In one of the best and safest residential neighborhoods, the apt is close to the city center and main tourist attractions. Within a three block radius you will find some of the best restaurants, cafes and night spots, all for an incredibly low price!
The apartment on offer has one thousand square feet, two bedrooms that accommodate up to four persons, one bedroom with a double bed the other with two single beds, with one and a half bathrooms, dining and living room, kitchen and laundry room.
Clean sheets bedding and towels are provided. For every week that you stay an extra set of sheets and towels will be supplied. For every 14 day period that you stay you can have the apartment cleaned and bed(s) made if you wish.
Free wireless internet and cable TV for two television sets is provided. The apartment has two heaters; La Paz can get chilly in winter, especially at night, even in summer when it rains a lot.
The apartment has a water heater. That means that you'll get hot water 24 hours a day when you use the sink in the bathroom and of course in the shower. It also means you'll get good water pressure in the shower as opposed to showers that don't have water heaters.
Starter supplies of hand soap and toilet paper are supplied as well as shampoo.
The apartment has a washing machine and facilities for laundry to hang out to dry, as well as an iron and ironing board. There is also a professional laundry service about a block away which charges about two dollars to wash a kilogram of regular clothing. Suits and jackets cost three to three and a half dollars to dry clean.
The land line phone can be used for unlimited local calls to other land lines only.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all the standard appliances. Also provided are kitchen and dining implements such as cooking utensils, pots, pans, china, glasses, silverware and the like.
A starter kitchen package is provided with sugar, salt, coffee, tea, coca tea (good for altitude sickness), sponge, dish soap, detergent, rubber gloves and trash bags.
Thanks to the suggestions of our wonderful guests we have improved the accommodations with things like a new mattress for the double bed, a better shower head so that you will have even more water pressure, and a new tap for the kitchen sink; there is always room for improvement! Also, a brand new water heater has been installed so that you will get even better water pressure when you take a shower!
The apartment is on a 17th floor which gives it a spectacular view. Also, you need not walk up steep streets (La Paz makes San Francisco look as flat as your dining room table) and be left out of breath to get to it because the streets immediately around the apartment building are relatively flat.

Interaction with guests
So that I can be at the apartment to give you the keys when you get there I need you to do two things: one, please let me know time of arrival to La Paz; and two, please call me when you arrive at the airport or reach the city. That way I can wait for you when you arrive no matter the time of day or night.
You can reach me by phone at any time of day or night. I’ll be happy to assist and help accommodate any needs/requests as well as point you in the right direction for tourism, shopping and entertainment. I am available to guests for any questions or doubts that may arise.
Other things to note
I offer two apartments in the same building so that large parties (up to eleven persons) can stay close together if both apartments are reserved at the same time. One apartment is referred to as BIG APT. WITH BEST LOCATION, which is the site you are looking at right now, and the second is referred to as Beautiful, Big, Sunny, Unbeatable Location and Views.
Dear guest, it takes me 20 to 30 minutes to get to the apartment so please let me know the following so that I can wait for you at the apartment once you arrive in La Paz:
1. What time you will arrive in La Paz
2. What mode of transportation you are taking to get to La Paz: airplane, bus, other
3. If you arrive at the airport, if you are going to take the shuttle (see shuttle information in section "Getting around" below) or a taxi

6. Once you get to the building please ring doorbell for my apartment: 17C. If I´m delayed please ring again in 5 and 10 minutes.

You're welcome to drop off your luggage if arriving early or store your luggage if you're leaving late for a fee as I have to travel back and forth from my place to the apartment. Please just ask!
Please keep noise to a minimum, especially before 7AM and after 8PM, your neighbors will greatly appreciate it!
The apartment door can only be closed from the outside, so you need to remember that every time you leave you have to lock the door behind you. I also need to see you just before you leave because you have to give me back the keys for the same reason.
Please do not open or close the curtains with your hands, please use the strings, thanks.
Other than that, just what could be reasonably expected in terms of keeping the place clean, maintaining appliances in working order and in general leaving the place in the same condition in which you found it.

When I was at George Washington University in Washington D.C. a couple of years ago I stumbled upon Airbnb. It seemed like a great idea so I decided to give it a try. I wanted to visit some friends up in New York and take in the U.S. Open as well so I booked a stay in a place in Queens (where I used to live when I was in grade school) and it worked out fine.
When I returned home I decided to try the opposite side of the coin and be a host, I must admit, not without a little bit of trepidation. I mean, I had roommates in college with whom I even shared the same room, but that was a long time ago. So, since I had a spare bedroom in the place where I was living I went ahead and rented it out through Airbnb.
Anyway, I’m happy to say that I’ve enjoyed hosting interesting and fine guests and I’m glad that I decided to become a host. Now that I have the chance to be a host for an entire apartment I’m looking forward to meeting other interesting and fine people. My hope is that I might make a difference in their, actually your, enjoyment and appreciation of La Paz if you come here, helping you to have the best experience possible. See you soon!
