Loreto Bay Homes Info

Welcome to Loreto Bay Homes Community 

We look forward to welcoming you to our friendly and safe community.  Our team at Loreto Bay Homes is dedicated to ensuring your vacation is a memorable experience and that you will tell your friends this is THE PLACE TO BE

Loreto Bay Homes Rentals and Property Management office is at FN466C.  We are located next to the Wine Bar and near the Hotel. Hours are Monday thru Friday 8am to 6pm. & Sat  9am to 1pm.

Our Concierge Julio is available in the office to assist you with car rentals, tours, dinner recommendations, taxis, etc.  His email is Julio@bajaboss.com to setup an appointment.   Julio is in the office from 8:30 am to 10 am, and from noon to 1:30 pm Monday to Friday.  

The Water is safe to drink in Loreto from the tap.  Many people prefer bottled water to drink but there are no problems to use the tap water for washing vegetables, coffee, brushing teeth, etc.

Loreto is on Mountain Time, one hour ahead of West Coast Pacific time.  Often in Mexico the hot and cold water taps are reversed, if the left faucet does not give you HOT water after a few minutes, try the right faucet as the pipes may be crossed.  Upstairs showers can take a few minutes to receive the hot water and it is recommended that you let the sink or shower run hot for a few minutes before using. 

Our community is very safe and you will see our friendly Security Guards around each neighborhood.  Their English is sometimes limited, but they always enjoy saying hello and try to assist when they can.  The Security Office is located in unit FN349 and it is open 24x7.  They can provide extra card keys if yours get demagnetized or lost.  Please see them for any afterhours emergencies and they will contact us or assist you immediately.

The Associa Offices located in unit FN350on the paseo is the Administrator of the Home Owners Association.  They govern the rules and regulations established for the Villages of Loreto Bay. 

PETS allowed.  We are a pet friendly community, and would ask that all dogs be on a lease.  Pets are not allowed in the Community Center or businesses serving food for health reasons.  There is a $100 USD fine for not picking up after your dog, so be sure to carry plastic bags. 

The Founders Community Pool is located behind the Loreto Bay Homes office.  This beautiful heated pool with spa is tucked away out of the wind with comfortable lounges, pool bathrooms, and outdoor shower.  The Sub J Community Pool is located behind homes in Aqua Viva.  The 25 meter Lap Pool is located near the beach … turn right at Vive Tours on the boulevard and you will find it.  These are for the use of the Loreto Bay owners and guests.   You are allowed to bring drinks and food, but no glassware.  Bring your own towels, but please do not reserve loungers for long periods of time. 

Note:  Driving on Baja Highways.  The left turn signal indicates to the car/truck behind you that it is safe to pass.  It is recommended that when you slow down to make a left hand turn into the south entrance of Loreto Bay that you use the HAZARD lights to indicate caution to other drivers so that they slow down. Then pull onto the right hand shoulder and wait for oncoming traffic to pass and it is clear to turn.  HAZARD lights are commonly used to indicate construction, animals, or other hazards.

TIPPING is called Propina in Mexico and much appreciated especially in Loreto.   Wages are very low and our tourist season is only six months a year.  Your appreciation of the friendly service will ensure that you are remembered and taken care of with the hospitality that we locals know and love.  We recommend 15% to 20% as cost of food & beverage is very small compared to all other resorts.  For tour guides and random acts of kindness, propina is a welcome token of acknowledgement.
