  • Excellent

    "Very convenient location near the old city attractions and within walking distance of site seeing, grocery shopping, and numerous dining options. If you have a car, they have secure free parking. Otherwise, Quito taxis are the least expensive I have ever seen in a major city. For example, it is only three or five dollars around downtown and only $30 to the airport which is 45 minutes to an hour away. The owners are wonderful hosts, and provided us a 3-hour English walking tour of the old city for a very reasonable price. The apartment had everything we needed, the beds were very comfortable, and the apartment complex had its own security guard. We highly recommend this apartment."

  • Beautiful!

    "We stayed in this home for 10 spectacular days. Absolutely incredible location! Waking up and sleeping to the waves each day was magical, calming and hypnotic. Words and pictures cannot possibly describe this gorgeous home and property. The beach, which is literally out the front door, is beyond beautiful, rivaling any beach we’ve been on. The oversized bedroom and the outdoor dining area, facing the ocean, made for a perfect relaxing holiday. The home was beautifully maintained, impeccably decorated, clean and luxurious. After a long drive, we were met promptly by the owners, Bruce and Kim, who gave us a tour of the wonderful property. They were sincerely and genuinely passionate about ensuring that our trip in their home would be nothing but exceptional . Every day Kim would ask us if there was anything we needed or wanted. The home is cleaned daily with laundry and cooking services available by the on-site couple who cook and clean for the owners. We hope to return one day!"

  • Perfect Location; VERY SAFE

    "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. HIghly recommended."

  • PURE CLASS NOTHING LESS

    "I don't want to repeat what everyone has said about this apartment,because it is all true ,plus more. I want to comment on the owner , Sergio. I had my flight canceled and my girlfriend ,had to arrive from a different country a day before me. It was her first time in Ecuador so of course I was worried . Through emails alone I contacted Sergio with my problem,and he had his driver, Pablo meet my girlfriend,very early Sunday morning, escort her to the apartment, where his sister Carmen ,took over reassuring her how safe the apartment was, Sergio, Carmen and Pablo ,really put me at ease with their help. Alot of owners may not had shown this much care, This is a first class apartment ,with a first class owner. Mil gracias Sergio ,Carmen and Pablo No one will ever regret their stay at this apartment ,guaranteed !"

Traveling to Quito Vacation Rentals in Ecuador

The primary airport is in the capital city of Quito and known as the Mariscal Sucre Airport. The airports in Ecuador host more than 20 regional and international airlines.
