Enchanting apt in the palm tops!

Apartment - Private room · Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca 71980, Mexico

The Space

The top terrace of 'Casa El Nido' offers a double room with delightful outdoor shower, lovely palm shaded terrace with loungers, fridge, coffee maker and high speed wifi.

We are ten mins walk from Puerto Escondido's most beautiful and exotic beach - Playa Carrizalillo - a perfect place for learning to surf and watch Puerto's famous sunsets.

There are excellent restaurants on Rinconada Avenue - Italian, Argentine, Spanish and Oaxacan high end Mexican cuisine . You can also breakfast, lunch and dine at the beautiful Villas Carrizalillo hotel - looking down onto the beach. We even a small art cinema all within easy reach from the house by foot.

'Casa El Nido' has birds and breeze in a lovely residential setting. Two blocks from the house you can get taxis and other transport - its also an easy walk to our local market - full of Mexican surprises...

Puerto Escondido is famous for surfing - it prides itself on its Mex-pipe status and as a result we have surfers from all over the world as regular visitors.

Puerto's natural environment is impressive. Ten mins from Casa El Nido - in either direction - there are fascinating wild and rugged landscapes. - Beautiful unspoilt bays with natural jacuzzis - one way - Stunning lagoons -fireflies, early morning kayaking and incredible bird watching, - the other.

In both directions there are baby turtle releases and mother turtle returns, at certain times of the year.

Puerto Escondido is still one of the undiscovered regions of the world. I have friends who dolphin watch with their favourite skipper almost every weekend and others who enjoy horse back riding along the virgin beaches most sunsets...

Puerto also has good food and music all year around and lots of yoga and dance to choose from as well.

I am British by birth - a writer - teacher and singer. I have been living and working in Mexico for over 12 years and have lived in Europe, Latin America, and Asia.

I have travelled extensively throughout Mexico and can suggest many wonderful places for you to visit both close and further away.

I am happy to pick you up from the airport.

  • Had an amazing time at Jules and Alf's! Two amazing people, so knowledgable about the area and México as a whole. Alf took me to some amazing places, well off the beaten track, as well as treating me to some amazing food! The house is great and the location is nice and quiet and secluded. Perfect if you're looking to unwind and avoid the crowds and party scene. Loved every minute with these two great people. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

  • I spent 3 nights at Julianne's place and it was just what I needed to relax and disconnect. If you are looking for a place to get away from the hotels and crowds, I recommend her place. Just a short walk from one of the best swimmable beaches in Puerto and some great restaurants, el Nido is comfortable and homey.

  • Do you need a place to stay in Puerto? OKAY, look no further!
    When we booked with Julianne and Alfonso we didn't really know what to get... We hit absolute jackpot!
    Two own rooftops (one is a killer for sunbathing), private outdoor shower with hot water, and perfect location. It's located right in the middle of our two favorite beaches and the grand market!
    It's a pretty basic bohemian getaway with everything you need. Your own fridge, coffee maker and drinking water as much as we wanted!

    Julianne and Alfonso showed us the town and the beaches and all sorts of different activities.
    Even found us a specialist doctor when we needed one AND gave us a ride and translated for us. You couldn't ask for nicer hosts and we will forever remember our stay!

    Thank you!!

    Response from Julianne:

    Wonderful, wonderful guests. Kind hearts, responsible and loving people. Anna and Sebastian will bring a loving atmosphere to your home and it will be filled with laughter. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone running an airbnb. We all miss them!

  • This place is so wonderful! We had a lovely time staying here. It is pretty close to the beach. The bed is really nice and cozy and private. The shower was hot and the private deck has a lounge chair and a hammock. Our hosts were so welcoming and offered us different activities to do and brought us around in their own car to show us around....talk about hospitality!
    No air con- but I found it actually stayed pretty cool at night. I stayed in February 2014.

    I highly recommend staying here!

  • If you're reading this review, go ahead and stop your search. This is the place! Julianne and Antonio are some of the coolest cats we've ever met. Little did we know that when we booked with them it would turn our vacation from hopeful to amazing!

    Where do I begin? First, the price is awesome. Don't let it fool you. Their location is awesome because it's not right in the middle of all the noise, it's nicely tucked away but definitely close enough to just get outside the hustle and bustle in Puerto. It looks further on the map, but that's just because Puerto is so small. Three blocks and there's a whole row of restaurants, access to our favorite beach, Carrizalillo, Puerto Angel where we left from after Julianne helped us book our awesome sea-animal viewing boat tour, and also another cool beach, Bococho, where you can really get away from it all. We had the whole beach to ourselves! Two blocks the other way is the main highway to get in/out of town with the bus station nearby as well.

    Juliane was so nice from the beginning and helped us book over three different excursions. And these were the good ones with good guides and good prices! Ask them about the lagoons and ask Julianne to show you the dance spots. Together they know half the town! Antonio is one of the most entertaining and funniest guys I've ever met. His stories humbled us "seasoned" travelers and he's got loads of them. Ask him for a game of backgammon or Fichapool in the garden and your ears are in for a treat.

    The private room and terrace complete with private WC, sink, shower, coffee, refrigerator, hammock, books, super comfy bed, and washing machine was way more than we had hoped for. There's a nice big fan to keep you cool and if you want to catch some rays the terrace is perfect.

    With the risk of sounding like any other super awesome review, I have to say this AirBNB experience is what we hope to achieve for people staying with us in our own listing. It's way less about the amenities and it's all about who you're staying with. This is why people AirBNB. We will miss these two and hope to visit them again in the near future. Thanks guys!

  • While travelling with a friend we booked this space, and found it to be just as wonderful as it sounded. The space is bright and airy in a quiet neighbourhood. It's located 10 mins from a bunch of restaurants that Julianne thoughtfully pointed out to us. It's also very close to a stunning beach that's great for swimming in, and also where those interested in surfing can take some lessons.

    Julianne and Alfonso were both wonderful resources of information about Puerto Escondido and we enjoyed their company very much. The apt was kept tidy and was a pleasure to spend time in. Thanks Jules!
