"I Don't Want to Go Home!" (Marina Costa Baja Resort)

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Jacques Cousteau describes the Sea of Cortez as "The Aquarium of the World" and that is exactly why it is now a protected body of water.

Now come with me. Close your eyes and let your imagination take you here (ok, don't really close your eyes until you finish reading my attempt to put the amazing beauty and fun of this place into words):

.......with excitement you hurry up the amber steps to enter the bold double wooden doors of your new "home away from home". Colors jump out at you, places on canvas entice you and comfort awaits you. Throw open the slider and feel the warm sea breeze flow across your skin. Ahhhh I'm here....

......."why I would love a drink while I soak up the golden sun." You slowly open your eyes to take in once again the breathtaking scene of this cool blue infinity pool seemingly blending into the aqua sparkle of the Sea....

......."Wahoo, someone help me reel this thing in!"....

.......I glance beneath me to see a shadow that looks like the vast wings of a magnificent bird, there twirling at it's edges is a dance of angel fish teasing and distracting a playful sea lion heading in my direction....

.......what a wonderful meal, something exotic, flavors that make my taste buds wonder what more there is to discover! The musicians are ready, the singer begins and the gentle warm night breeze whispers my name. Only steps away is my home away from home, to my pillow....

......."I Don't Want To Go Home!!!"

The Costa Baja Resort Marina Village Offers: Int'l Restaurants, Shops, Galleries, Yacht Charters, Fishing/Snorkeling/Scuba Diving Excursions, Rental Car Service and more. And what would you think about a short trip over to Mateos Lopez to not only see the California Grey Whales but actually have a chance to "pet" the whales. Yes, I said pet the whales like I did! Resident Services will be pleased to help you arrange all of this and more.

Or take the free shuttle to The Malecon, the beautiful seaside walkway along the tranquil waterfront of La Paz (only 5 minutes away.) Enjoy shopping, dining, strolling and watching a captivating sunset upon the Sea of Cortez. For an added treat, experience The Malecon on a Sunday night - Family Night - and mingle with the locals while the local vendors offer their goods and delicacies.

THEN THERE ARE THOSE DAYS WHERE ALL YOU WANT TO DO IS JUST RELAX. Grab your favorite book, perhaps a magazine to brouse through or that Ipod you remembered to drop in your carry-on and take them with you to the elegant, beautiful new MARINA BEACH CLUB. Enjoy splashing around in the infinity pool, lounging in the sun or shade, signaling for poolside libations (love that word)and chatting with good friends and family or consider making new ones. How much more can a relaxing vacation be all about!!

Let's put it this way... We haven't brought a person here yet that walked away saying "I want to go home now". What will you say? Come find out for yourself.

What makes this condo unique

The new Costa Baja Hotel and Spa has opened in November 2010 concurrently with the Gary Player Signature Golf Course which now brings us the additional amenities offered by the hotel. Some for free like the infinity pool with swim up bar, lap pool, and exercise room but now includes an exclusive and beautiful Spa to enjoy that extra little pampering one needs when away from home.

Beautiful resort

  • 4 of 5

The condo is located in a beautiful resort just North of town. The facilities at the resort are beautiful. The pool is amazing and there is a small beach as well. The resort has a number of restaurants on site (which we enjoyed). It was nice that you didn’t have to drive somewhere to eat. The marina has a number of vendors that you can choice from for water excursions. The highlight of our trip was the whale shark and seal lion swimming with Baja Adventures company.

Unfortunately the condo itself needs a little TLC. The patio furniture is literally falling apart with screws and nails laying on the patio. The unit was also missing the washer/dryer and dishwasher. Fortunately the owner arranged for us to have our laundry done by a service for a nominal fee. The beds leave a bit to be desired. There was also a bit of a hiccup in communicating with the owner. It would have been great to have written directions to the condo. Also suggestions on what to do in the area, where to eat, best way to get a taxi would have been great. Guest services at the condo were not much help. Despite these few things, we had an enjoyable time.

  • 5 of 5

Dorothy was a great host. The condo is in the best location in La Paz, with access to some of the greatest amenities you will find. The condo itself was very comfortable, and we felt at home. We would not hesitate in recommending this to all of our friends. Thank you very much!

Great place! Spacious and laid back

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The pictures don’t do the place justice. It was bigger then we expected and so cozy with a great Mexican feel. The area is so laid back and friendly. Lots of amenities and the beach club is beautiful. Food and drinks are very affordable and the free shuttles make it super easy to head into the Malecon anytime. Getting the keys was easy and Dorothy was great at answering any questions we had. Would stay here again and highly recommend it!

Condo was in a bad location

  • 2 of 5

The master bedroom window was near some storage or meter room. We would get waken up every morning by the workers making noise at 7am or the boat owners getting their boats ready. The condo also didn't have any cable. We expected more for the price we paid.

What a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We loved Marina Costa Baja, and our unit there. It was an upstairs condo, most of them appear to be, sitting atop one of the resort's shops. This made the whole resort feel more like a community as we could see the goings on in the restaurants and shops from our balcony. The condo had a gorgeous view of the marina, as well as the mountains and golf course. We enjoyed the sunset at the beach resort's restaurant/bar adjacent to the infinity pool, overlooking the bay. The condo was spacious with 2 bedrooms, each with their own bathroom with shower, the smaller had 2 queen size beds and the larger had a balcony with table and chairs, both overlooking the marina. The main living space was also large, kitchenette at one end and balcony viewing the marina at the other. In between, there was a dining area, and separate sitting area with TV, couch, and a couple overstuffed chairs. We found lots of activities in the area, and were always happy to come back to our "home base" where we could relax.
