Our house is located in Mazunte, in the state of Oaxaca on the Pacific Ocean on a beautiful secluded beach. Mermejita beach is approximately one mile in length protected and surrounded by a small mountain range. It is one of the nesting grounds for quelonian turtles as well as the rare leatherback turtle. The sounds of birds, waves, frogs and insects are the natural music of this house. Built by an artist in 2006 to create and re energize in this tropical jungle filled with life its high palm roof ceilings, cool clay tiled floors, wide verandas with inviting hammocks, a hot tub looking out onto the ocean, spectacular upper and lower terraces, are a true retreat from the fast paced world.
The kitchen and dining areas are at the heart of this house being a place where family and friends feel comfortable, a true social gathering place. These two rooms are at the front of the house, completely screened in for mosquitoes and with a gorgeous view to the ocean. You can be preparing a meal and still enjoy the ever changing colors of the water and sky. A big covered terrace with lounge chairs, hammocks and a big table are also close by for informal lunches and snacks. Besides the comforts of prepared meals at home there are many small restaurants available in and around Mazunte serving Mexican as well as international cuisine. We have written a small guest information booklet which includes our recommendations.
This house is simple and elegant, built of local materials and know how, 100 solar powered, sitting comfortably into the surrounding landscape. It is well adapted to the local tropical climate offering enough shade, inviting views and a constant cool breeze. It is a place that opens a sense of belonging to a much larger world. The pounding of the waves and the constant sound of the ocean, the stars in all their splendor in the nights sky, the light at sunrise on the water as well as the infinite colors of the sunset will make your stay really special.
