About Randy Rezka

My wife and I are from Canada. We fell in love with Ecuador the first time we travelled here 5 years ago, this is when we purchased the villa. We lived in Costa Rica for 9 years before moving to Ecuador, and really enjoy the people and beach style living here in Ecuador.

Randy Rezka purchased this villa in 2012

Why Randy Rezka chose Don Pancho

It was love at first sight when we found this property. Just lucky to be at the right place at the right time as beach properties like this are rare. Originally built by an architect for himself, this home brings the hacienda feel of Ecuador to the beach. We are trying to maintain his original ideas , added with a modern touch to accentuate this prime location. Its like living at a beach resort.

What makes this villa unique

When you open the front gates and drive in you will get the feel that your in a different world. From the moment you walk in the front door, and see the ocean you will know that this place is made for entertaining and enjoying . The small town of Olon is very close with restaurants and grocery shopping, Many beach restaurants as well. World famous, Montanita is only 6-8 minutes away, for those who enjoy the nightlife it has to offer.

Great House Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very attentive, quick response and very helpful. The house and patio are spacious - the landscaping gorgeous. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The caretakers, Santos and Evelyn, were there to look after all our needs, without being intrusive. Nice people. Really, what more is there to say. Highly recommend.

Stunning Architectual Home on Georgeous Beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 greatly enjoyed our week stay at Casa Bougvillea. The home is as described, and is in overall great condition.

We had delicious local meals prepared by Jennifer for us each day for 2-3 meals, and our caretaker Santos was there to help us with any questions and assistance throughout our stay. In fact, there was an issue with the dryer not working during our stay, but Santos made sure our laundry was done offsite and returned it to us promptly a few times.

The pictures of the home don’t do it full justice, as it’s an amazingly beautiful home and property. One note is that it is winter in Ecuador in August, so do not expect to see the sun very often (1/2 of one day during our week) on the beach in Equador except for the Summertime there which is January-March. Not knowing this, we were caught a little off guard- but still thouroughly enjoyed our stay nonetheless.

If you love surfing, the waves behind the house are fantastic- and were strong every day. One morning we watched a whale free-jumping from our master bedroom patio... amazing!

We would definitely return to this great home again in the future, and the owner Randy was responsive and a pleasure to deal with on all fronts.

Amazing Location, Beautiful well kept home.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location & it's right on the beach. We were a party of 10 & never once did we feel like there wasn't enough space for all of us. The grounds & home are well maintained & cared for; the care taker & his wife are more than helpful, they helped us coordinate surfing lessons, hire a cook, transportation, and so much more, they truly made our stay even more enjoyable. The owner Randy was very responsive to questions we had and also very helpful with coordinating our transportation from the airport to the house. Overall this was an amazing vacation, both the kids & adults all enjoyed the house & all it had to offer. We all agreed that we would definitely not only recommend this house but also love to stay here again.

Even Better In Real Life!

  • 5 of 5

We were very fortunate to stay at Randy's amazing beach home in Las Nunez for 3 nights. The house was perfectly designed for our group of 4 parents and 4 kids ages 2-7. Between the pool, beach, grounds, and fun house layout, the kids had plenty to keep them occupied. For adults, it's even better as it feels like a mini-resort. The caretaker, Santos, and his family were on top of everything and we hired his wife to cook us breakfast, lunch and dinner during our stay. She also babysitted our sleeping children so we could go out in Montanita one night. If you have a car, Olon and Montanita are an easy 10-20 minutes away. Alternatively, we saw tons of taxis at all hours and the buses are supposed to be relatively easy. Also, the beach is amazing and very kid friendly. The water nearly comes up to the grounds of the house, the sand is fine and easy to walk on, and the beach stays shallow for quite a distance into the water. No lifeguards or likely anyone around.

One consideration for families with young children: 3 of the bedrooms are on the main floor of the house while the additional 2 bedrooms are in the lower level which you have to walk outside to get to (it's hard to describe). This is a very cool layout for families with older kids who can have their own area. But you'll have to think about how you arrange bedrooms with younger children.

This is it!

  • 5 of 5

This place seems too good to be true, however IT'S TRUE. Private location situated on the main road so it's a quick and inexpensive taxi to Olon ($2) and Montinita ($4), or jump on the bus ($0.50). The home is modern and spacious, positioned on a beautifully manicured lot. Further, if you're wondering, the property is nicer than the photos.

We traveled with 2 young girls and 4 other adults. Everyone felt safe and comfortable. The caretaker and family live on site in a seperate house. They do not speak english however are very patient and work hard to make sure we were understood. They take incredible care of the home and became part of our stay.

My husband and I have traveled the world with friends, staying at rental homes and this was one our best experiences. I will save you time, if this is in your budget... this is it!

A lovely spacious house with beautiful, relaxing views to the sea

  • 5 of 5

The house is very big, with 5 large bedrooms to cater for 5 couples with ease. The house opens up onto a lovely pool and jacuzzi area which is big enough to cope with 10 or more people without feeling crowded. This part of the house and the majority of the bedrooms look down onto the landscaped gardens leading out to the beach which is an amazing view and very relaxing at all times. You could happily spend all day enjoying this view. It was amazing and everyone loved it. Santos the caretaker was incredibly helpful for every detail that we ever needed and helped arrange for a cook to help prepare the meals at a reasonable price. Jennifer's cooking was delicious and we had some memorable meals. Santos also helped arrange a fishing trip in nearby Puerto Lopez which was a super treat. All of the amenities are first class and the architecture of the house is beautifully finished. The beds and furniture are all super comfortable and we really felt much more relaxed when we left. The holiday was a great success and we would all love to go back one day if circumstances allow. We would definitely recommend this house for any vacation for a large group!
