Note: This house is not for everyone. Crucita is not a resort; it is a small working fishing village with a popular beach. There are restaraunts, a bank and even private taxis; however, it does not offer the many amenities available in larger cities. Please read this description carefully and I will be happy to answer any of your questions
This is a modern house that was created from an abandoned pyramid structure. New tile floors, new private baths (modern), four rooftop terraces, and a private courtyard. The private home is a unique structure overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Furnishings are very sparse in keeping with the clean modern interior design but both bedrooms are equipped with a great king sized bed
The house is on a hill overlooking the town also. Its a short walk to the beach, and to great restaurants serving fresh seafood and local vegetables. However, the hill is steep and about 150-200 yeards long. A car is recommended for most
The neighborhood is in a gated preserve of about 15 exclusive homes and a restaurant and paragliding facilities
Crucita says of the neighborhood - "The conditions here are quite favorable for Paragliding which is a very popular past time in Crucita. The constant weather conditions make for excellent flying. There is a very nice launch site available which includes a restaurant/bar. A platform on the cliff side makes for nice viewing if you decide not to try flying yourself. Tandem rides are available and are very affordable. The scenery over the ocean and inland is spectacular and gliders are often joined by seabirds that are enjoying the warm thermals keeping them effortlessly in the air. "
Note: There is DirecTV available but you have great views of the ocean, the beaches of Crucita, the city of Manta to the South, the town of Crucita of course, and Bahia to the North
Cooking is by induction cooktops which can be placed on the center island of the kitchen or left on their cart to be wheeled out to cook on one of the terraces. A little disconcerting for some, but it is the wave of the future in terms of safety, ecology, and quickness
