The Condo was Perfect

The Condo was PERFECT! once we arrived we called Penny our contact and met her at Marina Cortez, where she gave us a list of the times the water taxi runs at. We arrived to the Condo at the Mogote and it was great, we loved it. There were 6 people in our group and each had a big room each with bathroom and shower, not to mention huge beds. The condos are great, clean and peaceful! and the staff was always on time and attentive to our needs!! We will definitely be coming back to La Paz and we will be staying here again!! I do recommend you buy food first since there is no huge market stores on the Mogote. Overall the pool is clean, the Jacuzzi is warm and the condos are perfect and clean!! You will not regret staying here!

Relaxed Couples

Can't say enough about the condo lots of room for four adults. Beaches you could walk for miles. Shuttle bus drivers the boat captains all were so helpful. Golf course was not busy was like having our own private golf course. Great golf course very helpful great food. We can not wait to go back.

Extraordinarias!!

Estas vacaciones fueron sin duda extraordinarias!! El penthouse es mucho más que en las fotos!! Es un lugar súper acogedor, las instalaciones increíbles!! La vista la mejor que pudimos haber imaginado!! Increíbles acabados! Increíbles baños cocina!! El asador lo disfrutamos al máximo en la terraza viendo bellos atardeceres!! Los nos estuvieron felices en el jacuzzi... No tengo palabras para expresar la tranquilidad y La Paz que uno experimenta en Paraíso del Mar.. Sin duda un lugar increíble!! Pudimos disfrutar en el campo de golf el día de la Pascua donde los más pequeños tuviera la experiencia de recoger sus huevos de pascua!! La playa es Maravillosa!! Si te levantas temprano y tomas una caminata podrás encontrar cantidad de caracoles hermosos!! Gracias por tan grande experiencia!!!

Beautiful Area and Great Condo

Two couples shared a condo for a week. Enough space for privacy and a nice kitchen for preparing meals in case we choose not to eat at the Survivor Bar, but the food was so good there we made that our usual choice for dinner. What a great place to relax and enjoy the peaceful ocean setting! We loved the pool and were fortunate that it wasn't terribly busy, so we could get chairs any time. Transportation was prompt and courteous. The water taxi between La Paz and the resort is always on time. We'd been at Cabo San Lucas the previous week. The contrast between that location, which is very busy and super developed and the condo at La Paz was striking. We'd go back to La Paz over Cabo anytime! Property Managers Penny and Jon were great and responsive to our questions and needs.

Simple, Easy, Very Out of the Way

It takes a bit of work to get there (flying to SJD, then a 2.5-3hr shuttle) but it is so very worth it. You're in a unique biome, on a beautiful beach, and ferrying between the resort and mainland (La Paz) is quite easy. There is a full time staff on hand to help with the transfers. The condos are very nice, and it's easy to spend a ton of time at the pool and pool bar. For trips for fishing, whale sharks, etc, you are often going to a place you can see from the condo! (Pro tip: try asking the guides to pick you up at the dock and even drop you off on the beach:). Loved our time there, will definitely return. Check out the season you are thinking about: There are a few great times for fishing, whale sharks are Dec-Mar, there is a whale-watching season and a sea turtle season, etc.

This Place is not to me Missed

My husband and I stayed for a month in the ground unit (A104). The condo exceeded all our expectations. It was gorgeous! The beach is right there, with dolphins and whales giving a show (almost every day) that we could see from our terrace. Chelle was great to deal with and made the booking process easy. Penny and Jon promptly took care of anything we needed and were a pleasure to deal with.

Love Love La Paz

We spent a week in an area without electricity! Arriving at Paraiso Del Mar was beyond our wildest expectations. The unit was immaculate! And allowed for our large family to stretch out without tripping over each other. The accommodations were first class. The bedrooms and bathrooms were like being at an expensive hotel. Great kitchen with spices, oil and sugar. The TV in the living room was exceptional! We watched a lot of SHARK WEEK!

This Condo is Unbelievable

Five of us decided at the last minute (a month early) to fly to La Paz for a week of relaxation and tequila. Where to stay? Check TripAdvisor for hotels and condos. Find pictures that look great but have seen others that weren't as advertised. Enter Chelle Miller, the owner who assured me that it was "as shown". That is 3 bedrooms/4 bathrooms/4 patios/large stocked kitchen (no food but all the condiments, spices and utensils you could ask for). We struck a deal and made ready to fly. When we arrived we were met at the dock by a charming representative who gave us the keys, a cell phone for local use and instructions and phone numbers in case of any unexpected need, This was followed by a short boat ride across the bay and a shuttle to our door. When we walked in we all said "Wow" several times.

Exceeded My Expectations

What a beautiful vacation rental. We enjoyed everything about Paraiso del Mar, from the ease of booking with Chelle, to the luxurious condo, to the amazing beach, ocean view, lovely pool. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Alissia was very helpful in arranging fishing excursions, the chef cooked us delcious meals with the fish we caught! La paz has many very good restaurants and shopping. We are definitely planning to vacation here again!

Affordable Yet Luxurious Trip

The condo was much larger than expected.. We had rented all 3 bedrooms with 3 couples and had plenty of room. We were able to cook a lot In the condo and have sunset dinners on the enormous deck... The condo really has everything you need... In the kitchen, bug spray if you need it, Beach towels, etc. You cannot beat the location and the amenities for the price!

Wonderful Penthouse and Wonderful Stay

This was truly an exceptional place: a beautiful penthouse overlooking the pool and the sea, with a poolside restaurant that served outstanding food at very reasonable prices. The penthouse itself was artfully decorated, spacious and luxurious, with great bedding, bathrooms, outdoor decks, etc. Getting around the resort and the peninsula was a breeze, thanks to the excellent transportation crew. And the water taxi to La Paz was really easy and always enjoyable. Super-helpful property managers and rental representative, too -- they made sure everything worked out great for us. And it did. Could not recommend this place more highly.

Beautiful Condo

We had a wonderful time staying at this condo. The condo itself is absolutely gorgeous--huge bathrooms, beautiful kitchen, breathtaking views, large balcony, and beautiful bedrooms. I think it was the nicest place we ever rented on Vrbo. We rented the third bedroom unit as well and we had sooo much room for our family of 6. The condo pool, hot tub and bar were great! We saw dolphins right off the beach one morning and my boys swam right out to them. Amazing! La Paz itself was so much fun. The boardwalk area is a lot of fun, and there are plenty of grocery stores for supplies. It is so easy to take the ferry to and from the condo, and the staff are all so nice as well as the other condo residents and guests. We did the snorkeling with sea lions tour and it was a great experience. Thank you thank you for a wonderful time!

Perfect Place and Perfect Vacation

Our first trip to Baja was nothing short of perfect. A friend recommended Paraiso del Mar and we are so glad we took her advice. The whole complex was terrific and we thoroughly enjoyed lazing around the infinity pool overlooking the Sea of Cortez, trying our hand at the paddle boards, walking on the beach and swimming in the wonderful warm water. What a fabulous location!

Amazing Place!

We absolutely loved it here! The condo was amazing and so huge! Furnishings were really beautiful and up to date. The kitchen had all we could need and more. We loved eating breakfast on our balcony each morning and looking out on the incredible view. We so appreciated the little details...They left us a huge bottle of water, they gave us a Mexican cell phone with credit on it so that we could easily make our local calls. They had a print out with answers to all the questions we could ever think of. Penny, the caretaker, was so helpful and even helped my boyfriend plan a wonderful Valentine's experience for me (recommending a romantic restaurant and making a reservation for us) and had red roses waiting for me when we arrived at the condo. We loved staying on the Mogote away from the main drag.

Happiness in La Paz

We are a French family of five people who had long dreamed of knowing the Baja California ... so after a long journey across the peninsula (but you can arrive directly by plane!) Here we are in late July to stay and rest a few days in La Paz, and there wonderful surprise ...
We were greeted like kings of the harbor and we were taken aboard a small boat quite charming on "El Paraiso del Mar" ... Happiness!  Our apartment was large, luxurious, comfortable, with great views of the Sea of ​​Cortez ... Great pool ... great restaurant ... great service always attentive and friendly to transport you into town (a few minutes) .. the beach , dolphins ... How to summarize all the wonders we have seen and experienced?  Chelle thank you, thank you for your kindness and efficiency ... Everything was perfect!

Summer Vacation 2013

We had a wonderful experience in La Paz and especially loved our condo at Paraiso del Mar. It had everything we wanted plus, it was beautiful and spacious.

10 Days in Paradise

The location can't be beat! The condo is fabulous (clean and luxurious). The view from the balcony (beach and pool area) is spectacular! The pool bar (drinks and food) is a must visit!! I would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

Perfect Family Vacation

We decided to vacation in La Paz for the first time this summer. We stayed at Paraiso del Mar for one month. It was wonderful! Our four kids loved to paddle board, snorkel and kayak in the Sea of Cortez. It is a great place for walks along the quiet beaches, collecting shells, and enjoying the magnificent sunsets! The pool was very large with a view to the ocean. Our condo was well appointed and had ocean views from every bedroom. The decor and appliances were all new. Everything was exactly as we hoped it would be! Everyone at Paraiso was extremely friendly and helpful. They had wonderful suggestions about places to eat and things to see and do! It was the perfect place to relax and unwind! We will definitely be back!

Unforgettable Experience - MUST GO AGAIN!!

I am not too much into doing reviews. I already have to do that for 6 direct reports at work and takes too much time, which is the only truly non renewable resource we have. But this is different, and as a La Paz native, I think I can give an honest assessment of what this place is, and is not. From the onset the process was smooth, the owner responsive and courteous. Our arrival was uneventful and with the proper directions after arriving at LAP airport provided by the owner, within 35 minutes we were at the condo. The views are spectacular, the beach is clean and pristine. The pool huge (50 meters) and the people at the swim-up bar friendly and accessible.

Only Regret is that we Should Have Stayed Longer

My husband, daughter, her husband and 3 young boys rented the 3 bedroom unit D301. It was an amazing home for 4 days. It is well equipped with a full kitchen, linens, WiFi, washer/dryer and 8 gallon bottle drinking water and even an Xbox/with games for the kids! The grounds are well kept, the pool is huge with a poolside restaurant that cooks fresh fish and other dishes all day long to order! La Paz is an interesting colonial city with tons of things to do. We took a Whale Shark expedition, where you can swim with these huge 20 foot gentile fish, it was so fun. Just exploring old town is an experience.

This Place Really is Paradise

Our holiday could not have been more divine. Everything, and I mean literally everything, worked out perfectly. The unit had everything we could have wanted and more. So comfortable. Clean. Tasteful and cozy decor, soft linens, great pots and knives, coffee pot, blender, all the little things that make being in a rented kitchen feel like you are at home. Awesome filtered water too! The view was the best in the whole place we are convinced. The weather could not have been better. After going into La Paz a few times (and enjoying its charm) we decided to stay put we liked it so much. Pablo and Sergio (pool dudes) definitely put on the best meal we had anywhere. They were great, made us feel welcome and very well cared for.

Truly Paradise

The owner Chelle and her property managers Jon and Penny are all a class act. They are very responsive to your needs and have great suggestions where to eat, etc. They lent us a local cell phone for the week which was really convenient. Please is very clean and comfortable. Food at the resort is an informal thing but probably the best food we had in La Paz. Getting to and from La Paz is via walk-on ferry that holds 30 so a little cumbersome but it's nice at night because you're on the peninsula and have the place to yourself. We parked our rental car at the marina in town so it was available any time.

Fabulous!

We have visited many different cities in Mexico, but I have to say, our stay in La Paz was an outstanding one. The condo we stayed in was nicely decorated and all the necessities one would need. Lots of towels, dishes, beach towels, etc. Everyone there was friendly and more than willing to help if you needed it. Highly recommend it, but be aware there is no Satellite TV. That was the only draw back, but there is so much to see and do that it did not matter.

Over the Top Comfortable and Beautiful

Our holiday could not have been more divine. Literally everything,was just perfect starting, with booking with Chelle who gave us all the advice and guidance we needed for the perfect vacation. The unit had everything we could have wanted and more. So comfortable. Clean. Tasteful and cozy decor, two balconies, privacy, quiet, soft linens, great pots,pans and sharp knives, coffee pot, blender, all the little things that make being in a rented kitchen feel like you are at home. Awesome double filtered water too! The view was the best in the whole resort we are convinced. The weather could not have been better.

Happiness

Everything about this place was wonderful. The people were very friendly and helpful when needed. The little boat ride to the mainland was a wonderful little ride. Golf carts were also a nice change. The condo was big, clean, nicely decorated, and with all the amenities one would need. Highly recommend it. The owner was wonderful to work with and helped solve any issues that we were concerned about, and her follow up was immediately after we returned. WONDERFUL

Wonderful Week

The pictures don't lie, that is the view! The condo is steps from a great pool, pool bar and reatuarant. The restaurant was a great option after a long day of activities. Go a little further and you're on a nice wide beach. The water was calm which made for great paddle boarding and kayaking. Tennis and golf are right on the island. Trips into town were easy with the water taxi. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

A Truly Delightful Vacation

The 2-bdrm condo at Paraiso del Mar (E402) was exactly as portrayed, in pristine condition and tastefully decorated with perfect views of Sea of Cortez, LaPaz, the pool, and landscaped grounds. The unit furnishings, comfy patio furniture, decor, bedding and kitchen accoutrements were perfect. The resort amenities were great and the staff was top notch! Property manager Chelle provided excellent support, and answered many, many questions; she connected us with a driver from the airport with a stop for groceries, and a golf cart to rent.
