Caitlin McVarish purchased this House in 2003
Why Caitlin McVarish chose Hidalgo
This property is built with integrity and an eye for design. The street is a quiet lane and is perfectly located for walking to beaches and restaurants. There is a beautiful stone path which makes a great morning walk to the Playa Principal where you can buy fish from boats just coming in. One trip here and Caitlin was hooked on the unspoiled coast and nice people in this part of Mexico. And, the dependable weather! Also, this destination is perfect coupled with a trip to the cultural city of Oaxaca which is a feast for the eyes, and all senses with amazing food and art.
What makes this House unique
The palapa with the ocean view is a perfect place to enjoy a cocktail at sunset!

WONDERFUL HOME + NEIGHBORHOOD!
Great responsiveness and friendly helpfulness from owner, manager, house and garden people for this super-clean, comfortable casa with lovely architectural and traditional features. Loved the red tile floors, domed brick ceilings with natural light, hummingbirds in the bougainvillea. Well provisioned and well maintained. Good new air conditioners in living area and master, overhead fan only in second bedroom, excellent window screens. Having two bathrooms, a washing machine, and safe parking really made us feel we had uncrowded convenience. We loved the rooftop palapa with ocean views and the pool, those neighbors whom we met, and the easy walk to the beach. (Go down through town.) The part of town above the Costera highway Is local and small and easy by car or the many inexpensive taxis, with fun clean outdoor markets and artisans’ shops and a well stocked grocery. Exceptional birding on the lagoon - we saw 62 species in one day by panga! - and the turtle protection - as well as surf - are OUTSTANDING! Gina at the town’s tourist kiosk will connect you to experiences like these and adds history and ecology with lots of good cheer. You will love her!
We felt we had the best of everything in Puerto Escondido while staying in this great home..
Thanks so much Jackie! We are happy you enjoyed our place and got to know the delights of Puerto Escondido!
Pretty casita with wonderful palapa
The casita was very pretty and full of local style with everything we needed. It is very clean and well maintained. Maria was really helpful, meeting us at the bus station and booking our taxi for our morning departure. But the hilight is that palapa!! We spent hours relaxing, eating and just enjoying the sea views from there.
Thank You, Janet. We hope you will come back again soon!
Perfecto!! A special casita in a perfect location.
Loved Caitlin's home and location. Walking distance to 4 amazing beaches, to town and the market, to La Punta, to Spanish class (recommend Calli in Rinconada) and yoga, not to mention great restaurants. Keep in mind, lots of steps down to the beach if you have knee issues. As two single women (65 and 50) we felt safe in this area, walking most places. We found the casita to be true to its photos and description, tastefully decorated, the highlight being the upstairs open palapa for spectacular views of sunrises and sunsets. Caitlin and Maria are wonderful, responsive hosts, we had a couple of unforeseen issues upon arrival which were immediately taken care of. We were welcomed by Maria at the airport and with beer in the refrig! She was available throughout our stay to help out with any issue. I highly recommend Caitlin's home and hope to return next year. Don't miss this special casita!
Very comfortable and attractive place with all necessary amenities on a quiet street.
Loved the domed brick ceilings and the palapa upstairs was a wonderful retreat in the mornings and evenings for beautiful sunrises and sunsets and delightful breezes and sea views. The location is great— short walk to Manzanillo beach and the Andador—a path along the rocks to Playa Principal ( needs some repairs so a bit of a scramble in 2 places but doable—and even if you don’t make it all the way it’s still a very scenic walk). We were very comfortable here. Maria was very helpful and responsive and even picked us up at the airport and brought us to the house. Caitlin was also very pleasant, accommodating, and easy to work with. Would definitely rent this property again. And Puerto is great. Lots to do, great market, good restaurants.
