La Gema Escondida

Playa Manzanillo, Puerto Escondido

Sleeps 10 | 4+1 Bedroooms | 6 Bathrooms

$1,500 - $2,000 /night

Named in Spanish as the ´hidden gem´, this oceanview Puerto Escondido villa is tucked away on a hillside in the heart of the city, offering stunning views over Playa Manzanillo, Puerto Angelito, and the Pacific Ocean. The luxury home lies within a gated community just 10-minutes from the city´s international airport, inviting guests to unwind as soon as they arrive to Oaxaca´s favorite beach town. Puerto Escondido is known for its laid-back atmosphere, amazing waves for surfers, and sunsets on beautiful beaches.


This private rental feels artistic and contemporary, with design elements that showcase local artisanal talent. Handmade furniture, textiles and ceramics decorate the minimal-white spaces, adding pops of texture and color to the Oaxaca-inspired aesthetic. The spacious open-air living area sits under a vast palapa roof with woven hanging light fixtures, while a long curve of sofa encourages afternoon chats, and a circular, sunken dining table suggests intimate meals with good company. Outside, guests are rewarded breathtaking views of Pacific blue over the pristine gardens, enveloped by swaying palms, coconuts, and striking cacti. The patio hosts an al fresco lounge, covered by the main palapa, with a beautiful free-form infinity pool in front. A stylish wooden deck lines the edge of the pool, ready with plush, cushioned loungers for soaking up the sunshine.


Five gorgeous bedrooms are individually decorated in tune with the rest of the property, with each thoughtful detail adding to a calm and uplifting space for resting. The two King and three Queen suites all count with air conditioning, ensuite bathrooms, luxury linens, and ocean views. Sliding glass doors illuminate the rooms and open to private terraces and balconies, superb for watching the sun go down.


You´ll be welcomed into a relaxing Mexico vacation at La Gema Escondida, with its panoramic ocean views and sounds of the waves crashing onto rocks beneath. Down from the villa you´ll even find a private jacuzzi, a premium position for gazing out to the vistas with a cold drink in hand. Grab the property´s binoculars for a chance to spot seasonal whales, iguanas and birdlife from a comfy sofa in the outdoor living area. You can also venture out, walking or by taxi, to explore the beaches of Puerto Escondido, as well as its shops, cafes, restaurants and nightlife.


Guests are treated to a daily breakfast and lunch or dinner, Oaxacan style, lovingly prepared by chef Antonia. A daily cleaning service keeps the villa fresh, while the full-time staff on site provides security. The rental also counts with a sound system throughout, high-speed internet, and Wi-Fi.
