June Donaldson and Edward Garry live at an altitude of 2,600 metres in Mosoj Llajta, Yotala, 20 minutes from the colonial city of Sucre in Bolivia, South America. Using earth and stones from the land, we have sculpted beautiful buildings which compliment the high desert landscape and incorporate creative and innovative elements of design.

We have designed a high quality hotel in Sucre for guests who want to get off the treadmill of travelling from city to city in South America. At Sky Hacienda you can dictate your own timing and choose how to enjoy your stay, whether it is doing very little or exploring the best that the Andes in Bolivia has to offer.

21 November 2010


In the middle of November we moved into the single storey section of the Roundhouse. We had a roof, walls, floors we could walk on and windows. It was a bit bohemian - no internal doors, mattresses on the floor, a makeshift kitchen in the utility room, suitcases piled up in the wardrobe, and a lot of finishing still to do..... But it felt a hundred times better than living in the rented apartment in Sucre that had been our home for the past 18 months. And no more daily commuting!

We had already decided that there would be no curtains at our windows. It was fantastic to turn off the lights at night and see the stars in the inky black sky and the moon casting shadows on the mountains.

And as for the sunrises - beautiful shades of red and gold on the Andes and the sun shining through the bottles in the bedroom wall.
