“incredible sunsets”
Reviewed 20 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

person found this review helpful

stayed last two weeks February. new beachfront property with nice infinity pool. The rooftop terrace provided incredible sunset dinners, every night. awesome endless beach - with gentle slope and nice surf. Property managers and owners were genuinely interested in ensuring we had a nice stay. Location a little remote from commercial activity - nice if you're looking for a change from busy commercial activity. large scale shopping was available about 50 minute drive ( Manta ). Quality furnishings, new construction and beachfront (unobstructed views of the Pacific and Isla Plata) were appreciated. Would/will stay again.

Our experience at Casa Primos was exactly what we were expecting. The property itself is beautiful and clean, the pool was awesome and the view was out of this world! It was just my wife and I staying this time around but I would not hesitate booking this property again for a family retreat. The growing community is full of ex-pats so it made everything that much easier! We arrived after a long drive through the mountains and were greeted by Robert (the property manager), also an ex-pat who showed us the house and then brought us to the community bar where we found a group of Canadians watching the hockey game and a the owner of the bar (Lori-Ann) who was gracious enough to offer us some food and drinks after our long drive! This community is well on its way to turning into something really special and I look forward to go back in the future and seeing the progress! Thanks guys for everything!

“Ecuador Beach House”

people found this review helpful

This is a great villa that is spacious, clean and tastefully appointed. Situated on the beach in an up-and-coming gated community, this modern abode provides all of the comforts, and more, to make for a great vacation. One of the highlights is sitting on the rooftop patio, enjoying a drink as you listen to the sounds of the Pacific Ocean and watch the sunset.

Highly recommended!

“Modern living on the ocean”
Reviewed 14 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

Very well appointed house in the gated Canadian development of Mirador San José. The host recommended lots of activities in the area, all within 2.5 hours driving with our rental car (I would recommend getting a rental car - you get a lot more flexibility). Although we only ate breakfast at the villa, the kitchen has everything you need to cook your own meals. We watched the sun go down from the hot tub on the roof. The hot tub fits 2 people comfortably, 3 people also works but it's a bit more "cozy".

“A Perfect Ecuadorian Getaway”
Reviewed 14 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014
2
people found this review helpful

This is a beautiful oceanfront house that offers a magnificent view of a sandy beach and the Pacific ocean. The rooms are very well appointed and comfortable. All in all, the house is very modern, well decorated and spotlessly clean.

The property has an amazing rooftop terrace with one of the most extraordinary views of the ocean I have ever seen. The terrace also has a jacuzzi which was fun for those late night hang outs. There is a security gate at the entrance of the community (none of us ever felt unsafe for any reason, but it was nice to know that security guards were on location close by).

Everything considered, I recommend this property to first time visitors and to recurring visitors looking to travel to Ecuador.

We are happy to hear that you enjoy the look and feel of the villa rental. You are right, first time visitors do enjoy the large amount of activities available to them along the Pacific Coast.

What can I say? Waking up to the sounds of waves hitting the coast. Whales in plain sight swimming in the Pacific. This brand new property was beautifully decorated. Excellent quality furniture. Every room in this stunning villa offered a view - the kitchen, dining room, family room, the ROOFTOP TERRACE, master bedroom. Highly recommended for a family or romantic getaway. Way better than heading to a resort - a different experience that I look forward to experiencing again. Thanks to Roch and Marc for helping us get booked and answering our dozens of questions. :)

“Relaxing stay with an unforgettable view”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

My friend and I stayed here for a week in august after a long hectic month through the rest of Ecuador! It was well worth it! The villa was beautiful and super clean! Spacious rooms and open concept on the main floor and a rooftop made for entertaining and whale watching made the stay that much more enjoyable! And the whales do come frequently during the season! We saw them fairly close up most days we were there which made for amazing pictures!!!! The beach was white sand and full of gorgeous shells and stretched on for ages! Nice for a dip on the warmer days! Busing to other cities is doable though I would recommend renting a car as it makes it easier to get around! The community itself is still a work in progress but you can already see the potential of a great place! Wifi is bought for a cheap price at the store near the community gate where you can also stock up on basics before heading back to the villa. The property manager was great also, checking up on us and proving to be very welcoming and helpful! I would recommend this spot to anyone wanting a beautiful getaway!
