ECUADOR/PACIFIC COAST –  For Sale By OwnerQuinta Oasis In Ecuador is a unique property conveniently located on the coastal highway about 7 minutes south of Puerto Lopez and 30 minutes north of Montañita with Manta and Guayaquil, two of Ecuador’s largest cities with airports, within driving distance.

For less than a four-bedroom home in the USA, imagine owning a slice of paradise shared between friends to live or retire in Ecuador because of its quality of life and natural beauty.

The property comes fully furnished (except for the owner’s artwork and personal items), in move-in condition. Each home maintains its privacy while the social areas are ready for community gathering. There is enough open land to build additional small homes or tiny houses for residents or for rental income.

Amenities include full kitchens, open space floorplans, balconies with views, outdoor bar, BBQ and kitchen, pool and open-air community room, laundry and caretaker’s apartment. The second floor of the main building is unfinished leaving it to new owners to design and decorate to their tastes. This apartment offers a large balcony with ocean and mountain views for entertaining, open living space and enough room for two bedrooms.

The land is 3,800 sq meters (41,000 sq ft or almost an acre) in three terraces. The lower terrace is the caretaker cottage, gardens and landscaping that is buildable. The second terrace is for the three houses and the main road. The upper terrace holds a building with three mini-suites, pool, public bath, open air kitchen, bar and grill and the main unfinished building with a penthouse apartment, suite apartment and laundry room. The land is encircled by high solid brick designed walls complementing the other brick structures.

The quinta lends itself to an intentional community with private houses and shared public spaces.

The quinta might also be used as a retreat center, a family compound, a private residence, A hotel, a co-housing/working community or further development as vacation homes. Even a work/life space for digital nomads.

Over the past 3 years, the owner has transformed the property from wild land to an inviting and tranquil retreat with all utilities (water, electric, internet), its own transformer and security. Created as a space for the owners, who are psychologists and spiritual guides, to host their clients, the quinta has not reached its full income producing potential. It’s time for someone with energy, passion and a sense of community to fulfil the vision of this sacred space.
