- Ecuador Beachfront Property - began quite unexpectedly.

Way back back in the year 2005, two young graduate students, Tom and Lynn Saunders, became enamored with Ecuador,

first during a visit to the Galapagos Islands




and then in 2006 while doing water quality research in the Ecuadorian highlands.

During this second visit, we decided to take a week to explore the coast and were quickly taken by the tranquility, the laid-back lifestyle, and the tasty seafood.

At that time, we were both in graduate school completing our doctorates at the University of Florida.  After a brief flirtation with a formal academic career, some water quality-related work with non-profit organizations in Ecuador's rainforests, and many adventures while rescuing our sailboat from the cold grips of Chicago...

We landed back on the coast of Ecuador having taken a leap of faith that we would find the means to make a quality life for ourselves here.

Ecuador Beachfront Real Estate


Tom has now been a licensed real estate broker in Ecuador for many years.  In addition to real estate, we also began a construction arm to our business and custom-built multiple beachfront homes.  See our testimonials to learn more.


Construction Ecuador


We eventually designed, financed and built our first multi-unit development, Ensenada del Pacifico, in the beautiful beach town of San Clemente.
