One Bedroom, Desert View: A Tiny Casita in Mexico, Swimming Pool Included

March 1, 2017

Near a remote stretch of beach in the surfers’ paradise of Puerto Escondido in Oaxaca, Mexico sits a tiny concrete casita with a swimming pool, surrounded by a calming desert landscape—and it’s yours for £66 a night.

“Inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s Walden, Casa Tiny is a place to escape from society,” says the owner. “Enjoy a simple life for a couple of days, a week or a month in this minimal, low-impact, isolated abode.”
