Our apartment is positioned right at the beginning of Chipipe beach, offering direct access to the beach across the street- see photos so you can see how easily it is to get to the beach. In the morning you can go for a walk on the beach or watch fisherman cast their nets, mid-day you can hang out at this nice beach and enjoy the sun, mid-afternoon you can head to the Chocolatera beach and enjoy a nice sunset and at night you can sit on the balcony and enjoy drinks with your friends all the while enjoying the salty breeze. Inside on the fifth floor you'll find the master bedroom with one king size bed and a private bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen bed, a bunk bed and a shared full bathroom with the third bedroom. The third bedroom has two twins and a trundle bed. All three rooms are equipped with televisions (DVD players, two flat screens, one CRT) and Directv Ecuador. At night you can hear the waves of the beach as they ease you into deep slumber- sounds cheesy- I know, but I need to pep it up in the first paragraph.
All bed linens and bath towels are provided. We provide blankets and pillows for each room. All three bedrooms are equipped with A/C. The main dining room and living room have ceiling fans. The kitchen is fully equipped (U.S. size refrigerator, oven, and microwave). The dining room table sits 6 with a bar station within arm’s reach.
After we sleep late, we spend most of our day at the beach in front of the apartment. The Chipipe beach has various aquatic activities from jet skis, paddle boats and the banana. If you prefer you can sit and relax on the balcony and enjoy the panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean.

For medical emergencies- God forbid- the Ecuadorian Air Force clinic is located approximately 10 blocks from the apartment. The second choice is the Ecuadorian medical clinic near the airport road on the other side of the Salinas Golf Club (which has no grass golf). The main, fully equipped, provincial hospital is located in the City of Santa Elena- about 30 minutes away.
Year Purchased: 1993
Why the Owner Chose Salinas: Our family has enjoyed this beach apartment since 1993. We are Ecuadorians who speak Spanish and English well and would like to share our enjoyment of the beach with interested travelers. This is the best way to see Salinas- in the comfort of a nice apartment in a relaxed setting. Get to know the Ecuadorian people away from a gringo hotel and live among us to a get a feel for the beauty of coastal Ecuador.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The beauty of this apartment is the beautiful view of the whole Chipipe beach area- from the Ecuadorian Naval Station to the Salinas Yacht Club.
