“Christmas Enchantment”
Reviewed March 16, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

My family and I, first time visitors to SA and Ecuador, arrived Christmas night after our days in the Amazon, to a stunning hacienda, ablaze in lights, warmed with fireplaces, and greeted by Patricio and the rest of the staff. A wonderful dinner prepared by the staff was soon waiting for us on the table. The house, its furnishings, bedding, bathrooms,kitchen appointments, staff, and comforts are top tier and will please even the most discerning traveller. The valley that the hacienda sits in feels like an emerald green Shangri-La and I regret not having an additional day in my itinerary to just stay put. The added bonus of the house is the owner, Janine, who ever so patiently responded to my voluminous emails, and worked with me to set up a very busy itinerary for visiting the local sights. Her attention to detail was appreciated and followup during our stay was invaluable. The house, the staff, the location, and the owner combine to put Hacienda San Juan de la Vega as one of the very best rental experiences one could ask for.

“Phenomenal stay!”
Reviewed February 27, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

My group of 6 had an incredible weekend at San Juan de la Vega! We were blown away by every detail. From the ridiculously beautiful house to the picturesque scenery with flowers galore - everything about this visit exceeded our expectations. Also, the kind staff not only organize your activities (milking cows, horseback riding, cheese making), but also build fires each night and help do dishes - both are very, very appreciated! I am so thankful to have found this gem and plan on returning as soon as possible.

It´s the best place ever to stay if you have kids or only adults. There are a lot of things to do, and it´s teh best place to relax from the city and really have peace. Go, visit, relax, have fun and enjoy family time and nature!!!

“Favorite place to stay”
Reviewed December 28, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

If you are looking for a beautiful, quite and with a great location look no further. This is one of our favorite places to stay while up north. Great for families and large or small groups. The houses have everything you will need and more. The owners are also so very nice and personable. We can't go to Ecuador without staying at SanJuan de La Vega

Liked best: Location, It is off the road nestled in a valley so there are great places to take long walks
Liked least: The road up to the farm is a bit rustic, but adds to the charm.

“Beautiful and friendly place”
Reviewed May 15, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My friends and I just got back from an incredible 2-nignt stay at Hacienda San Juan de la Vega. This beautiful place located near to the lake “San Pablo”, is one of the most beautiful places I have ever known in the Province of Imbabura. The house called Ana was very comfortable and cozy. We enjoyed very much riding horses, milking a cow and picking vegetables from the organic garden. The hospitality of all the staff was amazing. I highly recommend this nice place to visit with friends or family.
