About Sergio Eguiguren

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.

Sergio Eguiguren purchased this condo in 2006

Why Sergio Eguiguren chose Quito

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Excellent location for Ecuador stay

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse apartment was a wonderful place to stay during our visit to Ecuador and Quito. We were traveling with our extended family (three children and their grandparents) and Sergio made every effort to make sure we were comfortable including helping to arrange an excellent driver for our airport transfers and a day of touring. We were able to fit a trip to the Galapagos into this visit and it was very nice to keep most of our luggage in Quito and have a "home" to return to. To walk out to the large outdoor patio with a glass of wine after a long day of sightseeing was a great way to end the day.

Mr. and Mrs. with friends

Where to start to share with others what an exceptional property VRBO #258550 truly is. My husband and I are in our 60's and for the last 15 + years or so we have only stayed in VRBO and bed and breakfasts. With VRBO you really get the whole package, not just a place to sleep but all the information about anything you wish to see or do locally. The owner Sergio is wonderful, and the best thing is EVERYTHING is exactly as he describes. I must admit I was a bit skeptical of vacationing is South America but went along with my husband as he has really wanted to do this for the past couple of years now. Let me say we can't wait to go back. From this beautiful condo you can walk and see many things. Shopping and dining is all very close. Sergio the owner is so kind, and so accommodating. He had drinks and snacks waiting for us when we arrived, and took the time to visit with us to find out what we wanted to see and do, and then added many things of interest to our list. He arranged for a private driver for us everyday. Ivan drove and taught us some Spanish and shared many cultural things with us. The view from the penthouse is more than idealistic, the beauty the lights, the sounds, are all so inviting.

Safety is of no concern. The building is locked 24/7 and the key to the condo is how you access the penthouse. With 4 bedrooms and 4 bathroom, all spic and span clean there is ample room for 6 or 8 people. Washer and dryer and any kitchen devise you desire is there. Sergio is actually from Ecuador but has lived in southern California for many years. His sister Carmen lives in the building next door and takes care of the property. He just happened to be in Ecuador while we were there. I had started talking to him several months before we went and each and every time he was so warm and helpful. Very seldom anymore to you find people who gives SERVICE. Sergio is all about SERVICE. We felt as if we were on Rodeo Drive with the red carpets rolled out. We can't give this property enough accolades. We would recommend it to anyone. Our grown children, friends, anyone traveling to that area, you can't get better and the host is a jewel. We visited several cities all within 2 or 3 hours of the property, and the driver Ivan, we can't say enough good things about. We would like to bring him and his entire family to Arkansas, in the U.S.A. to work for us. What a wonderful two weeks. The place we stay is half the vacation to us. Prepare to fall in love.

2015 Christmas Holidays in Quito

  • 5 of 5

My wife, my adult two sons with their lady friends, and I spent the 2015 Christmas holidays in Quito and the surroundings. Our home base was 258550 VRBO -- a lovely penthouse overlooking the north central section of the city.

The owner is an Ecuadorian who is now living in Southern California, and he made it very simple to make the lease arrangements. Our exchange of emails were very promptly exchanged. The contract was easy to follow and the owner quickly answered any questions that we had. He was quite helpful in lining up chartered vans to and from the new airport and making day trips.

The 4 bedroom apartment was well laid out, spacious, nicely furnished, and totally equipped. We nightly watched the twinkling lights come from the west up the sides of the Andes from the large balcony.

The owner’s agent, Carmen, lived in our apartment complex and she met us when arrived, answered our questions regarding taxis, restaurants, shopping, etc. throughout the 10 days, and giving us a warm embraced as we finally departed. We felt like we were dealing with an old friend.

Finally (a little serendipity) when we briefly stopped for buying some bakery goods while we were returning from an Otovalo outing - and the automobile that was parked next to us we ran into the owner, his wife, and his adult family members. What a pleasant surprise!

I would highly recommend this VRBO 258550 penthouse for anyone who will be visiting Quito. Surely we will use it again when we are back in Quito.

Great location in Quito

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse apartment lived up to its billing. From its lofty 9th floor location for views over the sprawling city of Quito. The outdoor patio was very spacious and the interior was very clean and allowed our 4 person group to spread out with privacy and comfort. Location is great and in a very safe neighborhood, easy to walk to the Super Maxi grocery store 2 blocks away if you want just about any food to have in the place and very walkable to Mariscal Sucre neighborhood of Stores and restaurants. Took taxis everywhere for around $4-$5 per trip. Stayed for 7 days and loved the City and the Apartment very much. Our host, arranged for us to be picked up at the airport late at night and personally met us at the apartment when we arrived. Thanks for a great time. Would highly recommend this wonderful apartment to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you Erin for your nice review. I'm glad you and your friends enjoyed your stay in my apartment, and got to go to places nearby as restaurants, museums, parks, grocery markets, Plaza Foch in La Mariscal, etc. Its amazing views of city and mountains plus its huge balcony are other features which makes this pace a unique and relaxing experience while visiting Ecuador. And thank you for recommending my place to others. Sincerely, Sergio

Wonderful Time and Property in Quito

  • 5 of 5

Hi! Our family had the great opportunity to use the Apartment for our short 3 day stay in Quito at the beginning of the Thanksgiving Holiday in the states. Everything leading up to our using the apartment went amazingly well and the owner Sergio was prompt in getting back to me as well as being extremely helpful with other aspects of the trip as well, simply put our trip to Quito would not have gone as smoothly if not for the great help from Sergio as well as the wonderful accommodations of the apartment.

We arrived late on the 21st and there were 2 arrival parties. Prior to arrival I was worried that we would not have time to get some basic necessities for the first morning and was assured that there would be some in the unit - there were and then some, so hot coffee in the morning was had by all. Sergio also helped to arrange a driver for us during our trip and he was nothing short of spectacular and very friendly and accommodating, Gonzalo went above and beyond and we could not have been more grateful! 2 trips to the airport the first night and a quick return trip for my mothers bag which had all her medicine in it - I felt bad as it was close to 3 in the morning. Gonzalo also was our driver for the ensuing 3 days and worked well with our schedules and what we wanted to see - it was perfect.

The apartment itself was fantastic!!!! Great views of the mountains greeted us every morning and a huge patio for us to get fresh air and stretch out. The apartment met all of our needs (Mother 81, 4 of us in our 50's and 2 teenagers 15). This was a trip in honor of our father that loved Ecuador as we lived here as children and it was important for all of us to be together and the unit did not disappoint. It's in a great part of town, near many shops, restaurants and a large grocery store around the corner. We used the kitchen every morning for huge breakfasts and enjoyed the large table to gather around to eat and later to play card games as we winded down our days. Everything was in the unit and everyone was comfortable! I wish we had stayed longer in Quito as this was the perfect place to stay together with family (much less so in the hotels later in Guayaquil). If we return to Quito at some time in the future, I do hope Sergio will still be sharing his beautiful place with travelers, I'd rent it again in a heartbeat!
