Acoustic guitar or ukulele


My name is Loki and I am from the UK. I have been travelling around South America for the past couple of months but I am really starting to miss playing guitar. Does anyone have any instruments they are no longer using (preferably an acoustic guitar or ukulele but even a harmonica would be amazing)? Looking forward to hearing from you,

Help: Amelia and Dora need a new home

Sadly, due to a severe medical issue, Amelia and her daughter Dora are needing a new home as their parents are having to leave Ecuador right away and won’t be able to return.

Everyone involved is very upset about this and we are all trying to find an ideal new home for the adorable and lovable pair of cats. Mom, Amelia, is about 7 years old and her baby, Dora, is about 5 1/2. They are both in great health, fun to play with, and very well behaved.

They have some furniture of theirs to bring with them to their new house so they just need someone to love them.

Little Cooke

Cooke is 12 years old and has lived at the FAAN shelter for 9 years. She was pregnant and all of her babies were adopted. She also had skin problems which have since been resolved.

She is spayed, vaccinated, wormed and has received flea medication. She is only 14 kg. Cooke is docile and gets along with other doggies. She likes children too. Cooke is fine on leash and likes to walk slow.

Cookie had a benign tumor removed from her mammary glands about 2 months ago. This may have occurred because of having several litters.

If you would like to meet this sweet and charming girl, please contact me. She has spent most of her life in a shelter with no home of her own.

High dose Vitamin C – a powerful antioxidant

Vitamin C is a primary water-soluble antioxidant which increases extracellular collagen production and is essential for proper immune cell functioning.

High dose vitamin C is beneficial any time you are under greater than usual amounts of stress, feeling excessive fatigue when your immune system needs bolstering to fight acute or chronic viral and bacterial infections when your skin needs to be restored to glowing conditions such as after sun damage or surgery and to help improve the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy like fatigue, nausea and vomiting.

Two-time Nobel Prize-winning chemist, Linus Pauling, initially proposed intravenous vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) to treat viral infections (such as Lyme, Lupus, and Epstein Barr virus) and cancers.

Full body deep tissue massage – 90-minutes session

A deep tissue massage is a type of massage that aims to invigorate and heal a person’s muscles and connective tissue.

Deep tissue massage works on specific areas of muscle tension in the body. Stress, bad postures, or intensive physical activity can cause contracted muscles, and the best way to treat this is a good massage.

The main benefit of a deep tissue massage is that it can help relieve pain caused by stressed and strained muscles—the massage focus on targeting specific muscles and connective tissue.

Quadruple donations this week only and why

By now you know from our posts that FAAN completed a successful Kick-Start Matching Campaign.

Together, we doubled a $20,000 donation from a generous and anonymous donor for FAAN’s capital campaign for the land purchase and building of the first modern US-Standard Animal Shelter in South America.
Congratulations Cuenca!

On hearing the campaign results, our donor announced on Saturday that he would quadruple donations, this week only, so that collectively we can raise an additional $10,000.

FAAN’s capital campaign is urgent. Why? 1) Because FAAN dogs received their eviction notice and we need to find permanent land and move our over 140 dogs by December 31st and 2) Our current upper shelter is also at risk of a landslide, so the sooner we can relocate our animals to their permanent and secure sanctuary the better.

Stunning 40-year-old El Centro home with courtyard and retail store

This stunning 40-year-old downtown Cuenca home with 9 bedrooms, 7 baths, a courtyard, and gardens, plus a large backyard … perfect for growing fruits, vegetables, and flowers … and a storage shed, also has a commercial store on a popular and busy street, providing the potential for immediate income.

This building has incredible bones and could be a gorgeous refurbished colonial. It is not a patrimonial house which means you can re-do the facade and exterior of the building and implement interior changes without permits. And with so many architectural and design features already in the building, upgrading will not be a major job. Included are cedar hardwood floors and a cedar staircase, rooms with parquet floors, wooden ceilings, 2 kitchens, a living room, a sitting room, fabulous wooden encased windows, a pyramidal skylight, and unusual and striking wooden accent pieces.

The upstairs is move-in ready, with some possible bathroom upgrades, while the downstairs is open and ready for your imagination to go wild. Whether building your own dream home, a historic bed and breakfast, a glorious downtown eatery, or a combination of a live and work-in property in the heart of the city, this is a chance to own a piece of El Cento, without breaking the bank on renovations and dealing with the headaches of construction in this UNESCO World Heritage Site preserved area.

Located just one block from Parque San Sebastian and the Museum of Modern Art, the neighborhood is amazing, with a multitude of restaurants, cafes, stores and the museum within two blocks. Walking to Parque Calderon takes only 8 minutes and the tram is just a few blocks away whisking you throughout Cuenca. This is a high-traffic area and any commercial business is sure to benefit from this favored city destination.

The 518 sq. meter home (5,576 sq. ft) has an entrance from the store as well as its own, private front door. An entryway leads to the courtyard, one of the kitchens, a large room currently being used for storage, and a lovely hallway that leads to some of the bedrooms. The current business in front of this house is a colorful and successful coconut juice business, but access to a downstairs kitchen means this could easily be a cafe, bakery, small restaurant or a larger venue incorporating the courtyard and other open areas on the ground floor. The downstairs could also be an incredible restaurant with an outdoor garden, a beautiful Airbnb or bed and breakfast (with personal quarters upstairs) or a larger boutique hotel taking up the entire home. Additionally, the backyard could be turned into an amazing organic garden and orchard for personal or commercial use.

Heading up a beautiful cedar staircase, to the second floor, you’ll find the formal living room, dining room, sitting room, primary bedroom and other guest suites. There is a third staircase that takes you to a small terrace overlooking the 118 sq. meters (1,270 sq. feet) backyard and garden. In the backyard, there is also a laundry room and a stone storage room with historic brick and stone walls surrounding the perimeters.

The listing price for this stunning 40-year-old downtown Cuenca home with 9 bedrooms, 7 baths, a courtyard, and gardens, plus a commercial store is $650,000 negotiable.

Address: Sucre y Coronel Guillermo Tálbot, Cuneca.

Unfurnished, Negotiable, Pets are allowed.

Luxury new-construction building offers rare 3-bedroom unit

This is a rare opportunity to buy a 3-bedroom unit with mountain and river views, in the new construction, luxury Todos Santos project in historic, downtown Cuenca. Due to personal reasons, the original buyers of this incredible, custom-designed unit created from 2 condos, had to back out, allowing this 2,050.86 sq. ft apartment, with expansive views in two directions, to once again be on the market.

This very special riverfront project is designed by Cuenca’s premier downtown development company, ISAM. The project, which breaks ground in March, 2023, has received tons of attention and interest and nearly one-half of the units are already pre-sold. But there are still some incredible apartments left and this one is a gem. With a large terrace off the living space, 3 bedrooms, and 3 baths, the condo is one of the best for its views and location.

The Todos Santos project, which will have 35 condos, will be located in one of Cuenca’s most prized areas, near the historic Todos Santos Church and terraced down to the Tomebamba River. This high-end building will have beautiful trees, and lots of light thanks to strategically placed windows, terraces, skylights, light shafts, and open-sky areas, as well as multiple public spaces with amazing views.

The floor plan for this condo is included, and a computerized 3-D view of the entire complex and this unit can be seen by making an appointment with Ecuador At Your Service, The 3-D presentation will give you a wonderful idea of not only the inside of the building and the apartment but also the spectacular views you can see from this condo.

Buying a pre-construction property allows you to further customize this unit to your particular taste and enjoy the excitement of living in a tailor-made home designed exactly the way you have always dreamed. It also allows you to stagger payments over the 2.5 years of construction providing flexible financing. To purchase this unit a $5000 reservation fee is needed, and in 30 days, you will put 30% down (including the initial $5000) An individual payment plan that best suits your own financial requirements will then be set up.

If you’ve ever hoped of living in an ISAM project, by the river, now is the time. If you’ve ever wished a 3-bedroom unit would open in Casa Todos Santos, now it has! This is going to be one of the most coveted complexes downtown and will have two elevators, a rarity in El Centro residential buildings. The building will also have a street entrance and an entrance off the beautiful riverwalk.

The listing price for this 3-bedroom unit with mountain and river views, in the new construction, luxury Todos Santos project in historic, downtown Cuenca is $355,000. Three-bedroom apartments in downtown, El Centro are few and far between, so don’t miss out. Contact Ashley@ecuadoratyourservice.com at Ecuador At Your Service today for a 3-D walk-through of this incredible, one-of-a-kind condo. Renderings of the complete project are also available, as are floor plans and a price list for additional smaller units.

39-acre Cumbe rural property with gorgeous custom home and sunroom

This spectacular 39+ acre Cumbe rural valley property, with a gorgeous 1,762 custom home offers nature at every turn, and eye-popping vistas in all directions. This home offers peace, tranquility, and privacy in one of the most beautiful settings in Ecuador. Live a totally sustainable life in fabulous natural surroundings, amongst deer, flocks of parrots, and other beautiful, natural trees and flowering shrubs. Breathe in the fresh air, drink clean water, and hike through the scent-filled Eucalyptus tree forests above (but on) the land.

The property includes a 5 stall horse barn plumbed for bathroom and storage, 1 shelter in the pasture, 2 outbuildings, concrete water tanks, wooden fencing, a carport, potable (city) water, a deeded well, a pond, and irrigation rights. Originally established as a horse farm, this land is also perfect for grazing cattle and small animals, and for growing crops.

The beautiful custom home with arched windows and special details was completely remodeled in 2015 to North American standards and has 2 elegant bedrooms and 2 full baths, A new asphalt double tile roof was installed during this first renovation, and all new plumbing and electricity were installed. There is a fireplace with an insert in the living room that keeps you cozy and warm on those rainy days, closets with built-in drawers, handmade chandeliers, a sitting room, and other high-end finishes.

In 2022 a large sunroom and outdoor kitchen with a clay oven — perfect for grilling meats, making pizza, cooking up homemade bread, or warming soup for a crowd, was built. When the wind comes through the valley, this sunroom is an ideal refuge and there’s no better place for entertaining friends and family. A new septic tank, a 500-liter water tank, new fencing, and additional upgrades were also added in 2022.

The open-concept living area includes 2 living spaces, one with a stone fireplace and insert, and the other surrounded by arched windows and wooden beamed ceilings which currently serve as a sitting and reading room. Light and airy, with sunlight streaming in, this is the perfect place to relax with a morning cup of coffee. A dining nook completes this part of the living space.

The charming separate kitchen is perfectly appointed and equipped with a dishwasher, stove top, oven, refrigerator, white cast iron sink, and a washer/dryer which are all included in the purchase price. Select furnishings are available, and there is a possibility of making this a complete turnkey, move-in-ready home should you desire to just bring your suitcases.

The master suite has a large dressing room/office, a bath with a separate shower, and a soaking tub for 2 with a large skylight over the tub. This is the perfect place to unwind with a glass of wine after a day in the country.

Good quality Internet allows for easy movie streaming and international calls, An ETAPA phone is also available, and Movistar works perfectly in this secluded setting.

The property is located on a non-through road so is very private and safe, with spectacular mountain and pastoral views. No big power lines are found on the pristine land.

A friendly and reliable caretaker/neighbor, who is great with animals, will look after the property when you are away and can help with tending to the garden and to the animals, or perform other daily chores should you desire help. Fresh eggs and milk are available daily.

Large plots of land on the property are ideal for expansive organic vegetable gardens, greenhouses, and orchards. The town of Cumbe is just minutes away and here you can find everyday supplies, groceries, pharmacies, banks, stores, handicrafts, and clinics. Cuenca, the cultural capital of Ecuador, is 14 miles away. Much of the road to Cuenca is paved. When you arrive in Cumbe, you travel about 15 minutes on a dirt road, maintained by the local community to get to this special and private Shangra-la.

This is a rare opportunity to own your own very large and beautiful piece of nature close to shopping and an airport. With plenty of space to add other homes and outbuildings, this property can be turned into a family home, a vacation getaway, a spa or retreat center, or a working and live-in farm. The best part?
