Great investment opportunity. This property is already rented for the 2023 tourist season.
Casa Luna is a 189 m2 (2034 sq ft) contemporary seaside vacation home located in a gated Canadian resort community on Ecuador's famed Ruta del Sol. It is a two-storey, three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath villa built to the country’s highest seismic standards.
Casa Luna is forty minutes south of Manta, Ecuador’s booming port city. The scenic drive to Manta includes a trip through the Pacoche rainforest, where you can buy roasted and ground organic coffee by the side of the road.
Casa Luna is also situated 16 minutes north of the oceanside cabaña restaurants of Puerto Cayo, and 16 minutes south of Pile, home to the world-famous Panama hat.
In the mood for fine dining? Try Bocavaldivia Restaurant, 10 minutes south at the Tanusas Resort. You may have seen Chef Rodrigo Pacheco on Netflix’s “The Final Table“.
How about some deep-sea fishing? Book your expedition at Rositatours in Puerto Lopez, a funky little fishing community 30 minutes from Puerto Cayo.
As with most houses in Ecuador, Casa Luna is constructed from poured concrete, brick, and cinder block. It is finished and sealed with a material called empaste, a calcium carbonate paste. Empaste is resistant to mold and moisture.
Casa Luna is painted with a special rubberized compound that can withstand the harsh coastal environment for many years.
Casa Luna is north facing and has large, easy-to-open, salt-resistant vinyl windows on all sides. It receives natural light from sunrise to sunset, and a cool ocean breeze.
The air-conditioned main floor features a modern, fully outfitted kitchen with granite countertops, gas oven range, island with space for dishwasher, refrigerator, and plenty of storage.
A spacious entryway with built-in closets opens into the well-appointed living area. There, you can relax on a new sectional sofa with media console and stream your favourite programs on the large-screen smart TV. The TV plugs into a wall port for direct ethernet connection to the Wi-Fi modem in the laundry/utility room.
Dining area includes a custom-built table with hand-carved and embroidered chairs, all made in nearby San Lorenzo. A sliding patio door leads to the exterior courtyard.
The laundry/utility room has space enough for a washer, dryer, and potable water cooler. There are two well-marked electrical panels and a switch than can transition the entire house from the main electrical grid to generator power, should the need arise. A 6000-watt gas generator is included.
Casa Luna’s second storey offers three generously sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. All rooms feature spacious built-in closets, air conditioning, and plenty of North American standard electrical outlets. Each room has its own door lock and key. Each bed has a new mattress.
Casa Luna’s comfortable master includes an expansive ensuite with walk-in shower, custom-built wood frame bed with hand-carved headboard, and matching night tables.
One guest bedroom comes complete with bed and night tables. A third guest/office includes bunk beds for visiting children and furnished office space.
From the second floor, a stairwell takes you to Casa Luna’s fabulous rooftop terrace with its unobstructed views of Isla de la Plata to the west and Cerros Paján mountain range to the east.
Here, you can prepare a full meal in the outdoor cook space while you sip an ice-cold beverage and watch humpback whales breaching at sea. Included is a Napoleon barbecue and bar fridge.
The rooftop terrace’s westward-facing walls are glass, so you can enjoy Ecuador’s stunning Pacific sunsets while seated for dinner.
The lot upon which Casa Luna sits is one of the largest in its community. In fact, this individual lot exceeds most doubles both in length and in width.
More importantly, as a single, you pay only one property tax per year. Annual property tax is under USD 90. There is a significant discount if you pay your taxes in January. Yes, you read that correctly.
The lot itself has been completely landscaped and surrounded on three sides by lighted courtyard walls. Within the courtyard is a custom-designed circular plunge pool, a deck, gardens, coconut palm, and shade pergola with bamboo roof. The pergola is well constructed, impervious to the elements, and supports two adults in hammocks from its crossbeams.
There are several exterior storage areas, including water shed, pumphouse, propane gas shed, and protected space for a large generator.
