Your Personal Retreat

When you visit QUINTA Oasis you come to our home.

We host individuals and wellness groups specifically for the purpose of your spiritual and personal development. You work and live with two masterful facilitators of evolution while enjoying everything the beautiful coast of Ecuador has to offer.

What is a "Quinta"? 

A Quinta is a private property sharing housing and open community spaces often surrounded by green spaces, trees and flowers. Quinta more appropriately reflects our invitation to come to our home and experience Convivencia. This personal, high touch aspect differentiates us from a resort or hotel.

The Ecuador we share with our guests is based on the ancestral traditions of the Manteño culture, steeped in spirituality and the magic of the natural surroundings. 

Our Manteño casitas and mini suites are located in the community of Rio Chico and built with brick according to the Manteño cultural traditions. They are eco-friendly and provide comfort for short and long stays.

For short and long term stays we also rent our casitas and mini-suites to travelers to this area. Please contact us directly to inquire if they are available. To learn more about our accommodations CLICK HERE.


Your Home Away From Home

Our philosophy is what we call "Convivencia": to be human together.

This is what we mean when we say Oasis offers something very unique that is not found anywhere else. Instead of staying in a small, generic hotel room, you enjoy Ecuadorian living in your own private casita or mini suite. You're free to cook your own meals or have your meals cooked for you. We encourage our guests to join us and others for lively conversations and sharing of meals. Because we are a small, intimate property you'll feel like you are staying at a friend's home (you are!) instead of a resort or vacation rental.

All casitas have a full kitchen, dining area, two bedrooms with full size beds and views from all windows, closets, one bathroom with hot/cold water, ceiling fans in all rooms, wireless internet access, and an open living space with sliding glass door to the balcony overlooking the ocean. In the future they will also have air conditioning in the bedrooms and television in the living room.

The mini suites have either two single beds or one full size bed, private bathroom with hot/cold water, chest of drawers, refrigerator, fresh water, ceiling fan and windows with views.

Oasis sits high on a hill surrounded by the lush countryside overlooking the ocean (a fifteen minute walk) and is divided into two levels. The casitas and gardens are located on the lower level. Three mini suites are on the upper level and will be poolside once the pool area is finished. The community room and the open air yoga studio with stunning views of the Pacific are located on the upper level in the main house.  A large community kitchen, bar and dining area on the upper level is designed for interaction between guests provoking interesting conversations and new friendships. 

AN Oasis personal retreat is for you if...

You are going through a life transition or you need to make a significant decision in your life about your path.

You are feeling burnt out, uninspired and spiritually exhausted and need a time out from the noise and static of life to renew yourself.

You have been through a loss - divorce, loss of a loved one, career issue - and need to recalibrate your life.

You have exciting possibilities for your life and work and before stepping into them you recognize a need to ground yourself.

You want to finally resolve a persistent challenge or deep belief that impedes your reaching your full potential.

You're a creative or social entrepreneur or an artist, writer, photographer or musician and would value a quiet place in nature with thoughtful conversations to reconnect to your muse and inspiration.

You are a couple that wants to take your relationship to the next level of love and support in a safe and nurturing environment facilitated by two masterful counselors.

our commitment to our local community

All construction has been done by local artisans using traditional building methods that have been passed down for generations. The casitas were built according to Manteño cultural traditions using all brick for the most efficient cooling and warmth according to the season. All materials are locally sourced and we are committed to employing from our local community. Our social entrepreneurship program receives donations from our guests and others to help create a sustainable community here.  We are committed to supporting our local community by providing employment and economic assistance for essential utilities. A percentage of our income goes into our community service fund used for improvements to our community.
