Why Barbara Jordan chose Loreto
This property is a rare 3/4 acre compound on the beach. Very private, safe and just far enough out of town (half mile) that the stars look close enough to touch...So safe.

"Shhh! This Has to be a Secret!"
The sky, the water, the pleasantry of the people all come together here in Loreto. And I truly hesitate to say this, for a good fisherman never gives up his "glory holes," but the casita at Fam. Jordan is simply stunning.
On our recent trip in May, owner, Barbara Jordan met us at the entrance to the villa and gave us a quick tour of the grounds. Nestled on the Sea of Cortez, as the last finished house on "gringo gulch," the property begins at the sand, climbs to the 40' emerald green pool, followed by Al and Barbara's personal residence, leading to a large open courtyard, decorated with Mexican art and tall palms. Our casita was a spacious two bedroom, with large dining table, entertainment area, kitchen, bar, and bath. Modern AC units along with fans in every area kept the desert air circulating and cool. Our own private patio featured a new gas grill and the view is spectacular. The town is a short 1/2 mile walk down the beach, but I would rent a car as there are many excellent trips to be made. Don't miss one of the oldest missions in the California's, Mision San Francisco Javier de Vigge-Biaundo or try driving down a long dirt road to lunch at the famous "La Picazon" restaurant. But owner, Al Jordan, will take you on a tour of town and let you know where and how to get started on your trip to paradise.
Great property, owned by great people. Thanks Al and Barbara, we will be back.
My stay in Loreto
Barbara and Al were great and everything met our expectations.
Hi Terry, Thanks for taking the time....
Barbara and Allen are wonderful hosts. They are there to help in any way, but respect the privacy of the guests. The house is spotless. The location is convenient. It's perfect.
I highly recommend a rental car as there are so many neighboring villages and beaches to explore.
Thankyou for taking the time to leave a review. The weather finally clicked on Spring here and I hope yours has too.
Beautiful property at the beach in Loreto!
We had a fantastic time while staying at this property in Loreto. The casita was wonderful, extremely clean, private and quiet. The pool is large and well looked after and great to swim in.
Barbara and Al are wonderful hosts! When we first arrived, Al took us on a tour of the town which really helped us understand where everything was. Al also took us on an off road tour later in the week which was the thrill of a lifetime and well worth doing if you get the chance.
We’ve been to several places in Mexico over the years and Loreto is certainly the most relaxing and friendliest place we have ever been. Don’t go expecting night life as that is limited but the restaurants were excellent and the service was great!
The relaxing slow pace of life there was a welcome change from back home.
We would highly recomend this property to anyone looking to spend time in an authentic Mexican town away from the noise and partying of places like Cabo.
Thanks again to Barbara and Al, we loved the 2 weeks we spent at your Casita!
It was beautiful and felt like home.
This was our first time to Loreto and to this location. Barb and Al are the best and have a beautiful home. The best part of our vacation was having Barb and Al as our tour guides. They made it very easy for us with directions and tours. We did the tour to Coronado Island with Francisco, he picked us up on the beach. This is a must do!! We did not make the fishing trip this time, so that will be on our list for the next visit. The Casita was very cozy and had everything you could ask for. All you need to bring is food and clothes. The people of Loreto are so friendly and the local restaurants are amazing. When you arrive plan on a trip to the mission in the hills (San Javier) sorry if i misspelled it. Be sure to have Al be your tour guide and take the Razor Buggy on the long trip. Hold on and have a blast as he will take you the off road way to the mission. Be sure to stop for a snack and a beverage of choice before coming down. Its absolutely beautiful country. For pet lovers please feel free to give hugs to my buddy Freddy and Joey. Freddy was a rescue and gives the best hugs. We miss them.
Thank you so much Barb and Al. you went above and beyond our expectations.
Bill & Lynne Quinn
Thank you for the great review. You both are great sports and true Baja people.. come back for some more adventures
Beautiful Views Great Hosts
Our stay at Barbara and Al's was most enjoyable. The grounds are lovely with landscaped plants, palms, sculptures, and the pool setting on the sea is relaxing and private with comfortable options to sit or lounge. The casita is very spacious with comfortable beds, a kitchen for easy food prep, original and interesting artwork, and cable tv from the US. There are views of both sunrises and sunsets. There is a lovely patio with table and chairs with a great ocean view where we enjoyed the sunrises and morning coffee. Our hosts were very accommodating and set up a boat tour of Coronado Island complete with a drop off at La Picazon for lunch, viewing a whale shark up close, then taking us back to our casita and dropping us off in front on the beach. Our hosts were available for any questions or advice, but we felt very private during our stay. The little town of Loreto had many very good restaurants, and fun shops. We loved walking on the beach one mile into town, or for miles the other direction. The weather was chilly during our stay, and that was the only thing we wish could have been better. Yes, we would like to return!
On Google map scroll from the Marina 1/2 mile North on the beach and we are the 2nd to last finished home on the beach.
