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.

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.
