“A Perfect Ecuadorian Getaway”
Reviewed December 14, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This is a beautiful oceanfront house that offers a magnificent view of a sandy beach and the Pacific ocean. The rooms are very well appointed and comfortable. All in all, the house is very modern, well decorated and spotlessly clean.

The property has an amazing rooftop terrace with one of the most extraordinary views of the ocean I have ever seen. The terrace also has a jacuzzi which was fun for those late night hang outs. There is a security gate at the entrance of the community (none of us ever felt unsafe for any reason, but it was nice to know that security guards were on location close by).

Everything considered, I recommend this property to first time visitors and to recurring visitors looking to travel to Ecuador.

We are happy to hear that you enjoy the look and feel of the villa rental. You are right, first time visitors do enjoy the large amount of activities available to them along the Pacific Coast.

“Paradise. Breath taking. Relaxing. Unlike any other vacation.”

What can I say? Waking up to the sounds of waves hitting the coast. Whales in plain sight swimming in the Pacific. This brand new property was beautifully decorated. Excellent quality furniture. Every room in this stunning villa offered a view - the kitchen, dining room, family room, the ROOFTOP TERRACE, master bedroom. Highly recommended for a family or romantic getaway. Way better than heading to a resort - a different experience that I look forward to experiencing again. Thanks to Roch and Marc for helping us get booked and answering our dozens of questions. :)

“Relaxing stay with an unforgettable view”
Reviewed September 6, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My friend and I stayed here for a week in august after a long hectic month through the rest of Ecuador! It was well worth it! The villa was beautiful and super clean! Spacious rooms and open concept on the main floor and a rooftop made for entertaining and whale watching made the stay that much more enjoyable! And the whales do come frequently during the season! We saw them fairly close up most days we were there which made for amazing pictures!!!! The beach was white sand and full of gorgeous shells and stretched on for ages! Nice for a dip on the warmer days! Busing to other cities is doable though I would recommend renting a car as it makes it easier to get around! The community itself is still a work in progress but you can already see the potential of a great place! Wifi is bought for a cheap price at the store near the community gate where you can also stock up on basics before heading back to the villa. The property manager was great also, checking up on us and proving to be very welcoming and helpful! I would recommend this spot to anyone wanting a beautiful getaway!

“Breathtaking views from balcony and rooftop terrace...a must to all!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Traveled to the Mirador San Jose (MSJ) in April 2014 and stayed at Casa Primos. Co-owners, Marc and Roch, were very responsive the minute we inquired about their property. They followed-up with a phone call and answered many questions we had about the location and the property. In addition, they prepared us for our stay by sending us a package of things to do – ranging from excursions to a list of local furniture stores.
The property is located in the first row (Zone A, Lot 1-16) and offers the best view of the ocean. Casa Primos may be sitting on the best lot of the Mirador San Jose! The views from the balcony and the rooftop terrace are breathtaking. Did I mention the view from the rooftop Jacuzzi!? The furnishings are also very tasteful. The master bedroom is modern and clean and has a walkout balcony, which faces the ocean. The other two bedrooms have Ecuadorian bamboo beds which offer a nice local touch. The Property Manager told us that the Ecuadorian furniture was purchased in a nearby carpentry school.
In brief, I would definitely stay here again, even though the MSJ is still a work in progress. Since Casa Primos is located in the first row, the property is isolated from the noise and ground work from other zones. To all potential clients, you won’t be disappointed if you stay at Casa Primos.

We (two couples) stayed at Casa Primos for five days in March. The house is brand new, very spacious, very well decorated and well equipped. It has an awesome view of the Pacific Ocean from the kitchen, dining room, master bedroom and roof top terrace. The beach is great for walking or jogging. The water was warm and shallow for a good distance. The property manager and people on the MSJ site are all very friendly and helpful. It's a great place to relax. If you want to explore, we recommend renting a car for great day trips to Montecristi, Manta, Puerto Lopez, to name a few. There is however bus and shuttle service available from the site. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend to our friends.
