Pack your bags and treat yourself to total rest and relaxation at Casa Colibri (Humming Bird House) a lovely beach house situated at Costa Cumana one of Puerto Escondido's most exclusive communities.
This lovely architecturally designed home is literally on the golden sand beach which stretches for kilometers in either direction. Built for comfort and relaxation, Casa Colibri is beautifully decorated and landscaped, yet is family friendly. Call us today, its as simple as that!
Costa Cumana is an ecological beach resort just outside of Puerto Escondido.
Fronting directly on to the beach, Casa Colibri is the place to watch the waves, count the pelicans, enjoy the mantas that dance in the surf and 'ooh' and 'aah' at the dolphins and whales that make regular appearances. The beach is an active nesting area for turtles and if you are lucky you will get to see a 'nido' or turtle nursery as the baby turtle’s hatch and make their way to the sea.
Casa Colibri is a perfect rental for families with kids; girlfriends on 'retreat' or anyone who wants to escape the hustle & bustle of day-to-day life and soak up the sun, sleep in a hammock, sip margaritas in the pool or walk the beach at sunset. Our wonderful staff, Pablo, Juana and Mauricio will take great care of you!
Humming Bird House is great for families. The outdoor living space and dinning area allow you to soak up the heat whilst staying in the shade (and keeping an eye on your kids)! The kitchen is fully equipped and opens to the palapa so if you are cooking you can hang out with your friends & family. Our beautiful palapa is the heart of the home providing indoor/outdoor living. With a constant light breeze from the ocean, and two overhead fans this is a delightful space. Lounge on the comfy bancos, hang out in the hammock swing, watch the waves and count the dolphins!
The house comes with a large pool facing the beach, with a lovely shallow section perfect to hang out with babies and young children
The master bedroom is light and airy and sophisticated featuring a King-sized bed, lounge area and gorgeous onyx lighting . With an en-suite bathroom, plenty of closet space and a lovely private patio- which is perfect for morning coffee - this space is bound to please. Wake to the morning sun and sleep to the sound of the ocean. Patio doors open directly on to the ocean at the front and and on to the pool to the right.
The guest bedroom features two queen sized beds, a large closet and a safe. With its own private patio, and a great view of the beach, this is a relaxing space for your family or friends. With both air-conditioning and an overhead fan it is wonderfully cool on the those hot Mexican nights. The guest bathroom is cool and calming featuring plenty of cotton towels, and all the amenities you would expect.
The media or TV room is a multi-purpose space. By day it is a work space or TV room. There is a flat screen TV, Sky satellite, internet, DVD player, IPod Dock and space for two computers. With double doors at both ends, during the day you can open it up and make it part of the outdoors. At night it converts to another bedroom comfortably sleeping two adults and one child. With air-conditioning and an overhead fan this is a cool comfortable space at night.
All bedrooms have Sealy pillow top mattresses and 100% cotton sheets. Whilst the bedrooms and media room have air conditioning all of the rooms have ceilings fans - so you never get too hot! With two bedrooms in the main house (1 with a King, 1 with 2 Queen’s), a media room that can comfortably sleep two and a single bed that can be placed in any room as required there's space to spread out!
The kitchen is clean, bright, comfortable and functional - the owner is a foodie and always makes sure to leave the pantry with some of the basics you'll need for your stay - olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, sugar and some spices. Bottled water is provided, the fridge produces ice on demand, and there is a second fridge to hold all those important beverages you'll want to keep cold! Our housekeeper is a wonderful cook and worked at a restaurant for many years, she is available to cook at an extra cost, give us a call to find out more!
The pool deck provides both sun and shade. The pool is designed to be family friendly with a lovely shallow area for toddlers. The pool can be seen from everywhere in the palapa, so children can be in view but not underfoot. With sun loungers and hammocks and fabulous views of the ocean, this is where you'll spend much of your time soaking up the rays and enjoying a cold Corona.
The sunset bench is the perfect place to sit and sip aperos, snack on appies and watch the magnificent sunsets

**During the winter months, often from November to the end of February the owners are in residence in the Casita on the back of the property. There is complete separation of the two spaces, and each has it's own pool. the owners are available and willing if asked to help guests plan activities and figure out how to get around, and to ensure all aspects of the house are in perfect working order, but also happy to be completely ignored!
