We fell in love with the house and enjoyed our weeklong stay immensely! The weather was absolutely perfect and we loved being in a private setting and still be able to venture out easily. We debated renting a car but could not have survived without one. We had an Alamo reservation from the Huatulco airport but the insurance Expedia offers isn't recognized in Mexico. We almost got a taxi instead, but Alamo helped us resolve any issues. The drive to the house is about an hour from the airport along a very nice highway that weaves through the hills. Edgar's directions were easy to follow and we found the house quickly. The only surprise was the access road from the main road. It is only partially paved with very steep hills and big potholes. Every time we came in and out we got laughing because it was so bumpy and crazy. We were glad to have the car insurance because it turns out we dented the underside of the car on the road somewhere.
The house sits on the most picturesque point of the cliff overlooking the ocean. The entire frontside of the house opens up for a huge panorama. The roof is also easily available for lounging and great views of the sunrise and the village below. We saw a glimpse of some whales and enjoyed watching the giant condors do acrobatics in the breeze.
The pool is spectacular and we had it almost exclusively to ourselves. From the pool you can see forever out to the ocean horizon and watch the small fishing boats come in and out from the village.
The unit is compact but doesn't feel cramped. The bed is huge and we loved hearing the ocean below as we slept. Note that the waves crashing in the night can get quite loud if you keep the huge folding doors open as we did.
The kitchen and bathroom are simple, no frills. Basic fridge and microwave, well stocked with dishes, pans and utensils.
We were able to get basic food staples at the market in Puerto Angel as well as fruit and vegetables. Restaurants were difficult to navigate for us. Our limited Spainish held us back because no one speaks English in the town.
We loved our boat tour from the beach near the Hotel Cordelia. Go the day before and make a reservation for the 6:30 am tour the next morning. We saw turtles, dolphins and loved the snorkeling on an isolated beach nearby. We loved our visits to nearby Zipolite, Mazunte and Laguna Ventanilla.
The house is beautiful and has probably been featured in some kind of architectural magazine. We felt very safe and were treated with great kindness from everyone. Be aware that Puerto Angel is a fishing village and is not a resort with fancy services. You will see very few foreign tourists and even fewer Americans.
