This is a beautiful, freshly renovated (Oct 2014), 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath house (or add the Studio for 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath option) right on a gorgeous, wide Pacific beach moments away from the action of Montanita. Enjoy a fun-filled, relaxing Ecuadorian vacation right on a beautiful beach among friendly, peaceful people, with plenty of amenities--and all this at bargain rates! Curia is a peaceful little town 2 km (1mi.) north of Olon, 5 km, (3 mi.) north of Montanita, 184 km (114 miles) from Guayaquil. It is a 2.5 hour drive by car or by convenient, comfortable express bus ride from Guayaquil and the Int'l airport. Montanita is famous for its great surfing beach, fun nightlife with excellent restaurants, bars and shopping. Good beach breaks, surfing, and surfing lessons can also be enjoyed right in front of the house! The beach is gently sloping, so that close-in surf is gentle, safe for children. Huge upstairs deck is perfect for dining and parties, providing long views up and down the beach. Enjoy breakfast on the balcony, watch whales when they come through, and watch the sunset over dinner! There are two small convenience stores in Curia and two fresh produce trucks that park 10 meters (35 feet) from the house 6 days a week, offering a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. Fresh-caught fish is sold on the beach. There is also a very good restaurant and little bar nearby on the beach that serves typical Ecuadorian foods, fresh fruit smoothies, cocktails, etc. Perfect for those lazy beach days.
