Property description

Casa Cardon (Home of the Cactus)
If you are looking for a chance to enjoy the La Paz area's non-stop sunshine and varied activities, our cozy, authentic Mexican home, Casa Cardon, is a perfect launching point to explore the La Paz area on your next vacation. Live like a local while exploring the many beautiful and secluded swimming beaches within 30-70 minutes, as well as all that non-touristy, authentic and safe La Paz itself has to offer, including kayaking, horseback riding, shopping, dining.
Casa Cardon is situated one house in from the Sea of Cortez in El Centenario which is under 20 minutes from La Paz. Fully furnished in authentic Mexican motif with comfy furniture; two full bedrooms sleep 4 comfortably. Daybed in the 2nd bedroom accommodates one. The property features high security walls/gate, interior parking.
An early morning walk on the beach is a great way to start your day before heading out to explore La Paz’s amenities. Afterward, relax by the dipping pool and enjoy the rest of the day in the privacy of the charming large patio area. On-site, reasonably priced massage/pedicure/manicure services can be arranged at your convenience. For meals, La Paz offers a wide array of dining options, and there are a few options in the immediate area. Take advantage of the full kitchen/BBQ; groceries can be pre-stocked* or our property manager would be happy to provide direction or assistance in purchasing all Mexican staples as well as some of your favorite familiar foods. As an enjoyable alternative, our Mexican cook will deliver a home-cooked meal including dessert for a very reasonable price.
Not sure what to do in the area? The rental manager can provide concierge service* (drop off/pickup) to many regional activities such as fishing, kayaking, golfing, beaches, eco trips, restaurants, etc. Or you may wish to rent a car from the rental manager for adventuring on your own. Picture this: the men head out for a day of fishing with a bilingual captain and the ladies head to La Paz for lunch and souvenir and clothing shopping including a leisurely lunch.
You can also do your resort wear shopping from the comforts of Casa Cardon in the on-site clothing boutique which features a wide variety of men and women's clothing. Bring your favorite designs and have them reproduced without taking apart the original piece of clothing. Go shopping or give ideas for patterns, colors, textures.
You can reach Casa Cardon by flying into the San Jose airport outside of Cabo San Lucas and taking the airport shuttle to La Paz bus terminal or you can fly into the La Paz International Airport. Once in La Paz, personal pickup can be pre-arranged instead of relying on taxi service.
So contact our friendly rental manager today to discuss how to make your vacation the perfect Mexican get-away!
This vacation spot will appeal to you if you are interested in having a wide variety of sports and water-related activities available, combined with a quiet get-away from the hustle bustle of your normally busy life. We are in a residential area so we very much appreciate clients who understand that the neighbors are enjoying the peaceful location as well.
early morning walks on the beach and watch the sunset after a busy day of sightseeing and activities or a quiet day relaxing by the pool. Beaches with swimming in the warm Sea of Cortez are only minutes away. Experience quiet, safe seaside living like the locals, while being close to La Paz which is the capital of the Baja and full of opportunities.

The property features high security walls/gate and the interior of the two buildings have recently been painted in rich warm Mexican colors. Casa Cardon is fully furnished, and includes fans and/or air conditioning in the bedrooms and kitchen/front room area. One building houses the full kitchen, dining and living room areas including a half bath. The other building includes two large bedrooms which each feature a king size bed and share a full bathroom with shower.

When you are not out exploring many activities in the La Paz area, you will want to spend your time at Casa Cardon outside enjoying the beautiful Mexican sunshine in cozy patio furniture next to the dipping pool. Read your favorite novel and sip a cool beverage after a day of touring about the area or just spend the day relaxing and forget about the hustle bustle at home.
Meals are always an important aspect of your vacation. Casa Cardon provides a number of options not normally available at other lodgings. Eating out in restaurants for every meal gets tiring and cooking every meal doesn’t give you that break you are looking for. Mix it up with any or all of the following: Choose from a limited dinner menu and have it prepared for you and served on the patio-- tamales, tacos, fresh fish globitas to name a few of the specialties. Take advantage of the full kitchen/BBQ--arrange to have the pre-stocked or the property manager would be happy to provide direction or assistance in purchasing all Mexican staples as well as some of your favorite familiar foods. There are few area restaurantst and roadside taco stands within walking distance as well as many choices in neighboring La Paz. Get recommendations on local favorites as well as popular tourist restaurants.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: Rod and Maureen are the owners, living in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, wishing we were in Mexico, particularly in the winter. We both like to golf, Rod loves the fishing in the Baja, and look forward to visiting Joni and Fabian who do a great job of managing our rental property. They live in the adjacent property, so are available to help make your vacation everything you hoped it could be.

Why El Centenario, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
Rod's sister Joni has lived in Los Cabos area for a long time and decided to move away from the more touristy areas to La Paz where it has all the tourist attractions but is less hectic even though it is a much larger city. We found Casa Cardon just outside La Paz in El Centario and decided it was perfect for us because the rental property is connected to Joni and Fabian's home which is ideal for proximity to the renters, but is totally private for both them and the renters.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Spending time in La Paz by the water seems like being in a much smaller town but has all the amenities of the large city that it is. The fishing is cheap in comparison to the Cabo area, and thanks to a local captain who speaks reasonable good English, Rod always has a great time and gets a full haul by early afternoon. Golf courses are popping up in the area, and the weather is amazing. We like to live like the locals but know that the tourist attractions are available any time we choose.
