"Paradise awaits! Mario and his team have absolutely thought of every detail to make your stay unforgettable. Although the house is not in the sand it is just steps from the sand and waves. The staff makes every attempt to make certain that your stay is all you have dreamt it would be.
Our stay was for two weeks. We arrived to the coast a week ahead of when we had originally planed. We stayed at a small rustic resort a short walk down the beach in the town of San Jose which we absolutely loved. Try the baker on the corner his chocolate coconut cakes are to die for as well as any other items he has for sale. We did contact Mario who offered to allow us to check in early free of charge! How often does that happen? Mario went out of his way to make sure we had everything we could possibly want or need. We plan to come back as soon as we can. We love Ecuador, the people, the land, the sea, but most of all the kindness of the Ecuadorian people. We spent 6 weeks in Ecuador and ended our trip with our stay at this property. If you are considering staying here do it you will not regret it. Thank you Mario & staff you made our trip absolutely amazing. We can not mention enough kind words to express the welcoming feeling you folks provided us. True hospitality at its best."

"I can't say enough about our stay in Quito at this comfortable and conveniently located apartment. Clemencia was very responsive and helpful throughout the booking process and also when our flight was delayed due to the weather in the Northeast. When we did finally arrive, we were greeted at the airport by Javier, who helped us to get situated in Quito. Especially nice was that he took us to the grocery store and helped us pick up some essentials before arriving at the apartment. It was lovely to be greeted by such a kind and friendly person after our long flight!
The apartment provided us with more than enough room for our group of 5. We loved waking up in the morning and sipping our coffee while looking out at the incredible view of Quito and the volcano towering over the city. Bellavista is a great neighborhood, very safe, with everything you need within walking distance. If you want to venture out beyond the immediate neighborhood (and of course you will) it is very easy and affordable to get around Quito using public transportation - there is a stop right at the bottom of the hill. I would also add that we had no problems whatsoever with the water pressure, as another commenter noted. The only suggestion I could give to improve the experience might be to have a folder or notebook with some local suggestions - for example the best and closest restaurants, the nearest pharmacies and grocery stores, the owners favorite sites in Quito, etc... I certainly wouldn't hesitate to stay at Clemencia's apartment again, and I do plan on returning to Quito sooner rather than later. We had a wonderful stay."

"Francisco and his wife are extremely welcoming and always helped us out when needed.
The place was clean when we arrived and we did have an issue with turning on our showers. However, Francisco came after one phone call and help us out.
You are given a set of keys to enter the building along with 3 more locks on the doors. We felt very comfortable and safe.
The dryer and washer worked perfectly.

"We just got home from a wonderful month-long trip where we spent the majority of the time at this condo. The location is excellent, and the views from the room and from the roof are great. When we arrived, the condo was impeccably clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Edgar was helpful from the first time I contacted him, and even got in touch with us right after our arrival to make sure everything was okay (it was) and answer any questions we had. In addition to the 24-hour security guard, there are security measures in place for using the elevators and stairs, making the building very secure. It was a great experience! On a side note, there is a Botanical Garden at the Carolina Park that is well-worth visiting!"
