About Ana Carolina Acosta Salmon
My name is Monica. I grew up in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, and have lived La Paz for the last six years. During that time, I've grown roots into the community through educational programs and efforts to advance environmental conscience in the form of organic gardens, recycling, and sustainable water-management practices.
Ana Carolina Acosta Salmon purchased this House in 2006
Why Ana Carolina Acosta Salmon chose La Paz
Casa Abuelita is the darling and favorite a of all our guests who have made this their home away from home. Its decoration and furniture is just exquisite. We’ve paid extensive time, love, and attention to the beautiful bird-themed murals and artwork of Casa Abuelita—a magnificent detail that brings light and beauty to its open spaces. The colonial architecture of Casa Abuelita is a window into the past of this gorgeous city. Built over 100 years ago, it recently had an exquisite and complete renovation that has preserved the history and beauty of a vintage home while bringing you all the comforts and amenities of the 21st century. Its interiors as well as its exteriors are beautiful and very comfortable. The original doors, cleaned and waxed, still hang beneath the wooden beams where they have been for decades, but they are now accompanied by a layer of foam insulation and waterproofing that allow for comfortable nights, even in the heat of summer. Its two master bedrooms are warm and colorful. The side street rooms that once served spaces for Señora Julieta’s typing classes have been remodeled and are now finely designed bathrooms that also act as buffers from the sounds of the street. Inside the house you will find unexpected peace and serenity, especially in the central courtyard, which has a pool, gas bbq grill, sun area, and features an old well, protected by a sturdy steel grate, that still reaches down into the La Paz aquifer.
What makes this House unique
Guests have access to all areas of the house beyond the 3 bedrooms. Common areas include living room, kitchen and a full dining room, outdoor living room and pool in the courtyard, and laundry room with a washer and drier. There are air conditioning units in every room of the house. We take pride in using non-toxic cleaning supplies, providing a healthier and more natural alternative, while being just as effective to synthetic-based conventional cleaners. As La Paz doesn’t have a city recycling program, we go the extra mile and arrange for recycling ourselves. We offer recycling bins for our guests, which we then transport to proper recycling facilities outside of town. We are making efforts towards water conservation in La Paz. We are adopting water-efficient technologies, growing mostly native vegetation in our decorative gardens, promoting responsible water usage, and building urban rainwater capture basins. Finally, we provide canvas grocery bags you can use in your trips to the local stores, farmer’s and fish markets.

Wish we could have stayed longer
This is a lovely home, exquisitely furnished, in a great location that enables walking to most areas of interest. The street outside just completed a significant upgrade in March by the city so it is very attractive (and the construction work has ended). The block is a mixed use block with retail, homes and one bar. The kitchen had everything needed with a nice island and the knives were sharp. The back patio area was very inviting and relaxing with a heated pool. The living and dining areas were spacious and well arranged. The bedrooms and baths were furnished with high quality bedding and towels. The trade off for a central location is of course some typical inner city noise. Two of the bedrooms front on the street and one is located away from the street and is quieter. Those who like to go to bed early and who are not accustomed to or are sensitive to inner city noise may want to brings some ear plugs for sleeping. All in all a very enjoyable stay although it was cut short due to the border closing. Management was very helpful in addressing the issues associated with our early departure. Highly recommend this professionally run house whose management goes above and beyond expectations.
Great stay in best neighborhood
We had a fantastic time in La Paz and found that the house was perfectly located. You are literally surrounded by the best coffee shops, fresh organic juice bar, restaurants, Mezcal bar and the water all within a block. The house has everything you need and more to have an enjoyable stay and was perfectly clean. Designated parking spots were occupied by construction workers at the time of our stay but there was plenty of parking on the street so it was no inconvenience. There is a fantastic bar across the street which created atmospheric noise into the wee hours and some local animals but nothing you wouldn’t expect given the central urban location. Thanks for the stay, we would not hesitate to return!
Worked well for us
Our family of 3 adults/2 teens enjoyed our time at Casa Abuelita. The communication before arrival was spot on. The house was as described. The proximity to things we wanted to do was perfect. Fell in love with La Paz. Love that they appreciate and want to protect the environment. They even left us a baked Valentine's gift. We'll be back!
La Paz Adventure
This home is spectacular in every way. The pictures truly don't show how spacious the garden area is, the beauty of all of the special touches throughout the home, the luxuriousness of the three master bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms. There is even a bathroom off of the garden as well as a laundry room!
Our only bother (not complaint) is there was major construction going on in front of the house with the entire street being closed to traffic while the power lines were being re-routed underground. We were able to park about a block away - no worries but the power was out for three hours the first night we were there (blown transformer!) and then turned off intentionally the next morning at 8:00 am. Sadly we were showering and packing for our trip home so it made things more challenging as when the power was off, so was the water! Thankfully we all have a healthy sense of humor - and truly, still give this home 5 big gold stars as it is truly beautiful and we will definitely return... Great location, beautiful home, fabulous time!
Thank you Shaun for taking you time to write us a review. The construction on the street is over, they are working now in the sidewalk area but they almost finish. the neighborhood looks better than a few months ago. we will waiting for you!
Thank you for the accuracy of the listing. If anything it was better in person. I had been waiting anxiously for this vacation and Casa Abuelita was a big part of our relaxation.
I had read about the evening music and it's true. The rooms street side will hear the music from across the street. I was lucky to have the room off the patio and it was serene.
Thank you Michael for taking the time to write us a review, it was a pleasure meeting you and your family.
We hope to see you again.
