Our home is located in the Puerto Cortez Resort (formerly CostaBaja) in the Las Colinas hillside homes. These homes overlook the Sea of Cortez, the city of La Paz, and a small lake with fountain. We have a Beach Club membership which offers you access to the Beach Club, beach side restaurant and bar, large beach-side infinity pool, jacuzzi, beach, showers, small gym, and tennis courts,. It is ideally situated as the last of only two detached houses on a small cul-de-sac off the main entry road which provides greater privacy. It is only steps away from the beautiful infinity swimming pool overlooking the Sea and City. You have a wonderful view of the Sea from the dining room, living room, and master bedroom. It is a gated, 24 hour secure and very safe neighborhood. The view from the home and pool are magical, both during the sunny days and in the evenings when the city and fountain lights sparkle.
Your vacation home has 2 bedrooms plus an office / den and 2 full bathrooms and comes fully furnished with everything you need to enjoy your stay in La Paz. We purchased the home as a primary residence and so have made numerous improvements to the typical home in the neighborhood. Because we enjoy entertaining and cooking, we have significantly modified the kitchen and added 8 kitchen cabinets as well as 2 very large pantry cabinets. The kitchen has GE Profile refrigerator, convection oven and stovetop, dishwasher, and microwave as well as other small appliances, and a large double sink with sprayer. Off the kitchen is a dining area with table and chairs with a direct view over the lake and the Sea.
The main entrance to the house is through a courtyard gate into a garden area with tropical plants and outdoor canvas chairs for reading, having a glass of wine, listening to music, or talking with friends. The courtyard makes for a great extension to the house, especially in the warmer weather since it is shaded with our custom wooden pergola with ceiling fan and light. Opening the sliding doors to the courtyard and front terrace provides pleasant sea breezes through the main living areas. There is also an entrance from the carport to the office / den.
The living room has a large comfortable sofa, leather chair and ottoman, coffee table, 2 end tables, and 2 counter-height leather high-backed stools that can be positioned for greater seating capacity. Enjoy watching your 55 inch flat screen high definition TV, which offers all the free entertainment, news, sports, and music channels associated with Roku, as well as Nextflx and Qello, which offers a wide variety of music concerts.
The large master bedroom is furnished with a king-sized bed, a large 9 drawer dresser and mirror, 2 smaller bedside dressers, a floor lamp, and a 40 inch HD flat screen TV. You can relax in bed and watch boats go by in the Sea of Cortez. The en suite master bath has a double sink vanity, drawer and shelf storage, and a large mirror. There is a large walk-in tiled rain shower and a jetted bathtub, as well as a walk-in closet, and a separate toilet closet. A large linen closet is at the entrance to the master bedroom, and there is a sliding door to the large front terrace with table and chairs on the terrace.
The guest bedroom contains a queen-sized bed, a large 10 drawer dresser with mirror, a smaller 4 drawer bedside dresser, and a small walk-in closet. Next to the 2nd bedroom is a 2nd full bath with walk-in rain shower and a single sink vanity with storage. The office / den is across from the second bath. It is furnished with a small desk, an L-shaped desk extension, lamp, bookcases, a reading library, and a monitor to connect to your laptop. There is wireless internet throughout the house. In this area is a laundry closet with stackable washer and dryer and cleaning supplies.
A 32 foot front terrace with overhead fan offers a direct view of the Sea of Cortez, the small lake with fountain, and the city of La Paz. This is the perfect spot for your morning coffee or evening drinks, and provides spectacular sunsets. There is also a small 8 foot garden area. On the terrace, you will find a counter height table and 4 chairs for dining out and outdoor folding canvas chairs for additional seating. We also provide a card table and 4 chairs for entertaining larger groups.
Each room has individual room-controlled A/Cs, and there are ceiling fans in the master bedroom, the living room, and on the front terrace and in the courtyard. The infinity pool, steps from our house, is a beautiful 40 meter pool, with sunny as well as shaded areas furnished with loungers and a covered area of tables and chairs for eating and spending time with family and friends. The sunsets while enjoying the pool are spectacular.
There are 4 major restaurants within the resort, all offering marina-front or interior dining. Azul Marina is one of the best restaurants in La Paz with a good wine list; La Barcaccia offers Italian food and pizza, as well as firepits and a small sports / wine bar; El Odyaka offers a sushi bar and Japanese food; and Steinbecks is a restaurant in the hotel with an extensive bar and tequila selection. The hotel also offers a casual restaurant for breakfast and lunch. For a relaxing morning enjoy the marina-front café , and in the afternoon enjoy the full-service spa in the hotel. Finally, there is also a convenience store offering all sorts of items as well as lunch.
If you enjoy boating, there is an outer large boat marina as well as an inner one for smaller boats. Boat rentals can be arranged as well as having two adventure companies offering various outings including trips to deserted islands, fishing, and swimming with sea lions or whale sharks.
While every unit in Las Colinas offers a great place to spend a few days or weeks vacationing, or as a longer-term residence, we believe you will agree that our home provides a very comfortable home suitable for short or longer-term rentals
