Thank you so much for incredible, relaxing and beautiful memories in the Andes! The house was very comfortable, spotless and perfect for the visit we had in mind. We were able to visit and hike the region, while enjoying nice and romantic dinners in the all-glass view on the dining room. Breakfast on the patio was truly magical!! We recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay in the area! Unique and magical. Have fun :) and thank you again.
We stayed in the 'smaller' guest house for an extended stay. It is huge. I have been visiting places in north-west Ecuador and Ecollacta is one of the best in terms of: comfort and space--the rooms, lounge area, balcony are truly spacious and immaculately kept; the owner Kamal gives the place a special touch: he came to the paved road to take us to the property which is up a long private track. His wife prepares incredible food, too. If you are a 'foodie', you will not be disappointed. The hot-water heaters for the showers and sinks were a nice touch. They had two very friendly, loved and well-behaved dogs. The views and tranquility are what I look for in a place, in addition to great birds in the garden, and this place was tops for all three. I highly recommend Ecollacta for its high-level of maintenance (beautifully kept gardens, immaculate house), friendliness of owner (Kamal is smart and helpful), and overall feel of safety and comfort while staying here.
