PYRAMID HOUSE CRUCITA ECUADOR

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Manta - Pyramid House

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

A modern house that was created from an abandoned pyramid structure. New tile floors, new private baths (modern), four rooftop decks, and a private courtyard. The private home is a unique structure overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Furnishings are very sparse in keeping with the clean modern interior design but both bedrooms are equipped with a great king sized bed.

The house is on a hill overlooking the town also. Its a short walk to the beach, and to great restaurants serving fresh seafood and local vegetables.

The neighborhood is in a gated preserve of about 15 exclusive homes and a restaurant and paragliding facilities.

Crucita says of the neighborhood - 'The conditions here are quite favorable for Paragliding which is a very popular past time in Crucita. The constant weather conditions make for excellent flying. There is a very nice launch site available which includes a restaurant/bar. A platform on the cliff side makes for nice viewing if you decide not to try flying yourself. Tandem rides are available and are very affordable. The scenery over the ocean and inland is spectacular and gliders are often joined by seabirds that are enjoying the warm thermals keeping them effortlessly in the air.'

Note: There is DirecTV but you also have great views of the ocean, the beaches of Crucita, the city of Manta to the South, the town of Crucita of course, and Bahia to the North.

Cooking is by induction cooktops which can be placed on the center island of the kitchen or left on their cart to be wheeled out to cook on one of the terraces. A little disconcerting for some, but it is the wave of the future in terms of safety, ecology, and quickness.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Manta

I came to Ecuador, like many people, trying to gain an understanding of what Ecuador is and what did it have to offer. I had a clear vision in my head that I wanted a simple, but elegant house steps away from the water and a wide clean beach.

I started looking in southern Ecuador and rented a house on the beach that had all that I wanted. Well, it was August and storms drenched the house. The humidity was so high that I had salt water running down the inside of the windows and salt crusting up everywhere. All my clothes felt sticky wet and everything in the house was wet.... books, pots pans, etc. Living right on the edge of the mighty Pacific was ok most of the year, but the salt water destroyed and made high maintenance in every house on the beach. I decided to see what other options were out there.

I hired a car and driver to drive me up the coast. He mentioned that I should see Crucita, one of the three best beaches in Ecuador. When I arrived in Crucita, I was more than a little under whelmed. The road into Crucita was under construction ( now completed ) and most streets were not paved. It was, and still is, a quaint little fishing village without pretense. I came to love Crucita and the people there.

The Pyramid House was hidden under a pile of vines and was occupied by birds, small animals, and who knows what else. It was an unfinished shell of a pyramid that had been abandoned years before. But it had great features... The floor that is now the master BR and bath, is a platform supported by columns underneath and the floor was 4 feet away from the walls on two sides! So from the lowest level, you could look up 2 stories to the top of the Pyramid!

With a lot of love and support, the Pyramid House is now a lovely modern home that has great acoustics for music and great views from the decks. I can stand in the master shower and see the ocean and parasailors floating above the beach.
