Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms (+convertible bed), 3.5 baths, courtyard pool & lounge, walkscore 95

Casa Abuelita lies in the heart of old La Paz, one block from both the Malecón (the boardwalk that lines the bay) and the cathedral and the central plaza. La Paz’s finest restaurants are within a block or two of the house. Within a short walk there are two traditional mercados (markets) where you can buy fresh fish, meats and produce.

A traditional La Paz home over a hundred years old, Casa Abuelita has recently been given an exquisite renovation that keeps the craftsmanship of an old home while bringing you 21st century amenities and comforts.

The original doors still stand under the wooden beams and corrugated roof (fitted with modern thermal insulation). The street side rooms that once served as space for typing classes given by Señora Julieta have been remodeled and are now finely designed bathrooms that buffer the street noise. In the central courtyard (with lounge & pool) you will find an unexpected serenity, especially in the garden where an old well still reaches down into the La Paz aquifer.

Casa Abuelita is equipped with WiFi, the kitchen is fully stocked with wares, and you'll find fresh towels & n the bathrooms.

About Yolanda Espinoza

My name is Monica. I grew up in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, and have lived La Paz for the last six years. During that time, I've grown roots into the community through educational programs and efforts to advance environmental conscience in the form of organic gardens, recycling, and sustainable water-management practices.

Yolanda Espinoza purchased this house in 2006

Why Yolanda Espinoza chose La Paz

Location! Casa Abuelita is in the absolute center of downtown, and only a short walk from the beach. Walk around the corner and you'll find a local café; choose another direction and you'll find three restaurants; the central plaza (one block away) is surrounded by small bars & shops.

El Cirio offers great service with many amenities. The owner lives nearby and can attend to any issues personally or through trusted staff members.

We have GREAT NEWS! Because we care about our Customers, also offer upon your arrival a welcome basket, ideal option for an exhausted traveler to enjoy from the comfort of Casa Abuelita for 80 USD.

Our basket provides all the essentials for a delicious meal and snack after a relaxing day at the beach: sip our freshly-squeezed lemonade and prepare a tasty sandwich with salad and guacamole from seasonal fruits and vegetables, top-quality goat cheese, smoked salami, artisanal bread, olives, dried fruits, and other treats.

In the mornings, you can look forward to having a nutritious breakfast of savory homemade empanadas and fresh eggs, along with regional sweets, pastries, milk and granola to accompany your morning cup of coffee or tea.

Please check the pictures in our gallery.

What makes this house unique

El Cirio is committed to sustainability, social responsibility, and offers several unique services.

Our sustainability efforts include a community-based recycling program and the women-led business that makes and sells the natural cleaning products we use in our housekeeping service. We also provide childcare and traditional cooking upon request.

A great historical home in the heart of La Paz

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic home designed for family fun! Our family enjoyed every bit this home has to offer. The central location to all the action on the waterfront and the proximity to many of the finest restaurants in La Paz, makes this home priceless for a worry free family getaway. Coffee/Bagel shop a few steps away, grocery store 1 block away, and the Farmers Market on Saturday mornings 1 block away were all very convenient as well. We'll be back again soon!!!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This home was beyond perfection. Beautifully designed, incredibly inviting and by far the best home I have ever rented on either VRBO or Airbnb. The pool was lovely, the bedrooms were cosy yet big, the showers were stunning and the air conditioning worked like a charm. Our hosts provided us with everything we needed and were never more than a phone call away.

The location was perfect a mere two blocks from the ocean, with restaurants and an amazing coffee shop around the corner, we had everything we needed within walking distance. We even had our own enormous parking spot which was a relief because we were given a huge vehicle at our car rental place. There is no question that if we ever go back to La Paz, this is where we will stay. Just amazing!

Better than a hotel or modern condo!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely but somewhat rustic spot. Felt private,safe and authentic. Great location, delightful garden and pool. Comfy beds, clean.

Had a couple of small issues; very noisy bar across street on Saturday night, the other three nights we were there were not an issue. And a couple little things which we reported upon our departure. The manager seems attentive and efficient. She helped us find the house by coming out to meet us at the supermarket. Very nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Liz for your review. We all do our best to make your stay smooth and comfortable. I am glad that you do not have complains about our work. Is very unfortunate that you had the problem with the noise across the street and hopefully we can have you as our guest in the future. Yolanda Espinoza

Great Stay, Beautiful House

The house was beautiful, private and everything needed for a comfortable stay was provided. A very short walk to the malecon and shopping. Friendly, attractive town w tons of great restaurants.

We had a great stay! Next time we are in La Paz I will definitely be returning to Casa Abuelita.

I highly recommend!
