“The taxi drivers all know Loma Wasi - forget about the villiage bit - I think it is a mis-translation of spanish Villa. The house is built around a central courtyard in the Spanish Villa style. The delicious home cooking was great with local recipes, and there was never too little so you would have to watch your weight. It took a little time for my digestion to adapt to the nutrient-loaded food after a month of filling but not very nutritious food from restaurants in the city. One morning, the taxi driver forgot to take me to San Pedro, so my hostess guided me up the hill in half an hour - quicker than the taxi taking the long way - half a kilometer up. She said it is dangerous to walk there alone, but she had four dogs to accompany her back alone, and nobody would attack her with four dogs.”
Offering a large room with private bath and huge walk-in closet. This is a downstairs room. Enjoy an extremely quiet sleep on a comfortable queen-size bed. The private bathroom is equipped with bathtub or shower. Casa Orion is located in a very safe gated community. It is an easy 10 minute walk into town. We are located a block and a half from the bus line.
“Usually I prefer to have the whole place to myself, but in this case I am very glad I chose this private room for my stay in Cotacachi. The energy at Orion's house is wonderful. David is a great human being, his son Orion is just adorable. I've traveled quite a bit in these parts, and rarely do I meet someone who has so much to teach me about the region. David is happy to share his deep personal experience of Ecuador and Peru; he's given me very precise directions to get to local attractions by public transportation, and also to get around in Quito. The house is a 10 minute walk from the center of town, located in a very pleasant gated area with superb views of three volcanos. It's just a block away to catch a frequent local bus to the center of Otavalo in 15 minutes. The room is great, with all the amenities and nice touches. As a traveler, I particularly appreciated having a whole dressing room space and a bath tub. Not to mention a fireplace in the house, a fire pit and a comfortable hammock outside. Very highly recommended!”

“Cotacachi is a truly beautiful undiscovered town that I would recommend. If you plan on visiting, I highly recommend booking this apartment. You cannot be more centrally located than this — Located right in the central square. A hive of activity that enables you to get a real feel of this exiting town. The apartment is warm and furnished as well as you can expect. There is a spacious kitchen and lounge area with a small balcony overlooking the square. The WiFi is fast (I read this isn’t the norm in other areas) which for me was important as I needed fast internet access for work. Being centrally located, it is of course noisy during the day, though with the bedrooms being located at the back of the apartment, noise doesn’t disturb sleep if you need a afternoon nap. The main benefit of staying here is the value. The cost per night is astounding for such an apartment. A true mark of why AirBNB reigns supreme over hotels and other forms of holiday accommodation. This apartment was only available for the first two nights of my 19 day stay in Cotacachi. I met Louis and his daughter (who speaks fluent English) and discovered they also owned the duplicate apartment directly below (also listed here on AirBNB.. though harder to find appearing further down the list). I immediately booked 17 nights to cover the rest of my stay. I am writing this review from that apartment. Perfect for my needs in every way.”
