property and the area. Her prices are fair and reasonable. Casa Go, the property mangers are over the top amazing. They delivered water and propane for a small fee, attended quickly to any of our questions or concerns. They are located one block from FN 357. Loreto Bay is a very unique community........hard to leave and easy to return. In the community there are golf groups, a hiking group, yoga classes, a bike group, cards, library and so much more.
Beautiful, well appointed and well maintained. Owner was extremely responsive and helpful.
This unit is as nice as it appears in the photos. Having one master suite on the first floor and one on the second provides a nice level of privacy, not to mention the soothing sounds of the fountain in the private courtyard. The kitchen has all you need. The beds are comfortable. The property managers were also very easy to find made things run smoothly.
Was a great location; quite close to pools, a restaurant very close by. Quiet area.
The unit was fully equipped with most kitchen items (aside from oven mitts); there were lots of dishes and utensils, etc. The dishwasher maybe could be updated as it didn’t do a great job on the dishes. Lots of linens and towels. Could use a few light blankets as we found the covers provided on the (warm) heavy side.
All in all we had a wonderful stay here and would definitely consider renting this unit again.
family time in Loreto Bay
We had an excellent time in Loreto Bay. It was our first time visiting Loreto and it may be our new favorite Mexico spot! Karen and the property manager, Dahir, were both kind, responsive, and accommodating towards us. There were 5 of us and we had plenty of space. We loved sleeping upstairs with the doors open at night and most nights one of the kids slept outside in the hammock we brought. The climate in Loreto was perfect, we felt very safe, and loved that Loreto Bay felt much more like a community than a resort. There are several fun restaurants and a cafe in easy walking distance. The beach and pools were all easy to walk to as well. The kids loved having the bikes to get back and forth from our friends condo. We were in 4 different condos and I thought Karen's was the best (well stocked, nicely decorated, good lay out, and close to everything). I am guessing that we will be back at some point and would absolutely stay in Karen's place again!
Lovely Loreto Bay
This lovely Casa in Loreto Bay absolutely met all of our expectations. It easily accomodates two couples on two very private levels. Perfectly located within a short stroll to two pools, beach and neighbourhood restaurants. The Casa itself shows beautifully with many personal touches which is evident of Karen’s artistic talents. The community is friendly, safe and beautifully maintained. If you seek adventurous outings, you will need to rent a vehicle. We only did so twice to load up on groceries, dinner and an excursion into the mountains. We befriended a local fellow who was more than helpful with arranging a Hertz rental delivered directly as well as being returned right at Loreto Bay. Bonus!
I can’t say enough positive things about Karen. Right from my initial contact she was a wealth of information and genuinely cares for your experience at her property.
Sun deprived Canadians
Great location, very well equipped and all kinds of room for both couples.
There is kayak rentals on the beach which is a 3 minute walk from our home. A must see is a boat trip to Coronado Island, a beautiful unspoiled marine park. Of course whale watching is a must. Also fishing, you can rent boats in town for a very reasonable price.
