Beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of the casita only 50 meters to a beautiful beach. In Olon we met some wonderful people, ate great food and enjoyed adventures in Montanita and Puerto Lopez. The climb up the hill to the church is worth the walk!

The property was very nice. The grounds were well kept and our cabana was comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

we were steps from the beach. They were clean and the water was lovely. The town is peaceful and friendly.

A few things would have made it perfect. If we'd known they were building a new unit next door, all day long, we may have opted for a different place. It's quiet otherwise. We would have liked clean bath towels and not to have asked for more TP. There was no one around to ask for these things. I know from other tenants; and I smelled it; their unit was very musty. I would go back after clearing these few things up. I recommend it, the price is right and the location is perfect.

Charming, clean, lovely

  • 4 of 5

This is a quaint, originally artistic, and immaculate place about 80 yards from an immense and glorious beach (100 yards, more or less depending on tides) of fine sand opening to the Pacific. It sits adjacent to the small, peaceful village of Olon, full of food markets of numerous kinds, diverse shops, and very friendly people. After almost a year and a half of traveling throughout the Pacific Islands and elsewhere, I have a soft and special place in my heart for my stay here. it is quite endearing. Help from my hostess on all counts was superb. William B.

We could not have asked for a better experience.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Oloncito. The apartment was actually about a block away from the wedding we were attending. The apartment is beautiful and had everything we needed. Your mother was incredibly helpful and answered any questions that we had. On our first day there she even gave us milk and bread for the boys until we went to the store. So incredibly sweet. Roberto was a on time and even stopped to get us drinks. We could not have asked for a better experience.

Quaint little seaside Villas

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented the largest of four properties within this compound, "El Descanso." We were very pleased with the location in relation to the beach and the privacy this home offered. It was just enough away from town were even on weekends there was not a crowd at the beach, but close enough by taxi to Montanita that for under $2 you could go get a drink or dinner if need be. The home was well described and equipped fairly well for cooking. Great courtyard to relax and enjoy tropical birds and flowers. This neighborhood is safe and very well maintained by Ecuadorian standards. The waves on the beach are very respectable for surfing and there is a beach side Masseuse to relax the muscles after a hard set... The property owners and Oswaldito, our property caretaker; keep the place very well maintained and we loved our stay and would stay there again if going to this particular location.
