About Owner

We are native Ecuadoreans who reside in Toronto during the warmer months. We are happily retired and travel to our beautiful Ecuador each year to avoid the snow and bask in the glorious weather in Cuenca.

We love it here !!!

Owner purchased this condo in 2014

Why Owner chose Ecuador

Why not? 😃.

Ecuador offers visitors it's gorgeous weather year round, it's extrememly affordable, food is fresh and delicious, air is clean and crisp, breathtaking sights, beautiful beaches and the people are friendly and helpful.

Need we say more.

What makes this condo unique

We looked high and low before purchasing this quiet and comfortable space. It has all the space we need for our visiting children and grandchildren when they travel to Ecuador.

The apartment is modern with lots of natural light and a fantastic view of the mountains. We really like the fact that's it's walking distance to just about anywhere, we are seniors and need the exercise.

The building itself is quiet and the people who work here are always super helpful and friendly. There's enough bedrooms and washrooms to house our family comfortably. Oh yes, and there's a Supermaxi right across the street. Makes grocery shopping very simple.

Lovely condo, great option for families!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely and comfortable apartment. My husband and I traveled to Ecuador with our two young daughters (3 1/2 and 22 months) and needed a secure and comfortable place to come back to and relax in, and the condo met all of our needs. It was very clean and well taken care of, the full kitchen was wonderful and well stocked with dishes, pots/pans and utensils. We moved around quite a bit on our trip and it was so great to have the condo to come back to with the girls. There is a little park with a playground across the street and down the road that was great to take the kids to on days we were laying low.There was some construction going on in the street in front of the building, but it was still easy to get a taxi outside, and it's just about a 5 min ride to get to the center of Cuenca. You can walk a few minutes to the Super Maxi across the street for groceries or any basic necessity as well. Monica was great, attentive and quick to respond to emails. The property manager Miriam was lovely and very helpful. We arrived late (around 9PM) and Miriam and her husband took my husband to a store to get some groceries that night, which was wonderful since we did not know the area and not much was open at that time of night. Miriam was so kind and accommodating. The condo was affordable and offered so much more than a hotel or hostal could have as far as privacy, space and comfort. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it, especially to families with children.

Lovely Condo in Beautiful Cuenca

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with our stay in this condo. We were a party of four adults and we found the condo to be spacious, comfortable, clean, quiet and well-equipped. It was wonderful to be so close to a large supermarket (5 minute walk) and many small shops. We spent most of our time in the city centre (Old Town). Old Town was about a 30 minute walk from the Condo, but usually we took a taxi which was very inexpensive. Monica, the owner, was a terrific source of information. Before we left on our trip, we communicated very often by email, and she very patiently answered all our questions. She helped us plan our flights, suggested clothing to bring and things to do while in Cuenca; also, she directed us to excellent markets and restaurants. The manager of the condo was very friendly, helpful and reliable. We would definitely recommend this affordable condo to our friends and family and would enjoy renting it again if we have a chance to visit the beautiful city of Cuenca in the future.

Owner's Response: Hello Barbara, you were also an absolute pleasure to communicate with as well. I feel like we may have known each other in a previous life! I am very happy to hear that you and your guest enjoyed our space and our beautiful, little, cobblestone Cuenca. It was simply our absolute pleasure. We hope you visit us again in the future and wish you the very best. Monica

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Ecuador. First off, what a wonderful country! We spent time in Quito and Guayaquil before heading to Cuenca. By the way, if you're going to Cuenca from Guayaquil, take a bus or shuttle through Cajas National Park. It was an incredible experience.

Anyway, the condo. It felt like home. Before we left Phoenix, Monica emailed us all of the details about the condo and a ton of great info about the area and Cuenca in general. I communicated with Monica before and during the trip and she is so helpful and welcoming. It all just added to this incredible experience.

We met Miriam and her husband to show us the condo. They are also so helpful and courteous. Interestingly enough we ran into them in the center of Cuenca and it was just like meeting old friends. The entire experience we had was just incredible. They are great people, very welcoming and accommodating. We had absolutely no problems whatsoever but I'm sure had we had any, everyone would have gone out of our way to help us.

The condo is perfect for a group of four-six people. Very comfortable. It has all of the features of your own home, just in this amazing colonial city. Modern appliances and fixtures and stable wifi. It's in a beautiful building with elevator. Beautiful views of the Cuenca area. Very quiet neighborhood and building. It's super close to all of the attractions and only like a $1.50 taxi ride right to the center of gorgeous Cuenca.

The Tranvia (light rail or tram car) is going up right next to the building. It will offer even more convenient transport anywhere you need to go.

There's a Supermaxi grocery store right across the street. Very convenient to pick up groceries. But I found it much more interesting (and cheaper) to head into the center of town and buy fresh fruit, vegetables, and beautiful fresh flowers at the mercado.

I really cannot say enough about this condo and our amazing hosts. My trip to Ecuador was incredible. And by a large part because of the hospitality extended to us in Cuenca. I appreciate it immensely. We will definitely return. Thanks again for everything!

Owner's Response: Hello Abe, I am extremely pleased to know that you and your fellow mates enjoyed your stay in our beautiful city Cuenca. It was also our absolute pleasure to have you as our guests and to know that our condo suited your needs. We take great pride and extend our warm and friendly South American hospitality by treating our guests as we would treat our close family members. It's truly a wonderous city full of bustling, colorful citizens and tantalizing foods at every corner. Going to the mercado is one of my faves too! Fresh fruits, vegetables, soups, meats, cheese, chocolate, truly unbelievable. We'll welcome you back with open arms Abe! Muchas Gracias "Mi casa as su casa" 😃

Map

Car: not necessary

Loads of great food, sightseeing & shopping everywhere. Cuenca is very scenic, so a car is not needed. There are lots of North Americans, Europeans & English speaking people living in this magnificent city who will take a moment to help if needed, otherwise the Ecuadoreans are always happy to help.
