Stay at this beautifully renovated historical home right in the heart of this peaceful city, La Paz.
Only a 1 block walk from everything.
1 block to the fantastic ocean front boardwalk, the malecon
1 block in the other direction to the historic La Paz Cathedral.
1 block to the local supermarket, local organic farmers market, fresh tamales and handmade tortillas.
1 block to a group of fantastic restaurants.
This home is great for visitors without a car as you can walk to everything in the city with ease.
We have three bedrooms, two in the original home and 1 in the very tastefully built casita.
With a 3rd floor rooftop terrace and a 2nd floor rooftop sun deck this home has plenty of space to enjoy the great climate, the ocean views and to entertain!
On the cooler nights we have a great outdoor dining area within in the walled garden, sheltering you from any cooler breezes, or of course you can dine inside on our hand crafted dining table, made by a fantastic local craftsman.

We felt very welcome from Simon and his wife and were very thankful to stay in this home. The accommodations were absolutely perfect for our group of 5. We all had plenty of space, we enjoyed having a full kitchen to cook meals, and the house was clean and comfortable. Thank you so much for having us! We loved La Paz!
Beautiful house well furnished and clean, 2 minute walk to the water, loved it.
We were completely impressed with ourselves, having chosen so well from the Internet! The house was not only totally comfortable for us and our visiting friends, but its placement in town was perfect. People in the neighborhood were warm and welcoming, and we walked daily to markets, the Malecon, the marina, and other points of interest.
Simon was always responsive to our needs, questions, or concerns. He helped make our stay a success.
I stayed here with my family during the hottest and most humid months in Baja California Sur (July and August). It was our oases in La Paz. We could not have been happier. For me, this is one of those reviews I almost don't want to write because I know that the house will become so popular I won't be able to rent it next time. The location of this home is AMAZING. Within a block you have the following: the malecon, Les Bakery (the best bakery in Baja, try a torta for lunch and get the homemade frozen garbanzo vegetarian burgers for dinner at home), the organic farmers market on Tuesday and Saturday), Sitge, the bus station (in case you bus from the SJD airport), Buffalo BBQ. On the same street as the house is a great bagel shop, a wonderful juice place with attached artisan food and market (get the fresh eggs), a live music venue on Saturday's, and the only Mezcalaria (Les Miserable) I have ever seen (Mezcal is a wonderful Agave liquor if made or mixed right). I tried several of their mixed drinks and loved their version of a margarita. After you are done, ask them what they put on the rind of the glass...I won't ruin the surprise. The house itself has 3 separated bedrooms, a wonderful 3rd floor deck, and a shaded patio that we used constantly. We had numerous large dinners for friends and family and it was a wonderful space for that. Two things to keep in mind: no oven (there is a toaster oven) and the kitchen has no A/C (only a real issue during the hottest months of the year and we did just fine with it). Two of the bedrooms are on the street and their is noise (peaking on the weekends), but you absolutely cannot expect to stay in downtown La Paz and have it be quiet. That is like having Christmas with no Santa. It's not going to happen people. The noise makers worked great for us. I very, very highly recommend this place for family, groups of friends, couples, you name it. It was the best time I have ever had in Baja and I have been traveling here for over 15 years. La Paz is becoming such a wonderful little city.
An interesting house in a very central location. Very noisy during Carnival of course and a bit noisy after. There is a disco or night club very close that is open into the wee hours. Ear plugs helped. Perhaps the owners were anxious to rent the house but a little more time was necessary to finish the remodel and "get the bugs out". Hot water and showers were an issue but we understand a plumber was coming the day after we left so hopefully those issues will be resolved. Simon was most helpful and tried to resolve water issues while we (three of us) were there, going so far as to walk me through resetting circuit breakers over the phone.
The rooftop patio is great for sitting and enjoying the view and watching the sun go down.
Thank you for your review Kem. Our plumber/electrician upgraded the breaker so that the showers will all run at full temp without any problems, I am sorry I wasn't able to do this during your stay.
Carnival is certainly a lively time in La Paz and I hope it didn't disturb too much of your stay and we hope that you will come back and visit us again, maybe in a quieter week.
If you do I will happily provide you with a 15% discount on your stay.

My wife and I relocated to Mexico having lived in England together for a year after getting married. We have been here in La Paz living our dream for 4 years now and are starting our family here in this beautiful city.
La Paz isn't a normal city for its size, even with a large population of local residents, the city is very relaxed and laid back. Most families go to the beach or walk the Malecon in the evenings rather than sitting in front of the television. It is a very family friendly place, and no matter who you are or where you are from you will feel right at home here.
My wife grew up here in La Paz so it isn't so much new for her, but that is great as it means she knows everything and everyone in the city, meaning if you are looking to do more than sit by the pool she will be able to point you in the right direction and recommend you who to talk to to get the best seats and the best deals.
My wife and I run a rental manangement company, predominantly for non-resident owners, who share a similar mind set. We look after their properties and when they are not in town we take care of them and welcome other like minded visitors to stay in their homes.
Every home is different, but they all have one thing in common. This is that they are very well looked after and will make a great place to stay for your time here in La Paz.
