Holiday Rental House
This house's spirit is the essence of serenity. With 180 degree ocean views from every arch and doorway, with the caress of the ocean breeze and murmur of the sea below; this spectacular rustic retreat is the perfect sanctuary designed to revitalize and restore your sense of awe, wonder and tranquility. Casa Faro is a beautifully constructed 2-story (+ Loft) cliff-side dwelling, hand-crafted of tropical hard-wood & red brick over-looking the blue Pacific and close-by, off-shore rock islands. The house is adjoined by a half-acre of fruit-trees and surrounded by patios on three sides. Situated, right next door to Puerto Angel’s historic light-house, amazing ocean views greet you from every angle.

With 180 degree ocean views from every arch and doorway, with the caress of the ocean breeze and murmur of the sea below; this spectacular rustic retreat is the perfect sanctuary designed to revitalize and restore your sense of awe, wonder and tranquility. Casa Faro is a beautifully constructed 2-story (+ Loft) cliff-side dwelling, hand-crafted of tropical hard-wood & red brick over-looking the blue Pacific and close-by, off-shore rock islands. The house is adjoined by a half-acre of fruit-trees and surrounded by patios on three sides. Situated, right next door to Puerto Angel’s historic light-house, amazing ocean views greet you from every angle. Location Our secluded, end-of-the-road dwelling is situated half-way between the towns of Puerto Angel & Zipolite. It’s an 8-minute walk to the nearest small grocery store and main thoroughfare or a 15 -minute walk to the beaches of either Pto. Angel or Zipolite. Half of the ¾ km. road to the house has recently been paved with the remaining section still unpaved. For those days when the sea is calm there’s a steep trail just 1-minute’s walk down from the house to a secluded, rocky/sandy swimming, fishing or snorkeling cove (see photos). Garden & Orchard On the northern section of the property, protected from ocean breezes, we've created a terraced garden & orchard that contains over 50 fruit trees including: Mango, Lemon, Mandarin, Orange, Grapefruit, Pomegranate, Plum, Guava, Guanabana, Chicozapote, Anona and Banana. These fruits are seasonal and, when ripe, are readily available to renters (see photos). Indoor Kitchen Indoor kitchen is fully equipped with a modern, full-sized refrigerator, a 6-burner Stove with oven, a kitchen sink, a toaster, a micro-wave, a blender and a coffee-maker. The Kitchen includes basic cooking and eating utensils: cloth napkins, table mats, a teapot, flatware, knives, plates, cups, glasses and bowls including complimentary staples (coffee, sugar, salt, cooking oil, fruit basket Plus 5, 5-gallon bottles of purified drinking water). Refrigerator is also pre-stocked with various edibles-for-purchase including milk, beer, sodas, chocolate etc. Outdoor Kitchen The Outdoor Kitchen is perched on a shaded/covered patio to the rear of the house directly overlooking the ocean 150 feet below. This outdoor addition consists of a large stone sink, large butcher-block counter top, a brick wood-fired grill with adjoining traditional clay “Comal” plus a wood-fired clay-oven (great for Pizzas), a picnic bench, a hammock and a bar that connects through to the interior living-room area. Adjoining Downstairs Living/Dining Room The downstairs living room/dining room consists of an 8-person dining room table/chairs, a lounge area with a corner L-shaped couch plus a coffee table, a 'Smart T.V.' that is internet connected allowing for Netflix viewing. Second Story Bedrooms, Adjoining Sleeping and Lounge Areas The enclosed bedroom is located on the north end of the 2nd floor and contains two queen-size beds (the 2nd one directly up above the other on a window-surrounded 3rd - story loft). The third-floor loft-bedroom has wall-to-wall sliding doors that open onto its own private deck with dramatic views of the sunrise over the blue Pacific. The 2nd floor master bedroom is surrounded by large, round, center-axis opening windows with gorgeous views of both garden, patio and sea. This lower bedroom area also has a substantially sized 3- drawer desk and dresser for one’s clothing. The open floor plan is easily divisible into multiple sleeping areas. Two large mobile single sleeping cots are provided along with one mobile single bed allowing renters to customize their sleeping arrangements. The second floor also includes one turret-shaped section (more privately situated) which has its own double-size, suspended bed and an adjacent area equipped with two commodious hammocks. (Sheets, blankets, pillows and suspended Mosquito nets are provided for each sleeping unit.) Upstairs Lounge Area There are multiple hanging/hammocks/ hammock chairs, a couch, a coffee table and multiple benches in the upstairs prow-shaped living room area, again sporting spectacular views of the surrounding ocean 150 feet below. Bathroom and Shower Facilities The handsomely wood-crafted Bathroom and (separate) Shower areas are located 15 feet from the front entrance of the house along the front patio’s stone walkway. Due to Oaxaca’s arid coastal climate we decided it prudent to provide an ecological/composting toilet to conserve water. There is little resulting odor in the bathroom and none in the house. The bathroom is supplied with sawdust, soap, toilet paper and hand towels. The shower is connected to the bathroom but has a separate entrance and is supplied with its own towels. Both bathroom and the shower have beautiful and very private views of the ocean. More

This is simply one of the most beautiful locations and homes we have ever rented. We're talking about privacy, stunning 240 degree views of the ocean, beds and hammocks all over the place, a usable, beautiful kitchen and also basically a private snorkeling beach. This home must have been built as someone's dream home as the artwork, woodwork, brickwork and touches of love are evident everywhere. The pictures speak for themselves. Our host and guide(Luis) were super helpful and kind in helping us around to the local beaches and a boat tour. Luis was extremely reliable and helped us with our fledgling Spanish language. The home is not without quirks, especially for people spoiled by modern, wealthy-country living. The bathroom is a rustic compost toilet. There's no hot water, so showers are both shocking and refreshing. Almost the entire home is open aired so if it's hot you'll be huddling behind fans and finally as a paranoid US citizen it took me a while to get used to the fact that access to the home is not difficult though our host informed us that they had NEVER had a theft. As long as you don't mind these quirks, this is one of the most majestic homes you will ever rent. Don't hesitate!

Huge open space on top of a cliff with spectacular view of the pacific ocean and the lighthouse next door. The house offers a huge kitchen / living room space on the ground floor, two terraces overlooking the sea and rocks underneath, sleeping accomodation for 6 on the second floor with plenty of space to additionally put hammocks for watching the sea, and sleeping accomodation for another 2 in the gallery and another 2 in the second floor. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. The bathroom is outside of the building, with a spacious "outdoor style" shower as well as a toilet next to it. The toilet is a "dry toilet" to save water, which takes a little bit of getting used to. The next small beach in Puerto Angel is about 1,5km away, then the beaches of Playa Zipolite about 4km and Playa San Augustinillo about 6km. If you like a great view, lots of space and a lot of open air, this is your place to be. If you are very picky about having a water toilet and immaculate bath room, you might want to look for a different place. I recommend renting a car when you go there, since the casa faro is about 600m from the main road and the nicest beaches are a few km drive.

Amazing place, on top of a cliff overlooking the ocean. We saw whales jumping around while having morning coffe on the patio. Place is big and roomy, secure and quiet. About 20 min. walk down to Puerto Angel or a 5-10 min taxi ride to Zipolite. Pablo and his wife were super friendly and our taxi driver Chavelo took good care of us.
