We have reconstructed a traditional rural adobe home in downtown Cuenca. Four large studio apartments surround a garden and interior cobblestone courtyard.

Its twin, called 'Llama' is next door, at the top of the stairs and to the left. Pumamaqui Accommodations offers serenity and security, with the city just outside your door.

The owners are Stuart White, an ex-academic from the United States and alpaca rancher in Ecuador for 30 years, and his wife Patricia Espadero, a veterinarian and a Cuencana. We are eager for guests to have a memorable experience, and we will be available to help with suggestions about outings, local restaurants and cultural events. More

Excellent accommodations in the heart of "restaurant row". The owners are hospitable and very accommodating. The Courtyard and abundance of beautiful flowers makes it the quintessential Cuenca experience! Would return in a heartbeat!

While the apt is excellent, as is the location, it is your host, Stuart, that makes this as close to perfect as you can get! His follow-up before and during your arrival makes you feel like he's taking care of a old friend. I cannot...More

This property is located exactly where we wanted to be in Old Town Cuenca. Short 5 minute walk (or less) from the river, about 10 minutes from the "Centro." Safe streets, friendly people, plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. The property was absolutely beautiful! We...More

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 (Ecuadorian and inter...
