There are two villas available and each one can accommodate ideally 2 guests (a maximum of 3). Finca Sauipe is nestled in a subtropical rainforest at 3900 feet above sea level on a 7 acre farm that includes two man-made ponds, lush gardens and trails. The Alambi river is only 160 meters from the villas so the constant sounds of water hitting large rocks is a background melody. We have made this weekend farm into our sanctuary. Now we are opening it up to guests and sharing this very private space for others to also enjoy the tranquility and weather.
The villas include 1 king sized bed with luxury linens, one twin size sofa which doubles as a bed. There is a 32" flat screen TV with Direct TV, floor to ceiling windows which provide a 180 degree view, black out curtains provide privacy and the possibility of sleeping in! There is also a floor fan for your convenience. The bathroom is equipped with a large shower head, perfect for enjoying the abundance of water, soft, fluffy towels, basic toiletries a small fridge with drinks and snacks, and lots of counter space for your belongings.
Guests will have access to the entire farm except the main house (the owners' home).
The outdoor kitchen area under a large pergola offers a great socializing space and can seat up to 12 people at the table. It is fully equipped.
There are a few activities which may be of interest and are listed below. You may wish to join in the farm's daily activities along with us, maybe take a walk on small trails around the farm or simply lie down and relax on your luxury bed and villa, read, or just enjoy the view.
There are also some activities for the more adventurous and we will provide transportation to these places if needed. Some of these places require a small fee to enjoy the trails and if a guide is needed that is an additional cost as well.
Piragua Waterfall (7 km)
Maquipucuna Ecological Reserve (3.5 km) – several trails
Santa Lucia Reserve and Eco-lodge guided hike (2 km hike uphill to see a 360 degree view)
Mindo (30 min drive)
Trout fishing (15 min drive)
Interaction with Guests
We will be at the farm the entire time our guests are there. We also have a caretaker and his wife who live on the property.
If you have selected the all-inclusive package with three meals a day and snacks, we will be the ones doing the cooking!
If you select the basic package in which you bring your own food to cook, we will still be around if you need any help.
It is difficult to believe that Finca Sauipe is only about 30 miles from Quito. Nanegalito and Nanegal are both very small towns. Finca Sauipe is located right in the middle of these two towns surrounded by mountains. It sits on the outskirts of the Humid Tropic Forest Reserve Maquipucuna.
You can get to Nanegalito from Quito by bus, taxi or private transportation (which we can help arrange if necessary). If you rent your own car, this will make it easier for you to visit near-by attractions at your own pace and time.
