Thanks Peggy, it was very nice staying at your condo in your little paradise on the ocean, all as stated on VRBO. It was unfortunate all flights were cancelled due to Covid19 and we had to bug out early when a flight was offered. However, we have met lovely folks who live at the building and they were so very helpful during this time. I would very easily come back and stay again. We left another lamp for the bed side table so both can read in bed now. You were very helpful as well. Thanks LR
First Time in Ecuador
Property owner and manager were a delight to work with. Condo was very clean. Easy transportation outside the door to Canoa, San Vicente and Bahia. Other owners and renters in the 6 unit complex were very friendly and helpful. We even joined them on their weekly trivia team!
We were delighted to have you enjoy our "piece of paradise" and look forward to welcoming you again in the future!
We appreciated you letting us know of the problem with the faucet in the master bathroom so we could replace it for future guests. Thanks!
Great three week intro to Ecuador
This was our first visit to Ecuador, and probably will not be our last. The condo was delightful and very comfortable. Ideally located between Canoa and San Vincente/Bahia de Caraquez, everything that you might need is within easy striking distance, and transport is at a very reasonable cost. The views from the unit are great and very peaceful, considering the road is on the other side of the secure area. The sunsets can be spectuacular. The pool is a great plus if you are not into oceans and waves; great place to meet with other “tenants”, sit and relax and talk over you plans for the day/week. The ocean is not only a view but a great place to play, and is warm as you might expect on the equator. Beach walks were a great part of our stay, and it is easily accessible just beyond the secure area.
Graeme checked us in as Samia was not available on the day, but she was easily accessible and we did meet with her on a couple occasions in person and on What’s app and she is a wealth of information if you need some help.
All in all a great experience and a great value!
So glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Ecuador and that it won't be your last visit. It truly is a gem of a country.
We appreciate your patience during the pressure tank rupture and repair and also the cranky air conditioner in the second bedroom. We are right now in the process of replacing the air conditioner so thanks for letting our property manager know that it was being difficult.
We also thank you for leaving our condo in such great shape and so clean!
Hope to hear from you again in the future!
Two months at Playa Dorada doesn’t seem quite long enough. With the compound having direct access to the beach we enjoyed two hour walks daily while collecting many seashells. We were fortunate to see dolphins swim by, thousands of butterflies, frigate birds, saffron finches, brown pelicans and many other birds. The ocean is relatively calm allowing for swimming or an attempt at surfing.
The second floor condo is well supplied with everything we needed to make meals. The only thing we bought on day 2 was bedroom pillows as the condo’s pillows are in immediate need of replacement. We also made a makeshift curtain for the bedroom after learning the specially treated windows keep the sun and heat out during the day but allow anyone in the pool or on the beach at night to see straight into the bedroom at night if the light is on.
Although Playa Dorada is 12 km from San Vincente and 4 km to Canoa there is no need for a rental car as the buses run regularly throughout the day and taxis are inexpensive. Catching a bus is as easy as raising your arm outside the condo and paying 0.50 if you are <65(.25 if you are >65). If you want to shop at a large grocery store in Bahia take the bus for $1.00 and then taxi back for $8.00. A bus trip to Manta is $3.00 or a $45.00 taxi ride.
If you are traveling to Ecuador expect to communicate in Spanish as very few people speak English. There is a small expat community of Canadians and Americans living around Canoa. Drop into The Surf Shack on Tuesday nights to play trivia and meet some people.
We look forward to returning to Ecuador.
Thank you Evelyn & David for being terrific guests! And thanks for the heads up on the pillows, nobody mentioned them before so of course, they will be replaced promptly!
We are glad to hear about all the things you enjoyed in the area and that your stay was comfortable.
Hope to have you back one day to our "piece of paradise"!
Immaculate two Br condo right on beach just south of Canoa . Safe and secure Would stay again
Peggy was always responsive. Every thing you need for wonderful getaway at your fingertips. Spectacularly beautiful setting. Canoa is a fun town.
Thanks Jim & Sandra,
We are so glad you enjoyed out "piece of paradise"! We agree the setting is amazing and we are pleased that you found our condo to be immaculate as it is one of our primary goals.
Security is always a question from potential renters so I'm happy to hear that you felt very safe and secure as all of our guests do..
While this can be a very relaxing vacation spot, having Canoa so near does provide lots of diversions and is a fun little spot without actually having to live in the town.
You are welcome to come back anytime!
Busserne kører ca hvert 20. minut går nord og syd for Playa Dorada. Taxier er meget billige - bare bekræfte prisen før du få i.
Den populære surfing by Canoa er ca 5 km nord for Playa Dorada hvor du vil finde mange hoteller og restauranter og masser af amerikansk stil fødevarer herunder hamburgere, pommes frites, løgringe og pizza. Den største bang for din sorteper er de ecuadorianske frokoster for omkring $ 2. 50, som omfatter kød, fisk eller skaldyr, ris, linser, frisk juice og suppe.
Går videre nordpå omkring 45 minutter, vil du finde Jama og den lille autentiske fiskerby El Matal.
Syd for vores Playa Dorada Condo, ca 12 km er San Vicente. Det lokale marked vil give dig alle de friske grøntsager, du kunne forestille for exceptionelt lav pris. Vi elsker at fange bussen i San Vicente til morgenmad af Encobollada (tun & løg suppe), en utroligt fantastisk måde at starte dagen.
Den længste bro i Ecuador nu forbinder San Vicente til Bahia de Caraquez og bringer bedre infrastruktur til San Vicente. Vi forventer den lokale lufthavn vil snart servicering fly fra den internationale lufthavn i Quito. Bahia er Eco City of Ecuador, har brolagte gader, fantastiske restauranter og har et stort expat samfund.
Manta er længere sydpå, og på dette tidspunkt er den nærmeste indenrigslufthavn. Manta er en stor industriby med en udskibningshavn og fiskerflåden. Det kan prale indkøbscentre og en meget god amerikansk ejede slagterforretning.
