Our websites have promoted the idea of investing in small towns for well over a decade… Smalltown USA as well as small towns in Ecuador.
An April 7, 2011 USA Today article entitled “Most major U.S. cities show population declines” by Haya El Nasser suggests that this is good advice when it says: The 1990s’ urban renaissance that ended decades of decline for many of the nation’s major cities lost steam the past 10 years when most of America’s largest cities either grew more slowly or lost people at a faster rate.
“Many urban scholars saw the 1990s as a breakthrough decade for cities, but it may have been their high watermark for growth,” says Robert Lang, urban studies professor at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas who analyzed the 2010 Census data. “The recession was supposed to help cities by holding people in place, but it appears for now as if it slowed urban development.”
This is why we have invested in Ashe County, North Carolina, Lake County, Florida as well as small Ecuador towns like Cotacachi and San Clemente.
Our sites have also expressed the idea that really great advancements would come when the bridge over the Chone Estuary at Bahia was complete. This has really come true, so we have recently doubled our focus on the areas around Bahia from San Clement up to Canoa.
I believe that this area is a really good place to invest.
However you should always always check the area out personally before you buy. This is why we are offering Ecuador beach rentals in this area. For example we have…
a penthouse rental on the top floor here at Palmazul. This is the Vistazul clubhouse and and includes the swimming pool, tennis courts… and a spa.
The penthouse is right on the beach and is available for rent. These units are fully equipped for longer term stays… kitchen… with full size fridge.
with a view…
two large private balconies…
with these views.
Here is a sunset shot from this Ecuador beach penthouse.
Incredible beauty is good news.
There are still really low prices on Ecuador’s coast… incredible value to our way of thinking. This is one reason we love Ecuador as a place to beat inflation.. Yet the sun is about to set on the really best prices.
Here is a patio shot.
Here are two interior shots. Note all the hardwood trim and doors.
This is the backside of the upstairs unit.
Here you can see the high quality of wood is used.
This is an ideal place to stay if you want to travel the coast and get to know this stretch of Ecuador’s coast from Manta to Canoa where a great deal of the beach expansion is now taking place. You can see below how tiny San Clemente is ideally placed between Manta and Canoa.
You can dine in the clubhouse overlooking Ecuador’s wonderful Pacific coast.
Dinner here is special too. You can visit this Ecuadorian fisherman when he brings in his fresh Pacific catch each day back to the hotel….where you can choose your meal. Few Ecuadorian coastal hotels offer this service. Wonderful Pacific fish, crabs and shrimp that are huge…like this….cooked at the hotel minutes after they are brought off the boat.
Or stroll into nearby Ecuadorian coastal town of San Clemente for dinner or lunch. The penthouse gives you miles of empty beach.
Here we look to the left .
And the right…more quiet Ecuadorian beach.
Let me hasten to add that it is the quiet that Merri and I love. San Clemente is NOT for those who want a bustling city.
San Clemente is a charming rustic, coastal village, 45 minutes north of the port city of Manta , almost exactly in the middle of Ecuador ’s coast.
This property is especially unique because…
The village is quite and leads to dead end road that serves…
this strip of the Pacific. The road runs only a mile or so and has speed bumps. The penthouse is on the beach and the mountain is behind so no one can build. No big project can come in a create a lot of noise.
Palmazul is perfectly located on a dead end road..enjoying proximity to town yet quiet as there is no through traffic. Transportation is also easy and fun…small motorcycles with a seat!
San Clemente is a perfect starting point for exploring Ecuador ’s coast…in the middle so you can reach the north or south of the coast in a hurry.
Yet in San Clemente, the days are full. You are welcome to join the local fishermen who ride this surf out for the day.
Fish from the jetties, stroll the beach, travel the coast, hike, horse ride, play tennis or just relax around the pool or on the beach.
Of course you can also work. Palmazul offers free wireless broadband for your laptop. Enjoy the peace and quiet of Ecuador ’s coast, but always stay in touch electronically with the rest of the world.
Your penthouse has the immediate sea view and private balcony so your comfort does not end when the sun sets. As dusk arrives so does the seas breeze…fresh into your room.
Cozy in your bed…
The surf serenades you in a soft night’s sleep… on a king size bed so you’ll be ready for the gentle surf and Pacific waters warmed by Ecuador ’s never ending sun.
Rents are $135 a night for two. $177 a night for three.
Weekly rates are $750.
