Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in La Colmena - Quito Vacation House

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located in Conocoto, only 25-minutes from downtown Quito and the Nord of the city, in the valley of the Chillos, in Conocoto, you and your family will be able to enjoy your vacation in the capital of Ecuador. Noiseless, just the chirping of birds in a European style house full of comfort and good taste. All of its rooms have a view to the garden, a terrace shadowed by a beautiful bougainvillea for eating outdoors or having appetizers in company of hummingbirds that are drinking nectar from the many flowers. You can enjoy the view of the mountains of the Andes mountain chain..

Gated house with intercom, automatic entry and remote access for guests/visitors/taxi/food delivery.

You can stroll down the property which is totally private (4.000 square meters). A 6-minute drive will get you to the largest shopping center of Quito, full of fashionable boutiques, banks, light food, Ecuadorian traditional food restaurants, bookstores, supermarkets, cinemas, play zones, local and international phone booths, etc.

It is a great opportunity for visiting Quito. The downtown area and the north of the city are only at 25 minutes. For transportation you can hire a Rent-a-Car that we can arrange or hire the services of a local private chauffer or make use of the taxis that are not only economical but safe.

About Vicky

My name is Vicky Frey and my professional background is in acting. A few years ago, I decided to make one of my homes available to guests. Since that time, I've been delighted to meet a number of interesting people and have had the chance to exchange ideas, practice my English and to help introduce them to the customs and culture of Ecuador. I know my country and my city well and have been able to refer my guests to fine restaurants, little-known tourist sites and markets, shopping, theater, concerts and a variety of other local and regional events, as well as to help my guests with their own planned travels and agenda. During their visit, I remain in residence in a small home close by with my daughter Pamela, and we delight in helping our guests with the information they need for a wonderful stay. We speak Spanish, German, English and Italian. Our experience has been that our visitors arrive as guests and leave as our friends. I hope you will visit us.

Vicky purchased this house in 1984

Why Vicky chose Quito

Years ago we wanted to buy a property in a valley surrounded by a forest. My family and I always wished to have a special place to relax and enjoy the nature and a great weather, plenty of sunshine, where the nights are not so cold. As well, we chose this property in order to be close to the city, it is a paradise where my daughters have grown and enjoyed the sun and the pool.

What makes this house unique

It's nice to have a place that has all the modern city benefits and at the same time is a place where there is peace and opportunity for in the evening, finding oneself in the heat of the fireplace and a glass of wine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful home with beautiful gardens, great views, and an excellent host

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We would recommend this great home. Even though Vicky was not in Quito throughout our stay, she checked in and had others make sure our needs were met. The house has great views of the Valley de Los Chillos and an amazing yard filled with gardens and a large grass field, wonderful (and warm) pool, large patio with hammock and a covered gazebo with a ping pong table. The kids loved the pool and ping pong table and the yard for playing soccer and spent lots of time on the patio in the hammock.

The house has everything you need with a full kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and two big entertaining areas (living room and sunroom). Cristina arrived every other day to help with the trash, bedding and general clean up and she was great.

Two dogs on the property are friendly and the kids (initially apprehensive as we don't have dogs at home) grew to love them after a few days.

The commute into Quito is an easy taxi ride ($15-$20) or a city bus ($0.50) after walking 6 blocks down a steep hill to a main intersection. We went into Quito frequently and it would take roughly 35-45 minutes by bus and then we would grab a taxi to get to the historic district or other destinations.

Definitely not ideal if you want to be right in Quito but if you don't mind the commute and are looking for a compound to relax and avoid the urban hustle, this is a great option. Overall this was an ideal spot for us with young kids (Ages 4, 6 and 9).

Semana excelente

  • 5 of 5

For the spanish speaking fellows:

Fue una semana muy agradable en la casa de Vicky, disfrutando la tranquilidad, el jardin bonito, la casa completamente amueblada y equipada, y la ayuda y cuidado de Vicky misma. Si debemos recomendar una casa vacacional a seis personas en la cercanía de Quito, sin duda será esta casa.

My kids and I had the best time ever at this nice home! Vicky and her sweet daughter Pamela were extremely welcoming. This home has a beautiful view of the Valley de Los chillos with a beautiful garden. This place is very peaceful, relaxing and secure. If you are looking to relax and have a great time in Quito this is the place! I will be back with my family sometime soon! I will recommend to anyone to stay here. This is the best choice ever! I also want to thank Vicky for inviting me to have a cup of coffee at her Place. Vicky, you are a sweet lady and I wish I had more time to get to know you. Thank you for everything.

Much appreciated

  • 5 of 5

This house has a definite charm, is comfortable and the gardens are + whole property is perfect for a family with young kids as ours. The house is South of Quito so perfect for southern escapes. Travelling around town and north is harder but no location can have it all. The neighbourhood centro and close by family park are perfect for a rest day. Vicky was very kind and helpful. The house is fully equipped. Truly happy I found this place!
