About Valerie Sherrer

Valerie Sherrer purchased this House in 2017
Why Valerie Sherrer chose La Paz
In late 2017, we were vacationing in La Paz for 10 days for the very first time. We decided on a trip to the Sea of Cortez on the recommendation of a fellow lifetime diver who told us about the sea lions and opportunities to dive with them. Being a huge fan of all large animals living in and under the water, I couldn't wait to go and even timed our trip so that we would be there when the sea lion pups were the most playful and interactive. Our dives in the Sea of Cortez did not disappoint! We went with an excellent environmentally-conscious company and had the time of our lives with the sea lions and were equally impressed with the wrecks and other dives we experienced. Halfway through our trip we both looked at each other and said "we love this place - it should be on our short list of places we want to own a home and settle someday!" That "someday" happened a lot sooner than we anticipated. The temporary caretaker of the B&B we stayed at was selling his house and relocating to the States. On the last night of our trip, we saw his house and we just fell in love. Within three weeks, we'd made the decision to own a little piece of Mexico and call this Casita our own. We vacationed in La Paz again with our extended family in January. Each time we fall a little more in love with this town and the people here. Our hope is that Casita de Sueños makes your dreams come true, helps you fall in love with La Paz just like it has for Jay and me, and provides a space for you to relax and experience peace and rest.
What makes this House unique
We find this quaint, cozy home to be the perfect place to relax, refresh, rest, and plan our adventures. The well-stocked kitchen and large fridge make it easy to feel right at home. The bistro lights make for a fun evening just hanging out on the patio. The en suite bathrooms make this an ideal choice for two couples traveling together. Because we're divers, we've got hooks to hang gear, rinse buckets, and easy access to water. The extras we provide are things we'd like to find ourselves when renting and traveling - cooler, ice packs, travel coffee mugs, beach towels, beach chairs, and a great book of recommendations for your time in La Paz!

house was ok! a bit far from the malecon, unless you have a car! was not clear that there was no TV or stereo or wash cloths! Owner Valerie wonderful as well as property management couple!! We had to grease the lock on front gate and neighborhood has lots of penned up overactive dogs that bark constantly! We enjoyed our time despite!
We loved having Abby stay at Casita de Suenos! She was a joy to communicate with and a fellow lover of travel like myself. :)
I have taken these comments to heart and will do our best to rectify for future guests.
We have washcloths for the bathroom and the kitchen so I will make sure the housekeeper places those in appropriate (and visible) locations.
I am planning to provide some disposable earplugs and a noise machine for each bedroom in case the neighborhood dogs act up again (typically they are quiet, but this stay was during Carnaval which is a week long city-wide festival and having never been present during this, had no clue how lively things become across the whole city :)
We do recommend a car or budgeting for Uber (it's just a few USD to get to the Malacon) so I appreciate that reference for future guests too.
We do not yet have plans to get a stereo or tv (although high-speed wi-fi is provided) but would ask future guests to inquire if that has changed.
We work very hard to provide 5-star stays for all our guests. I'm sorry we missed the mark this time, Abby, but hope you'll give us a try in the future! Happy travels and hurry back to La Paz. :)
