Serene visit to paradise!
The owners, Nano and Marjorie, created a beautiful and unique property located in relative seclusion but close enough to town to walk (20 to 30 minutes). We stayed in the 3 bedroom, 2 bath eco house for only two nights and I wish our stay was longer. The house is roomy and comfortable. The sun room has ample windows that overlook a lush, tropical landscape, perfect for viewing birds and wildlife from the comfort of home. A covered wooden bridge winds through a wonderland of gorgeous plants and leads you to a large spring fed pool and fountain. This secluded pool area has a changing room, bathroom and sauna. In another area of the lush, expansive yard, there is a gazebo covered with colorful hanging vines. This secluded site is visited regularly by several species of hummingbirds, and overlooks tropical forest and mountain areas making for a magical feel to this incredibly relaxing area. Several hammocks are available at the gazebo. There are numerous activities that can be arranged in the nearby town that range from strenuous activities like waterfall hikes, gondola rides, white water tubing, and zip lining to more sedate and relaxing activities like visiting the butterfly garden and chocolate making tour. I can't say enough about this special place and the two special people who own the property. Nano and Marjorie are readily available for any questions and/or assistance and are two of the nicest people you will be lucky enough to meet when visiting Ecuador.
This property exceeded our expectations. Mindo is a beautiful area and staying in this environment-friendly house located away from the buzz of the town was just perfect.
The place is clean, welcoming and impeccably maintained. We were very comfortable and were able to make our meals (if you plan to cook your meals, it’s a good idea to do some shopping in Quito before heading to Mindo). There are also lots of restaurants in the area so food is not a problem.
The gazebo with numerous hammocks was the perfect place to rest and relax while enjoying nature!
The pool was wonderful - beautiful surroundings and chemical free! The sauna was quite enjoyable as well.
The owner, Fernando, provided us with a tour of the house when we arrived which was very useful. Fernando was a wonderful host and was always available and attentive to our needs.
Mindo is a birder’s paradise and as birders ourselves we appreciated the fabulous birding opportunities right in the property as well as in the surrounding areas.
An SUV is highly recommended for this area.
Thanks Fernando for hosting our family! It was wonderful. We all also loved Penny - the friendliest dog we’ve met in Ecuador!
We loved it!
This property is an absolute paradise. The pictures can not truly depict how beautifully constructed the house is or how luxurious the grounds are. Marjorie and Nano were extremely gracious hosts and their property reflects how much love and care they put into all of the details. Both were so friendly and very helpful setting up tours. They also make a fantastic breakfast. The guided waterfall tour with Luis was a one of a kind adventure, not to be missed. I would highly recommend!!!
Ecuador/Mindo at its best
We stayed at La Lomita for just 18 days but we will keep it in mind as outstanding for the rest of our life. The whole property is created with detailed love but left naturally. There is a little sportsfield and a pool, a chill-out area with hammocks, lots of fantastic garden with many great plants (banana, papaya, cocoa, oranges, coffee and lots of other nice flowers). There are all kinds of birds around including Tucans and parrots. All is surrounded by rain forrest. We enjoyed walking to Mindo but you can do by Taxi as well. Lots of activities are nearby, or just enjoy the great nature. It is also a base for trips to Quito, the coast or other parts Ecuador. (You should take min 2 days for those trips).
The house is absolutely well equipped with all you need. Very cosy, awesome views from all rooms to the property and surrounding rain Forrest. Hot showers and plenty of room for all of us.
But one of the highlights of La Lomita is Nano, the owner. He is such a great guy. Always helpful with any kind of support but also a friend you just can talk with.
Thanks Nano, for a unbelievable time we had at La Lomita. And very best regards to your family, especially Penny.

Thank you Stefan for your kind words! I enjoyed you and your family as guests and would love to host you again anytime. You're a wonderful family 😊Thanks again.
Most unbelievable time in Mindo
There have already been so many great things said about this place and we agree with all of them. Nano and Marjorie use their gift of hospitality to the fullest. Thier love, joy and vision for this property shines through when they take the time to show you the entire grounds, including the pool area.
Although bird watching was not on our schedule you can't help but get into watching all the different kinds of birds right from the hammocks on the property.
Nano set up a wonderful chocolate tour with a friend of theirs. We actually made the chocolate from the cacoa bean to a delicious fondue in the end. That was a great experience.
Each morning Nano and Marjorie fixed a delicious spread for breakfast. It couldn't have been better. They were available when you need them whether it was needing a taxi or recommending a restaurant. We walked to town a couple times. Also walked to the butterfly sanctuary. Don't miss this!
The worst thing about this place is that we had to leave. I would recommend this property to anyone. Don't let living off the grid scare you, embrace it!!!
Thank you Candy and friends! You were lovely guests and we hope to see you again ;-)
Great week in Mindo...
We loved the house. We primarily visited Mindo during our Ecuador vacation to birdwatch. There were many new birds on the property, visible from the back room of the house. It was very peaceful and the breakfasts were delicious. Nano and Marjorie were delightful hosts.
Thank you Angie, Guy and family! We enjoyed your visit too and would love to have you back again anytime ;-)
