About Sergio Eguiguren

Sergio was born and raised in Ecuador and his wife, Nelly is originally from Ponce, Puerto Rico. They met and got married in Southern California and soon after their son, David was born, they moved to Quito. They spent the next few years running a restaurant business and simply enjoying the South American way of life. Shortly after their daughter, Veronica was born they decided it was time to move back to Los Angeles, California where they’ve lived for over 35 years. Ecuador, however, has been and continues to be one of their favorite places to vacation. With each visit, they’ve had the pleasure of spending time with relatives and have had many opportunities to explore this beautiful and distinctive country. It truly is a home away from home for this close-knit family.

Sergio Eguiguren purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sergio Eguiguren chose La Colina

While Quito has become a flourishing and thriving commercial city, it remains unique in that it continues to highlight its colonial beauty, culture and traditions while at the same time exhibiting an exciting and contemporary way of life. It’s where the colonial skyline of Old Town Quito and the Andean valley surrounded by volcanic peaks serves as the background of the modern high-rise buildings. It’s the best of both worlds.

What makes this condo unique

They fell in love with this apartment from the moment they stepped foot into it. They decided to invest in this property not only because of its location and wonderful amenities, but because the view of the city capital and the stunning Andean mountains are simply breathtaking, inspiring and calming. There’s really nothing like it.

The apartment itself offers everything a modern traveler might need and the building is perfectly located in a quiet and lovely part of town. And as a bonus, you have access to the gym, the outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzis, and the building has 24 Hour Security which includes building security guard, security cameras throughout the building, and card-controlled entrances.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best Place to stay in Quito

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful 3 bedroom/3.5 bath apartment located on the forth floor was a perfect place to stay while visiting our daughter in Quito. As it was our first time visiting South America this property had all the comforts of home. It is located in very clean, upscale and quiet part of Quito unlike most hotels in town. There is a little market next door with bottled water and food items. We visited frequently during out stay. There are also several nice restaurants within a few blocks and a coffee shop across the street. Sergio and his sister, Carmen, have thought over EVERY DETAIL in stocking the apartment. Such as night lights, coffee, tea, spices, paper towels, napkins, laundry detergent, space heaters (most accommodations in Quito do not have heat which we actually did not need) and fully stocked kitchen. You can flush the toilet paper which is rare in Ecuador. The apartment is a split plan in which you enter into a foyer (half bath to right) with a dining room and living room straight ahead. The kitchen, laundry room, a full bath and eat in kitchen are to the left and the three bedrooms and sitting area with the TV are on the right. The master bedroom has a large walk through closet into the master bath which has a shower/tub and amble counter space. There is another full bathroom with a step in shower between the two other bedrooms. There are two long balconies off the kitchen/LR and the master, both of which have a table and chairs and amazing views. We really enjoyed the workout room, two jacuzzis, sauna, steam room and pool located on the fifth floor with beautiful views of which get the afternoon sun. The building is beautiful with a large marble entrance with fob key to get in and a desk with very friendly and helpful 24 hour guards. One went out of his way to get a taxi for us. Carmen and Sergio could not have been nicer. We got a free airport pick up with our stay of five days (this runs about $25 as we payed to get back to airport on our departure). They also extended our stay as requested as were so pleased with the accommodations. If we ever get to Quito again we will be staying here, our new home away from home, in South American.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at Sergio's apartment. Everything was perfect. Apartment is beautiful, spacious, with everything you might need. It is located in a safe area of town, with restaurants and small markets nearby. Carmen did grocery shopping for us (we sent Sergio a grocery list). She met us at the apartment at 3am, when our flight was 4 hours late, and was very welcoming and gracious. Sergio was very helpful with arranging transportation to and from the airport. We were impressed with how well thought through everything is in the apartment. We didn't feel anything was missing. The pool on the roof deck is great, with amazing views. We would not hesitate to book Sergio's apartment again.

The property was exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with the property. The view was awesome, the layout of rooms was wonderful and we each had our bedroom and bath. Carmen, the property owners sister was there to welcome us and explain everything about the property. Carmen remained available should we have any questions during our stay. She checked out the property upon our departure. We now have another friend in Quito.

We found all the necessary items to establish our household for the week we were there. Convenience stores were next door for all our needs.

Security was incredible with a full-time doorman. Additionally there were electronic means by which to enter and leave the property.

It was easy to call or catch a cab to travel. Cabs were readily available.

Beautiful Home In A Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our second stay at this beautiful apartment. It was a joy to greet Carmen again and her hospitality, communication and care was, as usual, top notch. We tried new restaurants in the neighborhood, enjoyed the apartment pool and rested well in the very comfortable beds. We can't wait to return. Thank you Carmen and Sergio for another wonderful stay!

Wonderful week in this fabulous condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this lovely condo! Sergio & Carmen were so helpful & accommodating. We were planning on staying at a hotel after traveling around Ecuador with our son who is living in Quito. However, we loved the condo so much that we extended our stay. Truly, a home away from home.
