Treat yourself to total rest and relaxation at Casa Colibri (Humming Bird House) a lovely beach house situated at Costa Cumana one of Puerto Escondido's most exclusive communities. This brand new architecturally designed home is literally on the golden sand beach which stretches for kilometers in either direction. Built for comfort and relaxation, Casa Colibri is beautifully decorated and landscaped, yet is family friendly. Whether you want to listen to the ocean waves at night, relax in the pool, entertain under the large palapa in the spacious living/dining room areas, enjoy the sun in the poolside lounge chairs, or watch the sunset over the ocean, Casa Colibri and owners Penny & Joe welcome you to a vacation you won't forget!
Humming Bird House is great for families. The outdoor living space and dinning area allow you to soak up the heat whilst staying in the shade (and keeping an eye on your kids)! The kitchen is fully equipped and opens to the palapa so if you are cooking you can hang out with your friends & family. All bedrooms have Sealy pillow top mattresses and 100% cotton sheets. Whilst the bedrooms have air conditioning all of the rooms have ceilings fans - so you never get too hot! With two bedrooms in the main house (1 with a King, 1 with 2 Queen’s) and a third bedroom (Queen bed) in the adjoining casita (cottage), there is plenty of space to spread out. The media room can comfortably sleep two and there is a single bed that can be placed in any room as required!
Costa Cumana is an ecological beach resort just outside of Puerto Escondido.
Fronting directly on to the beach, Casa Colibri is the place to watch the waves, count the pelicans, enjoy the mantas that dance in the surf and 'ooh' and 'aah' at the dolphins and whales that make regular appearances. The beach is an active nesting area for turtles and if you are lucky you will get to see a 'nido' or turtle nursery as the baby turtle’s hatch and make their way to the sea.
Casa Colibri is a perfect rental for families with kids; girlfriends on 'retreat' or anyone who wants to escape the hustle & bustle of day-to-day life and soak up the sun, sleep in a hammock, sip margaritas in the pool or walk the beach at sunset. Our wonderful staff, Macri & David will take great care of you!
Whilst many people rarely leave the house, Casa Colibri is just 10 minutes from Zicatela beach and all that Puerto has to offer - surfing, deep sea fishing, bird watching, kayaking, and dolphin watching, sailing, and hiking.
Puerto is home to loads of good restaurants (everything from Japanese, Argentinean, Italian and of course Mexican) and oodles of fresh seafood. The local mercado is a lively authentic daily market with everything from food to flowers to artesania available; and the Adoquin and Zicatela offer up lots of shopping. Puerto also offers some great spa like services: manis and pedis, massages and yoga - all of which can be arranged to come to you!
Casa Colibri offers the perfect vacation mix – sunshine, sea, and sand in a luxurious, relaxing setting with all that Puerto has to offer just 10 minutes away. We invite you to come and discover this wonderful part of southern México. Welcome.
Penny & Joe have lived and worked all over the world. They are both educators and currently own and operate their own education business in Victoria, Canada. They first came to Puerto in 1995 and fell in love with the area. After searching high and low for a location to build their dream retirement home they found themselves back where they started in Puerto Escondido in 2008 and after buying land began building in 2010. It was really important to them to build a house that had enough space that visitors and renters could find privacy, but also wanted it to have the feeling of a home not a hotel. With elderly parents and grandchildren it had to be not only family friendly but easy to get around. The addition of the cottage (casita) means that you can share a family vacation with parents or in-laws without being on top of each other as the cottage has a kitchen and living room. Penny and Joe love escaping to the peace and quiet that Cumana offers, and particularly love being so close to nature – seeing turtles, dolphins, whales and rays up close on a regular basis is a real treat. They also love exploring the local area. Oaxaca is rich in culture and is the centre for artesania in Mexico. Equally important, particularly to Penny, is the food! She loves to cook and is enjoying exploring the markets and learning to cook with new ingredients. The abundance of fresh fruit, produce and seafood is a definite plus. The house is pet friendly – we wouldn’t dream of going anywhere without our two dogs Gordo and Dushi, who have come to love the beach and playing in the waves as much as we do. Penny & Joe both speak some Spanish and are working hard at improving their fluency. Their staff Macri and David who take care of the house and guest have been great at helping them with this goal
Puerto Escondido (Hidden Port) is a unique location on the Pacific Coast in that it is an authentic Mexican town where tourism has developed slowly and organically. There are no ‘all you can eat’ inclusive resorts or high rise hotels. It is the destination of folks who are interested in the environmental activities the area has to offer (bird watching, hiking, climbing, kayaking etc), the surfing - Puerto has one of the most famous surf beaches in the world, the culture and the food. The town has all the fun amenities and activities you would want on vacation, but at the same time it is a relaxed and restorative place. We found Puerto in 1995 and are so happy to have a home here. There is so much to do, so many beautiful beaches and just enough foreigners with out feeling like you live in an expat enclave. There is a great mix of North Americans, Europeans and folks from across South America. It is great place to re-charge your batteries, but if you are up for adventure there are lots of places to visit from Oaxaca City to Hutaulco to the villages around Pinotepa Nacional or the coffee plantations in the Sierra mountains that frame Puerto. Oaxacan's also have to be the nicest people in all of Mexico!
