Overview

About the property

1,100 square feet one bedroom, 1.5 baths . Large walk in shower. Great for two!

Our home is a one bedroom 1,100 square fee condo with 1.5 bathrooms situated right beside the pool. The Master unit has a new king bed and lots of closet space (though how much closet space do you need for a swim suit and a pair of shorts). There is a large walk in shower with two shower heads! White tile floor through out and granite counter tops with brightly cheerful Mexican colors throughout the home. There is a small gym for those who are so incline. Hang out In your double hammock or take a dip In the pool and then head down to the beach which Is a leisurely 15 minute walk. The 5 mile boardwalk Is right there. As you walk along the boardwalk In either direction, there Is nothing but white sandy beaches with some Palapas along the way for shade. There are plenty of restaurants to stop at for a bite or a cold one. You can watch the sailboats, paddle boarders. or an occasion whale go by. Life doesn't get much better then this. So many beaches and so little time. You might want to try paddle boarding, snorkeling or scuba diving Too. Some good snorkeling too!! There are beaches all along the Malecon and if you are driving there are some special spots a short driving distance away. Esperito Island has seal lions, colonies of birds and great snorkeling and beaches. For some boogy boarding head over to Todos Santos (40 minutes drive). There are two safe, fun, Boogie boarding beaches where you can also learn to surf. If golfing is your things you wont be disappointed!

When you return home from the beach it will be time to shower off In the pool side shower and take another dip In the pool, dry off and start preparations for dinner. We have a small propane BBQ for the use of long term guests (more than a month) . Time to BBQ those fresh prawns you bought this morning or a yummy steak. So many things to do! You might want to take a drive down the coast to Cabo San Lucas or down the sea of Cortes coast to Ventanas and beyond. Or perhaps head up to Magdalena Bay for Whale watching. Believe me, it is easy to spend a life time exploring all there is to see in the Baja.

About Ruth-Ann Stewart

Hi We are an adventurous couple who love traveling the world. We bought a place in Arizona( #432395) thinking that the dryness would be great but we missed the water (being from the west coast). So the Baja was a perfect balance of the two. We wanted a place that was private, had a gym and and a pool. This place is perfect for that. Now that Ted is retired he has lots of time to keep our new home in tip top shape. Since we are still traveling abroad we thought it would be nice to be able to share our special spot with other mature couples (over the age of 40 please) looking for a safe and adventurous vacation.

Ruth-Ann Stewart purchased this condo in 2015

Why Ruth-Ann Stewart chose Colina del Sol

We love that the pool and hot tub are right in front of our patio and that there is a gym beside our unit as well as a charcoal Barbeque . Also there are only two units on the ground floor. Very private. We love our peek-a-boo view of the ocean and the great sea breezes we get because we are on a hill (colina del sol means hill of the sun). The condominium only has 16 units which makes it more personal. There is a mix of Mexican and foreign owners so you get to practice your Spanish if you want. The Malecon being so close is a plus.We just walk down to it and choose a spot on the beach, go to a restaurant or participate in a water sport. It is fabulous!!

What makes this condo unique

With only two units on the ground floor it is like having your own pool and hot tub! Hardly anybody uses it. Having a gym and a BBQ right beside us is so convenient. There is a huge family size Hammock which is a dream come true for us. Our dream was being in the tropics hanging out in our hammock watching the day go by. The new walk in shower with two shower heads is great. No more fighting over the water! There is even a little bench to sit down in it if you are exhausted from a hard day at the beach. This home is close to everything and yet so peaceful. A nice place to reflect on life.

Great condo, very clean, everything worked. Property was just like owner said it would be.

  • 5 of 5

Property was excellent in almost every way. The only glitch we had was when we got there, there was no one to let us in. It is a very secure place. Shortly there after the guard showed up and let us in. After we got in there were keys for the gate and we had no problem after that. We would use the condo again but would probably rent a car. The walk to town is easy and you can usually catch a bus, but the walk home is steep, as the owner did tell us, so we took cabs home. The cabs are reasonable price, 60 pesos to 110 depending on where you were coming from.

The phone is a great addition as you can call US or Canada at no cost.

The property manager was there every morning doing yard work and cleaning the pool. He keeps the grounds in excellent condition and was very helpful in getting us whatever we needed.

Great place!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Jim and Liz. That you for your review. Yes the check in sometimes has a glitch. We are trying to figure out away to overcome it. We may start sending the fob to guest a head of time. Or just ask that they arrive before 2 or after 7 when there will be a worker available to let them in. Almost too secure ;) Thanks for giving a heads up to guests about the hill. I really try to enphasis it. Great for a cardio workout if you are so inclined. We look forward to seeing you again.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Ruth Ann was very helpful. Always just a phone call or text away. Very quiet. Loved the hammock! We didn’t rent a car, just bikes. A little bit of extra exercise going up the hill to the condo! Probably would rent a car next time. Very clean. Had the poolside to ourselves. Definitely would rent it again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon!! The Hammock is a favorite for me too. Easy to spends hours in it with a book. The hill up to the condo is a great cardio workout for sure. Ruth-Ann

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property is on a nice hill overlooking the sea and close to the popular Malecon.

The complex is safe and secure. The unit is tidy, well organized and very functional.

The owners are very responsive and are a click away from explaining anything that needs it.

We will definitely go back if we go to La Paz again.

La Paz at Colina Del Sol

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the condo on the first of February and were immediately impressed with the unit. It was as described and shown in photos on the website. It also had some extra touches to make it seem like your home and not a rental property. The unit is larger than most one bedrooms that we have rented previously added to the comfort. The pool was right outside the balcony. They could use some more shade around the pool but the sun never got around to the back patio until after three in the afternoon.

The location to the malecon was convenient and great for morning walks. There was never a concern for our safety and the locals were all very friendly and helpful. There were many enjoyable events during our stay ( three months). There was an elite ironman competition and also a professional beach volleyballl tournament while we wre there. The also had a great week long festival that involved vendors along street on both sides along with three nights of parades.

Ruth-Ann took great care of us right from the start. She even offered to show us the unit the year before we rented it. She kept us well informed prior to our arrival anb also contacted us on our arrival date to make sure we were settled in. We had a small issue within the first week of arrival with the clothes washer going on the fritz. We sent Ruth-Ann an email about the issue and she had a repairman show up to the unit and it was repaired and operational within two hours. There was never a problem after that.

We enjoyed staying in La Paz over previous vacations we have taken in San Jose del Cabo. It was not as touristy and more laid back than the Cabo corridor. We definitely go back to La Paz and would not hesitate to rent this unit again.

Owner's Response: Ray thank you for your great review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. One thing that we have become accustom to down here is never knowing what will go wrong with appliances. A lot of it has to do with hard water. We have learn patience by living here. We hope to see you again soon. Ruth-Ann and Ted

We spent a wonderful week @ Colinas del sol LaPaz BaHa at end of Jan/17. Our trip was impromptu hence the short stay-I would suggest a longer time frame 3weeks or more as there are many day trips, beaches to explore Ted and RuthAnn (owners) have brochures,maps in the condo. I loved the spacious layout-king size bed with view of pool and beyond-also large double spa shower-It was so relaxing to have coffee on the poolside patio .We liked shopping for our supplies and cooked most of our meals in the fully equipped kitchen . The whole complex is very well taken care of caretaker on site. Bird watchers delight-LaPaz- pelicans,frigates, turkey vultures etc. Zebra doves scamper around pool- Thanks to our hosts-looking forward to return soon Joan

Winter getaway in La Paz

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Colina Del Sol for 9 nights at the end of January, 2017 during our vacation to La Paz. The unit was provided by Ruth Ann and Ted who own the suite. We flew into San Jose and rented a car to drive to La Paz. The road from airport to La Paz is 4 lane and a very easy drive.

The apartment is large and plenty of room for the 2 of us and enough room for a couple of extra people although they would not have their own bedroom. The kitcken /dining/living area is large and provided all the necessary amenities for comfortable living while we were there. We had a tendency to cook our meals in and only ate out a few times.

The bedroom is large with fresh linen and lots of towels for all our showering needs. The bath has an extra large shower that has room for 2. In-suite laundry is also there if you are planning on staying for a while.

Being on the ground floor there is easy access to the swimming pool and hot tub. Just make sure if the hot tub has not being used earlier by other tenants or guests to start the hot tub so that it is hot when you want to use it.

We rented a car so it was only a short drive to the central part of La Paz, just be careful where you park during your trips into La Paz

All in all we enjoyed our stay in La Paz and visits to the surrounding beaches and towns. Thank you Ruth Ann and Ted for the enjoyable stay in La Paz. We look forward to our next trip to La Paz and our stay at Colina Del Sol.

Location

Car: necessary

We are on a hill over looking La Paz and the Bay. There are great beaches in the area for all kinds of water sports. there are also golf courses if you are a golf enthusiast.

One of the highlights of this area is the close proximity of the boardwalk where you can walk for over 5 miles in either direction.. The locals and visitors can be seen strolling along it in the evening. Restaurants line this street as well.

Here are directions to our place from near the malecon:

come from town towards the beach on Alvaro Obregon. Turn right on Heroes del 47, see BreezeMart on corner. Go 6 blocks to Ignacio Manuel Altamirano. A large SCT building on the left hand side. Turn left on Altamirano. Go straight down the hill one block to and over Fransisco King Rondero and up the steep hill. Make a left at the very top of hill. We are the first condo.
