For sale: fully-furnished 2-bedroom luxury condo in prime location

This super luxury, two-bedroom, fully furnished Cuenca condo has tons of amenities and is ideally located in the fashionable and popular Ordonez Lasso neighborhood. Immediately as you walk through the door of this 7th-floor apartment, every sense is dazzled. An open living, dining, and bar area shines with recessed ceilings and glamorous lighting, beautiful chandeliers, lighted bookshelves, curio cabinets, and a one-of-a-kind backlit bar with plenty of storage and bar stools for four. This is a perfect entertaining condo, with a grand gourmet kitchen, a TV room with Surround Sound, an Alexa voice-activated system that manages the house from lights to music, 2 parking spots, and a bodega/storage unit.

The upscale building has 24/7 security and two elevator banks. The condo also boasts one of the largest walk-in closets (with an adjoining bathroom) that could easily be turned into a third en-suite bedroom. Due to the plentiful storage throughout the condo, even the largest wardrobe could be accommodated in other areas of the house if a three-bedroom unit is what you are looking for. There is also a large laundry room with a washer and dryer, another bathroom off the laundry room, and a glamorous and ample-size social bathroom.

This stunning condo is 166 sq. meters (1,781 sq. ft) in size, not including the two parking spaces and the bodega. There are two good-sized en-suite bedrooms with spacious storage, custom-crafted closets, and in the primary bedroom, a lovely dressing table, that could also be used as a small desk, as it’s equipped with an electrical outlet — perfect for a computer or laptop.

The oversized cook’s kitchen is fully equipped with every kind of upgrade and add-on including corner cabinet storage, pull-outs for everything from spices to cleaning supplies, and wonderful drawers with wooden upper roll out drawers for cutlery and kitchen items and a second large drawer below, doubling the size of the storage. The kitchen also has a good-sized pantry area. The inviting kitchen also has an eat-in kitchen table to enjoy casual meals with friends and family, as well as a formal dining room next to the living room for entertaining guests, All kitchen appliances are high-end, top of the line products, including GE Profile and Samsung models.

The laundry room includes a sink and a small bathroom and is located directly off the kitchen.

From the open concept living area, you head towards the two bedrooms, walking through a TV room equipped with a large smart TV and a Surround Sound system that makes watching movies a total experiential event. Both bedrooms are en-suite and the massive walk-in closet (basically a room) with an additional bathroom is made for a king or queen, with all kinds of pull-outs, pant hangers, shoe racks, jewelry storage, hanging closets, and multiple drawers, plus a cozy cushioned ottoman, that’s perfect for putting on your shoes. Because this exquisite dressing room is so large and has an attached bathroom, it could easily be turned into a 3rd bedroom or study if you don’t need a massive closet. (But who doesn’t want that?)

The Ordonez Lasso area of Cuenca is just a 15-minute walk to the historic downtown center and is on the Tranvia (tram) route that whisks you downtown in a matter of minutes. The condo is within walking distance to Cuenca’s largest grocery store chain, Supermaxi, and close to restaurants, cafes, stores, pharmacies, as well as a block from the Tomebamba River.

For sale: stunning, secluded modern sustainable home near El Cajas

This stunning modern, sustainable and ecological home in the rolling hills and secluded mountains near El Cajas National Park is a slice of heaven. This unusual, contemporary home is divided into a two-bedroom, fully-furnished main house and a two-bedroom basement suite, with a living, dining, and kitchen area.

The living areas have sweeping vaulted wood ceilings. German floating floors bring warmth and ambiance to the home. Partial zones including in the master bedroom and in the offices have heated flooring. The PVC double-glazed windows keep the home perfectly insulated, and the imported pot-belly wood stove in the living room provides a cozy feel on those chilly mountain evenings. All window coverings are from Hunter Douglas. The home is built out of high-strength metal and has antiseismic construction ensuring a solid foundation.

The 5,000 sq. meter lot is breathtaking, with unspoiled and serene valley, mountain, and pasture land views.

The home has a direct water supply of pure water from the Mazan River, verified by laboratory analysis. Part of the river runs through the property.

An Osram LED energy-saving electrical system is situated both inside and outside of the house. Additional exterior lighting comes from a system of reflectors. A hydroelectric turbine system generates electricity, but city electricity is also available. Both 110 and 220 voltage are available.

There is a security alarm system connected to your phone, as well as a metal gate and intercom. Multi-lock, extra-reinforced steel doors ensure safety from a fire and the main home’s door is constructed of beautiful wood and locks imported from Italy. The downstairs 79.4 sq. meter (855 sq ft) suite is easily accessible from a high-security entrance from the outside and inside the main house via a retractable ladder system, but the suite — perfect for guests or renters — also has its own private entrance, The suite is 1.5 meters under the surface land and 3 meters below the house.

The downstairs area also includes two storage areas — and one giant food pantry for storing and saving food, medical and everyday supplies.

Both homes have a well/septic tank, drainage around the entire structure, and are wired for wireless Internet (the owner is in the computer business so high-speed Internet is key), Direct TV, an HD satellite system, digital audio equipment, and security cameras. There is also a covered carport suitable for one car and plenty of driveway parking to accommodate guests.

The asking price for this stunning modern, sustainable and ecological home in the rolling hills and secluded mountains near El Cajas National Park is $475,000.

Restored downtown colonial is modern and one-of-a-kind

This artistic, bright, and airy, modern downtown Cuenca property is zoned for residential or commercial use and is housed in an old colonial home in the heart of El Centro. There is nothing like this creative, open, and light space, As a home, the open concept area includes a living and dining room separated by a beautiful sculptural central atrium surrounded by glass showcasing a stone garden and a live tree. The kitchen is located just off the dining room and there is also a guest bathroom on the first floor. With skylights, bamboo ceilings, brick walls, huge windows, and a nod to the eclectic, this home would be like no other in the downtown area.

Upstairs is room for one bedroom with a large bath, and a small terrace overlooking the red roofs of Cuenca. As a commercial space for a gallery, restaurant, or store, the space is limited only by your imagination.

The colonial home itself is over 200 years and was gutted and refurbished two years ago. New fixes were done in May, 2022. The juxtaposition of the old and new makes this one of the most unique properties in the historic center.

This one-of-a-kind house has movement sensors, a security system, double doors (one outside door and a glass door as you enter the property), and is the perfect property for those with an inventive spirit and vision.

This artistic, bright, and airy, modern downtown Cuenca property is listed at $157,000. See it soon. This is one property that won’t last long.

Introducing Luspa the wonder kitty

Luspa is a 1-1/2 year old neutered male, DSH tuxedo cat that belongs to my neighbor. He’s been vaccinated, wormed and has received flea meds.

From the rescuer:

He was abandoned at the end of my street at just 5 weeks old and I took him in with a promise to take care of him as long as I was in Ecuador.

Jet Blue: NO, you do not need to be fully vaxxed to return to EC

While traveling in the US on business, I received an email from Jet Blue saying you must be fully vaxxed to return to EC with the last vax 14 days prior to return.

This is a lie! I went to the Denver airport and spoke with United airlines, and they confirmed it’s either vaxxed or a negative RT-PCR test. I then went to the Jet Blue counter, and she also confirmed it’s either vaxxed or a negative RE-PCR test. I showed her the email I received, and she said it’s incorrect and that she would advise her supervisor.

JetBlue’s incompetency damn near caused me a heart attack. For sure, they ruined my day. I am boarding the flight today in FLL to return to EC and will again speak with them.

Re: Any experiences with Vibes Travel Store

Has anyone booked a trip with Vibes Travel Store? A friend and I did. We sent our deposit by cash transfer, they had promised to send us our flights and all our details immediately upon receipt. That was March 29th.

We requested our flight info over and over. They then ghosted us, through WhatsApp they kept asking us to send more and more money with no proof of any actual trip. We told them we would pay the balance immediately upon proof of our flights and our booking. They refused to answer at all.

I had an Ecuadorian friend contact them in fluent Spanish. They promised her they would send everything immediately over and over, then ghosted her too. So she called from different phones.

They would promise again each time to send a proper invoice with details and get right back to her.

They never returned a call. One after another they ghosted each phone she reached out from.

Then they sent an invoice for thousands more dollars, still without flights or details.

I texted them I would pay the balance as soon as I was given actual airline reservations, which had been promised over a month before. I wanted to call and verify with an airline as I had lost faith in them. Or I would like a refund of my deposit as they had no proof of any trip. At that point they ghosted and blocked me.

I am disappointed. I was really looking forward to the trip offered to Turkey, Greece and Egypt. I was fully prepared to pay what they had asked. But not with being scammed. No travel agency has ever treated me like that. I am not gullible.

Does anyone else have any experience with booking with them, good or bad?

Is it just us? We realize flight prices have gone crazy. If they had been honest and just told us they could no longer buy tickets that fit the budget we would have understood.

They could have refunded with integrity, or told us the situation. But, instead, they ignored us and when my friend reached out just kept saying it was done and they would get right back with her or us. They never did. We were supposed to leave early June. We are out our $600 deposit. If they had had their way, we would be out $6000 more.

I didn’t want anyone else to go through this. By the same token I would love to know if anyone has had a good trip with them.

I know the price hikes and fuel increases may have made us all a casualty. Perhaps they simply couldn’t follow through because of the flights not locked in at the price they based the trip on. But they should have communicated with us.

Glory & Natasha – urgent rehoming needed by Monday

Due to no fault of their own, urgent rehoming is needed for two spayed female kitties. Their owner is very ill and must move to assisted living on Monday. May 23rd. The owner cannot bring her cats to the facility and she is desperate to find a good home(s) for them.

These adorable kitties have lived indoors with some safe outdoor access. Vaccinations and exams are needed at this point and flea medication is recommended if the cats have outdoor access.
