As the Realtor in Edward says, it's "Location,Location,Location."
"If you are looking for the best location in Quito, this is it! I just returned from 7 days in Quito with the last 4 days spent in Edgar's condo. I have rented quite a few condos through VRBO and I look for several qualities in a rental. One is: does the condo have all of the amenities that I want for my stay? Two is: Location..is the location within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, entertainment and public transportation? Three: Is the condo in a safe and secure location? Four: Is the owner easy and accommodating to work with?
I must say that it is very seldom that I find a rental that meets all of these qualities in spades as Edgar's condo does; and with the personal attention that you get from Edgar.
Edgar helped me find a English speaking driver named Daniel that drove me all around the Quito area and to the Airport for my flight back home. Edgar and I spoke several times during and after my stay and he is as you will find from the people of Ecuador very friendly and helpful. I think I have a new friend.
It was also nice that he has a Magic Jack phone in the condo that you can call back to the states at no charge.
Thanks for making my stay very pleasant.

"We just spent six weeks based here, making a number of excursions to lodges and parks with the Villa Jardín as our base, and the plan worked perfectly. After hiking, trails, heat, bugs, inconvenience etc. it was wonderful to come back to the comfort and conveniences of our temporary home.
The property and the house totally live up to expectations: the garden is lovely, and the house both beautiful and fully equipped. Vicky is close by, in the other house on the property, always available with help and advice, but always respecting our privacy too. The dogs are all sweeties (just don't let them accompany you if you walk through the village, it causes a maelstrom of barking and squabbling).
We didn't rent a car, and found public transit amazingly good and cheap, although crowded and rackety. A ten-minute walk downhill to the bus stop, then a half-hour ride into Quito (27 cents) where you can walk up to the old city, or connect with the north-south bus routes (flat rate 25 cents) that take you at least close to almost everything.
The location of the house is spectacular, too, with amazing views of the valley and the surrounding mountains. An excellent choice, and would definitely recommend to friends."

"You are still debating where to stay ?? Stop your research , here is where you want to spend an unforgettable time in Ecuador. Beautiful view of the ocean, very clean place, fresh fruits for breakfast every morning with fresh pastries and eggs on top of it if you wish. The remarkable aspect of this villa is the hosts !!! Marsha and Shell !!!! The best ever. They sure go beyong your expectations, soooo generous of their time . Using their van they take their guests to this restaurant on the beach, propose day trip, and more and more. They also gave us the opportunity to meet people by inviting them over which turned out to be very pleasant and every one did have a good time. Thanks for those beautiful souvenirs we brought back with us. Without you it would not have been the same. No wonder why you are NO 1 in Ecuador !!! You deserve way more than a 5 stars. We definitly highly recommand this place, do not hesitate."

STOP! LOOK NO MORE! YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR GALAPAGOS VACATION HOME!
"My wife and I and our two boys, aged 12 and 10 recently spent 6 nights at LA Casa Di Furio and it was simply fantastic! Furio is a wonderful host and is willing to help you organize any of your activities on Santa Cruz or for day trips to the other islands. He had everything organized for us when we arrived. Furio will cook for you if you wish or he will allow you complete privacy if that is your desire. We can only echo what so many other reviewers have said- he is a fantastic chef!! His kitchen/greatroom area downstairs opens to the patio, pool, and little beach area and provides the perfect place to gather in the evenings to cook, sip a glass of wine, and watch the kids play in the pool. His super friendly dog Tornado will be close by taking part n the fun as well. Our boys woke up early every morning to see the sea lions and Iguana's out on the boat dock in front. The bedrooms upstairs are clean and spacious and I especially liked the wide porch overlooking the bay. Furio also has William his driver and Esther his housekeeper available for your needs and Esther will also do your laundry for a small fee if you wish. We have stayed in VRBOs all over the world and our experience at La Casa Di Furio was one of the very best! Thanks Furio my friend. We will be back!"
