APARTMENT WITH THE BEST VIEW OF CUENCA, ECUADOR!
With a private wrap-around yard.
Welcome to Cuenca, the city that enjoys such a diversity of people from all over the world, and is also a World Cultural Heritage site, surrounded by beautiful nature.
What kind of an apartment are you looking for to stay in?
Do you wish to stay in El Centro (downtown) where it is exciting and noisy or in a quiet neighborhood? La Verbena in quiet and out of the way, yet you can be in the thick of it all any time you wish, with an inexpensive five or ten minute taxi ride.
Do you wish to stay in an historic place with character (read older, some things don't work) or in a brand new apartment like La Verbena?
Four walls can make you feel closed in sometimes. Do you need a little outside greenery? Fresh air? La Verbena has a large deck with table and chairs and a secure, private, grass yard. While you are out there, enjoy the breath-taking view of Cuenca. Or take in the spectacular night view from your bedroom window.
Are you planning to be in Cuenca in June through September? These are the cold months. Don't worry, there is never any snow or ice here, except in your drink. You will be warm enough walking about shopping or sight-seeing. And you will know that La Verbena has heated floors. You can return home after a long day of being a tourist, turn on the TV, take off your shoes, and warm your feet in one of the few heated apartments in Cuenca! Or you can sit out on the patio and watch the city lights come on.
La Verbena is in a friendly neighborhood with very pleasant neighbors. The condo is close to public transportation. There is access to many services like a shopping mall and the downtown area shops. Taxi rates range from US $2-$5. Busses charge 25 cents.
