“Luciana’s home is truly dreamy, we loved everything about it. The beds are comfortable, close walk to the beach and the pool couldn’t be more perfect. She was very helpful before and during our stay, she helped us get in contact with an amazing cook who came and cook for us at the house. We enjoyed every minute of it, our vacation was so special and we are coming back next year. Thank you Luciana ! ”
Where is it?
The tiny town of Santa Elena is located along a remote stretch of Pacific coast, a half hour south of the port town of Puerto Escondido. Backed by jungle and situated along the scenic shoreline, there are miles of picture-perfect beaches including surf spot La Grava just in front of the house. Also nearby is the towns of Zipolite, Mazunte and San Agustinillo which ha great restaurants and a nudist beach.
Puerto Escondido lies at the end of the Sierra Madre del Sur mountain range just over 100 miles from the inland capital of Oaxaca. Arranged around a picturesque bay dotted with gigantic rock formations, the area is divided between Bacocho Beach on the north end, the Playa Principal resort area in the middle, and the famous surfing beach of Zicatela on the south end.
Considered one of the top ten surfing destinations in the world, it’s an action-packed atmosphere where at night the town comes to life with parties until dawn.
Be sure to visit the wildlife and mangrove forests of Laguna de Manialtepec, an hour north of the house and the ecological reserve and turtle sanctuaries of Ventanilla. Watch for the bio-luminescent tides at night where you can swim among the sparkling waters.
