"My family of 6 stayed a couple of weeks in this great apartment. Great location and very convenient while still pretty quiet for being in a major city. You do not need to rent a car since it is in such a great location it is easy to catch taxi cabs but if you do rent a car you can keep it in the garage. And the location next to the park on the hillside provides wonderful views of the mountains, trees and garden flowers. Everything was clean and comfortable and having all the space made the visit very enjoyable. Mr. Miguel was always very helpful and friendly. We would love to return for a future visit."

There is no other place on Earth like Furio's Casa
"If you want to experience the warmth and hospitality that Furio provides - including his culinary skills - his spacious, homely residence (as opposed to a boring, clinical hotel room), furnished with his families antiques all the way from Italy. Sit back and enjoy the peace and quiet in the house and the perfect position of the pool and boat ramp at the end of the beach like garden, where you can sit sipping your morning cup of coffee and watch the birds, sea lions and iguanas playing in their natural habitat, then Furio's Casa is the place to stay.
I can also recommend you ask Furio for some cooking lessons. You'll have lots of fun and laughs in his kitchen and take home some delicious recipes and culinary secrets."

"La Casa de Curia is the absolute perfect homebase for exploring a bit of Ecuador's Ruta del Spondylus. The house is very comfortable and was ideal for our group of 5 (although it could easily accommodate more). It's location high on a hill allows you to take advantage of the refreshing ocean breezes, while being close enough to the beach to hear the crashing waves. And with access to a private and nearly deserted beach just a short walk down the hill, you might not want to leave the property at all.
Once you do get motivated to leave, there is much to do and see within a short drive. Montañita's party scene - if that's your thing - is an easy (and cheap) cab ride away. Personally, we preferred the more peaceful vibe on the beach in Olón, where a row of beachfront restaurants serve up delicious fresh seafood and cold beers at unbelievably affordable prices. Don't miss the ceviche de ostra sold from the little cart - it seriously doesn't get any fresher. One of the highlights of the trip was watching local fisherman pull up their catch on the beach while the enormous frigates and pelicans swooped and dove to get their fill of fish. Amazing!
But much more amazing than the house and it's incredible location are the people you will meet at Casa de Curia. Don Julio was incredibly helpful to us and I am so glad to have met him. He truly went above and beyond for us, especially when my daughter had a little surfing accident and split her lip. I was so worried that she might need stitches, but Don Julio knew just who to call (it seems he knows everyone and everyone knows him) and she got treatment within half an hour. I cannot thank him enough for his kindness.
I would simply add that you can book this house with confidence, knowing that you will be in excellent hands during your stay. We will definitely be back. Thank you Bernardo and Don Julio."

"Amazing! I originally scheduled 4 weeks at this beautiful home in Olon but extended another 2 weeks because I did not want to leave. The house is great... Bobby is great... the town is great... the people are great... excellent waves! My wife and friends also enjoyed. One of the best trips of my life and I will definitely come back!"
