“Stellar retreat in a gorgeous area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

I stayed here for 7 days this past February for a solo trip after a deployment. I was looking for something to decompress, get away from everything and clean up my mind and body. Wendy and Garth made me feel at home in their dream of a house and provided a wonderful experience and experience with raw food and Ashtanga yoga. I was at first a little nervous and had no idea what to expect when I arrived, but I kept an open mind and fully embraced the experience. The uneasiness of payment method and having to taxi 3 hours into the "jungle" faded away fast. From the moment Martin picked me up at my hotel and drove me through the Andes to Casa Verde, I knew I was in good hands. The hiking in the local area was beautiful, Wendy and Garth provided amazing meals, and I feel as though I could reach back to them for advice and recipes now and in the future. The yoga sessions each morning were amazing to experience outside on the wooden elevated deck overlooking the forest. We visited Los Bancos, the city in a cloud, Tulipe, a historic cobblestone ruins and the local Mariposario. I left with a clean body and mind and with a renewed energy for everything. My transition hotel La Casa Joaquin was also an amazing place to stay before and after my time with Wendy and Garth.

Thank you so much. We are so happy you enjoyed your retreat here in the Cloud Forest and your time in Ecuador. You were a lovely guest and it was a pleasure to teach you about Ashtanga Yoga. I will finally be able to get you some of those photos we took! :) Best wishes on teaching yoga now and in the future. To your total well being , Wendy

I stayed at Casa Verde in the beautiful Mindo cloud forest this past February. This was just what I needed to recharge my batteries. Wendy Green provided an amazing experience with wonderful homemade raw food crafted from fresh fruits and vegetables. Yoga sessions each morning were expertly guided with care to accommodate my level of experience. My room had large windows that looked onto a backdrop of a vibrant rain forest and just a few steps away from the house, there is a breathtaking waterfall. Everywhere you looked, there was wondrous flora and fauna. A visit to a local butterfly farm completed the experience. I cannot say enough about the attentive care from both Wendy and Garth that ensured that my stay was memorable.

Thank you so much! You were our first guest in Ecuador (after 8 years in Honduras) and we couldn't of had a nicer Person. You inspired me every day with your gracious determination. And it has been a pleasure to know you have continued a healthier lifestyle and continued to stay in touch even after all these months. To your total wellbeing, Wendy
