About Ray and Terrie Clark

We came to Ecuador in January, 22017 for a 1 month vacation and ended up falling in love with the area and the people. In March, 2017 we bought this condo and want to allow others the experience we enjoy in this area.

Ray and Terrie Clark purchased this condo in 2017

Orange, CA but really we're currently "homeless" and traveling the world

Quiet, relaxing stay in Canoa

  • 5 of 5

Terrie and Ray's condo was exactly as pictured and described and we loved our stay there (October 30-November 6). We have been traveling through Ecuador for six weeks so far, staying at accommodations varying from small BnBs and higher end hostels and were ready for "American-style" accommodations, especially during the long holiday weekend and we found it at Playa del Sol. Quiet and secure on a beautiful stretch of beach a 45 minute stroll or 15 minute $.50 bus ride south of Canoa (or 15 minute stroll south to Brecino, an even smaller town). The expats who live in the complex (and several other complexes nearby) are a friendly and caring group. The birthday bbq we were invited to around the pool and grill was fun as was Trivia Night at the Surf Shack in Canoa, preceded by a delicious dinner on the beach at Suki Bar (both American owned). The condo had very comfortable beds, pillows and seating areas, nice linens and bath towels (and towels for the pool and beach were a nice touch), the shower water was hot as was the bathroom sink water (usually just cold water from sinks in Ecuador!). We enjoyed cooking in the fully equipped kitchen and catching up on our Netflix shows on the flat screen television. Stocking up on food was easy with the large markets and grocery stores in San Vicente and Bahia a short and cheap bus or taxi ride away. And we found a mini-market with fresh produce in Canoa for last minute purchases. We didn't use the pool grill, but it was large and stocked with charcoal. And when we didn't want to cook, the restaurants in Canoa or Brecino were close by and good, with choices of ex-pat owned and local owned. We fell asleep nightly to the sound of the waves. A special thank you to property managers Diane and Tony who were so very helpful, answering our emailed and texted questions promptly, greeting us at the condo at check in and recommending markets, restaurants, bus and taxi schedules throughout our week's stay. We highly recommend this condo and location, the value is superb and we would stay there again in a heartbeat. A true find.
