Our property is conveniently located close to the beach and to downtown area.
Your home is a 2nd floor above the ground floor fully furnished apartment with two rooms and two baths that can comfortably accommodate up to 5 persons.
The house was entirely designed to have a comfortable, relaxed, stress free and very enjoyable atmosphere. Thanks to its construction materials (hardwood and bamboo,) the apartment remains cool even in very sunny day (you will find cement only in the bathroom).
The housekeeper will take care of your clothes cleaning and drying needs every Saturday. Light cleaning will be provided once a week by the house personnel.
Come visit or stay for long in UNESCOs (1982) declared 2nd best climate in the world: Playas (General Villamil).
Playas is just an hour and 10 minute drive from the main city of Guayaquil and from Salinas, a fishing and marina port.
When you come to Playas, you will have fun enjoying the sea breeze, relaxing in an uncrowded, light, fine-sand beach, ordering seafood and lunch meals that are conveniently low in price, going for a boat ride to the near Puna island, where you will, on the way there, find and see many marine and bird life, or going for a walk at the central park (during the day or at night).
At night and on weekends, during high season, the downtown and beach area becomes very active. High season is between January and March.
If you are more of a surf addict, there are many nearby places where you can ride the waves: one of them is el Pelado.
Other amenities of the house include a nice 32 inch led tv, cable tv, blu-ray and blray movies, two internet providers (cat 5 and wireless), kitchen, two balconies, and you are welcome to use the patio and ground floor to entertain guests.
You can enjoy barbecues on the patio and can get together with friends at night as well on the ground floor. There is a large yard in-front of the house suitable for gatherings with a pine and orange tree nearby. The nights are great, with clear nights most of the time, and the climate magnificent (average 77 farenheit) all year round. During the day you can enjoy plenty of sun at the house patio, or if it is too much sun, you can find shade from the nearby trees, bamboo, and cade shades strategically located around the patio and yard.
In case you need smaller accommodations, we can probably set them up for you. Just let us know what you need, and we will do our best to find a suitable and comfortable place for you and your party to stay.
Hi, I am Frank and I live with my partner, Cinthya, and young daughter in Playas in one of the three floors of the property. It has been a long family tradition to spend the weekend and beach season in Playas, and we constantly followed it. This is how I, from my childhood years, came to appreciate and get to know Playas better, and later decided to move here permanently. At the same time, I have a concern for nature and the environment, which is the reason why I had the apartment constructed with as minimum cement as possible -only bathrooms have it. By gaining access and using local natural resources (hard bamboo from Quevedo and hardwoods from Esmeraldas), I was able to have this three story house constructed.
Playas is one of the most peaceful and most untouched beach areas that can be found along the Ecuadorian coastal front. You can really escape here from the stress. Its people are very friendly and love the simple things: family is at the top, life enjoyment through outside gathering of family and friends is encouraged and practiced, and its people rarely engage in any form of violence or confrontations.
What makes this property unique is the construction materials: hardwood and bamboo. Due to this, the apartment stays cool and fresh year long, and the wood texture and color will certainly put you in a relax mood and help you unwind.
In 1982, UNESCO declared Playas to have the 2nd best climate of the world. The beach has a very fine sand and the water is really warm. It is so warm that even in the 'cool' season (August through November) you can still get in and find comfortable water temperatures. These two things make Playas unique.
The fauna on el Canal del Morro, which separates the Puna Island from the Continental land, is espectacular. You will be able to see dolphins, patas azules birds, fragatas and many more birds that have made the small islands - islotes - their home, as you venture in a boat trip to the Puna Island (15 to 45 minutes- it is up to you how far you want to go), where you can take plenty of pictures and then disembark in any of the three comunas (communal lands) to enjoy more beach privacy and very calm and warm waters.
If you enjoy peer fishing or surfing, el Faro and el Pelado, respectively, will be your favorite places to visit. Both are within a 10 minutes drive.
You can visit a historic wood church: la Iglesia del Morro (over 500 years old); do roller skating at the central park, bike and climb in el Cerro del Muerto. We can help you contract a small boat or lancha if you prefer going deep sea fishing, diving, or getting snorkeling certified; we can arrange for you to do just that.
