About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Property has full kitchen with all amenities, lounge and dining area with balcony and sea view, 2 full size bedrooms (main with balcony and sea view), 2 full bathrooms (one is en-suite), entrance hall area, and utility room with washer etc. Main entrance is at ground level (There are 2 or 3 steps up to the front door). Dedicated wifi connection. The condo complex has 21 other units, 2 pools (one with ocean view), beautiful gardens and secure entrance with 24 hour security. Car hire is available locally but is not really necessary, cheap taxis abound and the town center and 2 beaches are a short walk away, Manzanillo beach is the closest at approx 7 minutes walk. The principal and Zicatela beaches can also be accessed by a cliff walkway but it has lots of steps & big waves! I have a local agent who lives on site to help out with any issues, and she can arrange collection from the airport if needed

Also close by is a local market to buy fresh fish, veg, fruit, tortillas, spices and all other known Mexican foodstuffs in addition to handcrafts. For the authentic experience you can also buy fresh fish straight off the boats at the beach, or arrange a trip to catch your own. Puerto is renowned for world class fishing (Dorado, Tuna, Swordfish, Sailfish, etc), along with the world class surfing at Zicatela beach.

For safe swimming there are secluded coves for swimming, snorkeling or just relaxing under a palapa with a drink. At night one can eat out along Zicatela or Rinconada, catch the sunsets there, or have your own private sundowners on the balcony before sleeping to the sound of the sea.

Note that at time of writing (March 2018) there is some construction work ongoing on the next door plot. There may be construction noise for the near future and the construction may partially restrict the view to the east towards Zicatela, but not out to sea, I will be visiting in July 2018 so should have better information then. I believe the photos included here are still representative of the views.

Please also note that the condominium regulations PROHIBIT rentals to families with kids under 14 so you can view that as a bonus or a disadvantage! Great activities for kids over 14 though. Regulations also prohibit rentals to groups of more than 4 persons per unit.

Please note the rates specify a minimum rental of 30 days for the winter period, but it's always worth inquiring if you are interested in a shorter period, especially if the calendar shows a short available slot. Also note that summer rates are always less than winter rates. Please enquire for rates during summer time as they may be less than quoted here.

About Jeremy

Work for international company and currently based in Texas. Want to spend more time in Puerto but not enough vacation time! Hence available for rental.

The photo is our son getting mentally prepared for surfing classes!

Jeremy purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jeremy chose Hidalgo

Puerto Escondido is relatively unspoilt and has NO major chain hotel or tourist infrastructure. The sea views are wonderful and one can get a taste of the real Mexico, plus have access to the state of Oaxaca with its incredible pre-colonial & colonial sites and stunning landscapes and cuisine. There is a lot of informal tourism with local hotels, rental properties and activities, and the place is popular with Mexicans who want to eat good food and get away from it all. Quality restaurants are springing up all the time too.

Maybe one day the world of commercial tourism will catch up and the condo will be worth a fortune, or maybe it'll just stay as it is, either way we win.

What makes this condo unique

Peace and tranquility, great food, local wildlife. Access to other parts of the Pacific coast and Oaxaca State. Excellent surfing, beautiful beaches, sea fishing. unspoilt. No major chain hotels.

Great place just as advertised in a great area!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is great, fully equipped with everything you need. Very clean and comfortable. The complex is beautiful and well kept. Both pools are great with a fantastic view from the front well as from the balcony. It is a great place for morning coffee watching the sunrise, which is spectacular. Lisette who manages this property is amazing and was very patient with all our questions.

Everything you need is within walking distance. You can call a taxi right from the complex........they all know where Eglantina is. The whale and dolphin tour with Israel is a must. In the Rinconada area (walking distance of about 10-15 minutes) there are many great restaurants that are very inexpensive. Some of our favourites were Cafecita, Paris, Luna Rosa, and La Salsa.

Would definitely recommend this property to anyone and we are going back next year.........can’t wait!

Great location, Exceptional View

  • 5 of 5

The other reviews are accurate. The view from the condo and the pool is extraordinary. The property is very well maintained. The location is perfect. Short walk or cab ride (25-30 pesos) to anywhere. First time visiting Puerto Escondido and will definitely be back. Great beaches and lots of fresh seafood! Lisette was very helpful and always available in person or by email.

superb views, great location, lovely pools and garden

  • 5 of 5

Place was great, exactly as advertised with great views from main bedroom and lounge, can even lie in bed and watch the view. At night there are fishermen to watch too. Condo gardens are very nicely kept and the infinity pool at front is wonderful. Location great for Manzanillo beach and anywhere else you want to go. Taxis can be called from right at the front door. Having Lisette (the owners agent) on hand there was a definite plus as she got us sorted out for anything we needed and I would definitely return, right now if I had the chance!
