The space is furnished with bamboo curtains and plenty of glass to let in light and give you views from the beds onto the nature preserve, park and Pacific Ocean. Please ask about our gourmet meal service too!

About the Neighborhood

The house is located in a quiet, quaint local section of the village of Ayampe. The house is one of the few that make up the one block long street; there is a big pasture that opens up to the beach directly in front of the house, an estuary that borders the north end of the block, houses behind populated by friendly neighbors and a few small restaurants on the other end of the block. There is a vegetable truck that comes to the house every other day with fresh local produce and dairy. And the neighbor behind the house is a fisherman with a variety of fresh catch whenever the ocean is calm enough to fish.

There are buses that pass in either direction on the Panamericana every 30 minutes. Taxis are cheap and I am happy to call one for you. That being said, there is no need to leave Ayampe; restaurants are cheap, cold beer and coconuts are a stone's throw away; produce trucks come right to the front door. There is a free medical clinic a few blocks away as well.

Nearest break at 0.2 miles

Ayampe is a powerful and punchy, normal to long beach break that goes right and left. It's a very dynamic wave which can be mellow and crumbly at high tide but punchy and barreling at low tide. All boards work well here. Consistency is year-round.
