Matteo and Gabriele are your ideal hosts - friendly, attentive, and accommodating. Casa Ayampe provided the ultimate sense of comfort during my travels. Thanks to the down pillows, a comfortable bed, and views of the ocean from the bedroom, I pictured myself never leaving Casa Ayampe. There is also top-notch wifi and hot water. 10/10 would highly recommend booking your stay with Matteo & Gabriele!

I can't say enough positive things about Matteo's place. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and a very comfortable bed. There are three floors that are perfectly designed to make for a relaxing space. Ocean views and well positioned hammocks with a small library. The sunset over the ocean is magnificent. Matteo and Gabriella went the extra distance to make sure every need was met. There are also some bonus cultural/culinary experiences that you wont find anywhere else in the world...I stayed at Matteo's house for one month and it was such a great experience that I've decided to stay for an extra month. The town is very small. It's the perfect getaway.

Never have I been as close to life as in Matteo's house and Ayampe. One of the best hosts I've had the pleasure of staying with, Matteo provided us with surfboards, tips and advices, amazing experiences and a super warm welcome. The house itself is idyllic and with perfect vibes. The rooms are airy, with good showers and mosquito screen equipped. Brilliant surf beach breaks can be seen from the ground floor. A sensation of freedom, safety and purity unmatched. Away from the hostel tourist life, close enough to anything else we needed"

Ayampe is a must! This small town has everything you could possibly need (from yoga to jungle trail) and is a perfect place to chill. It is really safe and friendly. Mateo 's place is absolutely wonderful. Clean rooms, equipped kitchen, great bathroom, and an amazing view. He provides all the information you need. This is the one place I really recommend if traveling on the coast.

We had the best stay at Matteo's. We were a bit late showing up (sorry Matt!) but were nonetheless welcomed at a late hour with drinks and a house tour. The house is straight out of a pleasant dream and the people in it are simply amazing - friendly, down to earth, generous, helpful, and fun. The views and the surrounding area are breathtaking. My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer!
