Property description

Located just 2.5 miles north of Los Barriles, our casa and tropical gardens must be seen to be believed! Nearly 100 palm trees dot the landscape encircling the many gardens on the property. Sitting in the living room, you can see the beautiful Sea of Cortez and your very own beach. Of course, there’s always the large pool and Jacuzzi spa available if you choose to stay “at home.”

Feel free to meander through our property on the many different walkways. Beautiful granite boulders are strategically placed so you can just talk or look at the sea. The gardens are as varied as you can imagine. If you're fortunate to be here in the spring, you'll smell the fragrance of the many plumeria trees we have. We have a fire pit just inside the front wall--and it's used often. The bougainvillea labyrinth is beautiful and a most peaceful place to walk. Or, you can just sit under the small palapa near the master bedroom and look at the Sea of Cortez.

And there are toys—kayaks, standup paddleboards, snorkel gear and beach umbrellas should you decide to spend some time by the Sea. Additionally, we have a couple mountain bikes that are no strangers to the beautiful trails in the area.

So much of our Casa living revolves around the outside, we often forget to talk about the rest of the house. There are three bedrooms, each with its own shower and full vanity. Two of the rooms each have a king-size bed, the other has two queens. So sleeping 8 is pretty simple. Our Master Bedroom has satellite tv; the others are equipped with DVD players and flat screen tvs.

Also, in addition to satellite, Netflix and Blu-Ray, our Media Room has three full size twin-beds handling sleeping accommodations for another 3. By the way, this room gives a whole new meaning to the term 'TV Room.' The screen is a 10-foot gem with an HD-resolution projection of DISH satellite programming, Blu-Ray discs or movies via a Mac-Mini. Full description is provided for its operation. (We're senior citizens so the language is simple and the operation's a cinch!) This room has couches in addition to the twin beds, and a table that can be used to serve meals to all.

Then, there’s the Chapel for those who want to get away for a few minutes, to meditate or to have a massage. In fact, we have our own massage table so that Nancy (our local message therapist) can come out for relaxing massages. Our casa has been designed to satisfy the body and soothe the soul, so you don't have to do anything in the Chapel but sit. Many of our guests use the Chapel for meditation or for private Yoga practice.

The Mosaic Patio between the bedroom quarters and the kitchen/TV/living areas is pretty incredible! Covered with rustic Palo de Arco, this room has a beautiful brick fireplace that will allow you to entertain many of your friends and family with potlucks and BBQ’s. Our BBQ grill is on the pool deck by the large bougainvillea along with necessary charcoal and tools.

Across the Mosaic Patio is the Kitchen and next to it is the stairway to the roof. This will provide you with a complete panorama view of the mountains and Sea. You can begin the day with a view of the sunrise and end it with a sunset over the mountains.

The kitchen is well-appointed to serve snacks or gourmet meals. The juicer, food processor and blender are plugged in and ready to go. We have two refrigerators for you to store supplies for your crew.

The kitchen also has a 32' flat screen mounted on the wall, enabling it to be rotated or tilted so that all sitting in the living room, or the kitchen can see it. There's also an APPLE-TV in the kitchen as there is in the Master Bedroom.

The office is adjacent to the kitchen and houses modem, wifi extender and a variety of electronic gear. In addition, our printer-copier is located there and is for your use. Extra cartridges are on the supply shelf against the west wall. If you prefer, you can plug your computer into one of the Ethernet cables in every room. Additionally, we have a VONAGE telephone system allowing you to call anyplace in the US or Canada free of charge. Likewise, you can receive calls from anyone in the States or Canada.

The office also has a bathroom and shower that we often use as a changing room for the pool. There's a bodega behind the office with beach towels, wine, and food supplies. Feel free to use all the towels, drink the wine and eat any of the food you find there.

We've been in the area for over 20 years and can give you first-hand advice on where to get a boat for fishing, ATVs for exploring and even a chef who can provide you with a complete Mexican meal should you so desire. We've got favorite beaches, bike trails, taquerias, even fancier restaurants in the area. For snorkeling, all you need to do is open the front gate and walk to the water. We've got some of the best snorkeling in the Sea.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We're residents of Los Barriles AND South Pasadena, CA--dividing our time about 65-35 favoring Baja. We've been retired about 14 years and enjoy our time down here--especially when any of our kids and grandkids visit us.

Why the Owner Chose La Paz Municipality, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
We lived in Buena Vista for nearly 10 years when we decided that this is the area we'd like to retire to so we began looking for a home that had space and potential. This property 'fit the bill to a T.' A few years after buying, we put in the pool, then the walkways, gradually planted gardens and some grass...and the rest is history.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We loved this property because the house was built on the BACK of the lot and the yard had so much growing room. We've never been disappointed. To sit in the outdoor living area and look at the Sea of Cortez is something that we never tire of or take for granted.
