We loved Nuestro Paraiso. It's a beautiful, clean bamboo house that's close to the ocean. Comfy bedroom with a fan and screen door that opens onto a small balcony. Well appointed bathroom with a great shower (lots of pressure and hot water, which can be a rarity in Ecuador). Bill was very helpful. He made us a delicious breakfast (starting with strong cups of coffee, also a rarity in Ecuador), which we ate on the porch. All said, we had a delightful stay in a beautiful part of the country. Also, Nuestro Paraiso is about 1 km down the road from La Calderada, a fantastic restaurant that was featured on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations in the Ecuador episode.

We had a great stay here with Bill and Colleen. They have a beautiful, quiet home just outside of Montanita: 5 minutes by cab ($1-2) or bus ($0.50). The cleanest and most comfortable place we have stayed in Ecuador. Great WIFI, friendly and welcoming hosts, very comfy bed and delicious healthy breakfasts. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a comfortable and relaxing retreat while still being close to bustling Montanita.

Nuestro Paraiso is the perfect spot for enjoying Montañita and the surrounding beaches, while still being able to sleep (the town is SUPER loud at night). A taxi to Montañita is only $1.5-$2, and Bill and Colleen even graciously drove us a couple times. Their house is beautifully built, with all the amenities you could want (hot shower where you can pick the temperature, comfy bed & pillows, deck for lounging).

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending 3 nights at Nuestro Paraiso in April 2014. We had a wonderful stay in Room 2 in the "Big House" - the room is perfectly cool and temperate all the time thanks to great ventilation and a very strong ceiling fan (and floor fan). We loved sleeping with doors open at night - finally a place that has screens to keep the bugs out and let the fresh air in! We enjoyed relaxing in the room when we'd had too much sun at the beach - the bed was comfortable and we had plenty of comfy pillows, too. The bathroom and bedroom were both spotless - it is clear that constant care and maintenance go into the room and bathroom. The hosts also provided us with a generous supply of clean towels (this is uncommon in B&Bs, but very much appreciated!) and also beach towels that we could take with us during the day. The best part about staying at Nuestro Paraiso was getting to meet the hosts, Bill and Colleen, who both made us feel welcome and comfortable to be in their beautiful home. We had some great conversations with them over breakfast in the mornings (great breakfasts of yogurt, fresh fruits, granola, coffee, tea, eggs, toast…very generous). Bill and Colleen were kind enough to offer us a ride to Olon on Saturday as they were heading over for a lunch with other expats and we tagged along and had a great time chatting with them over a delicious local lunch on the beach. We didn't have a car during our stay but never had a problem walking to the beach, walking to Montanita, or hailing a cab on the main road for $1.50 to the town centre. If we're heading back to Mangralalto or Montanita in the near future, we won't hesitate to stay with Bill and Colleen (and our new friend, Pepsi) again.

La experiencia en nuestro paraiso fue realmente excelente. La casa es preciosa, super cómoda, la habitación grande y limpia, te cambian las toallas, te dan toallas para la playa, todo muy limpio y agradable. Colleen y Bill son muy amables y buenos anfitriones, todos los dias te preparan el desayuno en el momento (frutas frescas, huevos, tostadas, cafe con leche) y te ayudan en todo lo que les pedis. Se encuentra lo suficientemente alejado de montañita como para disfrutar la tranquilidad de descansar bien y lo suficientemente cerca en taxi por 1.50 o 2 usd para llegar al centro, aunque también se puede caminar por la playa. La estadia fue genial e hicieron que nos sintieramos como en casa!!! Muchas gracias!!!!!

Nous avons passé 9 nuits au Nuestro Paraiso avec Bill et Colleen. Nous avons passé la majorité de notre séjour avec Bill, car Colleen est partie en vacance entre temps. Nous avons très bien été traités. Les déjeuners étaient excellents ( au choix : fruits, rôties, œufs, granola, yogourt, café ... et même des pancakes un matin ). La chambre est au premier étage. Nos hôtes sont au deuxième. Le lit est très confortable et draps de qualité. Pas d'air climatisé, mais non nécessaire puisqu'il y a une excellente ventilation à l'intérieur. Chambre de bain privée fonctionnelle. Pas de problème d'eau chaude et aucun manque de serviettes. Petit balcon privé agréable. Nos hôtes sont toujours près à répondre à nos besoins. La maison est à Manglaralto, qui est à environ 3 km de Montanita. Nous avions loué une auto qui fut très pratique pour visiter la région et aller manger à Montanita où se trouvent plusieurs bons restaurants. Il n'y a pas vraiment d'épiceries mais plutôt des dépanneurs. Maison sécuritaire et calme. Tout en bambou et très spacieuse. On tombe en amour avec Pepsi, la chienne de la maison qui est adorable. Un de nous est allergique et n'a eu aucun problème, sûrement grâce à la bonne ventilation et à l'entretien. Merci beaucoup Bill encore pour tes bons conseils et tes petits soins. Merci Colleen pour ton séchoir à cheveux :) En espérant que tu as fait un beau voyage. Nous vous recommandons à tous ceux qui visitent la région.
