Property description

You are invited to come stay at CASA MONICA, one of 4 lovely villas located on our ranch, 'Hacienda San Juan de La Vega' offering all the comforts of a beautiful B&B 10min form San Pablo del Lago neighboring Otavalo, in the province of Imbabura, Ecuador. This majestic hacienda (40+ hectares/100 acres) is located at the end of a long Andean valley with a stream flowing through its green pastures. Along the stream you will find pools that are perfect for taking a little swim if you dare…the water is a bit chilly; however, our nieces and nephews love this outdoor pastime.

A perfect retreat from wherever you find yourself at this moment… into a serene nature filled environment.

We have an organic garden & a free-range chicken coop! You are welcome to harvest from our garden & enjoy our fresh eggs! If you are a garden lover you are also welcome to work in our garden, which is my personal favorite pastime. For those of you who enjoy HIKING or HORSEBACK RIDING, just step outside, there are amazing views, trails & waterfalls to be discovered in the surrounding mountainside. We also offer horse drawn hayrides for adults and children alike! It just a lot of fun.


CASA MONICA is one of 2 homes that we have available for rent. You may view CASA ANA our 2nd home available for rent on http://www.vrbo.com/424116

This Ecuadorian adventure is perfect for those of you who are interested in discovering Otavalo (the largest pre-Incan market in South America), Cotacachi(known for its incredible handmade leather goods), Cuicocha (a beautiful lake in the crater of an old volcano), el Cayambe & el Imbabura (volcanic peaks with picturesque views and great hiking). These are five of the most sought after tourist attractions in the Ecuadorian Andes. Our hacienda, “San Juan de La Vega,” is located within a 20 to 30 minute drive from these tourist hotspots. San Pablo del Lago is a local weekend getaway spot for Ecuadorians interested in aquatic sports and local cuisine.

You will be staying in one of the homes on our hacienda, which we love and care for dearly. Our homes are available for those of you who are currently living in Ecuador and would like to take some time to discover this area, and also those of you who are considering moving to Ecuador and want a home-base and not a hotel as you discover the surrounding region. If you are simply looking for a great vacation you will definitely enjoy your stay with us!!! Please do come!

At Hacienda San Juan de La Vega, you will be well taken care of by one of our friendly housekeepers. Please see our rates/packages to see what all can be included! We are happy to accommodate your needs! We have a great kitchen especially if you love to cook! You can prepare your own meals or we can arrange a cook to be available!

Feel free to contact us via email or phone... we look forward to making your stay all that you would love it to be!

If you have not heard back from us within 24 hours PLEASE EMAIL US DIRECTLY at: ugaldejanine@

Our ranch is truly a wonderful place to stay, the fresh mountain air and a dip in our river pool will leave you feeling invigorated! I am originally from the Northern Virginia/D.C. area and have been living in Ecuador for the last 6 years. I must say if I could I would spend all of my time on our ranch; however I live in Quito with my husband, which is also a wonderful place! We generally get down to the ranch most weekends and stay in one of our other homes on the property so we are available if you need us.


Most likely you will not want to leave OUR REALITY… so you are welcome to stay! Enjoy and have a wonderful time during your stay with us!

A little slice of heaven! Come discover it for yourself, you will not want to leave.

We are surrounded by majestic volcanic peaks (all extinct), spectacular views, and fun tourist activities/adventures.

This is a perfect retreat for a group of friends looking to getaway for a long weekend or a family getaway looking for incredible memories. We have also had more than one family visit at a time, which we highly recommended! You will take with you memories that will last a lifetime! Priceless!

We are located 2,600m high in the northern Andes Mountains of Ecuador, near the rural village of San Pablo del Lago. We are 1hr and 30min from the Quito International Airport. As you enter and exit our ranch you will experience moments in which you feel like you have traveled back in time... Shepherds still walk their sheep to graze in the communal pastures... picturesque!

If you are in the mood to dine out we have 3 great hotels within a 5 to 10min drive of our property.

Come visit! We are sure that you will love this vacation experience!

 

Owner info

About the owner: Both my husband and I just love our Hacienda San Juan de La Vega. We have put a lot of love and TLC in to developing our property and it is truly a joy to share it with our guest. We like to call this our long term retirement project... There is a lot to keep us entertained for several years to come...

Why the Owner Chose Otavalo:
Hacienda San Juan de La Vega has been in my husbands family for about 20 years. It is truly a very unique and special location that has been fun to develop. It's a magical place where memories are made and shared for a lifetime.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We were inspired to embark on this creative venture to enable families to experience the joy of the past when life was not so rushed and things where just a little more simple. Like my husband likes to say we provide the canvas and you get to create your own experience! It really is a lot of fun! Contact us and we would be happy to send you a quote detailing all that your visit will include.
