Otavalo Villa Rental Photos and Description

Special Discounts for long stays, ask for details!

4Volcanoes Lodge is a stylish, one-of-a kind, custom-built home with amazing 7,596 sqft of living space within two acres of flower gardens with swings, a little soccer field and a two story tree house. The villa is perfect for families, romantic luxury breaks and retreats. The setting and scenery of the villa are spectacular: Sitting on six acres private land and in a green valley of the dramatic Andes mountains, right at beautiful lake San Pablo, this is the only private villa in South America recommended by Conde Nast Johansens luxury guidebook.

Relax in the unique, open concept home with stylish (yet child friendly) interior design. Enjoy your private super size outdoor hot tub or the ample living room with comfy couch and spectacular view over the valley. The adobe and stone build villa is an ideal getaway for families with children, gatherings, outdoor enthusiasts, or those who are looking for a quiet place to write, paint or learn Spanish. The Lodge is an ecological place with a biodynamic plant and bee sanctuary. We use only organic cleaning supplies and natural materials.

The area is a must see: Vivid indigenous culture, 350 days of sun, amazing nature for outdoor activities, authentic rural villages for crafts/ antique shopping. 90min to Quito airport. Your home away from home is nestled into corn fields and surrounded by a professionally landscaped garden, with walkable labyrinth and lots of room for your children. There are amazing views from every corner of the house.

Upstairs Master Bedroom has windows to three sides, King size bed, fireplace, desk, sitting area, direct access to the outdoor hot tub in the patio, rainfall-shower AND family size bathtub, as has the second bedroom on the main floor with Queen size bed, desk and sitting area. Across the hall from the master bedroom is the library/TV-room which can be turned into an extra bedroom with two sofa beds for children. The lower level of the villa has two more cozy bedrooms with desks and sitting areas, two bathrooms with showers, the laundry room and a giant games room with lots of toys for children of all ages.

There is bilingual staff available for cleaning, cooking, child care and whatever else you might need, but we will always respect your privacy. We – the german owners family – live in our own house next to the gate and will be happy to assist during your stay – just as much as you like. Your house is standing free in a two acre landscaped perennial garden with a big outdoor playground, labyrinth, organic horticulture, BBQ area, and a toy room with entrance from the garden. Furthermore and attached at the back of the garden, we have 4 acres pasture land, where we run a small Equine Therapy Program with 8 horses and the bee sanctuary.

Please email us with your ideas of a perfect vacation and we will help you to make it happen: from absolute privacy and self catering, up to a luxury service deal with full time chef and english speaking guide and chauffeur. Contact us for a pre-trip information package with FAQ list, itinerary ideas, special offers, maps and more!

We are a family from Germany and live permanently in Ecuador since 2002.

With our own Lodge and the Equine therapy facility next door we live our dream close to nature, with cultural experiences and of course sunshine all year round! Our three boys are born in this wonderful country and homeschooled - we truly love our way of life here. As former buisness consultants and managers of the award winning Hacienda Zuleta hotel, we know the hospitality industry quite well - take advantage of our contacts and insights!

We also spend our time teaching at the university, coaching alternative schools, learning about shamanism, and volunteering at a local orphanage. We are happy to share, and looking forward to meeting you!

Thomas Ring purchased this villa in 2009

San Pablo is an authentic village in a quiet rural setting, only 50 miles from the capital Quito and with endless activities within 1 hour driving around the house. The climate is perfect - Sunshine on 350 days of the year!

The area is perfect for outdoor activities, shopping, there are restaurants close by and the cultural experience offered is amazing.

A perfect day: get up with the first rays of sun and hike up the Imbabura volcano. Come back, have a late breakfast on the terrace. Watch the horses in training. Later a trip to Otavalo, some crafts shopping, visit a cultural event or just watch the people at the plaza. Grab some fruit at the market and head for early dinner towards the lake, for a beautiful dining experience with sunset view at the shore. When home, the hot tub is boiling and you can count the stars of both hemisperes. Tomorrow you can do a trail ride and have tea time at a colonial hacienda. And change your flights - stay a week longer!

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property for three nights and it exceeded our expectations! The property itself is exactly as portrayed in the photographs and, if anything, is more beautiful in person. Thomas and Christina were wonderful hosts and our 8 year old son loved playing with their boys! We especially loved the hike with Leo and Luca to the secret waterfall! We loved sitting out on the patio, taking in the beautiful views of the lake and Imbabura volcano. The hot tub in the evening was so relaxing and everything in the home was extremely comfortable. We loved our stay here and will definitely be back!

Life In Slow Motion

  • 5 of 5
4Volcanoes Lodge is a magical place. The house itself lends to total relaxation. What we wanted was an escape from the daily grind and we got it all here. Lots of reading. Lots of exploring. Lots of relaxing. A true place where you can turn it off. Thomas & Christina are excellent hosts with as much or as little interaction as wanted. The views are magnificent, the aura is natural and the trip, a memory to last a lifetime. Thank you for such a great place to stay while exploring the Ecuadorian Andes. P.S. We´ll be back with the kids!! -Nate & Alli"

the most beautiful relaxing spot

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for four nights with our two children ( 10 and 13) and from the moment we entered the gated property we knew we had found a gem. Our warm welcome from Thomas and Christina and their wonderful animals was exactly what we needed after a long journey. The cook made us dinner for our arrival and lit the fires and it truly felt like heaven! We truly did not want to leave the property but when we did the charming town of san Pablo is a 5 minute walk and here you can experience the culture, right outside your door. we did not rent a car and never felt that we needed one, the taxis are great and very cheap and buses run from right outside the house. Thomas was very kind too and offered us a ride if he was heading into town and knew we were thinking of going too. The owners had just rescued a three week old baby horse and our children had the experience of bottle feeding her and learning about horses which was something they will never forget.The house was incredibly comfortable and beautifully furnished and every possible amenity is there. the grounds are spectacular and the photos cannot even do it justice. I truly recommend staying here, you will be so glad that you did and we plan to return one day, hopefully soon and stay for even longer.

Family of four DREAM vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We have traveled all over the world - with kids and without - and I can absolutely say this was one of our BEST rentals ever. It will be hard to top 4 Volcanos Lodge!!! We stayed here for a month with our two small kids - 1.5 and almost 3 years old - and loved every moment. From the evening we arrived, the home, staff, and service was top-notch. We stayed pretty busy our entire trip, but loved having such an incredible "home base" to come back to. Juanita, the housekeeper, was wonderful and very attentive. She kept the house tidy and looked after our kids several times. Thomas and Christina were available anytime to answer questions or take care of anything we needed. The property itself is flawless. Beautiful outdoor spaces, beautiful views, and one amazing house. The beds were comfy, master bath HUGE, Lots of natural light, hot tub, fireplaces, and tons of space for the kids to run around. The house is naturally baby-proofed, which was great. And the basement full of toys was more than we could have asked for! 4 Volcanos includes a lot of items for kids that you won't need to bring with you - car seats, cribs, high chair, books, toys, and plenty of loving animals to play with outside. (Our daughter still talks about the animals!) The area - San Pablo De Lago - was a great location to stay. Just a quick drive to Otavalo, but near the beautiful lake and volcanos. Everything was right outside the gate! We used a rental car for the month and loved having the flexibility. The local roads are in good condition and easy to navigate. The weather was ideal - like springtime every single day! We were in Ecuador for four weeks and still wished for more time. It was difficult to leave this wonderful home (and wonderful people) and we hope to be back someday soon!

Exceeded our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
We have rented many wonderful homes around the world but none have met the standard of 4volcanoes. The home is even more beautiful than the pictures depict on the website. The location is ideal- within the village yet a private oasis containing the most spectacular gardens- all with a view of the surrounding volcanoes. Our hosts have thought of everything to ensure a comfortable stay - including a jar of their delicious homemade honey! We cannot say enough about this spectacular home and give it the highest recommendation!

Beautiful location, great villa

  • 5 of 5
Truly stunning views. Beautiful one-of-a-kind villa. We stayed here for 9 nights. 3 kids (ages 11, 3, and 1) and 4 adults. The kids loved the play room (and the adults loved the break from the kids!). We'd like to thank you all ... Thomas and Christina for all the help, Juanita for watching the kids and keeping the house clean, Washington for driving us all around and being great with the kids, the owner's three friendly boys (kept my 3 yr old boy entertained), and even the friendly pets!
Tons to do/see in the area, or just relax on the wonderful property!

We named the Villa 4Volcanoes Lodge due to its unique setting. Located at 2.600m in the northern Andes of Ecuador and within a 5 minute walk from the main plaza of the rural village of San Pablo del Lago, we are surrounded by 4 majestic peaks of (extinct) volcanoes: Imbabura, Cusin, snowcapped Cotacachi and the Mojanda rim.

Its just a 1,5 hour drive from Quito international airport, and yet another world. Indigenous walk their cows and sheep to the grazing field every morning. The land is worked the old fashioned way and fresh mountain air clears your senses.

We have renowned hotels with an excellent restaurant offer within a 10 minute drive and some of Ecuador´s major tourist attractions such as famous Otavalo market or Cuicocha crater lagoon are just 30 minutes away.
