Casa Kiliku - between Quito and the airport

  • 2 bedrooms
  • 1 bathroom

Description

The Kiliku is a little hawk living here on our volcano, the Ilalo. For us he is the symbol of freedom and as he is seeing the reality from high above, it means that our place helps give its visitors an overview of the Ecuadorian reality as a traveller, or for one who is just arriving in the country and prepares for a long time stay. The spectacular view can also help to inspire creativity and to develop projects of any kind, enjoying our green garden surrounding with flowers and old trees

Casa Kiliku is a place created by artists alternative therapists. The houses are built by materials from our volcano, with bricks or adobe and wood. Every space is unique: you can enjoy living in the Andes in “The Tower”, in “The Palm Suite”, the big “Star house” or in the little “Garden House”. You can participate in dance or yoga classes in the Sala Kiliku or give a workshop yourself. You can stay on the big terrace and chat with other guests who are staying here. Or just lie in the hammock and read or meditate on treetops dancing in the wind

For us it is pure luxury, to live in a rural environment at the edge of the ecological reserve Ilalo and so close to the centre of Quito, 25 minutes by car. The taxi costs 15 dollar, and the little village bus, which takes a little longer, stops in front of our door. The new airport, too, you reach in 25-45 minutes, depending on the traffic

We love to share our paradise, where we are living and creating films, radio plays, articles or compositions the last 19 years. Close by there are places where the national and international community mingles, like the "Café Mare" or the "Bio Market". Here you buy organic food and German bread, having a coffee and a chat or enjoy story telling or a concert. All this places like to receive families with children, too. So not to forget, that in walking distance there is the alternative Kindergarten, School and Collegio Pachamama

Just three km down the road in Tumbaco, you find everything you need: local shops, banks and shopping malls
