These are hanging tents above the property, with heavenly views of the mountains. And the stars at night are exquisite. We're out in the country, 7 minutes taxi ride from town, so be sure to stock up on your goodies to eat! Use bath! Taxis$3

Le logement

The Cacoon hammock/tent is a hanging tent, keeping bugs and creepy-crawlers away!.

Guests have access to the bathroom in the cottage, the propane burners on the porch for cooking, the adobe oven, the coffee maker and teapot; the solar-powered shower, though not always hot, when reserved. Sign up for shower time!

Guests are left on their own, but I am present as needed to call taxis, find things to do, good restaurants to go to, massages, Reiki, Tai Chi or yoga classes.

It's so pretty here - endless breezes, warm weather and wonderful people. I have awesome, protective neighbors, friends and workers who surround the property, but let you be on your own to enjoy the seclusion of this property, just 6 minutes from downtown Vilcabamba.

There are taxis that will come to the door to get you - $2.50 if you call them, or 65 cents to go into town if you walk to the road and hail one. Also, buses from town can drop you off and pick you up anywhere on the road!

You can move your Cacoon to a different spot - way up high at the yoga platform, for spectacular views and wonderful breezes, or deep in the forest for the utmost privacy.

Clean water for drinking, camping. WiFi, ask Dorothy for details on use of bathroom, EXQUISITE views, fenced in, and gated with outdoor shower.

I leave guests alone, but am available to tell/show good restaurants, the best shops, hiking places, the National Forests, and to call taxis!

The neighbors are WONDERFUL! The neighborhood is quiet and feels incredibly safe. We all look out for each other. It is beautiful and lush.

Taxis are available, with ease. Ask Dorothy for phone numbers of cabs, or just go out to the main road and wait. (Taxi's pass by regularly) Buses also pass by on the Highway and will stop for passengers.

WiFi password available upon request. Electricity and running water. You can plug your laptops/phones in on the large gazebo, where the Cacoons live. There is a beautiful light fixture for nighttime use, too!

Accès des voyageurs

You can ask to use the shower and bathroom in the casita.There is not always hot water as it's dependent on the sun. There is a washer available and you can hang your clothes out on the line. Enjoy your breakfast on the patio.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I'd be glad to help you find walks, hikes, swimming areas, restaurants, horseback riding, etc....Just let me know how I can help!

Autres remarques

It can get windy up there in the cacoons. Let me know if you'd like them hung in another area!
We're out in the country, 7 minutes taxi ride from town, so be sure to stock up on your goodies to eat, meals you can cook; feel free to use the outdoor kitchen, the shower and bathroom when available; sometimes even the clothes washer! Beside bringing food to cook/eat, stock up on coins for the taxi rides. They don't often carry change more than a $5!


Règlement intérieur

Leave your cacoon clean and free of debris. Shake it out daily, and check the pockets for your valuables before you leave!

What an amazing place! Dorothy is an incredibly gracious host. I came here looking to recover from some arduous travels and couldn't have picked a better place. Easily my favourite place this trip. A gem for sure.

I spent two wonderful nights with Dorothy. Her home and land are absolutely magical, and she is an amazing host! Her main house, guest house and cacoons are impeccably clean and welcoming! Nestled in a quiet, safe setting, an 8 minute taxi drive ($2.50) from el centro, Dorothy shares the best that Vilcabamba has to offer! She is also the consummate host! Dorothy was so helpful with everything from restaurant and massage recommendations to hikes and horseback riding arrangements. She even whipped up amazing smoothies from fruits and veggies from her garden! Her generosity, coupled with the natural serenity, healthy setting, and access to beautiful walks, makes this home ideal lodging for the Ecuadorian explorer. It was an absolute dream trip spending two days at Dorothy's home. I give this AirBnb site the very highest recommendations(URL HIDDEN) MT. Ellen

Dorothy is an excellent host and staying on her property was an amazing experience. She was quite welcoming. She consistently offered me fresh fruit from her property and even made us a large plate of gourmet cookies! The property itself is peaceful and surrounded by nature, being about a seven minute drive from Vilcabamba. This is definitely an advantage. The cocoons themselves are a unique experience and sleep comfortably. In the evenings and mornings, you will be surrounded by the sounds of nature! Additionally, Dorothy has a really friendly German Shepherd dog named Tiko. He loves to play! I would absolutely recommend staying with Dorothy in Vilcabamba.

I have nothing bad to say about Dorothy. She loves her place, she loves to have people at her place and she has an amazing dog as well. If you to relax and take it easy, you are at the right place. I don't know what to say more, everything is perfect there and I've had no problem with anything.
