Casa KoKopelli - habitación

La casa KoKopelli is a charming oceanfront house in a quiet area close to nature. A perfect place to relax. The beach of Capaes is a beach little frequented and which proposes a nice spot of surf during the good season. The room is small but comfortable. Attention, height under ceiling of 185 cm, not suitable for people of large size!

What guests are saying:

“Wonderful place to stay, relaxed beach and 20 min walk to Ballenita. Beautiful house, Marie-Charlotte made you feel like at home and had great tips for our further travel. A highly recommendable paradise-like home away from home. We would always come back, thank you so much!!”

Tranquil & modern home | footsteps away from beach

Looking for a place to call home for a while? Need a place to work and enjoy life? Have you been dreaming about having your own kitchen, warm water in a peaceful neighborhood all for yourself? This might be the perfect apartment for you! Your home will be only a few minutes walking away from the from the beach and 5 minute by taxi or bus from famous Montañita. The ideal mix of living the local Ecuadorian life style and occasionally rocking out the dancing shoes (flip-flops) in Montanita!

What guests are saying:

“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.”

Waterfront View. Deluxe. Modern. Huge.

New huge appartment with an amazing view, from the 11th floor of a newly constructed building. It is located in the most demanded sector of Salinas. The beach in front is always free of people even in the most demanded season. There you can go for a surf in the best spot of the city or just use our big tent, table and chairs to hang around with your kids.

What guests are saying:

“Amira’s place was one of the top Airbnb’s I’ve ever stayed at. It was very clean and the views of the ocean and city were amazing. I felt like I could have just stayed at the Airbnb the entire time with how lovely it was! Location was walkable to many great restaurants and right by the beach. The building was very safe and the 24/7 doormen were very nice. Amira was very quick to respond and a great host. If we ever go back to Salinas we will 100% try to stay here again. I really can’t recommend this place enough!”
