Overview

Salinas Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartments is on 11th Floor across from Yacht Club

Two Degrees South has the entire 11th floor directly across from the yacht club. The Apartment has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room and kitchen. Laundry is available on site. May be combined with adjacent Condo to accommodate total of 10 people. See Listing NUMBER 3489672.

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

About Paul Franklin

I live in Cold Lake, Alberta Canada. I have been in the Furniture business most of my life. It is time to take life a little easier so on a trip to Ecuador I fell in love with the place on a visit there in 2011. I am sure you will love it too. The people are friendly and you will meet lots of Ex-pats while wandering the streets or sitting in an Ocean front restaurant.

Paul Franklin purchased this apartment 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 as in the Caribbean. Temperature vary from 75-85 and usually come with a nice ocean breeze.

What makes this apartment unique

The country is very diverse with sandy beaches and some great surfing in Montanita which is a small town north of Salinas. The uniqueness of the Andes with there spectacular views and the rain forests. The highest mountain is approximately 20,000 foot high with snow at the top. Yes snow at the equator. You can also visit cloud forests in the interior. This small country is possibly the most diverse in the world.

We rented the unit for one month. I will say that Jaime was very helpful. However, the apartment needed a complete cleaning, the bathroom faucets, the shower walls and shower curtain had mold on them. In the kitchen for eating there were only 6 plates and three bowls and nothing else. The cooking pot were several, however, half of them should have been thrown away a long time ago. No one mention that in order to take a hot shower one had to turn on the timer in the closet to warn up the water. It was the smallest water heater I have ever seen, if one was luck you would have about 10 to 12 minutes of hot water for a quick shower. Over all it was not worth the money we paid. I would not recommend this apartment to anyone.

We get what we pay for...

I stayed here with two little grand-boys in January this year, can't remember exact dates. Basic, but comfortable furnishings. Several light bulbs of the pendant lights in the kitchen were burned out. Fridge and stove basic...and rusting...fridge leaking fluid. No balcony. A/C in living room and master bedroom NOT working efficiently or effectively. A/C in second bedroom excellent, so we all slept in there...cramped. This unit definitely needs upgrading. Owner lives in Canada. Very noisy, not at all the owner's responsibility, as this unit is central to the malecon; will look for a quieter place next time I visit the coast. Better values can be found in Salinas.

Owner's Response: These were special bulbs and the government did away with filament bulbs so there were no replacements available. However since then my manager did find a substitution and they are all working now. Yes the Stove and Fridge are basic but the fluid was just condensation that happens more at that time of year. It only has to be emptied more often. My manager is aware of it and will check on it more often. The air conditioners have since been repaired. I have owned these 2 units for 2 years now and have done many upgrades since buying it. New furniture for the living room and patio on the larger unit. Recovered the sofa set in the apartment, new blinds on all the windows and 15 new limited edition prints on the walls. Also a new BarBQ.
Yes it is noisy on the weekends as it is on the Malecon but many of my guests love this as it is part of the ambiance of staying in this area.
As for better value I wonder what this person is looking for. She got 2 bedrooms at $30 per bedroom and throw in a kitchen and living room. Wifi and laundry. She could stay at a nearby hotel for the same price but have to share a bathroom and no wifi or laundry.

Thanks Paul for renting me your apartment My family and I had an incredible time in Salinas.
the location of the apartment is excellent it is a few blocks away from the Salinas yatch Club and there are many restaurants around to eat. My mom was so happy that the supermarket was not even one block away from the apartment. The front desk security from the building were polite and helpful and they were always aware from the people that walk in and out of the building.
The apartment was clean ,spacious and comfortable.(bathrooms clean and the bed's mattress were very comfy i felt i was in my own bed)
The apartmenet have windows all over so i had a nice view one from the beach and another one from the sunset. The view that we had from the sunset was spectacular.
Jaime was nice and helpful everytime we need something he make sure we got it right away.

The location is great from there we hired a person to drive us to different beaches such as Ballenita, Ayangue, Montanita and Olon.

I had an incredible time and i would rent this apartment again.

Thanks Paul!!!
