Puerto Angel house description

Casa Orquidea Zipolite is a beautiful, large (1600 square feet, 150 square meters) and private new vacation rental home overlooking Zipolite town and beach with a spectacular sunset view from all rooms of the house, outdoor patios and garden. It has two spacious bedrooms on the second floor with ceiling fans and french doors with screens opening up to a large porch with a table and chairs and ample space for hammocks. It can comfortably sleep six guests, with more in hammocks or our sofabed, eight guest limit please. It has one and a half bathrooms with an outdoor shower, with both hot and cold water. We have a large, fully stocked kitchen with all the modern appliances one could need with a long bar/counter and chairs to lounge and/or eat inside at the bar. We also offer our guests sky TV, with many channels and a variety of languages to choose from.

The house is tiled with beautiful rustic Oaxacan red clay tiles and adorned with various pieces of handmade traditional art from our travels around Latin America, and of course, Oaxaca. There are big tiled patios upstairs and downstairs with a lush tropical garden and outdoor space to enjoy the cooling breeze and view of the town and ocean below. If you have small children, our house has a crib, highchair, swing, baby gate (for the stairs) and a stroller for your convenience. It is the perfect family getaway, with two couches that fold out to create additional beds, overhead fans in every room, hooks for hammocks inside and out, sky tv, and has private access and parking for 2 vehicles as well. Cleaning, laundry and meal preparation are options services we can offer with local people.

The house is a short walk (a couple blocks) to a small store, a 5 minute drive or 10 minute walk down to the beach or to nearby Puerto Angel or 10 minutes in car or taxi to other beaches such as San Agustinillo, Mazunte and La Ventanilla. It is an hour and a half away by car or bus from Bahias de Huatulco and Puerto Escondido, other popular and beautiful beach destinations here on Oaxaca’s Emerald Coast. We can help you with transportation and arranging local tours and excursions, as well as provide extra services as requested. If you want a comfortable and private vacation experience, with an amazing view of the pacific, our house is for you!

                      Car: Recommended

                      Playa Zipolite is located on the Emerald Coast of southwestern Oaxaca. It is a small beach town with nearby fishing towns (Puerto Angel, Mazunte), internationally known surfing spots (Zipolite, San Agustinillo, Barra de la Cruz, Puerto Escondido), beautiful resort towns (Bahias de Huatulco, Cuatunalco/Salchi, Puerto Escondido), and ecological reserves (Huatulco, Ventanilla, Zapotengo). It is located about 6 hours from the capital city of Oaxaca, and is 3 hours away from amazing mountains that transform from tropical to pine cloud forests (San Jose del Pacifico). The closest large city is Pochutla (about 15 minutes by car), where there are large and specialty stores for shopping and all the services one would need. There are small stores in Zipolite and Puerto Angel, where you can get the basics and many excellent restaurants with a variety of cuisines and prices.

                      Year Purchased: 1997

                      About: I am from California and came to Oaxaca in October 1996 with 700 dollars, a backpack, and the idea of becoming a National Geographic Photographer. I fell in love with Oaxaca, the coast of Oaxaca and a local man. We bought our property in February 1997 from a fisherman friend in Puerto Angel who needed the money so that his brother could go to the USA. Our land only had a simple palm hut on it, but what an amazing view! We bought some simple things to live there and start to build our humble home...but everything was carried away and destroyed in October 1997 in Hurricane Paulina. It would be many years that our land stood bare until 2008, when I was pregnant with my son and my family decided we would all put in an economic effort to build a house rather than sell the property. Every brick and tile and plant has all been carefully chosen and tediously brought to our location, which remains very undeveloped still. I am an English and Spanish language teacher, and have been working at a local University in nearby Huatulco for years. I am currently starting my own business teaching languages and translating.

                      Why Puerto Angel:
                      Casa Orquidea Zipolite Vacation Rental Home is a family built, based and run home. We have made great efforts to construct our house and treat our land and our community in an ecologically sound way and work exclusively with local people and materials. We have lived in the area since 1996. If you are looking for a comfortable, tropical and private vacation experience, with unparalleled views of the amazing natural surroundings, the beach below and an extraordinary sweeping vista of the Pacific Ocean....we are the vacation rental home for you in Playa Zipolite, Oaxaca!! Please feel free to get in touch with us for more information about the house and/or the general area. We can also help you with many other services such as: lodging in nearby areas, transportation (locally and from Huatulco Intl Airport), tours, language classes, yoga classes, surfing/diving/snorkeling classes and excursions, translation needs, events, and general event or vacation planning.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The views and privacy at Casa Orquidea Zipolite make for an excellent vacation. Cool breezes, big porches, comfy hammocks with a garden and/or ocean view create many nice spaces to relax and enjoy the surroundings. Our kitchen is specially outfitted for people who like to cook and you can find what you would expect in a normal American style kitchen, complete with waffle iron, pizza pan, sandwich maker, blender, coffee machine, French press, toaster oven, crock pot, juicer, pasta maker, mixer, coffee bean grinder, even a cheese grinder! We like to provide our guests with a home away from home. We can also help with extra services such as laundry, cleaning, meal preparation, shopping and transportation. We would be happy to help you with any information and arrangements for tours, classes and excursions in the area. We also have many extras for renters with small children, such as a wooden crib, high chair, swinging outdoor toddler chair, small table and chairs for children and a child safety gate for stairs. We also have a small library with books for adults and children, in both English and Spanish. Sky TV can be watched in several languages.
