Close to everything but away from it all

  • 5 of 5

La Casa de Curia is the absolute perfect homebase for exploring a bit of Ecuador's Ruta del Spondylus. The house is very comfortable and was ideal for our group of 5 (although it could easily accommodate more). It's location high on a hill allows you to take advantage of the refreshing ocean breezes, while being close enough to the beach to hear the crashing waves. And with access to a private and nearly deserted beach just a short walk down the hill, you might not want to leave the property at all.

Once you do get motivated to leave, there is much to do and see within a short drive. Montañita's party scene - if that's your thing - is an easy (and cheap) cab ride away. Personally, we preferred the more peaceful vibe on the beach in Olón, where a row of beachfront restaurants serve up delicious fresh seafood and cold beers at unbelievably affordable prices. Don't miss the ceviche de ostra sold from the little cart - it seriously doesn't get any fresher. One of the highlights of the trip was watching local fisherman pull up their catch on the beach while the enormous frigates and pelicans swooped and dove to get their fill of fish. Amazing!

But much more amazing than the house and it's incredible location are the people you will meet at Casa de Curia. Don Julio was incredibly helpful to us and I am so glad to have met him. He truly went above and beyond for us, especially when my daughter had a little surfing accident and split her lip. I was so worried that she might need stitches, but Don Julio knew just who to call (it seems he knows everyone and everyone knows him) and she got treatment within half an hour. I cannot thank him enough for his kindness.

I would simply add that you can book this house with confidence, knowing that you will be in excellent hands during your stay. We will definitely be back. Thank you Bernardo and Don Julio.

Best Trip Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend La Casa de Curia - beautiful views, amazing home and great locations. You will not be disappointed when staying at La Casa De Curia. Truly a memorable experience and can't wait to go back. You are so close to Montanita, have access to a private beach, witness the most beautiful sunsets...we can't say enough good things about La Casa De Curia - you will just have to experience it for yourself.

Wedding Getaway

  • 5 of 5

La Casa Grande is very spacious and comfortable. The location is great, a few minutes from Olon and the beaches of Montanita. The private access to the beach is kept clean and we walked no more than three minutes, the beach is beautiful, quiet and clean. We enjoyed our time in Curia, it was wonderful not having to worry about cooking, for a small fee you can enjoy delicious food. The venue of the wedding was five minutes away, so convenient for us. The property is beautiful and well taken care of. My children enjoy the beach, however, if the house had a pool it would be even better. We would definitely consider coming back. Don Julio was of great help, he is very friendly and informative.

Time to Relax

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was spacious, clean, comfortable, and inviting. There were five of us adults with two cars with plenty of parking. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and dishes. We loved lounging on the porch, relaxing in one of the three hammocks, playing cards and drinking wine/beer at the table on the porch, and we appreciated the safety and privacy we felt. Julio and Elena (probably misspelled), the housekeeper, were friendly, happy to help with anything, and checked on us daily. The house is near a grocery, near Montanita, a party beach town, and a five minute walk down the hill to the beach. It was nice to have Wi-Fi to keep up with friends back home. By the time we left, we truly felt like it was home away from home. We loved it!!!!
