The Space

This studio is a great option for the budget traveller. Full use of pool next door for small fee, hot water and the wonderful opportunity to fall asleep with the sound of the ocean. During the season you can watch the whales and/or the kite surfers.

The studio features a double bed and the following standard apartment features:

• Private Bathroom
• Full Kitchen
• Air Conditioning
• Access to Laundry
• WiFi

Santa Marianita is a quiet beach. We have 3 kite surfing schools and several small restaurants. Small breakfast cafe on property serving an exceptional breakfast. This is pet friendly and owner has cats and dogs.

Pick up from the Manta airport or bus terminal on request $ 10

Santa Marianita is 20 mins south of Manta. Manta has a very active and friendly expat group. We meet twice a week and all are invited.
The location is great for exploring the coast, meeting expats, or just relaxing and enjoying the peace of the beach. Owner is open to yearly rental.

  • Hola! My limited spanish was all it took to be welcomed by Linda and her very helpful, courteous staff of Danny, Steffanie & Anya with my questions & more questions!
    Wether it's beautiful night's sleep in the large, spacious, fully supplied room "Bailey"; Enjoying the coffee, eats, friends and neighbors over the delicious breakfast; or swinging in the hammocks and chairs under the palapas there is always the soothing sounds of the Pacific landing at Playa Martinita.
    Linda was gracious enough to invite me to join her on her visits to the Manta Mercados for a scenic drive,supplies and "treats", nice dinners with locals & ExPats, and ALWAYS was the first to introduce her new guests as they arrived with her other guests and friends to start the dialogue which makes any traveler feel welcome, appreciated & relaxed during there visit at Linda's "Donkey Den"!
    PS. My two cents on comments directed towards Linda's dogs & cats. As travelers we have ALL noticed the condition of "pets". Linda's a softy when it comes to strays as she gives them the needed Vet visits and love to get them ready for there second chance on a great life with other families! Her compassion for her 4 legged friends is only surpassed by her compassion for her 2 legged guests and friends!
    Linda.Thanks for letting me experience your guest house! Best wishes to you and your exceptional crew; Danny, Steffanie, and Anya! See you next winter! Minnesota Rick
