The house sits on a hill with eucalyptus forest. A few blocks from the house spend two options bus going to the center, the bus takes 20-30 minutes to reach the city center and buses run every 5 minutes.
To return home in downtown Cuenca there are two options: 1. Take a bus and then walk a few blocks up the mountain and a little steep. 2. that most guests prefer to take a taxi which will cost 5 or 7 dollars.
I hope to walk a steep mountain is not a problem for you.

Oh Lord. What is not to love about this place. First be mindful of the steep hill. It took me a couple of days to get used to it due to altitude. But its so worth it. I do not have enough words to describe how happy and thankful I am with Zilpa and her family for their help. I even got sick and Zilpa was there asking me how I was doing. The family is absolutely amazing. I never used transportation in Baños everything was walking distance. I like to walk. And getting to Cuenca is very easy. There are maps in the room which is fantastic and very helpful. I definitely see myself going back for sure! Ohhh and try to get the room with the terrace. I used to take naps in the hammock LOL. The view is PERFECT. I was looking for a quiet place to relax and ended up finding more than that. I would recommend this place without a doubt. God bless this family always.

Beautiful, generous, and kind family, comfortable private room. Insane view, well worth the effort to get up the hill. Walkable to the hot springs spas and bus stop that goes to central quenca. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

We had an amazing time staying with Zilpa and Santiago. Their house is beautiful, and they were extremely kind and helpful. Our stay with them was the first part of a longer trip, and after staying with them we moved to another AirBnb in historic Cuenca. This was the perfect, relaxing way to start off our trip. My husband was working on a documentary project on metal workers in South America, and Santiago and Zilpa went out of their way to connect us with local artisans and get us oriented. We will absolutely stay here again.

This lovely home does not fall short of the great photos. The terrace room offers fresh air and a wonderful view within one's private space. (The view of the fireworks over the entire valley on New Year's Eve was breathtaking.) The rooms are well appointed, clean and have character. I was treated very well by everyone in the family, especially Zilpa. They were very patient with me practicing my Spanish. As I am quite fit I was able to manage the hill and take bus number 12 to and from Cuenca often. It was also a fun challenge to climb even higher to the top of the Eucalyptus forest! Make time for a spa day though. It was a highlight.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful mountain top lodge. The views are magnificent and the room quite lovely. Silpa and Santiago were very helpful and made the stay so pleasant. Be sure and bring your bathing suits as this lodge is close to some wonderful thermal baths.
