We dine in grand style at Shell and Marsha's new beachfront home...

Shell and Marsha have just about completed their showplace, new home overlooking the ocean.  We were lucky enough to be invited for dinner and conversation last night, and we all felt fortunate to have such a beautiful, sunny and clear day to enjoy the oceanview and the sunset.

Their new home will undoubtedly be featured in a bunch of articles and magazines describing life on the Pacific Coast of Ecuador.  They have taken advantage of the ocean view and the mild weather here at the Equator to build a home perfect for outdoor living and entertaining.  In addition, to a state of the art interior kitchen, they have annexed a wonderful bar and bar-b-que area which allows guests to marvel at the ocean view, while Shell bar-b-ques delicious meat goodies which will be added to the wonderful side dishes created by Marsha inside.

The home features outside dining for enjoying the fabulous view, but also has interior formal dining where acordian sliding glass doors offer the choice of protection from the elements or swing all the way open to invite in the view and salt air.

Here we are standing on the fourth level...just right for weddings and huge parties--with a knock your socks off view.

And...you better believe that Shell cooked our Fillet Mignon just perfectly--a perfect meal on a perfect evening...

They found a Peruvian artist to render original artwork for the living room alcoves, and murals for their four ocean-view apartments right upstairs.   That's right...some lucky folks are going to be able to enjoy these same views while renting one of the four apartments featuring the same views that you see in these photos...

We thank Shell and Marsha for their hospitality and good vibes--it was a great welcome home!

I have enjoyed your blog so much over the past several months! I started out with researching Ecuador for a vacation with my family and found myself facinated with the country as a possible retirement destination. Your blog is the best marketing tool Ecuador has! LOL! Does Shell and Marsha have a blog also? Looking forward to seeing photos of their new place and the possible rental opportunities there. Please keep up the writings and photos. Your positive vibe and kind spirit comes through in your posts and is refreshing reading back here in the states!
