About Sharon Corrick
Hi I’m Sharon, I am excited to be a host and help my guests feel comfortable and relaxed when they’re in my apartment. I like them to think of my apartment as their home away from home. I grew up in New Zealand. I am retired now and my husband John and I have been living in Cuenca, Ecuador for the past 6 1/2 years. We didn’t plan it that way, it just happened and we love it. Although I am new to vacation rentals, I spent many years in the tourism industry and know what travelers expect. So I do my very best to live up to my own expectation standards by providing the best to my guests so they are never disappointed. I also love to travel and enjoy new adventures and to meet new friends from all over the world, and from all walks of life, so vacation rentals fits my lifestyle perfectly as host and guest.
Why Sharon Corrick chose Cuenca
I love the fantastic views and just sitting on the terrace looking out to the Andes Mountains. It is a relatively new building that is quiet and peaceful, and has an on-site Gym. It is very safe and secure with controlled entry access and the guards are very friendly and helpful.
What makes this Condo unique
When I saw the views, I fell in love with this apartment immediately. The building is new and modern and has everything I need and close to many amenities within walking distance.

Convenient location, super clean, spacious balcony
The main attraction for us in selecting this condo was the spacious balcony which looks west toward the mountain tops and the dramatic cloud show. It is well equipped, very clean, spacious enough for two people. The kitchen includes an excellent, new LG washer and dryer! The internet was reliable and fast enough for Netflix. The bedrooms and kitchen are well lit with natural light; the dining area and living room are a bit dark. Our arrival process went very smoothly with Karen and Mark, and with Norman, the security man. Norman was a very nice daily welcome guy at the main door! The location suited us well- near the walking paths along the river, an interesting stroll downtown, near Supermaxi, Feria Libre, bus routes and Tranvía when it opens soon. Traffic sound from the nearby busy traffic circle was quite noticeable.
Very thorough information and instructions are available in print in the apartment and in an e-book. Despite instructions we ended up watching Netflix using the HDMI cable we carry for travel; and the cable/satellite service worked only half of our time here.
Outside of el centro and perfectly located within walking distance of the supermarket, downtown, feria libre and the river. We enjoyed our daily walks, getting to know the people here and recommend this condo if you're headed to cuenca. I really liked how clean it was and that there were supplies on hand to keep the place tidy. Great washer and dryer. There are some stairs inside the condo which was totally fine for us. A nice sized patio to sit out and enjoy the sun, too. Great view of the Cajas.
Beautiful property and great hosts!
The apartment was beautifully furnished and very clean. Sharon and John went out of their way to make our stay memorable. They created an e -book filled with suggestions for restaurants, tourist attractions, tips on how to get around and everything we could possibly need. We enjoyed their company and advice if we do decide to retire in Cuenca. This was an excellent rental by owner experience.
It was lovely to meet Linda, Gerry and Andy and host them for their stay in Cuenca. They kept good communications at all times and were a pleasure to host. They came as strangers and left as friends. We highly recommend Linda and her family to other hosts and we would be happy to have them return and stay at our place again.
We enjoyed our stay at the lovely penthouse apartment. Very well furnished! Within walking distance to just about everything! Mark and Karen were very accommodating. Had we not bought a condo of our own, we would have been back. Thank you for the wonderful time.
