Property description

Penthouse consisting of the entire 10th floor, overlooks the Salinas Yacht Club and both the Chipipe beach and Salinas beach on the Malecon. Condo is approx. 3000 sq.ft. with 4 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths. All have ensuite baths, Three bedrooms have king beds, one has twin beds. Master has huge bath, jetted tub, large separate shower, his and hers vanities. Step out the front door of the building and you are on Chipipe Beach, the nicest one. Rent a cabana and four chairs for about $10/day.. Vendors sell food, beer, cold coconuts, ice cream, clothing, sunglasses and just about everything you didn't know you needed. If you're young at heart, rent a jet ski, go for a banana boat or raft ride, or rent a paddle boat. Walk the beautiful beach for your morning exercise and possibly meet other Americans and Canadians doing the same. Or just sit on the fully furnished covered balcony which is over 700 sq.ft. (15 x 48) and watch the action, listen to the gentle waves on the bay. June-September, watch the whales. Have your morning coffee there, even have meals at the table which seats 6-8. This building is located two blocks from the noisy Malecon, making it a quieter place to stay and no busy street to cross to get to the beach.
Every room has an ocean view, and for that nap time and at night, all bedrooms have blackout shades to darken the rooms. All bedrooms and kitchen have new A/C units which are seldom needed because of the ocean breezes. All rooms and terrace have ceiling fans. There are no TV's in the bedrooms.
This condo was totally remodeled last year to the highest standards, with granite counter tops in kitchen and baths, custom cedar cabinetry in kitchen which has more than forty feet of counter space with under counter lighting. The flooring throughout is Italian stone providing a nonslip surface. Kitchen is complete with refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, extra electric oven, microwave, five burner gas stove with oven, 40' gas BBQ grill vented to the outdoors, Insinkerator disposer, KitchenAid mixer, coffeepot, blender, extra refrigerator, dining table that seats 6-8, everything needed to cook and eat. There is a reverse osmosis/ultraviolet water filter system to make coffee and supply the refrigerator ice maker, so no need for large jugs of purified water or ice cube trays.
The living room sports a 75' Samsung Smart
HD /3D/TV with Blue Ray/3D player, and Sony surround sound system. Direct TV Total package is provided at no extra charge. There are two cordless phones for free local calls, WiFi.The building has 24/7 guards.
The laundry room has washer and gas dryer.
Just a couple of blocks away, there are good ceviche restaurants, shopping, and the town of Salinas offers a variety of restaurants, many of which are frequented by expats. There is a large contingency of expats in Salinas, so you are sure to make new acquaintances at the eateries and on the beach.
The property manager, fluent in English and Spanish, can arrange transportation to and from the Guayaquil airport, and for a nominal charge, he can take you on day trips to Montanita or other nearby destinations in his personal car, take you grocery shopping, cook meals, make a pizza or sushi. He will make sure your stay is a comfortable and enjoyable one.
This condo is not a typical rental, it is our home in Ecuador. It is fully equipped with most everything you will need.
