  • Otavalo is a wonderful small city to visit. Alberto's place is just a few minutes walk from the local bus terminal and is located close to every place you would want or need to go in the city. The pictures of the place do not do it justice. It is very nicely decorated and feels so much like a home. The beds have plenty of blankets for those chilly nights. The water in the shower is hot. The wi-fi works great. The kitchen is well equipped if you want to prepare your meals in. Alberto himself is genuinely friendly and can help you with information and directions for whatever you may need. He speaks excellent English too. Were I to return to Otavalo, I would definitely stay here again.

  • Alberto has a wonderful place to stay. It is close to Plaza de Ponchos and a lot of other amenities. Alberto was a lot of help on suggestions on what to see and what to do and was also a pleasure to talk too. The room was big and comfortable and had a good size equipped kitchen. Nice seating area with a fireplace. If/when we come back to Otavalo, will come back here for sure. Book it and enjoy Gracias Alberto

  • This is our second visit to Alberto’s place and we continue to enjoy coming here. Alberto is always warm and welcoming and fun to visit with. The beds are warm and comfortable and the rooms clean and quiet. A great location for exploring the Otavalo region.

  • Alberto is very welcoming host and aware of the needs of travelers. He has readily accommodated our special requests and provided excellent advice about where to eat and what to see in the area. His house is beautifully decorated and filled with historic photographs and works of art. The beds are warm and comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and the building is very quiet despite being centrally located just a few blocks from the Otavalo bus station. We would gladly return!

    Clark2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We were thrilled to find Alberto’s place as it was artistic, comfortable, very reasonable and a good location-a couple blocks from the bus terminal. Wonderful experience!

  • Monica was a great host and very helpful. Her place was clean and comfortable, and was within a 5 minute walk of the famous Otavalo market. She helped us arrange a ride to the airport and gave us suggestions about must see places in the area. I would highly recommend to anyone who would like to visit this wonderful part of the world.

    Julie2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is a nice, clean space just outside of central Otavalo. Everything feels new and the layout is great! It should be noted that parking in the garage is an extra $3 per vehicle per night (motorcycle included). Though there is some natural light coming from a partly translucent ceiling in the kitchen, there are no windows to the outside at all in this apartment — which makes for a nice dark room for sleeping. The pair of slippers were a nice touch for added coziness while inside. The wifi is fast, bed is comfortable and the shower is great. Monica is a wonderful host.

    Janelle2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great value, there’s a restaurant downstairs and this was the best shower I had in Ecuador. Perfect for a group or family.

  • Our stay at Monica's place has been fantastic and the best base for exploring Otavalo. The facilities at the apartment are great; a comfy bed, lots of kitchen utensils/equipment, hot water, fast wifi, beautifully finished. I would wholeheartedly recommend staying here. Thank you Monica!

    Charlotte2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is the safest apartment I've stayed in in Ecuador. Great hospitality from both Monica and Guillermo. Parking in their own garage and there's a great restaurant that does a delicious continental breakfast next door. The apartment is lovely, big and has it's own kitchen with skylight. Great place to stay if you're in Otavalo and a nice 20 minute walk to the Otavalo market. Thank you Monica for a fabulous stay!

    Tania2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place was perfect for us! In fact, we stayed here twice on two separate visits. The location is really central, quick walk to the center. Great WiFi, hot water, comfy bed, smart TV! The kitchen had the basics we needed. Check in was easy as the owner lives in the building. For $5 you can do laundry and hang dry upstairs. The host also has drinking water you can purchase in the room. I thought the building was a little noisy in the mornings, but not too bad. The apartment is clean and cozy- it’s a great deal! We’d definitely stay there again if we’re in Otavalo!

  • Great apartment to stay in Otavalo with excellent central location, a few minutes walking from bus terminal. Spacious apartment with comfortable bed, great hot shower and well equipped kitchen. The only negative and a bit unexpected was the extremely poor wifi speed. The overall value of the apartment is great. Hopefully the host can fix the internet problem for future guests.

  • I really enjoyed this place. It was perfect for our needs. I neede a place to stay with my daughter and her infant and it gave us all that we needed. Luis is a great host. He met us and showed us everything and was available easy for any questions. The place is quiet and nice and located very close to the Plaza, which is a priority for us always. It was also very nice to be able to wash our clothes. There is a beautiful view of the mountains on two sides of the loft. I would certainly love to stay here again.

  • Miryan is a wonderful host. She is so kind and neat and she really cared about us during our stay. Also she helped us with all our questions and needs. Her place is also wonderful. Nice and clean with a big beautiful garden and some really cute pets. We would come back any time=)!

    Rene2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Super nice hut in a very nice garden with lots of birds and plants. 10 minutes walk to the center. Warm shower! Donna Miryan is a very kind and helpful host. Perfecto !!!

    Raphael2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed at many Airbnbs over the years and our host Miryan provided a very warm, inviting and an experience beyond our expectations of Otavalo, it's culture, artists and it's people. Truly a life experience we will not forget.

    David2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place to stay with a very comfortable and friendly host.

    Maria Emilia2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • I am extremely happy that I could spend in total 10 days at this magnifient location in Otavalo and get to know Myrian, one of the most hospitel, helpful and "amable" persons. Just a bit above town (20 min walking to the center or 1,25 $ taxi) Myrian offers simple but extremly cozy cabins hidden away from traffic, with a view on Imbabura vulcano. I felt at home from the first moment and extended my stay a couple of times. It is advisable that you like animals though: and then if you do you will be cheered up daily by a goat, cats and two dogs. But the best: Myrian is the best host that will be happy when you as a guest are happy. She will gladly help you out with whatever you need for your stay in Otavalo: may it be timetables of buses, good tips for great trips, laundry or just the daily chat in the morning to imrove your Spanish! Muchas gracias!!!

    Tobias2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Miryan was a great host. She speaks English, so it I was easier for us to communicate with her. She was super nice and suggested some nice places for us to visit. I liked the tomato tea she made and loved her baby goat. Her old stile cabin has enough room for two people to stay and has all amenities we needed. I recommend this place to the other guests.

    Weiying2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • I liked it so much that I stayed a couple extra days.

    Thomas2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • A rustic and private location with a beautiful garden and grounds. The orchids and avocado tress were a definite plus. Miryan was a super host and was extremely helpful. The 15 minute walk to the center of town is downhill, and the return taxi trip is less than $2.00. Highly recommend.

  • Fantastically located, a little out of the way but very idyllic. Otavo is very easy to reach. Again and again.

    Maria2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin is armed separately, that is, there are two separate bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen and to access them you have to go out to the patio. It does not have a roofed living or dining room but an outdoor table. However it is beautiful and has many details of good taste. Inside the rooms it is not cold, but you have nowhere to be if it is cold outside. Frank was very kind and answered all our concerns.

    Sunny, cozy, 3-bedroom cottage on a quiet street beside a stream, big lawn, avocado, lemon, fig and peach trees, song birds. Five minute walk to the poncho market or central park. Full kitchen - cook your own meals if you like or walk 3 blocks or so for diverse restaurants. Unobstructed view of 16000 foot Imbabura volcano. Fiber optic Internet: 5MB up and 5MB down, suitable for videocalls and Netflix (to be honest, during times of high traffic it can be less than that).
    Friendly, helpful neighbors, play area for children, fresh air and tranquility so close to the center of Otavalo help make this an ideal place for nature-lovers, newlyweds, good friends, families and retired persons who want to spend a short or long time in Otavalo. Ideal for extended visits of a month or more. Large driveway for parking your vehicle. Lots of firewood and area suitable for campfires, weiner roasts and barbecues. To be honest, it is not always totally quiet. The neighbors have a sweet dog that barks occasionally, and a half a dozen pigeons sometimes hold meetings on the roof. However, we have never had problems with traffic noise, noisy neighbors or loud music.
    The house is on a quiet street in a residential neighborhood a few blocks from the center of town. There is a huge new fruit, vegetable and food market nearby. A small stream and green valley at the back of the property separate the neighborhood from the center of town. Our fig tree ensures that there's always an abundance of birds.
  • We had a great stay in Otavalo. The place is conveniently located. The outdoor space was great for our pup. We would stay here again :)

  • You can expect a totally satisfying experience that lives up to everything advertised ... and more. It was topped off by the incredible welcoming and assistance by Eugenia and her family! If/when we return, we will definitely stay here and will tell all our friends and family to do the same. A wonderful topping to all our experiences in Otavalo ... an incredible town.

    Vic2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Ralph's place was perfect for my extended stay in Otavalo. He is super responsive and answered all my questions and the apartment is in great location, close to an amazing food market and to the tourist sites of Otavalo. Eugenia lives on the property with her family (which includes 2 taxi drivers - very convenient) and is a lovely, helpful woman. She even did my food shopping for me when I needed a cast for a broken foot! I highly recommend Ralph's place!

    Pauline2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • I recommend 100% this small house located near the center of Otavalo. Well equipped, its small adjoining garden is very pleasant to take breakfast in the morning. Eugenia who manages the house is adorable, always ready to help. Super value for money!

    Charlène2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • We were in Otavalo to visit my husband's Ecuadorian family from there and always have a retreat for us (parents and two toddlers (2 and 5). This accommodation is like a real home. You have everything you need for daily life: Comfortable beds (hard and soft mattresses to choose from ;-)), a well-equipped kitchen, a relatively warm for Ecuadorian conditions shower, laundry facilities, plenty of space for our two bandits , a beautiful garden and above all very loving neighbors. Eugenia, has received us warmly and stood us with advice and act (also with gastrointestinal problems) to the side. Ralph has kindly arranged a very trusting transfer from the airport, which we can only recommend. The Eugenia family can also offer taxi services and their Camioneta services at any time when planning a trip. Everything else is within walking distance. We really only recommend this place! Our reservation concern was the mentioned dog because our son is afraid of these animals. At the beginning the dog was always locked by Eugenia in the front yard, so that the children can move undisturbed outside. After a few days this was no longer necessary - the children and the dog are now the best friends - he lets himself be ridden by the children, pulling their hair, opening their mouths and always being well-disposed to them. Only on his things you should watch out - when washing the laundry on the Waschstein he already likes to steal socks or cups, which unfortunately can only be recovered damaged :-) Thanks for everything - it was a wonderful time!

    Laura2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Nice, spacious apartment, well located. Communication was great and we loved the dog. Everything was great!

    Andre2019-06-16T00:00:00Z

    Samia Lodge, se encuentra en la parte Rural en la Comunidad Mojanda Mirador a 15 minutos de la ciudad de otavalo, tiene un mirador espectacular que permite observa diferentes volcanes y el valle de otavalo y sus alrededores.
    La Comunidad Mojanda Mirador es el mejor sitio, tiene una vista espectacular que permite observar y conocer todo el valle de Otavalo y sus alrededores y lo mas importantes es compartir las vivencias.
  • This was absolutely one of my best Airbnb experience. A little bit of extra mile make a huge value of this place. The view is spectacular and the lodge was very well built. Samia and her family are such nice people that make me want to go back to visit. Can’t be more happy with my stay. Thank you.

    Yijing2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • It was the first time that Sam and I visited Otavalo, and Samia took great care of us. She was always attentive to any concerns we had. It is cheap to get to the place by bus (the drivers know the exact point where to drop you off). Super quiet, the fireplace is perfect, wonderful views, well equipped and everything very clean. We will return without a doubt. <3

    Ariana Guiscelle2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Samia's place was incredible. Very clean and cozy house, new kitchen appliances with everything you need to cook, with an absolutely stunning view of the area. Not far out of otavalo, with buses every 40 mins, it's a great place to get away from it all but with access to things to do. Would highly recommend!

    Mikayla2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I have stayed at over thirty Airbnbs and this by far was our most favorite experience. A personal, homey, family type of experience... what I believe Airbnb is ideally about. Samia warmly greeted us and gave us a tour. The cabin is breathtaking and was built by her father. The amount of eclectic details is amazing and the loft area was mine and my daughter’s favorite part of the home. Samia came to light the fire and also kindly had us over for dinner. Homemade food made by her mama and approved by our two year old daughter. One of the best parts of our Ecuador trip. Samia also drove us to a local waterfall, Taxopamba, and hiked along with us. The cabin is the perfect most stunning getaway space. Samia has a passion for hosting and it shows with the excellence, care, and love one experiences. Just a little disclaimer: The taxi drivers sometimes have difficulty finding the location. She does provide her phone number in case they want to call, but we had some stubborn drivers.

  • This location is perfect for an escape, with beautiful views and fresh air. Beyond cleanliness, and fast WiFi, we enjoyed the full kitchen, the lovely fireplace and hot water. Walk to a beautiful waterfall, take a long long walk and to Mojanda lakes (13km). It was convenient to use the hourly bus stop out front to go to close by Otavalo, Peguche falls, Lago San Pablo, Lake Cuicocha and Cotocachi. Samia and her family live across the road, are kind and attentive hosts who maintain professionalism. They are willing to prepare traditional and delicious food. They are also willing to pick you up at the airport for a small fee (1.5 hours away)

  • A great place to relax a bit, 15 minutes outside the city centre. The house is beautiful, with great views. Samia and her family were really Nice and welcoming.

  • I have returned to Samia after a few months and, again, a very relaxed stay, in a place with a beautiful view of Imbabura, Lake San Pablo and Otavalo. A friend accompanied me and was also delighted with the little cabin and the kindness of Samia and her family. We went for walks through the community and to the Taxopamba waterfall. Highly recommended.

  • Great location 4 blocks from shops, and Veronica made us feel like family. Super local tips and she walked us to the market and bus station so we wouldn’t get lost. Felt like a home stay which we really enjoyed including breakfast. Otavalo is a cool spot and is worth staying a few days. Great base for mountain activities nearby.

    Mike2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • This was my second visit to this bnb. The two room suite was very clean, spacious and close to the bus station. Our host answered our many questions and helped us with our Spanish.

  • Fernando and Veronica welcomed me immediately and I immediately felt part of the family. The room was very big with three beds. In addition, a room was available. Everything was very clean. They served a delicious breakfast every morning and occasionally invited me for lunch or dinner. Veronika showed me the city and also accompanied me to different tourist places. Fernando brought me Ecuadorian music as a professional musician. I can recommend this place 100% - you can not find better hosts! Muchas gracias a Veronica y Fernando!

    Cornelia2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Fernando and Veronica are welcoming and willing to help you get familiar with Otavalo. Veronica took us for a walk around the city so that we would not get lost and recommended a very good restaurant. My grandson and I felt like we were visiting family who couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable.

    Otavalo, Provincia de Imbabura, Ecuador

    Nice furnished apartment in a new house (built 2016) in the beautiful town of Otavalo. It is a very bright apartment in the third floor. Cozy living room, large dining table, fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms, bathroom, small balcony, washing machine, terrace. The price is incl. water, electricity and Internet. Our house is in a quiet and safe area. It is only a 10 minutes' walk from the Plaza de Ponchos, where is the famous Indigenous market. Close by are supermarkets, restaurants, shops, ATM.
    The apartment is very new. It has large windows and is very bright and warm.
    From the apartments you have a beautiful view to the volcanos Cotacachi (4935 m), Imbabura (4621 m) and Fuya Fuya (4286 m).
  • We loved staying in this lovely apartment in beautiful Otavalo. It is a good size and very clean and comfortable. Monica and her husband helped us a lot, particularly as we were here when movement became limited due to the coronovirus and we needed to go to Quito to change our air tickets. The country here is beaytiful, being surrounded by the imbaburra and Cotapachi volcanoes. There is a lot to do here in Otavalo, not only the 'poncho' market, and animal market on Saturday, but also the Condor park, Peguche waterfall, visiting artisans, as well as a trip to Ibarra to go on the Tren de Libertad (Freedom Train) - an excellent day. It is easy to stay at least a week here and there are plenty of beautiful hikes to do in the region. I would definitely recommend travellers to stay in Monica's apartment, and stay more than a couple of days.

    Diana2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Moni and her husband are very good hosts. If you need anything, just ask. Otavalo is a very quaint, very friendly town. The food is very good and I would not hesitate to suggest a trip here to friends. Our only observation, and this holds true for other parts of Ecuador as well, is that noise is a constant even during the night.

    Leslie2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Impeccable apartment, Monica is kind and has a perfect understanding. In addition they can safely discover all the beautiful corners of the horizons

    Independent Apartment, Access to taxi or bus to any destination 3 kilometers from the center of the city. It's a very peaceful and quite area and views of and in range of contact with nature. Departamento todo independiente acceso a taxi, bus para cualquier destino a 3 kilometros del centro de la ciudad, zona muy tranquila en contacto a la naturaleza.
    If Necessary you may ask to have full privacy and independence or if you want to have us work as a guide for orientation during your stay. Si necesitan toda privacidad e independencia pueden tenerlo o si desean podemos interactuar como guia y orientacion durante la estadia.
    what makes it special to wake up is to listen to the song of the birds breathe a pure air and feel that you are connected with nature. Es un hermoso valle rodeado por sus rios, montanias y valles; conosido por la musica con su artesania otavalenia en el mundo, tambien su cultura sus tradiciones puras manteniendo su propia lengua nativa y caracterizados por sus trajes tipicos y la identidad del hombre con su cabello largo. Todo esto hace de especial al despertar escuchar la naturaleza respirando un aire puro y sentir que estas conectado con la madre tierra.
  • The bedrooms and bathroom are large and well-lit. Although, there is a stove, and oven there is no refrigerator or microwave. The apartment is on the first floor. There is a bus that goes to the town center and the bus station. The bus stops close to the famous artesian Otavalo Market. Taxis are very cheap and are $1.50 for around town. If we come to Otavalo, again, would stay at Fausto's.

  • Please was super clean and location was great. Only 1.5 km fr downtown...great daily exercise to walk. A taxi is only $1.25 Marina who manages the property was super nice and tended our needs. We really loved meeting her family who are traditional Ecuadorians.

  • Monica was an amazing host. Anything we needed was taken care of in a quick manner. Her location is really close to the Plaza where all the main food and attractions are. She is also not far from tourist sights in the area. The most impressive part was the cab service her husband Guillermo does. He was able to take my lady and I anywhere we needed at a reasonable price. We would send her a message and she would respond if it was possible for him to take us. Amazing service!

    Jonathan2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect apartment Kindness, availability

    Mariel2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Best place to stay, hands down! Awesome hot shower water, which is a huge plus! Beds are cozy and the upstairs terrace is very tranquil to sit and read or relax. Monica is so creative and grows beautiful flowers. Plaza de ponchos is maybe a 10 minute walk, and central Otavalo is a awesome place to walk around. Monica is very responsive and her husband is often available for taxiing tenants. Do not hesitate to book here! Things to note: -Hot water is only available in the shower, not in the kitchen or bathroom sink. This is pretty standard for Ecuador. -Monica provides plenty of blankets because Otavalo nights get pretty cold, but bring warm pjs/lounge wear. -If you’re a light sleeper, ear plugs might be handy as the neighborhood dogs get a little rowdy at night. Def not enough not to stay.

I loved the common areas, especially the upstairs patio. Lots of places to hang out besides your room. Water was nice and hot, and internet was strong and fast. I liked having a key for the front door so I could come and go as I pleased.

  • It's a wonderful rustic and secluded house. It has a chimney to have those wonderful warm nights. It's definitely one of the coolest Airbnbs we had on our World travel. Thank you.

    Aaron2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • About 2.5 miles from town, this is a great place for a quiet retreat or to take day trips from. We used the woodstove during chilly evenings and the house warmed quickly & stayed comfortable all night. The food at LaLuna hostel across the road is delicious & affordable. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. Would definitely return if we were in the area!

    Rick2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved this gorgeous place with 360 views of Otavalo and the surrounding countryside. 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms with hot water, super comfy beds, a great kitchen, total privacy, and SERENITY! We slept peacefully every night and loved being able to bring back fresh food from the markets in town after long hikes all over the surrounding areas. The workers here are so helpful and friendly, especially Gabriel, the man who will make a fire for you every evening. It is just 1 1/2 hours from the Quito airport and just 30 minutes from several national parks that have amazing hiking! We would definitely book Hummingbird House again, and stay longer than the week that we did. Thank you Tamara for everything!

  • Great private getaway with beautiful views and a few nice little nearby hikes. Right across the street from a hostel and diner with a friendly staff and tasty warm meals. I loved my stay here. Thank you!

    Brett2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful place with spectacular views of the mountains, ideal if you are looking for tranquility and being somewhat away from the tourist centers.

    Xavier2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • The Hummingbird House lives up to its name: Hummingbirds and other birds can be watched undisturbed. The house is across the street and you have your privacy. An oasis to relax.

    Horst2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • We are really impressed by the beauty of the place, the lush vegetation around the house, the imposing landscape facing Cotacachi and Imbabura, besides the beauty of the house it is very comfortable and rustic, with a unique atmosphere and an experience of unique dream, we were very happy and amazed, the food of the restaurant very delicious and its very friendly staff, thank you very much

    Ariw2019-06-16T00:00:00Z

  • Deborah’s place and farm is gorgeous, such a great place to stay. I recommend it to anyone who wants to stay near otavalo and Cotacachi. Her place offers amazing views and a beautiful house. Deborah is also such a sweet person she can help you with anything you’d need. The veggies on the farm are a delicious plus. Overall great stay for anybody

    Joaquin2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a relaxing, memorable stay at Casa Verde. Deborah was very helpful, easy to communicate with, and generous. The abundant and fresh vegetables at Finca Ellis made their way into all of our dinners which really enhanced our stay. The town is easy to walk to and supplied us with everything we needed, and Lago Cuicocha was a stunning and adventurous afternoon trip. Five stars!

    Avery2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • An excellent lodging house Fully recommended Would return. Repeat

    Elyas2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • It was an easy drive from Quito and the directions Deborah gave lead us right to her place. We wished we didn't stay in the loud town of Quito more than a few days. The cottage is cuter in person than I could have imagined. The farm is a serene environment that just made me want to stay a lot longer than we did. The town Cotacachi is a 5 min drive from the farm and a nice place to visit. The food was good and cheap. There is a beautiful crater lake called Cuicocha that is a 20 min drive from the farm. We hiked around part of it and had astounding views in every direction. I highly recommend this place for those who like to get away from it all.

    Marlene2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place Super fire place We loved it

    Sharon2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • It is a wonderful place with a lot of peace. The house is perfect with all its independence and comfort. Deborah is very kind and helped us a lot to spend happy days. It is not so far from the city, walking will be 20 min along a nature trail to Quiroga or Cotacachi. We would like to stay all year long so it is beautiful. We highly recommend you!

    Audrey2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing! I can't say enough good things about Casa Verde and Finca Ellis! We stayed for one blissful week and loved everything about our stay. The casita is absolutely charming and Deborah did an exquisite job of decorating every corner and painting the beautiful murals on the upstairs walls. The first morning we took a rural walk through farmland from the house into Cotacachi. Along the way we met the most gentle indigenous (‭Quechuan) people. I loved talking to them; they have such a warm presence. The mountainous scenery along the way was spectacular. Don't miss the walk around Lago Cuicocha. It's an amazing, tough (especially if you haven't acclimated to the altitude as we hadn't) 8.5 miles around the perimeter. The views of the lake are unbeatable! Tip: Wear long sleeves, long pants, hat, a neck protector. Apply and reapply sunscreen. (The tip of my nose, lips and chin got burned pretty bad without realizing it.) It's all good; just take care! Enjoy!

    Linda2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice, quiet and comfortable place. Ideal to rest. Deborah is very cordial, she helped us in what we needed. We would stay again without hesitation. Recommended place

  • Fausto's sister Marina is the person who is onsite to help with issues. She doesn't speak English, but if that is a problem you can communicate through Fausto. He is quick to respond and very helpful. I came to Otavalo to live and work and needed a fast internet connection. When I got here I was a little disappointed because the apartment they gave me was not the one in the picture and very bare. Fausto told me he moved me to this apartment because the internet was better and he wanted me to be able to work. Marina quickly got me everything I needed to make the apartment comfortable (couch, fridge, desk, and a hammock chair!) and was extremely nice, even though I was a little crabby at first from traveling and seeing an empty apartment, hahaha. I am very happy with this apartment. This is truly a wonderful and caring family. I have everything I need and greatly appreciate the attention to detail and customer service from Fausto and Marina. There are a number of small shops close by to get basics and a few small family-owned restaurants. The bus stops across the street to take you to Otavalo (30 cents) in 10 minutes or on the same side of the street to take you to Cotacachi (35 cents) in 15 mins. The view is amazing! You have a view of Volcan Cotacachi out the front window and both Volcan Cotacachi and Volcan Imbabura from the roof. The only thing that would make it better would be access to a washing machine. I'm not a fan of handwashing, but there is a place on the roof to handwash and airdry clothes (with a great view). There is also a place in town to wash clothes, but it's a bit expensive and far away. Other than that, great apartment, great family and great city!

    Amanda2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • It's a very good place in a nice calm safe location. Small shops nearby and a restaurant. 1 minute walk to the municipal bus which takes you downtown in 5 minutes for 30 cents. Its so easy to take the buses around. A cool baby cow lives nearby. The sister can help you with anything and is nearby. We had a great trip and enjoyed the culture, festival, market, trekking, waterfall, and local tips! A great experience. The apartment is perfect if modest and spartan, for an excellent price and value.

  • We had the most lovely stay at Kurmi Wasi! Carmen and her family were very welcoming and kind, the food was outstanding (fresh from their farm and garden), the location was excellent, and the room was stylish. We highly recommend staying here!

    Natalie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent very nice place to rest at the beginning It seemed a little far but it is really or relatively close to cotacachi a very safe place the people attended us very well we received very well the breakfast service Excellent very rich and tasty a highly recommended place the truth

    Gabriel2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • I has a wonderful time at Carmen’s place. I will never forget the interesting and delicious breakfast we had. Unfortunately I didn’t have more time to spend at that place. The house is also beautiful

    Liz2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Carmen's home is a fantastic place to stay. The room and bathroom were spacious, clean and the bed comfortable. I also felt safe when walking to town through the indigenous community, even though there were some (friendly) dogs on the street, like everywhere in Cotacachi. I can warmly recommend this place to all travelers.

    Joy2020-02-11T00:00:00Z

    Furnished cabana, kitchen, private access. Avocado, lemon and eucaliptus trees near your door and colibri flying all-day long. I can offer you breakfasts and lunches for few dollars more. And there are plenty of shops and street food vendors around.
    Lo mejor para una pareja o viajero solitario y una vista espectacular al volcán Imbabura. Es una cabaña amoblada, cuadros en las paredes, la cocina y por supuesto, wi-fi y conexión a internet por cable para su computadora portátil totalmente equipadas! :) Usted puede caminar alrededor de la propiedad y recoger los aguacates y limones y también deleitarse con los diferentes sonidos que emiten una variedad de pajaritos y el vuelo constante de 5 clases de colibríes. ( A veces serán visitados por mis perritos Martina una labrador color café y una perrita blanca pequeña mixta a la que llamamos melcocha).
    It is calm and safe. Not many cars. Very clear and significant view of Imbabura.
  • Very pretty and very comfortable! Miryan is a superhost, he communicated with us every day and gave us water. We arrived very late to her house, and she waited for us and made a fire for us.

    Alli2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • <3 Miriam's cottage <3 My partner and I can not express what a treat and special time we had. The cottage lies in a garden reminiscent of a secret fairy garden; there are orchids, fruit trees, and hummingbirds everywhere. Inside the cottage is very quaint and cozy, the fireplace is so nice on chilly evenings and the wifi works great. The cottage is a 15- 20 minute walk from the town center, it is a nice safe walk or you can catch a bus for 30c or a taxi for $1.5, very easy! Miriam is very thoughtful: she checked on us often, brought treats, did our laundry for FREE, and offered many suggestions for things to do. She even offered to take us to a historic site nearby in Colombia. Really she is a friend now and 100% we would stay there again and recommend the cottage.

    Courtney2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Our little casita on the hill was the perfect place to stay for a month. In a beautiful garden with fresh fruits, herbs, and avocados ready to be picked, the house overlooks volcán Imbaburra and the town of Otavalo. Miryan helped us in every way imaginable, and often brought us fresh baked bread, fruit, or juices right to our door in the morning. We're extremely grateful for this experience, and strongly recommend it to anyone.

    Alex2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • I loved it, it really is an amazing place ... I totally recommend it! =)

    Paola2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Nice, easy, great location and Miryam is super warm.

    Ulrich2019-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place is the best place to stay in Otovalo. It's an easy walk into town, just far enough out to be quiet with a serene, sunny, private front yard. There's a store with all the basics about 50 yds down the street. Miryam is the perfect host. 2-3 adults can fit comfortably in the cabin, and others can fit in her other small buildings on the property. Note that the pin on the map is inaccurate- the cabin is located about 15 min walk southeast of Plaza de los ponchos.

    Jen2019-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Miryan's casita is a great place to stay in Otavalo. My husband and I loved the animals, the gorgeous mountain view, and the rustic charm. The best part is Miryan herself: She went above and beyond recommend places, even bringing us on a wonderful excursion, and completely helping us get to our next destination. She also knows a lot about Ecuador in general and is a pleasure to speak with.

    Rebecca2018-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Miryan is a very helpful and incredibly sweet host. She speaks excellent English in case your Spanish is not so good. The cabana is a 10 minute walk above town which allows for excellent views while still being very convenient to town. The fireplace is nice for cool nights and you get a lovely yard full of blooming flowers to yourself.

  • This is a very nice and good sized apartment overlooking the central square in Cotacachi. It was very clean and had everything needed including a full kitchen. We very much enjoyed staying for 2 weeks and had no problems. The view alone of the park, the cathedral and the Cotacachi volcano from the balcony is worth the trip! As others have noted, it can be noisy during the day and evening.

    Brad2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Cotacachi is a truly beautiful undiscovered town that I would recommend. If you plan on visiting, I highly recommend booking this apartment. You cannot be more centrally located than this — Located right in the central square. A hive of activity that enables you to get a real feel of this exiting town. The apartment is warm and furnished as well as you can expect. There is a spacious kitchen and lounge area with a small balcony overlooking the square. The WiFi is fast (I read this isn’t the norm in other areas) which for me was important as I needed fast internet access for work. Being centrally located, it is of course noisy during the day, though with the bedrooms being located at the back of the apartment, noise doesn’t disturb sleep if you need a afternoon nap. The main benefit of staying here is the value. The cost per night is astounding for such an apartment. A true mark of why AirBNB reigns supreme over hotels and other forms of holiday accommodation. This apartment was only available for the first two nights of my 19 day stay in Cotacachi. I met Louis and his daughter (who speaks fluent English) and discovered they also owned the duplicate apartment directly below (also listed here on AirBNB.. though harder to find appearing further down the list). I immediately booked 17 nights to cover the rest of my stay. I am writing this review from that apartment. Perfect for my needs in every way.

    Craig2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment was located in an excellent spot overlooking the park and cathedral in downtown. Place was very clean and safe. Shower was warm (not hot), but overall a very nice place and good value.

Excellent view from the patio. Its directly across from the church. The apartmenthas everything you need and is very stylishand secure. Cotacachi is a very safe and picturesque city. I felt 100% safe everywhere I went. Luis and his family are fantastic hosts. He responds very quickly and they go out of their way to see to your needs. Couldn't ask for a better stay. Thank you Luis!

Aylluwasi is 3 blocks from Plaza de los Ponchos, 2 blocks from the bus terminal where you can ride to/from Quito for $3. There are lots of shops and restaurants nearby. We definitely plan to stay again when we return!
