  • Beautiful accommodations, great views, and excellent location.

    "I was in a group of six who traveled to Montanita to enjoy the sun and surf for four days. After looking for a number of different rentals on VRBO or AirBnB, we stumbled upon Chad's gorgeous penthouse apartment. Montanita is a small town with a strong backpacker vibe, so nice and affordable accommodations are few and far between. While a little more expensive than some other places we were considering, the Penthouse was dramatically better than any other options located in town. The Penthouse is located at the top of the Taino de Sky hotel, allowing it the privacy of a private apartment with the convenience of a hotel. There was always someone on staff to help orient us and breakfast (eggs and rolls) was included everyday. The nice people at the front desk spoke some English and even helped arranged transport for us. The building is clearly in the middle of a redevelopment, so other floors were unfinished. However the lobby and the Penthouse are complete. One very minor nuisance is that the Penthouse is is a walkup located on the fifth floor. It is a bit of a climb to do frequently and you need to bypass some unfinished parts of the building every time you ascend or descend, however the owner is very clear about this in his description. It should not deter you from this wonderful home. The Penthouse itself is airy, spacious, and very modern. It has two large bedrooms (one with an ensuite bathroom) and another bedroom with bunks. There is a beautiful balcony which overlooks the ocean and provides great views. There is A/C units in every bedroom as well as a large unit above a nice flatscreen TV. We struggled to figure out how to turn on the main A/C unit on for a bit until we learned we had to open up the cover to find a hidden power button. Aside from some small stains on the couch, the whole apartment was incredibly clean and well lit. It is obvious it is a very new space that has been well taken care of. We did see some very minor signs of the newness (some wall finishings were painted roughly and the large dining tabletop was not bolted to the table's feet) however in all it was in superb shape. We really enjoyed the location because it was right on the beach and about two blocks from the main nightlife area. This made it convenient yet quieter than other locales. The owner, Chad, was very responsive, helpful, and professional. Given the other offerings available in Montanita, we all thought it was a great deal."

  • Hear the waves crash right outside your window!

    "We loved staying at this luxurious house. It is one of the nicest homes on the coast of Ecuador. We had an upper floor room with a balcony that looked out to the Pacific. The gardens are beautiful, you can see a variety of birds and geckos everywhere you go. Transportation is right outside the door. The bus comes by regularly if you don't have a car. We enjoyed spending time with Bruce and Kim who stay in the house while you are there. The caretaker is also around and he is very helpful. We cooked several meals, it was easier to do that in the other house since the kitchen in the main house is small for two people to maneuver. The beach is breathtaking! It is almost a private beach, with only the neighbors using it. The house is located directly on a beautiful 7 mile stretch of beach which goes all the way to south to Olon - you can surf, walk, ride bikes, and swim every day if you choose. There are surf board and bike rentals in Olon and excellent restaurants if you don't feel like cooking. (We didn't get sick once, everything was so fresh) Overall, this place is highly recommended. The house is well built and designed properly, you have excellent hot water and internet available. We will definitely consider returning!"

  • Stunning rental in Ayampe's quiet beach community.

    "This is a gorgeous rental! Very clean, well stocked kitchen, comfy beds and modern baths. Owner was great to work with and very responsive to all communications. Caretaker greeted us on arrival so any questions could be answered. The ping pong/pool table was an added bonus after a great day on the beach as well as the hot tub and pool."
