About the property

Stunning Ocean View 4 bedroom home 2 mins from the beach

Casa Jacaranda is located on Calle Jacarandas. Now considered the best street at the beach, with many beautiful homes, local to everything and in the popular Playa Zicatela area of Puerto Escondido. With a 2 minute walk to the sand and the world class surfing Mexican Pipeline, and a 5 minute walk to many beach front restaurants and stores. From each floor of the home and the heavenly roof top terrace, you have full sweeping views from Playa La Punta (at the far end of Playa Zicatela) to the fishing boats moored at Playa Principal. Casa Jacaranda's awesome ocean views are also great for dolphin and whale watching from the terrazos. The home is decorated with a muted and tasteful decor to let the ocean view be the star of every room. Calm and cool inside, this entertainer villa was built with every thing in mind to cater to a relaxing ambiance and guarantee that you enjoy your stay.

On the first floor there are two master suites with California king beds and high end linens. Each suite boast a full private bathroom with beautiful Mexican tile. Both these suites are separated by the living room for privacy or sleeping late.

There is a beautiful in-ground pool with attached child's play pool on this level, an additional outdoor lounge area with wrap sofas, hammock, outdoor furniture, and pool loungers. Also is an outside tiled shower.

The living room has a recliner, sofa, video game and book library and is decorated with wonderful mosaic hand embroided linens on the walls made by the ladies of Chiapas.

On the second floor there are two more master suites that open directly onto the terrazo with table and chairs, and recliners. These suites also have California king beds and private bathrooms decorated with more of the Mexican tile the area is so famous for. They are separated by the large chefs kitchen and seating for 10 that opens directly onto the large wrap around deck with outdoor tables for dining.

The third floor roof top terrace is always ready for entertaining. There is a massive covered area with seating at a beautiful table hand made from locally grown wood for up to 12 people to dine, have parties and entertain.

The roof deck also has an open sun area and garden. There is a wet bar, extra refrigerator/freezer for cold beverages, gas BBQ grill, and also a half bath. So you don't have to leave this area often once you settle in for a relaxing afternoon out of the sun.

About Terri Kahui

I own and rent villas and real estate both in Mexico and the USA, some I have built and some I rehabbed it is my passion besides my family and dogs. I love to get everyone together at Casa Jacarandas and Casa Lily so we can eat, laugh, and poke fun at each other and really just enjoy each others company.

Terri Kahui purchased this house in 2005

Why Terri Kahui chose Mexico

We have been long time visitors and surfers coming to Puerto for over 25 years. Having traveled and surfed in many countries and islands around the world we came to Puerto and fell in love with the big waves, fun people and awesome local culture.

To us it has everything you need without being a tourist trap and also has a flavor that is an intangable feeling of well being, happiness, good friends and with a great local community. It's always fun, and I'm never bored here. With all the new people from Italy, Australia, Japan, USA, and many other countries, it has become a very cosmopolitan town because of the unique mix of people from the world over. The food is diverse, the languages many we love it and hope you will too.

What makes this house unique

I built this luxury home with the idea of taking advantage of the beautiful views of the beach, the surfers,and the storms that roll in off the ocean .

To me there is nothing better than coffee in the early morning and watching the whales and dolphins cruise by and watching the first surfers of the day hit the water .

We hope you enjoy this home as much as we do, it was built with love, the best ideas of Mexico, Australia and the USA. It has housed people from all corners of the world who are looking for something exceptional. Saludos ~ Maxine

Beautiful house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful with plenty of space for a group of people or families. The views from all levels are stunning, the photos don't do it justice! Inside is very clean and comfortable and has a full kitchen in case you want to cook. Terri was very helpful throughout the stay including booking and offering great local tips. I would have loved to spend more time here! Highly recommended, Casa Jacarandas is amazing!

Everything's just perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for one week with six persons and I have to say that it's just perfect. It is beautiful decorated and very complete in equipment. The roof top has an insane view of the whole beach and you see the surf from there. Also the house is very clean and the rooms are very big. We can highly recommend this property and definitely trying to come back as soon as possible!!

Simply The Best

  • 5 of 5

After seeing the pictures and reading the great reviews, I was so excited for my trip to Casa Jacaranda. The truth is, no picture or review could have ever prepared me for the way Puerto Escondido and Casa Jacaranda took my breath away. The views are absolutely amazing, especially at sunset. The house was gorgeous and very well kept. It truly is luxurious living at the beach. Every person on staff was helpful & extremely friendly. The only negative part of my vacation was that I didn’t stay long enough. Is forever too long? There are so many things to do and authentic Mexican culture to soak in nearby. I loved the feeling of being at one of the most beautiful places in the world, without being overcrowded or pressured into buying or doing things. I did spend plenty of time exploring in Puerto Escondido. However, some of my favorite memories from my stay are when I simply needed time to decompress & relax. I would float from the beach, to the pool, to the hammock, right into my comfy bed and let the sounds of the ocean and the sweet breeze sooth my soul. I am already homesick for a place I don’t live and cannot wait to return and share this experience with the rest of my family....... or maybe I will keep this treasure all to myself!

Do I have to leave!!! I wanna stay forever!!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Jacaranda was a dream come true, Luxury living by the beach, what more do I need to say. Personal Highlights; extensive views, amazing sunsets, daily swims in the pool, the resident kitties, deluxe ocean view kitchen, big cozy beds, good water pressure, I feel like I could go on and on, We just wanted to stay forever. The staff at the Jacaranda provided exceptional service, Anna was so sweet and accommodating, Norma's smile was a bright addition to any day! The house was well taken care of and felt very safe. Well worth the money! We are already planning our next visit - Thank you!!
