Cuenca, Azuay Province
We have reconstructed a traditional rural adobe home in downtown Cuenca that we call Pumamaqui Accommodations. Four large studio apartments surround a garden and cobblestone courtyard, with the city just outside your door. The apartment listed here is single-level with its own balcony, and directly overlooks the courtyard. The street-facing side is our new art gallery, PumamaquiGalerías.

Three features make Pumamaqui Accommodations extraordinary: A beautifully reconstituted building with all new amenities; the quiet central courtyard that feels like an oasis in the bustle of the city; and proximity to all that the two Cuencas--historic and modern--have to offer.

Rentals include broadband WiFi, cable TV, iron and ironing board, abundant hot water, hair dryer, complete kitchen (including toaster, microwave, coffee maker, plates, pots...

Stuart and Patricia's place is located right in the heart of the historical district in Cuenca. It is surrounded by great places to eat that offer local food and cater to extranjeros(foreigners). The entire complex offers privacy and is perfect for getting the feel of living in Ecuador. When my wife and I visited, Stuart and Patricia were there at...

This beautiful little flat exceeded my expectations. It is in a beautifully maintained property and the owners are kind, welcoming, and attentive. The unit is really nicely designed and comfortable. The kitchen is clean and modern and the attention to detail (vase of fresh flowers, fruit bowl, cheese and bread etc) was welcome and appreciated. I will definitely stay here...

We stayed here in Oct of 2014 on our first trip to Cuenca. It is a perfect location if you want to be right in the center and within walking distance to cafes, museums, parks and restaurants. The best part of staying here is the owners. They go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and easy. We are...

About the neighbourhood
From Pumamaqui Accommodations' location on Honorato Vazquez street, visitors can walk for miles along Cuenca's linear parks, which follow the course of its four rivers. Close-by large city parks, including Parque de la Madre and Parque el Paraiso, are actively used by local residents and visitors for exercise, relaxation and picnics. The main city plaza, Parque Calderón, is 5 blocks away. Leaving from the Parque Calderón are double-decker buses that tour the downtown and stop at Turi Hill, giving a bird's-eye view of the city.

Other attractions of our neighborhood include a great many quality restuarants, among them Moliendo Café (Colombian), HR-Hermanos de la Ruta (Spanish tapas), Bella Cuba, El Mediterráneo and La Viña (Italian), and Los Tiestos and El Monasterio (Ecuadori...
