One Bedroom House, Steps From The Beach

Remote, tranquil beach house.

Perfect for the intrepid traveller who seeks a quiet location in which to rest, relax and enjoy nature.

Beach-- Sand. Surf. Secluded. You can swim but it is not a gentle bay, there is a tide and waves.

The completely deserted Playa Majaqual is over the rocks. See photos.

Snorkeling beaches in town at Playa Entrega or San Augustin where there are palapa restaurants.

Security—the house is surrounded by an 8 ft fence. Windows are barred, a safe for documents.

Distances:

From the airport to the house--32 km, approx. 40 min. drive.

From La Crucecita town to house--17 km, approx. 15-20 min drive.

From the highway turn-off to the house--2.2 km on a graded road.

From turn-off to Barra de la Cruz surf beach—10km.

No tv or cell signal. Wifi is coming soon!

One Queen bed sleeps two adults. Futon and loveseat could sleep 1-2 small children.

Extra beds available for rental at $15 per day.

Dogs are welcome.

House is three lots back from beach, about 20 paces to shoreline. See satellite photos.

No Laundry. It must be taken to town. We charge for this according to length of stay and number of occupants.

A car is the best idea as it is difficult to get a taxi back to town; you will have to walk out to the highway to flag down sporadic cabs or public transport.

Cleaning and laundry to be paid in cash upon arrival:

$45 US cleaning fee

$20 US per week for laundry

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!

Although I have ticked off many of the activities in which one could partake that really isn't the point of this house.

You will want to stay here for rest, peace, quiet, contemplation and interaction with nature.
