Our cute "cabaña morada" is a sweet little building made out of adobe (= earth bricks) nested in the green soothing geography of Vilcabamba's mountains.
It comprises of one comfortable bedroom/living area, kitchen, bathroom with hot shower 24hrs, a covered patio surrounded by a blooming garden with wonderful views of the valley of Vilcabamba.
Our coffee plantation lies just next to it and fruit trees and bananas plants are everywhere!
Located 12 mins drive from the town centre (or a $6 taxi ride) the Cabaña Morada would suit couples, nature lovers, hikers, people who enjoy peace and the joys of country living.
Wireless internet is included.

We love getting to know new people and hear their stories but also appreciate that our cabin suit peace seekers who might desire total privacy and isolation so we live it up to our guests if they fancy joining us for a coffee or a walk or just be left alone.
Stock up on food on your way up as there aren't any shops up here. We provide you with the basic salt/pepper/sugar and drinking water. (our tap water comes directly from the lakes of the Podocarpus National Park, however we supply a five gallons purified water bottle for those who refuse to drink tap water in South America)

My husband and I are an Italian-Irish mix. We set off from London in 2010 with a plan of traveling South America in our backpack. A year later we ended up embracing a rural life in Vilcabamba,Ecuador.
We bought land, built our house and the dwelling you'll be living at, and planted over 500 coffee plants in the hope to pursue our coffee production dream.
We have one primadonna cat named Luigi and a loyal guardian dog called T-Man and a copper rooster, George, always sitting on the roof of our house. We also have a real rooster called Gustavo who roams proudly with his ten hens.
We are friendly and open-minded,
We love: new cultures, old furniture, red wine, strong coffee, the sound of humming birds, the spanish word for purring (=ronronear)
We don't love: selfishness, holes in socks, overcooked pasta, blockbuster movies, 80's music.
