  • Paradise is the only word to describe this home.

    "Paradise awaits! Mario and his team have absolutely thought of every detail to make your stay unforgettable. Although the house is not in the sand it is just steps from the sand and waves. The staff makes every attempt to make certain that your stay is all you have dreamt it would be. Our stay was for two weeks. We arrived to the coast a week ahead of when we had originally planed. We stayed at a small rustic resort a short walk down the beach in the town of San Jose which we absolutely loved. Try the baker on the corner his chocolate coconut cakes are to die for as well as any other items he has for sale. We did contact Mario who offered to allow us to check in early free of charge! How often does that happen? Mario went out of his way to make sure we had everything we could possibly want or need. We plan to come back as soon as we can. We love Ecuador, the people, the land, the sea, but most of all the kindness of the Ecuadorian people. We spent 6 weeks in Ecuador and ended our trip with our stay at this property. If you are considering staying here do it you will not regret it. Thank you Mario & staff you made our trip absolutely amazing. We can not mention enough kind words to express the welcoming feeling you folks provided us. True hospitality at its best."

  • PURE CLASS NOTHING LESS

    "I don't want to repeat what everyone has said about this apartment,because it is all true ,plus more. I want to comment on the owner , Sergio. I had my flight canceled and my girlfriend ,had to arrive from a different country a day before me. It was her first time in Ecuador so of course I was worried . Through emails alone I contacted Sergio with my problem,and he had his driver, Pablo meet my girlfriend,very early Sunday morning, escort her to the apartment, where his sister Carmen ,took over reassuring her how safe the apartment was, Sergio, Carmen and Pablo ,really put me at ease with their help. Alot of owners may not had shown this much care, This is a first class apartment ,with a first class owner. Mil gracias Sergio ,Carmen and Pablo No one will ever regret their stay at this apartment ,guaranteed !"

  • Perfect Getaway

    "We spent almost the entire month of March in the Alta suite. As first time travellers to Ecuador, Bob and Roxanne were fantastic.Any questions that arose, prior to or upon our arrival, they had the answers.They even arranged our transportation from the airport to the coast.They greeted us warmly when we arrived,and the suite is exactly as advertised, everything you could need is here.It's obvious our hosts have the enjoyment of their guests in mind when furnishing these suites, and any request is simply not too big for them.The property is gated, the gardens lovely and the beach is wonderful. Fine sand, shallow,warm water that stretches for miles makes it hard to leave everyday when the sun goes down. Monglaralto has the hospital across the street, a pharmacy and some small restaurants, and the larger town of Montanita is just a quick cab ride(or 40 min walk up the beach), with a larger selection of eateries and bars.All the local people are friendly, the area is safe, and we would definitely recommend staying with Bob and Roxanne.Thank you both for sharing your slice of paradise with us."

  • Close to everything but away from it all

    "La Casa de Curia is the absolute perfect homebase for exploring a bit of Ecuador's Ruta del Spondylus. The house is very comfortable and was ideal for our group of 5 (although it could easily accommodate more). It's location high on a hill allows you to take advantage of the refreshing ocean breezes, while being close enough to the beach to hear the crashing waves. And with access to a private and nearly deserted beach just a short walk down the hill, you might not want to leave the property at all. Once you do get motivated to leave, there is much to do and see within a short drive. Montañita's party scene - if that's your thing - is an easy (and cheap) cab ride away. Personally, we preferred the more peaceful vibe on the beach in Olón, where a row of beachfront restaurants serve up delicious fresh seafood and cold beers at unbelievably affordable prices. Don't miss the ceviche de ostra sold from the little cart - it seriously doesn't get any fresher. One of the highlights of the trip was watching local fisherman pull up their catch on the beach while the enormous frigates and pelicans swooped and dove to get their fill of fish. Amazing! But much more amazing than the house and it's incredible location are the people you will meet at Casa de Curia. Don Julio was incredibly helpful to us and I am so glad to have met him. He truly went above and beyond for us, especially when my daughter had a little surfing accident and split her lip. I was so worried that she might need stitches, but Don Julio knew just who to call (it seems he knows everyone and everyone knows him) and she got treatment within half an hour. I cannot thank him enough for his kindness. I would simply add that you can book this house with confidence, knowing that you will be in excellent hands during your stay. We will definitely be back. Thank you Bernardo and Don Julio."
