Property description

You will love our spacious contemporary home with traditional Mexican architectural touches, open for monthly rentals in the up-and-coming El Centenario district. The location affords you the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing and serene environment while at the same time being only 15 minutes from downtown La Paz and in easy reach of some of the most stunning beaches in Baja. Situated on a gradual incline less than a mile from the Bay of La Paz, the single-story house provides expansive views of the bay and the city of La Paz on the opposite shore. The nearest sandy-white beaches with their turquoise waters are less than 20 minutes away by car.

The unique architectural design of the house blends organically with the desert environment due to its rustic building materials. The sliding doors of all the main rooms open to create an integrated indoor/outdoor living space. The house has been constructed with many natural materials and furnished with locally crafted furniture. Our intent was to create a true retreat from every-day busy living.

The main house contains a spacious great room opening up to an outdoor living space shaded by a traditional pergola made of palo de arco wood pieces and Mexican pine logs. The great room and patio provide panoramic views of the sea and the nighttime city lights of La Paz. There is a large guest bedroom with two beds and a bathroom on the north side of the house. The master bedroom and bathroom are housed in a separate structure connected by an outer corridor. Both bedrooms have sliding glass walls that open to separate patio decks overlooking the desert and the view of La Paz Bay. The rooms are all bathed in natural light as much as possible.

Beautifully landscaped with cactus and native plants from the local mountains you cannot help but feel close to the natural ecosystem as cardinals, Mexican Bluejays and a variety of hummingbirds color your mornings.

We offer a tranquil living space at a very affordable price because we encourage you to treat it like your own home – this is a sanctuary to get away from the day-to-day bustle. Contact us to explore this long-term rental opportunity and begin your retreat in the paradise that is Baja California Sur.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: This was my winter home, a lovely warm retreat where I hope to spend some of my retirement years. Now I'm serving in the Peace Corps, embracing the changes and challenges. I'm originally from New York but have made my permanent home in San Francisco, but I love both places. Having had the travel bug, I'm taking the opportunity to explore different places around the world but I do intend to return to beautiful La Paz.

Why El Centenario, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
I want to share my lovely home with others who would welcome a peaceful setting, attractive environs, and warm neighbors. Friends of mine purchased parcels of land here and I always wanted to have a get-away place in another country so I bought one too, and built this custom-designed house. We love it here!
