Wake to the sound of birds and waves in this two bedroom beachfront home at "the Boca." This coveted location is a stretch of wide sandy beach on the southern end of the fishing and tourist town of San Jacinto. This one-of-a-kind area is comprised of a single row of beachfront homes that back up to a protected mangrove reserve and ends at the mouth of a river as it flows into the ocean.
This unique location offers diverse outdoor activities including kayaking, wind surfing, kite surfing, fishing, shell collecting, and bird watching. It is also a beach where sea turtles come to nest.
While the area has a remote charm, it is only a few minutes walk to small eateries serving fresh seafood and just a 15 minute walk into downtown San Jacinto for conveniences such basic groceries, bank with ATM, health clinic, and pharmacies. The Manta airport is 45 minutes to the south.
The property where the home is being constructed is a fully walled lot measuring 33 ft wide by 66 ft deep (10 m x 20 m).

This modern construction technique is proven to be earthquake-resistant, fire-resistant, mold-resistant, and pest-resistant (e.g termites, rodents). Moreover, this foam core insulation design provides exceptional insulation and reduces sound transmission.
The structural design has been professionally engineered to provide outstanding performance during potential seismic events.
A shading study was completed on the home and shade structures have been integrated into the design to maximize passive cooling and to minimize heat gain.
