Why Bev Durvin chose El Centenario
After touring many cities in Mexico, we decided that La Paz was the perfect place to build our future retirement. Ensconced along the largest bay on Baja’s Sea of Cortez coast, La Paz is noted for a beautiful malecon (waterfront walkway) backed by palm trees, pastel-colored buildings, spectacular sea-side sunsets, easy-going pace and it’s proximity to uncrowded beaches and pristine islands. La Paz has the perfect blend of a beautiful historic city set against a tranquil desert and a pristine, turquoise ocean abundant with marine life. We think La Paz offers a great blend of an old world city with friendly people yet also provides all the amenities of a large city without the big city feel. Beware! Legend has it that once a traveller visits La Paz, he leaves a piece of his heart there, and is always drawn feeling complete again when returning to this wonderful place.
What makes this House unique
People who have stayed at our property consistently tell us that once they arrive they are content to just relax in our inviting great room, cook up a sumptious meal in our fully-equipped kitchen, and enjoy their family and friends in a luxurious getaway from it all. You can pamper yourself in the large, private infinity pool overlooking the ocean; enjoy a margarita as you recline on the sunken bar stools. Both the pool and the 8-person hot tub provide the perfect backdrop to view the stunning sunsets and watch as the La Paz cities lights blink on. La Paz is only 15 minutes away and offers a wide range of restaurants from Italian, to high-end Mexican fusion, to delicious tacos and sumptious seafood cocktails. Previous guests have let us know that fishing in the Sea of Cortez, whale watching, kayaking, wind-surfing, snorkeling and wandering along pristine beaches are some of the favored activities.

I can't say enough good things about the property, Bev and her staff, and Mexico! My four sons and their families and I enjoyed a wonderful week. Bev was always available to answer any questions and provide suggestions for Sightseeing, restaurants, and make transfer arrangements from the airport. I highly recommend that you hire Miriam to cook for you! She cooked every breakfast for us, and several dinners; everyone agreed it made our trip! Delicious meals, no shopping to do, no dishes to clean up!
The pool and hot tub were in constant use but the highlight was the fire pit on the patio; the adults spent hours every evening enjoying the view, the warmth, and the comraderie.
The house is about a 20 minute ride to downtown La Paz in a quiet rural area. The city is clean, the Malecon beautiful, and the people invariably friendly and helpful. We loved the beach at Balandra, and Bev gave us directions to a remote beach where there was great snorkeling and we were the only ones there! Spanish is helpful, but it was not hard to find English speakers.
We loved our visit and recommend it without reservations.
It has been a pleasure to have your full family come & play in the Baja... this home sings beautifully with a family making use of all it has to offer. Come back & play with us again!
Great getaway in La Paz
My family of 10 stayed the week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. There are 3 separate houses right next to each other that give added privacy as well as the main house with two rooms and couches that make into beds where everyone tended to hang out and enjoy the open room, jacuzzi, and pool. Bev and Rick were friendly, helpful and available for any needs that would arise.
The house is about 20 min. from the airport and about the same from the town. We all had a great time and would love to return.
We enjoyed our amazing Baja Oasis just outside La Paz. We had an amazing time enjoying the pool, hot tub. And grilling. The property is lovely with many amenities. It was very homey and tranquil. Beautiful birds to watch daily by the pool. Thanks for an AMAZING stay. We will be back!!
Beautiful home just outside La Paz
The home itself was beautiful, the Pool and hot tub were very well maintained and lovely. We had 5 adults and 2 small children and we were very comfortable! Bev was extremely helpful and attentive. She arranged cooks for us which was so nice! She also arranged a day on a boat - to Espiritu - what a great day! Snorkeling with sea lions, ceviche and cerveza on a white sand beach. Very nice wet suits, snorkel gear etc was included. Helpful to know that the home is located 'off the beaten path'.. so activity outside of the home requires a drive... of 20-60min... but as long as you recognize that- we highly recommend this home! Plan to exchange money before you arrive or use an ATM - don't exchange at the airport.. rate is horrible
An Oasis in La Paz
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the property! The property offers beautiful views, privacy and quiet surroundings. The home was spacious and clean. The property manager Bev is very friendly and easy to work with. We hope to be able to return again in the near future!
We had a group of 7, 4 adults and 3 teenagers, we gave the kids the main house and the adults had the other buildings. It is a very quiet place the house was bigger then expected and the views are amazing. Bev ' S recommendations on restaurants was great, all good food and service. And we really enjoyed the whale shark tour they were amazing To see and our guide was awesome.
