We wanted to visit the coast of Ecuador and this house was the perfect place. We loved the jacuzzi overlooking the ocean. Best of all we loved that you could step off the porch directly into the ocean or the beach (depending on the tide). From the beach you can walk 20min or so along the beach to one of 2 different small towns and enjoy the local flair. We also grabbed a bus to Montañita to have some coctails and sea food, when we had our fill of the party atmosphere we took a very short taxi ride back to our relaxing stay. We loved the variety the location of this house provided, not to mention the staff was extremely helpful and so nice!
