La Paz cottage description

The HoneyMoon Hut is no longer accepting reservations.

Our beachfront cottage is your home away from it all. But close enough to enjoy all that the city and surrounding area have to offer!
***Looking for a little piece of paradise to call your own? Ask about out HOME HUNTERS SPECIAL***
We call it the HoneyMoon Hut, and it doesn't matter if your are newly weds, almost weds or coming for a second honeymoon, you will love it here. we have hosted many singles here for R&R, business or home buying. La Paz is a center of eco-tourism. and our cottage is right on the beach and surrounded by a biological preserve. This is a birder's delight: 60 species of birds call our neighborhood home.
Including a pair of great horned owls. Osprey wheel and soar and swoop near our pool. Wake to the
sounds of frigate birds as they steal from each other, baby ospreys squeal and demand food. Hawks
swoop, and even the lowly vulture visits here. Some of the best shell collecting is right here on our beach.

Drop Out Do Nothing: This is the place to come to do nothing. Well you can kayak, walk on deserted beaches, collect shells, float in the sea or the salt-water pool, and if you are really energetic, drive to town for ice cream or dinner. You won’t want to go to sleep and miss one second of the city lights view, and the moonrise over the bay which can only be described as romantic. Enjoy your first cup of coffee wrapped in one of our soft, white robes. That is if you want to leave the silken 400-thread count sheets in your wicker sleigh bed. Your home away has a fully equipped kitchen, WI-FI, A/C ,and of course the view and use of the salt-water pool. If you want to tour our beautiful beaches and other towns you will need a car. We have a special rate with a rental car agency.

Beach Combing & Bird Watching: Want to beach comb? Do it right here. Or, if you want to drive to deserted beaches your hosts provide canvas and teak sand chairs and a miniature market umbrella, a cooler and directions to the best shelling around. Our neighborhood is surrounded by a federal biological preserve there is a research institute at the far end of the beach. Birders! There are 60 species of birds that nest here. Including a pair of great horned owls. Osprey wheel and soar and swoop near our pool. Wake to the sounds of birds stealing from each other, baby ospreys squeal and demand food. Hawks swoop, and even the lowly vulture visits here.

Be Free of Schedules: This little jewel of a guesthouse is not for the party hardy crowd. We cater to you: the thoughtful, busy person when you want to disconnect and lay down your load for a few days or a week. Or even take a vacation from your vacation. Our guests have come to heal, to start a new love relationship, to celebrate a marriage, or just to be free of schedules.
We can arrange for a massage therapist to come to you. La Paz is the center of eco-tourism. you can charter a boat that takes you to swim with sea lions, snorkel around a sea mount, anchors off of Isla Espiritu Santos and you kayak to shore. When you arrive, lunch is waiting.

She made all of the pillows in the HoneyMoon Hut. Ira is a retired college professor and is also the science editor at the federal biological research agency, CIBNOR at the end of our beach. He will be happy to give you a private tour of the facility including the Jacques Cousteau memorial. Susan and Ira can tell you where to watch whales up close without riding in a crowded van for two hours then getting a crowded boat, and it is FREE! You can have all the privacy you need, or all the interaction with your hosts as you want. You set the tone.

                          Why the Owner Chose La Paz:
                          We lived in El Comitan since 2000. We sold our first home here in 2005 and built our dream home on the beach. And every morning the sunrise reminds me of how lucky we are to live on the beach. At night as the moon rises over the lights of La Paz across the bay, we know we are in paradise.
