  • Exactly What You're Looking For!

    "What type of vacation meets you needs? Do you want a private, peaceful retreat where you can focus on the deep blue sea? Are you adventurous and want to explore all that coastal Ecuador has to offer? Party animal? Foody? Yoga buff? All of these types of vacations (and more) can be found at Bob and Roxanne's lovely rental. My husband and I stayed in the Alta suite for two weeks in June. As previous reviewers have noted, the suite has all your needs. It is clean, well designed, and if you can pull yourself away from the perfect ocean view, cooking in the well stocked kitchen was a delight as we watched the spectacular sunsets each evening. The bed was comfortable, and we kept the windows constantly open to hear the crashing waves and feel the constant ocean breeze. We were never hot, and there were no bugs. The beach is clean, private and large. We walked every morning and usually saw only a handful of people on our walks. But the most important detail that is included in this vacation rental is the expertise and connection with Bob and Roxanne. They are both highly sensitive to your vacation needs. They seem to know when you need a ride somewhere, and can help you with taxis or buses, or when you may need to be left alone. They were so kind and their knowledge of Ecuador was invaluable to us. The minute I asked about where to purchase a panama hat for my husband, Bob immediately offered to take us to the next town the following day. Bill now has a snappy new panama hat! Montantita is a close walk and has many nice restaurants. We visited several coastal towns and enjoyed museums, aquariums, restaurants, and a tour package to Isla de la Plata. We actually got to see several whales on one of our tours and snorkled with sea turtles! The people of Ecuador were friendly and kind. Many tried to help us with our minimal knowledge of their language, and we got along fine with our broken Spanish. My husband and I always felt safe as we traveled around. We never saw any panhandlers or people who pushed you to buy their tourist treasures. The locals really appreciate your business. Whatever you are looking for in a vacation, staying with Bob and Roxanne is a great home base. Thanks to Bob and Roxanne's kind hospitality, we experienced the vacation of a lifetime. We will return to Ecuador again, and we will stay with Bob and Roxanne again as well."

  • A fantastic experience staying in a Andean Villa with breathtaking veiws.

    "The 4 Volcanoes Villa was wonderful!!! We stayed (6 of us) for 10 days and never tired of the wonderful, ever changing views of the volcanoes from every vantage point in this open, spacious and Fung Shui home. The best part was the huge indoor fireplaces with a plentiful supply of the best smelling firewood, that we had burning nightly in the month of June. The climate is cool and what a treat to be able to enjoy this as well as the Jacuzzi, filled up and ready to relax in, at your request. The glass floor to ceiling windows and doors can be opened up completely, to give the feel of being totally outdoors. We enjoyed soft comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen, ample reading material and a huge dining table for the meals we prepared or had cooked for us by the hired cook. The walk into the village is easy and very safe, the bus to Otavalo comes directly in front of the gated entrance for 35 cents. The buses are modern, clean and safe to ride. The Villa is exactly as described in the listing, and is immaculately maintained. A cleaning woman is available if you want or need, during your stay. There is no television (not needed) or music system, so if you want music, bring something portable . We did not get to meet Thomas Ring, who was away at the time of our stay, we were greeted and assisted with all of our needs by Christina, his wife, who was always there on site in their separate home, and 100% helpful. (Things to be aware of that certainly were not negatives but just part of the way of life in Ecuador, be patient with your needs for a HOT shower, this may be inconsistent due to the plumbing (gas and solar power), and toilets do not accept flushing paper.) We stayed during the Inti Raymi Festival of the Sun, and I can still hear the wonderful musical sounds of the panpipes coming from the surrounding Andes mountains villages throughout the evening and into the night, into the villa with the windows open, and see the locals dancing through the narrow streets, and only wish I was still there. This is a truely wonderful home and location."
