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.

Whether you are traveling for pleasure or business, or simply passing through town for a few days before embarking on a trip to the Galapagos Islands, this beautiful and spacious apartment will offer all the comforts and amenities of a home away from home. Located just 14 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.

Located across the street is La Ronda Restaurant where you can mingle with locals, European and American tourists while enjoying its distinctive ambiance, cultural entertainment and delicious national and international cuisine.

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!).

*NOTE: Quito now offers a new tour via a large double decker bus (hop on hop off) that runs a three-hour route through Quito making eleven stops at some of the principal attractions of the city between Naciones Unidas Boulevard (La Carolina Park) and the Panecillo hillside.

Owner info

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 La Colon, Quito, Ecuador:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Location! This penthouse is close to everything: fine restaurants, shopping centers, parks, museums, theaters and cinemas, pubs, artisans markets, profesional soccer stadium, etc. Spacious: 1840 square feet of living space plus about 635 square feet of your own private terrace. Magnificent views of mountain and city from inside of the apartment. Peace of mind: private security guards 24/7 and your own underground parking space. A home away from home with everything in it.: A fully equipped kitchen with new refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, conventional as well as microwave ovens, etc. Internet access with WiFi connection. Washer and Dryer in the apartment.. Three hair dryers. Safe for your valuables. Trustworthy Housekeeper Available upon request. A fourth small bedroom with a twin bed and its own private three-quarter bathroom if needed for an seventh person. There is also a sofa bed in the living room to accommodate an eight person. We are also happy to provide you with tourist information and recommendations. And we help arrange airport transportation, as well as half and full day tours.
