About (Ms.) Sigrid Tidmore

Hi, I'm Sigrid, and I've been the property manager at Delfin Villas for the last two years. I live here and manage the vacation rental program - so when you come here, you know you can always find someone to answer your questions.

My son, Sean, is the designer/developer of this community. He and his lovely wife, Dahiana, and my two grandchildren Mila & Liam also live here in the community. From here my kids run their organic farm and manage Ecuador Expats Realty, as well as their other development enterprises.

We are all committed and involved in the village of Puerto Cayo, this beautiful, tranquil community in which we live. The local people are wonderful and will greet you with a smile and a sense of congeniality that leaves you feeling like you truly belong.

(Ms.) Sigrid Tidmore purchased this villa in 2015

Why (Ms.) Sigrid Tidmore chose Puerto Cayo

Delfin Villas represents a high-end, relaxing, secure and comfortable option on the coast of Ecuador amidst a town of only 1,500 where everyone knows each other. Puerto Cayo is surrounded by national park and cloud forest area presenting a fantastic location that is in near-immediate proximity to essential services.

Villa 03 has been furnished with high-end appliances, furniture and kitchenware as well as heated water and all rooms feature AC. You will have all the comforts you wish at an unbeatable price and experience. Visit at the right time and you can watch the whales pass by off your balcony.

What makes this villa unique

Puerto Cayo is uniquely situated in close proximity (20 min or less) to some of the biggest tourist destinations on the Ecuadorean coast. At the same time, it maintains a relaxed island-like atmosphere that is casual and doesn't leave you feeling like you landed into party town. You can watch the whales migrate off the balcony here and if you feel like fancy dining or big city tours, it's a quick drive away. No problem if you don't have a car, we can arrange a personal driver we can help arrange or there is an excellent bus system. Enjoy it, you have locals here to help you.


- Whales migrate right off the beach, watch them jump!

- Small town so no clubs, crazy parties or other nonsense

- Shrimp and lobster can be delivered to your door daily

- Original developers live on-site as well as we manage the largest family owned and operated real estate company. We are happy to answer any and all questions you have about tourism and investment locally or elsewhere in Ecuador.

Very good

  • 4 of 5

Description was accurate, was clean and well maintained except for local phone service did not work. They were working on getting it fixed. Yes we would recommend this property but better if you had a rental vehicle to get around. Nothing much to do in the local area. Only concern was being locked in after dark and early morning. Might have trouble getting out in an emergency. Very secure though. A little far from town so not that convenient, only a few little places to shop for groceries. We enjoyed eating at Booby's Bar and Grill in Los Suenos del Mar but was a bit of a challenge getting there and back even though it wasn't far along the beach.

Quiet Comfort

  • 4 of 5

This place is a real treat. In general south America is full of dogs that bark all night and terrible beds. Here however you will find great beds in quiet area, away from town and the night time noise. By far the best sleeps I had in two months of travelling Ecuador. Loved it. The house is large, well designed and nicely furnished. It is a very comfortable space that provides lots of room and privacy for everyone staying there. We are a family of six and found this place worked very well for us. Multiple TV's, lots of balconies and roof top views. last but not least, beautiful bathrooms. Big nice bath tub and shower in the master, with all the other rooms having nice showers and comfortable layout. The property manager Sigrid is a fantastic person who very much wants you to enjoy your stay and is there to help. She has put in a lot of effort to make sure you are comfortable, safe, and have information on the area. I highly recommend this place.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay at Delfin Villas. The house is new, up to date and clean. The manager is very pleasant and a good resource for things you need or want to do. We have two small children and the baby pool at the complex was great. When the tide was down in the morning the beach was nice to play at and my husband was able to practice surfing. Overall we were happy with our stay.

Great location and Safe

  • 3 of 5

The manager and owner were super nice. We were given directions on how to get there. When we arrived the manager Singrad was there to meet us and show us around. We greatly appreciated the bag of coffee and the candles. There were some things that i would encourage them to change. The pic they use to advertise is the home on the beach. So you assume this is the one you are renting. They were kind enough to lower the price for me. It was greatly appreciated. Thank you Sean. Many of the lighting fixtures were not working and had no bulbs in them. There were no sheets on the bed. Just the box spring cover was placed on there as a sheet. The third bed on the roof had no sheets at all. So my daughter slept downstairs on the couch. It looked like things were not quite ready for guests. Besides that, the place was very clean and new. Sean and Singrid were very nice. We enjoyed our stay there very much. Right next to the beach and close to some great things to see. Thank you Sigrid and Sean.
