Really Special Ecuador Rose Deal

Here’s a way to enjoy a really special rose deal, even for an entire year if you choose.

I try to have a fresh bouquet of 24 Ecuador roses at our home all the time.? Now a special offer makes this easier and less expensive for you as well.

When I get my two dozen roses, I can normally make them last, looking good, for ten to 14 days.

Here’s what I do.? I split the 24 roses into three long stem bouquets.? After four to seven days, depending on how the roses are looking, I shorten the stems and start to separate and redo the bouquets.

The trick to keep them fresh and beautiful is to make sure each rose is getting plenty of water by shortening their stems.

I took these shots of two dozens roses, (12 Freedom Red variety and 12 Mondial Pinks) I received last week.? Sorry for the poor image quality, these were shot? with my cell phone (my Leica is on the blink).

The original long stem bouquets iopened beautifully, the pinks huge and magnificent.? By this morning they were ready for a trim.

So in our dining area I shortened the stems.? Here are part of the Mondial Pinks. They look great!


The rest of the pink roses remain in the kitchen. ? They are so huge that five of them make a really nice presentation.


Freedom Reds are my favorite so I like to scatter them around the house.

I shortened the stems on these three and they sit in our breakfast nook.


Two more reds sit behind our sofa in the main living area.


One red was suffering and required a ultra short stem to get it water.? That rose looks nice on the coffee table using a shot glass as the vase.


So when our Ecuador rose supplier Hugh Prather, sent me this note:? Gary, if you would like to offer your subscribers a one time order for 24 stems at my cost, $49.95 delivered, let me know. I would like to bring some hope and color into our lives at this time as well as help the people of Ecuador.

That’s a $21.05 reduction off the normal $71 for two dozen fresh roses price… a huge 30% savings .

I had an idea and asked Hugh if he would be able to sign up readers for a year… to receive two dozen Ecuador rose, every two weeks… always at the ultra low price of $49.95.

He said sure!

You have two options.

You can order two dozen Ecuador roses one time for $49.95 right now.? Use the coupon “rosesavingsbygary” for the one-time order.? You save $21.05.? This coupon is valid through Saturday, June 13th.? Click here.

The second option (I am taking) locks in this ultra low price of $49.95 for the next twelve months.? You’ll have fresh Ecuador roses in your home or to give as gifts, and save $505.20 over the year.

To gain the year long price guarantee, place your first order now.? You’ll get Freedom Reds in your first order and up to two other varieties if you choose.? Hugh will work with you personally by email to help you choose the colors you desire.

Every second week Hugh will charge your credit card $49.95 and send you another two dozen magnificent Ecuador roses.

He will work personally with you to choose the varieties you desire for each order as well as provide tips on how to make your roses remain beautiful for longer periods of time.

You can cancel the special orders at any time.

To lock in this wonderful 30% savings for an entire 12 months and get your first bouquet of 24 roses headed to you, Click here.

This is a win, win for everyone… to continually have beautiful roses in the home and to help Hugh assist the rose workers of Ecuador keep their jobs.

Already one huge agency is looking at buying most of the spaces from 2013 onwards, but at Ecuador Living we have a really special benefit.

The decoration was done by Kjetil’s wife, Jessica and her friend, so you can enjoy the Galapagos and the ultimate in cruise luxury.

Right now you can also save $500… plus even more.

See why you can save up to $1,249 on a Galapagos cruise in this luxurious yacht.

This ad below is one (unless you are a travel agent) is one you’ll never see because…

of four words… “All prices are comissionable”. This is an add for travel agents telling them that they can offer the prices above and receive a 15% commission.

We as publishers do not (and never have) accepted commissions on real estate, travel services, cruises, rentals or any of the services we write about.   Because we have a huge readership and because we have worked with Kjetil since he arrived in Ecuador over almost 2 decades ago… we could receive this 15% commission but pass it along to our Ecuador Living Club members in the form of a discount instead.  The savings is as simple as that.

Ecuador Amazon Lodge Update

Ecuador Living Club members get an upgrade on Ecuador Amazon lodge benefits.

La Selva Jungle Lodge is one of the best lodges in Ecuador’s Amazon and  we have been pleased to offer Ecuador Living club members several special privileges.

I was even more pleased to receive this note from our friend Kjetil Haugan. He wrote:  Gary, After several months of negotiations and I have purchased La Selva Jungle Lodge. I  am very optimistic about this and met the staff and the local community last weekend. We will upgrade the lodge into the top eco lodge with very personalized service.

First, the lodge. It has been…


rustic and authentic… in operation since the 1980s and…


offering incredible eco tours… jungle treks… free birding… wonderful cuisine… a true adventure that supports the indigenous community and environment.


The lodge is comfortable plus…


there is an indigenous…


spa and much more.

See here why La Selva is the number one lodge in the jungle.

The previous owners provided Ecuador Living club members a 15% discount (except not airfare from Quito – $130 – and not including their bar bill)   This included all meals and guided excursions and transportation to and from the lodge.

They also provided upgrades, plus the Canopy Breakfast free.

THE CANOPY BREAKFAST: The normal price for the breakfast is $30 per person and it is a real thrill.   Breakfast is served  135 feet high above the forest in our canopy tower at dawn. The tower is one of the most coveted spots at the lodge because of the wildlife sightings and perspectives from there.  Your Ecuador Living subscribers should bring their cameras.  We’ll bring delicious food and impeccable service.

There was more.  In addition to the discount… the free Canopy Breakfast they also provided a FREE the choice of either the SUNSET CRUISE or CANDLELIGHT DOCKSIDE DINNER.

Candlelight Dinner (Normal Price: $90 per couple: This is an extremely romantic candlelit dockside dinner for two on our lake alone except for you private attentive waiter and a single table. We’ll light up the entire dock with a trail of candles that leads to your table. Complimentary Cocktails OR Wine.

Sunset Cruise (Normal Price: $80 per couple):  Enjoy our decorated dugout canoe with snacks and wine; a sailor will take you both along the lagoon to savior the beauty of a sunset in the Amazon, completely alone and cheering for your love.

Ecuador Living club members have been able to save far more than the cost of a year’s club membership on just a La Selva Jungle Lodge adventure.

Now as La Selva is upgraded so too will be the benefits.  We have worked closely with Kjetil both in his Palmazul and Vistazul projects and his outstanding Galapagos cruises.  His new ownership of La Selva will add en expanded benefit to Ecuador Living club membership.
