Location. There is no better location in Cuenca! We are on Luis Cordero, the same street as the main central plaza Parque Calderon, just 2 blocks from the plaza between it and the Tomebamba river. Watch parades or fireworks right from the huge terrace! We are surrounded by the best restaurants in town, open air markets, churches, plazas, bars, cafes and theaters. You can walk from this central location to pretty much anywhere you may want to go, without climbing stairs. If you want to leave the historic center or river area, taxis are readily available on our street and bus stops are nearby. To top if off, you can enjoy being in the heart of the action, without the noise, thanks to our commercial-grade double-laminated double-paned acoustic-control windows throughout.
Luxury. Enjoy all the comforts of home and more in our finely appointed home. One master suite has views and terrace access, with a modern bathroom plus a jacuzzi tub for 2 in a rock walled alcove and a large flat-screen TV. The other master suite has charming colonial decor with a huge rock and granite wood-burning fireplace and bathroom with dual sinks and rain head shower. Both master suites feature king sized beds of the highest quality and comfort available, featuring a full 4 inches of memory foam pillowtop on a supportive orthopedic core. They also include private bathrooms with showers, bathrobes, bowl sinks and granite. The third bedroom is rustic with two comfortable orthopedic twin beds, views and terrace access. All beds feature a choice between 500 thread count cotton or warmer microfleece linens, as well as fluffy down alternative comforters with duvets and blankets. All three bedrooms and the living room feature vaulted ceilings with exposed wood beams. The social bathroom has a glass block shower, toilet, sink with granite and even a urinal. The gourmet kitchen features granite, a dishwasher, 6 burner stove and oven, microwave and large fridge with filtered water and ice in the door. The Living room has a soft comfortable sectional and a 42" LG plasma TV with a huge DVD library and Direct TV with English channels. The entire apartment includes a terrace with unobstructed 5th floor views over centro, including a breakfast bar overlooking the new cathedral.
Livability. Our home is cleaned to a strict standard between each set of visitors, and cleaned and stocked according to a checklist, so that you can rest assured that you'll have a wonderful stay free of the common pitfalls of stays in a foreign country. The kitchen is equipped with all of the dinnerware, cookware, silverware and barware you will need, plus small and large appliances. We provide paper towels, sugar, salt, pepper, coffee and tea. The towels are plush and plentiful and we provide thick toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner, liquid soap and blow dryers in each of the three bathrooms. We provide 3 huge flat-screen televisions, one smaller flat-screen TV, all with DVD players, a huge video library, 2 high-speed wireless internet connections, and even a brand new 17" laptop (and printer) so that you can leave your computer at home! We also provide a free local cell phone (just add minutes) and a home phone. The building has an elevator straight to our door that only services 3 apartments, so you won't have to climb any stairs like in most centro homes, or even wait for a busy elevator like in a high rise. The building is very secure with a friendly guard from morning to night. When the guard isn't there, you are behind 3 locked metal doors. The apartment is quiet as it is 5 stories up, with new acoustic-control windows throughout and no walls are shared with any neighbors. There are just 2 other residences, and the rest of the building is occupied by offices, mostly law offices. If you have a rental car, there is a parking lot next door. If you have more than 6 people, there is an extra twin mattress to sleep one more, and a dining room table for 8. For your comfort, all rooms have black-out curtains, there are portable heaters, a wood burning and an electric fireplace, extra pillows and blankets, and virtually unlimited hot water. There is a full-sized washer with hot water and gas dryer for your use. We use only hypo-allergenic fragrance-free detergents.
A lot of care has gone into this home and its contents. Please treat it with respect and preserve it's beauty for the next guests. Please no shoes on the furniture, no smoking inside or out with doors open, no pets without prior approval, no toilet paper in the toilets (as in most of Latin America) and report any maintenance issues as soon as possible. We ask that only well-behaved and supervised children use the apartment. Please respect our neighbors by being quiet in the common areas and not having any parties. Please be mindful of our bills and the environment, by turning off lights and heaters when not in use. Also, please leave the cleaning of the fireplace and linens to the maid.
For security reasons, we will make a copy of your passport's photo and visa page. We will only rent to vacationers who can verify their legal presence in Ecuador.
