Amazing base in La Paz

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here. This house is so comfortable and pleasant. We enjoy all parts- the patios, the kitchen, the living room, everything! The location is perfect. It is across the street from a very well stocked grocery store, a half a block from a restaurant with great burgers (Tres Virgines) or amazing fish tacos (McFishers) and 1.5 blocks from our favorite coffee shop (Doce Cuarenta.) We have a car to go to the nearby beaches during the day but once we get back, this neighborhood and home have everything we need to have a relaxing and delicious stay in La Paz. Enjoy!

Charming place with thoughtful, helpful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed with Christine for a week and it was wonderful. She was informative and helpful. I really appreciated all the thoughtful little touches to Casa de la Vaquita, and her advice on where to find entertainment was spot on!

Wonderful getaway

My girlfriends and I had a wonderful stay at Christine's property. The place was lovely and comfortable, well-appointed, and in walking distance to everything we needed. Christine was a generous host and a delight to deal with. Highly recommended.

One of a kind property- highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of 7 stayed at this property combined with the adjoining apartment. This property was a wonderful home away from home. We loved coming home each night and were truly sad to leave when our vacation in La Paz ended. It is such a cheerful place. The decorations and attention to detail are remarkable. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to use. The owners also let us borrow coolers and beach chairs for our trips to Balandra beach. The property is in a fantastic location- across the street from a grocery store and a block away from several great restaurants and cafes. Highly recommend.

Proximity to the heart of La Paz which is the Malecon (beach boardwalk).

Corner of Miguel Hidalgo and Francisco Madero. DO NOT use Google Maps, they send you far inland!

From the Malecon going North, pass the Bismarkcito restaurant, turn right at the OXXO and go up hill one block, pass Belisario Dominguez, the house os on the left on the corner of Francisco Madero. Gray with white iron work, baby cow on the roof.
