About the property

2,5 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, sleeps 6

This miniature farm has everything for a relaxing stay. The little house is very well designed and equipped with all modern appliances. But the best is the pool area with a huge, 30m2 indoor swimming pool temperate by solar panels (it'll warms up according to the sun) with separate jacuzzi, a Sauna, Steam bath and great volcano views.

You will also be able to cook in a brick oven fired by wood all kinds of food like bread, pizza, beef, etc.

On the 2 acre property you can also spend time with all kinds of farm animals, including two curious sheep who peak through the windows!, two adorable goats fooling around the property. Get fresh eggs for breakfast, milk the cow (only while the cow is feeding her calf), harvest vegetables of the season or just watch the kids play with all the outdoor toys. There are 24/7 caretakers on the property (spanish speaking!) who will help if needed.

  • 4 of 5

We spent our new Christmas vacation in this wonderful place, comfortable and full of great activities for children and adults.

We made some pizza in the old style oven and had a great time in the pool with my children.

The house is very well kept and the manager does and excellent work.

Stop thinking about it.. just get there as soon as possible and you see by your own eyes..

Fun in Otavalo

  • 5 of 5

We live in the Oriente of Ecuador and have been to the Otavalo area many times. My wife found this lovely home to stay in on our last trip. We had a great time and loved the property. The owner was very easy to work with and made our trip a breeze. The caretakers were very gracious and brought us fresh eggs and milk from the "farm" on the property. They also arranged a horseback trip for our family which was a highlight. The house is perfect for a family and very comfortable with several TVs and DVD players. The fully furnished kitchen made meals easy and quick. The caretaker came in each night to start a fire in the fireplace for us and the kids loved that. The hot tub was great after a long day of sightseeing, we used it every night. We only wished that the pool had been heated by more than just the "solar panel" system, as it didn't take the chill off at all.

We have and will continue to recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place in the Otavalo area.

Great house in a magical location

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed for two weeks and we really enjoyed our time here. We were meet by the owner, Maria and her son when we flew into Quito and they took us to their country home in San Pablo. We felt safe at all times and the house was very homely and clean. The roses were amazing.

Our 4 year old grandson had a ball as there was lots for him to do. When he wasn't playing with the caretakers two sons or on the soccer field, slide or swing he loved being with all the animals. Cows, horse, hens and chickens, lambs, rabbits, cats and dogs, they have them all.

We found the location perfect for the many day trips we made. We did not have transport so relied on local taxi's and buses. They were great. Maria is a great host and spent a day showing us round so we got to learn about the local attractions. She took us to Cotacachi village where they make amazing leather goods.

With the help of Marco, the caretaker, we visited many local attractions. San Pablo Lake was only a 20 minute walk away where we also enjoyed a meal. We also went to the Guayabamba Zoo, the Condor Park, Otavalo Markets more than once, Hacienda Cusin and a local waterfall. We also enjoyed many walks in and around San Pablo village and a day hiking to Ibarra.

There's a great variety of food in the village nearby the house and the house kitchen has everything you need to cook for yourself. We had Norma, the caretakers wife prepare us a traditional meal and it was a highlight of our trip. We totally recommend getting Norma to prepare a meal for you. She also does exquisite needle work too that you can purchase.

The caretakers, Marco and Norma were really friendly and helpful and made our stay all the more memorable. Marco willingly accompanied us on our day trips and made sure we paid fair prices for everyting we purchased.

This is a great house, located in a magical place surrounded by all those mountains/volcano's. We unreservedly recommend this property.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the perfect getaway with your couple or your family this is the place to go. Surrounded by mountains and with San Pablo Lake minutes away this beautiful house has everything to offer for a enjoyable vacation.

The house is comfortable and really cozy, well maintained. The inside pool and jacuzzi with the awesome view of the mountains is espectacular. Moreover, the green areas surrounding the house as well as the little farm they have on the outside of the house give the house an extra rural touch that I'm pretty sure your kids will love it.

Furthermore, there are several outdoor attractions close to the house that you definitely will enjoy, like horsebackriding through beautiful sceneries, you can also go to San Pablo Lake and try some wakeboarding if you are the adventurer kind of guy like me. There's amazing food in the towns nearby the house ( if you do not want to cook yourself, even though with the kitchen this place has you can easily do it), I totally recommend trying fried pork and corn, is just unique.

The people that take care of the house were really friendly and they helped us a lot.

Finally I will like to thanks the owners for having such a wonderful house, located in such magical place. I totally recommend this venue.

Thanks for everything, I'll be back soon

Un lugar Magico...

Estuvimos en esta linda cabaña durante 4 días y nos pareció que realmente le hace honor a su nombre... "El Descanso", nos desconectamos de todo y entramos en contacto con la magia del lugar, el paisaje es bellísimo no tiene comparación, los animales de la granja la máxima diversión para nuestro hijo de 6 años, las persona que cuidan el lugar muy amables y estuvieron colaborándonos en todos nuestros caprichos, recomendado 100% no tengo queja de nada, a sus dueños felicitaciones por este lindo lugar y muy seguramente los contactaremos de nuevo repetir este mágico paseo...Mil y Mil gracias...!!!...Diana desde Colombia
