Surfer’s dream: 3-story beach home in Mompiche

Only one property left! Priced to sell: reduced to $99k /best offer. We just closed on land in Mexico and are motivated to sell this one to fund the construction of our new home.

Exuding the feel of open-air living, situated in the heart of Mompiche’s best 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.

Except for hardwood floors, this 4Br/2Ba is entirely constructed of locally-sourced sustainable eco-alternatives: 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 occupied by tropical plants. Well-maintained since it was built by expert bamboo craftsman Dairon Cobo in 2009, 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.

Key highlights include:
• 2nd & 3rd floor views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding jungle
• high-speed fiber optic internet (currently 25mbps, soon to be 40mbps)
• strategic location for businesses
• suspended interior bamboo bridge with bird’s eye view of kitchen
• kitchen with tiled island & ample shelving, plus 2-door chrome refrigerator
• oversized A-frame windows in both 3rd floor bedrooms
• balconies on all 3 floors
• bio-digester septic system
• gravity-based water distribution system (well water)
• spacious dual shower in master bathroom, now with hot water
• covered car port with ground-level security system
• spacious patio with tropical plants; room to build/expand in back
• legally registered deed and all property taxes up to date
• recent improvements to village infrastructure: fiber optic available, ATM machine installed

*Please note that the all-inclusive “DeCameron Mompiche” resort is not located in the village despite its name; they are a 10-minute drive away in the village of Portete.

Address: Calle Fosforera S/N, frente al ‘Hotel Bam-Bu’, Mompiche/Esmeraldas.
