Elegant Homes in Private Ecological Property

Ecollacta has been described as a paradise by everyone who has visited it.

Please visit www.ecollacta.com

Located in the famous Mindo's Bird Watching Region of Ecuador, Ecollacta is a unique 95-hectare property with over 240 bird species, a pure-spring private river inside the property.

Ideal for short-term or long-term visits to relax away from civilization while only at 2h drive from Quito, it offers a peaceful and private stay in the Andes Mountains in the comfort of 2 large elegant homes with 360° views over the cloud forest.

The 230 acres (95 hectares) property is located less than 2 hours drive North-West of Quito, in the well-known birds region of Mindo, passing by the Equatorial line and enjoying a spectacular ride through the Andes Mountains.

It shares a mile long (1.6 km) river border with the Maquipucuna Reserve.

Both houses are built mainly with wood, which gives them the aspect of chalets. There are 300 sqm and 200 sqm.

The houses can be rented together or single handedly.

Each house has a capacity for 6 guests. Each of them has 2 bedrooms with queen beds, and their private bathrooms. They also each have 2 additional single beds in the upper deck areas, as well as a half-bathroom.

The total capacity is for 13 guests (including children of all ages).

Guest houses are located at the center of the property, at the top of a hill, and are separated by a 40 m (130 feet) walkway.

This unique location in the property and the houses architecture have the privilege to permit visitors to enjoy 360 degrees breathtaking views over the mountains, the forest, and the rivers. It also allows birdwatching from anywhere inside the houses and from their terraces.
