Interaction with Guests
We live in this house, it is our home and our guests often become like family.

We are located one minute from Tres Puentes off of Ave Solano. Buses to the center of Cuenca are a 5 minute walk and 10 minutes to shopping, restaurants etc.
Guests are free to cook their own meals, but must clean up. There is no smoking allowed.
Pros: The house is charming, located in a green, quiet suburb outside of the city center but still close to all of interest. There is abundant hot water and a washer/dryer. Mariel is a lovely lady with a warm smile. The dogs, Toby and Betsy, are absolutely adorable. The accommodation is pet-friendly. I enjoyed meeting the other guests staying at this location.
Cons: The wifi connection was poor: I ended up going to another location to log on. Breakfast was skimpy. The host, Malcolm, got up before 5 am and was so noisy that he woke me up every single day. Every. Single. Day.
The TV is never on in the morning and our website states we serve a light breakfast. The internet because it is like a party line, is often slow at times. The house is very large and there are range extenders, but not in the bedrooms. We have no choice on providers, but that will change early in the new year.
Very large and beautiful house. Near to bus stops and centers of interest. It lacks nothing for a pleasant stay.
