Overview

Montanita House Rental Photos and Description

2BR + 2BA-Sleeps 6, or 3 BR + 3 BA- Sleeps 8, Montanita#482641

This is a beautiful, freshly renovated (Oct 2014), 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath house (or add the Studio for 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath option) right on a gorgeous, wide Pacific beach moments away from the action of Montanita. 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!

Curia is a peaceful little town 2 km (1mi.) north of Olon, 5 km, (3 mi.) north of Montanita, 184 km (114 miles) from Guayaquil. It is a 2.5 hour drive by car or by convenient, comfortable express bus ride from Guayaquil and the Int'l airport.

Montanita is famous for its great surfing beach, fun nightlife with excellent restaurants, bars and shopping. Good beach breaks, surfing, and surfing lessons can also be enjoyed right in front of the house! The beach is gently sloping, so that close-in surf is gentle, safe for children. Huge upstairs deck is perfect for dining and parties, providing long views up and down the beach. Enjoy breakfast on the balcony, watch whales when they come through, and watch the sunset over dinner! There are two small convenience stores in Curia and two fresh produce trucks that park 10 meters (35 feet) from the house 6 days a week, offering a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. Fresh-caught fish is sold on the beach. There is also a very good restaurant and little bar nearby on the beach that serves typical Ecuadorian foods, fresh fruit smoothies, cocktails, etc. Perfect for those lazy beach days.

Affordable and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation of 5 days at Casa Blanca. The house was right on the beach and showed exactly like the pictures shown. It was bright, clean and well kept. To wake up to the ocean right outside our door was blissful! There is a bar/restaurant right beside the house where we would get our morning breakfast and have smoothies/cocktails throughout the day while hanging out at the beach. For a selection of restaurants, Olon beach is about a 15-30 min. walk away, and party town Montanita less than a 5 min ride by taxi. The property manager Barbara was extremely helpful and friendly, and quickly answered any questions we had and/or offered suggestions about what to do, where to go (still have to visit that brewing company when we're in town again) etc. She even let us use her boogie boards while we were there! Now, for some recommendations - I would suggest that some sand toys/beach toys/boogie boards be available for use by renters, especially those with children, as to bring or buy these items would be an inconvenience (limited luggage space). Also, air conditioning available throughout the home and not just in the master bedroom is advisable, especially for those of us who are used to our modern conveniences back home. Otherwise, it was a lovely and affordable vacation space, and I'm already missing eating the seafood/ceviche that was literally available and prepared right outside our door! My hubby even got to try surfing again - thanks for everything Barb!

Great Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 5 days at this house with her Ecuadorian family. It was an excellent vacation. We have been to the beach many times before so for us it was a little less about tourism and more about relaxing and getting away from a busy work life. This fit the bill. Every morning you could go out the door and jog in either direction along what must have been 10 miles of pristine beach. It is one of the prettier spots along the coast. There is a decent break out the front door but not nice enough to have it overrun with surfers. In my experience only Ayampe is just as clean and tranquil. There was a little resto-bar next to the house that was perfect for ceviche, arroz marinero, and an evening cocktail. The owners of the restaurant were super friendly and respectful of the neighboring houses. It was a great little addition that help made the vacation special. The house was perfect. During the mid-day hours there was enough shade in the yard to get a little nap in the hammocks. At night, you could watch the sunset from the balcony. The house was fully stocked with home necessities. Barb and Rob were great, gave us a 15 minute tour upon arrival, and we were all set for the week. They were also there throughout the week if we needed anything and lived nearby for convenience. For our situation and travel needs, we couldn't have picked a better spot. Special house in a special location!

A Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Review Curia Beach House Casa Blanca

All of us who lived in Casa Blanca the month of February 2015 have wonderful memories of a perfect beach, warm sea, lovely house, delicious fish-fruit-vegetables.

The oldest of us had troubles with the heat & humidity but none of the others complained. Only clothes one needs are 2 pairs of shorts, 3 tops, bathing suit, flip flops and PJs (sun screen and hat). The washer/dryer work well; the kitchen is easy; the plumbing reliable (beautiful tile bathrooms). It’s easy to take the $.25 bus for groceries or into Montanito for lunch/souvenirs. The next door restaurant-bar has good food and the neighbor Marta will cook and clean for small fee. Best of all are the managers, Rob and Barb, Americans who have lived there 4 years – nice safe feeling; in fact never did we feel not safe walking the beach or the street. Yes, it was a dream vacation.

Great host, great place

  • 5 of 5

We got there late and our hosts Barb and Robert were waiting to make sure everything was OK. The house is more than I expected. It was like having our own beach. A great little tikibar next door served great food and drinks at great prices. Are rental car broke down the first night there and Barb went out of her way to assist, even to where she wanted to help push the car to a safe location. We had a great time and would recommend this to anyone thinking on staying here.
