Casa Kiliku - Suit La Palma special discounts for long stays!
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. 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.

Casa Kiliku is very well designed in the organic and handmade way that I like. The room I stayed is (Casa Palma) is next to the Yoga room and overlooks a nice part of the garden. It is that kind of experience which is not based on unnecessary material opulence but on thoughtful details and warm human presence. Iris, David and Daniella, the people running the place are wonderful, warm, creative people, thoughtful of their guests and I think of them as friends by now. For me it's just right and it is the experience I would highly recommend to friends and all like-minded people.

This is realy one of the best places you can stay closed to Quito.
Its quite and natural, closed to the city while its closed to the nature! Its surrounded by a fantastic view and it gives space for what ever you might imagine! By the way you will be more than impressed by the harmonic architechture.
This house let you feel home as its so cozy and spacious in one!
