|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Relax. Bask in the sun on the large decks, refresh in the shade, cool in the pool and ocean, stroll the beach, surf, kite surf, hike, jog on the beach, shop in open air markets, buy fresh fish on the dock. At night enjoy the ambiance of the pool lights and the large brick barbecue. Entertain at the large dining room table and and the long hardwood bar. Shorts and a T-shirt day and night. Or dress up a little and go to town for casual dining and small town night life. Relaxed and casual is the fashion. Forget your rain gear. This area has an average of only 6 days of rain each year and 300 days of sunshine. The weather in this area of Northern Peru is dry and tropical. In summer (from December to April) daytime temperatures can reach over 30°C. During autumn (April and May) and spring (October and November) it is a pleasant 24°C to 26°C. In winter (June to September) the days are also sunny and warm (24 - 26°) and nights are fresh (17 -18°) so you might need a light jacket in the evening.
My wife and I live on the west coast of Canada where winters are wet and chilly. It is no wonder that our Casa Ñuro is paradise for its dependable warm, dry, sunny weather year round. We built this home for casual relaxation. We have had our three grown children and their respective partners stay with us at Christmas and it is wonderful to all be together with room to spare.
Darryl Sinclair purchased this house in 2008
Because of its location directly on a beautiful beach, we have direct access to swimming in the ocean and beach walks. There are no dangerous currents to be concerned about and you can can walk for hours on miles of beach. Hustle and bustle are unknown terms here; it is a place for relaxing and refreshing. At the same time, there is lots to see and explore from the local town, five minutes away by road, to Cabo Blanco where Ernest Hemmingway fished for marlin. Buy fresh fish from the fishermen at the local pier or take surf lessons down the beach. Farther afield is the day trip to the mangroves of Tumbes.
We were the second house to start building on the beach and the first to be finished. Several more houses have been constructed but the beach maintains its 'hidden treasure' feeling.
Where to begin! We stayed for 3 nights. and this place met all our expectations. The house is ample and has enough rooms to accommodate at least 10 -12 guests. It has a great kitchen with a wrap around bar with bar stools for entertaining; great spot to catch up while cooking or preparing drinks. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils, enough to prepare a nice meal. The dinning is off the kitchen and big enough to accommodate a family of 10 or 12. The living room is big enough as well, although the sofas are a bit small, but who wants to stay inside when you have such amazing views and a nice swimming pool outside. There are plenty of lounges next to the swimming pool to enjoy the sun and just a quick walk and you can reach the seashore and the ocean. There is a small shower before you step out onto the beach to rinse off all the sand before coming back to the house. It would be better if you bring your own transportation and plenty of groceries if you like to prepare your own meals. There is a fridge and a freezer to store your goods. There is also a laundry room if you are staying here long enough. There is no need for a dryer since the sun will dry up everything so fast; so bring enough sun block. Darryl was great at responding to our questions and inquiries. Once you arrive to the entrance gate there is a 5 minute drive to the house on a road that is not paved and it's a bit rough. If you are not too much into cooking there are several places nearby to enjoy amazing seafood. El Ñuro is located a 5 - 10 minute drive south from the house. Los Organos is 15 - 20 min and Mancora 25 min (great restaurants) north of the house. We visited Cabo Blanco on a Tuesday and most restaurants were empty and with little to offer so I guess they get more provisions during the weekend. Just be aware that the drive to Cabo Blanco has a very steep and twisted road. Roger (caretaker) and Richard (gatekeeper) were very attentive and helpful. Roger responded to very question we had and even helped us set up the BBQ. To BBQ you just need to buy the charcoal; we drove to El Ñuro to buy some - PEN 1.00 for a small bag (we used 5 - 6 bags). We also decided to visit El Ñuro and try swimming with the turtles. You get to the pier, pay PEN 5.00 entrance fee and then PEN 10.00 per person. You get a 20 minute ride and 40 minutes swimming with loyts of turtles. All and all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and whenever possible we will be back.
Excellent for families. We went there with our three kids and it accommodated my mother and sister with her child, as well. The groundskeeper was extremely helpful (Snr. Morquencho). He was very accommodating, taking us into town and back home. Guiding us through the market area of Los Organos. The beach house itself was surrounded/protected by these beautiful hills which gave the feeling you were in California or Arizona. It was clean, comfortable and boasted the most amazing views, which we loved waking up to every morning. The pool was cleaned on a daily basis, and the garden and surrounding landscape was well maintained which added to our vacation experience. As you walk through the home into the pool deck area continue on the path through the garden you reach the gate which leads to your private beach, literally metres from the home. We saw no one around during our whole stay. The property was well protected. The kids loved running around on the beach collecting little red crabs and riding the waves. The water was very warm. Walking back there was an outdoor shower to clean off the salt water and sand, we basically had all the home comforts and amenities one would expect in a vacation home, including laundry. Los Organos was a ten-minute moto taxi ride away and if you felt more adventurous Mancora was a 20-minute ride from the home. In the opposite direction, you also have the small fishing town of Nuro (10-minute ride) which offers a "swimming with the turtles " attraction which our kids thoroughly enjoyed. All was very cost effective and well worth it. We can not say enough other than looking forward to our stay next year.
We spent nearly a week this beautiful house, as part of our honeymoon. We don't have anything negative to say, and too much that's positive to fit in here, but here's some of the main points:
- Perfect for privacy, we barely saw anyone else for the whole stay.
- The beach almost feels like it only belongs to the one villa. We enjoyed sunset strolls without seeing another soul- just lots of pelicans swooping across the waves!
- We wanted to cook for ourselves so the owner helpfully arranged for us to be taken into the local town and (as we don't speak Spanish) to have help shopping at the market, etc. As someone interested in food (and cooking) this was one of the highlights of our whole holiday. We picked up foods we wouldn't normally have known about, and probably paid a lot less! The ceviche we made for our first lunch was one of the freshest and tastiest we had all holiday.
- The pool was great- perfect to cool off after time in the sun.
- Although we were just one couple, it's a huge place and would be perfect for families or groups of couples.
- The owner's communication beforehand was perfect. Quick, helpful and friendly.
We spent 1 week with all the family here and is very nice and quiet
The house is very comfortable and spacious and is just meters away from the beach, in addition of having a pool a good garden, and all the amenities you want. A very safe place guarded 24 hours
The house is just 18 kms from Mancora where you Will find restaurants and shops.
Mariela the person who works in the house is very nice and Excellent Cook .
Jorge also works in the house and he clean and solve you all the problems
We enjoy our stay, and its very recomendable.
The only thing that we really miss, were fan in the bedrooms
We spent one week here and cannot say enough about it! Remote, but with a fantastic, beautiful and accommodating house right on the beach with a pool and all the amenities! Wonderful people were always available to help with any needs we had. Close to shopping and only a few minutes more to Mancora and all the restaurants you could want. The quiet was wonderful and the beach is incredible. You can be as active or inactive as you wish here. Great for a family or two to share and enjoy.
I spent one week with my family here and everything was absolutely great!
If you want to rest, walk along a pretty beach, eat amazingly, swim with turtles, have perfectly warm days and sleeping in a beautiful house, this is exactly the place you have to rent.
Very recommendable! We'll absolutely repeat it!
