Huatulco Cottage Rental Photos and Description

One Bedroom House, Steps From The Beach

*******Please look carefully at the satellite photos before making a decision. The house is very remote so you must be self-sufficient and somewhat intrepid to want to stay here. A car would be advisable as the public transport is sporadic at best.

There are lizards and flying insects so if you don't feel comfortable with that then you mostly likely will not be happy here.*******

Located on Playa Mojon, approximately 20 min. by car from the town of La Crucecita, Huatulco, the house is nestled in a jungle wonderland of exotic birds and insects of every description. It is on the third lot back from the beach.

It would be perfect for dog owners, nature lovers, birders, surfers or anyone who craves peace and quiet.

I wanted to create an Epicurean garden-type atmosphere for those who want a place to rest, read, write, think and interact with nature.

It is completely solar-powered with hot water, ceiling fans, indoor and outdoor shower, gas stove, a safe and a roof-top deck. There is one Queen bed which sleeps two.

The house is perfect for a couple. Very small children could sleep on the couch cushions. Extra beds can be rented from Roman if you are bringing more than two adults or teenagers.

You can walk out the path to the beach and 20 steps away awaits an almost deserted stretch of sand with varying degrees of surf.

For serious surfers Barra de la Cruz is 10 km away.

For snorkeling there are calmer bays closer to La Crucecita.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any other requests as we will do our best to provide what you need.

Rates in Canadian $$: $75 per night. $500 per week. $1200 per month.

About Kathleen Leachman

I live and work in Vancouver but have spent most of my life as a free spirit, traveling the world.

Things have changed, bills need to be paid and I can't get away as much as I'd like now but having this house keeps my dreams of freedom alive.

Kathleen Leachman purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Kathleen Leachman chose Huatulco

Many years ago I did a road trip down the Baja in my VW Van, one of the best experiences in my life, and during my time of sleeping on the beach I vowed I would someday live out of doors.

I've always wanted to live in a palapa on the beach, interacting with nature and observing the rhythms and habits of the animals. Huatulco is lush, quiet and pristine, the perfect location to return to one's true nature.

This house is several steps up from a palapa but it's essentially outdoor living and there is an abundance of animal life.

What makes this cottage unique

This location is remote. You will be immersed in silence save for the calls of birds and insects in the evening.

I crave peace and quiet in which to think and read and my house is perfect for anyone who shares the same desire.

Romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and myself rented Kathleen"s cottage for 5 days for a romantic getaway and had a fantastic time. the cottage had everything we needed and Roman was there to make sure we were in need of nothing everyone we met at Playa Mojon made us feel so welcome and we felt like we have known them forever! the scenery is absolutely amazing if you are looking for a great beach with solitude look no further. The weather stayed in the high 20's the whole week, if you wanted to go out for a romantic evening La Crucecita is a short 20 minute drive from Playa Mojon. Upon leaving Roman made sure we had transportation back into La Crucecita. Kathaleen and Roman made sure that our trip was memorable and I would absolutely vacation there again. Thank you Kathaleen and Roman!

Birds, beach and you

  • 5 of 5
This house is everything in the description; tranquil , remote and perfect for intrepid travelers. Everyone in all aspects of the rental experience was responsive and friendly.
A perfect place to experience a beautiful almost unspoiled part of Mexico!! Get up early and watch the birds while practicing yoga on the roof.

a perfect place in the wild

  • 5 of 5
We came here for the last 3 nights of our honeymoon and were absolutely stoked with the place. it's the perfect place for a private, stress free getaway. We surf and were happy to see Playa Mojon had empty waves morning and evening, and only 2 mins walk away!
We stumbled across the house when checking out Playa Mojon for accomodation, the property manager Roman showed us through it and we knew it was just what we were after. He was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble.
I recognised it from VRBO, but hadn't booked it via the site as I thought it might be a bit insecure - no way is this place insecure, it has a big fence and solid locks, if you are worried about security don't be!
I would recommend to anyone (just remember there's no shops at the beach) and would go back in a heartbeat!

Beautiful Ocean Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My family spent two nights in this cottage, listening to the waves crash, eating breakfast upstairs on the deck with a view of the ocean, walking to the beach for sunset, surfing a beautiful break, admiring the birds, playing in the sand, boogie-boarding in the child-friendly waves. The cabin was clean and comfortable, the people we met were kind, and the chance for solitude was wonderful. We saw parrots, iguanas, frogs and butterflies. A short drive from the town of Crucecita, this cabin is a hidden paradise. We rented a car, but you could take a cab if needed.

Excellent experience-a comfortable home in beautiful surroundings with nature! Exceptional hosts!

  • 5 of 5
During March, 2012, we stayed for a week at Kathleen´s house in Playa Mojon outside of Huatulco. Our stay was one of the most wonderful and memorable experiences that we have had for a vacation. The house is just perfect.

First of all, it is a comfortable home in beautiful surroundings with nature. The beach, just like in the photo, is a long and wide stretch of clean sand where rarely another soul will cross your path. The solar powered home was an incredible experience ---everything runs just like in any other home---the large refrigerator, fans and lights as well as anything else you need to run or charge like laptops and cell phones. The solar water heater, now common in Mexico, produces scalding hot water and plenty of it. The home also has a very pleasant roof top patio, which is as large as the whole house, easily accessible by an inside stairway.

The local host is Roman. He treated us like honored guests--from greeting us at the airport, stopping by the grocery store on the way to Kathleen´s place and getting us settled in. He stopped by periodically to check in on us and introduced us to the neighbors. We got along so well that we got together for dinner in town during our stay. He is a serious and reliable gentleman who studied and lived in the U.S. and previously worked in the corporate world.

Enjoy your stay!
