About Carlene Chapman

Born and raised in Seattle, Washington 'the bluest skies you've ever seen' are truly beautiful, just not enough months of them! Now retired and living in Salinas, Ecuador we enjoy the ocean breezes and the warm, sunny weather.

Carlene Chapman purchased this condo in 2010

Why Carlene Chapman chose Punta Blanca

Spondylus 2 is oceanfront and located in a residential area with 24 hour on-site security and a great walking beach steps from the condo. You are only a 10-15 minute taxi or bus ride from the hustle & bustle of downtown Salinas and all the shops and restaurants.

Best sunny weather months are during high-season Dec-May with temps in the 80's and June through Nov are typically warm and enjoyable month's in the 70's.

What makes this condo unique

A turn-key unit maintained and cared for by the owner, our condo is clean, comfortable and well-appointed for your stay. All you will need to buy are your groceries and fresh seafood and fruits & vegetables. Wake up and go to sleep with the sound of the waves drifting through the windows.

Great views and good location

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed a month during off season and found this apartment an excellent fit for us. We wanted to be on the beach with good internet and away from the Malecon. It was awesome to be able to watch the waves and people body surfing, snorkeling, kayaking and more while sitting in the condo. We could walk directly onto the beach from the condo building. During the week it was quiet. On weekends and holidays there are more people who enjoy the swimming pools and barbecue area, so then it is noisier. We walked to El Paseo Mall or took a taxi to and from the Mall. Just outside of the mall we caught local buses. We went to La Libertad and bought fresh fish at the fish market and fresh chicken at the Mercado. We walked along their Malecon. We took a local bus from the mall to Anconcita, a small fishing village. Or, a person can catch a bus to Salinas. The owners had a basket full of goodies and were responsive to our questions and needs. We definitely would stay here again and we will recommend it to our friends.

Wonderful hosts, beautiful views, perfect condo

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed a month at Spondylus 2 and enjoyed it so much. The owners were such great hosts with all the helpful info needed to make our transition to Ecuador life a success. The condo is compact, with all the amenities needed, including a basket of goodies to get you started like coffee and cookies, and milk and water in the frig. There is an elevator in the building and an exercise room. No cable TV but there are a stack of DVDs of mostly current movies, or plug in your computer to it with the hdmi cable provided. Don't let the dirt roads to the condo off the main road in Salinas deter you as all side roads are dirt. Taxis called by the guards will get you to the shopping mall, grocery store (5-8 mins) or to the Malecon in 10-12 mins, for only $2-$4. We walked to the El Paseo mall for exercise and it took only 15 mins. (We are both over 60) We were there in the off season so it was quiet most of the time, but we heard that when full of people on holiday it can get noisy. (But being on the Malecon is noisy all the time!). The location is great because you can walk straight on to a smooth, clean beach right from the pool area - almost like a private beach. We loved our stay, and the hosts too!

Great value

Perfect location away from the noise of the malecon, but a quick (and cheap taxi ride). Close to mall also. Unit has everything needed and is well appointed. Lots of charm in a small space.
