Guestbook comments from the owner

This property is amazing, what a relaxing setting. Long beach with numerous shells, most of the time it feels like it's your own private beach. Inside is comfortable and spacious, nicely decorated and the hosts have thought of everything to make a visitor feel at home. The courtyard and grounds are beautifully maintained, and the pool area is a unique gem. Our number one favorite place to stay!

Absolute Best Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I admit to being a bit skeptical upon booking my first B&B for a vacation. I'm so glad I didn't let that stop me! This place is absolutely AMAZING!!

Our gracious hosts, Jim & Marty, were the perfect blend of friendly and professional. The rooms more than met our needs and were always clean and fresh. The bed was comfortable, and the rooms spacious. A lovely patio for morning coffee with the birds and the surf. A private dipping pool for those hot afternoon days when you want to just laze in the lounge and imbibe a cool refreshment.

Breakfasts were prepared to perfection with lovely little daily twists. Large portions and amazing tastes and textures were a delight to look forward to each morning. Ecuadorian coffee is also a true delight for those cafe aficionados.

The scenery was incredible, and surrounding villages were friendly and provided plenty of dining choices. The beach was large and, for the most part, clean and clear.

While our hosts had absolutely no control over these external features, they made an excellent accompaniment to Casa WF. I'm not sure whether they accented our experience at Casa WF, or if it's the other way around. If you want to stay somewhere on the central coast of Ecuador and you're looking for a quality experience without the crowds and noise of a typical resort, THIS is the place to be. You will leave here feeling rested, pampered, and spoiled for any other experience. Thank you Marty and Jim!
