About the property

Spectacular setting high in the Andes mountains minutes where spring is eternal

Looking for Sangri-La? Imagine opening you eyes every morning to a volcanic mountain framed by the bedroom window and having local coffee on the front porch watching hummingbirds and dazzling sunrises. Then spend the day seeing the treasures of Ecuador and enjoying the warmth of the Ecuadorian people. This is what our house has in store for you. We are located in a gated English speaking community in Cotacachi, Ecuador (near Otavalo), tucked in a valley at 8,700' between two dormant volcanic mountains. Enjoy balmy weather (55-75 degrees) throughout the year. The house has two spacious master bedroom suites (sleeps 6: king in main master, queen + twin beds in other master), a rocking chair front porch and a rear sunroom with adjacent patio where idling away the hours becomes an art. House is fully furnished including washer/dryer, wifi, fully stocked kitchen, flat screen TV with DVD player and use of a cell phone (tenant pays for minutes). Weekly maid service is provided as well as a gardener. About a 15 min walk (or < 5 min cab) to town where restaurants abound and a 3 course lunch with juice is $3.00. U.S. dollar is the currency in Ecuador and ATM machines abound. A spectacular resort is located next door (google La Mirage) where one can have a reasonably priced 5 star spa and/or dinner experience. Our house manager is multi lingual and she can help with many of your needs including transportation to/from the Quito airport (62 miles; 100 km). Go for the experience - you won't regret it! Non smoking house and no pets. Proprietors live in Atlanta.

In comparison to staying at a hotel or hostel or condo, our home with all its amenities is luxurious, cleaner, nicer, and cheaper (monthly rate equates to <$30/day) in our humble and biased opinion!! 😊🌺 So if you're planning a trip to Ecuador, please consider us.

About Steve Hitte

I am retired and live in Atlanta, GA. Enjoy traveling, motorcycling riding and entertaining.

Steve Hitte purchased this house in 2010

Why Steve Hitte chose Cotacachi

After years of business travel to Ecuador (flight attendant) we wanted to experience the magic of this country and the warmth of its people on an ongoing basis so what better way than to invest in this country.

What makes this house unique

Views of 2 dormant volcanos from front and back of house, watching hummingbirds lite on the flowers and the eternal spring like weather make our home a wonderful place to enjoy year around.

A piece of paradise

  • 4 of 5

The house is wonderful. The caretakers are great. The propriety is amazing. The community is just right. The only draw back from an awesome stay is the bugs. My wife's favorite spot was the sun porch. Thank you very much for the stay. All in all I would recommend it. Jay Ungard

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. The "bugs" I believe being referred to are tiny black bugs found in the grass (similar to chiggers in the US). They do not affect everyone (wife yes; me no) and if you stay off grass or wear long pants with socks and shoes they should not be a problem.
