Feel like you're on the edge of the world in your own private paradise by the sea. This two bedroom, one bathroom serene hideaway–surrounded by gardens with fruit trees, flowers and shady nooks for reading or meditation–is just five minutes from the fishing village of Puerto Angel Oaxaca.

The space
Watch turquoise and blue waves swirl around the ancient rocky cliffs. Enjoy the exuberant flowers in a lush, multi-tiered garden with coco palms and fruit trees. Witness stunning sunsets, a dark night sky full of stars. From your perch in a comfy chair, hammock or even from your own bed, gaze out to sea at the lights of tiny fishing boats bobbing in the bay.

Make friends with the animals who wander the property (iguanas, birds, sea crabs). Put your toes in a Pacific tide pool or sunbathe on smooth giant boulders below the house. The private stairs to get there are not for the faint of heart but the world there to discover is totally private and worth the effort!.

Walk or arrange a ride down the hill to enjoy seafood or other local fare from a nearby restaurant. Cook yourself a great meal in a fully equipped kitchen. Or after a day at one of the magnificent beaches in the area, all within 15-20 minutes from the villa, unwind on the veranda and watch the Pelicans glide by or stretch out in one of various hammocks. Connect or work remotely as much (or as little) as you like on the villa's secure wifi network.

Enter and exit the property through a private, secure front gate at the top of the hill. Now accessed easily by car or motorbike on a smooth, newly paved road.

The villa comfortably sleeps six with two separate bedrooms and a fold-out futon in the large, open living-room space that offers a kitchen, living room and a large walk in security closet.

The palm thatched, open-air Palapa Bedroom occupies the entire upstairs floor of the main casa. Sleep soundly with sea sounds and breezes, under a large light as a feather mosquitero over a new KING SIZE bed ( as suggested by our guests.) Enjoy the highest ocean view on the property from the large hammock or the two rocking chairs that are paired with a beautifully handcrafted, raw-wood table. Yes you can see the whales and dolphins right before your eyes for many months from this perch.

The second, large screened-in Cabana Bedroom is just a few steps down the path from the main house–where you'll find another Queen size bed, a wardrobe, night stand and a sitting hammock that overlooks beautiful tide pools in the rocks and the Pacific beyond.

Located between the bedrooms, just steps from each one, is the traditional casa de baño with shower, eco toilet as well as a washing machine and clothes line for your convenience. To bathe in an open yet completely private shower looking out over fruit trees and coco palms and the Pacific just might become one of your fondest memories.

Cliffside Villa is the perfect spot for nature lovers, writers, photographers, digital nomads or city slickers looking for a peaceful, serene slice of paradise on the Oaxacan Coast.

Where you’ll be

Puerto Ángel, Oaxaca, Mexico

The Barrio, Punta Bañada is very very quiet. Still not many houses at all ... except for a condo down the road. It is quite safe to walk 5 minutes into town day or night BUT there are taxis eager to take you anywhere and we have a list of our favorite drivers available. Lupe is also quite willing to take you places for the going rate.

PUERTO ANGEL IS NOT A TOURIST TOWN BUT PEOPLE ARE HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY EVEN IF YOUR SPANISH IS RUDIMENTARY. A cell phone translation app is helpful and fun for those who struggle to speak Spanish. Oh yes, bring a good flash light. Always helpful on the road to town at night. Street lights??? Ahhhh sometimes.

Safe, rural, friendly!

I am a writer and I live permanently in Mexico and have for many years. I am a committedYogi I practice Vipasena meditation. I love this coast. It is spectacular and still relatively unspoiled. I'm a bit of a maverick, love to laugh and I'm endlessly curious. I have lived in Toronto, Montreal, New York City and Los Angeles... a bit of a vagabond! I have traveled a lot in Europe, Central and South America. I was born in the USA and grew up in Canada. I´m a Canadian citizen. I cannot live without music. I consider today the best day I have to live!

During your stay

The property is managed by Lupe and Lupita who will be keeping the gardens beautiful and the casa clean during your stay. They are happy to provide transport (at a cheaper rate than the local taxis), give recommendations, and advise, or even cook you a delicious Mexican meal (for a small additional fee).

I do not live on the property. I have a small casa de campo at Ranchito de Suenos fifteen minutes south of Puerto Escondido. My co-host, Heather, also lives in Puerto Escondido but is available by What's App or email for any questions or assistance. But trust me, Lupe and Lupita are angels! I have been a member of their family for almost 30 years. My home and garden is as much theirs, as mine.
