  • More than I expected

    "This place was amazing. I knew it would be nice as VRBO has never disappointed me but this was so much more than I thought it would be. Clean and well stocked in a very nice neighborhood. The owners leave a lot of information for you to use on your visit. It was a great place to recover from jet lag before going to the Galapagos. There is a grocery store near by and we were able to get snacks and food to cook. Nice restaurants and shopping mall within walking distance. There was a very nice park with a botanical garden within walking distance also. The neighborhood is very clean and quiet at night."

  • The property was wonderful. Pictures don't lie.

    "We just spent a month at Playa Dorada and loved every minute of our time there. The condo is on the 2nd floor so there is a beautiful unobstructed view view of the ocean and we spent plenty of time sitting on the balcony watching the waves, sunsets and paragliders landing on the beach. Opening the bedroom door and falling asleep and waking to the sounds of the waves was so relaxing. The condo was beautifully decorated and welk sticked with everything you need to cooj meals including spices which we added to. The buses and taxis were readily available as well as cheap and easy to figure out. The permanent residents at the condo were very nice as well as helpful and included us in activities such as triva night at the surf shack. We made some long lasting friendships. Many vendors come to the gate such as the bread guys selling fresh warm homemade bread, yogurt and pizza dough, fisherman selling fresh fish, a guy selling sausage and chutneys and of course the wine and booze truck. Shopping is just a 1.00 bus ride away, and the Monday market in San Vicente can't be missed. Peggy was awesome to work with and even contacted us while we were there to make sure all was well and solved the only issue in a couple of hours. Samia, the property manager was awesome and an angel. If there was a down side it would be that the living room furniture and bed were not extremely comfortable but we weren't indoors much. Thank you Peggy and Reg for letting us enjoy your home. We will definitely be back to Ecuador. This was by far our best experience with VRBO. It is peple like these that make vacations wonderful. Thanks again."

  • Our Favorite Vacation Rental

    "We enjoyed staying in this condo for a month because of its location, space, security, internet reliability, and especially the owners. Being on the top floor in a corner unit, across from the beach and within easy walking distances to the best restaurants, made this condo a perfect location. Also, we could see both sides of the peninsula. From the balcony, we saw whales feeding. This very clean and well-maintained space was brilliantly designed to maximize space and light. The chic and comfortable furniture accentuated the design and was sufficient for our need as a couple. We (mostly husband) particularly enjoyed the recliner and ottoman. The essentials in the kitchen and bathroom exceeded our expectations in quantity, quality, and variety. Even beach towels, small cooler (what a pleasant surprise), and cellphone were provided. The bedroom was spacious with built-in closets, which had lots of hangers, and built-in drawers. The desk was a bonus. The bedding and linen were of good quality with extras available! We always felt safe, and the ever vigilant doorman added to this feel. The internet was reliable and speedy. As world travelers, vacation rentals are our primary housing choice. Most owners follow a basic model. James and Cecelia are very speciall. As guests, we always felt our happiness was paramount. James arranged for us to be picked up from the Guayaquil airport by Viktor (an excellent driver and spontaneous guide) for our two-hour ride to Salinas. Also, they arranged for a nail tech to come to the condo, made a massage appointment (walked wife to location), suggested a three-night trip to Montanita and Puerto Lopez including where to stay and eat - all excellent recommendations!! Our orientation was thorough. Thanks James for your patience. Let's not forget Ralph. One look at this dog, and you will want to become a pet owner. We highly recommend renting this condo."
