About the property

Main House, 3 Beds, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6) + Apartment 2 Beds, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Casa Sorpresa (Surprise House) is in the city center of La Paz, on same block of the City Museum and very close to Malecon, to the Cathedral Square and to the shopping and supermarkets area (walking distance).

You cannot see Casa Sorpresa from the street, but once you cross the front door the house welcomes you with a large and peaceful patio, a very quiet and reserved place. No one can see you while you're relaxing in the pool!

Main House

The courtyard always provides shade, thanks to the house layout and to the presence of a large mango tree and a tangerine tree.

Casa Sorpresa has been built just 5 years ago, with wonderful finishes and ample spacing.

The house features 3 bedrooms (2 king size and 2 single beds). Rooms have their private access to the patio and their windows overlook the pool. The two king size bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms.

Large Mexican style kitchen with every modern appliance (electric oven, dishwasher, side by side fridge, espresso machine, gas stove, microwave). The kitchen is directly connected to the living room and can host you and your friends for dinner. The outside covered patio features a second kitchen and is equipped for outdoor lounging and dining.

Every room is air conditioned (kitchen included). Guests of main house have an indoor garage for 1 car at their disposal. Pool cleaning and plants are taken care of by the owner.


In the same property you can rent an apartment with indipendent entrance. It offer 1 king beedroom, 1 double bedroom, 2 bathrooms, living room with kitchen, covered terrace. Living and bedrooms are air conditioned.

Only if you rent the apartment, you can not use the pool, the covered parking and the courtyard.

The main house and the apartment have their own privacy, but we prefer to rent both houses for a large group of guests.

Great property location and value.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sorpresa is indeed a pleasant surprise. Located a few blocks from the malecón and within walking distance from everything you need during your stay. We did not rent a car and walked or used Uber to move around. Owner is very accessible and is assisted by Antonio as property manager who was also very accessible and helpful. Property has everything you need for your trip (towels, toiletries, silverware, etc.I definitely recommend the property.

Perfectly beautiful and accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Sopresa completely lived up to the website description and all the great reviews. We stayed for a week with 4 adult children, and it was perfect for the six of us. (With room for more!) Everything we needed outside of the casa was within walking distance, and it was nice to have a garage for our rented vehicle (we drove up from SJD). Antonio, the property manager, was very responsive to all of our communications. He helped the guys coordinate a private fishing exclusion for a great price, which they could not have done on their own, not knowing anyone in the area. We recommend this property and would certainly stay here again.

Great home for large family

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the nicest homes we have stayed at in Baja. The house is fully furnished with all the necessities you need. It is very clean and well maintained. The pool was a great feature to have while it was hot during the day. It is located very close to the malecon and beach and we walked there daily. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in La Paz!

The owner is very responsive via email

Beautiful courtyard. Kitchen and living area has lots of room. Master bath and bedroom is great.

  • 4 of 5

We leased the whole property for 4 of us. Friends couldn’t come at last minute so we had plenty of room! The property has an unusual lay out. The master area is in the main house. Two bedrooms and a bath are reached by out side stairs. Another bedroom is also reached from outside. Then there is a 2 bedroom apartment with kitchen in yet another stairway. Great for 2 families. We all stayed in the main house where our son and grandson slept on the sectional and were comfortable. It was not ideal but it worked.

The house was very clean and just as pictured. We were very comfortable. Our rent car fit in the garage, which was an added bonus.

Antonio is a great host. We saw him in town on several occasions and he wanted to be sure we were comfortable.

This was our 3rd trip to La Paz and our son’s first. We visited several restaurants and went fishing with great results. The place to go for fishing at a reasonable price is the Bay of Dreams. Locals can tell you were it is. Go a day before and make arrangement with the captain. Beautiful water and lots of fish. $130 for two of us.

We did not find the location to be within walking distance. If you are a runner, in excellent shape and 20 something you might be able to walk. We are seniors and all of us are not in shape. We were thankful for the car. The neighborhood is very nice and for the most part well kept. We felt very safe there and recommend it to anyone, especially s large group. Convenient to the supermarket and restaurants.

Visit the beaches when you come to La Paz! They are gorgeous.

Amazing garden. Main house is really nice, although the rooms do not communicate. We are a family with young kids, and that was not ideal for us. More convenient for 4 adults or a family with teenagers.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived into La Paz mid-afternoon on New Years Day. We met the 'contact' for the house, Antonio, at his Gelato shop near the Malacon. A short drive away was this villa.

As others have stated, the curb appeal may leave a bit to be desired. However, once you enter the courtyard, you will be amazed at the quality of this Villa.

We rented the villa with two families - 4 adults and 3 teenagers. One couple enjoyed the 'main house' which is in the back of the property. This has the spacious and well-laid out kitchen, the living room, a huge bedroom and bathroom. The other couple enjoyed the spacious upstairs suite, which had its own private staircase entry. Again, a good size bedroom and large bathroom. One of the boys stayed in the lower room, with a bathroom he could use across the courtyard, while two other boys enjoyed the separate apartment, which had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large living/kitchen area and its own balcony. So we ultimately had five bedrooms in use, and each bedroom had access to its own bathroom.

The villa was VERY comfortable. We really enjoyed the huge open courtyard, with a private pool, several comfy sitting areas, two covered sitting areas, and a tangerine tree that provided us with our daily dose of fresh fruit. We cooked several meals in the well-appointed kitchen, and used the gas grill in the courtyard. The LEY grocery store was located a short two blocks away and had absolutely everything we could have wanted, all at very reasonable prices.

We had two cars, so we parked one in the protected garage, and the other directly in front of the villa, on the street. We considered it a safe area.

The wi-fi worked great, and they even had SKY television in the lounge, although we really didn't watch TV.

We particularly loved how they decorated the villa, and we appreciate the excellent style.

While in La Paz, we took advantage of the whale shark snorkeling, we went fishing (about a 1 hour drive away, took a day trip to Todos Santos, and enjoyed walking around and exploring.

There are only two complaints that we had: there was a bad smell in the living area of the apartment; and please note that the villa is located directly next to a museum, which had some traditional Mexican dance lessons going on - the music and foot stomping was loud, but usually over by 9pm.

If you are looking for a private home, away from any crass tourism and in a fun, local neighborhood, this is your kind of place. We highly recommend it.
