Fantastic location in a sought after area. Within 2 blocks there is major grocery store, pharmacy, banks, bakeries, river, market and bus service. WE REGRET; NO CHILDREN OR PETS.
Our main home that our guests will be staying in is their home for the duration of their stay. The yard is a common area.
Interaction with Guests
Interaction with our guests is welcomed. We live on the same premises (in our own cottage) and are available to them when needed. It's always our pleasure to assist to make their stay memorable.
Our neighborhood is quiet and save with no buses or taxies running on our block, yet convenient to El Centro and all necessary amenities.
Yes, Buses are on the next corner of our home. Our home has secure parking and upon request will call for Taxi service for them. We always ask if the guests need transportation from the airport.
NO CHILDREN OR PETS; AND NO SMOKING IN THE HOUSE.
The apt was really large, well stocked and comfortable. Barbie and John were great. They invited us to socialize with their friends many times. They were a wealth of information about life in Cuenca. You will enjoy your time there. Beth and Tammy
John and Barbie were wonderful hosts for our stay in Cuenca. They provided great information and helpful advice on how to get around and things to do. We enjoyed wine and conversation with them on more than one occasion and felt like we were staying with friends. The home is sunny, spacious and immaculately clean. We look forward to visiting again next year.
Highly recommend this spacious and well equipped apartment. Barbie and John couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful to make our brief stay more memorable. Perfect location for longer stays in a quiet location and close to grocery store. Easy 20 minute walk to the center of historic center city. Book this if you want a home away from home while exploring Quenca and learning of expat life in Ecuador.
The apartment was absolutely lovely in a nice safe neighbourhood. The host was polite and extremely helpful and extremely accommodating when I wished to add an extra attendee at short notice. I certainly recommend this apartment which is well priced, clean, well decorated and in a quite part of Cuenca.
Great apt, great price, great location, easy access to all, above all -- great hosts, John & Barbie. Most highly recommended.
The rental is on a quite street off the main drag. About a mile from the city center, it is a good location from where to experience the city by walking. They have 100% secure parking, which was important to us. This location is very easy to find by car -- the street address is easily seen on the wall outside. The rental is large and spacious with cable TV and internet. Very clean. Internet access is solid, never went down, but did get slower at peak times during the day. This is a two-flat setup -- John and Barbie live in one flat, and they rent out the other one. We saw this as an enormous positive (both from social and security standpoints). John and Barbie are fun people, and were a willing resource for all of our questions about the city. I think I read this on another of their reviews-- but it is true -- they are as involved with your stay as you want them to be. Overall an excellent experience. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
