Property description

Casa Abuelita lies in the heart of old La Paz, one block from both the Malecón (the boardwalk that lines the bay) and the cathedral and the central plaza. La Paz’s finest restaurants are within a block or two of the house. Within a short walk there are two traditional mercados (markets) where you can buy fresh fish, meats and produce.

A traditional La Paz home over a hundred years old, Casa Abuelita has recently been given an exquisite renovation that keeps the craftsmanship of an old home while bringing you 21st century amenities and comforts.

The original doors still stand under the wooden beams and corrugated roof (fitted with modern thermal insulation). The street side rooms that once served as space for typing classes given by Señora Julieta have been remodeled and are now finely designed bathrooms that buffer the street noise. In the central courtyard (with lounge & pool) you will find an unexpected serenity, especially in the garden where an old well still reaches down into the La Paz aquifer.

Casa Abuelita is equipped with WiFi, the kitchen is fully stocked with wares, and you'll find fresh towels & n the bathrooms.

(Property managed by Inmobiliaria El Cirio.)

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: My name is Monica. I grew up in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, and have lived La Paz for the last six years. During that time, I've grown roots into the community through educational programs and efforts to advance environmental conscience in the form of organic gardens, recycling, and sustainable water-management practices.

Why La Paz, B.C.S., Mexico:
Location! Casa Abuelita is in the absolute center of downtown, and only a short walk from the beach. Walk around the corner and you'll find a local café; choose another direction and you'll find three restaurants; the central plaza (one block away) is surrounded by small bars & shops. El Cirio offers great service with many amenities. The owner lives nearby and can attend to any issues personally or through trusted staff members.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
El Cirio is committed to sustainability, social responsibility, and offers several unique services. Our sustainability efforts include a community-based recycling program and the women-led business that makes and sells the natural cleaning products we use in our housekeeping service. We also provide childcare and traditional cooking upon request.
