A Historic Oceanfront Estate in Loreto, Baja California Sur
Once known as the Flying Sportsman Lodge, this epic oceanfront estate now known as Casa Davison has been meticulously restored utilizing only the finest materials and craftsmanship. The comprehensive restoration process took over 11 years to complete and no expense was spared in creating this luxurious oceanfront estate. The impeccable attention to detail is evident throughout this stunning home and manicured grounds.
Situated directly on the sandy beach, the 1.32-acre (5,346.16 square meters) property has 210 feet of direct oceanfront with unobstructed views of Carmen Island and the Sea of Cortez. The home also has a legal concession for 14,885.84 (1,382.94 square meters) of beachfront located in the federal zone.
Residents and visitors enter the vast estate through a large stone entryway. A tall stone wall surrounds the property offering security and privacy. As you pass through the entryway, a palm tree-lined cobblestone driveway extends eastward towards the Sea of Cortez to the edge of the property. Alongside the long driveway is a garden area with fragrant fruit trees. Throughout the property there are over 130 mature palm trees, including Coconut Palms, Date Palms and Fan Palms.

The living room has a 2-ton A/C, satellite TV (Shaw) and the main home is equipped with high-speed fiber optic internet.
