The Top Portal for Cuenca Real Estate

Cuenca, with its cobblestone streets and stately mansions, has become one of the world´s top retirement destinations. The city, Ecuador´s third largest, is home to approximately 350,000 citizens, and an estimated 4,000 expats. It is an extremely walkable city, and expats often gather near the Parque Abdon Calderon for coffee or drinks. The city is flush with both modern conveniences including 18 hospitals, and with 4 major universities attracting students from all over the world, it is often referred to as the Athens of the Andes.

Cuenca´s temperatures range from 50-75 degrees Fahrenheit, and is often hailed as the city of eternal spring. For those who love the outdoors, Cajas National Park offers incredible year round hiking. Most expats live extremely well on $2000 a month.

If you are seeking a rich cultural life with international symphonies and ballets and a mix of the historic and the modern, come see what makes Cuenca such a special place to retire.

Does buying a house mean buying a home? No, not always. Because there are things that make a house a home. And not every house has them. For us, having a yard and outdoor space is a really big part of what makes a house a home. A place to stick your toes in grass. To watch your grandchildren run around, to play catch with your kids. That’s a home. It’s family. It’s space. It’s comfort. And that’s what we felt like when we walked into this home. From the moment we entered thru the gate, we fell in love with the wrap around yard. With how large it was (4,100 square feet of land), with the large terraces on it. With an outdoor barbecue area. We just loved it. Then, we continued to be pleasantly surprised when we opened the door and saw how large, open and yet homey this house is. One thing that makes the inside of a house feel like a home are wood floors. And this home has them throughout. And it also has a beautiful, really beautiful, wooden staircase that immediately caught our eye. We also loved how open the rooms are in this home. There are so many great spaces it’s hard to focus on one. The formal living room, the formal dining room, the large TV area, and on and on. There is something for everyone here. Places were your entire family can feel like they have a spot just to themselves. Of course, that’s what you would expect in a 3,200 square foot home! One with 4 bedrooms AND a maid’s quarters! On three different levels. Before we forget, this home also sits in a fabulous location. It’s near the new El Batan shopping center, tucked away on a very quiet and safe street. Now, with all that said, one of the best things about this home for its new owner is the price! Even though this home was assessed at $300,000, it is listed at only $249,000 right now! Call us today to see how wonderful a HOME can be in Cuenca.

Look, you came here to Ecuador to get away from the stress of life and all you did was rent another apartment in the city! How’s that helping? You want to get away from stress? Then move to Ecuador’s beautiful countryside and see how simple and stress-free life can really be! Sound good? Great, because we have just the place for you! This lovely 4-bedroom, 3- bathroom country house has just come on the market. It’s in Uzhpud, which is a few kilometers closer to Cuenca than Paute. So, it’s close, but far enough away to let you know you’ve escaped the madness! It’s fully furnished, so all you’ll have to do is decide which drawer is for your socks and which drawer is for your t-shirts. Okay, maybe a little more than that, but you get the picture! This beautiful brick home sits on a 1,000 square foot lot and has amazing countryside views. It’s been built in the rustic style but has all the features and comfort that North American renters are looking for. Outside you have grass. Real grass. Stick your toes in it. Feel it. Feel how close you are to nature! Then go relax in one of the wonderful hammocks that are hanging on the terrace. Take in a deep breath and smell that wonderful food you have cooking in that outdoor barbecue/kitchen area. Wow, that’s so peaceful. Now, let yourself inside to see how beautiful the woodwork is, how perfect the combination of brick, adobe tile, and wood beams work together. Enjoy the rustic feel, because it makes you know you’re connected now. To nature. To peace. To relaxation. Finally, go pick out one of the two first-floor Master bedrooms for yourself. And take the best nap you’ve had in a long time. You deserve it. You chose the right home for you for this part of your life. And all of this can be yours for $780 a month all inclusive.
