Located in a privileged place for its location and quiet, the more attractive is that at less than 5 minutes you have a various number of activities.

Family compound

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautifully landscaped property with a main house on ocean and a few casitas. This casita is large and could sleep many. It has a quirky design with a tree in the main bedroom and an RV inspired dining and living area. The bed is very firm! The caretakers live in unit under this casita and sound carries unfortunately. The Jacuzzi/plunge pool was out of service the entire week and our fridge did not work though it was fixed in a day or 2. The ac in bedroom was great but unit in main area was not very cold. After our first couple of days, 5 cars full of people (?owners and their staff) arrived with many kids under age 10 and after that we felt awkward being there and it felt like we were intruders at a family gathering. Access to the beach is basically their patio area. The beach is great for walking when tide is out and sea comes up to stairs when tide is in. The buses will stop right at gate which is nice but there are no good local grocery stores. There are guys on motor who sell fish on beach we enjoyed. There isn't much to do in the area and 1 week was too long for us.

Quiet location near Montanita

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I enjoyed our short stay here, just outside San Jose. The accommodation was very comfortable and Victor, who lives in an adjacent property, was on hand to help us with any questions or requests. The balcony looks out over a communal garden sheltered by trees. At the bottom of the garden is the long, sandy beach with hardly anybody on it - suitable for strong swimmers. Montanita has a good choice of restaurants, bars and some shops - you will need to get there by car, bus or taxi as it is too far to walk. We organised a day trip to Isla de la Plata which we would recommend - the boat sails from Puerto Lopez and we saw whales and dolphins on the way.

Paradise is the only word to describe this home.

  • 5 of 5

Paradise awaits! Mario and his team have absolutely thought of every detail to make your stay unforgettable. Although the house is not in the sand it is just steps from the sand and waves. The staff makes every attempt to make certain that your stay is all you have dreamt it would be.

Our stay was for two weeks. We arrived to the coast a week ahead of when we had originally planed. We stayed at a small rustic resort a short walk down the beach in the town of San Jose which we absolutely loved. Try the baker on the corner his chocolate coconut cakes are to die for as well as any other items he has for sale. We did contact Mario who offered to allow us to check in early free of charge! How often does that happen? Mario went out of his way to make sure we had everything we could possibly want or need. We plan to come back as soon as we can. We love Ecuador, the people, the land, the sea, but most of all the kindness of the Ecuadorian people. We spent 6 weeks in Ecuador and ended our trip with our stay at this property. If you are considering staying here do it you will not regret it. Thank you Mario & staff you made our trip absolutely amazing. We can not mention enough kind words to express the welcoming feeling you folks provided us. True hospitality at its best.

Beautiful beach location

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment is definitely 5 star! The beach is amazing with miles of quiet sand to walk and warm water to swim. Our only complaint was that there was very little comfortable seating in the apartment or on the balcony. When we asked they did bring us more comfortable chairs for the balcony. We had a wonderful week and would love to come back.

Casa muy confortable a metros de la playa

  • 5 of 5

Una casa bien equipada y confortable, dentro del amplio parque de la casa principal de los dueños. Buen diseño y buen gusto. Sus dueños un encanto de personas, amables y generosos. Los caseros, muy amables, viven dentro del contorno de la propiedad, y tienen buena disposición para resolver las inquietudes que se presentan. Tiene salida directa a la playa y a un mar cálido y sereno. Es aconsejable estar con auto para poder moverse, ya que los lugares para aprovisionarse están alejados.

Multiple visits!

  • 5 of 5

Canadian friends and I have stayed at this lovely home on its beautiful beach front estate several times during the past couple of years, and have recommended it to many friends, who've enjoyed it as well. There are actually FOUR houses on this large, lush estate...each one of them charming and very well equipped. The property is breath taking, thanks to Martha's expert gardening skills and Mario's obviously superlative architectural talents. The beach front is secluded and quiet...wonderful to come home to after enjoying the busy night life offered in Montanita. Mario and his family are always so welcoming and helpful, and they employ very loyal staff who are always available for anything we need. This is our "home away from home" whenever we travel to Ecuador's beautiful coast along the Ruta del Sol. We'll be back!
