TRANQUILITY... WIDE-OPEN BEACHES... A VACATION TO REMEMBER...

Huatulco Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo: 1 king bedroom + 2 twin futon beds in living room, 1.5 bath (Sleeps 2-4)

Cielo, meaning heaven or sky in Spanish, is an alluring one-bedroom rental unit in the new, luxury, Mediterranean-style, oceanfront 22-unit community of Sueño del Mar (or Ocean Dream) on Chahue Bay in Huatulco, Mexico. The beautifully decorated, fully-equipped condo is ideal for a couple or a family. In addition to the king bed in the master bedroom, the two twin sofa sleepers in the living room can be used separately or pushed together to create another king bed. You have everything in the condo that you need for a comfortable stay, from a designer kitchen to an iPod docking station. The large pool in the condominium complex is beautiful, with lush palms and foliage surrounding it. There is a common area with a poolside BBQ and a rooftop lanai where you can watch the sunset over the bay. If you'd prefer to be waited on, just take a short stroll to the Beach Club Bar and Restaurant. Cielo is centrally-located and everything, including the airport, is just a short taxi ride away.

Languages spoken on premises: English, Spanish and German.

Security: 24-hour security and guard-gated entrance.

Steve and Danielle Rodhouse reside in Monterey, California where Steve is a contractor and Danielle is a Hypnotherapist, childbirth educator, and Doula. They have two active grade-school age boys. It has always been a family dream to have a property in a tropical setting. When they visited Huatulco for the first time, they realized they had found their paradise.

Danielle & Steve Rodhouse purchased this condo in 2009

The first time they visited Huatulco, Steve & Danielle fell in love with its charm, beauty, adventure, and peace. It was everything they had been searching for in Mexico. The nine stunning bays with 36 pristine beaches give endless beautiful space to explore. The charm of La Crucecita is ideal for evening strolls and dinners out. Sueño del Mar is a short and inexpensive taxi ride to most of the beaches, Santa Cruz, and La Crucecita. The locals are warm and welcoming. They love the area and hope you will also enjoy making it your home base during your vacation.

GREAT STAY IN HUATULCO

  • 4 of 5
We stayed 2 weeks at Cielo and would consider this unit again. The condo complex is ideally situated with amenities at your doorstep. We did have some minor issues with ants, but Maria and staff took care of the problem promptly. Ironically when we returned to B.C., we discovered ants had taken up residence in our own home while we were away. They are in every part of the world. We left behind a portable umbrella that was inexpensive @ Super Che, so hopefully the next visitors will enjoy it as it was handy on the beach for providing shade. Overall, our stay in Huatulco was great and part of that experience was our enjoyable stay at Cielo.

LOVELY!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Cielo last March with my husband and two kids. We had a marvelous time and could not have been more comfortable. The kids slept on the L-shaped sofa and we were in the very comfortable master bedroom. The staff was friendly and professional.
The local people were kind and gracious. The condo itself was comfy and clean and the swimming pool was gorgeous - I'd love to go back and so would my family!

NICE WELL LOCATED CONDO

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a 4 week stay at Cielo , arriving immediately after the review that follows this one. ( thanks for the tequila. ) My wife and I have travelled the world staying in all types of accomodation from 2 - 5 star and we know that when travelling to keep an open mind.... Nothing will be like at home. Cielo is a very nice sized unit with beautiful wood furniture.... A comfortable bed....a huge beautiful shower and because the unit never receives direct sun.... It is cool and the deck balcony can be used morning, afternoon and evening. We stayed in an ocean view unit in this complex two years ago and while the view was nicer the deck was unuseable during the day due to sun /heat The metal deck furniture is hard on the rear but the solution was simple.... Two cushions to sit on and a couch cushion for the back....all good. The kitchen is well appointed but is tight for more than one person so I was in charge of alcohol. We did not find noise an issue... Every unit in this complex hears the thump of the nightclub on weekends but the bedroom AC drowned it out. Door noise/bottles can be heard but it is very brief.... So for us was not an issue. Ants.....in a tropical climate there are ants.....we bought a can of Raid ....took our garbage out each morning... Sprayed ... Voila .... No ants. The last point....the windows are glazed and are really not two way.... Failing that... The blackout curtains block light coming in and no one can see in the bedroom if they happen to be up in a palm tree in the park across the street. I am being a bit sarcastic here because I believe the last review is a bit unfair but we are all entitled to our opinions. This unit is well located... Can walk or cheap cab it anywhere... Is 100 yds to the beach....restaurants etc We came away feeling like Cielo was a great unit for our holiday and represented good value

DON'T COMMIT TO A LONG STAY

Don't commit to a long stay
  • 2 of 5
The location of this complex is great, close to everything, pool is nice, and the condo has most amenities of a home. Loved the in suite washer/dryer. We stayed at this condo for 6 weeks starting January 1st 2014. However after week two, the negative aspects of this condo were starting to get to us. This condo is on the 2nd floor, above the main entrance, facing the street. This unit is the least favourable location of this complex. Around 8am the residents of the condo complex start dropping liquor bottles in the recycle center, and the noise wakes you up. Also, you are disturbed by the main door constantly banging closed which is created by the vacuum of the building design. There is no balcony/patio view as there are 3 palm trees right at eye level. You need the palm trees there, since the view from inside the master bathroom door lines up with the public street (via the bedroom patio door to the patio facing the street). There is very little natural breeze flow in this unit. The balcony furniture is not comfortable for sitting outside at nights, might be okay for eating purposes, but the balcony space is tight and awkward. There were continually ants on the kitchen counter. The kitchen space is tight, if two people are trying to cook in the area. The A/C and fans are noisy. Be prepared on Friday and Saturday nights for loud rapper music to keep you up from midnight to 4am. The condo is overpriced when you consider the noise disruption issues and loss of quiet enjoyment.

In my opinion, if you are looking to stay at this complex/condo for an extended period, anything over 1 week, it is best to upgrade to a condo facing the ocean and down scale the length of your trip to best fit your budget. The condos facing the ocean get a great breeze, and the balconies are really large and provide a nice place to spend evenings.

PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Our week-long stay in this condo surpassed any of our expectations. We have travelled many times to Huatulco but all-inclusives and this was the best trip yet. If we could sum up our stay in just a few words ( HOT, QUIET, RELAXING, SAFE). It was PERFECT!!!!
It is conveniently located to everything. A quick walk to the Super Che grocery store and to Santa Cruz. However next time we would do our grocery shopping for fresh fruit, veggies and meat in La Crucecita. Most evenings we would take a cab to La Crucecita for dinner, which was only 20 pesos one way. Our dinners were very well priced, typically 300 to 400 pesos for the two of us including drinks and an entree each. To name a few, Tostados Grill, La Crema, Giordana's, El Sabor de Oaxaca however many more to choose from.
The condo unit was beautifully decorated, well stocked with everything you would need and more. Very clean and cozy. Sueno del Mar itself is beautiful. Very quiet, clean and beautiful gardens & views The pool clean, quiet and beautiful. Most often we had the pool and area to ourselves however those who do live there were very friendly and informative. The beach itself is only steps away and it was pretty quiet, clean and of course beautiful. There are beach clubs to get food and drinks at, pretty much everything one would need.
Maria was wonderful and all the staff included! The place is very well looked after.
Danielle thank you so much for everything. We are envious. Without a doubt we will return.

Map

Car: not necessary

The 9 bays that make up Huatulco offer a variety of activities for every taste & age. You can relax on one of the area’s golden sand beaches or actively explore the region.

Cielo is in one of the most prime & centrally located areas in all of Huatulco. Only steps from the complex is the pristine beach of Chahue Bay. A short walk finds you playing at the nearby beach clubs, enjoying one of the diverse selection of restaurants, or indulging in services at the full-service European spa next door.

Most visitors also enjoy the shopping, dining, and nightlife in the nearby charming fishing village of Santa Cruz (a quick walk or $1 taxi fare away) and the zócolo (town square) of La Crucecita.

Take a trip to the nearby coffee plantations in the sierra or sample the delicious local lobster. The National Mexican Turtle Center, the Barra del Potrero Iguana Sanctuary, the Botazoo Ecological Park, and the new crocodile reserve are also worth a visit.

Other Activities: kayaking, ATV tours
