average rating of 4.9 based on 10 reviews

Highly recommend !

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. We had 12 people and we all fit comfortably ! So many rooms, so much space, beautiful pool, and the maid is marvelous! Any issues they come and fix and the owners are very accommodating. This house really deserves this rating, it's not given lightly. The community is safe and beautiful.

Gorgeous Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here during our July trip to visit family in the area. With 5 bedrooms this beautiful home had more than enough room to accommodate us all. Like another reviewer said, the pictures online (as awesome as they looked) did not do justice to this amazing home! The house is located in a private gated community. Some of the things located in the community included convenience stores, a pharmacy, restaurants (N Burger was one of our favorite places), a bakery, & a park. All of these places were within a 5 minute walk from the house. The home itself is spacious with a large kitchen, dining area, family & living room. There are plenty of comfortable couches, chairs, stools, & hammocks everywhere so there’s always a place to sit or lounge in. The bedrooms (and everywhere in the house) are beautifully decorated. Ecuador is very hot & humid so the air conditioner units in each bedroom were great to have. They cooled the rooms down quickly & provided a nice reprieve from the heat! One of the best parts of this house is the AMAZING pool in the backyard! It was so nice to be able to come back to our home base in Ecuador & take a dip in the relaxing pool. Since it was so hot there the pool water was always perfect, no matter what time of day. Finally, the owner, Amada, was wonderful to work with. She is one of the nicest & most genuine people you will ever meet. She called us daily to check in on us to see if we needed anything – whether it be help with arranging for taxis to go somewhere, amenities needed for the house, or if we wanted Sonja (her cook/housekeeper extraordinaire) to prepare any meals for us. You can tell that a lot of thought & care went into every aspect of the house & making sure it was perfect for us. Amada loved her home & wanted to make sure we loved it as well. As a matter of fact, if you ask Amada about anything in the home (whether it be the history behind the house or where she got her salt & pepper shakers that were in the form of cute little chickens!) she will tell you about it – it almost always has a personal story behind it. That’s what made our stay even more special, the personal touch behind everything. I could go on and on about the wonderful things about Amada & this amazing home but you really just need to book a stay and find out for yourself! I would HIGHLY recommend it! Thanks Amada for EVERYTHING! Hopefully we'll be able to come back soon & when we do we know where we're staying! =)

Simply Marvelous!

  • 5 of 5

The host was superb! She explained in detail all the aspect of the home and was extremely kind. The house was fabulous, the decorations and design was amazing and plenty of space. It was even better than we imagined. The bedrooms were very nice and with their own air conditioner. The kitchen has everything you need if you want to cook your own meals. The pool was clean and the kids never wanted to leave. You'll love the beautiful flowers decorating the yard. It is in a very nice neighborhood. I fully recommend this home for a long or short stay in Guayaquil! Muchisimas Gracias!!!

Amazing don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this home. Absolutely beautiful home,very clean,lovely gardens and in a gated community with everything you need.

Amada is a truly wonderful lady who loves her home. We were greeted by fresh flowers in our bedrooms as well as living and dining room. Wonderful coffee from the Ecuadorian mountains and some great meals. We enjoyed everything this home had to offer. The pool and garden areas are just delightful as well as the two resident turtles.

Amada made us feel so at home and I feel like I have made new friends with her and her daughter. Ecuador is an amazing country with a rich culture and wonderful people. This home is a great place to relax and enjoy or as a home base to venture and sight see. I would stay here again and look no further for a place than here at Casa Cecila. The house is so unique and beautiful,well cared for, in a safe area with great owners. Thanks so much,Amada and Cecila for everything. We have only been home 32 hours and miss you and Casa Cecila already.

Amazing vacations

  • 4 of 5

When I first arrived I thought the house was just beautiful. Not only that but it was located in a safe neighborhood! The owner was extremely helpful in answering all my questions and for letting my Family and I stay an extra week because our flight got cancelled. We especially loved the pool, as it was well maintained. The kitcken was well prepared and organized and we had easy access to all the materials. Also if there was to be a problem, the housekeepers were instantly there to help. Overall we had a terrific vacation and I have the owner to thank for that. I recomend!
