Your 'backyard' will be a 3,200 meter high extinct volcano. You may choose to explore Ecuador from this perfect base or just stay home and hike back in time, through fields still farmed by hand, to the summit of Ilaló.

It was an honor to have you stay at Casa Ilalo. I am really glad you enjoyed your time there. You would love the new solar refrigerator/freezer. The photovoltaic system is working so well, off-grid ice-cream is now on the menu! Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and I hope you come back to visit one day.

"Fantastic location, architecture, view, owners!"
We stayed in Mr. Pena's mountainside "perch" for a year, it was the favorite place we have ever lived. Mr. Pena is a wonderfully creative and "organic" architect, and he has created the most wonderful… More
We loved having you there in the 'perch'. With the new highway below finished and open, you would not believe how easy it is to get around: 15 minutes to Quito or in the other direction, the airport! Tumbaco is transformed.
The garden you helped begin is flourishing; the whole house is scented with jasmine.
Thanks for your wonderful review of Casa Ilalo. We hope you come back soon.

Hi Gerald, I am sorry you had so many issues. I have a new manager that speaks English and will be able to communicate with clients that don't speak any Spanish. Also related to the Internet, that will be on continuous , so hopefully that will solve that issue. Really nothing I can do about dogs outside of development or the biting flys. Related to the gunshots , our guards are extremely safe conscious and if they hear something out of ordinary they will fire a gun shot in up in the air.
You are right it is beautiful here, and the views are great, the people are sweet and kind. The cost of living is about 25% of the cost in the USA if you can adjust to not having everything perfect. But if relocating keep in mine it is very different than living in the USA. If your just vacationing here, it is a wonderful experience.
