Enjoy a deep forest experience in style and comfort AND fast wifi. The “TreeHouse" is a masterly crafted, 3 story cabin with deluxe furnishings, organic linens, spring fed water & amazing views of the CloudForest. We’re less than 2 miles to the village of Mindo, but far enough out to have perfect serenity and union with Nature. There just aren’t many places like this left in the world. Bring your laptop, work from the upper deck while listening to the Toucans Sing or just come chill out.

The space
Our cabin is a unique, tree level, 3 story hand crafted cabin in the middle of the cloud forest with great attention to detail and remarkable views of the forested mountains. Enjoy the well appointed and comfort driven interior and our incredible, private location. You will hear the morning songs of birds and crickets and the soft rush of the River.

The ground floor is open with a dining table, surrounded by lovely gardens. Here is the enclosed shower and the first of two toilets. You can enjoy our hand made adult "swings" and in the evening sit around the fire pit and sip some wine.

The second story holds the bedroom with high end mattress, beautiful organic linens and a charming half bath. The large windows open wide to bring in the views and mountain breezes.

On the 3rd story is the kitchenette and lounge area. There is a kettle/coffee maker with a small frig and microwave for heating food (no stove, no cooking) Enjoy a few of the excellent local restaurants within walking distance. Many restaurants in town 3k away. There is a comfortable convertible sofa that turns into a single bed. Relax on the 3rd story balcony and take in the breathtaking views. You can sip some excellent local coffee and watch the birds flitting in the trees at eye level.

If you are a nature lover or bird watcher, you will be thrilled. Our property is at the end of the road, surrounded by miles of forest inside the 1700 sq Kil UNESCO Protected Biosphere. There just aren’t many places like this left in the world and a rarity even in Mindo.

Our water source is an abundant spring borne on the property and the best water you have ever tasted. You will shower in it as well.

Enjoy our fantastic private trails from easy to challenging with astounding views of the mountains. Encounter a few of our stunning waterfalls, many tropical birds, guest often see monkeys. If you are a photography buff, you will be in heaven. We kindly request you hike with our trusted guide for safety, rate is $15 per person. Best trails ever.

PLEASE NOTE, we only allow our local taxi driver on our property. If you are arriving by bus or taxi from Quito, our driver will meet you in Mindo and bring you to our property.

If you are driving , please park your vehicle at the first gate and walk up. Thx.

I'm an American, living in Ecuador since 2011. I'm a life long nature enthusiast, Vegan and Yoga Teacher. I'm very interested in Natural Living and have used permaculture principles when creating my home, cabin, organic gardens and trails. I love making my property pleasing and peaceful for guests. Everyone remarks how beautiful the gardens are, planted with gorgeous flowers and full of hummingbirds and colorful butterflies. Its been a dream come true and a labor of love. Its truly paradise! You will be staying in my very private, very special. hand crafted guest cabin. Its fantastic with lots of personal touches and care. You will feel right at home. Some folks rent for a week and use the cabin as a personal “retreat”, taking yoga classes and getting massages...treat yourself.
