This house's spirit is the essence of serenity. With 180 degree ocean views from every arch and doorway, with the caress of the ocean breeze and murmur of the sea below; this spectacular rustic retreat is the perfect sanctuary designed to revitalize and restore your sense of awe, wonder and tranquility. Situated, right next door to Puerto Angel’s historic light-house, Casa Faro has an open floor plan that remains cool and breezy during hot weather.

The space

Our secluded, end-of-the-road dwelling is situated half-way between the towns of Puerto Angel & Zipolite. Perched on a rocky outcropping, the house is sits on an acre next to Pto. Angel’s historic Light-House with extraordinary ocean views. It’s an 8-minute walk to the nearest small grocery store and main thoroughfare or a 15 -minute walk to the beaches of either Pto. Angel or Zipolite. Half of the ¾ km. road to the house has recently been paved with the remaining section still unpaved. For those days when the sea is calm there’s a steep trail just 1-minute’s walk down from the house to a secluded, rocky/sandy swimming, fishing or snorkeling cove (see photos).


The lovely sense of seclusion that Casa Faro’s location affords is additionally made more secure due to the fact that it is situated right next door to Pto. Angel’s Historic Light-House. Although we have never had any incidents of theft at the house, there is a hidden safe available for storing ones valuables such as passports, money etc. The property owners lives five minutes away, can be called from the house phone, and will make themselves available should any potential concerns arise.

Kitchens, Bedrooms, Bathroom & Shower

Indoor Kitchen

Indoor kitchen is fully equipped with a modern, full-sized refrigerator, a 6-burner Stove with oven, a kitchen sink, a toaster, a micro-wave, a blender and a coffee-maker. The Kitchen includes basic cooking and eating utensils: cloth napkins, table mats, a teapot, flatware, knives, plates, cups, glasses and bowls including complimentary staples (coffee, sugar, salt, cooking oil, fruit basket Plus 5, 5-gallon bottles of purified drinking water). Refrigerator is also pre-stocked with various edibles-for-purchase including milk, beer, sodas, chocolate etc.

Outdoor Kitchen

The Outdoor Kitchen is perched on a shaded/covered patio to the rear of the house directly overlooking the ocean 150 feet below. This outdoor addition consists of a large stone sink (great for cleaning fish), large butcher-block counter top, a brick wood-fired grill with adjoining “Comal” plus a wood-fired clay-oven (great for Pizzas), a picnic bench, a hammock and a bar that connects through to the interior living-room area. (Firewood is provided gratis for both the grill and the clay oven which also comes with its own custom-made Pizza spatula)

Adjoining Downstairs Living/Dining Room

The downstairs living room/dining room consists of an 8-person dining room table/chairs, a lounge area with a corner L-shaped couch plus a coffee table.

Second Story Bedrooms, Adjoining Sleeping and Lounge Areas + Internet

The enclosed bedroom is located on the north end of the 2nd floor and contains two queen-size beds (the 2nd one directly up above the other on a window-surrounded 3rd - story loft). This double bedroom is also lockable and inhabits a corner which is both North & East-facing with arched brick ceilings and one wall adorned with a hand-painted mural of Jazz musicians (by famed French muralist Heol Geoffrey, see photos). The third-floor loft-bedroom has wall-to-wall sliding doors that open onto its own private deck with dramatic views of the sunrise over the blue Pacific. The 2nd floor master bedroom is surrounded by large, round, center-axis opening windows with gorgeous views of both garden, patio and sea. This lower bedroom area also has a substantially sized 3- drawer desk and dresser for one’s clothing.

The remainder of the upstairs is a large and open space, boasting Casa Faro's most breath-taking views. Adorned with handsome brick columns and a palm-thatched roof, this space offers sweet, cool relief even on the coast's hottest days.
The open floor plan is easily divisible into multiple sleeping areas. A cozy loft built of tropical wood, with a queen size bed offering views of the ocean below. Two large mobile single sleeping cots are provided along with one mobile single bed allowing renters to customize their sleeping arrangements. The second floor also includes one turret-shaped section (more privately situated) which has its own double-size, suspended bed and an adjacent area equipped with two commodious hammocks. (Sheets, blankets, pillows and suspended Mosquito nets are provided for each sleeping unit.)

Upstairs Lounge Area

There are multiple hanging/hammocks/ hammock chairs, a couch, a coffee table and multiple benches in the upstairs prow-shaped living room area, again sporting spectacular views of the surrounding ocean 150 feet below.

Internet & Land-line

WIFI and the use of a Land-Line Phone are included in the accommodations. We have a contract with two different internet companies, one is a land line and the other is satellite, this is to ensure our guests internet access.

Bathroom and Shower Facilities

The handsomely wood-crafted Bathroom and (separate) Shower areas are located 15 feet from the front entrance of the house along the front patio’s stone walkway. Due to Oaxaca’s arid coastal climate we decided it prudent to provide an ecological/composting toilet to conserve water. The only difference between a composting toilet and a conventional one is that an ecological toilet uses no water. Instead of flushing the toilet one pours 3 scoops of fine sawdust into the toilet following each use. The human waste and the sawdust fall into a deep pit where they dry and decompose naturally. There is little resulting odor in the bathroom and none in the house. The bathroom is supplied with sawdust, soap, toilet paper and hand towels. The shower is connected to the bathroom but has a separate entrance and is supplied with its own towels. Both bathroom and the shower have beautiful and very private views of the ocean (see photos).

Garden & Orchard

On the northern section of the property, protected from ocean breezes, we've created a terraced garden & orchard that contains over 50 fruit trees including: Mango, Lemon, Mandarin, Orange, Grapefruit, Pomegranate, Plum, Guava, Guanabana, Chicozapote, Anona and Banana. These fruits are seasonal and, when ripe, are readily available to renters.

I am 34 years old, I surf, play guitar and violin and have worked as a mechanic, mason, carpenter, landscaper, and organic gardener for the past 16 years. My parents took me to Puerto Angel for the first time when I was 1 years old, and I have been going back there almost every year of my life. I am very connected to the community in Puerto Angel and Zipolite, and have been fortunate enough to have had the chance to build a house there over the past 12 years. I love Mexico, all the beautiful friendships I have made there, the slower pace of life, the fishing culture, and the surf. Finally after all these years the house is ready to rent, and I am excited for the chance for other people to enjoy the house and surrounding area. It is hard to make a living in this part of Mexico, so I am hoping that through the renting of this house I can provide well payed consistent work, to my friends and family in Puerto Angel.
