Description of the La Paz vacation home rental
Welcome to our La Paz home! We love it here and we hope that you will love it too! The feel of our home is one of warmth and comfort. This is our retirement home, and we hope to have it reflect the great experiences we have had in our lives and particularly our love of Mexico.

The house is located in the hilltop area of El Centenario known as Lomas del Centenario, about 20-25 minutes from downtown La Paz. (It is best to rent a car, though, as taxis and buses are not readily available in the area.) It is a tranquil, peaceful get-away, yet close and convenient to outdoor and ocean activities and the city life centered around La Paz.

The house has one large bedroom, a stone and tile bathroom, a generous great room and dining area, and a well-appointed kitchen. The house is air conditioned throughout. Both the bathroom and the kitchen feature Cantera Stone with Mexican tile accents. The ceilings are all 12-14 feet high, with beautiful crown mouldings throughout. A particularly beautiful feature of the house is the 20-foot high dome found in the great room. This is not only very beautiful architecturally, but has beautiful ambient lighting and enables hot air in the house to be drawn up into the dome, keeping the temperature in the house comfortable even on the hottest of days.

There are French doors in the great room and sliding glass doors in the bedroom all opening out to a large tile patio area. This is a great place to start your day with your favorite coffee or tea, or end the day with a relaxing glass of wine. The night skies are also beautiful and clear and allow for lots of star gazing. Also, off the bedroom, is a wonderful "quenching" pool - - a great way to cool off in the hot La Paz days. And, the pool is inside, behind walls which protect your privacy. You can see all of these areas of the house in the pictures posted below.

The kitchen contains all of the items you would need to prepare and enjoy meals in the house. The towels and bed linens are soft and luxurious. There is high-speed internet available for your use along with a large flat screen TV with U.S. channels as well as HBO and Cinemax. There is also a laundry room with washer and dryer available for your use.

And, finally, please help us to keep our house pleasing to all by not smoking in the house. Also, no pets please and no children under 10.

Our property manager lives close by and can answer any questions you have about the house while you are here.

We hope that you will love your stay in our home!

Bruce and Andrea Maynes

Area Information
One of the things that we particularly love about La Paz is that it is not solely a tourist destination, but, instead, a real Mexican city. La Paz is the capital of Baja California Sur and therefore is home to government business as well as typical business of a city. There are also many cultural activities, wonderful restaurants, and good shopping in La Paz and also about an hour away in Todos Santos.

It is also just a few minutes from some secluded beaches and is surrounded by beautiful desert areas. It is perfect for those who love the warmth and feel of the desert, but also perfect for those who love to hike and explore, by foot or ATV. Water sports and activities are also wonderful in La Paz; kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, and scuba diving adventures are some of the best to be found.

Guests to our home have said that they can immediately experience a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere - - we hope that you will enjoy that experience as well.
