James was very welcoming and showed us around the apartment which was very well equipped. The neighbourhood is quiet and convenient for buses 30 cents or taxi into town, about a $2 ride. There is a small grocery store just around the corner. The only downside is the yappy dogs which start up at 6.00 in the morning.

I loved this apartment! It was perfect for my 10 day stay - the kitchen was great and the whole place was very clean. A couple other reviews mention the dogs barking, my first morning they were pretty loud pretty early - but other than that there was a bit of barking occasionally during the day, but nothing at night. Definitely not a deal breaker for me! The river path was great and leads right to the large super market, and there's a little market on the same block as the apartment. It's definitely possible to walk that to the center of the city as well. The bus and taxis made the distance from the center manageable at night or when I didn't want to walk. Recommended!! :)

I could not have asked for a more beautiful, relaxing, tranquil space to wind down into retirement from a hectic job. James place is wonderful, and is located in a quiet part of the city near the riverside park. The apartment is well equipped with everything you could ask for. The city of Loja is an easily walkable city with well maintained sidewalks and walking trails. Most everything you could ask for is in walking distance. SuperMaxi is a 10-15 minute walk and the best way to get there is to walk along the gently flowing river in the park. Don't forget the open street market every Saturday just across the river where you can find every type of fresh produce imaginable. For a short term or long term stay I highly recommend James as a host and his apartments as a comfortable, safe and enjoyable place to stay in the beautiful city of Loja.

The overall experience was fantastic. James went out of his way to make us feel welcome and at home. He was very helpful and answered all of our many many questions. The apartment is amazing. It's clean, large, has a great kitchen that makes cooking very easy and a comfortable bed to sleep in. The location is near a very nice park and a short walk to the largest supermarket in Loja. Everything is a $2 taxi ride away and the bus system in Loja is easy to figure out. Some reviews say that the dogs were loud, but we had no problem with them, even with fireworks going (New Years). There is the occasional bark, but unless you are highly sensitive to that type of thing, it shouldn't be a problem. Just give them a good pet! We highly recommend staying here.

Great location in a beautiful city. Close to transport, several small eating places, and a grocery store. Also close to the Linear Park and an easy walk to the Supermaxi. Apartment is well appointed and on a very safe enclosed courtyard, though the neighbourhood is very safe with a police station only a block away. James is an excellent host and very helpful with local information.
