“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.”
Fully furnished house, good WIFI, hot water with great pressure , hammocks, complete kitchen and accessories. Large balcony with patio that extends onto 2000m². Located about 10-15 min walk away from the town of Montanita, its beach and surfpoints.
“Everything was as good or better than advertised! Super close to all the good stuff but far enough away that we weren't bothered by all the partying at night. Genevieve was a very gracious and flexible host. She made us feel very welcomed and was super understanding with a few mishaps we had on our end with travel plans. Great communication and truly a great place to stay. We would recommend Pachamar to anyone staying in Moñtanita.”
English: Just a few meters from downtown Montañita, Chill Out House, is an adorable house located right in front of the beach, surrounded by a garden of sand, palms and coconut trees with a spectacular view of the sunsets. Español: A solo unos metros del centro de Montañita, Chill Out House, es una adorable casa ubicada justo en frente a la playa, rodeada de un jardín de arena, palmas y cocoteros con una espectacular vista de los atarceres.
“Yula and Mario’s Chill House in Montanita is an amazing place to stay. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone traveling to Montanita. The place itself is only a short walk away from the town center where all the dining and clubs are located. The place also has its own private beach with shady trees and hammocks to hang out in. The food was AMAZING (I highly highly recommend the arepas for breakfast). Yula and Mario were both very easy to communicate with and helped us plan tours and provided us with extra things when we asked for them. Would definitely stay here again!”
