La Paz Visit March into April 2019
La Paz was enjoyable. It provided a much more authentic experience than Cabo ever could. It was a great chance for our kids to practice their Spanish and learn about good local Mexican food (mostly we ate a lot of street tacos). Balandra is one of the strangest and coolest beaches we have ever visited. Most of the water just disappeared while we were there and the whole place turned into a sandbar as the tide went out. La Paz is a substantial city and there is a lot of empty land and beaches surrounding it. Late March into early April was hotter than we thought it would be. We spent a lot of time in the water. We took a very unlikely drive up to San Juan de la Costa and were rewarded with cliffs, hot black sand beaches, beach combing for shells, dolphins jumping and pretty good impromptu snorkeling and the warmest water we had encountered on this trip. Nobody else was on any beach for the four or so hours we were in the area. There are many places to explore in and around La Paz where the tourists are not even there at all if you skip the tours and the Malecon (still cool) and Balandra (also cool).
All in all this condo is worth it. The value is good. The view from the balcony is completely tremendous. The area is fairly quiet and is gated and feels pretty safe. It seems like several expats live in this gated community. The manager did a very good job of connecting with us and responding to concerns (a toilet needed to be fixed, he fixed it, one of the TVs did not work, he fixed it). There is some room for improvement though. The plumbing is a little sketchy. The water pressure is low. The showers don't drain well. The kitchen sink is schizophrenic and sprayed us in the face from time to time. We found it odd that though this unit is "Master Penthouse #1" it shares a two-deep parking space with the other "Master Penthouse #2" which means you may need to make some phone calls and hope for the best to use your car when you want to. These are all things that are more common in Mexico and are tolerable if you know they are part of the deal. The lack of cleanliness was a disconnect for us. The shower had lots of hair in it from the previous guests. The trash cans were old and dirty and there was some trash left behind from the previous guests. The counter surround had dried food on it and needed to be wiped down. A little extra cleaning before we walked in would have made a huge difference to us (hence the one-star ding).
Hi Mr Morrill,
We are pleased to see that you've had a great time in La Paz and in our property!
I want to precise a few things, yes there are a parking space that you in some occasions share with the MPH-2, but you should have talked with our manager because we have not one but two private parking space and the 2nd one is totally private.
We will be at the property next week and do absolutely everything that has to be done to keep our 5 stars standard. When we were there in late November the property was extra clean in and out, we are very concerned about your comment and we will do what needs to be done to regularize the situation. We are extremely proud of our property and we will be taking care of business.
Thank you for your review and we hope to have you again as one of precious guests.

Lovely and well maintained.
The entire living space, indoor and out was comfortable and the view is amazing! We did have a small issue with hot water in the kitchen and master bath.
Spectacular view and accomodation. Highly recommended.
gracias por tu hospitalidad

Great views off the large deck with spacious bedrooms and large kitchen. You will not be disappointed with your stay. Thank you again Steve and Sophie for a fantastic stay and more great memories.
Every time we go in La Paz and stay in our property, we work very hard to improve the quality and details of the property. We are pride of the Penthouse and by having such a nice review it gives us the energy for continuing our work for our future guests! Once again, thank you for your review and we hope to have you again as one of our guests!

View of La Paz is amazing
Lots of space and condo is designed for privacy if you have two couples.
Location was perfect and close to Malacon. Found BACO outfitters for a great fishing trip.
