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.

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
