The spacious interior looks out from the living room onto the large front yard that is available to you. Being built into the hillside this house is the perfect escape from the hot and humid Ecuador days. The bedrooms are built off either side of the living room, making them perfect for a comfortable sleep during hot nights. This style of house is perfect for people living in hot countries who don’t want to purchase air conditioning and would rather have a naturally cooled house.
