Mexico's Casa Volta Could Be The World's Greatest Surf Airbnb
Surfers spend a long time in 'the search' for the ultimate surfing experience. Rip Curl have been a marketing campaign out of it for the last 20 years.
It's a search that's taken many surfers to many remote places around the world, from the warm waters of Indonesia to the frigid coasts of the Arctic — and if the magazines are to be believed, there's no lifestyle quite like it. So much so that we're kind of desensitised to the idea of tropical water, steamers, and palm tree-lines backgrounds.
But we have to admit that this spot, nestled on Mexico's Puerto Escondido coast and now up on Airbnb, got us reaching for our phones to book it immediately. A remote, self-sufficient lodge in the state of Oaxaca, it's situated walking distance from a remote stretch of beach a little way up from Puerto Escondido's main town.
The stretch of coast was named one of The New York Times' top destinations of 2017, too, however it's not a walk in the park to get to, sitting roughly halfway between Mexico City and its southern border with Guatemala. What you'll get when you get there, however, is a coastal retreat that's pretty much secluded from the rest of the public and one of Mexico's best surf breaks entirely to yourself.
According to the Airbnb listing, the lodge is fit to house 4 people comfortably for a stay, built of two lodges designed by renowned architectural firm Ambrosietchegaray. "The house responds to the organic mix between partitions of the local region and the vegetation that surrounds it," the description reads.
"Casa Volta was born as inspiration of the old Italian vaults that invites to a fresh space under them," the owners continue. "This allows us to have a fresh and cozy house where you can spend some spectacular days on the beach."
You can book a stay at the Casa Volta now for roughly $260 per night, which is a bit of a steal if you ask us. Prices do change with the seasons, but it's Mexico, so you're likely going to get pretty good surf weather year round.
