About the property
- Condo1200 sqft
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay4 - 7 nights
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Property has full kitchen with all amenities, lounge and dining area with balcony and sea view, 2 full size bedrooms (main with balcony and sea view), 2 full bathrooms (one is en-suite), entrance hall area, and utility room with washer etc. Main entrance is at ground level (There are 2 or 3 steps up to the front door). Dedicated wifi connection. The condo complex has 21 other units, 2 pools (one with ocean view), beautiful gardens and secure entrance with 24 hour security. Car hire is available locally but is not really necessary, cheap taxis abound and the town center and 2 beaches are a short walk away, Manzanillo beach is the closest at approx 7 minutes walk. The principal and Zicatela beaches can also be accessed by a cliff walkway but it has lots of steps & big waves! I have a local agent who lives on site to help out with any issues, and she can arrange collection from the airport if needed
Also close by is a local market to buy fresh fish, veg, fruit, tortillas, spices and all other known Mexican foodstuffs in addition to handcrafts. For the authentic experience you can also buy fresh fish straight off the boats at the beach, or arrange a trip to catch your own. Puerto is renowned for world class fishing (Dorado, Tuna, Swordfish, Sailfish, etc), along with the world class surfing at Zicatela beach.
For safe swimming there are secluded coves for swimming, snorkeling or just relaxing under a palapa with a drink. At night one can eat out along Zicatela or Rinconada, catch the sunsets there, or have your own private sundowners on the balcony before sleeping to the sound of the sea.
Note that at time of writing (March 2018) there is some construction work ongoing on the next door plot. There may be construction noise for the near future and the construction may partially restrict the view to the east towards Zicatela, but not out to sea, I will be visiting in July 2018 so should have better information then. I believe the photos included here are still representative of the views.
Please also note that the condominium regulations PROHIBIT rentals to families with kids under 14 so you can view that as a bonus or a disadvantage! Great activities for kids over 14 though. Regulations also prohibit rentals to groups of more than 4 persons per unit.
Please note the rates specify a minimum rental of 30 days for the winter period, but it's always worth inquiring if you are interested in a shorter period, especially if the calendar shows a short available slot. Also note that summer rates are always less than winter rates. Please enquire for rates during summer time as they may be less than quoted here.

Jeremy purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Jeremy chose Hidalgo
Puerto Escondido is relatively unspoilt and has NO major chain hotel or tourist infrastructure. The sea views are wonderful and one can get a taste of the real Mexico, plus have access to the state of Oaxaca with its incredible pre-colonial & colonial sites and stunning landscapes and cuisine. There is a lot of informal tourism with local hotels, rental properties and activities, and the place is popular with Mexicans who want to eat good food and get away from it all. Quality restaurants are springing up all the time too. Maybe one day the world of commercial tourism will catch up and the condo will be worth a fortune, or maybe it'll just stay as it is, either way we win.
What makes this Condo unique
Peace and tranquility, great food, local wildlife. Access to other parts of the Pacific coast and Oaxaca State. Excellent surfing, beautiful beaches, sea fishing. unspoilt. No major chain hotels.

Charming Getaway with Spectacular View
My husband and I were very comfortable in this cozy and spacious 2 bedroom unit. It was fully equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay in this beautiful place. Good food, beaches and nightlife were a convenient cab ride away!
Thank you Cristina, we're delighted you enjoyed it. Hope to see you back again one day.
Beautiful view interrupted by CONSTRUCTION
Eglantina is beautiful with a stunning view and well kept grounds, BUT
during our one month stay we had construction directly next door from 0700-1630 Monday- Friday and Saturday till 1200hrs. They are building a two phase condo complex directly to the left of Eglantina. They were so close to us we could greet the workers from our balcony. We were never able to sit on our balcony during the day. The construction was consistent jackhammers and other very loud equipment. Not being able to use the balcony until the evening was very disappointing. This construction was going on last year and will continue for the next year or more. Owners of another unit informed us that last winter the construction was even louder and tenants left early. We emailed Jeremy to inform him of this construction and the effect it had on our stay at his condo. He had informed me that he was not aware of this construction, we find this hard to believe. We requested fair compensation for the disruption. Jeremy offered us a less than 4% discount on our one month stay. This was $85. This was not exceptable. We would like others to be aware that the construction will effect your holiday if you choose to stay. It will be ongoing for at least another year.
I was very sorry to hear of the issues that you had during your stay, and that it was not up to your expectations.
Regarding the construction yes we did have a period last year when it was disruptive but since then it had calmed down or stopped for long periods. The previous tenant stayed a month and left one day before your arrival, and had no issues whatsoever - she left a 5 start review and booked again for next year. That is why I said I was unaware of construction problems or noise.
You did inform me of the noise and disruption 5 days before your departure date and so on that basis I offered you the last night free of charge as a goodwill gesture, but I did not receive a response.
Again I can only apologize for the disturbance and I have updated the vrbo page with a comment that there will be construction next door until farther notice. I do thank you for your review and am happy that you could at least enjoy and appreciate the view and the grounds in the evening time.
Great place just as advertised in a great area!
This condo is great, fully equipped with everything you need. Very clean and comfortable. The complex is beautiful and well kept. Both pools are great with a fantastic view from the front one.......as well as from the balcony. It is a great place for morning coffee watching the sunrise, which is spectacular. Lisette who manages this property is amazing and was very patient with all our questions.
Everything you need is within walking distance. You can call a taxi right from the complex........they all know where Eglantina is. The whale and dolphin tour with Israel is a must. In the Rinconada area (walking distance of about 10-15 minutes) there are many great restaurants that are very inexpensive. Some of our favourites were Cafecita, Paris, Luna Rosa, and La Salsa.
Would definitely recommend this property to anyone and we are going back next year.........can’t wait!
Thanks for the comprehensive review, I can't wait to get back there myself now!
Great location, Exceptional View
The other reviews are accurate. The view from the condo and the pool is extraordinary. The property is very well maintained. The location is perfect. Short walk or cab ride (25-30 pesos) to anywhere. First time visiting Puerto Escondido and will definitely be back. Great beaches and lots of fresh seafood! Lisette was very helpful and always available in person or by email.
Glad you enjoyed it and thank you for taking time to respond
superb views, great location, lovely pools and garden
Place was great, exactly as advertised with great views from main bedroom and lounge, can even lie in bed and watch the view. At night there are fishermen to watch too. Condo gardens are very nicely kept and the infinity pool at front is wonderful. Location great for Manzanillo beach and anywhere else you want to go. Taxis can be called from right at the front door. Having Lisette (the owners agent) on hand there was a definite plus as she got us sorted out for anything we needed and I would definitely return, right now if I had the chance!
fantastic, glad you enjoyed it.
exelente lugar mucho mejor de lo que esperaba un lugar super exclucivo las habitaciones amplias y de buen gusto la estancia te hace sentir como en casa y la vista es de primer nivel sus albercas limpias y de buen gusto una vista de ensueno a la bahia el tener todos los servicios incluidos labadora secadora entre otras cosas te da una seguridad de poder pasar no una semana sino meses y el costo de arrendamiento muy por debajo de lo que vale lo recomiendo ampliamente
great you enjoyed it - fantastic
beach, surfing, sunset watching, restaurants, bars and cafes. Condo includes private pools and beautiful gardens. It is in a residential part of Puerto and so is quiet at night. Nightlife is a short taxi ride away if needed, likewise excellent 'super-che' supermarket with excellent wine selection and all normal food supplies. Can arrange collection from airport if needed.
