About Phil Kennemer
We traveled many places in the world looking for a place to retire and chose Ecuador because of its beauty, its climate, its friendly warm people, its affordability and peacefulness. We were anxious to leave behind the heat and humidity of Houston, Texas. Now we own a beautiful home high in the Andes mountains in a wonderful place called Cuenca and we also own this gorgeous ocean front condo here in Salinas. It is only a 5 hour drive between the two so we enjoy the mountains and the sea frequently. We love hosting people and sharing the wonderfulness of Ecuador with them.
Phil Kennemer purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Phil Kennemer chose Salinas
We had wanted have a place on the coast we could enjoy occasionally and the rent out to discriminating guest the rest of the time. We wanted a luxurious place with lots of amenities. We traveled up and down the coast of Ecuador and this place was the best we found anywhere. In Salinas the waters are calm and bay like, not choppy like the rest of the coast. The town is a well developed resort town not a dusty fishing village with no hot water. It is often called a little Miami and it has all the comforts and beauty you seek in an ocean vacation resort.
What makes this Condo unique
Because of its "middle of the Malecon" location it is much quieter and peaceful than those units which front the main beach at San Lorenzo. It is easy to enjoy the beach and all the restaurants without having to endure the noise of loud rock bands and discos that you find toward the main beach and yacht club. Also, it is located in Salinas' newest most modern luxury condo. With two spas, a steam and dry sauna, gym, and two swimming pools , and 24 hour service staff, it is like living in a 5 start hotel. The views from our windows are spectacular and the whole experience is as good as it gets on the coast of Ecuador.

Lively place, great location. Well equipped. We were a bit taken aback by an extensive and expensive inventory, especially when the inventory was inaccurate and a number of the items were missing. The guest manual for example indicated we would have to pay US$100 for a missing microwave plate. However, the owner later told us he just had not updated the guest manual or removed the inventory listing. We were there during carnival so found it a bit noisy but one of the bedrooms has no windows and is quieter. Great air conditioning!

The pool area was good and lots of expats to chat with in that area,Phil gave detailed instructions for settling in. good guest book in condo that will point you in the right direction ,overall an enjoyable experience

Real nice condo in a very secure building.
My relaxing stay at the Kennemers
I found the interior of the condo to be clean, well-maintained and appealing to the eye. i enjoyed taking my coffee out on the balcony and watched the people and boats in the water. One could hear the soothing sound of the waves thrashing upon the shore. This melted away all my stress and worries. On the property was a jacuzzi, sauna and outdoor pool. The condo is situated right on the malecon- extremely close to many fine restaurants. My favorite restaurants were "The Luv-In Oven" and "Crepes". These two are not to be missed! While there I went on a "train-bus" tour of Salinas. I found this to be a must for learning about the area. There is also a city bus tour. I went in a few shops and visited outdoor booths that sold some unique momentos that I bought for gifts. I hope to return to the Kennemers" condo and most certainly would recommend it to others.
The Best property in town
We spent a good time in Salinas and stayed at the best property in town. Aquamira building offered whatever we wanted during our stay . Clean ,secure and well kept apartment we could have hoped for .
The fitness equipments were not up to par as we are fitness fanatics, if not I would have given 5 stars .
Salinas bay offers the most calm and warm waters available on the coast of Ecuador. The town itself has many great restaurants and cafes , discos, night clubs, artisan market as well as great public services such as hospitals and clinics. Because of these features there is more than enough water and ocean related activities to keep the whole family engaged for many days.
