We always dreamed of owning a beachfront property and opening a guesthouse, after years of traveling to destinations around the world we decided on Ecuador. We surfed through numerous websites and found www.EcuadorBeachFrontProperty.com , printed out listings and returned to Ecuador to explore and determine if the properties were truly as beautiful as portrayed on the internet. Much to our delight – they were very nice!
We contacted Tom Saunders as our real estate agent and scheduled several showings, after contemplating our budget and reviewing prices on existing homes plus renovation costs we decided to buy a parcel of land and build with Tom. This was our first build and Tom graciously accommodated our requests, we handed over a rough sketch of our dream home and Tom took it from there employing an architect to complete blue prints and site design. Tom introduced us to our attorney: Vicente Ruperto Palma Garcia, who coordinated the necessary legal work for purchasing the property and ensuring a clear title/survey and permits to build. Tom communicated with us via Skype and email keeping us informed of the progress that was being made on our property while we were wrapping things up in the states.
Tom’s wife Lynn was very helpful in recommending accommodations, drivers and day trips during the numerous visits that we made while the work was in progress. Tom and Lynn Saunders have exceeded our expectations!
The guesthouse is open and we are very happy with our new lifestyle. We highly recommend www.ecuadorbeachfrontproperty.com in fact, friends of ours have recently invested in a condominium project that the Saunders family is building. Thank you Tom and Lynn, it has been a pleasure doing business with you and developing our friendship along the way – Saludos!
Please share our information with potential clients, we’ll be glad to answer their questions and accommodate them at our guesthouse when they visit Ecuador!
