About Pablo Alvarez

I grew up in Quito, but left Ecuador when I was a teenager. My studies took me to Germany, Kansas and California. The last fifteen years I made Texas my home, and the property in the pictures will most likely be the home for my retirement years.

Pablo Alvarez purchased this villa in 1975

Why Pablo Alvarez chose Pomasqui

This property was passed down to us as part of our parent's inheritance. The property was initially bought by them in the late seventies, when the valley was still a rural area. In the last forty five years Quito has grown, and the property that once served as a weekend home, has evolved into a great place to host family friends and guests.

What makes this villa unique

All the wood works are custom made, which gives the place a unique touch! The balcony in the back of the house faces north, looking over where the equator line divides the globe into two hemispheres. I truly enjoyed the view from the kitchen bay window with the Casitagua in the horizon during the sunset. It is a property that enjoys a quiet and relaxed environment with a World Heritage city a few miles away.

Excellent place

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice place. Pedro was also a great person to meet and provided help arranging transportation and giving advice on guides. This would even work for those that can not speak Spanish as Pedro can provide assistance in that regard. It is highly recommended.

Wonderful Private Villa

  • 5 of 5

The house was even more than we had expected. Beautiful architecture!! Tile and custom wood work throughout. Plenty of space, we only had six people. Lots of outside patio, veranda spaces. Awesome pool, and never ending landscaping. Very, very clean and well maintained. Did not feel like a rental but like some one home because of the comftable feel and care. The owner Pablo was awesome. Informative and available to help with questions and ideas on things to do. He was funny and super easy. Was so helpful that we felt instant friendship with him. We met his family, his wife and daughter super friendly. We had no problems whatsoever with anything!!! Highly recommend. Ecuador was very safe, people super friendly. Weather was mild. Lots of things to do close to the house. We went horseback riding in an amazing valley, went zip lining, hiking, swimming in waterfall within 30 min to a couple of hours from the house. Of course the Center of the World was right around the corner. We could see the monument from the property. Also have to go to the Amazon jungle- A must see!! Loved our entire experience!!

An indescribable experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

It will hard to describe the amazing experience we had in this vacations, I can just say that staying in this property was the biggest highlight of our trip!! Everything about it was amazing, from the moment we walked in we loved it...first thing we noticed was how clean it was!! Every single piece of decoration beside that it went perfect with the house style, there was not a single drop of dust. Everything was so perfectly clean and organized that it made us feel extremely comfortable and welcome.

The owners and the gentleman who takes care of property (Ernesto) are extremely nice and helpful. Thank you both for letting us not only staying in your beautiful home but also for making our trip unforgettable.

100% recommend for anybody who want to experience something different than staying in a hotel...this house has an amazing swimming pool, pool table, ping pong table, soccer field, basketball half court, a park!! And an amazing kitchen that makes you feel like cooking and forget about a restaurant, the rooms were spectacular and as comfortable as you own bed, the location couldn’t be any better...just 2 minutes away from one of the biggest tourist and worldwide attraction, “La Mitad del Mundo” (the center of the world) zero latitude. Oh and the view!! Wow...what a view!!

Don’t hesitate to stay here if you are visiting Quito!! I’m sure it will unforgettable also...

Gracias Sr. Pedro, Sr. Pablo y Ernesto!! Hasta la próxima!!

Great Place at the Middle of the World

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Finca Analia. It is a beautiful property with plenty of space. It fit our group of two families comfortably and it enabled us to explore Quito and the surrounding areas. Catching a bus into the city was very easy from the main road. Ernesto the caretaker was good to work with and he accommodated our late arrival the first night. We would definitely come back.

Pocket Picker

  • 2 of 5

The property is very nice and everything it is proposed to be. However, once there, the resident agent picks your pocket with unreasonable charges: $40.00 dollars to go 5 miles for grocery, $100.00 for the half hour ride to or from the airport, day trips for which he is devoid of basic information. For perspective, you can take a cab from downtown Quito to the property for $10.00 dollars. Also, he is a hotrod driver which makes clients feel ill at ease when transported, rather than comfortable and safe.

We would not return to this offering, nor recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Dear Dan, We apologize for not having fully met your transportation arrangement expectations. We are not responsible for any third party services recommended to our clients, including transportation, tours, and catering. All services recommended are not part of our villa rental agreement, and they are paid directly to the service providers. We limit our responsibility to recommending these services to our clients, keeping in mind their safety, comfort and cost. Our guests are free to take our advice, or to make their own arrangements for sightseeing and transportation at all times. This is the first time we receive a complaint for our third party transportation provider rates and driver. I have made them aware of your complaint, and they apologize for any wrong doing as far as the driving is concerned. In regards to the rates they have not been increased in the last two years. They are reasonable compared to similar service providers. Renting a large high end SUV with capacity for 8 people with leather seats and hiring a bilingual driver who is at your disposal cannot be compared to the local taxi rates. We will review and go over the rates and services of our third party transportation provider, and will also make it clear and more explicit to all our guests that they are free at all times to compare their rates to other providers. We take our guests reviews very seriously, and will be very proactive trying to make sure our guests have their expectations met. We would like to thank you for your generous tipping, for your business and for choosing booking with us. We express our sorrow for not having met your transportation expectations. Kind regards,

Great family stay at villa

  • 5 of 5

After spending a week traveling in Ecuador, I stayed here for Christmas weekend with my wife and here family, who are from Ecuador. The owners and caretakers are fantastic and made us feel like we were friendly neighbors rather than guests. They even went as far as to let us borrow a Christmas tree with decorations for the holiday as well as a nice bottle of wine as a gift. The pictures on the website are very accurate and the home is well maintained. The activities, which include the pool, basketball, volleyball, pool table and ping pong table, kept us and the kids entertained. Our family enjoyed so many great memories during our short stay here and I guarantee we will be back again.

Thank you again Pablo, Pedro, Tito and Tita.
