After touring many cities in Mexico, we decided that La Paz was the perfect place to build our future retirement. Ensconced along the largest bay on Baja’s Sea of Cortez coast, La Paz is noted for a beautiful malecon (waterfront walkway) backed by palm trees, pastel-colored buildings, spectacular sea-side sunsets, easy-going pace and it’s proximity to uncrowded beaches and pristine islands. La Paz has the perfect blend of a beautiful historic city set against a tranquil desert and a pristine, turquoise ocean abundant with marine life. We think La Paz offers a great blend of an old world city with friendly people yet also provides all the amenities of a large city without the big city feel. Beware! Legend has it that once a traveller visits La Paz, he leaves a piece of his heart there, and is always drawn feeling complete again when returning to this wonderful place.
People who have stayed at our property consistently tell us that once they arrive they are content to just relax in our inviting great room, cook up a sumptious meal in our fully-equipped kitchen, and enjoy their family and friends in a luxurious getaway from it all. You can pamper yourself in the large, private infinity pool overlooking the ocean; enjoy a margarita as you recline on the sunken bar stools. Both the pool and the 8-person hot tub provide the perfect backdrop to view the stunning sunsets and watch as the La Paz cities lights blink on. La Paz is only 15 minutes away and offers a wide range of restaurants from Italian, to high-end Mexican fusion, to delicious tacos and sumptious seafood cocktails. Previous guests have let us know that fishing in the Sea of Cortez, whale watching, kayaking, wind-surfing, snorkeling and wandering along pristine beaches are some of the favored activities.
From the moment I walked into what was to be home for a week, I was constantly delighted by each expression of architectural thought and design. It started outside with the use of stone walls which continued to the inside and repeated the pattern through to the master suite.
All this after walking under the awesome barrel shaped brick ceiling. The use of beautiful marble and onyx, in the kitchen and bathrooms fit in perfectly. My thrill continued as I observed the furniture of wood which has the feeling of age and so many of pieces reflect the wonder of nature - especially the spectacular dining room table.
All of this is to say, as an artist who sculpts in stone, thank you for sharing your home. It has been a delight.
Everything about the property is wonderful including the managers who assisted us with any questions we had about the property or local area. The pool and hot tub are stunning along with the views surrounding them. It was very nice to be in a quiet secluded section of town while still being just a brief drive from the main parts of La Paz. From stunning sunsets to endless starry nights, this is a gem in a wonderful baja town! The whale sharks are just up the road, everything in town is less than 10-15 min away, I would highly recommend this property to anyone from couples to families or large groups as it can easily accommodate any of the above.
As a group of six (3 couples) our stay here was wonderful and the property manager was extremely accommodating with lots of helpful information and recommendations for good restaurants close by and in town. We took her advice and booked a trip to Isla Espiritu Santo to dive and snorkel with whale sharks and sea lion pups through Red Travel and we were not disappointed. The trip was amazing and our three guides were fantastic and very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife. The food at all the restaurants we dined at was excellent as was the in home meals prepared by our cook, Miriam. La Paz is a beautiful city rich in history and culture and the locals are very friendly and helpful. We loved the fact that there's plenty of good shopping, places to eat, and fun things to see and do while not bei g over run with tourists. Loved every minute of our visit and can't wait to go again!!
The house is beautiful - just like the photos. The pool was a perfect place to cool and relax in the afternoon. Bev, the manager was wonderful. She was so helpful throughout our stay and made sure we had everything we needed. The house is a drive from La Paz centro but all in all, we had a great and memorable family vacation.
First time visiting La Paz, and so thankful we picked this property. It's architecture and feel is very warm and inviting. The views are incredible and the pool divine. Bev was especially helpful in helping us gringos navigate and had a warm welcome for us after a day of travel. Her recommendations on many things were spot on and we do feel extremely fortunate to have found this gem. It's outside of La Paz in a residential neighborhood which makes it very private. We toured Baja Expeditions to snorkel with sea lions, whale sharks, and saw humpback whales, an adventure of a lifetime- loved how La Paz is so NOT Cabo. Worth mentioning- the Master bedroom is detached from the casa that has 2 bedrooms, so if you have children you feel that might be uncomfortable sleeping apart from you it's worth it to know.
Our family of 9, children and grandchildren, had a wonderful time here. There was plenty of space to spread out yet tables big enough to come together for meals. Everyone loved the pool and hot tub and there was lots of splashing and laughter coming from it. We had adventures swimming with whale sharks and sea lion pups, absolutely beautiful beaches, whales, dolphins and too many birds to mention. It was a unique experience and this was the house where it was possible for our family group.
Thank you so much for making our family vacation an amazing one. We had 9 of us in the house over the New Year's Holiday and couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. The house is more beautiful than the photos make it seem. The moment you walk into the house you have a feeling of a grand arrival. We had chips and guacamole and beer the moment we arrived. Bev, the property manager, was a delight! She did some grocery shopping and arranged for us to have some meals prepared along with a cooking lesson! She came by often to check on us, but was never in our hair. She had great suggestions for restaurants and things to do.
We did get lost driving here from Cabo so I would suggest flying into La Paz directly. Or make sure you have a GPS because the roads don't have signs and it is very confusing. The house is about a 20 minute drive from downtown La Paz, but it was a nice little Oasis.
When we come back to La Paz we will for sure stay here. Thank you!
