About This Listing
Our wonderful home in La Paz is perfectly located near everything and in a great neighborhood. Being so close to the beach we enjoy cooling breezes off the Sea of Cortez and relaxing strolls down the Malecon waterfront promenade. Come experience it!
Casa de las Brisas is our townhouse located just a short block from the Malecon and beach in beautiful La Paz.
Our home has two ample bedrooms, a large bathroom, and a stocked kitchen and big living room. we are located on the first floor of a two story fourplex and get wonderful breezes through the home all year long. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, one of the best old neighborhoods in the city. Our home comes with cable TV and internet, as well as linens and kitchenware. There is a back patio which you can use for storing your toys or grilling up your catch of the day. you will have private parking right outside your door too.
when you stay here there are many places within walking distance, for example, the best grocery store is seven blocks down the street. a block further is a european style bakery with ecailrs and sour dough bread, and a great gourmet shop across the street. On tuesdays and Saturdays there is an organic farmer's market in front of the bakery, as well as a bunch of nice restaurants and coffee shops in the same area. Please note that our home is not a hotel, so if you run out of things you will need to replace them. There is no maid service unless you opt for it with our maid. Drinking water can be refilled down the street, amenities can be purchased at the store, etc...
On the Malecon, the city's beachfront boardwalk a block from the house, are dozens of restaurants and nightclubs, shopping, and ice cream shops. Many locals walk the Malecon both morning and evening, and strolling the Malecon is recommended to all my guests. There is an excersize area a couple of blocks up the Malecon where you can work out on the stationary bikes and other static equipment for the cross trainer in all of us.
Heading either way on the Malecon will lead you to a marina. Both have good restaurants and the Palmira has a pool which you can use with the purchase of food or drink. If you don't want to walk to downtown, or need to get to Wal Mart or the huge box stores, there is a bus that passes in front of the house every 20 minutes or so to take you there.
The best feature of Casa de las Brisas is that it is a great value, big and comfortable, and in the best location in town, period. Come stay here and enjoy Casa de las Brisas as your home base for exploring this beautiful area. We welcome your pet to our home, as long as it is house trained.
our casa is your casa, so use whatever you need and replace it if possible.

When you get to the home you will need to turn on the water, gas, and the power for the air conditioners. The water is in the driveway in front of our living room window, in the gravel near the neighbor's wall. The tank of gas is outside under the stairs to the second floor. You can reach in to the window opening on the outside of the stair case, through the bars, and turn the valve of the tank on, easy. The circuit breakers for the air conditioners are outside in the back of the house near the air conditioner unit. Turn both breakers on and use the remote controls to use the air conditioners. Please do not use the air conditioners to cool the whole house, as they will not be able to, and please only use them when you are in the rooms, making sure to turn them off when you leave. electricity is very expensive there.

My host has a lady to help get you settled, she cleaned the house prior to my arrival and i was given good directions. House is as described and very nice. I was there during a large hurricane and Scott had people there the very next morning cleaning up, very impressive, he even called me very early in the morning to see if we were alright. Neighborhood felt save, my wife and I would take walks to the malecon every night, no fear. Neighbors were also friendly and very helpful. Great place and great host, would definitely stay again and would recommend to everyone.
I've stayed in La Paz many times, but having a house like this one is a real treat compared to hotels. Fully equipped, well located, and comfortable. This time I was staying by myself -- next time I'm bringing my family. Scott was responsive and great to communicate with.
