Overview

About the property

Condo is on 11th Floor across from Yacht Club

Two Degrees South has the entire 11th floor directly across from the yacht club. The condo has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large living room, large kitchen & very large deck. An optional 3rd bedroom with full bathroom and laundry room is also available. May be combined with adjacent apartment to accommodate total of 10 people. See HomeAway Listing NUMBER 3492213

In our opinion this is the finest location on the Malecon (beachfront road). We are at the center of all beachfront activities. Whether you want to rent a watercraft, go fishing, whale watching, or just enjoy the beach, we have it all. We are situated on a large shallow bay, but twelve miles from shore the water is 20,000 feet deep. Ernest Hemingway once said Salinas has the best fishing in the world. Within a few minutes walk you can select from many good restaurants. Across the road the water is warm and the waves are gentle, so your children can play in the water while you watch from your rented beach chair and umbrella. You can purchase ice cream, sandwiches, coconuts, or a bottle of beer from beach vendors that cater to your every need.

Why Genine Franklin or Paula Franklin chose Salinas

The infrastructure in Ecuador is being upgraded especially the major roads. The beaches in Salinas are clean and the climate is warm but not so much in the Caribbean. Temperature vary from 75-85 and usually come with a nice ocean breeze.

What makes this condo unique

The country is very diverse with sandy beaches and some great surfing in Montanita which is north of Salinas. The uniqueness of the Andes with there spectacular views and the rain forests. 18,000 foot high mountains with snow or cloud forests make this small country possibly the most diverse in the world.

Beautiful huge condo with beach view.

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful very large open floor plan condo, with 3bedroom, 4 bath.

The layout of the kitchen, living space and balcony is comfortable and spacious.

The view of the bay, beach and activities was on top of the world. Restaurants, water

and beach activities right out side the door. There is a grocery store close,

and a farmer's market in walking distance. The vendors on the playa are polite and

there to make it easy to relax under an umbrella, play, swim, eat, and enjoy the day.

Out of this world

  • 4 of 5

The condo was amazing. The balcony was the best. The location was just right. The night life was a little noisy for us elderly gringos. My spiritual Brother who manages the condo was as a brother should be. Took care of all our needs. The stay was fantastic. I would recommend it. Thank you. Jay Ungard

What do you say about perfect

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent January/February at this condo, including a week visit by my daughter and fiance. The owners were wonderful to work with and Jaime, the young man who manages the apartment, was an amazing resource for anything you needed and became a friend during our stay. Parking was available and secure, but a car is not needed -taxi's and shuttles were abundant and very inexpensive - not to mention driving is quite an adventure. We hired drivers for trips to Cuenca, Inca ruins, Guayaquil, Montanita (a must side trip) and a other side trips. The drivers (arranged by Jaime) turned out to not only be wonderful folks, but terrific tour guides and just very fun to hang out with.

The condo is spacious, immaculately maintained, secure and could not have been a better location - Right on the Malecon, on the beach and even next door to a Texas BBQ for those days we were feeling a little homesick. The balcony is an amazing part of the experience. It is enormous and the views are spectacular. Very appropriate for kids of all ages. Other than there being a lot of places in this world we have not yet visited, this would be a perfect location for a winter trip each year.

Wonderful stay in Salinas

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week in Paul's apartment, and we were thrilled with everything. The apartment is spacious and clean, and the view is spectacular from the balcony. I found both Paul and Jaime, the property manager, to be wonderful to deal with -- quick to respond with good information. Jaime was also extremely responsive to our needs once we arrived. It's great to have that kind of service available.

The only thing that I would note that is not for everybody is that it is right in the middle of the Malecon and that it can be noisy at night. This was not something that bothered me or my family at all, but if you feel that you need absolute silence, another place may be a better fit. I found that I was able to relax very well, in the hammock on the balcony, even with the noise going on around me. And, this happened really only on the weekend. It was barely noticeable during the week.

I would recommend this apartment many times over, and I look forward to returning.

RELAXATION AT ITS BEST

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 months in this Condo and enjoyed every moment of it, the unit was SPECTACULAR, very clean and easy to keep that way. It is in the heart of the beach area of Salinas, just a short walk or bus ride to the stores, mall or restaurants. Spent many a morning just looking at the activity on the beach. The views from the balcony or any window in the unit were spectacular. Paul and Jaime were wonderful, very helpful and informative and easy to get along with. Can't wait to go back.
