“Security, Location and Comfort!”
We stayed at Darwins apartment during the month of January, 2015, and enjoyed a trouble free experience. Everything was as promised and then more. The apartment was very clean and contained everything we needed. It was an easy 15 minute walk to te largest market in Cuenca. Just a few blocks to Los Americas Highway and across the street, you can catch a Red number 100 bus that takes you into Old Town. This will cost you 25 cents per person and it also passes the Central Market if you do not feel like walking. When we left the Amanda apartment, we transferred to another apartment that is owned by Darwin and again, we are very pleased whith the results.
Response from the owner Catherine and Ken, were space-one months in each apartment. They really are excellent guests, very careful and respectful, they were kind enough to leave clean both apartments. We also had a chance to take a tour of the towns of Gualaceo, Chordeleg and Sigsig where apredimos something from each other. They asked to have a package ready to watch superbowl NFL. But it was not necessary to improve the package, they enjoyed the games. Highly Recommended guests and want them to know that will always be welcome, If you need my help in the city of Cuenca have a friend, regardless of the place of stay.
The owner of the apt.Darwin Naula is a super Helpfull person, I will come back to Cuenca UN day and Defenitable will stay at the same Plave
Response from the owner Luis and his family are lovely, friendly people. very careful in the apartment. We had the opportunity to share in 2 days traveling to various places in the Andean region and the Tungurahua volcano. Luis and his family are world travelers and know a lot about culture, traditions. Just enjoy much of our conversations. I hope to return and know more about the culture, food, places of Ecuador. At the time they were in the apartment we had the opportunity to make friends.
We loved the apartment! It was well equipped, very confortable, had everything we needed, two spacious bedrooms, nice living and dinning room, kitchen with washer and dryer, we were very happy, also the owner was very helpful and friendly which made our stay very pleasant. The disadvantage was the apartment is located aprox 15 minutes from the city center, if you have a car this is not a problem, but if you plan to go to el Cajas is 5 minutes to the main road. We loved Cuenca, our kids really enjoyed exploring the city, we loved Las Tres Chorreras, a great hotel in the way to el Cajas.
Response from the owner It's been some time since we were in Cuenca, but I have fond memories of a beautiful family that was a weekend. Guests were excellent, very careful, I hope to have them back.
“Three Thumbs Up”
Our family of three stayed at Darwin's apartment for exactly one month (wish we stayed longer). The place is immaculate, with brand new furniture, facilities and everything that you need to feel comfortable, like at home. The building is located near a bus stop (with a bus #10 taking you right to the centre of Cuenca), two convenience stores, a bakery, cafes/restaurants, and a short walking distance to a big market, Mercado El arenal, where you can pick up fresh produce. It may seem that the building is located a bit far from the centre, but we preferred staying a bit away from the hustle and bustle. It's only a 10 minute bus ride or a 5 minute taxi ride right to the heart of Cuenca. Darwin is a very friendly and helpful person, always available whenever we had a question or needed advice. We would definitely recommend this apartment to our friends and anyone looking for a great place to stay in Cuenca. Thank you, Darwin!
Response from the owner Vladimir and his family are very loving, respectful and careful with the apartment people. I have the best memories of this Russian family. The apartment was always clean even if they gave me. It took you a good memory of the city and hope to return soon. Guests as they hope to have in the future. Thanks Vladimir, Nadia and Andrew!
Darwin was a great host. We arrived late at the airport and Darwin was there to greet us. The apartment was beautiful! Fresh flowers were on the table as was a fruit bowl. This was a wonderful surprise. We used the public buses to visit El Centro daily (25 minutes/ $0.25). The supermarket is within a reasonable walking distance (a mile or so) and there is a great bakery located about 4 blocks from the apartment. A small tienda is located in the 1st floor of the apartment building itself. (As we are a family traveling with 4 children, access to groceries is pretty important). The only real negative is that the apartment is located on a busy street and this created some problems sleeping in the master bedroom at times. The Wi-fi was more reliable here than any place else we have stayed during our 3 months in Ecuador! Darwin was quite accommodating with taking us back to the airport early in the am; and this was much appreciated.
Response from the owner Shelley and his family are very nice people, they appreciate privacy. They were very careful with the apartment, I have nothing negative to report.
“Great Stay - Beautiful apartment”
Darwin is a great host and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. The apartment is brand new and beautifully decorated. It is stocked with every item you could need. One of the best features of the apartment is it is a 15 minute walk from Feria Libre which is the largest and most authentic market in Cuenca. Coral Central Supercenter is also walking distance and has all the groceries and other items you can imagine. A five minute walk to Tia Lucca products gives you the best beef empanadas you have ever tasted. A taxi to downtown is $3 and 10 minutes. We regularly to bus 10 to downtown in 20 minutes and $0.25.
Response from the owner Craig and Lisa are excellent people, very respectful and careful, I had a nice experience to have them as guests. Regarding the apartment absolutely everything was in order, and clean up. I only have words of thanks and I wish you good luck on your next trip. I hope to have them visit Cuenca soon.
