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.

Great Stay, Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

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!

Quaint, lovely, serene authentic hideaway

  • 5 of 5

I would love to tell you that this place was horrible and that you should never stay....because we want to keep this jewel to ourselves. But that would be selfish. Soooo...

Casa Abuelita was absolutely charming with its old world style. It is beautifully decorated with a subtle bird theme that made it fun to discover the birds which are sprinkled throughout the house.

The garden was a quiet oasis of tranquility, shutting out the bustle of the neighborhood right outside the doors.

Ana is a treasure. She spent a lot of time educating us about the house, as well as referring us to places to see and things to do in La Paz. She even showed us where to shop for food (right around the block) and where to buy fresh fish....yum..we watched them fillet our fish right in front of us.

The neighborhood is fantastic...coffee shops and restaurants within walking distance, and a block or two from the malecon.

The beds were excellent, the kitchen stocked with items like coffee and tea and with a very respectable amount of kitchen equipment.

We felt as though we had been invited to stay in a good friends home.

We would heartily recommend this beautiful home to anyone.

Amazing Casa, amazing experience, amazing service!

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this property are beautiful, however, being there and experiencing it was magical. Everything from the moment we arrived and meeting Anna, to using the dip pool on a hot day, and walking to nearby restaurants and grocery stores. Would definitely head back there for an extended stay!
