Cuenca apartment

1 bedroom / 1 bathroom / sleeps 2

“The best in Cuenca” This is the best place in Cuenca. The host, Stuart, is incredibly accommodating He takes the time to introduce you to the other guests and the courtyard becomes a great community space. Spotlessly clean and well appointed. The kitchenette was perfect for me to make coffee and keep a few cold cervazas on hand, with a Peruvian, a Mexican, and a Spanish restaurant across the street and a Columbian restaurant next door there was no need to cook. A short walk to Parque Calderon and all the markets. Hot hot water and all you could want. This will be my first choice when back in Cuenca.

Beautiful Apartment with Stunning Terrace View

Cuenca apartment

2 bedrooms / 1 bathroom / sleeps 4

“Location, Charm & Incredible Terrace” I'm just winding up a two-month stay at this apartment, and it has been a pleasure living here. First, the location is ideal: You are right off avenida Solano, within blocks of markets, restaurants, etc and a pleasant 20, 25 minute walk to El Centro. The building is fairly new, and has a bakery, a pastry shop and a deli on the ground floor. There is always a security guard near the door, and the building is immaculate. Taxis are readily available. The owners live in the building and are immediately responsive to any questions or concerns. The apartment is is bright and comfortable. A huge skylight above the entry stairwell floods the kitchen and adjacent areas with light. There is a very comfortable leather sofa, a table for four and a nice-sized and well-equipped kitchen, as well as a full-sized washer and dryer. The bedrooms have loads of built-in storage and one of them has a large flat screen TV with a DVD player and basic cable. The wireless internet signal is strong and reliable. There is a hospital nearby, and avenida Solano is a major street so you do get some street noise but nothing more than you'd hear in any urban area. What really makes this apartment special, though, is the terrace. Hummingbirds visit the feeders at each end, and they are fearless! There is a gas grill as well as a patio heater for the chilly evenings, and comfortable furniture for relaxing and enjoying the ambiance. The constantly changing view is absolutely incredible!

Cuenca apartment

“Comfortable and Great Location” This apartment In Portal del Sol had everything we could have asked for. It was clean and the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking meals. The washer and dryer also came in handy for our month long stay. The apartment was about 3 blocks to the Yanuncay River with walking paths. There were several buses within 2 blocks that we used and they went to old town and the main bus station. This made it very easy to go almost anywhere we wanted to go. The Central Corral store was a short 20 minute walk and had anything that expats would expect to have at home. Groceries, meat market, hardware and home goods.(Hearing aids too!!) If you don't want to walk you can take a bus for .25cents or a taxi for $1.50. Darwin was a great host. He was always available by phone and responded within 5 minutes if a message was left. We hired Darwin on a Sunday to drive us to 3 towns outside of Cuenca that were known for their sterling jewelry, panama hats and crafts The scenery was lovely and Darwin was a very safe driver. If you are interested in seeing the towns and shopping, I suggest that you consider Darwin. He also will take you to other points of interest. When we return to Cuenca I hope that this apartment will be available. I loved our vacation there!!

“Convenient” This 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath apartment was very spacious, well equiped and clean. Very well located on Benigno Malo, the main north-south street through the center of the historic district. It is a short walk to the center of town. The owner, a lovely lady, was a wealth of information about Cuenca and the ex-pat community. She is a North american that speaks Spanish fluently.

“Very nice apartment. Very helpful owners” Our whole experience with Cuenca was wonderful. Deborah met us at the airport and helped us move in to the apartment. Oscar was there also and carried our suitcases up the stairs. This apartment is midsize and plenty big enough for a couple or even a four member family. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and appliances and all were clean. The location was one of the best possible. Our first night I went to a wonderful restaurant just one block away for a steak dinner take-out which was quite large and cost only $12.00 including potatoes and salad. Just beyond the restaurant was one of the principal avenues with many restaurants, stores and groceries within 5 minutes walk. Deborah is from Montreal. Oscar and his father (also Oscar) lived in Florida for years and not only speak perfect English but know what North americans need for their stay here. They were so helpful and friendly. It is an almost new apartment and not quite everything was in place in the kitchen but they ran to get what we needed and always with a big smile. We feel we made some good friends as part of this transaction and we look forward to seeing them again before too long. Only one small negative. We are both 73 years old and have a little difficulty with stairs. We managed but if you have real walking or climbing problems this may not be for you.

“Quiet but convenient.” We enjoyed our stay at this pleasantly quiet apartment in the Cuenca area. We were within walking distance of the center of the old town. However the neighborhood was nice and quiet. Just a block away was an excellent grill, which was real bonus.

About Cuenca

Having retained much of its colonial splendor, the highland city of Cuenca is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also one of the most advanced cities in Latin America that is geared towards tourism. To find your perfect place to stay while in Cuenca, browse the fantastic range of vacation rentals available on FlipKey.

About Cuenca, Ecuador

Found in the lower Andes Mountains of Ecuador, right between Colombia and Peru, Cuenca sits at an altitude of 8,200 ft and is Ecuador’s third-largest city.

Founded by Spanish explorers in 1557, Cuenca was erected on the remains of Tomebamba, an Inca city that was said to be as beautiful as Cuzco in Peru before being destroyed in a civil war earlier in the century. Throughout the city, there are remnants of Spanish colonial architecture - the giveaways (for any fans of historic buildings) are the Baroque ornaments which were popular in the 16th and 17th centuries.

Just like the capital Quito, no building in Cuenca is allowed to be higher that the tallest church steeple in town. Wandering around the city’s cobblestone streets, you will be in awe of the colonial mansions and the wrought-iron balconies adorned with flowering plants. It really is a stunning sight.

What to do in Cuenca

With no international airport, most visitors arrive via domestic air from either Quito or Guayaquil on a short 35-minute flight. If you have time on your hands, you can drive or take a bus stopping while marveling at the wondrous Andean scenery.

For a fabulous day trip, visit the ancient Incan civilization’s most northerly settlement at Ingapirca, near the country’s Pacific coast You can be back in Cuenca in time for lunch.

Go bird watching or fishing in El Cajas National Park where you have the chance to see over 150 species. Or, cast your fly into the water while fishing for mountain rainbow trout. The stunning backdrop makes it a memorable experience.

You can also explore the Amazonian rainforest with tours from Cuenca. It's a great way to discover a unique area that is home to over a 1,000 species of animals and is known the world over for its size and secrets.

Top travel tips for Cuenca, Ecuador

Don’t be fooled by the fact that Cuenca lies on the equator—it can still be quite chilly at night due to the altitude. If you want to skip the rainy season, it’s best to avoid April and May.

If you want to save money look, for restaurants that serve set price lunches called "Almuerzos".  Or, you can cook back at your rental after shopping for fresh and delicious produce at the local market.

In terms of cash, you don’t need anything bigger than a $20. You will have trouble trying to change bills larger than that.

While you're here, pick up a Panama hat—the best in the world are made in Ecuador.

Similar to many cities in the New World, Cuenca was constructed using a grid system that contained a central main square and built outwards - that way it's very hard to get lost!

Cuenca is a lovely example of a Spanish colonial city a place with plenty of museums shopping and outdoor attractions to keep you busy. Whether you are looking for a Baroque apartment in the center of the city or a villa in the suburbs, FlipKey has accommodation to suit all your vacation needs. Start searching for your perfect vacation rental, today!

Sunny I, Two-Bedroom Suite, Terra Sur Cuenca.
Modern, clean, spacious

We were a party of four and one toddler driving from Guayaquil to Cuenca. Although, the apartment wasn't ready by the time we arrived (3:30 pm), the broker, Deborah was very pleasant and accommodating. We booked the apartment for two nights. The apartment is located 10 min. walk from downtown Cuenca, in a safe area and with private parking for one vehicle. The unit itself was very clean and modern. The kitchen was fully equipped with basic appliances and more than enough to fix a nice meal for a family of 4. Everything in the kitchen and the apartment was in working condition and very functional. The apt. was tastefully designed. Everyone in my party was pleased. The family who owned the apt (and many others in the same building) were very charming and helpful. Aside from the delayed in settling in, the apartment exceeded our expectations in cleanliness, ammenities, convenient location and personalized customer service from the broker and owners. I would book this place again on my next visit to Cuenca. Thanks. Jorge from New York City, USa.see more

We would definitely stay here again. Oscar and Deborah were both very professional, friendly and helpful. Thanks guys!see more

Five Star Vrbo / Peaceful & Beautiful / Classy and Comfortable &

The entire property, from arrival to departure of the facility is just perfect. It is clean and feels safe and is in a great location... The place itself feels clean, cozy and elegant. Having traveled extensively overseas, this is certainly one of the nicest places I've stayed. The kitchen and bathroom...clean and nice!!! My favorite part is, of course, the terrace view. I easily spent several morning hours just sitting out on the terrace, drinking my delicious Ecuadorian coffee and taking in the view! My afternoons were filled with walks to the heart of Cuenca...not too long or too short, but just right. The owners are beyond gracious and are very successful, responsible and reliable business people...you can take them at their word...honest and thoughtful and truly amazing people!

Inviting, Spacious Ground Floor Flat with Lush Garden
Comfortable and Relaxing

There were 4 adults plus dogs that stayed in Rex and Cheryl's spacious and well appointed condo. First, it was wonderful to find a place that would accommodate our dogs and afford us the ability to easily let them in and out onto a yard. And, the yard was quite enjoyable with the beautiful garden and resident hummingbird. Delightful. The home itself is very nicely designed and decorated with everything we needed to make our stay a pleasant experience. The hosts, Rex and Cheryl, were full of information and were available to help us if we needed help with getting a taxi or making suggestions on places to eat. We will not hesitate to stay again next time we venture to Cuenca. B.E.see more

If you love to cook and entertain with friends, stay here!

^ All together there were 6 of us . As friends we love to cook and entertain. It was especially nice to have the living room and kitchen open so we could all visit while some of the women prepared the meal and the others watched tv and visited. One night we entertained 11 guests and there was plenty of room to spread out and be comfortable. I've been to a lot of flipkeys but have never seen such a nice large assortment of pots, pans, bowls and dishes for cooking. The beds were especially comfortable and the area was quiet. and there were lots of large windows with beautiful views and plenty of light. We are already looking forward to staying here next year.see more
