We stayed here a few days to enjoy the beach. Found this property on FlipKey and booked it that way. Joel is the owner/manager. He is soft-spoken, kind, and helpful. He met us at the gate and helped with luggage upon our arrival even allowing us to check-in early. He lives in the house located about 15' from the apts which made it nice for any questions or concerns. Joel speaks good English and has lived in that home for 20 years or more, so he is very familiar with the area and its offerings.

The apts are spartan in terms of furnishings, but still comfortable. There is daily cleaning service which was very, very nice to have. We were even able to name our time to have the cleaning-person come. The side porch off of the kitchen area is the best par.t. While there isn't a direct view of the ocean, you can hear the waves from there while lying in the nice hammock or sitting at the table. We enjoyed breakfast, drinks, etc on this porch. There is always shade on some part of the porch to make it comfortable. In fact when the sun got too intense, we would look forward to being on the shady porch reading or talking. The bedroom has an AC unit, buy we only used it one night. It was otherwise, nice to have the windows open and fan running.

You cannot tell from the photo that the apts are located in a gated area with Joel's house adjacent. This did not make a difference because at all times we felt safe and comfortable in the neighborhood. In fact this rental is in a very residential neighborhood with mostly families living around. Just down the street and around the corner is the beach access and restaurant row of La Puente Beach. There is a family laundry business just up the street and there are some yoga studios in that direction also.

The only issues were that there was no way to light the gas burners, no corkscrew, no wine glasses! Joel readily provided the first two items, but could not provide wine glasses. It was a minor issue, of course!

The location is the far end of Zicatela which is the nice beach area. The La Puente area is home to mostly a younger, surfing crowd. There are many hostels in that area to accommodate them. However, Joel's place is a street removed from that, so it was otherwise quiet and tame. The opposite end of Zicatela caters to a more diverse crowd and offers hotels and other businesses. So if you desire to be nearer nice hotels and more action you should stay there. However, we were happy with our choice and would stay here again.

Puerto Escondido is a stunning place! The people are fantastic!

This apartment provides everything you need to have a comfortable and perfect stay in the heart of the community and a 30 second walk from the picturesque beach.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 10 weeks and found it difficult to leave we loved it that much!

The landlord, Joel, provided more than anything we needed and made us feel so comfortable. Thank you for the experience!

10/10! Hope to return one day =D
