Montanita House Rental Photos and Description

2BR + 2BA-Sleeps 6, Montanita#482641

This is a beautiful, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath house right on a 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!

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 100 meters from the house 6 days a week, offering a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. Fresh-caught fish is sold on the beach.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only

Tranquility Right on the Ocean --for Relaxing and Entertaining!!

  • 4 of 5
I took an amazing 9 month sabbatical in this house and couldn't have dreamed a better location! The house had everything I needed and was not too big and not too small. Private yet, right on the sand offering gorgeous views and ocean breezes. Big kitchen, which was a priority for me. big fenced yard offered security and room for my american furry friends ( dogs). Plenty of space for entertaining and cooking (big outside BBQ!) Super convenient location ( 5 min by bus or taxi) from Montanita yet far enough away to have peace be the focal point of living. Perfect 10 mile stretch of beach to bike on, walk down, surf at and star fish hunt! Whale watching is easy from the master bedroom deck! An amazing location-- amazing place, I will be back for sure!

We loved the month we spent in this house!

  • 5 of 5
We had an incredible time! We rented this house because I didn't want to be surrounded by other Americans/vacationers. The house sits on the beach in the middle of the small fishing village of Curia. The view of the beach from the balcony! The pounding surf! The beach was all sand and very gradually sloped. Popular surf spot for the locals. We watched, and I helped, local fishermen haul in their nets right in front of the house. Seafood was plentiful and delivered to the front gate on a daily basis if you want. Fruit/vegetable vendors stopped on nearby streets almost daily. We only had to go into Olon, riding the jungle bus ($.40 each way), when we needed other supplies like butter so very seldom. Everything was available locally.
The neighbors were very friendly, helpful. I speak only rudimentary Spanish, theirs is Latin based, yet was able to get the point across with no problems. Neighbors directly behind us even provided us with the freshest chicken you could imagine. All fruits and vegetable were tree ripened and so tasty.
The house itself was just as depicted in the pictures. Clean, comfortable, everything worked. Outside tables/chairs were weather beaten by the sun and the white plastic chairs on the balcony were cracked. Mosquito nets/fans were provided. I find it hard to imagine how 6-8 people could find it comfortable. A queen bed in the front bedroom and two twins in the second, so really suitable for a couple and two children. We had planned to travel with 1-2 other couples and were glad they didn't go. Would not have worked...
The caretaker, Pablo, I cannot write enough about. Amazing individual, and an immense help. Knowledgeable about local cultures, spent two days with us basically showing us the ropes. Everybody knows Pablo. A very gregarious individual and he became a close friend over the month we spent there.
I would recommend this rental to everybody. Totally laid back, relaxing atmosphere.
Excellent location, peaceful and beautiful. Anything you need, food or otherwise, is available nearby or they will go out of their way to procure it for you. Visit the local Mantililla National Park for a history lesson and a gorgeous, white sand secluded beach. We enjoyed an amazing month in Curia, Ecuador and will revisit in the near future. One piece of advice, bring seasonings. The Ecuadorians are fond of bland food and spices are not readily available.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you two had a great time, and I hope that you will return in the future for another stay. I agree with your assessment that the house is better suited for four people, with six being the maximum. In the past I have rented out the studio apartment in the back of the house along with the house which made it more comfortable for more people. I will edit the listing stating four to six people.

Relaxing and Enjoyable Experience

  • 5 of 5
Hello All,
I just got back from a very enjoyable time staying at the house advertised above. While staying at the house I went running on the beach every day, cooked awesome food in the house's well-furnished kitchen, slept in a very comfortable bed, watched movies from the house's video collection on a 40" TV, and used the house WIFI for internet connectivity.

The house's owner, Matt, is very friendly and helpful, along with Todd, the house manager. Also, the next door neighbors are on call to help out with just about anything you need.

The neighborhood where the house is located is really low-key and the neighbors were friendly and helpful to me with directions and getting to know my family. I felt great going out at night walking around close to where we were staying... it seems like a very safe little community.

While at the house, I went whale watching and snorkeling about 30 minutes N of where we were staying. We also went to Montanita to party for one night and that was really cool (the party doesn't start till 12 and doesn't end till 6 am. Most days we just hung out on the beach and swam, and then walked down the beach 20 minutes to Olon to eat out at one of the restaurants. Prices are pretty good in Olon since it is still 5 minutes away from Montanita.

Anyway, me and my family have no complaints after 7 days of holiday at La Casita Blanca. I'm planning on using this house next year if it is available when I am planning our next trip to Ecuador. This is definitely way better than staying in Montanita since it is a more relaxed setting, cheaper and still very close to all the fun stuff you want to do.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice review Joel.
I'm glad you and your family had a great time. We are committed to ensuring a wonderful time for all of our guests. This house is located in a perfect location right on the beautiful beach, close enough to all the activity, yet far enough away to be peaceful and relaxing. I'm glad that you met some of the neighbors. They are very nice people, and are always eager to help out in any way they can. I hope that you and your family do return next year for another visit.
