Modern one bedroom, one bath apartment in a renovated colonial building. Located in the historic district, you'll be walking distance of the main square and all of downtown. With your own fully equipped kitchen, you'll be able to take advantage of the glorious array of fruits and vegetables at the nearby market. Shops, restaurants, museums, and public squares are nearby.

With easy access to taxis and public transportation, this secure, centrally located apartment is a wonderful point from which to explore Cuenca. The building also provides both open-air and rooftop areas for relaxing. Wifi, washer/dryer, and DirecTV are available for your convenience.

With one queen-sized bed, the apartment works best for one or two people, but a twin air mattress is also available.

                              Car: Not Necessary

                              Winner of Outside Magazine's 2014 Travel Awards for 'Best Adventure Hub,' Cuenca has something for everyone, whether heading to the Cajas National Park or staying in the colonial center of town. Cuenca has numerous museums, restaurants, markets, and architectural delights. Bus tours depart from the main square, and the biggest challenge is deciding what to do.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2013

                              About the owner: I live in the U.S., but enjoy visiting South America. Will I retire to Cuenca one day? Perhaps.

                              Why the Owner Chose Cuenca:
                              This building was featured in the New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/08/greathomesanddestinations/08iht-reecuador08.html?_r=0) as an example of colonial buildings in Cuenca being renovated on the inside while retaining the original facade. After staying in the building on my first trip to Cuenca, I was lucky enough to find out that one of the apartments was available.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                              Great central location, while being just far enough from the main square to be a bit more quiet. The building is secure and has friendly occupants.
