About the property

A beautiful hand-crafted bamboo beach house perched on a beautiful sandy beach

Situated in the beach, just 1 mile from the quaint village of Mompiche, Casa Surf is a spectacular bamboo structure with 3 bedrooms (each with ensuites), surf side balconies, a great kitchen and breakfast bar as well as large indoor and outdoor dining and living areas. Kick back on a deck, surf the break in front of the house or stroll the 7 mile beach. Guests can book a horseback ride from the house, fishing charter or a massage a few doors down the beach. The possibilities are endless.

About Brian McCutcheon

We run an adventure travel company called ROAM Adventures Inc and offer trips all over the globe. We built Casa Surf after falling in love with Mompiche but realizing there was no where to stay where you could be guaranteed a clean room, get a shower, and be able to escape the loud "regatone" music which seems to stream endlessly in the down town.

Brian McCutcheon purchased this house in 2012

Why Brian McCutcheon chose Esmeraldas

It's 1 mile from town but world's apart. We have a spectacular beach and the best beach break for surfing. My daughter and I acquire this particular piece of property while on a surf trip of the coast of Ecuador. Since then, my partner and I have purchased two other properties where we are planning to build something to compliment Casa Surf.

You cannot drive to the property at high tide (as our highway is the beach) which has kept the development to a minimum and keeps the regular tourists at bay. The town can get quite noisy during the festival and holiday months but Casa Surf is always peaceful. Perhaps one day the village will encroach but that is not the case right now. The tide does force one to have to plan your departure day but the limited access is perhaps Casa Surf's greatest charm. That, and at high tide the best beach break surfing is in our front yard!

What makes this house unique

Being only a mile from the centre of town but having a peaceful, spacious house with beachfront and no noise makes Casa Surf a perfect getaway. It's a traditional style bamboo house with a few of the amenities of North America and a killer view.

Mompiche is tucked away on the west coast of Ecuador. It's just north of the popular Route of The Sun tour but less crowded. Our house is approximately 1 mile from the bustling village of Mompiche. The distance allows guests to escape the noisy festival filled nights as vehicle access is regulated by the tide.

The house comes with an onsite caretaker who is available for a variety of additional services if desired. This is a coastal open-air style beach house in a rural part of Ecuador. It's an authentic village and a spectacular location but not fancy. This property is not for everyone and I would encourage you to speak with me before booking
