This treehouse is absolutely magnificent. Perched amidst the trees, this beautiful home guarantees the perfect getaway. With access to the main road and a short trail to the beach, it is convenient for coming and going as you please. One morning we looked outside our window to see an iguana chilling on a branch feet from our balcony. What is also great about this house is that it is situated just a block or two from the riotous center of Montanita, ensuring a quiet escape for you to leisurely swing in one of the many hammocks. The art scattered around the house was a wonderful surprise. We added some of our own to the collection. We're were greeted with a fruit basket and water. If the opportunity arises, we will definitely be returning.
This house was truley amazing. We are 4 guys from Sweden and we've stayed here now for 2 months. We absolutely love it. The house it self is so beautiful. It's almost entierly made of of wood and really feels like living in a jungle. There are two balconies pointed to the sunset through the trees. The garden is beautiful with birds and butterflies flying around. It is rustic, some things are not totally functional, like the kitchen fan that makes annoying sounds. But we don't mind to much. Its charm takes over. And there are 2 really nice caretakers that help out with cleaning and taking care of these kind of stuff. They run a hostel in Montanita and are so helpful. We got the house cleaned once every week.
The house is located by the road but we never got bothered by that. It's still a big garden between the house and the road. On the other side there is a beutiful path down to the beach. We have our own surfboards and surf every day. It's is located just outside the most crowded part of town, wich is nice because montanita gets really crowded sometimes. During weekends and holidays there is a lot of people in town.
We never met the host, she lives in Quito. But she seems really nice and helps us out with whatever we want. She speaks perfectally good english and is very helpful. The price monthly was $1000, wich is not super cheap, but worth it.
So, if you're not too comfertable and used to luxury, air conditioned hotels, we highly recommend this house. It really is amazing. But please don't book the house this spring because we want to stay! ;)
This is as Montañita as you can get. The house is a typical wooden house from the coast of Ecuador. It was very rustic and well taken care of. The fact that it is wooden makes it different. Susana was great she had a contract for 3 months with other people and did not cancel us, even though we were in the middle of the other peoples stay. Just because we had made the reservation first for the busiest week of the year which is New Years . The town get really busy and crowded in this particular holiday, so there was a lot of traffic which made the house a little noisy for us. We had a fun stay.
The host made us feel very welcome by meeting us there and explaining the house to us. They had fresh fruit and coffee and dinner rolls. They were always prompt in replying. The neighborhood however was right next to the highway, so it was noisiy, which should have been mentioned in the ad. Also, the house was much more rustic than we expected, with older amenities, fans that creaked as well as floors. The doors were hard to lock and the shower head has wires coming out of it that looked dangerous. We didn't think it was worth $100+ a night, would have been fine for maybe $60ish. But the host was great and the Location in regards to the town was a perfect spot.
