The space
I have five apartments listed with airbnb, 2C, 3B, 4A, 5B (these I manage for other owners) and 7A that I own, all these apartments are in the same building. I also live in this building on the 9th floor with the two co-hosts. There is a doorman/concierge. Apartment keys and a building and apartment briefing are provided on arrival (either by me, a co-host or the concierge) and if you have any issues during your stay these will be resolved rapidly.

I am a superhost, the significance of this is that I have never cancelled someone’s booking, and statistically these apartments rate at least 9.6 out of a possible 10. There are more than 640 reviews from previous guests that have stayed in the building, with a 4.9 star rating out of 5. If you look through these reviews, the reviews should answer many of your questions. You can reserve this and other apartments instantly, there is no need to make prior contact. Once you have made a reservation, contact information is provided by airbnb automatically, all you have to do is arrive at the building, no different to reserving a hotel or hostel.

To reserve an apartment on airbnb, you need to have a verified airbnb account. To be verified you need to provide to airbnb a copy or your ID (passport, drivers license or cedula), your cell number and an email. All airbnb reservations are paid for by one of the following Mastercard, Visa or American Express, I do not accept cash payments.

This apartment has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, with big Living room and Balcony. The living room has a large six panel glass window that provides uninterrupted views of the beautiful sunsets over the ocean. This apartment is the size of a small house and is equipped with modern white goods (split AC, Washer Dryer). If you look through the pictures you will see actual pictures of this apartment, and pictures are routinely updated, what you see is what you get. The actual location is provided on the airbnb map, recently two guests gave four stars out of five for location, if you don’t like the location, its simple do not reserve an apartment here, same goes for value, if you’re not going to give a five star rating for value, do not reserve an apartment here!

If you want an apartment in a building with consistent high reviews then reserve an apartment here, if you want a cheap apartment were possibly will have issues, book elsewhere, it’s like the old adage 'You pay for what you get', and one piece of advice, if you book something on airbnb with no reviews, maybe there is a reason, for example, maybe that listing has a bad review or reviews, and the account holder simply starts a new account.

The Apartment has fiber-optic cable internet (NETLIFE 50 Mbps) and its own Netflix account.

The Building has high level of Security and is located in the safest area of Salinas so you can unwind and relax while feeling safe at all times.

Building utilizes swipe discs for elevator and electronic front door access. There is also a Concierge on duty daily, their hours are from 8am to 8pm Sunday to Thursday, 8am to 9pm Friday and 8am to 10pm Saturday and 9am to 8pm Sunday.

Transport - transport from Guayaquil Airport can be arranged in a private vehicle (small sedan more suited to 2-4 people with 4 bags). (taxis in Ecuador are compact so they don't hold a great deal of people nor luggage)
Note: To rent a taxi 'on the spot' from the Airport to Salinas could be as much as $100 or more.
If needed I can also organise a van if you are travelling with 4-6 people or have multiple bags (recently I organised a van for 5 people, 5 carry-on bags and 10 checked-in bags with this costing $150).

Car Parking is more suited to small and medium sized cars. I have four apartment rentals and four dedicated parking positions allocated to me. It is not a matter of just parking where you want. You will be alloctated one car parking position by the building doorman, depending on the size of your vehicle as some parking bays are more accesable than others. Should your car not be able to enter the garage, or be capable of manouvering into the alloctated parking bay, the options are street parking, or parking at the rear of the building in secure parking that costs $5 a night.

Can discuss special rates for long term renters via messages on this website.

Why rent at a hostel for $20 a person or a hotel for $40 a person for a one bedroom hotel room with cold-water or more a night in high season, when you can rent in this luxury apartment, that is the size of a small house with three bedrooms with much more benefits, such as preparing your own meals.

Retired after 24 years in the Australian Defence Force and now Living in Salinas Ecuador for the past 14 years. I live in the Phoenix Building, where these apartments are located, the building is close to everything and is secure. Beach is 70 meters away. Remember this is an apartment building, not a hotel, I don't own the building, other owners live here. However should you need assistance during your stay, usually someone is here to assist you. Know your stay will be excellent. More than 840+ Reviews from previous guests that have stayed in the Phoenix Building in the five apartments listed on airbnb with a rating of 4.9 out of 5. I have two co-hosts, Jay and Jeff, they can both communicate in Spanish/English, they also live here in the Phoenix Building and usually handle check ins (if they are not at University), the Building's doormen can also handle check-ins. At peak occupancy I also have a cleaner that cleans and prepares the apartments and possibly will handle some check ins. Should you have any problems or concerns, with the cleaning or anything, please let me know immediately, and know these will be taken care of promptly.
