About Gisella Coello Behr

I grew up in Guayaquil and most of my childhood I vacationed by the coast. My family and I love to have company and this made us want to exceed always as good hosts. I studied hotel management in Switzerland and I love to show foreigners the beauty of my country. Welcome to Ecuador!

Gisella Coello Behr purchased this villa in 2004

Why Gisella Coello Behr chose Salinas

My family purchased this house because it's unique location. The whole area enjoys an extensive 12-mile beach with very little access to the public. We are very lucky to be able to have unobstructed views and direct access to the beach.

The life this region of Ecuador offers is very rural and people is well known for its laid back and compliance attitude.

What makes this villa unique

Beautiful view, extensive gardens, exterior swimming pool & hot tub, direct access to the beach, low traffic beach, close rainforest of 'Cinco Cerros'

Perfect location, fantastic beach, beautiful property

  • 5 of 5
2 adult couples...needing a rest after a back country tour of Ecuador, and this house was exactly what we needed.
4 full bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms with the most amazing outdoor patio. Other reviewers have mentioned the patio as a highlight and they are absolutely right as it is stunning and perfectly placed to keep the sun and wind out, but allow postcard views of the pool and beach.The beach is smooth, shallow, warm, and virtually rock free for miles. Swim, boogie board or just relax with a spectacular view.
The caretakers are wonderful, caring and hard working...they live behind the house but always allowing full privacy. They are ready to take care of your needs anytime, with a smile. Gina is an outstanding cook so be sure to work with her to plan delicious and healthy meals. We recommend her Camarones Panados or her cilantro chicken. Her husband Daniel maintains the grounds with excellence, and booked taxis and truly local tours for us. He even waited up until midnight to ensure our companions left on time, safely. Amazing people! The house cant be more perfectly situated. Hire a local taxi for the day (80$) and go tour Montecristi (true Panama Hats and the Civic Centre)...then Manta...stop at Santa Marianita for seafood by the beach...Puerto Lopez (absolute must - the day tour to Isla de la Plata...)
Book surfing lessons in Montanita...then party gently or hard in the bars. Lots of choices.
Note - get all you preferred and basic groceries and toileteries before you arrive...but let Daniel get you langoustine, shrimp...and fresh fish as well as fruits and vegetables daily.
Maritza, Pedro, Gisella...thank you....we will be back, hopefully soon!

great vacation

  • 5 of 5
Great vacation wish we could have spent more time there.The house is very nice very spacious and clean.We rented a car that in itself was a adventure.Its about 3 hrs from Guayaqul airport but well worth the ride.The house is close to Montanita and Olon.Montanita is a fun little town.We also took a ride to puerto lopez to go snorkeling at Salango Island.Also took a ride to Salinas which is about 1 1/2 from the house,

beautiful beach there. Back to the house we had most of our meals on the front porch which had a very nice table to eat the great meals cooked by Gina the caretakers that live in back of the property.Her husband Daniel keep the grounds and pool very well maintained.They both were very helpful.We had arrived late and I realized I forgot to pack my toothbrush and Daniel ran out to get me one.There was a bit of a language barrier but my daughter knows some spanish and we also used the lap top to translate.Can't say enough about Gina and Daniel. There is also 3 freindly litlle dogs on the property that we all loved.Thank you Gisella

What a place to spend a week.

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this house in the middle of November with a group of 6 friends. I really can't say enough great things about my experience. For starters, the house and property are both more beautiful than the pictures portray. You walk out the front door, accross the patio, past the pool, then past the hot tub and onto the beach. Moreover, I was rarely inside because I spent nearly all of my time either surfing or on the front porch. The outdoor dinning room is incredible and a great place to hang out. In fact, this is where we ate all of our meals. Speaking of meals, Gina, one of the housekeepers, is an incredible cook. Nearly every day, she prepared and served two delicious meals. Indeed, she and her husband, Daniel, did an outstanding job of cleaning and maintaining the property while also assuring that our group had a pleasurable stay. Both Daniel and Gina are extremelly pleasant, and I enjoyed getting to know them and their family.

As far as surfing is concerned, we did have some good days. On a typical day, we got at least one good session. The swell is the usual Pacific ground swell, and the wave here is laid-back. Thus, it's good for begginers. The break definitely suffered due to on-shore winds for most of the trip. We never got to see what it would do with a favorable wind. Mornings and evenings were calm, so that is when we usually got the best surf. This break seemed best at mid-tide especially when receeding.

Whenever the surf was mush, we had easy access to zip-lining, jungle tours, horseback riding, and snorkeling at the nearby towns and villages: Montanita is 12 minutes by car; Olon is eight; San Jose is three; Puerto Lopez, where you can charter a boat to Isla de la Plata (the poor man's Galapagos), is a thirty-five minute drive.

I definitely recommend this property to anyone thinking of visiting Ecuador.

Delightful, beautiful place and people, we spent two great months!

  • 5 of 5
We spent July and August in this delightful house on the beach, we just got back and cant stop talking about it. This place has many strengths: the description of the property was certainly accurate, we spent most of our time on the beautiful patio for breakfasts and lunch keeping an eye out for adventurous whales (we saw them breaching and frolicking out there two times right from our deck). The house is beautiful and very well maintained and the owners are very responsive, anything we needed done or solved they were on it immediately. They also went out of their way to help us get settled. The family that is in charge of taking care of the house is excellent also, they cooked tasty Ecuadorian dished for us (we came home with many recipes though not sure if we can reproduce them here), kept the house in great shape and they made us feel right at home. We are very happy we got to meet them all and to know this beautiful part of Ecuador.
