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. Your well behaved pet is always welcome.. Sorry no children
Pick up from the Manta airport or bus terminal on request $ 15
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.
Guess have access to washer and dryer

We were supposed to have had 4 nights in a full condo suite. 2 weeks prior to arrival we were told the unit was overbooked and we no longer had those accomodations. The manger said we could have a smaller unit which we agreed to for 2 days. I was not pleased with the change as the unit had been completely paid for much earlier. On our arrival we went to the new accomodations and were pleasantly surprised at the new renovations. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. We did not realize that the accomodations were a $10 dollar cab ride from Manta. There are no stores or bakerys in the area so you want to make sure you shop before coming out here. Kite surfing is the big draw for this area. During winter months it is pretty desolate other than weekends. Many foreign young people come to kite surf.
My family and I spend several wonderful days at Linda's place. We rent several rooms and the accommodation for all of us was so easy. The beach was so close and so pretty. The great communication made our stay possible.
We had a great time at Linda's place. She was a great host, the studio was very nice and the beach was beautiful. Linda took us to several places and made sure we got to meet and talk with several expats which was one of the reasons we traveled to the Manta area.
Beautiful studio. Impeccably clean. Steps from the beach and a wonderful, gracious host. Perfect solution if you want a semi-remote stay with spacious, open beaches and an authentic Ecuadorian beach experience.
Linda's place is quite interesting. There are several other foreign tourists there at all times looking for possible relocation places. We enjoyed our stay very much. Linda is very accomodating, picking us up at the airport and taking us to the airport when we left Manta.
The reservation was canceled 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Linda picked us up from the airport and showed us around. She was an amazing host and the place was outstanding for the price. You can hear the waves at night as you're going to sleep. I highly recommend checking this place out! : )
