About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Welcome to La Paz and my home at Villas La Posada. Below is information to help you get to know La Paz and the accomodations at this beautiful complex. My Villa is Number 006. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions! You can pay by personal check, Pay Pal or credit card.

Villas La Posada is a new complex located in La Paz, Mexico - the capital of California Baja Sur on the Sea of Cortez. This complex can best be described as a boutique villa/ condominium residence. The Bay of La Paz, which is a wonderful place to walk and search for sea shells, is only

a half block from the Villas La Posada complex. This unit is located on the ground floor of the complex providing direct access to the pool and Jacuzzi area. This Villa has two large bedrooms, each with a queen size bed and two full bathrooms each with a large walk-in shower. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern amenities to make you feel as though you are in your own kitchen. For those of you who like to cook, you will also have a 15 bottle spice rack to use!

In addition to this beautifully decorated Villa, you will have access to other outdoor amenities to include an outdoor cooking and eating area next to the pool. “The Palapa” offers a large gas grill, full size refrigerator, sink, bathroom, tables and chairs for dining and/or cocktails. All guests also have access to the rooftop terrace and hot-tub of the “Tower” – which offers beautiful views of the Bay, the city of La Paz and spectacular sunsets.

There is a large grocery store within walking distance from the complex. Access to the Malecon and La Paz’s downtown area is extremely easy and just a short drive away. The Malecon offers a beautiful waterfront walkway, where people jog in the morning and stroll in the evening, and seaside restaurants and shops.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our first time in Baja California Sur, and La Paz in particular, and what an experience. First off, the house is in fact finer than described, and quite a pleasure to spend time in, especially when it's hot in the afternoon. The AC works perfectly. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped, and for an amateur cook like myself, makes cooking out of La Paz's terrific markets a breeze. The host provides a wide range of information on La Paz's charms and interests, which were highly useful to us first timers. The pool was an unexpected pleasure in the hot afternoons, and the view of the Bay and the sunsets from the roof terrace on the adjacent tower were splendid. It should be noted that the condo is not on the Malecón, but is located almost on the Bay, about a mile or so further north. The area is pleasant and safe. In fact, we didn't find any part of La Paz to be unsafe. There are large US style big box stores very close, within a mile. That said, it is very easy and fast to drive to the Malecón, which we usually did several times each day. The host was fantastic during our stay, and that included Hurricane Odile! So I can certify that the condo is hurricane ready. With her help, we were able to weather the attendant difficulties with minimal discomfort. A truly outstanding host.

Lea's villa is artfully and beautifully furnished. We slept, cooked and vacationed well!

  • 5 of 5

The Villas La Posada property is beautifully maintained. We enjoyed the flowers, pool and palapa areas. The peaceful city of La Paz, the warmth of the people and the beaches just out of town will lure us back again. Lea's thoughtful notes and easy communication were well appreciated. Highly recommend!

Our stay at Lea's Beautiful Villa was excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is everything that Lea said it would be and more. It was very clean and well kept and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was well stocked with everything you need in the kitchen even including some condiments that were left by other visitors which always helps. We would certainly go back again and hope to in the near future. We needed a bit of help the first night as we locked ourselves out but Max came to our rescue and let us in.

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an authentic Mexican vacation. The restaurants in the area was fantastic and the people were very friendly. Everything is very inexpensive and of excellent quality.

We enjoyed several of the beautiful beaches in the area with the pristine white sand and the crystal clear water. We went to see the Sea lion colony and watch the baby sea lions that acted much like puppies that were so curious in the water when you were snorkeling as well as an opportunity to swim with the whale sharks which was fantastic.

Thank you Lea, will look forward to our next visit.

Very clean villa and poolside area

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, all amenities that we needed were available for us. The property has been well maintained both inside and the grounds itself. We were impressed with the imaculate care of the pool area. Love that there were two bathrooms for our use! The roof of the tower was amazing to see the sunsets and to look around the beach, ocean and down onto the villa pool area. Easy access to grocery stores. A nice home away from home!

All the Comforts of Home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Lea for providing such a lovely Villa. It is decorated so lovely and has everything we needed fir our three week vacation. Having coolers and beach chairs was so nice for our beach days! This was our first time in La Paz and the location of the Villa is great! So close to grocery stores, restaurants and the Malacoln. The grounds off the patio are very pretty and well kept. We felt very safe here and slept with our window wide open each night.

We highly recommend this villa, Lea and Maximo are very accommodating and very easy to communicate with. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to be back soon!

The Perfect Home Away

  • 5 of 5

From start to end, our experience with Lea, Maximino, and the Villa was perfect. The location was close enough to all the needs (Chedraui had most everything), and far enough from downtown to avoid all the traffic and noise. The playa 1 block away was unique for the sunset and bird viewing. The rooftop hot tub was spectacular at sunset!

The Villa itself came with everything. Very comfortable for 4.

The pool outside the door was nice for swimming laps or just lounging.

We met some other very nice guests while staying too.

This property will be 'our home to return to' now.

Thank you, Lea.

We just returned from an incredible two weeks stay in this condo. It was everything that was advertised! Ideal for two couples, with the two bathrooms. Knowing we had a washer and dryer we packed only what we could get into our carry on. We did rent a car and even with that added cost the daily price was less than a hotel room, and we had a very comfortable "home" for two weeks. We cooked a few meals and ate a few meals out. If you rent this condo be sure to use the common area on top of the tower. Great place to cook out or just to watch the sun set and see the city at night, and occasionally see the sun rise. Lea gave us great information on the area so we had some idea of things to see and places to go. We took the Ecobajatours bus (a 7 passenger van) to get from the airport to La Paz and met people who were frequent La Paz visitors who also gave us helpful information about the area. Lea has a friend that checked on us several times to answer questions and that was helpful knowing we had a "local" available to answer questions. If we have the occasion to return to La Paz we will not hesitate to rent this condo again. LOVED IT!!!!!

Thank you, Lea, for allowing us to rent your home.
