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

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 – the time is now; word is out!

Except for hardwood floors, this 4Br/2Ba home 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.

Options for this property are many: straightforward conversion to a charming beach hotel, your dream home next to South America’s longest-breaking left, or the most coveted digital nomad co-op/escape in Latin America…buyer’s choice. On Airbnb since 2015, the property already has a loyal following of clientele (reviews/photos at Bamboo Beach Home in Surfer’s Paradise).

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

Prime oceanfront property in San Clemente with building permits

This is an investor’s dream: Prime oceanfront property in San Clemente, Ecuador with architectural plans and approved Municipality permits in place. Taxes have already been paid as well. But you have to hurry. The construction permit is valid only until September, 2022. Approval has been given for a 9-story structure that can be either a beautiful beachfront condominium building or a hotel, restaurant, and conference center. This is one of the last beachfront properties available in this popular vacation getaway.

This spectacular 1,528 square meter beachfront property has already been designed (two versions) by a multi-award-winning architect in Cuenca and includes 2-years of work getting full engineering studies and approval from the Municipality. This means a local or international investor or developer can begin construction immediately — a rare opportunity to cash in and build on this prime location on the Ecuadorian coast.

The original plans envision Edificio San Clemente as an exclusive oceanfront condominium, with 18 apartments and two penthouses. The two and three-bedroom units range in size from 107 square meters (1,151 square feet) to 190 square meters (2,045 square feet). Each unit has at least one underground parking space and a terrace with spectacular ocean views.

The second plan displays a hotel, restaurant, and international conference center. Detailed architectural plans and engineering studies for both options are available for any serious investor — and renderings for both options are included here.

Just steps from the gorgeous Playa Punta Bikini beach, the plans also include a 20 meter-long designer swimming pool, expansive green spaces, lush trees, and gardens.

San Clemente is a small, relaxed fishing village located in the Manabi Province of Ecuador, known for its many ancient cultures and archaeological sites — many of which are close to this ocean-front wonder. The village of San Clemente is strategically located just 30 minutes from the city of Bahia de Carácquez (Ecuador’s first Eco-City) and Porteviejo, as well as 30 minutes from Ecuador’s fifth-largest city, Manta. Manta … a city of more than 300,000 … has an airport with several daily flights to the international airport in Quito, Ecuador’s capital city. Manta also has good medical clinics, a brand new shopping mall, as well as first-class restaurants and hotels. Guayaquil, where Ecuador’s second international airport is located is a three-and-a-half-hour drive along the beautiful Ruta del Sol.

San Clemente has delicious local restaurants, full pharmacies, and small shops and stores, beautiful beaches and bluffs, and is home to the artisan designed hotel and spa, Palma Azul, with its pool, spa, bar, hammocks, lagoon, tennis courts, and ocean view dining in the lovely Cocomar Restaurant. San Clemente has also been featured in two “House Hunter International” television shows and is a popular beach resort for both expats and locals. Its proximity to three of Manabi’s largest and most cosmopolitan cities makes this beachfront property even more valuable as a weekend retreat, vacation getaway, or as a peaceful oceanside hotel and conference center.

As Ecuador’s coastal real estate prices continue to rise, this is a great opportunity to purchase land for your own development dream or to follow an award-winning architect’s plans and dive right in for more immediate profits. This beautiful prime oceanfront property in San Clemente, Ecuador with architectural plans and approved Municipality permits in place is listed at $330,000, negotiable. This is a rare opportunity to build a 9-story hotel, conference center, or condo building on one of the last pristine beachfront properties in Ecuador.
