Great place beachfront with pool

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice suite just few steps away from a long beach that neighbor a river. The place is clean has hot water, wifi, pool and everything is great and clean. Jim and Marty are great hosts and will make you feel royalty. I would not hesitate to stay at their place if an other opportunity would ever arises. Great value too. Oh I forget they also offer private parking for your car in case you be driving. The sunset alone are priceless.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Casa WF and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Jim and Marty could not have been better hosts. They were a wealth of information and their hospitality knew no bounds. The accommodations were delightful and we spent many hours cooling off in the wonderful pool. We highly recommend Casa WF. Wish it was closer to home so that we could go more often. Thanks again Jim and Marty.

Amazing stay, excellent hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed last year during the week of Thanksgiving - the location is amazing, right on the beach. The hosts, Jim and Marty were very attentive and available if I needed them. They introduced me to other Americans who were wonderful. The local town is a treat to visit and the dining is delicious. I'm going to be staying again this coming November, I can't wait! I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone who is thinking about visiting Ecuador or considering purchasing a property down there as well.
