Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Free Broadband internet access on computer and wi-fi for your laptops and devices.

This luxury condominium is the perfect location for two or three couples to get-away and decompress. (Sorry, no children under 14 allowed per HOA.) The condominium building is in the beautiful La Paz Resort of La Concha. Guests in the condo are entitled to full use of the La Concha Resort, including room service, workout facilities, restaurant, Palapa Bar, and The Cortez Club 5-Star PADI dive shop.

You will find this a great place to look out onto the beautiful smooth bay from the condominium building's spa and infinity pool (shown in picture on left), as well as from the condo's own patio, six stories up. The beach is only ten feet away from the swimming pool and outdoor spa.

This penthouse condominium occupies two floors, and offers over 2800 square feet of fully air-conditioned, living space. It sits on the top two floors of the six-story building which is serviced by an elevator. (In picture of the condominium building, our condo is the top two floors on the right side of the building- the part you see jetting out is part of one of the two bedrooms upstairs.) The upstairs has two large bedrooms (king bed in one and two queens in the other) and two full bathrooms.

The lower level of the condo has a full kitchen, the Master Bedroom (Two twin beds or can be made into a king by maid), two more full bathrooms, the living room, dining room and the very large patio, which has a built-in gas barbecue. There are also two televisions (each with DVD player - bring down a few of your favorites), Satellite TV and ceiling fans throughout. Additional amenities include everything you would expect: telephones, iron and ironing board, dishwasher, quality flatware and other necessary cooking items, blender, toaster, coffeemaker, fresh bed linens, hair dryers, Royal Velvet bath towels and bath mats, beach towels, complete plastic ware for taking meals to the swimming pool, washer and dryer, etc. Basically, just bring your bathing suit and a few t-shirts.

You can sit on the spacious balcony in complete privacy and take in the incredible sunsets over the bay while sipping your favorite drink. You can have room service deliver appetizers and drinks or put some fresh fish on the built-in gas barbecue.

About Paul Anderson

Maureen and Skip. Look for COOMBER FAMILY RANCH WINES on Facebook.

Paul Anderson purchased this condo in 1995

Why Paul Anderson chose Baja California Sur

This unit is very comfortable and quiet. We've gone to great measures to continually update the property. Being in the La Concha resorts affords an even higher level of security and comfort with room service available, a restaurant and two bars. La Paz is a paradise location. The people are friendly and there are so many things to do.

What makes this condo unique

Incredible sunsets, beautiful beach, quality food in the resort, two bars, great restaurants about one mile down the road in the marina, friendly people...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Skip!

La Paz was amazing, thank you so much again. Everything was fine. We had a

little problem witht he bathroom toilet but it only needed to be plunged.



The dolphins were incredible, that was one of our favorite things. We also

had a great time fishing. I caught two fish and David caught one, we saw

some whales and a marlin and a manta ray. We went wave-running twice, he

really enjoyed that.



I think that was it, we ate at telecote beach and liked it and then ate at

Rancho Viejo a bunch. I wish we had gone out more but I was just so tired

by the end of the day. But it was amazing and we had a great time. Let me

know if you need naything else.



Love, melissa

An oasis in coastal Mexican paradise

  • 5 of 5

Todo bueno! Perfect set up for our visit. Everyone was friendly and helpful at the condos in La Concha. Guard gate provided extra feeling of security, even if we didn't need it. Kids had their own bedrooms and bath in the condo. Beautiful pool and beach all to ourselves one of the days. When we weren't eating at the LaConcha restaurant or catching the sunsets at the bar by the Cortez Club, we would take quick trips into town to explore and discover. Some of our favorites: Rancho Viejo for taco plates, Doce Cuarenta for coffee and pastries, J&R Ribs for BBQ, Azul Marino for upscale dinner at CostaBaja, Vrentino Baking Co for breakfast and of course, the polka dot painted tree place on the Malecon for ice cream. Used BajaFun at CostaBaja for our snorkelling with the whale sharks...wow! Quick 20-minute boat ride and you're swimming with gentle giants. Don't miss this thrill! Spent an afternoon vegetating at Balandra Beach. Didn't have time for scuba diving or fishing this trip...next time! Cheers and hasta luego amigos.

Lovely spacious place, right on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Many excellent things to say about this condo. It's quite large (3 very large BR, 4 bathrooms), overall excellent facilities, and wonderful helpful staff people. Access to the hotel pool and restaurant was a bonus. The property manager Paul was very quick to help with a couple small glitches. We suggest you bring your own CDs for good variety, and maybe earplugs too --- Fri and Sat night beach parties and music from the city seem to go until 4 a.m. Closing your windows can help, and fortunately there are ceiling fans everywhere. Weeknights were pretty quiet. We hope the living room furniture will be replaced soon: while lovely to look at, the couches were almost painful to sit on (old worn-out cushions). In other ways, all the furniture and kitchen supplies were quite good. Lovely terrace and lounge chairs. The location of this condo is excellent if you have a car (not sure about bus service) --- a short distance from the Malecon. We spent quite a lot of time exploring the city and walking the Malecon, and really liked it.

La Concha- wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5

The 2 story beachfront condo we rented was spacious, beautifully decorated and the views were spectacular. The restaurant next door served excellent food (service was a bit slow but.)and the servers were very friendly and welcoming. The condo even had housekeeping services- she was so nice and helpful. And the maintenance people- they made you feel like you lived there. It was a very pleasant experience and really made our vacation to La Paz special. There was also internet access and wifi so you could connect with your family in the US. I would highly recommend this condo- and the booking was easy and the owner gave us alot of info. I must mention that there is a rooster next door who is tethered that crows almost all day long. (its loud) .it is sad to have to see his poor life and you cannot help him and you have to listen to him before the crack of dawn until.....

Very Nice Penthouse, Wonderful Views, Very Spacious, Private Gated Community

  • 5 of 5

What a great stay here. Last year we stayed at Hotel La Concha next door and the rooms were small and the AC units were just not very good. This year we discovered the condos next door and rented the penthouse unit to share with 2 of us, and our friends found a 2 bed suite one floor below. We all really liked that it was a private gated entry and quite literally had our own swimming pool down on the beach. We SCUBA and fish with the Cortez Club, which is just a short walk from the unit, and you can also use the hotels amenities if desired. I would highly recommend staying in this unit.!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this Penthouse Condo

  • 4 of 5

Hello Paul,

I would first like to thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful condo. My buddy Marty and I really enjoyed our stay. It's been at least 5 years since we last visited La Paz, and it was so nice to be back. The condo was in excellent condition, however there was an issue with the electricity when we arrived. We made every effort to get the electricity running, including working with maintenance without success. As a result, we ended up staying in one of the La Concha hotel rooms for a night. The staff was very accommodating and made us feel welcome. By the next day, the electricity at the condo was up and running and we were able to move our things in. Apparently, the issue with the meter for that specific unit. Something you may want to validate has been fixed and permanently resolved. Everything in the room was very clean and functional. The only recommendation I would make is to consider replacing the living room couch. The nails or staples that are used to secure the fabric to the frame are starting to wear through and it makes laying or sitting on the couch uncomfortable, and may pose a safety hazard. We also experienced issues with the front door. On a number of occasions, the keypad code would not work. I don't think it was a function issue with the keypad, more than it was the technique of turning and pushing the door knob all at the same time. Maybe we were just doing it wrong. You may want to check to confirm the front door is functioning correctly. Paul, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your home and these were just a few observations that we wanted to bring to your attention. I hope to bring my wife and son later this summer so they can experience the excitement of the amazing fishing La Paz. Thank You!

Regards,

Anthony

Fabulous Family Holiday Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your condo with us. We brought 9 people ages 14-70 on this trip. This unit was perfect for our family. Plenty of room for everyone and having 4 bathrooms made getting ready to go out a breeze.

We all especially enjoyed the hot tub. That became our 4 pm destination most days.

The condo itself was exactly as described, very lovely and friendly feeling. Paul and Penny were very gracious and helpful.

It was also nice having the adjoining hotel, with kayaks, etc for our use. The first night we were tired and happy to walk over for a lovely Mexican dinner. We also discovered when we were missing a couple of ingredients for an at home dinner, we could purchase a few things from the dining room. So convenient! Then of course the hotel has a great outdoor bar. It was a treat to stop by and meet other visitors and of course the bar staff. On New Year's Eve we arrived to find them closing for the night, and our waiter graciously offered to stay long enough for us to have a celebratory cocktail. Great service!

This experience was nothing but delightful. On the advice of another guest we became acquainted with Hector on the Malecon who arranged for two boats to take us out to see the Whale Sharks. His price was very reasonable at just under $25 per person. So off we went, full of curiosity. Our family had a grand time snorkeling with these amazing giant gentle creatures. What a highlight to the trip.

We didn't make it to the much recommended El Rustico Restaurant, my friends all say it is numero uno! However, we did really enjoy The Tale Hunter Restaurant.

We left with fond feelings for La Paz and La Concha Condos. Will be back for sure. Thank you.

Connie

Map

La Paz is a place that you won’t ever forget once you’ve been fortunate enough to visit. There are a number of white sand beaches, including Balandra Bay and Tecolote Beach. We recommend that visitors make sure to take the following day trips:

1. Snorkel with the sea lions: Drive to Tecolote Beach and negotiate with the people in front of the first restaurant on the right. They’ll provide you with the snorkels, masks and fins and a great lunch on the beach after you’ve had your time in the water at the tip of the island with the colony of sea lions.

2. Tecolote Beach Day: Hang out on the beach at Tecolote Beach and just enjoy the sun, clear water and activities. There are wave runners and other water toys to rent and several good beach restaurants/bars.

3. Todos Santos: Drive the 50 minutes to Todos Santos and enjoy the fantastic shopping. There are numerous shops with curios and arts. Los Adobes is a fabulous high-end restaurant that we never miss.
