Dee Boshaw purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Dee Boshaw chose Cotacachi
I visited Cotacachi in April, 2012, immediately fell in love with the area, the people and the life style. The village sits in a valley between two dormant volcanos, the views of the mountains are a daily treat, always changing, always beautiful.
What makes this Condo unique
There are beautiful areas to visit and enjoy, many are pictured on this site, great resturants just a short walk from the condo, the indigenous people are absolutely a delight, gracious, caring, once you are a friend you'll have a friend for life. Great shopping for anything leather. We plan to retire there someday.

We stayed in this unit for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed it. The condo is in a secure and quiet complex that is right in town, but feels like it's in the country. The yard is full of fruit trees, a vegetable garden and is really nice to sit out and enjoy the surroundings. The condo is tastefully appointed with comfortable furniture, great wifi and even a smart TV. The only thing we would change, if this were our unit, is the mattresses. They were just a bit hard for our liking. A small price to pay for such a great living space. We would definitely stay again. The property managers were very helpful, even unlocking the unit within 10 minutes, after we locked ourselves out. Thanks Joe.
Beautifully furnished, very conveniently located. Very spacious, beautiful views. Very secure with beautiful landscaping, including a vegetable and herb garden. Jim, the property manager, was very helpful when we moved in. He showed us around the condo and gave us some good suggestions for what to do while we were there. The only negative was that with my bad back I didn't find the couches and chairs very comfortable, but my husband had no problem. The beds were comfortable, though. The condo was clean and well maintained. The jacuzzi tub was very nice to have. We would definitely recommend this property.

Modern Condo in the Heart of Cotacachi
We truly enjoyed our stay in this lovely modern condo in the heart of Cotacachi. The condo was clean, well appointed with new beds that were very comfy. Everything you could want or need was within a short walk. It was a quiet location even though it was in the heart of town. The permanent residents were friendly and helpful and became our friends. The gardens were well manicured with fruit trees and a vegetable garden we were encouraged to take advantage of. Security was tight and made us feel very safe.
The pictures of this clean comfortable condo do not do it justice. It is spacious and the decor is beautiful with paintings by local artists and the views from the second story windows are breathtaking.
The owner and management staff are efficient and easy to communicate with and do everything possible to make your stay a happy one.
I highly recommend this property to travelers looking for the comforts of home.
Great location but
Pros- As mentioned in other reviews the location is hard to beat. Just a few steps away from Leather street, coffee shops, and bakery all which are located next to the park. Complex felt very secure as did the town and the grounds are beautifully kept. King bed was very comfortable and the room darkening shades were great at night due to the lights on the outside that would go on and off due to motion detection.. It was also very quite during nighttime hours.
Cons- Unit can be very noisy from restaurants and car care place next door. Also while we were there the people at the two houses next door both had music playing from sunrise to sunset on several days, so imagine 5 different radios going at once. There are also roosters that on certain days seemed to never stop, on other days never really heard.
Biggest nuisance for us was that the Direct TV never worked and evidently is an ongoing problem so I would make them check it is working before arriving. Not that we needed every night but we did get pretty sick for a few days and could have really used. Also the sofas like a lot of furniture in Ecuador is not all that comfortable.
Internet: even though you pay $40 dollars for (not disclosed in listing by the way) was worthless so if you plan on communicating with family or friends or need for work reasons I wouldn't plan on it being worth much to you. This doesn't seem to be a Cotacachi thing as we met many who's internet worked awesome.
Before you make the reservation for flights be aware that they will not check you in past 4 pm, so if you have a later flight you have to find a hotel for that night I guess. This was not disclosed to us until after we booked the unit but fortunately our flight arrived in Quito in time to get to Cotacachi prior to the 4pm cut off.
This unit was in a super location. Very clean. All the immenities desired. Jim was very helpful and put us in contact with drivers, had suggestions for restaurants and tours.
Thank you for your review, so happy to hear that you enjoyed Cotacachi, it is indeed the jewel of Ecuador. I appreciate your feedback on the unit and that it met your needs during your visit. Much appreciated. Dee Boshaw
