Las Cabañas or home stay

”A quiet oasis in paradise”

We have accommodation especially for our students- The Cabañas. An Oasis of tranquility located just 5 minutes walk from the school, 3 minutes from the centre of town, and 2 minutes from the beach. Nestled into the relaxed atmosphere of ‘Barrio Tigrillo’ these Cabañas provide the best of both worlds, being moments away from the centre of the action and providing the peace and tranquility needed to make the most of your time in Montañita.

Our Eco Cabanas are very spacious and come equipped with a private en suite, large bed, hammocks and a fan. Just outside the door of your Cabaña you will find a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, large communal kitchen and a large sitting area with TV and DVD.

The Cabañas are an all-round great place. I feel totally comfortable in Montañita’ Rens

We have made a big effort to be environmentally aware including much of our building materials. We recycle plastic and glass as well us using a compost system and recycled water in order to feed and fertilise our large and growing garden with an abundance of flora including herbs, flowers, fruits and vegetables.

Prices include bed linen and blankets, with towels available for hire in exchange for a $10 deposit.
Our accommodation has the perfect combination of a friendly and luxurious environment in a quiet location.

The staff, especially the cleaners at the Cabañas, are amazing. I cannot praise them highly enough, they do a great job and are super happy and smiley everyday.’ Naiomi

Private Cabanas
Staying true to the Rustic look of Montañita, these cabanas were constructed with the environment in mind. With bamboo construction and thatched roofs you will really feel like you are on holiday. Each cabana is furnished with a private bathroom, and are the perfect option for a couple or friends travelling together (Matrimonial and separate beds available)

Private Cabaña with kitchen
We have two cabañas that are a little larger than the rest and are equipped with a small kitchen. These tastefully decorated rooms are the cream of the crop and are perfect for a couple wishing to do their own cooking in private.

Shared Mini Dorm
This is the perfect option for those looking to for high quality accommodation on a budget. Keeping true to the rustic look of Montañita, our dorm rooms are all large and spacious allowing you to soak up the peaceful ambiance while saving those hard earned $$. With the options of either 6 bed or 4 bed dorms you will not have problem maintaining some personal privacy.

Home Stay
Your Ecuadorian host family gives you the opportunity to be fully immersed in the Ecuadorian lifestyle. While settling in and learning a new language can be hard when you arrive in a foreign country, having the support of a local family and a connection to the local community can make all the difference.

At your home stay in Montañita you will experience warm hospitality, helping you adjust quickly to your new surroundings. This priceless experience of being treated as a family member from day one has often been described as one of the highlights of a student’s trip, not only because of the rapid improvement in their Spanish skills, but also the homey feeling, the great food and the lifelong connections they made.

The family is very kind, especially the mom. She has welcomed me with open arms, taken care of me when I was sick with her constant smile!’ Cassandra 25 Canada

All our home stay families are located in the centre of Montañita, no more than 10 minutes walking distance from our school. Since it is our responsibility to make sure you are placed in a safe, clean and friendly environment, we carefully choose our families to ensure you get the best possible experience.

You will have a private room with a double bed, mosquito net, a small desk, a fan and a small set of drawers. Some rooms come with private bathrooms others share bathrooms with other students. Hot water can’t be guaranteed, and the families do not have wifi. If you are travelling with a friend, you can both live with the same family since they can receive up to two students at the same time. Meals will be Ecuadorian style and the families will do their best to satisfy special dietary requirements, as both breakfast and dinner are provided.
