I lived many years abroad in Europe, so I enjoy to have guests at home. Be welcome and enjoy Guayaquil!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
ROSE MARY’S HOUSE IS SITUATED ON THE SIDE OF A HILL OVER LOOKING THE CITY. IT IS AS ADVERTISED AND MORE. THE BEDROOMS ARE AIR CONDITIONED WHICH WERE COOL AND COMFORTABLE WHEN WE ARRIVED. THE VIEWS FROM THE DINNING ROOM, KITCHEN NOOK AND MASTER BEDROOM ARE UNIQUE. AIRCRAFT CAN BE SEEN LEAVING AND ARRIVING AT THE AIRPORT BUT ARE NOT CLOSE ENOUGH TO BE NOISEY. THE NIGHT VIEWS ARE IMPRESSIVE FROM THE MOUNTAINS TO THE HIGH RISES ALONG THE INLET.
THE POOL IS VERY INVITING AND REFRESHING. THE WEATHER IN GUAYAQUIL WAS A LITTLE WARM AND HUMID WHEN COMPARED TO OUR PREVIOUS 44 DAYS IN CUENCA. THERE IS PLENTY OF ROOM IN THIS MULTI-LEVEL BEAUTIFUL HOME. THE LAYOUT ALLOWS FOR MULTIPLE ACTIVITIES THAT WILL NOT INTERFERE WITH EACH OTHER NOR HAVE NOISE FROM ONE DISTRACTING FOR THE OTHER. THERE IS A TWO CAR PARKING GARAGE WITH ONE RESERVED SLOT. SECURITY HAS BEEN WELL PLANNED AND MORE THAN ADEQUATE.
MY WIFE, MYSELF AND OUR HUSBAND-WIFE BUSINESS PARTNERS WILL STAY AT ROSEMARY’S EACH TIME WE TRAVEL THROUGH GUAYAQUIL ON OUR WAY TO OR FROM CUENCA.
Rosemary es una persona muy amable, fue por nosotros al aeropuerto y nos llevó posteriormente, obviamente le pagamos por el servicio. La respuesta a nuestras solicitudes fue regular, una semana estuvo enferma y no pudimos resolver unos problemas que tuvimos con el apartamento.
El "hermoso apartamento con piscina" realmente era un cuarto en una casa grande, descuidada, que no correspondía con las fotos de la página. No teníamos cama sino un colchón en el piso, no teníamos cocina sino una parrilla para calentar la comida, no había agua caliente, la piscina estaba sucia y no la usamos por miedo a enfermarnos. La casa parecía una bodega porque tenía cosas viejas almacenadas.
Algo que nos disgustó era que no teníamos privacidad y Rosemary aparecía sin avisar con otras personas a mostrar los cuartos.
Cuando llegamos fuimos ubicados temporalmente en un apartamento grande y luego trasladados al cuarto de la casa. Esta apartamento estaba igual de sucio y descuidado.
En resumen nunca tuvimos lo que se ofreció por internet.

Quaint room in a marvelous old home. The pool can be a joy on hot, sunny days. Close to shopping area and food outlets. Be sure to ask the hostess for the door opener. Hostess couldn't have been more helpful. She made up for any shortcomings in the property.
Hello! I just returned from Ecuador yesterday and it was amazing time, one of my main highlights was my stay w/ Rosemary! Take it from someone that has stayed at the Hilton Colon, Courtyard Marriott, and Hampton inn Guayaquil, this place is what you really need to have a pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable time in GYE. I was looking to get away in the city I truly love, and this place was in the center of everything. Want to go to have some awesome food, head to the restaurants in Urdesa, minutes down the hill. Looking for a trendy, fun time? Head to the newly established Plaza de Lagos , a 10 minute car/cab ride away. (Not to mention the airport is 5 mins away.) I have to also mention that Rosemary was an excellent hostess. I had 2 incidents- my credit card was blocked given transactions in a foreign country and she took me to all banks necessary/ made w/ me the necessary calls back to my card provider. Also, I left my favorite sweater at my stay and she was nice enough to hold on to it for me to pick it up when I returned after a few days outside Guayaquil. I will also leave you with my greatest impression of my experience at the apt: in an Isabel Allende-realism magic sort of way, you will feel the social events that once were lived at the pool area, you will be warm by the family love that filled the huge home time ago and see from a balcony hill the beauty of a classic city, Guayaquil.
Worst experience, we booked an apartment instead we were giving a large house in disrepair, house was dirty, refrigerator was filthy and the door lock was broken with no keys(needed for our own security) We had to force open the door because the door locked and there no keys to open the door. I ended up paying a $100 to replace a broken,lock for a new one plus the extra charge for someone to help me force open the bedroom lock. All of this happened because Rosemary, the owner, never responded to multiple phone calls. At least 10 phone calls were made but her voicemail box was full, unable to leave messages. On top of this she now claims that the house keys were not returned and wants to place a bogua claim on my deposit. I am sure you have had similar complaints from other dissastified clients. If your care about your reputation, this owner shold be terminated asap. Alberto Campain, MD
Rosemary is the best host, and amazingly patient. She's always responding quickly to whatever problems we have. The place is very comfortable, independent, so cool and is good located. I really recommend this place
I really liked my stay at Rose's home. It was spacious, and in a good and safe part of the city. The internet worked great, as did the air conditioning. There were some leaks that needed to be fixed in the bathroom, as well as some ant issues in the kitchen. However, based on my dealings with Rose, I believe it is her strong desire to address these issues quickly and effectively. She is very helpful and knowledgable about her city and country. The view from multiple terraces is fabulous. Coffee and a cigar every evening made for a great stay.
rosemary is a very gracious, kind and hospitable host. the house is very nice. i had a good stay here :-)
