About Art Scherer
VerifiedVerified Art + Marion We are artists, builders and peace educators, both with an eye for fun and adventure. We came to Playa Escondida “by chance” in 2005, and within months had purchased land and begun building Tambien, a dream house in a dream country. Based in North Carolina in the U.S., we love nature, travel, writing and painting, yoga and new experiences with family and friends, old and new. Since we're not usually at our house in Ecuador, we encourage guests to "front load" your questions for us, and to inquire about our Spanish- and English-speaking "help on the ground" at Casa Tambien. We want to be responsive hosts, wherever we are, to make your stay the best it can possibly be.
Art Scherer purchased this Apartment in 2006
What makes this Apartment unique
Edit The space Cielo, the top of three floors in Casa Tambien, has hardwood floors throughout, a slightly smaller but complete kitchen, and a tile shower and bathtub. Cielo has some of the best views of the Ecuadorean coast, with a commanding 180-degree panorama of the cliffs that extend for miles on either side of Playa Escondida. Looking up, you see a beautiful pyramid roof constructed of tropical woods, bamboo canes, flayed-out bamboo, and thatch. The eaves of the roof extend two meters past the deck which, surrounds the apartment on all four sides. The kitchen, bedroom and living room are all screened in. Everything is hand-made: the exceptionally comfortable Queen-size bed in the bedroom, the bamboo and parchment doors, the two 1x2 meter singled beds in the living rooms, and the dining table on the deck. Locked storage cupboards for backpacks, food, etc. abound in all three rooms. Relax and rejuvenate.
