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.
