Cuenca, Azuay Province
We have reconstructed a traditional rural adobe home in downtown Cuenca. Four large studio apartments surround a garden and interior cobblestone courtyard. This listing describes ‘Guanaco’, located on the second floor corridor, to the right in the lead FlipKey/Trip Adviser photo. 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.
Three features make Pumamaqui Accommodations extraordinary: A beautifully reconstituted adobe building with all new amenities; a 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, washer and dryer, garden with hu...

These beautiful casitas evoke colonial style and are located on a block of many restaurants--in fact, you can eat almost any cuisine you can imagine, Peruvian, Colombian, Thai, Pakistan and others. I would certainly recommend it to anyone. The host family are sweet and fun, too. So go. Cuenca is like no other place, and these casitas are perfect.

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 thank Stuart and his lovely wife, Patricia, enough. I had almost 15 hours in travel...

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...
