Your Little Piece of Paradise in La Paz, Baja

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Just one block from the Malecon and the beautiful Bay of La Paz, you are truly in another world. Inside the very private walls of the Casita, you will find a cool, inviting, and intoxicating sanctuary that will be difficult to leave. The main part of the Casita has two bedrooms, a large modern living area, and a gorgeous bathroom. It is separated from the kitchen by a beautiful courtyard with intimate areas for dining and relaxing. Casa Casita defines the notion of Mexican indoor/outdoor living at its best.

We have furnished Casa Casita with an eclectic mix of wonderful 19th century Indian, Mexican, and Chinese furniture--but we have kept it simple. Both bedrooms have queen-sized beds with 300 thread-count, soft cotton linens and down pillows. The floors are cool concrete. Each bedroom is air conditioned, and large ceiling fans circulate the air in the living room and kitchen. There is also broadband internet (wi-fi and wired), cable TV with CNN, and a sound system that is iPod-ready. The kitchen is outfitted with a six-burner gas stove, new cookware, and service for six. You would have a hard time asking for more!

Casa Casita is centrally located in the heart of La Paz. It is within walking distance to an incredible array of restaurants, grocery stores and shops. And, of course, the Malacon is only a block away--perfect for a stroll at sunset along the Bay. There is even a Spanish language school next door. The beaches are a ten-minute drive from town. World-class diving, snorkeling, and fishing are all within easy reach in the Sea of Cortez!

About Paul

I'm a travel photographer, and along with my wife, a travel writer. My wife is also an artist, so you can imagine the attention to detail we've given to our casita

Paul purchased this house in 2005

Why Paul chose La Paz

We love La Paz because it's a real city - not a tourist trap. We love walking on the boardwalk early in the morning and around sunset, where we get to see locals - entire families - doing the same thing: enjoying the setting and the vibe.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow, what an amazing place to stay while in La Paz! It is literally 1 block off the Malecon and close to everything. You will need a car to visit a couple of the far out beaches but the local beaches are within walking distance. I ca't say enough amazing things about this place. It is spacious yet cozy and very inviting once inside. Truthfully, I was not expecting it to be as nice as it was from the first glance of the outside but I was blown away once I entered the house. The main building has a beautifully furnished living room and two spacious bedrooms. I loved the furnishings in this space alot, very eclectic and comfortable. The living room has a TV and DVD player and all three rooms have fans and powerful A/C units. You really only need one AC unit on during the day. The only time we had both on was when we slept at night and it was very comfortable. The bathroom and the kitchen are separate from the main living area and are equally amazing. I LOVED the bathroom (I know, kind of a weird thing to say!) It was spacious and unique. Loved the decorations, double sinks and concrete shower. It can get a little hot in there but there are plenty of fans to help cool it off. I loved the touch of the exposed shelves under the sinks and wicker baskets filled with bathroom staples, beach towels and bath towels. Everything you needed was there and readily available for use. In order to get to the kitchen you had to walk through the courtyard. I LOVED the courtyard. It is full of plants and flowers and is a very cool place just to hang out. They have a spacious sitting area with comfortable loungers and tables so you can just relax with a nice cold beer. I loved the touch of the fairy lights throughout the courtyard which you could use as your only source of light at night. It made the courtyard seem like a magical place. The kitchen is huge and fully equipped. Can't say much about the kitchen cause besides cooking breakfast once we did not really use it. We went out to eat everyday (so easy to do cause all the restaurants you can dream of are about 30 seconds away from the house!) But if you wanted to cook at home, you absolutely can, you have everything you need. I would highly recommend this rental. It is in a great location and it is beautifully equipped. The owners, Joan and Paul are amazing as well. They were very responsive and answered all of our questions. There is a local woman (can't remember her name off the top of my head) who will meet you and open t

Excellent place to stay for a visit in La Paz

  • 4 of 5

Casa Casita is a lovely retreat from the city streets of La Paz and it is located just one block from the Malacon. We enjoyed our coffee in the open air courtyard in the mornings and our cocktails in the evening. The kitchen is great and well equipped, the beds are comfy. I recommend this as a great place to stay.

Sample 'real' living in La Paz

  • 4 of 5

We spent 10 days in January in this interesting casita; rooms surrounding a pretty courtyard seem typically tropical. Our favorite feature was the courtyard with lounging area, large rustic table and stools and bougainvillea covered roof. The kitchen is nicely equipped, bedrooms comfortable, the wall decorations tastefully artsy. Being a block from the malecon and an easy 10 minute walk from the real downtown is convenient. At Revolution and Degollado, we were happy to find Madero Mercado, a small version of markets in mainland Mexico cities. A word of caution to light sleepers- across the street are crowing roosters and next door a barking dog. But ... Experiencing cultural differences a little closer up is one of the appeals of VRBOs rather than hotels.

The description and pictures tell it like it is! Paul was immediately responsive to our inquiries and offered helpful information for flying to La Paz from Tijuana- a flight we highly recommend as comfortable and economical.

Stylish comfortable little house

  • 4 of 5

Lovely, stylish little house in a friendly neighbourhood. A bit far to walk to the centre of town.. Perfect, punctual, helpful management.

Our family of 4 stayed 9 days and felt as if we lived there. ;)

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. The location was perfect to access both the waterfront and the old portion of town. The house was very comfortable and the yard covered by wildly flowering bougainvillea which shaded the courtyard and made for a very beautiful place to relax when not out walking the town. Would definitely go back and stay here again.

Wonderful location for a visit to La Paz

  • 5 of 5

Paul and Joan's Casita was just delightful. We arrived the afternoon of the end of Carnival and were delighted after walking one short block to the Malecon to witness a fantastic parade complete with floats, music and tons of enthusiasm by the locals. The Casita has a beautiful patio which was decked out in Bougainvillea blossoms during our visit. All the rooms were ample and furnished as expected. Paul's handbook is helpful with extensive lists of where to shop, restaurants, tours, etc. Grocery shopping is a short 5 blocks away. Being just one block away from the Malecon/Beach is a real plus as it is such a pleasant place for taking a walk, seeing the sunset and just hanging out to watch the local activity. We certainly recommend this Casita for a charming stay in La Paz.
