I could not have asked for a more perfect location for my vacation in Puerto Escondido. The house has a beautiful pool overlooking Playa Zicatela, the third best surfing beach in the world. Each morning, I had coffee by the pool and watched surfers in the distance.
The house is within walking distance to grocery shopping, other small shops of all types, and the beach! Even though a washing machine and clothes line is available at the house, a full service laundry is only a block and a half away and very reasonably priced. A bus line, with safe and clean buses, is only a block away; and taxis are readily available and very affordable.
The house itself is comfortable, nicely decorated, and very clean. I love the tile work! Everything we needed was easily available. The grounds are well groomed with beautiful, exotic plants. And the parrots living at the house, added a level of tropical nuance.
The house, with its grounds and pool, is like an oasis in a third-world experience that I thoroughly enjoyed. The people of Puerto Escondido are friendly and helpful; the colors, sights and sounds are an experience that I'll never forget. And after a day at the beach, or enjoying the town, coming back to the oasis to relax by the pool was pure perfection. I can't wait to return!
