About the Property
Fully furnished, 3 bedroom. 2 bath, beachfront condo in a luxurious resort!
Put up your feet and relax with a drink on the 7th floor patio overlooking the bay with a spectacular view! Swim laps in the olympic swimming pool or read on the beach under the shade of a large beach tent. Play a round of tennis and then ride the waves on a Boogie Board.
Owned by American missionaries who live in Quito, the condo is FULLY furnished including sheets, blankets, pillows, washer/dryer, bath towels, beach towels, toilet paper, soap, dish soap, garbage bags, DVD's, boogie boards, tennis rackets and a complete kitchen with oven (rare in Ecuador), fridge, microwave, coffee maker, rice maker, crockpot, and more!
The apartment has three bedrooms--the Master has a comfortable queen bed, 32' flat screen TV with DVD player, and DirectTV service. The second bedroom has a double bed and a set of bunk beds. The third bedroom also has a double bed. There are two additional single mattresses (with bedding) that can be put wherever desired in the apartment to sleep a total of 10 people. There are also two complete bathrooms with showers, a kitchen, dining area and living room (complete with a 32' flat screen TV with DVD player and DirectTV service and a nice selection of DVD's). The condo also features a nice sized balcony complete with table and four chairs and gorgeous views of the bay.
The resort has a total of ten buildings which surround a large common area which features six swimming pools (one olympic, one diving, one child's pool, and three medium size pools), two large jacuzzis, two tennis courts with lights, one half court with wall, two full-size basketball courts, a volleyball court and a sand volleyball court (on the beach). There is a 24 hour guard, a small general store with basic groceries and snacks and a restaurant on the grounds.
There is an elevator in the building to get you up to the 7th floor and the apartment also has air conditioning available, although with the nice breeze from the ocean you may not want to use it! Every room is also equipped with ceiling fans to keep the air moving. This particular beach is so close to the equator that it is beautiful year round--with temperatures generally ranging from 80-90 degrees during the day, and in the 70's at night.
With chairs lining the boardwalk in front of the beach, outdoor showers, pool-side bathrooms with showers, outdoor tables and chairs, beautiful local flowers, plants and trees, and even live iguanas and schools of dolphins swimming by, para-sailing, banana boat rides and boat tours to see the whales further out in the ocean, and many local restaurants within walking distance (the resort is right next to the town of Tonsupa and 8 km from the larger town of Atacames), you will enjoy many new experiences while you relax at this beautiful resort.
To top it off, even during 'holiday' times the resort is not very crowded, and if it is not a holiday time, it will feel like it is just YOUR resort as you will often be the only ones at the pools, etc.
A large beach tent with 8 beach chairs is also provided for all of our guests--the concierge will put the tent out on the beach at about 8:00 a.m. and bring them back in for you around 4:00 p.m. This tent is exclusively for your use!
If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, relaxing place to spend your vacation, with lots of amenities and beautiful views and at a reasonable price this condo located in the Playa Almendro Resort ( just feet from the beach should be at the top of your list!!

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We have been living in Ecuador since 1988, and all eight of our children were born in Ecuador (our last is adopted from Ecuador). We are missionaries and work in partnering with national Christian organizations to do radio and healthcare with the purpose of sharing the gospel. My husband is Vice President and also the Executive Director for Latin America, and I have home schooled our children for 25 years now (and still have an 11 year old and 2 others at home). We bought this condo because it provides a wonderful place where we can get away from a very busy schedule/ministry and relax together as a family. I've also been known to bring the kids and the school books down to the condo when my husband has an especially busy work week--doing school at the beach is, well, pretty cool!!
Why the Owner Chose Tonsupa, Ecuador:
We bought this property after looking at all of the beachfront options in Tonsupa because the resort, Playa Almendro, has more amenities than just about all of the others, more space, and has been around the longest and has proved that they care for their property and clients very well! It's right next to Tonsupa giving easy access to restaurants and stores, and the beach in front of the resort is one of the widest in the area.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The Tonsupa area consistently has better weather than just about any other Ecuador beach. If you go to Salinas, there are times when you will need a sweatshirt, and the water is much colder at other beaches on the coast of Ecuador--there is a warm gulf stream that keeps the water on the coast near Tonsupa quite warm and inviting, and the beach gets deeper and deeper slowly--it doesn't drop off quickly! We love the people at the resort, too, and know they would be willing to help any of our clients with anything they could at any time!
