“Perfectly Located Villa that Met Our Expectations”
Reviewed 26 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

The villa floor plan easily accomodates two couples allowing privacy. The great room with living room, dining and kitchenare perfect to prepare and enjoy lively meals. The BBQ, dining and patio areas upstairs provides outdoor spaces to cook and partake of more wonderful meals. The tower was a wonderful space to enjoy quiet time reading a book, enjoying cocktails and appetizers or viewing the mountains and bay. As is evident, the home is very easy to enjoy. The owner, Felicia always quickly answered questions before and after booking and arrival. Would we return? You bet....2019 here we come!!

“Lovely Villa in the Heart of Nopolo”
Reviewed 18 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Casa Illuminata is obviously cherished by its owners Felicia and Jon. They have spared no expense to make this villa warm, inviting, comfortable, and equipped to be your perfect vacation home. Located on a quiet street in an Ex-pat enclave, you will not be disappointed by the breathtaking views of the mountains and Sea of Cortez.

We travelled with another middle aged couple for a week and found Loreto Bay to be exactly what we were looking for. The four of us cooked dinner in the well-equipped kitchen three evenings and enjoyed dining out at the restaurants in Nopolo for the other nights. I was happy to find that the beds were VERY comfortable as was all the furniture throughout the home.

We did not find it necessary to rent a car for our stay down here and utilized a taxi the two times we went into the quaint town of Loreto for groceries and lunch. Everything within Nopolo is within walking distance and you could even make do with the wares available at the three small stores. Chartering a fishing boat and catching the local delicacies was a highlight of the trip for sure. Felicia has done an excellent job of creating a guidebook specific to the area and her villa to help guests enjoy their time in this very relaxing setting.

Thank you so much for the great review! The homemade ice pops next to Orlandos in town are the best....glad that you were able to take advantage of all the pools and the beach close by. I also appreciate the heads up on the upstairs for little children. An option would also be for the kids to stay in the downstairs master bedroom.
