Photos and Description of the Hidalgo vacation house rental

Ocean front house:4 Bedrooms,5 Baths (Capacity: 8 adults or 6 plus children)

We visited the Gulf coast and the Pacific coast resorts of Mexico looking to buy the perfect ocean-front house, and we found it at the end of our year-long search in the state of Oaxaca, 15 minutes south east of Puerto Escondido and in the southwest corner of Mexico.

As we drove into the access road from the Carretera Costera (PanAmerican highway) we saw the entrance framed with huge red and white bougainvillea bushes, the road itself was planted with cacti, tall trees and palms, and 30 meters before reaching the Costa Cumaná gate we drove through a lovely tropical lagoon, la Laguna Encantada (the Enchanted Lagoon), that was densely vegetated, populated with hidden cackling chachalacas, and which provided a welcome shady corridor. As we drove to look at our future house we immediately knew we had encountered our vacation paradise and our dream house facing the open ocean 50 meters away! Every moment that we spend at our house, La Libélula (Lee-béh-loo-lah//Dragonfly), we count our blessings!

We wanted to live part-time in year-round sun and warmth in intimate proximity to the ocean. The temperature at La Libélula ranges from 75 to 85 degrees most of the year and in the summer there are daily short-lived tropical rains.

We had heard about the natural wonders of the Puerto Escondido from two reliable sources. Ed’s brother was an international surfer, always looking for the best waves. He had frequented Puerto to surf at Zicatela beach whose surf is called the Mexican Pipeline and is in the top 10 surfing spots in the world for expert surfers. Patricia's daughter is an ecologist working and living in Queretaro’s Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve, and she informed us that the entire Puerto Escondido zone was deemed an ecological preserve for turtles, birds, alligators, and the black iguana.

The house was built by a Mexico City couple who dedicated an entire year travelling back and forth to La Libélula as it was being built and lavishly paid attention to the smallest details in design, e.g., tall ornamental walls with hand-made and decorated multi-colored tiles grace the entrance and one side of the lap pool that feeds into the main pool, the floor in front of the master bed has an inlay of tropical leaves made with colored stones, the master bed faces the ocean directly, 4 bedrooms to accommodate many guests and family members, and much more.

Keywords: One storey, 1 master BR, 3BR with 1 queen and 1 single beds, ceiling fans, lap swimming pool, palapa roof over beachfront living and dining rooms, study with A/C, wi-fi, TV, tropical and desert gardens, full time housekeeping and ground keeping services.
