The space

Our house is one of the few in Mindo which is constructed completely with wood of the region. You will love this warm and lovely atmosphere during your stay in Mindo! In the first floor you will find the living room with a small kitchen. The tables are made of thechonta-palm” a black, very heavy and beautiful kind of wood. The kitchen has a stove and a coffee machine. There is one restroom as well in the first floor. In the second floor are two bedrooms (one with a double bed and one with a single bed) and a second living room with a comfortable couch and a lot of balconies to enjoy all the plenty of birds which are around the house. The showers and a second restroom are as well in the second floor.

HAPPY WITH OUR CHOICE OF CASA MADERA COMFORTABLE AND AFFORDABLE. We rented Olaf and Flor’s house for five weeks in June and July, 2016. A few expected quirks, common in South America aside, we found Casa Madera delightful and would not hesitate to return. BEDS: We tried only one of the three. While it was a bit small for us (double/full), it was very comfortable. This is no small point when you stay for more than a night. We didn’t need them, but we found extra blankets in the storage closet. STORAGE: Plenty of shelves and storage space. WIFI: Excellent; way better than expected. It went out only once while we were here. The outage was widespread and had nothing to do with the house. OTHER ENTERTAINMENT: The T.V. wasn’t working while we were there (I think problem with subscription to Direct T.V.), but it was not important to us. Had it been important, I have no doubt that Olaf would have taken care of it. There was some fancy-looking stereo equipment, but we did not even test it out because we prefer listening to the songs of birds, frogs, and insects. BATHROOMS: Nothing fancy, but everything worked, although we never really got the hang of getting hot water. If hot water is important, talk to Olaf about how to work the system. KITCHEN: Well supplied for simple meals. We ate all our meals there. CLEANLINESS: Excellent. LOOKS: Very attractive; beautiful wood. Please take care so it looks as nice when I return. NEIGHBORHOOD: Casa Madera is tucked in between some hostel housing (Hostal Cecilia) and is located across from El Quetzal. The house is within a block and a half of the central plaza. It feels like a safe neighborhood, and the people who work at Hostal Cecilia are friendly. They have a feeding station for the birds and invited me onto their property to look at birds any time. Their dogs, Luna and Mancha are friendly too. Mindo, itself, is a very comfortable community. HOSTS: Olaf and Flor are helpful and friendly. I highly recommend them as your next hosts!

Olaf and Flor were fantastic! Very responsive to all messages and even provided a local phone to call them if necessary. The house and linens were very clean. The home is as described and better. There are two decks upstairs and down. A very nice river flows directly behind the house. Birds can be viewed from the deck. There are two bathrooms one upstairs and one downstairs. The home is right across the road from the chocolate factory and two blocks from the central park in Mindo. If you're looking for easy access to town you can't beat this location. After spending 10 days in the Mindo area I can tell you this house is one of the nicest for rent in town. You really can't beat this deal for two or more people. It's a great family location, safe, nice neighbors and on a dead end road.

The luxury wooden home for my stay in Mindo owned by Olaf and Flor was wonderful . The description of the property was quite accurate, and Olaf was very attentive to my requests for assistance. I would recommend the house to all for a great stay in Mindo. Explore Mindo - it is a great location to visit and experience Ecuador's natural wonders.......waterfalls, rivers, tubing, hiking and bird watching. Gary

Fast communication - super friendly and accommodating hosts! House was as described - enjoy your stay!!! Thanks Olaf and Flor!!!

Comfortable, Clean, Beautiful My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in this house for the month of June, 2014. We couldn't have made a better choice. The house is located alongside a clear flowing river, 3 blocks from the town square. It has two roomy floors with private, breezy balconies off of both, large sliding glass doors and windows all around that open to let in the breezes. The downstairs has livingroom-kitchen-dining area plus a 1/2 bath, kitchen is well-stocked, full gas stove and oven that works. Upstairs not only has 2 bedrooms and full bathroom, but also a large sitting area with couch, desk, and 3rd-floor loft. Wifi signal is strong throughout the house. We felt completely secure. On top of all this, the entire house is beautiful polished wood. Occassionally on weekends there was some noise from the hostal next door, though it was usually quiet by 10pm. Owners Olaf and Flor, helped us in every way needed. Upon returning to Mindo this house would always be our first choice.

Perfecto! We love this house and we love Mindo! You have everything you need in the house and additional a small river in front of your feet :-) its totally quiet exept the river and if you want some action you can book them just a few meters away. Olaf brought us a big wather tank and lots of fruits for a good start... If we could stay for ever, we would!
