An introduction to Casa Leria

How would you describe Casa Leria in a nutshell?

Casa Leria is a luxury beachfront property on Oaxaca’s Pacific Coast that was designed and built by the award-winning architect, Alberto Calleja. Offering amazing ocean views, it sits within the grounds of an ecological reserve, which is home to a wide variety of wildlife and miles of pristine beaches. The entire property was handcrafted with organic elements native to the Puerto Escondido region.

What is the story behind Casa Leria, what was your inspiration to create it?

There are several reasons why Oaxaca is special to us. Not only does it have an amazing culture, traditions, history, food and natural beauty but we have close family links to the region. For me (and now for my family), Oaxaca has been a second home since childhood. 

Four years ago, while visiting Puerto Escondido to celebrate my wife’s birthday, we decided to look for a special place to build a house for family and friends. We never thought that we would find such an amazing location. Shortly after, we were introduced to Alberto Calleja, who is an outstanding architect and has built several houses in Puerto Escondido (including his own). He perfectly understood our tastes and needs. 

Today, we are happy to share our home with people who also appreciate nature, architecture and design.

How would you describe the atmosphere and architecture of Casa Leria?

Casa Leria is a unique project that combines contemporary architecture and design with nature. The geometric elements of the property smoothly interact with the local environment, including its diverse vegetation. Based on a Japanese construction technique that creates a unique and clean feeling of minimalism, Casa Leria is simple yet sophisticated.

To you personally, what is so special about Casa Leria?

Its unique location, detailed architecture and design, all of which is embedded in an astonishing beachfront environment.

Casa Leria reviews

5 of 5 stars
Verfied Welcome Beyond stay
Incredible house, wonderful hosts, best staff. The food and drinks were the best we have had in Mexico and everybody involved was such a delight. The architecture and design of this beachfront property was evidently made with a lot of thought and fine taste - you could feel the love that was put into creating this slice of paradise. After spending 8 wonderful days here, our group of 10 went home to our separate countries, each feeling recharged and ready to take on life again.
Bravo! We will be back.

The location of Casa Leria

Casa Leria is surrounded by mango, papaya, and palm fields on Oaxaca’s Pacific Coast. This exclusive beachfront property is a 30 minutes drive from Puerto Escondido International Airport and 25 minutes from Puerto Escondido.

I would describe Puerto Escondido as a laidback Mexican surfing and fishing town, with unspoiled beaches, oceanfront bars and restaurants serving seafood and international cuisine. Puerto Escondido has recently become a hub for art, architecture and design, and hosts several music and movie festivals throughout the year. 

When is the best time to visit Oaxaca?
