What's it like to live on Baja, La Paz?

My husband and I are expats from the States. We've lived in Puerto Vallarta and Ajijic. We've traveled Mexico but we have never been to the Peninsula. I don't rely on english, I prefer speaking spanish here.We are looking for a comfortable house very near the ocean, safe for us and our 3 doggies. What can you tell us about life on the Peninsula? How much should we expect to pay in rent for a 2-3 bedroom house, walking distance to the beach with a pool?

Keep in mind that "near the beach" isn't the same as being "near the ocean" here. Being near a *swimming* beach is tougher, especially if you want a house. Near the ocean, not a problem. To get a larger house with a pool, I'd guess you're in *at least* $2000/month. I know of a few homes, with pools, but are at $1500/week.

You could check Costa Baja to see if they have some unsold condos or homes they would rent.
