My name is Sean Kelly. My wife Dahiana and I live here in Puerto Cayo along with our 1 year old daughter Mila and are directly involved with the community. Dahiana is originally from the area and her father was recently running for Mayor of the community. We also have a 20 acre organic farm in the area which you are welcome to visit with us anytime. We originally moved from Marina Del Rey, CA and you might even have caught our House Hunters episode. My mother, Sigrid Tidmore, is the property manager, and all of us have villas and live here on the property.
(Ms.) Sigrid Tidmore purchased this house in 2015
These are brand-new luxury properties located in a gated community with 24-hr onsite guardians and only a 5 minute walk into town. Cayo offers a small-town-community sense of safety and lets you be about as busy as you choose to. We have a small local grocery store, an abundant fresh produce market and numerous restaurants. Cayo does have a 24/7 medical clinic for anything typical. All in all, anything you need is offered locally. If for some reason you find something specific you need that is not available, it's a gorgeous and quick drive up the coast to Manta.
Puerto Cayo is uniquely situated in close proximity (20 min or less) to some of the biggest tourist destinations on the Ecuadorean coast. At the same time, it maintains a relaxed island-like atmosphere that is casual and doesn't leave you feeling like you landed into party town. You can watch the whales migrate off the balcony here and if you feel like fancy dining or big city tours, it's a quick drive away. No problem if you don't have a car, we can arrange a personal driver or there's a great bus system in Ecuador. Enjoy it, you have locals here to help you.
A beautiful, clean, modern vacation rental. Sigrid was a pleasure to deal with and always very helpful. The unit was large and had the most beautiful ocean views. We made good use of the clean and inviting pool. The gated community is made up of 7 units and was easy to get to know others staying there. Everyone was very friendly.
We stayed for the month of March and it was imperative that we had a car. There is no shopping close by.
A wonderful experience visiting as much of Ecuador as we could, including the outstanding Galápagos.
We miss you Soma, you were a great companion. ( the guard dog)
The villas are spacious and comfortable. The community is safe and secure with gated access and a guardian and property manager on site 24/7 to answer all your questions, arrange transportation and offer suggestions for great local restaurants, day excursions etc. We loved spending time on the 3rd floor terrace enjoying a cup of coffee or a cocktail and watching the incredible sunset. A lot of luxury and a fantasy vacation for a very reasonable price!
I recent stay here was amazing...Sean and Dahiana are fantastic and Cayo was wonderful. Will definitely be back soon!!

My wife and I have an organic farm here as well and work with the Puerto Cayo community. The local people are wonderful and will greet you with a smile and a sense of congeniality that leaves you feeling like you truly belong.
