[NOTE: Rates for this property are set in CAD, so Americans may see slight variations from day to day due to USD exchange fluctuations. Click on "Contact Owner," right, if you have questions.]

Casa La Playa is an architectural gem built on a stunning beach in the quiet old town of Loreto. Here you get the best of both worlds: luxurious five-star comfort inside a small gated compound with full-time caretaker, only 15 minutes' walk from the center of Loreto with its charming town plaza, 320-year-old Mission, shops and restaurants.

Included in the rental is free use of a Jeep Wrangler (stick shift) for getting around town. You just pay the gas.

The 3,000-square-foot casa comfortably accommodates three couples in three large bedrooms, two of which have a king bed and ensuite bath. The third bedroom has a queen and a double bed.

The casa takes full advantage of its magnificent setting on a remote shore of the Sea of Cortes. French doors from the living and dining rooms and bedrooms open to the deck of our full-length heated lap pool, which is steps from the beach. You can launch your kayak or paddle board right in front of the house and get ready for amazing encounters with sea and bird life. It's truly an eco-travel dream.

The casa is the perfect base for family gatherings and celebrations. The owners recently married their daughter here on the beach, and they often rent to multi-generational families for birthdays and other milestones. The big sunny kitchen is fully equipped for home-cooked or catered meals.

If your group is larger than six adults, you can add the adjacent casita, see details below.

It is no exaggeration to say that visitors just love Loreto. There's so much to see and do! Take a walking tour of the historic mission, hire a boat to go fishing, diving or island hopping, hike the sierras, visit beautiful San Javier in the sierras (by mule!) or drive 15 minutes to Loreto Bay's golf course, all of which can easily be arranged with our help. We will direct you to the best people and places (at the best prices) to ensure you get the very most out of your stay in Loreto.

Casa La Playa has high-speed WIFI, smart TV with satellite, a/c in all rooms, walk-in master closet, deluxe beddings, towels and toiletries, four bicycles and more than 1,000 square feet of outdoor decks with a full fireplace and seating area on the ground floor, a built-in BBQ dining area by the pool, and a palapa-covered outdoor living room on the second floor with gas fireplace and stunning 360-degree views of the sea, islands and mountains.

For larger groups: add Casita Verde for $200 USD/night. The deluxe one-bedroom guesthouse sleeps 2 to 3. It has a king bedroom and double sofabed in the LR, gourmet kitchen, pergola-shaded view deck and all the comforts of Casa La Playa but smaller.

The casita is not rented on its own -- it is strictly an add-on for guests who are renting the casa and need extra space.

Minimum stay: four nights. Maximum guests: 6 adults in casa, 9 in casa plus casita combined. Please speak with us about our kids' policy.

Please contact the owner with any questions and to discuss specific accommodations required, just casa or casa plus casita. The casita is only rented as an additional accommodation for casa guests. It is not a separate rental property. Rates are set in CAD due to the location of owner's bank. There will be slight variation in US rate due to exchange fluctuation. The casita may be added onto rental for additional $200 USD, plus cleaning fee and additional damage deposit as defined in contract. If you want to bring children, please discuss with owner. The casa is best suited to a maximum of 6 adult guests. Up to one more adult may be added with owner's approval only, for a surcharge of $100 per night. The casita accommodates up to 3. It is wheelchair accessible. Same no-smoking, no-pets policy as casa.

Normally the owner personally manages the property and guest services. If the owner is called away from Loreto a professional property manager will take her place, and renters will know who to expect on site at check-in.

* Deposit paid at time of booking is non-refundable. With 30 days' notice of cancellation a credit in the amount of the deposit may be applied to a future rental. This policy is firm due to the limited flights into Loreto. It is very difficult for the owner to fill canceled rentals, with the result that income is lost.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
