About the property

The Sea of Cortez beach egress is directly off the front steps of our Casa. View our YouTube Video titled 'Walk to the Beach' found below in 'Links to more information' and see for yourself. Enjoy unobstructed views of the Sea of Cortez to the east and exceptional Sierra de La Giganta Mountain views to the west from your private upper 'Margarita' terrace. The authentic Mexican Village of Loreto center is a quick 5 minute drive by car or 15 minute (+/-) walk down the beach to the malecon. We are confident that you will be very pleased with our Casa and the established Costa Loreto neighborhood with its beautifully landscaped cactus gardens, palm trees and shaded pergola and palapa style patios.

Just a few feet from the Sea of Cortez, you will discover La Casa de Ensueno, the perfect place to stay in Loreto for relaxation and for exploration of Baja California Sur. Between the soaring peaks of the Sierra de La Giganta Mountains and the beautiful azure Sea of Cortez, is the soul stirring historic Mexican fishing village of Loreto. Our Casa is situated within easy walking distance to the boat harbor, malecon, banks, restaurants, shopping and Loreto Village Center where you will find the Church.

La Casa de Ensueno is perfect for travelers who do not want the typical hotel atmosphere. The tasteful Mexican accommodations and decor will make you feel very comfortable and relaxed during your stay. Soon, you will find yourself gazing at beautiful sunrises over the Sea of Cortez and sunsets over the Sierra de la Giganta mountain range. As the sky casts its stunning colors against the Isla Coronado and Isla Carmen hillsides and the mountain ranges of the Sierra de la Giganta, you will soon fall deep under the spell of Loreto.

La Casa de Ensueno is a two story spacious property that offers two separate and private living quarters, La Ventana (2 bedroom / 2 bathroom with ~2900 sq ft including outdoor living areas) and El Jardin (2 bedroom / 1 bathroom with ~750 sq ft). The property also has a 1200 sq ft garage named La Giganta for secure inside boat and auto storage that is available upon advance request for an additional fee.

The colorful second floor living quarters named La Ventana has a full kitchen with dishwasher, two large master bedrooms with King Size beds and back balcony access through sliding glass doors, two bathrooms with showers, family room, living room with full size sofa sleeper, and spacious dining room. La Ventana includes private access to the large covered front porch with comfortable bar top height table and chairs, chaise lounge, and authentic Mexican equipale table and chairs. In addition, you will have private access to the roof top 'Margarita' terrace that provides unobstructed views of the Sea of Cortez to the east and exceptional Sierra de La Giganta Mountain views to the west. From La Ventana's large front covered porch, roof top 'Margarita' terrace, and from several of the interior living spaces, you will have stunning views of the Sea of Cortez and Isla Coronado and Isla Carmen hillsides and the Sierra de la Giganta Mountain range.

Each of the two separate and private living quarters of this authentic colorful Mexican Casa can be rented individually by the day (5 day minimum), week or by the month. The entire Casa, Outdoor Living Spaces, & Garage (~4,800 sq ft) is also available for longer term periods dependent upon availability.

About Bert & Terri Ferguson

Bert and Terri are active scuba divers, sport fisherman, hikers, mountain bikers and off road enthusiasts. Overall, we are adventurous and have a great love and appreciation for the outdoors!

Bert & Terri Ferguson purchased this house in 2005

Why Bert & Terri Ferguson chose Loreto

In Loreto Baja California Sur, we found a region with a rich and vibrant history. Loreto was the original capital of all the Californias over 300 years ago. It was established in 1697 by the explorer Juan Maria Salvatierra, a Jesuit priest. You can see evidence of this history in the Missions, municipal buildings and the hearts and souls of the Loretanos.

Loreto is a natural playground for anyone who loves the outdoor life. Its azure, clear waters and tranquil coves provide scuba divers and snorkelers unparalleled underwater beauty and an abundance of sea life. Near the islands, the waters provide sportsmen with perhaps the greatest fishing in the world, with record catches of sailfish, tuna and dorado. The islands are easily visited by boat and such a trip will no doubt include sightings of sea lions basking in the sun on rocky coasts and dolphins leaping across the bow wave of the boat.

Sea kayakers glide through the warm waters of Loreto’s bays to camp at remote beaches and sleep under the stars.

For those who are more land-bound adventurous, the Sierra de la Giganta’s provides many opportunities for mountain biking, horseback riding trails and hiking over ancient trails used for hundreds of years.

What makes this house unique

Our Casa is ~50 feet from the beach and ocean, with easy access directly off the front steps of the property. The Village oceanfront malecon is walking distance from the Casa and is an ideal place for an afternoon stroll; or in the early morning, when the offshore islands appear like floating rocks in the Sea of Cortéz. The locals say that this is “where the mountains come to swim.”

Friendly,, safe, clean and, affordable

Our Casa de Ensueno two week vacation was what a person who gets to break free every couple years would like. Watching the sunrise from the front deck with a great view to the ocean, was a view worth paying for.

The neighborhood is quiet at night and the municipal police patrol the area regularly. The bike ride and walk are both quick to the marina and local shopping. Lots of quiet beach walk time and the cruise ships only come in once per week. Our local fishing guide, Xochitl (Eugene) is an excellent guide and knowledgeable fisherman with quality equipment. His boat has a washroom and bimini top ( Ex-Pac Marine 613-114-6826). We were happy with our fishing with a great selection to eat back in northern Alberta.

Local vendors don't push sales and there is a great selection in many vendors. We noticed that virtually no one smoked. If we had to comment on one thing with regard to our temporary home, we would request screens on all four deck doors. Being a northern Albertan, we were hoping to avoid mosquitos at night.

“My Mother and I stayed at La Casa De Ensueno Jan 14 to Jan 22 2017 . After arriving easily from the Loreto Airport by taxi(15 mins ) we met up with the property manager ,who like all the local people in Loreto , was very lovely ! We followed her to the Casa and she gave us a little tour of the home and also showing us where the kayaks and bikes were . The home is

very spacious and has two large bedrooms with very comfy king size beds. Mom and I felt a bit lavish (which was fine ) since we each had our own living room and bathroom as the home is set up so very well for more guests . The “WOW” moment was when we saw how close we were to the beach . 60 yards and one can be launching the kayaks for a leisurely paddle along the fabulous coast of Loreto . The Casa is fully equipped and tastefully decorated . There is a full library of DVDs (we had not time to watch movies ) and plenty of good books .

The comfy leather couches (in both sides of the home ) allowed Mom and I to “chill “ as we planned our next adventure.

We walked every day to downtown Loreto along the beach . It is a lovely walk and took us about 15 minutes . We decided not to rent a car because we easily called a taxi back to the house if we were too full after dinner or just walked back during the afternoon . Our routine was eat breakfast at the Casa on the spacious patio overlooking the incredible views of Isla Del Carmen and the Sea of Cortez .

Dinner was always in Loreto because the food in the many restaurants was very good . Fresh fish and seafood galore ! Wonderful typical Mexican fare . Pasta .. you name it ....

Too many to name but I do not think you can go wrong with the food anywhere according to what we sampled and speaking to other visitors.

Loreto is a lovely small town where Mom and I felt completely at ease . The local people are friendly and helpful and we never ,ever felt unsafe anywhere we walked .

There is no pressure to buy anything in any shop you walk into . Even the tour companies did not try to push anything on you . Many residents speak English, particularly in the restaurants. The food is not expensive and one can have a fantastic seafood meal for two people for 25 USD ... seriously ! The new Malecon (seaside walk zone ) along the main street

is very nicely done and has a great pier that one can wonder out along ,ending in an amazing bronze of a group of sea lions (worth a picture for sure ) ....

As a bit of a nervous traveler in new areas ,Loreto gave me
