The home is lovely and well-equipped

We were comfortable in the home and welcomed in the community. We had a wonderful time and plan to return.

We loved our time in Cotacachi

Christine has done a great job providing every amenity in her (we think of it as ours now) house in San Miguel. San Miguel is a gated community with sparkling white adobe homes, terracotta tile roofs, gorgeous landscaping, and only a ten minute walk to the town center. "Our" rental home for the holidays was freshly cleaned before we arrived, property manager was very helpful and available. The two large bedrooms with baths are located at opposite ends of the house, providing privacy for two couples, or parents and children .We had a fire in the fireplace every night in the cozy living room! Having a washer and dryer was a plus for our almost four week stay. Cotacachi is a wonderful town to use as your base to explore the Imbambura area of the Andes. The Indigenous markets, mineral springs, surrounding villages, rose farms, lakes, and historical plantations will fill your days! Our driver, Julio Moreno, was the best!! enjoy your stay at Christine's house in San Miguel.....

Beautiful home

What a lovely home and situated in a picturesque community. The views of the two volcanos was surreal! The weather was perfect, hot hot sun and cool breezes... and cool at night. Everything we needed in the house and more! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

Perfect home in Ecuador

Like it says this is your home away from home in Ecuador. I have stayed here twice and both times it exceeded my expectations. The house is in a lovely gated community , a short walk from town. It is furnished beautifully and has a very well equipped kitchen. The house manager is prompt and very helpful. I would recommend it highly. Sidney W
