Everything was great.Bill is an amazing host. The house is beautiful and the room has everything needed. The location is just around 3 minutes away from Montañita. It's really quite and relaxing but you are quickly in Montañita too.

Safe, secure, and quiet. Lots of birds. Great breakfast each morning and conversations with the Bill and Colleen. Great help and advice regarding the local area, places to visit, where to eat, and how to get there. The place was very clean and comfortable. They also provided invaluable info on getting between Guayaquil and Montanita/Manglaralto. In the end they were even kind enough to drive us to the Montanita bus terminal on the day we left.

We were warmly welcomed at Nuestro Paraiso by both Bill and Colleen along with their friendly doggies Pepsi and Hope. My husband and I enjoyed our 2 night stay at their home. Clean room with comfortable bedding, warm showers, wifi, tasty breakfasts and a relaxing hammock. It was a $2 cab ride into Montañita or a nice 30 min stroll along the beach. We highly recommend this airbnb.

Staying at Nuestro Paraíso was really great. It is only 5 minutes from Montañita town (1.5-2$ taxi), which makes it perfect to sleep because town is really loud at night. Room is very comfortable and breakfast is delicious. Finally, Bill and Colleen and excelent guests and really nice people. And their dog Pepsi is just beautiful! Me and my girlfriend loved being there and we highly recommend this place to anyone who goes to Montañita or Manglaralto. Thanks a lot guys, hope to see you again some time!

Bill and Colleen are the definition of hospitality. Their b&b is located on a serene plot just minutes from Montanita and Manglaralto. They are full of local recommendations (and even helped us coordinate a few excursions). We appreciated the peacefulness, comfortable accommodations (including a private balcony we didn't expect) and warmhearted hospitality.

Lovely jungle-like surroundings, very helpful & well-informed hosts, delicious breakfasts, and a gentle dog. We were able to plan what to do each day after considering our hosts' daily advice. We needed & appreciated those tips.

The highlight of my trip to Ecuador was staying at Bill and Colleen's place in Manglaralto which is about 5 minutes from Montanita and ten minutes to Olon beach.Bill picked me up from my hostal and brought me to their home. Their house that they had built out of bamboo was beautiful and my room was fantastic. Great bed and hot shower. They were wonderful company and I enjoyed spending time with them and their dog Pepsi. I loved where they were. Far enough away from the craziness of Montanita over the holidays, but close enough to go into Montanita for dinner .Manglaralto also has its own beach which was almost deserted and it was a pleasant ten minute walk Colleen is a wonderful massage therapist as well. They were kind enough to invite myself and another guest to a gringo New Years party. I can't say enough about their hospitality and would definitely recommend their place to any of my friends. Cheers, Cheryl Blatt
