    Our home is located on a quiet beach with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and mountains.  The 2000 SF house has a full size balcony with dining table and gas bar-be-que. The house is tastefully and colorfully decorated with local Mexican art and tile work.


    We spend most of our time taking in the ever changing views, watching magnificent birds, butterflies and whales, reading, writing, eating, relaxing, entertaining or playing one of the many games we have.


    At night we might walk to the beach and see some of the best stargazing in the world....when was the last time you saw the Milky Way? 


    A traditional palapa shades our 2nd floor balcony (which has it's own half bath with an bidet) and views.

    Inside is the livingroom and open kitchen, stocked with everything a gourmet cook needs.  You can stare out at the sea though the almost complete wall of floor to ceiling windows.


    Our first floor has two large bedrooms each with a private bath and shower, a patio and new air conditioners. Both rooms are decorated with local art which Oxaaca is famous for, and sport their own stunning views of the sea.  You can also sleep with the sounds of the waves.


    The beach, 150 steps way, is often empty of people but full of sealife.  tidal pools, fish, crabs and lots of shells.  You can plant your umbrella on Saturday and put it away on Friday.  


    On those nights you don't feel like cooking, there is a small boutique hotel at the end of the beach, 5 minutes walk.  It has a bar and serves gourmet food and received Tripadvisor's "Travelers Choice Award" the last two years.   It serves regional food with an international touch.  Everything from their bread to dressings, sauces, jams, ice cream and desserts are prepared in their kitchen. 


    We have wonderful neighbors, mainly Canadians, who have lived there for years.  If you feel sociable, just take a few steps and walk past any house, you’ll be offered a libation, a view and interesting conversation from people who have stories to tell.

    Everywhere there is a profusion of flowers, fruit trees, colorful birds, hummingbirds and geckos.  If you can drag yourself away from the view and the beach, you can explore neighboring communities that have walking, swimming and surfing beaches, sports fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, boat tours, national parks and restaurants.  Beaches in Oaxaca are like snowflakes in Alaska!


    Right up the road you can buy fresh coconuts to drink and mangos and papayas to devour.  Tender fresh tortilla and eggs are everywhere.

    This is truly a place to get away while living in spacious comfort. Come here to relax, recharge and rejuvenate.  Although you will feel like you are away from it all, in 45 minutes you can be in the center of a city which has nightlife, plenty of shopping, tons of restaurants and more beaches, surfing, tours, fishing and movie theaters with the latest releases.

    In the other direction are the beach towns of Mazunte and Zipolite, both with a laid-back feel, wildlife sanctuaries, turtle museum, lovely boutiques, international restaurants, a night market and a nude beach.

    Of course, our guess is that you never leave the house.


    On more mundane issues we have a washing machine, clothes line, a full assortment of linens, towels, dishes, glasses, books and most everything you might need.  There is a gardener and a house cleaner who come in once a week, and on-site employees.

    Ours is an eco-friendly community.  We use some solar power, recycle and use gray water.  We have a close relationship with our neighboring community and schools.
