Reviewed 20 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Our family of four rented this condo for a little over a week in December on our first trip to Ecuador. The apartment is tastefully decorated, very clean and well equipped with everything you might want or need. The condo is on the ground floor and doesn't have a view of the ocean, but the complex is right on the beach and you get from your door to the beach in a few steps. The hosts, Mark and Jeri, were great. They met us at the door when we checked in and were available to quickly address any questions or needs. They even took the time one night to show us around the happening little town of Montanita. The beautiful sandy beach in front of the condo is incredible for walking which we did a lot, both into the nearby town of Mangalarto or a couple of kilometers further into Montanita. We also spent a lot of time sitting under the umbrellas beside the large pool looking out over the ocean and in the evening watching the sunsets. The only minor drawback was that there were no nearby...

Management response:

Tom, we loved hosting you and your family! Thank you so much for choosing us and we look forward to seeing you again someday! Safe travels! - Mark and Jeri

Reviewed 17 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We were very fortunate to rent this condo on short notice, especially so because Mark and Jeri really had to hustle to get everything ready for us (they weren't planning on renting so soon and we were their first renters). They really outdid themselves in getting the unit ready for us in time; it was beautifully decorated, furnished and well-equipped with new 'everything' and lots of nice, warm touches (e.g., books, games, DVDs, etc.) to make it feel like home. The condo is steps from the ocean and a large pool, is gated and patrolled 24/7, and is close to Montanita (surfing, restaurants, night-life, etc.). Transportation by bus or taxi in the area or just about anywhere in Ecuador is fun, inexpensive and reliable. Our hosts live a few hundred yards down the beach and were gracious, helpful, informative and always available. We had a wonderful stay and would very highly recommend it. Mark and Jeri and the unit definitely exceeded our expectations - WELL DONE and many thanks!

Management response:

Thanks Malcom and Jenn! We could not have asked for better guests! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope that if you ever return to this area that you consider staying with us again! Safe Travels!
