Overview

Montanita Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This brand new suite is located just steps from the sand...The beach is clean, sandy, and amazingly private! In long walks, you will encounter very few other folks... The suite is tiled throughout, with the new bath being tiled floor to ceiling. The hot water is provided by a water heater with a tank, not instant hot, meaning that you have a lot of hot water right now. The kitchen is totally furnished, including stove, fridge, coffee maker, and instant hot and cold bottled water. Microwave, Osterizer, and toaster, too!

The queen bed is top of the line 'pillow top', for restful sleeping while listening to the soothing ocean sounds...There is a sitting area with easy chairs and a glass-topped dining table which views the breaking waves. You can sit in bed and watch the waves break, too! Your private patio has a table and four chairs. You can walk off the patio and be wiggling your toes in sand in five paces.

From there you can walk miles in either direction. We are located near a hospital and several pharmacies. Your parking is totally protected. We live on the property, and we also employ another couple who provide services that are needed. You can walk along the beach for 30 minutes and arrive in fun-filled Montanita. To keep you in touch with the world, we also provide DirecTV with HBO, CNN Int'l, Fox News, and a huge number of entertainment channels...WiFi is also available...

Why Bob & Roxanne chose Montanita

We have been living here since 2007...The new suite is the lower floor our our personal house. It fronts directly on the beach, while we are a level up. We love this location, and we thought that other folks would enjoy sharing our experience. The suite was completed in November of 2010.

We are happy to respond personally to your inquiries, and we try to do so within 60 minutes.

What makes this apartment unique

The absolute best benefit is the proximity to a wonderful, clean and virtually unused beach. The sand is right at the edge of your private patio. Your suite is absolutely private. We live here, and are always glad to share our experiences with guests.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent almost the entire month of March in the Alta suite. As first time travellers to Ecuador, Bob and Roxanne were fantastic.Any questions that arose, prior to or upon our arrival, they had the answers.They even arranged our transportation from the airport to the coast.They greeted us warmly when we arrived,and the suite is exactly as advertised, everything you could need is here.It's obvious our hosts have the enjoyment of their guests in mind when furnishing these suites, and any request is simply not too big for them.The property is gated, the gardens lovely and the beach is wonderful. Fine sand, shallow,warm water that stretches for miles makes it hard to leave everyday when the sun goes down. Monglaralto has the hospital across the street, a pharmacy and some small restaurants, and the larger town of Montanita is just a quick cab ride(or 40 min walk up the beach), with a larger selection of eateries and bars.All the local people are friendly, the area is safe, and we would definitely recommend staying with Bob and Roxanne.Thank you both for sharing your slice of paradise with us.

Back again to Bob and Rox's

  • 5 of 5

After having a fabulous time at Bob and Rox's place ( lower suite) for a month in 2014 , we returned for another stay from Jan 3rd to Feb 6th this year. Once again, Bob and Rox proved to be the most hospitable of hosts , having found the perfect balance of respecting their guests' privacy while , at the same time, happily offering much appreciated assistance when needed! This year Bob and Rox , along with their housekeeper Agrapina , went well above and beyond the norm when my husband unexpectedly took ill. They arranged for excellent pharmacy and medical attention for my husband at the local hospital and they assisted with language services as well as regular visits there to ensure that everything was O.K. It is important to note the location of two pharmacies as well as an E.R./hospital facility right across the street from Oasis del Mar. It is the only hospital along this whole stretch of Coast.In terms of accessibility, my husband is awaiting a knee replacement so we choose the lower suite which does not involve the several steps that the upper suite does.We would continue to rave about this particular location and these particular hosts but we fear that this would lead to even more bookings and a very quick "no vacancy" message ! So if the rating scale allowed it, Bob and Rox would receive 110% from us.

We Loved this Place!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Ecuador for the first time, and stayed with Bob and Roxanne over the New Year's holiday. Being a new traveler to Ecuador, I immediately appreciated the quick response, and helpful support offered by the property owners, Bob and Roxanne. They were always available for various questions, and helped connect us with local transportation. Upon arriving, we were greeted warmly. The grounds of the property are gated, and once you step though the gate you know you made the right choice. The grounds leading to the house are lush, and well maintained. There are charming parrots in the yard, as well as iguanas. The suite is exactly as pictured, and is cozy, comfortable, and well equipped. You look straight out at the beautiful beach from your bed, and the large, covered patio allows you to be so close to the beach without worrying about over exposure to the sun. Two amazing amenities are the wifi, which worked great, and having a washer and dryer available. Its clear Bob and Roxanne care about their property and their guests. I plan to come back to Ecuador this year, and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Thanks so much for a great experience!

Piece of paradise in Ecuador!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Oasis Del Mar beach suit for 6 nights on the start of our honeymoon trip and could hardly force ourselves to leave! This place is literally paradise! It was the only place we saw in Montanita and Manglarlto where you can literally walk off your back porch, and be on the beach. The suit was so clean, with full kitchen, it has absolutely everything you need and lots more(blender, coffee maker, toaster, BBQ, washer and dryer, every dish, pot and pan). The view from the balcony is absolutely unreal, gorgeous sunsets every night. One of our favourite parts was the fact we were only a 30 minute walk down the beach from Montanita where you'll find great dining, a gorgeous walk and great way to keep active. We always felt safe.There was great surf right from the beach attached to the suit, making a great spot to improve your surfing and easy to have a break and a beer only paces from your home. The owners were super friendly and helpful. All and all Oasis Del Mar was absolutely perfect and we could not imagine or try to create a better spot, we would highly highly recommend anyone to stay that wants a great vacation that is totally worth the price. We loved it!

From Paradise to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Though we already live in the valley of longevity and eternal spring, Bob and Roxanne's studio apartment on the beach allowed us to teleport from paradise to paradise. Jorge picked us up at the airport and delivered us to our temporary home away from home. Roxanne and the sound of the waves met us on the grounds and ushered us to the apartment overlooking the full moon lit beach. Everything exceeded our expectations. Sleep came easily with soothing sound of the ocean.

The next morning we walked to Montanita along the beautiful clean sandy beach and later splashed around in the warm ocean waves.

The following morning we watched the fishermen haul in their nets. Locals came to take home some of the catch. We liked the way the technology free approach to life here. The small village the house is part of is quiet and safe.

One sunny morning we saw 6 iguanas on the property who quickly scooted up a palm tree when we got too close. There is also a talkative resident parrot who can mimic a cough that put a smile on our face.

Two hours away in Porta Lopez, we visited the Palo Santo factory and the fragrance in the air was divine.

For the adventurous I recommend the para gliding about 15 minutes by taxi from here.

There is so much to enjoy both at Bob & Roxanne's place and all along the coast that I will definitely be back soon.

We highly recommend Bob and Roxanne's place and we truly appreciate their generosity in share their piece of heaven with us.

A Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month with Bob and Rox in the Alta suite and it was perfect. We had just finished the High Inca trail trek in Peru and wanted to add some beach time in Ecuador to relax afterwards. Bob and Rox arranged for Jorge to pick us up at Guayaquil airport and to stop for groceries on our way to the coast. When we arrived Bob and Rox were there to greet us and had cold Cerveza in the fridge for our arrival. Our suite looked out over a gold sand beach directly on the ocean. In the morning we could prop ourselves up in bed and sip coffee and watch the ocean waves roll in while occasionally Pelicans would fly by skimming the surf. The Alta suite was well equipped and met all our needs. We chose to eat in most of the time and BBQ excellent fish ie mahi mahi and swordfish we bought in Montanita. Every day we went for long beach walks on virtually deserted beaches. The beaches are a beautiful gold sand and the water is warm and clear. Bob and Rox had us over to their suite with other guests for sundowners a couple of times which we enjoyed very much. When we were running low on beer, wine and groceries Bob and Rox picked up supplies for us when they were doing a big shop. Agripina, Isador and Fernando who live on the property also made our stay more comfortable. We especially enjoyed their parrot who held court every day on a tree in the beautiful garden. There were parakeets, gold finches and red finches and even iguanas who lived in the palm trees. Bob and Rox were perfect hosts and made us feel very much at home. We loved it!

Walk on the beach through bathtub warm water, while collecting a wide variety of pretty shells and rocks...

Take a lounge or beach chair out on the beach, set up an umbrella, sip a beverage, read a great book, and get a tan to make you neighbors jealous.
