About Sam Roffe Call me evenings/weekdays I'm East Coast USA time OR Email me

I'm originally from Miami Beach FL. (USA). I owned a real estate company there for many years working primarily with banks & their foreclosed properties in Miami, Ft Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. I now sell non-performing mortgages, anywhere in the US, offered by national (US) banks , governed by SEC for persons/investors purchases.

After a break up with an x girlfriend, tired of dealing with foreclosed families & having no wife or kids, I decided to get out of the big city & moved to the beach town with the most mansions in Ecuador, San Jose. After seeing this Hawaiian style home, I loved it and backed my bags!! I also own the largest laundry in the county with an attached cafeteria. Home brewed flavored coffees, Tea's and pastries.

Why Sam Roffe Call me evenings/weekdays I'm East Coast USA time OR Email me chose Ecuador

Gorgeous views! Hear the ocean waves everyday and plenty of breeze! Being 10 minutes to the party town Montanita, you can have dinner, dance, enjoy but go 10 minutes away to a very peaceful, very safe large home to rest. You can clearly see the Montanita mountain (the point break) from this home. Plenty of space, 64 ft of ocean view balcony, 2,000 sq ft pool deck with a large 16ft x 20ft high ceiling Tiki hut. 3/3 upstairs home with horses available for beach rides via reservations. Resort style mattresses for a great sleep! Walk to the beach, enjoy the surf and you can eat at a couple of the small local restaurants on the way.

What makes this house unique

This home has the largest pool in the City, or many cities! , from all I have seen.. 2 hot tubs with large outdoor party area, pool lounges & hammocks!. Party lighting surrounds the pool area for evening parties! Greats views of miles of ocean. Nice views of the wet/mist forest mountains away, behind the home. ! *House is Very private since its the last house on the street, no traffic, persons or cars ever pass by since its a private Gated road. *Guided Beach horseback riding is available to our guests as well as special dinners or breakfast prepared by a chef!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a view from this luxury pool home! Better than the pictures! Very nice beds! Xtra large pool was great for the whole family with a poolside tiki hut for food and fun. Gorgeous bathrooms with ocean view. I would recommend this home for anyone wanting a quite, very safe & beautiful large home.

Luxurious Getaway close to Montanita!

  • 5 of 5

You will know immediately, that YOU HAVE ARRIVED to a most luxurious home that is sure to exceed your expectations. The pictures on the website will allure you there, but honestly, they do not do Casa Bambu justice. We love to find the best places to stay wherever we travel, and this destination falls right in line. Just minutes away from party central "downtown" Montanita, and far enough away to enjoy in peace, the most stunning sunsets, you will likely ever see. Go there to relax in total luxury, with the most modern accommodations, and you'll lack for nothing. The world is a big place, too big to see everything, but if you go to Ecuador, take our advice and seek out this slice of heaven. You'll also enjoy your host Sam, who will give you all the skinny on what to do and where to go. He is a super nice guy who truly cares about your experience there and makes sure that you have everything you need! You are in good hands with Sam! Enjoy! Ginger & John

Montanita is known for the surfing capital of Ecuador as well as the longest running legal drinking hours in the entire Country. Drinks can be served in Montanita until 4am and a local underground club (largest & most elaborate club on the sand/beach in the entire continent) continues the music, unheard from the streets, until 9am. There are many, many restaurants in town (10 min away) and most are very inexpensive. Local authentic Thai restaurant with a Thai chef as well as many local favorite spots. Find great pasta restaurants as well as several dance clubs all available in about a quarter square mile of oceanfront/surf front town of Montanita. This large ocean view home is located 10 min away from all the noise, clubs etc.. 4-5$ taxi ride or 50 cents via bus which pass every 15 minutes or less on the main highway that goes through town. Waterfalls are nearby with hiking trials and 4x4 trails. Transportation from the airport can be provided by the owner of the home for a charge. A Special dinner night or Breakfast can be prepared by a chef and be added to your stay, if you wish.
