Just 400m away from Ecuador's most beautiful beach "Los Frailes". Less than 10min drive to Puerto Lopez, famous for whale watching and a lively town.

The place is brand new (new construction) ideal for adventurous groups and couples. Just meters away (5min walk) from the beach. Snorkeling is famous at "Islote Suce" which is a small piece of land just meters away from the beach. Also perfect for outdoor activities such as mountain biking, trekking, hiking, kayaking and paddle boarding.

The space

The house is brand new and has an amazing view. I'm still finishing some construction details around it and hoping to have a nice backyard ready soon but it's still very cozy and the sunsets are the best! There's plenty of space around the house for bbq'ing, hanging out, exercising, etc.

Guest access

The kitchen is downstairs and is fully equipped. It's a space for all guests to use. The second floor is where I currently live but I'm setting up a TV and a sofa there which will be a living room for people to use and hang out.

Other things to note

I own Paddle boards which I rent for an extra fee for you to take to the beach and do some paddle boarding! I also organize snorkeling tours to the "Islote Sucre" (see pictures) right in front of the house so you just let me know and I'll organize a cool tour!

Carlos is a super-nice person with positive thinking. Rooms are clean and very cozy. Surroundings is great with nice, almost private, beaches. Definitely, make sure you go for kayak/paddle board trip- it is worth it!

Juan Carlos is a great, very friendly guy. He was very helpful and adviced us what should we visit, where to go to eat etc. The place is also very nice to stay with a nice ocean view. We recommend it!

Jaun Carlos was very kind, accommodating and welcoming. The accommodation is simple but clean and there is a second listing next door to this one. There is also a shared kitchen next door to the 2 rooms. The wifi is excellent, so the place overall is great value for the price. Good to note that the accommodation is on a hill very close to the main road, though very close to a lovely beach it is a bit noisy. Machallilia is a very small town with only few places to eat. Perfect for staying a couple of days and exploring the cliffs and hidden caves and beaches of Los Frailes. I was traveling alone and though I didn't feel unsafe as the town is not very touristy, I felt a like a bit of an outsider and was ready to go after 2 nights.

Amazing host, amazing location, amazing stay. I recommend this place to anyone wanting to go to Los Frailes. The beach is walkable and Puerto Lopez is a taxi-ride away. Juan Carlos was great and super helpful! Perfect for a weekend away.

I stayed 3 nights in Carlos's Apartment and I had a great experience. The house is located in Machalillia town which is about 10 minutes drive from Puerto Lopez. The view from the room is spectacular where you see the beach. Even though the house is under construction, it had most of necessary stuff that you need. More importantly the host is very hospital and friendly person who likes to help his guest as much as he can. Carlos made sure that I have a pleasant stay at his house he took us to Machalillia park and gave us a tour in the park for free and had lunch together with another guest in Puerto Lopez. He is knowledgeable about the area and it's good to ask him for suggestions before you book or plan for a trip. I really recommend staying at his house.

Juan Carlos is possibly the best host/bloke in Ecuador. Seldom have we experienced the warmth and hospitality that he showed us from the moment we arrived very early in the morning, after a long journey from Quito. To inviting us to a family BBQ with his lovely Daughter Valeria and her Husband Oscar. He has a wealth of knowledge about Ecuador and the local area and helped us to organise trips into the local national park (which was full of humpback whales!). The room was clean and spacious, albeit basic. The bed was comfortable however we recommend bring a mosquito net, as its proximity to the national park brings many interesting visitors! The house is also next to the main road so if you are a light sleeper you may want to bring ear plugs. Overall we had a lovely stay with Juan Carlos and wish him all the best with his many future projects.

Juan Carlos is one of the nicest people you will ever meet, and his place is brand new and tastefully done. The kitchen is excellent. A 5-10 minute walk to Los Frailes. Recommended
