Welcome to my home in La Paz (the El Centenario area -- about 20 minutes southwest from downtown La Paz). This newly built Mexican Colonial-style home in a quiet cul-de-sac neighborhood features 2 bedrooms with Queen beds, each room with full ensuite baths (with large shower) and easy access through double sliding doors to a full back patio, the heated pool and the views. The ranch style floor plan is perfectly suited for privacy with a bedroom on each end of the house, separated by the laundry room, dining area, living room, and kitchen. The entrance features a flat sidewalk and circular driveway for ease of access and for loading / unloading.
The kitchen includes modern appliances and a large peninsula for food preparation and serving, a natural gathering place for socializing. All counter tops in the kitchen are granite and in the bathrooms are beautiful local marble. The kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses and utensils to meet almost any cooking and dining need.
The living area is cozy with comfortable furniture and beautiful views of the Bay of La Paz and the Sea of Cortez during the day, and the twinkling lights of La Paz at night.
Outdoors is the focus of living and visiting La Paz, with perfect weather and low humidity for the majority of the year. The outside area features a beautiful 6 ft. deep pool, a large covered patio with outdoor ceiling fan, and comfortable patio table and chairs. The upstairs roof patio is perfect for those early risers for sunrise over the Sea of Cortez with that first cup of coffee (or Bloody Mary), or gorgeous desert sunsets with a glass of wine or margaritas! The views are amazing with wide open spaces if you're looking for peace and quiet and a sky full of stars. With an arroyo on two sides of the property, the views are expansive with various cacti and other native plants. La Paz has several beaches you may want to explore -- Playa Balandra, Playa El Tecolote and Playa Tesoro are all within easy driving distance for a full day at the beach.
For those inside-the-house times, there is a large flatscreen Smart TV in the living area (with HDMI ports), full WiFi internet connection, and a nice collection of board games, train dominos and cards.
The laundry room has a full size washer and dryer for your use.
Since the location is in El Centenario outside of downtown La Paz, you will need a vehicle to get around. La Paz offers your choice of water activities -- from whale watching, whale shark snorkeling in the Bay (a favorite with these big impressive beauties -- the largest fish on earth), and scuba diving, to boat excursions to Isla Espíritu Santo. La Paz is known as a major deep sea fishing and game fishing location, and excursions are available from the surrounding marinas. While there is fantastic whale watching close to La Paz, you may also want do a day trip 3 hours northeast to the quaint town of beautiful Loreto to experience whale watching with a good chance of spotting massive blue whales -- the largest mammal on earth. For those land lovers, off-roading experiences are available from several local vendors for excursions into the desert.
Arrivals - Most people fly into Cabo San Lucas (SJD) International Airport and drive the 2.5 hours northeast to La Paz on great roads with scenic views of the Pacific along the way as you criss-cross the Baja. A brief half-way stop in Todos Santos for lunch at Hotel California and some shopping is a must!
La Paz is more than a resort city -- it's a fully functioning city (the capital of the State of Baja California Sur) with easy shopping for food at several stores including a Mega WalMart, Sam's Club, and Costco (in Cabo). There is a nice variety of restaurants with excellent offerings. Credit cards are accepted almost everywhere at major locations. While it's a working city, La Paz still has the feel of a quaint village with a beautiful downtown Malecón (boardwalk) for several miles along the Bay -- perfect for walking, running, bicycling or just relaxing with yet another delicious margarita!
Please note this is a non-smoking home, and while I love pets and enjoy children, this is a no-pets/no children under 15 rental.
There is a discount for monthly rentals (enter dates for 30 days or more for rate quote). Monthly rentals are for no more than 2 months consecutively.
Again, welcome to my home. The property manager lives in the area so any needs can be quickly addressed. I hope you enjoy your visit to La Paz.
