Wonderful home with beautiful gardens, great views, and an excellent host
"We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay in Vicky's beautiful home. The home is located in a quiet section of Quito (Conocoto). It has good access to the highways... we were able to take day trips in our rental car from the home to Otavalo, the next day to Cotopaxi, and the next day to Papallacta (hot springs). It was very nice to return to a lovely quiet home after our day trips. Vicky has created a genuine oasis from the city on her property. The grounds are wonderfully landscaped with gardens and trees and the views of the city below are beautiful, especially at dusk. The property is behind walls so it feels very private, secluded and secure. There is a lovely pool that is heated by a solar heating system, so it was always 85+ degrees. There is also a ping-pong table, a hammock, and lots of space in which to relax. The home itself is large, comfortable, and very nicely decorated. It has all of the features you would want including three bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, good WIFI, TV (don't really need it), hammock, outdoor tables and sofas, and more. Vicky lives on the property in a separate home. We definitely had all of the privacy we wanted but we very much enjoyed getting to know Vicky as well. She was able to give us advice about traveling in the area, finding groceries, etc.
All in all, we highly recommend this home for couples, families (our 8-year old loved this home), groups of friends, etc. It is affordable, convenient, very pleasant, and has a wonderful host in Vicky."
