About Steve Egeland

We are Steve & Alissa. Our Ecuador home is a second home, for now anyway.:)...we love traveling and are looking to make that more frequent in years to come. We sometimes will travel as two or sometimes as four if our twin 17 year old girls can join us. We enjoy being outdoors, meeting locals and seeing the sights and sounds in our travels and equally enjoy quiet evening dinners at home after a day of having adventures!

Steve Egeland purchased this condo in 2011

Great place to stay in Bahia

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely, secure apartment in a great location. It is well equipped with just about everything you can think of in the kitchen! It does not have AC, however, there is a constant ocean breeze making it very pleasant. The balcony doors open wide and there are windows in both bedrooms and the kitchen. There were 4 of us, 2 couples. We paid an extra $10 for the water we used. The owner is delightful to work with. He responds almost immediately to emails. There are attendants in the building 24 hours (or so it seemed) and they are very helpful with directions, suggestions, calling a taxi, etc. Would definitely rent here again.

Bahia Condo

  • 4 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised with the condo. Had spent 5 days previously in Quito in a private home and this felt like luxury. Clean, had hot water for showers. Nice to be able to use a washer and dryer. Good restaurants within walking distance. Manager was helpful. Use caution with washing dishes. Make sure you use bleach to wash and rinse both dishes, fruit and veges. No air conditioning but a constant breeze took care of that.

Owner's Response: Hi Faye and thanks so much for your positive review. I am very fortunate to have a wonderful manger in Miriam look after guests when I am out of the country. I wanted to comment on the bleaching of dishes and veggies. I lived in the condo for two years straight and always did dishes in the sink or dishwasher with the water from the tap and never had an issue. I did and still do wash any fruit or veggie in tap water mixed with a few drops of "Kilol" which is an all natural pure grapefruit seed extract and is available in all of the local stores. Maybe there was a issue with the city water while you were visiting? Anyways thanks again for the positive and informative review. Steve & Alissa

This was a very nice, well equipped condo. We really enjoyed our stay. A beautiful view, close to restaurants. Easy trips to nearby beach towns such as Canoa. Owner very nice to deal with. Would highly recommend this condo.

The only thing is that we were charged 10 dollars for water when we barely stayed at home and 45 fir cleaning when the cleaning lady makes only 5 dollars an hour and we left the place almost ready for the next renter as specified in the contract other than that all was wonderful

Owner's Response: We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and the condo was all you expected. As for the water and cleaning fees. Water is a very precious resource in a place like Bahia and charging for only the water used is a fair way to help all be conscious of its value. It is metered right at the entry to the condo and you were only charged for the 2 cubic meters that were consumed as was laid out in the rental agreement as was the cleaning fee. As for the cleaning you may not know that we have window cleaners, as well as the maids come in before your arrival and after your departure as the condo can sit empty for some time between rentals and we want the cleanest condo possible upon your arrival. We VERY much appreciate your leaving it in a very clean condition on your departure, but we always do and always will bring in the maids right after all departures. Thanks again for staying with us and we do hope to see you again one day.
