About the property

7 bedroom, 7 baths, 1 powder room, private swimming pool sleeps 16 -20 people

The villa is located right on the most beautiful, secluded beach in Los Naranjos, Puerto Escondido's most prestigious and exclusive gated community. The community is about 10 km south of the town on a white sand beach that extends as far as the eye can see. With virtually no commercial development on the beach, you can walk for miles and see only waves, sea turtles, birds and nature. The villa is an easy 20 minute drive from the airport at Puerto Escondido.

The villa has a large open plan design with a dining table for 14 in the foreground so you can enjoy the spectacular view while enjoying your meals prepared by our most qualified chef. Off to the left of the dining area is a large comfortable living area for relaxing with your friends. This extends out to the Olympic size pool as you step off the patio.

* 2 large master suites with king size beds, air conditioning, and large ensuite bathrooms with romantic outdoor tubs

* 3 garden bungalows each with 2 queen sized beds and air conditioning and open air bathrooms

* 1 garden TV room with two large sofa couches that can be used as beds and air conditioning and open air bathroom

* 1 Spa Villa with a king sized bed, air conditioning and an open air bathroom

The villa comfortably sleeps 16, and accommodates up to 20 people. The rental rate includes our staff of 4 people- a housekeeper, a chef (cost of food is extra), a pool/maintenance person and our house manager who can arrange for all excursions, meal planning or celebrations, surf lessons, private yoga class at the villa, or in house massages.

Puerto Escondido: Puerto Escondido ('Hidden Port' in Spanish) is just that, a hidden treasure untouched by mega-chains of hotels. Come discover it yourself.

The Beaches of Puerto Escondido: There are three main beaches, Playa Principal, Playa Marinero, and Zicatela, close to the main part of town, as well as several other smaller beaches to the west. Playa Principal is the more centrally-located beach. Parallelling the beach is Avenida Perez Gasga, a pedestrian-only street known as the Adoquin. Presiding in the tourist kiosk at the west end of the Adoquin is the legendary Gina the Information Goddess. The Andador Esconico Sea Walk begins at Playa Principal and winds westward along rocky oceanside cliffs. About 2 blocks up the hill from the Adoquin is coastal highway 200 and on the other side of that is the downtown business district where you can find banks, many restaurants and cafes, the mercado for local fresh fruits, vegetables, fish and local specialties, etc.

East of Playa Principal is Playa Marinero followed by Playa Zicatela, a long straight beach on the east side of the bay and can be seen from Playa Principal. Zicatela is where the strong waves are that make Puerto Escondido a world class surfing destination. Zicatela offers many beachfront restaurants, cafes, bars, nightlife and shops and has a fun international surf vibe.

Even closer to Casa Del Mar is a little village called La Punta that is a favorite of cool, low key bohemian surfers with a natural food shop, and plenty of beachfront restaurants and cafes, and it even has a great Thai restaurant with live music during the season.

Location History: The town of Puerto Escondido was established in 1928 as a port for shipping coffee, although the area has been inhabited by indigenous populations for centuries. In the 1960's it was connected to other coastal towns by Highway 200. Tourists began to discover the town and surfers found its beaches. Its importance as a port diminished as coffee shipments began going by truck instead of boat. The port does continue to support commercial fishing activity

The house itself is beautiful, we were a big family and everyone got a bed and lots of privacy. The house manager and the owner were very communicative and helpful. The staff was very nice and the food was amazing! We will definitely come back! Very much recommended and great location

Casa Dela Mar is paradise! My extended family (ages 9-76) were in heaven walking the 5 mile beach (we saw almost no one) and swimming/body surfing/boogie boarding in the giant waves for endless hours every day. We took naps in the shaded hammocks and on the many lounge chairs and Francisco made us fresh daiquiris and margaritas and guacamole and chips and then Brenda spoiled us with her cooking at mealtime. The weather was perfect and we never needed AC- the two master bedrooms are open to the beach and you can listen to the waves as you sleep. We stayed home most of the week - why leave paradise? - but Omar's dolphin/whale/sea turtle boat tour was great fun - and Zicatela Surf beach was worth the visit to watch the pro surfers and visit the shops and have a cocktail on the beach at sunset. We all fell in love with the area and HOPE to be back some day very soon. Thank you Karen for sharing your fabulous house with us!

Absolutely stunning place where you can truly unwind

  • 5 of 5

Casa del mar is a beautiful place to really relax and get into holiday mode. I was there a week and found it hard to stay away from the place. We body surfed the waves out front every day, ate delicious meals 3 times a day (always too much food!) and lazed around in the sun. The service was great and I loved the hospitality of Francisco and the grils who were gorgeous. I'll 100% be back to this private, tranquil sanctuary.

Breathtaking Luxury Property

  • 5 of 5

The owners could not have been more accurate when describing this beautiful home as "off the beaten path." But do not confuse that with lacking luxury - Casa Del Mar is gorgeous, beautifully detailed and at no extra cost, has sunsets that you will never forget!

Our family of four took walks on the beach where we saw no other footprints but our own, explored the local market, relaxed by the pool, swam in the ocean and ate wonderful meals at the many local restaurants. There are two towns close by that are festive in the evenings and we enjoyed having dinner and then walking around and doing a little shopping. The towns have a surfer vibe with a Mexican flare- can’t beat it! My husband enjoyed biking and explored the surrounding area that way.

I think our favorite part of the trip was being at the house and feeling like we were the only people around. If you want meals at the house, the cook is amazing! Authentic Mexican fare and everything, including the juice in the morning, was fresh.

The rooms have everything you need and the air conditioning works great, which is important because it is hot! The property was kept beautifully by the staff, it was perfect. The lounges around the pool and the hammocks were awesome, everyone fell asleep at least once a day! If you are looking for a non-touristy authentic Mexican experience- look no further.

Beyond my dreams...

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous home was our paradise on earth for a week. It really is a compound with ample space for 3 families vacationing together. The main house has mirror huge master bedrooms and the.most exquisitely decorated public rooms (the pictures do not do justice to this magazine-worthy design) which all open up to face a large pool, lounge area & wide beach with barely a soul on it. There are also multiple casitas with more bedrooms and a media room set along lush landscaping and bubbling water gardens. The open-air bathrooms give you a sense of communing with nature and have typical Mexican plumbing so leave any gringo expectations at home.

Casa Del Mar is part of a tiny private cluster of magnificent houses that line the beach. You arrive by a bumpy dirt road which leaves you completely unprepared for the splendor that lies beyond the security gate dutifully operated (seemingly 24/7) by a man and his son. We checked out a few nearby houses but really felt that Casa Del Mar was the perfect choice for us.

The couple who are the caretakers of the house are so sweet and accommodating. They don't speak English so having some Spanish is helpful (google translate works thanks to the great wifi service). There is an American house manager who arranged many things for us such where to rent a car, restaurants to go, locating a tennis court in town, and coordinating some meals that our housekeeper tastefully and artfully prepared.

Puerto Escondido is a great place to visit. Although there are plenty of tourist destinations, even the places that offer foreign food, have an authenticity to them that you would never find in major beach destinations such as Acapulco, Ixtapa or Cancun. There's many parts to discover and a car is absolutely necessary since Casa Del Mar is about 10 minutes outside of town. I don't know about what's normal weather there, but it was sunny ever single day of our stay. The AC's in the bedrooms helped us to sleep at night.

All-in-all, our stay at Casa Del Mar was extraordinary and we hope to return as often as possible.
