  • Mari and Mauro's wonderful place and amazing and friendly interaction with their guests were the key points for us extending our staying in Puerto Lopez. We had everything we needed, including yummy-healthy breakfasts and help to call moto-taxis or tips to go eat seafood at the malecón. I woke up when little birds came to my window to sing, and we had coffee seeing the sunrise and sunset at our balcony. Puerto Lopez is a small town and when it rains it gets really muddy, but even though you will find things to do and Marianella will take time to speak with you and share some of her family stories living in the town. We will be back there, that's a promise!

  • peaceful rustic place with nice open areas overlooking the ocean from the hill top. Marianela is a lovely host.

    Lucy2017-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Maremonti B&B. Marianella was incredibly kind and attentive throughout our stay. We loved the rustic feel of the apartment, and the beautiful ocean views. Breakfast on the terrace was also a nice treat. We would definitely stay here again!

    Whitney2017-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Marianella's place is wonderful, the views are amazing. Breakfast and coffee on the veranda in the mornings was perfect, and the dinner (for extra) was amazing. I highly recommend staying there!

    Liliya2017-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • Property met all expectations. Very clean and comfortable, ideal for groups of 3+. Great disposition and attitude by Marianella, who was very accommodating. A bit of a walk from town, but sorted easily by the moto taxis. Strongly recommend it!

    Patricio2016-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a charming B&B with a wonderful view of the ocean and town. During my stay, two love birds visited regularly to watch the sunset from the flowering branches alongside the balcony! Marianella is a great host; she was very responsive and provided references in areas of my interest. She also serves a nice breakfast (included), and dinner (for an extra fee), on the upper balcony. Highlights of Puerto Lopez included watching pelicans dive for fish from the pier, eating at beachside restaurants, and visiting Los Frailes beach nearby. Overall, a great place to stay!!

    Christina2017-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • If your going to Puerto Lopez this is the place you want to stay! Marianella is so very helpful and lovely to chat with. The breakfast is delicious and we were so happy to be staying there. Thank you for everything!

    Liana2017-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place. Lot of space. Marianella and her husband were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was great too.

  • Ivan and Kassie met us at the apartment when we arrived and were very helpful. We loved the view. Everything was very clean. The location was close to resturants and the mall (URL HIDDEN) is 5 blocks away. Getting a cab in front of the building was very easy. WIFI was very strong and reliable.

    Lee2015-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Ivan and Kassie were wonderful hosts. Ivan met us and showed us around the neighborhood so we could orientate ourselves to our surroundings even though it was late at night. The apartment is very comfortable and the view is breath taking. The location is very safe as well. Ivan checked in with us to make sure everything was going well and when we had a small problem with the Internet he fixed it right away. I would recommend this apartment to whomever is visiting Quito. Thank you Ivan and Kassie

  • Location location location ... Wow !! Sweeping views of the park & coutry side .. The couple couldn't have been more accommodating.... Plenty of room .. Felt like home .... SOO much fun .. Exactly as the ad & prior reviews described .....

    Greg 2015-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • Ivan and Kassie's apartment was great! The location was perfect for our needs. The park that is directly across the street from their building was wonderful and had plenty of things to see and do. We could have easily spent an entire day just wandering around the park. There are also a ton of restaurants within walking distance of their building or just a short cab ride away. My family and I also spent a day wandering around the old part of Quito and visiting the sites. Getting to the old part of Quito was very convenient via a $4 cab ride. The apartment itself was extremely nice and comfortable. Everything was exceedingly clean, the water pressure was really good, the wifi was really fast, and having an in-unit washer/dryer was a nice touch after being on the road for two weeks. My family had a great time in Quito and wouldn't hesitate for a second about staying in Ivan and Kassie's place in the future.

    Jay2016-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Ivan and Kassie was very accommodating. They tried to make the room available before the standard check in time and allowed us to leave our suitcases with the guards so that we can start out tour early.

    ron2015-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay tremendously. Ivan is a great host . I used their airport pick up service at 4:30 AM which worked out great and the rate is comparable to a taxi. The place is as shown on the pictures . Very comfortable, spacious and with stunning views of the city and mountains . I will definitively stay here again ! 5 ***** !

    Alexander2017-05-27T00:00:00Z

  • First of all our reservation was at very short notice and thanks to Marco immediately responding to our request and organizing everything to make the apartment ready we could move in the next day which was just perfect. We had a very warm welcome by Segundo and he provided water and even fruit. Thank you! The apartment itself is brilliant and even better than what is mentioned in the description. We loved the minimalistic style very much and the view over the historic center is just breathtaking. If there were 6 stars available we would vote 6.

    Volker2014-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • What an awe-inspiring place to retreat to after a long day out and about. The views simply cannot be beat. The thoughtfulness of providing water and fruit, tea, etc. at my arrival was just perfect. And above all, Segundo went above and beyond in helping to make my stay and travels comfortable. Thank you!

    Preeti2017-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a delightful time in Quito! Marco's place was very comfortable and conveniently located. The view was incredible and definitely our favorite part! If we were to venture back to Quito, we'd definitely stay here again.

  • Jorge was an excellent host! he is super nice, picked us up at the airport - as a surprise! - the apartment is very elegant, great view over the city, and possibilities for grocery shopping and getting money from atm are very close. Jorge was really concerned about us, makimg sure we understand everything, etc. we only used taxis, but as far as i saw, there's also public transport close by. area seemed very safe!

    Maria2015-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Jose's apartment was very centrally located and clean. He was very quick in getting back to us to answer any questions and made the check in / out process very seamless. The apartment is located on a busy street so it is easy to grab a taxi. We would definitely stay in Jose's apartment again!

    Kristen2016-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • The location was great and the view was fantastic - as described. The apartment was clean and suitable for 2. Jorge was a very responsive host and even arranged a driver to meet us at the airport. No need to worry about anything in the apartment - everything is there and a market is nearby. If interested in tours, Jorge can even arrange with a service which we took advantage of and thoroughly enjoyed! Jorge has my recommendation.

    Johny2016-05-21T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first Airbhb stay, we could not be happier Jorge made arrangements to have us picked up at airport. Was given short tour of his neighborhood then nice walk through of apartment and amenities very nice clean great view close to everything needed. Definitely recommend this place could not be any better.

    Michael2016-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view, nice building with reception lobby. Very close to restaurants, cafes, nightlife, etc.. Host was very responsive to messages.

    Ross2017-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Everything everyone said checks out! The location is great; a short walk to the Supermaxi for groceries, Plaza Foch for overpriced Western bars and restaurants, and convenient for public transit. Jorge was a wonderful host, very responsive and helpful. His driver Klever picked us up from the airport even though we didn't land until midnight, and gave us a nice short tour of the neighbourhood. Highly recommended!

  • My family was greeted at the bus station by family members and taken out for dinner, which was very convenient. Zilpa, Santiago, and Pedro were very welcoming and helpful during our stay. They often ate breakfast with us (if we got up early enough). As stated, the house is gorgeous, clean, and nicely decorated. It is a bit of a hike up the driveway to the house, especially after a long day. The house is within a 20 or 30-minute walk of several different hot springs and a few restaurants and stores. There is also a nice hike up the hill on the property. The room itself is bright, with a very large window. There is also many drawers for storing personal items, making it very convenient. The internet signal was strong and reliable, able to support video chat programs.

  • My boyfriend and I have been living in Quito for the past 6 months so we were very excited to take a short vacation to Cuenca for 4 days. Because we live in the historic centre of Quito, we thought it'd be nice to stay with Lorena's family outside Cuenca. Zilpa and Santiago (Lorena's parents) were excellent hosts. Zilpa especially made sure we were comfortable and helped us with any queries we had - whether it was catching taxis or choosing a place to eat. We paid $4 during the day and $5-$6 (at night) for a taxi from Cuena's city centre to Banos. It was also easy to catch a bus into town. An excellent cook, Zilpa made our breakfasts - usually fresh fruit, eggs, bread, coffee/tea with either a piece of delicious cake or jelly. She also makes her own jams and miel de panela. The coffee was great too (and I'm not a usual drinker). Our bedroom was on the top floor with a small patio, which we used to sit outside and read. Their house is incredible. We delighted at watching hummingbirds feed everyday. Our bed was comfortable, if a little firm, and the bathroom had beautiful tiles. They have three, very cute dogs. There's a steep climb up the driveway from the front gate, which could be troublesome for some people. We treated ourselves to the nearby thermal springs of Piedra de Agua on our first day, which weren't as nice as Papallacta, but they did have top-quality massage therapists. We also walked up the hillside behind the house to a lookout over Banos and Cuenca. Even though Lorena mixed up our arrival date and couldn't pick us up at the airport upon arrival; Santiago dropped us upon our departure. It was great to not have to worry about getting to the airport. Overall, we absolutely loved staying with Zilpa and Santiago and their son Piedro. I would highly recommend staying with them.

    Su-Yin & Simon 2013-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • I never actually met Lorena, but her parents, Zilpa & Santiago, who own the home and live there along with their son Pedro, are all wonderful, friendly, helpful people. Even though they don't speak much English, we managed to communicate and had a good time with their extended family, sharing meals and even dancing in the kitchen one night! They were kind enough to lead us a back way out of town to the road to Cajas and keep our car safe in their gated compound. Although they actually live in Banos, which is a bit of a ways from downtown Cuenca, the views and warmth of their personalities is more than worth it and highly recommended, as are the delicious breakfasts.

    SueAnn2014-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Zilpa and Santiago was like visiting family. They, as well as their adult children, were very warm and welcoming. There home is far more beautiful then the pictures depict. It is located just outside the city of Cuenca and we could not have been happier staying with this sweet family. Unfortunately my husband and I got sick while we were in Ecuador. Zilpa was a great nurse and Pedro even drove us to the clinic late one evening. When we didn't return in what they thought was the appropriate amount of time they came looking for us! It turned out that the doctor had sent us to the local hospital for some lab work. The kindness and concern this sweet family showed us was most appreciated! EVERYTHING about the accommodations and the experience was lovely! My husband and I hope to visit with Zilpa and Santiago again sometime soon! You will not regret booking your stay with them!

    Wendy2015-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • I don't really have the words to express my satisfaction for the 6 week stay with this family. Of course the house and accommodations are beautiful and interesting, but moreover, it was Santiago, Zilpa, Pedro. Lorena, Marlon, Alicea, Pablo, Pablo Daniel, Gasparon (& other perros) and their many friends that made the stay so very, very special. They were very patient and accommodating with transportation, suggestions on site seeing, questions about the area and my severe lack of Spanish. I also need to make special mention of Zilpa's very tasty and healthy meals. Overall, for me it was a great introduction to Ecuador. And the best thing ... I now have friends to visit when I return to Cuenca in a few months, this time to live!

    Ric2013-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Santiago and Zilpa's home is truly a work of art. It is ebbed in nature, totally serene and peaceful. The room with the terrace has a spectacular view of the valley below, it is mesmerizing! While the house is not centrally located, it offers a much needed escape from city life. The family is kind, accommodating and gracious. They have a dog, Alec, who is cuddly and adorable! Zilpa is a fantastic cook, I would highly recommend staying in a few nights with the family. As many other reviewers have mentioned, you do have to climb a large hill to reach the house, but it is totally worth it. The trek might just inspire you to stay in and relax a bit more around the house! There is ample space around the property to take in the views and get some fresh air. If we ever make it back to Cuenca, we would stay again in a heartbeat.

    Abigail2017-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • Santiago, Zilpa and Pedro were the perfect hosts. From Santiago's kind words and gestures, Zilpa's amazing cooking abilities and heart warming hospitality, and Pedro's willingness to cater to our questions, needs and translate when necessary, each have shown their generosity in a beautiful way which has created a sense of home away home. Speaking of home, the pictures (while stunning) hardly give justice to this inspiring, unique, rustic, mountain-side home. The view overlooking the town into the mountains can be seen from just about every room - but if you brought your hiking shoes and are up for a decent climb - 160 something steps to the top of the mountain that the home sits on will quite literally take your view to another level; it is well worth it. With some pocket change, you can take a 10 minute bus ride into the historic town of Cuenca, you're also not too far from Cajas National Park, there are local markets with quality food right down the road... overall, this is the perfect place to experience the joys of Cuenca Ecuador while being accommodated by wonderful people. Highly recommended.

    Daniel2015-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Santiago and Zilpa was like staying with family. We played with the dogs daily and enjoyed the beautiful view from the terrace off of our Room. Our Room was very big with a huge shower and sink just off to the side. It was Zilpa`s Birthday the day before we left and she invited us out with all her friends and family for dinner and dancing. This is a great place to relax and read a book or paint or draw. The hill leading up to their place is quite challenging if you are not in good shape. We enjoyed the excercise. They have thermal baths about a fifteen minute walk which we reallly enjoyed. I would definetely stay here again. It was just outside of Cuenca and made us feel like locals taking the bus into town everyday. We will be back.

  • Marcos' place was amazing value and he is an excellent host! I definitely recommend that you stay with Marcos. It is so close to the airport, and also very convenient to a big mall as well.

    Narelle2017-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Marcos's place was exactly as described. It is just a short ride to the airport, which was the main reason we booked this location. It's also appx 3 blocks from a mega-mall that has an ATM, a large grocery store, and many retail shops (similar to USA brands). We felt safe walking to the mall during daytime hours, but the neighborhood did contain very few tourists that we saw. The layout of the rental rooms on our floor surrounded a common large kitchen area and small living room desk. There was only one other guest who checked in during the evening, but they were very quiet so we did not hear them much. I would expect the sound levels can vary if others are using the common areas though - something to keep in mind if you are a light sleeper! There was a brief power outage in our building and the entire block, but electricity resumed quickly. Marcos lives 2 stories up in the same building and came down the public stairwell to keep us updated as to the situation - very helpful and nice of him! Overall, this was an affordable place to spend a night or two near a mall/airport with many modern conveniences. Thank you!

He was very helpful answering our questions, making suggestions, and making sure we had everything we needed. The bedroom was exactly as depicted -- neat and clean. He had a welcoming folder ready for us with wifi and other helpful information. We enjoyed his openness, availability, and conversation.

  • Great apartment, and the bedroom in particular offered spectacular views of the surrounding area. Apartment was clean and the building felt safe and secure, but those views were my favorite aspect about the place. Location was good too - nice neighborhood, with some of Quito's best restaurants nearby. The nightlife of Plaza Foch was also just a few blocks away. Perfect for discovering other parts of Quito other than the Old Town. I did not have the opportunity to meet David, but he was extremely responsive to my inquiries and everything went smoothly.

    Matthew2015-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • what can I say, David is a great host. everything that was posted on the reviews here are on point. the apartment has an amazing view including the best view from the bedroom. the neighborhood is excellent, many good eats. if your looking for authentic Ecuadorian food at reasonable prices, walk down to the 6th de Octubre Ave and hang a left. about 150 ft you'll find cozy local spot for breakfast. all in all, we were very satisfied with the apt and David is a great host.

David couldn't meet us personaly, but he was always kind and quick on answering our requests, including the arrange of an awesome late checkout. There were books, maps and guides that were helpful, and he recommended us a driver that was great. We definitely enjoyed our stay and recommend it.

  • Great place to stay for our first night in Quito! Everything was just as great as described!

    Reed2017-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • The view was spectacular on the 13th floor condo. There was easy access by cab, public transportation or walking to districts around Quito. Many restaurants close by for those late evenings! David was able to arrange our pick up at the airport to his home very late in the evening by Miguel, we thank both of you so much so this!

    Ann2017-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • The location of the apartment is perfect- close to great restaurants, close to other key points in Quito! The decoration of the apartment was so artistic and friendly ! We were very happy without stay!

    Beckie2017-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • The view from the bedroom is exactly as breathtaking as on the photos. The bed is very comfortable and the apartment well equipped and clean. David send us a driver to pick us up at the airport and we arrived well in the apartment in the middle of the night. Everything was well organized and prepared. When there was some minor technical problems our host took immediately care and send somebody. The communication was very fast and easy. The neighborhood is save and quite. There are many restaurants close by and a supermarket is within 5min walking distance. To get into the old town takes about 10 - 15min by bus. The apartment is a great home away from home. Thank you David!

    My place is close to restaurants and right across the street from the beach. You’ll love it because of the ocean views and the location. In front is the very beautiful Malecon of Salinas where you can go for a walk or go cycling.
    The apartment is located on the 10th floor of a very secure building named Torremar. It has an elevator. We have cable tv and free WiFi internet. Air conditioner in all bedrooms.
    Right in front of the Malecon of Salinas ideal for walking, jogging or cycling. Across the street from the beach. There are many restaurants nearby for every budget. Some of them with delivery option. Two supermarkets very near. Ten minutes away by car from the Paseo Shopping Mall.
  • This was our second time staying here and it was great again. Check in was easy and the place was clean and ready for us. We had 3 couples and everyone was comfortable and very happy with the condo. We loved the view of the ocean and how open the living room is. Check out was also smooth. We will stay here again for sure!

    Right next to the awesome Carolina Park with direct connection to the city center and touristic bus this modern suite, with swimming pool and sauna, situated in safe area and decorated with antiques and local objects, is the perfect spot to explore Quito without worrying.
    The building is completely new but we love antiques and the local culture. We tried to furnish using local antiques and crafts. The apartment is very functional, perfect for 2 people (and one child). It's very luminous and comfortable. There are two bathrooms and one balcony from which you can see humming birds. Huge terrace on top floor with panoramic views.
    La Carolina is one of Quito's most beautiful parks, with many attractions in it. Right around the corner of our home you will find one of Quito best and most famous cafés (Cafetto) where you can have excellent local meals at a reasonable price. For grocery shopping the very close shopping mall El Jardín has a Supermaxi (huge supermarket where your cna find anything) and a food court. Right in front of the building you will find a tiny little store for basic things and a brand new restaurant: la Casa Tomada.
  • Beautiful and secure building located in the modern part of town. Excellent choice if you want to live like a local that is in the know. The apartment is modern and has a washer and dryer if you are planning and extended stay. The walk to the shopping center or even the center of town is easy and it's also easy to catch a taxi from right in front of the building

    James2017-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Diego was very accommodating with everything we needed. The apartment is very modern and well equipped, in a quiet and safe area of town. We had a great stay here and would definitely be back here when we come back.

    Eddie & Diego2016-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Diego was responsive and always accessible.

    Truls2016-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Diego's apartment was perfect. Very spacious and modern. Right next to a great park. La Casa Tomada, the restaurant across the street, is delicious and cool. There is a huge mall and grocery store nearby. All sights can be reached by taxi (easily hailed) for $5 or less. Great stay!

    Eleni2017-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Diego's apartment is fabulous. For business or pleasure, you won't find a better location, quality or value in Quito. In the middle of everything, but just far enough off the busy avenues, the apartment is quiet, cozy and clean. The building is brand new and all facilities are in excellent working condition. We especially enjoyed the indoor heated pool and steam and sauna baths. Please try to keep this place a close held secret!

    Kevin2016-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, nicely organised - the place was located in a great location as well.

    Andy2016-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • Diego's place is lovely,as described, very clean with good Wifi. The area is upscale and near the park and shopping mall and easy to get taxis. In spite of a late arrival I was able to get keys from thebuilding's guard and enter without a problem. All in all a professional transaction and good value.

    Allan (& Max)2016-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Diego's place for 3 nights and had an amazing time. The location felt very safe and was close to many local attractions. Diego was very responsive and made the entire trip very easy for us. We took his recommendations to visit the park, Cafetto and Maria cal area. The apartment is very clean, comfortable and beautiful! I would highly recommend!

  • We appreciated Gulnara's advice and guidance in everything we wanted to do. She was a tremendous resource.

    Kim2017-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Gulnara is a perfect host to visit Isabela. She speaks perfect English, always friendly and will always help you when you need anything. The place was clean and spacious and the area with the four hammocks is probably the best place in the world to relax. The breakfast every morning was excellent, as was the fresh juice. She even stood up early to make us breakfast before our hike to Sierra Negra and made us sandwishes when we had to leave at 5:30am to the boat. Also her husband (Sense, Sensei, how do you write it?) is a remarkable fisherman who has lots of interesting stories. We had a fascinating time, we'll be back someday!

    Cedric2017-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay on Isabela. Friendly easy going atmosphere. Gulnana and Celso are excellent hosts, good cooks, know everybody and they make your trip easy and fun. We will stay there on our trip back. Henry says Hi to Celso. Coconut cup and boat made it home.

    Margaret2015-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Cartago Bay is a quiet, clean, centrally located B & B. The hosts, Gulnara and James, are very welcoming, kind, helpful people. Gulnara prepared breakfast for us every morning even for early tours and when the power went out!

    James2017-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at the Airbnb of Mrs. Gulnara. From the beginning communication in english was perfect. She picked us up at the harbor after arrival and guided us to her house. The room and the whole accommodation was perfect clean and there was also room service every day. Mrs. Gulnara and her husband are extremely friendly hosts, the breakfast which is also included in the price was excellent and always accompanied with self made fruit juices. We can 100 % recommend to stay there.

    Jörg2017-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Gulnara is a cheerful and helpful hostess. Her rooms are very clean, spacious and comfortable. She is a long-time local and has many useful contacts. As a retired English teacher from the local high school, her English is quite good. The location of her house is about midway between the town and the dock. It is a casual 10 minute walk either direction. The experience is like a homestay, with insights into the local community ... if that is your desire. We highly recommend her b&b.

    Thomas2015-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • Gulnara was a great host. She waited at the dock for us to arrive so that she could show us the way to her place, which is conveniently in between the town and the dock. Breakfast was custom made in the morning based on our preferences, and at any time requested. Gulnara helped us look for tours and plan out our stay. Also, Gulnara's husband is a guide who loves to talk about his experiences with the Galapagos. We loved the place and Isabela so much we extended our stay!

    Dennis2015-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Gulnara's place is peaceful and clean. She greeted us at the ferry pier.She was helpful in arranging a tour. After my wife received a seal lion bite (be careful)she was able to negotiate a new tour date. She is extremely personable and wants to ensure her quests are well taken care of.

  • Aura's "Cozy Galapagos" studio was everything we hoped it would be. It was modern, clean and well equipped, and was in an excellent location --- only 4 blocks walk into town to find restaurants, tour companies, and ice cream. It was also only a few blocks from the trail entrance to Tortuga Bay and two beaches - one for experienced surfers and the other more tranquil area for snorkeling, swimming and kayaking. Aura was very attentive to our needs and gave us some excellent suggestions for things to do within a modest budget. She is also an excellent English speaker which was quite convenient, and made for some pleasant and interesting conversations. Galapagos was amazing and staying at Aura's studio made it perfect.

    Don and Mercedes2015-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Aura's place is very confortable, well equiped, and very well localized. It is close of every thing we may need. The clening is perfect. And host is very attention and prompt to help us. Very good!!!!

  • Encantadas Red was wonderful for us. It is right at the entrance to Tortuga Bay which sets you out of the "city". It is an enjoyable walk to the house and provides a relaxing area to unwind after all of the things you can do in Puerto Ayora. We enjoyed our stay and will stay there again if we ever get the chance to visit the enchanted islands!

    Brandi2017-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful experience staying at Aura's place in puerto ayora! The house was gorgeous and a nice respite from staying in hostel. Aura was a great help from arranging our arrival and our departure, advice and out what to see and do and everything in between!

    Caroline2014-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Aura helped us arrange airport pick up which made arrival convenient and easy. Wilson the driver is friendly and a great tour guide. Aura went out of her way to answer our questions and to provide assistance.

    Adele2015-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • I wanted a place that was private, cozy, right in the center of town, but whee the locals live. It's so close to tortuna bay and the center of town that it is walking distance. The place can sleep two, has Internet wifi, towels, refrig, basic kitchen, filtered water and basic shower. The host rents out the bottom floor and designed it herself. She is communicative and helpful. If you are ok with no room service and the cleaning lady that cleans your place everyday but comes by the take trash out etc. I would recommend this place for sure!

    Becky2013-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • We felt good in the apartment. The host gave us the needed information to get around. The books in the house were helpful in learning about the Galápagos Islands and we appreciated that.

  • She was great! Communication was perfect and she helped me get settled and gave really good recommendations on where to go, what to see and where to eat in Cuenca. I recommend staying with her!

    Thomas2017-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed in pilar's place for one month as I was volunteering for a mobile surgery charity in Cuenca as a doctor. I wouldn't recommend this place for a short stay, but I would NOT recommend it for a longer stay. The avantages are that the wifi is great, the house is usually peaceful in the day, and the location is fantastic- you cannot beat it. The rooms are large and there is plenty of space to cook and to live. The house is very nice. You are able to cook and all equipment is provided. You are given your own cupboard and fridge. However- reasons why I would not recommend it for a longer stay: -pilar only allows you to use cold water in the kitchen during the day, and it is a tiny stream. So you must wash greecy frying pans for example, with a tiny stream of cold water. When you are paying that much money for a room, this seems unreasonable. When pila returns to the house, she can turn on the hot water for herself- very frustrating. -pilar is also trying to save money in other ways. For example, she only provides one small roll of toilet paper each week. If you need more (which you probably will) you have to purchase your own. This is ridiculous given the price of the stay; for the same price, i know homestays in Cuenca that will provide food for the same price. -you are not allowed to use the washing machine. This proved very inconvenient for me as I needed to wash my scrubs and other clothes once a week. It is only a small thing, but an inconvenience. -do not expect any form of introduction or welcome to the house. I had to figure out everything for myself. - pila is never there during the week so if you need anything, this is a problem. She only offered to wash my sheets once during the four weeks, and when she took them from me, I then didn't see her again for 4 days, and was left without sheets!!!! She is not at all thoughtful like that. -I would not recommend this place if you are working and you need your sleep. Pila is very noisy after 11 o'clock in the living room, which is next to the two downstairs bedrooms. I would also not recommend it if you are getting up early for work; even when it is dark she does not let you put the lights on in the in the living room, so you have to walk around to make your breakfast in the morning, for example, in the dark. When you go into the kitchen to make a bowel of cereal for example, she gets very angry at the noise, however quiet you are, so I generally had to eat out for breakfast. She is not at all tolerant with this and it is very frustrating when she is so very loud herself....

    Sarah 2015-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Terrible. Worst Airbnb experience in 30 different Airbnb stays. It is in an excellent location, and little street noise is heard as it is on the 3rd floor - above 2 floors of commercial offices. However, it is not quiet inside the Airbnb, as the hardwood floors provide no buffering of voices. The shared bathroom, as well as kitchen and dining room, were not cleaned well or often enough. Despite being in a "secure building", someone entered the Airbnb and stole my iPad, charging adapters and cables, hiking boots, a packaging cube containing several pairs of long pants, sweaters, a swimsuit, etc. My losses totaled close to $1000. Since I packed light for a 6 week trip, I was left with insufficient clothing for this trip. Although the host provides keys for street entry and Airbnb door entry, there are no keys to individual bedrooms (except for that of the host). So, although one can lock the bedroom door when inside the room, there is no way to secure the room when away. When I told the host about my clothing items stolen, she did offer me a swimsuit, which I said I would borrow until I am ready to leave Cuenca. All in all, I would not stay in this Airbnb again.

Everything went well, great shower, great location,good kitchen to prepare my meals and great conversation. If I needed help navigating my way around Cuenca she was there giving advice be it restaurants or good places to go. Couldn't ask for anything more!

  • I stayed here with two friends for one night in May 2017 and it was very comfortable - the unit is quite new and modern, and the building's amenities are very nice. There was lots of space and the building felt very secure. Andres gave very clear instructions on how to check in to the unit and we had no trouble at all getting there. This is a great unit if you're spending just a night or two in Guayaquil as it is located only about 5 minutes away from the airport, but taxis are easy to find and cheap if you'd like to see the attractions that Guayaquil has to offer. Great stay! Would stay here again.

  • The apartment was just as described and the view was even better than that. It was the best stay. Noe even offered to pick us up from the airport, and he visited us on the first night to make sure we had proper wifi access and tv access (which we did thanks to his easy instructions left in the apartment). Thanks for an awesome stay!!

  • Miltons apartment is beautiful, comfortable and has awesome views of Quito from its hillside setting. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping just a 5 minute walk down the hill. The kitchen has everything you need. Milton also picked us up at the airport for a price a bit lower than what the local taxis charge. Located on a main north/south street,taxis and buses are right outside their front door .

    Danny2016-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Check-in was very quick and efficient; we picked up the keys from the building's 24 hour doormen who are all very polite and courteous. Milton met us after check-in and gave us a tour of the apartment building, which includes indoor pool, sauna, and rooftop terrace. He was very helpful and offered to arrange taxi's to and from the airport, as well as a city tour. The apartment was very clean, comfortable, and had an amazing view of the city, located about 10 minutes walking from the Banalcazar Ecovia station.

    Lawrence2014-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was very comfortable and well located. For my family of four, we had everything we needed. The kitchen had the basics. There was hot water and the beds, livingroom, bathroom and kitchen were clean and comfortable. There was a delay in wifi service connection but once we contacted Milton he fixed it right away. The location is in one of the best neighborhoods in the city, close to the grocery store and Quicentro, which offers any services a person would want. The best part for my kids was the swimming pool. It was warm, clean and comfortable to swim in. Milton and his son Javier as well as the guards were extremely attentive and concerned for our safety and well being the whole time we were there.

  • Staying at El Quetzal was the best decision I've made so far on this trip. The staff at the chocolate factory made me feel so welcome, the room was immaculate and comfortable, the shower was AMAZING, the balcony had a spectacular view and comfy hammock, and of course the chocolate is delicious!! Mindo is an adorable town, and I would have loved to stay longer!

    Mariel2016-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • El Quetzal was a delight ... And the chocolate was muy deliciosa! Everyone made you feel right at home -- Darwin even came in before daylight to fix us coffee and breakfast so we could get the early, early bus! Above and beyond -- highly recommend.

    Christie2016-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great place to stay and learn about the chocolates of Ecuador! Really central and Barbara was fab at giving you places and recommendations!

    Emma2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • The nearby rushing water was a beautiful white noise. Another bonus were the stools/suitcase rests. Warning: that the room no longer has a second bed under the window.

  • From the moment we arrived, the staff at the chocolate factory made us feel welcome. The room's view was fantastic, we slept well enjoying the sounds of the forest and little outside human noise. The food was delicious and we liked it so much that we actually had multiple meals there. Everyone really bent over backwards to help us find our way and to insure that our stay was a good one. I can't recommend this place enough!

    Mercedes2015-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very well insulated room, stays warm during the cold ecuadorian nights. Nice hammock and beautiful view of the town and mountains. Delicious breakfast from restaurant’s menu included and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Chocolate Tour was a nice and informative experience. Cuarto muy bien aislado que retiene bien el calor en las frías noches ecuatorianas. También había una hamaca muy relajante en nuestro cuarto y una bella vista del pueblo y de las montañas. Un delicioso desayuno se puede escoger del menú del restaurante y se incluye en el precio. Los empleados fueron muy amables y serviciales y el tour de chocolate fue una linda e informativa experiencia.

  • Although we didn't get to meet Barbara we can comment on the room etc. The room was really, reallly nice! Big room, nice bathroom and balcony with hammock. Also included was breakfast, any choice off the breakfast menu and also a drink. The breakfast was one of the best we have had in months! We kept waiting for a catch but there wasnt one. Forgot to mention you also get a chocolate tour which was good. Overall this room really is unbelievable value for money and cant recommend it enough.

  • Great value house and pet-friendly. Close to the river for walks and easy access to public transport.

    Joanna2017-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Three of us guys stayed at Neil's place. There was plenty of room for each of us and plenty of hot water. You can catch the #3 bus to town for a quarter. There is a web site that shows all the bus routes if you are on a budget. Cabs are reasonable too. Neil was very close by and easy to contact with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)

    Mitch2017-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay, lots of space and everything was as expected. I recommend this place without hesitation.

    Carlo2017-05-10T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the location of Neil's house. It was close to the center of town, but just out of town enough to have peace and quiet and the bonus was the peaceful river. We wish we could have spent more time enjoying the surroundings, but we will come again. Neil was very accommodating and the house was great.

    Deborah2017-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Neil is a great host, my car got broken and his been very helpful, I'm actually staying some extra days and I'm actually renting another house from Neil! Super recommended as a host and the house is nice and cozy!

  • 10/10. We loved our stay at Neil’s place, it had everything we needed to feel comfortable in the house. Our dogs also had a great time, the river next to the house came in handy for us to walk the dogs with no trouble.

    Cozy, quiet and fully equipped apartment in a newly built house in the style of the German architect Hundertwasser. The 48 m2 (516 sqft) apartment is divided into 1 bedroom, 1 living room, 1 kitchen and 1 private bathroom with hot water. The beautiful beach of Puerto López is just a few steps away. The owners or he administrator are available around the clock for questions about the apartment. They also help with arranging activities in the surrounding area.
    Individually built house, inspired by the natural and humanistic architecture of Hundertwasser: variety instead of monotony, organic and unregulated irregularities instead of the grid system. The colorful and modern kitchen is fully equipped. From the living, dining area you reach the beautiful balcony, where you can enjoy the pleasant sea breeze especially in the evening. In the quiet and cool bedroom you can relax from the many activities offered in the region. The bathroom has a shower with hot water.
    Puerto López is a small, dreamy fishing village with friendly people. From there you can make beautiful trips to the Machalilla National Park with the unique beach, or to the thermal springs of Agua Blanca, as well as to the opposite Isla de la Plata. From April to November you have the opportunity to observe whales.
  • The apartment was wonderful and I wouldn't have minded to stay a few days longer. Generally, the apartment was very clean and after a few hours I already felt at home. It is not in the center of Puerto lopez but everything can be reached within 10 min walking.

    Carina2017-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place - it's fully equipped with a balcony and kitchen along with being close to the beach. It's all I could've wanted out of my stay! The family who owns the apartment and lives in the attached house is incredibly kind as well.

    Connor2017-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • The downstairs apartment is spacious and was clean, about 150 from the beach. The little porch has two hanging chairs and is quite nice to hang out on. Giovanny, who took care of us, was great and very helpful, and even brought us a heap of papaya from the garden! Excellent wifi, because the router is in the apartment itself. On the downside, it was very noisy at night with dogs barking almost all night and roosters crowing from two a.m. or so. This is not Casa Mosaico's fault, of course, because it's the same all over Puerto López, but the fact that the air vents in the apartment are always open did not help. Also, you should be aware there are no views from the apartment or the terrace. All in all, I have not problem recommending this place as long as you're aware that it is relatively basic.

    Claudia2017-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • We were received by neighbors to the host, and they were very welcoming and showed us everything that was necessary (also gave us the best ceviche I have ever had). The house is very pretty and close to the beach, although it is smaller than it appears on the pictures. However, this was not a problem and we stayed 6 girls in this house to celebrate christmas together. The beach in Puerto Lopez is beautiful and calm, and Casa Mosaico is located within walking distance from everything - beach, market, supermarket, restaurants, bars etc. Boris was very quick at responding to any questions we had and the neighbors came around to help, all superkind and lovely people. Make sure to pay a visit to Isla de la Plata and Los Frailes when staying in Puerto Lopez! Overall, we had a great stay in Casa Mosaico :)

    Josefina2016-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Mosaico is the beach house you need to stay! It has everything you need for a comfortable and calm stay. From a comfy bed to a clean kitchen and a hot water shower. It is located 3 minutes walk from the beach and 8 minutes walk from the main beach. This means you do not need to worry about loud music at night! The place is so calm, quite, and private! The room was very clean, the host is friendly and careful. I am sure I will be back to this house!

    Andres2017-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great location that's really close to the beach. The area and entire town has such a sweet feel, and everyone helps you as much as possible. The mototaxis didn't know where it was, so we had to go to the police and figure it out, but after the arrival the location was perfect.

    Karly2016-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is great! It is a small apartment (but very comfortable) that is very well located and safe. The place is clean and has a lovely shower. It is easy to book day tours or drive to nearby attractions. The neighborhood is quiet and cool. I cooked most of our meals on the stove using provided kitchenware and the decent sized fridge was a great help (no oven or microwave, but whatever). Compared to what I've found elsewhere this place is a wonderful value. It is the best place I've booked in Ecuador on AirBnB since I left Quito two months ago. It would be possible to enjoy without speaking Spanish but the property caretaker doesn't speak English.

    Tim2017-08-10T00:00:00Z

  • We really enjoyed our stay, we were in the round house & we had access to the kitchen in one of the other units. Ed & Janice made us feel at home, the pool is great & the variety of birds is amazing & their pet dogs are lovely. It was very good of Ed to meet us at the bus station with a taxi, they are perfectly located near the beach and the supermarket and restaurants on the Malecon. Ballenita is currently being upgraded and a pier is being constructed so when it rains it is rather muddy but still easy to get around on the buses or by taxi

The casitas are in a beautiful oasis with a pool and BBQ they not only invite you to use but invite local expats to gatherings to introduce you to others who have made the move to this great area of South America. The location is almost perfect between the local super market, bus terminal, restaurants and beach. We look forward to returning!!

The flat has access to a really top end pool/jacuzzi/gym area, and is nearby to several good restaurants. We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of 6 weeks travelling around south america, and it really does feel like being at a holiday resort - perfect way to wind down.

The amenities were an added bonus with access to the building's facilities which included a movie theater, a bar to reserve and host private events, a HUGE pool, jacuzzi, sauna, the list goes on and on. Free PARKING was an extra bonus as well, very secure area overall. I DEFINITELY PLAN ON COMING BACK. I only wish Josel was around to meet in person and thank him for his hospitality.

    There are 3 cabanas on the property,good for small or large groups. Each include hot water, wifi, work table, chimney. Private gated access It's a 10-15 min walk from center of Otavalo or $1.50 taxi. I can assist with transfers from Quito airport.
    While the 3 cabanas are on the same property, each provide privacy. You will enjoy tranquil gardens and amazing views of Otavalo and Cotacachi volcano. You can pick your own citrus fruit and avocados. Firewood negociable.
    My property is very quiet and peaceful it is close to town, but far from the noise. I am on the road to beatiful Mojanda Lake and Fuya Fuya. We are walking distance to famous animal market (Saturday) and Plaza de Ponchos market, held days a week
  • Miryan is a warm and friendly hostess. She is ready to help whenever a guest needs it. She goes to town early in the morning to buy fresh bread to serve at breakfast and she also serves a dark roast coffee. It was a joy meeting her and her family. We will definitely stay with her again.

    Susan2015-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic! What a perfect Otavalo experience. Miryan was such a sweet host too, even helping arranging an inexpensive ride to the Quito airport. What a great way to end my Ecuador trip!!!

    Karen2016-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed staying at Miryan's home in Otavolo. Miryan gave us a great welcome and a tour of her amazing property. We stayed in the big cottage - which had a kitchen, bedroom/living room and bathroom. The bedroom had plenty of room with plenty of chairs and a record player/radio. The internet worked really well throughout. We got to do laundry for 3 dollars which is great value for Ecuador. Was great playing with the Llama and the cool big dog. Also enjoyed watching the hummingbirds. Miryan gave us great advice and help to organise onward travel to Banos

    Robert2015-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • It was split second decision when I decided to visit Otavalo. And I was smitten with the listing Miryan has. I love that it's tucked in the country side and away from the hustle and bustle of the town. Miryan was very communicative and easy to get in touch with even with the very short notice. I was warmly welcomed when I arrived. She was soft spoken, very considerate and hospitable as she was so excited to meet me, she showed me her many fruitful plants and trees when I checked in. The view of the mountains is a splendid landscape from her garden. The cabana was what I imagine it to be. Quaint, provincial, folksy and cozy. I should have stayed longer. This is another trip I needed to stay longer for. Thank you so much for having me. I had a very diverting and pleasant stay with you.

    Bryan Anthony2016-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Miryan's cabana has been one of the most pleasant and memorable in all my years of traveling. As a matter of fact, without her help, I would have been wandering around lost and unhappy. She even accompanied me to the grocery to make sure I knew where it was and to translate package info on products. I sincerely and completely recommend her place and hope to return at my first chance.

    Mary2016-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is an awesome place to stay. Miryan is wonderful and so helpful. She went above and beyond to help me connect with local people for my business. The location is perfect for visiting Otavalo and surrounding artisan towns, while being in a more tranquil location outside of the downtown area. The house is surrounded by beautiful flowers and from the property you can see the volcano, mountains, and city lights. All in all, highly recommended!

    Christina2017-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was great, Miryan was welcoming and knowledgable of the local offerings and able to accept our request on short notice. The property is beautiful as well... soo much green :) Thanks!

  • I have been using Air BnB for several years. This was the best experience so far! Miryan is a wonderful host. She will be as interactive and helpful as you want her to be. If you need personal space and privacy, this is your place. If you want to "live like a local" in Ecuador, Miryan is your go-to advisor! She has been renting her lovely cabanas for 27 years and is a wealth of information. She even secured me a ride from the airport in Quito at a drastically reduced rate. This was a huge benefit, as I did not speak Spanish when I arrived and transfers were a major source of concern. Miryan speaks very good English and will also help you learn Spanish. The property is lovely and just as the pictures represent. It is private, peaceful and secure. The cabana I stayed in provided all the comforts of home while still maintaining the Ecuadorean charm that I wanted. Miryan will provide you with a key to the gate and you come and go as you please. I always felt safe...on the property as well as wandering around Otavalo alone. Everyone was polite and friendly. The open markets are awesome and the food is fresh! I didn't eat a preservative for a month!!! Transportation around town is easy and cheap ($1.50 taxi). I preferred walking and didn't have a problem with elevation. On your arrival on the property, give Machu a pat on the head for me. He's a great dog!

    This 2 bedroom apartment has every amenity you could want and is perfect for your vacation. It's I located in front of the famous Malecon of Salinas, with breathtaking views of the ocean. The condo can host 6 people comfortably. Free calls to the US and Canada.
    Extremely secure building with elevator. There is a doorman on site 24/7. Close to all amenities, restaurants, laundry facilities, etc. All utilities included: electricity, TV cable, WiFi. Free phone calls to the US and Canada.
    Salinas is very safe and vibrant city, great for walking, cycling. There are so many restaurant nearby.
  • Beautiful location. I love listening to the waves on the beach. The ocean breeze that comes through the place keeps things cool and fresh. Close enough to the mercado to walk, with lots of things nearby. It's a little bit of a walk to the malecon but I like a good walk to keep from getting lazy!

  • Excellent apartment. The building is right in the Malecon, the view was fantastic. The rooms and bathrooms very modern and clean. It just has everything you need in an apartment from Flat Tv's to hammocks and beach equipment. If you have a car you can park it in front of the buidling, there is 24 hours guard. The Air Conditioners looked new, there is one in each room, you don't need one for the living room since the breeze from the ocean keeps it cool. There is a nice oven all the Utensils you will need. The internet is good and stable if you want to stream netflix and do regular web browsing. If you want to work from there the download speed is 2 Mbps and upstream 0.3 so if you want to have a VoIP call and do regular browsing at the same time you will be fine. If you have to use conference platforms where you have to share your screen to other people then it will be a little slow.

  • Tanya did a wonderful job providing helpful information to us before our stay, as well as answering any question that arose during our stay! The on-site staff was very helpful as well. The apartment is spacious and comfortable. It was very clean with amazing showers and hot water! The internet worked great! We loved having access to a kitchen with cooking utensils and dishes. The location is amazing! We could easily walk to most destinations and it's in the prime location within Salinas. I would absolutely stay here again!

  • Great Place to stay in Salinas. Right near everything. Place looks just like pics. The views from the balcony area are awesome. Host communication was great. The contact person Jose and his crew are awesome as well.

    Gregg2017-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is in a perfect location! Across the street to the beach. Restaurants all around, a wonderful view of the ocean, and yet a quiet and safe neighborhood. The apartment has plenty of room, and everything you need to be truly comfortable. The rates were amazing. Thank you for a great stay.

    Bird/Mammal/Treehouse tower in a 6 acre paradise in the Cloud Forest. The perfect way to immerse yourself in this diverse area. Every nature, bird and photographer lovers dream. Located 3km out of the village of Mindo along the famous birdwatching trail, 5 minutes walking distance from Ziplines, 25 minutes from the waterfalls/cable car.
    This is a truly unique place; we are the only birdwatching tower in the Mindo area. The tower is set over 4 floors offering a 360 degree view on every floor. The flora and fauna can be witnessed at every level of the cloud forest and our tower ensures you get to see everything. Whether you are preparing meals and being distracted by the hummingbirds flashing past or waking up in the bedroom to the sight of a family of parrots flying over or enjoying a beer in the observation floor whilst the Kinkajous visit the feeding platforms! Every floor offers something different. The Bird Tower is located in our 6 acre property that is a mix of landscaped gardens and secondary cloud forest. We have trails all around the property and outdoor seating areas. Come and connect with nature and be truly immersed in the cloud forest.
    We are located 3 kilometers outside the village of Mindo. Our exact location is on the main birdwatching trail that all "twitchers" visit with the guides as the bird activity in our neighbourhood is the best in Ecuador. We are 5 minutes walking distance to the ziplines and 25 minutes to the waterfalls. The walk into the village of Mindo is a beautiful walk taking approx 45 minutes and a taxi ride back to the tower with your groceries is only $4.00 making everything feel very accessible. The tranquility of this neighbourhood is remarkable, with no permanent neighbours around us we wake every morning to the sound of birds and fall asleep to the sound of frogs.
  • Absolutely amazing place to relax and enjoy nature. The night nature walk was tons of fun. I can now say I lived in a treehouse, however briefly. Eric was very friendly and accommodating.

    Mark2017-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • What a truly amazing and exceptional experience to stay in amongst the canopy of the Mindo cloud forest! The fresh air and forest sounds will transport you a world away while enjoying comfort and unmatched hospitality. Eric and Nick even provide you with a phone and supplies to make breakfast! They listened to my interests and provided suggestions and even brought me exotic fruits to try out! Get ready for unique experience in the canopy!

    Jeffrey2017-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Do not hesitate if you want an amazing and unique experience. Epitomy of glamping. Very comfortable! We made our simple meals in the tiny kitchen. We saw multiple toucans! Ziplines 5 mins away. Waterfalls up the road. The property is a destination in itself. Night guided hike and day self guided hiking were great! We should have stayed at least two nights!

    Jennifer2017-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful night staying in the bird tower. We loved that every level had different animals to see. I highly recommend you take a night walk with Eric while you are there as that was one of our highlights of our stay. Eric was a very welcoming host who was very helpful and very willing to assist with anything we needed. I would highly recommend this unique beautiful place. Thank you Eric for your wonderful hospitality.

    Fiona2016-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable and cool (plus breakfast). Eric was extremely helpful in answering our (numerous) questions. Great location, views, a beautiful walk to town, a bit buggy but honestly the mosquitos are slow, lazy, and the bites don't last long so I wouldn't worry about what the other reviews say.

    Robyn2017-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Was a really unique place and had a great host. Very personable and easy to talk to. He clearly loves nature and enjoys sharing that love of nature with guests. I would definitely recommend this place if you want a one of a kind experience and if you love to commune with nature. Hummingbirds galore also. Thank you for a unique and pleasant experience. Take the night walk, it's really neat.

    Caleb2016-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely incredible!!!! Carl has created the most wonderful tree house in the middle of the cloud forest away from the town, but close to Canopy Tour and waterfalls. Feels like Swiss Family Robinson! You actually climb ladder like stairs to each level. He has created a fabulous walk through the jungle on their property and he leads night tours. Great breakfast! He and Laura are wonderful hosts! An amazing experience for us! Want to thank them for creating such a special place for us!

    Kay2015-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We saw the bird tower on our first visit to Mindo during the night walk and decided come back to Mindo again to stay in it. It didn't disappoint. As nature enthusiasts, we loved the experience of the tower. We were able to see so many different birds each day including toucans, parrots, tanagers, and hummingbirds. We also had a visit from a possum one night :-) I would recommend it to anyone who visits Mindo.

And the apartment has the most diverse package of Cable TV available in Salinas, including 10 movie channels, CNN and many more. Until recently I lived in this apartment so it has everything you will require. Fridge/Freezer, Fully Equipped Kitchen, Washing Machine/Dryer, Electric Instant Hot-water System. Building has high level of Security and is located in the safest area of Salinas so you can unwind and relax while feeling safe at all times. Building utilizes swipe discs for elevator and electronic front door access. There is also a Concierge on duty daily, their hours are from 8am to 8pm Sunday to Thursday, 8am to 9pm Friday and 8am to 10pm Saturday. Transport - transport from Guayaquil Airport can be arranged in a private vehicle (small sedan more suited to 2 people with 2 bags each). (taxis in Ecuador are compact so they don't hold a great deal of people nor luggage) Note: To rent a taxi 'on the spot' from the Airport to Salinas could be as much as $100 or more. If needed I can also organise a van if you are travelling with 4-6 people or have multiple bags (recently i organised van for 5 people, 5 carry-on bags and 10 checked-in bags with this costing $150). Car parking available (however realistically there is no need to have your own car as public transport easily covers all needs and will save you a lot of money) Can discuss special rates for long term renters via messages on this website. Why rent at the Barcelo Colon Miramar for $(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) room/one night) or for a one bedroom hotel room with cold-water for $70/$100 dollars or more a night in high season, when you can rent in this luxury apartment with three bedrooms with much more benefits.

  • This is the second year I stayed with Leon. He is an excellent host and the apartment clean and comfortable. Very safe place and one block from the beach. I recommend Leon highly.

    Dr. Amalia2017-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious apartment with everything that we needed for our stay. Leon was very nice and helpful. Apartment is very close to the beach, only a walk away. We especially enjoyed eating breakfast in the large balcony.

    Ruben 2017-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • Salinas is a great beach town and Leon has the perfect apartment for you to enjoy it! It's probably even better than the pictures. It's one block from the beach and malacon. If you want a quieter beach it's not far from Chipipe. Being just one block from the malacon you're surrounded by just about every store and restaurant you could want. Across the street is the Jazz Cafe with the best breakfast any where! Leon is as helpful a host as you could ask for and never bothered us while we were there. There is a nice patio for watching sunsets and enjoying a cervaza. The AC in the master bedroom is a little noisy, it may be fixed by the time you read this. All in all I had a most enjoyable stay in Salinas and staying in Leon's apartment made it even better.

    Gary2015-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • This condo is in a perfect location! One block to the beach, restaurants all around, a wonderful view of the ocean, and yet a quiet and safe neighborhood. Leon is an extremely nice host who makes you feel right at home and is available if you need something. We definitely will be back! Thank you Leon!

    Estelle2017-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in Salinas at Leon's apartment was very enjoyable although the beach was pretty busy and loud due to new year's festivities. The apartment is really clean, comfortable and modern. It is also very well equipped if you are intending to prepare your own meals. In addition the washer and dryer are a plus. Leon is a personable and kind person who will be willing to assist you at all times. We'll definitely consider this property again in the future!

    Diana2015-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Was truly a pleasure staying at this FULLY furnished apartment. I was surprised to find it so furnished with everything we needed plus 5 gallons of bottled water. It is located 1 short block to the beach, 2 blocks from the nearest supermarket, around the corner from one of the best breakfast places I've been to in Ecuador, 2 blocks from a special taxi service that will take you from Salinas to Guayaquil for just $12/person - and it's fast, within 4 blocks of so many restaurants that you won't be able to sample them all. Basically, the location is fantastic! I absolutely recommend this place to other,s and when I return to Salians I will certainly attempt to book here first. If this is available to you right now... BOOK IT... you'll be glad you did.

    Johnny2017-03-11T00:00:00Z

The kitchen is well equipped and you will find all that you need: an electric cooker, a coffee pot, a fridge and many kitchen utensils. Finally, there is an internal garden, where you will find a quit zone to read or relax, surrounded by beautiful local plants.

  • This was a great experience. Bertha was always very responsive and gave great instructions for check in and check out. she leaves the key with the doorman which is excellent since so many flights from the states get in so late. Great location, great view, very clean and trendy. Would absolutely stay here again!

    luis2016-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Location was awesome. If you are not a city person it may seem loud so just bring earplugs. Loved our stay and how reachable Bertha was.

    Marie2017-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Bertha made staying in Quito very easy. She was great at communicating and paired us with a friendly driver, Miguel. The apartment was very accommodating with many beds, necessary appliances, and a spectacular view from the sixth floor; we even had channels on the tv to watch playoff basketball games in the States. Quito is an absolutely enormous city, and her listing is in a very safe part of town and is walking distance from numerous restaurants and sites. I was traveling with three others and we would definitely stay there again!

    Sam2016-05-08T00:00:00Z

    Laura2016-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Very well located nice place. Was very comfortable for our family - 2 adults and 2 children. Bertha was very responsive and helpful to our requests. The driver that she recommended was excellent and reliable. A word of advice, it takes about 10 minutes for the hot water heater to make water hot. Make sure to run the water before showering. If I come back to Quito I would stay there again.

  • The apartment was just as described in the pictures, quite spacious and comfortable. The view of the city was awesome. Its location was perfect since there were lots of restaurants and shops in the area. Communication with host was effective and there were no issues accessing the place. There were some minor maintenance issues which the host took care of it right away. Linens didn’t seem as fresh as they should have been. Overall it was a good experience and I would definitely recommend this apartment.

    Giuliana2016-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Let me start with the positive, good security, and hot water and that's where it ends. This place is overpriced for what you get, comparable to other similar apartments on airbnb. It should be at min. 50 to 75 % the price it is considering most things don't work, are broken, or are not present. So when you run a hospitality business there are 3 main things you should get right- a good nights rest, cleanliness, and hot shower. This place scored 0.25 out of 3 of those. Not what they say it is. Its 2 bedrooms with the 3rd Bedroom outside in open space without any doors, so that would be a space with a bed. Bed and furniture are super uncomfortable. My bed was sinking into the middle. The sheets are so worn out and thin you can see the mattress design. The sheets need replacement. My neck is completely stiff and need a chiro, due to sleeping in the bed in the first room. Could not close the window to our room because the latch is broken, so had to smell Quito air pollution and listen to traffic and construction sounds most of the night. I'm an early riser so, getting to bed early is key and I value quiet. There were no toiletries like shampoo as advertised, no cooking utensils, just a few cups in the cupboard and a big pot. And the cups have holes in them, so your liquids will seep out. They need replacing. People with allergies can't stay here period. The back half of the condo smells like mildew and sewer. The front half with the view is slightly liveable. And the place is really dusty. The shower faucet is broken, so had a really hard time figuring out how to get the water on but fiddled with it and thank God it worked. Hot showers are definitely a necessity. Had a hard time accessing Netflix on their tv as I believe the converter may be damaged or batteries need replacement. Won't be staying here again.

    Amy2017-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • The place was very clean. Ivan & Kassie offered to take us to the airport and they were very nice. One thing I would add to make the stay even better would be towels in the room, instead of the washer machine and maybe write the WiFi password somewhere in the room.

  • Elena was an amazing host. The apartment was steps away from the beach and looked even better than the photos. The apartment was clean and had everything I could possibly need for my weeklong stay. Elena and her husband were very responsive to our calls and Elena even provided me with a ride from the airport to my bus in Quito. I would definitely stay here again if I was traveling to Esmeraldas.

  • Fantastic location inside safe and scure Club Casablanca with beautiful views, sea breezes and the natural lullaby of the waves at night. The apartment is jam packed full of stuff. I was impressed with the large inventory of quality towels, something often overlooked by most other Airbnb hosts in Ecuador. Elena was very responsive and the guards on site were very freindly and helpful. The beach in front of the apartment is clean, wide and uncrowded. However, there are only a few amenities nearby. The village of Same has a half dozen beachfront restaurants is about a 3/4 kilometer walk along the beach. For peace, quiet and safety you can't beat it.

  • Elena's apartment was lovely - a truely relaxing beach vacation! Of importance: it's not possible to connect to wifi in hr apartment, only by the pool. The connection is also very slow and intermittent.i f you need internet access during your stay, I'd recommend staying elsewhere.

    Velma2016-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Ocean views, sea breezes...Elena's place is perfect! We enjoyed being able to step outside and be at the beach right away. Long walks along the beach while collecting shells and driftwood was one of our favorite activities. Also having he boogie boards available made it so much fun for our little girl. Elena's place feels fresh the moment you come in with all the comforts of home and a well equipped kitchen. We truly felt comfortable and recommended it highly.

  • We stayed 3 nights with Juancho sharing his lovely apartment in the historic part of Quito. Juancho is very welcoming and lovely to speak with about places to go in the area. He provided us with a list of local restaurants. Our room had an amazing view of the city and the apartment was located close to restaurants and historic sites. The streets are very steep and getting down into the city was easier than walking back home. Restaurants are very happy to call for cab service. A few recommendations from us would be to have bottled water available as we arrived quite late and stores were not open and we would have appreciated a paper map of the area as using our cellular maps was difficult without wifi. Thanks Juancho for a wonderful stay in Quito!!

  • Amazing view, just stunning. Very good value, and a very friendly host. Couple of minor things to note. It's a bit of a steep hike from the main square to the place. Be prepared to be out of breath if you decide to walk. Also, if you need to self-checkout, then you really need to have 2 people, because you need to leave the key in the apartment, but it's needed (or very helpful) to exit. Was a bit of a pain because my friend who was staying with me had left earlier.

  • Best value we have had on our trip through Ecuador!!! We booked five nights in Banos at Ricardo's place and it probably wasn't enough. There is so much to see and do here. After a full day of hiking, biking, white water rafting, etc... It was wonderful to come home to such a nice house! Plenty of room to spread out and relax. Full size kitchen, large dining room, even a hammock room for chilling out. There are two dogs and a cat on premise, all very sweet. Ricardo's brother Daniel was there to meet us and speaks good english, which was a big help. If your going to Banos then you must stay here!!!

  • Look no further, Ricardo's home is the best place to stay in all of Baños! This house was more than comfortable for our group of 7, there is plenty of room and we never felt cramped, the house is very spacious. There is a bathroom attached to each bedroom, and the showers are wonderful and very hot (such a treat in Ecuador). The house is very safe and secure, we never felt nervous leaving our stuff, there is a tall fence that surrounds the whole building and and gate that locks. The house is located on the edge of the center of Baños close enough to walk to everything within a couple minutes, yet far enough away to be quite and peaceful at night. There is a great park with a playground, swings, and basketball courts just a block or so from the house. We loved this house and plan to come back to it every time we are in Baños. Ricardo was the perfect host, he was attentive to all of our needs yet never intrusive. Ricardo and his family, including the dogs, were wonderful and we loved the few moments we got to chat with them. I could not recommend a better place to stay, it was as good as it gets!

  • Ricardo and his family are so kind and welcoming. They were very helpful with anything we needed. The house is very large and would be great for a family or big group. Thanks again!

  • I booked last minute and Ricardo was able to accomodate no problem. Be sure to ask for the cross streets because the address on here isn't great for taxi's. Although it's not a far walk from the bus station. The house is large and clean. Ricardo lives in the home behind the house I stayed in with his family. There are two dogs on the property that are friendly. One got out and after chasing it Ricardo said they roam and come back. So not to worry. Wifi is great. Kitchen has everything. 1 block from the supermarket and mercado. They only speak a little English but we used (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) translate and (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) to communicate. There is a main road behind the house and it quiets diwn about 22.00 I Highly recommend staying here.

  • Ricardo's family home is large...like very very very large. There is plenty of room for privacy even during a group reunion. The showers are hot with plenty of water pressure. It located about 5-minutes walk to Banos largest and most famous hot springs. Lots of local taxis and a local buss stop just 2 minutes walk down the hill. Make certain you visit (URL HIDDEN) paseo los monos puyo, ecuador in Puyo and bring a bag of animal medical supplies if you can. Bandage wraps, antibiotic ointment, etc . They get no state funds and rely solely on donations for treatment of injured animals. $2.75 by bus plus a $4 cab fair to their Amazon location. The moden comfortable gray hound type bus is at the main Banos terminal or about 8 minutes walk from Ricardo's place. Ricardo's family has two amazing dogs and one cat. The black dog will walk with you through the town almost like he knows the best places to go. He works for chicken or anything that "taste like chicken"..lol. The local food was all great. don't believe everything you read on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). The weather ....well don't believe what the internet has for the weather AT ALL!. I think the sensor must be up high near the top of one of the amazing volcano's. The internet says rain/ice/snow and it would be a 70 degree sunny day all day even during rainy season. We enjoyed every minute of our week long stay. Do not miss the Banos Zoo...OMG it was awesomesauce! I think we paid $3 entry and $1.50 cab fare to get there. One can walk but it is about 5km's. Ice Cream...if you are a expert try "Nice Cream" located in the center of town. Yummy with no food colors. They use real fruit and chocolate. I could go on writing for days. You will not be disappointed with Ricardo's place. It is not new or modern but it is in the center of everything and not "sterile" like most hotels. From Quito's Main Southern Terminal to Banos by a modern Bus we paid about $4.50 each for the 4.5hr trip. Some buses have bathrooms and wifi but you have to ask. They leave every 15-20 minutes 7 days a week. God Bless

  • No problems at all. They provided an extra mattress so we could be a little more comfortable with our group. We were barely there, but certainly appreciated the space. Ricardo was pleasant and professional.

  • It was very pleasant to stay at Ricardo's place. Him and his family were very accommodating. Beautiful and comfortable home.

    Our 1 bedroom 1 bathroom house on the banks of the Pastaza is surrounded by mountains. We are 4 km outside town, yet still close to thermal springs and adventurous excursions. Fall asleep to the sound of the rushing river, and wake up to spectacular views. Please note that this house can accommodate ONLY 2 adults, and up to 3 children UNDER 13 years of age. The bunk beds are only 160 cm long. If more than 2 persons aged 13 and above stay, fees of $20 per person will be charged.
  • My family could not be happier with our stay and we plan to come back soon. Anyone considering staying here will be pleasantly surprised with this 5 Star accommodation. It was the best AirB&B experience I've ever had in one of the most beautiful places on earth! The manager that greeted us was a wealth of knowledge and helped us at every turn. No reason to try anywhere else in Baños.

    Andrew2017-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • This place is awesome, beautiful view and a little out of town. Quiet and peaceful. The walk isn't so bad into town, but would mostly use a taxi that was inexpensive. Steve was an incredible host, and great guide if there was any questions on where to go or what to do. Totally recommend this place to anyone.

    Thomas2017-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Are you still looking for the most gorgeous place to stay in Baños? Don't look any further. This place is ABSOLUTELY perfect. Photos don't do any justice. Perlita made our stay just perfect, she payed attention to every detail. The house is so comfortable, cozy, modern, practical. It has everything you need to enjoy of a great getaway. The design of the bathroom is absolutely gorgeous. And the fireplace is the perfect touch at night. We enjoyed the magnificent view of the Tungurahua volcano and the sound of the waters of the Pastaza river was like music to our ears. Super close to the city, around 5 minutes by car. There is a detailed list at the house with restaurants available and recommendations of what to do in the area. Apparently breakfast is not included but when you open the refrigerator you have everything imaginable to cook breakfast: eggs, milk, cream, juices, a delicious basket of a variety of fresh fruits, coffee, tea, chocolate, jams, butter, granola and like that wasn't enough, warm and fresh bread arrives to your door to make your breakfast just delicious! This is so far the best Airbnb place my family and I have found in our year in Ecuador. Can't wait to have some free time to go back.

  • Sandra’s home is phenomenal and her house manager Perlita is a delight. We needed a last minute change to our plans and had to arrive early. Sandra was so accommodating and helped us organize arriving early. Perlita stayed up to greet us and showed us around the home. Pictures do not do this place justice. They stocked the fridge for us, provided great details about the area, cab drivers and places to eat/things to see. When I️ woke up the first day I️ was treated to stunning views of the mountains and volcanoes and delicious homemade bread delivered daily. I️ highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Banos!

    Cayla2017-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Perlita was an amazing property manager. She is kind and helpful And went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and happy as well as got to enjoy all banos has to offer. She helped arrange taxis, activities, brought amazing fresh bread to us every morning. I hope to come back to this location soon. Muchas gracias for an amazing stay in banos

    Ruthie2017-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed at this wonderful property for 7 nights on our honeymoon in Banos and had such an incredible experience. Perlita is very sweet, helpful and stocked the house with everything you could possibly need. We laughed in retrospect when we inquired beforehand if they would offer butter and jam with the fresh bread because they provided so much more including bread, coffee, tea, jam, butter, juices, granola, filtered water, milk, etc. Perlita helped set us a taxi for our ride to Quito and even looked into many different tour operators for us. We took full advantage of the wonderful fireplace and given there were no other Airbnb guests in the houses we used the hammock chairs in the adjacent home which was great! Something to note, although it wasn't any issue for us, we did find that town was more of a 50 minute walk (at least to the center of town where we headed) than the 30 minutes we originally thought so you'll likely take cabs for the most part. We didn't have a working phone but we did use (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and the tour company we used (Imagine Ecuador) graciously picked us up each morning at no extra charge. Cabs to and from town are also only $2-$2.25 so they're very affordable. Sandra/Steve/Perlita - thank you for making our honeymoon so special!

    Rachel2017-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend Sandra and Steve's place. It is truly a five-star experience. The house is fully equipped with all the best quality accessories you can imagine. Besides, it is located in a panoramic spot with a splendid view to the mountains and has a lush garden. Sandra and Steve live next door and are really welcoming and helpful. They provided useful information about Baños and were really thoughtful with small details, such as leaving fresh bread on the early morning. I could go on describing and pointing out the advantages of staying here, but I will sum up saying that my stay has been extremely pleasant from every point of view.

    Best Price/new rooms all private bathroom/confortable/service We are renting 12 very comfortable new rooms in a completely restructured old house of the1940, in the turistic and cultural área of la Mariscal, a centric neighborhood of Quito.
    WE HAVE CAPACITY FOR 26 PERSONS SO PLEASE ASK THE CALENDAR WORK ONLY WITH TWO. WE OFFER BREAKFAST AT EXTRA PRICE. OUR SPECIAL PRICES FOR AIRBNB COMMUNITY The House is quite big and it includes different social áreas as one big terrace with many kind of flowers and plants, a bbq área, balconies, a tvcable room, a dining room, with kitchen facilities to name a few. Our Rooms , are completely independent from the rest of the house; they are very spacious and have big external Windows wich make them very bright. Some rooms have a doublé bed, while others can have one single or 2 single beds. All have a good closet, desktop and private bathroom with shower and hot wáter available all day . The rooms all have 3 kinds of illumination, direct, indirect and a secific light for reading. Hi speed Wi-fi conection is present in the entire building, also in the open áreas.
    The house is located in a sunny and peaceful square with gardens of flowers and trees where many birds and hummingbird are free to fly. The Historic center af Quito is just at 8 minutes by taxi or bus. The Mariscal área in one of the most interesting district of Quito. In fact its streets are full of beautiful traditional houses with european arquitectura, art galleries, museums, handcraft markets and gourmet shops, bars with live music, international and tipical restaurants, schools for learning lenguages (spanish and english principally), salsa and other kind of dance schools.
  • The house is lovely -- actually, the entire square is lovely, with all the houses painted in their own unique way. The bedroom was very comfortable, with a private bath. Everything was very clean. Adjusting the water temp was tricky in the shower, but otherwise absolutely no complaints! There is a separate kitchen area for the guests to use, plus a tv room. The rooms are on the 3rd floor, so there are stairs to deal with. Beatrice was incredibly welcoming -- inviting me and another guest to take coffee down the street, then walking us to the market at the park and negotiating for me (which was welcomed with my limited Spanish). She helped me with an inexpensive cab to the airport. I enthusiastically give my stamp of approval.

  • Miguel was very friendly and helpful. His place was SOO cool. It had a very modern and classy feel, which was very nice after staying in some rougher conditions in a country where I didn't speak the language or was familiar with how everything worked. It felt like a home. The windows had a really cool arched shape, the shower had a skylight, it was really clean, it was in a really interesting neighborhood with lots of restaurants to walk to. There was a safe, which I appreciated. There were other rooms in the building with other travellers, which I loved. Travellers are very interesting people to meet. It felt an a hostel in that way. Miguel was very helpful with pointing out great things to do in town and got me a discounted taxi to the airport. I wish I lived there!!

  • Miguel was not around when i went to Art Plaza, but he remotely helped me all through the process of booking and arranging for a taxi. The location is very nice. Quiet, yet close to a lot of restaurants etc. The terrace is nice to hang out in. The room itself , clean and comfortable. I will surely stay there again, if I needed to be in Quito again.

  • This place was awesome. My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights. It was in a great location has an awesome little bar beside it then we went to a few times. Beatriz was so kind and welcoming, we felt at home here. He room was so beautiful and the washroom and shower were incredible! The rest of the house was equally as nice including a super cute patio with lots of plants. Highly recommend staying here! Also has a great price! And they supply filtered water for you which is so kind.

    Megan 2014-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful old house filled with flowers and plants on an artistically painted plaza with a fountain. A short walk to the many restaurants and bars of La Mariscal, but far enough away to be quiet at night. Run by a lovely family; Miguel Angel’s mom Beatriz who lives there is wonderful and gave me lots of useful tips. My room was spacious and spotless. Shared kitchen with free tea and coffee. When I went to Otavalo for a night they were kind enough to let me keep my room and store my things there. Inexpensive laundry service. Miguel Angel has two excellent drivers working for him who can take you to the airport, bus terminal, or Mitad del Mundo.

    Ingrid2016-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Miguel and Beatriz are THE most friendly and helpful people we met. The house was spotless and unique. The fixtures are a work in progress but will be fabulous when completed. The location is also unique, we were fed and entertained right next door. Mucho gracias Miguel and Beatriz. Heide and Robin.

  • Rosybel y Yordy were very helpful and very kind. Excellent service by them. Nice breakfast at the patio. Great place to eat dinner with live music next door. Walking distance to Plaza Foch and Public transportation.
