Like living in your own park, nicely landscaped, colorful gardens. Sits in a geophysical bowl. 4.2-acre/1.7 hectare people and bird sanctuary 20 minutes from the biggest and best scenic ocean beach in Ecuador. Nice river access across the street, 50 meters from front gate, accessible for dipping.  Very safe area.  Double thick foundation, well constructed.

Dirt road to be paved this year, the gov’t says. The property is 3 km off the principal highway 10 km north of Canoa. Close enough to…but far enough away from… the beach town of Canoa, 20 minutes.  Home is 35 minutes from Bahia de Caraquez.  .

Furnished and implemented: almost all furniture, appliances, lighting, tools, lawn mowers, garden and kitchen equipment/implements  included. Most art included.

Custom made laurel wood BR furniture, some bamboo in den and entry parlor, other furniture in LR and upper patio made from on site samango trees. Fire circle with log seating.

Lots of fruit trees and vines. 50 mature mango, 50 mature cacao for making your own chocolate, 20 lime/lemon, 20 moringa (superfood). Loaded w maracuya (passion fruit) vines. Also some orange, grapefruit, noni, coffee, cherry, gauva, jackfruit, orange, mandarin, bananas/oritos, plantain, naranjilla… Producing rubber tree. Almond tree just started producing last year.

4 bedrooms two 3/4 baths plus outdoor solar shower. 3 levels with big crows nest BR on top. Media room w double recliner and projector. LR, Den, tool room/pantry. Small outdoor structure and under stairs bodegas, plus 2 small pumphouses.

Dimensions clarification: Square meters is 194 plus 74 additional in L shaped patio. Square feet is 2093 plus 795 additional on patio. The covered wraparound keeps home cool in warmer months. Note that close to half of the square footage is not screened in. Interior rooms other than LR and third floor crows nest BR do have screened windows/glass;. Ventilation space at top of first level maximizes air flow and comfort so no mold or mildew problems.

There is a crop with extremely high profit that you might consider for the approximately 1/2 hectare unused space here: Balsa growing, Demand for it is high. 75% of the worlds balsa supply comes from Ecuador. Half a hectare can net you $12,000 per year for the four year growing cycle or you can keep in ground longer.  Very little maintenance required after the first year.
