Near Salinas Ecuador House for Sale


Amy Pinoargote who conducts our Salinas south Ecuador coastal real estate tours just sent details about a great house for sale near Salinas.

There are three days left to join our International Club at the 2009 price and save an extra $501.

The club offers extra value in 2010 because Ecuador’s beaches are broad… mostly empty and…

fun.  Here is a family playing in Ecuador coastal rock pools at low tide.

Sunsets are world class… plus prices remain really low.

Therefore it is no surprise that our Ecuador each real estate tours are very popular.  We have conducted Ecuador mid beach tours for several years and last year tested the first Salinas Ecuador south beach tour.  This tour was such a success that we added four Salinas Ecuador hosted by Amy Pinaorgote.

International Club members can attend these tours free.

These tours offer special value because there are some great Ecuador beach bargains.  Here is one Ecuador coastal bargain in this note that Amy just sent:

Gerardo and I have been visiting local properties for sale in preparation for the March Salinas Ecuador South Coast Tour and just saw a townhouse I am very excited about.

Salinas-house-for-sale

$58,000 Ecuador beach townhouse entrance.

This property is located in a quiet development across the street from the beach, near the town of Ballenita, about 10 miles from Salinas.

This Salinas area house is a 1,250 square foot townhouse on a 2000 square foot lot.  The owner is an Ecuadorian lawyer, who has a weekend home in the same development. He built the townhouse on speculation and has it listed at the incredible price of $58,000.

The home has a neutral color scheme, with tile floors throughout.  Downstairs it features a living/dining area, with sliding glass doors opening to a large brick patio.

$58,000 Ecuador beach townhouse dining area.

The kitchen, a half bath and a nice sized bodega (storage closet) are also located on the ground floor.

Salinas-house-for-sale

$58,000 Ecuador beach townhouse kitchen.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, two full baths and a linen closet.

Salinas-house-for-sale

$58,000 Ecuador beach townhouse bedroom.

The owner says he built the place with care, as if it were to be his own home.  This shows in details like the high wooden ceilings in the bedrooms, the color selection of the bricks in the patio and the design of the curving staircase leading to the 2nd story.

$58,000 Ecuador beach townhouse stairs.

As with most properties in Ecuador, appliances are not included.  But bring your furnishings and this place is ready to move in.  It has washer hookups, an outside bodega, a nice front patio and hot water piping throughout the home.  The latter is not something to take for granted in coastal Ecuador.  Due to the temperate climate, many homes built primarily for the Ecuadorian market do not have hot water piping.  Instead the owners use instant water heaters on the shower heads and cold water throughout the rest of the house.

Although the home doesn’t have ocean views, it is just a short walk to the beach.  There is even a pedestrian tunnel leading directly out of the complex, so you don’t have to worry about crossing the street.

The complex is gated and there is 24 hour security.

I can’t promise this property will still be available at the time of our March tour, but if it is we will definitely visit it.  In the meantime I will be busy finding other great deals in the Salinas area.

Amy

P.S. speaking of beach properties in the $50,000 range, there are still two suites left at Spondylus II.  Both are located on the 2nd story and have ocean views.  The 580 square foot unit is priced at $51,000 and the 650 square foot unit at $56,400.

You can get more information about these properties with an Ecuador Living subscription.

Ecuador Beach & Mountain Retirement


Ecuador beach retirement?   Retire in Ecuador in the cool Andes? Or just live in Ecuadorian the mountains or on the sea?  The best way to know is to visit and see Ecuador for more than a few days.

This is why we have created a Retire-in-Ecuador inspection Surf & Turf Hotel program so you can live a month in the Andean mountains and on the Ecuador’s coast at prices far below rates you would normally pay.

The Retire-in-Ecuador program is designed to help you see a huge chunk of Ecuador as you immerse yourself in the wonderful culture and get to know Ecuador’s friendly people.

There is a secret to the program.  You inspections are centered around two seemingly isolated… yet central locations to help you see as much of the country in a most efficient way.

These locations are Cotacachi… north of Quito and San Clemente… north of Manta.

Surf & Turf lets you stay at Meson de Las Flores and Palmazul two of our favorite small hotels in Ecuador.

Welcome to Meson de las Flores… our colonial hotel.

Meson is in Cotacachi and near Otavalo. This area offers the essence of Andean friendliness and colonial charm. Breakfasts are included in your plan and served in this open air, central courtyard where our friendly staff helps you dine Al Fresco in the clean mountain air.

Or you can dine in the mural room.

Meson is located directly off Cotacachi’s main plaza and next to the village cathedral and Plaza. Here is a view from Meson of the cathedral at dawn.

From the minute you enter the hotel, you feel its history…

yet the rooms have all been renovated for your complete comfort.

Enjoy the company of Meson guests during evenings in the fireplace room for an evening snack, drink and a blazing fire to ward of the cool mountain air.

Cotacachi is perfectly located so you have access to Quito, Otavalo and Ibarra and surrounds. This is one of the major areas where new residents are moving.

Our normal surf and turf plan provides you with two weeks stay here at Meson de las Flores.  Then you head for Ecuador’s coast.

Palmazul Hotel & Spa is north of Manta, the central hub for reaching Ecuador’s beaches.  Palmazul is a new hotel right on the beach. Here I am working in the beach view dining room where your breakfast (also included) is served.

tranquil-work-at-sea

Both hotels Meson and Palmazul have just 15 rooms to assure privacy and personal attention.

You enjoy special savings on these hotel accommodations for two weeks in the mountains and two weeks on the sea.

This Ecuador Hometel plan cuts your hotel costs in half and makes these wonderful hotels your home.

Enjoy the colonial Ecuador hotel in the Andes El Meson de las Flores and on the sea at Palmazul…14 days stay in each hotel for a low total cost of $1,299 Single, $1,499 couple order here.

Please check with us for space availability before you book. Contact us at mesondelasflores@gmail.com

Ecuador Coastal Hotels Savings are now available at Palmazul Coastal Hotel Spa, one of the newest Ecuador beach hotels.

Palmazul sits directly on Ecuador’s beach and is offering an Ecuador coastal Hometel program so you can have a home away from home on Ecuador’s beach…live in luxury on the Ecuador sea at very low cost for a month (or longer) at a time.

Palmazul becomes your home for an Ecuadorian coastal adventure on the Pacific.

This is your Ecuador coastal swimming pool and tennis court…really on the beach…overlooking the Ecuadorian Pacific.

This is your Ecuador coastal swimming pool and tennis court…really on the beach…overlooking the Ecuadorian sea.

Here are some snapshots of the Palmazul Coastal Hotel and Spa and next door Vistazul condos.   You’l stay either in the hotel or in a two bedroom condo based on availability… but everyone is entitled to use the club house, dining rooms, pools, tennis courts, spa and beach.

The monthly price includes a wonderful served breakfast from this dining room 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.

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.  Bahia, Ecuador’s nicest coastal town is 30 minutes north.  Palmazul is perfectly located on a small road that ends just a short distance away into a cliff  thus  enabling you to enjoy proximity to town yet it is quiet as there is no through traffic. Transportation is also easy and fun…small jitneys everywhere!

San Clemente is a perfect starting point for exploring Ecuador ’s coast…in the middle of Ecuador beaches so you can reach the north or south of the coast in a day.

Yet in San Clemente, the days are full.  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.

The spa also has a treatment room where you can enjoy a massage.

Your room will have a view and private balcony so your comfort does not end when the sun sets.

As dusk arrives so does the sea breeze…fresh into your room.

Cozy in your bed…

The surf serenades you in a soft night’s sleep…so you’ll be ready for the gentle surf and Pacific waters warmed by Ecuador ’s never ending sun.

To make your reservation, simply choose the order form below.
