Об этом жилье

Off grid, 2 bed, 1 bath solar powered cottage in Mindo countryside, close to all tourist activities, yet secluded enough for privacy, relaxation & peace of mind. A larger vacation country house & owners are located on the property as well. Breakfast is offered separately.

Жилье

We are nestled in the mountainous countryside of the Mindo-Nambillo cloud forest, at a leisurely 30 minute walk past the town of Mindo, just 10 minutes before the Butterfly Farm.

Our house is eco-friendly and functions off the electrical grid, using solar panels for energy. It consists of 2 bedrooms, 2 beds, 1 full bath, and sleeps up to 4. We are completely secluded and offer privacy from the bustle and noise in the town of Mindo. A larger house and other small cabins are located on the property as well (one of which we, the owners, live in), making Posada La Lomita an excellent location for larger group gatherings in your own private hacienda. These other cabañas might also possibly be housing other tourists, yet due to the expansiveness of our property, privacy is not an issue, as space is abundant.

In addition to the solar panels for electricity, we also rely on a local waterfall/mountain spring for water. We practice energy conservation, and are conscientious of not utilizing high voltage consuming products, as well as turning off the lights and electrical appliances when not in use. This habit not only emphasizes the importance of energy conservation within all of our cultural visits, it also allows us the opportunity to remind and reinforce resource conservation to our children, fellow guests and future generations.

Our cottage at Posada La Lomita is custom built and constructed entirely of wood. Views are possible in every location throughout, offering a scenery and nature of the Mindo-Nambillo cloud forest that is breathtaking and awe inspiring.

For the family or couple who enjoys nature, and the uncontaminated, pure environment that the Mindo countryside has to offer--and for those who are still looking for the luxury comforts of a home--this is the perfect getaway for some peace and quiet, filled only with the sounds of birds, insects and running water.

Here at Posada La Lomita, we sit on 3 hectares (7.5 acres) of nature filled land, with trees, fields, creeks, birds, armadillos, guatusas, and other abundant wildlife all around us. Outdoor, on-site athletic activities include badminton, soccer, croquet, nature walks, playing/wading in the creek or swimming in our outdoor, natural, chemical free pool!

There is nothing more relaxing, gratifying, and peaceful, then to have your own private haven amidst the birds and animals chirping and moseying outside. You can discreetly watch them through the limitless windows, or from the hammocks of our outdoor lookout! Come enjoy your family meals, relaxing reads, and gatherings with your loved ones in your own private paradise!

We owners are bilingual in English and Spanish and we raise our two children bilingually as well. The house and property are child and eco-friendly, using only non-toxic products, and offering entertainment for children such as games and movies (in English and Spanish), plus badminton, soccer, croquet, and free range chickens to feed and collect eggs from.

The light colored wood construction blends in naturally with the forested mountainous environment, emphasizing the oneness with your surroundings. Our water source comes from natural water spring & waterfall in the mountains above, thus supplying filtered (yet untreated) chemical and pollutant free water for the house.

Though daytime can reach the 80's F, nighttime tends to be cool (down to the 50s or 60's), for which one controls the temperature by simply closing the windows and using extra, supplied blankets if needed.

The kitchen is built with socialization in mind, fostering openness to the dining and living area, thus making mealtime sociable and family friendly events.

The living area is surrounded on 3 sides with floor to ceiling windows and screens, permitting a 270 degree view of the wildlife and forest scenery below. You can enjoy these views in the comfort of your own hammock or super cozy bean bag!

Nighttime at Posada La Lomita resembles a starry sky, except instead of stars, you will notice that they are lightning bugs, illuminating the darkness! Sometimes it's as if you were in your own private galaxy, surrounded by twinkling stars (flashing fireflies) as you walk the property in the dark. Paths are also automatically illuminated with solar lamps that turn on at dusk.

Apart from the basic package, extra available services include a private chef, maid (basic housekeeping is already provided), chauffeur, guide, and babysitter. Please inquire if any of these interest you, as only a basic daily cleaning service is already included (changing the trash and sweeping the floors).

Breakfast is available at an additional cost, and consists of coffee/tea/hot chocolate, fresh juice, bread, eggs (usually free range from our chickens), cheese, fresh fruit, butter and jelly. If another kind of breakfast is desired, we would be more than happy to accommodate (if at all feasible), just please give us a day's notice!

The owners live on the property as well, yet we are at a comfortable, private distance from the house, and are available to assist with any of your needs or arrange them entirely for you. Advance notice is kindly appreciated, however.

As experienced travelers ourselves--and having our own small children--we realize that one's own accommodations and necessities might be unique from the next. We are more than flexible and happy to fulfill your desires; just tell us what it is you require, and we will present you with the best package and offer to ensure you have the most wonderful, at ease, and memorable vacation while here in Mindo and Ecuador!

Nano's place is a gorgeous haven tucked away from the normal everyday world, he has created a mini paradise near Mindo. We especially liked the tranquil mirador with hammocks to lie in whilst humming birds fly about the feeders. Another highlight is the natural pool which seemed very clean and refreshing, with birds and butterflies flying around the flowers and trees nearby. The cottage itself was very clean and comfortable with a serviceable kitchen and sitting room. The cottage is located a few miles away from Mindo centre but there are many taxis to take you the 10 minute journey to and fro for a few dollars, so it is well worth it if you crave peace and quiet in this tropical paradise. Nano himself is very friendly and helpful, always willing to help you out or arrange trips for you. All in all highly recommended if you wish to stay in the cloud forest.

It's called Off the grid, but our review is Off the chart: that GOOD! The cabana is awesome, all the windows have screens, so you hear nature all the time even if you are inside, but when you close the windows it is cozy and warm. Kitchen fully equipped, even good coffee. Beds are good! The surrounding garden is stunning and a feast for birders. The summer house has a view on a small valley, which you can enjoy from a hammock or chair. The hummingbirds visit the feeders all the time. We had a dip in the pool as well. Our stay was too short! We could easily have spent a week here! We just love this place! The owner is very pleasant and accomodating!

Four of us stayed here comfortably and found the cabin to be more beautiful than in the photos. The property is beautiful with several varieties of flowers, trees and birds. The pool area is also gorgeous. We were able to cook a lot in the kitchen because it had a good supply of pans and dishes. The fridge is small but we made it work. The property is definitely outside of the main town, and I suggest having a car for driving in. Having a quiet and peaceful place outside of town was perfect for us. Fernando is very communicative and helps make the stay even better.

Probably the nicest place I've ever stayed. The property is like paradise, the cottage is beautiful and Nano is a kind, gracious, helpful host. My kids enjoyed playing with Nano's daughter and they loved the warm bath. We didn't want to leave!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights, and it just wasn't enough! We loved our experience here. The place is a perfect serene get away. Close enough to town to partake in all of the fun activities Mindo has to offer. The hosts are a wealth of knowledge about the area. We highly recommend this unique place, and hope to come back again someday.

Nano and Marjorie were lovely hosts and they have created a little paradise in Mindo. Our bungalow was beautifully constructed and equipped with everything we could possibly have needed to prepare our own meals. Super comfortable beds and elegant linens! We also throughly enjoyed our time spent in the refreshing pool and lovely gazebo overlooking the cloud forest. Nano and Marjorie thoughtfully arranged a birding tour which we would highly recommend! Can't say enough about this beautiful spot, don't hesitate in making it your home in Mindo!
