Tropical escape: 3-story bamboo beach house in Mompiche, Esmeraldas

Exuding the feel of open-air living, situated in the heart of Mompiche’s most beautiful neighborhood, and less than 50 steps from the ocean, this property is everyone’s tropical escape fantasy, made-real. Custom-built, multi-level bamboo home in the iconic ‘paradise lost’ fishing/surf village of Mompiche, on Ecuador’s northwest coast where jungle meets sea. Mompiche is the next frontier of Ecuador’s burgeoning surf/ecotourism destinations – the time is now.

Except for hardwood floors, this 4 BR / 2 bath home is constructed entirely of locally-sourced eco-alternative materials: giant bamboo, palm trunks, and thatch. Enclosed living space across the three floors totals 1,518 square feet (141 m2), with roughly half of the 2,056 square foot (191 m2) property’s yard dedicated to lush tropical vegetation.

Built by renowned bamboo craftsman, Dairon Cobo in 2009, this home has been consistently well-maintained, including a refinishing of floors and exteriors, roof thatch replacement, regular pest prevention, and recent installation of a new perimeter fence and hardwood doors throughout.

Options for this property are many: straightforward conversion to a charming beach hotel, your permanent dream home next to South America’s longest-breaking left wave, or the most coveted digital nomad co-op/escape in Latin America… buyer’s choice.

Motivated seller. Price reduced to $129,000. Wild west opportunity!
