We received a very warm welcome by our wonderful hostesses in their absolutely beautiful and quiet colonial home not far from the Rio Tomebamba. This lovely home is very well appointed and beautifully decorated and is only a few scenic walking blocks from all the amenities of Old Town Cuenca. The queen bed in our spacious room was very comfortable and the large picture window had wonderful views of the lovely back garden and beyond. Our en suite was equipped with a shower AND bathtub (not always easy to find!). Every morning we were greeted with a delicious home cooked meal complete with fresh fruit and excellent coffee. Our two welcoming hostesses were a wealth of information and they gladly shared all of their experiences and knowledge of life in Cuenca. In fact, I don’t know what we would have done without them! We spent 6 wonderful nights with them and would certainly stay again in a heartbeat. Staying in this gorgeous home and surrounding gardens is a must!
