“Home Away from Home - hospitality beyond what you can ever imagine”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We stayed at the Casa de Arte Puembo in January 2014 - like many - we needed a place close to the airport for nearly 2 days prior to our flight home. We got SO much more than we could have every expected! The owners, Viviana and Danilo, immediately treated us like family. We felt like we were coming to OUR home! They had such a special gift of engaging us and inviting us to feel comfortable. We had invited some local Ecuadorian friends from Quito to meet us at their Casa for dinner prior to our departure - and when they got lost on the way, Danilo actually went out in his truck and found them. Talk about kindness! Viviana took time to cook a special dinner for us and our friends - and she made a ridiculously delicious meal. We eat gluten free and she and Danilo accommodated us with ease and they made it all look so easy.
Their home is a masterpiece - a beautiful, vibrant yet quiet space that screams harmony and peace, very much a reflection of Viviana and Danilo's personalities. Danilo's art is abundant throughout the space and Viviana's touches are very apparent too. The guest rooms are clean and very comfortable/cozy. The property is beautiful - with countless organic fruits/veggies growing and ready to be picked. While you'd need a very hot day to swim in the pool, it still provides a beautiful and peaceful place to relax.
We had a restful sleep and the next day ate a marvelous breakfast. Danilo and Viviana offered to have Danilo accompany us on a hike along the old railroad track - and he spent 5 hours showing us around during the hike, which was easily a highlight of our 2 month stay in Ecuador. There really aren't words to describe how naturally kind and generous Viviana and Danilo are. They truly went "above and beyond" in every possible way. Just when I thought we had already met the kindest people in Ecuador, we came across the Casa de Arte Puembo!
Not only is Casa de Arte ideal for those who are in need of accommodation from the airport, it is a space that one can go to simply relax and reflect. I also see it as an ideal option for writers who are looking for a peaceful place to write and to feel inspired. It is a mere 15 - 20 minutes from the airport - ideal for travelers - but more importantly, it is a place that you will dream about returning to because it simply feels like a home away from home that your cousin or sister/brother owns - where you can get a hug, have a great meal, relax, see beautiful art and just BE. I'm so grateful that a friend told us about this place. We cannot say enough about how magical our 2 days there was! Gracias a Viviana y Danilo! Abrazos!

Super convenient location, 10 minutes from airport,the house has one of a kind architecture with orchards on the property! Breakfast is included which is a bonus and if you are into art both owners are really talented artists and the house doubles as a gallery. We had a flight problem and had to stay another night and they were so accommodating to all our needs.
