Our spacious two bedroom home is located on a hilltop in El Centenario, a suburb 10 miles west of La Paz. The home is air conditioned thru-out and features an open floor plan. An artist designed iron and glass front door opens to an entry foyer, then to a large Great room with French doors opening to an expansive and private pool terrace. A fully equipped kitchen and laundry room complete with a washer and dryer are available for your use. Both bedrooms include their own bathroom and have sliding glass doors leading to the pool terrace. You will enjoy over 1,500 sq ft of indoor space plus another 1,500 sq ft of terraces, including four ramadas and your own private swimming pool complete with a cascading fountain.
In addition to a sun terrace there are numerous shady nooks with comfortable outdoor seating areas and a large built in barbeque. A circular iron staircase leads to a roof top terrace providing an amazing 360 degree panoramic view of the Sea of Cortez, the mountains, the city lights of La Paz and the beautiful sunsets.
The house features granite counter tops, marble tile bathrooms, expansive windows, high ceilings and crown moldings throughout, and is combined with beautiful furnishings and art work creating a luxurious atmosphere for a great relaxing vacation.
We are about 15-20 minutes from the center of La Paz, so if you prefer to be in the center of the action our house is not the one you want. Our location is in a very nice quiet residential hillside neighborhood with great views of the city and the ocean and lots of privacy.
No pets, no smoking, and no children under 10. This is not a party house and we ask, in respect to our neighbors, that moderate noise levels be maintained at all times and that quiet hours are observed from 11 pm to 7 am. Beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach mats, beach towels, and ice chest are provided for your use. Our property manager lives in the neighborhood and can assist with any questions you may have. Additional photos available on request.
TRAVEL TIP.... While La Paz is an international airport with flights from the U.S. we find that flight schedules and airfares are usually better flying into Cabo, just 90 miles to the South. Rental cars are usually less expensive as well and it is a very nice drive on a four lane highway.
Note: The automatic pricing option does not include a charge of $7 per day utilities charge which includes, water, electric, gas, trash, and internet.

Year Purchased: 2008
Why the Owner Chose La Paz: Like so many retirees, we began looking for a warm weather destination where we could build a vacation home to spend the winter months, and eventually our search took us to La Paz as we were looking for a destination less touristy than the better known resort towns. The old world charm of La Paz is still evident in the beautiful colonial architecture, and it is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities on the Baja. If you haven't discovered La Paz yet, it is about 90 miles north of Cabo, a city of 200,000, and the capital of the southern Baja with nonstop flights to the U.S. While La Paz has tourism, it is not a major part of the economy so far, however that is beginning to change. There are some good sized tourist developments now underway, and the city's first two golf courses opened this past year. It is a top destination for travelers looking for great weather, beaches, fishing, diving, snorkeling, boating, windsurfing, hiking, eco-tourism, and more.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We thoroughly enjoy poking around In La Paz, with its restaurants, shopping, activities, and its wonderful waterfront walkway, the Malecon. But when it came to select a home, we wanted more space and something a bit quieter and more private than we could find in town. A view of the Bay, a large terrace, private pool, and a beautiful garden were also high on our list. The house is built in traditional colonial style complete with a domed cupola in the great room. The property provides plenty of privacy with a 10,000 sq ft lot screened by walls and flowering hedges. The two bedrooms are on opposite ends of the house, both with ensuite baths, provding the maximum privacy. A rooftop terrace provides a 360 degree panoramic view of the Sea of Cortez, the city of La Paz, the mountains, and the amazing sunsets.
