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.

Having rented villas in the Caribbean, Central America, and South America for the last twenty nine years. We know that part of the rental is usually as advertised. Part is not as good as advertised. Paradise Point is 100% as good as, if not better than advertised. It is better than the pictures indicate. The location is great. The owners were prompt and answered all our questions and wants immediately. The Van driver, Luis, speaks English and gives Surfing Lessons. He drove us to Monti Cristi for Panama Hats. A nominal charge, better than a taxi. Long drive, but worth it. They were having a festival. Lots of open air markets with everything from jeans for $5 to caps for $5. None of it made in China, not something americans are used to. Buy boogie boards when you stop at the grocery store near Guayaquil. You won't be sorry when you rent this villa. Kathy is a great cook and Gilson is very helpful when you need anything. In summary, this is one of the very best villas we have had the pleasure of renting. The villa is excellent, as is the staff and all dealings with the owners. First Class.
We stayed here for a week with two other couples. Everything about the house matches the description and photos of the house. The view is perfect and so is the weather and ocean temperature. It was nice having the ocean water only a few steps away from the swimming pool.
The house is perfectly located, far enough from the crowds and noise of Montanita, but a short 5 minute $2.00 cab ride to the fun festivities of Montanita. For a buck more, a couple minutes further down the road is Olon. Olon is a nice little town for those that want to get out, but go somewhere quieter and less crowded. Both are great choices depending on what you're in the mood for.
The location is absolutely perfect in every way, and the house is exactly what you expect it to be.
We stayed here after a busy 8 days in the Galapagos, it was wonderful to relax in this beautifully appointed house on the beach. We enjoyed our morning coffee watching the dolphins swim by, played in the waves during the day, waiting for a spectacular sun set then off to Montanita for a fun evening with the locals. We slept to the sound of crashing waves in the most comfortable king size bed. One day we took a guide and went to the amazing market in La Libertad, then on to Salinas for lunch and a walk on the malecon, what a great day. The caretakers Gilson and Katty took wonderful care of us, always there to assist, Katty cooked us numerous meals, what a treat, make sure you have her bbq chicken – yum. The owners were great to deal with, what a wonderful vacation in a most beautiful place.
This was the most beautiful home in the most beautiful setting I have ever seen. Coming from the North West we are spoiled with our scenery but nothing can compare to the endless west views or the perfect sand. This home is is stunning, the pictures truly don't do it justice. 25/10, it was perfect.
Took my girlfriend for a relaxing vacation. Couldn't have picked a better place and my girlfriend agrees. The house is amazing and the view (especially sunsets) are unbelievable. Gilson and Kathy, the house keepers, were especially great. They were always there to help, calling us cabs, cleaning the house, running into town to grab us a bottle of wine, whatever. This house is great if you just wanna get away with your significant other or bring 2 more couples as there are two full spare bedrooms with bathrooms. House has everything. All utensils, cookwear, ac, wifi, pool, hottub, view... You will not be disappointed. Montanita the little surf town (2 min cab ride down the street, or beautiful 25min walk along the beach) is a great place as well. Lots to offer, amazing food, nice people, surfing and shopping. You can book amazing day packages or a few days over to the Galápagos Islands. All in all the trip was amazing, mainly because of this accommodation, pictures don't do it justice. Best vacation we've had thus far. Hope to come back again!!
This house is a haven of peaceful luxury, immaculately clean, spacious and easy private living for our 3 couples that holidayed for 2.5 weeks. Tasteful, classic decorating with an open concept floor plan. Other than touring about, there is no reason to leave. The pool and hot-tub and outdoor dining are ideally situated for sunset celebrations. You cant get any closer to the beach which is spectacular and you can walk for miles. All internet/cable amenities worked like a charm. The housekeepers provided cooking and cleaning, while being very discreet. Easy walking distance to Manglaralto where we found a clean, traditional restaurant right at the end of the town's walkway. Montanita is a $2 taxi ride away with shopping, restaurants and dancing late into the night. This holiday home is great value for the money. We took many day trips to Puerto Lopez, where we boated to "poor man's Galapagos Island", snorkeled, saw the Blue Footed Boobies. Also the town of Valdivia was an interesting day where we explored the local museum which held some surprising archaeological findings. The people are gracious, every ready to help and practice their English! Having a driver was a Godsend as neither my husband nor I would hazard our driving skills in Equador! There are all kinds of treasures waiting to be discovered in the small towns that surround. Highly recommended if you are looking for a peaceful, restful holiday that is laced with cultural uniqueness. I would say that for North Americans this is what Mexico might have been like 40 years ago - so go before it changes!
