OCEANVIEW HOME GATED COMMUNITY, NEAR MONTANITA, STEPS 2 BEACH

Punta Blanca House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This is a beautiful, recently-built (2011) 3-story, 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath house in a private, gated community. It is only a few steps to the gorgeous, wide Pacific beach that runs 10 miles (20 km) from Montanita in the south to San Jose in the north. Enjoy a fun-filled, relaxing Ecuadorian vacation right on a beautiful beach among friendly, peaceful people, with plenty of amenities--and all this at bargain rates!

Olon is a peaceful little town 3 km (1.5 miles) North of Montanita, 183 km (113 miles) from Guayaquil. It is a 2 ½-3 hour drive by car/private transport or 3 ½ hours on the comfortable, air-conditioned express bus ride from Guayaquil international airport. The express bus terminal is 1/2 mile from Guayaquil Int’l airport (Taxi from Airport to Bus Terminal costs approximately $4.00). Olón is a quiet fishing village surrounded by a lengthy beautiful beach. A superb Sanctuary built on top of a cliff overlooks the sea and surrounding areas. Along the beach of Olón are a number of outdoor cabanita-style “restaurants” that offer heaping plates of daily fresh seafood prepared to your request (along with generous amounts of rice and fried plantains) and large beer for less than $5.00. Or if you desire, wait for the night fishing boats to return with their haul of 9” prawns to grill on your own barbie.

You can always stay in and enjoy breakfast on the balcony, watch whales when they come through, and watch the sunset over dinner! Concierge service is provided by our care-taker who can arrange tours and various activities such as surfing lessons, kayaking, scuba diving, horseback riding, sport fishing, canopy tour and shopping trips.

There are two small convenient stores in Olon and two fresh produce huts offering a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. Fresh-caught fish is sold on the beach. Taxis are on call day and night, offering low rates. Olon also has an internet café 3 blocks from the house. In nearby Montanita there are two ATM's, a bank, numerous internet cafes and many excellent restaurants. We have a guide at the house with our top picks and recommendations for restaurants and bars!

Third story master suite bedroom opens onto a balcony with 2 hammocks. Queen-size bed. Private bathroom with shower. Second story has two bedrooms, both opening up to a balcony with 4 hammocks. Both have double beds and private bathroom with shower. Bottom floor has one bedroom with two double beds. Full bath downstairs with shower.

Second story has sitting area equipped with T.V. and DVD player.

Downstairs: Fully equipped kitchen. Large living room and additional sitting area with stereo system (CD/MP3 player docking station) and a variety of books and magazines to read.

Landscaped yard with built-in BBQ, tables/chairs and outside shower.

Enjoy a fun-filled, relaxing Ecuadorian vacation right on a beautiful Pacific beach among friendly, peaceful people, with plenty of amenities.

If you tire of the peace and quiet in Olón, head on over to Montañita for its world-renowned surf break (peaking in December through March), only a 2 minute taxi ride. Surfing lessons are available for those beginners who want to give it a go. This is a town that never sleeps, the party is always on, and the locals and visitors alike are friendly and laid-back. Get comfortable; sip a mojito at one of the many international cafés and people watch. A diverse crowd from all over the world visits this town; musicians play along the streets, jugglers show off, and nightly fire-dancers entertain the many enthusiastic on-lookers. Montanita also offers a number of comfortable high-speed internet locations for those wanting to stay connected.

Please call or email for further information or questions! or if you would like me to email you more pictures! Our beach house will serve as the perfect place for your getaway vacation!

My family & I vacationed in Olon, Ecaudor 3 years ago & stayed in a house in the same gated community as my house is now! I fell in love with this area & purchased a piece of property here before leaving from our vacation. I then flew back & forth for the past year & a half building this dream home! I wanted a place where my kids and grandkids can come every year to relax & enjoy!

Lanette Bumgardner purchased this house in 2009

The property is in a great, private location with breathtaking views of the ocean. It is quiet & the people of Olon are amazing! It is also only a 2 minute ride into the busy, night-life, surfing town of Montanita.

Private, gated community. Only a few steps from your front door to the white, sandy beach! Our house has all of the ammenities anyone could want or need while vacationing....................especially air conditioning!

The absolute perfect getaway for our large family!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Olon beach, having spent 25 years in Ecuador, I found this beach to be in the top two in the country! The beach house? Absolutely perfect! Only a block from the ocean and everything you could need and more made our stay very memorable. We have four kids and even brought along some friends and there was room for us all. The house is beautiful, very clean and comes furnished with everything, even down to sippy cups and pack-n-play for the baby and beach toys for the bigger kids.
Bobby was very kind to make sure we were settled in and comfortable, thanks!
We will definitely be back, no doubt!

Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5
This home has everything a family could want plus Bobby is a wonderful host who takes very good care of his guests. This home is perfectly situated away from the confines of the big city, but only a few minutes away from all the amenities such as shopping, para-sailing and zip lining. So close to the beach and the view from the balconies are spectacular. Anyone having doubts about visiting Ecuador should definitely rethink their decision. I cannot think of a more perfect home or place for a family to stay. My family, including the kids want to come back here soon since this has turned out to be one of our best family vacations.
We have experienced so much fun here it is hard to leave. Grab your family, rent this house and experience the vacation of a lifetime.

Fantastic Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation here will be considered as one of the best on memory. This property is well situated and has all the comforts of home. I would recommend this vacation home to anyone planning a family get together. Plenty of space and very comfortable. Our host lived nearby the property and went out of his way to ensure that all of our needs were met.

Beautiful house, easy transaction

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here in May 2013. The house is enormous and beautiful, and we truly enjoyed our stay. My favorite part was probably the hammocks on the porches, so many places to lay out and enjoy the sound and sight of the ocean. The house is in perfect shape, just gorgeous. While it is a little out of Montanita, it was very easy to get there, and we actually preferred being a little bit away from the bustle. A great find. Thank you!

February vacation

  • 5 of 5
We have visited Ecuador for several years now. Bobbys house is large and very nicely furnished. Bobby was always available for anything we needed. The view from the 3 story is great for ecuador sunsets. The house will accomadate a large family with private baths and balconies. The kitchen is very nice and great for cooking meals. We used the outdoor barbecue often and is very nice. Jardines Olon is a nice little community safe and friendly. The house is equiped with ac for bedrooms and makes those warm nights very comfortable. We enjoyed our month there and wished we could of stayed longer. This house is well above standard ecuadorian rentals. The beach is only a few steps away from long walks and local cuisine. Highly recommended for groups and families. It is clean and well kept.

Vacation Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the pleasure of being the first "vacation renters" and we had a wonderful experience! Our group consisted of teenagers, young adults, and middle age (Mom & Dad). Our boys and daughter loved the place. It has all the amenities needed....lots of room, private bedrooms, a/c in each room.....not to mention the deck! The boys enjoyed the deck each evening by playing cards and just hanging out on the hammocks. The location is excellent....walking distance to the beach. The view is spectacular and Olon is just a wonderful spot in Ecuador. You can relax at home and if the mood strikes....go into Montanita for a livelier evening.
The house is decorated perfectly for the beach and stocked with all the necesities needed. We grilled one evening and cooked breakfast daily. Having 2 refrigerators was great to stock up on drinks. Vicente, the local caretaker, is very helpful and will come over when called immediately. We had such a memorable time that we can't wait to return. I highly recommend staying at this spectacular home!
