About the property

Open concept home surrounded by nature w/2 bdrm, 2 1/2 bath, huge pool + beach

Casa JJ is a lovely 2 bedroom, 1,100 sq.ft. home on a 20,000 square foot lot, with a fully equipped open kitchen and living area with beautiful palapa roof and ceiling fans. Both bedrooms have air conditioning, ceiling fans and screened patio doors for comfortable sleeping, as well as their own ensuite bathrooms with shower. Master bedroom is equipped with king bed, smart TV and small private patio. Guest bedroom has queen bed and private entrance. A third small room off the Master bedroom currently acts as storage or a possible 3rd bedroom for a child with an air mattress.

Internet access throughout.

It is just steps to an endless beach where you can walk for hours or play in the surf. Do take caution in the ocean as there can be strong waves and currents.

The pool at Casa JJ is the highlight of our property! At 12 metres long, you can do laps, play games, or just chill out on the benches and have a cerveza or a margarita on the in-pool table! Pool floaties are also included for your enjoyment. Children must be supervised at the pool at all times.

There is also a small outside kitchen area with charcoal BBQ, fridge, sink as well as a powder room + shower located at the pool.

Casa JJ is a perfect retreat for those who are looking to really get away from it all. The fantastic Puerto Escondido Mercado is located about 20 mins (15 kms) away from Cumana. We highly recommend renting a car for your stay at Casa JJ, although, the local taxis and collectivos pass regularly on the HWY 200 if you are adventurous!

Enjoy all Puerto has to offer, while returning home you get to experience the star-filled sky while listening to waves crashing on the beach. Pure paradise. You will leave your stress behind and return to your home rejuvenated. Guaranteed.

Puerto Escondido 2 bdrm home w/A/C, HUGE PRIVATE POOL-steps to QUIET BEACH.
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Great spot. Quiet, secluded and close to one of the most breathtaking beaches.

  • 4 of 5

If you appreciate privacy and long walks on the beach, this is the place. A comfortable, well equipped casa with a fantastic pool, this spot is a short drive (10 min) down the coast from Puerto Escondido, a classic Mexican town in every sense of the word. This is our second stay at Casa J and I expect we’ll be back next year. Having a car is a must for us due to its location, but driving also gives us a chance to explore the coast north and south. The weather in this area during January and February is about as guaranteed as it gets, with temperatures staying around 30’C consistently and not a cloud in the sky. Coming from ‘Raincouver’ this is almost utopia for us. And don’t plan on spending much money here either. Meals at any of the better spots in town usually run $30 or $40cdn per couple at the most, unless you’re a heavy drinker. We found the Rinconada, Zicatela and La Punta great spots to enjoy a day at the beach or a meal in the evening. We’re very fond of Puerto E and our children and grandkids are too.

A great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Casa JJ is a fantastic place and we had an amazing time. It was a great adventure to stay in a place with an 'outdoor' living area - to step out of the bedroom and be met with the trees, flowers, birds - even humming birds all chirping away and the sound of the pounding waves on the beach.

The house is perfect. The beds are comfortable, the showers huge with good water pressure and the kitchen has everything you need. The pool is so huge it's almost ridiculous! It's the size of a resort pool but private - just for Casa JJ. Lots of loungers, hammocks, chairs and floats, it was awesome to float around listening to the crashing waves watching the many birds flying all around. In total privacy.

Step out of the gate next to the pool and in one minute you're on the most beautiful beach we've ever seen. We started every day with a long walk. Lots to see - whales, pelicans diving for fish, a couple of snakes, crabs and turtles. A couple of the nights we took our chairs over and watched the sun set. Spectacular!

We were really glad we chose Cumana over a place in town. It took no time at all to go in to town or the different beaches. Casa JJ is also closer to the little towns of Mazunte and Zipolite. We enjoyed going to the market, out for meals, exploring beaches and towns and then driving back and falling into our huge private pool

It costs next to nothing for groceries and eating out - a pleasant surprise. Also if you want to rent a car (there's so much to see and do) rent from LOS TRES REYES. All insurances, they met us at the airport and 60% cheaper

The owners, Jennifer and Jill, were always quick to respond to questions and very helpful. They seem really nice so we were happy to rent from them. We plan on returning whenever we can and highly recommend the place. If you want something a little different, privacy, a massive pool, fantastic beach, hot sunny weather and an inexpensive holiday then Puerto Escondido and Casa JJ is for you!

Great Vacation destination

  • 5 of 5

Casa JJ is the perfect home away from home - it has everything you need for the perfect vacation. Located in a gated community, safety is never an issue. Casa JJ is also conveniently situated close to major grocery stores, markets and restaurants.

While the property boasts a beautiful pool and is footsteps from its own beach, it is also a 20-30 min drive from 4 other beaches in the area that are totally worth seeing.

Casa JJ is perfect for travelers who enjoy spending time lounging by the pool, or for those who are interested in exploring all that Mexico has to offer.

We had a wonderful time here and would recommend it to anyone who is travelling in the area.

Tout était parfait

  • 5 of 5

La tranquillité des lieux ,la proximité avec Puerto Escondido par contre un véhicule est nécessaire pour se déplacer.

La plage est magnifique à cent mètres de la résidence mais vague hasardeuse pour la baignade.

Séjour agréable avec des copains fantastiques

Costa Cumana is located about 15 minutes outside of Puerto Escondido. It is the perfect location to really get away from it all. Long walks on the beach, playing in the surf or just reading a book by the pool all day - there is plenty to do without leaving. For the more adventurous, there are plenty of local beaches in and around town that provide great opportunities for water sport or just people watching. The Mercado located in downtown Puerto Escondido is a colourful way to spend the morning and stock up on the local produce and seafood.
