This lovely upper floor studio is thirty seconds from the beach and has great views of the sunrise, the sea and the stars. The house is peaceful and is surrounded by palm trees.
Named after the tree which grows only here, the bay of Estacahuite is made up of three small sandy beaches. It lies just outside the friendly fishing village of Puerto Angel and is a great place to enjoy the beauty of the Oaxacan coast.

The space
Casa Calypso is right on the beach in the lovely bay of Estacahuite, just fifteen minutes walk from Puerto Angel.
The bay is full of every shape and colour of fish and is a great place to snorkel. Some days as you relax on your balcony, you can see manta rays leaping as well as pods of dolphins and whales passing by.

Casa Calypso is made up of three separate studio apartments. Azul is on the upper floor of one house with Rojo below.
La Casa Vieja is on the upper floor of the adobe house next door. They all share a garden, and parking area. Here are the listings:

Rojo - https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/15631506?s=2PWAF0vO

La casa Vieja - https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/28733610?s=2PWAF0vO
All three can be rented at the same time - just contact us.

Azul is an open plan studio with a very comfortable Super Kingsize bed.
There is an galley kitchen with all the necessary basics, but with so many great local restaurants, you may find you never need it!

There is no hot water (like most of Puerto Angel). Water heaters rust in the sea air. Having said that, the sun heats the water in the tank on the roof to a lovely refreshing temperature, so you’ll find you don’t need hot water.
We have no air-conditioning for the same reasons - the sea air would render them useless. However we do have a powerful ceiling fan

We do provide wifi, but this is the countryside so please don't expect the same signal as you would get in the city! It works well almost all the time, but it can occasionally become intermittent in the whole area for no apparent reason.



Estacahuite is very peaceful almost all year but if you want to see it at its liveliest, come and stay during the two week Easter and Christmas holidays.

Guest access
There are spaces to park one car for each studio in front and they will be safe and secure inside our locking gate.

Other things to note
There are sliding mosquito screens on all the windows and folding mosquito screens for the entrance. If you are careful not to leave them open, they are very effective. There is also a powerful ceiling fan above the bed. No AC ( it would rust in the sea air!)

Water is a very precious resource, stored in tanks, and can run out if taps are left on. Please take care of it.

As in all Mexico, waste pipes are narrow and septic tanks small, so toilet papers need to be put in the bin provided to avoid any blockages and bad smells!

This is the countryside - using the storage containers provided for food will help keep out unwelcome insects.

As mentioned before - No hot water, wifi is occasionally intermittent

Location

Playa Estacahuite, Oaxaca, Mexico

This is the place to unwind, snorkel and watch fireflies in the moonlight, However, you can have the best of both worlds - enjoy all the nightlife that nearby Zippolite and Mazunte have to offer and then come back to the peace and tranquility of Estacahuite.

The people of Puerto Angel are laid back and friendly. If Spanish is not your first language, you will find most will try hard to understand whatever attempts you make to communicate.

Puerto Angel is a short walk away by the main road and you'll find a couple of small supermarkets and a vegetable market, as well as some beach restaurants and street food. Puerto Angel is a fishing village - but if you go the Panteon beach, to the right, you can book boat tours with local boat owners.

Pochutla, 20 minutes away by car, is the principal market town for a large area and here you will find all you need for food shopping and banks. Monday is the main market day (Tianguis) and not to be missed for its sights, sounds, smells and tastes.
