5 Miles
Nearest Airport

Car: Not Necessary

We are 10 minutes to town so everything you want or need is just minutes away. Not to mention that we have a local shop or two within 1 block of our house. Restaurants are 1 mile away.

Directions via Taxi / Car:

Tell the taxi driver you want to go to "El Cebollar". This is the town (pueblo) that is closest to us, most drivers will know it, if they look uncertain, tell them it's just past the junction of the streets (calles) Aberlado J. Andrade Y Del Chofer.

As you're coming up the hill, you'll see a building on the left that says "Centro de cultural, El Cebollar". 1.5 blocks past this on the right, you'll see a "Pollo Express". Take a right turn immediately after the Pollo Express, the street name is Hernan Coelo Garcia but it's poorly marked. On that corner there's a little store with a "Claro sign on it, and on the other side of that same corner, there's a show repair store. But most importantly, just remember it's the first right after Pollo express.

Go straight, 1 block down, tell the driver to go slow (despacio), the rd turns into a dirt rd, and you're going to go steep downhill all the way to the bottom.

At the bottom turn right, you'll go past a building that says "Azateepa". At the end turn left. If you look ahead and up hill, you'll see our house at this point, it's called "La Casa Blanca".

Many people close to our house will know La Casa Blanca, so ask passers by if need be. If you can't find us, have the driver drop you off at the Pollo Express on Aberlado J. Andrade and I'll come and meet you!


Manager info

About: We are a family that moved here from California to create a new life in a new land.

Why Cuenca, Ecuador:
If you want all the benefits of being 10 minutes to downtown but all the benefits from being on 5 acres in the country that's dog friendly this is the house. Plus if you are interested in sustainably organic farming you will love to learn about our Aquaponics system and perhaps try some of our fresh trout and fresh vegetables.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
You can arrange to leave your dogs here while you go into town so its a B & B for you and your dogs.
