Hacienda San Juan de La Vega has been in my husband David´s family for about 20 years... We love our ranch dearly and in the last year or so we have really put a lot of love and joy into renovating our property. We currently have 2 of the 4 homes completely renovated. The first home (Casa Monica) that we renovated has been listed since January 2012 and our 2nd home (Casa Ana) which we finished renovating May 2012 is now also listed.

We've loved our rental experience, having many lovely families & couples visit for long month stays or just a quick long weekend / week visits.

We rented the whole property (3 houses with 3-4 rooms each) from saturday to sunday, for a Birthday Family & Friends celebration (20 people aprox). The houses were absolutely beautiful in design, top of the line furniture, high level rustic construction finishes, stunning decoration, excellent maintenance, immaculate spacious and comfortable rooms (5-star-hotel linens, duvet and towels), impeccable toilets and kitchen!!!....

Amazing setting. Houses are fantastic. Staff was attentive and helpful. Lots of extras are included. They don't nickel and dime you for anything. We are definitely going back!

I was looking for a special experience to offer to my family and particularly young children for their first visit to Ecuador. I wanted to share with them some of the moments and feelings I had when I was young in a few haciendas in Ecuador. Hacienda San Juan de la Vega exceeded my expectations, Janine, her husband and all...
