About this listing
4.5 bedroom, 2400 square foot, modern Pacific Coast style home. Lush edible garden. Fresh breezes. Views of the entire bay from every room. Plenty of communal space. Five minute walk to the beach. Book by the week or month for best rates.
This newly constructed 4 bedroom, 2400 square foot ( 220 square meter ) modern Pacific Coast style home is a Puerto Escondido landmark. As you arrive into town from the south, the first house on the left is this artfully designed home, back dropped by a clear view of the entire bay .
All bedrooms have decks overlooking the ocean. Three bedrooms have queen size beds and one has bunk beds. It's artfully designed and much more beautiful and spacious than photos or words can describe.
We have a cleaner twice per week and a groundskeeper who will look after your every other need.
The home is perched on a breezy hill at "La Punta" with 360 degrees views of Puerto Escondido and the surrounding Sierra Madre peaks that border it to the northeast. The beach and multiple restaurants are a 5 minute walk away. The house is right by the main road into town so taxis and colectivos are readily available. Casa Del Cielo' or 'Heaven's House' , enjoys magnificent views from every room, and indoor / outdoor living with plenty of shaded decks and veranda. Enter the grounds through bamboo gates into a lush edible garden. People call the house, "la casa de los detalles" because everywhere you turn, you'll see a new interestingly decorated space.
I lived in Puerto Escondido Mexico for 8 years and moved back to Toronto about 1 year ago to pursue my aspiration to run a contemporary furniture company. Now I'm back and forth between Mexico, Toronto and a few other spots in between.
