About John Mitre
We are natives from the north who have fallen in love with Baja! We hope you enjoy our Loreto get-away, its quite and an ideal locale to enjoy all the activities that southern Baja offers!
John Mitre purchased this Condo in 2013
Why John Mitre chose Loreto
Mountains, desert and the Sea of Cortez lured us to this picturesque location. We found Loreto/Nopolo to be an ideal spot to hike, bike, golf, dive, snorkel, and just the right place to sun bath and relax!

Beautiful condo located near the community pool in Nopolo.
We were there in June so we enjoyed lots of peace and quiet. It was just starting to get really hot but the AC units in bedrooms and main room work great.
Really nice outdoor BBQ grill and tables for dining on 2 upper patios. The only negative thing is that we booked this unit because the blue dot for VRBO location made it look like it was in the town of Loreto. I thought Nopolo was just the name of a resort area in town. It is not - it is 6 miles away and so you need a rental car if you want to go into town - not much else to do in Nopolo unless you golf or just want to laze around the pool all day. We were there for the scuba diving - which was just starting to get good (clear visability and warmer water temps). We highly recommend Blue Nation for diving and snorkle tours.
Yes, the summer in Loreto is fabulous, despite the heat!
Needs more light
Dishwasher doesn’t work self clean oven doesn’t work
I’ve never heard any complaints about the dishwasher from anyone previously and this renter did not inform me of any problems...
Same for the the oven’s ‘self-clean’ function... Nevertheless, I will have them checked out...
Overal property was well equipped for those wanting to cook their own meals while staying. Location is good as very close to pool. Only disappointment was finding out that there was no cable/satellite TV as advertised in amenities. Had we have known we would have to stream TV we could've have come more prepared. I do also think owner should pre-advertise that toilet paper cannot be flushed as this was at the very least inconvenient. Speaking with other owners/tenants in complex none seemed to have this problem.
Yes, I had a plumbing issue that needed repair and I had it addressed; the blockage was just outside my property so the HOA scheduled the repair.
I did ask the tenant to use TP sparingly.
I have Internet access and HDMI cables for streaming; I stopped the satellite TV last year.
Agua Viva 53 is a beautiful modern Casa and we would recommend it.
Overall the Casa was well equipped and very comfortable. We liked the proximity of the pool, close but not close enough to hear kids splashing etc.
Jennifer at Agua Viva Management was helpful at getting one of the bikes fixed! Could use a few smaller pots in kitchen and an extra towel rack in each of the bathrooms.
One surprise was the note in each bathroom telling renters not to flush toilet paper down the toilet. In fairness to future renters this problem should be fixed or clearly disclosed in VRBO amenities section.
Enjoyed the closeness of the restaurants, especially Pedro's and Pepegina's. Of course the golf was fabulous and so was the weekly rate!
We look forward to coming back next year!
What a nice experience! The property was very well maintained, with all the kitchen amenities you could ask for, a grill on the roof, and washer and dryer. The unit is steps from the pool which was wonderful! There are two places to eat/drink within a few min walk. The only complaint was that upon arrival the keys were not in the location they were supposed to be and the office was closing as we pulled up... seconds later and I'm not sure we would have been able to check in. Once we checked in we realized there was zero TP, which was awkward since we had no idea where to purchase goods until later that night. All in all we had a lovely time and would return in a heartbeat! Thanks for sharing your home!
Thanks for the review!!
The keys should have been accessible; I will contact my manager and forward your concern!
Also, I am truly sorry about the TP!!!
I though there was an ample supply!
I will see to it that the paper products are all there!
a nice 2 brm in a fabulous place, easy cleaning, access to local ammenities incl Golf course!
this is a nice 2 bedroom unit. The best refer I have ever experienced...water and ice maker was excellent. Toaster, blender, microwave, propane stove and kitchen dishes etc. were excellent. It is a 3 floor unit...the top patio, nicely furnished w table and chairs, 2nd level master bedroom and large patio incl washer and dryer and another nice table and chairs set up, and main level with front and back door secure patios (no foliage to worry about watering, etc.) The only inconvenience for us as we like to read, was there was only one reading lamp and it was in the master bedroom, all fixtures are high ceiling. It is very close to the pool and that was quite nice. Great social afternoons with other vacationers to share experiences, where to and not to go, etc. And of course, the fish stories!!
I'll get those reading lamps in the bedrooms asap!
Loreto Bay Resort is situated between the Sierra de la Gigantic mountains and the Sea of Cortez. The resort is 7 miles from the charming and rustic fishing town of Loreto.
