The pictures don't do the place justice. A lovely place to stay just off the malecon, perfect location. The owner is a lovely person. Couldn't have been a better place to stay for three nights with my family.
We have been to La Paz several times. We have stayed at this location twice (last year at Casita Tamarindo). Casa de la Vaquita serves our purposes perfectly. Easy walking distance to the Malecon and tons of restaurants. The fish and meat markets are within walking distance and the market for everything you need is right across the street. Your hosts, Kevin and Christine, are highly knowledgeable about the city and outlying areas and willing to share their knowledge. The court yard is great...Our dog Willie loves it....And his Mimi and Jelly Bean (Kevin and Christine's dogs). We enjoy meeting the new "neighbors". So many interesting people! The people of La Paz are wonderful too! Come to La Paz as strangers....Leave as friends!!
Home was fine but not as expected. The house is fun and the owners are friendly and supportive. La Paz was great as well. Our concern is the house was not private and we had slight security concerns.
This is a not what I would expect when renting a private house. This is a shared residence with people (other guests, workers, owners, etc...) coming and going daily. Mostly because the other rental had multiple renters during our stay. It could be a little uncomfortable just to go to the restroom as it enters through the shared court yard. Note that during our 2 week stay we had three sets of guests (two families and a group of friends). There were all great.
We were warned to avoid water and electricity usage upon arrival. We were ok with supporting that but quickly learned that occasionally we had zero water. Not a trickle. Other guests or cleaners washing linens or clothes was suspected as the problem.
The slight security concern was that we had someone aggressively banging on the entry door to the court yard in the middle of the night. We assume it was someone leaving the nearby bar. Unnerving as we don't speak Spanish and we realized that we had no way of calling the police if needed.
This smartly decorated, well furnished and comfortable house with a complete modern kitchen is 1.5 blocks from the Malecon, and 2 blocks from Cathedral Square. Many of the best restaurants in La Paz and amenities are within near walking distance. Across the corner is a supermarket that will grill your meat for you and next door are sold the best fresh tortillas ever!!!! The Tues & Sat. farmers market is delightful. Can't beat the location or the hosts. Christine and Kevin are charming and extremely knowledgeable of La Paz resources. If lucky, they will take you on a panga ride in the harbor (with dog Little Bean) pointing our historical and ecological landmarks. A delightful place to stay.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights with our daughters and it was wonderful. The hosts were very accommodating as our arrival time changed a lot. The house is wonderful. It is in a wonderful neighborhood and your can feel a part of it. We loved it and will go back there for certain.
