Canoa, San Vicente, Manabí, Ecuador
Beachfront in Canoa? Yes you can!! . If your ideal retirement plan, new home, or vacation destination is a palm tree lined expansive white sand virgin-beach then look no further. This large family compound offers privacy, space, room for expansion and a most impressive beach experience. . A true entertainer's dream, this property is often called the "Secret Garden" as it cannot be seen from the road nor easily visible from the beach with the coconut tree grove. Canoa offers one of only two white sand beaches in Ecuador and this property is in the perfect location, all of a short 10 minute walk to the main village of Canoa or a 2 minute drive. Known for its world class surfing, paragliding and hang-gliding, Canoa offers something for everyone: a true tropical paradise. . There are several outbuildings on this majestic property that create an atmosphere of harmony and tranquility while sharing the beautifully maintained grounds and outdoor space. Beautifully maintained tropical grounds with mature trees and foliage. . The main residence is an enchanting 2 story home showcasing extensive curved windows throughout. The attention to detail is evident from the moment you step in. There is a main entrance into the foyer area as well as a second back entrance through the kitchen. You enter through the main door into a large living space flanked by windows offering nice light and breezes. Continue on into the open dining / kitchen area where there is plenty of space for entertaining and concocting delectable dishes. Off to the side is a full bathroom as further down the hall, a large bedroom which is currently doubling as an office space. . To head upstairs you climb a most unique and elaborate wooden spiral staircase whose detailed carvings and intricacies have you mesmerized while ascending. At the foot of the stairs you see these two amazing matching doors which have the same craftmanship as the staircase. The door to the left leads you to a very large bedroom with windows in every direction. There is even a small Juliet balcony over the pool. The other door, to the right of the staircase, is the entrance to a most pleasantly surprising master suite: enormous space with high beamed ceilings, a large walk-in closet leading to an even larger master bathroom. Windows abound here as well but the showcase feature are the double French doors that open out to a large balcony with views of that palm-lined beach. It is amazing to hear the ocean waves from this Suite as you sleep. .
Outside to the left of the main residence is the fantastic pool area (with 9-foot deep-end!!) which has plenty of outdoor seating both covered and not, as well as a tiki-bar and outdoor bathroom. . The second outbuilding is a guest building featuring 2 completely independent suites comprised each of a large bedroom, with its spacious closet, a small sitting area, clever window treatments and full bathroom. There are high wooden planked ceilings and air conditioning. The lovely décor is rustic and appropriate for beach life. Attached to this building is a covered patio area which includes a large dining table as well as smaller area for games or reading. There is an outdoor kitchen with BBQ. . Continuing down the path you come to the latest structure to be added to the property which is a stand-alone guest "Casita" (tiny-home) enclosed with bamboo fencing for added privacy. Complete with full kitchen, bedroom, air conditioning, wardrobe area, full bathroom with oversized shower, and covered outdoor patio, this is a wonderful option for overflow guests or renters who wish to be away from the main residence. . The property also features a covered carport for 2 vehicles plus additional parking on-site for up to 4 more vehicles. The covered garage is in the back part of the property however the current use is for storage and workshop. There is a laundry facility inside this area as well. . The most interesting part of this property is the part that you can not see from inside walls. It is the back half of this estate. The entire property runs from beach to road and in the back are 2 separate lots which could be subdivided and sold. Currently this secured area serves as a second driveway and parking area which can accomodate large buses, trucks and up to 25 vehicles. A completely un-developed parcel of land. Unlimited potential here for expansion, development or preservation. The possibilities are unlimited. . There are almost no residential beach-front properties over 1 acre in this area, and none currently for sale. Most undoubtedly the most unique beach-front property on the central coast. .
