Casa El Jardin, Queen En-Suite Room Near the River Tomebamba, Breafast & WiFi

Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Cuenca, Azuay Province
We have a large lovely, Spanish-style hacienda with traditional wooden beams and floors and lots of natural light. The house is completely detached with its own walled-in courtyard and private garden space -- a rarity in the heart of Cuenca. Red-masked Parakeets, Yellow Southern Grosbeaks, & several varieties of humming birds visit our garden regularly.

The historic district of El Centro is less than 10 minutes away by foot or taxi. Two major river green ways are 5 minutes away, perfect for walking or running. We are in one of the only flat part of town, close to parks, shopping, restaurants, and medical services.

Our home is a traditional, Spanish-style hacienda with exposed wooden beams, floors of wood and ceramic, and lots of natural light that streams through the large wooden windows.

The house is two levels with several large...

Interaction with guests
We are a good fit for people who are visiting Cuenca for a vacation -- self-sufficient independent adults who enjoy the adventures travel can bring and who have general questions about Cuenca or surrounding places to visit. This house flows well and is a perfect fit for solo travelers, writers, and anyone looking for a sanctuary close to El Centro without being in the middle of it. This home is also gay friendly.

About the neighbourhood
We are located in the El Vergel area of Cuenca, a barrio that is close to hospitals, parks, shopping centers, El Centro (the historic district) and two of the four rivers in town. It is considered to be one of the most desirable places to live in Cuenca.

Cuenca sits in a geographic depression, with the city in the center surrounded by mountains. Our home is in one of the only flat parts of town, which makes it great for walking and running at altitude. You can head out the door and hit one of the river greenways within 3 minutes. Just about anything you might need is within walking distance.
Getting around
Taxis and buses are plentiful around town and easy to pick up from our house -- walk less than a block and you can find one with no trouble. Buses are currently 25 cents per ride and taxis are about $2-$3 to get you anywhere in town.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Mariscal Lamar International Airport: 3.5 km
The nearest airport and bus terminal is about 3.5 kilometers from our home. We are half a lock from the Tomebamba River directly across from Pumapungo Inca Ruins and Gardens. When you make a reservation with us you will receive specific directions to our home. We will also suggest the best way to get here for us to receive you when you arrive in Cuenca. If driving your own car we will give you more information on our private parking.
