Linda was on a well desered holiday when my wife and I arrived. Nevertheless, she made sure we were picked up from the airport (should email her if you need airport pick up/drop off). Once we arrived we were greated by volunteers (you will learn and experience all about it) :) We loved our apartment Bailey and it was very clean. We enjoyed our morning breakfast at Linda's (very reasonable $3-$5 usd pp) and $2 large beer in the evening. We met Linda's local neighbors everyday and spent late night with her volunteer group. While we were there she had volunteers from Germany, Colombia, Venezuela, France, and Swiss. They all were super nice. Once Linda arrived from her holiday, we realized she is just a sweet, caring, and a huge pet lover. She also took us to the bus station on an early Sunday morning. We wish we would have booked a few weeks/months more. Thank you, Linda :)

I went with my father and we stayed at Bailey. We had a wonderful time there. Linda and Pam are great hosts and they delivered on everything that was advertised.

Had a lovey peaceful time - Linda and Jim very very helpful. Would certainly go back again! No ATM in SM so bring cash with you! Managed to get taxi from Manta for $6 - but $10 is the norm.

We were supposed to have had 4 nights in a full condo suite. 2 weeks prior to arrival we were told the unit was overbooked and we no longer had those accomodations. The manger said we could have a smaller unit which we agreed to for 2 days. I was not pleased with the change as the unit had been completely paid for much earlier. On our arrival we went to the new accomodations and were pleasantly surprised at the new renovations. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. We did not realize that the accomodations were a $10 dollar cab ride from Manta. There are no stores or bakerys in the area so you want to make sure you shop before coming out here. Kite surfing is the big draw for this area. During winter months it is pretty desolate other than weekends. Many foreign young people come to kite surf.

My family and I spend several wonderful days at Linda's place. We rent several rooms and the accommodation for all of us was so easy. The beach was so close and so pretty. The great communication made our stay possible.

We had a great time at Linda's place. She was a great host, the studio was very nice and the beach was beautiful. Linda took us to several places and made sure we got to meet and talk with several expats which was one of the reasons we traveled to the Manta area.

Beautiful studio. Impeccably clean. Steps from the beach and a wonderful, gracious host. Perfect solution if you want a semi-remote stay with spacious, open beaches and an authentic Ecuadorian beach experience.

I am a 72 year old widow who retired to Ecuador from The States. I have made my home into a guesthouse. Am directly on a long safe, Sandy beach. It's great for long walks or just enjoy the view. Love the waves, just so relaxing. The beach is only 20 mins from Manta
Santa Marianita is known for its kite surfing and is very International. I meet people from all over the world, ages, and professions. Every day is an adventure. Also have an animal friendly enviroment.
I can remember hearing the old saying Life is a Beach and now I know its really true. LIFE IS A BEACH
