Our stay in Cuenca was wonderful. The location of Dave's condo is PERFECT. You are within a 10 minute walk to the river, Café San Saban (one of our favorite places to have breakfast), Mangiore (right across the street and a wonderful Italian restaurant) and the cultural district with beautiful churches and museums. I always felt safe on the streets and the locals are always willing to give directions and practice their English (or let you practice your Spanish). The accommodations are perfect - very clean, floors are beautiful tile and steps are a polished wood (both are priceless)! We cooked at home several nights and the kitchen is very user friendly.The outdoor sitting area was perfect for a lazy afternoon of relaxation and the roof top "sun area" has an unsurpassed view of the surrounding churches. The wireless internet is GREAT - as soon as we would start up the stairs to the front door, messages would start arriving through our cell phones. We walked an average of 7 miles a day enjoying the sites and were never bored! Make sure you take the $5 double decker bus tour from the center of town - well worth the money and allows you to get a feel for the layout of the city. We also enjoyed the museums and walk through the Inca ruins. Dave has a wonderful handbook for his guests that lists great restaurants, major attractions and sites you shouldn't miss. The most amazing part of this entire trip (we were there 12 days) is all the Americans and Canadians that befriended us. Every where we turned an American was offering directions or suggestions of things to do and see. We met more new couples in the time we were there than we meet in our hometown in a month! We will be back and certainly recommend Dave's condo!
my wife and i finished up a 3 week trip to ecuador with a 4 night stay at dave's beautiful condo in the heart of cuenca's historic district....after having only 4 days of sun in our 2 weeks on the coast it was somewhat ironic that we had sun everyday in cuenca (albeit with a few showers thrown in to justify the spring-like weather that we had heard about)......maribel the property agent could not have been more helpful.....prior to our arrival we received an e-mail outlining things about the condo as well as how to get around and other very useful information.....on arrival she met us at the condo and then gave us a quick tour in her car before dropping us at the local grocery store (i should mention that by prior arrangement she had partially stocked the pantry and refrigerator)......the condo is immaculate and situated and a beautifully restored historic building.....everything is very modern.....but the best part is the pair of rooftop decks.....fantastic views of the city and complete privacy.....everything is within walking distance....taxis are $2-3 per trip.....the most we spent was $5 for a drive to banos.....a highly recommended day trip.....dave's condo comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED....our only regret was not having more time.....next visit will be a minimun of a week probably 2.....thanks again dave and maribel for sharing your condo and city with us....david & coca
We spent 2 weeks exploring the beautiful historic city of Cuenca, while staying in this condo. Dave's place has everything you need in a "home away from home". I could walk to everything in the historic central area or take a taxi or bus. Dave was a very helpful welcoming host who did everything he could to ensure we had a great visit. He promptly answered any questions and solved any problems we encountered. He arranged to have some groceries stocked to tide us over until we could go shopping.
Our favourite restaurant was Mangiare, right across the street from the condo - very friendly staff and great food with an Italian slant. We enjoyed all the many restaurants we tried, from local fare to Spanish, Argentinian and Italian. I loved all the open markets for the local crafts, flowers and of course the local food markets...so many different fresh fruits and vegetables!
Taking tours of the old historic churches, monasteries and hospitals was fascinating. Be sure to visit the museum of The Ministario de Cultura del Ecuador, including the archeological site and gardens behind it.
Thank you Dave for all your help!
