Crucita Condo Testimonial

We wanted to share a testimonial we received from Bob Faske who purchased a condo in Crucita in November. Here’s what Bob had to say about his experience:

“In October 2009 I was lucky enough to find Tom’s website (www.ecuadorbeachfrontproperty.com). I begged a few days leave from work to see Crucita and Arena,Sol y Mar firsthand in early Nov.

The town is well off the “beaten path” but the continual roadwork up the coast from Manta will change this soon. The town is a small fishing village with a wide sweep of beach, and popular with locals on weekends. My large room at Hostal Velodores was clean, convenient and reasonably priced (didn’t hurt that it was off-season)with free washer,(fitfull)computer access,and a near-empty courtyard pool.

While exploring the condo site next door,I not only met the friendly yet diligent construction crew, busy forming the 6th-floor columns, but was able to meet the owner/engineer Sr. Raphael Andrade, who was most gracious in explaining the floor plan, construction technique,and purchasing process; we spent several hours together in Portoviejo with the notario completing the promesa de compre vende,securing me a phone chip,and admiring Mercedes engineering. He also contacted me later to note a math error that would give me a slightly lower price!

Sr. Carlos Fuentes, the project’s architect is on site daily; Sr. Andrade visits as often as possible (weekly) from his home in Quito–his family will enjoy the top-floor penthouse, a fact that reassures me strongly about the quality of consruction and amenities.

I must commend Sr. Eduardo Iglesias and his wife Paola for their hospitality and knowledge of the area, and thanks to Tom again for long-distance guidance in finding this wonderful spot. I’m looking forward to spending many fine days in Crucita at Arena,Sol Y Mar II!”
