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.

Artfully detailed, 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, 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. 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, and the dining table seats up to 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.

A Jeep Wrangler with stick shift is available for getting around town. It is not for highway outings. You just pay the gas. It seats 4 (5 in a pinch).

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. Completed in 2016, the 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 (same listing # 728724) and rates should appear in USD. Alternately, request rates from owner. Standard rate for Casa La Playa i s $495 USD per day (the website may list a different price because of currency fluctuation, but $495 is firm. Message us privately for clarification.

Casita Verde rents separately for $200 USD. The casita is strictly an add-on rental for groups staying in the casa who need more room. It sleeps 2 to 3.

Minimum stay: four days. Maximum guests: six adults. Please speak with us about our kids' policy.
