About the Property

Pool, Garden, 2 King Bedrooms w/ 2.5 Bathrooms, Big Kitchen, (Sleeps 4)

Central! No need for a car to see the town.
Located just 3 blocks from the waterfront Malecon, 2 blocks from the local supermarket, 3 blocks from the Saturday Organic Farmer`s Market, 3 blocks from the main Plaza with the church, and nearly all of the best restaurants in La Paz are within a few blocks radius.

Built by an architect for his young family, this recently finished home is very comfortable.

Two king bedrooms each with private baths (one has a jacuzzi tub), large combo kitchen living room opens onto a terrace garden and custom designed swimming pool. It is a small house with the feel of a spacious luxury mansion.

Red cedar cabinetry, closets, and doors throughout the house gives a real warm cozy feeling and every room was designed to have natural cross ventilation. The famous afternoon Corumuel (south breeze) of La Paz cools the house every evening. And sleeping with the windows open is welcome as every window in the house has screening to keep out the unwanted flying guests.

La Paz is a wonderful authentic Mexican town.
I hope you enjoy our house and La Paz as much as we have.

Year Purchased: 2011

About: My architect husband and I met as Dive Guides in La Paz in 2005. We married on the beach and lived here for many years. Wanting to start a family, we stepped off the dive boats and built this house for ourselves. Our baby girl was born here in La Paz early 2012 and we lived happily in our dream home. Now we are following another dream and are spending a few years in other parts of Mexico. I hope you enjoy our house as much as we have.

Why Esterito, La Paz, B.C.S., Mexico:
Location, Location, Location. We purchased this property because it is close to everything that makes La Paz great. From the house, we walk along the Malecon every night and go to get Ice Cream at our favorite local place. Being a small property has many advantages. It made us pay especial attention to the design of the rooms and the garden so they feel large and spacious.
