Beira Mar is a comfortable and beautiful house in front of the beach and near almost every cool place in the area (Montañita, Los Frailes, Machalilla National Park, Agua Blanca Archaeological Site, etc).
If you are interested in experiencing one of Ecuador's great beaches without the rush, the costs and structure of tours and hotels, come to Beira Mar a beautiful and exotic private beach house available for daily of weekly rentals. The price of the house includes cooking, housekeeping services (not included groceries) and a concierge that will have everything ready at the beach (chairs, beach umbrellas, etc) every day. He can help you buy minor groceries and fresh fish when needed. The concierge is in charge of maintenance and is available 24-7.
The lady in charge of housekeeping and cooking is great preparing local cuisine with plantain and fresh fish. Having said this, Beira Mar is more like a hotel than a house rental given the fact that you DO NOT have to worry for preparing food and cleaning the house but it has all the advantages of a house rental (privacy, big and comfortable spaces, no pressure for schedules of restaurants, check out times, etc).
If you are coming with your family it is cool and fun place to be. The beach with a moribugy or surfboard is great. If you just want to enjoy the waves have fun. You can prepare a seafood barbecue in the bamboo/hammock place designed for this purpose o just relax and enjoy the breeze from the ocean at the beach with a cold drink. If your kids are between 2 and 9 years old, you can ask the concierge to display a couple of water games in the garden.
If you are coming in a romantic trip, sunsets and stars at night will be the perfect framework for your retreat.
Backing onto seafront, Beira Mar is situated within the Machalilla National Park, one of the few areas in Ecuador where you can find jungle habitat next to the ocean. From the bedroom one can appreciate a great view of 'Hangman Islet' of the Pacific Ocean to the west and the green tropical hills surrounding the Ayampe basin to the East.
Famed for its birdlife, ancient dry forest and pre-historic civilizations, there is no better place to enjoy a sunset than on the beautiful 4km deserted beach in front of Beira Mar. Facing west, the 6pm sun-downer becomes a kind of ritual!
Looking out to sea, you will be peering into the very waters where one of the most famous pirate hauls in history took place, when Francis Drake successfully raided the Spanish treasure ship that had left Lima, laden with Inca gold, silver and jewels. There was so much that legends recount of silver buried somewhere on Isla de la Plata.
Beira Mar is surrounded by 21,500 square feet of lush, tropical garden situated on 3.2 miles of beach front. The house has three bathrooms, a master bedroom and two additional rooms that accommodate up to 8 people. Just bring your swimsuit, and enjoy you stay. Peaceful and friendly staff members from the local community will take care of you while in Beira Mar and help you feel at home.
Beira Mar is located in a small and quiet town named Las Tunas, 20 minutes away from Puerto Lopez or 30 minutes away from Montañita. Nearby you'll find hot spots to explore nature and culture and enjoy physical activities.

Beira Mar is just the best place to be away of everything and feel that life is just better when the nature is the only one around you. Beira Mar facilities offer the perfect combination to feel at home with the service of a 3 starts hotel. Thanks a lot to all the people working in this place. A warm smile is the best service that you can find and the people working in Beira already knows this concept.

a very cozy place to expend vacation time , the house sits on a beautyfull beach meters away from the sea of the warm ecuatorial pacific ocean, its a wonderfull location for the many activities the area offers (snorkeling in isla de la plata,whale watching,bird watching ), the house has 2 service persons,the house keeper prepares delicious local dishes you just have to provide her with the materials needed bought at the seafood market in puerto lopez 15 minutes away on car,is like being in a little hotel for yourself and your family or friends.

My family enjoyed our stay at Beira Mar. The grounds and cabins are lovely and well appointed. The staff is sweet and very accommodating. If you are looking for a very very quiet and relaxing place to unwind, look no further.

This is a great place to stay! We enjoyed everything! the view of the ocean and the stunning sunsets, friendly staff, very comfortable beds and quality linen- towels. The kids enjoyed very much playing around with water in the beautiful maintained Gardens. The BBQ area is besides the beach, while you cook or rest on the hammocks, children can play with the sand and in the sea. We had a wonderful time and we will be back soon!
I almost forgot, the house is only 15 minutes away (by car) from "LOS Frailes" beach in the Machalilla National Park!!!

Beira Mar is a cozy and comfortable beach house on the coast of Ecuador where you can have a truly relaxing vacation. The service is superb and you can enjoy delicious local cuisine. Las Tunas is a small community on the coast of Manabi, Ecuador, where the beach is wide so you can run on the beach and the surf is great. Come and enjoy a great family vacation or a romantic getaway!

I am not exaggerating when I say that staying at Beira Mar is having a little paradise. The installations are comfortable and cozy, the garden -care and well-integrated into the environment, is a good prelude to a beautiful beach.
The whole family, my children and my husband, my mom, my brother and his wife, stayed comfortably and smoothly. Everything is clean and like people working in Beira Mar, the house is ready to receive visitors.In a holiday at Easter, while the beaches are crowded, we enjoyed sand, sun and sea to ourselves!
When we wanted other scenery, to see more people or eat well, placement of Beira Mar enables in a short time be on other beaches or in one of the best restaurants in Ecuador, "El Delfín mágico".
We all remember the great days always in Beira Mar.

We spent a fabulous week at Beira Mar, enjoying a vacation in an incredible
location. The houses are extremely comfortable; the lawn a perfect
playground for young children; the beach seems far away of any human
activity; and the service and food were outstanding. As a surfer, waiting
for the right tide (that always ended up in perfect waves) while simply
enjoying the surroundings, was an experience I vouch to repeat many more
times in the future. Luis Rodriguez

Al pensar en "Beira Mar", saltan a nosotros muchos sentimientos alegres y solo buenos recuerdos, de lo que llamamos "Nuestro pedacito de Paraíso en la tierra"
Es tener todo lo que se busca en un espacio...vegetación, mar, comodidades, alimentos frescos, combinado con paz, arrullo del mar y el inmenso cielo, que por las noches nos regala un espectáculo, que ya no vemos en la ciudad: la maravillosa luz de los millones de estrellas. Es el sitio para estar en familia, con amigos, solo, en pareja, no importa, porque solo se puede estar bien!

I travel for a living & usually do the high end, all inclusive resort thing for vacations. I tryed something different and was very happy I did...This was amazing since you are right on the beach and it boarders a state park area which is very private and remote. A couple hour drive from GYE airport with a car service, and you have great accomodations with maid service, cooking local foods, very clean, etc. We would have a big bfast and hang on the beach all day with grilling seafood, surfing, serious chilling out. The beach is very friendly with locals & just steps from the house and lawn areas of the property. There are also local attractions and a town to check out during your trip. If you are looking for a private beach area, nice houses & property, and enjoying the culture, this is the place to stay. Just shop for some beer, wine & food, and they do the rest.
