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. 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.

I am an author of the 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. I have settled on top of this mountain I call 'EnchantingWind' about 8 years ago and created a place for Meditative Retreat, Artist Residence to share the beauty of nature here with courageous people and 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.
