Holiday Rental House
Welcome to Parentheses Cabins! The first adobe house we’ve created looks like any other Bolivian residence on the outside but the inside offers satellite TV, a loft with a dream mattress, original artwork and even a grownup slide! The rural area is surrounded by sheep, llamas, and Bolivians in traditional dress, yet we're just a 15-minute walk from the center of town. You also have a view of Lake Titicaca from the loft window. My husband Helder and I took nearly two years to design and construct this cabin (our first), and we did all the interior work ourselves, including the kitchen counters, the living room sofas and all of the bathroom details (okay, maybe not the toilet or sink). Helder is a Bolivian filmmaker who grew up in the jungle area of El Beni and learned about house construct...Welcome to Parentheses Cabins!

Helder is a Bolivian filmmaker who grew up in the jungle area of El Beni and learned about house construction from his father. I’m an American travel author who has spent more than a third of her life in Latin America, starting from the age of four. Our goal was to create a unique space that was comfortable, modern and aesthetic but one that also respected traditional building materials. In the end, we hope that a stay here provides a unique glimpse into the culture for anyone in search of a genuine Bolivian experience.More

I can’t stress enough how much we loved staying at this place. The cabin might not look like much from the outside, but it’s an excepcional well designed space. It’s ample and comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen and a beautiful clean bathroom. Also, there’s...More

About the neighbourhood
We are outside of the tourist corridor, so you'll be the only non-Bolivians in the area. At night, you'll be able to see the stars. And during the day, you'll see neighbors in traditional dress often herding their sheep. If you want to walk into town, it's about 15 minutes on foot to the main plaza. The cabin is in a very safe area. Though it is a dirt road, so it gets a bit muddy during rainy season (during the Bolivian summer). Taxis charge 15 bolivianos (2 dollars) to pick you up and take you anywhere in town though they usually only run till 9.30 pm at night. If you wind up walking back to the house late, you might need a flashlight for the last few blocks (the one on your cellphone should work fine) but the area is incredibly safe.
