How is this for an Ecuador “on – the – beach” front yard?
Would you like this type of sunset view on Ecuador ’s coast from your front room?
Would a one minute amble, if this were your local Ecuador beach property restaurant, do good for your heart…and soul?
What if the food came fresh from these fishermen who set out to sea?
to bring back seafood like these shrimp so large that two make a meal…for just a dollar?
Is this close enough to the beach? Remember that tides and high waves diminish as they grow closer to the equator and this beach is on the equator…in Ecuador . There are no hurricanes on the equator and much less worry about coastal erosion.
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you’ll want to attend one of our 2009 Ecuador Coastal real estate tours. All of these pictures were taken from Palmazul Spa in San Clemente, the central departure point of our Ecuador Coastal Property Tours.
Merri and I have scoured Ecuador for 13 years and have driven its coast, top to bottom, again and again. We have taken thousands of people on real estate tours here. We finally settled in the high Andes …but have not forgotten the beautiful Pacific. We have a house in the mountains and our apartment here in the sea.
Our apartment is top floor, left side, here at Palmazul Spa.
The Spa is also the clubhouse for the Vistazul condos. Merri and I purchased some of these condos as well. Immense value in my opinion. Here is a picture taken from Palmazul Spa at one of our real estate tours. Delegates are visiting the first Vistazul condos as they were being finished.
These are 1,200 square feet, two bedroom, two bathroom condos selling at $84,000 including clubhouse membership for tour delegates.
Here is one of our groups taking a closer look. These are just one of many properties we’ll view on our tours.
We’ll see some more of the Ecuador beach real estate our previous tours have seen in a moment.
The builder, Kjetil Haugan is a Norwegian who moved to Ecuador after being the administrator of Atlanta’s Olympic Village. He has become a prominent businessman, owning the largest Spanish school in the country along with several Galapagos cruise ships.
Kjetil and Jessica have taken good care of our groups many times and we have always been pleased.
The owners of the houses here will enjoy the spa as their community center…all the spa facilities will be available to home owners. Nice…living in a spa on a beach, Palmazul. Tennis court, pool, beach, fine dining, exercise room and all.
Here is a shot taken from one of the Vistazul condo rooftops.
and a picture taken from the top of the condos at sunset. Imagine this view!
We look at all types of property for sale in this area.
We cram in as many properties as we can without neglecting time for fun. Many of us hit the surf in front of Palmazul each morn. Here I am. Come on in. The water is warm!
We also take walks on the empty San Clemente beach.
or a dip in the pool.
What specific properties will we see? I do not know. We research the tour just before we start, inspecting land and buildings that are for sale at that moment so we can maximize the efficiency of your trip. Our goal will be to find a cross section of property…land like this lot we saw on a previous tour.
In the end you enjoy are three days of travel with like minded souls led by experienced travelers and real estate buyers (Merri, me and/or trained staff), who know the area…who can provide you with all the important reliable contacts you need…attorneys…property inspectors…architects and brokers who can work with you…in English.
I cannot guarantee you will find a property you will love. Even if you do, I’ll probably try to talk you out of rushing in. What I can guarantee is a savings of time…trouble and many miles and many properties to see on wonderful surf and sand.
