Welcome to the CASITA DE BAMBU - A lush, hidden oasis in the heart of Ayampe just 3 blocks to the beach & sleeping up to 6 people!!!

Our beautiful backyard will keep you so happy & relaxed--lounge on our outdoor sofa, enjoy meals under the PERGOLA's shade, cool off in the POOL or tan in the pool's wading area, run around the landscaped artificial grass, play BOCCE, & SWING under tall, shady trees.

Completely private property all to yourself! Don't share it with anyone else!


Our private, green backyard is surely one of the reasons you will want to stay. . . Lounge about on our hammocks as you stare out at the wide, open area with artificial grass throughout. . . . Enjoy a game of bocce with your family or friends in our bocce pit. . . . Swing underneath the shade of our tall trees, looking up at a blue sky riddled with trees everywhere. . . . Cool down in our pool with a wading area that lends itself well to catching up on stories. . . . Lounge under the large pergola (with a large fan) while your family grills up some fresh seafood or meat on the outdoor BBQ.


Although the main house is petite and lacks an indoor living room, our guests tend to enjoy spending their time in our lovely backyard eating all meals outdoors beneath the large pergola with a light and fan. The main house's indoor kitchen does have a very small table with chairs; the kitchen is fully stocked with a fridge, freezer, oven, stovetop, blender, pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, mugs, etc. And if you enjoy cooking outdoors, we have an outdoor BBQ and sink ready for you to grill Ayampe's fresh catch of the day!


The master bedroom, located downstairs, has a King bed, a 50-inch smart TV with access to NetFlix, Prime Video, and YouTube. (We include free subscription access to NetFlix during your stay). The master bedroom also has its own balcony and exit to the backyard! A private bathroom with a shower, sink, and toilet is right outside the master bedroom on the bottom floor, with access to the kitchen as well.

The loft has a King bed, its own private balcony over the backyard, and 2 baby gates at the bottom and top of the stairs (though do note that the locking mechanisms aren't great). A private half bathroom with a sink and toilet is located within the loft.

Although we have now A/C into each room in the main home, you can enjoy the natural breeze by opening the windows or the 3 doors, which have screens. (Do note that there are a handful of bright windows in the bathroom & in the loft area that are fixed windows and cannot be opened. If you're sleeping on the loft, there's one window and the door to the balcony that have screens and that can be left open for the sea breeze.)

As mentioned above, the main home's kitchen area is small but well stocked with everything that you'll need to be comfortable and cook well.


We have a no frills, stand-alone mini suite in the backyard (see pictures) with a Queen bed where two people can sleep privately from those in the main house with their own A/C in the suite. The suite is not at all big, but it is comfortable enough to sleep in & watch TV, read, & enjoy the garden views. Right outside this mini-suite, we have a simple outdoor shower, sink, and bathroom.


High speed WiFi throughout the main home and reaches part of the outdoor area. It’s the perfect place to work remotely!


We have staff come 2-3 times a week to rake the yard and to clean the pool, (which is not heated but is generally warm during high season of January - May). If you’d like, we can also help you coordinate cooking, cleaning, and washing services, etc.


Our corner lot is tucked away on a private, dead-end road where you can drive through just to park your car in front of our house. The other entrance/exit is pedestrian only access. This is just 3 blocks away or a 3 minute walk from Ayampe's main beach, in the main part of Ayampe town. Outdoor lights illuminate the yard and can be left on all night (but please do turn off the pool light overnight as it attracts nighttime bugs).

We are located in the heart of Ayampe, on a pedestrian street, (one of the coziest streets in all of town), and just 300 meters from a mini Police Station.

I’m French-American & my wife, Nathalie, is Ecuadorian-American. We live in Miami, Florida, and we love to travel & eat well. Some of our favorite things include a good game of bocce & tennis, a lazy beach day, amazing grilled fish, French cheese, a riveting book, and homemade desserts.

We've loved the sleepy town of Ayampe since we vacationed there almost a decade ago. We purchased the Casita de Bambu in the fall of last year, lovingly restoring it into an Airbnb to escape city life and breathe fresh air, just steps from the wide, raw beaches. We hope you enjoy your time at the Casita de Bambu as much as we do :)
