ReviewsWrite a review
This is a lovely condo with spectacular views. Sergio was excellent to work with, responding so quickly to any question or request. Carmen, his sister and property manager, was excellent. We made one suggestion and she thanked us profusely and said she'd take care of it immediately - that they want their guests to have the best. Edwin was our driver, and he was an excellent driver and very informative, but speaks little English. All taxi drivers could find our address with no problem. We really enjoyed our time and would stay here again.

The best vacation rental in Quito

This was our second time staying at this great location, and everything was once again superb. We love the setting, the view over the mountains is stupendous, Carmen is a real gem, the apartment was quiet, and we could walk everywhere we needed to be. If this property is available, grab it. There is no better in Quito.

Our four couples settled right in and enjoy the condo and Quito a lot. Sergio was a great host. We toured Quito and went for an overnight to Baños. Do go for a fine dinner at Zazu's, only a few blocks away. It was a wonderful stay. All was great.

Beautiful, Large, Convenient Condo
Beautiful, Large, Convenient Condo
We just returned from Ecuador and a week's long stay at this condo. I cannot say enough nice things about it - it is very large (big enough to comfortably accommodate our party of 8); beautiful (someone in my party thought it was actually nicer than the pictures depict); and comfortable, with all the amenities you would need. The building is safe and in a prime location for accessing Quito's sights, and is close to stores and restaurants. The view of the mountains and city from the huge balcony cannot be beat. The owner Sergio greeted us upon arrival and gave us an overview of not only the condo, but the area as well. He helped us with transportation from the airport and for a day trip to Otavalo. He was available throughout our stay should we need him. Tips: There is a grocery store a Supermaxi a few blocks away at the corner of La Nina and Janez Pinzon that Sergio pointed us to that is well stocked. Also, a good and convenient restaurant is Crepes and Waffles across from the Marriott. Great for desserts, too.

Owner response: It was my pleasure Amanda to have your group as my guests in this very convenient apartment. You are welcome to come back any time. As you know, this condo is located in a great area, close to almost everything and surrounded by a great variety of restaurants, parks, artisan markets, and museums. A grocery market is only three blocks away. This condo has it all- just bring yourself.

Beautiful apartment, great location
Beautiful apartment, great location
My three friends and I stayed in this apartment for two weeks. It was wonderful! We each had our own bedroom and bathroom (one bathroom isn't en suite, but it wasn't an issue). Sergio and his sister took care of all our needs and it was great having an apartment with wifi and washer/dryer. The location is good - taxis are readily available and there are restaurants within walking distance. It's also a quick walk or drive to Mariscal, one of the main nightlife areas. We strongly recommend this apartment to anyone coming to Quito. The quality, service, price and location really can't be beat.

Owner response: Hola Rachael, Thank you for your review. I'm glad you guys enjoyed your stay in my apartment, which, as you say, is near almost everything. More and more americans are coming to Quito for a language immersion trip and to enjoy its beauty and experience what it means to be in the center of the world. Felicitaciones Rachael y resto del grupo por su interés en el idioma español. You are welcome to come back any time. Kind regards, Sergio

Ideal location, great views from the terrace and more than ample room for most families. We took advantage of all four bedrooms and the four bathrooms. The apartment is nicely decorated and has all services/supplies needed for a comfortable visit. When we inquired about a highchair for an infant, one showed up within the hour. We were pleased with the close proximity to shopping and restaurants. We especially enjoyed Zazu Restaurant at nearby Mariano Aguilera 331 y la Pradera. (walking distance) Sergio reviewed the apartment upon our arrival and made sure we had all his contact numbers if needed for any questions or requests. The numbers were not needed as the entire 24 days of our visit went smoothly, His sister Carmen lives nearby and was also available for any needed assistance. Upon our arrival, they had fresh flowers in the apartment's foyer. We would definitely recommend this apartment and will consider it again when we return to Quito.

About the owner: I am originally from Ecuador and my wife is from Puerto Rico. We met in Southern California where we have lived for over 40 years. We raised our son and daughter in the United States and we are now entering our retirement years and look forward to enjoying life to its fullest and exploring the globe.
Why the Owner Chose Quito:
Although we love to travel to different parts of the world, Quito has always been one of our favorite spots to visit as we consider it to be extremely unique, relaxing and beautiful. We also like to go there often to visit family which was another reason for us to buy a vacation home. Quito's year-round mild weather, rich colonial history and dramatic mountain setting makes it a desirable place for us to visit. Our penthouse rental is cozy, safe and has breathtaking views of the Pichincha volcano and the city. In addition to this, its location is central to everything a tourist might want or need.
