Ecuador Vacation Rentals

Ecuador vacation rentals might be the accommodation choice for you, if you’re looking for the comforts of home during your trip. There are many benefits in choosing rentals over hotels, including the use of a kitchen, more living space, and additional amenities such as laundry facilities. Groups might find that choosing Ecuador house rentals over hotels is cheaper than booking individual hotel rooms. However, independent travelers or couples might want to fully investigate accommodation in Ecuador as cheap hotels and hostels are very affordable. If both are the same price, than choosing between them is simply a matter of taste.

Throughout the country, vacation rentals are waiting to welcome you home. From Cuenca Ecuador rentals to apartments in the capital city of Quito, to beach rentals, there are many options to choose between. While Ecuador vacation rentals are more popular with visitors who are planning a lengthy stay (of a couple weeks or more), it is still possible to find rentals for short term periods of time as well. When considering Ecuador house rentals, it is important to do your research. Beware of any rentals where the price is too low, as the quality may be poor. In Quito for example, a simple but satisfactory apartment will cost anywhere from $300 to $600 per month.

Potential renters should also beware of internet scams. Find your rental on reputable web sites, preferably ones that have an insurance policy against these types of scams, and if at all possible, speak with the person you will be renting from over the phone. Never pay in full up front—a balance should be enough to hold the rental for you. When looking for vacation rentals in Cuenca or elsewhere, if you have a gut feeling that something isn’t right, walk away and find another option. One of the best ways to find rentals is when you have already arrived in Ecuador. If you’re planning on staying for a while, spend your first couple of days in a hotel and look for an apartment after arrival.

Some travelers choose Ecuador vacation rentals because they are often in an authentically local neighborhood. If you’re looking for an immersion into local culture, nothing will get you there quite as quickly as living in a local neighborhood. As you interact with shopkeepers and restaurant owners you will get to know the area better than if you were staying at a hotel. Another instance where Ecuador house rentals pay off is at the beach. Beach rentals are superior to hotels for their extra living space, the convenience of a kitchen, and general relaxed atmosphere. Your own private rental will help you to unwind during your Ecuador beach vacation.

Before you go and book Cuenca Ecuador rentals, do your research about the price of hotels. Accommodation prices in Ecuador are so reasonable, that you might find an even better deal at a hotel. While budget hotel rooms cost around $25 a night, there are nice hotels, with breakfast included, for anywhere from $50 to $75 a night. This is great value. Hotels also offer the chance to interact with fellow travelers and the hotel staff. Valuable recommendations are often gained by asking questions to the hotel employees. No matter which direction you choose for accommodation, you are sure to be pleased at the reasonable prices still on offer in Ecuador.
