  • Exactly What You're Looking For!

    "What type of vacation meets you needs? Do you want a private, peaceful retreat where you can focus on the deep blue sea? Are you adventurous and want to explore all that coastal Ecuador has to offer? Party animal? Foody? Yoga buff? All of these types of vacations (and more) can be found at Bob and Roxanne's lovely rental. My husband and I stayed in the Alta suite for two weeks in June. As previous reviewers have noted, the suite has all your needs. It is clean, well designed, and if you can pull yourself away from the perfect ocean view, cooking in the well stocked kitchen was a delight as we watched the spectacular sunsets each evening. The bed was comfortable, and we kept the windows constantly open to hear the crashing waves and feel the constant ocean breeze. We were never hot, and there were no bugs. The beach is clean, private and large. We walked every morning and usually saw only a handful of people on our walks. But the most important detail that is included in this vacation rental is the expertise and connection with Bob and Roxanne. They are both highly sensitive to your vacation needs. They seem to know when you need a ride somewhere, and can help you with taxis or buses, or when you may need to be left alone. They were so kind and their knowledge of Ecuador was invaluable to us. The minute I asked about where to purchase a panama hat for my husband, Bob immediately offered to take us to the next town the following day. Bill now has a snappy new panama hat! Montantita is a close walk and has many nice restaurants. We visited several coastal towns and enjoyed museums, aquariums, restaurants, and a tour package to Isla de la Plata. We actually got to see several whales on one of our tours and snorkled with sea turtles! The people of Ecuador were friendly and kind. Many tried to help us with our minimal knowledge of their language, and we got along fine with our broken Spanish. My husband and I always felt safe as we traveled around. We never saw any panhandlers or people who pushed you to buy their tourist treasures. The locals really appreciate your business. Whatever you are looking for in a vacation, staying with Bob and Roxanne is a great home base. Thanks to Bob and Roxanne's kind hospitality, we experienced the vacation of a lifetime. We will return to Ecuador again, and we will stay with Bob and Roxanne again as well."

  • Relaxing on a quiet beach!

    "The great -- The house is on a great quiet beach with a beach bar and restaurant 100 feet away (weekends only). Going to sleep every night to the rhythmic sounds of the ocean. Casa Blanca is a 25 minute walk or 5 minute taxi down the beach to Olan where there are restaurants with good music and lots of beach bars. If more action is desired a 10 minute taxi to Montanita. The house is comfortable and roomy. The 2 porches are great for socializing and watching the sun go down. Fish venders are up and down the beach all morning hawking inexpensive shrimp and fish. The outstanding – Carolina and Enrique. When the cooking gas ran out at 7 AM we called them thinking that we would get gas on Ecuador time. There were over in less than 10 minutes with a new tank of gas. When they cleaned the house it was spotless. They are a fun and loving couple who made us laugh. The not so good -- Internet and water were spotty. This was not a Casa Blanca problem as our friends staying in Olan had the same problems. Call it Ecuador."

  • Loved it!

    "We loved this place! Large home that can comfortably sleep 10 people, with an awesome BBQ so you can buy fresh fish from Olon and grill it up yourself! Super close to everything we needed. We loved the dogs of the area and loved that they came to greet us every day when we were home! Olon is like no other place we've been to before and we cannot wait to go back to Casa los Panchos! I can't say enough good things!"
