Living off Grid-WIFI YES - 30min from the town by taxi.

If you would you like to be hidden away from busy daily life for a while this place is a perfect place for you. In this mountain you will participate in reconnecting your body, mind, and spirit with nature, and inspiring, allowing yourself to drink in the amazing creative spirit here on top of the mountain. Or just wander around the mountain. There are many great hiking trails here. For the purpose of our setting no animals are allowed.

The space
A magical place, atop a hill overlooking the Podocarpus National Park and Vilcabamba Valley, this is indeed an enchanted mountain with the wind, morning mist, clouds, the moon and the sun, rainbow all in harmony.

Artist Residence Enchantingwind(ARE) is for the people who just want to immerse themselves and nature. It is a great place to do yoga, to meditate, to create art or just wander around mountains, NOT a place for entertainment.

You can get to ARE by taxi or walk. The road comes up to my house. It takes about 30min from town(Vilcabamba) and cost $12. I normally walk from bottom of the mountain to my house taking about 1 hr.

Guest access
You have access the whole cabin you stay and of course, the whole mountain is waiting for you to explore. And guest has access to using Laundry machine but it's $5 per load.

Other things to note
We have electricity generated by a solar panel for use of internet and charging small electronic devices and to lit the room. But sometimes, when it’s heavily over casted the power may not enough.
You are going to wake up when the sun comes up. You are going to bed when the sun goes down. I believe It is a great way to harmonize your body and mind with nature.

I am an author of a book 'Ordinary yet Extraordinary' which is downloadable on my website enchantingwind. I moved from New York City to Vilcabamba, a small cosmopolitan village in southern Ecuador where I felt a deep connection with the natural world and I have settled on top of mountain where the beauty of nature is amazing about 8 years ago, creating an artist residence ARE to share the beauty of nature with courageous artists. You can find me on the web, searching artist residence enchantingwind in Vilcabamba or Maya Choi on (Hidden by Airbnb) . Thank you for taking time to read it. Maya from the mountain.
