Condos in Ecuador offer a great option for the occasional resident who
only wants to vacation in this beautiful country, or for the individual
or family that has decided to make Ecuador their new home.
“Primavera II Condominiums” is a very special downtown Ecuador condominium development that has been fully occupied for several years.
Thirty-two units in four buildings, with lots of green space and garden areas, yet only five minutes from banks, grocery stores, and shops, make this an urban delight. The development is completely walled and gated with some of the most beautiful gardens in Cotacachi. The residents have also created an organic vegetable garden that all share, not to mention some ancient avocado trees that offer their fruits to the residents.
Built by an indigenous builder, Jorge Quilumbaqui, the first building in this style, known as Primavera I, sold out several years ago in less than a month. All but one of the buyers were from North America.
Primavera II, consisting of four condominium buildings, sold out shortly after it was constructed. Beautiful resale condos are occasionally available, and several owner offer their condos for rent when they are not in residence. Prices vary between $500 - $700 per month, fully furnished. Check with one of the local real estate agents for availability.
Quilumbaqui was the builder
Michel Duer and Jorge
Espinosa to construct their magnificent 10,000 sq. ft. home here in
and Jorge are the creators and owners of La
Mirage, a world-reknown 5-star Relais
Châteaux hotel retreat in Cotacachi.
Following that effort, he also built them two fine shops on leather
street, their beach home near Esmeraldas on the coast, and parts of La Mirage
itself. To be
endorsed by these two master hoteliers is the
highest complement a builder could have.
Jorge has also constructed Jardenes de Pichavi, a very private enclave of 7 townhouses and two adobe casitas near Primavera II. Entrance is from Diez de Agosto near San Francisco square and park. A gate opens onto a paved path enclosed on both sides by adobe walls.
The path winds down a slight incline to the two-story townhouses that surround their own large private garden and leads further down stone steps to the two casitas. Some of these units are also rented. They are quite popular, due to close proximity to Cotacachi central.
