Welcome to paradise! *SMALL GROUP? We can customize your reservation! Please inquire for details...*

Perfect location with 12 miles of beach, flourishing vegetation and surrounding mountain views. Upscale neighborhood. Unobstructed view of beach and sunsets. Beachfront location with direct access to the beach and water. Ideal for weddings, reunions and special events. Swimming is very easy, with no rocks to worry about, all sand. Surfing lessons can be taken right in front of the house. FREE 24/7 access to caretaker and to maid/cook! World-class surfing in Montañita less than 10 minutes south, featuring dancing, restaurants and bars in the evening. Taxis are on-call anytime, day and night.

What makes 'La Dolce Vita' different from other properties in the region? Firstly, we are on a very large and private lot of 2,000 square meters - and the land is covered by mature plants, fruit trees and flowers. Many other properties are on smaller lots and lack our privacy... There are no vendors or buses full of tourists all over our beach. The beach feels as if it's all to yourself, but you're only 10 minutes from town. Our privacy, large lot and safety make this ideal for children to run free and play. Also, La Dolce Vita's construction is a combination of stone, brick and natural wood throughout the home, featuring striking wooden ceiling beams creating a rich, rustic and unique charm. The perfect home away from home. Lastly, your housekeeper is included free of charge! ($10/day extra for 9+ persons)

30 minutes north is a town called Puerto Lopez, where tours can be taken to go snorkeling, fishing or to see the whales breaching. Also at Isla de la Plata there are sites for world-class birdwatching where half-day to full-day tours are offered!

Exquisitely landscaped property with coconut palms, fruit trees, flowers and a stunning, custom-built 8 foot brick privacy wall. Featuring gate for car entrance; Parking available for up to 10 vehicles.

Main home features 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, upstairs loft, living area, gourmet kitchen and vaulted ceilings throughout. Master bedroom upstairs has ocean view and hot tub which looks directly out to ocean. Also features fully renovated master bathroom. Queen-size bed.

2 Bedrooms downstairs share a full bath. One bedroom has a queen-size bed, the other has one full-size bed. **Special requests for an extra bed can be accommodated.**

Living area downstairs features beautiful stone fireplace and dining area off kitchen with seating for six. Kitchen also has bar with 4 stools and features stainless steel appliances.

In upstairs loft there is a flat-screen TV with DVD player with large movie selection, and DIRECT TV included with many channels including CNN, Fox News and other English channels. We now offer WiFi on property, accessible from every area including the beach.

Grill and barbecue on porch for family gatherings and meals outdoors. Apartments on estate also offer built-in grill and seating areas.

NEW, HIGH-EFFICIENCY CEILING FANS THROUGHOUT THE HOME & IN EVERY BEDROOM

FURNITURE IS OWNER'S OWN, NO HOTEL/HOSTEL FURNITURE. FULL OF DETAILS AND PAINTINGS THROUGHOUT THE HOME.

During your stay you will have 24/7 access to our caretaker, Catalino and his wife, Maria. Catalino is there to help you with cooking, cleaning, groceries, special requests, taxis, transportation, parties, beach canopy setup, and anything else to make your stay comfortable.

The apartments are not attached to the house; each has separate entrance. Apartments can be rented with or without the house.

Contact the owner for more details on his wonderful property. ALL INQUIRIES WELCOME and prices negotiable.

**No refunds or cancellations, however we will work with you to reschedule if dates are available**

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Hello! We are brother and sister currently residing in Columbus, Ohio, USA. We have had strong ties to Ecuador since we were young and much of our family lives there. Our mother has managed the property since her retirement and lives in Ecuador full-time. We're very flexible and hands-off, and will do anything we can to accommodate your requests. Please give us a call if you have any questions or concerns before making your reservation.

Why the Owner Chose Montanita:
The beach frontage and quality of the beach at the property was unmatched. Most of the other homes have rocky beaches or shorelines. Also loved the rustic and warm feel of the home, it feels like a real residence and not like a hostel or motel. We have invested many tens of thousands of dollars in upgrades to the property and our goal is to make this a world-class vacation destination.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Best value in the region. Perfect, unobstructed ocean view and access. Accommodation for large parties while keeping intimacy and privacy. Not a large, cold hostel environment. Full of details and intimacy. Stone fireplace in living room. Paintings, furnishings, mirrors, rugs, etcetera are placed throughout the home and apartments as well.
