Lush ORGANIC Gardens, Spectacular Views, and Beautifully Designed Homes on 2 Hectares
This 2-hectare (4.9-acre) property is located in San Pedro de Vilcabamba, a small town just 5 minutes away from Vilcabamba. There are 3 houses on this property, organic gardens, mature fruit trees, a natural pool, beautiful views, and space for future projects all on this sweet property!
The main house is 2 stories and consists of 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths and ample livings areas – both indoor and outdoor. The first floor has a large master bedroom, 2 smaller bedrooms, and a large bathroom with a shower and bathtub. Bathtubs are not common in houses here in Ecuador so this is a huge bonus! There is a spacious open-concept kitchen and living area. Just outside of the living area is a covered patio area for eating outside or simply enjoying the peaceful amazing mountain and garden views.
Going up to the second floor via a separate outdoor entrance you find yourself in a huge open room with pine wood floors, beautiful wood walls and beams. This wood texture gives the home a warm and inviting feel. There is a kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom on this second story. The huge picture windows bring in plenty of natural light and take advantage of the views. Additionally, there is a lovely covered patio where you can enjoy spectacular views of the Andes mountains. Since this floor has a separate entrance, you could rent this out as an apartment. Or, you could also use the large room to host yoga lessons, dance sessions, or other gatherings.
The views from the main house are marvelous – you can see Vilcabamba’s Mandango mountain, endless Andes mountains, and Vilcabamba in the valley below.
Next to the main house, there is a 1-car garage and a laundry room. Just down the hill from the main house is a natural swimming pool. It does need some repairs to get it working properly.
There is a two-story, 2-bedroom, 2-bath home in the lower section of the property. The main floor offers an open concept between the kitchen, dining, and living areas with plenty of natural lighting from the large windows. Outside there is a spacious covered patio surrounded by lovely gardens. On the second floor there are 2 bedrooms with windows as well, creating more natural lighting.
In the middle of this property, there is a guest house which would be ideal as a caretaker house or as an additional rental opportunity. The guest house has two structures - one has structure has a bedroom with a loft and then the other structure has the kitchen. There is an outdoor shower and outdoor composting toilet. Depending on how you like things, it might need some updates to make it nicer.
The owners of this property have made a point to keep the land organic and have not used pesticides or herbicides on this property. Therefore, the soil is pure and some of the best in the area!

This property is hooked up to San Pedro’s irrigation canal water system, so you can water your plants with this water. The main house is hooked up to potable water too. Both the canal and potable water come from a clean river originating in the Podocarpus National Park mountains.
There are flat areas where you can build additional houses or create more gardens.
This property has two entrances: an upper entrance near the main house and a lower entrance near the guest house. Both entrances come out on the same paved road and it is just a short 2-minute drive to San Pedro or a 5-minute drive to Vilcabamba.
