Beautiful and peaceful! We just got home from our week at Juaha Pacha and we miss it already.
Condo was very large and clean with a big equipped kitchen. Grounds were beautiful and safe for walking. We slept like babies and loved waking to the crows of distant roosters. View of mountains out both front and back were lovely. Would visit again!
I am very glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back anytime.
Beautiful condo and views, but could be better
The condo itself is really beautiful, large and modern, and the views of the mountains are stunning. We arrived to a nice vase of flowers, some bottled water and coffee/coffeemaker, which was lovely. The neighbors in the complex were very friendly and helpful if we needed anything. The area is also beautiful; we spent some time in town (the Jora Festival parade was fantastic!), at the lake, went to Ibarra, Otavalo Market, and even made a day trip to Colombia.
However, we did encounter several challenges during our 11-day stay (some of which admittedly come with staying in a developing country):
-Directions to the property were not provided so we had to email from the road to get them
-We were given 18 poorly-labeled keys, which made it difficult to get in and out of the complex/condo
-The internet went down several times an hour, and sometimes for hours at a time
-The power went out three times
-The shower was either scalding or freezing
-The kitchen was missing some basics (fire extinguisher, wine opener, scissors, clean dish sponge, dish soap, etc.)
-There were no directions for laundry and how to get in (spent 15 minutes trying keys)
Overall, we had high expectations, but were a bit disappointed in the experience.
Dear anonymous, sorry about your issues. We have been working hard to get these things fixed. What I have done to eliminate the above things are to bring a lovely couple that will live onsite and manage the condos. They will be there to meet and greet our guest. If there is any issues they will take care of them hopefully before your arrival and if they occur during your stay they will ensure they are handled quickly and appropriately. I believe this will resolve all issues.
clean & Quiet
If you're looking for privacy this is perfect.
Yes, it's a mile from town, sitting on the Andes mountain overlooking the Ciry of Cotacachi. Your right there is privacy and a spectacular view. Thank you for your comment.
Lovely secluded place just outside Cotacachi
I love staying at these vacation rentals as it give me the choice of having a kitchen so I can have a relaxing morning with coffee and breakfast.
This place was in a complex that still has a few units for sale - some people were renting full time from owners and some were owners living on the property.
The space was very large - there were four of us and we each had a large bedroom. The road to the complex was a bit of a challenge to drive to - we had rented a car as we wanted to explore this area - Cotacachi, Otovalo, Chichimbiro and Ibarra.
My husband and I had the larger suite which had a Jacuzzi tub - unfortunalely the maintenance has not been kept us as every day there was a leak in the master bath and I was not sure about using this tub which was one of the features I was looking forward to when I selected this property.
The living area had a beautiful desk which was a wonderful place to do internet and the connection was excellent. There was a patio on the front which was a wonderful place to have morning coffee or tea, or just to sit and read a good book. The owner had placed a few interesting books that were of great interests to us and were able to read them as we were there a week. The living room had very comfortable couches and chairs. There was a fireplace in the living room and in the master bedroom, but we had a difficult time in finding out how to get wood, paper and small pieces of wood to get a fire started.
The kitchen had a lot of counter space but was not fully equipped as advertised. The skillet was designed for 2 people and there was only one. There was a coffee pot but no tea pot for those who like tea in the morning or even afternoon tea time.
The owner uses a local lady who was very helpful in acknowledging the problems and also was glad to show us some other properties in the area - Yolanda with the local Remax.
I would definitely stay in this place as long as the maintenance was maintained.
Thank you Bartha for your review. The Jacuzzi that had a leak has been repaired . Also additional cookware has been purchased. I am glad you enjoy your stay and hope you will visit us again soon.
Beautiful property, but could use a few tweaks,
There were no tools for the fireplace, we bought some tongs and left them there.
Could use more info on walks and directions to the laundry.
All in all though, a great stay, and neighbours that made us very welcome and tried to persuade us to buy a condo
I am glad you enjoyed your vacation. I will immediately put the laundry location in the three ring binder. Also I will replace the fireplace tools.
Thank you so much for your input.
What a bargain for luxury
We were blown away with the condo. It was unclear how to get there but we figured it out and were greeted with huge rooms and vases of roses. The whole place was lovely and very secure. It seemed like the entire complex were expat retirees so it was very quiet and our neighbors were extreme nice. It was great to have room for our young children to run around. We loved Cotacachi and the surrounding areas. It was easy to drive to from Quito and we hope to come back again someday. We'll definitely stay here again!
I am so glad you loved your stay in our Condo. Your welcome back anytime.
There is tons of things to see in the Catacachi area. Hot mineral baths, waterfalls, lakes, hiking, indigenous markets for shopping. Cotacachi is notorious for there leather products. La Mirage is the place to go for a day retreat, full of fun and relaxation. Massages are wonderful there. My favorite message is the eucalyptus message.
