PRIVATE BEACHFRONT CASITA! HEATED POOL...

La Paz House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Casita On The Bay Of La Paz

Privacy and tranquility are the biggest reasons people stay at the Casita. Enjoy your heated lap pool, relax on the hammock or sip a margarita under the palapa, while grilling a steak.

After dark, you can wrap yourself in one of our soft white towels, enjoy the gas fire pit, while watching the city lights flicker across the water.

If you’re feeling stressed and need to unwind, then come visit our piece of paradise on the Sea of Cortez. The Casita is perfect place to get-away from it all. The breeze blowing over the water and through the palm trees provides a very tranquil relaxed setting for family and friends. The beach area is also a bird watchers paradise.

The Casita is the perfect get-away, for family and friends, while still enjoying convenient access to outdoor and ocean activities.

There are numerous restaurants within walking distance of the Casita.

Bring your laptop (free Wi-Fi) and if you need to do laundry, you’ll have a full W/D.

The Casita is only 10 minutes from La Paz international airport, you’ll be enjoying your heated pool while sipping a beer or margarita soon after arriving in La Paz.

No need for bottled water, we have a whole house water filtration system and ice maker.

To truly experience the area you’ll need to rent a car. Todos Santos (45 min ) and Cabo San Lucas ( 2.5 hours ) are easy fun day trips.

Whether your love is sitting on the beach reading, fishing for trophy marlin, diving, kayaking, whale watching, wind surfing, walking deserted beaches looking for seashells or exploring the natural world in any other innumerable ways. You’ll find La Paz and our Casita a perfect place to launch your dreams.

Our guests have come to begin new relationships, celebrate marriages, or just enjoy the healing peace of living a life where time is measured by the sun and sea.

About Burt or Elaine Rydell

My name is Jim Nelson and I’m from Albuquerque, NM. I’m a helicopter pilot in the Army getting ready to retire from the Military after 30 years. The Casita has been a dream project of mine for many years. Staying in the Casita reminds me what life is really about. The people of La Paz don’t seem to let time rule them, their stress levels are way down or almost nonexistent. If you really need to unwind, and want total privacy, than my Casita is for you. As you probably already know, the La Paz area is a great place to experience life and have a great adventure. “Life begins on the outer edge of your comfort zone”

Burt or Elaine Rydell purchased this house in 2004

Why Burt or Elaine Rydell chose La Paz

I bought the lot and built the Casita in the La Paz area because I had such a great time visiting La Paz. The flight to La Paz from the west coast is short. The board walk in La Paz is by far the most beautiful I’ve seen to include anywhere in the Caribbean. I always feel a sense of adventure while I’m in La Paz and I’ve helped give my family and friends memories they’ll never forget. I’ve been traveling the world over for 30 years in the military and I still love the peace and tranquility of the Casita and local area.

What makes this house unique

I love watching the sunrise over the water with the City of La Paz in the back ground. The Casita sits on 1.5 acres with over a 100 small palm trees. There are always birds to watch on the beach and humming birds around the casita. The Casita is so private that I’m not concerned about what I’m wearing, no one will know or care. I also enjoy being able to walk to one of the restaurants in the area and not have to drive all the time.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5
The house is perfect for a couple or a small group; private, well maintained, beautiful location, great attention to detail. You will not be disappointed. I highly recommend the restaurant a couple doors down on the same side of the streets; great food, great prices, and extremely convenient - you can easily walk in a couple minutes. Enjoy!

Wonderful Experience in a Splendid Casita

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I enjoyed our stay tremendously. First, there is the quiet location at the beach, offering a great view. Second, there is the house itself, clean and well equipped with everything functioning properly, from warm water to internet access. Third, the pool is much longer than those found in similar objects. Fourth, although the location is at some distance to the city, it is easy (and very enjoyable) to reach it by public busses. Thus, while some reviewers recommend a car, we feel this is truly optional and one can get along equally well without a car. Finally, we stress that Burton has always been very helpful and friendly. Right from the beginning of our stay, he had let us feel that he would be around if needed. However, if not, he stays discreetly in the background. Summarizing, we recommend this place to anyone in the highest terms.

We will only continue to improve the Casita and the area around it... I honestly hope you both had a great adventure in La Paz, BCS. And I hope you both can make it back to the Casita one day to relive, relax and enjoy the Casita again someday... Thanks again... Jim

Honest acurate review! (Nice place to relax with some flaws)

  • 4 of 5
My fiance and I( a couple in our 20's and 30's) just returned from a 7 night stay at the Casita. We flew into San Jose airport, rented a car then drove to La Paz
*Nice property better in person than in pictures impressed* Nice landscaping & well taken care of gardener does a good job,lots of palms
*Spacious property,5 sun lounger beds,table and seating area outside with shade,hammock, 2 rocking chairs on deck.*Very efficient air conditioning always kept us cold almost too cold,we turned it off or on low at night.No password required for the WIFI,internet was always fast.*Lots of windows for natural light very nice *Bathroom has a separate shower and jacuzzi tub,shower has good water pressure.*The owner installed an additional water purification system, it is safe to brush teeth with tap water and safe for drinking.(most of time we drank bottled water simply out of convenience) *Sofa turns into a bed,for additional guests, casita is spacious you could easily fit another bed in the bedroom.*We saws lots of little geckos and a few larger lizards, iguana and various of birds.*Pool was not heavily chlorinated so it does not dry the skin,just keeps the water clean,we left 2 blowup pool loungers for future guest to use, nice to lay on in the pool tan & at night are nice for floating weightlessly around the pool looking up at the stars relaxing!*There is a convinence store right next door OXXO which I believe is open 24 hrs and has a bank machine, there are a few restaurants near by.CONS: Please note the casita is not actually in La Paz,its is a good 20-25 min drive to La Paz, going back and forth becomes time consuming,it is located on a highway,there are a few other homes on either side (about 5). There is no real grocery stores near by you will need to go into La Paz, if like to cook at home at least some of the time this is a bit of an inconvenience.You have limited restaurants to choose from in the area the casita is in.* If you want to visit Balandra beach keep in mind its going to be a good 45-50 minute drive from the Casita.The system set up for locking the gate not great and is inefficient & unsafe.There is a small lock and key like one you would use for a school locker, to unlock the gate and drive out.You have to drive up get out of the car unlock it,get back in drive out then get back out and lock it again,so annoying.The owner should install a remote system to open and lock and unlock the gate or a system which has a code to lock it for safety.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the well thought out review. I take all reviews very seriously. I'll be looking into installing an electronic gate very soon. The Casita is about 10 miles or 15 minutes from the La Paz board walk, beach area. I can normally drive to Walmart in about 10 minutes. I picked the area the Casita is located for privacy and to get away from tourist. The Casita is on 1.5 acres of land, all walled in, very private. I appreciate your nice review and I seriously hope everyone built long lasting memories of their stay at the Casita. We will only continue to make the Casita better over time. Thanks for your time.

Casita Escape

  • 5 of 5
The Casita provided a wonderful getaway for me and my wife. We were able to reconnect after some time apart and enjoyed the Sun. The Casita itself is wonderful; we could have enjoyed ourselves there the entire week. We rented a car and visited some nearby beaches, snorkeling with whale sharks, and ventured as far south as Todos Santos and Cerritos Beach. We hope to return soon.

A Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Our week at this property was just wonderful. The casita is so comfortable. It is obvious that a lot of planning went into its design. The furniture and decor are comfortable and inviting. We loved the master bedroom with king bed and view of the lovely pool. The landscaping is gorgeous. We spent so much time by the pool reading and just enjoying the view of the water and large variety of birds. They were a joy to watch. Every night we gathered around the fire pit by the pool. The location is
great...we could walk to several restaurants..one just down the beach with great view..and a handy
convenience store and pharmacy. We travel a lot and this place is definitely a keeper.

What an amazing place to get into the Baja Feeling. Burt and Elaine were most helpful. The home had all we needed. Love the peace and quiet. It was a trip and a stay that we will always remember. We plan to return next year.

Health Emergencies

If you need medical services while in La Paz, you have several choices.

? For major medical: The best hospital for English speakers is Fidepaz Hospital. It is located on the major street/highway going south and is easy to find as it is painted purple. Follow the Carreterra to the left of WalMart. You will see the purple building on your right peeking through the trees.

? If you need an ambulance, dial the emergency number 066. You are at Kilometro catorce punto cinco de la Carreterra al Norte en El Centenario. (This means kilometer 14.5 on the highway going north in El Centenario.

? To see an English-speaking doctor, we recommend Dr. Buenaventura Diaz-Lopez. He is located at the Fidepaz Hospital on the right of the front plaza. To make an appointment, you will need to call the main hospital at 124-0400. Just say “Doctor Diaz-Lopez” and they will understand. His receptionist does not speak English, but may transfer your call to the Doctor. An office visit is 500 pesos. (Dr. Diaz has attended several friends who had major problems – heart disease, injuries, etc. and all have highly recommended him to everyone.)

? If you have a cold, stomach problems, or a minor injury, there is a clinic two blocks from the house going south, just after Super Pollo on Marquez de Leon. The Doctor is Denise Alvarez. She does not speak English well, but does understand quite a bit. She is only there after 3:30 in the afternoons or all day Saturday. An office visit is 40 pesos. The clinic number is 044-612-104-0964.

? Medications: In Mexico, medications are provided in 3 strengths. Similar contains about 60% of the name brand effectiveness. Generico provides about 40% to 100%, depending on the generic. Brand names are sold by the pharmaceutical name – i.e., Claritin is Lortadina. You can get Similar at the pharmacy (Farmacia) next to the clinic two blocks from the house. WalMart’s pharmacy has both Generico (generic) and brand name medications. This is true at other large store pharmacies also, such as Mega, Chedraui and Soriana grocery stores, as well as Sam’s Club and City Club membership stores.
