John and Barbie are wonderful hosts and this was by far the best experience we've had using Airbnb! Their property is exactly as pictured. Clean, bright, modern with beautiful tile and wooden floors, a large kitchen and two full baths. Plus, a great outdoor seating area and lots of privacy. We had a great time during our 3 week stay. John and Barbie helped us with cabs, directions, food & entertainment recommendations. They also introduced us to many of their friends and we were able to attend several social functions in Cuenca. The location was great. Downtown Cuenca was walking distance and cabs were cheap and plentiful. The city is beautiful and hiking in the Cajas, visiting the country's largest orchid farm and seeing the markets in Sig Sig were all short, convenient trips from the property. We highly recommend staying with John and Barbie. We hope to do so in the future as well!

We have stayed in airbnbs all over the world and this one is far and above the best one. First of all comes southern hospitality; There wasnt a day that passed that Barbie and John did not check on us, give us tasty dishes from cheeses, breads, wine, italian foods, and excellent conversations! We arrived near midnight due to a cancelled flight and they were waiting for us with a welcome coctail! They helped arrange key logistics like mountain bike rentals to explore the beautiful city and Andes mountains. Second was the absolutely luxerious private home we stayed in with beautiful wooden floors, very comfortable beds and couches, and brilliant natural solar lighting in many rooms. We watched movies on the big flat screen during our rest day from the science conference. Over the weekend, we biked down nearly 6,000 vertical feet, rock climbed in a near by tower, and went on a city tour in this spectacular city described as the Athens of South America. John and Barbie really went out of their way to make our workation the best and most productive and fun as far back as I can remember. Its no wonder that most people that stay with them end up moving there! Hope to see you soon John and Barbie!

We had a great time at John and Barbie's. They were extraordinarily gracious, including inviting us to their friends' New Year's party, telling us about their fave restaurants, and assistance from little to big. The apartment is very pleasant and ample and in a very convenient location.

Wow, incredible. You will get much more than expected. For me it was one of my best stay ever. I can say now I have friends in Ecuador. They are hosts by nature. I really miss them already. Gracias John and Barbie.

We felt so welcome at John and Barbie's. They went above and beyond as hosts. They helped us find our way around the neighborhood and Cuenca. The house is and garden is beautiful and easily accommodated our family of four. The neighborhood is very convenient to transportation, stores and the largest mercado in town. We loved the walk along the river into the center of town. I would highly recommend this home to anyone visiting Cuenca.

John & Barbie are perfect hosts who truly exceed the norm. I have rented many condos/homes but have never met better hosts who make their guests feel totally comfortable and welcome. Their property is accurately described in all aspects. Since the purpose of our visit was to explore Cuenca with the idea of possibly relocating there, our hosts made certain that we met other expats to learn of their experiences.
