What Past Guests Are Saying
We stayed here with our in-laws and our son and we were not disappointed! This place is beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, and right in the center of town. We have stayed in many places in Cuenca and one thing that caught our attention is how quiet this apartment is. They put special windows in that cut the city sound down quite a bit. This is a great place to stay for that special occasion! In fact we hope to stay there for our 25th anniversary.

The Best of the Best
A great experience from the moment we booked the apartment until we were ready to go. The owners and apartment caretaker are professional, conscientious, and are very helpful. The apartment is a dream. Completely comfortable, perfect location (a few minutes walk to the city center, restaurants and cafes all around, museums nearby, and the lovely river trail just a moments walk away) and has all of the modern needs for your stay in Cuenca.

Thank you so much, Jen, for your wonderful review! It really means a lot to receive such praise from a fellow Cuenca expat. I'm glad we were able to provide your friends with a comfortable, modern and well-located home-away-from-home during their vacation. Thanks again for taking the time to write this review, and please keep us in mind for all of your future needs!
Wonderful Penthouse in Center of Cuenca
We stayed March 2nd to March 14th. The location is as described in downtown Cuenca. You are blocks aways from many attractions and wonderful places to eat. It fun to walk across the street each monoring and buy breakfast breads and sit on the large balcony and start the day with a cup of coffee. The interior finish of the penthouse is first rate. We made meals in the well appointed kitchen. The three bedrooms are large and the beds were confortable. A great place for 2 couples to share or a family. The manager Beverly was wonderful checking in to see how we were doing and answering our questions. The unit is on the forth floor overlooking downtown Cuenca. Private eleavator to the penthouse floor. Loved the washer and dryer as we were able to pack lighter as we could wash our clothes. The noise level inside the unit was quiet as the outside glass was very thick cutting down the outside distraction. Drivers love to use their horns. The beautiful main park was 2 blocks away. If you are going to use the kitchen markets are just a $2.00 cab ride. I must also mention the building security person Luis was also wonderful. Each day he greeted us as we went and came back to the entrance. The big thing we loved was the space of the unit compared to staying in a hotel room. Nice open floor plan and very relaxed place to stay and enjoy Cuenca. One block away a local bar with 2X1 Bloddy Mary's starting at 8:00 a.M. Cuenca is a wonderful city to visit and the relaxed feeling in the Penthouse added to the experience. The food in Cuenca was just great from a large lunch for $2.25 to the best places for $12.00. The local people are wonderful and the city felt safe. Take normal steps as you would in any city. Do not dress with flash and do not wear a lot of jewlery. Keep your cell phone secure, wallet in your front pocket. Take just enough money for the day. Staying in this Penthouse will add a very positive experience while in Cuenca

Thank you so much, Jim, for your kind and thorough review, and for being such excellent guests! We also had our favorite places when we lived in the penthouse, but now you make me want to return and try eating the fresh-baked bread on the terrace or perhaps in a picnic by the nearby river. I'm glad we could make your stay as comfortable as possible, and that you enjoyed the central location, elevator, plush beds, stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, and acoustic control windows. You are right about the horns in Cuenca, and there are also car alarms, roosters, and barking dogs depending on your area. Replacing the windows ended up being a huge challenge in the UNESCO heritage area, so I'm glad to hear that the new windows enhanced your experience. I'm sure your tips and suggestions will come in handy for our future guests. Thanks again for taking the time to write this review, and I'll be sure to pass your positive feedback on to Beverly and Luis!
This Penthouse is awesome for a big group or family!

Thank you so much John and Alexandra for choosing to stay with us. We were lucky to have your group as our first guests, and appreciate your taking such good care of our home. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay, including the apartment and our central location. Like you, I'm also very fond of the nearby restaurants. I hope you'll choose to stay with us again the next time you are in Cuenca!
