A traditional La Paz home, Casa Abuelita was built over a hundred years ago. It has been given an exquisite renovation that preserves the history and beauty of an old home while bringing you the comforts and amenities of the 21st century. The original doors, cleaned and waxed, still hang beneath the wooden beams and corrugated roof where they have been for decades, but they are now accompanied by a layer of foam insulation and waterproofing that allow for comfortable nights, even in the heat of summer. The side street rooms that once served as space for typing classes given by Señora Julieta have been remodeled and are now finely designed bathrooms that also act as buffers from the street noise. Inside the house you will find an unexpected peace and serenity, especially in the central garden where an old well still reaches down into the La Paz aquifer. We take pride decorating all of our houses, and we’ve spent much time giving Casa Abuelita bird-themed artwork that brings more light and beauty to its open spaces.
Casa Abuelita lies in the heart of old La Paz, one block from the Malecón (the boardwalk that lines the cove), and one block from the Cathedral and the central plaza. La Paz’s finest restaurants are within a block or two of the house. Within strolling distance, you will find two traditional Mercados where you can buy fresh fish, meats and vegetables. Casa Abuelita is the perfect place to explore Baja California Sur’s only true Mexican city, set like a pearl in the crown of the Bay of La Paz. Your days can be spent wandering the shops and markets, strolling the Malecón or heading to the islands for scuba diving, snorkeling, or playing with the sea lion cubs.
