Our student house is located just across the street from the Spanish school in the lively neighbourhood La Mariscal. Surrounded by restaurants and bars, there is enough to do in the area to not get bored!

In our main house we have 4 shared bedrooms.
Accommodation in Montanita
We have accommodation especially for our students - the cabanas. An oasis of tranquility located just 5 minutes walk from the school, 3 minutes from the centre of town, and 2 minutes from the beach. Nestled into the relaxed atmosphere of ‘Barrio Tigrillo’ these cabanas provide the best of both worlds, being moments away from the centre of the action and providing the peace and tranquility needed to make the most of your time in Montanita. Just outside the door of your cabana you will find a swimming pool, jacuzzi, large communal kitchen and a large sitting area with a TV and DVD.
The shared mini dorms are the perfect option for those looking to for high quality accommodation on a budget. Keeping true to the rustic look of Montanita, our dorm rooms are all large and spacious allowing you to soak up the peaceful ambiance while saving those hard earned $$. With the options of either 6 bed or 4 bed dorms you will not have problems maintaining some personal privacy.
