Off grid, 2 bed, 1 bath solar powered cottage in Mindo countryside, close to all tourist activities, yet secluded enough for privacy, relaxation & an uninterrupted, cloud forest experience. The cottage is rented in its entirety & not per bedroom. A larger vacation country house & owners are located on the property as well. Shoes are not permitted inside the cottage. Due to Covid-19, the pool is emptied, cleaned and re-filled every Monday-Wednesday, and is available at the end of each week.

Eignin
We are nestled in the mountainous countryside of the Mindo-Nambillo cloud forest, at a 30 minute walk past the town of Mindo (1.5 miles or 2.4 km), and just a 10 minute walk to 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 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 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 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 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 movies (in English and Spanish), plus 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 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 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).

The owner and/or caretaker lived 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!

Staðsetning

Mindo, Pichincha, Ekvador

Because La Lomita is located in the countryside, up a mountain slope, it's not a typical neighborhood, per se. We are surrounded by forest on all 4 sides, with no visible dwellings around us. The closest house (which also functions off of solar panels) is located at a 2-3 minute walk down the dirt road and across the stream, and is passed by before arriving to our property. Farther down the hill, at about a 3-4 minute walk are other haciendas, with the main dirt road that follows the Mindo River at a 5 minute walk down the hill. We are just 10 minutes walking distance from the Butterfly Farm and the starting place for Tubing in the Mindo River.

Likewise, we are as present or invisible as you wish. We live on the property ourselves, in a smaller house over the hill from the country cottage offered here. Rest assured that you're not alone on the property and that we are there to assist you in anything you might need during your stay ;-)
