Was so relaxing!
I stayed here with my daughter and my granddaughter for a week. The house is in an authentic rural area right ON the beach. The nearby caretaker could not have been nicer and the property manager Niesy was so very helpful. On the first day she went driving around the area with my daughter and showed her all of the best places to visit. She showed my daughter where to find a local fisherman‘s market that we never would have found on our own.
There is a swimming pool nearby with a very good restaurant and we enjoyed several swims there - we had the pool to ourselves :)
The small village of Pochote is walking distance to the best and freshest ceviche we ever had.
We spent hours in the hammocks and at the beach. Great views. Warm water. Beautiful sunsets!
We felt very safe here. Cant wait to book our next vacation at this same home.
Thank you, Angie!
I am glad you had a nice time. Thank you for your feedback.I hope this review inspires others to go off the beaten path!
Beautiful off the beaten path beach house!!
My husband and I loved this little house. We wanted a place on the beach away from tourist areas and this house was perfect!! We started and ended our day in the hammocks. We spent almost every day reading on the beach and swimming in the bay.
I think some beach chairs would have been great but we "toughed" it out with some beach towels.
The AC cools the house in the evenings. The dark wood and curtains make it feel cave-like which was great for sleeping.
We will be back!
Silent nights sleep
Very secluded. The outside shower was great. Took a dip in the ocean every morning then showered out side with soap, shampoo and conditioner in the nice warm air. Totally relaxing. The memory foam mattress was sure nice too. I have seen all the advertisements but never slept on one.
Nice house but terrible location
BARKING DOGS - the next door neighbor has 9 dogs. They bark 24/7. If you like to be woken up 5 or 6 times a night, this is your place! The 1st night the neighbor came over to say hello and we instantly had 9 dogs on our porch. Later that night one jumped the fence and knocked some dishes off the outside table, scared us to death. The house is really fun, but being totally un-insulated, made the dogs sound like they were barking in the same room. We left 2 days early, just so we could get a full night sleep. Renter beware!
Just so reader know, we built a fence around the property and also another gate to get up to the deck so if the both of the gates are closed, dogs will stay out. The location of the house is near a rural community but we are located on the beach.
Nice basic beach house
The property care takers were really friendly and helpful. The house is well equipped and was clean. The beach is really nice and great for swimming, it is very calm waters in Pochote. You have neighbors on either side, but they are friendly. The house does have a few bugs and lizards inside ( pretty normal for the area ) and the AC is not very effective with the house not being insulated. For the price this place was a great value and we will stay there again!
Beautiful view, but serious plumbing problems
So let me start with this- the view is absolutely incredible. It was completely breath-taking.... And the hammocks out front really make things that much better! The locals were friendly and even the man next door- while a bit obnoxious- was friendly!
Now, the house itself is made out of wood and beautiful as well. Unfortunately when we showed up, the 2nd floor bathroom flooded and it SOAKED the 1st floor. The person that let us in obviously didn't know and he didn't speak English anyway.
Also, the air conditioning leaks A LOT of water. Luckily we only used it at night so it wasn't a huge inconvenience.
On a plus- there is WIFI!
All of those issues have been dealt with. Also, so the public knows, we have an English speaking property manager there who deals with our customers and she lives nearby. The person who does our lawn and maintenance does not. Our property manager usually is there to welcome people but she must have had him there on the day you arrived. I am sorry that happened while you were there.
