Canoa condo description

Playa Dorada is a new 6 unit gated condo development north of Bahia de Caraquez and about 5 km south of Canoa, Ecuador. The condos sit directly on the beach. Simply unlock the gate and the beach is there. Sitting on the balcony, enjoy the view of the ocean, the locals bringing in their catch, spectacular sunsets and a beautiful infinity pool which appears to drop into the Pacific Ocean.
Our fully air conditioned second floor, 2 bedroom, 2 bath luxury condo has a maximum capacity of 4 people and a minimum age of 13 years. The condo comes complete with a fully equipped kitchen, linens, washer, dryer, high speed internet, flat screen TV with DVD player.
Next to the infinity pool is a thatch covered gazebo complete with a large charcoal BBQ grille, tables, chairs and sink with running water. Enjoy the outdoor cooking with low cost shrimp & fish from the local fishermen or just relax around the pool and enjoy the sunshine and tropical vegetation.

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      Buses run approx every 20 minutes going north and south of Playa Dorada. Taxis are very inexpensive - just confirm the price before you get in.

                      The popular surfing town of Canoa is approx 4 km north of Playa Dorada where you will find many hotels and restaurants and lots of American style food including hamburgers, fries, onion rings and pizza. The biggest bang for your buck is the Ecuadorian lunches for $2.50 which include meat or seafood, rice, lentils, fresh juice and soup.

                      Going further north about 45 minutes, you will find Jama and the small authentic fishing village of El Matal.

                      South of our Playa Dorada condo, approx 12 km is San Vicente. Large bottles of drinking water are readily available here and the local market will provide you with all the fresh vegetables you could imagine for exceptionally low cost. The longest bridge in Ecuador now connects San Vicente to Bahia de Caraquez and is bringing better infrastructure to San Vicente. We expect the local airport will soon be servicing flights from the international airport in Quito. Bahia is the Eco City of Ecuador, has paved streets, wonderful restaurants and is a large expat community. We like to take the water taxi across the Chone River estuary and experience some of the great seafood restaurants within walking distance from docking. Manta is further south and at this time is the closest domestic airport. Manta is large industrial city with a shipping port and fishing fleet. It boast shopping malls and an American owned butcher shop.

                       

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About: We currently live near Calgary, Alberta, Canada and had been looking for many years at international properties. We were looking for certain criteria such as inexpensive living, infrastructure, medical and of course, the weather.

                      Why Canoa:
                      We chose Playa Dorada because of it's location and size. There are only 6 condo units so you never have to feel crowded in the infinity pool. You just cannot beat being right on the beach and the sunsets are amazing. We also liked that the developer was American and lives in a house on the next property.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Warm Pacific Ocean water, miles of beach to walk and bus transportation right outside of our property make this property location perfect.
