Casa Contrada is a rustic chic jungle cliff house located on remote La Boquilla Bay on the scenic Costa Chica of the Southern Mexican state of Oaxaca.
Situated to maximize views of the spectacular shoreline, this custom designed, open plan, 2 bedroom 2 1/2 bath home rests on 1.4 hectareas (3 1/2 acres) high above 300 meters of private Pacific ocean front, on Oaxaca’s beautiful Costa Chica. Cooled by ocean breezes and tropical fans the house is extraordinarily open, but fully screened. The entrance level ‘social floor’ features a gourmet kitchen, banquette dining area , large sala, (living room), open terrace and cantilevered palm-thatched porch, 1/2 bath and pantry. The lower level features two very private bedroom/bath suites with ample balconies for private relaxing. This floor also include the laundry, utility room and storage
It is remote...secluded.... tranquil...... and SPECTACULAR!
Surrounded by jungle, with fabulous views facing South across the Pacific you are constantly aware of the gentle waves on the rocks below, awakened by the sun, cooled by ocean breezes, witness to rich sea life below and ocean fowl at eye level. Don’t be surprised to see eagles, Sea Osprey, frigate birds, and of course pelicans, whales, dolphins. and sea turtles.
This is the home of George & Lauda owners of the nearby Hotel Bahia de La Luna, where beach accommodations are reserved for guests of Casa Contrada, including beach palapas, kayaks and snorkel equipment. This is a 15 minute walk along the brecha (woodland road) on the ridge above the ocean.
This couple, former New Yorkers, moved to Mexico in 1997 and spent years driving the coasts of Mexico searching for the perfect combination of climate, geography, seclusion....and then discovered beautiful La Boquilla Bay, a combination of rocky promontories sheltering lovely small beaches, This is where they chose to build Casa Contrada.
To make your stay even more relaxing, our maid will prepare a daily breakfast of Mexican specialities or of your choice; make the beds, clean the house and depart by noon.
