This community is just up the street from the main surfing beach. Dan’s Deluxe Café is a popular restaurant just 40 yards away from the house.

This residential area is called Colonia Santa Maria and is on the south side of the street named Bajada las Brisas.

From Casa Zicatela, the main surfing beach and the restaurants and cafés on the beach are just 200 meters away.

Most everything you do in Puerto Escondido is within walking distance from this house. You will love the location!

Here is a Google map link. Copy and paste it into a browser:

Casa Zicatela Description:

Open and coastal concept home. Upstairs is the large living area, dining area, kitchen, and desk area. The upstairs is very open with tall arched windows, 13 feet vaulted ceiling supported by wood beams ceilings with ceiling fans.

There is tons of natural light and great airflow. This is where you spend most of your time.

The couch is a huge “L” shaped couch with each half of the couch being 7 feet long so people can take naps on the couch or it can be used as extra sleeping.

The desk area is just behind the couch and is a great to set up your lap top and is where the modem is located.

The kitchen is well equipped with a blender, coffee maker and filters, toaster, microwave, gas stove with oven, refrigerator and cookware. The counter tops are huge and have electric sockets.

The kitchen is a very good size so several people can cook and prepare drinks at the same time. The bar has seating for 4 but can fit more.

The dining area is wonderful. Here you will have dinner and see the palm trees sway just outside the windows.

This whole upstairs area of the house is just simply nice and tropical. You will feel as if you are in Puerto Escondido.

The downstairs of the house is where the 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are. Both bedrooms are large and have plenty of closet space. Both beds have good quality and imported sheets and towels from Costco USA.

Both bedrooms have ceiling fans over the beds and have 9 foot tall ceilings.

Both bathrooms have a tropical feel with tropical colors and natural river rock shower floors.

The house in the past had great views. But then as more homes and buildings started going up so did the trees, and not the ocean view is mostly blocked.

The mature trees in the yard are what really keeps the house cool. In front of the bedroom patios is a large brick patio surrounded by grass and tropical plants.

There are two lime trees you can pick limes from to make margaritas from scratch, lemonade, use on fresh fish.

The house has a washer machine. Most people here hang dry their clothes and there is plenty of patio space for you to do the same.

The room with the washer machine is also a storage area for surfboards, luggage, or anything.

There is plenty of parking if you have a car.

Walking Distance from Casa Zicatela:

Surfing right down the street from the house. Just walk down hill from the house about 100 yards and watch the action or jump in if you area surfer.

From the house you can walk to the main beach to many other beaches including Playa Principal, Marinero, and south to the point where there is surfing along some rocks.


Dan’s Deluxe Café is 3 houses away. At the surfing beach is the ocean front street lined with a lot of nice places to eat with local and international foods all taking advantage of the fresh fish and vegetables.


There are plenty of taxis that cost about $2.5 usd and run on the main road walking distance from the house.
On the main road there are collectives which are cars that look exactly like taxis but you share a ride in a general direction and thus they cost less. Flag them down from nearly anyway just like you would a New York taxi.

Bring the printable driving directions map.

Services and Town:

There are 3 convenience stores all within 100 yards of the house for all the basic suppies and more.

Town is where the supermarkets, banks and the main market is, all about 5 minutes away. For most, the market is the main attraction and it is biggest on Wednesday and Saturday. I will be at its height between 8am to 12 noon but stays open until about 5pm. The market is open 7 days a week.

Get fresh Oaxacan coffee from the coffee supplier ¼ block uphill from the market, on the street in which traffic is one way going downhill. It is on my Google map link. Have him grind the coffee for you.

Here you will also find plenty of transportation, both public and private taxi, back to the house.

There are also two supermarkets in town. One is SuperChe near the major intersection in town and the other is named Aurara, but don’t trust my spelling, and is near the market.

Airport and Buses:

The house is about a 12 minute drive to and from the airport.

There are several bus stations in town with the largest one also being about 12 minutes away from the house.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I feel in love with Puerto and built the house to be next to the surf. Now I am older and I use the house for relaxing, eating fresh and local fish, fruit and vegetables, and walking down to the beach and enjoying the pretty water colors. I feel in love with Mexico long before I found Puerto. The people are so warm and giving. I love getting the fresh fish from the boats on Playa Principal and getting fresh fruit and vegetables from the market. I made the kitchen big so you will easily cook anything you want. I have entertained as many as 20 people at a time at this house.
