Shenaqua met us at the door with welcoming treats and Kangan water, cold and room temperature. We had lovely air conditioning when needed and plenty of organic treats. Casa Zen is in a perfect location to experience La Paz and the Malecon. We would go back in a heartbeat. Thank you for your kindness and wonderful hospitality.
Shenaqua and Andrew were FANTASTIC hosts! I was in and out pretty frequently doing things but they definitely took the time to make me feel welcome. Their garden is peaceful, beautiful and lively. I got to try many of the fresh fruits they had brought home from their farm which were delectable! On the morning I left Shenaqua helped me with a taxi and foot injury debacle, making my commute home with a sprained ankle as painless as possible. I couldn't thank her healing powers enough! La Paz is a beautiful and lively area, stay with these lovely people when you visit! (2 blocks from the beach also a bonus!) you will not regret it. Thank you both so much for everything!
Shenaqua and Andrew are warm, loving people who immediately made me feel welcome and at home. I felt so well cared for during my stay at Casa Zen. The room was beautifully prepared and clean, with guide books for the area available, a bottle of filtered water and a sheet with all necessary house information on it. There is a beautiful vegetable garden out back to nibble out of and to relax in. The house is just a few blocks from the malecon and from downtown La Paz.
My favourite part of my trip to La Paz was my stay at Casa Zen. It felt like my home away from home and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a peaceful, loving space to stay in.
I am already looking forward to returning to Casa Zen again soon!
Very comfy and convenient place to stay and so close to the water. Lovely garden and Shenaqua is an amazing cook!
I had a lovely stay at Casa Zen! A wonderful, comfortable home in a great location. Shenaqua and AJ were very helpful as I was trying to plan the last days of my trip. I very much enjoyed speaking with them, as they took time out of their busy and interesting lives to offer travel suggestions. You will enjoy your stay at this lovely home!
Very welcoming, hospitable and helpful! Shenaqua and Andrew made my visit to baja a very comfortable and epic experience. Thanks Shenaqua and Andrew for your kindness and hospitality!
Had a lovely time relaxing at this zen house. We made tea and walked around the garden. Shenaqua has tons of magical fruits and the house smells like essential oil! Completely relaxing. Oh and when we arrived a hummingbird stopped by the front garden to say hello. :) thank you again for everything!!!
