The space

Beautiful and spacious suite with a big terrace, in a tropical garden close to a lake and in front of a swimming pool. It comfortably fits 4 people + two extra persons in a sofa bed if needed.
It is within an exclusive and quiet gated community, with 24/7 security.

The suite has an open space full of natural light, comprising two bedrooms, a living and dining area with a small kitchenette and one bathroom. It also has a laundry area with a washing a drying machine and wardrobe areas.

It includes a spacious terrace with a living area and a dining table, that's next to a tropical garden generous in space with palm trees, tropical flowers, orchids, fruit trees, and a pedestrian area that leads to the lake with views to the surrounding neighbourhood. It almost feels like a small private club.

The garden also has another terrace with a BBQ that's available to our guests on request.

Guests will have access to all the services the suite provides, to its terrace, surrounding gardens, BBQ and pool. There is also a small children playground in the garden families can have access to.

We will receive you at our home on your arrival to show the place and give some recommendations on tourist attractions around the city as well as restaurants, museum, theatre, and other things to do.
We are available to you via mobile phone or in person if we are at home, in case there are any questions or anything is needed.

The gated community is very quiet and has many houses with big courtyards. It has private security 24 hours every day, which means it is completely safe.
It is close to various shopping centres, restaurant areas, theatre, cinemas, etc in the most exclusive sector of the city.
It is 1 minute away from two big shopping malls, 5 minutes driving from Universidad Espiritu Santo, 5 to 10 minutes away from great restaurants, the theatre, Parque Historico and Plaza Lagos, and 20 minutes away from the airport and from the city centre.

The easiest way to move around is by taxi. It is very cheap and we could even organise a dedicated taxi driver if you want to.

We will make sure breakfast ingredients, plates and kitchen ware are stored in the kitchenette cupboards, so that guests can organise it at their most convenient time.

We have a cat, Mati, which you probably won't even notice as she likes to walk around the garden. Other pets are allowed as long as they stay in the garden and don't go into interior areas. Guests are responsible for any damages their pets may do.

PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT. A gorgeous oasis of calm in a very busy big city. Lovely gardens, so well planned out. Very nice and helpful hosts who are eager to share points of interests. Very clean and comfortable. It is a garden house in the host's lovely garden, but still nice and private. We loved it there. Book it, you won't regret. Cons: Only drawback for me was that the WIFI didn't extend to the guest house, so needed to study/work in the garden (which was nice anyway)

The host was in my experience the best host in our AirBnB era. The house was nice and clean, the breakfast and fruit was excellent. The outside relaxing area was just as you picture it, just perfect, sofas, stereo CD player, sealing fans palm trees and birds it was a really enjoyable stay thanks to our host. Tor and Amarilis

Nelson and his family are the best hosts ever. They made us feel at home! They were incredibly helpful for everything: suggestions for activities, calling taxis, etc. The suite is even better than the pictures shows. It is just perfect, very clean. We were so comfortable there! I highly recommend the place to anybody who wants to visit Guayaquil. It is quiet and very safe. Thank you again!

This is a very beautiful and tranquil setting: a bungalow with a large patio in a tropical garden that overlooks an artificial lake. It is a welcome respite from the noise of the city. Unfortunately, a number if issues made our stay less pleasant than it could have been. The home is in a gated community far from the center of Guayaquil, and without a car it's difficult to get around. We took a cab from the airport, and at the gate the guards wouldn't let us in, saying no one had answered the phone at the house, and that our host had gone out for something to eat. This despite the fact that we had sent a detailed arrival schedule several days in advance. We were left sitting in the taxi until our host returned twenty minutes later. . The bungalow is spacious but somewhat haphazardly furnished. Cabinetry had chipped and delaminating formica, there were cobwebs in the kitchen, and the patio furniture was grimy. We prefer to live without air conditioning, but the bungalow has only one window and one sliding door, so cross ventilation was at a minimum. A couple of times in the early morning there was a strong smell of sewage and/or burning garbage. Ecuador is one of those countries where used toilet paper is not flushed but is instead deposited in a small waste basket that is placed next to the toilet. We're used to this, we've been to Latin America before. The problem here was that the receptacle for the paper had no lid and was not lined with a plastic bag. We made do with a plastic bag we had brought with us. When we returned the following evening after a day in the city it (and the kitchen garbage) had not been emptied. We had not been told what to do with it, so we tied everything up and put it outside the door. It was removed the next morning. The kitchen sink does not have hot water, nor does the washing machine. The dryer lint filter had a 1/4 inch thick mat of lint- it hadn't been cleaned for months. Drinking water was not replenished on a daily basis, so we thought perhaps it was our responsibility to provide it. However, the supermarket is a 25 minute walk from the house, and carrying a days worth of water for two people in hot weather is not so easy. On Friday everyone in the main house disappeared for the weekend without notice, and we were left to ourselves for the weekend. We had run out of coffee that morning as well as croissants, so it was back to the supermarket for water, coffee and breakfast material. In retrospect, it would have been nice to have a fact sheet on where to eat Ecuadorean food in the neighborhood, where the supermarket was, which bus to catch for downtown, where the nearest cab stand was, how to get past the guards at the...

We had trouble finding the place but that was mainly due to our low level of Spanish. Marie Theresa was an excellent hostess and took time to explain the local attractions and what to do each day. The main problem was that it listed 2 bedrooms whilst one of the beds was part of the lounge room with a small partition. So much smaller than we expected. The outside area was great with lots of room and a good view across the lake. So long as you realise the limitations of the beds I would recommend.

The Riofrio family were very hospitable and accommodating. The space is exactly as described. The grounds are lovely with a beautiful view of the lake. Location is great with easy access to main highways.
