About Wolfgang Boerchers

Dear Guest! We are a family with German origin and live in Ecuador for many years. We have worked in the hospitality business, managing a travel agency for a couple of years, now we run our own Wantara Suites.

Our service is flawless and we can help our guests by organizing all the little treats that make travelling easier.

We love to share our uniquely peaceful spaces with interesting people from all over the world. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding your trip to Ecuador. We would be happy to host you!

Wolfgang Boerchers purchased this condo in 2006

Why Wolfgang Boerchers chose Quito

Fascinated by the magic of the 'Old Town' where authentic Ecuadorian traditions are still alive and can be experienced in its streets and places, we decided that this is the place we want to live. After a year of extensive search we finally found this treasure. It took us three years to carefully renovate the place. We created seven independent units cautious of not loosing the colonial charm of the property. Art objects in the lush garden and cozy living spaces gives 'Wantara' a special flair.

You can't do better in Quito

You can't do better in Quito
  • 5 out of 5
Our family has been back from Quito nearly a month, and still every day one of us finds something about the Estrella Suite or Wantara's gardens to reminisce about aloud---the thoughtful and gourmet inventory of kitchenwares, the little wood stool that doubled as a child's step-up, the spa-like shower, the resident hummingbirds. Wolfgang and Andi have looked after every detail, creating an ideal home away from home. To families traveling with young children, we recommend the indoor and outdoor play spaces at Cumanda, a 5-minute walk; an afternoon at Parque El Ejido, where the high-thrill rides on the playground include an actual zip-line; and pizza from the walk-away window on the Ronda.

Contemporary retreat in historic Quito

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of four (2 adults and 2 teen daughters) stayed a week in the Estrella suite. It is well located, within a few minutes walking distance from historic Quito (our favourite area to visit), and inexpensive and efficient taxis and buses will get you anywhere you want to go. The most welcoming hosts are informative, friendly, positive. Wolfgang arranged special transportation for us and made excellent recommendations of restaurants and sightseeing. The apartment was very clean, with a well-stocked fridge for our morning breakfast. The design is modern and clever and the surrounding gardens are most enchanting, especially when one considers it is smack in the middle of a bustling city. We enjoyed aperitifs outside after touring all day and picked fresh herbs from the garden for our evening meals! I highly recommend a stay at Wantara.

exceeded expectations

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at Wantara Suites was a delight. Although, located a bit outside the centro historico it was an easy walk to the major points of interest and, as importantly, offered a quiet respite from the chaos of the centro. Having come from Banos where car alarms and crowing roosters awakened us at odd hours, Wantara was peaceful and largely noise free. Wolfgang was an engaging host at looked after our needs with sincere attention and concern. The suite itself was fully equipped, had plenty of hot water and good internet connectivity. There was even a beer and coffee in the suite at our arrival, something we appeciated after a four hour bus ride from Banos. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

Do Not Miss Staying At Wantara Garden Suites - Quito's Undiscovered Gem
  • 5 out of 5
Our family spent three wonderful nights at Wantara Suites. Our suite was perfect for a family of four and had a well-appointed kitchen and beautiful finishes. Wolfgang and Andi were fantastic hosts! Since we arrived late at night, they had thoughtfully provided breakfast for us to make the following morning, recommended their favorite restaurants in La Ronda and arranged transportation to Otavalo for us with their driver. The Wifi is great and our kids really enjoyed relaxing and reading their books in the hammocks on the open air patio. We can't recommend Wantara Suites highly enough.

Loved it

  • 5 out of 5
I have been coming to Quito for 15 years and this is far and away the best place I have stayed at in the city. Andi and Wolfgang restored an old colonial building in a way that both preserves much of the original architecture and adds modern touches and comforts. It's simply a gorgeous place. Quito can be noisy and busy and yet coming back here after a long day was like retreating to a quiet garden oasis. It's in the old, historic district, so you are within walking distance to all the plazas, churches, and interesting things this part of the city is known for. You can also easily get to modern Quito--the trolley station is only a short block and a half away. Another wonderful thing about staying here is that you never feel as though you are separated from the life of real Quito--this isn't located in a tourist neighborhood, where you might only see tourists or the Ecuadorian elite. This is in a 'popular' neighborhood. School children come and go to school in the morning from the houses around you, people are out on the streets watching and discussing football matches, and you buy your beer or groceries from a corner store like everyone else on the street and get to know the shop owners by name. Andi and Wolfgang are also the best hosts. They live in one of the units and are always there to answer any question or help you with anything you might need. I have to say, too, that the beer and breakfast waiting in the fridge when you arrive was probably my favorite touch of all--it really gives a sense of the kind of place you're in. One last thing--I have stayed at other suite/ apartment places in Quito and usually have to buy something like a coffee maker or good knife or proper frying pan or whatever. Here, instead, you'll have everything you need, including small but important items like salt, pepper, fresh water, and so on, things that are annoying to buy when only staying for a short while (which you, appropriately, replace if they run out). I met many return visitors here during my stay and I'll be staying here the next time I come to Quito.

Quiet sanctuary from city

  • 5 out of 5
We were only going to stay five days and we ended up staying 12 and felt sad to leave. Andi and Wolfgang have done a beautiful job with the property--comfortable, artistic, perfect. They were very helpful in many ways, always responding quickly to inquiries before our arrival and helping us, non Spanish speakers, get around. I would hope to return again soon and would recommend it to everyone. I feel lucky to have found this place Wantara, to spend time.

Quito's colonial center is a UNESCO world heritage site. Our condo is located on historical Calle Loja which is mentioned since the time of the Incas. Towards the street we conserve impressive, 400 year old adobe walls, the main building dates back to 1904 and was used as suburban residence of a wealthy family.

The beautiful Plaza de Independencia, many churches, museums and calle 'La Ronda', with all its authentic gastronomic offers are just a short walk away.

Quitos eco-bus 'trole' stops right at the corner and/or the cheap taxi service get you to the modern city in 15-20 minutes.
