About Tanya Moritz

Hi, I was born in Ecuador and my husband in New York City. I moved to New York at a young age. We met while both working for the New York City Police Department. After 20 years of service I retired with the rank of Lieutenant . We love traveling with our two children 14 and 12 years old. We purchased this condo on September 2003. We love to share our home and hope our guests have as much fun as we do when we are there.

Very good location for quick access to the malecon.

  • 4 of 5

Right in front of the malecon. Not in the most action area but not at the dead quiet end either. First floor is not high for a bird's eye view but high enough that people are not looking in at you as they walk by. Lots of furniture, kitchen is supplied with things like toaster, coffee maker, blender, pots etc. But we did have to wash everything before using as it seems nobody bothers washing things after using.

TV is ok and we moved some furniture around so we could sit and watch. Internet was good after a router reboot and the free calls to Canada were nice.

AC in the bedrooms but not the main area and the fully retractable windows allowed the bugs in the evening. Lighting was a bit dim especially for the kitchen in the evening.

Hot water was quick so you were not waiting for a shower. Two elevators in the building plus stairs.

Security was good with onsite supervision 24/7 and available to help if needed.

Was ready for use with new soap, towels, iron and clothes washer. The ironing board was inhabited by an ant colony. The shower worked better in the common bathroom than it did in the master bedroom.

Room for two in the master bedroom and three or maybe four in the second. I guess you could put two in the maid's quarters if you were that desperate.

We only saw one cockroach but he is not there anymore because I found him in my cookies when I got to Quito.

Overall a decent value for your money.

Great location, view and ammenities!

  • 4 of 5

This property was exactly as described and Tanya was very prompt responding to messages. The bedrooms have split A/C units, which we didn't use as with the windows open there was such a great breeze the A/C wasn't required. The balcony area has been incorporated into the living area of the unit and the glass panels slide out of the way to give an open air feeling and a great view of the ocean. It has a full kitchen which we used for some breakfasts and lunches (full size fridge, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker). Not that we watched much TV but there is TV in the social area and in the master bedroom (we even found a couple English speaking channels), good WiFi and free phone calls to US and Canada.

This property is literally across the road from the beach (although the beach here has the small crushed shells) and a short walk down the Malecon to a sandy beach or a $1.50 cab ride to Chipipe beach which is just on the other side of the yacht club. Both of these beaches were clean. At the time of our stay the beaches were crowded on the weekend and much less crowded during the week The property has 24 hours security and a dedicated property manager. All were very friendly and helpful. Restaurants are within easy walking distance.

I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend to others.
