About James Flannery
We 'retired' in August of 2012 and moved to Salinas Ecuador in October 2012 from Oakland California. We have lived here for over 4 years. I am a retired architect and Cecilia a retired admin hospital assistant. We have several vacation rentals that we manage in Salinas, Ecuador and the Riviera Maya in Mexico which keeps us as busy as we would like. Cecilia volunteers to the Salinas Red Cross and volunteers to teach English to local Ecuadorian vendors, police etc. in Salinas.
James Flannery purchased this Condo in 2011
Why James Flannery chose Salinas
We purchased the complete floor of a penthouse condo which we completely gutted and remodeled in 2013. The rental suite is on one end of the penthouse floor. The weather and swimming is great in Salinas and friends are easy to make. Shorts, t-shirts and flipflops are our attire most of the year. We think you will enjoy your stay here.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Perfect beach vacation!
James and Cecelia are awesome hosts. They are very friendly, answered all of my questions and provided great recommendations. The penthouse condo is the perfect size for 1-2 people. Everything you need for a relaxing beach vacation. The condo is located in the heart of the Malecon with nice views of the beach/Salinas Bay as well as nice breezes from the balcony. Sunset views from the balcony was a bonus.
great location . beautiful modern condo unit .fabulous hosts
the condo looks even better than in pictures. we had a great stay . the hosts (James and Cecilia) are so accomodating and helpful. if we ever need to rent a place again in salinas we will definitely be back. my only complaint is that the time went by too fast 😉� lol. thanks for your hospitality . see you again soon

Lovely apartment just steps to the beach
Every night at 6 we would sit on our balcony, wine in hand and watch the sunset into the ocean, a favourite part of our day. Our apartment met all our needs, comfortable bed, good closet space, a kitchenette that was well equipped, lounge area and great shower in the bathroom.
The area is perfect for Salinas Beach and Pepepe Beach just a short walk away. There are many restaurants in the area and a decent sized grocery store nearby.
Our hosts were an important part of helping us obtain transport from the airport, shopping orientation, even finding us an English speaking doctor and accompanying us there for the appointment.
If you are looking for a great place for a long or short term stay this is one we can highly recommend.
It was great having you stay here. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. It was like we have known you a long time even though we only recently met. I hope Anne is recovering in time for your excursion to the Galapagos Islands! Hope to see you again next year. Safe travels.
A comfy little apartment 90 seconds from the beach. Handy to a wide variety of restaurants and a more than adequate supermarket. Easy walk to laundry where the price to have your wash done and folded is less than if you took it to a self-serve in the States. A very active place for night life activities so, if you are a light sleeper, you may want to bring ear plugs or use the ones that James Flannery provides especially on Friday and Saturday nights. James, Celia, and Ralph were all great hosts and took care of any needs that may have arisen. The airport transport from Guayquil that James suggests is a superb option. The facilities in the apartment--shower, bed, closet space, kitchen, kitchen supplies--were more than ample to make one truly comfortable.
Dear Deb and Tony,
Thank you for staying in our suite. We are located in the middle of Salinas Malecon and the Guayaquilians like to come for the weekend so it can be more lively on those 2 nights. I know you like to keep the windows open for the great fresh air we have on the peninsula so our apartment may not have been the best for you in this regard. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Salinas during the month you were here.
Clean, well equipped, across street from beach
All the extra little touches and amenities make this a great place to stay! All of these were provided: well-equipped kitchen, cleaning products, bath gel, q-tips, ear plugs for late night holiday celebrations, beach towels, super balcony.
Great Location with great owners
We loved our stay in Salinas.....the condo was well appointed/clean/ comfortable and located right where you want to be. Corresponded with James many times and always got quick replies to my questions. Don't hesitate to rent here....you will love Salinas and the condo. We will return to Salinas sometime soon.....
Thank you for staying in our suite in Salinas. I hope you enjoyed your stay here even with the unusually strong and extensive rain we are having this year. You can now say you survived Carnival :) Now you need to experience New Years Eve which is a great experience! Enjoy your stay in Cuenca. Let us know when you return.
