FAQ #23 – What About STUDIO APARTMENTS In Ecuador?

Studio apartments in Ecuador, as well as one-bedroom apartments, are uncommon and difficult to find. Ecuador has a large familial culture so housing is designed with that in mind.

Most houses and apartments have 3 to 5 bedrooms, all containing wall-to-wall beds and furniture. Most families have 2 to 3 children, and it’s common for multiple generations to live under the same roof. This means the demand for larger, multi-bedroom housing is high, while the demand for small studio and one-bedroom apartments is low.

We have not seen a studio apartment since we’ve been in Ecuador, but we have stayed in one and two bedroom AirBnB condos near the beach. For more on this, check out our Property Tours in Ecuador Playlist on our YouTube Channel.
