About Ruth-Ann Stewart
Hi We are an adventurous couple who love traveling the world. We bought a place in Arizona (#432395) thinking that the dryness would be great but we missed the water (being from the west coast). So the Baja was a perfect balance of the two. We wanted a place that was private, had a gym and and a pool. This place is perfect for that. Now that Ted is retired he has lots of time to keep our new home in tip top shape. Since we are still traveling abroad we thought it would be nice to be able to share our special spot with other mature couples (over the age of 40 please) looking for a safe and adventurous vacation.
Ruth-Ann Stewart purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Ruth-Ann Stewart chose Colina del Sol
We love that the pool and hot tub are right in front of our patio and that there is a gym beside our unit as well as a charcoal Barbeque . Also there are only two units on the ground floor. Very private. We love our peek-a-boo view of the ocean and the great sea breezes we get because we are on a hill (colina del sol means hill of the sun). The condominium only has 16 units which makes it more personal. There is a mix of Mexican and foreign owners so you get to practice your Spanish if you want. The Malecon being so close is a plus.We just walk down to it and choose a spot on the beach, go to a restaurant or participate in a water sport. It is fabulous!!
What makes this Condo unique
With only two units on the ground floor it is like having your own pool and hot tub! Hardly anybody uses it. Having a gym and a BBQ right beside us is so convenient. There is a huge family size Hammock which is a dream come true for us. Our dream was being in the tropics hanging out in our hammock watching the day go by. The new walk in shower with two shower heads is great. No more fighting over the water! There is even a little bench to sit down in it if you are exhausted from a hard day at the beach. This home is close to everything and yet so peaceful. A nice place to reflect on life.

Paradise in La Paz
This was our first visit to La Paz and both the city and our accommodations were great. Malecon is 15 minutes walking distance away, with restaurants and tours not much farther. There is a steep hill up to the condo, we managed to walk it every day but you can always uber, taxi or rent a car if that is not your thing. We enjoyed the pool, patio and hot tub - most of the time we were the only people there. The afternoon sun on the patio could be quite warm but the condo remained cool. It was nice to have a washer to clean our clothes and towels. Took a bus to Balandra Beach, swam with the whale sharks and went to the farmers market. Overall, we had a wonderful time.
We enjoyed our one month stay at Ruth Ann's poolside condo. Great layout and spacious suite. The condo could use some new bedding, bath and kitchen towels. Antonio, the property manager was excellent and very helpful.
Our La Paz hilltop home away from home
Extremely clean apartment with open concept and great lighting. The king size bed was very comfortable and more spacious than we are used to. The hill leading up to Colina del Sol is not to be underestimated - but that didn't stop our bike rides into town. If you prefer to walk, it's only about 10 minutes to the Malecon and 30 minutes to La Perla. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, we cooked all but 2 meals! Ruth-Ann responded quickly to our inquiries during the week and Tony, the on site property manager, was easily available via text or phone. He even met us at a local coffee shop to guide us to the apartment! Thanks again Tony! Plus, you cant beat the 15 foot walk to the pool and hot tub.
Thank you for your great review. We are glad that you enjoyed our bit of paradise. Yes we really try to emphasize the 'hill' though you can not really appreciate it until you are walking up it!! Having the pool right out front is a plus as well as the shower to wash away sand brought back from the beach. We hope to see you again soon. Gracias Ruth-Ann and Ted
Beautiful and comfortable. Thanks, Kiki
Great place to stay!
Ruth Ann was very helpful. Always just a phone call or text away. Very quiet. Loved the hammock! We didn’t rent a car, just bikes. A little bit of extra exercise going up the hill to the condo! Probably would rent a car next time. Very clean. Had the poolside to ourselves. Definitely would rent it again.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon!! The Hammock is a favorite for me too. Easy to spends hours in it with a book. The hill up to the condo is a great cardio workout for sure. Ruth-Ann
This property is on a nice hill overlooking the sea and close to the popular Malecon.
The complex is safe and secure. The unit is tidy, well organized and very functional.
The owners are very responsive and are a click away from explaining anything that needs it.
We will definitely go back if we go to La Paz again.
We are glad that you enjoyed and hope to see you again soon. Ruth Ann
We are on a hill over looking La Paz and the Bay. There are great beaches in the area for all kinds of water sports. there are also golf courses if you are a golf enthusiast.
One of the highlights of this area is the close proximity of the boardwalk where you can walk for over 5 miles in either direction.. The locals and visitors can be seen strolling along it in the evening. Restaurants line this street as well.
Here are directions to our place from near the malecon:
come from town towards the beach on Alvaro Obregon. Turn right on Heroes del 47, see BreezeMart on corner. Go 6 blocks to Ignacio Manuel Altamirano. A large SCT building on the left hand side. Turn left on Altamirano. Go straight down the hill one block to and over Fransisco King Rondero and up the steep hill. Make a left at the very top of hill. We are the first condo.
