Condo/Apartment
We have reconstructed a traditional rural adobe home in downtown Cuenca. Four large studio apartments surround a garden and interior cobblestone courtyard. This listing describes ‘Llama’, located on the second floor corridor, to the left at the head of the stairs in the lead FlipKey/Trip Adviser photo. Its twin, called 'Guanaco', is next door to the right. Pumamaqui Accommodations offers serenity and security, with the city just outside your door. Three features make Pumamaqui Accommodations extraordinary: A beautifully reconstituted adobe building with all new amenities; a quiet central courtyard that feels like an oasis in the bustle of the city; and proximity to all that the two Cuencas--historic and modern--have to offer. Rentals include broadband WiFi, cable TV, iron and ironing...We have reconstructed a traditional rural adobe home in downtown Cuenca.

The owners are Stuart White, an ex-academic from the United States and alpaca rancher in Ecuador for 30 years, and his wife Patricia Espadero, a veterinarian and a Cuencana. We are eager for guests to have a memorable experience, and we will be available to help with suggestions about outings, local restaurants and cultural events. More

Stuarts property is a hidden gem in el centro. A short walk to a variety of shopping, dining, and interesting sites to see. Should you decide to take a day and kick back "at home" for a little respite, the apartments are very comfortable and...More

About the neighbourhood
From Pumamaqui Accommodations' location on Honorato Vazquez street, visitors can walk for miles along Cuenca's linear parks, which follow the course of its four rivers. Close-by large city parks, including Parque de la Madre and Parque el Paraiso, are actively used by local residents and visitors for exercise, relaxation and picnics. The main city plaza, Parque Calderón, is 5 blocks away. Leaving from the Parque Calderón are double-decker buses that tour the downtown and stop at Turi Hill, giving a bird's-eye view of the city. Other attractions of our neighborhood include a great many quality restuarants, among them Moliendo Café (Colombian), HR-Hermanos de la Ruta (Spanish tapas), Bella Cuba, El Mediterráneo and La Viña (Italian), and Los Tiestos and El Monasterio (Ecuadorian and inter...
