  • A perfect home base on Santa Cruz!

    "My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed four nights at the Torre Mar in late May of 2016. Donna and John were terrific from the first contact through finding us the best way back to the Baltra airport. They even arranged for our driver to stop at some of the attractions in the highlands on our way into Puerto Ayora! We found everything to be as advertised. We loved the rooftop terrace for grilling and dining on fresh local seafood or getting to socialize with some of the other guests in the evenings. The views were fantastic! We loved the central, neighborhood location. It was a short walk to Charles Darwin Avenue, a bakery, the Saturday market, the popular outdoor "restaurant street", and the head of the trail to Tortuga Bay! The truck-taxis are certainly abundant, but we enjoyed walking. The beds were very comfortable, and having separate remote controlled air conditioning for each bedroom was a definite plus. For two families with children, both second floor apartments would be a nice setup. We would definitely go back!"

  • Exactly What You're Looking For!

    "What type of vacation meets you needs? Do you want a private, peaceful retreat where you can focus on the deep blue sea? Are you adventurous and want to explore all that coastal Ecuador has to offer? Party animal? Foody? Yoga buff? All of these types of vacations (and more) can be found at Bob and Roxanne's lovely rental. My husband and I stayed in the Alta suite for two weeks in June. As previous reviewers have noted, the suite has all your needs. It is clean, well designed, and if you can pull yourself away from the perfect ocean view, cooking in the well stocked kitchen was a delight as we watched the spectacular sunsets each evening. The bed was comfortable, and we kept the windows constantly open to hear the crashing waves and feel the constant ocean breeze. We were never hot, and there were no bugs. The beach is clean, private and large. We walked every morning and usually saw only a handful of people on our walks. But the most important detail that is included in this vacation rental is the expertise and connection with Bob and Roxanne. They are both highly sensitive to your vacation needs. They seem to know when you need a ride somewhere, and can help you with taxis or buses, or when you may need to be left alone. They were so kind and their knowledge of Ecuador was invaluable to us. The minute I asked about where to purchase a panama hat for my husband, Bob immediately offered to take us to the next town the following day. Bill now has a snappy new panama hat! Montantita is a close walk and has many nice restaurants. We visited several coastal towns and enjoyed museums, aquariums, restaurants, and a tour package to Isla de la Plata. We actually got to see several whales on one of our tours and snorkled with sea turtles! The people of Ecuador were friendly and kind. Many tried to help us with our minimal knowledge of their language, and we got along fine with our broken Spanish. My husband and I always felt safe as we traveled around. We never saw any panhandlers or people who pushed you to buy their tourist treasures. The locals really appreciate your business. Whatever you are looking for in a vacation, staying with Bob and Roxanne is a great home base. Thanks to Bob and Roxanne's kind hospitality, we experienced the vacation of a lifetime. We will return to Ecuador again, and we will stay with Bob and Roxanne again as well."

  • Beautiful apt in central location

    "Stayed for 11nights as our home base for our trip. It was a total of 7 of us ranging in ages from 9-75. The apartment is spacious and very comfortable. It has beautiful views of the volcano Pichincha. The building is secure with a guard outside at all times. It was so convenient to have a large kitchen, the three bathrooms and washer/dryer for clothes. We were able to have family come over without impeding on everyone. We were able to walk to restaurants and the supermarket was very close by. You could take a taxi to the historic center for approx. $3. Quito is a loud city with car alarms and sirens which was disturbing at night, but that's what you get with such a central location. The renter also helped arrange a driver to pick-up and drop-off from the airport which was very nice. In fact, the driver was so nice and convenient we used him another time during our trip. To make life easier, the owners also have a cell phone to use; all I did was add $5 worth of minutes and that lasted the entire trip. People who visited us at the apartment commented how nice and spacious the apartment is. This apartment is highly recommended for larger groups visiting Quito."
