A beautiful upscale condo located on the third floor of Building #1 with wonderful views of Mt. Imbabura from both the living room window and the sun terrace windows. Just steps from the heart of Cotacachi. No car needed – you can walk to all the banks, restaurants, markets and the retail leather shops that Cotacachi is famous for.
Featuring an upscale kitchen with top-of-the-line cook-top and stainless steel range hood. Custom built upper and lower cabinets with formed counter tops. Built-in oven and microwave, double-door stainless steel refrigerator and a center island. Also a 42 inch flat screen TV with NETFLIX and a great library of movies. Also included – High speed internet and local landline telephone.
This 1,271 sqft condo is fully furnished including all linens, towels, dishes, silverware, microwave, coffee pot – everything you need – just bring your personal items and settle in. There is a Queen sized bed in the master bedroom with en-suite bath and a full-sized bed in the second bedroom.
The security is great – this condo is one of 32 total condos in this complex. The complex is gated and locked. Furthermore, the building doors are locked all the time and alarmed at night. This unit is very safe and peaceful – however, you might just be awakened by crowing roosters (yes right in town) or barking dogs or church bells.
The gardens surrounding the buildings are maintained by a professional gardener and are simply stunning. There are flowering bushes all year around. One of the real amenities of this unit is the Sun Terrace. The terrace is totally enclosed with glass windows for weather control – yet you have wonderful views of the surrounding town and Mt. Imbabura. This is a great place to have that cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening to just relax and knock back.
Moreover, the climate cannot be beat. We are located only a few miles from the equator, however at an altitude of 7,800 feet – we have spring-like temperatures all the time. Many days it is sunny and bright with blue skies and you find yourself walking on the shady side of the street. Other days are overcast – but still mild. Temperatures during the day average about 75 degrees and at night it dips into the fifties – needing a sweater or light jacket. When it rains – it is usually at night – sometimes in the afternoon for twenty or thirty minutes just to clear the air. Being so close to the equator, we have twelve hours of day, twelve hours of night and never have to worry about daylight savings time.
The common currency is the American Dollar – no problems with currency exchange. Actually, the dollar bill is kind of scarce here – we have all the dollar coins from the states. Ecuador also mints their own coins – in the same denominations as U.S. coins and they are exchanged freely.
Everything is nearby – you can walk everywhere to the restaurants, banks and shops. You don’t need a car. If you need a taxi – they are only a dollar to drive anywhere in Cotacachi. Bus fares are reasonable also – if you want to go to Otavalo (site of South America’s largest open air market) the fare is only 25 cents for a five or six mile trip – to Ibarra and its shopping malls – it is only 45 cents for about a 20 mile trip.
