The Little House at the Beach is the perfect getaway and the best deal in Baja Sur. There is a reason we have been classified as a 5 star accommodation. Experience the sun, sand, beautiful sunrises and sunsets that you will never forget. This two bedroom, 2 bath casita is your home away from home. Sit on the front porch and watch the waves roll in or watch the plentiful variety of birds coming for their morning meal. The 4 ft pool is safe for children and the yard totally fenced. Here you are free from the hustle and bustle of city life. Private entrance to the roof deck where you can enjoy suntanning or star gazing. Use the 2 kayaks to explore the bay.
Experience the tranquility of La Paz that most guests seek and you will know why many return to La Paz year after year and some like myself just don't leave.
Things to do during your stay:
Included in your rental package are the use of two kayaks and an exercise area complete with free weights plus a 200 dvd collection and a large selection of paperbacks. Wifi is available on the property and you are hardwired in the casita.
We have space for your trailer or boat.
You can stroll the local beach or head to the incredible rock formations at San Juan del La Costa.
If you enjoy Bird watching, this is the place to be. There are 60 species of birds that have been sited in this area. Don't forget your binoculars.
Take the boat tour to Isla Espiritu Santos and see the colonies of sea lions up close. The scenery is unbelievable and it is a trip not to be missed.
If you are into snorkelling, there are a variety of excellent places to go.
Take a day trip to Todo Santos for sightseeing and souvenir shopping.
Check out the wind and kite surfing at La Ventana.
Spend the morning or afternoon shopping in downtown La Paz. Dine at one of the many local restaurants, or just walk the beautiful Malecon.
Or just lie around the pool and suntan!!
Hope to see you soon!

I am originally from Vancouver Canada, I relocated to La Paz in 2005 and quickly immersed myself in volunteer activities. While here you will enjoy your privacy and will want to return, many times over.
Dhorea Ryon purchased this house in 2003
I purchased my home in La Paz in 1999 and added the spacious casita in 2008. I found the city to be extremely clean and safe. I love the climate.
Sun, sun and more sun and a variety activities that will keep you as busy as you want to be.
We just spent the most wonderful time at the Casita on the beach! the house is in perfect shape, very clean and has everything you may need, it is truly like your "home away from home"; the pools are awesome, the garden, the view of the sea and La Paz at night...it cannot get any better. Dhorea is a wonderful host, she is was always available and very accommodating on our needs (keep up the good work!).
This house was furnished very comfortably, and located only steps from the beach. There are also 2 pools to choose from. The owner was very accomodating and happy to help with recommendations, etc.
Everything we needed was available to us, including an electric juicer and blender for smoothies and coctails.
It was fully-fenced for our dogs, and there is a cool observatory and exercise area on the roof.
The location was a little further from La Paz center than we preferred, but it was an easy 15-minute drive.
I would recommend this to friends.
It was exactly as advertised, the sun, sand and accommodations were great. Dhorea was very welcoming and made sure we had all we needed.
I will try to separate this review into two parts because we overall liked the place but had a bad experience with the rental policies towards the end of our stay. We give the location and home four stars and the rental policies one star and then round up to two stars overall for good measure.
The Property: Great location on the bay, we also really enjoyed having the use of the kayaks. You definitely need a car as it is not close to shops or restaurants. La Paz is great and the malecon is about a 20 minute drive from the home. The owner has put together a nice binder to orient you to restaurants and shops both nearby and in La Paz. This is a great launch pad to see La Paz and the surrounding beach areas. Beautiful and peaceful location.
Rental Policies and Owner Interaction: The owner was flexible with arrival time and received us personally. The owner has three large dogs on the property that are not friendly and bark a fair amount. The owner kept these dogs away from our children except for the last day when one of the workers brought one of the dogs to the front of the home where our children were playing. The owner lives in the home behind the unit and came by pretty much every day with one concern or another. We personally would have preferred a little more privacy, others may prefer a more engaged host but we really just wanted family time. The owner did not perform any sort of inspection with us when we arrived or left but retained our entire damage deposit for reasons that included a ripped piece of printer paper in the three ring binder of information on la paz and a disposable styrofoam cooler whose handle fell off when we picked it up. The owner also alleged that my children wet a bed they never slept in and broke two lamps we never used. So I would say buyer beware with this one, it is priced well but be prepared to have your deposit withheld and calculate that risk into the total price.
We loved the casita on the beach. We had everything we needed for our stay, and we loved using the kayaks. The rooftop deck was a great place to do yoga in the morning. Dhorea sent us to the best restaurants and places to shop. She was very helpful. You absolutely need a car when staying here, and we rented one in La Paz from Europcar for a fair price.

From San Jose (Cabo)
The airport is located in Cabo San Jose NOT Cabo San Lucas. There are 2 ways to get to La Paz. One way is going thru Los Barriles. This is a winding highway. The other way is to drive thru San Jose to Cabo and then drive towards Todos Santos and onto La Paz. It is 4 lane half way. You can easily and safely stop in Todos santos for lunch or dinner. It is only 45 min to La Paz from TS. You want to make sure you are not going to drive in the dark and if you do so watch for cows, goats etc. Whichever way you come will take you to center point that leads into la Paz.
You will be on a 6 lane highway and as you get closer, traffic becomes heavier. Watch on your left for a large rust coloured University UABCS.
