“Everything was outstanding”
Reviewed 4 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Since we arrived in Cuenca, everything was beautiful, the city is very colonial and have lots of restaurants and things to do.
The best of all was Darwin apartment, location was perfect, about 15 minutes from the center, with very cheap taxis and busses to go there.
The apartment is new with all the facilities, beautiful furniture.
Downstairs is a store that you can find anything you need. There is a stylist salon that you can do your hair, manicure, pedicure with Sandra at very affordable prices next to the store.
The building have elevator wish is a plus, because the apartment is in the 4th floor.
Darwin is very good at taking care of everything you need to know about Cuenca.
Definetely I will choose this apartment again.

Eleanor and her husband is a lovely couple. They took the most of your stay, visiting places, churches, museums, restaurants and even making friends in the same building. They were extremely careful with all the equipment of the apartment. Before leaving town we had a short chat where they displayed their joy in telling your stay in the City. With regard to the apartment I have nothing negative to report. Guests highly recommended. Always be welcome.

“Great Owner, Great Apartment!!”

I've rented from Darwin before. He is always courteous and helpful!! I was late arriving due to having to take care of a large group that I was in charge of. Darwin responded to my call almost instantly. We also had to leave early in the morning and notified him at the last moment, he was just as nice as if I'd informed him the day I arrived.

The apt. is great with good hot water, washer and dryer, equipped kitchen, comfortable sofa, nice beds, and a great dining table. There is a nice view and the building is modern and easily accessible. I'd recommend this to anyone!! Reserve the apt. and enjoy Cuenca!!

“Safe and comfortable home away from home”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The other reviews pretty much sum it up but I would like to emphasize that the apartment does have everything you need and is very safe and comfortable. It looks just as pictured. Darwin is an excellent host who does everything he can to accommodate you and it is very important to him that you have a good stay in Cuenca. He was very helpful to us and we appreciate very much that he went the extra mile to help us resolve any issues we had such as with our lost luggage at the airport. He and his wife are very good and kind people.

had we wanted to spend more time with Rebecca and her lovely mother. They were excellent guests. share good times and enjoyed a dinner with typical food of the region. With the apartment were very careful, I have nothing to claim. They were in a time of cold and let me know a time and give them an electric heater that facilitated your stay. Invited 100% recommended. I hope to have them back soon for Ecuador, here are many wonders to explore.

“Like coming to my home away from home.”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We chose this property due to the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. It absolutely lived up to it's advertising photos. The owners picked us up at the airport, drove us to the apartment and oriented us. The apartment was extremely nicely appointed, with great touches like fresh fruit on the dining table for us, a fully stocked wine rack and bar. Even fresh spices in the kitchen for cooking! The building is modern and safe. There is a small market actually located in building, with everything from beer to laundry detergent to fresh bread, and it is open late every night. While the clerks there only speak Spanish they were very patient with my rudimentary efforts and we communicated easily. The one thing I would change about this apartment is the location. Most of the sightseeing is done in Old Town which is about a 10 minute cab ride away. The good news is that it is ridiculously easy to catch a taxi outside the building and it only costs $2.50 - $3.00 to get just about anywhere you'd want to go. Also, by being a bit away from downtown it was certainly quieter and it gave us an opportunity to more fully immerse ourselves in the culture (and really isn't that the point of visiting another country?)

To top off our stay, on the day we checked out we had several hours to kill before our flight, so Darwin, our host, graciously volunteered to spend several hours with us driving us to the most beautiful National Park in the mountains above the city. We never would have even known about this place otherwise. Darwin just wanted to show us another side of Cuenca. I can hardly wait for my next opportunity to visit, and when I do I know exactly where I'll be staying.

“Great, New Apartment for Cuenca Adventure”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed about a week with another couple and their 19-month old daughter. The location is on the edge of Cuenca but taxis are available readily and there are two marcedos and a seafood restaurant within half a block. Darwin is an excellent host and provides help constantly in person or by email contact. He helped upon arrival very well, and kept on top of our stay throughout. Kitchen amenities, washer/dryer, furniture, and beds-rooms are first rate. Luxury overall.

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.
