Our "Suite at the Beach" gets a Sweet Review!

We thot we'd give you all a little update about how things are going with the suite.  A lot of you commented to us about it as it was in construction, so here goes:

Dave and Angela, a nice couple from Dallas, stayed in the suite last week.  We thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with them.  When they departed, we felt sure that they had enjoyed their stay, but we were blown away by how wonderfully they described it!  (Thanks Mucho, you two!)

Instead of just extracting it, I am enclosing the total website where we are listed in "Vacation Rental by Owner".  That way you can see all the details, and hopefully (fingers crossed), maybe even decide to spend some time with us when you are at the Coast...(the review is almost at the bottom of this entry).

The suite is tiled throughout, with the new bath being tiled floor to ceiling. The hot water is provided by a water heater with a tank, not instant hot, meaning that you have a lot of hot water right now. The kitchen is totally furnished, including stove, fridge, coffee maker, and instant hot and cold bottled water.

The queen bed is top of the line "pillow top", for restful sleeping while listening to the soothing ocean sounds...There is a sitting area with easy chairs and a glass-topped dining table which views the breaking waves. You can sit in bed and watch the waves break, too! Your private patio has a table and four chairs. You can walk off the patio and be wiggling your toes in sand in five paces.

From there you can walk miles in either direction. We are located near a hospital and several pharmacies. Your parking is totally protected. We live on the property, and we also employ another couple who provide services that are needed. You can walk along the beach for 30 minutes and arrive in fun-filled Montanita.

Owner's Profile

  • Owner Description

Year Purchased: 2010

We are Bob & Roxanne, and we have lived on the property since 2007. Since moving from Oregon, we feel that we have found the perfect retirement on the Beach in Ecuador. You can find out all you want to about our adventures, by Googling Bobnrox Ecuador.

Why the Owner Chose Montanita

We have been living here since 2007...The new suite is the lower floor our our personal house. It fronts directly on the beach, while we are a level up. We love this location, and we thought that other folks would enjoy sharing our experience. The suite was completed in November of 2010.

The Unique Benefits of this Apartment

The absolute best benefit is the proximity to a wonderful, clean and virtually unused beach. The sand is right at the edge of your private patio. Your suite is absolutely private. We live here, and are always glad to share our experiences with guests.

Brand New Suite on the Beach

Private Oasis at the Sea

Guest: Angela & David(Dallas, TX)
Date of Stay: 12/09/10 Review Submitted: 12/10/10

Spectacular view, quiet & secure setting, private sand beach, waves crashing, screened windows to let in the ocean breeze, coconut palm trees, spacious, tastefully decorated accomodations with kitchen & shower big enough for 2, & WONDERFUL hosts...how could it possibly have been any better? Only by the best meal we had while in Ecuador at the Casa Blanca in the fun downtown area of Montanita, only about 5 minutes away! The whole experience was like something you read about & brochures describe but rarely deliver. This was the real deal. We can´t wait to return & stay longer!

Owner response: Wow! Angela and David's review is everything we strive for. We will do our best to merit a review like this with every person who visits. Thanks a lot--This review is especially meaningful, as it is our first one...
