BEACHFRONT CONDO IN BEAUTIFUL SALINAS ECUADOR

Salinas Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo is on 11th Floor across from Yacht Club

Two Degrees South has the entire 11th floor directly across from the yacht club. The condo has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large living room, large kitchen & very large deck. An optional 3rd bedroom with full bathroom and laundry room is also available. May be combined with adjacent apartment to accommodate total of 10 people. See HomeAway Listing NUMBER 3492213

In our opinion this is the finest location on the Malecon (beachfront road). We are at the center of all beachfront activities. Whether you want to rent a watercraft, go fishing, whale watching, or just enjoy the beach, we have it all. We are situated on a large shallow bay, but twelve miles from shore the water is 20,000 feet deep. Ernest Hemingway once said Salinas has the best fishing in the world. Within a few minutes walk you can select from many good restaurants. Across the road the water is warm and the waves are gentle, so your children can play in the water while you watch from your rented beach chair and umbrella. You can purchase ice cream, sandwiches, coconuts, or a bottle of beer from beach vendors that cater to your every need.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Events Allowed
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair accessible
  • pets not allowed

About Paul Franklin

Born in small town Ontario Canada. I moved West to Alberta when I was 25 and opened a furniture store. Ten years ago I sold the business and re-opened as a franchisee for The Brick, Canada's Largest volume Furniture retailer. Last year while traveling to Salinas Ecuador I saw some properties and a year later I returned and purchased these two units on the 11th floor of Vista Del Mar. You can see both listings here, 1509542 and 1509543.

Paul Franklin purchased this condo in 2012

Why Paul Franklin chose Salinas

The infrastructure in Ecuador is being upgraded especially the major roads. The beaches in Salinas are clean and the climate is warm but not so much in the Caribbean. Temperature vary from 75-85 and usually come with a nice ocean breeze.

What makes this condo unique

The country is very diverse with sandy beaches and some great surfing in Montanita which is north of Salinas. The uniqueness of the Andes with there spectacular views and the rain forests. 18,000 foot high mountains with snow or cloud forests make this small country possibly the most diverse in the world.

Wonderful stay in Salinas

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a week in Paul's apartment, and we were thrilled with everything. The apartment is spacious and clean, and the view is spectacular from the balcony. I found both Paul and Jaime, the property manager, to be wonderful to deal with -- quick to respond with good information. Jaime was also extremely responsive to our needs once we arrived. It's great to have that kind of service available.

The only thing that I would note that is not for everybody is that it is right in the middle of the Malecon and that it can be noisy at night. This was not something that bothered me or my family at all, but if you feel that you need absolute silence, another place may be a better fit. I found that I was able to relax very well, in the hammock on the balcony, even with the noise going on around me. And, this happened really only on the weekend. It was barely noticeable during the week.

I would recommend this apartment many times over, and I look forward to returning.

RELAXATION AT ITS BEST

  • 5 of 5
We spent 2 months in this Condo and enjoyed every moment of it, the unit was SPECTACULAR, very clean and easy to keep that way. It is in the heart of the beach area of Salinas, just a short walk or bus ride to the stores, mall or restaurants. Spent many a morning just looking at the activity on the beach. The views from the balcony or any window in the unit were spectacular. Paul and Jaime were wonderful, very helpful and informative and easy to get along with. Can't wait to go back.

Want a no stress vacation!!! This is the place.

  • 5 of 5
I can not express enough what a wonderful time we had in Salinas Ecuador. Staying at the condo was just like being home. Clean, everything you need, great location,eating places, and in the heart of all the action of Salinas. The location is safe, the condo security and staff is wonderful also. Paul the owner was so accommodating and his propriety manager Jamie was such a plus. Paul made sure you were happy , your questions answered and provided all kinds of reliable resources, for touring, taxi service, reliable pick up and returning to airport. maid service was excellent all lined up with quality people through Jamie. Jamie speakes perfect English and we speak very little Spanish another real plus for people like us. We would rent again, recommend staying at this location i can not imagine staying any place better. When you send your money to a stranger you want honesty and intergrity you will have it with both Paul and Jamie. We have traveled many places but never a place made us feel so welcome , comfortable and both checked on us periodically to make sure everything was satisfactory. The only problem we had it wasn't long enough I could have stayed forever.Paul and Jamie great Ambassadors for Ecuador. Because our stay was such a great experience and our trip was a fact finding mission to see if we wanted to move to Ecuador and retire the stay sealed the deal. We are moving to Salinas in June.

Spacious, nice, fantastic view and great location

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent almost seven weeks in this very nice and spacious condo and enjoyed it very much. Actually, in addition to the condo, we also rented Paul's personal suite which made the place huge and very comfortable. We were joined by two adult sons for part of the time and loved it. Also, for a week, we rented his apartment across the hall---for our other two adult children and two grandchildren--giving us the entire 11th floor. A couple visited us for a week after the family left and they too enjoyed the condo. The beds were very comfortable, a fact we always check when we have a long visit. The balcony was a joy. Very large and worthy of much of our time. The condo could not be better located if one likes to be in the middle of it all and enjoy fantastic views! It was clean and we used the maid who was only $20 a day and very nice. Jaime is the property manager and is simply wonderful! He saw to our every need and assisted with the language as he speaks super English. He cooked for us, drove us to Montanita, and arranged transportation to/from the airport for everyone. Very efficient and pleasant, he recommended a great lady to come to the condo to cut our hair, do manicures and pedicures, massages--all very inexpensive. He did everything, including keeping us in bottled water (the water in Ecuador is the only negative). New Years Eve in Salinas is an experience no one should miss! Unlike anywhere else! The guards worked around the clock, were very nice and helpful and ensured our safety which was never in doubt. Good restaurants, most inexpensive. The area and condo are just as described. However, it should also be noted that Paul, the owner, was fantastic to work with and very responsive. He and Jaime make a good team! A wonderful and highly recommended trip to Salinas....

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5
We found this condo with the third bedroom/laundry room to be the perfect place for our group of 6 adults. It was clean and spacious. The kitchen had everything we needed. We loved the view from the very large balcony and spent most of our time out there playing cards in the warm breeze and watching all the activities on the beach below. Jaime, the manager, was so very friendly and helpful. If we ever go to Salinas again we will definitely stay here.
