About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This is a beautiful, recently-built (2011) 3-story, 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath house in a private, gated community. It is only a few steps to the gorgeous, wide Pacific beach that runs 10 miles (20 km) from Montanita in the south to San Jose in the north. Enjoy a fun-filled, relaxing Ecuadorian vacation right on a beautiful beach among friendly, peaceful people, with plenty of amenities--and all this at bargain rates!

Olon is a peaceful little town 3 km (1.5 miles) North of Montanita, 183 km (113 miles) from Guayaquil. It is a 2 ½-3 hour drive by car/private transport or 3 ½ hours on the comfortable, air-conditioned express bus ride from Guayaquil international airport. The express bus terminal is 1/2 mile from Guayaquil Int’l airport (Taxi from Airport to Bus Terminal costs approximately $4.00). Olón is a quiet fishing village surrounded by a lengthy beautiful beach. A superb Sanctuary built on top of a cliff overlooks the sea and surrounding areas. Along the beach of Olón are a number of outdoor cabanita-style “restaurants” that offer heaping plates of daily fresh seafood prepared to your request (along with generous amounts of rice and fried plantains) and large beer for less than $5.00. Or if you desire, wait for the night fishing boats to return with their haul of 9” prawns to grill on your own barbie.

You can always stay in and enjoy breakfast on the balcony, watch whales when they come through, and watch the sunset over dinner! Concierge service is provided by our care-taker who can arrange tours and various activities such as surfing lessons, kayaking, scuba diving, horseback riding, sport fishing, canopy tour and shopping trips.

There are two small convenient stores in Olon and two fresh produce huts offering a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. Fresh-caught fish is sold on the beach. Taxis are on call day and night, offering low rates. Olon also has an internet café 3 blocks from the house. In nearby Montanita there are two ATM's, a bank, numerous internet cafes and many excellent restaurants. We have a guide at the house with our top picks and recommendations for restaurants and bars!

Third story master suite bedroom opens onto a balcony with 2 hammocks. Queen-size bed. Private bathroom with shower. Second story has two bedrooms, both opening up to a balcony with 4 hammocks. Both have double beds and private bathroom with shower. Bottom floor has one bedroom with two double beds. Full bath downstairs with shower.

Second story has sitting area equipped with T.V. and DVD player.

Downstairs: Fully equipped kitchen. Large living room and additional sitting area with stereo system (CD/MP3 player docking station) and a variety of books and magazines to read.

Landscaped yard with built-in BBQ, tables/chairs and outside shower.

Enjoy a fun-filled, relaxing Ecuadorian vacation right on a beautiful Pacific beach among friendly, peaceful people, with plenty of amenities.

If you tire of the peace and quiet in Olón, head on over to Montañita for its world-renowned surf break (peaking in December through March), only a 2 minute taxi ride. Surfing lessons are available for those beginners who want to give it a go. This is a town that never sleeps, the party is always on, and the locals and visitors alike are friendly and laid-back. Get comfortable; sip a mojito at one of the many international cafés and people watch. A diverse crowd from all over the world visits this town; musicians play along the streets, jugglers show off, and nightly fire-dancers entertain the many enthusiastic on-lookers. Montanita also offers a number of comfortable high-speed internet locations for those wanting to stay connected.

About Lanette Bumgardner

My family & I vacationed in Olon, Ecaudor in 2009 & stayed in a house in the same gated community as my house is now! I fell in love with this area & purchased a piece of property here before leaving from our vacation. I then flew back & forth a year & a half building this dream home! I wanted a place where my kids and grandkids can come every year to relax & enjoy!

Lanette Bumgardner purchased this house in 2009

Why Lanette Bumgardner chose Puerto Rico

The property is in a great, private location with breathtaking views of the ocean. It is quiet & the people of Olon are amazing! It is also only a 2 minute ride into the busy, night-life, surfing town of Montanita.

What makes this house unique

Private, gated community. Only a few steps from your front door to the white, sandy beach! Our house has all of the ammenities anyone could want or need while vacationing....................especially air conditioning!

Beautiful House in Olon

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five and really enjoyed our one week stay in this large house, very near the beautiful beach of Olon. All the rooms are well equipped and Bobby the owner makes sure that we do not miss of anything in the house! He gave us good advise too on things to do in the area. In short, we would strongly recommend this house to anyone!

Amazing! I originally scheduled 4 weeks at this beautiful home in Olon but extended another 2 weeks because I did not want to leave. The house is great... Bobby is great... the town is great... the people are great... excellent waves! My wife and friends also enjoyed. One of the best trips of my life and I will definitely come back!

Spacious House in Olon. Comes with everything except food!

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Bobby, personally built this house and maintains it as well. He is available in a moments notice if you need something. Huge open living & dining area, wonderful master up top and hammocks everywhere. 30 SECOND walk to the beach and 2 - 4 blocks to the center of the village. Great for beach/surf goers. Use the kitchen and save $$'s on your food cost. We surfed out fron everyday, ate breakfast and lunch at the house then ventured out for dinner. Try Eddie's Taco's while in Olon. The place doesn't look like much but Eddie makes a good taco + he's from California and speaks English if that helps you.

So, rent this house, but book early as Bobby's is sold out a large portion of the time

The absolute perfect getaway for our large family!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Olon beach, having spent 25 years in Ecuador, I found this beach to be in the top two in the country! The beach house? Absolutely perfect! Only a block from the ocean and everything you could need and more made our stay very memorable. We have four kids and even brought along some friends and there was room for us all. The house is beautiful, very clean and comes furnished with everything, even down to sippy cups and pack-n-play for the baby and beach toys for the bigger kids.

Bobby was very kind to make sure we were settled in and comfortable, thanks!

We will definitely be back, no doubt!

Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything a family could want plus Bobby is a wonderful host who takes very good care of his guests. This home is perfectly situated away from the confines of the big city, but only a few minutes away from all the amenities such as shopping, para-sailing and zip lining. So close to the beach and the view from the balconies are spectacular. Anyone having doubts about visiting Ecuador should definitely rethink their decision. I cannot think of a more perfect home or place for a family to stay. My family, including the kids want to come back here soon since this has turned out to be one of our best family vacations.

We have experienced so much fun here it is hard to leave. Grab your family, rent this house and experience the vacation of a lifetime.

Fantastic Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation here will be considered as one of the best on memory. This property is well situated and has all the comforts of home. I would recommend this vacation home to anyone planning a family get together. Plenty of space and very comfortable. Our host lived nearby the property and went out of his way to ensure that all of our needs were met.
