About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Welcome to La Paz and my home at Villas La Posada. Below is information to help you get to know La Paz and the accomodations at this beautiful complex. My Villa is Number 006. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions! You can pay by personal check, Pay Pal or credit card.

Villas La Posada is a new complex located in La Paz, Mexico - the capital of California Baja Sur on the Sea of Cortez. This complex can best be described as a boutique villa/ condominium residence. The Bay of La Paz, which is a wonderful place to walk and search for sea shells, is only

a half block from the Villas La Posada complex. This unit is located on the ground floor of the complex providing direct access to the pool and Jacuzzi area. This Villa has two large bedrooms, each with a queen size bed and two full bathrooms each with a large walk-in shower. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern amenities to make you feel as though you are in your own kitchen. For those of you who like to cook, you will also have a 15 bottle spice rack to use!

In addition to this beautifully decorated Villa, you will have access to other outdoor amenities to include an outdoor cooking and eating area next to the pool. “The Palapa” offers a large gas grill, full size refrigerator, sink, bathroom, tables and chairs for dining and/or cocktails. All guests also have access to the rooftop terrace and hot-tub of the “Tower” – which offers beautiful views of the Bay, the city of La Paz and spectacular sunsets.

There is a large grocery store within walking distance from the complex. Access to the Malecon and La Paz’s downtown area is extremely easy and just a short drive away. The Malecon offers a beautiful waterfront walkway, where people jog in the morning and stroll in the evening, and seaside restaurants and shops.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our first time in Baja California Sur, and La Paz in particular, and what an experience. First off, the house is in fact finer than described, and quite a pleasure to spend time in, especially when it's hot in the afternoon. The AC works perfectly. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped, and for an amateur cook like myself, makes cooking out of La Paz's terrific markets a breeze. The host provides a wide range of information on La Paz's charms and interests, which were highly useful to us first timers. The pool was an unexpected pleasure in the hot afternoons, and the view of the Bay and the sunsets from the roof terrace on the adjacent tower were splendid. It should be noted that the condo is not on the Malecón, but is located almost on the Bay, about a mile or so further north. The area is pleasant and safe. In fact, we didn't find any part of La Paz to be unsafe. There are large US style big box stores very close, within a mile. That said, it is very easy and fast to drive to the Malecón, which we usually did several times each day. The host was fantastic during our stay, and that included Hurricane Odile! So I can certify that the condo is hurricane ready. With her help, we were able to weather the attendant difficulties with minimal discomfort. A truly outstanding host.

It is winter in Alberta

Thank you Lea for sharing with us. We enjoyed your very well maintained condo as a launch point for daily excursions. It has everything. Nothing has been missed. Access to the Los Posada Hotel provides the added comforts of a major resort without the headaches.

Thank you

Until we return

A quiet, relaxing, hidden oasis.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay immensely. Our place was well equipped for our needs. Comfortable and quiet and safe. The pool area with its well maintained gardens was ideal for sunning and swimming. We would start and end our day with this marvelous pool area.

A rooftop terrace provided us a wonderful viewpoint for sunrises and sunsets watching!

Villas La Posadas is located near to grocery stores and 'El Centro' with short drive. Great for short excursions out and back. It really felt like an oasis.

We would definitely return for another stay! Loved it! Thanks!

We can't say enough about Lea and her place!

  • 5 of 5

Leas condo was exactly what we were looking for. We were in La Paz for a medical procedure in which we need to stay just shy of a month. We wanted somewhere comfortable, affordable, and walking distance to the beach. Leas place met all these needs.

If there is even the very slightest issue, Leas friend and property manager is literally there in the blink of an eye!

I am a nut about my Matress and sheets, and Leas mattress was SO comfortable and the sheets were a soft and high thread count. Some folks don't provide that level of comfort for a rental so I truly appreciated the extra detail.

I absolutely recommend leas condo!

Lea's villa is artfully and beautifully furnished. We slept, cooked and vacationed well!

  • 5 of 5

The Villas La Posada property is beautifully maintained. We enjoyed the flowers, pool and palapa areas. The peaceful city of La Paz, the warmth of the people and the beaches just out of town will lure us back again. Lea's thoughtful notes and easy communication were well appreciated. Highly recommend!

Our stay at Lea's Beautiful Villa was excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is everything that Lea said it would be and more. It was very clean and well kept and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was well stocked with everything you need in the kitchen even including some condiments that were left by other visitors which always helps. We would certainly go back again and hope to in the near future. We needed a bit of help the first night as we locked ourselves out but Max came to our rescue and let us in.

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an authentic Mexican vacation. The restaurants in the area was fantastic and the people were very friendly. Everything is very inexpensive and of excellent quality.

We enjoyed several of the beautiful beaches in the area with the pristine white sand and the crystal clear water. We went to see the Sea lion colony and watch the baby sea lions that acted much like puppies that were so curious in the water when you were snorkeling as well as an opportunity to swim with the whale sharks which was fantastic.

Thank you Lea, will look forward to our next visit.

Very clean villa and poolside area

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, all amenities that we needed were available for us. The property has been well maintained both inside and the grounds itself. We were impressed with the imaculate care of the pool area. Love that there were two bathrooms for our use! The roof of the tower was amazing to see the sunsets and to look around the beach, ocean and down onto the villa pool area. Easy access to grocery stores. A nice home away from home!
