Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Playas - Casa Rustica
2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Apartment Close To The Beach
Our property is conveniently located close to the beach and to downtown area.
Your home is a 2nd floor above the ground floor fully furnished apartment with two rooms and two baths that can comfortably accommodate up to 5 persons.
The house was entirely designed to have a comfortable, relaxed, stress free and very enjoyable atmosphere. Thanks to its construction materials (hardwood and bamboo,) the apartment remains cool even in very sunny day (you will find cement only in the bathroom).
The housekeeper will take care of your clothes cleaning and drying needs every Saturday. Light cleaning will be provided once a week by the house personnel.
Come visit or stay for long in UNESCOs (1982) declared 2nd best climate in the world: Playas (General Villamil).
Playas is just an hour and 10 minute drive from the main city of Guayaquil and from Salinas, a fishing and marina port.
When you come to Playas, you will have fun enjoying the sea breeze, relaxing in an uncrowded, light, fine-sand beach, ordering seafood and lunch meals that are conveniently low in price, going for a boat ride to the near Puna island, where you will, on the way there, find and see many marine and bird life, or going for a walk at the central park (during the day or at night).
At night and on weekends, during high season, the downtown and beach area becomes very active. High season is between January and March.
If you are more of a surf addict, there are many nearby places where you can ride the waves: one of them is el Pelado.
Other amenities of the house include a nice 32 inch led tv, cable tv, blu-ray and blray movies, two internet providers (cat 5 and wireless), kitchen, two balconies, and you are welcome to use the patio and ground floor to entertain guests.
You can enjoy barbecues on the patio and can get together with friends at night as well on the ground floor. There is a large yard in-front of the house suitable for gatherings with a pine and orange tree nearby. The nights are great, with clear nights most of the time, and the climate magnificent (average 77 farenheit) all year round. During the day you can enjoy plenty of sun at the house patio, or if it is too much sun, you can find shade from the nearby trees, bamboo, and cade shades strategically located around the patio and yard.
In case you need smaller accommodations, we can probably set them up for you. Just let us know what you need, and we will do our best to find a suitable and comfortable place for you and your party to stay.

About Frank Alache
Hi, I am Frank and am an University professor that enjoys outdoor activities as well as nice climate and a peaceful live. It has been a long family tradition to spend the weekend and beach season in Playas, and we constantly followed it through. This is how I, from my childhood years, came to appreciate and get to know Playas better, and later decided to build a home here. At the same time, I have a concern for nature and the environment, which is the reason why I had the apartment constructed with as minimum cement as possible -only bathrooms have it. By gaining access and using local natural resources (hard bamboo from Quevedo and hardwoods from Esmeraldas), I was able to have this three story house constructed from local and environment friendly resources.
Frank Alache purchased this apartment in 2010
Why Frank Alache chose Playas
Playas is one of the most peaceful and most untouched beach areas that can be found along the Ecuadorian coastal front. You can really escape here from the stress. Its people are very accommodating and love the simple things of life: family is at the top, life enjoyment through outside gathering of family and friends is encouraged and practiced, and its people rarely engage in any form of violence or confrontations.
What makes this apartment unique
What makes this property unique is the construction materials: hardwood and bamboo. Due to this, the apartment stays cool and fresh year long, and the wood texture and color will certainly put you in a relax mood and help you unwind.
