Casa Cuenca
We stayed for six nights in the room with 3 beds. We would have preferred one of the bedrooms with a double bed as they have windows to the outside. Our beds had very comfortable mattresses, toilet and sink ensuite - but the shower was through the kitchen.
We had a very nice time with the other guests and Malcolm the host, so one evening we had a fabulous potluck, it was so nice to be able to use a fridge and a kitchen.
We only met Merial briefly but she seems super nice. Breakfast was good, awesome homemade juice each morning, we loved the two little dogs, and the house is in an area close to the river to go for walks or runs. We also really appreciated being able to wash a load of laundry. We left to go to the coast and Malcolm kindly let us leave one suitcase at his place for a week.
Every place also has its disadvantages, and what I’d change would be that Malcolm (who is hard of hearing) when watching loud TV would start using head phones, though the...

Management response:

House is modern with all modern appliances and features, blazing hot water, wood floors and lots of windows to let in the sunshine from the garden area. It seems most rooms face the garden, except one, but that one is right off the sunroom with a hot tub.

The best part of our stay was our hosts. Malcom from the US and his lovely wife, Mariela from Ecuador made us feel like we were long lost relatives come back home. Mariela has a heart of gold and her sparkly eyes welcomed us each time we came and went. Malcom and she prepared a nice breaky each day, with REAL coffee, oatmeal with apples and whole wheat croissant and real butter. The best breaky in EC. He knows a LOT about Cuenca and was helpful getting us on the right track when we arrived. A wealth of...
