La casa KoKopelli is a charming oceanfront house in a quiet area close to nature. A perfect place to relax. The beach of Capaes is a beach little frequented and which proposes a nice spot of surf during the good season. The room is small but comfortable. Attention, height under ceiling of 185 cm, not suitable for people of large size!
“Wonderful place to stay, relaxed beach and 20 min walk to Ballenita. Beautiful house, Marie-Charlotte made you feel like at home and had great tips for our further travel. A highly recommendable paradise-like home away from home. We would always come back, thank you so much!!”
Looking for a place to call home for a while? Need a place to work and enjoy life? Have you been dreaming about having your own kitchen, warm water in a peaceful neighborhood all for yourself? This might be the perfect apartment for you! Your home will be only a few minutes walking away from the from the beach and 5 minute by taxi or bus from famous Montañita. The ideal mix of living the local Ecuadorian life style and occasionally rocking out the dancing shoes (flip-flops) in Montanita!
“Liliana and Gijs’s place is a little gem. We stayed with them for about a week and got to talk to them a couple of times. They truly love hosting their guests and they have put a lot of thought into providing a wonderful airbnb experience. Manglaralto is a tiny spot three minutes from Montañita. Liliana and Gijs have built their airbnb on a stretch of land where there’s local residents and small neighborhood stores. Manglaralto is a semi-rural area and having the opportunity of interacting with long-term residents is something that you wouldn’t get if you stayed in tourist-crowded Montañita. El Cielo is a one-bedroom, one-bath, and open layout living space. There’s three more units at this location, two on each level. It’s well appointed and it has custom-made cabinetry that adds an earthy tone and feeling to the space. The kitchen is spacious and it is equipped for basic cooking needs. We enjoyed the blender (lots of fresh fruit to play with). Of course, Liliana, Gijs, and Mariana, who is responsible for cleaning, keep El Cielo in impeccable condition. This is customary for most reliable airbnb properties. However, what they do differently is making their guests feel that they care and that they are invested in their guests having a meaningful and pleasant stay at their place. One of us is legally blind and Liliana and Gijs accommodated our needs. They even helped us get medical care through a personal contact at a nearby medical practice. We would definitely come back and recommend their place to any and everyone. It was a pleasure staying at El Cielo and counting on Liliana and Gijs as hosts. It was also beautiful to witness how much they are doing for a community they call home.”

“I can't say enough nice things about Casa Blanca! My room was beautifully decorated, and had more than everything I could possibly need, including cooking supplies, a stove top, and a fridge. I loved falling asleep to the sound of rolling waves. The property's grounds are spacious and spotless, with a crystal-clear swimming pool and dozens of chairs, benches, and hammocks to relax on. The scrumptious and huge breakfasts I enjoyed every morning were a wonderful way to start the day. Randy and Dodie are truly lovely and talented hosts who have created a tranquil paradise here.”
