|Minimum Stay||5 - 7 nights|
This 1942 historic Mexican water front home has been beautifuly and carefully renovated to retain the charm of Old Mexico whilst providing you with a comfortable and unique place to stay when visiting La Paz.
Perfectly located on the waterfront Malecon and only three blocks from the main town square, this two-bedroom home is great for a family break or a romantic get away.
We have a large patio and garden with a beautiful palapa on the waterfront with stunning La Paz Bay views and a private walled patio to the rear of the casa for more private dining.
We have built a great little kitchen at the rear of the house within the walled patio, making the house even better for extended stays (Built March 2014).
Being so centrally located you don't need a car in our home unless you want one. You can even access all of the beautiful beaches by using the comfortable beach buses that depart from the Central Bus Station on the Malecon just 3 blocks from our home.
The most favorite walk of both tourists and locals is the La Paz Malecon which now stretches for 5 km and is considered one of the most beautiful in all of Mexico. You will be staying right alongside this beautiful Malecon meaning you can start and end your days with a gentle stroll up and down the waters edge taking in the sights, sounds and smells of the water and Mexico.
The Malecon serves as a focal point for friends and families to gather for a leisurely stroll along the Bay of Peace, dine at one of the many outdoor cafes, enjoy free concerts most weekends and savor the flavor of a truly great Mexican city.
My property managers Simon and Dianne Loftus have an office on the same property as the house which operates between the hours of 8am and 7pm Mon - Sat however they are very quiet neighbors and are on hand should you have any questions during your stay.
Come and explore Mexico and stay with us at Casa Cuevas

I have a passion for finding unique properties here in Mexico and restoring them to their former glory.
This is my favorite of all of my properties and it is the one that I think of as my personal get away when I come and stay in La Paz.
Simon Loftus purchased this house in 2006
This home has years of history and throughout the renovation we were careful to maintain and even celebrate this.
It is a beautiful home with an amazing location and a character that just keeps giving. You will feel right at home here in Casa Cuevas.
Wow! We LOVED it here. Soooo much better than we ever imagined. Casa Cuevas is comfortable, cozy, and in a prime location. The online photos represent the property very well but we thought it was even better in person. The patio with views out to the sea and people watching are very relaxing. On-street parking in front of the casa was easy and safe. There is some traffic noise from the road, but this is the city so that would be expected. It really didn't bother us at all. After 10pm traffic dwindles to very little noise and inside the casa seemed a world away. Occasional mariachi bands played nearby in the evenings to add to the character of the place.
The Malecon is such a fantastic place to walk, run, bike, people watch, or just soak in the gorgeous sea view. Dozens of great places to eat within walking distance. It was a fun just to randomly walk the streets to explore the city. We felt as safe or safer than any other city we've visited. Fantastic beaches nearby to swim and kayak. We had the most incredible trip to Espiritu Santo island. Whales breaching 50 yards from the boat, swimming with playful sea lion pups in the wilderness, snorkeling into a school of hundreds of manta rays, spectacular scenery, lunch on a pristine isolated beach...all in the same day. UNBELIEVABLE! (Our guides Marine Biologist Alan and Capt. Sergio at Espiritu & Baja Tours were *FANTASTIC*). Snorkeling with the whale sharks just across the bay from the casa and the trip up to Magdalena Bay to pet the curious newborn grey whales were icing on the cake. We had a crazy good time here. We stayed for a week and wish we could stay longer. We would come back in a heartbeat. La Paz is now one of our all time favorite places. Starting and ending the day at Casa Cuevas - perfection.
Me and my husband stayed at this magical house for 4 days and 3 nights and it was PERFECTION. So much character and ambiance. Lots of space for two people; four would still have plenty. Bathroom is very cool and extremely well stocked. Kitchen is just what you need. The location couldn't be better. Right on the malecon and very close to restaurants, bars, shops, the beach. Outside space beautifully landscaped. Very safe. It was a pleasure calling this house home for a few days - we will be back!
We stayed in this historic beautifully restored casita for 5 nights in January. We had never been to La Paz before and this house is perfectly located to see and do almost all La Paz has to offer on foot. Just cross the street and you can walk (or bike) for miles on the scenic Malecon walkway along the water. There are literally more restaurants than you can count within easy walking distance (actually there are 3 in the same block as the house)...all well priced with delicious food. Two of our favorites were Tres Virgines and Sitges....also liked Catrina's Cocina Mexicana so much we went back twice.
The house has super comfy beds, ceiling fans in every room, good lighting in the bathroom, big shower with great water pressure, plenty of big soft bath towels and a washer & dryer. There is no kitchen, but there is a kitchen area with a full sized small refrigerator with freezer, microwave, coffeemaker, coffee bean grinder, dishes, glasses, silverware, even scissors and sharp knives...a lot more than you would have in a hotel room with a kitchenette. There are also coffee beans in the freezer and plenty of drinking water. There is a great grocery store three blocks away called Aramburo.
There are two lovely outdoor dining areas in the nicely landscaped yard, where we had breakfast every morning and an occasional lunch and dinner so we could sit outside and enjoy the view of the Sea of Cortez. Also great for afternoon wine and tapas.
My husband went snorkeling with the whale sharks and went scuba diving several times...once with the sea lions. Some of the people on the scuba trips had driven up to La Paz from Cabo San Lucas to dive with the whale sharks and the 6 or 7 types of whales that all reside in the Sea of Cortez and to enjoy all the things that Baja offers in a more laid back, less hectic, and less crowded way.
Check out La Paz and all if has to offer...and stay here...this is a well equipped, well located and a most enjoyable casita for a fantastic price.
We are long time Baja travelers.and Casa Cuevas, fits our needs perfectly. Across the street from the Malecon, with a perfect view of the bay while watching the sun go down. This is our second stay, and we plan to have more equally great stays. Restaurants are numerous and within walking distance...whether it is an "in-town" or streetside dining. The beds are great. Everything was exactly as offered, and well maintained inside and out. We can recommend this as an excellent place to stay for sightseeing, golfing, fishing, or just sit under the pallapa and "veg out". Thanks Pamela.
We had a wonderful time at Casa Cuevas as our launch pad to get acclimated for a sea kayaking trip on Isla Espiritu De Santos. A good location, and a lovely and secure place with beautiful brick walls and tile floors, super comfy bed, great shower, etc. Also ideal to have laundry on site. Would recommend traveling further into town for the more affordable and authentic food options off the touristy Malecon. Only downside is there isn't much that qualifies as a kitchen besides counters, a small fridge and a microwave in the hallway (you have to wash dishes in the bathroom sink), the floors were a little gritty, and the living room furniture/couch is less than comfy. But overall we loved the place and were very happy to have stayed there. Our host Pamela was very nice and helpful. It was also affordable. We highly recommend it to others.
We are repeated guests of this lovely home. We feel like this is our home away from home, while we shop, and visit the local restaurants in La Paz. This home has also been a very convenient stop over while we do our adventure eco tours, ( snorkeling trips to the sea lion colony, swimming with the whale sharks, and kayaking at Espiritu Santo Island). There is lots to do in La Paz, as well as relaxing at this lovely residence.
Of all the 31 states of Mexico, Baja California Sur, commonly called ‘paradise between two seas’ has the longest coast line with 1,386 miles of beauty and intrigue, 7,000 ft. mountains rising out of the Sierras to deserts reaching to the seas.
La Paz has interesting and fine dining and, as one would imagine with 20% of the coastline of the nation, the most traditional fare is usually related to the sea. The freshness of the seafood is incomparable. To be found in the central area are the classic fish and shrimp tacos including lobster, cocktails of octopus or scallops, stuffed clams or dried and seasoned manta ray meat. More toward evening, carne asada and arrachera meals are available and are a must to sample; Sonoran beef at its finest. La Paz also has restaurants with national and international flavors, many located in historic haciendas. Be pleasantly surprised by Chinese, Japanese, Italian, French, Yucatan, Oaxaca and other state favorites.
