Staying at Stuart White's accommodations was more than a clean, highly functioning and comfortable stay. It was a living experience par excellence. We stayed in two of the four high quality units, each with all the conveniences and a well-equipped kitchen. The location is ideal for walking to the center of town - Plaza del Calderon - and down to the river, the walking paths, Parque de la Madre, mercados and beyond. My husband is an artist -landscapes and townscapes - and found Cuenca ideal. We stayed for 7 weeks and felt each time we turned the key to the beautifully cared for courtyard that we were home. Each time new visitors came to stay we felt the family had expanded - whether we conversed or not. We like our privacy and yet, found ourselves enjoying the exchanges with fellow travelers. The undercurrent to the whole experience was Stu (and his family) who is one of the most genuine, generous and fascinating individuals we have ever had the pleasure to encounter. When my husband and I were reviewing the highlights of our 4 and a half month time in Ecuador, then Peru, he said, and I concurred, hands down - the top of the list was Stuart White. Stay here and you will have the opportunity to be enlightened in many ways.

We stayed for 30 days in three different apartments due to our late reservation. We enjoyed every unit as well as the beautiful green courtyard. The location in the historic district was perfect for us. All the appointments were very clean, functional, and high quality. What enhanced our stay was the kindness and cordiality of Stuart White the owner/manager. He made certain that everyone was welcomed, introduced to other visitors, and well informed of their surroundings. Being a scientist he has a great amount of knowledge to share from his 35 years of environmental and habitat experience in the Azuay Province. We hope to return soon.
