Season 68, Episode 4

Secret Santa Elena

Living a busy, work-dominated life in Silicon Valley finally caught up to Mark and his wife Nelly, and they've decided to leave California behind to raise their daughter in a more relaxed environment. Nelly is from Peru, but it's the Santa Elena Province in neighboring Ecuador where she and her husband have set their sights, as they agree it's the kind of place they want to raise their daughter. But while Nelly is hoping to live in a gated community to make their daughter's transition easier, Mark relishes his privacy and would prefer a stand-alone home. Find out which sensibility prevails when House Hunters International visits Santa Elena, Ecuador.
