Quito has been recognized as the leading tourist destination in South America at the World Travel Awards in 2013, considered the Oscars of Tourism! Come and see what this beautiful capital city has to offer.

Located just 11 miles from the airport (Mariscal Sucre International Airport), this exclusive apartment is located on the top floor of the building and offers a stunning view of the beautiful Andes Mountains and the unique city capital.

It offers a private and large terrace, high-speed & WiFi Internet, cable TV, 2 phone lines/free local calls, 3 hairdryers, and a fully equipped kitchen w/ granite counters, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave. There is a separate room next to the kitchen where you’ll find a washer, dryer, sink, iron and ironing board.

This lovely penthouse is walking distance to the Marriott Hotel, El Jardin Shopping Mall and the beautiful La Carolina Park.

It is situated only minutes from the posh Swissôtel, Hotel Quito and Hilton Colon and the stylish Plaza Foch where you’ll find great restaurants, bars/pubs, internet cafes, bookstores and art galleries. Go shopping at the various street markets and buy yourself an authentic Panama hat (yes, they are actually made in Ecuador!).

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

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.

                      Location!
