    Response from Beth:

    It was great having you Vic and we hope you enjoyed the beach and will see you again. It is always nice making new friends with our guest.

  • The apartment was in a great location for el centro and access to anything needed for daily living and entertainment. It had everything needed to cook, sleep, shower and live comfortably. Bring your cozy clothes though as the unit can get a little chilly at times. Elizabeth was a helpful and generous hostess who even gave me the great gift of sharing a day and picnic in the beautiful countryside of Cajas with her family. Very special, and the day was topped off with a toast and a national warm sugarcane spiced drink conelaza (sp) in a gorgeous country lodge next to a warm fireplace mmmm. Thank you Beth, Carlos and Gabriela for your generosity.

  • The apt was clean and nicely furnished. The kitchen was well stocked with everything for cooking. It has an excellent location in walking distance to El Centro. It is right on the river. It is close to the parks and grocery stores and all the sites. Beth and Carlos were wonderful, delightful, and very accommodating hosts. They helped us with navigating Cuenca. Carlos even took us to get groceries when we first came. Beth made sure we had everything we needed. Beth, Carlos, and I would chat over some wine in the evening. They were recommended places to go and see. I would definitely come back and stay,

  • The apartment is in a fantastic location. You just have to cross the footbridge , go up the steps and you are in the main street of Cuenca. But because it is away from the main street in a fascinating building , back from the road it is very quiet.
    The kitchen is quite well equipped so that you can cook basic meals. The washing machine had broken down but Beth and. Carlos very kindly washed and dried our clothes and towels .
