Condo/Apartment
Directly fronting the ocean in Playa Sta. Marianita, 15 minutes from Manta. Wake up to the sound of waves, take a long walk or jog in the deserted beach in the early mornings and weekdays - quiet, peaceful, feels like in your own private island. Condo unit #202 is a 2-bedroom 2-bathroom apartment located on the second floor of Edificio Kite Beach. The apartment is ideal for a family with young kids or 2 people whose interests are the quiet enjoyment of the beach and coastal living. Partying in the apartment, playing loud music and creating excessive noise are not allowed (a recent guest had dishonestly violated this agreement, the police was called and the guests were escorted by the police out of the building). The building is in Playa Santa Marianita, situated close to Hotel Casa Blanca ...Directly fronting the ocean in Playa Sta. Marianita, 15 minutes from Manta. Wake up to the sound of waves, take a long walk or jog in the deserted beach in the early mornings and weekdays - quiet, peaceful, feels like in your own private island. Condo unit #202 is a 2-bedroom 2-bathroom apartment located on the second floor of Edificio Kite Beach. The apartment is ideal for a family with young kids or 2 people whose interests are the quiet enjoyment of the beach and coastal living. Partying in the apartment, playing loud music and creating excessive noise are not allowed (a recent guest had dishonestly violated this agreement, the police was called and the guests were escorted by the police out of the building). The building is in Playa Santa Marianita, situated close to Hotel Casa Blanca and located halfway between the ocean front cabanias (restaurants) and Casa Blanca, on the street fronting the ocean and the ‘malecon.’ Look for the sign on the building that says KITE BEACH. Entrance is behind the building. Transportation: Ideally, you need a car but it is easy to call a cab to travel to and from Manta. Costs $15-$20 (maybe as low as $12 if you can bargain). There is also public transportation 2 blocks away from the apartment in the form of a converted pick-up truck (called camioneta - painted white) that comes supposedly every 25 minutes, going to and from Manta and Sta. Marianita, but seating availability is highly unreliable. The ride costs just $1. Food: The apartment is perfect for the budget minded, so long as you know how to whip up a meal, as the kitchen is fully equipped with everything for cooking, but you need to do your advance shopping in Manta. Lots of places to shop around Calle 12/Ave. 16, where the camioneta makes its final stop. Also, once or twice a week a pickup truck selling produce and fruits passes in front of the apartment which can be hailed from the balcony if you want to buy something. All restaurants are open on weekends and holidays, but on weekdays only 2 or 3 stay open. Restaurants close early before dark. Beach: It is nice to take long walks on the beach. It is practically empty in the morning and feels like your own private beach. A small crowd appears on weekends, but stays empty the whole day on weekdays. On certain holidays the beach gets very crowded, with lots of cars parked on both sides of the street. Kiteboarding: For the physically fit, Santa Marianita is the place to learn and go kiteboarding. The condo is close to several kiteboarding schools. You will run into into those instructors as you walk the beach around noontime. More
