Discounts for longer stays

The space
Enjoy our coastal lifestyle in a self contained little apartment. Ideal for couples and solo travelers who prefer privacy and independence rather than the hostal/hotel vibe. Safe, by the beach and with space to live comfortably.

The Experience: If you are looking for a budget friendly beach vacation this comfy apartment is for you. Have an authentic Ecuadorian holiday far away from crowds, tourists and not a condominium style experience. Welcoming coastal decor and vibe.

There is a small compromise for our low nightly rate, and we want to make sure you know this before booking. Although the property is located beachfront, your cute little apartment is not beachfront or looking at the beach. It is located at the rear of the property and accessed down a pathway. There are no views from any of the windows.

But good news!!!....you still get to enjoy the benefits of a beachfront holiday while being kind to your budget. As you lie in bed you will hear the crashing waves, when you feel like some beachtime your feet will be in the sand in less than 30 seconds and you are welcome to chillout in a hammock on our downstairs communal terrace in front of the ocean to enjoy those sea breezes.

Amenities: Has all the amenities you are looking for to rest, relax and live like a local...The bathroom, cozy little kitchen and living area are just for you. There is a hot shower! WIFI in all rooms - bedroom/bathroom/kitchen-lounge.

Digital Nomads
many of our guests work online successfully. There is fibre wifi which has proven sufficent for online teaching, online life coaching, zoom meetings, running a virtual office etc. The apartment has a table that you can use as a desk. The biggest endorsement is that some of our digital nomad return to stay with us.

The Layout: Set up to live in and has everything you need to be comfortable. With two pleasant and separate living spaces; a cozy bedroom with ensuite bathroom which is separated from the mini-kitchen /living by a hall where the wardrobe, dresser, and storage are located. The mini-kitchen/living is small but with sufficient equipment to cook simple meals , has a table for working/dining and a sofa for relaxing. There are plenty of power points for electronics.

Cooling: Ecuador is tropical and can get hot, particularly January to May. For guest comfort the suite has two ceiling fans and two powerful floor fans to create a refreshing internal breeze, but fans won't convert warm air to cold air like AC. We don't have air conditioning, preferring to be fan cooled to keep our eco foot print small. Additional protection from the direct sun's rays is provided by a sun roof placed over the bedroom window.

Security: Enjoy the freedom of our Self Check-in system with a front door that is key-less with a keypad (you will be given the keycode and WIFI password on day of check in) All windows have security fittings and mosquito netting. Usefully sized in-room safe, big enough to secure laptops, cameras etc. There are security cameras on the exterior of the property.

Special touches: We know how helpful it is to arrive to a few home comforts waiting for you.
* There is a welcome pack of bottled water, percolator coffee, salt, sugar, oil and milk to get you started
* For those lazy beach days, we provide beach towels, chairs and umbrella
* Hammocks to chill out in while you read or chat, or maybe just do nothing at all!


** Please note that we work most days and also like to travel,so we are not always available onsite and can only be reliably contacted through the Airbnb chat system. However when we are away from home, guests can be assisted by a local support team from 9am - 5pm

Where you’ll be

Montanita, Santa Elena Province, Ecuador

Manglaralto is tranquil, populated by local families with few expats or tourists. There is a quiet buzz from locals going about their business, chickens running around , the Community PA telling you about fund raisers and fiestas and the occasional hum of salsa music. By 9pm the streets are empty and quiet, leading to lovely restful sleep time.

Few restaurants or bars, but some small cabanita style restaurants on the beach about 2 minutes walk to the north which serve great local style breakfasts and lunches. Also places to buy basic groceries or a few beers.
Walking is our usual way to get around!

Montañita is really close so it is easy to swing by there to grab a cocktail, pizza , sushi or any other food and beverage you feel like. If you fancy dancing there are a few fun clubs to hang out in.

There is a lot to keep you occupied if you want to spend some time away from the beach. Dos Mangas set in a dry tropical forest with birds, monkeys , waterfalls and natural swimming pools is 7km away. Here you can horseride and hike in the verdant natural environment.

Also you can try out Agua Blancas, Los Frailles, Ayampe, Salinas, Paragliding, Biking, Inexpensive massages and Whale watching in Puerto Lopez

I am a Kiwi, from New Zealand , who arrived in Ecuador in 2011 and decided to change my life and stay. My lifestyle here is almost too good to be true, very healthy with yoga and exercise part of every day as well as walks on the beach and swimming. Another added bonus is the fish , seafood, fresh fruit and vegetables which are cheap and plentiful.

I am kept busy being self employed and I have the best office in the world in front of the ocean. Travel for work and pleasure is a big part of my life, and I enjoy the rich diversity or Ecuador and the rest of the world. But I find I miss my tranquil life here on the coast and always look forward to returning home.

Luckily I am surrounded by good people, experienced in hospitality, who help me out with hosting and making sure my Airbnb guests have a chill and pleasurable stay.

During your stay

We hope you enjoy the privacy and independence of your apartment. Arturo and I come and go for work and travelling so it varies whether we will be at home during your stay. But no worries, to make our guests feel at ease and in the know about the area, we are happy to answer your questions in person when we are at home.

If you need advice, local tips or have a problem and we are not at home, we can be contacted through the airbnb chat system. Additionally if we are not around, we can provide help through some friendly locals from 9am - 5pm..


All of us have other jobs, so we can't be onsite 24/7 but we are always contactable through the Airbnb message system although it may take some time to reply as we aren't online constantly. We prefer to use the message system for two way communication with our guests. Please make sure you check your messages as we will be sending you directions, useful tips and (on the day of your check in) we will send you the entrance code for your booked apartment.

On or prior to check in day, we will be sending you a message to set up a mutually convenient time to say hola! and share some inside info about all the great places to go in our area.

See you soon
Regards
Jacqui and Arturo
