This house goes far beyond many rentals in that what is stated here is actually the case in real life. What separates this rental from most others is that ocean front means toes in the sand 10 feet from the front yard…. Not up on a cliff... unimpeded view of the ocean. Internet that works, 24 hour caretaker on property, all water on property goes through a state of the art water purification process, caretaker managed generator available in case of power outage (this is Ecuador), safe beach with a 24 hour caretaker. This is single family house on its own property that is gated off and not connected to other houses as in a townhome environment.

The main home is a single story consisting of over 3,000 sq ft of living area and covered patios directly over looking the gently sloping beach, which at low tide goes out a great distance.

The master bedroom has an unbelievable view of the pacific ocean and memory forever sunsets. The master ensuite bathroom is very large with double sinks, jacuzzi with jets, and large walk-in shower, with a large walk-in closet for those travellers who like to travel with large wardrobes. All bedrooms have king size beds with deluxe sheet sets and flat screen satellite tv’s. A large open living area hosts a huge kitchen with the latest appliances, a 27’ glass wall that opens up to the ocean and pool & outdoor jacuzzi. Before stepping down a gentle step to the pool area there is a 500 sq ft covered patio with custom built stainless grill cooking area. All bedrooms and living room area have fans as well as air conditioning ( sliding glass doors must be closed for ac to come on)

Cook dinner on the large outside gas grill and enjoy a local drink while relaxing or have our caretaker Kathy make you a great meal or grill up some of the world famous local fish or prawns. After dinner enjoy a quiet private walk on the beach with no one around or enjoy floating around in our unique pool with tile inlays of 3d dolphins and turtles designed by local mosaic artist Luis Miranda.

Located just 3km south from the bustling nightlife of world famous Montanita. This setting unlike many (ie Hawaii or Mexico) is more of a cultural experience as the friendly local people and their culture are only minutes away in Manglaralto, Cadete or Olon.
