Description from the owner
Casa Loma makes a great base for your Puerto Esoncdido activities. Located in a safe but lively residential neighborhood near the Lighthouse, it is five minutes walk from snorkeling and swimming at Playa Manzanillo, 5-10 minutes to the town beach, Playa Principal. Shopping is within walking distance, and there is a bus stop across from the house.
While not luxurious, the house is large and airy, with four bedrooms plus a rooftop bedroom, each with a private shower bath.

House Near the Beach in Puerto Escondido
Puerto Escondido, Mexican Riviera-Pacific Coast, Mexico
Additional Location Information
Puerto Escondido is a town of perhaps 50,000 but with the feel of a smaller town. A small fishing village until the 1970s, when its worldclass surfing became an international attraction, Puerto Escondido remains a relaxed place with a very Mexican character. There are no resorts, high rise hotels or golf courses, but there are plenty of reasonably-priced restaurants and a variety of beautiful beaches. In addition to international surfers, tourists are primarily Mexican and Canadian. The weather is very warm year-round, with rainier weather June-August, and drier weather January-March. Casa Loma is located 5-10 minutes' walk from Playa Manzanillo. The area is safe but lively, with a school and a small hotel on the same street.

What Past Guests Are Saying
fantastic value house in a great location
we stayed at Casa Loma for 1 week and enjoyed every moment. It's a great base to get out and enjoy the beaches and all they have to offer. The house sleeps 10 though there were only 2 of us. It is set in fantastic gardens and has a rooftop sun area with hammocks, perfect for relaxing in the afternoon breeze. The kitchen is functional but not elaborate and furnishings are old but homely and the photos show it to be more glamorous than the reality. However, its is still comfortable and if there are a few of you, it is terrific value for money. I did read that another guest found the noise unbearable from the school, we were there during holidays so found it very peaceful indeed.The best part of the rental is the Gina the lasy who hands over the keys, she is a wealth of information and really helpful. There is nothing she doesn't know about the area and its history, she even operates a walking tour. Take mosquito repellent and maybe buy some coils as the lounge area is open to them
Great house for family vacation
I've stayed at Casa Loma twice with my extended family (11 of us one year, 6 the next). It's a great value in a great location, near several beaches and the main shopping area. The house is pretty basic but charming, relaxing, clean, and comfortable. There are several large common areas including a rooftop terrace, the bedrooms are private, and the garden is beautiful. We would generally walk to the beach in the morning, swim, snorkel and have lunch there, spend the afternoon in the hammocks on the roof under the palm trees, and then walk to a restaurant in town for dinner or cook at home. There's a school across the street and you can hear the children playing in the morning, so I wouldn't recommend it to people who are sensitive to noise. The neighborhood is safe. It's a great price for what you get, perfect for a large family or group of friends -- I would definitely stay here again.
Casa Loma is extremely noisy!
If you are looking for a quiet vacation, this is not the place for you. Casa Loma is located directly across from the school playground of an open air elementwry school.The unrelentless screaming of the children starts every morning at 8am and continues without a break til 2pm, with outdoor after school activities and more noise and screaming til about 6pm. Before renting, the owner mentioned that Casa Loma was across the street from a school. She stated that "on Monday mornings there is a school assembly that is somewhat noisy, but other than that,noise from the school was not a problem". This was a completely misleading statement by the owner. We found the noise level to be intolerable. As we had rented for one month, and had paid in advance, we started to wear earplugs in the house during the day, and it was still an impossible situation. Finally, in order to make the best of a difficult situation, we left Casa Loma each week and rented hotel rooms , returning back on Friday night for a quiet weekend. This made our vacation very expensive. I am writing this so that prospective renters will be fully advised as to the true nature of this rental.

"If you are looking for a quiet.vacation, this is not the place for you" is how Ron begins his review." Coincidentally, when Ron called about renting and said quiet was important to his wife, those were almost the exact words I used to him. I said, "If quiet is impportant, this may not be the place for you, Ron." I went on to describe the situation in great detail. He insisted that they would be fine, but obviously they weren't. I'm sorry Ron was uncomfortable, but we were in no way misleading. It's a great house, especially for active groups and families. Very few people have complained about the noise from the children across the street, but we recognize that this is not the spot for people with an aversion to the sound of children playing.
We stayed at Casa Loma last summer and had an effortlessly reviving experience. This place is minutes (on foot!) from some of the most beautiful beaches in Puerto! It's absolutely clean and safe due to the watchful attention of a lovely housekeeper and regal gentleman gardener in his 80's :) !! The best thing about this place is the roof terrace with two levels of ocean-viewing bliss, two hammocks, lounging furniture, table and chairs and ample room to do your morning yoga practice or sip on fresh juice while sunbathing in privacy (read: naked). By the way, the kitchen is fully stocked, nothing special but absolutely fine. With the nightlife, seafood and tacos around town, you won't be eating in too often! But, if you do--Casa Loma is minutes away from the grocery store and many other small bodegas as well as a block from a cute, family-owned internet "cafe" (not a cafe so much as a room with ancient monitors and stiff chairs...which is good b/c you didn't come to Mexico to be online...right?) The design of the place is super cute too, with bright, festive accents. Chuck and Mary (the owners that you'll deal with upon renting) seem thoughtful and definitely knowledgeable about Mexican culture and Puerto in general. They're world travelers themselves and seem to earnestly want to make your stay great and easy. We rented a scooter for a few days and zipped around the countryside. I suggest you stay at Casa Loma and do the same!
