Photos and Description of the Colonia Zaragoza vacation house rental

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 3000 sq.ft. Spanish colonial, heated pool, deluxe amenities

[NOTE: Due to a glitch in VRBO's currency exchange policy, the rates shown on this listing may not be accurate. Our rental rate is $600 CAD or $450 USD per night. Feel free to contact us for clarification by scrolling down to the "Owner" box and hitting "Send Email." Thanks!]

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 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.

Artfully detailed, the 3,000-square-foot casa comfortably accommodates three couples plus one or two young children in three large bedrooms, two of which have a king bed and ensuite bath. The third bedroom has a queen and a double bed. Cots and cribs can be supplied for children, as well as high chair and other requirements.

The casa takes full advantage of its magnificent setting on a remote shore of the Sea of Cortes. French doors from the living, dining 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 paddleboard right in front of the house and get ready for amazing encounters with sea and bird life --- truly an eco-travel dream.

The casa is the perfect setting for family gatherings and celebrations (the owners recently married their daughter here on the beach). The big sunny kitchen is fully equipped for home-cooked or catered meals, and the dining table seats 12. There's no need to leave the property, but you really should. There's so much to see and do around the town. 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.

New in 2016: A 4-seat Jeep Wrangler is available for getting around town (not for the highway). You just pay the gas.

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.

If you are a large group, please ask the owner about adding the next-door guesthouse to your rental. Just completed this fall, one-bedroom Casita Verde has a king bed and double sofabed, gourmet kitchen, pergola-shaded view deck and all the comforts of Casa La Playa but smaller!

If rates appear in CAD and you want USD, try visiting homeaway (same listing # 728724) and USD should show. Alternately, request rates from owner. (Standard rate for Casa La Playa i s $450 USD per day; Casita Verde rents separately for $200 USD.)

Minimum stay: four days. Maximum guests: six adults and up to two children.
