“This should be rated as a 5-star+ hostess/accommodation! Fiona is outstanding! She has all of the nice touches-from soaps and shampoo to salt, pepper, coffee, milk! She has clear instructions for WiFi, local restaurants, tours and tips! She also helped us secure a ride to Manta. Her accommodation is THE most clean of any we have used with AirBNB (and most are considered clean)! Her home is a lovely oasis in Puerto Lopez! We loved having our morning coffee on the upper deck to view the world passing by and feel the AM breeze. The bonus feature is Fiona’s menagerie of very loving critters! If you are an animal lover then you’ll be in your glory because they will sit for as long as you are willing to stroke them! Highly recommended for a single or couple!”

“Seven out of 5 stars. The town of Puerto Lopez, while rustic, has its charms. The beach is large and one can rent a well shaded chair for the very small sum of $5.00 U.S. One can get snacks or beer from any of the numerous cabinas along the beachfront Malecon or can eat at one of the many good restaurants directly across the street from the beach. There is a very good fish market in the village and also a very good fresh fruit and veggie market. People greet you as you walk along through the town and having tuk-tuk as the main form of public transport gives the town a good vibe. However, the very best thing about Puerto Lopez is the excellent Air B&B we rented, entitled Bella Vista. The site includes a beautiful, spacious bottom floor apartment with an attached large covered seating area in the “back”. Surrounded by flowers and plants, sitting in the morning listening to the birds sing while sipping a coffee is extremely Zen. The area also includes a wood fired pizza oven and a bbq which would make anyone with a backyard jealous. The apartment kitchen is very well set up with a full-sized fridge, a large 6 burner stove and all the modern appliances one requires. The bedroom is spacious and air conditioned with a very comfortable full king sized bed. The bathroom is also spacious and very modern. As an added bonus, one can actually flush toilet paper, unheard of anywhere else we have visited in Ecuador. The huge yard which is decorated with numerous tropical plants, flowers and palms, includes a pool which is shared with the owners. Walking around the yard with the aroma of San Palo wood wafting through the air, gazing at the blooming flowers and watching the numerous birds fliting from branch to palm tree and soaking in the sun, this gem of a place is truly an oasis which feels like private resort that only the very rich could frequent. Having said all that, the truest gems are the owners, Paul and Susan. They are friendly, respectful and went way beyond the norm to make us feel comfortable and welcome. They offered whatever assistance we required, in many cases long before we had to ask a question. We shared numerous meals, the most memorable of which was when we had pizza baked in the wood fired oven. We were at Bella Vista during the COVID-19 crisis and as the Ecuadorian government was making announcements about closing the Airports, they did everything possible to assist us so we could catch a flight out. They are truly wonderful people and without a doubt the very best hosts of any establishment we have ever stayed, anywhere. They are reason I add two more stars to the rating of this beautiful place.”

“One of my all time favorite Airbnbs. The space is beautiful and modern and clean, but incorporates all the traditional, local materials. It’s quite rural feeling, but only a 5-10 minute walk (or faster by trici-taxi) to the beach and the busier parts of town. If you walk up the hill a bit past the house, you get gorgeous views of the town, although the view from your large deck is plenty good. Laying in the hammock on the deck and looking out over the ocean can’t be beat. The hospitality is top-notch. I could not ask for more. This family is awesome and I’m secretly hoping they adopt me :) Do yourself a favor and stay here.”
