“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.”
Small cottage"La Casita"in private property overlooking the Ocean on the most beautiful beach of Ecuador, perfect for couples, quiet, private, safe. Five minutes walk to the beach. six kilometers from famous surf break of Montañita and minutes from Machalilla National Park, perfect location to explore the coast.
“This a wonderful family compound a bit up in the hills from the beach with beautiful views from inside and on the patios. It is well equipped, and the family and their workers are very helpful and friendly. Our host Bernardo was responsive and helpful. The trade off for the views is that it is about a 5-10 minute walk down to the beach, which is expansive, quiet, and beautiful. Also, it is about a 45 minute walk down the beach to Olon. Having a car is handy, otherwise there are buses and taxis. It's a tranquil, and beautiful place on the coast with two nearby towns with good food, shopping and some nightlife.”

“* If you speak English see below * We really enjoyed our stay at Olón. The house was very nice, clean and safe with everything we needed. The only thing is that we thought it was closer to the ocean. Actually, we had to take a taxi every time we wanted to leave home or walk on a little dangerous road. By the way, it's a good place. Maybe it would be better for family to come with your car. Or people who want to spend time where the house is located (there is a pool, a restaurant, yoga classes etc). We were there to surf, spend time on the beach and go out at night. So for us something a little closer would have worked better. We really enjoyed our stay in Olón. The house was beautiful, clean and safe and had everything that we needed. The only thing is that we thought it was closer to the ocean. In reality, we had to take a taxi every time we wanted to leave the house (only $ 1.50) or walk on a road that was a little dangerous. Certainly, it's a great place. It might be better for a family who came in their own car or people who would enjoy spending time in the little community where the house is. (There is a pool, a restaurant, yoga classes etc). We were there to surf, spend time on the beach and go out at night. So, for us, something a little closer would have been better.”
