About Jack Roose
We lived in Hawaii in Hawaii Kai on the water for over 25 years and love to travel. While we love Hawaii, we tired of the traffic and congestion. We love to travel and have traveled much of the world and began looking for a new location that would offer us the sun, water, and adventure we wanted without the daily hassles of traffic and congestion. We discovered La Paz and really enjoyed all that La Paz has to offer and the communities making up CostaBaja resort. After three years, we decided to travel a year and rent our place out when not using it. We have since purchased a home in Daytona Beach which has become our primary residence.
Jack Roose purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Jack Roose chose La Paz
La Paz is a fantastic city with all that a traditional Mexican town can offer as well as all the conveniences of major US cities. You can spend time in the traditional Mexican town but also find all you need in newer US-like major stores -- there are many new and older traditional groceries and newer ones such as Mega. WalMart, Home Depot, Sam's Club, etc. The Mega market complex has a Platino movie theater with most first run English as well as Spanish movies in a 'lazy-Boy' chair type of seating -- better than US and 1/2 the cost! There are many terrific restaurants, both 'hole in the wall' Mexican taco places to upscale specialty restaurants. CostaBaja has along the marina some of the best in town with Azul offering innovative menus, an Italian restaurant, a unique sushi bar offering the freshest seafood, There is also a *** hotel with restaurant and bar as well as a new Hyatt about to open. For golfers we have a challenging Gary Player designed golf course woven throughout the property so you constantly see the contrast of a well-kept green golf course with the backdrop of the many colored azure Sea of Cortez. Trips to the many water adventures -- whale and sale lion watching, diving, snorkeling, sailing, paddling, kayaking -- all are offered within the resort. The malecon in downtown La Paz is like the area along the SF Bay in Sausalito -- active all hours of the day, kids and adults, shops and restaurants, and most weekend have special activities or events planned. La Paz has it all, including the culture of Mexico, CostaBaja is a self-contained paradise, with easy access to all the city has to offer. And we haven't even mentioned the day trips to another fun little town, Todos Santos, famous for the California Hotel, and Cabo!!
What makes this Villa unique
Our home offers a number of benefits including: -- fantastic views day and night to the Sea of Cortez, the lake and fountain, and the city from a large terrace with room for entertaining friends -- a comfortable home prepared as a full-time residence rather than a short-term vacation home -- a remodeled kitchen with greatly expanded storage and counter space, set up so a cook can actually use it and entertain -- a custom trellis over the courtyard that provides a shady area for dining out, reading, or talking with friends during the warmer times of the year; with a roll down shade for added privacy and temperature control -- located on a cul-de-sac with only two detached homes for added privacy -- steps from the Las Colinas pool used only by the few residents -- two large screen Tvs with Netflix and Qello (music concerts and DVDs) through Roku. -- high speed internet -- all within a gated, 24 hour secure safe environment

Great Condo and a View to Die For
This is the third time my husband and I have rented Jack’s condo. We are never disappointed. The condo is well-stocked and comfortable. Jack and his property manager are attentive and responded quickly to any request or question we had. The Puerto Cortes Resort is in excellent condition with a wonderful restaurants, marina store, beach club and other amenities. The golf course was in pristine condition and any golfer that comes to La Pa needs to play this course!
Doug and Gina, as always, it was a pleasure having you as our guest for a month. We are glad you had a chance to enjoy the Resort's Beach Club. amenities and restaurants as well as the beautiful and challenging golf course. We hope you are able to visit again, and we wish you safe travels until we have an opportunity to host you again.
Very well planned community.
Jack’s house was so great. Incredible view. The community is so well planned, the marina area is beautiful with excellent restaurants.
If someone were to grant me one wish, I would own a home in Las Colinas.
beautiful views, beach goes on forever, condo is immaculate
you;ll need a car to get around, terrific place.
Great view, long walk to beach
Nice property with a great view. The walk to the CostaBaja resort amenities and beach takes about 20 minutes. Downhill to beach. We did not have a vehicle, so we walked this at least once per day. Good exercise.
The property is on the hillside and has a panoramic view of the sea. Straight-on sunset view. Wonderful night view of the lights of La Paz.
Taxi ride to downtown La Paz for 2 persons was ~200 pesos.
Beautiful home and tranquil setting. Owner was awesome to work with
This review is long overdue but I kept meaning to write a review and before I knew it, it's been nearly a year--my apologies!! We stayed in in this property in June of 2017. It's a beautiful home that overlooks part of a resort and out over the Sea of Cortez. The views are amazing and the home is quite spacious. The home/rooms/beds were super comfortable and we used the infinity pool that was right next door often! Jack was soooo accomodating. When we decided to extend our stay in La Paz for a few more days, Jack made it happen and simply asked us to send him a check for the difference. I appreciated the simplicity and the fact that he was willing to do that. If you are considering this home for your stay in La Paz, you won't be disappointed!
Thanks for your comments. We were glad you enjoyed LaPaz, the CostaBaja Resort, and our home so that you wanted to extend your original stay. We're happy to have been able to accomodate your desired extension, and were pleased to have you as our guests.
The resort hotel offers full spa services. A vendor in the marina offers a range of water activities including whale and sea watching and swimming with, snorkeling, and diving. Evening cultural events often hosted in resort. The City of La Paz offers a full range of Mexican cultural events, shopping of all types, and all forms of recreation. ATM in the resort as well as many banks in town. The resort is very-self contained and also within easy reach of all that the city of La Paz offers
