About this listing
At the edge of the forest, surrounded by birds and giant tree ferns, our house makes an ideal base for birders - or to just kick back in a hammock on the porch. Bamboo beams, woven ceiling and black palm floors inside, with views over the treetops.
Two bedrooms with a queen-size bed in one, and three individual beds in the other. Open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting area open out to terrace overlooking the garden and forests. There is an additional guest cottage which could accomodate a guide or other travelling companion.
Forest near house (and the view from the porch) provide great birdwatching. There is a walking trail through the forest - about 45 minutes - steep in places but beautiful.
Other things to note
We have a caretaker and his family who live down the hill and are available to help orient you and help out. He also has two dogs which spend most of the time at his place, but sometimes wander up to say hi. They are mellow labs. Arrangements are possible with caretakers' wife for cleaning and laundry.
We are also happy to provide suggestions of things to do, places to see, guides to contact in the Mindo area.
