What makes 'Latitude1 B and B' different from other properties in the region? First, we are on a large private estate of 3,000 square meters - and the property is landscaped with mature plants, fruit trees and flowers. Few other properties in our area have our open space and privacy... no vendors or buses full of tourists swarming our beach. You will feel like you are on your own private island. Our large fenced property is an ideal place for you and your family to play. Latitude1 B and B is a charming property constructed from a combination of stone, brick and natural wood throughout, with wood plank ceilings, beams and posts featuring unique joinery crafted by a skilled shipwright. It is the perfect base from which to explore Ecuador's many delights.
Awake each morning to the sounds of birds singing and the smell of freshly brewed coffee to be enjoyed on the veranda. A delicious breakfast awaits you including fresh fruit, cereal, eggs to order and pastries. Then off to explore!

Myron and I, (Susan) are originally from the U.S. We moved to Ecuador in 2012 from Pt. Barrow, Alaska where we owned and operated a small B and B. We have traveled extensively in the U.S. on our harleys and always enjoyed staying in B and B's, meeting new people and exploring new places.
Susan and Myron McCumber purchased this villa in 2013
We spent 6 months walking the beach between Montanita and La Entrada looking for our dream of owning a beachfront home. With its convenient location to restaurants and nightlife while still maintaining the serenity of a countryside estate, Latitude1 B and B met all of our needs. You will feel at home the minute you step through the door.
A cool ocean breeze, the sound of the waves, the palm trees swaying gently in the wind. An afternoon nap in a hammock, curling up with a good book or enjoying a cold beer on the veranda. Life doesn't get much better than this.
We had a fabulous time at this amazing home away from home. The property is beyond beautiful, and the home is beautiful and cozy at the same time. The dogs made us feel safe, and we're very well behaved and sweet to be around. I would highly recommend this remarkable B and B!
Our stay at the McCumber's B&B near Montanita in Ecuador was nothing short of remarkable. The accommodations were as advertised and then some. Our bedroom, and the whole house for that matter, make you feel completely at home. Our queen-sized bed was the most comfortable of our entire trip and was outfitted with first class linens.
The five bedroom home has an upstairs area with a great billiards table, a living room with a flat screen TV, and a nicely appointed kitchen. There is something of interest to see wherever you look in the house and the furnishings were all first-rate and very comfortable. There is even a covered outdoor balcony with an ocean view for private massages, which we didn't have time to enjoy this trip. Maybe next time.
The B&B is located on a substantial parcel of land with a large fenced yard running from the house to the beach. It is situated right in the middle of 12 miles of a smooth and sandy beach that rarely seems to have more than five people on it at any one time. The waves in front of the house were perfect for boogie boarding and the sunset was gorgeous during our visit.
The popular surf and party town of Montañita is only a 10 minute ride down the highway, but feels like a world away from this relaxing B&B. The town is definitely worth checking out though, with some good restaurants, bars and a wide variety of interesting individuals.
I can't complete this review without talking about the tasty breakfast served that included freshly brewed coffee, fresh fruit, cereal, eggs and a nice pastry. We had a choice of enjoying our breakfast at the dining room table or out on the covered deck. Both offer great ocean views and the relaxing sounds of the waves and we chose to eat outdoors. Susan is an exceptional host and cook and you can tell she is willing to personalize your breakfast to the degree possible. She also has an excellent knowledge of the area and is quick to offer suggestions about where to visit and what to do during your time on the coast.
All in all, this was a great stay for us and it is very easy to give the B&B a full five star recommendation to anyone looking to experience the Ecuador coast.
We needed a relaxing getaway with personality and comfort after visiting Guayaquil and we certainly found it at Susan and Myron's beautiful B&B just outside of Montanita, Ecuador. No matter what you are looking for, this location delivers. Their beautiful home sits right on the ocean and offers a panoramic vistas that have to be seen to be believed. While you are a short ten minute ride to popular Mantanita and all of the fun and frolic to be found there, the 12 mile beach - with the B&B located right at the center - is virtually empty for hours at a time.
Inside the B&B, nothing is left undone. The furnishings are interesting and nicely eclectic, the beds are comfortable with the highest quality linens and the breakfast Susan makes is honestly the best I have ever experienced at a B&B anywhere in the world.
This is a B&B experience that competes with one of the most beautiful ocean views you will find anywhere along the Pacific Coast. I highly recommend it and these exceptional hosts to anyone looking for a relaxing, best of both worlds getaway.
Montanita offers an active nightlife scene and some amazing surfing including international events drawing thousands of spectators to the beach.
There is whale watching during migration times and this area is a bird watchers paradise.
