LA PAZ BEACHFRONT COTTAGE, GETAWAY, TRANQUIL, PRIVATE

La Paz Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage w/ 1 Bedroom - 1 Bathroom - Sleeps 2 w/ Pool

The HoneyMoon Hut is no longer accepting reservations.

Our beachfront cottage is your home away from it all. But close enough to enjoy all that the city and surrounding area have to offer!

***Looking for a little piece of paradise to call your own? Ask about out HOME HUNTERS SPECIAL***

We call it the HoneyMoon Hut, and it doesn't matter if your are newly weds, almost weds or coming for a second honeymoon, you will love it here. we have hosted many singles here for R&R, business or home buying. La Paz is a center of eco-tourism. and our cottage is right on the beach and surrounded by a biological preserve. This is a birder's delight: 60 species of birds call our neighborhood home.

Including a pair of great horned owls. Osprey wheel and soar and swoop near our pool. Wake to the

sounds of frigate birds as they steal from each other, baby ospreys squeal and demand food. Hawks

swoop, and even the lowly vulture visits here. Some of the best shell collecting is right here on our beach.

Drop Out Do Nothing: This is the place to come to do nothing. Well you can kayak, walk on deserted beaches, collect shells, float in the sea or the salt-water pool, and if you are really energetic, drive to town for ice cream or dinner. You won’t want to go to sleep and miss one second of the city lights view, and the moonrise over the bay which can only be described as romantic. Enjoy your first cup of coffee wrapped in one of our soft, white robes. That is if you want to leave the silken 400-thread count sheets in your wicker sleigh bed. Your home away has a fully equipped kitchen, WI-FI, A/C ,and of course the view and use of the salt-water pool. If you want to tour our beautiful beaches and other towns you will need a car. We have a special rate with a rental car agency.

Beach Combing & Bird Watching: Want to beach comb? Do it right here. Or, if you want to drive to deserted beaches your hosts provide canvas and teak sand chairs and a miniature market umbrella, a cooler and directions to the best shelling around. Our neighborhood is surrounded by a federal biological preserve there is a research institute at the far end of the beach. Birders! There are 60 species of birds that nest here. Including a pair of great horned owls. Osprey wheel and soar and swoop near our pool. Wake to the sounds of birds stealing from each other, baby ospreys squeal and demand food. Hawks swoop, and even the lowly vulture visits here.

Be Free of Schedules: This little jewel of a guesthouse is not for the party hardy crowd. We cater to you: the thoughtful, busy person when you want to disconnect and lay down your load for a few days or a week. Or even take a vacation from your vacation. Our guests have come to heal, to start a new love relationship, to celebrate a marriage, or just to be free of schedules.

We can arrange for a massage therapist to come to you. La Paz is the center of eco-tourism. you can charter a boat that takes you to swim with sea lions, snorkel around a sea mount, anchors off of Isla Espiritu Santos and you kayak to shore. When you arrive, lunch is waiting.

WE STAYED AT THE HONEYMOON HUT

  • 5 of 5
Here are some words for you to include as our Review.

Feb 18th - 23rd 2009.

What a relaxing, and at the same time, exciting stay for us in the Honeymoon Hut. We travelled from snowy and cold Vancouver BC, to look at the La Paz area, and in particular, some property to purchase.

The Casita at Susan's was perfect for us! We came and went at our own pace, had all that we needed to be independent, (wireless internet, well equipped kitchen, privacy, view).

Susan and her husband are a wealth of local knowledge, from restaurants to beaches to property! We loved it all so much, we purchased some land nearby, and look forward to spending more time in the HoneyMoon Hut as we prepare and plan to build.

A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the Honeymoon Hut for a week and enjoyed it immensely. The location was ideal: close enough to La Paz to be convenient but far enough away to feel relaxed and at home. Susan and Ira were the perfect hosts, giving us suggestions and advice about the area. The house was clean and cozy, and we were grateful to have a kitchen to prepare the occasional meal. We would definitely stay at the Honeymoon Hut again!

THANK YOU, SUSAN AND IRA

  • 5 of 5
Three days before we were scheduled to arrive at the Honeymoon Hut, our eldest daughter informed us that she was scheduled for an intrusive surgery. The news obviously put a damper on our vacation. Our daughter didn’t want us to cancel our trip, as she would need our support in the weeks following her operation. We told Susan and Ira about the situation as we thought we may have to shorten our stay. They were so considerate and compassionate. They offered their toll free phone to keep in touch with our daughter and our other grown children. Ira brought the phone over to us every evening, probably sensing that we were shy about asking to use it. Both Susan and Ira commiserated with us and asked for updates. We really appreciate their compassion and support. In spite of the circumstances, we did enjoy our time at the Honeymoon Hut. The casita was spotless and well equipped for cooking and living. It was quiet, soothing, and we were able to unplug from our daily lives. Our defining memories will be reading while floating on air mattresses in the pool and enjoying an evening glass of wine on the patio overlooking La Paz across the bay. Thank you, Susan and Ira!

EXCELLENT STARTING POINT FOR LA PAZ

  • 5 of 5
We spent 7 days in this nice house near the beach. We found all listed description accurate. The custumer service was perfect. The small house is perfect to relax in the sun, have some undisturbed walkouts, and looking for bird wildlife in the nearby bay. The owners Susan and Ira provided very helpful assistance for tours to grey whale whale watching (3 hour drive to a perfect spot near Puerto Lopez Mateos organized by a local company - breathtaking!!!). Visitors could also go to guided island tours and swimming with shark whales from La Paz, which is only 30-40 minutes drive from there. We recommend this property for those couples who wish to stay in a quiet environment not to far from La Paz and the major attractions of Baja California Sur.

EXCELLENT HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
La Paz is awesome. There are many things to do in and around the area but you need a car. The owners are super helpful if you need it and they will arrange excursions for you if you wish. Everything about our experience was fantastic, the food, the people, the climate. Whale watching is a must if you are there at the right time. The only thing that we noticed is that the unit itself lacked at little TLC. We would rent here again without a doubt.

Owner's Response: Diana,
It was wonderful having you here, and it is nice to know that you would come back.

We keep the HoneyMoon Hut sparkling clean, and provide everything you could want.
But we do ask every guest if there is anything we can do to make it better. You told us everything was fine and that you wished you could stay longer.
We look forward to seeing you again, and try to make things as lovely as we would expect.

PEACE AND QUIET AT THE HONEYMOON HUT

  • 4 of 5
We spent 2 weeks at the Honeymoon Hut. It was a good place to relax and the owners were friendly and helpful. Property was clean, and for the most part, as advertised. Owner had a health issue which may have affected a few of OUR expectations.
We drove out to a variety of beaches, spent a couple of days in La Paz, and then hung around the Casita in the evenings. You need a car; there are no stores in the neighbourhood for groceries (when you run out of coffee - for example - LOL). Be aware that once it gets dark there was not much to do in this subdivision - but we were prepared for this before arriving. Must be why it is called the Honeymoon Hut. :-)

We were excited about the pool, and were disappointed to discover that the heater did not function and it was really too cold to swim (down to 14C at night). Had we known the pool was not heated we would have chosen to stay elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Evelyn,
We enjoyed having you stay with us. And we enjoyed the many chats we had in our living room.

We wonder what was not up to your expectations. The Hut has been recently painted, the chairs in the sala and on the terrace were recently recovered, and the pots and pans and glassware recently replaced.
The curtains are bright white, and there was always a supply of fresh towels.
My leg was in a cast, but I did ask you every few days if everything was alright , you always answered a bright and friendly "yes".
We lent you our shell book and bird book and did your laundry.
When you pointed out something was not quite right with the shower, the maid was right on it.
Our pool is not heated,and you never asked us if it was heated when you made the reservation.
We tried to be as accommodating and friendly as we could. We take our hospitality seriously.
We do advertise the HoneyMoon Hut as a place to drop out and do nothing. Thank you for staying with us.
