Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Custom furnished in colorful Mexican fashion, our 3,000 SF penthouse condo has 3 BRs (2 with king size beds and 1 with 2 full size beds) and 3.5 baths. The floors throughout are travertine and all counters are granite. We upgraded doors, counters, and closet storage features in all rooms.
The spacious living room with a vaulted 18' ceiling has a spectacular view of the coastline by day and the lights of La Paz at night. The 900 SF terrace faces the east so you can spend the warmest part of the day pretty much in the shade. There is also a gas barbecue on the terrace, and a terrace with wet bar off the master bedroom.
Flat screen TVs and iPod dock/charges in the living room and all bedrooms. Free use of Magic Jack telephone, cable TV, WiFi, books, DVDs and games are available for your use.

About Melinda Manchester
We live in Southern California and are fortunate to enjoy almost perfect weather year-round. We first came to La Paz years ago and fell in love with this tranquil jewel. We chose Paraiso del Mar because of its location and the developers’ vision – not only in terms of the architectural plans, but also because of their impressive commitment to environmental and ecological sustainability. All potable water is provided by onsite desalinization -- and this is critical in this arid climate. .
Melinda Manchester purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Melinda Manchester chose La Paz
“La Paz” in Spanish means “peace.” How appropriate for this beautiful, peaceful city. It’s the capital of Baja California Sur, and its large local population enjoys one of the highest standards of living and quality of life in Mexico. These warm and friendly people in turn account for the numerous resources available to a visitor – great restaurants, shopping and activities. From the Malecon, the wide boardwalk along the beachfront, you can enjoy an unobstructed view of the Bay of the Sea of Cortez. La Paz is protected from seasonal storms by the Sea of Cortez. As one of the most biodiverse bodies of water in the world, La Paz is home to the 3 leading marine biology institutes in Latin America. For us, it provides world class scuba diving, sportsfishing, whale-watching, snorkeling with sea lions, kayaking, day cruises and ecotours. You can even swim with whale sharks and sea lions! The La Paz airport is 10 minutes to the water taxi which takes you from the Malecon to Paraiso del Mar, a private 1700-acre development on the Mogote peninsula. On the property is the 18-hole Arthur Hill designed golf course, named one of the 5 best new international golf courses by Golf Magazine (Jan 2010). On-property transportation is complimentary, as is the water taxi to and from the PDM dock and the Malecon (boardwalk along beach) in the center of town.
What makes this Condo unique
Because our condo is on the ocean-side of the building closest to the water, it's quieter and has an unobstructed view of the water during the day and the lights of La Paz across the bay at night. We like to play golf, go fishing, relax, read, and go out to try new restaurants. We will keep an updated resource list of our favorite restaurants, shops, how to charter a fishing boat, make a tee time, call for on-property transportation. We want our guests to feel pampered, relaxed and so happy to be staying in our penthouse condo.

We stayed a week and absolutely loved the trip. This condo has fantastic views out of all of the rooms, and it had everything that we needed during our stay. The kitchen is well-appointed if you prefer to cook in and the living space is beautiful and comfortable. Access to La Paz is easy, and there are free bicycles to use while on the property, great for getting to the water taxi, the golf course or tennis / pickle ball courts.
The condo is magnificently appointed. It is well furnished; we never were without something we needed. The grounds around the finished buildings are well manicured. There is a great sized swimming pool with an adjacent hot tub. It is easy to get to the beach where the water is very shallow and safe for kids. Kayaks, stand up paddle boards, and bicycles are free to use. The shuttle to La Paz is most convenient.
Very well decorated condo; very comfortable; everything in good working order.
This was the nicest vacation rental I have ever stayed in. Extremely spacious, with excellent views . Once you get the hang of the water taxi, easy access to town, but allows for quiet time back "home ". Super nice people. Would definitely return.
Beautiful location and luxury accommodations!!
We stayed for 9 days over Thanksgiving, and we would highly recommend Paraiso Del Mar and this particular condo for anyone looking for a great Baja vacation. Paraiso Del Mar is very private and beautifully maintained - it has the feel of a luxury resort without the crowds. The food at the restaurant is excellent, and the cooks and servers are all very friendly and willing to accommodate any special requests. Our only complaint is that shopping for groceries took some planning & effort, but otherwise we loved Paraiso Del Mar and plan to return!
This particular condo is a penthouse unit and is HUGE! The rooms are all over-sized, each bedroom has its own large bathroom with walk-in shower, the patio runs the full length of the condo with 2 large areas for sitting and hanging out... the place is big and luxurious!! The owners were also very friendly and helpful! Everything was as described and shown in the pictures.
For those looking for a quiet and private get-away with the feel of a resort, Paraiso Del Mar is the place!!
What a vaca!
A wonderful 5 star condo - be best of all of them in this resort.
You can swim with the whale sharks and sea lions in warm, clear water.
