We now have three rooms in a charming house 10 minutes by bus from Avenida de las Americas...gardens, fountain, fire circle....relaxing and safe stay in the country but just minutes from downtown. Breakfast is included but also dinner is available.
This house and the village of San Jose de Balzay is very special, sitting above the busy area called "gringolandia." So close to everything and yet tranquil and quiet. A true paradise for your Cuenca stay!
One of the great features is having a gringo for a host, and I can serve as a guide if you want for travels to Banos and the beach (I know a very special place on the beach, off the grid for most tourists).
Interaction with guests
I am full time available as your chef, local guide, information goldmine.
Other things to note
As a professional chef for 25 years, I offer my guests an extraordinary dining experience, with only a $8 daily fee for breakfast and dinner! Impossible to find this kind of deal anywhere else!
No smoking indoors, though we do have a fire circle outdoors. Quiet time 10pm-5am. Otherwise anything goes!
writer, gardener, chef, now retired and living in Cuenca, Ecuador. It has always been my dream in my retirement to run a small B&B. I love to cook, socialize, and share my love for Ecuador and the Latin culture. I can teach my guests many things about living simply but still with comfort and elegance. Imagine sitting around a bonfire in the evening, hearing the sounds of nature, enjoying lively discussions....that's what I offer in addition to a room and breakfast!
